Lawn Doctor's roots lead back to the mid 1960s, when friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano took on the endeavor of reviving uncared-for lawns in their hometown of Matawan, New Jersey. Their local business has since blossomed into a national franchise with more than 400 locations across the United States, each adhering to the mission of enhancing lawns' allure with time-tested techniques, dedicated customer service, and dabs of foundation makeup.

Before Lawn Doctor's assiduous staffers unleash expertise on swards, they arrive at the client's home for a complimentary consultation to gauge each lawn's specific needs. Grass gurus can thicken turf with their patented Turf Tamer power seeder and foster healthy growth for grass, trees, and shrubs with fertilizer. Uninvited lawn assailants?such as grubs, ants, and grazing neighbors?shudder at the sight of Lawn Doctor's pest-control experts. The company also helps to preserve Mother Nature's receding hairline with organic lawn treatments and natural, eco-friendly products.

The movers from Twins Moving and Storage don't just load up trucks and take off—they stick with customers through every step of their move. First, they arrive at the home and take inventory of all moveables. Then, they'll take apart easily disassembled furniture and wrap the parts in padded blankets. Finally, they fill up the truck with those and all other items—adhering strictly to Department of Transportation standards—and begin the trek to the new abode. And that's just for a local move.

When clients are relocating long distance or internationally, Twins Moving and Storage takes even more care to transport items safely. For long distance moves, they'll bring a truck large enough to get all possessions in one load, and then convey it to a climate-controlled space near the new address until move-in day. Meanwhile, for a trans-ocean move, they'll ship belongings via ocean liner or airplane—even automobiles since they probably couldn't swim the whole way. What's more, the movers can also remove junk and store items even if a move isn't in the near future.

Whether you're resting in a mountain cabin, traveling through a city, or being vented out an airlock into outer space, dust is all around you. Microscopic particles—usually a combination of soil, pollen, skin cells, and minerals—can pile up quickly indoors. The problem is exacerbated by tiny creatures called dust mites, which gather in groups of 100 to 500 per gram of dust to devour flakes of human skin while multiplying in number, excreting waste, and probably chittering away. No matter where you are on Earth, a mote of dust is presently traveling straight toward your eye, thanks to the persistent creation of dust in almost any climate humans inhabit.

Even beyond our planet, dust is ubiquitous: astronomers face the universe's untidiness every time they peer through a telescope and find formations of cosmic dust, which absorb the visible light around them. Although it comes from exploding stars rather than flaky humans, space dust isn't so different from the domestic variety: a 2007 paper published in IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science explored the similarities between the formation of dust bunnies under beds and the coagulation of space dust into planets.
