Simone Biles

Simone Biles is arguably one of the greatest athletes in the world, and inarguably the world's best female gymnast. Her dominance in the world of gymnastics is all the more impressive due to her age. At 24, she's hardly "old," but she is years beyond the average Olympic gymnast and years past when most elite gymnasts are considered in their prime.

That hasn't stopped her from being the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time), of course. But her years of experience are also benefitting younger gymnasts, as Biles has embraced a supportive mentor role for her potential teammates.

A short clip of Biles putting a silver bow in 15-year-old Zoe Miller's hair has people praising Biles for setting an example of character and leadership.


Biles is loving being a role model to the younger gymnasts on the team. "It's meant the world, especially having the younger ones to kind of guide through the way," Biles told NBC. "I've been here for so long, so to be a mentor for them has meant everything to me, and to share these accomplishments and these goals."

And people are loving Biles for it.

"Simone taking care of the baby goat," wrote one commenter. "She knows she didn't receive the same treatment, but she's the game changer for the next Gen. That's Simone Biles greatness, another perfect 10 in life's lessons."

"She's the GOAT and yet she takes the time to do this," wrote another. "That's what sets her apart. Other athletes of her caliber sit off to the side in their own little world with headphones on and that's a valid choice BUT I love seeing this humanity and humility with a teammate."

"Every young girl should be watching this young lady," wrote a third. "She should be leading the newscast."

Like Biles, Zoe Miller, the young gymnast in the video, has a guaranteed spot on the U.S. Olympic team after last week's trials.

Biles, however, has not lost in competition since 2013. She is the most decorated gymnast in the history of the sport, making her literally the greatest of all time. She's nailing moves that other gymnasts won't (or can't) even attempt. When we look at Simone Biles, we're looking at a true phenomenon. What a gift that she's also a phenomenal teammate.

It takes a special type of person to become a nurse. The job requires a combination of energy, empathy, clear mind, oftentimes a strong stomach, and a cheerful attitude. And while people typically think of nursing in a clinical setting, some nurses are driven to work with the people that feel forgotten by society.

The Emperor of the Seas.

Imagine retiring early and spending the rest of your life on a cruise ship visiting exotic locations, meeting interesting people and eating delectable food. It sounds fantastic, but surely it’s a billionaire’s fantasy, right?

Not according to Angelyn Burk, 53, and her husband Richard. They’re living their best life hopping from ship to ship for around $44 a night each. The Burks have called cruise ships their home since May 2021 and have no plans to go back to their lives as landlubbers. Angelyn took her first cruise in 1992 and it changed her goals in life forever.

“Our original plan was to stay in different countries for a month at a time and eventually retire to cruise ships as we got older,” Angelyn told 7 News. But a few years back, Angelyn crunched the numbers and realized they could start much sooner than expected.

Prior to baby formula, breastfeeding was the norm, but that doesn't mean it always worked.

As if the past handful of years weren't challenging enough, the U.S. is currently dealing with a baby formula crisis.

Due to a perfect storm of supply chain issues, product recalls, labor shortages and inflation, manufacturers are struggling to keep up with formula demand and retailers are rationing supplies. As a result, families that rely on formula are scrambling to ensure that their babies get the food they need.

Naturally, people are weighing in on the crisis, with some throwing out simplistic advice like, "Why don't you just do what people did before baby formula was invented and just breastfeed?"

That might seem logical, unless you understand how breastfeeding works and know a bit about infant mortality throughout human history.

Dr. Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas teaches you how to pee.

A pelvic floor doctor from Boston, Massachusetts, has caused a stir by explaining that something we all thought was good for our health can cause real problems. In a video that has more than 5.8 million views on TikTok, Dr. Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas says we shouldn’t go pee “just in case.”

How could this be? The moment we all learned to control our bladders we were also taught to pee before going on a car trip, sitting down to watch a movie or playing sports.

The doctor posted the video as a response to TikTok user Sidneyraz, who made a video urging people to go to the bathroom whenever they get the chance. Sidneyraz is known for posting videos about things he didn’t learn until his 30s. "If you think to yourself, 'I don't have to go,' go." SidneyRaz says in the video. It sounds like common sense but evidently, he was totally wrong, just like the rest of humanity.
