Two students at South Iredell High School in Statesville, North Carolina, came up with the following senior prank: they placed alarm clocks in unused lockers and set them to go off at various points throughout the day. The unused lockers had been kept shut by zip ties. He said the subsequent investigation revealed the plans to pull the prank were spread via social media or email in the past few days, but no one alerted officials. When it was noticed that the zip tie was removed from the locker, Baker called for assistance and the faculty and staff helped evacuate the students to the football stadium. Selves said the evacuation involved approximately 1,500 students and another 200 or so faculty and staff members. While the students and faculty waited in the football stadium, law enforcement officers from Troutman, the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office and the N. C. Highway Patrol swarmed the area. Selves said a lot of resources were tied up for about two hours until a bomb-sniffing dog made a sweep through the school and word of the planned prank began to make its way to investigators. ” Farrell and Hall’s actions were certainly stupid—they tied up a lot of police resources for hours—and clearly some kind of punishment would be appropriate, like.
The Jackets’ season ended with a loss to Boston College in the opening game of the ACC tournament. The Eagles scored the winning basket with 10. 6 seconds remaining when their leading scorer — Olivier Hanlan, long a swatter of Yellow Jackets — shot over Robert Sampson after being isolated. The Jackets’ final shot was taken by Corey Heyward, who was Tech’s 11th-leading scorer on the season and the ninth-leading scorer available today. I’m not sure if that was the designed play — I’m not sure Tech has designed plays — but Heyward made a good move to the basket only to dribble his way into a contested layup. Mitchell was Tech’s second-leading scorer and leading rebounder this season. For reasons unknowable, he wasn’t on the floor when a 2-point basket would have won the game. (And we all know Tech’s best hope of generating points is to hurl the ball at the goal and hope one of its big men can follow it home. ) But Corey Heyward, who’d made eight baskets this season including two this day, was. Much has been made over how unlucky Tech has been to have gone 0-11 in ACC games decided by five or fewer points or in overtime. I’m sorry, but not deploying your best available offensive player and best rebounder at the end of a one-point game isn’t luck.
Written by Frank J. Barbiere , with art by Christopher Peterson , the creative team brings us a survival adventure series that explores the lives of people left behind on the last days of Earth. The story specifically follows Elena Marlowe, whose family was approved by the government to escape to a giant spaceship headed to another planet before a meteor hits Earth. With the meteor fast approaching, Elena tries desperately to find a way to fake her way onto the last ship or else be left behind to die with the rest of Earth’s rejected. When I first met Elena, I was immediately drawn to her character’s tough personality. He writes in a thorough way, balancing out all of the important information we need to know in a tasteful way. The alarm that I felt when I read reminded me of the movie Independence Day. Even though Broken World is based on people leaving Earth, instead of creatures invading, you still have this panicked ticking clock in the back of your head as you read. Even though there was mention of Elena’s family, I kind of mentally prepared myself to read a comic about one woman’s journey. Elena is a professor, and she shares a bond with her students.
