In what has been the fiercest, back-and-forth XM Anomalies in recent memory, the Resistance strategy to establish defensive Links and capture Volatile Portals bears fruit in Measurements 3 and 4. Incredible effort put forth by Agents on both factions. Immediately rendezvous at Tommy Doyle's in Boston and Penn Social in DC for debriefing.
Total for the Resistance this Anomaly = 955. (Boston: 356 DC: 599.)
Total for the Enlightened this Anomaly = 831. (Boston: 342 DC: 489.)
Measurement 4 Details
The Resistance owned 2 Volatile Portals and 8 Non-Volatile Portals in Boston. In Washington D.C. they controlled 3 Volatile Portals and 11 Non-Volatile Portals.
The Enlightened owned 3 Volatile Portals and 12 Non-Volatile Portals in Boston. In Washington D.C. they controlled 1 Volatile Portal and 8 Non-Volatile Portals.
The Resistance had 19 Links standing at Measurement Time. 3 in Boston and 16 in Washington D.C.
The Enlightened had 2 Links standing at Measurement Time. 0 in Boston and 2 in Washington D.C.
Total for the Resistance this Measurement = 233. (Boston: 71 DC: 162.)
Total for the Enlightened this Measurement = 130. (Boston: 84 DC: 46.)

Measurement Times: 1PM, 2PM, 3PM according to a leaked document, transcribed below.
All current intel confirms that Operation #Cassandra is a massive, global, two week XM Anomaly that both Enlightened and Resistance Agents are attempting to leverage in an effort to influence major human cultural, financial and political powercenters by Shaping them with Exotic Matter. After being dominated by the Enlightened in Sydney, Australia and Milan, Italy, the Resistance finally began to turn the tide in their favor at the Tokyo, Japan vector of the Anomaly. The Anomaly is expected to impact Manila, Philippines on August 18th, 2013.
For Manila, our data regarding the nature of the Anomaly is as follows.
We intend to measure the Anomaly 3 times, at 13:00, 14:00 and 15:00 Manila Local Time (PHT) during the first 5 minutes of the hour. The exact measurement times are encrypted using an unbreakable One Time Pad, which will be revealed with the results of each measurement.
Three Clusters have been selected for measurement, and images are enclosed to clarify the Portals within each Cluster. Each Cluster corresponds to a single Measurement Time only. (Cluster 1 = Measurement 1 etc.).
15 minutes prior to each measurement, we will be able to determine 5 Volatile Portals, a subset of the active Cluster, that will be significantly more valuable to the factions when the measurement occurs.
VALUES AT MEASUREMENT TIME
(At measurement time, within the Cluster being measured)
Portal Ownership: 1 per Portal
Link connected to Portal: 2 per Link
Volatile Portal Ownership: 10 per Volatile Portal
A Single Field over All Portals in the Cluster being Measured: 50*
* Links anchored by multiple Portals will be counted once.
** In the event of overlapping Fields from different Factions, the Outermost Field will be measured.
IMPACT ON REMAINDER OF ANOMALY
The end state of this Anomaly will accumulate and carry forward for the remainder of Operation #Cassandra. The losing Faction will be able to gain access to Volatile Portal information approximately 5 minutes earlier (via Private Intel and/or Faction Comms) at the next Operation #Cassandra city.
I love Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwich shops and I alway try to sit at the table near this sign on the wall so I laugh my way through lunch. It's only funny because it's so true. (The sign is transcribed below).
* Food for Thought *
Here's some awesome advice once offered to high school students by the founder of a ridiculously successful software company.
~ Rule 1 ~
Life is not fair—get used to it!
~ Rule 2 ~
The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
~ Rule 3 ~
You will not make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
~ Rule 4 ~
If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
~ Rule 5 ~
Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping. They called it opportunity.
~ Rule 6 ~
If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault. So don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
~ Rule 7 ~
Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes, and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forests from the parasites of your parents' generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
~ Rule 8 ~
Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as many times as you need to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real life.
~ Rule 9 ~
Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.
~ Rule 10 ~
Television is not real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
~ Rule 11 ~
Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
