Due To Tradition, Boxer’s, Tyson Fury, Six Children Will Not Attend School Beyond The Age Of 11

Posted on

In the Traveller tradition, Tyson Fury’s children are allowed to leave school at the age of 11 if they like.

As a result of a meeting at the tender age of 14, Fury and his wife Paris had six children; Venezuela, 12, Prince John James, 9, Prince Tyson II, 4, Valencia, 3, and a preterm infant Athena. After Paris insisted on keeping the tradition going, Venezuela has already graduated from school.

“We finish school at primary age, which is the traditional traveller way,” she said. “We’ve just brought the tradition into the 21st century. Venezuela wanted to leave school and all her friends were leaving. Her tutor is going to keep her up to date with all of her tests. She will also be having piano lessons.”

It was made clear in their documentary in 2020 that Fury and Paris had divergent views on how best to educate their children. Dillian Whyte will challenge Tyson Fury for the WBA heavyweight championship in London’s O2 Arena on Saturday night. Paris continued, “I and Tyson have discussed the possibility of the children attending to school. We have never done this before, but Tyson wants the boys to attend to school. That is not something I support.”

“I was brought up as a Traveller and I want my kids to be brought up as Travellers. They will probably leave school at 11 and they’ll be educated at home from then. The boys will take a wife and make their family and the girls will take a husband and make their family. Until they take a husband or wife they won’t be leaving the home and I wouldn’t want them to.”

In response, Fury said: “You say it’s something we’ve never done but I’m a precedent setter, am I not? Now I’ve set these laws and precedents, you watch how many will follow. The parents of these kids, I call them dream killers. Just because something went wrong in their life you can’t pawn it off on your kids.”

Paris and her husband have not ruled out the possibility of having a seventh child, they have both been devastated by two miscarriages in the past. “Very sadly we lost two babies which was just devastating to both of us and my heart goes out to anyone who has suffered the same,” she said last year.

Teachers’ Humanity Mixed With Comedy And Benevolence: ‘Abbott Elementary’ Season 1 Finale

Posted on

It was with great sadness that the season finale of this year’s most popular new program, Abbott Elementary, aired this week, bringing an end to a really extraordinary accomplishment in television. It’s a program that took the “mockumentary” comedy format and turned it into something unique, building on many of the best aspects of previous great shows. To wit, the show’s co-creator Quinta Brunson demonstrated that some of the funniest comedy comes from exploring the human side of people we don’t frequently consider. It was possible for the program to mine the day-to-day problems of Philadelphia elementary school teachers attempting to do the right thing by the children they educate for many laughs and ridiculousness because of the approach she took to the topic. As a program that isn’t simply about “feeling nice” for the sake of “feeling good,” it also proved to be incredibly amusing in how it constructed complex characters that supported its keen sense of humor. Each great cast member had their opportunity to shine and seemed so genuine that it was difficult not to connect with the play as we learned more about each of them.

The season’s penultimate episode, “Zoo Balloon,” saw Brunson’s kind-hearted and idealistic Janine decide whether or not to continue teaching at the school. Burnout is all too common among today’s educators, as shown by the fact that many of her peers were abandoning the profession altogether. The sensitivity with which the novel deals with Janine’s plight serves the story’s sense of levity and draws us into the school’s scrappy personnel as they attempt to navigate a profession fraught with perilous uncertainty.

It’s as humorous as it is true that even if she finally chooses to remain, the laughter discovered on the way there amazing. Because we can relate to the characters’ humanity and the difficulties they endure, the jokes ring true and are often laughed at for how real they seem. the lack of resources for instructors is as much of a comedy as the hallway lights flickering and Janine trying to repair it herself just to mistakenly create an outage is.

As a result, we can see how the school’s unapproved field trip to the zoo simply exacerbated Janine’s anxiety over her future. As they try to control a group of youngsters, it serves her character while also introducing the characters to some hilarious situations. You can see there are actual stakes at play in these situations, which makes them all the more enjoyable as you watch each character try to find their own way. Even though the school’s antics have you rolling in your seats, you begin to feel sorry for the students as they try a succession of almost impossible undertakings. According to them, they don’t need to be merely instructors. In addition, they must function as social workers or even parental figures for the children who spend hours a day with them.” Young people are being shaped and supported by them, even if they are being paid very little.

In this last episode, Janine desperately searches for a youngster who has gone missing, and you experience the same level of fear that she does. When she finally locates him, she has a brief sense of relief before being sucked into a balloon and carried away into the sky. Being afraid of heights, she would rather be anywhere except here. A fantastic example of the show’s ability to strike a thrilling balance between comedy and emotion can be seen in this particular moment. As you laugh at Janine’s plight, it helps to highlight how much she loves about her kids, to the extent that she risked placing herself in this position to help them.

A precise balance is struck between these two components of the act and they compliment each other. The brilliant quips and witty writing became more enjoyable to us as we learned more about Janine’s difficulties as a teacher. However, credit must also be given to all the plots and buildup that preceded this last episode. It was difficult not to fall in love with each and every one of the teachers featured in the episode. Despite their flaws, everyone of them was doing their best, which made their occasional doubts and anxieties as realistic as they were amusing.

Every detail contributed to creating realistic depictions of teachers who are not only undervalued, but also depended upon with little regard for their humanity. Abbott Elementary defies this notion, offering not just chuckles but a better appreciation for the underappreciated labor of teachers. It doesn’t elevate them or make light of the challenges they face, as is all too frequently the case. Instead, it sees these individuals for who they really are, and finds comedy in the fact that they are simply trying to get by in a workplace that makes that impossible.

If the program continues to be as incisive as it has been thus far, there are certain to be many more seasons to come. It’s one of the most nuanced and enduringly charming presentations of recent memory, thanks to its ability to locate comedy in the lives of teachers today. In a laugh-a-minute encounter, it never loses its sense of concentration and humorous timing. Throughout its lively and hilarious first season, it is a well-rounded comedy that never fails to strike the right note.

Drama Teacher Who Inspired Game Of Thrones Actor To Take On Acting Career

Posted on

In a new Welsh TV drama starring a Game of Thrones actor who was inspired by his teacher, a jet black steed from The Crown will take center stage. Mark Lewis Jones, a Wrexham native who also played in Robin Hood starring Russell Crowe, claimed her intervention “changed my life.”

Mark is now filming Dal y Mellt (Catching the Lightning) at Bryn Ifan farm, near Clynnog, on the Lln Peninsula. The S4C drama has been compared as a Welsh version of “Lock, Stock” and “The Italian Job” — complete with a horse.

Mark paid respect to his former theatre Teacher, Gwawr Mason, who died in 2020. Her motivation sparked his desire to become a professional actor while he was a student at Ysgol Morgan Llwyd in Wrexham.

She invited him to appear in a school play called Culhwch and Olwen 40 years ago. It was to pave the way for a successful career in cinema, television, and theater, which included a stint with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

 Mark claimed that the moment she approached him was still vivid in his mind. “For some reason, I agreed,” he said. “I had no interest in acting prior to that and no one in my family had ever gone into the arts.

“That moment changed my life. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for all the help she gave to people like me and working class families around Rhos and Wrexham. She helped very many of us, not just me.

“She was a very special woman. She had a lot of influence over us as young people at the time.”

Dal y Mellt is based on Iwan “Iwcs” Roberts’ contemporary thriller book of the same name, published in Trawsfynydd. It will air on S4C later this year and is set in rural Meirionnydd, Cardiff, and London’s Soho.

Mark portrays Mici Ffin, a nasty guy who manages a garage and suffers from PTSD, in the series. A horse named Chief co-stars alongside him, and the narrative focuses mostly around him. Odysseus, a nine-year-old Friesian horse named after the hero of Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey, is his true name.

“The horse is like another character in the series,” said Mark. “He’s pretty spectacular and that’s important because the character’s important and a big part of the story.”

Millions of people will recognize the magnificent steed from the Netflix smash The Crown and classics like Mary Queen of Scots.

Dolbadarn Film Horses, which was headquartered in Llanberis for many years but has recently relocated to Abergele, provided him.

Welsh film projects, according to horse expert Dylan Jones, are a great contrast to the major studio films he’s worked on like Warhorse and Game of Thrones. Ifor Williams Trailers, located in Corwen, equipped Chief with a “gold grade” HBX horsebox to transport him between destinations.

Dylan said: “Dal y Mellt is going to be a fantastic series and I enjoyed working with them 100%. It’s been a lot of fun. Chief has a central role in the series and I’m pleased we’re using a HBX from Ifor Williams Trailers.”

Dyfan Roberts, a seasoned actor from Rhydymain who currently lives in Llanrug, is also in the cast. He portrays Gronw, an enraged widower who is the father of Chief’s owner Antonia.

He said: “Although it’s a crime thriller, there’s also a lot of humour. The characters are warm and very Welsh. It’s like a cross between the Guy Ritchie film, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and the Michael Caine classic, The Italian Job, with a Welsh twist.”

Young Anglesey actor Gwon Morris Jones, who plays Carbo, is also a part of the cast. He compares him to James Dean’s character, who is on the run from “evil guys.”

He had to execute his own stunts for the part and had some “great experiences.” He said, “I’ve been fighting, driving fast automobiles, and hanging upside down from a crane!”

Llyr Morus, whose credits include Keeping Faith and Pobol y Cwm, was in charge of bringing Dal y Mellt to life. Even before the novel was released, he purchased the television rights.

He said: “Iwcs sent me a copy of the manuscript and I read it in one sitting of four hours. It was really gripping so I rang him straight away and told him it was fantastic.”

Vox Pictures, located in Cardiff, is producing the six-part series. This autumn, it will be shown on S4C.

The Time Liam Neeson Was A Teacher And Got Fired For Punching A Student Attacking Him With A Knife

Posted on

Previously, the Ballymena native was noted for his roles in a number of critically praised historical plays.

Neeson has been categorized as a serious actor rather than an out-and-out action star in films such as Michael Collins, Rob Roy, and Schindler’s List.

However, according to one narrative from Neeson’s youth, the Northern Irishman has always been a bit of a wildcard.

It takes place in the 1970s, before Neeson chose to pursue a career in acting, and while he was instead pursuing a job as a teacher.

Neeson allegedly began his career as a teacher in Newcastle.

He was sent to St Mary’s College in Fenham, which has since closed its doors.

Given the state of affairs, it’s probably just as well for Neeson.

In a recently uncovered interview, Liam Neeson discussed his “worst day” as a teacher, the day he was fired for hitting a student.

According to Neeson, he quickly chose to pursue a completely different professional route, joining the Belfast Lyric Players’ Theatre in 1976 and charting a new course.

According to reports, the incident occurred at an undisclosed school where Neeson was doing a placement and receiving his fair share of grief from the rowdy youngsters.

But one in particular stayed with him – the one he hit.

However, there were certain extenuating circumstances.

For starters, the boy was wielding a weapon.

“He was a big guy too, about 15 years of age,”” Neeson recalls.

“I had to punch him and then I was reprimanded for hitting the kid.”

He added: “There were always discipline problems, getting them to settle down before you can start to teach them.”

“This particular kid did not want to settle down, he wanted to disrupt the whole class.

“So I went over to him and asked him to leave the classroom and stand outside.

“The next thing he pulled a knife on me.

“My reaction was to punch him, which I shouldn’t have done but I felt threatened.”

Neeson has never hidden his respect for educators.

It’s also worth mentioning that his two sisters have been teachers for many years.

Mary Whitehouse’s Pursuit To Stop Alice Cooper’s Song “School’s Out” From Airing On British Media

Posted on

During the twentieth century, a moral activist and former teacher named Mary Whitehouse waged a battle against the BBC. According to Whitehouse and her group, the National Viewers’ and Listeners’ Association, the network continued to show content that damaged the public.

She expressed her displeasure with Doctor Who for teaching youngsters how to make bombs. She voiced her displeasure with comedy characters that used the phrase “bloody.” She expressed her dissatisfaction with BBC coverage of the liberation of concentration camps (“It was destined to shock and offend,” she stated, describing the coverage as “extremely off-putting”).

The BBC, which is funded by the people, is required to listen to public concerns, and Whitehouse’s demands have been met on occasion. She sued for libel when one of her detractors dubbed her a fascist. She sued a homosexual publication for “blasphemous libel” after they published a poem about someone lusting after Jesus, and won again. 

She protested Alice Cooper’s song “School’s Out” in 1972. It’s a great song about kids celebrating the end of the school year, except for the lyrics, which indicate that the singer detonated bombs in the school, killing the teachers and staff. She attempted to have the BBC remove the song entirely, but while she was unsuccessful, she did persuade them to remove it off their high-profile countdown show Top of the Pops.

This, according to Alice Cooper, is the reason for the song’s enormous appeal. “School’s Out” became a pub and club song, charted at number one, and catapulted the band to fame. Cooper sent a bouquet of flowers and a thank you card to Mary Whitehouse.

Claiming “Superman” was His Uncle, Henry Cavill’s Nephew was Accused of Lying by His Teachers so Henry Decided to Visit the School”

Posted on

Just mentioning the superhero ‘Superman’ conjures up images of Henry Cavill, right? The story of Henry and his nephew Thomas has recently gotten a lot of attention on Twitter.

This is because Thomas, who is seven years old, was accused of lying when he claimed that his uncle was Superman.

It all started when Thomas wore a Superman shirt to school one day, and kids were asked to recount anecdotes about their families at the time.

Thomas’ teacher was perplexed as to why he was wearing the shirt.

“Because my uncle is Superman,” Thomas said confidently again and over. Thomas was summoned to the office and warned against ‘living in fantasy.’ Superman, according to the teacher, couldn’t be his uncle.

The teacher had urged Thomas’ mother to speak with her son about the situation when it was time to go home.

“Now your youngster has deceived everyone by claiming that his uncle is Superman,” the teacher stated. “That’s the truth,” Thomas’ mother said.

Thomas’ mother then begged Henry to go to his school and ‘rescue’ her son because the people at the school still doubted him. At the time, it was also difficult for the mother to communicate with him.

Then perhaps now everyone will believe!

According to Thomas’ mother, she requested Henry to pick up her son from school so that he would not be reprimanded and accused of lying.

Henry told his experience during a live interview with Kelly and Ryan on LIVE!

Hollywood Icon Cate Blanchett Dresses Up As Daughter’s Teacher During Lockdown

Posted on

As reported by the BBC, hollywood Icon Cate Blanchett homeschooled her daughter whilst dressed up as her favorite teacher.

It wasn’t an offer but a serious demand. “She wouldn’t allow me at all to teach maths or do phonics, unless I dressed up as her teacher and put on her teacher’s voice,” the 52-year old said. “I had an array of stuffed animals who also had to be taught. I wasn’t an offer I made. It was a request she made.”

An appeal to hear a little bit of her in teacher mode is quickly rebuffed. “Mrs Venables Kyrke? No. I was so traumatic for me I’ve actually put my Mrs Venables Kyrke to bed. She was her teacher then. She’s a saint.”

Blanchett shares her greatest take from homeschooling her four children during Lockdown. “One thing that really came home to me was just how incredible teachers are. That is an inherently dramatic situation where you have to stand up in front of a class of 30 often disinterested pupils and try and get the engaged in medieval history.”

Five Best Teachers “Sensei” in Anime

Five Best Teachers “Sensei” in Anime

Stepping away from the realities of everyday teaching, we enter into the world of anime, where we binge watch our favorite heroes and foes. What is common in most of these tales is the presence of teachers “sensei”. These characters play a special role of being a guidance to those who attend their classrooms or seek to learn from beyond the school walls. Below we’ve listed some of the best teachers “sensei” from different anime.

1. Eikichi Onizuka

Eikichi Onizuka (鬼塚 英吉 Onizuka Eikichi)  is the main protagonist of the Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO) series. Together with his best friend, Ryuji Danma, they were once known as the Oni-Baku: Shonan’s strongest fighting duo. He decided to become a teacher after helping a troubled JK for good.

In the original manga and anime, Onizuka is a 22-year-old bachelor and teacher at Holy Forest Academy. There, he is the homeroom teacher of the troublesome Class 3-4. He teaches social studies, but is renowned throughout the school for teaching life lessons to his students.

2. Shizuka Hiratsuka

Shizuka Hiratsuka (平塚 静 Hiratsuka Shizuka) is Hachiman Hikigaya’s Modern Japanese and homeroom teacher. She is also a guidance counselor and the adviser for the Service Club.

Shizuka is an incredibly kind, friendly, and responsible teacher who is open-minded and believes in the future of her students; despite this, however, she’s also very short-tempered, and age-sensitive. She can also be violent towards Hachiman when particularly annoyed by his apathetic and cynical attitude.

As pointed out by Yukino Yukinoshita, Shizuka wishes and works hard for the welfare of all her students. She cares about all the students which is perhaps best demonstrated when she becomes concerned about her student Saki Kawasaki regarding her late-night job.

3. Korosensei

Korosensei (殺せんせー) was the homeroom teacher of Class 3-E of Kunugigaoka Junior High School, and the secondary protagonist and antihero of Assassination Classroom. He claimed to be responsible for creating the permanent crescent moon and added that he planned to destroy the earth after teaching Class 3-E for a year.

Korosensei’s attributes as a teacher is that he was able to connect to each student individually, being an objective, empathic, and observant person who will do almost anything to help his students. This was why all the students respect him even though he would eventually blow up the Earth in a year. Taking care of each student’s needs, Korosensei would sometimes be piqued by a student’s current problems or interests and would try his best to guide the student along or solve it for them.

4. Sawako Yamanaka

Sawako Yamanaka (山中やまなか さわ子さわこ) is the music teacher of the Sakuragaoka High School and one of its alumni. During her high school career, she was a member of the Light Music Club and founded the rock band Death Devil with her friends Norimi Kawaguchi, Della, and Jane, where she was a guitarist also the main vocalist of the band.

She eventually becomes the adviser of the two new generations of the Light Music Club under the leadership of Ritsu Tainaka and Azusa Nakano, respectively. Additionally, she worked as the homeroom teacher of Class 3-2 during the senior year of the original four members of HTT.

5. Noboru Taki

He is the son of Tooru Taki (滝 昇 Taki Noboru), the widowed husband of Chihiro Taki, and a new general music teacher at Kitauji High School at which he substitutes for Rikako-sensei (in the light novels), and is the permanent instructor (in the animated series.) Taki serves as the Kitauji High School Concert Band’s director during after-school hours and is in charge of classes 2-5 (second years, class 5).

In school, Taki is usually polite and soft-spoken, and overall very friendly. He is rarely angry or upset unless under heavy stress. However, the students quickly find that under his gentle semblance is a highly demanding and often bluntly critical teacher with a methodical personality. Many upperclassmen who remained from the schism were accustomed to the passive mindset of the band from previous years and initially disliked Taki’s methods. Despite this, Taki slowly earns his students’ respect as everyone realizes that he is serious about going to the nationals.
