Want to do the +Ingress Gundam / XM Profiler mission in Odaiba Tokyo, Japan? Here's what you need to know (English version):

1. There are passcodes in the Gundam half of the mission, but all the answers are either '1' or '2', so no fear that you cannot speak the language or read kanji, just get it wrong and try again.

2. Each mural is actually 3x4, so you have to either do them side by side, or do them with lots of filler in between. I did XM profiler on the right hand side, Gundam left meaning my order of missions was: x1, x2, x3, g1, g2, g3, x4, x5, x6, g4, g5, g6 and so forth. I can only imagine it would be longer the other way.

3. Each mural was written by different authors... so it's vaguely correlated but not exactly. Sometimes it's correlated just enough that you finish one sort of hellish mission then find out the next mission is the same thing in reverse.

4. These missions are LONG by foot... Assume 1km per mission at least. Google maps says I walked at least 10 miles doing this mural, and I spread it out over 4 days. Many missions are hack these 2 portals which are really close to you -- now walk 800m to the next one.. and 600m to the next....

5. Not being an expert in the area.. you will walk out of your way and double back. There's some portals that look like you can get them at the edge of Venus Fort? Nope -- leave and go walk to the corner, doubling the distance of the walk.

6. If you can figure it out... (I gave up. I made an account by phone then said it wasn't valid) There are electric bikes all over Odaiba which are really affordable but you need to sign up through a website and use your phone to rent them. There are spots you would not be able to use these.. but there's enough drop offs that it probably would make these much easier. There is no 1 day pass counters in Odaiba, which would eliminate the whole phone part - I think?

7. The Yurikamome rail line has passes for about $7 unlimited rides for a day. Sometimes it's better to just take a step back and say -- I'm taking a break when I'm near this station, or -- it really makes sense to jump on the train instead of going to the next mission on foot (especially between rows)

8. The VERY LAST mission has portals which are very hard to hit. They are inside the Gundam Cafe inside Diver City. Go during daylight, go to the top floor by elevator where the cafe is and your GPS will land you where you are actually standing. You won't be in the right space on the ground floor.

9. You can access basically all missions any time of day (except mall ones).. and while Tokyo is extremely safe, I'd bring a friend for some of these if you are playing in the dark. You can hit all the marine museum portals from the walkway edges without actually going on the property.

Last but not least.... the Gundam is going away!! :( Early 2017 it's being removed, so I do not know how they will impact this mission but be aware.

Thank you to +kuro96kuro who is the maker of the Gundam Mission and helped guide me through some of this while in Japan.

Here is to 2 full years of #IngressFS in Fort Worth Texas.
The stories and pictures of #IFS in Fort Worth are bigger than Texas. Too many to list and some you just might not believe! Our 2015 Mural is in the middle. The outside pics are from 2016. To another great year of Ingress. To all our old friends and the new ones in the coming years. We look forward to continuing our support for the longest running IngressFS in Texas. note: There needs to be a badge for sponsors it's not always as easy as it looks. If you are every in Fort Worth look me up and I will be glad to show you some Fort Worth hospitality!

Being Part of a Community Group May Protect You From Cognitive Decline

Social engagement through civic group activities, such as being a member of a political party, an environmental group, neighborhood watch, a voluntary service group or other community based groups, is associated with better cognitive function at age 50, according to a study.

The research is in BMC Psychology. (full open access)
Summary: Researchers report people aged 50 and over who participate in social activity through a community based group appear to have better cognitive function than their less social peers.Source:
