A+ Michigan School of Real Estate equips students with all the skills and knowledge they'll need to pass the state's real-estate licensing exam, and it only takes 40 hours. Taken in a single week (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday–Friday) or spread across five weeks of two daytime or evening classes, the real-estate prelicense course examines every potential exam topic: property ownership, short sales, and foreclosures, to name a few.
Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.
Refine - Michigan's LipoLaser Center's noninvasive laser technology disrupts the membranes of fat cells. After lasers seek out the cells in their subcutaneous hiding spots, they get the cells to give up their water, fatty acids, and lunch money. The human body then takes care of the rest, flushing out the purged waste or burning it for energy.

Flat-screen TVs smoothly slide up from their hiding places, LED disco balls spin, and colored-light panels flash to dance beats conveyed in crystalline audio. The multisensory spectacle unfolds not behind the velvet rope of a club, but on board one of many boats tricked out by Soundwaves.Though they can make vessels flashy enough to attract schools of even the most glamorous merfolk, the staff at Soundwaves also outfits land and sea craft with more basic custom comforts, navigation tools, and security equipment. Stereos, subwoofers, amplifiers, and GPS tracking systems are sourced from brands including Sony, Mtx, and Samsung. To take on these upgrades, boats need not move from their moorings due to "mobile marine" custom installation. Techs—all of whom have at least five to seven years of professional installation experience and ongoing education tucked under their tool belts—also travel to offer free, onsite estimates for many of their services.
The Assumption Greek Festival’s weekend of carnival attractions and Greek-themed festivities douses guests in Hellenic culture and family-friendly amusements. Professional dancers in traditional Greek costumes sashay to live music on an open dance floor, pausing to teach visitors traditional dance steps and the ancient Greek word for “macarena.” Guests can browse handmade keepsakes from Greece, Venetian glass jewelry, and original oil paintings in the marketplace, or they can feast their minds on the Assumption culture room’s exhibits on Greek history and art. Meanwhile, kids can clamber up a climbing wall, zoom down a giant slide, or catch air in the bounce house before heading to the afternoons-only petting zoo to mingle with farm animals and feral shag carpets. Detroit Tigers mascot, Paws, will also make an appearance from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 20.
