Reports +Matthew Kauffman
The independent short film "Slicing Beauty" is a fairly typical bikini-and-blood slasher flick, featuring gratuitous nudity, sexually charged dialogue and a lead actress who "bares all as a kinky serial killer who loves to give her victims a satisfying but often morbid peep show."

Dr. Cash has a prescription for happiness in the capitol city this holiday weekend – a little extra money. The mysterious M.D. says he will be giving away cash in Hartford all weekend. The catch? You have to be the first to find him.

Though at times the classes have been really good, we generally found the curriculum inconsistent between teachers and as parents think our son's confidence has been harmed, rather than improved. Brian and Dave have been great on Saturday mornings. But my wife, son and I have left Wednesday classes with Joe with tears and frustration. My son turns six on in a couple months and simply cannot do what is expected of him and cannot keep up with eight and nine year old white belts. We enrolled him knowing he lacked not only focus and confidence, but is behind his5-year-old peers with balance and coordination. While Mr. Brian breaks down the forms and works on each part, Mr. Joe ends each class with the expectation that students at least have a working understanding of the entire form. White belts are separated, but my son was in groups with older white belts. Anna – who has been incredible – has worked with my son one-on-one on Saturdays, but he falls woefully behind in classes lead by Mr. Joe. We understand my kid needs to show more focus at taekwondo, in school and at home. That’s why we bring him. But Mr. Joe telling him recently that his focus is why he has 20+ stripes but does not have a black stripe, simply isn’t true and was a major blow to his confidence. My son admittedly gets frustrated too easily and gives up. He was in taekwondo to work on that. Instead, it has been reinforced at Hwangs.

Really disheartened by recent changes. After about a decade of loyal patronage, we're looking for another shop. The new manager Terry is only worried about 'up selling' you services you don't need and isn't the one actually in the garage doing the work. I still love Matt -- who is still there -- but never want to deal with Terry again.

Action Windows replaced eight double hung windows in my house in April 2009.Salesman Peter Royal gave us the "Sign with us today and get this price, if you invite other companies to your house we'll charge you more..." We fell for it. We were new homeowners and I feel we were taken. 1. Every home improvement contract should have a 48-hour or more back out clause. The copy of the contract that I still have has no such provision -- nor did the company inform us of any such provision. That's illegal in CT. 2. I never saw a contractors licenses from Mr. Royal or the installers. Also illegal in CT. We paid $6-thousand for the eight windows. On installation day, the installers spoke very poor English. They got caulk on my hard wood floors. My pregnant wife had to clean it up. They left cigarette butts and the ropes from the pulls of the old windows in my front yard and hardware from the frames throughout the house. We've had two window panes crack, They have being good about coming out and fixing it at no cost. We will not be using Action Windows for the remainder of the windows in our house and do not recommend them.
