Visitors to Austin Free-Net’s computer labs can bolster typing skills, build a resume to submit to potential employers, and embark on the online-job-application process. However, in order to maintain the health of the labs’ systems, its computers run a program that wipes hard drives after each client completes a session, preventing them from saving their work. Austin Free-Net would like to equip those who complete a computer course—such as basic skills or Word basics—with a 1-gigabyte flash drive. The drive contains enough storage space for users to save numerous documents and its portability will allow users to carry their information anywhere they go.

The Zerona advanced laser treatments may help melt away inches and shape the body's often-unpredictable topography. Using the Erchonia laser scanner, this non-invasive therapy is designed to target fat cells beneath skin without the painful incisions, lengthy recovery periods, and anesthesia-induced confessions of tax evasion common in traditional liposuction. During the approximately one-hour sessions, clients rest as a trained technician guides the laser over a chosen treatment area such as the waist, hips, thighs, or arms. The liquefied fatty deposits should seep from their homes on love handles and underarm wings and may be tossed from the body's VIP room by natural detoxification bouncers.
Manhattan Elite Prep's staff of teachers and consultants carries firsthand experience navigating the complicated labyrinth of school admissions. Some were students whose high test scores and poignant essays got them into top PhD and Ivy League MBA programs. Some consultants served on admissions committees of coveted schools and know what experience, qualities, and acrobatic feats make student applications stand out. Now, this team of insiders at a firm with more than 10 years of experience pools its knowledge to help students who are serious about acing tests and placing in their top schools. They emphasize efficiency, packing as much information as they can into the time allotted, and exceeding beyond minimum requirements. Courses covering entrance tests teach students to work smarter, ruling out wrong answers and budgeting their time wisely, and essay consultants pare down applications to deliver rich content in a limited word count. Customers may complete classes online or interact in-person with their instructors as well as fellow students.
By the time a child turns 6, his or her brain has already reached 90% of its developmental potential. Froggin Learning Center's teachers use the years leading up to this deadline, helping kids fill their expanding minds with a second language instead of ideas for mud-based desserts. Not only do students absorb the second language better than adults, but the process of learning that language helps develop kids' creativity and intelligence.
Froggin's teaching methodology relies heavily on the work of two renowned child psychologists: Piaget and Gardner. They believed that a positive, stimulating environment, much like chalkboards made of candy bark, keeps children engaged and motivated. With a max of eight children per teacher, each classroom bustles with personal attention, games, music, and interpersonal activities designed to organically incorporate English or Spanish into speech.
