I, an EMT/Paramedic, am now working on rhino conservation. The future will persist.
"I'm Johanna Decker from Germany and I'm an EMT /Paramedic. My passion is wildlife conservation, nature, traveling, and taking photos. Dedicated to rhino conservation."

A Rhino Conservation Seed As A Child.
Once upon a time in Germany, there lived a spirited and unconventional girl named Johanna Decker. From a young age, Johanna was drawn to the wonders of nature and wildlife, eschewing dolls for muddy adventures and outdoor exploration. She possessed a deep love for animals and an insatiable curiosity about the natural world.

After Work Rhino Conservation

"I came to the rescue service by accident and turned my passion into a profession. I love my job, even if it's not always easy."

As she grew older, Johanna's passion for helping others and her desire to make a difference led her on an unexpected path towards rhino conservation. Despite her childhood dreams of becoming a veterinarian or a police officer, Johanna found herself dedicated to the emergency protection of endangered rhinos. Her role as an EMT/Paramedic became a stepping stone that transformed her passion for wildlife into a lifelong mission to rhino conservation.

​​She said: I've been doing this job for 8 years now and it fills me up every day. It makes me happy to be able to help people in difficult situations. It is not always easy to deal with an emergency situation, but at the end of the day you go home with a good feeling.
Johanna discovered that the medical field exemplified the swift and unpredictable nature of life itself. To maintain a healthy work-life balance and give her all to her challenging profession as an EMT, she dedicated her free time to activities that nourished her body and soul, especially rhino conservation. Protecting endangered rhinos, exploring nature, traveling to wildlife habitats, and capturing the beauty of rhinos through photography became her outlets, allowing her to recharge and return to her job with a lifelong passion for rhino conservation.

First emergency

"One of my first real emergencies in the emergency services was giving birth. We have been called to action, the message was severe abdominal pain. When we arrived on site, we found a very distraught man who brought us into the living room to his wife who was lying on the floor. It turned out pretty quickly that she was in labor. Then everything happened very quickly. The amniotic sac had already burst and we could already see the child's head. That's why we decided to have the child on site. Everything went well and since the father was too excited, I was allowed to cut the umbilical cord. Operations like this make the job the people are so grateful for our work."

Johanna not only talks to us about the emergency she encountered in her first job as an EMT, but also shares how the plight of these magnificent rhinos ignited her lifelong dedication to rhino conservation.
She refused to stand idly by while these ancient creatures, who had roamed the earth for millions of years, teetered on the brink of extinction due to the senseless demand for their horns. Be sure of rhino conservation. Rhinos were being slaughtered for their horns, their mothers cruelly taken from them, all for a substance as mundane as keratin—the same material found in our nails and hair. To protect these endangered rhinos, Johanna embarked on a mission to raise awareness about rhino conservation and stop rampant poaching threatening their survival.
"What touched my soul the most was my work with orphan rhinos. These animals lost their mothers to us humans, they had to experience incredible things. All the trauma and suffering, the physical and emotional pain. And yet they allow us as humans to give them the bottle and they trust us again. That's an incredible feeling.So I had to rhino conservation"
With an unwavering determination to protect rhinos, Johanna embarked on a lifelong mission to raise awareness about the rhino poaching crisis and advance rhino conservation. She traveled to Africa, connecting with local communities, interviewing people, and supporting rhino conservation efforts by various organizations. In her encounters with orphaned rhinos, victims of the poaching epidemic, Johanna witnessed both their immense suffering and their remarkable capacity to trust humans once again with the right care and protection. It was a profound experience that evoked a whirlwind of emotions within her—pain, sadness, anger at the cruelty of poachers, but also awe, joy, and happiness from protecting and bonding with these endangered rhinos.

A Love Affair With Rhino Conservation

"My love for rhinos and Africa started very early. My first lamp as a baby was in the shape of a rhino. Since my grandfather lived in Namibia, I was there for the first time when I was 10 years old. And fell in love with the country. I then also volunteered several times in animal sanctuaries. However, the rhinos never really let go of me. It can't be that an animal that has roamed our planet for millions of years is on the brink of extinction just because of its horns. That's why rhino conservation is so imminent."

Johanna worked as a volunteer in a rhino orphanage. It's just amazing, it's not an easy job. She said: You sweat, you get blisters on your hands from shoveling crap, you get up early and you work all day. But when she thinks of rhino conservation, it's worth the effort.
It is a psychological and physical strain, the suffering, the trauma that each of these animals had to go through. Each of these babies is a little miracle in their own way. Every rhino counts. And volunteering is much more than just preparing milk for baby animals. For Johanna, it is her small part to contribute to the preservation of the species. The real heroes for me are the women and men in the APUs who risk their lives day and night. She spoke to the local people and started getting first aid kits for them as they are really needed in the bush. This includes the 10 RHINO RESCUE IFAK Trauma Kit donated by Rhino Rescue. In the worst case, gunshot wounds occur and these wildlife heroes have to be taken care of.This will greatly help the rhino conservation cause.

Unfortunately, in the fight against rhino poaching, a human life does not count for much when measured against the immense profits from rhino horn. On the black market, a single kilogram of rhino horn fetches between 60,000 and 80,000 US dollars due to the unfounded belief in its medicinal properties. That's more than the price of gold or cocaine. To advance rhino conservation and stop this deadly trade threatening their survival, Johanna will not cease her lifelong efforts to raise awareness about rhino poaching, preserve these endangered species, and protect their natural habitats. We urgently need to draw more global attention to this poaching crisis and support organizations dedicated to rhino conservation all over the world.The cause of rhino conservation requires a concerted effort by all.

Rhino Conservation is a Mission

As her lifelong dedication to rhino conservation deepened, Johanna volunteered at a rhino orphanage, witnessing firsthand the immense physical and emotional toll from poaching that these endangered animals endured. Each baby rhino, rescued and orphaned victim of poaching, that she encountered was a testament to resilience in the face of such cruelty, a small miracle in its own right that reignited her drive to stop this deadly trade. Filled with a profound sense of responsibility to protect rhinos, Johanna saw her role in preserving these majestic but threatened creatures as more than just preparing milk bottles. Also, we need to call everyone together rhino conservation. It was her way of contributing to the survival of this species on the brink of extinction, raising awareness about the poaching crisis that endangered their very existence, and ensuring that future generations would still have the opportunity to witness rhinos roaming free in their native habitats. Based on this, rhino conservation is also performed.

Meet Rhino Rescue with Rhino Conservation

"I was very grateful when I received the Rhino Rescue products and brought them to Namibia. I know that the guys in the APU are now optimally equipped for emergencies and that gives me a very good feeling. This is a great help for rhino conservation.I hope they never need to use it, but when are they ready for it? It will help a lot."

For rhino conservation efforts.
Amidst her lifelong dedication to rhino conservation, Johanna never forgot her roots as an EMT/Paramedic. She admired the immense bravery and unwavering commitment of the rangers in the Anti-Poaching Units (APUs), who risked their lives daily to protect endangered rhinos and combat poaching. Johanna was deeply inspired by their passion and fighting spirit in rhino conservation, and she felt profound gratitude for their tireless work on the frontline.
The story of Johanna Decker is a powerful testament to following one's passion for rhino conservation and taking action against this poaching crisis threatening their survival. Rhino conservation also requires a concerted effort. Her journey from a nature-loving child to a passionate wildlife advocate and paramedic exemplifies the transformative impact that individuals can have on protecting rhinos from extinction. Through her lifelong dedication and tireless efforts in raising awareness, Johanna strives to ensure that future generations will still have the opportunity to witness rhinos, these majestic but endangered species, roaming freely in their natural habitats.

And so, Johanna's story continues, as she fearlessly ventures into the unknown, armed with her camera, her compassion, and a determination to protect the precious treasures of our natural world. Continue Rhino conservation career.

2023.06.07 10:17 SupportWorldly4753 Does female best friend(22f) have feelings for me(23m)?

CBF = Childhood Best Friend
I need help to figure out if my female best friend of 16 years, may have feelings for me.
Backstory of our friendship: CBF and I have been friends since I was 6 and she was 5. To be honest I’m not sure how we met, but she recalls that we met while waiting for the school bus. All I know is that shes been part of my life for the past 16 years. We lived in the same neighborhood for 8 years and she lived in the house across from me. We also went to school together, From elementary to high school. Growing up we would get teased by family’s and friends because we were always together. I started to find her attractive during middle school years. One day I was dared to asked her to be my girlfriend for one day by my friends, and she said yes. It was awkward af, we both didn’t have experience in dating since I was in 7th grade and CBF was in the 6th grade. So nothing happened, no kiss, no holding hands. Since we only agreed to date one day, we went back to being friends the next day. Since then no kiss or any sexual act has ever happened between us. We both also dealt with depression when were teenagers. And it didn’t help that her parents and my mom don’t believe in depression, so we relied on each other. We were each other’s rock during our toughest time in life. We also never shared the same circle of friends. She has her own group of friends and I have my own. When we hang out it’s always just the 2 of us. We share our secrets, insecurities and goals with each other. We have a strong friendship bond.
Our rough patch: We had a rough patch when I went away for college. We didn’t talk much in my freshmen and sophomore years. Not until covid hit and I went 100% remotely to finish college. Because of this I moved back to my hometown. She chose to attend in our local hometown college and we reconnected when I moved back in my junior year. Since then we’ve been inseparable again.
Present: Were in our early twenties now, we’ve both been in relationships with other people and had flings with other people. We’ve always supported each other when it came to relationships, career, and Mental health. We also talked about our sex life, we’re very transparent with each other. We also never met each other’s bf/gf. We’re also only very comfortable to be vulnerable in each other’s presence. We grew up kinda poor, and we’re both the oldest sibling in our families. Our hispanic parents were hard on us and we had to grow up quick take care of our little siblings. Due to this we don’t have a very healthy relationship with our parents, so we rely on each other for emotional support. Also to add we rarely do physical contact, we rarely hug each other. A couple years ago we had the “talk” where we asked each other if we had feelings for each other. At the time we both said no. I lied, I did have feelings for her but I didn’t want to lose my CBF. So I buried those feelings, if she’s happy with just being friends with me then I’m okay with that. We hang out once or twice a week. But we constantly call or text each other.
This is where the mix signals start to show. In 2022 we started to casually see people. We’ve always supported each other when we started to date other people. But this time, she seemed jealous. She would make snarky comments about the person I was seeing. She would always say how I can do better. She would constantly message me when ever I went on a date with my partner. This seemed way out of character for her. On my birthday, my CBF made me a cake, made muffins and bought flowers for me. She also took me out to eat that day. Now here’s another big mix signal, while she was seeing her fling, she told me that he was jealous of me because CBF wouldn’t stop talking about me to him. One day CBF and I made plans to go to the beach at night and stargaze together. But I also invited my male best friend to hang out with us. Towards the end of the night my male best friend asked if CBF and I dated before. I said no, we’re just friends. He said that we playfully flirt with each other and that I should ask her out. Recently we’ve been joking around of how we act like a married couple, I would joke with her that I want a divorce and her response would be “never, you’re stuck with me forever.” CBF has also started to be more physical with me. When walking side by side she would bump into me with her shoulder constantly, she would also bump her foot with mine accidentally underneath the table to many times. A few days ago we shared a electric scooter together on her recommendation, and her butt was literally touching my crotch. She also recently started to call me sweetheart, and compliments me on my looks saying how cute I look with a beanie. One time we were thinking of moving in together, and her mom joked that we would hook up if we did. Usually CBF would make a gross comment about it or quickly shit the idea down, but this time she said “if it happens it happens.” My male best friend says that she definitely has feelings for me. He says by the way she looks at me and playfully flirts with me. So now I need other peoples opinions on this, does my CBF have feelings for me or am I just overthinking. I would hate to ruin this friendship due to misinterpretation. She’s one of the most important people in my life.
TLDR: Is my female best friend of 16 years giving me mix signals that she may have feelings for me. She playfully flirts with me and has started to call me sweetheart. Am i being oblivious or am I misinterpreting our friendship?

2023.06.07 09:41 powerhouse_22 Good Piercing Shops in Brum

I recently moved to Birmingham, and I haven’t found any good shops yet. I’m a little scared to go to any other shop than the one in my hometown, as I’ve had bad experiences with dodgy shops. Are there any shops, hopefully close to Selly Oak or city centre, that have a good reputation and good quality of care?

2023.06.07 09:36 TheShadowspawn Chapter Fifty-One – Negotiations

Commander Beckett sits on the bridge of the TSF Trailblazer, recovering after a long day of combat drills with the new recruits.
Commander Beckett: “At least this lot is semi-competent.”
First Officer: “Agreed, Commander. I remember the last group they sent us. Hopeless, the lot of them.”
CB: “… weren’t you a member of the last lot?”
FO: “…”
Ensign: “Commander, I have something on long-range scanners.”
CB: “On-screen.”
The viewscreen lights up and shows a number of ships exiting FTL.
Ensign: “… I count 38 ships, Commander. Trajectory indicates they’re heading straight for us.”
CB, over internal comms: “… all hands, battle-stations! I repeat, all hands to battle-stations! This is not a drill!”
Klaxons alarm throughout the ship, as everyone on board makes ready to combat.
FO: “… the designs of the ships, and on-board IFF’s are indicative of Keltiss, Commander.”
CB: “Keltiss. We haven’t had any interactions with them before. Why have they shown up in force?”
FO: “Unknown.”
Ensign: “Commander, they’re hailing us.”
CB: “On-screen.”
The viewscreen image of the Keltiss ships is replaced with the image of a large humanoid reptilian creature, wearing a large headdress made of what appears to be the bones of a much larger creature.
Keltiss Speaker: “TSF Trailblazer, I am the designated Speaker for the Scattered Tribes of Keltiss.”
CB: “Designated Speaker, I am Commander Nathaniel Beckett, of the TSF Trailblazer. For what reason do you approach us?”
KS: “Commander Beckett, we would speak with an authority of Terra, and have gathered information that identifies you as such an individual. As promised by the War-kin witness, we have come to forge an alliance with Humanity, as our honour demands.”
CB: “… I am not someone that has the proper authority to negotiate an alliance between our two peoples’. Please allow me to contact Terran High Command, and we can have a diplomat and negotiator arrive within the day to facilitate the proceedings.”
KS: “The one to negotiate the alliance has been decided.”
CB: “… excuse me?”
KS: “The Keltiss demand the one named Human Dave. He has proven to be a trustworthy individual of your species, and his honour is not in question. We will open negotiations with him as the voice of Humanity.”
CB, to himself: “… the fuck have you done now, Dave?”
Human Dave gets up from his crouched position, and stretches his back, causing cracking and popping sounds to echo out in the room.
Captain hears the sound coming from the engine room and rushes in, expecting the worst.
Alien Captain: “Human Dave, what was that sound?”
Human Dave: “Captain? Oh, that was just my back.”
AC: “Your back? Human Dave, are you telling me that your spine made several cracking noises? Are you injured?”
HD: “Oh, no, Captain. My back was just a little stiff from being hunched over for so long.”
AC: “… I take it that this is a common occurrence amongst humans?”
HD: “You would be correct, Captain. Think of it like realigning my spine into its natural state after being in an unnatural state for too long.”
The conversation is interrupted by Human Dave’s implant sounding out a notification.
HD: “Oh, I got a message. Hang on, Captain.”
Captain waves his arm to confirm that he does not mind.
The voice coming from the pre-recorded message is loud enough to echo out in the engine room.
Commander Beckett: “DAVID FUCKING ANDERS!”
Both Captain and Human Dave are surprised by the volume of Commander Beckett’s voice.
AC: “…”
HD: “…”
AC: “… you did tell Commander Beckett that the Keltiss intended to forge an alliance with Humanity, did you not?”
HD: “In fact, Captain, I did. Sent that particular recording to him the day that it happened. Maybe he hasn’t had time to watch it?”
AC: “… should we…?”
HD: “Might be best to get to the Trailblazer as quick as we can. Who knows what’ll happen between Commander Beckett and any Keltiss War-kin without any context.”
AC: “Agreed.”
Captain activates his comms.
AC: “Pilot Reeda, how far are we from the TSF Trailblazer?”
Pilot Reeda: “… a quarter cycle off-course, Captain, but our cargo is indicated non-urgent, so I hope your clients will mind if we take a little detour.”
AC: “Pilot Reeda, should we not hope that they will not mind a detour?”
PR: “I don’t much care what they think, Captain. I just didn’t know we were a human delivery service.”
AC: “Pilot Reeda, Ship is not a delivery service for humans.”
PR: “Really? Then why is it that every time something happens, it’s because of Human Dave?”
AC: “…”
PR: “Exactly.”
HD: “You know I can hear you, right, Reeda'Tila-Lasoran?”
PR: “Yes, Human Dave. That was the intention.”
HD: “Would you just fly the damn ship to the Trailblazer? I’ve got a very angry Commander Beckett to deal with, and you delaying us isn’t going to make things any better.”
PR: “… so, delaying things would make things worse?”
HD: “I will come up there and bite you, Reeda'Tila-Lasoran!”
AC: “Pilot Reeda, please redirect our course to the Trailblazer.”
PR: “… understood, Captain.”
Commander Beckett basically yells at Human Dave the moment Ship opens up a communication channel with the Trailblazer.
HD: “… nice to see you too, Commander. We were in the middle of a cargo run when we got your message, and you haven’t been checking your messages.”
Commander Beckett glares at Human Dave.
CB: “What the Hell are you on about now, Anders?”
HD: “I sent you very lengthy recordings regarding not one, but two encounters we had with the Keltiss. The most recent one was about how they wanted to forge an alliance with us following the Hunt we participated in.”
CB: “…”
HD: “I mean, I guess after this, they’ll go to the Cradelian cradle-world to forge an alliance with them as well, because it was actually Captain that won the Hunt.”
AC: “Actually, it was this creature that did the majority of the hunting.”
Captain points at the Viscer-Tel on his shoulder, who puts its wing over Captain’s head.
CB: “Regardless of who did what, we have a rather large contingent of Keltiss in one of our main conference rooms, all eager to speak with you, Anders.”
HD: “Me?”
CB: “Yes, you. They want you to be the one to negotiate the terms of the alliance on behalf of Terra.”
A look of shock appears on Human Dave’s face, followed by a look of resignation as he begins to realise what kind of situation he has walked into.
HD: “… ah, crap.”
Captain puts a hand on Human Dave’s shoulder, smiling widely.
AC: “Good luck, Human Dave. Better you than me.”
Human Dave slowly turns to Captain, a look of smugness replacing the earlier look of resignation.
HD, grinning: “You do realise you’ll most likely have to do this for your people, right, Captain?”
An expression of confusion appears on Captain’s face, before a look of horror replaces it; now realising that the success of the Hunt was on his shoulders, and the added responsibility of representing his species with the Keltiss opposite.
AC: “… ah, crap.”

2023.06.07 09:34 CallMeVic96 Nerve Pain and GYN is unavailable

I started Nexplanon in 2019. Only side effects were the irregular periods, at least that I remember. Other than that, I loved not having to worry about it. I got it taken out in August last year. It had migrated, so the doctor had a bit of a hard time getting it out. That was kind of a painful process, but once it was out, they inserted the new one and I was fine fora bit.
A couple days ago, I started noticing some weird sensations going on in my arm. I felt numbness and tingling in my left arm, from my shoulder to my hand. I sit at a computer all day at work, so I figured maybe it was some kind of pinched nerve from doing the same repetitive movements with a keyboard and mouse all the time. The Nex didn't even really cross my mind until I went to Urgent Care on Friday. They had me do some stretching and gripping tests. I still had full strength in the arm, and could use it like normal. They thought it was probably a pinched nerve but they told me to definitely consult with my doctor because the Nexplanon could be potentially an issue too, and prescribed me with 500mg Naproxen.
I've been taking it for a couple of days and it's been helping but it feels like the nerve pain has been getting worse. And now I'm 95% sure it's the nexplanon. I called my GYN, and I already had an appointment set up for July, but I needed something soon. They offered me a date for the 28th, but that's ironically the same time I'll be out of town. I asked for something sooner and they just told me that my doctor wasn't available, and that she was the only one who could remove it (which I honestly don't believe, because there's several doctors in that office who I'm sure have experience with this). I explained that I was in pain and that it was bothersome and they just kept telling me that she doesn't have anything available. I ended up making an appointment with Planned Parenthood to get an emergency removal the week before I leave town, since nothing else seemed possible. Aren't they supposed to take you in at anytime if it's an emergency?
I'm calling the GYN office AGAIN in a few hours to get them to see me sooner because I just got off the phone with another doctor from that same office who was on call and was like "they told you to wait a month and you're in pain? I don't believe that". She then advised me to call back in the morning because they have to take it out if it's causing a reaction. I'm still not sure if it is the nexplanon or not but I don't wanna wait any longer.
Part of me wishes I had just gotten it taken out sooner, but I have not had any issues up until now since the removal. And the timing is just super bad. I have so much anxiety over it and didn't really know where else to get it off my chest but here. I'm going to be really disappointed if it is the Nex.

2023.06.07 09:21 GorKoresh 32M. Had a laparoscopic appendectomy about 50 hours ago. A small amount clear/yellow fluid in my belly button when changing bandaids. ER or wait until urgent care opens in the morning?

32M, 6'. 185 lbs, no smoking, drinking, or drugs.
I had a laparoscopic appendectomy Sunday night. Tonight I showered and changed my bandaids for the second time since leaving. The two incisions on my abdomen showed nothing concerning but there was a fair amount of runny cleayellow fluid in my bellybutton, presumably from the incision there. I've read online that this is a sign of infection. Do I need to go to the ER now or should I wait until the regular doctor's office opens in about 6 hours?

2023.06.07 09:21 tanzimat14 Beware of Resume.io’s deceptive practices

Hey everyone ,
I recently had a distressing experience with the popular CV-building website, Resume.io, and I felt compelled to share my story with you all as a cautionary tale. It all began when I was urgently searching for templates to create my CV and stumbled upon Resume.io. Intrigued by their promise of a free option, I decided to give it a try.
I spent nearly 30 minutes meticulously crafting my CV on their website, carefully tailoring it to suit my needs. When it came time to download the finished product, I was unexpectedly met with a subscription offer for a 7-day trial, priced at $2.95. Naturally, I was furious to discover that the supposedly "free" option was nothing more than a bait-and-switch tactic.
Feeling frustrated and realizing that I had already invested a significant amount of time on their platform, I reluctantly decided to pay the subscription fee. However, I failed to fully comprehend the implications of my decision. Little did I know that once the trial period ended, I would be automatically charged a staggering $24.95.
To make matters worse, I had registered using my Google account, which I rarely check. Consequently, I completely forgot about the subscription and only remembered when I noticed the charge on my bank statement. The timing couldn't have been worse, as I am currently jobless and struggling to make ends meet. In my country, $25 is equivalent to four or five days' worth of meals, making this unexpected expense a significant burden.
Seeking a resolution, I reached out to Resume.io's support desk, explaining my situation and expressing my disappointment with their deceptive practices. However, their response was disheartening. They outright refused to provide a refund, leaving me feeling helpless and cheated.
Has anyone else faced a similar situation with Resume.io or any other CV-building websites? How did you handle it? Are there any avenues I can explore to potentially recover my hard-earned money?

Are you considering investing in a villa? Undoubtedly, buying a villa is a substantial investment that requires careful consideration. From budget constraints to the desire for ample space and exceptional amenities, several factors exist. So, why should you choose a villa over an apartment with a lesser budget?
When you think of a villa, it evokes a sense of home, a place that encompasses a beautiful garden, vast open spaces, and abundant room to breathe. It's a sanctuary that allows you to create lasting memories or build a flourishing garden. Villas often remind people of their cherished homes in their hometowns, providing a sense of nostalgia and familiarity. Moreover, villas offer unparalleled privacy, nestled within gated communities, ensuring a tranquil environment exclusively for you and your loved ones.
These reasons alone highlight the significance of investing in a villa. While the concept of building a home from scratch has diminished, purchasing a villa from a reputable builder presents numerous advantages.

2023.06.07 09:04 TheGeekyZoologist Jurassic World: The Hegemony of Biosyn (JWD rewrite) - Act III

See the previous posts: https://www.reddit.com/JurassicPark/comments/1419mpy/jurassic_world_the_hegemony_of_biosyn_dominion/ https://www.reddit.com/JurassicPark/comments/142b35e/jurassic_world_the_hegemony_of_biosyn_jwd_rewrite/

Act III - The Gathering of the Clouds

Mia Everett
Visually confirming Rainn's revelation, Victoria is shown in a cage inside Amelia Everett's lab, within Biosyn's Citadel. Mia does her best to comfort the scared and depressed Achillobator and her motivations are explored shortly after. It's revealed that due to her experience within the team who made the Indominus and the Indoraptor, Biosyn tasked her with reviving InGen's IBRIS program by breeding raptors with high obedience potential. However, none of the achillobators cloned by Biosyn proved to be trainable enough for the program's ambitions (even though they attempted to mimic Owen's experience by having keepers being there at the animals' birth), which displeased Dodgson and the other higher-ups, who are now favouring another research team, who focuses on a more intrusive way of controlling dinosaurs. Basically treated as a second-class researcher amidst a rather toxic work environment, Mia became desperate enough to hire poachers to capture Blue, which she intended to breed with their achillobators in order to finally have trainable individuals. As Victoria is not sexually mature, Mia is in front of a considerable setback and fears that Dodgson will pull the plug due to her lack of results, especially in this troubled period for Biosyn.
The tying noose
The next day, the intel collected by the UN agents (people involved in the Black Market, Biosyn's connections with it) are sent to the nearby countries, including Italy, where an arrest warrant is launched against Kayla.
On his side, Isaac Gibbon is contacted by Bigelow who tells him about the debacle of their mission in Malta, saying that Claire and Owen saved the grey guards from disaster. He orders her to stay in Italy for the moment and wait for new orders. Shortly receives, he receives a candidate for a desk job in the DSD: It's Franklin. Gibbon tells Franklin he heard about his bravery during the 2019 incidents and his past connection with InGen (Before the DPG, Franklin worked for it as an IT Technician), before asking questions about Claire as he is aware that she collaborated with him not only on some occasions in the past few years but also in the 2019 Costa Rican incident, where Franklin was the couple's companion while they were running from InGen's agents and the authorities.
The inhabitants and tourists of the Croatian seaside city of Dubrovnik are surprised when a Biosyn Quetzalcoatlus descends upon the old town and starts attacking people. As a joke similar to one in TLW with the Japanese businessman and his reference to Godzilla, some extra could yell in Valyrian "I left Westeros because of this!" or "By the Seven, not again!" (Dubrovnik was one of Game of Thrones' filming location).
Ramsay's email
In a manner similar to the Hawaii attack scene in Gareth Edwards' Godzilla, the Dubrovnik scene cuts just as the Quetzal swoops on the bystanders and we are now in the bar of Biosyn's employee village. Wu is watching the news of the Dubrovnik attack on the TV (there is even a declaration from Zoe Murdoch, in which she denies the pterosaur came from Auronzo's Sanctuary and was probably created by a rival company who somehow put their hands upon Biosyn Quetzalcoatlus DNA. In the bar, someone whisper that one of their Quetzals did escaped from the valley thanks to the temporary deactivation of the invisible fence system and that Dodgson has launched an investigation to know who's responsible) when he receives a mysterious email from Ramsay, which includes the name of some woman. Wu search it on the internet and ends up on IMDB where he discovers that the adult "Charlotte" on the videos is actually an actress who lives in London.
In Rome, early in the morning, Kayla is arrested in her flat by the police as she is accused of illegal smuggling.
Following all the incidents in the Alps, the clash in the Sabine Hills and the recent Dubrovnik attack, people gets pissed at Biosyn and protests occur in several locations, including Rome. In the Italian Ministry of the Interior, Viscontini has an argument with Pazzi, declaring that they need to take severe actions against Biosyn but the minister retorts that taking large-scale actions against the corporation might trigger a whole deal of undesirable consequences, including deteriorating US-Italian relations due to the close ties between Biosyn and the US government. He won't risk that just because of some rumours, weak proof and small incidents. Viscontini retorts that soon, Biosyn might have an angry mob showing at its gates with the goal of driving it out of Italy.
Following Vuillier's instructions, Claire, Owen, Nyamu and Dougal leave Malta the same day and fly to the Eternal City, where they have to meet Viscontini in the AISI headquarters. There, they have a video call with Vuillier. He and Viscontini wants to send the trio of WDMC agents to Auronzo Valley so they can infiltrate Biosyn's facility, find compromising information and transmit them to the Italian authorities, hoping to finally convince Pazzi and the rest of the government to take action against Biosyn. However, one of the agents points out that they will need an entrance ticket as one doesn't simply walk into Auronzo, since the borders of Biosyn's lands are guarded and monitored while some people disappeared after going too close from the Sanctuary (anti-Biosyn activists, reckless adventurers, Grendel Corporation's spies, others from the AISI's and Austrian government). Viscontini declare they might have that ticket.
We cut to Kayla in her prison cell. The guard announces she has visit and she is brought to a room where Viscontini and Dougal waits for her. The head of the AISI and the WDMC agent then negotiate with her: In exchange for her freedom, she will bring Dougal, Claire and Owen to Biosyn's Sanctuary. However, Viscontini precise he'll have her hunted down if she ever betrays them.
Kayla raises the fact that she can't show up at Auronzo like this and needs a motive. Viscontini and Dougal then talk about the animals seized in Malta's black market.
Theo's Mission
That day, Wu summons Theo, explain the whole issue with the fake Charlotte and ask him to go to London, find the actress and question her about the videos so they can have proofs to show Maisie, who started to really become insufferable because of Dodgson's bad influence (in that part of the story, one of the few scenes where she's likeable is one where she and Drummond bonds over the common passion for dinosaurs). The ex-mercenary soon leaves Auronzo, taking a bus for Venice in the nearest village while Wu explains to Pellegrino and Dodgson that Theo had urgent family matters to deal with in the UK.
Leaving San Francisco
Desiring to supervise the Dolomites Crisis more closely, Vuillier fly to Italy.
Nine containers
As evidence of Biosyn's possible connections to the Maltese black market has been discussed on the news, Dodgson knows it's a matter of time before Vuillier, the Italians or the Austrians send people in Auronzo and expose Biosyn's misdeeds.
We then follow Pellegrino's POV as she oversees the exit of nine large mysterious containers from the Citadel and their departure from the airstrip just outside the valley. One of her subordinates asks what's inside and she answers that she has no idea, with Dodgson only giving her a series of instructions. They watch the containers being flown abroad.
The following day, Pellegrino speak about it to Wu and other employees with anti-Dodgson sentiments like Drummond. She notices that Wu is uncomfortable as they talk about it and realize he must be hiding something. Ramsay, who just arrived from the US in preparation for a big corporate event in the Citadel, almost surprise their discussion. As they're not sure if they can trust him or not, they pretend it's nothing. Wu then phones Theo and asks him about his secret mission's progress.
In London, Theo finds the actress from the videos and initially posing as a reporter, filming her in an interview, he then ask her questions about the videos and after some hesitations, she concedes to give him answers and reveals among other things that the shooting occurred a few months ago in some local warehouse, that the director of those videos is none other than Colin Trevorrow (who, desperate for a job after the debacle of the Jurassic World film, accepted to participate to that project, oblivious that Biosyn was behind it since a dummy company took care of the production).
Vuillier arrives in Rome and meets with his agents, Nyamu and Viscontini in one of the AISI headquarters' conference rooms, where a map of Auronzo Valley and its surroundings has been laid. Kayla is also there and offscreen, our characters talk about the plan.
At the end of the meeting, everyone but Vuillier and Viscontini leave the room. Both have a secret conversation during which the Italian say that the Grey Guard's Mediterranean Company, supported by the Austrians and secretly by him (as he fears that Biosyn has informers within the Italian government), are deployed in one of the villages near Auronzo, and is supposed to act as a Plan B should the Claire-Owen-Dougal trio fail, by taking a secret path through an old mine and a mountain pass before breaking into Biosyn's citadel. The WDMC agents don't know that and when Vuillier ask why, Viscontini answers that it's better that way (should the agents be captured ant tortured, they won't tell Biosyn that there is a second team) and that the secret path isn't safer as one of his spy was killed by some creature after taking it and arriving in sight of the valley. He thinks that a small dozen of grey guards have better chances surviving the pass' guardian(s) than three civilian agents.
To the Dolomites
The next day, in the middle of the morning, Kayla is preparing her plane in some airstrip near Rome and the seized creature from the black market is loaded in the hold (I have no idea which species to choose). Equipped by the Italians, Claire, Owen and Dougal say farewell to Vuillier, Nyamu and Viscontini. The Frenchman tells Claire that it's time to unleash the She-wolf upon Dodgson but Claire correct him by saying "Not the She-wolf. The Dragon." (in this AU, she has a particular connection with the dragon-like Indominus), implying she'll get the mission done whatever it takes. He and the other two men wish them good luck and the trio of WDMC agents climb aboard the plane. They soon take off.
Biosyn's aerial defense
Kayla's plane arrives in sight of the mountains which delimit Biosyn's Sanctuary. Informed of their mission by Vuillier and Viscontini, one of the grey guards is watching the plane through his binoculars as it passes over the village where they are staying.
Kayla is soon contacted by the Citadel's control room as they detected the aircraft on their radars and they ask her why she's coming. The pilot answer that she collected an animal which might interest them (she told the WDMC agents and the Italians that Biosyn doesn't have this particular species in their Sanctuary) and ask to land on their airstrip. While the Biosyn employees discuss, the plane is about to enter Auronzo Valley by the east, as that part of the sanctuary is the furthest from most of the buildings (while the airstrip is in the northernmost parts of Biosyn's lands, beyond the mountains with the frozen dam lake) and thus where Claire, Owen and Dougal has the best chances of landing unnoticed. The trio of agents take their parachutes and prepare to jump, but at the same time, Dodgson, who heard that Kayla was arrested by the authorities just a few days ago, fears that her plane is a Trojan horse and decides to activate the valley's "aerial defense". On the screen of one of the room's monitors, we see a group of dots heading straight towards the plane. It's actually a group of pteranodons, from the same toothed variant as those who appeared in Jurassic Park 3 (there is even at least one black male identical to the scrapped one from Johnston's film), and they just collide with the plane, crashing against the cockpit and getting turned to shred by the rotors' blades, damaging the plane (the scene is partly inspired by a cutscene from the Ninth Mission of Paraworld's campaign). Owen wonder why those pteranodons behave in a suicidal manner. Suddenly, the pteranodons retreat and as their window is shrinking, the agents know they have to jump now (they've reached the middle of the valley and their trajectory deviated northwards, towards the mountain dam). Claire jumps first but as Owen is about to jump in his turn, the plane is attacked by a Quetzalcoatlus and the Raptor Whisperer sees another and a few pteranodons chasing her fiancée, whose parachute opened. Claire shakes the pterosaurs off by disappearing into the valley's dense forest. As they will be grabbed by the attacking pterosaurs as soon as they leave the aircraft, Owen, Dougal and Kayla stay inside it and brace for the crash. The plane crashes down at the surface of the frozen lake by the mountain dam in the northern part of the valley.
Back in Rome, Vuillier, Nyamu and Viscontini are worried as they heard the agents and the pterosaurs' screams (they had an open channel all that time with Kayla's plane). They hope the agents will survive this ordeal and activate the beacons they were given before their departure.
Note: The fate of the animal they took with them is still unclear for me. It really depends on the chosen species. If it's something large and potentially dangerous, Kayla would probably want to drop it in the valley in order to have a lighter plane and not deal with it after crashing. But if it's a creature about the size of a small dog for example, they could free it as they leave the wreckage.
We then cut to Claire hanging in the trees but instead of a Therizinosaurus (which already appeared in TRQ. Moreover, Claire had a small arc with this species in that story), she is threatened by a Gigantoraptor. The scene plays out much like the Theri scene from Trevorrow's version, with Claire hiding in a pond etc.. Once the Gigantoraptor walks away, Claire gets out of the pond and sees the fumes from the plane's crash in the distance, behind the mountain dam.
The dam lake
Before it sinks in the lake, Owen, Dougal and Kayla leave her plane and step on the ice. Under it, they notice a large shadow and know they better move away from the lake. They notice a ladder by the dam but as they head towards it, a Quetzalcoatlus or a Pteranodon lands on their way. They step back, moving towards an opening on the lake's surface. Suddenly, a giant 9-meters long temnospondyl (based upon an unnamed and fragmentary genus from Lesotho) burst out the water, almost killing one of the characters. Ensue a scene where our three protagonists have to evade both the pterosaur and the amphibian. The pterosaur ends up being dragged underwater by the temnospondyl but other pterosaurs arrive and to escape them, our trio climbs on the dam and rushes to its elevator, going down in the valley. Down at the dam's base, they notice it's dilapidated and Kayla tell her two companions that Biosyn sell some of its power to the nearest villages.
Note: The main doubt I have about this scene is having a temnospondyl living in the icy water of a mountain lake. It might be too much of a stretch so if you think it's not realistic at all, it will be scrapped from the scene (and perhaps be replaced by a juvenile Baryonyx or something like this, an animal which could be also the one our characters brought with them in the plane.
Plan B
Since the agents lost their beacons during the pterosaurs' attack and the crash, they couldn't tell Rome that they were still alive. Vuillier and Viscontini fear the worst and send a message to Laurenzo Cesare.
Meanwhile, Claire started walking towards the dam, hoping to find her companions on the way if they made it out alive from the crash. When she hears a racket in the woods, she hides and a Biosyn tyrannosaur arrives. But it's not on a hunting mode and instead, it just leaves some droppings on a log near Claire's hiding place. After the predator leaves, she approaches the log and smears her face with the droppings, remembering her "Walk in the Park" with Owen when they searched her nephews during the Fall of Jurassic World (the droppings hide her smell, dissuading the other animals to investigate her).
An argument bursts out between Owen, Dougal and Kayla while they're walking south. The first wants to find his fiancée, the second says that their mission is more important, and Kayla is mad at both men since she lost her plane (and livelihood) because of the WDMC's mission. And unsure about her intentions, the two men distrust her but she tries to reassure them by saying that Biosyn can fuck off since they are also responsible for destroying her plane.
However, the Sanctuary's denizens remind them that they better be united or else it will be the failure of their quest.
At some distance, in the middle of the fog, they see the recognizable silhouette of a sauropod, that of an Argentinosaurus (the species was seen in the distance and mentioned earlier in the story. Instead of Argentinosaurus, it could also be another large titanosaur). However, this herbivore has the particularity of having a symbiotic relation with some small carnivore species within Biosyn Sanctuary (I'm more thinking about a pterosaur or a flying/semi-arboreal theropod than a strictly ground-dwelling predator. For now, the baboon-sized Variraptor is my candidate), with the Argentinosaurus letting those carnivores eat its parasites and the insects flying around it while the carnivores will let out an alarm call shall a large predator approach. It could be illustrated in a scene where an Acrocanthosaurus (the one from the Drive-in scene) is spotted by the carnivores as it passes by. The Argentinosaurus turns to face the larger predator, adopt a defensive posture, and as the acro hasn't yet moved, the smaller carnivores take off from the sauropod and flies straight to the acro's head. Harassed by those creatures, the Acrocanthosaurus retreats. Thus, if those small carnivores (which we'll call the Argentinosaurus' suite) are brave enough to attack a megatheropod, our three protagonists know they're not safe and that they better move away.
The Sanctuary's true nature
While still heading north, Claire's path crosses that of a bull Shantungosaurus. She move out of his way and stay still. She and the audience recognize the animal as he was already in the JW rewrite and TRQ (in the first story, he gained some scars after a fight with a few Metriacanthosaurus), where he was a secondary "character" (and a threat in a few scenes). Both have a peaceful scene where they make eye contact but that quiet moment is shattered when a gunshot resounds in the forest and the hadrosaur flees, badly wounded. Claire hides and in the distance, she sees a hunter, accompanied by a couple of Biosyn security guards and another employee which she presume is some sort of supervisohunting guide. Watching how the hunter is dressed and how he behave in the wild, she knows he's not a professional hunter but just a rich hobbyist and then realizes the Sanctuary's true nature: It's a hunting reserve. As the Shantungosaurus escaped them, the hunter express his discontentment at the guide, which promise to find him another quarry. They leave and following the blood trail left by the hadrosaur, Claire finds him by a stream. His wounds are too grievous and he's too weak to lash out at Claire, who kneels by his head, trying to comfort him in his last moments, up until his last breath. Watching another of her former park's animals dying fills Claire with not only grief, but also anger. She change her plans and heads back south instead of continuing northward, following the hunting party's track.
Note: It doesn't necessarily have to be a Shantungosaurus in the role of the animal shot by the hunters, but it have to be a recognizable animal from the previous installments for emotional impact and Claire's development (another candidate could be the Therizinosaurus from TRQ)
She later finds another hunting party. One of its members, a Biosyn guard, pulls out an item she recognize: a raptor resonating chamber. The guard use it like a bird call and soon, an Achillobator, arrive, believing it heard one of its kind. The poor animal is shot by the hunters, who scream in satisfaction before taking a picture with their quarry. They then brings it to the Biosyn vehicle waiting nearby but before they leave (after having a short conversation during they mention that another team captured the rex and is bringing it the paddocks), Claire deliberately attract the attention of one of the guards, the same one which used the resonating chamber, and he say to his companions he won't be long. He move away from the road and deeper in the woods, he fall into Claire's ambush. She kill him, loot some of his equipment (including the resonating chamber), hide his body and leave. Worried for his colleague, the other guard with the hunters orders the guide to drive them back to the lodge, and search his friend. But he too is murdered by Claire, who takes a small metallic box on him. Activating the box, she realize it's a sonic weapon she has seen before, in the hands of InGen Security's elite troops during the fall of Isla Nublar (it's like a weaponized version of the box Dodgson and his companions have in Crichton's TLW). She turns it off, take it with her and follows the hunters vehicle's tracks on the road, towards the lodge.
However, Claire ignores she's being watched, and not by human eyes...
Over hill
Cesare and his men leave their accommodation and head for the frontiers of Biosyn's lands. Leaving their vehicles near a ruined fort, the grey guards start their trek while the sun is setting behind the mountains ahead of them.
A bed in the trees
As walking through the valley at night would be too dangerous, Owen, Dougal and Kayla decide to find a resting place and climb in a tree. From it, they have a panorama on a nearby lake and notice they are approximately halfway between the dam and the Citadel. At this moment, we also have peaceful scenes with the valley's denizens at dusk (Pelecanimimus fishing in the lake, herbivores drinking nearby, the same Spinosaurus from the report at the beginning peacefully sitting on the bank like an oversized duck...).
Theo's peace
In the evening, just a few hours before his flight to Venice, Theo also passes by his former home, which he left years ago before joining Ken Wheatley's mercenary company. His ex-wife still lives here and noticing that she started a new life with another man and seems happy, he walks away in peace, leaving behind him the last picture he had of himself and her (earlier in the story, Theo is seen looking at said picture).
The secret path
Back in Italy, the grey guards find the entrance of an old mine and enter it, taking the path that will allow them to pass under the limits of Biosyn's lands.
Mercenary troops land in Biosyn's airstrip and their leader is brought to the Citadel. He has a discussion with Dodgson behind closed doors.
Foes... or allies?
A few hours after nightfall, Claire finally finds a large old chalet with typical Tyrolean architecture: The Hunting Lodge (it's implied that it was built way before Biosyn bought those lands, when the area was still part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, before WWI). Claire remarks it's surrounded by an invisible fence (identical to the one from Jurassic World Evolution 2's Biosyn DLC) which prevents the animals from getting too close. Aware that the lodge wouldn't be a shelter for her and that its occupants probably outnumber her, she turns away from it, continuing to wander in the woods. But just a few minutes later, she hears sound in the nearby bushes. Aware she might be hunted, she is ready to use the ultrasound box and fight for her life. A pack of Achillobators shows up, menacingly walking towards her. At the same time, it starts to rain.
Claire first thinks of using the box and running away while the predators would be bothered by the sound but she knows it will be useless in the long run as they could track her all across the Sanctuary. She then remembers the reports she read earlier in the story, and especially that of the 2001 incident on Sorna, where Alan Grant and his companions walked out alive and unharmed from a close encounter with raptors.
In dire straits, she makes up a desperate plan and carefully, she pulls out the resonating chamber she stole from the Biosyn guards. She uses it and due to their bad experience in the sanctuary with the resonating chambers' usual users, the raptors get agitated but their pack leader tells them to calm down as Claire doesn't seem to be a Biosyn guard or a hunter. The pack leader walks alone towards Claire and sniffs the dried blood on her hands and clothes, realizing it belongs to other humans. Nothing happens for a moment and then the pack leader lets out a bark. Behind Claire, two raptors move aside. Slowly walking backwards, watching carefully the raptors' moves, Claire exits the circle made by the surrounding predators and continues doing so until she's at a respectable distance. At the beginning, the raptors just watch her but as she's heading towards the Hunting Lodge, she hears them following her. However, she is aware that they would have already pounced on her if they wanted to eat her and knows that they're more intrigued. Meanwhile, the rain intensifies (there could also be a storm).
Claire reaches the invisible fence, crosses it, and searches for its power source. But as she's sabotaging it, the Lodge caretaker (a gnarly-looking old local man) spots her and frightened by her look, runs away towards the building. She is forced to catch him and, after a short struggle, kill him with her knife before he can raise the alarm. After showing some trouble due to killing a probable innocent, she resumes her sabotage and the fence is deactivated. The raptors cross it and see Claire entering the lodge. Near its entrance, she finds a sword hanging on the wall as a decorative element and noticing it's still sharp, she takes it along with its sheath and heads for the rooms. Behind her, the raptors open the door and silently enter in the lodge. In the hallway which leads to the rooms, Claire stays still when the raptors walk past her as they head to the rooms and grin as her audacious plan is working. Claire enters one of the rooms, raises her sword blade over a sleeping hunter and when the time comes, thrust it into his body. Meanwhile, the raptors open other doors and entering the rooms, they rush on the sleepers. Slaughter ensues and only those who locked up their doors have the time to wake up, grab a weapon and fight for their very survival. Some of the lodge's occupants offer some resistance in the lounge but there, Claire activates the sonic weapon she stole and an ear-piercing sharp sound comes from it. While the raptors back off behind her, their common enemies kneel and scream in pain and Claire (who put on some earplug) slashes their throats, deactivate the weapon, and let the raptors tear the hunters alive while she raids some items (stuff like snacks, water, a first-aid kit, a map...) and leave, disappearing in the woods.
A bit later, she finds a small cave whose entrance is high from the ground and rest in it, sleeping until mid-morning.
The mountain's pass
At the end of their night-long ascent, the grey guards arrive in a pass/cave where they found human bones, which they presume to be those of the AISI's spy Viscontini told them about, and the remains of a Biosyn drone. Soon after, they are attacked by the guardian animal(s) the corporation left there to kill any trespasser coming from that direction. (I haven't chosen any species yet). They manage to defeat it (or them) and dawn break out as they arrive at a vista point which overlooks the valley. The grey guards observe it, the eyes of Cesare stop on the Citadel for a moment, and they retreat back inside the mountain to rest a few hours before descending into the valley. They send a message to Vuillier and Viscontini, telling them that they're inside the Sanctuary.
Traces of a slaughter
During their early morning patrol, a security team discovers that a massacre occurred during the night in the Hunting Lodge. They find clues indicating that someone helped the raptors and participated in the killings. The control room check the Lodge CCTV footage and fear spreads like wildfire among the staff when they discover the culprit is a sinister-looking black-clad hooded woman. Seeing that one of the figure's hand is a prosthesis and that the other wear a silver ring with a red gem, they realize it's Claire and Dodgson pretty much start to crap his pants (partly because one of the hunters was a very wealthy and powerful foreign client whose disappearance won't go unnoticed). Since she made it out alive from the plane's crash, Dodgson fears that the other WDMC agents might have too. When asked about the slaughter itself, Dodgson orders his staff to cover it up for the moment, as he don't want to worry the board of directors who are set to arrive later that day for a big event he planned in the evening.
Theo's return
Theo returns to Auronzo and Wu, who just learned about Claire's presence in the valley, tells him that they must get Maisie out of the facility as soon as possible since disaster tends to follow Claire like a shadow.
Taking the gloves off
However, Maisie has meanwhile discovered that the videos were another lie, by recognizing one of the scientists from the video, who also work at the Citadel (and who didn't aged, even though the adult Charlotte's video was supposed to be taken fourteen years ago). Aware that the gentle method is no longer considerable, Dodgson decides to use the hard one and Doctor Lesser locks Maisie in a cell within her lab, to which Wu can't access. Lesser reveal that it wasn't Wu who told Dodgson that she was a clone but the spy he has among Lockwood Manor's employees, and that the only true part in the video was the one about the genetic disease: Charlotte did had it, just like her mother Elizabeth before that (she died in 1993 and it was because of her Lockwood and Hammond fell out), and had the car accident which took her life didn't happened, the disease would have killed her a few years later. As he wanted Maisie to have a long life, Benjamin Lockwood asked the scientists he hired (there is a whole subplot about what they became in TRQ) to cure it and they did find a way. As the scientists' notes were accidently destroyed, the solution is now within Maisie's body, and Dodgson wants it so he can put new drugs on the market.
Before it's too late, Wu and Theo, with Ramsay's help, start organizing Maisie's evasion. The geneticist mentions a secret trail from WWI in the northeastern mountains: It's their escape route. He then heads for his lab, planning something else.
Tracking Claire
Curious about Biosyn's movements around the Hunting Lodge, Owen, Dougal and Kayla investigate it after the departure of the security troops. They discover evidence of Claire's passage and Owen tries to follow her fiancée's tracks. Kayla and/or Dougal make comments about the slaughter of the hunters.
Bigelow's last chance
Isaac Gibbon gives Jessica Bigelow a new mission: Go to Auronzo and ensure the evacuation of Lewis Dodgson and Biosyn's most important research. The agent ask her boss why and he said that he just received news that Biosyn is compromised. He also precise that it's her last chance after the Malta fiasco. Bigelow leave her safe house in central Italy and goes north.
Shady preparations
Continuing south, Owen, Dougal and Kayla see mercenaries positioning some sort of moveable antenna on a ridge which overlooks the road which connects the Citadel to the valley's northern continue, as finding Claire and entering the Citadel is more urgent.
The gathering of the clouds
One of the control room's employees ask Dodgson to come. He shows him footage from the Biosyn lands's southern gate, near the employee village.
Before the gate, a group of Carabinieri stand, showing to the guards and the security cameras a search warrant: The government finally decided to act against Biosyn. But Dodgson refuses to open the gates for the Carabinieri and orders the mercenaries who arrived during the night to intimidate them. The Carabinieri move away from the gate, with their leader warning against the consequences of such an action. At a respectable distance from the gate, Vuillier, Viscontini and Nyamu watched the scene. Soon, other groups of Carabinieri are deployed along the other entrances to Biosyn's lands. The siege of Auronzo has started.
Hearing about the siege's situation, some employees leave their post and head for the metro (which connects the Citadel to the village. Another loop also connects the Citadel to the various facilities across the Sanctuary, including the seven towers and the dam), in order to go to the village and then hoping to be able to leave Biosyn's lands before things starts to get too ugly but Dodgson's has the metro's station locked and commands them to go back to their posts. Seeing their CEO starting to act like Hitler in his bunker, they are afraid.

End of Act III.
See you tomorrow for Act IV

2023.06.07 09:03 MalcoveMagnesia primary care / family doctor recommendations for Royal Oak?

This is the kind of question that might get asked on the Facebook groups or one I would ask the professional Karens of NextDoor 🤪, but for a change of pace maybe I'll have good luck asking here?
Anyone have any recommendations for awesome/decent primary care doctors in Royal Oak?
The doctor I visited for issues for many years turned into a concierge doctor (i.e. ~$2000 yearly fee just to get in the door; and doing a max of 1-2 visits per year, it just didn't make sense to pay the fee), and the medical group I'm going to since then (no names but they're located right by Kroger Marketplace) are absolutely not fun to deal with (overworked doctors who act dismissive or uninterested in the patient, and cranky front office people who either schedule a physicians assistant video-call or tell me to go to Urgent Care when I'm feeling really sick). So that's why I am hoping peeps here might have some recommendations I can investigate.

2023.06.07 08:55 Grand-Ad4052 Should I go to urgent care??

(21F) I have always had pain on and off in my right hip. (Mostly a dull ache or the occasional sharp stabbing pain) Usually after being very active - then for days afterwards sitting, laying down or even just standing without putting weight on it hurts. Ice helps, heat too. The muscles extending into my lower back, onto the top-ish part of my butt cheek and the side of my hip all feel tight. Massaging helps. Lately it’s been worse.. it’s all the time pain going on week 2. I have some weakness in my leg, some sex positions are definitely a no. When I pick up my special needs toddler (40 pounds) it feels like a pressure buildup on my tailbone - most of the time I push through it but I feel like my legs are going to give out. Today I had tingling in my foot, tingling that starts after being in 1 position for too long (no matter the position) I also noticed I walk with my foot pointed outward - walking with it pointed straight puts so much awkward tension on my knee/hip I’ve gone to doctors before about my hip pain, but never got farther than the doctor telling me to lose weight and fix my posture. At the most I was 80-90 pounds overweight - which I have since lost and I do notice a difference, I guess.. but I’ve always gotten comments about my good posture. Honestly, I haven’t seen a PCP since I was 17. I have extreme anxiety in doctors offices/hospitals. Urgent care is always quick and the only place I can tell myself to just breathe through it. I have bursitis in my right shoulder (diagnosed in 2017) I have good pain management for it including icing, a sling and pain killers.. I have no idea what I did but I haven’t been able to move my arm above my head for 3 days.. Ms. bursa is aggravated.. could my hip be the same thing? Bursitis hip? Does Bursitis spread? Im terrified.

2023.06.07 08:25 SirPandaSlayer3rd I want to scream

I (m23) feel like I can’t be the one who is sad. My wife (f20) has had constant battles with depression and suicide in her life. She hasn’t attempted suicide in a few years. She was 16 when she did attempt it. But she is very emotional which I try my hardest to be supportive but I also feel a lot of emotions as I battle depression and suicidal thoughts as well (no I don’t plan on committing suicide please don’t send the Reddit task suicide risk team on me). My father passed when I was 21 and although I had already been struggling with depression from when I was 19 it just made it worse. I miss him deeply but I feel like I’m our relationship I can not be sad ever I have to be strong and have to be able to take care of her and make sure she is happy even when I’m not. I’ve never been good at expressing emotions. We recently moved to her hometown (it is great I’m glad we have a house now not the shithole apartment we were in in my home town) but I have no friends. Which isn’t different than before but I just feel so alone and have no one I can talk to because when I’m upset it just seems to make her more upset.

2023.06.07 08:13 VisualPoetry1775 criticism not allowed

NMS was an absolutely unfinished game in 2016. After about 7 years of updates, it was in relatively good condition. Really kudos for this. It's still a lot of fun. and now be careful: as soon as you criticize something here, the haters will come. at the latest now the completely pointless comments and messages from the defenders of the atlas will follow. Please we urgently need updates on exploration, planetary diversity, base building. Put the exploration missions or any combat updates on the back burner and update the all-important basic structures of the game. I don't want to keep seeing the same animals with different ears in different sizes. the fact that a colorful ball appears as a life form every few planets doesn't make it any better. I want to dive below 200 and be attacked by sea monsters. I want flowing water, not purple or red grass all the time. I don't even want to start with the base building problems. but now thumbs down and wait for the next song of praise.
(I love the game too)

2023.06.07 08:01 TechPRIsLife men & miscarriage

How can I be a supportive partner to my husband (31M) while also managing my own pain and emotions after losing our baby?
I was 6 weeks pregnant and had a miscarriage today. It’s only been about 5 hours since we left urgent care, and I’ve quickly realized that I have all the support in the world — my husband, however, is in a different spot.
Sure, it’s not his body and he’s not feeling the physical pain / loss and all that comes with that, but he lost a child too. We both wanted this baby and he’s been as supportive as he can be, but it’s clear he’s suffering and sad.
He’s talked to close friends and family a bit already, but any advice / stories / support you recommend would be immensely helpful, thank you 🤍

2023.06.07 07:58 Wilson_Fisk96 My plan has not been renewed even though i have already paid.

My payment was due on 06-07-23. But as my 5G data had all been used so i though to renew the plan early. Then i made the payment on 06-04-23 through the Boost One app. The app shows my payment is successful but they didn’t renew my plan. So i called the customer care. They said i have to wait untill my current month plan expires. I can't renew my plan while i have existing one. So i waited till 06-07-23. But it has not been renewed even now. I tried to call the customer care but they say waiting period is too long for talking to customer agent due to high backlog. I dont know what to do now. I need to get the 5G data now urgently. But my regular unlimited data is working. Text and calls are fine. Is there any issue just with their 5G Network?

2023.06.07 07:53 jeccasaurus Toddler high heart rate while sick

3 year old/female/31 lbs/ C-section/breech/ no regular medications (took zofran at urgent care this afternoon)
My daughter is 3 and this morning went to daycare this morning, where she complained about her stomach hurting, took a nap, vomited after napping, afterwards said she felt better. Then she napped again shortly after. I picked her up during her second nap, where she vomited in the car ride to urgent care. Her temperature there was 100.1. Urgent care said to monitor her and gave her zofran. I asked if there were any side effects and the Dr replied asking if she had any heart abnormalities, which I stated no.
When we got home, I noticed her paperwork said heart rate was "161(!)" Since it had an "!" next to it, I checked her current heart rate (which was still around 150 after laying on the couch for 2 hours watching TV) and I called the advice nurse. They said it's probably anxiety/stress and not to worry unless it's over 180.
A couple hours before bed, her temperature went up to 102 and I gave her children's Tylenol. I have an old owlet monitor I put on her tonight and her heart rate has fluctuated between 130-160 all night. I checked the accuracy with a finger oximeter, so it should be accurate. Should I be concerned that her heart rate is this high or that it's been going up and down so much? Could zofran be responsible? It's been approximately 8 hours since she took zofran.
I'm waiting for the doctors to get back to me, but it's night, so I may not hear back until morning.
Edit: also took COVID test in urgent care; came back negative.

2023.06.07 07:49 sidnee444 Can I see a second doctor on my own if I received workers compensation?

I don’t 100% know if I am receiving anything since on my paper they said I was allowed to Head back to work that day.
Here is what happened, I was at work where I clean cars and etc, I was cleaning a car and ended up slamming my finger in the door, I immediately went to a manger and alerted them, my finger was horribly bleeding and I was close to passing out, I finally calmed down and filed paperwork and they sent me to an urgent care that is provided by them. I got there and it took them a while to see me, which was fine because they seemed pretty busy. The doctor said it might need stitches, but then I didn’t see him again and it was never brought back Ul again, I got taken back for a X ray, they said it wasn’t broken but didn’t really state what was wrong, they bandaged me up and didn’t clean it out or anything, and sent me on the way, they didn’t ask if I had any follow up questions or concerns.. i ended up contacting my primary doctor asking if I could have a recommendation of where to go to have it checked out more thoroughly, but was wondering if I could do that? I have a follow up appointment at the one my work sent me to Thursday around 11:30 but my finger is still bleeding, tingly and numb and just concerned since I do leave for vacation Friday and want it to be ok and safe when I go. TLDR: can I see a doctor on my own time if I had to go to urgent care for a work related injury

2023.06.07 07:46 gentlepet Choosing the Right Mobile Pet Euthanasia Provider: Factors to Consider

When faced with the difficult decision of euthanizing a beloved pet, ensuring a peaceful and compassionate passing becomes of utmost importance. Mobile pet euthanasia services offer a unique option by bringing the procedure to the comfort of your home. However, choosing the right mobile pet euthanasia provider requires careful consideration. In this blog post, we will discuss the key factors to consider when selecting a provider to ensure that your pet receives the utmost care and compassion during their final moments.

Qualifications and Experience:

One of the essential factors to consider when choosing a mobile pet euthanasia provider is their qualifications and experience. Look for providers who are licensed veterinarians and have specialized training in end-of-life care. Determine if they have experience in performing euthanasia procedures and handling the emotional needs of pet owners during this challenging time.

Compassionate and Supportive Approach:

The compassion and support provided by the mobile pet euthanasia provider are crucial during this emotional process. Seek out a provider who demonstrates empathy, understanding, and sensitivity towards both you and your pet. Consider reading testimonials or asking for recommendations to gauge the experiences of others who have used their services.

Range of Services:

Consider the range of services offered by the mobile pet euthanasia provider. Do they offer pre-euthanasia consultations to discuss the procedure and answer any questions or concerns you may have? Will they handle the transportation and aftercare arrangements? Understanding the extent of their services will help you make an informed decision that aligns with your needs and preferences.

Availability and Flexibility:

Pet emergencies can happen at any time, so it's crucial to choose a mobile pet euthanasia provider who offers convenient and flexible appointment options. Ensure that they are available during evenings, weekends, or holidays if needed. Additionally, consider their response time and whether they can accommodate urgent requests when necessary.

Cost and Payment Options:

While cost should not be the sole determining factor, it is essential to consider the fees associated with mobile pet euthanasia services. Request a clear breakdown of the costs involved, including any additional charges for specific services or aftercare options. Additionally, inquire about the available payment options, such as credit cards, checks, or pet insurance coverage, to ensure a hassle-free experience.

Recommendations and Referrals:

Seek recommendations from trusted sources, such as your veterinarian, local pet organizations, or friends who have experienced mobile pet euthanasia services. Hearing about their personal experiences can provide valuable insights and help you make an informed decision.


Choosing the right mobile pet euthanasia provider is a deeply personal decision. By considering factors such as qualifications, compassion, services offered, availability, cost, and recommendations, you can find a provider who will provide the utmost care and support during this difficult time. Remember that your pet deserves a peaceful passing surrounded by love and comfort, and finding the right provider will ensure their final moments are as gentle and dignified as possible.
