Donna Simpson, the "World's Heaviest Mother," has decided that enough is enough and it’s time to change her lifestyle and lose weight.

'They Call Him Moose' Mother Gives Birth To 16 lb. Baby! (PHOTOS)

Donna was crowned the World’s Heaviest Mother in 2007 by Guinness World Records when she weighed in at 532 pounds before giving birth to her daughter Jacqueline.

Fast-forward to 2011 and the mother of two now weighs 600lbs. So why has she decided to lose weight?

When her husband-to-be ended their relationship, Donna thought it was time for a change. A few months ago, after she and her fiance broke up, the Ohio native moved from New Jersey to Akron, near where she was raised. The change of scenery has inspired her to try to alter her lifestyle.

As she told HuffPost:

    "It's fine to gain weight when you have a partner who will help feed you and take care of everything around you, but that's between two adult people who make the choice. I realized that I couldn't expect my kids to do that for me."

Real Big Babies! The World's Heaviest Tots (PHOTOS)

On her personal website, Donna explained that family concerns are the main reason behind her decision to lose the weight. She says:

    "Now that I have sole responsibility of taking care of my children, I must drastically change my lifestyle, most people see me as a woman who became famous for wanting to gain weight while the rest of the world was trying to slim down. This was true as I was in a relationship that was based on a fetish that exists only in a fantasy."

We hope for the best for Donna and her children in her pursuit to lose weight.

Youngest TV reporter - Jane Haubrich sets world record

Youngest TV reporter - Jane Haubrich sets world record

It is safe to say that by now, everyone is tired of hearing the mundane reports of how terrible Hurricane Irene could have been. And then we meet 5-yaear-old Jane Haubrich.

Ms. Haubrich has unofficially earned the world record for Youngest TV weather reporter,as recognized by the World Records Academy, for her reporting during Hurricane Irene.

“Jane Haubrich here reporting from Doylestown, Penn. The rain is coming down more than it was before. The wind is probably going faster. I think this is just the starting of it. I definitely feel it on my head- just a tiny bit of rain.”

The little reporter was broadcasting via CNN’s iReport, a citizen journalist/blogger reporting system on the CNN website. She did a total of three updates during the storm, the last one finishing just before her bedtime.

“I’m concerned about the flood just like my puppy. It’s definitely raining more because it’s five o’clock now, back to you,” reported Haubrich.

Haubrich’s father, Frederic, is a docuementary film maker who helped set up the news report.

Congratulation Ms. Haubrich, for providing us with honest journalism and for earning a world record.

Roger Allsopp - World's Oldest Person to Swim The English Channel

Roger Allsopp - World's Oldest Person to Swim The English Channel set Guinness World Record

At an age when many of his contemporaries are contentedly inactive, a 70-year-old grandfather of three has become the world's oldest person ever to swim the English Channel.

As The Guardian is reporting, retired breast cancer surgeon Roger Allsopp claimed the new Guinness World Record in the early hours of Wednesday morning, after swimming 21 nautical miles from Dover, England to northern France in 17 hours and 51 minutes.

At 70 years and four months old, Allsopp just narrowly beat the previous world record set by Matt Damon's uncle George Brunstad, who swam England's most famous waterway at 70 years, four days old in August 2004. And it wasn't his first time, either -- a 2006 swim previously snagged Allsopp the title of the oldest Briton to cross the channel, the Daily Record reports.

"I do feel an immense sense of achievement and relief that I have been successful," Allsopp was quoted by the AFP as saying. "This has been an incredible personal challenge for me. That a man of my grand age can achieve such a physical and mental challenge proves that you can live younger if you keep active in mind and body."

The Yorkshire Post reports that Allsopp's efforts helped raise £750,000 (or roughly $1.2 million) for cancer research equipment at the University of Southampton.

''To swim the English Channel is a great challenge and to do it at the mature age of 70 years is astounding," Anna Orford, Official Guinness World Records Adjudicator, told The Telegraph. "We are very pleased to congratulate Roger on this achievement and in doing so setting a new Guinness World Record.''

Though he's already been praised by Orford and others worldwide, Allsopp -- whose first craving after arriving on dry land was a glass of lemonade -- said reprising the achievement is unlikely and he is now looking forward to plenty of rest. "My body has told me not to do anything like this again," he told the UK Press Association.

Submit Guinness World Record - How to Apply for a Guinness World Record?

Submit Guinness World Record - How to Apply for a Guinness World Record?

Got an idea for a Guinness World Record but don't know how to get it verified? Whether you're planning on breaking an existing record or you've come up with a crazy new one, it's not difficult to send in your record and get it approved. Plus, it won't cost anything (unless you request an adjudicator, which will be explained later, for a small fee). Anyone can apply, but those under 18 must get approval from a parent or legal guardian first. Read the following article to learn how you can apply, and increase your chances of having your very own Guinness World Record title under your belt.

1. Choose a record.
When thinking about what kind of record you want to break, keep the following in mind:

Avoid going for non-records - Your claim must involve a breakable record! Is it the tallest, longest, heaviest, smelliest? You may be able to lick your elbow, but it's not considered a record! Guinness World Records Limited rarely accepts "firsts" -- unless it's a "significant first", by which they mean really significant, such as "First man on the moon" or "First movie to gross over $1 billion".
Do not engage in animal cruelty - Don't overfeed your pets just to make them the heaviest or fattest. Your pets will suffer in the course of your attempt to break a record, which could result in their illness or even death. In Guinness World Records 2008, it says that they do not want to see people apply for a world records if they, lick their elbow or they don't want to see the fattest cat.
Do not attempt to break the law - Driving at high speeds on public roads is dangerous and illegal, so just don't do it.
Do not attempt highly outrageous and dangerous stunts such as "teenage surgery" - Teenagers performing surgery or medical operations isn't cool: you're being a danger to society. As are "speedy house builders" who try to build homes in the fastest time. They come down just as fast!
Make sure your record will be interesting to a wide range of people, such as "Tallest man" or "Most yo-yos spun on one hand".

2. Get in contact with Guinness World Records.

Always make sure to contact Guinness World Records before making a record attempt so you know what to do. In order to do this, contact Guinness World Records at http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com. Simply click on "Break a record" and follow the on-screen instructions. Make sure to tell as much as possible about your claim. This is your chance to verify every detail.

Guinness World Records performs research before accepting or rejecting any record proposals, which is why getting your record approved may take weeks or months. For faster approval, consider Guinness World Records' Fast Track! which provides the following advantages:

    Approval of your record within 3 working days of application
    Priority answers to any inquiry you post about the fast track claim via website
    Priority review of your application within 3 days of the evidence you send

    However, the cost for fast track is £400, or $653.92. If you decide to Fast Track your record after you have already sent the evidence, the fee is only £300, or $490.44. Remember, Fast Track does not guarantee acceptance of your record. For more information about Fast Track, visit the official website.

3. Follow the guidelines.

If your application is for an existing record, Guinness World Records will send you the guidelines that the current record holder followed; if it's for a new record, and they like it, they'll write new guidelines for you. Once you receive these, you're ready to make an attempt.

4. Arrange for a trained adjudicator to be present at your event. 

This is just an option though, and is not necessarily done by everyone who applies for a Guinness World Record. There are, however, potential advantages to having an adjudicator at your event, such as:

    Instant verification of your record and presentation of your official certificate.
    An article about your record on the official Guinness World Records website.
    Support in the build-up of your record attempt.
    International media coverage for your event.
    Availability of your adjudicator for interviews and press conferences.
    Guinness World Records carries out on-site adjudications for corporate activities, charity functions, product launches, marketing and PR events, sports events, and to raise awareness for good causes.
    With the publication of Guinness World Records: Gamer's Edition, Guinness World Records now carries out a wide range of PC, console, and arcade game adjudicators, from international shows to local arcades.

5.Gather Evidence.

The guidelines you're sent will contain details of the evidence they need: expect to film video evidence, take photographs, and have at least two independent written witness statements.

6. Send all your evidence to Guinness World Records Limited.

You will receive more information about this when you apply for your record.

7. Wait.

If you've requested an adjudicator at your event, he or she can ratify your record immediately. Otherwise, once they receive your package of evidence, Guinness World Record researchers will assess it to make sure that you've followed the rules correctly. This process can take a few months, so be patient and relax!

8. Celebrate!

If you're successful in your attempt, you'll either receive your official Guinness World Records certificate in the mail within 4-6 weeks or, if you had an adjudicator at your attempt, they'll present you with your certificate right away. You will be in the next issue of the Guinness World Records Book

Guinness World Records Tips:-

Guinness World Records receives over 50,000 applications for world-breaking records every year, but only about 4,000 are accepted, and only 2,000 are able to actually make it into the books.

Some records can be dangerous. Appropriate advice should be obtained before making any dangerous record attempt, and all record attempts are at the participant's risk. In no circumstances will Guinness World Records have any liability for death or injury suffered in any record attempt. Guinness World Records has complete discretion over whether or not to include any particular records in the book. Remember that being a Guinness World Record holder does not guarantee you a place in the book -- that decision is the editor's.

Guinness World Records 2012 book - What Is Guinness World Records?

Guinness World Records 2012 book - What Is Guinness World Records?

Got an idea for a Guinness World Record but don't know how to get it verified? Whether you're planning on breaking an existing record or you've come up with a crazy new one, it's not difficult to send in your record and get it approved. Plus, it won't cost anything (unless you request an adjudicator, which will be explained later, for a small fee). Anyone can apply, but those under 18 must get approval from a parent or legal guardian first. Read the following article to learn how you can apply, and increase your chances of having your very own Guinness World Record title under your belt.

So the new Guinness World Records 2012 book is about to launch. We are in fact three weeks away. But this is no proselytizing sermon about why people should or shouldn't buy the book; no canvassing of opinion as to the virtues of record-breaking in the 21st century (we'll get to that).

It's more about the feeling that accompanies reaching that into-the-void moment just before something is going to be launched en mass to the public. Like you're about to throw a party and hope in God's name people turn up. We do it every year. In fact we've been doing it every year for 50 years.

One book. In over 25 countries and 100 languages. It really is quite something. There's a slow burn within the business that literally grows from day one of the calendar -- hours and hours of editorial work, design options, focus groups, image reviews, word-smithing, paper weighting, print running, foil testing, meetings, meetings about the meetings, online digital platforming.

Three-score-and-ten people working eight hours a day in six countries to produce a 300-page, 3.3 lb book read the world over by young and old looking for their annual dose of "-est." No wonder we hold our breath. That bungee cord feeling is always there.

OK, so this is what any product launch can feel like. But this is no ordinary product. These are dangerous times in publishing and this has been described as the last book standing. An anathema in the industry, millions sold every year, everywhere. Of about the 40,000 records on the database 10 percent make it into the book. So that's about 4,000 records covering over 300 categories accompanied by 900 immaculate full color images.

Open the book on one page and you come face to face with the most dangerous ant in the world, the bulldog ant (Myrmecia pyriformis), which can kill a person (if you let it) in 15 minutes flat. A few pages later and what's that? The largest warship in the world, the Truman, which is as tall as a 24-story building and even has its own newspaper. Are you kidding me?

A dozen or so further pages in and there's a story about Johnny Salo from Finland who won the longest running race ever in 1929 covering 3,635 miles from New York to Los Angeles in a time of 525 hours, 57 minutes and 20 seconds. That's the equivalent of 139 marathons, or 1.7 marathons a day for 79 days. What is that? Quite seriously. What is that? Why?

What is it about records and the people who break them that is so fascinating to people? To me, to you? What is the point I ask? So this is the beginning of my journey and what I hope to document here. For the next few months I will be writing to chronicle all the (mis)adventures that selling the best copyright book entails. The people, the moments, the things that go very wrong, the things that go very well and everything in between. In this way I hope to answer the question, what is Guinness World Records?

Sonim XP3300 Force - World's Toughest Phone set Guinness World Record

World's Toughest Phone - securing its entry into the Guinness World Records.

Sonim announces new mobile phone with longest talk time XP3300 Force.

Lots of phones claim to be tough. Plenty of them are even built to meet military-grade specifications for resistance to water, shock, dust, salt fog, humidity, solar radiation, altitude, and extreme temperature storage. But Sonim can take that claim to toughness one step further, now that the Sonim XP3300 Force has been officially entered into the Guinness World Records.

The ultra-rugged XP3300, which PCMag reviewed back in February (see the slideshow below), survived a drop of over 82 feet onto concrete without any operational damage to claim the title. That's higher than a twelve-story building!

The previous world record has been held since 2008 by the JCB Toughphone, for withstanding a drop of 10.6 feet. To fulfill the requirements for inclusion in the Guinness World Records, the XP3300's record attempt was witnessed by independent judges from Guinness World Records, who tested the phone by making a call and sending a text message to confirm it was still working after the drop.

"We wanted to stamp Sonim's name on the World Record, confirming that the Sonim XP3300 Force is the toughest phone in the world," said Sonim CEO Bob Plaschke. "Most mobile phones are drop-tested to a metre, which just isn't enough in extreme environments such as construction sites, oil rigs or in the forest."


Sonim Technologies ( www.sonimtech.com ) is the provider of the world's most rugged, water-submersible mobile phones designed specifically for workers in challenging outdoor and industrial environments. Sonim's industry-leading three-year comprehensive warranty has redefined customer expectations of rugged technology. Sonim provides a suite of high-performance workforce management applications including push-to-talk and lone worker safety services on cellular networks. The company is headquartered in San Mateo, California and offers its products in over 50 countries.

According to Sonim, the XP3300 surpasses military specifications for ruggedness, and is water and dust proof. It is certified against salt, fog, humidity, transport shock, and thermal shock. It's even water-submersible to 6.5 feet for 1 hour.

At PCMag, we tossed the XP3300 against brick walls and froze it into blocks of ice without a hitch. Our lead mobile analyst, Sascha Segan, got an XP3300 that was encased in seven pounds of concrete, which he proceeded to break out by repeatedly whacking it with a hammer until it crumbled away. Incredibly, the phone still worked, the screen was undamaged, and it was able to make and receive calls, though a few keys were left out of commission.

Tiny books collection set Limca Book of Record by Sathar Adhoor

Smallest collection of poems and fiction set Limca Book of Record by Sathar Adhoor.

WITH three tiny books, a business man in Kunnamkulam has made his mark in the Limca Book of World Records.

Sathar Adhoor from Kunnamkulam is the first proud writer whose name has been entered in the Limca Book of Records for the smallest collection of poems and fiction.

Sathar has been working since 2008 in order to get into the Book. "The struggle to shape my thoughts into these tiny books is purely an act of determination to come up with a different way of writing," he says.

He believes that writing is highly competitive these days. So, it requires hard work to get into a slot.

The books are 101 SMS Stories (40mm x 25mm x 4mm), 101 SMS poems (30mmx25mmx4mm) and 50:50 (16mmx13mmx4mm). Each book has 100 pages in it. 50:50, made out of an A4 paper is a collection of poems and stories weighing two-and-half grams.

He used to write poems and send them to publications for years, but they never saw the light. But he remembers that his name and work had been criticised in some publications by mainstream writers.

A dedicated writer, he also runs a real estate business. But end of the day, he finds something to scribble on in his diary, which thoughts finally were transferred to the tiny books.

"Media have helped me a lot in getting into the record book," says Sathar. He had to send all the newspaper cuttings of his news published, to the authority to certify his book's authentication. Sathar's friend Fahad Kottol offered free printing of the books. And he sells his books free of cost.

Though he is not an established full time writer, he has won many awards for his writings. Akshara Kala Puraskaram, Deshiya Malayala Vedi Award, Anganam Katha Puraskaram and Herman Gundert Award 2009 are a few of them. Minaarangal is the only published novel in his account and he is on writing of another one. He had directed a 10-second long short film named The Man.

Sathar Adhoor always keeps off from mainstream writers but make experiments in his writings and now he is in a new venture to bring another shock to his readers.

Longest and highest wire walk set World Record by Swiss stunt artist

Swiss stunt artist set World Record for cable car stunt on highest German peak

Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany - Swiss stunt artist Freddy Nock set a spectacular world record Saturday, by walking almost a kilometre along the cable that carries passengers up Germany's highest mountain.

He plans to submit his feat for entry in the Guinness Book of Records as the "longest and highest wire walk above sea level without a balancing pole".

Nock, 46, gained 348 metres in altitude as he walked - without a balancing pole or security harness - along the 50-millimetre-thick cable that transports the cable car to the top of the Zugspitze mountain, in southern Bavaria.

The gradient reached 57 degrees in places, almost equivalent to the angle between 12 o'clock and 2 o'clock on an analogue watch.

This feat enabled Nock to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.

Most hugs Guinness World Record by Nick Cannon

Most hugs Guinness World Record by Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon is aiming for a place in the Guinness World Records after staging a stunt aimed at earning him the title for the most hugs given in one hour.

    “I would like to invite everyone to come help me break the Guinness World Record and let’s ‘Hug It Out,” Cannon, 31, said in statement prior to the event, which went down before last night’s (August 19) Mets vs Brewers game at Citi Field in New York.

According to reports, the “Rollin with Nick Cannon Morning Show” host spiced things up by giving all participants in the hug-fest a commemorative Nick Cannon Mets T-shirt and awarding the first 100 huggers with free tickets to that night’s MLB game.

In a post on his website, Cannon – the recent father to twins with wife Mariah Carey – posted , “I am going to make History!”

Cannon’s record attempt has yet to be verified by Guinness officials, but he would have had to beat the current best of 1,749 hugs in an hour, which was set by Nick Vujicic on Sept. 25, 2010.

Regardless of the outcome, the fun-filled event was a sucess as Paper Jamz of WowWee said it would donate one toy for every hug to benefit the children at the Mets Care Room at the New York Hospital of Queens, CBS reports.

LYNDEN - Sure there's the Zipper and the Galaxy 3000 and the Ring of Fire, but the real ride to be on at the Northwest Washington Fair Saturday, Aug. 20, wasn't on the fairway.

It was slow-moving, with no fast drops or gravity-defying tricks. Just 300,000 pounds of hay on 10 semi trailer beds, pulled by a snow plow. But after an 11 minute, 12 second loop through the dirt in the Grandstand, it broke the world record for the largest hayride ever.

It didn't just break the record either. It obliterated it. With 639 people - teens, families with babies and grandparents - sitting tight on the hay, the ride more than doubled the previous record of 249 people set in South Carolina in 2010, Guinness World Records adjudicator Kim Partrick said.

For the people who hit the hay to break the record, it was a very memorable day at the fair.

"It was awesome being a part of something really special," said Custer resident Norma Hachett, who was on the hayride with her daughter and grandkids.

Her grandson loves hayrides and already wanted to go again once it was over.

"On my bucket list, I figure breaking a world record is on there somewhere," said Bellingham resident Erik Gibson. "This is the easiest way for me, sitting on a pile of hay."

The mastermind of the hayride was Sean Taylor of Lynden's Big Oak Ministries, who was approached by fair manager Jim Baron about breaking a record at the fair. He worked with people at Guinness to come up with the best record to break that could include a lot of public participation and decided on the hayride. Safety was a top priority, with test runs of the trailers on the loop, training for the volunteers and safety advice from LTI trucking, which provided the trailers and support.

Taylor felt good to watch the record-breaking ride go off without a hitch Saturday, but he doesn't know about setting up another record-breaker for next year. It was a lot of fun but also a lot of work.

"I might be a one-record guy," he said. "We'll see."

If he does give it a shot again, though, Lynden resident Karen Boon will be all over it. She was one of the first in line to take part in the hayride.


Most twins and triplets in one class sets world record by Texas middle school

Most twins and triplets in one class sets world record by Texas middle school

A Texas middle school has broken the world record for the most twins and triplets in one class.

The seventh-grade at Indian Springs Middle School in Keller took the Guinness World Records title of most multiple births from another Texas school, which set the record last year.

Indian Springs’ tally was 13 sets of twins, one set of triplets and one set of quadruplets. The previous record holders J.J. Pearce High School in Richardson, had 10 sets of twins and one set of triplets.

English teacher and coach Matt Sanchez said: 'I started noticing all the multiples because we had a bunch in athletics.' He also had more twins in his English class.

Sanchez, researched the record and found that the record was 10. 'I realized we had more,' Sanchez said. The seventh grade teacher said the kids enjoyed the novelty of gathering for the record.

'It's a memory to build on and carry with them,' he said. 'It’s like a big family now. They’re forever linked.'

Kyra Johnson, an Indian Springs mom who helped lead the record-breaking effort said:  'We had to send copies of all 33 birth certificates, enrollment documents from the school, a letter from the principal and two notarised witness statements verifying the validity of all the documents.
'As you can imagine, it took several weeks to pull all of this together.'

Her sons Cade and Camden Johnson have always been in schools with lots of multiples. Cade said: 'It seemed normal to me because we had a bunch of friends who were twins.'

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, about 2.8 percent of births were twins in 1998, the year most of the seventh-graders were born. For triplets, the share was 0.18 percent, or fewer than 2 in 1,000 births, while 627 births nationwide were quadruplet.


Most people singing national anthem sets world record by Pakistan

Most people singing national anthem sets world record by Pakistan

KARACHI: Pakistan achieved the world record for most people singing a national anthem simultaneously late Saturday night when 5,857 Pakistanis chanted the national anthem here at the Defence Stadium in connection with the Independence Day celebrations. The most noteworthy part of the achievement was that the event was arranged by two jingoistic youngsters, Abid Beli and Waqas Pai with a vigorous campaign on social and digital media without any sponsorship or support from the public or private sector. People along with their families and friends started gathering at the designated venue at about 10pm. Rangers, police and scout personnel surrounded the stadium, while volunteers organised the traffic and guided people.

The excited crowd chanted slogans as they filled the ground. Youngsters with face paint and wristbands of national colours kept waving the Pakistani flag. Distinguished in the parade of national flags, was a 40-metre national flag held by youngsters. Renowned television host, entrepreneur and intellectualist Faisal Qureshi was hosting the event.

Addressing the participants of the ceremony Beli the main organiser congratulated the people for breaking the world record of most people singing the national anthem. Later while talking to Daily Times he said that the idea was put forth by his associate Pai. He said that the objective behind organising the event was to motivate Pakistani youth to play their due role in the betterment of society.

He was of the view that the bomb blasts across the country including the attack on General Headquarter (GHQ) and Abbottabad operation were the events that compelled the youth to gather up and do something for their country. Beli further said that earlier, India held the record for most people singing the national anthem but he said, it was a flaw as the Indians had sung ‘Vande Mataram’, which is not their national anthem. He further said that they wrote to the concerned authorities in this regard and in response the title was repealed and awarded to Philippines, where 5,248 students, staff, faculty and alumni of MSU-IIT sang ‘Lupang Hinirang’ Philippines’ national anthem on Sept 1, 2009. To a question he said that the behaviour of federal and provincial government was regrettable, as they did not permit the event to be organised at Ibn-e-Qasim Park on the pretext of security concerns.

He said that political parties are provided with the permission of taking out rallies and large public meetings, but the government did not support citizens for a noble cause. Pai said not to him but for the entire nation it was a great achievement particularly when the country is facing deteriorating situation.

He applauded the fervour of people, who gathered despite of rains, strike and other hurdles. He said that the cost of the event was about Rs 0.7 million which was contributed by the organisers and their friends. Only a minor sponsorship was offered at the eleventh hour, he added. He also appreciated the role of Defence Housing Authority, who provided them the venue without any cost. “Now we are planning to improve the record in upcoming years, beside forming other records. In this regard we would announce soon another event on Quaid-e-Azam day,” a fervent Pai said. Renowned politician Marvi Memon was also present on the occasion.

She said that in 1947 Muslims of the sub-continent had earned their freedom and now they are free but yet to gain the real liberty. She appealed the masses to unite for the betterment and progress of the country. Captain Wasi, who was freed along with his ship crew after months-long captivity by the Somali pirates, was present on the occasion along with his daughter Laila Wasi. Addressing the ceremony, he said that disasters and tragedies have always encouraged nations, particularly Muslims to unite. In 1940s miseries of the Muslims of sub-continent encouraged them to fight for their freedom. Today, we are facing a number of problems again and the nation will unite soon as this is an opportunity to shun the differences, he added. Laila Wasi, a student of grade 6, while talking to Daily Times said that she wanted to see the metropolis becoming the city of peace.

She appealed the entire nation to stand united. In the end, thousands of people sang the national anthem, breaking the previous records. Now the tickets’ record, photos and video evidences will be sent to the Guinness Book of World Record authorities as a formality for awarding the record to Pakistan.

Dodgeball Guinness world record 2011

Metro Detroiters of all ages, ethnicities and zip codes are invited to come together to participate in a world record-breaking dodgeball game. Presented by the Dodge brand, organizers expect 'Dodgeball in the D' and surrounding family festival activities to draw more than 5,000 people to historic Belle Isle Park in Detroit on Saturday, August 20, 2011.

The dodgeball game begins at 1 p.m. with other family-friendly activities running from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Those wishing to participate in the world record-breaking game itself must register in advance at http://www.DodgeballintheD.com.

The dodgeball game will feature two teams made up of players of all ages, with younger children facing opponents of similar ages to avoid injuries. In case of an emergency, medical services will be available on site. Organizers will document the game according to the standards of Guinness World Records and submit the attempt to Guinness auditors for world-record consideration.

“‘Dodgeball in the D’ is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of history and do something great for Detroit,” said Justin Jacobs, 28, who created 'Dodgeball in the D' with fellow Detroiter Marlowe Stoudamire, 34. “Locally, we know Detroit is a great place to live, work, and play, but across the country, not enough people are aware of the opportunities Detroit has to offer, socially and professionally.”

In addition to the game, 'Dodgeball in the D' will feature free food, entertainment, information and more for Metro Detroiters of all ages. Activities are divided into five “Xperience” zones: After-School Programs, Non-Profit, Health & Wellness, Family Fun and Sports. Joining the Dodge brand in sponsoring the event are regional business anchors Henry Ford Health System, Crain’s Detroit Business, Health Alliance Plan (HAP) and the Detroit Red Wings.

All activities are free and include: Detroit Red Wings interactive fan experience, Henry Ford Health System career experience, appearance by NHRA Funny Car Racer and Detroit native Brian Olatunji, inflatables, Detroit Fire Department fire truck, caricatures, video games, face painting, health screenings, live DJ, youth sports clinics and demonstrations, singing and dancing demonstrations and more.

“‘Dodgeball in the D’ will show the world the very best of Detroit, not just that we know how to have fun, but that we can work together to achieve great things, regardless of age, ethnicity or religion,” Stoudamire said. “We want to smash the current record and bring some positive attention to Detroit. To do it, we need more sponsors, more volunteers and more players. From local barbershops to executive boardrooms, we’re asking all Metro Detroiters to step up and help us make it happen.”

Edinburgh - Longest reading chain attempt to smash world record

Edinburgh - Longest reading chain attempt to smash world record

The first UNESCO City of Literature will try to set a new world record for the longest reading chain in the world this Friday.

Sighthill Library is hosting the Guinness World Record attempt, where readers from across Edinburgh will read one sentence aloud from Scottish children’s author Theresa Breslin’s novel Prisoner in Alcatraz.

Organisers are hoping to attract 350 readers to smash the current record of 290 people, set in Vienna, Austria on September 26, 2010.

Diane Yule, team leader at Sighthill Library said: “We thought we will try to break a record and the longest reading chain seemed like a good one.

“Edinburgh is a City of Literature and we feel it would be quite a fitting record for the city to hold.

“We are doing this in conjunction with Edinburgh International Book Festival and Edinburgh Libraries.

“It is part of the plan to bring the festival out of the city centre and into other parts of the capital.

“Sighthill Library said it would take it on because we have a brilliant community down here and we get a lot of backing from the locals for things we do.”

Theresa Breslin’s novel was selected due to its popularity in Sighthill and the author’s long connection with library services.

Diane said: “Theresa used to be a librarian and she is also spearheading a campaign to save the Scottish libraries.

“The reason we chose Prisoner in Alcatraz is because it was printed by Edinburgh’s Barrington Stoke. They publish for children with reading difficulties such as dyspraxia or dyslexia. Their books are printed on a special type of paper and they use a certain type of font.

“We use them a lot for our reading groups. Both the author and the publisher are very popular in our community.”

Ms. Breslin said: “I've been a fan of the Guinness Book of Records forever and am absolutely thrilled that my book Prisoner in Alcatraz will feature in a record-breaking attempt! It's great to see Edinburgh Libraries encouraging reading and literacy in such a fun way.

“I am so looking forward to meeting everyone involved and can't wait to hear all those different voices reading out my story.”

Over 200 readers have already signed up including local authors The Mulgray Twins, Joyce Holmes, Charlie James and illustrator Julia Lacome. However, Sighthill Library is urging as many bookworms as possible to participate.

Largest Parade Of Jaguar cars sets Guinness World Record 2011

Largest Parade Of Jaguar cars sets Guinness World Record 2011

The 2011 Silverstone Classic (22-24 July) broke many records, but the biggest accolade for the event comes after Guinness World Records confirmed that a new record was set for the ‘largest parade of Jaguar cars’ when 767 Jaguar E-types took part in a special parade lap of the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit.

On-track, a total of 1104 race car entries and a crowd of 80,000 across the weekend ensured that the Silverstone Classic proudly lived up to its claim of being the 'the world's biggest classic motor racing festival'.

But that was only part of the story for this sensational event, as thousands of classic cars packed into the Silverstone infield to be part of the world’s biggest celebration of automotive heritage.

The 2011 event was the major celebration of the 50th birthday of the Jaguar E-type, first produced in 1961. More than 1000 E-types were on site and the vast majority of these took to the Grand Prix circuit on Saturday for a unique parade. Although in excess of 800 E-types took to the famous grand prix track, the record of 767 is based on the number of participating cars meeting the strict record verification criteria.

Getting over 800 gleaming E-types on and off the Silverstone track presented a considerable logistical challenge and the result was an unrivalled display of one of the most beautiful sports cars ever produced. Owners came from across Europe, from North America, Mexico and Australia to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Among the parade were some very special examples of the E-type. These included famous E-types with registration numbers 9600 HP, 77 RW and 848 CRY as well as the Lindner/Nocker low-drag racer.

9600 HP is the oldest surviving E-type and the only 1960 prototype in existence. It was the original launch car, the 150 mph road test car and the subject of the book ‘The Most Famous Car in the World’. 77 RW is the earliest surviving production roadster and an original press car. 848 CRY was the twelfth roadster produced and the most active racing E-type in 1961; it also appeared in the film ‘The Italian Job’. The Lindner/Nocker low-drag lightweight racer was one of the 12 original Lightweight E-types, raced in 1963/64 by Peter Lindner and Peter Nocker and the subject of a famous recent restoration.

However, the Silverstone Classic was not just about the Jaguar E-type as over 7000 classic cars from 120 clubs filled the venue in a stunning display of automotive design, development and passion. Many of the clubs present were celebrating anniversaries, including 75 years of the Bentley Drivers’ Club, 25 years of the BMW M3 with the BMW Car Club UK, 60 years of the Morgan Sports Car Club, 75 years of the BMW 328 with Historic BMW, 50 years of the Porsche Club GB and 50 years of Reliant sports cars with the Reliant Sabre and Scimitar Owners’ Club.

Hamilton man attempt to break Guinness World Record for marathon drumming

Hamilton man attempt to break Guinness World Record for marathon drumming

The 40-year-old cancer survivor has been playing the skins at the Burlington Music Centre since Friday at 8 a.m. in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for marathon drumming.

If Gaul can keep the sticks going past Wednesday at 8:01 a.m., he will have surpassed the record of 120 hours of drummming.

Gaul is hoping to raise $1 million for the Canadian Cancer Society in memory of his sister Toni, who battled paranasal cancer for five years before dying last year. Gaul survived testicular cancer.

“Gaul is doing as well as can be expected. His ears are starting to hurt and he’s looking a bit tired but he’s hanging in there,” his fiance Casey Stinchcombe, said after he reached the 102-hour mark.

For every hour of continuous play Gaul receives a five minute break, which he can either use immediately or bank up for later use. At the 102 hour mark Gaul had banked more than 45 minutes.

“It looks like he’s going to make it this year and with that 45 minutes saved, he can take a power nap,” Stinchcombe said.

Stinchcombe said Gaul’s diet has included meatballs, chicken and shrimp, chocolate bars, scallops, bacon and eggs, and protein shakes.

This is Gaul’s second attempt at breaking the record. Last year he managed to drum for 70 hours straight before dropping out.

“I am doing this because I wish to ‘pay it forward,’ Gaul wrote on his website before he started the drum marathon. “Thanks to amazing advances in technology I survived. A lot of people worked really hard to make that possible. Without them, I would not be here today. I owe it to them... I owe it to those who have not yet been diagnosed with cancer...No one should ever have to go through what I went through.”

His sister was his inspiration on the first attempt at the record last year and he wanted to inspire her to stay strong and fight her courageous battle, he wrote.

“Toni lost her battle but the war is not over, Gaul said. “My mother has spent nearly a decade watching her children suffer with cancer. No one should have to witness that.”

By the end of the marathon, Gaul will have played hundreds of songs. There is a DJ spinning rock songs, as well as live bands who have joined him.

Bakers create World's largest cream puff Guinness World Record

Bakers create World's largest cream puff Guinness World Record  2011

A new standard for cream puffery was set Thursday at the Wisconsin State Fair with a 125.6-pound cream puff certified by Guinness World Records as the world’s largest. As measured by Guinness judge Danny Girton Jr., the giant version of the fair favorite was 7 1/2 inches high and 38 inches wide.

Team Cream Puff, led by David "Puff Daddy" Schmidt of the Wisconsin Bakers Association, crafted a 125.6-pound cream puff Thursday at the Wisconsin State Fair, and quickly had it certified by Guinness World Records as the world's largest.

It is a record that had never been set before, but now it's the new standard for puffery. And they have the commemorative plaque to prove it.

The slab of cream, sandwiched between two shells, was carefully measured out at 7½ inches high and 38 inches wide. The giant cream puff had to be baked in a deck oven - much larger than the ones used to make the fair's trademark cream puffs - for 6½ hours.

"It took a lot of patience," said Tom Barger, assistant manager of the Original Cream Puff Bakery at the fair. "I am relieved that we did it and that it actually worked."

Presiding at Thursday's weigh-in was Danny Girton Jr., the corporate adjudications manager for Guinness World Records. Girton noted that 97% of attempts to set a world record - even ones that are the first time - prove unsuccessful. He said the fair's record cream puff would be included in the 2013 edition of the book.

Since this was the first time, it was decided that the cream puff had to weigh at least 50 pounds to be considered for the record.

"It is three times bigger than the minimum requirement.We blew it out of the water," Schmidt said. "There was a lot of pressure to do this and do this right."

Schmidt noted that the 15.5 gallons of cream used in making the final puff were nothing compared to the 10,000 gallons used during the 11-day fair.

"The size is a reflection of how important it is to the fair," said Susan Crane, one of the bakers assembling the final product on stage. "It is important a record like this was broken in Dairyland."

Ten to 12 people prepared the cream and two outer shells in the late-night hours. Thursday afternoon, Schmidt and his crew assembled the final product on a scale, on stage, in front of a crowd of more than 100 people in Central Park at the State Fair grounds.

Fairgoers climbed on stage to get a closer look, one even sticking his finger in the cream. Nearby, a little girl pleaded to give the monstrous cream puff a hug.

"You can't go wrong with something like this," said Roseann Peskie of New Berlin. "This is unreal."

Lingering onstage in the minutes after the record was announced was 10-year-old Hannah Bast, whose fourth-grade class at Clarendon Avenue School in Mukwonago started an online petition to make cream puffs the official dessert of Wisconsin.

"I was really surprised and proud," Hannah said. It's a really good dessert that represents Wisconsin."

Unfortunately, the giant cream puff didn't meet its logical fate. Shrinking by the minute in the afternoon sun, it was no longer edible, according to Schmidt.

"It has to be disposed of now." he said with a laugh. "It has been in the heat too long."

Bhubaneswar - 3,000 Odissi dancers set Guinness World Record

Bhubaneswar - 3,000 Odissi dancers set Guinness World Record

Bhubaneswar, Aug. 13: The classical dance form of the state is all set to enter the Guinness Book of World Records. The state culture department, along with Washington-based Indian Performing Arts Promotion (IPAP) Inc., is busy organising the Fourth International Odissi Festival in December in the city. The festival will feature a unique event where 3,000 Odissi dancers will perform simultaneously.

“We had the concept in mind for quite some time now and have even secured the license of Guinness for the event. The plan got a boost from chief minister Naveen Patnaik when we discussed about it on Friday,” said Pratap Das, a board member of the IPAP.

Eminent artistes, culture enthusiasts, and dance and music gurus such as Minati Mishra, Shantanu Mohapatra, Ramahari Das, Lalit Man Singh, Khirod Patnaik, Sunil Kothari and many others are members of the IPAP.

“The Odissi spectacle will be held on the inaugural evening of the Fourth International Odissi Festival. For the second time, the festival will be held in Bhubaneswar. It will feature over 500 international Odissi artistes from 20 countries,” said Das. The festival was earlier held in 2000 and 2003 in Washington, D.C. and in 2006 in Bhubaneswar.

“The chief minister was excited about the event and promised us all support. He said he would invite President Pratibha Patil for the occasion. He also suggested holding the event at Kalinga Stadium so that 3,000 dancers can present their performance in front of a huge crowd,” said Das, adding that the event will be dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the formation of the state.

In his fifties, Das, an NRI, had moved to USA to serve the US federal government. He had held important positions in education, defence and justice departments there. At present, he works with the US department of agriculture. The International Odissi Festival is his brainchild, for which he has already visited Orissa thrice this year.

Culture secretary Ashok Tripathy said the department had already started working for the international festival that will be held from December 23 to 30.

World's largest stop-motion animated film with Nokia N8

World's largest stop-motion animated film shot entirely with Nokia N8

A short movie filmed using just three Nokia smartphone cameras has set a record for the world's largest stop-motion animated film.

The film "Gulp" was produced over 11,000 square feet of sand on Pendene Beach in South Wales over a week, according to the Guinness World Records.

"It was shot using three Nokia N8 smartphones attached to a cherry picker hoisted 36 meters (118ft) in the air," it said.

With the beach as a canvas, fish, seagulls and the sea were created with a rake, while the film's prop designers built a life-size fishing boat that was used by a "fisherman" played by one of the film's artists.

"The film was a huge test of planning and coordination with mother nature. We were incredibly lucky with conditions and tide times – sometimes we got our final frame for the day just as the waves crashed in around our set," co-director Will Studd said.

"Gulp" tells the story of a lone fisherman who becomes the hunted after landing a huge catch, the Guinness World Records site said.

Its directors were "Sumo Science", who form part of Oscar-winning animation studio Aardman —the creators of the famous stop-motion characters Wallace and Gromit.

Cadillac parade set Guinness world record Barton woman

Cadillac parade set Guinness world record Barton woman

Lorie Seadale is getting nervous. With three weeks to go, she has about 70 percent of the Cadillacs she needs to beat the Guinness Book of World Record for a parade of the top-of-the-line General Motors’ sedans.

She doesn’t yet have 103 Cadillacs registered for the Barton parade, the number necessary to beat the current record of 102 set in 2002 in The Netherlands.

“I don’t want to fall short,” she said. “I’m at about 70 percent, not all of them in hand.”

The Cadillac parade will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 17, on opening day of the Orleans County Fair, and officials from Guinness will be there to see if it breaks the record, which relatives of the Cadillac’s founder are urging Vermonters to bring back to the United States.

In addition to Cadillacs, Seadale is looking for volunteers, particularly flaggers. Guinness Book of World Records officials have very specific rules about what constitutes a parade, she said. For instance, it can’t be interrupted by more than two car lengths.

“I need seven flaggers for different points on the parade route to make sure the line doesn’t get broken,” she said. “I can’t afford to lose this on a technicality.”

Seadale started organizing the parade last winter after she learned that Henry Leland, the man who invented and built Cadillacs, was born in Barton in 1843. He became an automobile engineer who built and sold the Lincoln and Cadillac. He sold the first Cadillac in 1902.

People have registered cars for the parade from all over New England. A pink 1959 convertible is coming from New Brunswick, Seadale said.

There are 3,000 Cadillacs registered in Vermont alone, she said, so the critical mass exists — making the world record is just a matter of getting the requisite 103 Cadillacs to Barton on Aug. 17.

A special invitation has been issued to Bruce Springsteen, the rock singer who is a Cadillac enthusiast.

On a You Tube video, Doug Leland, a distant relative of Henry Leland’s, invites Mr. Springsteen to show up in his Cadillac, saying that both he and the car are American classics.

Leland goes on to make an appeal to all U.S. Cadillac owners, saying that the record for a procession of such an American classic as the Cadillac should return to the U.S. rather than be held by a European country.

Seadale said she’s picked up some interesting Cadillac items on e-Bay, and they will be incorporated into seven custom-designed trophies for the Cadillac car show that will follow the parade.

The show’s categories will include: oldest Cadillac to participate, the car that traveled the furthest, the people’s choice, the Orleans County Fair president’s choice, the Henry M. Leland family’s choice, the most festive display of American pride, and the best dressed driver and passenger in vintage or period clothing.

The trophies for each of the categories will include a vintage Cadillac hood ornament.

Other prizes that will be awarded to the public through a drawing include a two-page frameable copy of a U.S. patent for a 1933 Flying Goddess hood ornament, ten-packs of Car and Driver’s Cadillac Collection collector cards, and a 33-year-old, mint condition collector’s card printed in Italy about Henry Leland.

It could be that some people may just be planning to show up for the parade, Seadale noted. But she urges them to pre-register.

“For my sanity, that’s one reason,” she said. Also, she said the more cars that are pre-registered the smoother parade day will go. “It will save a lot of time in the morning, the day of the parade.”

Painting World Record - Atmakuru Ramakrishna

Painting World Record - Atmakuru Ramakrishna,

What started out as a record for painting 100 paintings in 24 hour, Atmakuru Ramakrishna beat himself to it by finishing in thirteen hours, using only his fingertips.

He used oil and stretched canvases measuring 12x16 inches.

Ramakrishna is the proud holder of Limca Book of Records, Indian Book of Records, Global World Records and Wonder World Records. Ramakrishna is applying for Guinness Book of World Records as well.

Atmakuru Ramakrishna started painting right from his childhood and has won many prizes in his school days. With a Fine Arts degree and gold medallist from JNTU, Hyderabad, Ramakrishna has won many accolades. He says, “I pay attention to textures, after the colours, I think that it's the textures that do all the talking when it comes to paintings and works of art.” In all of his paintings, the mix of the skies and clouds is unique.

Ramakrishna says that it hardly takes him more than 20 minutes to finish an entire landscape painting on canvas— he is like a man with brushes instead of fingers.

This ‘finger-painter' started paintings such landscapes when he was making posters for literacy promotion, “Instead of using finger prints as a sign, get educated and use the finger prints to paint wonders…” he says.

Ramadan Kareem Mubarik.
May Allah Enables Us
To Do M0re And M0re Good Deeds
N To Make The M0st Of Dix M0nth…
May Allah Forgive R Sins.Ameen.
Remembr Me In Ur Prayers.

Wishing all my beloved readers a happy month of Ramadan Kareem filled with joy, love and holiness. Ramadan is the month of fasting where we refrain from eating and drinking for the love of God. This month has immense significance in the life of every Muslim and this ninth month of the Islamic Calendar is the holiest of all months. Ramadan gifts us with 5 things which are,

1 Iftar,
2 Sehri
3 Charity,
4 Laylat al-Qadr and
5 Eid Ul Fitr.

Iftar is the time during sunset when we break the fast with something sweet like date which is the Sunnah of the Last Prophet Mohammad PBUH.

Sehri is the time before dawn when we wake up in the middle of night and take meal before the call of Fajr Prayer.

Charity has great importance in the month of Ramadan. There is 70 times more reward to give charity/sadaqa/Zakat in ramadan than any other month. Fixed percentage of Income is given as charity to poor, needy and orphans.

Laylat al-Qadr is the night on which the holy Book of Muslims i.e. Quran Majeed was revealed to mankind. According to Muslim belief this revelation occurred on an odd-numbered night during the last 10 days of Ramadan, either the night of the 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th or 29th.

Eid ul-Fitr is the holiday that marks the end of the fasting period of Ramadan. It’s the happiest moment in our lives which is celebrated the best we can. We buy new cloths, visit friends and families and share love and brotherhood.

I am now all ready for work and I apologies that I had kept you waiting for so long. Ramadan Mubarak. :)

Cedar Point sets Guinness World Record for most people bouncing beach balls

Cedar Point sets Guinness World Record for most people bouncing beach balls at the same time

Cedar Point is known for breaking records with their sky scraping roller coasters, but yesterday, two different kinds of records were broken by guests at the park.

Representatives from Guinness World Record were on hand as park guests succeeded in setting two new world records in beach ball bouncing and sunscreen application

First, 401 guests were able to bounce beach balls for 10 seconds to establish a world record for the most people bouncing beach balls at the same time, a new category for the famous world record keepers.

After establishing the beach ball record, the sun was shining and temperatures were around 80 degrees as 681 guests put on sunscreen at the same time, breaking the record set over a month ago in Ostend, Belgium, on June 25.

The two events were certified by an official adjudicator for Guinness World Records, Philip Robertson.

“Guinness world records is one of those institutions that everyone wants to take part in,” Robertson said. “It’s fun, entertaining, ordinary people doing extraordinary types of things.”

The events took place around 9:30 a.m. yesterday morning. Participants in the two record attempts were able to purchase discounted tickets, and portions of those ticket sales will be given to the American Cancer Society, according to Robin Innes, director of public relations for Cedar Point.

“Cedar Point is well-known for record-breaking coasters. Now, our guests can help us set other records at the park,” Innes said prior to the events. “Plus, the money goes for a good cause, the American Cancer Society. So, it’s a win-win for everybody.”

Largest simultaneous shower at a single venue break world record

Largest simultaneous shower at a single venue break world record

DICKSON CITY - Before this weekend, the most people Tom Mihalick had ever showered with at one time was six.

"It was at my fraternity in college," he said with a laugh.

But on Saturday, the Jermyn resident was prepared to shower with more than 160 others - most of them perfect strangers - in an attempt to break a world record for the most people showering in one location simultaneously.

The current record-holder for largest simultaneous shower at a single venue was logged in July 2009, when 145 people showered together in Gurnee, Ill., according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

Saturday's attempt was made in the back parking lot of McCann Business School, where crews with SSGC and Scotty's Services built a 68-foot by 86-foot plywood structure that featured shower heads at regular intervals. Water was supplied by several fire trucks.

To count as a world record, participants must stay in the shower for at least five minutes and lather up using a biodegradable soap donated by The Fanciful Fox in Scranton.

"It is the most bizarre request I've ever had," said Fanciful Fox co-owner Amanda Fox. "(They) asked for 400 slivers of soap and we said, 'Sure.'"

The idea is the brainchild of Randy Snedeker, who decided to link the attempt with a fundraiser for St. Jude's in honor of his late mother, Dorothy.

"I've always wanted to break a world record," Snedeker said.

Mihalick, a mail carrier, came out for the group shower because he knew Snedeker from his postal route.

"I miss seeing her," he said. "She was a nice lady and made my route great."

Many, including Mihalick, donned swimwear for group shower. Others added whimsical touches, including water wings, shower caps, life jackets and snorkels.

Long Pond residents Dave and Lynne Woolfenden kept things simple; both wore bathing suits and brought towels to dry off with after. The couple had heard about the event on television and thought it would be fun to help.

Sibu breaks Guinness world record with longest graffiti scroll

Sibu breaks Guinness world record with longest graffiti scroll

SIBU: About 500 youths painted a 1.6km-long graffiti to place Sibu in the Guinness Book of World Records — the first ever for the district.

Lanang MP and Sibu Municipal Council (SMC) chairman Datuk Tiong Thai King described the momentous event as history in-the-making for the local populace. Guinness World Records adjudicator Seyda Subasi-Gemici from Turkey was present to ensure everything went smoothly and the rules for the attempt were followed.

“My job is to record the attempt, and verify that the whole attempt took place according to the guidelines of Guinness World Records,” Seyda said.

The guidelines among others specified that the height of the canvas needed to be at least 1.5 metres.

“And there should be no gaps in the canvas. My final duty is to measure the canvas to confirm it is longer than the one in Brazil. If it exceeds the past record’s length, there will be a new record holder and the information is entered into the Guinness World Records database. A certificate will also be issued,” she added.

The event was held in conjunction with the Millennium Development Goals Awareness Campaign, co-hosted by JCI Malaysia and JCI Mandarin Sibu, and sponsored by Kolej Laila Taib (KLT) and saw hundreds of young people from schools, NGOs, and others painting their way into the Guinness World Records – Longest Graffiti Scroll – as early as 7am yesterday

“This marks a new era for Sibu as 500 youths create history, coming up with a 1.6km long graffiti to achieve a new World Guinness Record for the longest graffiti scroll.

“This is indeed a significant occasion for the people of Sibu as we show the world that Sibu ‘boleh’ and our young people ‘boleh’.

“With this achievement the world will come to know about Sibu and how dynamic its young people are,” Tiong said at the opening ceremony held at an open space next to KLT.

“Let this be the start of more good things to come and we hope others will follow suit to break more records to make Sibu better known to the world community.”

He praised the youths for their courage in taking up such challenge and elevating the town image.

The current record was set in Mar 7 this year in Brazil where 246 people painted a 1.4km-long graffiti, breaking an earlier record set in Mexico.

The usually quiet open space near KLT was turned into a hive of human activities, filled with laughter  as people from all walks of life sprayed their dreams on to the 1.6km-long canvas that snaked around the grounds.

It was a sight indeed to see design and creativity begin to manifests itself on the canvas, measuring 1.5 meter in height.
