Hula hoop world record - Colchester

A hula hoop world record attempt is set to take place at Colchester's Castle Park

Organisers hope to have 2,500 people hooping simultaneously in one single venue to break the current record of 2,290 people, set in Taiwan in 2000.

The bid is the brainchild of local hula instructor and performer Amanda Morris, who also hopes to raise at least £100,000 for the Colchester SOS bus.

The record requires each person to hula continuously for two minutes.

The day-long event will involve a full build-up of training and practice before the record attempt takes place in the afternoon.

"I think it could be a world record in itself, for the biggest class ever, because I've got to teach 2,500 people how to hoop," the event organiser, Amanda Morris of HoopaHula, told BBC Essex.

"Once I've taught everybody they'll be a free practice session and for those who are struggling I'm going to do an intensive clinic with them."

She added: "We'll start in earnest in the afternoon and go on for upto five hours.

Large Hadron Collider Achieves Proton Collisions - Big Bang experiment Geneva

The title might not sound terribly exciting if you’re not a physicist, but this is the main reasons the Large Hadron Collider was built in the first place to collide elementary particles at extremely high levels of energy, which would help physicists test some predictions of high-energy physics, including the existence of the hypothesized Higgs boson.

Two pivotal achievements happened today: First, the LHC finally managed to sustain a 7 TeV particle beam. Secondly, the first proton collides were achieved at this level of energy, which is a world record.

With these record-shattering collision energies, the LHC experiments are propelled into a vast region to explore, and the hunt begins for dark matter, new forces, new dimensions and the Higgs boson. The fact that the experiments have published papers already on the basis of last year’s data bodes very well for this first physics run, said ATLAS Collaboration Spokesperson Fabiola Gianotti.
Now it’s up to the scientists at CERN to analyze the data, which will probably take some time; look out for some exciting news from CERN in the days to come.

World's longest dodgeball game set Guinness world record

Albany could soon lay claim to a new record: the world's longest dodgeball game.

The folks of Albany Dodgeball, which is made up largely of members of the Albany Society for Advancement of Philanthropy, are trying to set a new Guinness World Record -- but they need a little help.

Here's the deal...
                                                          World's longest dodgeball game
Albany Dodgeball captain and all-around mover n' shaker Jasen Von Guinness says his team will be playing against Hometown Dodgeball from Clifton Park. That team, led by Von Guinness' buddy Rob Immel, is made up largely of members from the newly former Saratoga Society for the Advancement of Philanthropy.

Two years ago, Immel helped set the current record for longest dodgeball game ever with a 24 hour game in Clifton Park.

This year they'll be playing for 31 hours, 11 minutes and 13 seconds. (It's a palindrome.)

Here's how it will work:

Two teams of 10 players each will play at The Washington Avenue Armory from Monday, April 5th at 10 am until just after 5 pm Tuesday.

Each team has to have six players at the start of every "rush" (that's what happens at the start of each game or reset) so that'll give the players some time for breaks and rest in between. All standard National Dodgeball League rules will be followed.
