The coaches at Westchester Skating Academy have trained internationally competitive and Olympic-level skaters. But even if skaters are just starting out, these coaches still devote significant attention to teaching them how to glide across the ice with confidence—whether it's for fun or competition. In this NHL twin rink facility, hockey players also hone their skills with lessons as well as competitive leagues. While waiting for open skate to start, skaters munch on snacks at Center Ice Grill, which saves them the trouble of collecting shavings from the rink to make snow cones.
There is a war brewing across America's patios and backyard barbecues. Mosquitoes, ticks, and all pests capable of drawing up battle plans disrupt outdoor gatherings with their bites?a nuisance that the techs at Mosquito Squad hope to eradicate.

Alternatively, they can take a natural approach that eschews chemicals for bug-repelling essential oils. However, the bug fighters aren't just focused on making outdoor events more comfortable; they also hope to quell the spread of insect-carried diseases such as West Nile virus.

Click and Improve is an online database that fixes homeowners up with licensed contractors, repairmen, and industry experts. With hundreds of services available at the click of a computer mouse, the business's online process breaks down the exact details—and the exact price—of each service before sending a home-improvement specialist to the site. Customers use a drop-down menu to choose the service they need completed, and after filling out a thorough questionnaire and birthday wish list, they can attach videos and photos to their web account to more accurately convey repair needs. Click and Improve then rounds up competitive bids or offers pre-priced services, and upon the job's completion, homeowners relay their feedback through the company's website.
