It's high speed ahead for Sensoria


HIGH SPEED AHEAD
HIGH SPEED AHEAD
Seven years ago, the folks at Sensoria were focused on creating wireless systems that would allow automobile repair shops to diagnose engine problems of cars driving by.

That idea never panned out, and Sensoria ended up building networks for the military so that soldiers could easily communicate with one another.

New home audio leader is driven, Directed


THE AUDIENCE IS LISTENING
THE AUDIENCE IS LISTENING
In a faux home-theater room at Directed Electronics, Jim Minarik fiddles with the remote control to call up an Eagles concert on a flat-screen television.

The chief executive of Directed - a Vista, Calif., company whose roots are in car alarms - Minarik points to two speakers in the ceiling, two thin tower speakers next to the TV and a cube-shaped woofer underneath. As the band breaks into "Hotel California," he cranks up the volume so each bass note seems to vibrate the sofa.

The demonstration highlights Directed Electronics' aim to make noise in the home theater market.

Founded in 1982 by U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Vista, Directed spent more than a decade primarily as a car alarm maker. But over the past five years, the company has diversified into in-car video, car audio, satellite radios and home audio.

Travelers in need have somewhere to turn to


TRAVELER’S AID
TRAVELER’S AID
There was a time in the 1940s when a Georgia mother could put her child unescorted on a train to visit relatives in Ohio. And, through the kindness of strangers, that child would be met and chaperoned at every stop along the way.

Those strangers were the staff and volunteers of Travelers Aid International serving the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and Australia.
"We were very big in train stations back in the '20s through till after World War II," commented Raymond M. Flynt, president of the organization. "But the nature of travel has changed, and now airlines have replaced them as the principal mode. So we have offices at quite a few airport locations."

Superstition: There's so much to be afraid of


SUPERSTITIONS
SUPERSTITIONS
Is Friday the 13th an unlucky day for you? Do you step over cracks? Do you believe garlic protects you from evil spirits and vampires?

From chain letters to salt, most of us are superstitious about something. But why?

"Superstitions are learned through conditioning," said Robert Devies, a psychologist with Psychological and Family Consultants in Jackson Township, Ohio. "Once you get something into a kid's head, it stays there."

One way superstitions evolve, he said, is by things happening that are paired in time, such as walking under a ladder and getting splattered with paint; ergo, walking under a ladder is bad luck.
