Rejected New Submission
Name: Morrison Remick Waite
Portal location: N 41° 40.859 W 083° 34.715  (http://tinyurl.com/pt8rvp5)

Reason for Rejection: Does not meet criteria.

(Let's ignore that a SLIDE on a children's playground just went live today because the submitter called it "Low Gravity Simulator".  That meets criteria? )

The candidate Portal meets the following criteria:

A LOCATION WITH A COOL STORY, A PLACE IN HISTORY OR EDUCATIONAL VALUE
-- Interesting story behind the location/object
-- Historical significance (apart from just being old)

This is the final resting place of Morrison Remick Waite, the 7th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.  Under Waite's leadership, the Court heard and decided nearly 3,500 cases, of which Waite himself wrote for the majority more than 1000 times.  His high regard for a balance between Federal and State authorities influenced his work on the Bench, with some of his most notable work providing broader protections and rights for freedmen, and harsher sanctions against vigilante groups such as the KKK.  His style of Court management, his prolific output, and his social liberalism still influence modern jurisprudence.

A respected attorney in Maumee beginning in 1838, and later in Toledo, Waite served one term as Mayor of Maumee.  Later, he ran for, and was elected to the Ohio State Legislator, where he served a term in the Ohio House of Representatives from 1849 - 1850.  In 1850, citing his vehement opposition to slavery, Waite helped found the Ohio Republican Party.  In 1874, he presided over the Ohio Constitutional Convention.

On January 21st, 1874, President Ulysses S. Grant nominated Waite to be Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.  He was unanimously confirmed on January 24th, and served from March 4, 1874 to March 23, 1888, when he perished from a particularly virulent strain of pneumonia.  Throughout his government service, Waite retained his private law practice.

Justice Waite is a figure of historical significance, both locally and nationally.  A local high school in East Toledo bears his name, in honor of his service to the citizens of Toledo, Ohio, and the nation.

A POINT OF INTEREST THAT FACILITATES DISCOVERY / EXERCISE
-- Promotes the idea of “Adventures on foot”
-- Encourages outdoor exploration

Waite's tomb is near the banks of a branch of the Ottawa River, in Section 42 of a beautifully landscaped, historic Victorian cemetery.  Historic Woodlawn Cemetery is maintained as a park, and hosts more than 300 species of trees, numerous flowers, and more than 200 species of birds.  Deer are also regular inhabitants of Woodlawn, providing peaceful company for early morning or early twilight visitors.

I am generally in favor of portals in the Cities of the Dead. In particular, when the tombs are those of people with some significance to the community or the world. They provide an opportunity for people to learn about their city's history, and are an important link to our past. (A stroll through Woodlawn is like wandering the City Archives, I love it.)

That said, if you're being a dick about it, I'll be among those to cheerfully help throw you out. Don't go climbing the fence after the caretaker has locked up, don't litter, don't damage anything, and be respectful of both the Residents and their living family members visiting them. We left Woodlawn entirely when we arrived to find a service in progress.

On Saturday morning, the husband and I got out of bed at ass-thirty in the morning to execute one of his brilliant plans. We had made a point to go out and hack two particular portals every day last week to gather keys, and had taken out a few strategic RES portals.

Once the coffee was poured, it was off to clear a few blocking links that had been vexing us. We waited until Saturday to clear them so we wouldn't tip our hand. The Smurfs around here are desperate for opportunities to play, so we knew that once we started hammering on those last two portals, the clock would begin ticking and we would have to work fast.

11 layers. 93.2K MU. 35 minutes from start to finish. And it stayed up for two hours, which was an hour and 45 minutes longer than we expected.

The advantage to getting up early and getting done so fast is that we had the entire rest of the day to do Missions!

Did you throw links up into the previously linked portal as well.  Would have been more layers.

+NIA Ops I have written a total of 4 Missions, and have completed 6.  I'm loving the Missions, but I am quite frustrated by the inability to see missions outside of a particular radius.  For instance, I just had a Mission approved this morning.  I am out of town, so I can't see it.  My husband is at home, he can't see it.  My friend, who works near one of the waypoints, can see it.  He works only a few km from my house!

Similarly, I embarked on a Post Office mission in my city the other day. I knew it was there, but it did not appear in the mission list until I was rather close to one of the waypoints.  When we moved a bit away from one, the Mission disappeared from the list entirely.  This caused some frustration with the other people I was with for the mission, they couldn't start it until we had come within whatever arbitrary distance had been set.

It would be really helpful for both Mission creators and Mission enthusiasts if there were a way to display more missions.  Perhaps a function of "Show me Missions within [X] km of my current location", and one of "Show me Missions within [X] km of [ZIP CODE]"?  I'd like to be able to plan out Missions to do when I'm traveling, but if I can't see what's available until I get there, that makes it hard.  (I am, in fact, traveling this week, and Missions I could see when I arrived in town last night are now not visible to me now that I am halfway across town.  I know they are there, I found two I would like to do, but to see if they're feasible, I'm going to have to go half an hour across town to see them again.)

Any chance of allowing us to see more missions than just in our super-immediate area?

Hey, anyone in Eastern OH active tonight? RES is apparently getting ready to throw a 4 state field. If you can throw some blocking links West, it would be great!

That is a great idea. So Do we really want to use Hangouts or one of the many other chats available (GroupeMe, Slash). I have found hangouts to be quite annoying and hard to moderate and manage. Also you would need a vetting process, so as to minimize the exposure of the group to spies, etc.

Ready for #PortalAppealReview 62 -7

Type of appeal: Rejected Title Edit
Current Title: Museum People
Proposed Title: Spiegel

Location:  https://www.ingress.com/intel?ll=41.657284,-83.555628&z=18

(Streetview:  http://tinyurl.com/kx97hna )

This painted stainless steel sculpture by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, entitled "Spiegel", was acquired by the Toledo Museum of Art in 2012, and installed near the entrance to the Museum Campus.

The person who submitted this Portal called his submission "Museum People".  This is not the correct title of the piece.  The artist titled it "Spiegel", from the German for "Mirror", which describes the mirror images of the figures.

Oh, Pam.  I'm so sorry.  It's so vexing to have to deal with all of the crap that goes along with RA as it is, to have it force you out of your working life is insult to injury.  I'm really glad that your organization is trying to accommodate you and find another position for you.
Last week I officially acknowledged what I can no longer do -- my current job. It was announced in my org that I was stepping down from my position as an IT manager. I'll vacate as soon as they hire a successor. I did this j...
