Fallout 4: A Settler’s Guide from the Lone Wanderer to Dovahkiin

Fallout 4: A Settler’s Guide from the Lone Wanderer to Dovahkiin

For the last few years I have been a big fan of the game studio Bethesda. They have made some incredible video games that embody the true spirit of Open World gaming. It all started with the game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim which is a truly incredible game that takes you back into a foreign Nordic realm with kings and armies, wizards and dragons and even homesteads. Yes, in this game you could build a home in the middle of a forest that neighbored a Giant camp and overlooked a river. With the lack of true sequel for console gamers to this installment by Bethesda, I turned to their Fallout series. Bethesda created Fallout to emulate what the United States would look like after a nuclear fallout. In this unfriendly apocalyptic wasteland world you need to look in the most unlikeliest of places in order to succeed. This post will act as a guide to new Fallout Players, (like me) who want to get the most out of Fallout 4. I want to point out one of my favorite new features in Fallout that this post will be addressing is settlements. Settlements in Fallout are just incredible! You get to build your own town! From scratch! Think grown up Legos, or Minecraft in full pixel glory. What’s more there are islands that can be built into full-scale metropolises. With that in mind, here are some tips, tricks and videos: First An awesome 50 Tips video by Youtuber Jug on buildings: Below I will add some answers to common questions in Fallout for new players and YOU can comment on this post...
The Dos Toros Experience

The Dos Toros Experience

For years, burritos have been a staple lunch food for me. Ever since I started college in 2010 I became attached to the thought of rice, beans, meat, veggies and cheese wrapped in thin doughy-wrap. The mix of these 5 key ingredients is part of what makes the burrito so special. It is also the experience around which we eat a burrito which brings sweet thoughts of the food to mind. I started eating Chipotle with friends while attending Hofstra University. Then it became a place to get a quick bite in NYC, along with the occasional pizza hole in wall. Chipotle still holds a place in my heart as a place where cool ideas for my future endeavors spawned. A friend of mine named Maxx had the fantastic idea of starting a Millenial Startups club while we were eating at a Chipotle, like a support group for Millenials starting their own companies. We actually tried it out! It went great at first, but that’ll be another blog post. No need to go on a longer tangent here. Back to burritos… Well, Chipotle is unique for their seasonings. They do a great  job with adding lime and cilantro to the rice, in particular the white rice mix is sublime. I like cilantro and, lime and salt together the flavor is rich and can best described as rice that has a fresh flavor to it. One mistake they make at Chipotle, which in my eyes is not totally forgivable is not making sure they have consistent salt in their food. At many Chipotle locations where I’ve had Chipotle food there...
Banana Oreo Milkshake + Bonus: Dirty Banana Cafe Allemand Drink Recipe

Banana Oreo Milkshake + Bonus: Dirty Banana Cafe Allemand Drink Recipe

One morning I was feeling like I wanted make something awesome. You know what is an awesome breakfast beverage? Milkshakes!!! I’ve also included a bonus drink recipe for those interested in a cool milkshake spinoff:  So I made a sweet banana shake: Here is the recipe: Makes 5-6 servings. Ingridients: 3 bananas ( organic and nonorganic ) 2 tsp of maple syrup 1 tsp vanilla extract 4 cups milk Optional: 1-2 scoops of Vanilla Ice cream Directions: Put all ingredients in the blender in this order: bananas, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract With the cap on the blender, blend the ingredients on the puree setting for smooth or mix setting for chunky. Pour into spare glass bottle for storage. It will brown, but flavor is enhanced if it sits for one day. — Next step get a large glass mug and add 2 scoops of your favorite Oreo and Vanilla Ice cream. For this example I used Cookies and Cream by HagenDaz. Then pour roughly 1/4 cup of milk over it. You can eyeball this measure. Mix together those ingredients until you have a milk and ice-cream Oreo piece mix. Next grab your cold banana shake from the fridge and pour roughly 3/4 cup over the top. Mix that with a spoon and there you have it! An awesome Banana Milk Oreo Shake. Add ice if you want it to be colder, or add Kahlua Liqueur, Cacao Liqueur and Amaretto to make a Cafe Allemand Drink. That recipe is below: The Dirty Banana + Cafe Allemand: A spin on two great drinks combined as one drink, the Dirty Banana drink I tried while I was visiting Jamaica and...
Morning Bike Ride

Morning Bike Ride

One morning, I woke up early, 5:30am and got back into my new daily routine. Biking. Biking every morning along the Long Beach Boardwalk. That day was slightly different because I was feeling inspired. I bike better when I’m feeling inspired. I was inspired by a meetup group that talked about blogging. The meetup group helped me to understand that blogging is more about personal experiences and life events than simply writing a news post or giving people the facts. Getting back to my blog… So that morning was different because I felt inspired to write about my biking experience. In that way I’d say it’s easy to look at this post as a fresh look at my daily morning routine. This new biking routine that I started, was meant to change how I got my daily exercise. Yet it’s opposite of a habit. Like I have a habit to look at my iPhone notifications every morning lol. ? This routine, hopefully it will become a habit. Unlike checking my iPhone in the morning, I feel like it benefits me throughout the day. This early dose of exercise makes me more energetic during the day. I end up feeling refreshed after every biking workout, it’s a great alternative to relying on something like coffee to wake me up in the morning (and I’m not a coffee drinker lol, so I kinda have to do this). The bike ride starts like this. I go to the shed, my shed is getting a bit old, just getting the bike out can be a hastle. As the bottom of the door is...
Top 20 Coding Bootcamps

Top 20 Coding Bootcamps

Today it is hard to find a recent college graduate who has not taken additional coursework outside of their college. With the increase in the demand for more technology savvy employees, students have flocked to alternative forms of learning online and offline. These options range from coding boot camps to websites like Lynda.com. However, the world of online and offline learning is shifting greatly. A new round of startups have been tackling this increased demand for alternative education platforms. One of the most progressive companies in this area is One Month led by Mattan Griffel, they were incubated by Y Combinator. One Month allows students to learn online at their own pace, but it also gives them the opportunity to do project-based learning. This setup allows the student to build something while they study, which helps to enhance their retention of material from classes. Another company targets the high school market, hackEDU allows high school students to build their own coding clubs. hackEDU provides new clubs with a baseline coding curriculum, free software tools, and community building training. Online education and school clubs that are online are the beginning of alternative education in the Web 2.0 age. Coding boot camps are the fastest growing education programs in the United States. The boot camp market will grow by 2.4 times, to an estimated 16,056 graduates in 2015, up from 6,740 in 2014. For comparison, estimates suggest that there were 48,700 undergraduate computer science graduates from accredited US universities in 2014. Below is a comprehensive list of the top 20 coding boot camps and the top 8 online coding schools. These...

Campus Pursuit: College Treasure Hunts

College Startup: College campus life is unique in that it gives students the opportunity to explore something new and altogether educational. In college, while I attended Hofstra University, there were treasure hunts that would be done by groups of Resident Assistants and Campus Life Ambassadors. These treasure hunts were fun, but unfortunately were lacking in creativity. The student Resident Assistants would simply hide a prize and announce a victor once the prize was found. Sometimes winners would not even report that they found the prize that was hidden. Campus Pursuit is changing all of this. They are putting college treasure hunts on the map in a BIG way by upping the technology used in college campus treasure hunts. They are also bringing treasure hunts to campuses that don’t have established treasure hunt programs in place for new or current students. To push the envelope even further they have made Campus Pursuit a game that anyone can enjoy on a visit to a college campus! You don’t even have to be a student! For example if I were to visit Cornell University and was not a student, I could login and select Cornell and be able to find the prize on campus. Read more on...

Alexis Ohanian’s Without Their Permission, at NYU

POSTED ON OCTOBER 29, 2013 BY NATE SUKONIK Alexis Ohanian and Steve Huffman have come a long way. They founded Reddit in 2005. Alexis wrote a book called Without Their Permission. In it he shocks and enthralls us. I hurried over from FITnyc to see Alexis speak at NYU. It was a crisp fall evening and I met some friends from Hofstra University on the way. At NYU he stirred the crowd, he stumbled with the mic as he toyed over memes and startup terminology. He kept urging us to take initiative, to learn code and to build, build, build!!! Reddit was not made in a day. Neither was WTP. “Permission-less innovation, is about creation. The world wide web is flat. We will see better art, better technology, better news and better games because of the internet.” – Alexis Ohanian @reddit co-founder @alexohanian at #NYU last night: “The Web is the world’s greatest stage & library, in one.” #WTP pic.twitter.com/FdowQXOaho At NYU Alexis spoke to us about the importance of the Web, how places like Twitter and Facebook, are only the beginning. Ideas will be born and companies will rise. Is it about raising money? Not really. Is it about making great things? Yes. Reddit raised less than $200,000 dollars. It sold for many millions, because it did something fun and exciting. How do you make something exciting? You focus on what people want. Do people always know what they want? No. Show them something they might want and make it fun. Alexis focused on the creation of aliens in the headline of reddit. This was his major differentiation...

Re3 Storyhack: A Hackathon for Storytellers

POSTED ON SEPTEMBER 8, 2013 BY NATE SUKONIK Storyhack is not your typical hackathon. Its not aimed at solely web developers or application gurus. In fact its targeted at writers, flim makers, bloggers, students, developers, artists, activists and designers. This should come as little surprise as the organizers are clearly from the creative world, example: Deroy Peraza (@deroyperaza), Co-Founder & Creative Director at Brooklyn’s graphic design studio: Hyperakt. I was fortunate to meet the other cofounder of Hyperakt, Julia Vakser Zeltser, back when I attended Hofstra University. I was aware that their studio would often be involved with interesting projects, much like this hackathon. Julia’s amazing project was called I Have PSD and you can witness it for yourself. Storyhack’s aim is get their participants to cover global issues like sustainability, education and medicine. You’re allowed to create anything that covers your groups issue. It could be an interactive exhibit, performance art, a Flash mob, a mobile app, sculpture or even a print. There is no limitation of medium for the teams’ final outputs as long as they tell amazing life changing stories. There will be more than 10 teams and at least 75 participants. Applications are due by September 10th, 2013 to participate or submit an idea. Please revisit the website for competition updates and follow the organizers on twitter. Update: The competition was held October 5th and 6th 2013 at: Parsons the New School for Design The Vera List Center 6 East 16th Street, 12th Floor New York City Some of the projects that came out of the competition can be found...

Fashion Institute of Technology Leadership Workshop

  Article from October 15, 2013 The Fashion Institute of Technology Leadership Workshop was a three day and two-night workshop that focused on student’s leadership communication skills. On Friday at 1:30 pm an unwary group of 50 students boarded the chartered bus to the IBM Learning Center in Armonk, New York. The bus trip was short, it took less than one hour to escape the hustle and bustle of New York City and to replace it with the hushed tranquility of Upstate New York. On the trip to the IBM Learning Center, I spoke to Christin, who is a student in the same major as me. We talked about how transferring colleges had benefited both of us. The IBM Learning Center is huge. It resembles a private liberal arts college campus. It contains a number of major guest room halls, we stayed in Maple where single bedrooms were assigned to each of us. We also had full access to the main hall where meals were all inclusive. The campus is rich and forest like, it has a number of large grassy hills (the vast majority of girls on the trip went to chill on the hills). The grounds have lots of animals too. Rabbits and deer are common. We did not have any issues with mosquitoes, as there were none. The activities consisted of typical college icebreaker activities like moving a hula hoop down a circle of college students via linked arms. The activities became progressively more intensive.In teams of 8, we began creating a country, we were told to make a country flag, shirts and song. Another one...
