Nyquist Design

I am completely lost with Nyquist. I am sure it's a plot of G(s), but when I put the plot in my calculator, it looks nothing like a traditional nyquist plot.

I have a pole at the origin, that is not in the rhp is it? I have a zero in the rhp. So, the number of encirclements is N=#p-#z= so that's -1? There are -1 ccw encirclements? Help!

I'm trying to design a lag compensator with kv=2, pm>=50, PM>0 for all w<=wc (where wc is the corner frequency).

Please help me to understand how to do the nyquist plot for G(s)=2((-s/.142)+1)/(s* ((s/.35)+1) ((s/.0362)+1) ))

I'm lost, please help.
