After aiding Dr. Kureze in their reassembly of the Gell-O media object, recovered from the Portal Network following Phase 1, the Enlightened victory in Phase 2 of the Kureze Effect Series has led us to the discovery of a second media object:
Alongside a message from K:
As you may know, the Kureze Effect is one of four temporal Seasons: January-March; April-June; July-September; October-December. Each Season is connected; each Season affects the others that follow. Cause and effect. I’ve received a clue to the name of the April-June Anomaly Season, and I could use your help deciphering what it means:
Principal Inventory Number 8525
“Les murs ont des oreilles.”
Share your investigation results by sharing photos, videos, footage, and situation reports with NIA and other XM Sensitives on social media with hashtags #Ingress #KurezeEffect or the Ingress Community Forum for research archives.
Stay tuned for further updates. We will need your help again in the Kureze Effect Finale.
As always, please remember to be aware of your surroundings. We encourage players to follow local health and safety guidelines when playing Ingress (such as wearing masks and maintaining at least six feet/two meters of distance from other people).

Sure hope S2 cells aren't for phase 3
Some information about Dr. Kureze's fourth clue. It is a french commons sentence, the first word has been considered by the forums engine as an offensive word (which it is not).
The entire sentence can be read as:
“L e s
murs ont des oreilles.”
It means walls have ears.
Next time, list cities, not cells. The cells list doesn't contain any useful info to people not in these cells, because no one will look up where each cell is situated.
In fact it doesn't even tell anything to me as a person who doesn't know their cell name. Also my city is split up between 3 or 4 cells :/
It leads to a painting in the louvre. Room and inventory number.
Ccongratulations to all the enlightened agents of the world triumph more for our faction from Lima Peru Thank you total
@NianticOfficial for "Top 10 Regional Cells with highest percentage of points scored by ENL" , AF09-SIERRA-11 it's res, Marseille score : ENL 0 - RES 6210
The Berenstain Bears
More Battle Beacon Anomaly seasons? Sounds good. Keen to do more when things open up more and I can see other agents.
new anomaly season. I hope no more battle beacons
Don't do it every month. Participation is voluntary, but enthusiastic AGs get tired in both camps. I think I'm exhausted by corona measures
This is from a later book - the one in the picture is N.36 "The Berenstain Bears and the Sitter"
“Many people incorrectly remember the name of the series as the "Berenstein Bears". This confusion has generated multiple explanations of the memories, including an unannounced name change, time travel, or parallel universes, and has been described as an instance of the Mandela effect.”
The N.36 book is actually The Berenstain Bears Don't Pollute (Anymore), I just found the image on the page of the Sitter book and assumed it is coming from it
I’ve received a clue to the name of the April-June Anomaly Season, and I could use your help deciphering what it means:

So the next period is called the cythere effect?
Wow nice to see a close score and ability to contribute to it even if you don't win a site by denying the other team more points and still adding what you do score.
Sadly not a single res actually came out for either event in our region, and one of the next region over they left half way through. Plus side we got a lot of new faces out for them!
So possibly related to earth day in April?
Todavía queda una fase así que no canten victoria Iluminados :)…
Perhaps just Cythera
Does anyone else find it weird that Wikipedia calls this painting, "The Embarkation for Cythera" or "L'embarquement pour Cythère" and the Louvre says, "Pilgrimage to the island of Cythera" or "Pèlerinage à l'île de Cythère"?
Wikipedia even references "Pilgrimage to Cythera" as a similar but different painting.
Added the NIA final report scores and rankings to the (unofficial) scoring sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1AvzAaV7TygwCeDgwQ6rpVd4zvuWC_s4H-T_uh_g8JV0/edit?usp=sharing
To the cities, it shows how much agent deployed beacons helped to bring the score higher and make some sites very recognisable! Hence the change in the rankings from the map info to the final report
Congratulations to all involved and well done!
1305 enl - 0 res
Enhorabuena a los participantes,buen evento y espero veros a todos en la próxima fase.
AF09-SIERRA-11 it's Montpellier.
Marseille is AF09-SIERRA-04
Oh yes correct !
Better list with town :/
So, 2 out of 3 phases have been won by the ENL. Do the ENL have to sweep the 3 phases to win overall? Is Niantic going to say nothing so they can get people to buy more battle beacons for phase 3 and make it a "double jeopardy" situation where the RES can win the overall in a single phase?
If overall the ENL have won already, do we get green XM globally for once? A series medal saying we won like Osiris?
Inquiring minds and such. Feels like when you've won, you really haven't won.
This from media. Note that it's Berenstein instead of Berenstain. And some differences in the contents below.
If we look at the different numbers between Berenstein and Berenstain, these are the numbers 7,11,13,17,19,23,29,31.
If we look at the difference between consecutive numbers, it alternates between +2 and +4, except between 23 and 29, where it's +6, like if the number 25 is missing. Number 25 is The Bad Habit.
Not sure what to do with that though, the words changing from Berenstein -> Berenstain are:
7: Zoo -> Camp
11: Bully -> Money
13: Sleep -> TV
17: Memories -> Manners
19: Horsing -> Girls
23: Dance -> Team
29: Gell-O (a reference to previous media?) -> Gimmies
31: Playtime -> Vacation
These are prime numbers too, and the followings are: 37, 41, 43, 47
We can find more volume of the Berenstain on this image, where numbers 37 are The Trouble with Growups, 41 The Green-Eyed Monster, 43 Count Their Blessings and 47 Lend a Helping Hand
The RES can still win if they win Phase 3 by a larger margin than the ENL's cumulative lead from Phases 1 and 2.
The Louvre mention both titles:
Titre : Pèlerinage à l'île de Cythère // Title: Pilgrimage to the island of Cythera
Autre titre : L'embarquement pour Cythère // Other Title: The Embarkation for Cythera
Testing Les murs ont to see if it gets redacted
