Healthy homes require occasional checkups; the technicians from ResCom Services keep homes in peak condition by performing basic maintenance for a variety of systems. In addition to meticulously cleaning household appliances and ensuring that everything from the motor and the wiring to the coils and the piping are operational, the team also cares for virtually every component of a house's ventilation network. Techs sanitize HVAC blower motor cleaning with a system analysis and scour the insides of ducts and vents, helping dislodge dust bunnies as well as inconveniently placed temporary tattoos.
At La Casa Spa, the signature facial consists of multiple parts?cleansing exfoliation, extractions as needed, and a face and neck massage. The facials, meanwhile, incorporate products that amp up the skin's moisture barrier, keeping complexions vibrant through the colder months or too much time spent sitting in directly front of the air conditioner. The spa complements their facials with other services, too, from relaxing massages to eyelash extensions that add mascara-free drama to lashlines.
In 1938, "The Long Island Expressway"—a vicious hurricane—plowed through John Hoenig's property in Thompson, Connecticut. His farm was destroyed, but when he decided to rebuild, he didn't rebuild the farm. Instead, he began clearing his land for the area's first 5/8-mile, high-banked racetrack. As soon as it opened, it was heralded as "the Indianapolis of the East." It was a destination for racecar drivers across the country.
In the more than 70 years since then, the track has blossomed into Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park. Today, it's one of the country's oldest tracks, besides that one high-banked crop circle from 1910. It plays host to three iconic racing events, including the World Series of Speedway Racing, and its modernized 5/8-mile oval now shares its space with a 1.7-mile road course. Even more exciting, neither track is just for pros. Civilians can try out the speedster lifestyle during driving school, or as part of the Driver's Club, which offers 30 days of members-only access to the track each year.
Red and orange splotches undulate across the surface of a canvas, sprawling across the sea of deep blue hues and ridges of rainbow colors that rise from the frame. This isn't a description of a striking modern painting but of a photograph of a soft drink. The photograph, taken with a powerful photomicroscope, magnifies the fluid beyond recognition, capturing its starkly beautiful microscopic crystal structures. Tropical fruit, beer, coffee, and pharmaceutical products all get similar treatments in Unleashed Visions' series of abstract and undoctored prints. Each visual exploration yields equally beautiful results, with the crystals, colors, and tiny Sasquatches appearing exactly as they do under a microscope.
