Have you heard when production on the new laptop will begin?

 

Liz Cohen 2:24 P.M.
I called Stan Lowell, and he said he can't get things started at the factory for at least another four weeks.

 

Frank Cameron 2:26 P.M.
That's not good news. What’s causing the delay?

 

Liz Cohen 2:28 P.M.
He says the plant can't proceed until the engineering department finishes testing the product. It's taking them longer than anticipated.

Liz Cohen 2:31 P.M.

Frank Cameron 2:33 P.M.
I see. How do you think the sales representatives will take the news?

PORTABLE DATA STORAGE DEVICES

Please be advised that, effective immediately, personal data storage devices, such as key drives and portable hard drives, will not be allowed on company premises. Because they pose too much of a security risk, personnel are asked to refrain from bringing such devices to the office. Employees who require a means of mass storage for bringing work home with them are asked to fill out a requisition form and submit it to their manager for approval. Those with appropriate security clearance will be issued a special company portable hard drive. This will be checked by security and scanned for sensitive data or potential security risks (viruses or other malicious software) upon entering and leaving the building. Your cooperation in this important new procedure is very much appreciated.

The Federal Department of Labor has announced that the unemployment rate has decreased this year by 2%. This decrease has surprised experts who predicted a 3%-5% increase. In addition to the decrease, the federal government has released research that shows the dollar value has improved compared to its international exchange rate at this time last year. This improvement has also come as a surprise to analysts who predicted the dollar would remain stable. The Federal Department of Labor attributes these improvements to a smaller workforce.

Economic analysts have gone on record to say that these changes should prove beneficial for the country's general fiscal health over the course of the next year, as competition should increase and consumership will improve. The increase in value of the dollar is usually attributed to higher salaries throughout the workforce. Investors have also responded positively to this information as the stock market has experienced consistent growth over the past two quarters.

22. What change has the government reported?
23. What is predicted to happen over the next year?

July 7 – The steamboat Suncoast is returning to the public on August 20. The Suncoast is a historical symbol of the Industrial Revolution in the U.S. as one of the first steam engine boats to travel along the Mississippi River. The Suncoast has traveled up and down the river while hauling agricultural exports for almost a decade. —[1]—.

After the invention of a high-pressure steam engine, the Suncoast was no longer needed. The Pollard Steamboat Company kept the Suncoast’s original shape to maintain its historical value. To convey its historical significance to the community, it was donated to the New Orleans Engines Museum (NOEM) and was displayed at the South Shore Harbor beside the museum. —[2]—.

In order to show off the archaic beauty of the Suncoast to the world, NOEM has decided to use the steamboat itself to exhibit the history and evolution of waterway transportation on the Mississippi River during the Industrial Revolution. —[3]—. While preserving most of its inner structure, NOEM has built an indoor café, a restaurant, souvenir shops, and other facilities within the steamboat for visitors to enjoy. —[4]—.

An admission ticket for NOEM includes a free drink at the Suncoast Café. For ticket pricing and purchase, visit www.noem.com/suncoast.

30. What is the purpose of the article?
31. What is mentioned as a change that was made to the Suncoast?
32. What is NOT true about NOEM?
33. In which of the positions marked [1], [2], [3], and [4] does the following sentence best belong? “However, it was only for observing the exterior, and visitors were forbidden to enter.”

Tips for shopping through the mail

Every year,thousands of people successfully order goods from mail order catalogs. However, some more unfortunate individuals find that the goods they ordered look nothing like the pictures, arrive damaged, or don't arrive at all. Here are some tips to help protect yourself when you shop through the mail.

. Before placing your first order, ask around. Have your friends or family used this catalog before? How was their experience? Were they satisfied with the goods and service? Would they use the company again?

. Read all available information, including the return policy. Look for companies that offer a no-questions asked return policy. Check whether you will have to pay postage if you need to return goods.

. Always include shipping costs and sales tax in the final price when comparing costs. In some cases, the shipping costs can really add up. Make sure you know exactly what you are paying for.

. How long will you have to wait for your order. If you need something in a hurry, shopping by mail might not be the best option.

. Keep records of your orders, including the catalog name, address, telephone number, and the date that you placed the order. Of course, you should also keep track of items ordered, operator name, and expected date of delivery.

. If you encounter any problems with a mail-order company, contact a consumer advocacy group. You can easily find telephone numbers for such groups in the telephone directory or on the Internet.

34. What should be included in the final price?
35. What should a buyer keep record of?
36. When could it be a bad idea to buy something through the mail?
37. Who should you contact if you have problems?

Located in the Bernardo Winery village shops, Natures Perfect Scents offers products that relax you while awakening the senses with aromatherapy-based lotions, soaps, oils, bath products and more.

To Whom It May Concern,

Yesterday, my son and I visited the Bernardo Mall and had a meal at Chips and Tacos, the restaurant located next to the mall. Upon leaving the mall, I was charged a fee of $5.73 for parking. I had not expected this as I think I had been informed that those who spend more than $20 will be exempt from paying the parking fee. Even though I did not buy anything at the mall, I spent far more than $30 at the restaurant. I was too busy to explain everything to the employee at Gate #5 at the time, but I hope I can be refunded for this error.

Thank you,

Hello, I just wanted to let everyone know that the Tollins company picnic has been cancelled because there is a chance of rain on the day we originally chose. As you know, we wanted to have the picnic outdoors so that employees could participate in a variety of team-building exercises.
We asked the Humble Country Club if we could hold the lunch in their Club House instead, but unfortunately they told us that Plymouth Autos will be holding a special banquet to celebrate their 25th anniversary there.
Attached to this email is an Employee Preference Form. I am asking all employees to list their preferred date for the rescheduled company picnic. I sincerely hope that we can accommodate everyone's schedule. Please fill out the form and email it to me by Thursday, March 2st, at 3p.m.
