With the exception of authorized heat sources, no items that can cause fires or explosions are allowed in the lab. Our lab activities are confidential, so filming devices are highly restricted in the lab. —[2]—.

It is evident that lab stations are clean and organized at all times to prevent accidents and chemical residues from causing reactions. Before and after lab activities, all chemicals should be put away with lids closed tightly. —[3]—.

4. Emergencies
Accidents can happen anytime during the lab, and thus you must be aware of the use and location of safety equipment. In case of a fire or chemical contamination, a siren will go off, and everyone must leave the lab immediately. —[4]—.

To: All Staff
From: Brendan Rogerson (b.rogerson @ ellisellis.com)
Subject: Training Courses
Date: April 12

Hello all Ellis and Ellis Consulting staff,

As you know, I've been trying to find a way to improve efficiency here in the office and asked you to complete a survey providing your suggestions. -[1]-. For instance, a number of employees have expressed the desire to take more professional development classes so they can add to their skills. And at the same time, I have noticed that we have had to hire graphic designers on a very regular basis. -[2]-. When it comes to very big projects, like Web site design or creating our annual report, this seems appropriate, but in many cases, we are hiring them to do an hour of work that one of our own employees could probably do with a little training. -[3]-.

Consequently, I am considering organizing a short course on basic graphic design skills for any employees who are interested. -[4]-. This would allow us to use in-house skills for smaller design projects in the future. If this sounds like something you would like to participate in, please respond to this e-mail and let me know before April 20.

Best wishes,
Brendon Rogerson
Human Resources Director, Ellis and Ellis Consulting

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.

 

Frank Cameron 2:29 P.M.
But we're scheduled to ship the computers to stores at the beginning of next month. Do you think that it will be possible to meet that target?

 

Liz Cohen 2:31 P.M.
Not a chance given the current situation.

 

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

 

Liz Cohen 2:34 P.M.
They'll be fine as long as we inform them in advance. At this point, we just need to focus on shipping the best possible product to market, even if it is a bit late.

21. Why is production delayed?
22. At 2:31 P.M., what does Ms. Cohen mean when she writes, "Not a chance"?

Tom Estrada 18:42 Good afternoon from Apex Cable TV. How may I help you today?
Alyssa Munro 18:43 Hi. I need help accessing movies using Movies On Demand.
Tom Estrada 18:44 OK. Please give me a moment to open your account details on my computer.
Tom Estrada 18:45 Thank you for waiting. It appears that you are not subscribed to our Movies On Demand service.
Alyssa Munro 18:45 Oh, really? I thought it was part of my subscription.
Tom Estrada 18:46 Well, our records show that you have the standard plan. This doesn't give you full access to our movie channels.
Alyssa Munro 18:47 Will I need to change my plan if I want Movies On Demand?
Tom Estrada 18:47 You can add the service to your present plan. It costs an extra $8.99 a month. Would you like me to add it now?
Alyssa Munro 18:48 Do you need my credit card number? I don't have it with me now.
Tom Estrada 18:49 That's all right. We can add the charges to your bill, beginning next month.

Gail Royce 7:32 P.M. So, are we all ready for the product launch tomorrow? Let me know if there is anything else we need to do. We won't have much time, as the event starts at 11 A.M.
Reena Singh 7:36 P.M. My team and I have the venue nearly ready. We have a few large banners to hang in the morning, but everything else has been set up.
Roger Bryce 7:37 P.M. We have to make some final lighting adjustments in the morning, but the video screens are up and the sound system is operational.
Olga Russovich 7:38 P.M. About 500 guests have confirmed, but a few more may show up. Six members of the press are coming. The caterer has also set up the food table and refreshment counter.
Gail Royce 7:41 P.M. Thanks everyone. It sounds like everything is proceeding as planned. Olga, why are so few members of the press coming?
Olga Russovich 7:43 P.M. There is an important meeting at City Hall at the same time. Many local journalists need to attend that instead.
Gail Royce 7:46 P.M. That's a shame. I think the reserved press seating area will be far too large. Reena, if you need, feel free to use up to half of the press area for further product displays.
Reena Singh 7:48 P.M. That would be great. There are a couple of jewelry displays that seem rather crowded, so I'll move some things there in the morning. We will want to showcase our new products in the best way possible. What time does the venue open?
Roger Bryce 7:49 P.M. I asked the venue manager today, and he can be there earlier than usual, at 7 A.M., to give us access.

Airport Expansion in the Works

FORT REGINALD - The Fort Reginald Ministry of Transportation is currently finalizing plans to expand Mirabel International Airport. According to sources, a minimum of 142 million Euro, more than half coming from overseas investment, is to be earmarked for the project. The Ministry cites the steady increase in air traffic and the deregulation of air transport as the major factors that have led to the elaboration of a project for the expansion and modernization of the current airport.

The main feature of the project will be a major new addition to the terminal, to be designed by the architect Santiago Cervantes. This will expand the total size of the air terminal to cover an area of 25,000 square meters, including five additional gates, and experts estimate it will be capable to handle 2.5 million passengers per year. The groundbreaking ceremony is slated for early this September, and construction is expected to be completed in about 18 months.

45. Where will the largest portion of the funding for the expansion come from?
46. What is NOT part of the proposed plan for the airport?

Re: June 25th Annual General meeting
I know that you will be unable to attend this year's meeting on the 25th, so I am sending you the agenda now. Please take a look at it before the meeting and give me your opinion on the items.

We have decided to resurface the tennis courts and need to choose from three contractors. I will send you their price lists and a voting form later. Everyone at the meeting will have a chance to vote. As you know, we have suffered a lot of broken windows recently. I would appreciate it if you could fax me your ideas on how to deal with this problem. The fourth item on the agenda refers to renting equipment. We will limit rentals to one hour on weekends and two hours during the week. Only members will be able to rent equipment on weekends. This brings us to the next item: all members will be required to show their membership card in order to use the sports center at a discounted price.

Please send me your thoughts as soon as possible, and I will talk to you in person when you get back from your vacation.

To: Max Sullivan
From: Martha Reynolds
Subj: Conference

Max,

I have been working on the arrangements for our upcoming conference. I've looked into the City Convention Center, and I think it is the most convenient location. It is close to public transportation and hotels. The accommodations are also excellent. The rooms are large, and we can reserve up to ten meeting rooms. However, the price is almost 50% more than we agreed we could spend. The other choice is the Mayfield Hotel. Many associations hold their conventions there. It is a nice place, and the price is reasonable. However, it is not close to the subway. Also, it is much smaller than the Convention Center. I think we could only get three meeting rooms. Would that be enough? Please get in touch with me today to let me know what you think. I need to reserve a place soon.

To: Martha Reynolds
From: Max Sullivan
Subj: Re: Conference

Martha,

In regard to selecting a location for the conference, I think the Convention Center is better than the Mayfield Hotel. The hotel is much too small. Remember, we plan to hold at least five sessions at a time. We couldn't do that at the hotel. We expect more people to take part in the convention this year, so it is important to have a space that can accommodate everyone. About the price, I think we can rearrange the budget a bit in order to be able to pay for it. So go ahead and reserve the space at the Convention Center.
