Also called Forex trading, the foreign currency exchange market is a turbo-powered world of almost unimaginable sums. Exchanging more than four trillion dollars—or eight thousand Jay-Zs—daily, the Forex market is roughly equal to eight times the volume of all of the world's stock markets combined. By equipping their students with a high-tech "black box" program, Forex 365 gives them the same edge enjoyed by market banks, investment firms, and precognitives. The algorithms applied by these programs track the market's actions in real time and allow for informed buying and selling in seconds. Supplemented with crucial information from the classes, which can last anywhere from 2.5 hours to 12 weeks, these tools can help fulfill dreams of market mastery.
Commanded by a retired Navy fighter pilot and commercial captain with more than 25,000 hours of flying experience, Grey Eagle Aviation's team of certified flight instructors guides students skyward via flights that range from first-time cruises to professional training missions. Students receive their instruction at [McClellan/Palomar Airport])(http://gr.pn/Mkma8u), a tower-controlled airfield that makes a great training environment due to its facilities, sunny weather, and ban on toy planes. Before placing them behind the steering column of a Cessna 152 or 172, instructors teach burgeoning pilots through ground studies in computerized classrooms with modern aids and training materials.
Founded in 1974, Golf Academy of America makes its impact on professional golf by helping instructors earn degrees in golf-course management and jump-starting amateur golf careers. The academy's staff of PGA Professional instructors develops proper form in students whether the student's ultimate goal is an academic degree or lower scores in a casual round. Private lessons at the indoor facility focus on the individual aspects of a golfer's game that need improvement. Focused attention helps the student produce straighter drives, more holed putts, and better approaches from roughs or the even-tougher-to-navigate oil slicks.
When Skyline Flight Training's fleet of Piper, Seneca, and Cessna aircraft lift off from the airstrip at Palomar Airport, they transform from airplanes into aerial classrooms for aviators-in-training. As students log hours in pursuit of a private or commercial pilot's license, the outfit's instructors keep a watchful eye to make sure they demonstrate safe techniques such as checking instruments and never sneaking up on a storm cloud. In addition to its lineup of advanced training regimens, Skyline invites less ardent aviators to try out its introductory lessons, which impart basic flying knowledge through both ground school and hands-on flying experience.
Named Best Honey in 2008 by the Dallas Observer, Round Rock Honey's 100% natural local wildflower honey is harvested from more than 90 sites by owners Konrad and Elizabeth Bouffard and their crews of trained beekeepers. With precision, they remove the liquid gold from hives by centrifuge, ensuring that pollen, trace minerals, and complex sugars are never compromised during the honey harvest. They then pour the honey through a stainless-steel sieve to remove potential bee legs and wings, wax caps, and miniature tiaras before bottling it and selling it to specialty stores, farmer's market visitors, and online customers.
A similar procedure happens in other parts of the country at Round Rock's beekeeping schools. During classes, Konrad Bouffard and Beekeeping Academy teachers impart their beekeeping knowledge upon suited-up students while they extract honey from a live beehive. Along the way, novices learn about the finer points of raising bees and keeping them healthy, as well as bee handling and lullaby-buzzing.
Arranged on stacks of wall-mounted shelves, untouched pieces of pottery wait for artists to apply creative expressions with paint. At two locations that will be celebrating 16 years in business this year, resident artists daub dishes, vases, and character figurines with colorings and patterns. Parents seeking keepsakes can complete a ?precious impressions? project, where they mold and paint a clay imprint of their child?s hands or feet. Other projects feature fused-glass jewelry and dishes, and intricately tiled mosaics.
