Environmental Systems Associates, Inc.

“Your Comfort Is Our Concern”
Carrier® Factory Authorized Dealer” • www.esaheatac.com

Most people take for granted the comfort of their central air conditioner, heat pump or furnace until something goes wrong and the unit needs to be serviced or replaced. When this happens, you need a quality heating, ventilating and air conditioning contractor who is knowledgeable, skilled and qualified to do the job.

Environmental Systems Associates, located in Columbia at 9375 Gerwig Lane, Suite J, phone (410) 381-7991, has been serving the area for more than 36 years. This is a quality contractor who complies with local and state codes and regulations, carries the proper business and Workers’ Compensation insurance and is concerned about protecting the environment. They have the skill and knowledge to not only service your equipment, but, if necessary, to design and install a new system that’s right for you. Environmental Systems Associates makes it a point to stay up to date on the newest developments in equipment, technology and design procedures in order to choose a system which will be the most efficient and reliable. They can perform a load calculation and system survey if needed.

Air conditioning systems purchased before 1985 do not include energy-saving compressor technology, and you could be paying 30% to 40% more in utility costs. They offer a home energy audit to help determine where your energy dollars are best spent. If you’re thinking of replacing your system, choose a quality contractor—choose Environmental Systems Associates. They care about your comfort.

Grant Zhang Acupuncture

Grant Zhang, OMD, Ph.D., L.Ac
Maryland Licensed Acupuncturist Since 1995
www.grantzhangacupuncture.com

Surprisingly, the most effective new development in American health care is several thousand years old. Acupuncture, a branch of Chinese medicine, is the art and science of treating disorders and relieving pain. Dr. Grant Zhang, located in Ellicott City at 5044 Dorsey Hall Drive, Suite 105, phone (410) 997-3691, specializes in herbal medicine and acupuncture.

Acupuncture is based on natural laws which describe the flow of chi in the human body. Chi, the energy or “vital life force” associated with our physiological, psychological and emotional functions, flows in a system of pathways called meridians. The free and harmonious flow of chi through the meridians is a prerequisite for good health and harmony within ourselves. Dr. Grant Zhang will develop a treatment plan specifically matched to the needs of each patient through their detailed case history, description of symptoms and how they perceive them as well as factors which have a unique significance in Chinese medicine. He treats many symptoms with herbs, available for his patients only.

Acupuncture is one of the safest medical treatments available today, causing little or no sensation to the patient. It’s used to treat many respiratory, gastrointestinal, neurological, musculoskeletal and addictive disorders including the relief of withdrawal symptoms from smoking and drug abuse. Dr. Grant Zhang’s primary concern is the patient’s well-being, and he’ll be glad to discuss proposed treatment and care prior to performing any procedure.

Katana Sushi

sushi-katana.com

As one of the area’s finest restaurants, Katana Sushi provides an exciting menu and a wonderful atmosphere in which to enjoy it. Some folks get mixed up with the terms sushi, meaning “seasoned rice,” and sashimi, meaning “sliced raw fish.”

For those who may not be familiar with sushi, Katana Sushi has kept the menu friendly by refraining from calling the different items by their traditional Japanese names. Instead, the menu features dishes like California rolls, rainbow rolls, spicy tuna rolls, eel rolls, cucumber rolls and shrimp tempura rolls among many others. Sushi can be made with a variety of raw fish such as eel, crab, octopus, yellow fin tuna, shrimp, snapper, salmon and mackerel. The sushi served in rolls at Katana Sushi are cut into six pieces. The unique taste is enhanced by wasabi, an exhilarating Japanese horseradish, and soy sauce used as dip. Gari, pickled ginger, is provided to customers to cleanse the pallet and neutralize the tastes of the different sushi. They also have a kitchen where chefs prepare delicious hot meals such as shrimp tempura and teppanyaki. The service is exceptional, and the atmosphere is delightful.

Area residents who want to try something new and exciting in cuisine should try Katana Sushi, located in Clarksville at 6343 Ten Oaks Road, phone (410) 531-9777. Visit their Web site at sushi-katana.com for more information and coupons. After the first sushi dinner, most of their customers tell their friends and return for more.

SPCA International

www.spcai.org

The mission of SPCA International is to raise awareness of the abuse of animals to a global level, to teach and foster good pet parenting practices, and to promote spay and neuter programs around the world with the goal of eradicating the need to euthanize healthy and adoptable companion animals.

SPCA International was founded in the United States in 2006. One of SPCA International’s main goals is to use their national platform to support independent shelters. The majority of local SPCAs and Humane Societies around the world are not affiliated with national organizations as most people presume. SPCA International strives to assist and encourage these independent shelters through alliance building, information networking and national and international programs.

In 2007, SPCA International launched their first major shelter initiative, Shelter of the Week. SPCA International has since supported and honored more than 19 local shelters in need. In the fall of 2007, SPCA International founded Operation Baghdad Pups. This program assists soldiers stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan who have befriended dogs and cats by providing safe transport of these military mascots out of the war zone and back to the United States. Currently, SPCA International is working to bring more than 25 animals out of the war zone to safe new homes.

Their Web site at www.spcai.org provides a global information and referral resource to animal guardians and advocates throughout the world to those who seek a shelter or wish to adopt a shelter animal. SPCA International continually works to improve the quality of life to animals all over the world through their innovative programs.

STIHL Inc.

“Porsche Engineering Group Finds STIHL BR 600 More Fuel Efficient
Than Competitors” • www.stihlusa.com

A study conducted by the Porsche Engineering Group GmbH found that the STIHL BR 600 backpack blower is up to 28% more fuel efficient than competitive models, which can provide up to $644.00 in fuel savings per unit in two seasons, depending on fuel costs and run time. The STIHL BR 600 is also the cleanest running backpack blower in its class with 73% less emissions than current Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements (based upon information reported as of December 8, 2008, on the EPA Web site).

The Porsche study tested backpack blowers at wide open throttle 85% of the time and at idle for the remaining 15%. All the units tested were the U.S. versions, the same as available in stores, and all units were set to their respective manufacturer specifications during testing.

The STIHL BR 600 led the competitors’ models in the Porsche study, ranking the highest in fuel efficiency. The STIHL BR 550, STIHL’s value-priced backpack blower, was also tested in the Porsche study and was found to be 16% more fuel efficient than the BR 600. In a separate comparison, based on specifications from each manufacturer and not associated with the Porsche study, the BR 600 also was ranked as the lightest weight model and the most powerful in air volume in its class.

To learn more about STIHL low-emission and fuel-efficient products and the results of the Porsche Engineering Group GmbH test, visit www.stihlusa.com/BR600. For more information on EPA reporting, visit www.epa.org.
