It's correct. It's a command telling the person who is sorry not to be sorry, generally because the speaker believes that person has nothing to be sorry for (in other words, the speaker believes that person has done nothing wrong).

I'd say that people might associate work environment more with a job, the working conditions and the people you have to work with. And working environment can mean "the place where you get some work done" - which could be a job, or regular studying, or performing a task fixing something... or even something more abstract like the way you have your ...

I fully agree with the answer by @cactustictacs about the real but subtle difference between "work environment" and "working environment". I would add that "work environment"can include not only the physical circumstances, but includes the social and psychological situation in which work is to be performed. Indeed one form of on-...

It would be in a moment of stress, frustration and anger. In pain "ouch" or some non-verbal sound "aghhouuee" But if your computer monitor isn't working so you try to use your phone to check your emails but then you find that you need a mobile log-in code due to a new "security policy" that can only be provided by head office. ...

The speaker is saying that there aren't a lot of reasons to do something, but someone should do it anyway, just because it will have benefits that are academic in nature. Academia is the world of higher education, so maybe it will help someone who is a student. Perhaps the speaker is not talking about college and universities, etc., though - he might be ...

This is a term that refers to the area behind the three-point line. Any basket that is scored beyond the three-point line, or downtown, is worth three points. (source). Apparently "way downtown" means ...

It is so rare that there no usage. The judge may want to highlight some entries that did very well, but not quite well enough to win a prize. Everyone else is just not mentioned. I can't think of a situation in which a Judge says "Before I announce the winner let me mention some people who did really badly." That would be a form of "shaming&...

This is grammatically correct, and understandable. You can say it, but wouldn't usually. It's rather poetic and terse for everyday speech.

They are equivalent. They all mean the environment in the surroundings of your workplace. Just the "working environment" might be misunderstood, they might think that it is meant to be the "environment that works" :-) If I were you I might say: workplace environment

I heard someone saying "Don't be" in response to "I am sorry". I wonder whether it is correct... Is saying "Don't be" correct? Yes it is. It simply means "Don't be sorry."

It should be 'on winter evenings'. We use "on" rather than "in" when speaking about a specific date, for example: Yesterday, I watched TV in the evening. I watched TV on the evening of December 21st. Although your example does not specify a date, you do name the season 'winter', which acts as an adjective to the main noun 'evenings', so ...
