Gordon Institute Publishes Study on Americans' Eating and Exercise Habits

In its last survey conducted a decade ago, the Gordon Institute found that many Americans were not as active as they should be and often ate excessively. Now, the Atlanta-based nonprofit organization has released the comprehensive results of a new survey on the same topic.

According to the survey, 45 percent of Americans exercise once a week for 30 minutes a day or more. An additional 25 percent exercise three times a week for 30 minutes a day or more, and a further 10 percent exercise at least 30 minutes every day of the week. -[1]-.

Of the Americans who do exercise, 65 percent say they jog slowly, 25 percent say they lift weights, and the remaining 10 percent say they walk long distances or perform other activities. -[2]-. About 40 percent of this group say they don't make any effort to regulate their food intake, while about 60 percent say they strive to eat healthily at least some of the time. -[3]-.

These results make for an interesting comparison to a similar survey the Gordon Institute published 20 years ago. In that survey, only 23 percent of Americans said they exercised at least once a week. Furthermore, the percentage of those monitoring their food intake and endeavoring to make smart food choices has risen 11 percent. -[4]-.

40. What can be inferred about the Gordon Institute?
41. What type of exercise did most survey participants prefer?
42. What does the most recent survey indicate about Americans?
43. In which of the positions marked [1], [2], [3], and [4] does the following sentence best belong? "The rest of them say they do not work out at all."

To: All members of Reinholdt Street bridge team
From: Michael Smith, manager, information services dept.
Re: Video Conference - Friday, August 21st at 6:45 a.m.

You are advised that there will be a video conference with head office this morning Friday. Everyone who has been involved in the planning and implementation of that project is expected to attend. The purpose of the meeting is to update Mr. Bill Sanderson, who is replacing Jim Watson in overseeing all government contracts, about the progress that has been made and what still needs to be done. This project is presently behind schedule, and Mr. Sanderson would like to get some idea of how far back the deadline needs to be pushed before he calls the city. Please send Mr. Sanderson a brief summary of your role in the project and any other information that you think might be pertinent so that he can have a chance to prepare for the meeting. Mr. Sanderson will also be asking you for your ideas about streamlining our work-flow, so please give that some thought and offer your suggestions.
The conference is scheduled to start at head office at 9:00 a.m. EST, and the time difference means that we will have to start at 6:45 a.m. Of course, we are aware that this falls outside of your regular work schedule. You will be compensated for your time at the overtime rate. The meeting should last about 2 hours, so you will be able to start your regular workday on time.
This is the first such conference that we have conducted, and if it is successful, we hope to hold all meeting between our San Diego branch and head office via video conference. So, your participation in making it successful is very much appreciated.

Re: Video Conference

Dear Mr. Sanderson,
My name is Aaron Rothschild, and I am the senior engineer on the Reinholdt Street bridge project. I was asked by Michael Smith to e-mail you with some information with regard to the project schedule.
As I'm sure you are aware, the project has fallen behind schedule. We were originally slated to begin construction at the beginning of May, but there were numerous problems. The most significant of these was that we were unable to find a local firm that could handle the kind of blasting that the project required. The bridge called for blasting for the underpass for James Street, and this was very close to a residential area, requiring a very specialized excavation blast. None of the firms in the San Diego area had the necessary expertise. We were able to locate a company in LA that could do it, but this put us two weeks behind schedule.
At the video conference on Friday morning, I think one issue that would be important to address is why this oversight happened. We were under the impression that the blasting company that we usually hire would be able to do the job, but this is because we were not given a clear idea of the exact nature of the site until it was too late. I think this was a simple case of communication breakdown, but it would be useful to discuss it to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Yours truly,
Aaron Rothschild

To: Margaret Atkins
From: Lawrence Devine
Subject: Meeting
Date: October 6

Dear Ms. Atkins,

I just wanted to confirm the details that were discussed at the marketing meeting you called this morning. Following your instructions, additional funds for market research will be allocated to the only department whose sales performance in September declined. Also, it was agreed that we should continue promoting the categories that showed an increase in sales. As for watches and jewelry, you want us to conduct surveys to learn what specific items customers want most. Since profit margins for those items are high, you indicated that the company may wish to enlarge the selection in that department next year. Please let me know if this covers everything you requested or spoke about at the meeting so that I don't overlook anything. Once I hear from you, I will discuss this with the rest of the marketing staff. We can present a tentative plan when we meet with you again next week.

Thanks,

Lawrence Devine

Marketing associate
