Fortnite Shutdown and Event

Players were left devastated when Fortnite suddenly shut down on October 13, 2019.

Over 3 million people watched live as a Fortnite event took down the game’s servers. 12-year olds everywhere were left with nothing to do for almost 48 hours, and it did serious things to their mental health (which is kind of pathetic). Players logged into the game just to stare at a spinning black hole in the middle of their screen.

This turned into a meme on the internet, since millions of children were shocked about their favorite pastime being destroyed in a matter of minutes.

“I just don’t know what to do with myself” said Cooper David, a distraught 13-year-old.

This was a major event for pop culture since many people had an income based on the game. People stream themselves playing the game regularly on platforms such as Twitch and YouTube, so the shutdown of the game was kind of worrying to them.

Children had also spent loads of money (from their parents’ wallets) on the game, buying various things within the game. Therefore, the shutdown angered parents who had indirectly spent lots of money on the game. Although the shutdown only lasted for about 48 hours, people were having mental breakdowns everywhere.

Sushi and where to find it

A culinary masterpiece composed of sweet rice, seaweed and seafood of all kinds, sushi is becoming a more popular pleasantry among all. It is enjoyed by young and old and is found all over Davis County; Fuji Sushi in Centerville, Smith’s in Farmington,  Osaka Sushi in Layton and Monster Sushi in Farmington just to name a few.

According to Google, Fuji Sushi in Centerville is known as a “simple, small-strip venue serving an array of Japanese dishes plus creative sushi rolls and sashimi.” It is loved by many, especially Mr. Frey.

“Fuji Sushi not only has the greatest service, it has the greatest quality,” stated Frey.

Smith’s in Farmington is known for many things and does not get enough credit for the incredible sushi found within.

“It’s delicious! It’s very good and I like the Shaggy Dog kind,” stated Ireland Dannehold, Sophomore.

Osaka Sushi in Layton does not receive enough credit for the wondrous sushi treasures they hold.

“The April roll is by far the best one on the menu. I’ve been there dozens of times and without a doubt it’s the one I always go back to.” said Trevor Schwab, Senior.

Many especially enjoy the special of half-off Tuesday.

Another great place is Monster Sushi at Station Park in Farmington. It is hidden among many other restaurants but deserves a review of its own. It has a great variety of sushi and it is delicious. It tends to land on the more expensive side of things but the price is 100% worth it.

“The presentation is amazing and the flavor is phenomenal,” said Kainoa Sorensen, Sophomore.

Sushi is a great dish that many students and teachers here at Davis High greatly appreciate. It is delectable and will continue to be a favorite. Stop by one of these restaurants to get a taste of the abundance of sushi greatness Utah holds.

Brody Korth: Athlete or Chef?

Ever heard of a football player that makes a mean fettuccine Alfredo? Well you have now! Brody Korth is a senior at Davis High school, and despite the typical cliches about football players he loves to cook. Brody was reluctant to tell us his secret recipe, but he did mention that he refuses to use mushrooms in any part of his cooking.

Brody’s favorite, actually more like worst, memory from his childhood is when he was a little boy his parents took him to Chick-fil-a. He instantly got sick after eating their famous nuggets and hasn’t gone back since. He said his friends give him crap about it all the time.

One thing you may not know about Brody is that he attended Layton High School his sophomore year. When asked weather Layton or Davis was better Brody didn’t even hesitate to respond with Davis!

Brody gave us the insight to what its really like to be on the football team. His favorite thing is getting hyped in the showers with the boys before every game. Some things he’s going to miss about high school is football, specifically Friday night lights home games, all the dances and just being able to see see all his friends and hang out.

His plans for the future are to attend either Utah State or Utah Valley, striving to become a physical therapist.

“I get a lot of injuries, so I go to the physical therapist a lot, and I’ve seen how it works and it just interested me.”

Brody’s biggest role model is his Grandpa. He always shows up to his games and supports him in everything he does.

One of his Favorite artist is Post Malone. Stoney is his favorite album and Congratuation is his favorite song. You can catch Brody jamming out at the Post Malone concert this Novemember.

Brody Korth is a mysterious man we may never know the true inter workings of his brain. However, if you’re looking for a snack, he certainly can provide. #noflyzone

Isis Leader Killed in Raid on Compound

Top Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi killed in a lethal strike in Syria, all thanks to a special military dog.

The founder and leader of Isis was killed on October 26, 2019, after a years-long manhunt to find him. Thanks to a talented military dog, he was tracked down and killed soon after. Al-Baghdadi and 6 other Isis fighters were cornered in a compound where they were killed by US military operatives.

He died “whimpering, screaming and crying.” Donald Trump said on Sunday

The compound he was in was raided and he eventually detonated a suicide vest, killing himself and 2 of his children.

The dog, whose name is classified, injured the Isis leader and caused him to be cornered in a hole, where he detonated the vest.

The dog was only minorly injured in the raid but has since been making a good recovery.

“Our canine, I call it a dog, a beautiful dog – a talented dog – was injured and brought back,” Trump also commented.

The dog has since received much praise (and treats presumably) for his noble acts in finding the Isis leaders’ hideout. 2 detainees were also taken from the site, and the remains of al-Baghdadi have been confirmed by DNA tests.

Malachi The Magnificent

CHI THE ROCK CLIMBER. Edwards. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Malachi Edwards, also known as “frog boi chi”. Malachi loves to climb rocks. He has always had a big passion for climbing ever since he was little. When chi was little he remembers he always loved to climb to the top of very tall trees and thought he was at the top of the world, nothing to worry about. When chi was just 13 he competed in a regional tournament in UT, and then divisional against Colorado an even more in Wyoming.

Chi also loves to snowboard and skate, chi has both of these things down to a science. His stepbrother Eli Quackenbush is a professional longboarder and competes in downhill competitions around the state. So chi has all these things in his blood. When me and Chi skate, he will say he’s going to do a trick and then he will not stop until he gets it. Once he gets it he will either want to go or keep skating depending on his tiredness.

When first meeting chi, things were a little awkward. We both just stared at each other and making eye contact every once in a while. It was just awkward. Before leaving the house, I said bye to everyone and gave Chi a high five.

“Later bro it was nice meeting you lets hang out again”

Said Chi, and the rest is history.

Matilda Takes the Stage

Theater productions have been around for centuries. Plays are a perfect way for artist to get their ideas and concerns out there. Addressing controversial topics while creating something beautiful and fun. Davis High’s 2019 fall theater production is Matilda.

The play is about a little girl who discovers she has mind powers during her first year of school. She comes from a verbally abusive family and is taken under the wing of her teacher, Miss Honey. With those powers she uses them to defend yourself and over come her hard trials.

“I think the best part about being in the ensemble is being able to participate in the big numbers and just being able to work hard but still have fun,” said Hailey Taylor, a member of the Ensemble.

Davis High has an incredible theater program. Hailey’s favorite part about theater in general is being able to entertain people while telling a story. The morals of a play can impact the way the audience perceives it and how well they enjoy it or not. Matilda has an incredible message that applies to all age groups. Being able to overcome hard trials and defending yourself when your boundaries are being broken. As well as, finding friends to help you along the way.

Matilda takes the stage November 15th and runs the 16th, 18th, 19th, 21st, 22nd, and closes on the 23rd. Buy your tickets at the door or from one of our wonderful theater students. The world is yours, now go out there and conquer it!
