Tallest Cat in the World 2010 - Savannah

This is "Scarlett's Magic", a 17.1 inch tall F1 Savannah Cat and the current tallest cat in the World. The cat is measured from it's toes to shoulders. Scarlett's Magic lives with a loving family in Corona, California USA.

The Savannah is an amalgam domestic cat breed. It is a cross between the serval and a domestic cat.

Savannahs are considered one of the larger breeds of domesticated cats. The savannah's tall and slim build gives the appearance of greater size than their actual weight. Size is very dependent on generation and sex, with F1 hybrid male cats usually being the largest. F1 hybrid and F2 hybrids are usually the largest, due to the stronger genetic influence of the African Serval ancestor.

A female F1 Savannah Cat named "Scarlett's Magic," measuring 43.43 centimeters or 17.1 inches from shoulder to toe, is the tallest cat in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Male Savannahs tend to be larger than females. It is possible for early generation Savannahs to weigh up to 20lbs or more, with the higher weight usually attributed to the F2 or F3 neutered males, though this is not the norm. Later generation Savannahs are usually between 10 to 15lbs. Because of the random factors in Savannah hybrid genetics, there can be significant variation in size, even in one litter.

Savannah’s prices range from $5,000 to $50,000, but the record-breaking elegant herself is not for sale.

Most People Cutting Hair set Guinness World Record 2010 - Mitchell County Salon

Mitchell County Salon set new Guinness World Record for Most People Cutting Hair at the same time.

It was a haircut that will go down in history, as two Mitchell County salon owners recently clipped their way into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Listed prominently under “Most People Cutting Hair,” in the next publication will be the names Darcy Steele and Sheri Elliott, who were among the 552 licensed cosmetologists cutting hair at the same time to set the new world record on April 10.

“We had a blast; it was really exciting,” said Steele.

Steele, the owner of Darcy’s Country Cuts in St. Ansgar, and Elliott, owner of Sheri’s Hair Studio in Osage, were already planning to attend Peel’s Salon Services annual Spring Trade Show at the MidAmerican Center in Council Bluffs. With the registration packet they were also invited to participate in the distributor’s “World’s Largest Hands-On Workshop.”

After a day filled with the latest in industry education and exhibits, the two entered the auditorium at the MAC, which was lined with rows of folding chairs. Each stylist was given a number and assigned a chair.

“You could bring your own model, or Peel’s had models lined up,” said Steele, adding they were both paired with Peel’s models from cosmetology schools.

“We got a kit with combs and scissors,” said Elliott, explaining that they each kept their supplies in a styling tool belt rather than the standard salon counters, and were given specific instructions. Hair was to be wet down 10 minutes before the start time, and large clocks generally used for sporting events were set.

Once the clock was ticking, officials from Peel’s and the Guinness Book of World Records kept close tabs on the action with eagle eyes. Camera crews roamed the aisles, documenting every scene from all angles.

The goal was to keep everyone cutting hair collectively for a consecutive 15 minutes. If somebody was unable to finish a cut, replacements waited in the wings to take their spots. EMT’s were on hand to take care of any accidents from a quick snip of the scissors.

“They actually timed us for 17 minutes, just to be on the safe side,” said Steele, adding that the standard salon pump-up chair would’ve made the feat a little easier.

“Honestly, I didn’t think there was a lot of light, and not a whole lot of room,” said Elliott of the challenges.

After 17 minutes the group ceased cutting and the Guinness Book of World Records crew assembled backstage. About 10 minutes later, after checking the stats and cross- referencing information, they returned with the news.

“It was really exciting. We all got temporary certificates,” said Steele, adding their official Guinness Book of World Records certificates, complete with their names printed on the document, will arrive in the mail soon.

Longest Journey on Alternative Fuels set Guinness World Record 2010

 Longest Journey on Alternative Fuels set Guinness World Record - Veggie Van

Diesels continue to set records all over the place. Audi and Peugeot are dominating  the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) with their diesel-powered race cars. The mighty Touareg TDI destroys the offroad competition at Dakkar. Volkwagen's TDI cup is gaining popularity and respect. And who could forget Willie Run '08 (hehe)? Well now, a team of Canadians are on the verge of completing a 45,000-km (27,962-mi) trip in their waste vegetable oil (WVO)-burning Mitsubishi Delica diesel minivan.

In March, Cloe Whittaker and Tyson Jerry broke the standing record of 38,137 km (23,697 mi), set back in 2006 by a German team, as they crisscrossed the continent, stopping to talk to local schools about sustainability. By the time they're done, they'll have driven through every state, province and territory in the U.S. and Canada, all on WVO donated by restaurants they pass along the way. Check out a video interview with Whittaker and Jerry after the jump and check out the team's website here.
