As we discussed in our meeting this morning, this adversely affects the department. I have no alternative but to terminate your employment effective two days from today. Your last day will be July 14.

Questions 153-155 refer to the following advertisement.
All Quality, No Premiums
TURKISH and Domestic tobaccos when expertly blended produce a smoke more pleasing than either kind smoked straight.
That's what you'll find in Camel Cigarettes.
Premiums or coupons don't go with Camels, because the cost of the choice quality tobaccos makes it impossible for us to give them.
You can't buy a more delightful cigarette than Camels at any price. There's no tongue-sting nor unpleasant, cigaretty after-taste.
Camels come in a package of twenty and stand you the price of a dime.
If your dealer can't supply you, send 10c for one package or $1.00 for a carton of ten packages (200 cigarettes), sent postage prepaid.
If after smoking one package you are not delighted with CAMELS, return the other nine packages and we will refund your dollar and postage.

Mr. & Mrs. C. Hams
On behalf of the staff and students, I would like to thank you very much for allowing our students visit your dog farm again this year.
The children really look forward to this each year; in fact I would say it is one of the biggest highlights of their year for them. Apart from the “cute” side of the children having the opportunity to hold the puppies, which they love, it is very educational for them to see how professional breeding is managed in a safe, clean and caring environment. Their visit also complements what they learn in the “Responsible Pet Ownership” program we run each year.
I would like to wish you both a very Merry Christmas and relaxing holiday period, and look forward to catching up with you next year.

TO: Campaign Finance Legislative Commission
FR: Gina Noll and Dee Stewart, Commission members
RE: Explanation of Vote
DA: December 14, 1999
Extension of Campaign Finance Commission
On the question of extending the campaign finance commission, we decided to vote no for the following reasons.
First, the proposed extension was for one year and we agreed that time period was too long.
The commission could have easily studied the various issues in about three to four months.
A year-long study would have been a waste of taxpayer's dollars.
Secondly, the commission's members all represent groups that have special interests in changing campaign finance laws.
The biggest challenge, throughout the process, has been to find citizens who are genuinely concerned about campaign finance and harbor no political groups.
Until true members of the public are included on the commission, the extension will only lead to special interest groups crafting their own rules.
Finally, Lewa is nationally recognized as having a clean and honest electoral system.
The current laws, by any measure, are extremely fair and equitable.
Dramatic change in campaign finance laws is simply not needed.
For these reasons, we voted no on extending the life of the commission.

How far would you go to show your dedication to your favorite football team?
Well one fan was literally left breathless after he sprinted a mega five kilometers after the Arsenal team coach.
The Gunners, who are currently in Vietnam on the second leg of their Asia Tour 2013, were left in no doubt as to the commitment of their local supporters in Hanoi on Monday.
Their team coach, which was en route to the One Pillar Pagoda in the centre of the city, was followed for some five kilometers by a young fan later to become known as the ‘Running Man'.
The Vietnamese supporter was cheered on by the players as they chanted "Sign him up" as he maintained his pursuit of the coach.
And despite bumping into trees and a lamp post along the way he eventually clambered aboard a motorbike, reached the coach door and boarded the vehicle to a standing ovation from the Arsenal players.
He even managed to get a hug off manager Arsenal Wenger himself.
Arsenal play the Vietnam national side in the My Dinh National Stadium on Wednesday, kick-off time 1pm (UK time).
A Vietnamese football fan who chased Arsenal's team bus for miles through the streets of Hanoi said he has been invited to watch his heroes play in London.
"It was a dream come true for me to be invited to board the Arsenal bus and to meet coach (Wenger) and all the players, including my idol Mikel Arteta," he told AFP, adding that he felt "so lucky" to have met the team.
"I have also been invited to see Wenger's Arsenal team play at their home in London at Emirates Stadium, probably in August or September. It is really unbelievable," he said.
"It will be the greatest joy of my life," added the 20-year-old, who became an overnight media sensation after the video was posted on the Arsenal site on Tuesday.
Photographs of Tien with Wenger and other Arsenal players have been widely published in Vietnam's state media and in the foreign press.
He became the team's unofficial mascot on the Hanoi leg of their pre-season Asia tour
, and was invited to lead the Arsenal players onto the pitch at the My Dinh stadium in Hanoi before their Wednesday match against the Vietnamese national team, which they won 7-1.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I ordered a new pair of soccer cleats (item #6542951) from your website on June 21st. I received the order on June 26th, unfortunately, when I opened it I saw that the cleats had been used. The cleats had dirt all over it and there was a small tear in front of the part where the left toe would go. My order number is AF26168156.
To resolve the problem, I would like you to credit my account for the amount charged for my cleats, I already went out and bought a new pair of cleats at my local sporting goods store so sending another would result in me having two pairs of the same cleats.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I have been a satisfied customer of your company for many years and this is the first time I have encountered a problem. If you need to contact me, you can reach me at (555) 555-5555.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to bring to your attention some issues with my local train service.
I take the 8 am train from Manchester to Liverpool every morning. This week, my train has arrived at least 10 minutes late each day, and I have been unable to find a seat due to overcrowding.
Passengers are becoming increasingly frustrated. I have seen several people complain to members of your staff that the delays are making them late for work
, and the overcrowding means that many of us are forced to stand in the central aisle of the train for the duration of the journey. This is extremely uncomfortable.
I would like to suggest that you run a more regular service on the Manchester to Liverpool line. Another solution would be to add an extra carriage to trains at peak times in order to provide more space.
I hope you will address these concerns as soon as possible.
Dear Mr. Jones,
Thank you for taking the time to write to us about your concerns with the train service. It is passengers like you that allow us to improve on the system that we have in place. I would also like to give my apologies for the frustration you have encountered with the train system. Sometimes there are fluctuations with the volume of passengers that we accommodate and it may take time for us to adjust.
I have noted all of the problems that you have stated and will look into what has caused the delays and overcrowding with the service. If this is indeed a recurring problem then we will try to fix it as soon as possible. We want to provide the best service possible, so when we hear about problems like these we take them very seriously and try to remedy them quickly. We will also consider the suggestions you have offered.
I encourage you to continue reporting problems that you encounter with our service as soon as you can so we can have them documented. We would like to stay on top of any incoming problems that passengers come across. If you have any more suggestions or complaints, do not hesitate to call our hotline at (555) 555-5555.
