MEMOFrom: Eun Mi Ha, CEO
To: All Employees
Subject: January 10 Meeting
Date: January 13

As announced at the company meeting on January 10, we will be changing the regular work hours for most employees as part of our initiative to reduce energy costs. Since our energy costs are generally higher in the late afternoon, it will be to our advantage to perform more work in the morning. Therefore, beginning on Monday, February 24, the workday will officially start at 8:00 A.M. instead of 9:00 A.M., and it will end at 4:00 P.M. instead of 5:00 P.M. The last day of the old schedule will be Friday, February 21, and the office will close at 5:00 P.M. on that day.

Employees in the accounting department will not be affected by the change, since their schedule is determined by normal banking hours.

155. What are employees asked to do?
156. When will the change go into effect?

OSTRAVA (20 February) — Old City Museum in Ostrava, Czech Republic, will undergo a major refurbishment beginning 1 April. The site houses the area’s largest collection of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century paintings. The repair of the 300-year-old building began nearly a decade ago but had been put on hold because of a lack of financial support. Thanks to funds from the Czech Architectural Preservation Society and significant private donations to the museum, the project can now be completed. Architect Zbysek Dvorak, who is based in Prague, says, “Since the museum’s board first contacted me during the initial stages of the project, I have been committed to maintaining the building’s original architectural elements.” The museum will close during the months of April and May, but key parts of the museum will be reopened to the public in June, just as tourist season begins.

161. What is suggested about Mr. Dvorak?

These can be purchased for a fee of $10, $25, $40, and $60, respectively, at the visitor information center located at the park’s entrance. Cards can also be ordered online at www.avinapark.com. Online orders will be delivered to your address within approximately a week of your order.

As a special courtesy to annual card holders, we currently offer a 50 percent discount on fees charged for facilities and services including camping, swimming, boat rentals, and fishing equipment rentals.

Every story on the site will have a form at the end through which readers can post comments or e-mail the writer directly. “We hope to make the site a hub for interaction,” said Mr. Wong. “As the city’s main business newspaper, we need to hear from Singaporean business professionals.”

The Gazette will be celebrating twenty years of publication on 27 July. A special print edition of the paper will contain a commemorative insert featuring a detailed time line of its history and accompanying photos of the central business district through the years. The paper’s online archives are also scheduled to open that day, granting readers access to every article since the inception of the Gazette.
