Once they learn how to speak Chinese, individuals possess a valuable career and life skill, easily surmounting a language barrier that could otherwise separate them from a billion people. Adam, the founder of Global Minds Mandarin Preschool & Language Academy, knows this better than anyone, having spent almost seven years teaching English in Asia and Africa. At his preschool and academy, he and his instructors teach Mandarin Chinese to preschoolers and K–12 kids using role play, hand gestures, and body language. For older kids, instruction also includes writing in Chinese characters.

Scottsdale Scuba owner Rick Owens believes that no one's too busy to learn how to dive?with ultra-flexible class scheduling, he makes sure of it, having once gone as far as to hold classes at 2:30 a.m. to accommodate one group. Owens works with two other veteran divemasters to make sure students can get in the water whenever they have the time. All together, his team of teachers boasts about 100 years of combined experience, meaning they can embarrass away most sharks by threatening to reveal their baby photos.
The shop itself has been open since 1991, during which time instructors have kept adapting their teaching style to their students' needs. Alums are even invited to stop by dive sessions at Lake Pleasant for free refreshers on diving skills and new equipment.
Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy
The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, an international preservation organization based in Chicago, was founded in 1989 to preserve the masterpieces of the greatest architectural pioneer of the 20th century. Frank Lloyd Wright developed a truly American style of architecture known as the Prairie School, creating what he called "architecture for democracy." His brilliant designs redefined the concept of space so that people could live and grow in organic environments, connecting physically and spiritually to the natural world without having to wrestle a cougar to prove their worth.
The Conservancy's mission is to preserve and maintain the original splendor of Frank Lloyd Wright's remaining structures, which, when peered at through Wright's signature stained-glass windows, shed light into the architecture of a bygone era that has influenced modern American design. Since its inception, the Conservancy has worked with more than 150 FLW structures and has organized the nomination of 11 Wright structures and log cabins built from pretzel sticks to become immortalized as UNESCO World Heritage sites. The Conservancy is able to circulate knowledge of the nation's vibrant architectural heritage and the importance of conservation through guided tours of famous Wright buildings, an annual conference, and by publishing SaveWright, a biannual magazine, and eBytes, an electronic newsletter.
