Last holiday season,it was Macy's and Best Buy--retailers promising delivery in one hour with a new service called eBay Now.A year later,eBay's

expanded the service and competitors are cropping up.The latest-- a San Francisco startup called Six Doors."Startup" means to set something in

motion.It often used in business stories about new companies. A business that is just beginning and trying to establish itself is a startup.

Now,when you hear the word  "statup,"your English will be good enough to know what this News Word means.
