In an interview with NPR Sergeant Derek Pacifico didn?t have any trouble listing common inaccuracies on TV cop shows. He pointed out that the officers never touch the crime scene, nor do the suspects often invoke the right to remain silent. The sergeant should know?as a 22-year vet of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, he?s worked on nearly 200 homicide investigations.

To help writers get their facts straight, Derek created Crime Writers Consultations. At his two-day Writers' Homicide School, adapted from curricula for actual homicide detectives, Derek covers everything from accurate interrogation techniques to authentic police dialogue. Derek also provides more individual assistance, consulting novelists and screenwriters over the phone to help them develop their fictions realistically. He even stops by TV and film sets to assist with particular scenes and to make sure the TV sheriffs' badge props are shiny enough.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.

Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

The pilot and passengers soar noiselessly over the Tennessee countryside—casting their shadow on hills, ridges, and along the banks of the Hiwassee River. At heights of several thousand feet, the CFIG-certified pilot-instructors at Chilhowee Gliderport let passengers experience a motor-less, silent journey via natural thermals, ridge-lift currents, and winds from political speeches that occur year-round. FAA-certified pilots at the helm of Pawnee tow planes pull gliders to the desired height, where pilots introduce passengers to bird's-eye views. The gliderport also holds seasonal events such as fall-color flights and summer flight camps.
