The Court has conducted a de novo review of the thorough report and recommendation of the magistrate judge.

2. The complaint is dismissed with prejudice for failure to prosecute and failure to comply with a court order pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b).
3. The clerk is directed to close the case file.
