To: Sales Associates Team
From: Shein, Clifford
Date: November 22
Subject: Urgent matter

Dear Sales Associates,

The most recent edition of The Brooktown Weekly ran our advertisement with a misprint. It listed the end of our half-price sale as December 11 instead of December 1. While a correction will appear in the paper's next issue, it is to be expected that not all of our customers will be aware of the error. Therefore, if shoppers ask between December 2 and 11 about the sale, first apologize for the inconvenience and then offer them a coupon for 10% off any item they wish to purchase, either in the store or online.

Should customers have any further questions, please direct them to the floor manager.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Auckland Daily Chronicle
Business Briefs

AUCKLAND (6 June) - Ann Marie Haas, former executive director of Gear Good, a company that develops and sells software for bike-sharing companies, has a new but related position. –[1]–. Beginning in November, she will be general manager of City Wheels, a bike-sharing company in Auckland. –[2]–.

The move comes at an opportune moment for both Ms. Haas and City Wheels. Ms. Haas had worked for Gear Good in Wellington since the company was founded five years ago but was yearning to return to Auckland, where she grew up. City Wheels was looking for a new leader to oversee its planned expansion from 50 to 75 bike stations in Auckland. –[3]–. "I'm thrilled to join a company that's important to residents and tourists alike," Ms. Haas said.

The City Wheels system is simple and affordable for occasional use. –[4]–. The first thirty minutes of biking are free, and after that, the cost is $4 per hour or $20 per day. Ms. Haas said she is enthusiastic about this venture, both for herself and for the city of Auckland.–Tahei Davis, Staff Writer

153. What is the purpose of the article?
154. What does City Wheels expect to do?
155. In which of the positions marked [1], [2], [3] and [4] does the following sentence best belong? "A modest $5 registration fee is required to begin using City Wheels bikes."

Airport Expansion Continues

26 May—A major airport expansion project is under way in Onalia City. The project is estimated to cost $1.6 billion, and a new terminal is scheduled to open for international service in approximately one year.

The airport, however, sits on a confined piece of land, which presents significant challenges to increasing the number of takeoffs and landings. If the airport remains limited to its current two runways, the capacity to handle air traffic could be reached within three years.

To address the problem, officials overseeing the Onalia City Airport project have contracted a group of engineers from Wilford Engineering to explore the possibility of extending a third runway over the Pacific Ocean. The engineering firm will survey the area for six months before presenting their findings and recommending a plan of action.

Runways that extend over water are not unprecedented. This type of runway exists in places such as Gibraltar and Japan, which have faced similar challenges.

Dubai Ecological Construction Expo
Exhibit Hall Rules

Admission to the exhibit hall is restricted to exhibitors from qualified companies, exposition attendees, and logistics personnel.

Badges are required on the floor at all times, including during move-in and move-out days.

The number of badges assigned to each exhibitor will be based on the size of booth space the company has rented.

• Anyone on the floor who is not officially registered will be evicted from the show.

• False certification of any individual as a company's exhibition representative, or misuse of exhibitor badges, will be just cause for removing the exhibit from the floor.

Dear Mr. Galt,

Thank you again for agreeing to serve on the organizing committee for the Caribbean Professional Screenwriters (CPS) Conference. I am following up on our initial meeting about speakers and presenters.

I get the impression that Timothy Primus, our first choice, may be out of our price range. However, I've been pursuing some funding in the form of government grants. If these resources come through, I'll try to secure Mr. Primus; otherwise, Laura Tambie may be a good option. In the meantime, I hope your efforts to recruit the other six panelists for the "Meet and Learn" session will be successful.

Thank you,

You are scheduled to give your address on the opening day of the conference, Saturday, 10 July, at the Harlan Hotel in San Fernando, Trinidad. We have planned for you to speak for 30-45 minutes. Naturally, we will have technology on hand to enable you to show clips from your films, should you choose to do so.

This will be held on day two of the conference and will last approximately 90 minutes.

We are pleased to cover all your expenses for food, lodging, and travel both to and from San Fernando. However, as stated in the contract, return airfare can only be provided for those staying for and fully participating in both days of the conference.

New Equipment a Boon for LTL?
7 January

Tucked into a busy industrial area in Singapore, the LTL manufacturing facility is small, gray, and unassuming. But the building's nondescript exterior masks an abundance of color and activity inside. Early on a sunny December morning, two enormous new textile-printing machines were already churning out the largest swaths of fabric ever processed by the factory.

"Each machine is well over three meters wide," said LTL's Felicity Tong, who accompanied us on a tour of the factory floor. "Our machine operators are still learning to use the machines effectively, as you can see from this pile of rejected pieces," Ms. Tong remarked. "The machines are efficient, but mastering them is posing some challenges for our work crews."

The machines come with the potential for big profits. Company CEO Ravinder Kapur commented that the demand for his company's fabrics has grown in recent years. "These machines will allow us to print on vinyl and other materials that we had lacked the resources to work with," he said. "We're very pleased to be able to satisfy client demand."

Cutler's Rare Books

Boston, MA 02116

Dear Mr. Cutler,

I first came across Cutler's Rare Books at the Antiquarian Book Fair in California last year. After noting the high quality and wide range of your products, I decided to purchase several books from your online store. As I am not interested in having damaged books in my collection, I carefully read the descriptions of their condition before making my purchase. I was assured that the books were undamaged and in their original condition. When I examined the books on their arrival, I discovered that the Norris volume had been sloppily glued and rebound within the last several years.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience to discuss this disappointing situation.

Dear Mr. Baskin,

Let me assure you that I carefully check all of our books myself before their descriptions are entered in our sales catalog. I distinctly remember examining the volume in question when it arrived and again before it was packaged for shipping to you. It is my professional opinion that the book was rebound by its original owner over 70 years ago. Therefore, the book is in its original condition by the standards of our industry.

I understand your disappointment and, to try to make it up to you, I am refunding your payment for the book by Joseph Van Liew, which you may keep with our compliments.

To: Ben Greenidge
From: Nirmala Deokaran
Subject: Request
Date: 13 January

Dear Mr. Greenidge,

I kindly request that management consider entering our company in the CASATO Virtual Business Tournament. The competition, organized by the Caribbean & South American Trade Organization (CASATO), requires participants to develop and implement business strategies that ensure the long-term stability and continuity of an imaginary company.

Participation in this event could be highly beneficial to our company. Though many tournament participants occupy non-decision-making positions in their organization, the contest demands that they apply a broad range of leadership practices. In the process, most become more appreciative of the day-to-day realities and complexities of managing an actual company. Moreover, they tend to apply the skills acquired or refined during the competition–such as collaboration, analysis, and problem-solving—in actual work situations. Additionally, participation in the event may increase our company's profile, opening up new markets for our products. Roughly six months after last year's tournament, about one-third of the 70 companies that had taken part in that event reported an increase in regional business activities.

Details about the tournament are available at www.casato.org/events/tournament_information.

A Virtual Breakthrough for Omicron

9 July–The CASATO Virtual Tournament pits teams from companies based in the Caribbean and South America against one another to determine which one can run the most successful virtual business. While teams from various Guyana-based companies have participated in the competition since its inception, none had ever won. Last week, however, the team representing Omicron Air Cargo in this year's event learned it had earned third place in a field consisting of 109 teams, which represented 85 companies. Omicron's winning team was led by Nirmala Deokaran. The team has been honored with the CASATO Virtual Business Award.
