Live with prestige in the incredible Heart Hill Apartment Complex.
Located in the exclusive Heart Hill neighborhood, our rental apartments offer
the highest quality residences in the whole county. The Heart Hill Complex is
so popular it is even considered a landmark by the city chamber of commerce.
We used nothing but the best materials in building the apartments. All kitchen
cupboards are made with Canadian walnut and countertops are made from
Italian marble.
Based on a nationwide survey of what people like, the apartments were
planned with comfort and convenience in mind. The units have original layouts and all spaces are neatly designed.
Safe and neat, Heart Hill residences are popular with families and retirees
alike. Many residents commute less than 30 minutes to their jobs in the city.
In addition, the entire complex has wheelchair access.
Browse over one of our downloadable brochures for more details of our remarkable living spaces. Follow the driving instructions on the brochure if you
would like to pay us a visit.

Spacious Convention Center to be Built
July 19th, Washington D.C. There will be something new in Montgomery
county when construction on a convention center is completed. The state
government announced on Tuesday that a vast complex will be built in the
rather isolated municipality of Montgomery Village at a cost of 25 million taxpayer dollars.
Because of the reasonable property costs and a location only 16 miles from
key federal institutions, Montgomery Village was chosen as the site, according to a Department of Commerce spokesperson. In addition to its close
proximity to the congress building, the complex will also be near embassies
of nations that are important to the US economy.
The site is planned to blend in with local architecture and the natural environment. A long, tree-lined driveway is scheduled to be built so that the complex
will have a minimal impact on the local scenery. In addition, the pavement for
the driveway will be made from recycled materials. An underground parking
lot will also help preserve the views of nearby residences.
Construction is scheduled to begin next fall and is expected to be completed
within three years.

If you’re bored with your current job, you might want to think about having a
second career. Many people are not aware of the fact that there are many attractive professions waiting for them. The change usually cannot be made immediately, but with some research, education, and a bit of luck, there are
some fabulous opportunities for finding a second career.
For example, I personally know of a bookkeeper, bored with his job, who
ended up being the founder of a very successful trading business. Now, he is
an expert on international trade in the Asia-Pacific region.
I have also heard of an individual who used to be a librarian, but now is a bureaucrat for the national government. She took advantage of the books available at her former workplace to study for the civil servant examination and is
now very pleased with her career change.
Perhaps the most successful career changer I know is a young man who was
a technician, or more accurately a repairman, who was responsible for fixing
broken PCs at a computer company. He decided to use his creative talents to
become a successful entrepreneur of his own computer business.
No matter how long you’ve been at your current job, there are always opportunities to find a second career. All it takes is a lot of effort and a little luck.

Hello Cole,
I just got back from a sightseeing trip to Guatemala and I thought I would tell
you about it.
Because their specialty is booking unique excursions, the agency that I used
was really good. I just told them about my interests and they gave me a number of brochures to look at. A lot of the tours were overpriced, so it was easy
to make my selection.
After all, I booked round-trip ticket with hotel reservations for a very reasonable price. There were two connections on my flights, but, since I’m a student
with lots of time on my hands, I didn’t complain about time I lost in transit.
For most of the trip, I stayed at bed and breakfast inns that were usually in
authentic Guatemalan homes. These types of places were like hotels in how
they gave service. For example, they could promptly exchange currency, help
me prepare my day trip itineraries, and reconfirm my return flight. Anyway, I’ll
tell you more next time we meet.
Take care,

From the desk of the Managing Director
A plan for re-designating part-time employees to full-time staff has been authorized by the company director. The plan was finalized late last week and
will be implemented from the beginning of next month.
The director decided to classify part-time workers in the new way because
many of them had a similar workload as full-timers, but they did not get financial support for commuting to work and running company errands on their
own time.
Participants can get qualified for the plan by filling out a questionnaire and
verifying that they reside more than 5 miles from the main branch or one of
our affiliate offices.
We appreciate the hard work that all of our employees do for us, so we want
to insure that everybody is content working here. We are always open to suggestions and advice on how to better achieve our goals in the future.

Some tips on setting up your new printing apparatus
Thank you for purchasing one of the best printing devices on the market. We
have designed the product with specifications that make it the most efficient
one you can buy. We sincerely hope that you will be fully satisfied with your
new printer.
Most of the printer’s components are already set up for you, but you will have
to install and align the ink cartridge manually. To do this, open the cartridge
package and remove the protective tape from the nozzles. Next, open the
printer door and insert the cartridge into the proper slot. Close the door,
switch on the unit, and your printer will begin the alignment process. If the
printer fails to produce a sample print, restart the unit by disconnecting it
from the computer, reconnecting it and then turning it on.
Be sure to install the operating software for the unit and select the functions
you would like it to use during normal printing. While printing, you should see
a status bar on your display that shows the specifications of the document
currently being processed.
If you experience a malfunction with the device, we advise you to reboot your
computer and try reprinting your document. If you cannot print for technical
reasons, please contact our customer service department and we will repair
or replace it free of charge.

Smart investing for your future
Many people don’t know the difference between speculation and investing,
yet they are as different as success and failure. Speculation gives you a
slightly better chance than 50-50, but the potential for failure is still high.
Investing, on the other hand, is a disciplined plan of earning a good enough
yield to outpace the rate of inflation.
The most important component of a good investing strategy is allocation and
diversification. Allocation means dividing your money between stocks, bonds,
and cash so that all of your money is not in only one type of investment. If
one type of investment fluctuates greatly, the other types probably will not.
Diversification is also a way to reduce risk. For example, if you have only one
stock and it drops in value, your whole savings will suffer. However, if you
have 20 stocks and one of them drops, your total loss will be much lower.
If you have a pension plan, keep it with a reputable brokerage company and
ask a competent stockbroker to oversee your account. Also, don’t try to anticipate the future, but rather stay with your disciplined investing plan.
1. What is the main point of this article?

Los Angeles May 21st. To say that the premiere of “Something More to Say,”
the latest play by Sarah Foster, was satisfactory is an great understatement.
The tickets for the play were sold out and admission for some 50 adoring but
ticketless fans waiting near the entrance was rejected.
The lucky ones who did make it into the theater didn’t wait for the performance to end before applauding the actors - a rare occurrence for such a sophisticated audience. Praises were heard through the lounge as the audience
was making its exit.
According to the brochure handed out at the door, Sarah Foster has the reputation of being one of the best contemporary playwrights. Her biography
reads like a bizarre novel but she has obviously overcome hardships in her
life to become, in my opinion, the best modern playwright.
“Something More to Say” will indeed be a popular performance, so order
your tickets before the whole series is sold out.

Dear Ms. Adams,
The results of your yearly checkup have come in.
First of all, your nutrition seems to be good so you don’t have any problems
with anemia or high cholesterol and you’re certainly not diabetic.
On the other hand, your immune system isn’t as strong as it should be for
someone your age. While there is no easy remedy, I can recommend that you
get more rest and get a prescription for antibiotics as soon as you have signs
of an infection.
Also, we now have a clear diagnosis for you of asthma. It is a difficult disease
to treat, but rehabilitation is possible. One way is to have a series of injections
that boost your immune system. By exposing your body to what it is allergic
to, each dose of medication makes it stronger.
I suggest that you consult a specialist on allergies and asthma. I can refer you
to a good doctor if you like.
Sincerely,
Dr. Jody Martin
