Questions 51-52 refer to the following note card.

Thank you for sending me another of your company’s food blenders in exchange
for my product feedback. The motor of the Lumtik IB-8900 seem to be a bit more powerful than the motors of the two blenders I reviewed previously. This one does a great job, especially on the high-speed setting. One thing that is disappointing is that the measurement lines were not easy to decipher and seem to fade and become less legible after several washings. This may be a problem with the imprinting on the device. The measurement lines need to be…engraved or permanently marked to be clearer. Needless to say, this is important for recipes that require precisely measured ingredients.

Clearhold Coating is a newly developed, transparent waterproofing system that is

possible with our competitors’ waterproofing materials. Clearhold will stop humidity
from seeping up through subfloors and can be applied before installation of adhesive
and floor coverings such as carpet, tile, laminate, or hardwood. 

Clearhold will be available in stores starting in January. For more information, visit
www.clearholdcoating.com.

Gentle washing with a cloth or soft sponge is preferred. — [3] —.
— [4] —. Should you have any questions about your Minot Griddle, please visit our

Questions 164-167 refer to the following article.

Closing Early on Summer Fridays
HOUSTON (June 3)—Summer just became more relaxing for employees of Aftnax Software, where the company recently instituted a Summer Friday policy. — [1 ] —. From now until the first week in September, the office closes at 1 P.M. so employees can go home early. “It’s great to have that 1 P.M. cutoff,” says Clay Jackson, an Aftnax employee for
the past decade. — [2] —. “Some nights I can stay in the office until seven or eight if I have a project I need to finish. But knowing that the office is closing its doors early on Friday frees me up to spend more time with my family.” In addition to boosting workers’ morale,  studies have found that scheduled downtime actually increases productivity. — [3] —. The number of firms offering this perk has increased by 23 percent in the past five years. Remmor Tech, one of the first local companies to institute a similar policy, says that ever since it began offering time off on Fridays twelve years ago, it has seen a marked improvement in employee satisfaction. — [4] —. “Our employees’ happiness is important to us,” says Alexandra Odoms, the CEO of Remmor. “We know that if we care about our employees, then our employees will care about the work they do for us.”
