From the start of 2010, YouTube uploads a video highlighting the best and sometimes the worst of the year. The first addition was a plain video of the top ten countdowns. However, over time they progress into a huge production including well-known YouTubers, visual effects, music, and celebrities.

The harder YouTube tried, the harder it was to guess what they were going to include. It leaves fans looking forward to seeing what each year was filled. However, YouTube Rewind 2018 has received the most criticism of all time. Making their way to the top of the most disliked video of YouTube with 84% thumbs down.

Here are some things YouTube could have done.

1. Less Fortnite

Although Fortnite blew up in 2018, there was just too much content about it. Not many people enjoy the overload of Fortnite references of the game and victory dances. It seem like a distraction from including other popular trends in 2018. Overall, it was a thumbs down decision from YouTube.

2. KSI vs Logan Paul

YouTube fail to include the biggest fight of 2018: KSI vs Logan Paul. Fans were intrigued with their beef online and when they were going to take it to arena many were hype to see the fight go down. 1 million users watch the coverage of their boxing and if that's not big enough to be included in the YouTube Rewind 2018 then no one wonder why they have the most dislikes.

3. More Music Variety

YouTube Rewind 2018 had popular music in the video but they forgot many artists who earn a spotlight. They had Cardi B and Kpop music but where was BTS? BTS has grown the most this year by earning many music awards and being the second most-streamed group on Spotify. Their fans were disappointed to not see their recognition in the video. Kpop was a big deal in 2018 but where was Travis Scott big hits or Ariana Grande music video blowing up on the internet? Forgetting a lot of top hit songs in 2018 was a big NO from the fans.

4. Cringy 

Giphy

There was too much dialogue in the video that it seem force and cringy. For instance when Will Smith mentions "Yaaaahh, I would want Fortnite and Marques Brownlee" that it sound awkward and someone told him to say it. Instead of giving shoutouts to what should be part of YouTube Rewind 2018 they could have thought of a more creative way to present this years trends.

5. Big YouTubers

There were popular YouTubers like James Charles, Liza Koshy, sWooZie, Dolan Twins, etc. However, they forgot most of the YouTubers were fans were looking forward to see. Shane Dawson's conspiracy theories and documentaries had a big contribution to YouTube community but never made any reference to him. Pewdiepie is one of Youtube most popular and fastest growing in 19 billion video views. Ricegum started becoming popular when creating roasting videos that fans grew to love and blew up on the internet now with over 10,000,000 subscribers. David Dobrik a big YouTube star from making vlogs with his funny friends grew a lot in the YouTube community and make great contributions that were not mention in YouTube Rewind 2018.

Now all fans can do is leave YouTube Rewind 2018 in 2018 and hope maybe next year they create better content.

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
