Well said.
 
Dropping a different kind of knowledge on you all today. Things most of us involved in the social aspect experience but few ever want to openly talk about. Theres a darker side of Ingress sociality and I think it could be beneficial to check our reality.

The team of four Materials Science & Engineering majors have developed a nail polish that changes color when exposed to date rape drugs, including GHB, Rohypnol, and Xanax. The wearer can stir her drink with a finger. If her drink has been tampered with, she'll know within seconds.

On their Facebook page, they write "With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger. If her nail polish changes color, she’ll know that something is wrong."

Team member Ankesh Madan discussed the origins of the company's ideas with Higher Education Works: "Undercover Colors started out as an idea born in my co-founders’ active imaginations," he said. "As we were thinking about big problems in our society, the topic of drug-facilitated sexual assault came up. All of us have been close to someone who has been through the terrible experience, and we began to focus on finding a way to help prevent the crime."

They also "wanted to focus on preventative solutions, especially those that could be integrated into products that women already use. And so the idea of creating a nail polish that detects date rape drugs was born."

Not only does the new product create a major line of defense against assault -- which 1 in women will experience in their lifetimes -- but the detectors like the polish can also protect against health reactions the drugs can cause. According to The Office On Womens Health, these drugs, when mixed with alcohol, can kill you. GHB, for example, has been shown by the University of Oxford to slow the elimination of alcohol. This can cause respiratory depression and death.
"Our goal is to invent technologies that empower women to protect themselves from this heinous and quietly pervasive crime," the founders say.

Dear +T-Mobile ,

Your on-line JUMP! service is garbage.

I recently upgraded my device using the on-line Jump service.  Everything seemed to go well and I received my new device a few days later.  The new device came with a poorly padded envelope and a single piece of paper with no instructions about mailing the old device back.  I filled out the required information regarding the device I was sending back.
"Is the device damaged?"  No
"Does the phone turn on?"  Yes
"Is there water damage?"  No  
Blah Blah Blah..

I promptly sent the device back in order to receive my "credit" which would pay off the remaining balance on the old device.  Two weeks go by and I start getting text messages from T-mobile stating the device was never received. 

I contacted T-mobile and spoke with a representative who informed me it takes a long time to receive devices and to just wait it out.  Meanwhile my bill is due and I get charged the monthly payment for the old device as well as the new device I just received.  This was brought up with the next representative I spoke to, with their response being "don't worry, when we DO receive the old device your account will be credited."  

Another week goes by and I finally receive a text from T-mobile, "Hope you are enjoying your JUMP! upgrade.  Call us at **** for important information about the device you recently mailed."  The number I contacted turned out to be their Damaged device claim service.  I now find out the device was damaged during transit and I need to file an "accidental damage claim" and pay $150.00 in order for them to replace the broken device and clear the remaining balance from my account.  The representative I spoke to this time told me to contact T-mobile and dispute my claim.  

Back on the phone with T-mobile again.. This is where it gets fun...  The rep I spoke to informed me I SHOULD NOT have used the on-line JUMP! option because there is no way T-mobile can verify the device is in good working order when it is sent out.. MIND BLOWN... Why would T-mobile offer an on-line JUMP! option if their intention is to make you pay for damage done to the device (in transit) you can't prove was not done before it was shipped?  I was also told I could contact UPS and find out why it was damaged.. No no no, T-mobile, YOU contact UPS and find out why they broke your device.   Thank you, T-mobile for wasting my time and money trying to resolve something you need to address immediately.

I sincerely hope no one else has had to deal with this, as I am still hassling with either T-mobile or the claim center.  Please figure out a better way to handle these situations +T-Mobile, don't just dump me on the claims center and automatically file a claim for me.  (which was done more than once..) for something which was out of my control.

My advice to anyone using this service is, don't.  Lesson learned.  Thank you life..

NIA promoting cross faction events. IFS...
 
Agents.  We are pleased to announce a new type of Niantic event - "Ingress: First Saturday."

Part social, part competitive, Ingress: First Saturday is an Agent-organized meetup that happens on the first Saturday of the month.  The very first #IngressFS meetup will happen on November 1, 2014; and 24 cities will be selected to receive Niantic Labs' official "Ingress: First Saturday Kits (IFSK-100)".  The select 24 cities will be chosen on October 20, 2014 from those communities/cities that register at http://goo.gl/pNR7pI

Ingress:  First Saturday Schedule:

10:00 AM  Cross-Faction Coffee:  Join or invite new and seasoned Enlightened and Resistance Agents in this purely social Cross-Faction meetup. All Levels are encouraged to join.  Grab a cup of coffee, meet local Agents face-to-face-to-face, learn how to play Ingress or teach a new Agent the ins and outs of Ingress and share Ingress stories.

12:00 PM  Level-Up Bootcamp (Start):  Register your level and AP with the opposing Faction lead.  HiLVL Agents will pair with newer Agents working to level up.  Note that the official Visur game mechanic will reward AP gained among low level Agents during #IngressFS most handsomely.

2:00 PM  Level-Up Bootcamp (End):  Agents will check back in with the opposing Faction Lead to record their final AP.  Individual Faction prizes are included in IFSK-100's.  Communities are encouraged to develop their own Faction prize/trophies.

Can Austin take Portland?  Will Sydney top Aukland? Shall Buenos Aires rise above Rio?  City v. city total Cross-Faction AP gain will be measured and reported back to #IngressFS for bragging rights and possible awarding of the next set of IFSK-100's for December 6, 2014 (48 cities).

Register your November 1 #IngressFS event via http://goo.gl/pNR7pI. On October 20, Niantic Labs will poll all registered Google+ event pages for RSVP "Yes" attendance and other factors.  24 selected cities will be shipped an IFSK-100 - designed to supply a total of 100 Agents.

I knew it! 
When you order your fancy coffee drink and give them a name for your order, why does Starbucks always seem to get it wrong? Your first inclination may be to think that they're being thick, but that's not it at all... (NSFW language...
