Hibernaculum (Grimm)

"Hibernaculum" is the 17th episode of season 4 of the supernatural drama television series Grimm and the 83rd episode overall, which premiered on April 10, 2015, on the cable network NBC. The episode was directed by John Behring. Opening quote: "Ah! It was colder than ice. Nick, Wu are called to investigate a rare Wesen that leaves its victims dead from extreme hypothermia, frozen solid within just a matter of minutes. According to Rosalee they're called Varme Tyv - a Blue Racer snake-like Wesen, which if/when away from their hibernacula during winter, can't survive without taking body heat from someone else. Since they lack the ability to create their own body heat, they too would freeze to death otherwise. Other sources of heat would be useless for survival since their physiology can only process human body heat. If safely overwintered in their hibernacula, where they huddle for heat with their own kind, they're otherwise harmless during summer or warm weather. Nick & co', after finding further victims, they attempt to ascertain if they're after just one or more culprits.

When they run down the main suspect to his hibernaculum, on attempting to disentangle him from the others, they inadvertently wake up the whole cluster of Varma Tyv, who had all been hibernating in a tangled, huddled heap in the centre of the heated underground cellar room. Startled out of hibernation, they defend themselves by attacking the intruding trio. Massively outnumbered, the trio attempt to flee back out. Just as they're about to be overpowered by the charging hoard, the now exposed and therefore incapacitated by the cold bunch, thankfully start to freeze before they can inflict much harm. Nick is however overcome with guilt, since according to their investigation only one of them was guilty of murder, Nick's unable to let the rest die when innocent of any crime. Nick decides they need to carry them all back inside, back into cozy hibernation, before they freeze to death; the guilty murderous one, however, is left to suffer the same fate he'd meted out to his victims. Meanwhile, Juliette starts to feel that she is losing her humanity and attempts to seek help from Rosalee & Monroe.

Angered by the fact that Nick had disclosed her'secret-Hexenbiest-state' to Hank, she fiercely woges, shocking them all leaves in a huff. Instead now intent on seeking revenge against Adalind, she pursuits Adalind when she's out shopping and overcome with vengeful emotions, telekinetically attempts to dislodge a large stone gargoyle off the side of a building onto her head, in the hopes she's crushed beneath. Adalind's alert'bodyguard/jailer' saves her just in the nick of time, but not before Adalind is able to get a glimpse of Juliette reflected in the window before her. Now aware Juliette means to kill her and fearing for her life, she begs new Royal Kenneth to avenge her before Juliette is able to strike again. Kenneth refuses. Elsewhere, Captain Renard continues to suffer from mysterious bleeding and disturbing visions - where large disembodied black-taloned, red daemon-like claws, clutch at him. While elsewhere, Monroe works toward coming to grips with the Wesenrein incident which still invades his mind and left him with somewhat PTSD-like symptoms and hand tremors which are foiling his much loved clock restoring endeavours.

Sensitive Rosalee, first probes comforts him, ensuring him their "clocks have been reset", so not to fear as they've yet much time left to continue enjoying their lives. As Nick returns to a dark and now empty-without-Juliette home and lost in thought, he's overcome with visions of his aunt, he recalls words once told him that now seem far more prophetically charged: "The misfortune of our family is passing on to you. I know you love Juliette, but you must end it and never see Juliette again."... The episode was viewed by 4.76 million people, earning a 1.1/4 in the 18-49 rating demographics on the Nielson ratings scale, ranking third on its timeslot and seventh for the night in the 18-49 demographics, behind The Amazing Race, Hawaii Five-0, Last Man Standing, Blue Bloods, 20/20, Shark Tank. This was a 5% increase in viewership from the previous episode, watched by 4.51 million viewers with a 1.0/4. This means that 1.1 percent of all households with televisions watched the episode, while 4 percent of all households watching television at that time watched it.

With DVR factoring in, the episode was watched by 6.87 million viewers and had a 1.8 ratings share in the 18-49 demographics. "Hibernaculum" received mixed-to-positive reviews. Les Chappell from The A. V. Club gave the episode a "C+" rating and wrote, "It's difficult to pin down my feelings on this week's episode of Grimm, because more than any episode in recent memory, this is one where my appreciation of what's going on fluctuates wildly with every scene; the various twists in the case of the week were confounded by the way it stretched credulity by this show's standards. Interesting parts of the Monroe and Juliette stories were introduced and immediately pushed aside by the next scene, and for a weekly case, succeeding on its own merits, it's infuriating to see the show get rid of its complexity in favor of trying to emulate The Walking Dead — the worst season of Walking Dead

Division of Bowman

The Division of Bowman is an Australian Electoral Division in Queensland. The division was created in 1949 and is named for David Bowman, an early leader of the Australian Labor Party, in Queensland; the seat consists of the entirety of Redland City, located in the eastern suburbs of Brisbane, includes the suburbs of Capalaba, Redland Bay, Thorneside, Alexandra Hills, Mount Cotton, Wellington Point and Victoria Point. The division incorporates various islands of Moreton Bay including Coochiemudlo Island, the inhabited southern Bay Islands and the big tourist destination of North Stradbroke Island, it is a residential electorate with some crops, various light industries and tourism. Bowman has traditionally been a marginal seat changing hands between the Australian Labor Party and the Liberal Party. Notably, the electorate has been won by the party with the largest national two party preferred vote at every election from 1954 to 2001. However, in the 2004 election, an energetic campaign by Dr Andrew Laming, an electoral redistribution, saw Bowman returned to the Liberal Party by a significant margin.

The division was considered by pollsters such as Antony Green to be a safe Liberal seat. In the 2007 election, the electorate experienced a strong swing of 8.86% towards the Australian Labor Party. This made it second only to McEwen as the most marginal seat in the country, although the 2009 electoral redistribution in Queensland saw the margin notionally reduced further, to 0.005%, making Bowman Australia's most marginal seat at the time. Laming went on to retain the seat comfortably for the Liberal National Party of Queensland in: 2010, regaining ground with a 9.51% swing towards him.

Trifolium albopurpureum

Trifolium albopurpureum is a species of clover known by the common name rancheria clover. It is native to the west coast of North America from British Columbia and the Sierra Nevada, to Baja California, it can be found in a wide variety of habitats, including chaparral and woodlands, grasslands and montane locales. Trifolium albopurpureum is erect in form; the leaflets are 1 to 3 centimeters long, the herbage is hairy. The inflorescence is a spike of flowers measuring 0.5 to 2 centimeters wide. Each flower has a calyx of sepals with narrow lobes that taper into a bristle-shaped point and are coated in long hairs. Within the calyx is the flower corolla, purple and white in color. Trifolium albopurpureum is discussed as comprising three varieties; these are: Trifolium albopurpureum var. albopurpureum Trifolium albopurpureum var. dichotomum Trifolium albopurpureum var. olivaceum "Jepson Manual Treatment for Trifolium albopurpureum".

DWIM

DWIM computer systems attempt to anticipate what users intend to do, correcting trivial errors automatically rather than blindly executing users' explicit but incorrect inputs. The term was coined by Warren Teitelman in his DWIM package for BBN Lisp, part of his PILOT system, some time before 1966. Teitelman's DWIM package "correct errors automatically or with minor user intervention" to a spell checker for natural language. Teitelman and his Xerox PARC colleague Larry Masinter described the philosophy of DWIM in the Interlisp programming environment: Although most users think of DWIM as a single identifiable package, it embodies a pervasive philosophy of user interface design: at the user interface level, system facilities should make reasonable interpretations when given unrecognized input....the style of interface used throughout Interlisp allows the user to omit various parameters and have these default to reasonable values... DWIM is an embodiment of the idea that the user is interacting with an agent who attempts to interpret the user's request from contextual information.

Since we want the user to feel that he is conversing with the system, he should not be stopped and forced to correct himself or give additional information in situations where the correction or information is obvious. Critics of DWIM claimed that it was "tuned to the particular typing mistakes to which Teitelman was prone, no others" and called it "Do What Teitelman Means," "Do What Interlisp Means" or claimed DWIM stood for "Damn Warren's Infernal Machine." The DWIM concept has been adopted by users of the GNU Emacs text editor to describe Emacs Lisp functions or commands that "do the right thing" depending on context, do not correct the user's typing. The Emacs wiki gives the example of a file copy command, able to deduce the destination path from a split window configuration that contains two dired windows, one of which displays the source path. DWIM functionality is mentioned in the command's name.
