SUBJECT: Job posting
Dear Mr. Harris: I saw your job posting for a licensed medical assistant. I recently relocated from Paris and need to find work. I received my license from the Bureau de Médecin in 2011 and have kept it up to date since then. If the position is still open, I would like very much to apply. Please let me know what other information you need.
Thank you for your attention,

SUBJECT: Broken computer
I am writing to request a replacement for a computer I bought a year ago that has already stopped working. I took it to the repair shop and they said it was a problem with the motherboard and would cost so much to fix, I might as well get a new computer. I've lost the original receipt but I did buy the extended warranty plan so I should be able to get it replaced. Please let me know how to exchange this one for a new one that works.
[You are a customer service representative at Ajax Computer Corp. Decide whether or not you will exchange Katya's computer for a new one, then write her an email explaining your choice. Give two reasons, and instructions about what to do next.]

"Civil disobedience" is when you break the law or social rules on purpose to bring attention to a cause (a principle or aim that a group supports or fights for) and push for change. People may be arrested when performing civil disobedience.
Can you think of any examples of civil disobedience that have happened in the world? What were the people fighting for? What action did they do?
Is there a cause you think is worth being arrested for? What is it, and why do you feel that way?
