Liberty Tax Service's armada of certified public accountants swoops in to rescue taxpayers from the onslaught of numbers, paperwork, and quadratic equations that overwhelms during tax season. Beyond computerized tax preparation and electronic filing during the months preceding April 15, clients can count on the company's expertise during an audit, through a correspondence with the IRS or state agencies, or while finding the best games living inside their graphic calculators. Liberty Tax Service also benefits community members outside of the office by sponsoring Relay for Life, a race benefitting the American Cancer Society, and by collecting unwanted cell phones and sending them to soldiers overseas.
The grappling fighting style known as jujitsu first came to Brazil in 1914 stored in the hands and mind of Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese immigrant and master of the art. He only stayed a year, but it was enough time to plant the seeds for a new jujitsu academy in Brazil. One of the first students at that academy was Hélio Gracie.
Hélio absorbed the fighting style quickly, adapting many of the techniques to suit his small frame. He discovered methods of leverage that allowed him to execute joint locks, choke holds, and takedowns on much larger opponents, forming the core of his new Gracie jujitsu method. Ultimately, Hélio's son Royce brought the fighting style to America, famously winning UFC 1, 2, and 4 by defeating opponents many times his own size. Suddenly, Americans lined up to learn this newly unveiled Brazilian fighting style, demonstrating their eagerness by folding themselves inside a box and shipping themselves south.
Relson Gracie, Hélio's second oldest son, chose to be an ambassador of his family's fighting style. He was already teaching abroad when his little brother Royce skyrocketed Brazilian jujitsu to popularity. He founded his first school under the name Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Hawaii, and as the art became popular, he opened new branches of his academy all across the United States. Today, he visits more than 40 academies and associations, sharing his knowledge with thousands of students. In his absence, he leaves instructors whom he personally trained to oversee the education of aspiring fighters.

Nature Girl's herbalists draw from dozens of herbs and a handmade, organic liquid to create fresh and custom blends that brim with bodily benefits. The over-sized four-ounce infusions ($39.99) contain meticulously blended extracts that distill the curative powers of plant matter into a salutary concoction. The Chill Out remedy harnesses linden flower and chamomile to relieve stress, and the Belly Boost remedy packs a wallop of ginger root, peppermint, and angelica root to erase digestive regrets after pizza-wrapped hot dog binges. Memory Lane is packed with gingko, gotu kola, kava kava, and other clarity and focus promoting ingredients, while Wonder Woman is formulated with schizandra berries, dong quai, black cohosh, motherwort and wild yam as a tonic for peri and menopausal women that is safe for long term use. The remedy brewers infuse each selection with a choice of alcohol, sweet vegetable glycerine, or an apple cider vinegar base densely populated with nutrients. Because each remedy is fresh and custom-blended, Nature Girl requires a two-bottle minimum order, allowing Groupon holders to mix or match their pair of choices.
