Stream Energy Is Taking Corporate Generosity To The Next Level

Dallas company Stream Energy used its own revenue from sales to aid its customers in the recovery effort after Hurricane Harvey. Stream Energy has been showing Dallas corporations the way to include philanthropy in their mission for years but only just solidified its own charity foundation, “Stream Cares”. Stream Energy believes that starting a separate charity branch to continue its ongoing help in Texas and throughout the country earns the respect of the public while giving back to the community. Stream Energy has not only spent many years fostering longstanding partnerships with Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross but its employees are also very involved with locally connected charities.

One cause that’s cemented in the employee’s hearts is the homelessness in Dallas. Stream employees routinely take note of how many people are homeless in the Dallas area at a given time realizing this would be a forcible avenue to give. One way Stream is accomplishing this is teaming up with Hope Supply Company. Together they supply diapers, clothing, school gear and so much more to homeless children in Dallas.

Another call to action for Stream was when the tornadoes touched down in North Texas during December 2016. Stream employees worked directly with the Salvation Army raising thousands of dollars for those who lost their homes and businesses. Stream Energy matched those funds, doubling the donations brought in by its associates.

Stream’s philanthropy doesn’t stop there as Dallas area veterans and their families have also been on the receiving end of Stream’s generosity. Stream donated transportation for these less fortunate veteran families to a special luncheon at a wonderful Texas restaurant. The following day 10 daughters of military members were honored to The American Girl Experience. At this event Stream associates helped 10 young ladies choose an American Girl Doll and later ate lunch at the American Girl Cafe. So for the people at Stream Energy, a dedication to those less fortunate is second nature.

Lawrence Bender’s Four Rooms Still a Hit Over 20 Years Later

The 1995 comedy, mystery, suspense and adventure film Four Rooms, has as much variety as its multiple directors.

Set at the fictional “Hotel Mon Signor” in Hollywood, the film opens with a newly hired bellboy, played by Tim Roth receiving instruction on his job duties from the exiting Marc Lawrence, cast as Sam.

Four Rooms is as its title describes is a compilation of the vignettes of stories in four different hotel rooms.

The first story is an amusing tale of a coven of witches who have gathered to invoke their goddess Diana and remove a curse through a magical ceremony. While all of the older coven members have brought their necessary ingredients, the newest member, played by Ione Skye, still needs to collect hers, male “essence,” and time is running out.

Skye acts quickly, seduces Roth and the story ends with Diana emerging from the cauldron at the center of the room.

Lawrence Bender, the film’s producer makes a brief cameo as the desk manager who calls Roth, directing him to his next assignment.

In Room 404, a couple engaged in some extremely dangerous role play draw the bellboy into their fantasy accusing him of having committed adultery with the wife, played by Jennifer Beals.

Right before he is punished, in a pretty humorous scene, Roth escapes through the small bathroom window.

Antonio Banderas and Tamlyn Tomita hire Roth to watch after their misbehaving children. The kids refuse to go to bed and get into all types of mischief in the hotel room, opening a bottle of champagne and even setting the room on fire.

Several hours later Banderas and his wife return, finding the room filled with flames and smoke with Roth unable to control the children who are drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes culminating in a mysterious woman’s body popping out of a suitcase.

By this point, Roth is ready to quit. However, the manager convinces him to stay for one last room service.

The Penthouse suite is occupied by the segment’s director Quentin Tarantino, who is promoting the benefits of Cristal while he gathers the props delivered by Roth as part of a wager the group is going to see through.

Tarantino has bet one of his guests the he will not be able to successfully light a Zippo lighter ten consecutive times. What Roth is needed for is to execute the part of the bet that results if the would be performer is unable to complete the lighter tasks.

Roth initially refuses but when the deal is sweetened by offering him $1000 for his part, he has a change of heart.

After one attempt, Paul Calderon fails and Roth chops off his finger and counts his money with a satisfied grin as he walks off the hotel property.
This is one of Lawrence Bender’s better productions. He was able to bring together separate directors with different stories to tell and weave them together into a very entertaining plot with a story that doesn’t lag and keeps the audience entertained and involved throughout.

Jewish-born, Bronx native Lawrence Bender has won three Academy Award nominations for Best Motion Picture and several awards for his films.

Lawrence Bender’s other productions include Nancy Drew, From Dusk til Dawn, An Inconvenient Truth, Good Will Hunting and Pulp Fiction.

God of War’s PS4 Semi-Reboot Looks Astonishing

The last installment we’ve seen of the main God of War trilogy was released on the PS3 way back in 2010. For years, the series was just a brutally fun and quick action-adventure game where you get to play as the anti-hero Kratos. The character wasn’t quite meant to be liked, the past games haven’t really shown his personality where you could actually relate. It was truly focused on the gory fighting sequences, cinemas and the mash ’em up gameplay. The upcoming release for the next installment is soon and PlayStation 4 owners will get the chance to play a totally new and possibly the most spectacular God of War game ever created. The game’s creative director, Cory Barlog, decided it was time to develop a more personal gaming experience and focus the story line on Kratos himself, making the character have far more depth and dimension then ever before.

Kratos is now a father of one and sports a full peppered-grey beard in this spectacular semi-reboot. Players can now completely control Kratos and his son, Atreus, as they battle monsters and mythical beings. The developers curtailed the forced action scenes with button-pressing sequences, players now have the chance to throw and hack with Kratos’ new weapon of choice, the Leviathan Axe. He also wields a hefty shield and you absolutely will need to utilize it throughout the game. Players can upgrade their weapons and armor as well as level up both Kratos and his son. The scenery in the game is gorgeous and the attention to detail is widespread.

The gameplay itself is linear and similar to most newly released role-playing games. The enemies seem to be all related to Norse mythology rather than Greek mythology. There will be plenty of ogres, trolls, draugrs, revenants and the possessed to destroy. God of War for the PS4 have been nominated for the “Most Anticipated Game” for two consecutive years at the annual Game Awards. It was also nominated for “Best PlayStation 4 Game” and “Game of the Show” at the IGN’s Best of E3 2016 Awards. The game already won a “Special Commendation for Graphics” award at the 2016 Game Critics Awards. God of War’s worldwide release date is scheduled on April, 20, 2018, exclusively on the PlayStation 4.

God of War Preps for Release

A month away from release, the preview embargo has been lifted on God Of War. The result was an avalanche of videos and information pertaining to the new edition of the beloved franchise.

Players have fought along side Ares, killed Ares, and became the new god of war during the series’ long history. While controlling Kratos, players have fought nearly every Greek God. Kratos has fought notable Greek figures as Charon, Hades, Erinyes, Thanatos, Poseidon, and even Zeus himself.

With a hit list as long as Kratos’, players may be left wondering what can be next for their favorite god of war. The new game in the series aims to completely reinvent the franchise.

The biggest change people will notice with the new game is the combat. Everyone knows that Kratos has been overpowered in previous consoles. The fast paced combat that gamers are familiar with in God of War is gone. The typically hack and slash combat has been replaced with a slower paced, more tactical combat system. The new combat style borrows a lot from Dark Souls, but is original enough to stand on its own innovations. The changes made to the new combat style provide more depth for the player; a wider range of weapons perfectly compliments the more strategy focused combat, players can use Krato’s axe, counter attack with his shield and use his fists.

The slower, more tactile combat has not reduced the gruesome kills that the game is most famous for. Using Leviathan’s Axe, Kratos is able to swing through enemies with ease. Decapitations and de-limbing happen on regular basis. In addition to basic attacks and power attacks, Kratos is able to throw the axe similar to the way a boomerang is thrown. The axe is also heavily involved in puzzles.

Another big change to the franchise is the lack of button mashing and no focus on quick time actions.

The developers behind God of War have made an excellent decision in lifting the preview embargo so early. Prominent names in the video game industry have flooded the internet with free promotion for Sony.

The influx of recent information pertaining to God of War have shown that God of War has been improved in countless ways. God of War will be a day one purchase for many owners of PlayStation 4.

God of War releases for the PlayStation 4 on April 20, 2018.

4. Reigns: Kings and Queens

Packaging together two of its previous versions, Reigns and Reigns: Her Majesty, this game is inspired by the infamous Tinder swipe-left-or-right protocol.
