Feathered Friends Forever Parrot Rescue and Refuge houses more than 600 tropical birds that have been neglected, abandoned, or abused. Those that are not suited for adoption live at the sanctuary for the remainder of their lives, on a 9-acre site known as Parrot Paradise Park. The park boasts 16 outdoor flights where visitors can interact with the birds, as well as trees and blooming shrubs to enhance the habitat for both the birds and human park goers. Most of the birds reside in 23 outdoor aviaries and 200 interior cages, where volunteers provide fresh food, fruit, and water on a daily basis, in addition to working with the parrots, cleaning cages, and providing tours for the public.
Instead of exercises that rely on bulky and often single-user workout machines, Three B Fitness’s workouts revolve around functional movement including kettlebell swings, medicine-ball tosses, and body-weight exercises. These moves can be done simultaneously in groups to help keep energy high and morale up. There is one machine used during the facility’s group fitness classes—it’s the rowing machine, an apparatus that cannot be beat for increasing shoulder strength by mimicking the movements of a whitewater-rafting guide powering a raft through rapids or a bathtub with the shower running.
When most people get a new smartphone, they begin by familiarizing themselves with the operating system and downloading new apps. When Dylan McKerchie gets a new smartphone, he immediately begins disassembling it. That's because he's obsessed with knowing how things work; in his career, he has done everything from building dirt bikes to repairing electronics.
And electronics are McKerchie's true specialty—today, he operates Myphoneisbroken, a small chain of repair shops where technicians replace shattered touchscreens, broken back covers, and dead batteries in smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. Aside from repairs, McKerchie's team members also visit both residential and commercial properties to administer device tutorials and develop mobile solutions for businesses.

Nestled several miles north of Augusta National Golf Club, the 27-hole course complex at Mount Vintage Plantation Golf Club resembles golf’s most hallowed grounds in ways that extend beyond geographical proximity. Designed by Tom Jackson, the course rolls through curtains of carolina pines, speckling nearly 2,000 acres with white-sand bunkers and scenic water features that test the accuracy of every swing.
The two original nines, the Chester and the Vintage, shine with visually stunning vistas and elevation changes—on the Vintage course alone, 8 holes boast a rise or fall of 30 feet or more. Opened in 2008—eight years after its forebears—the Independent course puts water in play on all but 1 hole, testing golfers’ abilities to manage high-pressure shots or skip balls close to pins.
