Hands play an essential part in interpersonal communication. But, if hands themselves could talk, they might request a little time off. At Growing Hands Salon & Spa, lead stylist and nail technician Maureen schedules these mini-vacations for hands. During manicures, her technicians splash nails with the vibrant colors of OPI and China Glaze or deliver long-lasting coverage with hardy Shellac polish. Aided by Affirm Keracare and Moroccanoil products, stylists also care for that other kind of keratin with haircuts and treatments designed to leave manes stronger, longer, and healthier. The team also augments 'dos the old-fashioned way, prepping clients for proms, weddings, and special occasions with updos and extensions. No matter what pampering services clients choose, they can extend its effects at home with the help of the salon's boutique's-worth of pro-grade products.
Every child learns differently and has their own unique set of challenges. For this reason, JFK Tutoring, Inc. maintains a network of more than 4,000 tutors—all of whom have completed a criminal and educational background check—and has parents interview potential candidates until they find one they feel will be the best match for their child. Upon choosing a tutor, parents can then arrange contracts by the hour, week, or month, whichever is most convenient for them. Annual memberships include regular progress reports for both parents and teachers and complimentary biannual math and reading assessments to gauge progress.
Each tutoring session can be scheduled at JFK's learning facility or onsite at the child's home, school, or other public place such as a library, church, or community center. Tutors use JFK's own nationally recognized lesson plans, which have shown to improve test scores of 97% of students after eight weeks. There are specialized courses for SAT prep, as well as SES programs for low-income students at designated Title I schools. To keep their skills sharp, students can also use online exercises to practice on their own time or when their increased capabilities have allowed them to wander into a fourth dimension.
With cell-phone oases spread across the continental US, Cricket Wireless keeps people in touch without shackling customers to burdensome contracts. Linked with the company?s own 3G network, handsets from Samsung or Android and BlackBerry smartphones allow customers to explore the internet at high speeds from the comfort of their own phones. The stores also carry accessories that expand each phone?s functionality, from speakers that add extra thump to MP3s to memory cards with enough space to hold photos, music, and live recordings of last night?s dreams.

The doctors at Diet & Weight Loss Centers tap into their nutrition and weight-loss training to build customized weight-loss programs for each patient centered on low-calorie, carefully monitored diets.

They'll also meet with clients on a regular basis to discuss how to break habits that might be interfering with weight-loss goals or how to tactfully break up with pairs of pants that are now too large.
