An American motorcycle stuntman twice broke the world record for the longest distance jumped on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle Tuesday, sailing through the air near Australia's Sydney Harbour to shatter the previous 10-year-old record.

Seth Enslow flew to a new record distance of 183.7 feet (56 meters) on his Harley-Davidson XR1200 shortly after a 175 foot (53.34 meters) jump. Bubba Blackwell set the previous record with a 157 foot (47.85 meters) jump in Las Vegas in 1999.

"This is awesome! I'm stoked!" Enslow said after entering the record books.

Enslow appeared to be in pain after the jump, but members of his stunt team said he was fine.

"We've worked hard at creating history and we're all glad he landed it safely," Harley-Davidson spokesman Adrian O'Donoughue said.

Enslow's jump is not a Guinness World Record as Guinness has no category for specific motorcycles, but it still stands as a world record. Evel Knievel set the record in 1975 and held it for 24 years before Blackwell's jump.

AUGUSTA, GA, USA -- Dr Walter Watson, known to many as “Papa Doc”, has delivered 18,000 babies in his 100 years of life - celebrated last month -and still comes into the clinic regularly to see his patients - setting the world record for the Oldest Practicing Doctor.

Dr Walter Watson, the world's Oldest Practicing Doctor has delivered over 18,000 babies over the years and although he has retired from that particular role, he still makes an effort to see around 5 patients every day, including new ones. There are many Augusta-area families that have several generations of babies delivered by the doctor.

University Hospital in Augusta honoured their oldest and most valued obstetrician and gynaecologist, whose name is already brandished on the entrance to the health facility’s women’s centre.




People came to the hospital to honor Watson and his wife Audrey and say happy birthday. They wore stickers that declared them a "Watson Baby" or the mother of a "Watson Baby," often both.

However, Watson says he doesn't feel a day over 99.
"People think it is hard today," Watson said. "It doesn't compare with '31."

In an interview with CNN, Watson says that he served in the army before becoming a qualified doctor in May 1947.

The doc’s entry into the trade was far from easy. Watson spent 7 years working on a farm in Edgefield doing hard labour for as little as 50 cents a day in order to afford medical school.

The world's Oldest Practicing Doctor reportedly enrolled at the Medical College of Georgia in 1939, and did his residency at University Hospital, which he never left.

According to Watson himself, he stopped delivering babies and conducting surgery around 1996, however still comes into the clinic regularly to see his patients.

His colleagues praise him for his “old-school” approach towards healthcare, which is all about actually taking care of the patients. The doc himself places a particular emphasis on family values.

Many babies in the town were delivered by him, including his partner at the hospital, Dr Michael McDonough. His wife Audrey remarked that her husband is recognised everywhere.

Largest gay wedding set world record - Washington

On March 20 up to 400 same-sex couples will gather in Washington DC to get married as part of the Our Time Has Come event to become the current Guinness World Record.

Washington, United States - GLBT Wedding Services is hosting the event in Washington on March 20 to celebrate legal marriage.

Partners who are tying the knot will take part in a large group ceremony, individual private ceremonies and a gala-style reception at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium.
The event, though huge, is being designed so that each couple can feel special.
"The GLBT community has always found strength in numbers when it comes to advocating for equality," said Mike Wilkinson, Director of Wedding
Services for Event Emissary is one of the planners. He added, "Now we can finally stand together to affirm our love and have it recognized legally by the District of Columbia."
One of the couples, Drew Parker and Dalin Holyoak, who plan to be at the event have already wed. They couldn't wait for DC to legalize marriage but are glad that now the city they reside in recognizes their union.

"We signed up to be part of the mass ceremony as soon as we could. We celebrated our personal vows nearly two years ago, but we know the importance of this day to our status as fully equal citizens of the District of Columbia," Parker said. "We are so thankful for the people that sacrificed to make this day a reality, and can only hope that one day the entire nation will follow."
Standing Proud Together will be the centerpiece of the day long event. It will be a non-denominational, contemporary service and will be led in a manner that will solidify the unions of long-term partners as well as commemorate the marriages of those who are more recently engaged.
DC is expected to legalize same-sex marriage next week. Once that happens couples can apply for their marriage licenses.
In Washington D.C. there is a three-day waiting period for marriage licenses but high volume could make that wait longer.
Wilkinson said that the event will only take place if DC does legalize same-sex marriages.
"We're not going to do anything if it's not official. We've waited too long for that."
