Are you letting high prices get in the way of your fitness goals?

Everyone is talking about yoga these days—in magazines, on television, and even during chats with friends. But while we’ve all heard about the many health benefits that yoga provides, looking around yoga stores can be intimidating. With even a simple yoga mat costing up to $50 or more, yoga can seem like an expensive activity to get into!

Well, not anymore. Merchandise at FlexiWorld Yoga ranges from top brand name yoga equipment to cheaper gear for beginners. And we can afford to offer all of our products at lower prices than department stores and other retailers because we operate entirely online.

So if you’re thinking of trying out yoga, but don’t want to overspend, head to www. flexiworldyoga.com!

Frank Cameron     2:26 P.M.

That’s not good news. What’s causing the delay?

He says the plant can’t proceed until the engineering department finishes testing the product. It’s taking them longer than anticipated.

But we’re scheduled to ship the computers to stores at the beginning of next month. Do you think that it will be possible to meet that target?

Not a chance given the current situation.

Frank Cameron      2:33 P.M.

I see. How do you think the sales representatives will take the news?

They’ll be fine as long as we inform them in advance. At this point, we just need to focus on shipping the best possible product to market, even if it is a bit late.

Belajar University to Open High-Tech Hub 

Malaysia’s Belajar University yesterday announced that it is beginning to build a new campus in Malacca City that is expected to be completed by the end of next year. The new campus is part of an outreach strategy to encourage students from other parts of Malaysia to apply to the prestigious university, the campuses of which are primarily located in the capital Kuala Lumpur. “Although we have seen an increase in the number of applicants from outside Kuala Lumpur in recent years,” said university vice-chancellor Abdullah Mohammed, “this new campus is sure to attract even more.”

The new campus is also being partially funded by the Malaysian government, which considers it a key part of its plan to develop the southern part of the country into a high-technology hub. Because of this, the campus will feature a number of state-of-the-art computer laboratories that will be used to develop new types of microchips and computer processors. A new high-speed rail link between the capital and Malacca City is also being constructed by the government as part of the process of encouraging technology companies to relocate to the smaller town.

Qing Weihai, governor of Malacca State, said, “We welcome this decision by the Malaysian government and Belajar University and expect the new campus to create thousands of new jobs in the region by encouraging businesses to move here.”

SUBJECT : Publication information

DATE:  July 19

Dear Ms. Shah,

I am pleased to tell you that Casper Publishing has come out with an important title that I think QRC Bookstore will be interested in selling. — [1] —.

The 10th edition of Economics for Business has been completed and contains revised multimedia content and new exercises in DVD format. We have one version for students and another for teachers. The students’ version is packaged for affordability, while the teachers’ version features several premium extras, such as preloaded presentation. — [2] —. Seeing as QRC Bookstore mainly sells university textbooks, it would make perfect sense for your shop to carry both versions of this publication or any of the other new titles in our catalog. — [3] —.

If you are interested in ordering, download the form on our Web site at www.caspub.com/orders and send it to us by post. — [4] —. For any further information, feel free to respond to this e-mail or contact me directly at 555-3044.

Good afternoon, everyone. As I’m sure you all heard on Monday, the board of directors has scheduled the opening of the Erik Masterson art exhibit for next month. We need to start letting people know about it, and I’d like to get a sense of how everything’s going.

Aaron Cobble       [2:04 P.M.]

I finished designing the personalized invitations for everyone who attended our last exhibition, but the mailing list hasn’t been compiled yet. George, do you think this might cause any problems?

George Duffy        [2:10 P.M.]

A delay of one day is fine. But the guests should receive their invitations before Saturday when we publish a press release about the opening. So, we need to get them to the courier by Thursday at the very latest.

Clara Dalton          [2:12 P.M.]

All right. I’ll ask Steven to take care of it. Deborah, how about the posters?

Deborah Emerso   [2:14 PM.]

They’re ready to be printed. Do you have any thoughts on where I should tell our volunteers to put them up?

Clara Dalton          [2:16 P.M.]

I’ve heard that Masterson’s work is popular with college students.

Deborah Emerson [2:20 P.M.]

Oh, what about Randall University? The gallery is within walking distance of it.

Clara Dalton          [2:21 P.M.]

That sounds great. Maybe we should give a presentation on campus to promote the exhibit as well.

Deborah Emerson [2:22 P.M.]

Sure. I’ll call the university to check on that.

Spring is always the busiest season for fitness centers as individuals prepare to get in shape for the coming summer months.

The head of product design for RockTech, Nancy Flores, said that the new equipment is sleek in appearance and incorporates the latest technological advances.

Questions 181-185 refer to the following notice and e-mail.

Notice to Visitors

We’ve had a great summer season here at the Newport County Amusement Park and Zoo, but as the winter season approaches, we’re going to be closing sections of the park for maintenance and repairs.

Starting on October 1, the Mach One rollercoaster will be closed for inspections and repairs until the beginning of the next summer season. In addition, certain animal enclosures will be shut down temporarily to allow workers to perform needed renovations. These measures are vital to ensure the future safety and enjoyment of all park visitors.

To make up for the inconvenience, we have some new winter attractions coming up. The days may be getting shorter, but that just gives us a great excuse to hold a fireworks show, every day at 7 P.M. from October 22 to December 4. On top of that, all of our restaurants will be serving our brand-new winter menu starting on September 30. The menu was created by celebrity chef Alexandre Mapouche and is based on European winter delicacies.

If you have any questions about these changes, please ask any member of our helpful and informative staff.

From: Sandra Higson <Sandra1973@zipmail.com>

Subject: Feedback

Dear madam or sir,

I would like to report an issue I had at the Newport County Amusement Park and Zoo regarding the closure of one of your rides. My son had wanted to visit your park for many months so he could ride the Mach One rollercoaster. I finally found the time to take him, and he was very excited. However, upon arriving at the park, we saw the notice outside the ticket office announcing that the Mach One was closed for maintenance.

We decided to visit the park anyway, as we had traveled all the way from Colebrook, but my son was very disappointed. I believe that, at the very least, we are owed an apology since you did not announce the closure on your Web site; and perhaps we are even entitled to a refund of half the amount we paid for our tickets because the attraction we were most interested in was unavailable.

I look forward to your response.

Sandra Higson

Tea Tree Eco-Resorts Set to Open in Mexico by Year’s End

By Consuela Hidalgo

International hotel chain Tea Tree Eco-Resorts is in the final stages of building a 22-acre resort on Mexico’s Mayan Riviera. The first visitors are expected to arrive by December 21. Like other Tea Tree Eco-Resorts in the Philippines, Thailand, and Greece, the new hotel will be as eco-friendly as possible. “We have solar panels generating electricity and heating the water, for instance. Furthermore, none of the local farmers from whom we source our ingredients for regional specialties, such as pork wrapped in banana leaves and citrus-marinated chicken soup, use any chemical pesticides at all,” said general manager Jose Perez. The plan is for the facilities to be built around naturally growing trees and plant life, with structures blending in with the jungle. Further details can be found at www.teatreeecoresorts.com/mexico.

We have several activities scheduled for this week!

COMMENTS:

My wife and I were interested in a sailboat tour but were informed that the boat only held 24 passengers and was full. So, we inquired about a trip to the Mayan city, but it was also completely booked. Thankfully, we managed to go on the January 19 outing and enjoyed it very much. I recommend that more seats be available for trips, especially during high tourist season.

Thank you for your time!

Dear Ms. Montessori,

As you are probably aware, my contract will expire at the end of March. We have already discussed my plan to retire, so hopefully this does not come as a surprise. This letter serves as official notification of my intention to step down as the company’s vice president of finance. I would be happy to stay on for an additional month to train and assist any replacement you choose.

I have truly enjoyed my time with Homestead Properties and appreciate all the support I’ve been provided over the years. I will miss working with my wonderful colleagues, but I will stay in touch.

Thank you very much for all the opportunities you and the board of directors have afforded me.

You’ve likely heard the news about Mr. Grainger. I would like to organize a dinner party in his honor. You did such a wonderful job of planning our awards dinner last fall, and I was wondering if you’d be willing to take care of the arrangements for this event as well.

We plan to spend up to $6,000 on the party’s location. The board and I will take care of the gift. The date would be March 27, which is a Friday. I can send you a list of people we would like to invite later today. I imagine 50-60 people will be attending.
