Attention All Employees!

The executives at Juniper Insurance have decided to purchase mobile phones for all employees. They are hoping that the new phones will improve communication between members of different departments. The company will be purchasing forty-seven TM-161 cell phones from Globalphone Inc. at the end of July. You will receive your new phone during the first week of August. Each employee will be given 200 minutes free each month. If you use more than your monthly limit, you will be charged an additional $25 each month. We understand that this is a new policy that may potentially be problematic, so we welcome any comments or suggestions you may have. To monitor the new phone system's effectiveness, we will be asking employees to fill out a survey. The date for this survey has not been chosen yet. However, it will most likely take place during the third week of August. Also, employees with other suggestions about how to help employees communicate better should fill out an Employee Comments Form, which can be obtained from Betty Gill in the Human Resources Department.

16. What does the company plan to do in July?
17. How will the company evaluate the effectiveness of the strategy?

Gardenville to Resurrect Jefferson Cinema

Gardenville City Council members voted on Thursday to proceed with the restructuring and renovation of the old Jefferson Cinema on Jorgensen Street. The structure, built in the late 1920s, has sat vacant since it shut down in the 1980s. The opening of two multiplex theater complexes in Gardenville drove the one-screen cinema out of business.

Upon recommendation of the Gardenville Arts Council (GAC) and the Gardenville History Society, the city will invest a sum of $2.3 million in the building. The updated facility will be used as a venue for live theatrical performances and will be renamed The Jefferson Playhouse. Local theater group Flora-Lane Community Players will use the building for all its rehearsals and shows. Likewise, the venue will also be a space for visiting acts, performers, and theatrical groups. GAC President Marvin Lee said in a telephone interview "we are thrilled that the council approved the project unanimously. —[1]—. First, it will help preserve our local heritage and history, and it will also provide our community’s theater club with a more appropriate home". —[2]—. Flora-Lane Community Players currently practices and holds performances at the Carter Neighborhood Youth Center’s auditorium. —[3]—. However, with a seating capacity of only 100 audience members, the group’s growingly popular shows require a larger venue. —[4]—.

The project is scheduled to begin on June 8 and will last for approximately four months.

19. Why did council members decide to go ahead with the project?
20. The word “drove” is closest in meaning to

Bluecoats Look to a Brighter Future

Last night the management of the Kansas City Bluecoats finally made the long-expected announcement that the team will be moving into a new stadium in a suburb just within the city limits of Kansas City. -[1]-.

The Bluecoats were one of the top teams in American football two decades ago, winning the national championship once and making it to the final game on another occasion. -[2]-. But recent years have been more difficult, with disappointing placements in the league and a dwindling fan base that has been attracted to other more successful sports teams in the region.

Moving will allow for cheaper ticket prices, more parking spaces, and easier access from other areas. -[3]-. As for the team, it will get to train using state-of-the-art facilities. Work will begin on the currently unnamed new stadium this month and is expected to be finished within two years.

Kansas City mayor Lester Hickman celebrated the team's move, saying, "This is great news for the team, and we look forward to helping the Bluecoats rise back up to their previous levels of success." -[4]-.

23. What is the article mainly about?
24. What is mentioned about the Kansas City Bluecoats?
25. What is true about the new stadium?

To: Customer Service
From: Doris Hogue
Subject: Order#10009283
Date: October 10

To Whom It May Concern,

I tried calling the Toptracks 101 customer service directly but could not reach any of the workers. I purchased some albums on your Web site not long ago. —[1]—. After I paid for the selected items, I realized that I had accidently ordered the Rock Station’s Deluxe album, which I did not mean to purchase as I had already done so last month. For some reason, it still remained in my shopping cart and got checked out along with my new list of items, so I accidently paid for it. —[2]—.

On the Web site, the notice says that I should contact customer service and that a refund will be available within 24 hours of purchase. —[3]—. If by any chance, the refund of a single item is not available, could you just cancel my whole order? The Rock Station’s Deluxe album is not cheap and I certainly don’t need two of them. —[4]—. Please get back to me with the available options.

Thank you.

Reality television shows are becoming increasingly poplar around the United States. One recent show, Wannabe, depicts a group of five men and five women who live in the same house for several months without contact with the rest of the world. Each week the participants take singing lessons and perform their songs for the audience and the judges. Also, every weekend one participant must leave the program, as they are voted off the show either because of lack of singing talent or because the other participants do not like living with them. The television audience participates in the voting process, and an average of two million votes per week are entered by viewers, either by phone or Internet. The final two remaining "Wannabes" earn a recording contract with a famous company.

30. What kind of event does this reality show try to depict?
31. How many people participate in this TV show?

Subject: Your order

Ms. Camden,

This is about the two Lucia Simonetti designer handbags you ordered from our Web site on November 8. Unfortunately, one of the handbags, Model #452, is currently unavailable. It has been a popular item, and I'm sorry to say that we've just run out of stock. -[1]-. We placed an order with our supplier in Italy around a week and a half ago. -[2]-. The earliest we can expect the new items to arrive would be two weeks from today.

We would like to know if you still wish to proceed with your order. -[3]-. If so, we will send the available item, Model #450, by overnight shipping at no extra cost. Or you can wait for Model #452 to arrive, and we will ship everything together. -[4]-. Kindly send us a reply e-mail to inform us of your decision. I will be sure to keep you posted on any new developments as they occur. We apologize once more for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,
Christina Garcia

Hello everyone,

I first would like to thank and congratulate you all on your hard work this season. The collection was a great critical success. Because we've been so busy, we haven't had time to sit down together and discuss some different ideas for next season

Antonio will be developing a new line of accessories for our company, and I'm sure he will become a valuable member of our team.

Going International: A Marketing Strategies Conference.

An information program sponsored by the National Student Marketers Association 

Are you ready to go global?

Recent research has shown that over half of medium-sized firms are looking to expand their business into the overseas market within the next five years. Is your business one of the majority? You may think you have all the tools necessary to go global, or that your product can sell itself-no matter what part of the world it's in. It has been proven, time and time again that our successful strategies for domestic marketing are, all too often, a tremendous failure when used abroad. That's the reason so many companies have failed, and that is the reason you should know better than to follow in their footsteps. The National Student Marketers Association is sponsoring a must-see event for any business owner planning to expand their product lines internationally.

The two-day conference will enlighten you and your employees on the following topics:

-Spotting your weaknesses ... before your customers do!

-Understanding culture - and using it to your advantage.

-Legal and taxation issues. Don't let your company suffer!

-Dealing with international customers. How to execute appropriate service plans.

-Developing & implementing a global marketing strategy. 

If you are a small or mid-sized firm owner or CEO, you must attend this conference! Cost is $250 per person. Discounts are available for groups of 3 or more. Total includes six meals and all materials. Visit www.NSMA org to register. Space is limited, so sign up today!

42. Who is the target audience for this announcement?
43. According to the information, what can lead to failure?

Business Kitchens, Inc.
April 19, 20--

Dear Mr. Conner,

I am writing to follow up on our conversation of last Monday. You said you were looking for a new provider for kitchen supplies for your office, and that your particular need at this time was for a large-capacity coffeemaker. I have looked through the coffeemakers we have available, and believe I have found the best one to suit our needs. The primary advantage of the 300X Office Coffeemaker is that it reduces mess. The coffeemaker is filled with water daily. Then, to make a cup of coffee, the user simple inserts a premeasured package of coffee into the machine and presses the "on" button. The coffee is ready in one minute. There are no pots to clean or filters to change. The machine can make tea and other hot drinks as well. The 300X is also the most durable machine on the market.

I am enclosing a description of the machine and price information. We can also deliver refills of coffee and tea to you on a weekly or monthly basis. In addition, we stock other kitchen appliances such as microwave ovens and office-sized refrigerators. Please let me know if you are interested in purchasing such items.

Sincerely,
Laura Baker
Sales Manager

Johnson Research Affiliates
April 26, 20--

Dear Ms. Baker,

Thank you for the information on the 300X Office Coffeemaker. I think it will meet our needs for large-capacity coffeemaker at an affordable price. Our office is large, so I would like to order two at this time. I don't think we will need the regular deliveries of coffee and tea. Our need for these varies so much from week to week that it is better to order them on an as-needed basis. My assistant is good at staying on top of these things, so we don't have to worry about running out. Currently, we don't have a need for ovens or refrigerators although we may in the near future. I will keep you informed. Meanwhile, we will send you a purchase order for the coffeemakers. Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,
Matthew Conner
Office Manager

TO: Customer service
FROM: Amy Baron
SUBJECT: Order inquiry
DATE: September 30

My name is Amy Baron, and I work for Bench Business Training Center in Tacoma. We are looking for a special and practical item to give away to participants who complete our courses. In doing so, we hope to promote our center as well. A colleague at our branch office in Seattle recently purchased one of your bags for mobile devices and recommended it for its design, quality, and reasonable cost.

I am wondering if your company would consider offering us a discount if we placed a large order. Also, our organization's logo is navy blue, so we want the bags made of matching blue material. To improve brand recognition, we want our name and logo noticeably displayed on the front of each bag. If all of these terms are agreeable to you, we would like to place an initial order for 1,000 pieces.

Feel free to call me at 555-3409 to discuss this further, or you can reply to this e-mail.

Not only are these finely crafted bags extremely useful and practical, but the customer service from the manufacturer was excellent.

They also put us in touch with a partner company that did some customized printing on the items. The price of the bags was very reasonable considering the excellent quality.

USER REVIEW: Wheel-Pals Carpooling Application
By Jason Diaz (jdiaz@vastpost.co.au)
★★★★☆

Wheel-Pals recently launched its service in the Auckland area, and having already used the application while living in Brisbane, I was one of the first to sign up. As before, I purchased the basic package because, in the past, it had enough services to help me form carpool groups with other drivers or riders that live nearby. However, I don't think Wheel-Pals has done enough to promote its launch in this area. I sometimes find it difficult to find people to carpool with. In Brisbane, I only drove my car to work once or twice a week, but now I have to do it more often. Also, few people that I know locally are even aware of the application.

Subject: software training

Mary,

As you know, we have decided to replace our old software with a new program that will facilitate our work better. Although the new software is not technically difficult to use, it is significantly different from our old software. The entire staff will need to be trained to use it. Of course, not everyone can attend a training session together, because we need some staff members to be in the office at all times. The trainer suggests that each person attend one training session and one follow-up session. The sessions will last three to four hours each. The trainer can be here once a week. Please develop a training schedule so that everyone can be trained over the next two months. Thank you.

Fred

From: mary@acme.com
Subject: re: software training

Fred,

I have written up a schedule that will facilitate the training process. There will be eight weekly training sessions all together. Since we have four departments, the easiest way is to send one person from each department to each training session during the first month. Of course it will be a different person each week. We can repeat the process during the second month for the follow-up sessions. This way everyone will have a chance to develop his or her skills on the new software. I am attaching a copy of the schedule. Please let me know what you think.
