The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change package, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians—all of which have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)—service vehicles at Jiffy Lube. In addition to performing oil changes, technicians offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
Stadium 10 at Northgate's theaters transport audiences into the worlds of first-run movies with immersive picture and sound, comfortable stadium seating, and ample snacks. Plush, high-backed chairs prop up viewers against the torrent of crashes, booms, and Wilhelm screams blasting from the DTS digital-sound systems as they ogle current releases. Handfuls of fluffy Orville Redenbacher's popcorn keep bellies full, and frothy sodas keep tongues wetted while guests stare agape at epic action scenes. Screens also glow during showings in RealD 3-D, giving landscapes, set pieces, and two-dimensional action stars a feeling of depth.

That's why they devote their days to diagnosing, scrubbing, and repairing infected hard drives. In addition to their virus-busting maintenance appointments, the experts can also install new hardware, manage SEO requirements, and help businesses find the networking and tech packages that meet their specific needs.
Inside the massive expanse of Ho-b RC Park, certain echoing sounds are constant. The blow of a starting horn. The whir of miniature wheels on the carpeted track. The intermittent thud of an RC car taking a turn too sharply. These sounds let visitors know that a race is underway, where drivers by proxy stand atop a block overlooking the racetrack and thread their scaled-down cars through tight curves and long straightaways. Post-race, drivers can peruse the shop for new vehicles, replacement parts, and aftermarket decals branded by miniature detergent companies.

Fully licensed and insured, experts at Esthetically Correct transform yards into groomed, eye-pleasing spaces with landscaping services that range from routine maintenance to elaborate design and construction work. A professional lawn mowing begins with careful edging and trimming work, which quashes a lawn's natural temptation to claw its way across sidewalks, into gardens, and over guests dozing in low-slung hammocks. Mowers then trim grass to an attractive, even length suitable for barefoot strolls and competitive croquet. Clippers clear debris by blowing away shredded grass before departing, leaving yards ready to showcase in the background of family photos or the foreground of ant photos after about 45 minutes.
