Just the facts Maam
 
How do we get out of this MESS?

from +Bernie Sanders' recent interview in the Washington Post:
  "So we have to very straightforwardly and unashamedly address this wealth inequality. We have come up with some tax proposals already, which begins that process – a transaction tax on Wall Street, a program that would end the ability of corporations to stash their money in the Cayman Islands.. 
  When we are seeing a massive redistribution of wealth since 1985 from the middle class to the top one tenth of one percent, our economic goals have got to be to redistribute that wealth back to the people who had it. How do you do that? You start, you have to create decent-paying jobs. I have introduced legislation that would spend about $1 trillion over the next five years to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure. That would create about 13 million new jobs and maintain some jobs. Clearly, we’ve got to raise the minimum wage to a living wage, which would be $15 an hour. We need pay equity for women."    http://goo.gl/Ent4Q4         http://goo.gl/f6e9Fb

YAY! Its here and it was worth the wait! #Ingress   #AndroidWear  client is here! Detects portals. Shows you distance to them. Allows you to hack them. Shows you the results. And shows you the time till you can hack them again. 

Its near the end of the day here and so it killed my battery fairly quickly! Doesn't seem to allow Glyph hacking which is fine with me. I could see this being nice for farming on the way to work and around the place! 

Doesn't seem to have an "always on" version. I am not sure how well the timers last. I think my testing was hurt by the Watch (#Moto360) going into battery saving setting. 

Worth the wait! Can't wait to test it more tomorrow! Thankfully have a charging pad on my desk at work to top up during the day! 

Oh, available in the 1.81.0 update!
