The Final EncounterOutside of the riverfront Drake Energy plant, Smoke and Sidney prepare themselves for the final showdown with Kane. It's all or nothing as they find themselves inside a hive full of countless shifting enemies, some new and some old, in a modern-day labyrinth full of surprises.An Unexpected EvilWith the help of Sam, Guppy, Cort, Mal and Asia, they boldly rush in where angels fear to tread. They discover the deep, evil source of the shifters power...a godlike being born millennia ago.The Ultimate TestTheir iron wills and mortal weapons will be pushed to their limits, and they will discover whether they can stop the godlike figure that roams within the belly of the hive. Can Smoke control is own blood lust, or will he give in to the shifters and turn on his friends? Is there a cure for the evil that wants his soul? This is the end of road.

The Greater Underwater Propulsion Power Program (GUPPY) was initiated by the United States Navy after World War II to improve the submerged speed, maneuverability, and endurance of its submarines. The Navy began the program by testing and reverse engineering two captured Type XXI U-boats: U-2513 and U-3008. That analysis led to four goals: increasing the submarines' battery capacity, streamlining the boats' structures, adding snorkels, and improving fire control systems. The Navy immediately focused on designing a new class of submarines, but the Bureau of Ships believed that the vast fleet of existing Gato, Balao, and Tench class submarines could be modified to incorporate the desired improvements. In June 1946, the Chief of Naval Operations approved the GUPPY project. The initial two boat test program, implemented by the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, eventually grew into several successive conversion programs. Those upgrades proceeded in seven variants: GUPPY I, GUPPY II, GUPPY IA, Fleet Snorkel, GUPPY IIA, GUPPY IB, and GUPPY III. Some boats that went through an early phase were then upgraded further in a later phase.
Considering the failures in the utilization of single tactics in mosquito control programmes, it becomes imperative to explore a combination of methods (guppy and larvicides) in a compatible manner against mosquito larvae species. The toxicological profile of commonly used larvicides namely actellic, spinosad and chlorpyrifos were evaluated using suit of biomarkers to obtain compatible concentrations that would be used jointly with a biological control agent: Poecilia reticulata to regulate mosquito population at established fish to larvae feeding density. The results show that integrated approach is feasible and better than the use of single tactic only when certain factors like container size, predator to prey feeding density, appropriate larvicide and concentration are considered.
