Around Town

Bright Sky Café owner Marta Padilla has signed a lease for a second restaurant at 422 Oak Street. The building, adjacent to Cade Theater, formerly housed a branch of Haldon Bank. Ms. Padilla's new venture, to be called Tierra Bistro, will start service on June 5. At first, however, the bistro will be open only during the evening hours. The idea is to attract a following, especially among theatergoers, before adding a lunch service. Ms. Padilla's successful original eatery, Bright Sky Café, is situated on Second Street, close to the Wynn Farmers' Market bus stop. Executive Chef Armando Lucca will oversee both locations.

Long Ride Even Longer?

By Selma Gonzalez

On Monday, Chien Motors, the manufacturer now producing Long Ride motorcycles, announced a delay in the introduction of the new Flash JX model. Industry competitors responded with surprise at the news. —[1]—. And Long Ride motorcycle fans went online en masse to express frustration with Chien Motors for canceling March's much-anticipated roll-out.

It seems the decision to equip the Flash JX with a hybrid system, which uses both gasoline and electric power, is to blame. Chien Motors admits that the current prototype was rejected because of its excessive size and weight. This design of the power system would have required a larger motorcycle body than planned. They also had concerns over its lack of power output. —[2]—.

In addition to the design challenges, the Long Ride factory, having been equipped to produce previous models, is not ready for production of the Flash JX hybrid. —[3]—. New equipment will need to be purchased, and the assembly floor will need to be reconfigured.

Last year, Chien Motors was widely praised by motorcycle enthusiasts after it stepped in to save Long Ride from going out of business. What a difference twelve months has made. —[4]—.

161. What is indicated about Chien Motors?
162. What is NOT mentioned as a problem with the power system?
163. Why will the factory be renovated?
164. In which of the positions marked [1], [2], [3], and [4] does the following sentence best belong? "Now they will need to win back the goodwill of these potential customers."

Đoạn văn:

David Fowles [4:26 P.M.] Ms. Kang, tomorrow's forecast is calling for storms, so the roof work on your hotel's new wing will have to be put on hold.

 

Sue Kang [4:27 P.M.] Will that mean no work the whole day?

 

David Fowles [4:27 P.M.] Not at all. My workers can help Tony Ulman's crew repair the support beams inside the old building.

 

Sue Kang [4:28 P.M.] How long will it take to repair those?

 

David Fowles [4:28 P.M.] Let me check.

 

David Fowles [4:29 P.M.] Tony, how close are you to finishing your project?

 

Tony Ulman [4:31 P.M.] Things were looking OK until this morning when the structural engineer came by with some updates. We'll be working late the next few days.

 

David Fowles [4:32 P.M.] How would you feel about my crew helping you out tomorrow?

 

Tony Ulman [4:33 P.M.] Great! Then we could possibly finish in one day.

 

Sue Kang [4:35 P.M.] So your workers will only need access to the old building?

 

David Fowles [4:36 P.M.] For tomorrow, yes. Would it be OK for them to leave their cars in front of the old building?

 

Sue Kang [4:38 P.M.] Sure. There should be enough spaces next to the main entrance. And could you remind them not to take vehicles onto the grass?

165. What does Mr. Fowles suggest will interrupt work tomorrow?
166. At 4:31 P.M., what does Mr. Ulman most likely mean when he writes, "We'll be working late the next few days"?

Welcome to Ticket Stack

REVIEWS | HOME | EVENTS | PLACE ORDER

★★★★★ I'm so thankful I found Ticket Stack!

I work for an independent local theater, Dewley Theater. We recently ordered 2,500 tickets from Ticket Stack. We decided against securing the tickets with the invisible verification stamp but did download the free software so that we would have more flexibility with the design and could include the theater's logo. The tickets came out great! A number of patrons complimented us on the new design, and we were especially pleased with the prompt delivery! By contrast, last year we ordered tickets from a small company based here in Albany and were disappointed with the service. That order took four weeks to arrive. This year, even though Ticket Stack is based on the opposite side of the country, we received our tickets within just five business days!

Revised Business Plan: Sole Assortment

Section 1. Purpose

Raleigh Street has become a vibrant district of eateries, shops, and entertainment venues. My business, Sole Assortment, will fill a very significant gap among the existing apparel shops and department stores. Sole Assortment will focus on women's shoes and accessories. We are committed to offering high-quality footwear at affordable prices in a relaxing, customer-centered environment.

Section 2. Target Market
Sole Assortment will serve women who work in the surrounding area. Because many office buildings are within walking distance, customers from the target market are likely to frequent the store during mid-day breaks and at the end of the business day. Weekend customers are those who come to the area for shopping, dining, and entertainment.

Section 3. Estimated Timeline
The grand opening is scheduled for May 10. The anticipated deadlines for each stage of the timeline are:
February 25: Sign lease and obtain business permit
March 31: Renovate space and install displays
April 30: Post job announcements, complete interviews, and hire staff
May 7: Load inventory and prepare for opening

Section 4. Financial Information

From: David Louw (dlouw@marketstreetlegal.co.za)
To: Mpho Mashigo (mmashigo@marketstreetlegal.co.za)
Date: 12 May
Subject: Office furnishing update

Hello, Mpho,

I've completed some research and would like to suggest that we go with Central Craft Office Furnishings for the desks and other pieces for our office renovation. Though we've never purchased from them before, they provided references that gave glowing recommendations.

I think we should choose a larger desk type for our main work area (twelve desks), with matching filing cabinets and bookshelves. For the support staff and interns who work upstairs, I suggest a simpler desk style.

If you approve these suggestions, I'm hoping to place the order quickly so that the items would be delivered while most of our staff are away at the conference in Bloemfontein. Unfortunately, our work areas will appear quite messy as we clear out the old furniture and await the arrival of the new items.

Please let me know what you think of the plan I have outlined above.

From: Jethro Li (jli@plumroom.com)

Date: Monday, September 19
Subject: Menu tasting

Hi Bettina,

It's hard to believe Mr. Bonneau will be here in just four weeks! Since his review will be published in the city newspaper, let's be sure that our selections reflect the very best of The Plum Room. To get input on the menu we'll be serving him, I've decided we should hold a special menu-tasting event on Saturday of next week.

I have a few suggestions for what we could serve at the menu tasting. How about preparing a hearty meatless entrée that can really hold its own? That way we can highlight our vegetarian-friendly offerings. Perhaps our steamed shellfish dish would be a good option too. I do insist, however, on offering the new specialty pizzas we're planning to introduce on our regular menu. That is, of course, assuming construction on the brick oven is completed by then. Also, I think we could serve at least one of our fruit desserts—they are always popular. But do know that I have full confidence in you, as Head Chef, to finalize the menu selections.

Lastly, I'd like to offer our menu-tasting patrons a chance to tour the kitchen while they are here. Let me know how you feel about this and how best to arrange it.

Thanks,

Jethro Li

Tasting Comment Card

Name: Elianne Aude

Please comment on your tasting experience at The Plum Room.

I was pleasantly surprised by the gentle sweetness of the eggplant dish; the sauce was a little acidic for my taste though. The halibut, on the other hand, exceeded all my expectations. The Tuscan chicken was tender, but overall it lacked flavor. Regarding the cake, it was fairly tasty, though a bit overcooked. I was quite impressed with the efficient design of your kitchen. I look forward to sampling the new brick-oven pizzas when they're introduced. It’s a shame you weren't able to offer them today.

Dear students,

Good news! Mr. Tatsuo Nomura has agreed to participate in our Speaker Series this spring. As part of your student internship responsibilities you will need to arrange his lodging here at the university for March 25-27 and have the necessary paperwork completed and approved so that Mr. Nomura can receive his honorarium. Please reserve a room for his presentation as well. I recommend McAneny Auditorium since it can accommodate the most people, but any of the presentation rooms in the business building would be fine.

Also, once Mr. Nomura provides his abstract, you will need to design a flyer and post it in the usual locations throughout the building. I trust you will be able to divide the work among the four of you without any issues. Thanks!

In the past few years, many financial institutions have restricted lending to reduce their risk. This practice, however, contributes to unfavorable market conditions. How can banks minimize risk while still providing suitable funding opportunities to entrepreneurs? One possible solution that is gaining in popularity is alternative finance. I will provide an overview of alternative finance, share some compelling data collected jointly by researchers at Kyoto Financial Group and Dunn School of Business, and discuss how this global banking innovation can revive our industry.
