Mega City Mall Explosion

An explosion occurred today at The Mega City Mall, at 9:50am , there are two people confirmed dead.

Sergeant Fuglsang of the Mega City Police Department held a press conference this morning, shortly after the explosion went off. It is believed that the bomb went off in the food court near Dairy Queen. He confirmed that two people died today, one male from Sergeant Bluff and one female from Sioux City. They are withholding the names of these victims until the next of kin can be contacted. Sergeant Fuglsang also said that they do have video of the explosion from a security tape, however they are still reviewing it. While they still have no cause of the explosion known, they also have no reason to believe that it is a terrorist attack or that more explosions will occur.

Engels Perez, the mall security guard on duty at the time, said he was in the food court at the time of the explosion. He mentioned that he did not see anyone else in the food court at the same time. A handicapped man by the name of Dylan Ferguson was also near the explosion at the time, “I was by Scheels getting in some exercise, when I heard a loud boom and suddenly saw a large group of people running towards me, and I turned and had to join them to avoid possible injury.” He also mentioned that he saw the smoke coming out of the movie theater entrance, which is around the corner from the food court.

The mall has released an official statement, “Out hearts and thoughts go out to those who were injured today, and with their families. Mega City Mall will be closed while we assist law enforcement’s investigation of this tragic event.” It also was reported that they will begin repairs after the investigation, and hope to have some of the mall open by the end of the week.

The Mega City Police Department have announced that there will be a press conference this afternoon with more information that they have gathered.

Made up accolades

Mason Knaub, Omaha Nebraska, Omaha World Herald

Mason Knaub graduated from Omaha – Burke High School in 2016. He has since made a movie that has been accepted by Cedar Rapids Independent Film Festival, this film is titled “The HSSS”. The main story line of film is that there is a boy who got thrust into manhood before he was ready, and as a result ended up with a new kind of STD, it was named Hash Slinging Slasher Syndrome. In his movie he has Zac Ephron play the lead character. The soundtrack is also nominated to win a grammy, the feature song on the soundtrack was written by Mason and titled “Its hot when I piss”. This movie was in production for two months, 6 weeks to film and 2 weeks to edit, prior to his submission to the film festival.

Mason says that his story was inspired by real life experience he has had to overcome after receiving a plethora of STDs in his life. Some of those STDs he has contracted in his life are gonorrhea, chlamydia, crabs, syphilis, HIV, and AIDS. He has felt the lasting pain of these STDs in the form of having to take medicine the rest of his life to help control these illnesses and he no longer has feeling in his left hand.


I went out and bought a box of hot chocolate mix by swiss miss. When you open the box there are packets of the actual mix, one for every 6 ounces of water. It has a particular smell when the packet is opened. It smells like cocoa and milk, when made into hot chocolate it has a really strong taste of chocolate that is complemented by the taste and texture of the marsh mellows that are included in the packet as well.

When I tried giving away the hot chocolate mix, I just knocked on people’s doors asking if they wanted the hot chocolate. I only had to knock on a few doors before I got someone to accept the hot chocolate mix. Before they accepted they asked if I had done anything to it, and were taken back by me offering them a box of hot chocolate mix. They also asked if there were drugs laced into it. They did finally take it after some investigating of the box and the individual packets where they were looking for any sign of tampering. When doing so he held it up to the light and was feeling it for anything abnormal. He was tilting it up and down to check for any possible leaks or wholes where I could have slipped something in or out. He then asked why I was trying to give these away and I said it was for a class.

News Comment

In this article in The New York Times they discuss the most coveted award in the NFL and they throw out a name that no one is thinking about, Johnny Hekker a Punter for the Los Angeles Rams. The articles discusses why he is so effective at punting a football and who he is. They compare him to other top punters and why he is better.

This article does a really good job of opening up the article with a very intriguing lede. It does a good job bringing in the backstory to Johnny Hecker and how he ended up with the team. I like their use of quotes in the article, as they bring in people talking about how much his value really is.

Science Scavenger Hunt

Ever since farmers first strapped and hammered wooden crates onto their Model-Ts in the early 1900s trucks have evolved and have become huge, strong, and conquering beasts that fill the highways, garages, and driveways across America.

Three top selling automobiles on the best-sellers lists are pickups, and 3 of every 5 automobiles sold is a pickup. The image of a pickup truck is becoming synonymous with American toughness and  strength. Americans also like the feeling of a pickup, it sits higher and has a more comfortable steering position.

Throughout the decades the pickup has changed a lot. Back in 1925 people would have to take out the back half of their car and replace it with open topped wooden baskets. After World War 2 in 1946 trucks began to receive four wheel drive, which increased their payloads and made them able to traverse tough ground. Now today they have replaced the steel inside the pickups with aluminum, and in 2019 there are plans to replace the aluminum with composite.
