Fatty Liver Treatment – 5 Things You Should Do Right Now To Stop Fatty Infiltration Of The Liver

Upon the discovery of her pregnancy, Mara Jade was greatly worried for her unborn baby, believing that the disease could cause mutations in her child. But Luke Skywalker managed to calm her down and assuage her fears, and the two agreed to keep the child's existence a secret. Meanwhile, anti-Jedi sentiment among the citizens of the New Republic was growing more prevalent, exacerbated by an offer extended by the Yuuzhan Vong—kill all the Jedi, and the invaders would halt their assault on the Jedi.

While the offer was turned down by the New Republic, the galaxy was becoming more and more dangerous for the Jedi Knights. While on the beach, she suddenly felt weak and slipped into unconsciousness. She awoke under the care of an MD medical droid and felt her disease attacking her unborn baby. However, the Skywalkers were forced to flee Coruscant due to the warrant and stayed aboard the Errant Venture , an Imperial II -class Star Destroyer owned by former smuggler Booster Terrik which was being used as a makeshift Jedi academy for hiding Jedi students.

The Skywalkers immediately sought medical care once aboard the Star Destroyer, and Mara Jade's condition was rapidly worsening. Her coomb spore disease had returned, stronger than ever before, and Mara Jade expended all her energy, keeping it from attacking her womb at the cost of her own health. The Skywalkers were unsure how to handle the situation; the Skywalkers surmised that Jedi healer Cilghal would be able to induce labor, but Mara believed it would kill them both.

Desperate, Skywalker attacked the disease with the dark side of the Force , but was stopped by Mara. Skywalker then fought the disease with the light side of the Force , vanquishing the disease, and Mara went into labor. Despite the disease's attack on her body, Mara Jade Skywalker gave birth to a baby boy on the Errant Venture. After Ben's birth, the Skywalkers were notified by Borsk Fey'lya that they would be allowed to return to Coruscant, and the arrest warrant had been lifted.

From the moment of his birth, the infant Skywalker was kept close to his parents due to their concerns for his safety. During this time, Skywalker was looked after by a nanny droid named Nanna. Shortly after his birth Skywalker accompanied his mother and father to Bilbringi , where his parents and a fellow Jedi, the Barabel Saba Sebatyne , watched an important meeting between New Republic representatives Han and Leia Organa Solo and the recently-captured Nom Anor.

While the meeting was going on, the infant Ben stayed in his mother's starship , Jade Shadow , accompanied by his cousin Jaina Solo and New Republic scientist and Skywalker family friend Danni Quee. Anor was set free once the meeting was concluded, and Skywalker and his parents returned to his birthplace, the Errant Venture.

While aboard the Venture , Skywalker broke out into an uncontrollable fit of crying which his parents could not ease. However, when his aunt Leia Organa Solo asked to hold him, to Luke and Mara Jade's surprise, the infant calmed down almost instantly. Skywalker remained aboard the Errant Venture while his parents were away during the New Republic victory at Talfaglio , and he was returned to Luke and Mara Jade after the battle.

The infant was later taken to stay with his aunt and uncle, Han and Leia Solo, in their home on Coruscant. Shesh initially attempted to take Skywalker in his aunt and uncle's home, but her plan was foiled. A short time later, Coruscant was attacked by the Yuuzhan Vong. Amidst the chaos of the battle, Shesh made a desperate second attempt to kidnap Skywalker. The Solos were confronted by Shesh in a Coruscant docking bay, but the Solos did not allow their nephew to fall into Shesh's hands.

They placed the infant under the care of their protocol droid , C-3PO , entrusting Ben's safety to him while they tried to apprehend Shesh. However, in the confusion, C-3PO was swept aboard a starferry named the Byrt , with Skywalker still in its arms.

Once the Solos realized that Skywalker had ended up on the Byrt , they quickly alerted Ben's parents. Luke and Mara Jade Skywalker promptly set out in their X-Wing starfighters , hoping to catch up to the ferry and retrieve their child. At the same time, Shesh notified the Yuuzhan Vong invasion force of Skywalker's presence aboard the Byrt.

The Yuuzhan Vong reached the Byrt first and began searching the vessel for Skywalker. C-3PO made his way to the starferry's escape pod bay in the hope of fleeing the craft with his charge intact, but Shesh and her warriors kept up their pursuit. The chaos of the skirmish aboard the Byrt upset Skywalker, who began wailing loudly despite C-3PO's best efforts to calm him. Shesh, hiding from Calrissian's advancing YVH droids across the corridor, heard Skywalker's cries and investigated.

Panicked, C-3PO stowed Skywalker in a locker and entered an escape pod in Bay 14 , from which he used his vocal functions to simulate the sounds of a crying Human infant. Shesh and her warriors fell for the bait and charged into the escape pod, hurling C-3PO back out into the bay.

Before Shesh could realize her error, the protocol droid ejected the pod into space and retrieved Skywalker from the locker. Skywalker was taken safely out of the battlezone, although Coruscant was abandoned to the Yuuzhan Vong. After the fall of Coruscant, the infant Skywalker was kept for several days in a Jedi stronghold called Eclipse Station , hidden on the Deep Core planet of the same name. Soon afterward, he was reunited with the rest of his family on the planet Hapes.

Ben's family had gathered there to pay their last respects to Ben's cousin Anakin Solo , who had been killed while fighting in a Jedi assault on the Yuuzhan Vong—controlled planet of Myrkr. A few days later, the scattered New Republic forces led by General Wedge Antilles were able to carve out a foothold on the planet Borleias , which had been used as a staging point for the attack on Coruscant.

The Skywalker family, Ben included, went to the planet and stayed in the military garrison established by the New Republic on still-contested Borleias. Mara Jade Skywalker had fully committed herself to staying with and raising Ben—not only to be able to spend time with her newborn child, but to protect him after Viqi Shesh's ill-fated kidnapping attempt.

During the Borleias occupation, Ben was carried by his mother everywhere she went, an arrangement that Luke Skywalker saw as irrational. Thirty-seven days into the Borleias occupation, Skywalker's parents left him with his Aunt Leia and Uncle Han once again, departing to the Yuuzhan Vong—controlled Coruscant to combat an evil sensed on the planet.

Believing that Ben wasn't safe on occupied Borleias, the Solos transported Ben to the Shelter , a space station situated in the perilous black hole cluster known as the Maw. After the crushing defeat and loss of Coruscant, the New Republic underwent a political metamorphosis.

The war with the Yuuzhan Vong continued on, with the New Republic—once the defenders of the Core —now trying to take it back. A massive reorganization ensued, and the new federal system was named the Galactic Alliance. In 29 ABY , the Galactic Alliance military forces began a great push toward Coruscant, toward taking back the Core and defeating the extra-galactic invaders once and for all. One of the keys to the Alliance war effort was the sentient planet Zonama Sekot —the seed of the original Yuuzhan Vong planet, Yuuzhan'tar , that had made its way to Ben's galaxy.

Luke Skywalker was able to ascertain the location of said planet, landing on it with Mara Jade and several other Jedi. While on Zonama Sekot, Luke revealed his visions of Ben's future to Mara, assuring her that he would make it through the war safely.

At long last, the Yuuzhan Vong threat had been defeated. There, Ben was reunited with his parents for the first time in two years. With his parents, Ben attended the Conclave on Zonama Sekot , a post-war Jedi meeting to discuss future directions for the Order. During Ben's short time on Zonama Sekot, he formed an attachment to the living planet, and it upset him when he had to depart.

The war was over, and Ben finally was together with his family. Slowly but surely, the galaxy worked to rebuild itself after the devastating Yuuzhan Vong War. However, the Skywalker family had another problem to deal with: Due to the anguish that he felt in the Force during the Yuuzhan Vong War, Ben closed himself off from the Force, hiding his presence from his family and friends. Ben would explain this by asserting that he wanted to "do things the hard way", like his non—Force-sensitive uncle Han Solo.

However, despite wanting to be cut off from the Force, Ben would still sometimes have Force-induced visions and dreams, frightening the young boy. Thus, even though he was of age, Ben did not attend the Jedi Praxeum on Ossus. By the year 35 ABY , Ben had grown into a mischievous child and was often looked after by Nanna when his parents were away on Jedi business. Ben often impressed his parents with his sheer mechanical aptitude, occasionally tricking Nanna into shutting down. After discovering the group's departure, Ben accompanied his parents and Tesar's mother, Saba Sebatyne, in a mission to find the missing Knights.

In their search, they came across the Colony , a group of nests of the insectoid Killik species, which had been lost for millennia. The Colony had been in a border dispute with the Chiss Ascendancy , the portion of the galaxy ruled by the Chiss species.

There, Ben's cousin Jacen Solo , who—while on a five-year journey to learn more of the Force—had also heard the call, discovered the source: Raynar Thul , a Jedi Knight who had been lost eight years before on the mission to Myrkr that had claimed Anakin Solo's life. The Skywalkers later found that the rogue Jedi Knights had been partially assimilated into one of the Killik nests, as well as the truth about Thul: While Ben and his family were on Yoggoy , one of the Colony-affiliated planets, the Skywalkers were attacked by hostile blue-black colored Killiks, a type previously unknown to the rest of the Colony.

These were in fact Gorog Killiks, part of the so-called Dark Nest, a shadowy influence which was able to hide its presence and its malign influence from the rest of the Colony.

After the skirmish, the Skywalkers met with the AWOL Jedi, who asserted that the Killiks were innocent victims in their border struggle with the Chiss. While the Gorog assassin was hiding aboard the Jade Shadow , Ben came across the insect and became friends with it. Ben saw the Killik as his "pet", but kept its presence a secret from his parents for fear that they would take the Gorog away from him.

Ben formed a bond with the Killik, to the point where he was able to understand the Killik. The Killik had its own agenda, however—to undermine Ben's relationship with his mother and ultimately turn him against her. Nevertheless, Luke and Mara became alerted that something strange was happening when a large amount of gelmeat went missing, seemingly more than the child could eat himself.

The Skywalkers finally discovered the Killik stowaway itself some time later. Saba Sebatyne, who had stayed behind in Colony space, was attacked and badly injured by a Joiner Dark Jedi named Welk , who had disappeared from known space after kidnapping Raynar Thul on the Myrkr mission eight years before.

Sebatyne was gravely wounded, but survived and realized that Gorog Killiks may have sneaked aboard the Jade Shadow. Mara was stunned by the news and immediately rushed into Ben's room and forced Ben to confess that he had been hiding the Killik. While Mara and Ben argued, the Killik attacked, injuring her, but was in turn wounded in the thorax by Mara's lightsaber.

Mara, irate at Ben's disobedience, ordered him to go explain his actions to his father. In the meantime, Alema Rar, one of the Jedi who had originally ventured into the Colony space, had become a Joiner to the Gorog nest.

Under the influence of the Gorog, she unsuccessfully attacked Leia Organa Solo and was stunned, drugged, and brought to Ossus for an examination. Under the eye of resident Jedi healer Cilghal , she was examined side-by-side with Ben's incapacitated Gorog friend. The experiments performed on her revealed much about the mental bond shared by Joiners.

Once the tests ended, Rar found a way to escape, bringing the Gorog along with her. Ben was present at the time of Rar's escape with the Gorog and was greatly saddened by the loss of his friend. As Rar and the Gorog sped away from Ossus in a stolen skiff , Ben received a final message from the Killik, who said that she wanted Ben to be happy.

When he told Luke of the Gorog's message, Luke realized that Ben had become part-Joiner, as he could not have felt it through the Force. Ben's parents departed soon after to return to Colony space, leaving Ben alone once more in the Ossus Jedi Praxeum. Ben was initially depressed when he heard that his parents were leaving, but he quickly cheered up when his cousin Jacen Solo promised to stay with him on Ossus in Luke and Mara's absence. While under the care of his cousin Jacen, Ben slowly opened himself up to the Force.

Ben started to use the Force in a limited form but was only comfortable using the Force around Jacen. Jacen decided to allow Ben to come with him, although Djo did not know that he would be accompanying Jacen. Since the meeting was supposed to be in secret, Ben and Jacen sneaked into the Hapan Fountain Palace , the residence of the Queen Mother. However, Ben used his mechanical skills to deactivate the droid and entered Djo's chambers.

Upon meeting the Queen Mother, Ben met her newborn daughter and learned that Jacen was the father. However, when Ben revealed his desire to inform Han and Leia about their new granddaughter, Djo insisted that Ben keep her existence secret. Suddenly, DDA, having been reactivated, alerted them to an insect infestation in the ceiling. Using his partial immersion into the Killik hive-mind, Skywalker sensed that the insects that DDA had detected were of Gorog.

Through the hive-mind, he learned that the Gorog were intent on killing Jacen and Djo's child. Panicked, Skywalker ran toward a hidden escape tunnel that he had sensed, hoping to escape the Palace. However, Djo and Jacen would not allow him to leave through the tunnel, as they believed that the escape tunnel would lead them into a Gorog trap.

At that moment, the Gorog broke through the ceiling, attacking the group. DDA sprang into action to defend them, but Skywalker, who was in Djo's Force grasp, thrashed about, screaming at the droid not to kill the Gorog. To stop Ben's flailing and shouting, Jacen used the Force to pinch down on the boy's carotid arteries in his neck, putting Ben into a deep sleep. In a frenzied battle, the group—with Djo's child in tow—was able to escape the ambush.

Jacen used a memory rub on his cousin to eliminate any of Ben's recollections about seeing the new baby, and the two continued with their planned camping trip to Endor , where they visited Moon Falls.

Bwua'tu had impounded their ship, the Millennium Falcon , in the Utegetu Nebula for breaking the Alliance blockade placed on the region. This caused widespread debate amongst the Jedi ranks, with Jedi arguing over whether they should risk the possibility of war to save Han and Luke.

On Ossus with Jacen, Ben witnessed one such argument between several Jedi and received a assurance from Jacen, his cousin Jaina Solo, and Zekk that none of the prisoners were in any danger whatsoever. During their discussion, which included Ben describing their trip to Moon Falls on Endor, Jacen had to repeatedly mind-rub Ben to keep him from remembering the incident on Hapes.

The issues concerning the Jedi Order's role in the conflict caused a rift in the Order, with one side led by Jedi Master Corran Horn arguing that the Jedi should support the Galactic Alliance on the issue, and another side led by Master Kyp Durron contending that the Jedi should keep their own counsel on the matter.

On Ossus, Ben Skywalker was present at a meeting of the Jedi Order called by Luke Skywalker, where he directly addressed the division in the Order, asking every member of the Jedi Order to rethink their commitment to the Jedi. Luke asked the Jedi to place the good of the Order over all else, and to obey the directions chosen by their superiors.

If one had different loyalties or priorities ahead of the Order, Luke asked them to leave the Jedi Order. After the meeting, several of the Masters came together to discuss what just occurred. Feeling that they would be out of place in the discussion, Han Solo offered to let Ben work on the Millennium Falcon with him, a prospect that excited the boy.

However, Master Kenth Hamner asked Solo to stay with them, which disappointed Ben, due to the fact that he would not be able to test his mechanical abilities on his uncle's starship. Dejected, Ben returned home with his droid Nanna.

Across the galaxy, in the Unknown Regions, the Swarm War raged on. Skirmishes at Thyferra and Sarm culminated in the devastating Battle of Tenupe. In the climactic battle, the Allied force defeated the Dark Nest—influenced Colony forces, causing the death of millions. The Swarm War was finally over. Over the next several years, Ben Skywalker continued to train with Jacen Solo, becoming his apprentice.

However, he was not a true Jedi, as he had not completed any of the Academy tests. Ben had progressed slowly and cautiously, but had grown to be more open and trusting of the Force, which Jacen Solo surmised would keep him from giving in to the temptations of the dark side or hormone rushes typical for Human teenagers.

Skywalker had become a precocious, bright, and inventive boy, one that was largely obedient to Solo. In 40 ABY, Skywalker traveled with Solo on a covert mission to the world of Adumar to investigate whether the Dammant Killers missile-manufacturing plant was selling arms to planets that had become close to rebellion in the few years between 36 ABY and 40 ABY.

The two posed as Jedi investigators checking up on the plant for the Galactic Alliance, and were nervously guided through the facility by Adumari Dammant Killers employee Testan ke Harran.

Solo and Skywalker exploited Jedi mystique to intimidate Harran and the plant workers. On their tour, the adept Jedi felt uneasiness through the Force pertaining to a section of a wall. Astonishing Harran, Skywalker ignited his lightsaber and cut through the wall, revealing a secret section of the plant containing missiles that had not been reported to the Galactic Alliance.

Their secret exposed, a force of twenty guards came out to confront the Jedi. The confrontation resulted in a firefight between Jacen Solo and the guards, with Solo holding off the Adumari while Ben relayed the report on the unreported missiles back to the Galactic Alliance.

Their mission complete, Solo and Skywalker escaped the plant itself by hitching a ride on the top of a turbolift car, using Skywalker's grapnel hook to get a grip on the building—pulling them outside—and subsequently using a series of Force acrobatics to escape. Upon escaping the plant, they soon found themselves in the streets of the Adumari city of Cartann , with an Adumari fighter in hot pursuit.

They were able to use the Force to destroy the fighter, ending the immediate danger. After transmitting evidence of the Dammant Killers' crime to the Galactic Alliance, Skywalker and Solo boarded an armored Lambda -class shuttle and returned to Coruscant.

The operation was motivated by intelligence indicating that the Corellian government was making military preparations to bolster their political moves toward independence—secretly constructing an assault fleet and also attempting to render Centerpoint Station operational once again.

More generally, the strike was conceived as a show of force—a means of eliminating the problem of Corellia's stridently anti-Coruscant government and discouraging dissent and unrest within the Alliance.

The mission was dubbed " Operation Roundabout ". Solo and Skywalker would comprise one of five Jedi teams on Operation Roundabout, Team Mynock , with the objective of destroying or disabling Centerpoint. Solo and Skywalker were to be assisted in their mission by a Galactic Alliance spy, Toval Seyah , who possessed an intricate knowledge in Centerpoint Station's layout and workings.

Seyah put them through several simulated scenarios, designed to prepare them for facing a Corellian Security Force outfit in an effort to reach the station's main control room and ultimately destroy the station. Skywalker, however, repeatedly failed these simulations, causing Solo to doubt whether Skywalker should take part in the mission. Skywalker was left alone and had to try to complete the mission by himself.

Despite his fear of being alone on a dangerous mission, Skywalker stayed committed to the objective. Determined, Skywalker set out for the station's repulsor control chamber. Using his smaller size and his skill in stealth, Skywalker was able to sneak past CorSec checkpoints and guard stations to get closer to his destination. However, while sneaking around inside the station, Skywalker surmised that the only reason that he was forced to move so slowly and deliberately was because the enemy knew they were facing Jedi.

Thinking that he didn't have to be a Jedi at that particular moment, he removed his Jedi robe , took all his Jedi accoutrements off, and dashed toward his destination. While sprinting toward the chamber, Skywalker was stopped by a security guard, who denied him entrance to the chamber. Skywalker responded by tricking the man, telling him that his father was in the chamber and that Skywalker wanted to make sure he was all right.

He then darted off, the guard reluctantly allowing him to pass. Having tricked the guard into letting him pass, Skywalker continued his approach to the repulsor control chamber. However, he ran into a group of two CorSec officers and a combat droid guarding the entrance. At first, Skywalker tried to guilt them into letting him through, but when that failed, Skywalker attacked them, destroying the droid and escaping into the control room as the agents sealed the door.

Inside the control room at last, Skywalker looked for the main control console. What he found instead was Anakin Sal-Solo , a droid that had been programmed by Thrackan Sal-Solo to believe that it was Skywalker's late cousin Anakin Solo, who had been dead for nearly fifteen years. Anakin Sal-Solo believed he was Anakin Solo's spirit inhabiting a mutated clone body, with one purpose: In reality, Anakin Solo had used Centerpoint Station years before in the Yuuzhan Vong War, and the Corellian teams trying to get the station operational again needed Solo's biometric signature to use it again.

So, Anakin Sal-Solo was built to utilize the late Jedi's fingerprints and brain waves, in the hopes that Centerpoint would respond. Seeing as Anakin Sal-Solo was the only thing standing in the way of Skywalker carrying out his mission, Skywalker attempted to use a holocam to take Sal-Solo's picture and show it to him, proving that he was actually a droid. Sal-Solo pulled it away, examining it to make sure it was not a blaster disguised as a holocam.

Skywalker felt guilty for telling the droid that it was not Solo, but nevertheless ordered the droid to use its knowledge of the repulsor system to destroy the station. However, the droid refused to take the lives of those aboard, but promised Skywalker that he would not allow it to be reactivated by the Corellians, although it would mean the droid's eventual destruction. Skywalker and the droid shared a tearful farewell, and Skywalker departed the chamber.

Solo and Skywalker then escaped the station along with Seyah. After the mission had concluded, Skywalker refused to talk about what had happened. He only related the events to his father and wasn't able to bring himself to accept congratulations or speak to anyone else.

Thereafter, Skywalker would have a guilty look in his eyes when reminded of the operation, remembering his encounter with and subsequent destruction of Anakin Sal-Solo. The meeting was held to negotiate the return of the planet Tralus to the Five Worlds government, after it had been captured by Galactic Alliance Admiral Matric Klauskin during Operation Roundabout.

Luke Skywalker led a contingent of Jedi to protect the diplomats, and Ben Skywalker was among them. The first meeting between the two sides lasted for four hours, with neither side reaching a conclusion. The diplomats and their Jedi guardians then retired for the night. While Skywalker and the rest slept, the station came under attack by a mysterious black-armored commando force, catching them unaware. The Jedi quickly moved to try and fight them off, but Skywalker was not able to partake in the battle.

To protect him, Jacen Solo flipped Skywalker's bed over as he slept, covering him with it to shield him from their mysterious attackers. Despite their best efforts to save the diplomats, Aidel Saxan was killed with a blaster bolt to the chest.

However, they were able to save Gilad Pellaeon from any harm. The motive for the attack was unknown, but Han Solo hypothesized that it was aimed at Jacen Solo, as retaliation for Operation Roundabout. Upon hearing this theory, Skywalker became frightened, since if the commandos were after Solo because of Centerpoint, they would also be after him.

After the attack, Skywalker was pulled aside by his parents for a discussion over his thoughts on the matter. While conversing with them, Skywalker suggested that they, as a family, go to Corellia and imprison Thrackan Sal-Solo because he thought that it could stop a future war with Corellia.

That proposal was rejected by Luke Skywalker, who believed that if Corellia truly wanted independence, they should have it. Ben disagreed, stating that according to Jacen Solo, the secession of Corellia would cause unrest. His parents went on to tell him to watch out for people who said that they know the right answer on an issue, referencing his constant agreeing with Jacen Solo. Afterward, Skywalker related to them that sometimes he hated being a Jedi, a feeling that his father had as well.

While investigating the scene of the assault, Jacen Solo discovered tassels with inscriptions written upon them in different languages. While trying to decode the message, Solo was referred to the world of Lorrd , a repository of academic information.

In the hopes that the scholars of Lorrd could translate the message, Solo traveled to the planet, bringing Skywalker along with him. Solo contacted the Jedi assigned to Lorrd, Nelani Dinn , telling her about the tassels and asking her to find someone able to decode them. Upon landing in Lorrd City and meeting Dinn, they were pointed to Dr. Heilan Rotham , a linguist who specialized in the field of tactile writing and recording methods.

The three Jedi traveled together to Dr. Rotham's office, who succeeded in translating the first inscription. But before Rotham could continue her work, Dinn was called away by an emergency transmission.

Leaving Rotham with the tassels, Skywalker and Solo went off to accompany Dinn on her duty. The Jedi trio raced to the Lorrd City Spaceport but were faced with an odd situation upon arriving; a Galactic Civil War veteran named Ordith Huarr was aboard an old Y-wing starfighter , and was threatening to launch missiles at housing districts unless he could speak with a Jedi.

Dinn tried to reason with Huarr, who believed that he had seen and spoken to a Force ghost of his late wife. Although Dinn tried to convince Huarr to disarm himself, Solo decided to use the Force to disable the Y-wing and end the threat. While Dinn admonished Solo for using such extreme methods, Skywalker examined the Y-wing. Skywalker felt a surge of despair and determination from Huarr, and screamed for the other two Jedi and Lorrd Security Force agents to get away from the vehicle.

Huarr then fired the missiles, destroying the starfighter but leveling the building in front of him. Skywalker was shell-shocked afterward, but cheered up when he was informed that there were no casualties in the explosion. As a reward for his actions, Solo let Skywalker have the rest of that day to himself. While enjoying his day off in the spaceport, Skywalker found a shuttle that matched one that had been seen escaping Toryaz Station after the earlier attack.

Skywalker checked the spaceport's registry and found that the shuttle belonged to a Commenor native named Brisha Syo , who was not present at the time. Skywalker reported the suspicious nature of the shuttle to Lorrd Security Force Lieutenant Neav Samran and placed a tracking device on the shuttle's hull in case Syo sneaked aboard and discreetly left.

Skywalker returned to Dr. Rotham's office after finding the shuttle, entering just as Rotham revealed her translations of the tassels. Once Rotham was finished, Skywalker told Dinn and Solo of the shuttle's discovery. Skywalker was awoken the next day by Solo, who informed them that another situation that required Jedi assistance had been reported.

Inside, a man had strapped explosives between himself and a hostage named Serom Haxan , and was holding a large group of beings against their will. Solo went up to speak with the man, who identified himself as Doctor Movac Arisster , a professor at the University of Pangalactic Cultural Studies. Arisster believed that he had met with deceased Old Republic era Jedi Knight Aayla Secura , who instructed him to get the attention of the Jedi. Arisster was stricken with cancer and had little time left to live and therefore wanted to live on after his death by defeating a Jedi.

He intended to accomplish this by denying the Jedi a happy ending, stopping the Jedi from saving his hostages. Solo tried to negotiate with Arisster, but found it impossible.

Solo used the Force to detonate the explosives, killing Haxan and Arisster, but saving the rest of the captives. After the incident, Skywalker and Dinn argued with Solo over his methods, with Skywalker telling Solo that he had done wrong. These odd encounters continued to occur, as the day after the trio of Jedi had to save the kidnapped daughter of a prominent businesswoman, who was being held in steam tunnels beneath the School of Conceptual Design.

She was rescued after Skywalker crawled through a steam pipe and dropping into the kidnapped girl's chamber, defending it against all comers until Solo, Dinn, and the security forces could storm and secure the tunnels. The kidnapping's mastermind, who died during the attack, was a frustrated radical who wanted to replace Lorrd's planetary government.

His surviving allies stated that the girl appeared to him in a dream and recommended the kidnapping. Later that same day, a man named Borth Pazz , dressed in Jedi-style robes and wielding a nonfunctional lightsaber stolen from a museum, climbed to the top of a building and threatened to leap to his death unless he was admitted to the Jedi Order.

Solo climbed to the summit to speak with the man, who had no Force capabilities whatsoever, and allowed the man to jump. Skywalker and Dinn used the Force to slow the man's fall, leaving him with only a broken ankle. As the man was carted off by medical personnel, Skywalker received a transmission from Lieutenant Samran, who informed the Jedi that Brisha Syo had been found and taken into custody.

The Jedi trio went directly to the jailhouse where Syo was being kept by LSF forces and proceeded to interrogate her. Syo quickly and readily admitted to her involvement with the odd disturbances that had been occurring on Lorrd, and revealed her Force-sensitivity. Syo stated that she heard the thoughts of people planning evil deeds through the Force, and she told those people that their victory would be greater if they defeated the Jedi.

She also admitted that she was present during the events at Toryaz Station but denied that she was actually involved in the assault. She related that she was watching Jacen Solo and came to Lorrd to follow and test him. She then invited the Jedi to her home, a planetoid in a star system in the vicinity of Bimmiel.

Skywalker warned that it was a trap, but Solo decided to accept her invitation. Skywalker reluctantly decided to accompany him and Dinn. Darth Vectivus , a Sith Lord whose spirit resided in the Home. The Jedi and Syo traveled to her home , which was a former mining station that was once inhabited by a species of mynock-like sentients.

Over time, the species learned to wield the Force and permeated the caverns with dark side energy. Because you receive sedating medication during the procedure, it is unsafe for you to drive or operate machinery for 8 hours after the procedure.

What Happens After a Colonoscopy? It's not clear what calorie intake level brings on starvation mode and whether the effects are increased the lower the calorie intake. Kristie Leong writes that 1, calories per day is the absolute lowest level one should drop to when dieting.

Otherwise, Leong says, the body will start to conserve fat, making weight loss more difficult. In some instances, a very-low-calorie diet of fewer than calories per day may be prescribed by a doctor if the patient has a significant amount of weight to lose.

The diet, which consists of specially formulated liquid shakes and bars, is meant to kick-start weight loss for obese people who may experience complications, like high blood pressure, because of their excess weight. These diets must be undertaken only under medical supervision due to the dangers of consuming too few calories and losing weight rapidly.

These include fatigue, constipation, nausea and diarrhea as well as more serious side effects like gallstones. According to the Weight-Control Information Network, very-low-calorie diets, requiring medical supervision, generate the same amount of weight loss as low-calorie diets over the long term.
