While moonlighting as a slick catering company, Immaculate Cuisine provides nutritious, delectable meals to enjoy within the comfort of a home or undersea laboratory. On-the-go eaters desiring at-home dining can simply peruse the monthly meal-order form and select which week they'll be eating food. The five shining, eager meals will arrive prepackaged in microwavable containers and freshly starched pinafores, ready to be popped in the fridge or freezer for later or, ideally, consumed in a single sitting in preparation for hibernating during July. Menus include diverse fare ranging from upscale comfort food to delicious ethnic cuisine. One upcoming line-up features a crab-cake sandwich on a sweet-potato roll with sweet-potato fries; shrimp and creamy herb grits with tomato and cucumber salad; honey chicken and waffles; Asian pesto soba noodles with tofu, vegetables, and a side salad; and roasted lemon chicken with yellow rice and roasted broccoli.

Fantasy Fitness LLC’s classes for women fuse sexy and exotic movements with a fitness regimen that tightens and tones muscles throughout the body. It’s a system that elicits an energetic, positive vibe and bolsters self-confidence as participants shimmy down poles, dance around chairs in high heels, or gyrate hips to Latin beats. The studio's list of 10 classes also includes a mommy-and-me dance class, where moms can burn calories while the little ones learns dance steps and the importance of exercise.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers 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 a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-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. Camps and 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.
It's not a magic trick—at least not in the way TV and movies have portrayed it for years. But for certified hypnotist Maureen V. Meehan, the mind is surprisingly capable of pulling off all-manner of physiological and psychological magic once its in a deep state of relaxation. It's at that time when she can help clients stop smoking, lose weight, or sleep better—and that's just the start of the habits, phobias, and issues she helps clients overcome.
After easing clients into a state of hypnosis—something she says the mind does on its own at least twice a day—she begins to help her clients discover their motivations and the triggers for unwanted behaviors. Together, and usually over the course of about five sessions, she and her clients overcome the obstacles standing in the way of changing those behaviors. As a licensed health care professional, her only goal is to enhance well-being. To ensure that her clients receive only the best care, she re-certifies annually through The National Guild of Hypnotists.
