Pamela Carter [3:44 P.M.]
Hi, Oswaldo. Did you look at the pictures of the East Fourth Street property?


Oswaldo Medrano [3:45 P.M.]
Yes, I did. Given that many of our designers and editors are working remotely, is all that space really necessary?


Pamela Carter [3:47 P.M.]
Yes, but as we grow more will be working on site.


Oswaldo Medrano [3:48 P.M.]
That may not be for a while, though.


Pamela Carter [3:50 P.M.]
We should consider both our immediate and long-term needs. The building offers ample room to allow for staff expansion.


Oswaldo Medrano [3:52 P.M.]
That's true. Our requirements may change. Especially when we start signing contracts with more authors.

151. At what type of business do the people most likely work?

From: Edith Howe
Re: Pelligrine Rental Agreement, 259 Grove Street house
Date: May 4


I just received a call from John Pelligrine. According to him, the figures in the rental agreement you e-mailed him this morning reflect the first quote he was given on April 24, not the negotiated figures agreed upon in the subsequent meeting on April 29.

Mr. Pelligrine had planned to move into the property this weekend, May 7-8, and he wants to make sure the rental paperwork is in place before he finalizes the moving arrangements. He said that he has been offered another property, also on Grove Street, and will proceed to rent that property if he cannot finalize his agreement with us by the end of office hours today.

Since I'm out of town, I will leave this urgent matter in your hands. Please contact Mr. Pelligrine immediately and e-mail him a corrected agreement. Please copy me on all correspondence regarding this matter.

Thank you.

ADELAIDE (2 February)–According to a recent report, ice cream sales in the region have fallen by nearly twenty percent this year. The decrease has surprised many, especially given the remarkably hot weather this summer. Local vendors pointed to an increase in the wholesale price of milk, which has caused their own prices to rise significantly.

To offset the decrease in sales, many ice cream stores are stocking alternative desserts that do not contain dairy. For example, Giordano's Dessert Shoppe in Wellington has begun selling fruit ices. According to analysts, because ice cream is a specialized market, traditional strategies such as increased advertising and customer discounts are not as effective as they are in other industries.

156. According to the article, why have ice cream sales decreased?
157. How are vendors responding to the trend?

Tamara Elkind / 3:32 P.M.
Thanks for attending the virtual sales meeting earlier this afternoon. Are there any further questions?


Judith Messer / 3:35 P.M.
Georg and I are unclear about how the new sales territory maps affect existing customers. Do the new territories apply only to new customers?


Tamara Elkind / 3:37 P.M.
No, the new territories apply to both new and existing customers.


Judith Messer / 3:38 P.M.
So, does that mean I will no longer get commissions from my Swiss customer, NNC Systems?


Tamara Elkind / 3:39 P.M.
Right. All existing clients in southern Switzerland go to Georg.


Georg Hertz / 3:41 P.M.
But what if I agree to let Judith keep NNC Systems?


Tamara Elkind / 3:42 P.M.
NNC Systems is a big client.


Georg Hertz / 3:44 P.M.
Yes, but I'd rather not interrupt a productive relationship. This one client is not that important to me.


Tamara Elkind / 3:45 P.M.
I don't see it as interrupting, necessarily. However, if you are willing, Georg, I might be able to make an exception if our president approves it.


Judith Messer / 3:47 P.M.
What if I talk to the client?


Tamara Elkind / 3:48 P.M.
I don't think that's appropriate.


Judith Messer / 3:49 P.M.


Georg Hertz / 3:49 P.M.
OK. We'll wait to hear back from you.

Matt Alcheri's Adventurous Leap

By Erika Quade, Badger Dispatch

MILWAUKEE (12 January)-Matt Alcheri has created music for dozens of films, including Seeking Eleanor, which earned him the Cinearts Award for Best Original Music. Recently, he has lent his considerable composing skills to Final Chance, a video game produced by Silhouette Gaming Systems (SGS), which has been creating interactive entertainment for 10 years now.

Mr. Alcheri was introduced to the managing director of SGS, Harry Jansson, at a social event hosted by Ms. Chandra Bixby, who, on occasion, has collaborated with Mr. Alcheri in composing film scores. Mr. Jansson proceeded to invite Mr. Alcheri to write the music for Final Chance.

In a phone interview, Mr. Alcheri said that he was "quite impressed" with the graphics and animation of Final Chance. "It left me with the sense that I was watching a movie, and so I did not hesitate to collaborate on the project," said the renowned composer. He further remarked that writing the score for the video game was virtually identical to composing the music for a movie.

"All I had to do was write music that matches the atmosphere of the various scenes depicted in the game," he added.

As for Mr. Jansson, he said in the same interview that with pre-orders for Final Chance standing currently at 200,000 copies, he has no doubt that the latest SGS product, scheduled to be released on March 20, will be a success.

Thinking of converting your home to solar energy? With Tilt Solar you can do it in just four simple steps!

1. Set up a home consultation.
Our experienced energy evaluators will help you determine whether a full or partial conversion to solar energy is best for you. Our evaluators will analyze your energy usage, the amount of sunlight your area receives, and the size and angle of your roof.

2. Approve your design.
Once the evaluators determine the number of solar panels needed, our expert designers will create the most energy-efficient system for your home. They will also help you choose the most cost-effective payment plan. Unlike other companies, Tilt Solar offers various financing options.

3. Schedule your installation.
Our certified installers will install your system at your convenience. Installation can typically be completed in one day, depending on the size and angle of your roof. Once installed, the system needs to be serviced only once every five years. Maintenance plans are available.

4. Start saving money on your energy bills!
As soon as your new system is operating, you'll start saving money on your monthly energy bills. It's that easy! The Tilt Solar system will immediately begin collecting energy from the sun. That energy can be used to power lights, household appliances, electronic devices, and much more. Don't be discouraged by the high price at the outset–within three to four years, you will save so much money that the system will pay for itself!

Expansion Excites Lonsdale

September 20—Paso Tech Corporation completed the first phase of its new expansion project last week. Paso Tech, one of the leading producers of elements used in high-definition computer monitors and projectors, completed construction on one of three new factories to be built over the next four years. —[1]—. The first of the factories, built in Australia's Lonsdale, is the company's most sizable factory and will eventually be responsible for 55% of the company's output each year.

The new factory has brought with it an increase in jobs for local residents. –[2]–. More than 1,000 construction workers were hired to help build the massive factory and its surrounding structures.

Paso Tech's President Goro Hashimoto stated, "This was a major endeavor for our company. When we started this construction project, we realized that it was going to take a lot of money, resources, and staff. —[3]—. Not only did we hire locals to expand the physical plant, but we also added many workers to our full-time payroll. We hope to be able to do the same in Japan. We plan to begin building in Tokyo very soon." The company's headquarters are currently located in Osaka, Japan.

Additional factories will be constructed in some of Paso Tech's other locations, including in Brazil and South Africa. While the remaining factories will not be as large as the Lonsdale location, they will still require additional resources and labor. —[4]—.

172. What is true of Paso Tech?
173. What is stated about the Paso Tech factory in Lonsdale?
174. Where will the next Paso Tech factory be built?
175. In which of the positions marked [1], [2], [3], and [4] does the following sentence best belong? "We were pleased to see the impact our project had on the local workforce."

Trubridge Contracting

To: All Trubridge Contracting Employees
From: Trubridge Contracting Acquisitions Committee

As you know, Trubridge Contracting will officially merge with Estefen Builders on November 21. We feel that this merger will benefit both companies. Like us, Estefen specializes in commercial construction, and this merger will solidify our position at the forefront of the ever-growing Lexington City building trade. In addition, the creation of Trubridge Estefen will enable us to take on more complex development projects such as the Faust Center and the Hull Street Mall expansion.

Members of each department will meet during the week of October 20 to discuss some of the logistical details of the merger, as well as the planned expansion and renovation of the Trubridge offices so they can effectively accommodate Estefen's 113 employees. If you have questions you would like to see addressed during the meetings, please feel free to e-mail the meeting chairpersons in advance.

Note that both Stan Trubridge and Zack Estefen will attend each meeting.

Hi all,

I thoroughly enjoyed our work luncheon at Motano Grill last Monday. As a fellow Silen Consultants employee, I am thrilled to be part of the team headed to Edmonton to open our first branch there. At the meeting, I sensed our shared eagerness to land our first clients and begin advising firms in Edmonton on how best to use information technology in achieving their goals.

I appreciated the thoughts shared about the kind of office space that would be ideal. I have searched morbushrealty.ca for suites that meet our basic criteria and budget and have come up with a short list of possibilities for everyone to look over. Please see the attached document and respond with your comments.

Re: Office space

Dear all,

Thank you, Tom, for narrowing down our search to these options. It sounds like last Monday's team-planning meeting was very productive. I had hoped to be there, but my last-minute trip to Toronto couldn't be helped. Also, it looks like I am the last to comment on this e-mail discussion, so thank you for your patience.

Rosana, I appreciate the desire to locate in a spacious executive-style office, but I really feel we shouldn't compromise on the priority of being right in the heart of downtown. Is anyone familiar with Edmonton's public transit system? It would help to know if using it to commute would be a possibility.

I also agree with Tom's idea that we should have a presence at the technology fair in Edmonton. I will try to look into it next weekend when my wife and I go up to view some housing options. Also, I will be having lunch with an Edmonton executive who used to work for Silen Consultants, thanks to a connection made by Rosana. I will report any new insights learned.
