When an outbreak of bedbugs overtook New York in 2010, residents, business owners, and members of the media alike turned to Steve Free for help. The expert exterminator had been combating pests for more than 20 years, captaining a team of highly trained technicians at The Bug Stops Here, Inc. Techs went to work immediately and still journey to more than 2,000 local homes, gardens, and workplaces each month to banish unwanted insects and rodents with their comprehensive Integrated Pest Management system. The system combines current information on the lifestyles, habits, and deep-seated insecurities of pests with the sensible use of professional control products, ensuring the most effective results with the least damage to the surrounding environment.
As former fashion photographers, Sarah Browne and Ina McConnell have eyes for texture, color, and spotting just the right pose. Just as impressive, they are able to capture these shots with or without directing their subjects. In fact, during weddings, they prefer working behind the scenes, allowing visual stories to unfold as they would with or without a camera present. When the occasion calls for it, however—it might during boudoir shoots—they deftly direct subjects into sultry poses and maneuver lighting to elicit evocative and expressive shots.

Clients ultimately aren't losing control through hypnosis—they're regaining it.

In two separate jump rooms furnished with up to four huge inflatables each, kids bound off bounce-house walls, slip down air-filled slides, and navigate energy-burning obstacle courses. When taking breaks from bouncing, they challenge each other to games of skee-ball, Dance Dance Revolution, and pinball in the game room, replete with a Wii lounge and ball blaster. Kids can invade the activity-filled fun house during open-play times or birthday parties, which include private party-room space, game tokens, and DVD slide shows of the festivities.
