While the fraternity brethren milled about parties discussing Jack Kerouac and sipping cheap lagers, Jack Counts was busy working. In the late 60s, the entrepreneurial college student carved out a niche snapping his shutter during fraternity parties and selling prints dubbed Party Pics to members. Over time, Counts spread his business across multiple campuses, photographing graduation ceremonies and special events and processing the prints in his own lab, Candid Color Systems. With Glamour Shots, Counts’ business yet again expanded from special-events photography to include portrait shoots with an emphasis on flattering female subjects.
At each Glamour Shots shoot, a brigade of expert shutterbugs and cosmetologists gets subjects ready for their close-ups with style-enhancing makeovers and photo shoots that result in high-quality pictures and prints. After a personal consultation with the styling team, clients undergo an airbrushing treatment and hair sculpting. Depending on their package, models strike up to 30 poses, quick-changing into different outfits to capture a spectrum of looks, from professional career woman to professional career woman in a bear costume.
Clients pour over proofs immediately after their session, and a professional lab generates each print on quality Kodak paper within 10 to 12 days after the session, with touchup services available to display pristine complexions. Shots are available in a variety of product forms, including prints, calendars, photo books, and canvas wraps. To ensure that none of the photos evaporates from living memory, a slideshow presentation houses the proofs of the entire day's shoot and sets it to music or field recordings of yaks performing Beethoven.
Seven days a week, the partner laundromats hum with the whirring of high-efficiency washers and dryers. Boasting more than 30 years of business, the Chevy Chase location fields a skilled staff that erases blights from duds with 46 single, double, and triple-load washers and 28 dryers, and enables patrons to convert bills into coins with convenient onsite change machines. The laundromat purveys soap, bleach, and fabric softeners. The staff augments this shopping-while-washing experience by entertaining waiting guests with video games, complimentary WiFi, and—remarkably—a standup tanning bed, inside of which, naturally, is a comedian. Alternatively, the Suds 'N Duds location boasts advanced credit-card-operated machinery that washes loads of up to 90 pounds at a time in as little as 40 minutes and treats freshly bathed garments to a complimentary dry. The laundromats also grant customers a free dry with every wash and offer reward points, which—when saved up—can be exchanged for money to use on washing machines and drying machines.
In addition to self-service laundry, both locations offer same-day drop-off services. Their professional staff sorts, washes, and dries clothing using premium detergent and softeners before folding them into neat piles or intricate seersucker airplanes.
When Joseph Pilates first developed his fitness system, he worked with bedridden patients, removing their beds’ bedsprings and attaching those springs to the walls. In order to build their core strength, he encouraged them to push against the coils. At Align Pilates, owner Loralee Stephens carries on Pilates’s tradition with her own array of nontraditional fitness equipment. Her studio’s Pilates reformers, the modern incarnation of Pilates’s bedsprings, provide resistance for full-body toning exercises. Straps hang from the studio’s ceiling, which students use for airborne pushups, sit-ups, and stretches in TRX suspension classes, rather than just for elaborately hanging up their coats. Even during more stripped-down sessions with only a mat for equipment, Stephens and her team fulfill Pilates’s mission of strengthening cores and building long, lean muscle.

Entrust America, created by law-enforcement professionals and partnered with various police and federal agencies, implements thorough safeguards for families against the rising trend of identity theft. The company’s two-step process of redaction and privacy removes a family's vital information from public Internet databases in order to protect clients from exposing credit-card information, private residence information, and secret-lair location to the public. The first step involves Entrust America completing the arduous opt-out forms required to remove private information from public forums that share, rent, and release personal factoids on the Internet. After its removal from the web, private info will be hidden in a locked cyber-safe that requires arm-wrestling a computer for access. Every family receives a crisis preparation kit, a safeguard for storing non-public information, and a one-year recovery package that implements immediate action if identity theft occurs.
