Abstract:To establish good ecological status in European rivers, firstly there is the question of how to re-establish unhindered migration for fish at barriers. This article documents a project to re-establish longitudinal connectivity at a large epipotamal river at the Schwabeck Hydro Power Plant, Carinthia/Austria, from the selection of an appropriate fish pass system to the final function control. Instead of a standard vertical slot, the innovative enature® fish pass shape with a significant reduction of flow, velocities, energy dissipation rate, and turbulences, but with a clear enhancement of fish passage capability, was chosen. Using 2D hydraulic modelling and a statistical evaluation of fish passage, physical and ecological effects were reviewed, with the clear result that there is no identifiable, positive ecological effect on the number of fish migrating with an increase of concurrent flow in the fish pass. Passability and findability were monitored with the new FishCam, an automatic, precise, and constant (24/7 24 h a day, seven days a week) collection and pre-evaluation field data survey method which does not involve trapping of, contact with, or stress for fish. It was shown that the enature® fish pass enables an unhindered migration for all available fish species. As >99% of fish migrate from April to November, there is no ecological need to operate a fully functional fish pass year-round. Combining all the individual factors together, the fish pass at the Schwabeck Hydro Power Plant is an almost exemplary solution for a fully functioning restauration of the continuum with a minimized loss of generation of electricity.Keywords: enature® fish pass; longitudinal connectivity; guiding flow; FishCam monitoring; habitat status assessment
The First Circuit affirmed Defendant's conviction of one count of knowingly distributing child pornography, holding that the district court did not err in excluding the testimony of Dr. Robert Weiss, a therapist and relationship specialist with a speciality in sex addiction.Defendant's prisonmate, Dmitry Bron, was working with law enforcement when Defendant shared his collection of images of child sexual abuse with Bron. At trial, Defendant attempted to pursue an entrapment defense and sought to introduce the testimony of Dr. Weiss. The district court granted the government's motion to exclude Dr. Weiss, concluding that the testimony was not relevant to Defendant's defense. The First Circuit affirmed, holding that the district court did not abuse its discretion in excluding Dr. Weiss's testimony on the ground that it was not relevant.
As an intervention for anxiety, there is a strong evidence base for GI in anxiety management (Ji et al., 2016) in a variety of contexts. For example with nursing students (Speck, 1990; Stephens, 1992), patients coping with medical-related anxiety (Casida and Lemanski, 2010; Thomas and Sethares, 2010; Vineeta et al., 2010; Serra et al., 2012), first time mothers (Rees, 1995), and individuals with speech anxiety (Ayres and Hopf, 1985). For example, Serra et al. (2012) conducted 30-min GI sessions with patients undertaking radiation treatment. The GI sessions started with systematic breath awareness, followed by visualization of a place where the patients felt most safe and comfortable. Examples of this place were given, including a favorite beach, park or any other location that patients found peaceful. However, it is not clear from the methodology as to whether these visualized places were verified to determine the specific content of the imagery experienced by the patients. Patients were then asked to concentrate on the sensory aspects associated with their image. The average number of GI sessions undertaken by participants in this study was between one and four, and anxiety measures were taken at the first session and the last session. The study found that participants reported a reduction in anxiety between the first session and the last session, with 86% of the participants describing the GI sessions as helpful (Serra et al., 2012). One study (Parnabas and Mahamood, 2012) that explored the relationship between visualizing imagery, nature and anxiety found that athletes who experienced higher levels of visualized green-space imagery experienced lower levels of competitive state anxiety. However, as many of the GI protocols in the above studies included phrases that actively encouraged participants to relax it is also possible that outcomes obtained were due to these instructions, making it difficult to ascertain whether anxiety reduction emerged from nature or the state of relaxation activated. Despite the potential links between imagery of nature and anxiety reduction, we were unable to find any studies that directly sought to investigate nature-based GI as an intervention for anxiety.
The current study has demonstrated that nature-based GI is effective in reducing anxiety. It has also demonstrated that anxiety-reducing effects can emerge from imagery of the natural world itself without the need to incorporate suggestive relaxation cues, which is a common element in guided-imagery scripts. Future research could undertake a deeper exploration of the possible mechanisms underlying the reduction in anxiety seen in participants who experience nature-based GI and perhaps also investigate the efficacy of GI against similar interventions such as mindfulness training. Individuals with high trait mindfulness could be more responsive to GI interventions than individuals with low trait mindfulness because they are likely to pay more attention to presented stimuli. In this way, trait mindfulness might enhance the GI intervention. This could be achieved through comparative studies and qualitative interviews with the participants about their GI experiences.

Hatred is first mentioned in Hate Floats, when The Monarch's henchmen tell The Monarch that they repaired his Cocoon fortress by stealing parts from "Sgt. Hatred's hover tank." He makes an unidentified cameo appearance in Fallen Arches, as part of a crowd leering after Dr. Venture's inventions.
In the Season 4 opener Blood of the Father, Heart of Steel, Hatred is working for O.S.I. again as the Venture's new bodyguard after having forcibly undergone reprogramming to cure his pedophilia, as well as the drug Nomolestol; this treatment may not have been entirely successful, as in later episodes he admits to having questionable images on his computer to which he masturbates. He has started to train Hank in combat, such as sniping, and praised him for being willing to shoot him when ordered, even though Hank only succeeded in grazing his shoulder with a ricochet. It is shown multiple times throughout Season 4 that Hatred is nowhere near as efficient a bodyguard as Brock, allowing The Monarch to invade the Venture compound and kidnap the Ventures with relatively little trouble. In The Revenge Society, Dr. Venture even notes, "If Brock were here right now, I'd be watching him hose blood off the front lawn".
Hatred is shown to be very knowledgeable of military maneuvers, procedures, hand to hand combat throughout the series, and is highly knowledgeable in weaponry, as shown in Home Is Where The Hate Is; additionally, in that episode he explains his mind is that of a military commander, ready to organize his attacks and strike only when his soldiers are in the right position. Number 21 complains to Mrs. The Monarch that the henchmen are getting torn apart because Hatred does not share Brocks aversion to firearms. In "The Family That Slays Together, Stays Together (Part II)", the command in his voice is enough to stimulate a plethora of brain-dead clone slugs into standing straight and marching in formation, a feat which appeared to make him glow with pride.
Hatred and Brock were both members of the O.S.I so Hatred has known the latter for years. In the past, Hatred was Brock's superior and had him and Gathers give up their investigation into the The Guild of Calamitous Intent most likely to cover his secret status as a villain himself. In Assisted Suicide, the two compete over who is more fit to protect Hank and Dean. This little skirmish is soon forgotten as Brock and Hatred would later work together on other occasions. One notable example, is in Maybe No Go is where Hatred helps Brock taunt the villain Wide Wale by tranquilizing a polar bear and placing it in the villain's lair. The two later decided to go for drinks after the act was done. Brock and Hatred cooperate much better now often working in tandem as a team to defeat whatever threat appears and have formed a bond as part of the Venture family. Brock also felt bad that Hatred was hospitalized after being badly beaten by Haranguetan.
