The staff at Alaska Nails, a professional nail salon and school, paints digits in dapper shades while pampering limbs with a variety of spa services. Clients and comrades can perch on multiple pedicure chairs or in-house high wires as technicians brush coats of polish onto outstretched phalanges. Add-ons such as long-lasting Shellac, hand and foot massages, and paraffin dips soothe appendages as patrons repose near the salon's hanging tapestries. Adept artists can also scribe custom nail designs onto tips, ranging from glossy bow ties to accurate topographical maps of the moon. Alaska Nails is open seven days a week until 6 p.m. or 7 p.m.

And second, the staff aims to benefit the caretakers, giving them a few hours off knowing their loved ones are in a safe environment and overseen by professionals.

In 1946, just after the end of World War II, Norman Brown hand-set the type and hand-fed a Linotype press to roll out the first 16-page issue of the Anchorage News. Over the following decades, the publication changed its moniker to the Anchorage Daily News to account for its shift to daily delivery and stocked its trophy cabinet with two Pulitzer Prizes for Public Service, cementing its regard in the minds of Alaskans.

Today, the newspaper lands on more than 50,000 doorsteps each week. The freshly printed folds contain the latest local news, from political updates on the debate over offshore drilling to explanations of how the school system is developing a new math curriculum to help children count past 20 without using each other’s fingers and toes. The sports section keeps up with the Aces’ triumphs, whereas the outdoors pages cover the Iditarod and the latest goings-on at Denali National Park. Readers can also gain insight into the business world, challenge their outlooks with editorials, and peruse entertainment articles before deciding to go see a local improv group or movie.

Founded with the objective of simplifying the often overcomplicated art of digital photography, fotoscool employs a team of seasoned instructors—each a longtime professional with a celebrated career—to guide photography students through seminars and workshops held across the country. Keeping their overarching objective of simple-yet-entertaining instruction in mind, savvy teachers design each session to get participants on their feet with hands-on activities such as interactive exercises, on-location shoots in scenic locales, and bonding human-camera trust falls. In an effort to branch out of the classroom, fotoscool also periodically hosts tours that ferry photo enthusiasts to scenic far-flung locales for extended shooting lectures and on-site experience.
