A bank in Taiwan was fined by the U.S government for violating anti-money-laundering laws. The Taiwanese government decided to implement strict laws to regulate financial institutions. In response to the new laws, financial institutions have to train their employees and review their policies and procedures to ensure that they comply with the new standard. This is the piece of news I would like to share with you.
I agree that friends are the most important influence in my life. First, I prefer to seek my friends' suggestions when making decisions. For example, when I was in high school, I asked my friends which university I should go to. Second, I can always learn something from my friends. For example, a friend of mine works in the marketing department. He specializes in digital marketing. I can learn about digital marketing from him. That’s the reason why I think so.
The university is going to send students an email every day to inform students of all campus activities. The woman in the conversation supports this policy. First, the university used to publish campus activities on campus paper once a week. Therefore, students cannot have up-to-date information. Also, as students check their emails at least once a day, it is easy for the university to notify all the students if campus activities are cancelled. That’s the reason why the woman in the conversation supports the university’s policy.
The professor uses an example to illustrate the concept of questioning awareness of effect. Take the professor as an example. One time, he taught children to raise their hands before answering questions in classes. However, Sarah refused to raise her hand before speaking. Therefore, the professor asked Sarah whether she noticed that it was unfair for children who followed the rule. Without waiting for Sarah to answer the question, he continued his lecture. As a result, Sarah changed her behavior. She learned to raise her hand before speaking in classes. This is the example provided by the professor to illustrate the concept of questioning awareness of effect.
The woman in the conversation is the director of a play. The play is going to open in one week. However, a supporting actor cannot remember his lines. Therefore, the woman has to decide whether she should replace the actor or she should help the actor to remember his lines. I suggest that she should help the actor to remember his lines. In this way, she does not have to worry that the actor will feel disappointed. However, she has to spend extra time helping the actor. These are the suggestions I would like to give to solve the problem mentioned in the conversation.
The professor uses examples to describe two changes brought by machines. The first change is that the production center shifted from homes to factories. For example, people used to weave cloth in their houses. However, with the invention of steamed machines, factories started to produce cloth. Second, as more people were hired by factories, villages started to become cities. These are the examples provided by the professor to describe two changes brought by machines.
