Run by Stanford University's coaches' education trainer Mike Legarza and boasting a camper return rate of 90%, Legarza Basketball Camp develops young dribblers in a structured environment of positive support and fundamental basketball instruction, valuing hard work and effort. Morning camps focus on shooting and ball handling, as orb-bouncers will learn the basics of scoring and protecting the basketball. Players will be divided into teams for the week and play one game per day with a tournament at the end of the week. Afternoon camps concentrate on gameplay, as youngsters will be introduced to gamesmanship and strategy, such as when to feed the ball to the 7-footer in the post and when to feed the ball to the siberian tiger spotting up for a three-pointer.

Cosmopolitan Catering was born out of dissatisfaction about the state of corporate catering. The companies in control at the time were victims of their own success—as they got bigger, they became less adaptable, less aware of their customers, and less able to innovate. In response, a team of senior managers from these multinational corporations left their jobs and started their own company, which focused on responsiveness and proactivity while bringing restaurant-quality food to office environments. With that, Cosmopolitan Catering began. Sporting a generous who's who of Silicon Valley clients, they consult on corporate-café creation, schedule and plan decor for social events and banquets, and plan menus of gourmet cuisine replete with complimentary tastings and a personal hors d'oeuvres whisperer.
Outfitted with spas and treadmills, Pooch Hotels are nearly the same as human accommodations, with one key difference: your dog might get a tummy-rub with their turndown service. These venues were all designed by dog-lovers whose main priority was canine comfort, regardless of the length of each guest's stay.
Dogs on daycare visits, for example, are sorted by size and temperament before entering one of multiple play areas. Monitored by human "Pack Leaders," they socialize amidst toys, treats, and wading pools at select locations, or run outside if the weather and facilities permit. Those who have booked a room for the night can relax in a private suite, outfitted with a glass door rather than bars. These range from standard to presidential and even palace suites?rooms outfitted with luxury bedding and flat-screen televisions tuned to dog-friendly programming. Customers might also schedule a spa appointment for their pooch, choosing from services such as baths, "pawdicures," and even facials.
The hotels pursue peace of mind for owners as actively as they pamper their dogs. Certain locations have installed web cameras in the play areas and suites, enabling people to check in on their pets and guilt them about the time they napped instead of writing a postcard. Staff remain on-hand at all times to welcome newcomers and care for already-snoozing pups.
At Sunnyvale Hypnosis Center, certified consulting hypnotist David Allen strives to liberate patients from self-limiting thoughts and unhealthy habits by bringing the conscious and subconscious mind back into balance. In specialty weight-loss sessions, David combines his certifications from the National Guild of Hypnotists and the Society of Applied Hypnosis with training from virtual gastric-band creator Sheila Granger to help clients obey their bodies' fullness signals and eat smaller portions. Allen also aims to counteract the negative subconscious influences that damage confidence, make it difficult to quit smoking, or cause a person to unwittingly draw mustaches on the covers of library books, and⎯with a doctor's referral⎯may address medical conditions such as fibromyalgia or chronic pain.
