AAI Neptune Divers' instructors teach students of all levels various scuba-diving techniques, whether they want to become an instructor themselves, or simply want to obtain their diving certification. Open-water scuba-certification classes help the latter, giving students all the skills they need to travel to a submerged shipwreck or teach English to underprivileged merchildren. Rescue-diver classes explain how to rescue a fellow diver in the water, and they pair with CPR- and first-aid-certification courses. When they aren't teaching, the instructors lead dive trips out to Catalina.

By day, San Diego, Las Vegas, and Hollywood are bustling, cosmopolitan tourist destinations. But at night, when the sky grows dim, the guides of Haunted City Tours set out in search of the towns' ghostly denizens. These cities have as sordid a history as any, filled with corrupt politicians and gun-slinging outlaws alike. In San Diego, tour-goers visit the Gaslamp District's first funeral parlor, and a haunted brothel once owned by Wyatt Earp. On the Las Vegas strip, hotels house the spirits of people killed in grizzly murders, including the infamous "Motel of Death." And in Hollywood, cemeteries and notorious mansions contain as much tragedy as some of cinema's darkest films. Haunted City Tours whisks guests to all of these eerie places, during guided tours that include historical tidbits alongside tales of paranormal happenings.
Threading is an ancient technique for shaping eyebrows that is natural, safe, organic, and effective. Instead of slathering on harsh hair-removal creams loaded with chemicals and nickels or hot wax that can burn and abrade sensitive face skin, let the friendly eyebrow and upper-lip artists at Diva Beauty safely craft elegant arches and smooth mouths that will frame, define, and brighten a whole face. The results don't invite bumps or irritation, and a threaded mug is also less likely to experience local swelling or redness. The treatment frames, defines, and brightens the entire face until it shines like a lighthouse made out of glow sticks.
