1019 Cafe's vittle wizards fill their lunch and dinner menus with a selection of delectable dishes ranging from pasta and hamburgers to lobster tails and filet mignon. Noontime noshers can split starters such as garlic-and-oil steamed clams ($10) before wrapping hands around a marinated-steak sandwich slathered in melted mozzarella and flanked by french fries ($13). During dinner, majestic meal toppings hold court over a kingdom of sumptuous dishes, commanding an almond-crusted flounder to bow before a sweet mango salsa ($19), or a juicy 14-ounce filet mignon to dance under a drizzle of decadent mushroom-merlot sauce ($30). A low-carb menu keeps things lighter than a feather-filled balloon, and a kids’ menu satisfies the most petite of patrons.
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.
For Tim Griffin, flying has always been a way of life. He's the third in a line of pilots within his family that, together, has more than 75 years of experience in the air. But Tim also realizes that being airborne doesn't feel natural to everyone, and that's why he founded FlyHome, LLC. Here he and fellow pilots work to ease flying phobias. To that end, pilots discuss the intricacies of flight with their clients during fear-of-flying classes, explaining how they avoid turbulence in the air, what they did to met their professional requirements, and how they subsist for hours on a single bag of salted peanuts. Sometimes they even take clients on tours of aircraft and air traffic control centers.
