The Burlington Hotel will reopen in mid-December following the completion of a two-year renovation project making it one of the most elegant places to stay in the area.

Improvements to the 60-year-old hotel include the addition of a health club and a new restaurant serving French cuisine. The number of guest rooms has been reduced to 260 from 280 in order to enlarge smaller rooms and add second bathroom to some suites.

In addition to the new construction, restorations have been made to the hotel's grand ballroom, its rooftop garden overlooking Green Park, and the hand-painted murals in the lobby.

Samuels Ltd. announced on Monday that it will spend $1 billion to build nylon production and processing facilities in Singapore to serve the Asia Pacific region. Construction of the 45, 000-square-meter plant will take two years. When the factory is complete, it will employ over 500 workers and have an estimated annual production of 60, 000 tons of nylon and nylon components. According to company spokesperson Michael Tan, the plant will be equipped with the same advanced technology used in Samuels plants in India and Canada, enabling the company to price its nylon competitively. The nylon products will be sold to companies throughout the region for use in various industrial textile applications.

The Asia Pacific market for nylon has remained strong over the last decade, with the majority of purchases coming from the automobile manufacturers. Samuels is hoping that the efficient production from the new factory will position it to become a leader in the market. It will face stiff competition from Haring Corporation, the current leader, and from several other large chemical companies that ship nylon products into the area from Europe and Africa.

The new Washware ultrasonic home dishwasher developed by the Dowell Company is a great way to clean dishes and benefit the environment. The Washware removes debris from dishes using ultrasonic waves in the same way that can use to clean jewelry. The dishwasher contains a 100-liter tank with two metal converters that release high-frequency sound waves under water. The waves generate high-temperature, high-pressure bubbles that clean dishes using very little detergent. These micro-scrubbing bubbles can reach into small cracks and crevices that sponges or brushes cannot reach.

A conventional machine consumes 200 to 300 liters of fresh water per use. The Washwave filters the water in its tank for reuse after each cycle. The water in its tank only needs to be changed every other week. This can save the average household 250, 000 to 500, 000 liters of water annually. The shorter run of time of the machine also saves on electricity. The Washwave cleaning cycle lasts only five minutes where a conventional machine usually takes twenty minutes or longer.

The Washwave unit was introduced in Japan in September, and Dowell is planning to introduce it around the world over the next several years. Dowell is also able to customize dishwashers to meet the needs of commercial clients such as those in the healthcare and hospitality industries. For more information, visit www. dowell. com to see demonstration videos, order a brochure, or find a local retailer.

172. What is the information mainly about?
173. According to the information, what is an advantage of the Washwave?
174. How often should the water in the Washwave replaced?

Simple basic model that does its job
By Pamela Cal

I got my Selona a few months ago, and initially, I experienced no problems. Unfortunately, at some point the speakers started making cracking noises whenever the alarm goes off. I guess that's what you'd expect, considering the price. It's reliable and easy to set, so I have no major reasons to complain.

Good for home, not for travel
By Alan Fletcher

I travel a lot, and I need a small handy alarm clock for my frequent hotel stays, I was in for a surprise when I ordered this model online. What happened was the photograph did not reflect its actual size, which makes it unfit for travel. But it's a great home alarm clock.

Y-Tech 2700
Rating 10/10
You'll never need another alarm clock!
By Josh56

It's definitely as heavy-duty as it's described in the advertisement. I had dropped it in deep snow in my backyard and found it days later. It still worked as if nothing had happened. The only downside is its steep price.

Cooper & Steinborn, Inc.
5000 Birch Road, Suite 150
New York, NY

Dear Mr. Bradley,

I am writing to apply for the position of graphic designer, advertised in the August 5 edition of Empire Business Magazine. For the last year I have been a graphic designer for a local accounting firm, where I am responsible for designing the company's Web site and for producing online and paper advertisements. Before that I was employed for three years as a staff photographer at one of the region's top newspapers, Coastal News. I believe that my experience with visual media and communications makes me well suited for the advertised job developing logos and drawings targeted at specific consumer groups.

I have enclosed a copy of my résumé, which includes links to Web sites that display advertisements I have designed. I would be happy to provide you with a list of references as well. It has long been my wish to work in the advertising industry, so I hope you will give my application every consideration.

Dear Ms. Mori,

Thank you for your interest in working for our company. The selection committee read your application with great interest, and we were very impressed with the look and artistry of your company's Web site. Unfortunately, we are looking for someone with at least three year's experience in graphic design, and so we cannot consider you for the job you applied for. However, we were particularly interested in the work that you had done previously with Coastal News, and we think you might be an excellent fit for a job in our media department that we expect will start within the next six months. If you have any examples of your work from your time from that earlier period, please mail them to me sometime next week and I will contact you to discuss a possible interview at our offices.

Agri-Amb Fair

Agri-Amb Fair is an agricultural trade show held every year for more than twenty years in Villars. Hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of visitors come to Villars to see the latest agricultural technology, products, and services. Large indoor spaces inside four pavilions will again be open to exhibitors and visitors this year, with the fair running from August 20 through August 23.

While the fair is not among the largest agricultural fairs in the area, it has the reputation of being a favorite among small and medium-sized business looking to showcase their products at reasonable expense. For many companies, being present here is a relatively modest investment with high returns in the form of contracts for future orders.

Participation fees are competitive, considering the infrastructure provided at the venue. Forklift operators are available on site to carry the exhibitors' products around the pavilions at no charge. Heavy equipment that does not fit onto a forklift can, for a small fee, be transported by a crane. Each exhibitor is guaranteed free power and water to each booth inside every pavilion.

Also, this year, the organizers have introduced a loyalty discount for exhibitors who have showcased their products and services in the past. Returning exhibitors attending Agri-Amb Fair will pay 15 percent less for their exposition space.

To: All employees
Date: Wednesday, December 17

Subject: Work Leave Policy

Starting with this year, employees who have been at the company for at least one year will be able to convert any leave days unused at the end of the year into a one-time cash payment. Previously, any unused leave was automatically applied to the next year. If you wish to have your leave days rolled over as before, you need to do nothing. If you wish to receive a cash payment, you will have to fill out a Leave Conversion form.

Payments for unused leave days will be determined based on your salary. For example, if you have 5 days of unused leave at the end of the year, you will receive 2 percent of your annual salary, if you have 10 days of unused leave at the end of the year, you will receive 4 percent of your annual salary, and so on. Employees may convert a maximum of 15 days of unused leave, any days exceeding that amount will be rolled over to the next year as before. Please note that the policy allowing a maximum of 30 accumulated leave days is still in place.

Only full-time, salaried employees are eligible to convert unused leave days. To apply for the benefit, please pick up a form from the benefits office. Completed forms must be received no later than Friday, January 5. Payment will be processed during the week of January 22. If you have any questions about the policy, please e-mail or call me at ext. 578.

HI Carmen,

I would like to take advantage of the new leave policy and convert my unused leave. I ended the year with 10 leave days for which I would like to receive a cash payment rather than keeping the time for this year. However, I'm working on a client site in Buffalo all week, and so I'm unable to come into the office before the end of the week. Could you please tax me the necessary materials at 716-555-0191 sometime today? I will fill them out as required and return them to you by the deadline at the end of the week. Thank you for your help.

Thank you,
