Questions 168-171 refer to the following e-mail.
Date: Tuesday, October 2
Subject: Food Photography Article
Dear Ms. Bellandini:
I have some news regarding your article that is scheduled to be published in the next issue of Delicatessen Magazine. —  —. Yesterday, we learned that a major advertiser canceled their contract with us, and as a result, we will have to reduce the number of pages in our upcoming issue. This is extremely unfortunate, but we just do not have enough money without these ads to publish the magazine in its current format. —  —.
We know that readers have enjoyed reading about your experiences in Italy. 7  #. While your eight—page story about working as a food photographer is excellent, in order to ﬁt in the slimmer issue, it will need to be cut by about thirty percent. Although I sincerely hope you agree to having your article published in our upcoming issue, I will understand if you would rather have the article published in full at a later time. However, I have to let you know that the magazine industry is not always the most stable business, and for this reason, I do not know if there will be space for your story in the future. —  —.
Please let me know as soon as possible what you would like to do. Should you agree to edit the story, I will need the new version by Monday.

Questions 176-180 refer to the following e-mail and notice.
I just want to remind everyone that crews will begin construction on the new Colton Medical Nutrition Center on June 18.
Effective June 15, parking areas F and G will be closed until August 20, when construction is expected to be completed. Staff currently assigned to park in areas F and G will be given temporary “guest” parking stickers and must park in the guest—parking garage. The Property Maintenance Ofﬁce will place stickers in staff mailboxes by 4 RM. today. The sticker should be displayed on the driver’s side window of the vehicle.
A construction access road will be created by closing the entrance and exit roads to parking areas F and G. This will also block access to the security building and the pond. However, a temporary alternative entranceway to those locations will be created. To help eliminate excessive trafﬁc, please visit those places only when absolutely necessary. Take note that the Information Center at the main entrance will remain open during construction.
Please e-mail me directly with any questions regarding parking stickers.
WELCOME TO COLTON MEDICAL CAMPUS INFORMATION CENTER
Staff members who normally use these areas and who have not yet received a temporary parking sticker should request one at the security station. A valid access card and staff ID are required.
