Spread out across nine locations in New Jersey and New York, Treasure Island Self Storage's complexes safely house personal belongings in climate-controlled units protected by password-controlled gates and overseen by 24-hour video-surveillance feeds. The units come in a variety of sizes and are accessible seven days a week. Customers can take advantage of drive-up access and ground-floor loading, a more convenient way to store trinkets than shipping them to a relative's attic. At each location, a professional consultant is ready to assist customers, and an assortment of boxes, tape, and other packing supplies are available at each location to provide items a smooth and secure passage. Select locations are also U-Haul-authorized dealerships equipped to rent out moving trucks. Other locations provide free use of their own trucks for clients who can't balance a couch on their handlebars.
The shutterbugs at MotoPhoto capture natural expressions in portrait shoots, but they also enhance those shots with retouching services. Rather than drawing smiles on their subjects with lipstick, the professionals elicit relaxed dimples during their sessions, and they are happy to aim their lenses either in-studio or at the subjects’ home. After the experts edit out their flyaway hairs, subjects can order everything from collages and calendars to custom photo books and greeting cards.
In addition to creating new images, MotoPhoto deals with existing photographs, scanning the contents of old albums to create digital files and restoring age-worn photographs. They also transfer the contents of VHS tapes to DVDs, preserving videos of a youngster’s first bike ride or a tiny pothole’s first attempt to wreck a bicycle.
In 1976, Curtis Colby befriended a boy named Joey, whose father had died. Curtis spent time mentoring him as a volunteer and discovered Joey's younger brother also was in need of a strong male role model. This connection was the original impetus for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth & Middlesex Counties, which connects youth with responsible and positive adult mentors through community- and school-based programs to help change their lives for the better. Youth aged 6–14 who have one-on-one relationships with mentors have reported increased self-esteem, an improved ability to express their feelings, and better attitudes toward school.
In support of her high-decibel new album, Rihanna kicks off her hotly anticipated LOUD tour with emphatic gusto and a sizzling roster of special guests. Like an art show at a sundae bar, the LOUD tour floods the senses, enchanting audiences with lavishly designed sets, myriad costume changes, move-busting dancers, and Rihanna's songbook of Grammy magnets. Crooner Cee Lo Green augments the songful offerings with his own vocal talents, and Roc Nation rapper and rhythm scientist J. Cole further helps resuscitate ear drums traumatized by the outside world's blaring car horns and shrill howler monkeys.
