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

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 Startup CoWorking Spaces

Top 20 Startup CoWorking Spaces

We are in the age of the coworking space; a replacement to the traditional office environment. The main reason for this change is the overwhelming need to increase creativity in the workspace. The modern entrepreneur seeks opportunities to grow his network and work in a vast collaborative environment. Many of these ideas can be found in modern technology firms like Google or Facebook. Another common feature of coworking spaces is that they are often involved with throwing exciting events. These events range from book launches to hackathons. This year the buzz is all about the Fueled Collective coworking space, which is located by the corner of Prince Street and Broadway in bustling downtown New York City. Fueled (as they are colloquially known) boasts an eccentric and hip co-working space with numerous technology companies located on its premises. This swanky coworking space boasts one of the best startup networking scenes. It has access to some of the top venture-capital firms around. They offer free gourmet coffee and ice cream to residents of the collective. Fueled even has direct access to neighboring companies such as Foursquare and Thrillist, amongst others. Another impressive coworking space is AlleyNYC. Alley caters to the hackers, hustlers, and hipsters of NYC. It provides access to an incredible location on 7th avenue in the Chelsea neighborhood. It has a massive 16,000 square foot entrepreneurial hub, where teams and individuals can grow their businesses. (I participated in the PayPal hackathon that was held in the space for nearly 24 hours. I came out of the event exceedingly happy; the prizes were amazing, the food was unreal and the competition was fierce.) Here is...
