Jacob, there have been some changes. Could you stop for some supplies on your way to work?

Jacob Brosky                                                                       11:04 A.M.

Oh, sure thing. But I thought that we got everything yesterday.

I just got a call from Ms. Arden’s wedding planner. She wants to add 40 cupcakes to her order. I’ve already put them in the oven, but we’re all out of decorative silver beads. Also, we need more yellow icing to mix the right colors.

Jacob Brosky                                                                        11:08 A.M.

OK, so we need at least two bags of silver beads and four tubes of yellow icing, I’m guessing.

Nicky Candela                                                                      11:10 A.M.

Exactly. We’ll finish that this morning and then begin work on the food items for Mr. and Mrs. Morton’s anniversary party.

Notice for Aston Towers Residents

This apartment building is nearly 30 years old, and it has been quite some time since it underwent major improvements. Moreover, the Residents’ Association has been asking management to upgrade the apartments for several months now, and we agree that the time has come to make these changes. However, this may lead to some disturbances for a short time.

The renovations are planned to take place over three stages:

  • Stage One, April 18 to May 11: Renovating the exterior of the building
  • Stage Two, May 13 to June 24: Improving the interior corridors
  • Stage Three, June 30 to September 1: Necessary improvements to individual units

The first two stages will generate a certain amount of construction noise during the day, between the hours of 10 A.M. and 4 P.M. For the repairs to individual units, we will be in touch with you shortly to determine the necessary work and arrange dates for repairpersons to visit your unit.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Bluecoats Look to a Brighter Future

Last night the management of the Kansas City Bluecoats finally made the long-expected announcement that the team will be moving into a new stadium in a suburb just within the city limits of Kansas City. — [1] —.

The Bluecoats were one of the top teams in American football two decades ago, winning the national championship once and making it to the final game on another occasion. — [2] —. But recent years have been more difficult, with disappointing placements in the league and a fan base that has been attracted to other more successful sports teams in the region.

Moving will allow for cheaper ticket prices, more parking spaces, and easier access from other areas. — [3] —. As for the team, it will get to train using state-of-the-art facilities. Work will begin on the currently unnamed new stadium this month and is expected to be finished within two years.

Kansas City mayor Lester Hickman celebrated the team’s move, saying, “This is great news for the team, and we look forward to helping the Bluecoats rise back up to their previous levels of success.”

Questions 162-165 refer to the following online chat discussion.

Gina Adenan    [10:09 A.M.]       I just got word from the boss. A manufacturing problem discovered at our Maryland factory will lead to an immediate recall of all T-20 and T-21 model toasters our company sold in the past year.

Hal Anderson    [10:12 A.M.]       I heard about that issue earlier this morning. A recall is going to be a huge undertaking. We’ll have to post a notice in some major newspapers.

Oliver Lee          [10:14 A.M.]       That’s right. And we’ll also have to put the same information on our Web site.

Hal Anderson     [10:16 A.M.]        That would be the best way to reach our customers abroad. Katie, can you draft an announcement if l forward you all of the details?

Katie Ford          [10:19 A.M.]       Of course. I’ll put it together as quickly as I can and get a list of press contacts from marketing.

Gina Adenan       [10:22 A.M.]       Thanks, Katie. Oliver, as you are running the call center, you’ll need to train your staff to handle inquiries regarding the recall. There will be a lot of calls from the public, I’m sure.

Oliver Le             [10:25 A.M.]       I’ll get right on it. We dealt with a similar issue three years ago, so I know what needs to be done.

Gina Adenan       [10:28 A.M.]      Okay, thanks everyone. It sounds like we should be able to handle everything.

Questions 169-171 refer to the following memo.

MEMORANDUM

To: All maintenance staff

From: Janice Lai, Supervisor

Subject: Daily report submissions

Date: December 16

I realize you all have demanding schedules, and we appreciate your hard work. But you must comply with the policies regarding the completion of your daily reports in a timely manner. Let me remind you that all report information must be fully entered by the end of each work day for the hours that you spent on maintenance tasks. In November, I received several time sheets more than two weeks late, and I still have some that have yet to be provided.

 

Additionally, for those reports that were submitted on time, I noticed that many were missing important details. Remember that these reports are used not only to track the number of maintenance tasks, but also to determine how efficient we were at completing them.

In order to address this issue, a new policy will go into effect next month. I will be checking your reports weekly to ensure they are complete and posted on time on the company Web site. If there are any problems, I will follow up on them with you in person.

I appreciate all of your cooperation in this and hope that these issues cease to continue from now on.

Thoughts on Sharing Economy

By Adriana Solo

In recent years, mobile applications and Web sites have made it easier and cheaper for people to do things like get a ride, find a place to stay, or arrange a babysitter. Referred to as “the sharing economy,” this new Internet-dependent system brings more wage-earning opportunities to a wider range of people. However, as the practice of purchasing services from individual people rather than conventional businesses grows in popularity, some municipalities have opted to regulate it, or even ban it outright.

Ghorinburg, for instance, has emerged as a strong opponent of the sharing economy and the local government has prohibited residents from participating in it. Mayor of the city, Robert Smollet, who became mayor last year in a landslide victory, says that its advantages are not as great as they seem on the surface. “When you can hire someone to work on a freelance basis for a lower rate, why bother going to a company that will charge much more? Ultimately, the sharing economy can cause businesses to close and the people who work for them to lose their jobs.”

Ghorinburg does not stand alone, as other municipalities across the nation are following suit. In smaller cities, like Browenville, Marog, and Quentintown, where local businesses play a vital role in the growth of the economy, restrictions have likewise been adopted. Only time will tell whether attitudes remain this way, as technology is certain to spread to even more aspects of our lives.

DATE:           April 30

Evan,

I checked the Port Royal Cruises Web site you mentioned. I agree that it would be a fun activity for those of us from the company attending the conference in Jamaica in June. I contacted the company to find out about renting the ship, and the cost is $7,500 per day including meals, staff, accommodation, and tours. So, a two-day rental would fall within our budget. We could depart on Friday and be back in Port Royal on Sunday morning, in time for our return flights to Edmonton in the afternoon.

If needed, the ship has audiovisual equipment we can use, and Internet access is available. It also has a paid laundry service, and the cruise line’s bus can pick us up at the Mont Drake Resort where the conference is taking place.

I’ll proceed with the booking once you give me your consent.

The Truth About Supplements? (continued from page 19)

So, ideally, maintaining a varied diet is enough to satisfy the nutritional requirements of adults aged 65 and older. However, some seniors may find this difficult to do, as they lack time and find preparing nutritious meals to be too challenging. In such cases, many doctors agree that taking vitamins and other supplements may be helpful. Even so, physicians believe that these supplements should be carefully regulated so as not to cause unintended harm. According to a controlled study1 by the Research Institute for Aging, some vitamins and minerals can be toxic when ingested in large amounts. For this reason, getting the advice of a trusted and qualified physician before beginning a vitamin regimen is recommended.

1Health Note was granted advance access to the study, which will soon be available for publication.
