While most cleaning companies are content to leave floors clean enough to eat off of, the team from L & S Maid Service strives to leave them safe to eat off of as well. These cleaners wipe away dust with microfiber cloths, polish surfaces with Green Seal?certified products, and use HEPA-filter vacuums to clean up after the kids leave a trail of breadcrumbs to remember how to get to the kitchen. They use green cleaning techniques not only during new baby cleaning services, but also during regular house and commercial cleaning sessions. In addition, L & S Maid Service's staff can clean carpets and straighten up messes after construction projects or parties.
After several of his friends lost their jobs in the financial-services industry, Chris Carey saw how vulnerable even workers toward the top of the corporate ladder can be. He established Blue Chip Career to help support these employees, coordinating more than 150 mentors sourced from across the fields of investing, accounting, consulting, and start-ups to lead clients through the job-search process. Through services including resumé reviews and mock interviews, mentors and job searchers work in tandem to develop strategies for salary negotiation, getting a promotion, and tackling weaknesses such as poor time management or getting sucked into long gossip sessions with the water cooler.

Spicy aromas waft in from the kitchen, foretelling the arrival of entrees that blend the culinary traditions of Japan, China, Thailand, Vietnam, and the United States. Some of these flavors meld within the dishes themselves: combining grilled steak, asparagus, and eel sauce, the Cowboy sushi roll melts away boundaries between East and West, much like a blast furnace full of old compasses. But chefs also cook traditional Asian recipes, such as a Thai curry with coconut milk or Japanese udon noodles with tempura shrimp. And they're accommodating of other diets, too. Several vegetarian dishes incorporate soy chicken substitute, whose tender texture pleased the writer of a 2009 In This Week review.
