The naughtiest and best-behaved children’s names has been released, and it’s bad news for Jacks…

Choosing your child’s name,  I can only imagine, causes significant amounts of stress, what with everyone telling you that ‘oh no, Ryan used to pull my hair in school’ and ‘Laura used to pee her pants all the time’. 

A brand new study shows that Brits make assumptions about kids based solely on their name.

The study has released the list of top naughtiest names with all teachers, parents and children surveyed revealing Jacks are the most likely to misbehave. Teachers even said they expect Jacks to be mean to their class mates.

For girl’s names, teachers and parents most associate those called Mia with mischief but children expect Emilys to be the naughtiest. 

It’s even worse when you find out bad behaviour is linked to intellect, with Jack and Mia also being considered the least intelligent. 

A whopping 96% of teachers, children and parents don’t associate the name Mia with being clever. Awkward.

The study, commissioned by My Nametags, also found that Arthur takes the top spot for best behaved boys, and is regularly associated with being quiet and shy like Noahs.

The study also found that Graces tend to be the shyest in class, with teachers, parents and children all agreeing Grace tends to be introverted. 

Charlie and Olivias tend to be assumed to be the most confident kids, while George is usually the most intelligent and regularly associated with kindness.  

While Isabella tops the list for being smart amongst teachers, children tend to think Isabellas are spoilt. 

Managing director at My Nametags, Lars B. Andersen, said: “We know that there are strong stereotypes attached to names and that someone’s first name can really paint a picture of what they are like.

“It was interesting to discover that these stereotypes are formed from a young age, with children and adults quick to make judgements about children based on their first name alone.

“These beliefs can make the difficult task of naming a child even more challenging, but we hope that our research will help give expectant parents an insight into society’s opinions of the most popular boys and girls names in the UK right now.”

Wayne Rooney was photographed asleep in a hotel bedroom this weekend, with the images quickly going viral.

The photos show a fully clothed Rooney passed out in a chair after a night out in Manchester, after he went to the hotel with three women.

And today it’s been reported that the former Manchester United captain was asked for £10,000 to keep the photos hidden from his wife Coleen.

According to reports, the police launched a blackmail probe over a message sent to Rooney on Instagram that included a photo from the hotel and the comment: “Morning Wayne 10 grand please mate or Coleen sees this.”

However, according to officers they have now dropped the investigation after concluding that no offence had been committed.

A Cheshire Police spokesman said: “On Monday July 26th Cheshire Constabulary received reports of a possible blackmail relating to a number of images circulating online.

“Officers have spoken to the person involved and are satisfied that no offences have taken place.

“The person involved has also stated that they do not wish to take the matter any further.”

It’s not been suggested that the women from the photos, Tayler Ryan, Elise Melvin and Brooke Morgan, all aged 21, were knowingly involved in any criminal activity.

Rooney met the women at the newly reopened China White nightclub on Saturday night before heading back to their hotel.

As the Derby County manager appeared to fall asleep, several photos were taken, with one featuring a woman bending over beside him in her underwear with the caption ‘Mooney Rooney’, while another was captioned ‘Sleepy Wayne’.

As the photos went viral on social media, Rooney’s legal team contacted Greater Manchester Police, before the case was passed to Cheshire Police.

A hairdresser has said we’re all making the same mistake when washing our hair

Everything we’ve been taught is a lie…

Published

While most of us are confident that washing our hair is a mastered skill, a hairdresser has claimed that the majority of people have been doing it wrong for years.

Can we not do anything right?

The hairdresser – known only as Felicity – unintentionally created a social media firestorm when she took to Twitter to share her professional advice on how to properly use shampoo. 

Apparently, it isn’t just the typical ‘shampoo, rinse, conditioner, rinse’ method that so many of us have adopted over the years.

Felicity said it had come to her attention that not everyone knows that when showering, shampoo needs to be applied and rinsed twice rather than once. 

She wrote: “The first time will cleanse the hair of all the oils and product build-up so that when you do it for the second time the shampoo can actually do what it’s intended to do.

“Also, only apply shampoo to the scalp and when you rinse it will run through the middle and the ends. Then only apply conditioner to the middle and ends of your hair, and use your fingers or a wide tooth comb to detangle in the shower while conditioner is on.

“And lastly remember to only wash your hair 2-3 times a week because too much washing can cause more build-up and damage to the hair.”

Of course, Twitter users couldn’t believe what they were hearing and, upon trying the method for themselves, were incredibly grateful for Felicity and her wisdom. One person wrote: “My hair honestly feels better now! I can’t believe what a difference that made – or that I’m 26 and just finally learned the right way to wash my hair from a Tweet.”

Another commented: “So I saw this yesterday and decided to try your 2x shampoo advice when I washed my hair tonight… Omg THANK YOU!”

Who else is trying out the method tonight?

More than 30,000 sign petition calling for people who walk dogs during a heatwave to be fined

So many dogs are unknowingly suffering in the heatwave

A petition calling for fines for all those who walk their dogs during heatwaves has surpassed 30,000 signatures. 

The petition was launched by twenty-five year old Paige Spearman, who wants owners to refrain from walking their pets in temperatures above 20 degrees celsius.

In her Change.org description, she explained: “Far too many family fur babies die every year from heat stroke due to negligence, and ignorance. A dogs average body temperature is 38/39° so anything over 40/41° can become fatal if not recognised quickly.

“I believe fines should be enforceable if ANYONE is seen walking a dog in 20° heat and over by the police. As well as people speaking up and calling the police if they see this happening but with supporting evidence.”

She went on to explain that, because tarmac takes a couple of hours to cool down after being in direct sunlight, the only appropriate time to walk a dog on a hot day is in the early evening – and even then, water should always be on hand.

At the time of writing, Paige’s petition has reached 30,491 signatures – it needs 100,000 for the topic to be debated in parliament.

The petition comes as the country continues to be gripped by a heatwave, with has seen temperature highs of 31 degrees celsius; while this hot weather may be a treat for most of us, for our dogs, it can be deadly.

Dogs are unable to regulate their body temperatures as well as we do; panting is the only way a dog can cool down and, sadly, it isn’t enough to stop them from overheating.

Signs of heatstroke in dogs include heavy panting and excessive drooling. They may appear lethargic, drowsy or uncoordinated, or collapse and vomit in extreme circumstances.

The RSPCA advises people to dial 999 immediately if an animal starts displaying these symptoms.
