To my Massachusetts friends:
 
Avengers . . . I mean networks, assemble.

I am putting this out there in an effort to engage my networks to help out a friend. She is currently looking for smoke-free housing in Massachusetts, near Needham or Wellesley or Weston line, or Waban/Newton Centre area.

She is currently in an apartment in elderly/disabled housing that was supposed to go smoke free, but hasn't and is surrounded on all sides by heavy smokers. It's taking a huge toll on her heath and well being and has landed her in the ER multiple times over the past years.

She has a housing voucher and can use it for a 1BR apartment/room in a house and can spend $1371 with utilities.

I can personally vouch for her integrity, honesty, and kindness.

If you know of any safe housing options available in her target areas, won't you please contact me or reply on this post? Also, I'd really appreciate if you would share this with your networks.

Thank you!

Virtual reality is the future of space exploration! Help make that future happen - contribute to the campaign to launch a 3D, 360 degree VR camera to the International Space Station; just a $30 pledge to get a 2 hour view of the Earth from space, and a $50 pledge to get a cardboard VR viewer and all content produced by SpaceVR, forever!
Giving everyone the opportunity to explore space by putting a virtual reality camera on the International Space Station!

I recently gave this talk in Germany at the Chaos Communication Camp: "How To Become A Space Hacker". I'm now creating a space technology accelerator program here in New York City (Empire Space Labs - http://empirespace.nyc). You too can hack space, watch and learn how!!

It's cool to remix footage into a useful analysis with a map and explanations, but it does a disservice to culture to copyright video that is freely in the public domain. It would be better for all if the remix was also released under a CC-BY-SA license instead of the standard YouTube license.

I've done this exact thing. I love shooting one person in a conversation and hearing the other person say "must have been the wind" after a few moments of looking around.

Awesome map - uses Lovecraft's own original source material too. Love it!
 
Here is the low resolution version of my current Arkham 1950 Map, which I mentioned to several people. Its adapting early 20. Century streetmaps commonly found in the United States and incorporated details from many sources and a lot of interpretations from myself, how the city would continue to grow with some time passing.

Its 48x34 inches

I am thankful for any feedback and critic.
Regards,
Vandel

Wait, was it 3 damage on the first roll for matching a 3, or is it the sum of Veronica's roll that's the total damage - get 4 for matching 3?

Shout out to all my friends far and wide - you really, really should consider coming to New York City for the weekend of April 10th-12th this year, and bring the kids with you! We are hosting the NASA International Space Apps Challenge for the 4th year in a row, and the event is growing to include a 200+ person hackathon, a weekend long "space hacker science & tech fair", and a livestream broadcast on TV and online with speakers, astronauts, NASA officials, and all kinds of amazing programming. On top of that, for people taking part in our problem solving hackathon, we are offering free day care.

That's right, you heard me: FREE DAY CARE. And the hackathon isn't just for techies and isn't all about coding apps - Space Apps is for EVERYONE: artists, musicians, designers, authors, educators, scientists, students, mechanics, nurses, businesspeople... past challenges have included things like creating educational units that teach the most commonly misunderstood facts about space, or creating video explaining "why we go to space".

Free food all weekend and gifts for participating, and amazing incredible science & tech all around. Please come!!

For more details, check out: http://www.spaceappsnyc.com/  and follow our Twitter account @SpaceAppsNyc for updates (many are forthcoming! And please Share this post!!)

The location is 95% likely to be Times Square, and your best bet for accommodations would be Long Island City, Queens (taking the 7 train in to midtown Manhattan)

Beaner Bar is an excellent coffee shop, with a wide variety of specialty drinks and really high quality coffee from Counter Culture roasters; the terrific Hologram roast for their espresso, and a rotating selection of beans and roasts for their drip and iced coffee. Their prices are competitive with every other coffee shop in the area, and they have 8 / 12 / 16 ounce sizes available. It's worth noting that ALL of their espresso drinks have double shots of espresso (Americano, Cappuccino, everything), and ordering extra espresso gets you a third shot. Hand ground and uniquely spiced chocolate from Mexico is used for mocha and hot chocolate drinks, and Beaner is one of the only shops I know of that has hemp milk as an option! There are a wide variety of amazing pastries, cookies, and other baked goods, including vegan and gluten-free choices, all made by local neighborhood artisans. You can also get one of the cheapest and most delicious meals in all of Brooklyn - a huge and hearty chicken or cheese tamale with a side of beans and corn for only FIVE BUCKS.

For just $40 a month, I can use the facilities and equipment at this great unassuming gym that my personal trainer works out of. It's really spacious and not often crowded, and the machines are kept in good working order at all times.

Really top notch burgers & fries, but a teensy bit pricy. The flavors are great, and the food is very satisfying but it feels expensive precisely because the meals are so unpretentious. Note however that the price does not stop me from coming back for more!!

The family operated chain was amazing when it first opened, but has lost a bit of its luster. Quality seems to have dropped off a bit, as they seem to be employing folks who just don't care as much about making a good product. It's pretty hit or miss at this point.

Recently ordered an eclectic bunch of food items from here: Hawaiian, cheeseburger, BBQ chicken, and spinach & ricotta empanadas; a Reuben hero with plantains on the side; A chicken caesar wrap with yucca fries, and a chicken burrito with french fries. Everything was great! All the tastes in the empanadas were luscious, the plantains and yucca were cooked just right, but the burrito and the creamy sauce that came on the side were a bit over the top spicy. But overall really great fare, will definitely be back!

I'm not a fan of pizza as thin as Saluggi's makes theirs; I prefer a somewhat thicker crust, and I like more cheese on top. I'd have to stack three slices of Saluggi's on top of each other to get the nice thick slice that I want! Their flavors are otherwise decent, I just wish they'd work harder on their dough.

A terrific concept, imported from Turkey - waffle sandwiches! A host of creative flavor options are available... build your own, or order a premade combo from the menu. Also has online payment systems like Square available to make purchases, and have a loyalty program which reduces the cost of sandwiches. Try the "wolf sauce" and ask if they have any of their signature freshly made juices!
