Students in beginner to advanced classes at the Cultural Center for Language Studies learn to converse casually in Spanish, Portuguese, or English. Guided by an experienced and fluent teaching staff, they'll practice their chosen tongue in real-life contexts, deciphering commercials, documentaries, and the price lists of black-market piñata distributors. Opt for an intensive weekend course that teaches the rudiments of grammar in two three-hour sessions, or spread your six hours over four 1.5-hour weekday classes. Grouponers who continue courses beyond their six hours will need to buy their textbooks and stand on their head while they count to 10 in Klingon.
One of the newest lots to open outside of Newark airport, Newark Liberty Parking houses more than 1,500 self-park spaces less than a mile from the terminal. Shuttle buses—also known as land-planes—run to and from the airport every five to seven minutes, 365 days a year. Parking is based on 24-hour intervals, and long-term parking is available for extended trips. Frequent fliers may wish to take advantage of the frequent parkers program.
The color purple can symbolize royalty or nobility, and Purple Carpet Entertainment kept that in mind when choosing its striking signature textiles. It provides event rentals and services that can heighten a festive event to the level of Hollywood royalty, with custom red-carpet-style backdrops, striking theatrical lighting, DJs, emcees, and vacuum cleaners cleverly disguised as Sharon Stone’s cousin Jeremy.
The family that owns and runs Broughton Dry Cleaners draws from more than 30 years of building up experience in dry cleaning when removing soil and stains from formal- and casualwear at Broughton Dry Cleaners’ onsite cleaning plant. Within the facility, the cleaners eschew water as they restore shirts, pants, and dresses to a like-new luster, which is similar to a new-car smell but has nothing to do with strangers taking customers’ clothes for a test wear.
As classroom teachers, Helaina Altabef and Sarah Marmor noticed something curious: some students struggled to realize their academic potential, despite the fact that they were clearly bright and driven. After analyzing the problem, the instructors devised a solution. Instead of focusing on a specific subject, such as how to fit a history textbook into one's brain via the ear, they realized that some pupils benefit from a broader focus on critical thinking. This led to the creation of Pique Learning, a tutoring program that bolsters reading, independent thinking, problem-solving, and organizational skills. Over the course of a 20-week program, tutors help students ranging from late-elementary-school to early-high-school age during in-home, one-on-one sessions.
