1. Managing your diet 5. Out of business
2. Profitable for business 6. Good housekeeping
3. Change of taste 7. Staying organised
4. Managing your finances 8. Change of climate
A. If you’re looking for investment opportunities, there are various money magazines that can help you put your money in the right place. Everyone wants to make the most of their hard-earned cash and no one can afford to lose it all on a bad trading venture. If you read up on the financial industry and seize on the good trends, you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank.
B. Staying in a hotel isn’t always luxurious, but it should at least be clean. No one likes using a basin or shower that’s got a bit of dirt in it, and bed sheets should be fresh and well-made. Even if the room starts off clean, it can soon become messy if the maid service doesn’t come every day. Every hotel should been kept neat and in good order.
C. If you’ve ever had to move to the other side of the world, you’ll know it can take a long while to adjust, especially to simple things like the weather. If you’re used to experiencing four distinct seasons in the year, then you move to the tropics, you might find yourself missing the snow. Naturally, if you hated snow in the first place, the warm weather would be a welcome experience.
D. Some people have to watch what they eat because their system simply won’t allow them to tolerate some things. For example, there are people who are allergic to dairy products, so they must avoid milk and anything made from it. Other people are prone to high cholesterol, so they have to avoid meat a bit more often than others. Anyone who suffers from a wheat allergy has to avoid certain breads.
E. Hotels have to modernise just like everything else. Why go on holiday and stay in a place that makes you feel as though you’ve stepped back into the 1970s? It may be clean and professionally staffed, but it’s not nice to look at orange curtains or flowery carpets. If a hotel spends a little money and updates its image, people will be more likely to stay there and come back.
F. There are many difficult things about moving, especially when it comes to unpacking. It’s helpful if you’ve got every box labelled, but still, if you’ve just moved in and you’re in a hurry for something, it can be quite frustrating trying to find it. You have to stop and think, 'Where did I put it?’ It’s probably best to get everything unpacked straight away and put it in the right place.
G. If a company is not doing well, perhaps it’s wise to hire an advisor. This person can tell the directors how much they should be spending on one or more expenses, and how they can better organise their company. After all, a company can’t continue to succeed if it’s not able to hold onto the money that comes into it.

Dream job
It wasn’t my first interview by any means, but I had never wanted a job as much as I wanted this one. For years I had been floating from one job to the next, not sure of what I wanted to do in life but needing some way to afford living on my own. I had filled many temporary positions and a few permanent ones, or at least ones that the employers considered to be permanent, even though I didn’t think of them in that way I had met many interesting people and made a few friends, but I’d never felt that Id found a post that suited me. Interestingly enough, many of the friends I’d made along the journey felt the same way.
I had worked in a restaurant serving food, in an insurance office reviewing people’s claims, at a PR firm thinking of ways to impress important people, and even on a construction site building homes. An odd set of skills you might think, and none of them really appropriate for the job I was going for now - forest conservation. This was an area I’d been passionate about as a teenager, but didn’t think I could ever make a living from. Now I’d decided to give it a chance. Some of the skills I’d picked up along the way had even been in direct conflict with it, such as the pounding of nails into wood. Those poor trees! Now I’d be in charge of saving them. Well, I hoped I would be anyway.
I’d done a lot of preparation for this one interview, this one shot at fulfilling my destiny. I tried not to be too dramatic - naturally there were other interviews to be had, or so I had to think, to take some of the pressure oft. I had searched for this job for over a year, even considering moving across the country, onlv to decide to wait until something came up round here. It wasn’t easy to get your foot in the door in this line of work. And not just anyone could do it, hence my two years of graduate work.
There was no telling how many other people were vying for this position. The number of CVs that office received must have been in the hundreds. It’s tough finding a job these days, let alone the job you want. But we mustn’t let things like that stop us from getting what we want out of life. I’ve resigned myself to believing that if there’s something you really want, you have to really focus on getting it, and that means blocking out discouraging thoughts. I had to believe that the job was mine, despite the pain I might have to endure if I didn’t get it.
I imagined the interviewers to be a great bunch of guys. Here they were, doing what they loved to do. Certainly there was gratification to be found in any job, even in the jobs I mentioned before. But dignity and self-respect depend on your own view of life, and how you see yourself as a benefit to the world. And of course, what you feel would satisfy you the most personally.
So I would do my best to convey these feelings during the hour or so I had with the directors, and cross my fingers for a call back. I suppose everyone passing through their doors would be doing the same thing, but if I could express my deepest passion for preserving forests, which I’ve realised was my destiny all along, surely I would be doing myself the biggest favour.

Solar panels are a commonly used form of technology which harness power from the sun. They work by converting sunlight into electricity. However, most solar panels only convert about 20% ot the incoming energy. This is because they can only capture certain wavelengths of light.
Advances are being made in the field of solar panel technology. Recently a solar cell was manufactured that can convert almost 45% of the rays’ energy. The panel consists of different layers of material, and each layer can absorb a certain wavelength of light. The panels also have lenses, which magnify the power of the sunlight. As the sunlight passes through the layers, it strikes conductors, which create electrical fields. These electrical fields produce a current of electricity.
