BAKERSVILLE (August 13)—As confirmed by today’s vote, the city’s building code is getting a shake-up. Among the changes to go into effect on November 3 are stricter fire safety standards for both commercial and residential buildings, enhanced insulation requirements, and, most notably, a requirement that 25 percent of newly constructed residential homes be equipped with solar panels.

The solar initiative has been met with broad support among voters, lawmakers, and home builders. The new rule will increase the total amount of green energy produced and reduce dependency on fossil fuels. Supporters also say that increasing demand for solar panels and hardware will drive prices down, so that this technology will be increasingly affordable. Finally, though the building phase will be more costly than usual, homeowners will save on electricity bills in the long term.

The state will open a phone hotline to answer questions from builders, property owners, contractors, and other affected parties beginning on October 15 and continuing through the end of the year.

151. When does the new code become effective?
152. According to the article, what will become more expensive?

Skylight Gardens

Your Neighborhood Garden Center

Plant Care Tips

Effective plant care starts with choosing the right pot for your houseplant. Make sure that there are holes in the bottom of the pot to let water flow out.

Next, purchase soil from your local garden center. Store-bought potting soil typically contains fertilizer to help indoor plants grow. Using dirt from your own outdoor garden is risky. This dirt can be filled with insects, disease, and weeds, all of which can be harmful to indoor plants.

After potting, pour water on the soil and flowers of your plant. Always check the soil before watering. If the soil is still moist, there is no need for more water.

To maintain a healthy plant, pinch or cut off parts of the plant that have turned brown or withered. Doing so helps to facilitate new growth. Each spring, repot your plant in a larger pot to allow room for the root system to grow.

GABORONE (6 May)]—Local resident Sophie Shagwa has met a goal many application developers relish. —[1]—. Her app, Dream Sweet, which she created as a participant in the Next Generation Apps programme, has been downloaded more than 10,000 times.

Simply put, this app helps users attain their dreams and ambitions,” Ms. Shagwa said. “The app does this by providing a series of questions to help users identify their goals and break them down into achievable parts.”

Recently, she added a much-requested calendar feature. —[2]—. Daily reminders and encouraging text messages are sent around the times when certain parts of the goals should be accomplished.

Additionally, Ms. Shagwa designs calendars, notebooks, and posters with inspirational phrases that can be purchased through the app. —[3]—. “They’re lovely to look at and provide visual reminders that your goals are important and that you have the ability to achieve them,” she said.

The app is free, but additional features, such as personalized coaching and progress tracking, cost extra. Ms. Shagwa uses some of her profits from the Dream Sweet app to sponsor new app developers who want to join the Next Generation Apps programme. —[4]—.

Subject: 301 N. Powell
Attachment: Photos

Elvin,

I walked through the property at 301 N. Powell Avenue today. I was able to see the reception area, the offices and the kitchen, but the utility closet in the west hallway was locked. I am sure an inspector will be able to verify that the furnace and electrical circuit board in that space are in good working order should we choose to proceed with a purchase.

The building has all the space we need to accommodate our clients, including a large parking area. However, there are some issues that we will need to address if we move forward: the carpet in the reception area is discolored; some floor tiles in the east hallway are cracked; and there is chipped paint in the conference room. The small water stain on the ceiling of the conference room may indicate a leak in the roof. I have attached photographs of the problem areas.

Given the low price of the property, I think we should consider this location. We could update the space and still come in under budget. Our current lease expires in three months, so we will need to make a decision quickly. Let me know what you think.

Sincerely,

Barry Robledo

Isidora Basque [3:37 P.M.]: Look at the brown leather chairs with wheels. They are so much more stylish than the current chairs.
Akio Nishi [3:38 P.M.]: They are attractive, but they don’t seem sturdy. What do you think of the big green ones with the plush seats?
Kriya Patel [3:39 P.M.]: I am opening it now.
Isidora Basque [3:40 P.M.]: They look comfortable. But space is limited, and we need at least four chairs in the lobby. Those green chairs are really big.
Kriya Patel [3:42 P.M.]: Are you still looking at the Premium Office section?
Akio Nishi [3:43 P.M.]: No, we’re discussing the Budget Office options now.
Kriya Patel [3:44 P.M.]: Oh, good. Those choices are more affordable.
Akio Nishi [3:46 P.M.]: We should probably select a reception desk before the chairs. Do you like the second one, the yellow desk? I do.
Kriya Patel [3:47 P.M.]: I think it would fit nicely in that space. It is the same size as the current desk.
Isidora Basque [3:48 P.M.]: I think it’s perfect. I’ll tell Barbara now that we all like that desk. Let’s touch base about the chairs after we have had the chance to look at all the choices.

AFEC Offers Pathway to Success

By Pauline Weston

BRIDGETOWN (29 October)—From 14 to 16 November, the Association of Female Entrepreneurs of the Caribbean (AFEC) will be hosting its fourth biennial forum at the Center for Labour Force Development in Bridgetown, Barbados. This year’s theme, “From Aspiration to Sensation,” is centered on the essential skills and tools needed to start, run, and grow a successful business. —[1]—. About 350 women will be interacting with some of the region’s most successful women business leaders through a series of presentations. —[2]—.

One presenter will be Serena Telting, owner of Suriname-based children’s clothing manufacturer Serenatee. She welcomes the opportunity to share her experience with conference goers. —[3]—. “Specifically,” she says, “I will be promoting a set of sound practices that I have adopted over my fifteen years in the apparel industry. Those might shield emerging entrepreneurs from the challenges I faced early on in my career. Because I lacked adequate advice when I started my business, I made some mistakes that nearly ruined it.”

Attendees are keen on engaging with their established peers. Madelon Picard, a native of Martinique who plans to open a nursery school on the island, says, “I am eager to learn how my role models dealt with challenges and accomplished their achievements.” —[4]—. Ms. Picard also referenced the assistance she has received from the Martinique Business Society (MBS), of which she is a member. “The MBS is fully funding my participation in the AFEC forum, from hotel accommodation and airfare to meals and local transport.” She is far from the exception. Organisers say they have seen a significant increase in financial support for attendees since the first AFEC forum.

172. Why was the article written?

Dear Grace:

I am writing to nominate a member of our production team, Dwight Clinton, as a candidate for Franklin Appliances’ Employee of the Month. We have been working diligently to complete the design of a more energy-efficient air-conditioning unit by our July 31 deadline, and Mr. Clinton’s participation on the team has made it possible for us to meet our challenging targets.

In his eight years at Franklin Appliances, Mr. Clinton has demonstrated the capacity to grow both professionally and personally. He began as an apprentice and has steadily worked his way up to Testing Engineer. Mr. Clinton has been instrumental in helping us realize the company’s mission of designing high-quality energy-saving refrigerators, ovens, washing machines, and cooling systems. It would be difficult to envision meeting our product deadlines without his contribution to every project he is assigned to.

Thank you for your consideration.

Dear Mr. Raster,

Thank you for updating me on the status of the Belma S1. Our facilities expansion will not be complete until next month, so I will wait until then to place the order.

As you know, we have been loyal customers for several years, having purchased two of the narrowest Almora units three years ago and an additional four last year. I wanted to inquire whether we might be eligible for a discount on bulk orders similar to the one we received for last year’s order. We are planning to buy six of the new units but could be persuaded to purchase more. Please let me know, and thank you again for following up.
