Ugliest Dog in the World 2010 - Princess Abby, Chihuahua

Worlds Ugliest Dog set World Record 2010 by Chihuahua

The annual contest to find the world’s ugliest dog was held once again over the weekend, in Petaluma, at the Sonoma-Marin. However, due to the demise of Miss Ellie, who won the pedigree category at last year’s event, the field was wide open this year. Last year’s overall winner, Pabst  – a boxer mix, was beaten by the new winner, and officially the ugliest dog in the world, Princess Abby – a Chihuahua.

Princess Abby’s owner, Kathleen Francis, picks up a $1,000 cheque in prize money at the 22nd ugly dog event (yep, they’ve been holding this event every year for 22 years!).

Kathleen Francis doesn’t even consider her dog Princess Abby to be ugly, commenting:

    “I don’t think she’s ugly at all. I think she’s the most beautiful dog.”

The dog’s back and legs are curved in a strange manner, and her left eye is closed, unable to open. The Princess defeated last year’s winner, Pabst, and a strong field of very ugly Chinese Crested dogs. Kathleen Francis only recently adopted the ugly dog, after she had been abandoned by her previous owner.

The deformities within Princess Abby are thought to have been caused by inbreeding, which was a subject hotly argued over not so long ago following the ‘Pedigree Dogs Exposed’ TV program, and also caused the BBC to drop its coverage of Crufts.

Abby was chosen as the ugliest dog in the world by a panel of celebrity judges, judges that included Christina Moore (from ‘That 70’s Show) and Matt Scannell, lead singer from Vertical Horizon.

World Loudest Vuvuzela Blow by a Crowd set World Record 2010 - Netherland

World Loudest Vuvuzela Blow by a Crowd photo, picture, Vuvuzela Blow Holland Netherland, mayor of Hoogezand-Sappemeer event
Around 300 people in a small town in the Netherlands have come together to set the world record for the loudest vuvuzela blow by a crowd.

Observers were on-hand with decibel meters for what organisers call the first ever officially-monitored vuvuzela blow.

The meter-long plastic horns have drawn the ire of football fans across the globe during this year's World Cup. It was the negative response to the vuvuzelas that first gave the mayor of Hoogezand-Sappemeer the idea to organize the event.

"It's not awful. It's just fun to have a toy like that and make a lot of noise with it so I thought, okay, we try and make a spectacle from it and we try to make as much noise as you can possibly make from a vuvuzela. And we succeed today," boasted mayor Yvonne van Maastrigt.

According to officials, the vuvuzela-blowing crowd managed to create a sound at a constant level of 110.1 decibels, with peaks as high as 127.5 decibels. A plane on an airport runway, a jackhammer, or a cymbal crashing all usually generate roughly 120 decibels of noise.

The event was organized ahead of the Netherlands football team's World Cup match against Cameroon.

More than 3,000 people have already been tagged out of an estimated 70,000 who can be seen in the panoramic photo.

Napoleon Bonaparte's Hair sold for US$13,000 at an auction in New Zealand

Napoleon Bonaparte's Hair an auction in New Zealand 2010, Napoleon Bonaparte's Hair sold price,
A lock of hair cut from Napoleon Bonaparte's head after he died has sold for US$13,000 at an auction in New Zealand.

Extra phone lines were installed for the sale to cope with an expected rush of international buyers seeking to snip up the hair cut from the head of former French Emperor a day after his death in 1821 while he was in exile on the island of St. Helena.

The circle of hair was part of a collection brought to New Zealand in 1864 by Denzil Ibbetson, a British commissary officer and artist.

Ibbetson served on St. Helena during the six years that Napoleon was held on the island after being defeated at the Battle of Waterloo.


The collection of about 40 items, including sketches by Ibbetson of Napoleon on his death bed at the age of 51, was sold by the descendants of Ibbetson.

"The collection has really been in remarkable condition and the family has to be commended for preserving this material for all this time, it's nearly 200 years old," Hamish Coney, managing director of the Art+Object Auction House, told Reuters Television.

"In terms of a historical collection that will be located in New Zealand, it's probably one of the most important collections that has ever been found."

According to the auction house the lock was bought by an unnamed collector in London.

Coney said as well as local interest in New Zealand, there had been interest from Hong Kong, the United States, Lithuania and France.

Australian fisherman found 10 Feet Longest Crocodile

An Australian fisherman got the fright of his life when a three-metre (10-foot) saltwater crocodile jumped from the water and locked its jaws on his net.

Joel Pezzutti was casting for bait in a tidal drain in the northern city of Cairns when the croc leapt for his net and scrambled to within touching distance of where he was standing.
"As I was pulling my cast net in, a croc lunged out of the water, ran up the bank and latched onto my cast net," Pezzutti told the AAP newswire.

"I see a lot of crocs when I go fishing out on the boat but this made my heart skip a beat."
Pezzutti said he could have touched the reptile with an outstretched arm if he'd wanted to, adding that it was the "closest contact I've ever had with a croc".
Worried he would be accused of telling tall tales, the fisherman said he dropped his net and ran to the car for a camera and torch to get photographic evidence.

"It was still sitting there on the bank. It hadn't moved and it wasn't scared of me," he said.
An average of two people are killed each year in Australia by aggressive saltwater crocodiles, which can grow up to seven metres (23 feet) long and weigh more than a tonne.

World Fastest Football kick by a Machine Castrol Ichi-go - Japan

On Saturday 19 June 2010, Japanese football fans gathered at Olympic Plaza of National Yoyogi Stadium in Tokyo to witness the Guinness Book of World Record for the fastest football kick achieved by a machine. Castrol, an official sponsor of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, has launched a project to create the world’s fastest kicking machine and has engaged a Japanese team to develop it.

The kicking machine is known as Castrol Ichi-Go and the project is the world’s first engine-driven free kick machine with super human power. It aims to produce an engine that has a steel leg that will deliver a free kick in excess of 200 km/h per hour.


Initially, the team were thinking of simply ‘placing’ a free kick machine in front of the goal. But then Castrol’s partner, Kogoro Kurata, joined the team. Kogoro is an artist who produces prominent, iron-made machines, robots and objects and has a policy to ‘create anything’ and is ‘more interested in creating difficult things than easy ones’.
When introduced to the project Kogoro said ‘I feel like I’m being set up. Right, damn it, if everyone is saying it’s impossible, let’s just do it. Why not give a try?’ and then he increased the scope of the development into creating a machine that runs the field, stands up in front of the goal and free kicks with its steel leg.
The ball goes too fast for the human eye.
