GrammarCamp harnesses the accessibility of the Internet to help students improve their understanding of the English language. Its online courses improve grammar skills and sentence structure through interactive lessons and knowledge quizzes on recently practiced material. Unlike traditional classes that require students to attend a scheduled meeting and memorize school anthems, GrammarCamp's self-paced curriculum allows students to study at any time of the day. Additionally, one-time registration grants students lifetime access to course materials, allowing them to restudy difficult lessons or refresh their memory on prepositional phrases.
As the sun dips into the horizon, a bride and groom share a quiet conversation, almost forgetting that their photographer, Mike Impens, is mere feet away from them snapping shots of their special day. Mike's photojournalistic and candid approach to portraiture helps him compose photographs that tell a story and organically reveal his subjects’ personalities. Many such scenarios have played out during portrait shoots in Mike's laid-back studio on the southern shore of Lake Erie as well as under his watchful eye during alfresco sessions all around the region. Along with capturing the events that are most important to his clients, such as weddings and family outings, Mike also maintains a portfolio of sports photography, snapping energy-filled action shots of teams and individuals playing hockey, baseball, and soccer.

These days, electronic gadgets have become extensions of the human body. With such heavy use, accidents are bound to happen—and that's when the technicians at J&J Electronics ER swoop in to save the day. They don't roar onto the scene in an ambulance when a screen cracks, or wheel busted laptops into their shop on stretchers. They do, however, replace the LCD glass on Apple devices and rescue video game consoles from overheating issues. They also recover data on computers and eliminate viruses so owners don't have to spray Amoxicillin into USB ports.
