AnimalSense began in 1999 with a set mission to help dog owners live peacefully with their dogs, by using training methods backed by the steady hand of science. Classes only ever teach dog-friendly methods of positive reinforcement, a pleasant, pain-free experience for dog and owner alike. Class sizes are limited to allow for one-on-one instruction. The variety of classes available makes enrollment in the program sensible for beginners and previously trained dogs alike. Classes include options for dogs of mostly all temperaments, from a session for shy dogs, to Intro to Agility for fledgling performance hounds. This Groupon is not valid for special aggression classes such as Doggone Issues.

While immersed in the task of clothes shopping for her growing infant son, Genetta Jackson realized that she possessed a special talent for finding trendy garments. She began buying clothes and accessories not only for her son but also for other boys and girls. She'd venture out to find designer and even collectible kids' garments, and then she'd offer the items for sale online.

In 2012, Jackson opened King's Kloset Children's Boutique in a cozy space evocative of a child's bedroom—but without the constant screaming of Lego people. Shelves overflow with new and gently worn children's shoes, dresses, jackets, and even formalwear, such as pintsize Gucci shoes and custom-made bow ties. With a small toy section, the boutique is also a destination for gift shoppers.

The Dominican University Performing Arts Center's creative spirit swells in a season highlighted with multicultural music, dance, and drama. As a string quartet, Ethel's Juilliard-trained musicians pluck a viola, a cello, and a pair of violins to their own original compositions and those of contemporary composers. These skilled performers join with Grammy–winning Native American flutist Robert Mirabal for a cross-cultural mélange of melody-making inside the Lund Auditorium, whose acoustics are regularly tested by opera-singing mimes.

In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.

Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.

This mix of modern medicine and age-old spa treatments aims to both soothe and heal, just like all those old lullabies about mockingbirds curing babies' tension headaches.
