With winter quickly approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to devote a portion of November's issue to discussing how winter affects our minds and bodies, and how we can cope with the shorter, colder, and darker days.

An article published in the Journal of Medicine revealed that 3 out of every 5 people in the country are affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Common symptoms include lack of energy, increased need for sleep, mood swings, and depression.

This winter is going to be the coldest in ten years. The good news is that a number of scientists and psychologists have developed interesting and effective remedies to help those affected by SAD escape the ailment that leaves them wanting to crawl into bed, bury themselves under the blankets, and hibernate until spring. In this issue, we have included three different articles which discuss SAD and provide helpful solutions for preventing it.

On page 13, in an article entitled "Staying Creative and Productive this Winter," Dr. Leonard O'Reilly, a psychologist who has been studying SAD for the last ten years discusses how high-intensity artificial light, which simulates the longer days of summer, can help people reduce the effects of SAD this winter. Dr. O' Reilly even designed a lamp that you can put beside your bed.

You'll find a second remedy to SAD on page 23, in an article called "Sleeping through SAD." The article features a discussion about SAD with Dr. Lauren Scott, a researcher at Hedrick University in Germany. Finally, on page 34, you'll learn how Dr. Livingston and Dr. Sue Tao of the National Psychiatric Institute discovered that cognitive behavioral therapy, a form of psychological therapy, can stimulate brain activity and increase energy levels.

40. What will November's issue be mainly about?
41. What is NOT a common symptom of SAD?
42. The word "escape" in paragraph 3, is closest in meaning to
43. What can be inferred about Dr. O'Reilly from the article?
44. Which of the following is a remedy for SAD mentioned in the article?

To: swhitfield@tinycom.com, Bhejones@gonet.com, hdavis@renet.co
From: jpotter@hnet.com
Subject: August Calendar
Date: July 19

I have been asked to inform you of some changes to the summer events calendar. I would like to ask you to add these changes to the calendar posted in your offices, and to be sure to announce them at your monthly sales meeting at the end of this month. I have attached a copy of the original calendar, but I am afraid you will have to mark the changes for yourselves.

The first change is to the date of visit from the Japan-America Society. This has been postponed for a week and will happen the following Wednesday instead. Next, the annual softball tournament was marked incorrectly as Thursday and Friday, the 25th and 26th. It will be held, as always, on the fourth Friday and Saturday of August. In other words, the 26th and 27th. Finally, the meeting on August 31st is canceled.
Thanks for noting the changes.

Jason Potter
