[S1E5] Animal Control WORK
Determined to bring him back before daylight, Colin, Guillermo and Nandor all work together to break Laszlo out of the animal centre. Unfortunately they free the wrong bat and realize they have to go back inside again.
[S1E5] Animal Control
Nandor sneaks in the back and frees Laszlo still in his bat form, but it turns out to be a real bat with rabies and Laszlo is still in the shelter. Meanwhile, inside the shelter, Laszlo turns back into his human form inside his cage and attempts to rally the other animals into a rebellion, pledging to free them if they help him escape.
Laszlo keeps his promise and frees his animal companions but they end up attacking him, namely the cats. In the end, Gregor is arrested as he runs around Staten Island claiming to be a fierce warrior. So, it was an unusual night for everyone.
After the howling and barking of the animals in an animal shelter across the street keeps Dan from sleeping comfortably, he dials the shelter and is greeted by Crunchy, the employee working at the shelter. Dan orders Crunchy to shut the animals up, and Crunchy says he'll try his best. After hanging up, Dan tries to sleep again but the barking persists, enraging Dan.
He dons a robe and slippers and walks to the shelter, confronting Crunchy. After being given complimentary earplugs, he returns home and tries to sleep a final time, but is once again unable to do so. Dan calls Chris, but is picked up by an answering machine. The next morning, Chris arrives at Dan's apartment, where Dan is baking a meatloaf. Dan complains about Chris leaving his phone off at night, and forces Chris to promise never to leave his phone off. Throughout their conversation Chris eats the meatloaf. Dan then explains that the animal shelter won't let him sleep, then tells Chris he plans to poison the animals. After Chris disagrees with killing abandoned animals, Dan then suggests killing the man at the counter, with which Chris states would be murder. Dan complains, saying he wasted his whole day making a poison meatloaf. Chris takes several more bites from the meatloaf, then pauses, realizing his mistake. Dan then takes Chris to the hospital.
Several hours later, Dan lines the animal shelter with dynamite and sets a timer. Crunchy is unaware of what is going on because he was wearing headphones. As he begins to leave the shelter, a kitten catches his eye. After telling the cat to stop looking at him, he suddenly realizes that he loves the creature and decides to keep her. Dan named his cat "Mumbles", then changed her name to "Mr. Mumbles" shortly after. They begin to leave the shelter and Dan decides last minute to release the animals, saving them from the explosion. Dan and Mr. Mumbles watch the building explode, then return home. After sleeping for a few moments, gunshots startle both Dan and Mr. Mumbles, causing the cat to scratch up Dan's face. Dan becomes enraged over the new firing range built. The following day Dan goes to the hospital and meets a doctor that instructs Dan to remove his pants, worrying Dan.
Many animals brought into rehabilitation centers cannot be saved. The last gift we can give is humane euthanasia. We will discuss when this gift is necessary. We tackle this tough subject because it is a necessary part of wildlife rehabilitation. Additionally, we will have discussions on self-care so rehabilitators can continue this vital work while being mentally healthy.
The series employs the latest filming technologies and showcases over two decades of new scientific discoveries about how plants behave and interact. The Green Planet reveals the strange and wonderful world of plants like never before. Across the series, David will travel across the globe, from the U.S. to Costa Rica, Croatia to northern Europe. From deserts to water worlds, from tropical forests to the frozen north, he finds new stories and brings a fresh understanding of how plants live their lives. He will meet the largest living things that have ever existed; trees that care for each other; plants that hunt animals and a plant with most vicious defences in the world.
New motion-control robotics systems allow us to enter the world of plants, in real time and in timelapse, to watch as they grow and interact with the world around them. Thermal cameras, macro frame-stacking to give incredible depth-of-field, ultra-high-speed cameras and the latest developments in microscopy all allow us to reveal a fresh view of the lives of plants and their incredible beauty
Roger spends the hour like a cornered animal, lashing out at any and all in the near vicinity. From an armchair point of view, it comes across as a byproduct of insulation and isolation, a long-held belief of being in control starting to be tested.
MONTAGE: Released in 2016, the MONTAGE represents a new era in synthesizer technology by offering unprecedented ways for keyboard players to control and interact with sound. MONTAGE, available in 61-, 76- and 88-key configurations, features the Motion Control Synthesizer Engine, a powerful and intuitive way to interact with and control sound. The Motion Control Synthesizer Engine controls two iconic Sound Engines: Advanced Wave Memory 2 (AWM2) and FM-X.
Bats are globally distributed mammals with high diversification [3,4]. They are documented to harbor several viruses including highly pathogenic agents, of which some are designated of pandemic concern by the World Health Organization . Their distinctive ecological and biological properties including relatively long lifespans, capacity for sustained flight, hibernation and roosting behaviors, potential for persistent and asymptomatic shedding due to unique immune response potentially increase virus maintenance and transmission [6,7]. Bats are documented as hosts of viruses of significant human health threat including rabies, Hendra, Nipah and Ebola viruses . They also harbor several coronaviruses including those responsible for severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) . The causative agent of the COVID-19 pandemic is associated with a previously identified ancestral bat coronaviruses [10,11]. Hence, bats are optimal target species for screening virus diversity and potential agents with high spillover potential. Globally, anthropogenic environmental changes due to agriculture, industrial activities and urbanization have impacted bat populations, with increased probability of viral spillover into humans and animals [12,13].
Astroviruses were also prevalent in our metagenomic investigation. Viruses of the Mamastrovirus genus are widely distributed in many domestic animals and wildlife, as well as in humans . Although data are lacking from large geographical areas, an increasing number of bat species have been discovered to host astroviruses globally, without any apparent symptoms . Astroviruses in bats have also demonstrated a varying degree of host restriction and a broad sequence diversity, suggesting circulation of multiple strains . We made similar observations where up to 24.8% amino acid divergence was observed. Moreover, virus sequences were present in all bat species sampled in two sites. This is the first report of astrovirus sequences in bats from Kenya, which were previously only documented as human and swine infections [48,49]. Currently, astrovirus shedding, persistence and pathogenicity in bats is not fully understood and information is insufficient to assess zoonotic potential. However, it can be speculated that emergence of a novel pathogenic strain is not unlikely, given the findings on prevalence and genetic diversity . The impact of bats as astrovirus reservoirs requires further investigation. 041b061a72
