A trio of bands to treat fans at Shamrocks show 

Frontman, Mike Furie, says the musicians in his band "Loud Furie" and fellow Syracuse rock bands "The Fergi Project" and "Little Secret" want to help make things right for their fans who bought tickets to see them open for Brian Michaels last week at the Regional Market Block Party.

That show - and shows scheduled on subsequent Thursday nights by "Asia" and "Loverboy" - have been canceled.

The opening bands were given tickets to sell to their fans, Furie explains. So "Loud Furie", "The Fergi Project" and "Little Secret" have scheduled a show together at 4 p.m. Sunday at Shamrocks, 1459 Taft Road, Syracuse. Admission is free for anybody who holds a ticket to the canceled Michaels show, or $10 for everybody else.

A nice touch: The band will donate the door money to Michaels' favorite charity, the American Diabetes Association. The musicians are calling it the Antidote Show.  

Also, for fans of "Asia", western New York promoter Billy Pilo has his own show planned. "Asia" plays at 7 p.m. on Saturday at the Main Street Armory, 78 Main St. , Rochester. Admission is free to the show as long as you bring a canned or dry food donation for Rochester food banks.

Apex PC Inc.  
12 Garter's Way 
Erving, TX 75782

To Whom It May Concern,  

I am writing today to thank you for an excellent customer service experience. I recently started a new job as the administrative director for a nonprofit agency that, like most organizations and businesses, cannot function without a computer. This morning when I arrived at work, my Apex Dimension 5000 would not boot up properly. After exhausting my own fairly extensive knowledge about how to get a misbehaving computer to work properly, and consulting my agency's tech department in vain, I called Apex PC Technical Support.  

Gary, the tech support professional who answered my call, spent two hours on the phone with me, walking me through processes ranging from diagnostics to rebooting in various command prompt modes. Gary was wonderful to work with. I was delighted to be on the phone with someone whose knowledge, respect, and sense of humor (particularly important, in my opinion, when dealing with potential computer disaters) made this ordeal much less challenging.

Although your automated answering system is frustrating-I got many "I'm sorry, I don't understand" responses although I speak quite clear and articulate English, and I got cut off at one point - I very much appreciate the excellent customer service your human staff members give. As a result of the help I got today, I elected to extend our Gold Service Contract so that if I have such a problem again, I will have access to your staff.

Again, thank you.  
Sincerely,
Mark Matthews

Re: Survey Results

Customer Survey 

In an initiative to determine the effectiveness of TWDB's programs and services, our agency regularly conducts surveys to measure customer satisfaction and rate TWDB's performance in service delivery.

You can make a difference by taking the time to complete a survey online. Results are analyzed, especially the comments section, to identify possible process improvements or areas in the agency which need increased education or marketing efforts. Program areas use the information to review and implement any necessary program/process changes that will benefit customers or save money. Previous survey results have led to significant improvements to TWDB's programs.

The Tennessee Water Development board intends to use this information to improve its products and service delivery and to increase customer education and awareness regarding agency products and services.

Survey Results: 2010 Customer Survey 
The most frequently cited suggestions for improvement included:
- Increasing personal contact with customers
- Increasing interdepartmental and interagency cooperation
- Further improving the agency's websites 
- Improving the scope and accuracy of information provided 
- Increasing funding opportunities.  

Result: In summary, customers rated TWDB highly, with 94. 8% of all respondents giving the agency an excellent (52. 8%) or good (420%) rating. Furthermore, the specific departments evaluated consistently received satisfaction ratings of at least 96%. A detailed report of the results will be posted on the company website in two weeks.

171. What is likely to happen next month at TWDB?

If you're looking to treat someone - or yourself - with natural and organic body care products, look no farther than Ranch Bernard.

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.  

Everything in the store is natural, with no plastics, dyes or artificial ingredients - ideal for those with allergies or those inclined to use chemical-free products. In addition, the store also features post- and prenatal products, including naturally made children's toys.  

"It's for anybody who's looking for natural and organic products, " said Bianca Smith, a Ranch Bernard resident and Mt. Bernardo High School alumnus who opened the store last December. "A lot of people are leaning toward good quality natural and organic products. "

Nearly all products are from small businesses across California, Ms. Smith added. There's an organic line of lotions, body oils and scrubs from the Napa Valley company VN Organics. In addition to personal care products, the store features products for babies and their mothers, in line with Ms. Smith's business Pregnatique, a baby health and wellness boutique.

Virgo America Names new VP of Marketing 

Virgo America has named Portia Gales as its new vice president of marketing. In her new role, Gales will be in charge of shaping the Virgo America brand as it launches into new markets nationwide.

Subject: faculty Institute 

Dear Professor Risi,

You are cordially invited to attend this year's Faculty Institute, to be held on Thursday, May 18 at the University College facilities on the University of Maryland at Auburn campus. Last year's Faculty Institute opened by considering a number of quality "elements" for teaching with technology. We broadly surveyed examples of how faculty, educational services, and technology support staff are addressing each of these standards, in addition to methods of surveying students to receive feedback. This year we will add to these elements to expand the scope of our faculty members.

University College will provide travel support for faculty attending the 2011 Faculty Institute as part of our commitment to assure quality distance education. If you will be traveling from UMPI, UMFK, or UMM, this includes hotel accommodation for the evening of May 17 in addition to the mileage reimbursement provided for faculty from all UMS campuses. As always, we encourage carpooling. Please RSVP along with any guests you plan to bring by April 2.

I hope you will be able to join us!
Terry

Hello Aaron:

I hope things are good with you and my former boss. I am now a human resources recruiter at Intel Learning. My work at Intel Learning is interesting. The company culture is a lot like the culture at Academia Scholastic.  

I noticed your ad for a sales manager at classifiedjobs. com. We have a young intern here named Brie Claudia who will be completing her internship with us at the end of next month. I would love to be able to hire her full time, but Intel Learning currently has no openings due to budget cuts. Ms. Claudia has taken on increasing responsibilities since hare arrival at Intel Learning, and she has become a reliable and trustworthy manager. I'd really like to see her find work at a company that utilizes her diverse skills.  

I truly believe Ms. Claudia meets all the qualifications for the position you advertised. Let me know if you are interested in interviewing her and I will have her forward her resume.  

Best regards,
Ashley Park
