Summer program for 15 yr old NYC?

Can you recommend a summer program, August - Sept, for a bright 15 year old girl living in Queens, NYC? My niece is very smart, loves dance and theater and wants to excel academically. She's starting to make choices that aren't ideal, and (unrelated) do somewhat poorly in Math. I would love to find a program in Queens, or NYC for the month of August that can help her with school, inspire her and encourage her in the right direction. Help?!

Do weight training supplements do anything -- good or bad?

I'm looking to shake up my workouts, shed the excess poundage, and get some more definition -- basically, I'm bored, not making much headway, and would like to get over the hump to better health/muscle shape. Since it's hard to tell the difference between the shills and the real online reviews, advice, etc., I need some Mefite first-hand experience with hydroxycut or similar supplements. [more inside]

Good information for a new salesman?

My family owns a small business. We manufacture boxes, which we sell to other industrial clients. We've hired a salesman, but he has no sales experience. (We're okay with that.) We're teaching him about boxes, but we'd like to get him some sort of training in sales. We don't have traditional expectations (we think of the job more as "customer relations"), and aren't going to demand that he meet quotas, but we'd like him to have grounding in the basics. Can you recommend some good books on sales? How about training seminars in the Portland (Oregon) area? Any web sites he should read? Info on how to approach cold calls would be especially helpful. (So far we're just going with the "baptism of fire" approach, which has its pros and cons.)

May the road Powerise with you.

So, I'm taking up powerbocking. As an athletic 31yo male (obsessive biker, reasonable runner, maintenance lifter) with a good sense of balance, how would you current users rate the learning curve? Assuming I put in one or two nights a week over the next six months, might I learn enough to get fluent (if not a little flashy) in time for a certain outdoor event in August? Thoughts, anecdotes, tips, and the like are welcome. (Bonus points to Angelenos who can tell me about nice indoor padded spaces where I can go to practice...)
