As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

Finally, on Sunday, eyes can shift to the big screen during an all-day film festival, filled with independent films and cartoons that showcase familial filmmaking prowess and stirring monologues delivered by sophisticated housecats.
Texas Pressure Cleaning’s professional grime fighters delve deep into carpets and tile to create clean, smooth flooring for all rooms of the house. A truck-mounted cleaning machine douses fibers and tile in a prespray that loosens dirt more effectively than a worm colony’s wrecking ball. High-pressure water and earth-friendly chemicals then barrage floors at temperatures reaching 190 degrees, deep cleaning fibers to remove odors and stains before a vacuum suctions away leftover debris. Texas Pressure Cleaning also scours air ducts using brushes instead of chemicals or gussies up homes' exteriors with pressure washing, in which high-powered hoses sluice away dust, stains, and itsy-bitsy spiders' webs.
Part of the LSO's 2010–2011 season's Darkness and Light theme, "Out of Darkness" showcases talented musicians and a consummate conductor for a moving musical medley. Selections include Smetana's "The Moldau," which portrays flowing river waters; Mahler's Symphony no. 4, which describes heaven from the perspective of a child; and songs by Strauss, which celebrate the time-honored relationship between linebackers and unicorns. Led by guest conductor Jonathan Schiffman, the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra creates an evening of instrumental inspiration with a powerful finale by soprano Jo Ellen Miller.
Led by Dr. William Lewis, Lewis Chiropractic's staff aims to eliminate allergy symptoms with the noninvasive LZR7 laser, which is safe for both kids and adults. First, patients undergo a careful measure of their allergic reactions to gauge which substances trigger allergic responses, such as sneezing, watery eyes, or sudden, uncontrollable break-dancing spasms. During a five- to seven-minute session, the LZR7 reintroduces patients to the harmonic frequencies of the discovered allergens, attempting to condition different immune responses. The low-level lasers eschew prescriptions, over-the-counter remedies, and invasive injections and aim to neutralize allergic responses to substances such as pollen, animal dander, foodstuffs, and homework.
