Red Wind Chapter One by Raymond Chandler (story reading)
This is great prose. If you want to read the rest it's here: http://www.ae-lib.org.ua/texts-c/chandler__red_wind__en.htm I just barely squeezed it into 15 minutes.

1.5.5 The modern day relationship
To set up a care relationship that works well is a delicate matter, whether you are at the giving or the receiving end. In this unit we explore the very varied meanings of care relationships and how these meanings arise.

One of the biggest problems facing people living on a very low income is how to afford adequate heating.
