The technicians at Sano Ageless Skin Care & Wellness Center specialize in anti-aging services, infusing skin with vitamins to banish wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. During the signature antioxidant treatment, technicians refresh facescapes, purifying them with an ozone steam treatment before sloughing off dead skin cells and ingrown feathers. Pores then get their daily dose of vitamins with a vitamin C–enriched quartz mask. The treatment commences with a layer of advanced skin-hydration complex to infuse skin with moisture and an eye treatment to remove pesky crow footprints.
The professional cleaning crew at Ramos Quality Cleaning Services, LLC, roams Montgomery and Frederick Counties, tidying the innards of houses, apartments, and offices. The detail-oriented crew cleans from baseboard to bats asleep on the ceiling fan, dusting, organizing, and sanitizing surfaces all the while. All work is inspected after the cleaning to ensure a meticulous job.
High's Chimney Service president Mike Pinto captains a roster of certified chimney sweeps that earned their chops from the Chimney Safety Institute of America and National Fireplace Institute. Before the chimney sweeping commences, a duo of technicians places drop cloths over carpets, furniture, and napping grandparents to protect against meandering debris, as industrial vacuums stand on deck to whisk away dust. The cleaning team then ventures onto the roof to thoroughly remove buildup from the chimneys' crowns, caps, and mortar joints. Regular chimney cleaning purges brick-laid smoke vessels of flammable debris and improves flue ventilation, which can protect against carbon-monoxide poisoning. Chimney rods and a closed-circuit camera help the diligent staffers make sure the chimneys' newly pristine insides can efficiently heat homes, emit cleaner smoke, and play nice with rooster compasses.
With 30 years of experience and a trusty calculator tucked into his belt, certified public accountant Stuart Fishkin deftly balances books to earn robust returns and keep the IRS safely at bay. As soon as clients deliver their packages of befuddling documents to Mr. Fishkin's offices, he sets to work sussing, sorting, and sculpting tiny paper houses to impress even the most discriminating collectors. An initial 30-minute meeting provides a venue for clients to ask questions and seek tax clarification while Mr. Fishkin clearly points out the papers necessary for filing. The final kaleidoscope of financial figures makes its way to the IRS via paper or electronic filing (an additional $15 fee) no later than April 16, the country's official Tax Day and unofficial Hug an Accountant Day.
It's a big leap from the bustle of an athletic field to the solitude of a darkroom, but Calumet Photographic made the transition seamlessly more than 70 years ago. From its origins as a Chicago sporting-goods store, the company evolved into a one-stop shop for cameras and darkroom equipment and eventually into an innovator of photographic technology. In the 1960s, Calumet's most brilliant minds were behind the development of the Caltar large-format-lens line and nitrogen burst film.
Today, Calumet Photographic continues to manufacture and sell professional photographic products and software across the globe, boasting more than 25 retail stores throughout the US and Europe. Their shops abound with both new and used high-quality cameras and equipment, rental gear, and knowledgeable technicians eager to help customers find the right equipment for the job. The company’s extensive online catalog enables shoppers to purchase equipment from around the world and have it shipped directly to their home, studio, or mall photo booth they’ve claimed as a studio.
