Ingress3,383,623The world around you is not what it seems. Statues, public art, and historical sites have been activated as Ingress Portals. XM Anomalies are free player events that bring together hundreds of Resistance and Enlightened Agents of all Levels for an intense burst of walking, running, and biking gameplay. After the Anomaly, Agents rendezvous at the Cross-Faction Meetup to celebrate and meet new recruits. It’s time to move. New to Anomalies? We were all Level 1 once. Here are protips to help you get started: 1. When planning to go to an Anomaly, reach out to your local RES or ENL lead. Find your local Faction lead (http://goo.gl/ylNaLx). 2. On the day of the Anomaly, identify Agents wearing green or blue armbands to help you level up.  3. Focus efforts on building rather than destroying by deploying Resonators and establishing Links and Fields. *Anomaly schedule for 12/13/2014* Measurement Times are in-sync with the Charleston Primary Site: 2PM Measurement 1 3PM Measurement 2 4PM Measurement 3 5PM Measurement 4 Learn more about Ingress events at (www.ingress.com/events) #Darsana XM Anomaly Primary Site in Charleston, SC, USA on Sat, Dec 13.

Failing that, capture majority of the 15 contributing portals. The anomaly will be measured 5 times. At 5:02PM, 5:32PM, 6:02PM, 6:32PM and 7:02PM. The anomaly state at each and all of those 5 times will be taken into account. #freemistyMisty Hannah 03/16 Portal Anomaly @ Gary Con, Lake Geneva2013-03-16 15:02:00230

Lisa Bimmerz7,038Per request, I am sharing my Galaxy Nexus circle again...It has grown some, since I shared this circle last week.

We stopped in to this new little bookstore in Kimberton and found this amazing little reading nook for kids.
There's a little bed and book stand with plexiglass walls with lighting behind it. The walls around the hollowed out tree are covered with felt and there are all kinds of felt shapes and pictures which can be rearranged.

Our brains are now filled with how we can incorporate this into our house for Hunter (and I'm not going to lie - I want my own version of that too).

I have to remind these Black Puritans, New Negros, and Hypocritical Black Moralist, and even some of my Pan-African Brothers and Sisters of a few things....

1. There is no Hierarchy between Slaves, Colonized, or Oppressed people. We are all interchangeable to those who hold us in bondage and dominate us. Your individual progress or rise within the Systems and Institutions of the Oppressor is not evidence of a reduction in Oppression or Racism; it is evidence of the resilience and confidence of the Oppressor, that they can employ the very people they oppress to fill (high-ranking) positions within their systems. Just ask Obama.

2. Poor, Ignorant, and Powerless people are never the source of social problems. They don't determine political/economic policy, resource allocation, or national priorities; which are the real sources of social problems. Attacking the poor, the drug addicted,... more »

I have to remind these Black Puritans, New Negros, and Hypocritical Black Moralist, and even some of my Pan-African Brothers and Sisters of a few things....

1. There is no Hierarchy between Slaves, Colonized, or Oppressed people. We are all interchangeable to those who hold us in bondage and dominate us. Your individual progress or rise within the Systems and Institutions of the Oppressor is not evidence of a reduction in Oppression or Racism; it is evidence of the resilience and confidence of the Oppressor, that they can employ the very people they oppress to fill (high-ranking) positions within their systems. Just ask Obama.

2. Poor, Ignorant, and Powerless people are never the source of social problems. They don't determine political/economic policy, resource allocation, or national priorities; which are the real sources of social problems. Attacking the poor, the drug addicted, the petty criminal, the traumatized, teenage mothers, juvenile delinquents, or any of the other vulnerable people in the society will not solve one problem because they are merely symptoms of social ills, they are products of social injustice, they are not the cause. You cannot cure cancer by dealing with the symptoms, you must target the sources, the tumor; and more importantly you must target the Carcinogenic pollutants and contaminates in the environment. If you find a "leader, scholar, activist, or nationalist," who targets the vulnerable as the problem, that pathologizes the powerless; you must challenge and remove them, they have no solutions because they don't understand the problem.

3. Sharing videos and images of Black people engaged in antisocial or degrading behaviors makes you a part of that very same behavior, you are an accomplice of those antisocial and degenerate Black people in the videos you share. Even if you post such material with some comment denouncing the content, you are still spreading the disease. You can not come cough in my face and think it's OK because you told me you are against spreading the cold virus. If you are against it, don't spread it. You can denounce antisocial and degrading behaviors in the community without giving graphic vids/images of that behavior. So denounce the actions while sharing healthy alternatives.

4. Social Change, from Reform to Revolution only occurs when you target those with Power and Resources, never when you target those without Power and Resources. I know it's easy to target violent youth, mothers twerking in front of their children, crack heads fighting over the last rock, but attacking them only reinforces the Police State and our collective Oppression. We have to target the Global and Economic Elite if we really want change. We need to understand, abate, or isolate and expel at times; those who succumb to the pressures of oppression, or act out their trauma in ways that are unacceptable, or damaging to others. But attacking them is a waste of resources and energy. (I think this is a restating of #2, sorry, but it needs restating.)

5. If you are not serving the people you forfeit any right to criticize the people.

Dear +YouTube​

Maybe, just maybe, if there weren't ads for cosmetic companies while my 4 year old watches cartoons.... You could make a little more from ads.

He's smart enough to know that it's junk he doesn't care about.... I would venture to suggest most adults are able to discern that fact as well.

Good luck - i've had years of entertainment from your service and he's likely to have years of entertainment as well. A profit would be a good thing for you.... Though don't knock breaking even... That's an improvement from past years.

"This is not a military mission: failing to capture a portal does not cost human lives but prioritizing the game over safe operation of the aircraft will."

Reversal
#Shonin #LasVegas
21 February 2015

Anomaly fielding is like a game of chess. Launch your plan too soon and you give your opponent time to organize a defense and take it down. Execute too late and you’ll be trying to climb out from under your opponent’s field instead. For Shōnin Las Vegas, the Enlightenment attacked first, beating out the resistance fielding operations by less than an hour. Suddenly, Resistance leadership is scrambling to figure out how the field went up and how to get it down in time.

The first anchor was in the frigid North reaches of Saskatchewan. In an epic mission, four highly-prepared Enlightened agents trekked miles in sub-zero temperatures to establish the anchor. A feat so arduous, it nearly took one of their lives. This portal was legit.

The second anchor was at the Trinity test site in White Sands, New Mexico. These portals are only accessible to the general public once a year. A few months ago, a private tour of resistance agents was able to capture all the portals less the one used in this operation: the road was washed out.

The final anchor was at the Skunkworks in Palmdale, California. This portal is inaccessible to the general public with legal authority to shoot trespassers. An employee of the facility took advantage of this fact to establish an “untouchable” anchor.

The Enlightenment knows the Californian Resistance has incredible resources and clearly planned to thwart them. They knew we have multiple pilots and sought to deny us that advantage. Fortunately, our opponent suffers from an inability to read aviation charts. White Sands is deep within restricted airspace (making it completely inaccessible) but Palmdale is protected by nothing more than the Class D controlled airspace around its airfield, no different than any other minor towered airfield.

I am a very casual player. Before Shōnin, it has been weeks since I last touched the scanner. However, I have a very unique ability: I happen to be the pilot who flew +David Bauman when he took out the field anchored at Point Sur. When I awoke Saturday morning, I didn’t even know Shõnin was about to start. The Resistance had been desperately seeking a means to bring down the Enlightenment field and this brought them to me.

I was quickly brought into the emergency planning channels. Once all the necessary flight planning had been completed, I headed off to the airport to start the preflight inspections while my WSO (weapon systems officer), +Tash Hepting, made the long trip from his house to the airport in South Bay. Once everything was in place, we started the engine, relayed our intentions to the tower, and took off a little before noon.

When most people think of airplanes, they think of jets. A light aircraft is not a jet. It has a reciprocating engine, just like a car. Burns gasoline, just like a car. Travels at 200 mph...quite a bit faster than a car, but not as fast as a jet. From the airfield in South Bay to the target portal, it will take us over two hours. Along the way, I’m practicing my technique to hit a ground target while Tash is getting his equipment ready. He has come to this with full determination: satellite modems, signal amplifiers, everything one could imagine. This mission will not fail on his account. Trickles of information come in from the ground. We lost the first measurement but by only a handful of points. The field is the only thing preventing a resistance victory.

As we close in on the target portal, I slow down to 88 mph indicated (which, after factoring in density altitude and tailwind, still comes out to over 115 mph on the ground) and Tash starts providing real time estimates to the Resistance. We could be there in time for the third measurement, but definitely before the fourth. Instructions are disseminated to Team captains: start gathering the very portal keys Enlightenment agents are unwisely discarding.

Around the third measurement, we make our first pass over the target portal. Unfortunately, a glitch in the communications gear causes a signal loss right in front of the portal. Our first attempt is a failure and the Resistance is forced to enter the third measurement still covered in slime. The original plan, in case of failure, was to continue onto the destination airport, refuel, and make a second attempt on return to South Bay. Given the nature of our failure, this plan had to be discarded: we learned nothing from the first pass.

After a few minutes, I gathered enough courage to key up the mic and nervously ask ATC for permission to circle back. Without any hesitation or concern, the friendly controller gave me the all-clear and we circled back for our second pass. This time, with just 20 minutes left before the final measurement, Tash’s ADA hit home and the field collapsed. +William Olsen, positioned deep in the California desert, threw a blocker to drive the final nail into the coffin.

Vegas exploded into a chorus of cheers. The field, which all-but-guaranteed an enlightenment win just moments before, was gone. Resistance captains ordered their teams to link all the things, using the very keys enlightened agents were discarding just minutes before. The timing was classic Hollywood. It could not get better if one tried. And with the mission finished, we continued to our destination airport to rest, eat, and go on standby.

The final scores were announced: the resistance took Las Vegas by 50 points, exactly half the points the enlightenment would have earned had the field survived the fourth and final measurement. Our operation singlehandedly snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. We were the heroes of the hour and our channels of communication were clogged with cheers and praise.

When deciding our next course of action, I explained that it would be three hours back to South Bay but only one hour if we continued onto Vegas. We decide that we might as well make an appearance at the Resistance after-party and learn just how things turned out on the ground. 

Upon landing at Henderson, the very same Bill who closed off the Enlightenment’s only chance to rethrow their field, arrived to take us to the after party. Tash, already a notable fixture in the Resistance was recognized immediately. He quickly diverted attention to me and I was soon regaled with drink offers, women flashing their breasts, and stories of just how incredible it was on the ground when the field went down. I finally had the opportunity to meet the other infamous Resistance pilot, +Jeremy Angel, and we nerded out on airplanes for a while.

Unfortunately, I was required to turn down the drink offers. The FAA has strict rules regarding private pilot compensation and I was planning to fly out the next day. Hopefully no one was insulted. Of course, storms followed me into Vegas, so I was trapped there for an extra two days. And those two nights? What happens in Vegas...

I also would like to thank +Patti Beadles for letting me crash on her hotel room couch, +Cynthia Clark for driving me around town, +Steve Finch for getting me back to the airport, and all the Resistance agents in Las Vegas who turned this into an epic story instead of just a cool one.

My little soapbox: While leading to great stories, airplanes should not be a required tool for remaining competitive in Ingress. Two of the portals used in this field are on secured military facilities completely closed to the general public. While I lack strong feelings regarding the existence of such portals, I become profoundly annoyed when they are used to adversely affect the gameplay of tens of thousands of players who have literally no recourse. Stories should be about how ordinary people accomplished incredible (or at least creative) feats, not how a defense contractor shut down half the US from his desk portal.

To aspiring skygressors: FLY THE AIRPLANE. The first, second, and third responsibility of the PIC (Pilot In Command) is the safe conduct of the flight. I had literally nothing to do with Ingress during this flight. The game was purely the responsibility of my passenger who is depending on me to get him back home safely. This is not a military mission: failing to capture a portal does not cost human lives but prioritizing the game over safe operation of the aircraft will.___"This is not a military mission: failing to capture a portal does not cost human lives but prioritizing the game over safe operation of the aircraft will."

Why "Free-Range" Parenting Should Just Be Called "Parenting"
"In Austin, Texas, last year, Child Protective Services showed up after a 6-year-old was reported to be playing alone in a field 150 yards from his house"  (http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2015/02/18/384050825/kids-solo-playtime-unleashes-free-range-parenting-debate).

Many have suspected this trend towards today's overprotectionism of our kids comes largely from a 24/7 news media that is eager to publicize every scary kidnapping that occurs. A string of unrelated abductions in the 1980s lead to new laws being passed and an increased (over?)awareness of the crime by the general public. But how prevalent are they? One problem is that we don't keep track of these stats nationally as a matter of course.

Why "Free-Range" Parenting Should Just Be Called "Parenting"

Many have suspected this trend towards today's overprotectionism of our kids comes largely from a 24/7 news media that is eager to publicize every scary kidnapping that occurs. A string of unrelated abductions in the 1980s lead to new laws being passed and an increased (over?)awareness of the crime by the general public. But how prevalent are they? One problem is that we don't keep track of these stats nationally as a matter of course. 

Definitions, Please
Before diving into numbers, to help us understand those values, let's make sure we're all on the same page regarding the phenomena in question. Non-family abductions are generally viewed as any time a stranger or slight acquaintance holds a child (0-17) against his will, keeps a child from returning to a caretaker (even merely delaying that return, and even if the child does not object), or takes a child for purposes of assault, abuse, or ransom. This can include the stereotypical kidnapping (like we tend to see in movies), but is much more commonly an instance of a minor being detained for some short period of time and then being released. More definitions are available at https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/ojjdp/196467.pdf.

What Do the Data Say?
The highest estimate of non-family abductions (including typical kidnappings) is 7 incidents per 100,000 children, or a probability of 0.00007 (http://www.unh.edu/ccrc/pdf/MC4.pdf). And that's based on data from the 1970s and 1980s (shockingly, no newer estimates are available). Given that overall crime rates have dropped substantially since then, it's likely that estimate far exceeds the likelihood of abductions today.

Moreover, it's primarily older teenagers -- minors we generally need to trust to go places by themselves -- who are abducted by strangers and slight acquaintances. Younger children (those under 12) stand a much lower risk:
0-5 yrs......7%
6-11 yrs....12%
12-14 yrs...22%
15-17 yrs...59%
Source: https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/ojjdp/196467.pdf

So What?
Overall, the risk of a child under 12 being taken from a sidewalk or public place is incredibly small. It is far smaller than the largest causes of children deaths: car accidents and drowning.^

Given the incredibly small risk, why are we trusting our kids to do things on their own so much less today? Is it simply explained by media hype over these terrible, yet rare events? Is it some deeply set psychological reaction to being the first generation of latchkey kids? Is it something else entirely? I don't know...and it doesn't appear that anyone else completely does yet, either.

I hope the conclusion we can draw, though, is that we should be trusting our kids to actually use the skills we've taught them. You know, like don't cross the street against the light. Look both ways before crossing. Don't talk to strangers. Don't get in vans driven by guys offering free candy. And so on. If we've done a good job at instilling in them these basic survival skills -- and we have, haven't we? -- why are we so hesitant to let them use them?

A Personal Example
The graphic attached to this post represents my own data. Before I go any further, please let me ask that this not be seen as an invitation to praise or critique my or my wife's parenting; it's just an example that I think illustrates a pretty typical pattern from one generation to the next (and not just in the US: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-462091/How-children-lost-right-roam-generations.html).

What the graphic shows on the left, under "1975," is my daily half-mile walk to school as a 6-year-old 1st-grader (of course, it was up-hill both ways) as well as my "range" -- the area in my neighborhood I was free to go explore and play in without constant adult supervision. Note it covers about half a square mile

On the right, under "2015," are two similar maps for my 10-year-old daughter (her mom and I are debating this issue, with me being more on the longer-leash side and my wife being on the "but the danger!" side). Walking less than a quarter-mile to visit the public library (in a rather safe neighborhood) isn't something she feels confident enough to do yet (and her mom's concerns reinforce that), and that worries me -- are we going to be accompanying her down to the library when she's 13? 17? 25?

The Need for Risk-Taking
There's a lot of science that suggests kids need some risk in their lives. And no, facing the level boss on that Wii game with only 35% health left doesn't count. In fact, even purposefully "dangerous" playgrounds are springing up in some places (e.g. The Land:  http://www.theatlantic.com/features/archive/2014/03/hey-parents-leave-those-kids-alone/358631/). 

Maybe we should give them a little more risk than we (some of us) have been. No, chainsaw-juggling is out, and running with scissors is still a bad idea, but maybe playing in those woods down the street or the park two blocks away where they can't be seen 100% of the time won't be the end of the world.

In Summary...
To be clear, I'm not trying to minimize the significance of abductions -- they are horrific and, as a parent, I can't imagine the nightmare of being helpless while believing your child is in mortal danger. 

What I am hoping is that a clearer idea of the actual risk -- which seems incredibly small -- will give parents a little more confidence to let their children experience greater autonomy and accept a little more responsibility. That should support our general goal of developing members of society who are better able to cope with responsibility, to more reasonably make risk vs. reward assessments, and to envision themselves accomplishing things on their own. I hope we can all agree those are admirable traits we dream of seeing one day in all our children.

So Capriole had been outside for a little while. It's cold outside.
Hunter covered her up with blankets to make sure she was "warm and cozy" - he is a very thoughtful little boy
