Diverting his attention from a particularly active nest of eptesicus fuscus, he began photographing the orb, which made no attempt to flee or conceal itself. Hansen continued to document the orb as it reappeared over his house, each night shrinking slightly “as though passing slowly into the spirit world,” Hansen observed. On particularly cloudy nights, the orb would not be present, prompting Hansen to speculate that ghosts may be allergic to thunder.
Frank Hesson began his career as a professional golf instructor at the age of 20, fine-tuning the swings of his students in the shadow of the McDowell Mountain Range at the prestigious Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale, Arizona. Over the past 17 years, Hesson has worked as an assistant professional at four South Jersey golf clubs before becoming head professional at Renault Winery Resort.
During lessons, Hesson follows a teaching philosophy that simplifies golf skills and tailors each lesson plan to his students needs. Frank focuses on each player's individual playing style and tendencies for passive-aggressive golf-carting to help him or her develop comfortable, dependable swing mechanics. Teaching aides include on-course lessons on an 18-hole course, as well as virtual swing analysis and club recommendations from a virtual caddie.
Learning to read, solve math problems, or master any school subject relies on one thing: the brain. With this in mind, the coaches at Learning Solutions eschew traditional tutoring methods that focus on one subject at a time. Instead, they use brain-training games and other mind exercises designed to hone a child's overall cognitive skills. The coaches work with students of all abilities, including gifted children. They also specialize in helping those with ADHD, autism, and dyslexia. LearningRx's team also works with adults and seniors.
