An abandoned 33rd mortar loaded with white phosphorus is found nearby. The phosphorus strike completely obliterates the company. Walker shows no outward remorse, and pushes the others on despite their obvious anger and trauma.
Shortly after, Colonel Konrad begins communicating with Walker over a radio they find inside the Gate. He taunts Walker over his inner doubts and fears as tensions rise between the team, making Walker adjust his belief that Konrad is innocent. Soon, Walker comes across two men tied to a bridge, with snipers positioned on all sides. Konrad tells Walker that the two men are criminals, and orders Walker to pick one to execute. Riggs tells Delta that Insurgent control of the water will cripple the 33rd's operations in Dubai and bring peace, but only if they aid him.
When the water trucks the group seize fail to break free of the 33rd's defenses, Riggs intentionally crashes them. After recovering, Walker comes across a mortally wounded Riggs, who revealed that he wanted to destroy the water supply no matter the cost by manipulating the Insurgents.
Knowledge of what the 33rd did in Dubai would cause the whole region to declare war on the United States in retaliation, a war which America would lose.
Though a costly war has now been averted, the entire city will begin dying of dehydration within four days thanks to Walker's actions.
The player can choose to kill Riggs or let him be burned alive. As the journey progressed, all three men gradually become edgier and more violent.
Walker begins suffering from vivid hallucinations as they fight to the top of the building. Delta finds the Radioman, who is calm and surrenders peacefully.
Lugo and the Radioman set up the signal for Walker, then Lugo shoots the Radioman repeatedly before the other two can intervene. A confused Delta team is then shot down en route to Konrad's hideout. Konrad appears to a disoriented Walker, chastising him about his failures and weakness.
Walker and Adams regroup at the crash site, but must fight their way to Lugo's position behind enemy lines. When they arrive, they find Lugo lynched by a mob of citizens, angered at the Americans' destruction of the water supply. When attempts to resuscitate Lugo fail, Walker and Adams then disperse the crowd. On this point the player can choose to kill the civilians that lynched Lugo or just give a warning for them to get away. After that, they assault Konrad's headquarters.
Walker's hallucinations are nearly constant at this point. The two are soon surrounded by the last remnants of Konrad's men. Walker attempts to surrender to gain access inside, but an enraged Adams insists on fighting to the death and shames Walker into running for safety inside the tower.
At this point in the game, the truth about Colonel Konrad and the events in Dubai is revealed. Weary, grieving, and on the brink of death, Walker stumbles to the entrance of the tower. Upon entering, Walker is saluted by the remnants of the 33rd, who surrender to him.
Walker demands to know where Konrad is, and is directed to Konrad's penthouse. Walker arrives at the penthouse of the tower without incident and confronts Konrad. At first, Colonel Konrad appears to be the paranoid, charismatic force behind the atrocities Walker was hoping for, until Walker finds his decaying corpse on the penthouse deck. Captain Walker has been suffering from a dissociative disorder to rationalize the actions he and the player has witnessed and carried out.
A study in the June 1 issue of the journal SLEEP demonstrates that online cognitive behavioral therapy CBT for chronic insomnia significantly improves insomnia severity, daytime fatigue, and sleep quality.
Online treatment also reduces erroneous beliefs about sleep and pre-sleep mental arousal. Results indicate that 81 percent of treated participants 30 of 37 reported at least mild improvement in their sleep after completing the five-week program, including 35 percent 13 of 37 who rated themselves as much or very much improved.
Thirty percent of treatment group completers were receiving an additional hour of sleep at the end of the program. Those who received treatment also developed healthier attitudes about sleep and were less likely to report having an overactive mind at bedtime. According to principal investigator Norah Vincent, PhD, psychologist at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada, the researchers were surprised by the significant results in the absence of any ongoing support from a clinician.
The treatment program consisted of psychoeducation about insomnia, information concerning sleep hygiene, stimulus control instruction, relaxation training, sleep restriction and cognitive therapy.
The study involved adults with chronic insomnia who were referred to a teaching hospital behavioral medicine sleep clinic or who had responded to a newspaper advertisement.Quotes and Sayings About Depression Depression quotes and sayings about depression can provide insight into what it's like living with depression as well as inspiration and a feeling of "someone gets it.
