I have stayed at this hotel a number of times on business and am usually very satisfied. However, this time it seemed that the front desk was understaffed the entire time I stayed here. I had to wait for 20 minutes to check in, and it took over 20 minutes to check out. In addition, it was difficult to contact the front desk from my room. Twice the phone rang without anyone picking up. I realize this was a busy month for the hotel, but enough staff should have been put on duty to accommodate guests.

Palais Hotel Gets Top Chef

The Palais Hotel, known by insiders as Hong Kong's hidden jewel, is about to become very well-known. The hotel's Jade Restaurant has hired a new executive chef, cooking expert and chef extraordinaire Mei-Yi Gan. Gan, who took over the restaurant last month, has already made her mark by adding some of her signature dishes to the menu.

Gan has most recently worked as head chef at Hong Kong's four-star restaurant Room at the Top but is best known for her previous work as editor of East and West, a cooking magazine with an impressive international circulation. Gan studied under Master Chef Chun-Yuen Li, who praised Gan for being "a culinarily gifted student" and possessing "excellent instincts."

So far, the Palais Hotel has been aptly nicknamed. Staying in one of the luxurious rooms, or dining at the sophisticated Jade Restaurant, one gets a sense of experiencing something special, something still undiscovered. Based on the meals that Gan has produced there so far, we predict that the addition of this exceptional chef will serve to bring the hidden jewel out of hiding.

163. Where does Ms. Gan currently work?
164. What is implied about the Palais Hotel?
165. Who is CHun-Yuen Li?

We are proud of our long heritage and are confident you will appreciate the quality and craftsmanship that went into the making of your product. Our furniture is meant to last a lifetime. That is why we make every effort to inform our customers how best to treat it. We recommend the following.

- Use cleaning products that are made specifically for wood such as Bly's Wood Cleaner. Avoid multisurface cleaners, as these may leave streaks or an oily residue.
- To brighten a surface that has dulled, use a paste wax such as Russ Wax. Apply the wax no more than twice a year. Remove the old wax first with a mild, non-alkaline soap-and-water solution.
- Avoid wiping the furniture with a dry cloth, as this may leave hairline scratches on the finish.
- Avoid placing the furniture directly in front of radiators, heating ducts, and fireplaces.
- Do not expose the furniture to direct sunlight, as this may lead to fading.

We wish you a lifetime of enjoyment from your furniture. We appreciate your business, and we welcome your comments and suggestions. Simply call 604-555-0144 during regular business hours.

Ashland Foods to Enter Frozen-Foods Market

March 12 - Snack-food giant Ashland Foods announced yesterday that it is acquiring frozen-foods marker Addison May. Ashland Foods was the highest bidder in a two-month-long bidding war in which Belltown Foods was the other major contender. Hugh Tran, CEO of Addison May, said in a statement to Business Daily, "We are confident in the vision Ashland Foods has for our company and are sure that the integrity of our products will remain intact. "

Ashland Foods CEO Anna Baum said that "with the acquisition of Addison May, Ashland Foods expects to become an even bigger global competitor in emerging markets such as Latin America and China."

Addison May was founded 75 years ago. In the past 5 years, it has undergone two restructurings and has downsized its product line to 18 core products. The company is known for its Meals for Two line of frozen dinners, as well as for its Bakery Delights line of frozen pastries. Because of its strong brand recognition, the Addison May name and logo will still appear on the front of its packaging. On the back, the labels will read "Produced and distributed by Ashland Foods. "

The acquisition is set to take place on May 1. There has been no statement regarding the impact the acquisition will have on Addison May's 17, 000 employees worldwide.

In response to the news of the acquisition, Ashland Foods' stock rose 5 percent yesterday.

Theater Comes Back to Life

<span class="q176-1">September 1 marks the beginning of the twentieth theatrical season at Shoreline Playhouse in Meadow Lakes</span>, an event that just one year ago few thought would ever take place.

Over the past three years the Playhouse has seen its share of troubles. The opening of Field Theater in nearby Mooreland City meant that Shoreline Playhouse was no longer the only destination for area theatergoers. In addition, the generous grants given to Field Theater by the Walters Foundation meant larger-scale productions there that had a broader appeal. Shoreline Playhouse found itself operating at a loss, with little idea of what the future would hold.

Proud of its long theater heritage, the town of Meadow Lakes decided it would not be outdone by Mooreland City. The town stepped in and purchased the Lake Drive property on which the Playhouse stands. The town leased the property back to the Playhouse for the next 25 years as a hands-off landlord. In addition, town residents raised a significant amount of money in donations through their Save Our Playhouse campaign.

These efforts have paid off enormously. Milton Shaffer, executive director of Shoreline Playhouse, says that "because of what the town has done for us, we are now able to offer our best season yet. We have big names in theater who will grace our stage this season, including actors William Farr, Eva Johnson, and Clyde Wells, and musical theater luminaries Mary Noda and Henry Formann. " Shaffer goes on to add, "We have a great lineup of theatrical productions with broad intergenerational appeal, such as Angela DiFalco's classic play Two Floors Down, Beth Heard's Windswept Lane, Blanca Flores' Far Away Home, and Anthony Ward's new musical Stepping Out of Time, which will make its debut here at Shoreline Playhouse. "

The sight of relief around Meadow Lakes is almost audible. The Shoreline Playhouse can now concentrate on what it does best, enriching the area with firstclass theater productions. As resident May Gramercy puts it, "Art, whether it's visual art, music, or theater, is necessary for a good life. We'd never let our town be without it. "

Dear Dr. Novakova,

On behalf of the International Architectural Preservation Society, I'd like to invite you to give the opening keynote address at our conference in Budapest from August 31 to September 3. This would be on August 31 at 2:00 P. M. at the Hotel Danube, where the conference will be held.

The Preservation Society is impressed by your leadership in the recent restoration of the Opera Towers in your city. Your commitment to preserving the architectural elements of such an important landmark is a shining example of the best efforts preservationists strive to put forth. I am certain that conference attendees from around the world will be very interested in the processes and methods you used to bring the towers back to their original seventeenth-century splendor.

We hope you will consider speaking at the conference. Please contact me at +43-8664-42332 or e-mail at jbaumgarten@goetzuniversity. ac. at.

Dear Dr. Baumgarten,

I was thrilled to receive your letter and to hear that my work is well regarded, especially by such an esteemed organization as yours. Of course, I would be honored to be a part of the conference and will be happy to talk about a subject that is so important to me, the restoration of the Opera Towers.

I have a conflict, however, on day one of the conference. I have an important appointment with a grant-giving foundation that afternoon, which is of great importance to my next project, the restoration of a historic school building in Potsdam. Would it be possible for me to speak some time during the second or third day of the conference? Perhaps I could give the closing address.

I'd very much like to participate. Please let me know if this would work.

Sincerely,
Adriana Novakova

To: All Monahan Books Staff
From: James Monahan
Date: 15 March
Subject: Staff Recommendations

As you know, when our customers browse for books, they often ask you, our staff members, for recommendations. As you may also know, April is Contemporary Irish Writers Month. In honor of that, I'd like to create a display on the east wall of our store that showcases our staff's recommendations for books by Irish writers. I'd like each of you to choose a book you enjoyed reading and write a paragraph which gives a synopsis of the book and describes why you recommend it. Recommendations can be written on a form that is available in my office. The book you recommend should have been written by a writer who is currently living and writing here in Ireland. The book can be fiction or nonfiction and must have been published within the past five years. Your recommendation will be displayed next to copies of the book.

I know that all of you are avid readers. I'm looking forward to seeing our customers' reactions to this display and to your knowledge and expertise. Please have recommendations written by 25 March.

Thank you.

James

Manhan Books Employee: Moira Dunn
Recommended book: Home Fires Burning
Author: Noel Black

_____

First-time novelist Noel Black brings us the story of Gabriel Moore, a successful Irish physician living in London, who returns to his native County Clare, Ireland, to care for his ailing father. Upon Gabriel's arrival, his father reveals something that could bring the already difficult relationship between father and son to its breaking point. Black explores family dynamics with a poignant reality unmatched by most contemporary writers. An added bonus is Black's cast of village characters who add charm and humor to a serious subject. The reader is also treated to beautiful descriptions of the lush landscapes that make County Clare unique. Home Fires Burning is an entertaining read and is money well spent.

Subject: Brew Master 400A
Date: July 12

I purchased a Brew Master 400A Automatic Grind Coffeemaker just under one year ago (serial #4XR400A94732). It had been working very well up until last week, but now the coffee is much weaker than usual. I consulted the manual that came with the coffeemaker and followed the suggestions. First, I followed the directions on page 6 to confirm that the filter basket was inserted properly. Then, I checked that the strength setting was correct and that there was an appropriate quantity of coffee beans in the coffee-bean holder. However, the coffee still is not as strong as it should be. Is there anything else you can recommend before I send the machine in for repair? I have purchased several Brew Master coffeemakers over the years, and they have always lasted much longer than a year. Thank you.

Thank you,

Lester Ang

Email

From: Technical Service
To: Lester Ang
Subject: Brew Master 400A
Date: July 13

Mr. Ang,

Thank you for your detailed e-mail. It is helpful to know that you have already explored potential problem areas. Since you did not locate the source, I suspect that the chute for the ground coffee is clogged. This is the area that connects the grinder to the filter and is the part through which the freshly ground coffee beans enter the filter basket.

To rectify the problem, you will need to remove the coffee-bean holder. Lift the cover from the chute and clean out any coffee grounds that might be stuck in there. Replace the chute cover and the coffee-bean holder, and your machine should be ready to brew coffee to the desired strength. It is helpful to clean the chute every six months.

As a reminder, the warranty you purchased on this machine has almost expired. You have the option to extend the warranty for another six months. You can do this online at www. brewmaster. com/warranty.

Thank you for using a Brew Master coffeemaker.
