-- Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau left his mark forever on the planet and the oceans. When Cousteau and his teams embarked aboard Calypso to explore the world, no one yet knew about the effects of pollution, over-exploitation of resources and coastal development. The films of Calypso's adventures drew the public's attention to the potentially disastrous environmental consequences of human negligence. Cousteau, through his life and his work, was a major player in the environmental movement.

Image: Auto Detailing: The Professional Way (Chilton's Total Service), by James Joseph. Publisher: Chilton Book Co; First edition (September 1992)National Automotive Service Professionals Day
-- One of the best ways to get good auto repair is to look for a technician or other service professional with ASE certification. The easiest ways to find one are to look for the ASE sign on the facility or in their Yellow Pages, newspaper, or online ads. Once inside, most establishments proudly display the ASE certificates earned by their technicians in their office or waiting room. Finally, ASE-Certified Technicians often wear the ASE Blue Seal patch on the shoulder of their uniforms and are more than willing to show you their credentials.

Read: Auto Detailing: The Professional Way (Chilton's Total Service), by James Joseph
-- Detailing is the maintenance or restoration of an automobile's intended look, inside and out, using accepted techniques and materials. Joseph addresses every possible part of an automobile that needs this attention, including windows, vinyl, bumpers, wheels, chrome, cloth, body, and more. For each part, surface, or material that needs detailing Joseph provides a materials list, estimates the time required, and recommends products and services. The text is explicit and the photographs are clear, making this required reading for any responsible automobile owner.
