Neat idea! Kids (and teachers) created narrated slideshows on their Chromebooks using Google Slides and WeVideo.

+Susanna Moyer reports on a recently revealed video from the Anti-Magnus leader Jahan, who has resurfaced after a period of silence. Her message targets the prominent Enlightened member, the Acolyte, accusing her of selling false promises to the world.

Agents have been gathering by the hundreds for #MissionDay events. Susanna covers recent #MissionDay activities in Stuttgart and Olso, and also takes a look at the upcoming #MissionDay in Indianapolis at Gen Con. Given the important of Gen Con to the world of Ingress and the discovery of intel at the recent Comic Con #MissionDay , Agents should be on the lookout for anything that might further the Niantic Investigation. Agent Portalyst (+Linda Besh) will be appearing on +Behind The Scanner to share important news about the event tonight at 9PM EDT. Visit youtube.com/BehindTheScanner for more details.

On August 1st, over 120 Agent Organized First Saturdays will be taking place around the world. More details on Google+.

Sitreps: From Munich, Operation: White Unicorn. From Japan, Operation: Marine Day Fishing. From Taiwan, Operation: Jade and from Hong Kong, Operation: Summer Swim.

Share messages to your community or fellow Agents, tips and tricks or news from your part of the world on IR's Facebook post at facebook.com/ingress for a chance to have them featured in the next IR.

Beautiful poem!
 
#BeautifulThought  
Worst Day Ever?
by Chanie Gorkin

Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don't try to convince me that
There's something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer look,
This world is a pretty evil place.
Even if
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Satisfaction and happiness don't last.
And it's not true that
It's all in the mind and heart
Because
True happiness can be attained
Only if one's surroundings are good
It's not true that good exists
I'm sure you can agree that
The reality
Creates
My attitude
It's all beyond my control
And you'll never in a million years hear me say 
Today was a very good day

Now read it from bottom to top, the other way,
And see what I really feel about my day.

Yesterday, Agent Portalyst (+Linda Besh) appeared on +Behind The Scanner and shared news that intel may be emerging from Portals near the #MissionDay at Gen Con in Indianapolis.

Agents in the field: Be on the lookout for Omega.

+Operation Essex, be prepared to assist those on the ground.

+Klue S. weighs in on yesterday's intel. Her instinct is that this may the beginning of something that could unfold over the course of the #MissionDay at Gen Con.

My assessment of the intel +Verity Seke uncovered yesterday is that it is probably related to +Felicia Hajra-Lee.

Her story about what happened to me and PA was eerily accurate at times. At other times, there was a bit more... fictional license, but I suppose that's the author's right.

If these moments from Felicia are emerging from the Portals, I would keep a close eye on the #MissionDay  at Gen Con.

When PA and I were in San Diego, two missions appeared suddenly just before the cross faction meet-up began.

I'd be on the lookout for something similar in Indianapolis.

#protips for Webmasters
 
I noticed there's a bit of confusion on how to tweak a complex robots.txt file (aka longer than two lines :)). We have awesome documentation (of course :)), but let me pick out some of the parts that are commonly asked about:

- Disallowing crawling doesn't block indexing of the URLs. This is pretty widely known, but worth repeating.

- More-specific user-agent sections replace less-specific ones. If you have a section with "user-agent: *" and one with "user-agent: googlebot", then Googlebot will only follow the Googlebot-specific section. 

- More-specific directives trump less-specific ones. We look at the length of the "path-part". For example, "allow: /javascript.js" will trump "disallow: /java", but "allow: *.js" won't. 

- The paths / URLs in the robots.txt file are case-sensitive. 

For non-trivial files, tweaking can be a bit tricky. I strongly recommend using the robots.txt Tester in Search Console - it will pinpoint the line that blocks any specific URL, lets you test changes directly, and is the fastest way to let Google know of a changed robots.txt file on your site. Find out more about the tool at https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6062598

Here's the full documentation: https://developers.google.com/webmasters/control-crawl-index/docs/robots_txt

I had a fantastic experience painting with Danielle. It was my first plein air painting and I hadn't painted in oils for ages. But Danielle is an excellent teacher and I was amazed at what I could achieve in just a day.
