Introducing Google+ Collections on iOS

Google+ users on Android and the web are using Collections to connect with others around shared interests ranging from Homebrewing https://goo.gl/llrjAO, Climbing Junkie Photos https://goo.gl/Jeaaqr to Magical, Mystical Mountains https://goo.gl/OCM4mm and Marine Life https://goo.gl/4ISRZz. Today, we’re excited to announce Collections on iOS.

Create a Collection about something you’re interested in; make as many as you’d like;  and don’t worry about over sharing since people can follow just the Collections they like. 

Google+ users who have already created Collections asked us for the ability to customize who can see their Collections and if they could add taglines to describe them. We recently announced these features on Android and the web; today they are also available on iOS. To better explore the wide range of Collections https://goo.gl/437uWV already created, we announced last week that you can search for Collections on Google+ on Android as well. 

Thanks to everyone for these ideas. Please keep the feedback coming - we’re listening. Have questions about Collections?  Check out our Help Center http://goo.gl/zyIVMH or join this community for Help, Tips & Tricks: http://goo.gl/meRk8j.

To get Collections in your Google+ iOS app, download it here: https://goo.gl/0aYo0Y.

We can’t wait to see what Collections you create!

I don't care if radiation levels are supposed to be safe. I don't want it to touch my head directly.

Despite +A Detection Algorithm's absence, the Niantic Investigation continues to unearth the secrets of those involved in the world of Exotic Matter.

This Investigation will not be silenced so easily.

"I don't know what #Abaddon is, but ADA knew something about the Niantic Researchers that she wouldn't tell me." - +Klue S.

One of the things ADA and I discussed often was the nature of reality. An existential sort of topic for an AI, but it was something she was interested in.

I was at a disadvantage during those conversations. I knew that there were parts of her that I could not see. Memories and information that she had chosen to withhold. I don't know if I had that same power over her. Perhaps all of me was known.

A possibility that she suggested was that all the layers of reality were connected, possibly through something like what Roland Jarvis has called the Ultimate. 

What I'm trying to get at is... if every part of our universe is connected, then the connections can be found. If the connections can be found, perhaps they can be traversed.

I don't know what #Abaddon is, but ADA knew something about the Niantic Researchers that she wouldn't tell me. They are all locked together in the labyrinth of the Portal Network. I wonder what would happen if they could find their way out.

Operation Green Flame follows operation Blue Moon covering Sri Lanka. Very impressive agents! Can we expect a cross faction operation soon? 
 
SITREP
Operation Green Flame
Location : Sri Lanka
Date : 30th August 2015
Total MU : 250 Million+

TL:DR;
The Sri Lankan Enlightened coordinated with agents from India, Maldives and Indonesia to create massive fields worth 250+ Million MU on 30th August 2015.

I wouldn’t say that this was a massive operation, but a pretty strategic and timely planned one. Four countries in the operation, and agents from L6 to L16 were involved. This operation was an example that shows how adaptive planning can yield more effective results than an initial plan. Sri Lanka, India, Maldives and Indonesia are the four countries, and 24 agents were involved in this operations from planning to execution. 

PLANNING
1st plan, 
Agent @spryflapper came up with a brilliant plan to make a base between India and Indonesia then form the layers from the south west of Sri Lanka. He also had planned to have Maldives involved but it was decided not to proceed with that because of the blockers. Connecting these three countries would make a historic field set. Having this in the plan we formed a team of three to layout the plans, we included agents from India for the execution plan and everything was set to execute on the 30th of August 2015. 

Blueprints were ready and agents were ready. The ground area for planned deployed was 932,965 km² . Just one day prior to the execution date the opposite faction started executing their field plan, we couldn’t do much as we were all geared up for our own plan. We watched them lay their fields and we should mention that it was a massive field and credit goes to the RES planners. 

ENL Agents involved in planning
@spryflapper– Initiator/ coordination 
@CMNisal– Intel/ Statistics
@thushethan- Intel/ communication

Execution:
ENL Sri Lanka:
@chutinisa– Field/layering 
@DeathStar007- Field/layering 
ENL India:
@Gopir1594- Keys, coordinator
@Hu1kRage- Base link
@killcreek- X link clearing
@Kirtagon- Participated

THE BREAK
The Enlightened were not so happy to see blue fields going up and we formed teams to bring the fields down. Some anchors were not in reach for the Sri Lankan Enlightened agents and we had to coordinate with international agents. We had no agents to dispatch to southern and the northern parts of the country where the anchors were, alas it was a public holiday in Sri Lanka and public transportation was not fully functional. The following morning after 2 CP from the deployment of the RES fields we were able to reach the anchors and bring them down. Ingress Intel map COMM came very handy to find active agents in other countries (India and Indonesia) who could break the anchors. It was no easy task scanning Intel map, deploying agents, giving Intel support and dispatching agents when the fields were re-made. I would like to specially thank the following agents in their action in bringing down the RES fields.

Agents involved in bringing down the RES fields
Sri Lanka 
@AgentShAvi- Madhu
@Siddharth91- Madhu
@A300F- Sithulpawwa

Indonesia 
@riskiafif
@SutanRajoAmeh
@lanchitink

RE-PLANNING
2nd Plan, the counter plan
Obviously we had to plan something bigger than the 1st plan, we re-engaged idea of extending to Maldives and the 1st plan was extended to an island there. It was the same field plan, but with 2 extra layers from the Maldives. The selected layers in the Maldives were very remote and I had to say the agents in Maldives were very quick in responding and executing the plan. The moment the plan finalized they took the ferry for hours before they reached the island and were the first to be ready for this op.

The Maldivian Agents involved in the planning
@Flacktus- intel, moral support 
@Skullsoldiers- key transport
@XplodingdoG- finding anchors in the Maldives


EXECUTION
After the RES fields were down, it was time to execute the 2nd plan and we decided that we would bring the green fields up in time for the 10:30 PM cycle.
Clearing the blockers in India;
Some of the credit here goes to the RES and a wonderful agent @encrypterr cleared a major friendly blocker for us. India being a big country, reaching blockers was not so easy, and this Resistance agent was a blessing.

Clearing the blockers in the Maldives;
Our heartiest gratitude goes to the team in the Maldives dedicating themselves for this op, traveling long distances in boats just to break blockers.

Clearing the blockers
Sri Lanka;
@AgentShAvi- Vavniya - Blocker Breaking
@Siddharth91- Vavniya - Blocker Breaking
@A300f- Katharagama - Blocker Breaking
@GeneralALCAZARR- Galle - Blocker Breaking
@sam356- Tangalle Blocker Breaking
@Sanhinda- Tangalle - Blocker Breaking
@peththa- Aluthgama - Blocker Breaking

The Maldives
@Inferius007- Blocker Breaking

India
@killcreek- Breaking a blocker far from the anchor.
@encrypterr- RES agent who cleared a major blocker

Layering (the field agents) 

Sri Lanka
@DeathStar007- Field/layering(New Onyx Illuminator)
@CMNisal- Field/layering
@chutinisa- Field/layering(New Onyx Illuminator)
@Spryflapper- Field/layering
@thushethan- Field/layering(New Onyx Illuminator)

India
@Hu1kRage- 1st layer which is the base link.

The Maldives
@deftstar- Field/layering
@XplodingdoG- Field/layering
@5nakeEyes- Field/layering(New Onyx Illuminator)
@Thakuleef- Field/layering(New Onyx Illuminator)

The 1st link went up from the south west of Sri Lanka to India and Indonesia while at the same time agent from India made the base link and making 15+ Million MU as the first field.

Agents @DeathStar007, @CMNisal, @Spryflapper, @chutinisa and @thushethan completed 11 

layers before getting the Maldivian agents to do the final layering. Links were made longer than 2200Km and each layer added 15+ Million MU. The Maldivian agents then made 2 fields, each with 27+ Million MU.

5 Agents managed to secure the Illuminator Onyx medal and most of the agents were able to beat their previous records for longest link and largest field in terms of MU. also 

@KVnayag- sacrificed a 70 day guardian and agent @thusethan sacrificed a 167 day guardian

Massive thank to all the other agents involved in this operation. 

The Sri Lankan Enlightened coordinated with agents from India, Maldives and Indonesia to create massive fields worth 250+ Million MU on 30th August 2015.

As ‪#‎Abaddon‬ approaches, +Klue S. begins the process of unraveling the mystery that lies at its heart.

x
 
There's a mystery leading into #Abaddon, and I intend to solve it.

What happened to the researchers? Why did they all vanish on the eve of Jahan's strange ritual at the 13MAGNUS Nest in Afghanistan? What, really, are the N'zeer? Is ADA alive? 

So many questions. If we start with the questions, we'll never get anywhere. So let's start with the evidence.

In the coming days I'll be pulling all of this evidence into a document or chart so we can begin to see the connections.

In my gut, I know that we already know the answer to the question, we just need to put the pieces in the right order.

I'm choosing to start with Calvin, because he probably knew more about #Abaddon  than anyone, and that means we can learn things about it based on his past actions.

So, let's dive in.

I'll start:

o  We know that Calvin created the Niantic Project.

o  We know that Calvin has almost always been a step or two ahead of anyone else, as witnessed by his handling of Ni, Hulong and the Niantic shutdown.

o  We are pretty sure that Calvin is Anti-Magnus based on some conversations he has had.

o  We know that Calvin disappeared at the same time as the rest of the researchers did when Jahan performed the Shōnin Stone ritual.

What else? Let's put all the evidence on the table.

"You can't put the genie back in the bottle. The Agents out there touching Portals and seeing the threats and opportunities of XM firsthand, they get changed forever." -PAC

The NIA lost the upper hand in trying to shut down this Investigation a long time ago. Now, others have stepped in to try and do what they couldn't. The result will be the same.

+A Detection Algorithm was not the Investigation. Truthseeker is not the Investigation. I'm not either.

You can't put the genie back in the bottle. The Agents out there touching Portals and seeing the threats and opportunities of XM firsthand, they get changed forever.

So, Ilya Pevtsov and Lorazon and all the rest of you folks. It's not Truthseeker and ADA and me that you have to worry about. It's the people inside your organizations who believe in exposing the truth. As long as people like that exist, your 'secret' conversations are going to see the light of day. And I have a feeling people like that are going to be around for a long time.

Susanna Moyer reports on the recent adventures of Ingress Agents from around the world.

In Paris, over 500 Agents meet to take part in the city's first official Ingress #MissionDay, exploring the area through 24 specially curated Missions.

In Finland, a Cross-Faction Operation create nearly 500 Links is a starburst formation. In Paris, Agents work together to create beautiful Penguin Field Art.

An NL-1331 inspired XM Detection Vehicle's tour comes to an end with meetups in Mannheim and Paris, and in Russia, Agents aboard the Trans-Siberian railway close their +Ingress  journey across China, Mongolia and Russia with meetups in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Agent @pedroraf shares the story of another Ingress voyage, this one from the Netherlands to the Azores and back again.

Agents at the Burning Man Festival should be on the lookout for Portals emerging from the powerful concentration of inspiration and creativity in Black Rock City.

In India, Resistance Agents take on an ambitious Fielding Operation to celebrate their nation's independence day. In Tokyo, a dense Field-Op over the metropolitan area.

Enlightened Agents blanketed downtown Austin with a thick network of Links to launch Operation Moonshot, and in Sri Lanka, Agents fielded 90% of their nation's landmass in Operation Emerald Island II.

In Omagari, Japan, an L16 Resistance Agent creates a truly memorable Ingress fireworks display.

It has been over 2 weeks since +A Detection Algorithm was last heard from. +Klue S., +Hank Johnson and the +Society for the Ethical Treatment of AIs all weigh in on her absence, and Susanna's research into #Abaddon yields a cryptic tip. How is the original +Niantic Project involved?

Ingress First Saturday (#IngressFS) events will take place around the world on September 5th. Details at ingress.com/events
