World's dirtiest man

Amou Haji, an 80-year-old Iranian, is being called the world's dirtiest man. In an article published Jan. 6, he told the Tehran Times that he hasn't bathed in 60 years.

World's biggest arms

The world's largest biceps belong to Mostafa Ismail (Egypt) and were measured for left arm flexed at 64.77 cm (25.5 in) and non-flexed 62.23 cm (24.5 in) and for right arm flexed at 63.5 cm (25 in) and non-flexed 60.96 cm (24 in).

Overclocker hits 8.19GHz with Intel Celeron CPU, sets new world record

intel Celeron CPU, sets new world record,computer world record 2010
Intel's Celeron line of CPUs aren't known for their feature set of performance credentials, but the budget parts are a favourite among overclocking enthusiasts who're looking to push their processors to the limit.

Don't be surprised, then, to find that an overclocker going by the name of TiN has set a new world record for CPU frequency by overclocking a 3.06GHz Intel Celeron D 347 right the way up to a blistering 8,199.5MHz.

In an age of multi-threaded computing, CPU frequency is no longer the defining performance characteristic, but there's no denying TiN's remarkable feat.

So how did he do it? Well, in order to best cool the £25 CPU, he first heated it to over 200°C to remove the integrated heat spreader (IHS). With that out the way, he popped the still-working CPU into a heavily-modified DFI Lanparty UT P35-T2R motherboard and watched it hit 8,199.5MHz whilst cooled by liquid nitrogen.

TiN's score beats out the previous record holder by just 16.8MHz. Here's the validated CPU-Z screenshot:

Tendulkar, Dravid most 100-plus run partnership pair set world record stand

Tendulkar, Dravid most 100-plus run partnership pair set world record stand,cricket world records 2010,new world records

Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid today registered the world record of most 100-plus run partnership by any pair during the second day of the second and final Test against Bangladesh here today.

Tendulkar and Darvid have now 17 100-plus partnerships, one more than the Australian pair of Mathew Hayden and Ricky Ponting and West Indians Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes, who have 16 such stands.

The Indian duo's world record of most number of 100-plus partnership came after the drinks break in the post-lunch session when Tendulkar also reached his 55th Test fifty in his 164th match when he drove past extra cover for a four.

Tendulkar and Dravid's 100-run partnership for the third wicket came from 25.3 overs and included 10 boundaries.

Magnetic Tape Data Density Record set a new world record by IBM

Magnetic Tape,Data Density Record,technology world record, IBM

Fujifilm Recording Media U.S.A and IBM today announced that they were able to demonstrate a new particulate that can be used to create magnetic tape cartridges that are 44 times more dense than today's Generation 4 LTO Ultrium cartridges.

The magnetic media technology uses a new process of aligning barium-ferrite (BaFe) particles on the tape. It enables a density of 29.5 billion bits per square inch with magnetic tape media, allowing for the storage of 35TB of uncompressed data. BaFe is a crystalline substance that does not corrode or change chemically over time, making it ideal for long-term data storage.

Fujifilm said its process for laying down BaFe particles on tape, which it calls "Nanocubic technology," uses a new coating process and advanced dispersion techniques to achieve an ultrathin magnetic layer that produces higher resolution for recording digital data.

The Nanocubic technology creates BaFe particles that are about one-third of LTO tape's metal particle size and lays down the particles in a uniform, perpendicular manner, according to Fujifilm.

"We are hopeful about bringing this technology to market and believe it will change the face of tape storage," said Peter Faulhaber, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Fujifilm Recording. "We believe that tape has the potential to be the next-generation storage solution as it meets all the core needs of the market."

According to Norio Shibata, CEO of Fujifilm Recording, the BaFe particle offers superior storage with "lower noise and higher frequency characteristics than other metal particles."

Fujifilm first demonstrated the technology with IBM tape cartridges in 2006, achieving a density world record at that time as well.

Reducing a ferromagnetic particle to microscopic size is a challenge because the process can reduce the material's resistance to demagnification, Shibata said.

BaFe particles have a high resistance to demagnification, which makes their high-density recording performance superior.

Marathon World record holder to run New York Half Marathon in March

Marathon World record,Olympics World Records,Ethiopia's Haile Gebrselassie to run New York Half Marathon

Gebrselassie is the current marathon world record-holder and a two-time Olympic 10,000-meter champion

"I"m very excited about going back to New York," Gebrselassie said.

"I got such a warm welcome when I ran the Half-Marathon in 2007. I"m sure it will be a wonderful event again and I'm looking forward to it."

According to the AFP:"The 36-year-old long distance legend last competed in a US event in 2007, when he won the New York Half-Marathon in a race-record 59 minutes, 24 seconds. Gebrselassie will seek a 20,000-dollar top prize in the 100,000-dollar event."

Gebrselassie holds the world marathon record of 2:03:59 which he set at the 2008 Berlin Marathon. He is also almost undefeated at the half marathon distance having won 9 out of the 10 the ten half marathon's he's raced.

Felix Baumgartner to set a skydive world record

Felix Baumgartner to set a skydive world record,skydive world record 2010
A daredevil skydiver has announced plans to leap to earth from the edge of space - setting four world records in the process.

Felix Baumgartner will jump from a record 120,000 feet and will even set an altitude record for the highest manned balloon flight just getting there.

On his way down the Austrian will set a distance record for longest free-fall and is expected to become the first person to break the speed of sound with his own body.

It is thought that the fall - due to happen this spring/summer - will last more than five minutes.

Maybe Baumgartner should think of another record to break on the way down… like seeing how many crackers he can eat.

The records Felix Baumgartner will set

1. Altitude record for freefall
2. Distance record for longest freefall
3. Speed record for fasted freefall by breaking the speed of sound with the human body
4. Altitude record for the highest manned balloon flight

In 1960, United States Air Force Captain Joe Kittinger, made aerospace history by freefalling from 102,800 feet. This achievement contributed valuable data that set the groundwork for the United States’ first space program.

Kittinger has been advising Felix on operational safety and bringing his extensive experience to the programme. Over the last two years he has been preparing himself mentally and physically in order to attempt this new challenge, which has already begun to provide important learnings.

RP mango certified as world's biggest

Sergio Bodiongan, with wife Maria Socorro, holds the world's biggest mango,world records 2010,biggest world records

The Guinness Book of World Records has certified a 3.5-kilo mango from southern Philippines to be the world's biggest.

Radio dzBB reported early Monday that the mango, which surpassed the 2.4-kilo mango from Canada, was a product of Sergio at Maria Socorro Bodiongan of Iligan City.

It was submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records last September.

It was also the highlight of the Sundayag activity led by the Department of Agriculture (DA) Region 10 in Cagayan de Oro last year.

The DA in Region 10 also rejoiced over the recognition of the mango. Suzie Roa of DA Region 10 said it was a feat for local agriculture.

Roa said they have given the Bodiongan family cash incentives for the feat.
