Sushi roll - World's longest California roll set world record - UMass,Amherst

AMHERST - More than 300 volunteers and University of Massachusetts staff and chefs wearing T-shirts proclaiming the future fashioned the longest California roll in history on Monday.

Volunteers wearing T-shirts that read “UMass, Amherst home of the world’s longest California roll” sealed 650 sheets of nori - seaweed - then “glued” it in place with about 200 pounds of sushi rice, then laid on avocado, cucumber and Alaskan crab ... and then rolled all of it into a 422-foot long sushi roll, eclipsing the current record of 340 feet set last November at the University of California, Berkeley.

The endeavor that took about 90 minutes “builds a sense of community,” said Jean Kim, vice chancellor for student affairs and campus life. And she said, “we’re about making records.”

Chancellor Robert C. Holub, who held a range of positions at Berkeley, said “we are out to take every record from them. We’re going to start with the sushi.” Like all the others, he was clad in the special T-shirt and the striped sushi chef hat.

The event in the horseshoe outside of the Whitmore Administration building drew hundreds of spectators, many with cameras, as well as Wally the Green Monster Red Sox Mascot and Sam the UMass Minuteman mascot.

Food Network chef Jet Tila led the proceedings. Just before work commenced he told the crowd that in order to break the world’s record “you must believe, you must visualize, you must know you can do it.”

Barbara J. Decker was helping with her son Paul R. Decker and her husband Eric A. Decker, a professor in the food science department at UMass. She said, “I couldn’t break any records period. So I want to be a part of breaking the record.” Her husband said, “I’m a big supporter of Ken Toong (director of auxiliary enterprises at UMass)."

Tila said this was the second world record he was going for. He previouly created the world’s largest stir fry by cooking 1,805 pounds of food in one wok.

Sonia Weiss and Daniel S. Abrams, of Marlboro, had stationed themselves to straddle the world record line which they initially thought was 330 feet but later moved to the 340 line, he standing on the old record and she on the line of breaking it.

“This is so cool,” Abrams said. In preparation they watched video on how to roll the sushi.

Edward Nino Hernandez - World's shortest living man set Guinness Record by Colombian man

Edward Nino Hernandez is in many ways a typical 24-year-old Colombian male. He loves to dance reggaeton, dreams of owning a fast car and wants to see the world.

Top on his list of people he would like to meet are Jackie Chan, Sylvester Stallone and former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe.

He is slightly taller than a piece of carry-on luggage and weighs just 22lbs (10kgs).

And he has just been officially certified as the world's shortest living man by Guinness World Records, measuring 27ins.

Nino, who works part time as a dancer, said:'I feel happy because I'm unique.'

He also reveals he has a girlfriend - an 18-year-old who is just under 5ft.

Although he has cataracts in both of his eyes that blur his vision and, require urgent surgery that the family can't afford, the budding actor has won a part in a new film, playing a drug thief.

He may like being in the spotlight, but Nino said there are some drawbacks to being the world's smallest man.

'It bothers me that people are always touching me and picking me up,' he said.

Nino's mother, Noemi Hernandez, said of her oldest of five children: 'He hasn't grown since he was two years old.'

She added that doctors never could explain why Nino is so small.

'They never gave us a diagnosis,' Mrs Hernandez, 43, said from her home in Bosa, a poor district of southern Bogota.

She said Nino weighed just 3.3lb (1.5kg) when he was born and was just 15 inches long.

Doctors were at first intrigued as to why he was so small and studied him until he was three years old, but then 'lost interest'.

She and her husband, a security guard, lost a daughter who was born similarly small in 1992.

Their youngest child, Miguel Angel, 11, stands 37ins tall. The other three boys are of normal height and appearance.

Nino is mentally sharp and laughs easily though it's sometimes hard to understand his high-pitched speech and his stubby fingers make writing difficult.

He had to repeat several years of school before dropping out aged about 13.

His mother said he loves to travel - though he hasn't been outside Colombia - and likes to play dominoes and checkers.

'He only gets depressed when he's shut in at home,' she added.

However, it is unclear whether Nino's fame will last long.

Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal is expected to take over after he turns 18 in October. He measures about 22ins and is currently recognized by Guinness as the shortest living teen.

The previous smallest man in the world was He Pingping of China, who was 1.5 inches taller and died in March.
