This deception fooled the Yuuzhan Vong, but Rar was faced with other, more personal issues. Her partisan war against the enemy was drawing her close to the dark side of the Force, and Master Skywalker, the head of the Jedi Order, felt that Rar was putting her integrity as a Jedi at risk. The Rar sisters soon suffered another loss; the New Plympto resistance became successful enough that the frustrated Yuuzhan Vong decided to raze the planet, rather than continue to attempt subjugation. All life was wiped from the surface of the planet, rendering it uninhabitable and killing seven million sentients. The Rar sisters were only just able to flee in time, hiding with several thousand other beings aboard a fleet of intrasystem ore miners until help arrived in the form of the Corellian cruiser Nebula Chaser, already loaded with refugees. The captain of the Nebula Chaser, Pollux, promised the Jedi sisters safe asylum. Many during the war had sought personal gain in turning wanted Jedi over to the Yuuzhan Vong, but the Rar sisters accepted the captain's offer and boarded the cruiser.
There was little to be done but complete the mission as swiftly as possible, and with Drark's longblaster Rar prepared for the attack on the cloning grashal. She supported her fellow team members as they entered, using the longblaster to kill Yuuzhan Vong warriors who came too close. Ultimately, Anakin Solo surrendered himself to the Force and let its energy control him, using the vast power to fight off the Yuuzhan Vong and wipe out all the voxyn cloning tissue reserves. At some point, Rar handed the longblaster over to Jaina Solo, who protected her brother as he died. With the voxyn queen on the run, the surviving members of the team relocated to a hidden warren while Tesar Sebatyne sought to find the queen. Lowbacca reported back that the Yuuzhan Vong were moving Solo's body, and Alema Rar, along with Zekk, Jaina Solo and Tahiri Veila, set off to recover the young Jedi's corpse.
The campaign for Borleias was ultimately successful, and granted the New Republic government enough time to set up its new headquarters on the water world of Dac, home to the Quarren and Mon Calamari species. The Myrkr survivors, in the meantime, were again reduced in number with the death of Ganner Rhysode on conquered Coruscant, before being replenished by the return of Jacen Solo, whose life Rhysode had fought to save. Rar, who had been traveling with Tahiri Veila and Zekk as their temporary leader, took her small group to Dac on a refugee convoy, as she had no duties or a Jedi Master to issue her with directives. On Dac, Luke Skywalker had acted alongside the new Chief of State, the Alderaanian Cal Omas, to create a High Council, with Jedi and non-Jedi representatives in equal numbers. Rar contacted Jedi Master Tresina Lobi, who held a seat on the Council, and asked the Chev woman to query Skywalker on what her next actions should be. It was decided by Omas and Skywalker that a ceremony would be held to honor the Myrkr strike team, and that the survivors would be elevated to the status of Jedi Knight.
Without the leader of the Order, or knowledge of the whereabouts or status of the missing Jedi, a meeting was convened in the apartment of Master Tresina Lobi in Coral City's Quarren Tower. Rar attended alongside a group of whichever Jedi could be mustered, and Master Kenth Hamner addressed the assembled Knights and Masters on the issue of the Skywalkers and their companions. The group discussed the idea of inserting a strike team onto Coruscant to interrogate a mysterious figure, the Prophet Yu'shaa, who was leading a resistance movement against the Yuuzhan Vong rulers and was suspected to hold knowledge on the whereabouts of Zonama Sekot. The similarity of the plan to that of the Mission to Myrkr was obvious, as were the risks, and it was intended as a last resort; if Skywalker and his companions failed to make contact within a week, Hamner planned to assemble the strike team of Jedi, of which Rar would be a member.
Tenel Ka Djo still remained the Hapan Queen Mother, Jacen Solo had vanished on a five year journey to explore the Force, and Tekli and Tahiri spent the years on Zonama Sekot. For Rar, as with Jaina Solo, Zekk, Lowbacca and Tesar, moving on was difficult. The Jedi Knight carried out an extensive intelligence-gathering mission on the Bothans, who had since the death of Chief of State Borsk Fey'lya during the Battle of Coruscant wished to enact speciecide against the Yuuzhan Vong. A Bothan politician, Reh'mwa, formed a faction of fundamentalists known as the True Victory Party in order to hunt down Zonama Sekot and eliminate the species. By 35 ABY, Rar had discovered that Reh'mwa and his followers had intelligence pertaining to the living planet's location and were provisioning a cruiser, the Avengeance, for an attack on the exiled Yuuzhan Vong. The Twi'lek duly issued a report to the Jedi High Council.
Rar responded with scorn to Skywalker's overtures and instead began discussing R2-D2, Skywalker's parents, and the sequestered recordings the droid possessed. Despite Solo's skepticism, Skywalker granted Rar a hearing, and the Twi'lek explained that she could reveal the identity of the Jedi Master's mother via the codes she possessed. She issued a code to R2-D2, and the droid played a holorecording of Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala together in the latter's apartment, days before the enaction of Order 66 and the near-extinction of the Jedi Order.

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is a degenerative disease of the brain and nervous system tissue that infects members of the cervid family (deer, elk, etc.). CWD is present in white-tailed deer in Wisconsin but has not yet been detected in an elk in Wisconsin. All hunter-harvested elk, and all elk that die of other causes that a viable sample can be taken from, are tested for CWD.
The Elk Advisory Committee reviews and makes recommendations on the reintroduction and management of wild elk. The committee advises the Wildlife Policy Team on a variety of topics such as herd monitoring and growth strategies, research priorities, herd health issues and other reintroduction strategies. The committee will provide input on other elk herd management and policy decisions as requested.
People normally inherit one copy of the UBE3A gene from each parent, and both copies of this gene are active in most of the body's tissues. However, in nerve cells (neurons) in the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system, only the copy inherited from a person's mother (the maternal copy) is active. This parent-specific gene activation results from a phenomenon called genomic imprinting. If the maternal copy is lost because of a chromosomal change or a gene variant, a person will have no working copies of the UBE3A gene in some parts of the brain. 1e1e36bf2d
