Sounds like a defensive item is in the works.
Welcome back to another Ingress teardown. For those new to Teardowns, we simply compare the previous release (1.64.0) to the current one (1.65.0) and note the differences. You would be surprised at...

Part of the deal that brings Tesla's battery plant to Nevada was allowing direct sales, even though state law requires independent dealerships.

I found a couple of quotes interesting: The direct-sales exemption will probably have “very little impact” on the state’s dealers, Frediani said. I wonder why that is? Earlier the dealers were quite concerned, claiming it would be massively unfair, they'd be unable to compete, etc, etc, etc. Now it will have minimal impact? Was that the case all along?

Auto dealers in Nevada initially opposed allowing the direct-sales exemption for Tesla, said Wayne Frediani, executive director of the Nevada Franchised Auto Dealers Association. But the association came on board in the end because its leaders felt it was ultimately in their best interest to work with the governor to help secure such a big economic development project for Nevada.

What I take from this is that the autodealers association recognized it was political suicide for anyone to oppose such a huge deal... they can't lobby politicians without jobs, so now they're basically turning to the public to score some appeal points. Not that they need it, I mean everyone loves dealerships, right? </sarcasm>
Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed tax breaks worth as much as $1.3 billion and a measure allowing Tesla Motors to sell directly to state residents, the final steps to bring the world's largest lithium-ion battery factory to Reno.

I was mostly surprised by the statement from the auto dealer's association. I would have expected them to fight till the bitter end, or at least only support it begrudgingly.

Thanks for the appeal. In our first review, we did not have enough information to accept this Portal. We've reversed our decision, and the Portal is online.  To help in the decision making process, adding a detailed description to the Portal is always helpful.

Autoawesome made a pretty interesting photo out of this "proof of completion" from our work scavenger hunt yesterday.

Aside: Does it still count as a scavenger hunt if you have to do things rather than find things? I feel like there might be a "more correct" word to use.

Yeah, all of ingress.com was showing it. Like the comments say, it's their standard error page when they bring the site down for maintenance or Google App Engine craps out on them.

+Netflix​ please bring back recently watched. Continue watching is a fine category, but it's completely unordered. Recently watched is where I navigated for most of my viewing. With recently watched gone, the service is less convenient.

Just a reminder for agents in the field. Try not to be childish. Yes it's fun to roleplay the secret agent thing, but there's really no need to give people the finger or shout cuss words. Most of us are adults, but some of us have teens and younger that play with us and that kind of behavior isn't always taken as the joke (I hope) you meant it as.

And that's all I feel needs to be said about this topic.

Anyone know the consumer protection laws in ND? This looks like a bait and switch to me...

Concert promoters setup multi-day festival, advertising Andrew W.K. as the headline event. Less than a week (3-4 days) before the festival starts, Andrew W.K. posts on his website (http://goo.gl/998xzV) that the promoters canceled the event and he feels terrible. 

Promoters' facebook event (http://goo.gl/VBLwnq) states, "Nope, not canceled. But Andrew W.K. isn't coming." Later Andrew's website is updated to reflect this (still claiming it wasn't his decision).

Promoters have deleted posts from users asking for refunds, and privately tell individuals that, "You're the only one asking for a refund, you should just come." They don't respond well to, "Screw you, I'm not driving 3 hours if you canceled the main event; this isn't weather or Andrew got sick, this is you canceled him." They don't admit they canceled his act, but they don't deny it, either.

Weekend pass is $60, which is barely more than the cost to file in small claims court (maybe less; forget if it's $50 to file or $80 to file).
THE PROMOTERS OF RISE FEST HAVE CANCELLED ANDREW'S PERFORMANCE. The festival is still having all the rest of the bands on the bill perform. Andrew and his band are very frustrated, disappointed, and are trying to figure out some other way to play in the area as soon as possible.

The metal from the honey "stove" actually reflects most of the heat back in. But yeah... only put it there for the photo ;-)

The only thing I dislike about Nichole's is that I keep forgetting they're closed on Mondays. The food is amazing!

The only thing I don't like about Smashburger is their shoestring fries. The burgers are some of the best you can find in Fargo, their shakes are huge and delicious, the sweat potato fries are... can you do sweat potato fries wrong? And the haystack onions are a great substitute for onion rings. Top it off, you can even get your burger on a pretzel bun. Sort of like a mix between modern fast food and the 50s burger dinner, Smashburger is quick, average priced (~$7 for burger+fries), well made, and you can even get a bottled beer.

'Meh' describes sweato burrito quite nicely. Their wall menu is impossible to read (someone had the bright idea of using a TV instead of a normal sign or at least a large computer monitor), but that's just where the problems start. Over the 6mo since this place opened on Broadway, I've really tried to like it, but I just can't. The rice has always been undercooked, the tortillas are often slightly stale, and their burritos are way over seasoned and come swimming in sauce. After trying them all, there's only a couple of burritos that I'd order, but with so much downtown dining, I'll just get much lunch somewhere else. When I want a good burrito, there's Q'Doba and Pancheros.

Ordered Banana Cupcake. Got a ball of frosting as big as the cupcake on top of a small, plain yellow cake cupcake with a tiny bit of banana filling squirted in. This was more of what I'd expect from a grocery store bakery than a fancy bakery. There are plenty of amazing cupcakes in town, but maybe not here.

This place is great. I almost never give 5 star reviews, but this place earned it. Hidden in the basement of the historic Loretta building downtown, you actually have to enter from the alley side; there's no access from broadway. But just because it's in the basement doesn't mean they don't have outside seating; they do! The menu is small, but everything is made to perfection; possibly the best burgers in town. Just beware of the deserts: some of them are full meals in themselves, so ask your server and be prepared to share.

Called at 9am, was told 20-30 minutes and he was there in 30. Less than 10 minutes later, he had the car unlocked. Thanks ABC Lock! Less than $50, too.
