Every human has the freedom of expression. However, the big question is where we draw the line between constructive criticism and bashing people on social media.

Recently, Meagan Howard, a teacher, became the subject of an online debate based on her clothing preference. Netizens had mixed opinions regarding her outfit as some people criticized her for dressing “unprofessional,” while others claimed that they “couldn’t care less.”

The teacher, who regularly posts her daily activities on TikTok, including her classroom experience and daily fashion outfits, has over 95,000 followers on TikTok. However, a video of her rocking a pink $12 Walmart dress has generated controversy among TikTok users.

Some described the dress as “too short” for work, while others said she would lose her student’s respect in class due to her dressing style.

TikTok Users comment on Meagan’s dressing

A user commented, “Girl. Teacher to teacher, the length of your dress is very inappropriate.” Meghan didn’t hesitate to respond, noting that if she claimed to understand her pain truly, she wouldn’t troll her. “If you are a teacher, you know what we go through every day. And the last thing we need is someone judging us on the internet for what we wear or anything else we do.”

Interestingly, some parents, students, and fellow teachers supported Meagan by revealing that her appearance and dress don’t matter as long as her teaching methods are standard and her students can fully comprehend the subject she teaches.

“Student to teachers, trust me, we legit don’t care about what our teachers wear,” a student noted. “More so the quality of the work they give us.” While a teacher offered her support by revealing how her outfit does not affect the quality of service she renders in any way: “The length of the dress is perfect! It doesn’t matter what we wear, it doesn’t change how we teach!”

Also, a TikTok user who has had a parent-teacher relationship with Meagan, testified about her work ethic and impact on her kid’s life. “Parent to child that was a student in her class here, I could honestly care less about the length of her dress. She was an amazing teacher.”

Paul McCartney Revealed That He Always Tried To Beat His Public Image

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Celebrities have always struggled with their perceived public image, which is always on display to their fans and critics. This seems to be the case with Paul McCartney, a member of The Beatles who recently revealed how hard it was to live with his normal self against the stereotype he had already been labeled with.

Like all other band members, Paul also earned a nickname — in his case “the Cute Beatle” — from fans, which he usually disliked.

Paul McCartney comments on his role in ‘A Hard Day’s Night’

The songwriter claimed that the only time he did not resent his moniker was when he played himself in the 1964 movie, A Hard Day’s Night.

“No, I didn’t mind it. No, no; I still don’t, I was in a film. I don’t care what they picture me as,” he told Rolling Stone. “So far as I’m concerned, I’m just doing a job in a film. If the film calls for me to be a cheerful chap, well, great; I’ll be a cheerful chap.”

Paul McCartney speaks about his internal struggles

Paul expressed his displeasure at the moniker that seemed to reduce his skills and talents as a musician. “They had to just say, ‘He’s the cute one; he’s the quiet one [George Harrison]; he’s the witty one [John Lennon]; and he’s the drummer [Ringo Starr],” he said in an interview on The Howard Stern Show. “I just can’t help being cute, Howard.”

For Paul, his desire was to be popular for his music, not his looks. “I hated that,” Stern replied. “That’s what happens — just, ‘He’s the cute one.’ I’d go, ‘No, I’m not! Don’t call me that. I hate that!’ But once it’s said, it kind of sticks.”

He explain how he tried to be better than his bandmates

The 80-year-old living legend revealed that to overcome the typecast that came with his looks, he had to strive daily to put in more effort than other members of The Beatles.

“It does seem to have fallen in my role to be kind of a bit more that than others. I was always known in the Beatle thing as being the one who would kind of sit the press down and say, ‘Hello, how are you? Do you want a drink?’ and make them comfortable,” he revealed in his 1974 interview with Rolling Stone. “I guess that’s me. My family loop was like that. So I kind of used to do that, plus a little more polished than I might normally have done, but you’re aware you’re talking to the press … You want a good article, don’t you, so you don’t want to go sluggin’ the guys of?”

Meet Yusuf Shah, An 11-Year-Old Boy Who Has An IQ Higher Than Einstein And Hawking

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Yusuf Shah, an 11-year-old British boy, has broken a world record set by Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking by scoring 162 on a Mensa intelligence test when it was purported the known geniuses had an IQ of 160. Shah is officially certified to be part of the top 2% of most intelligent people in the world.

Shah told Yorkshire Evening Post that his friends calling him smart encouraged him to take the exam. “Everyone at school thinks I am very smart,” he claimed, “and I have always wanted to know if I was in the top 2% of the people who take the test.”

Shah’s intelligence was always known to his parents since he was young, as he was ahead of his peers. Irfan Shah, his father, said, “Even in the nursery, we just noticed that he was doing the alphabet and things quicker than other children, but you just thought some kids may pick up the ABCs a bit quicker.”

They discovered their son was an arithmetic wizard from an early age as he was excellent at squaring numbers. “He just has this natural flair for math, and I guess that’s when we sort of realized,” Irfan revealed. “Even his school teachers, every time we get school reports, they’re amazing, they say, ‘There’s nothing for us to teach.’”

This is not the first time the Moortown resident has been recognized for his cognitive ability. When Shah was 7, he discovered a mathematical phenomenon that led the family to contact a Cambridge Math Professor, who explained the reasoning. The principle is now known in the house of the Shahs as “Yusuf’s Square Rule.”

His genius mind encouraged teachers to invite him to study Mathematics with higher classes. However, for Shah’s social development, these requests have been turned down by his parents on his behalf. While some other students would rather pursue other professional fields, Shah’s Maths passion has been fueled, and he chose to make it his career choice at a young age. The lad intends to study the subject at the University of Oxford or Cambridge.

Yusuf Shah Celebrates His Victory With His Family

His father revealed Shah didn’t undergo rigorous training for the test. “It is a difficult test to prepare for,” Irfan claimed. “We just did what we were already doing – nothing specific for the IQ test.”

After his result was announced, the family celebrated their son’s achievement with a meal at Nando’s. Shah’s mother, Sana, was ecstatic about his victory. “I was so proud. He is the first person to take the MENSA test in the family,” she explained. “I was a little concerned too – he has always gone into a hall full of kids to take tests. We thought he might be intimidated by the adults. But he did brilliantly.”

Brooke Shields Turns Up The Heat In Thanksgiving Swimsuit Video

Gather round the table, share stories, watch the big game, eat steaming hot potatoes and – take an icy dip in the pool. Everyone has their holiday season traditions and Brooke Shields was no different this Thanksgiving when she donned a red swimsuit and took a cool plunge.

Shields shared a video of what is apparently a yearly routine for her, to freeze away remaining steam for the holidays by submerging herself in icy water. All the while, Shields, 57, still managed to turn up the heat thanks to her sleek look in a bright red swimsuit. Check out this interesting tradition Shields has here!

A post shared by Brooke Shields (@brookeshields)

Last week, Shields took to Instagram to share a video of herself wearing a strapless red bathing suit and performing a Thanksgiving routine. “The #thanksgiving tradition continues,” she captioned her post, and a freezing face emoji is a fitting prelude for what’s to come. In the video, Shields takes one step at a time into a small, rectangular pool just big enough to stand or sit in.

It is audibly and visually a tough journey, no matter how short it is. Even when she makes it to the bottom, the hard part’s yet to come; Shields then lowers herself down so she’s up to her shoulders in apparently chilling water. She holds that position for a moment before rising up and – understandably – backing out from the icy depths.

An example of progress

Even small, candid videos like this actually mark a lot of progress from Shields. When she was just 15, she was left feeling uncomfortable due to an interview with Barbara Walters. Shields recalled when Walters asked her invasive questions and compared themselves. The incident left the teenager feeling, “This isn’t right. I don’t understand what this is.” Fortunately, she would have help reconciling her thoughts on her own appearance even decades after from her very own daughters.

“Their body image is so much better,” Shields said of Rowan Francis, 19, and Grier Hammon, 16. Part of their strategy comes from their readiness to “love it and move it and tell you to look at it and all the movements and the clothing.” Shields did not have this same attitude during her teen years but the two, “in reverse, helped me have [better body image] because I would…I was the hiding one and you know, back out of rooms and just don’t show your curves and it was such a weird thing because my daughters would actually say to me, ‘Mom, you’ve got a body you should just embrace it.’”

Shields certainly embraced it – and an arctic chill – this Thanksgiving!

The Ratings Are In For The 2022 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

The last few years have been unique – one way to put it – for big, annual events. 2020 saw a completely scaled-back Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade without the walls of people lining the streets of New York because of the pandemic. 2021 saw normalcy start to creep back into this time-honored tradition and finally in 2022 we got to watch the Thanksgiving parade in all its glory, so how does that reflect in the ratings?

The first parade was in 1924 and NBC has been broadcasting it since 1953. A lot has changed over the decades, not just including the character balloons and talented lineup. Its popularity has endured even when the parade had to go under now and again, most recently for the pandemic and decades ago because of World War II. Fortunately, it is still flourishing against the odds. Check out the numbers here.

These are the ratings for the 2022 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

The Nielsen ratings for the 2022 Thanksgiving parade show the event reached a 7.2 among viewers in the 18-to-49 demographic. 27.7 million viewers watched it either in realtime, over streaming, or during the encore broadcast. Overall coverage brought in 22.3 million viewers. These along with an additional rating of 5.5 rating reported by TV Insider has made the 2022 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade NBC’s highest-rated and most-watched entertainment program of the year, especially within that demographic!

Ahead of the parade, it was expected three million people would flock to the streets of New York to watch the procession in person. Marching bands, balloons, and floats began their journey at the Upper West Side and made their way to Macy’s flagship store at Herald Square.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has a big assortment of traditions and ways of freshening things up. Today anchors have hosted and provided commentary for the parade over the decades. That typically includes Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, and Al Roker in the lineup. Together, they also oversee the ribbon-cutting ceremony. However, this year, Dylan Dreyer filled in for Roker, who was out for medical reasons related to blood clots.

As American Entertainment notes, this is the first time in decades Roker has missed reporting on the parade. In light of his health concerns, his wife and fellow journalist Deborah Roberts asked for prayers. Thankfully, he was discharged in time to spend the holiday with his family, for which he was thankful.

Did you tune in to watch the parade or head to the streets of New York to see it in person?

Sylvester Stallone Initially Expressed Concern About His New Reality Show

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Sylvester Stallone has thrown open the doors of his home to TV cameras so fans can see what life is like for him, his wife Jennifer Flavin, and their daughters Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet. The 76-year-old and his family is set to feature in a new Paramount+ reality show.

Sylvester revealed the brain behind the production of the show in a video posted on his brother Frank’s Instagram page. “It’s done by Bunim-Murray, who was the force behind the Kardashians,” he noted, “and it’s a very, very strong line-up.”

Sylvester Stallone said he is anxious about the show

Instagram

The actor claimed that he has some reservations about the reality show. His concerns were mostly about the invasion of his privacy. “I’d think, ‘Why do I need to do this crap, seriously?’” Stallone told ET Canada in an interview. “So you had to set parameters. No one’s coming into the bathroom and watching you brush your teeth.”

He overcame his worries by establishing boundaries because he wanted to do the show for his children. “99 percent of the show was for my daughters to explore their lives, to see it, chronicle it, and I’ll manifest myself here and there.”  

The actor gives his motivation for the show

The 76-year-old revealed that he was encouraged to run the show because he wanted to spend more time with his family. “I want to get real with my daughters,” he said during an interview with ET Canada. “I actually want to have footage of that.”

Instagram

Stallone also disclosed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that his greatest regret was not spending more time with his family due to his busy career. This almost cost him his family, as his wife filed for divorce, but the couple later reconciled.

“And what’s better? When you have to deal with each other all day long and it’s going to be on film. I’ll be there forever in one form or another with the family,” he explained. “That’s one of the reasons I wanted to do the reality show that I’ve been taking a lot of s**t for.”

Sylvester Stallone commends ‘The Osbournes’

Instagram

Stallone also made a reference to the MTV reality series The Osbournes which detailed the family life of Black Sabbath performer Ozzy Osbourne which he said made him interested in making his own reality show.

“I think the first one that really hit it right was Ozzy Osbourne,” he noted. “He just didn’t care. ‘My dog craps on the floor, I’m not some superstar’.”
