Rafflesia arnoldii is a member of the genus Rafflesia. It is noted for producing the largest individual flower on earth, and a strong odor of decaying flesh – the latter point earning it the nickname of “corpse flower”. It occurs only in the rainforests of Sumatra and Borneo in the Indonesian Archipelago. Although there are some plants with larger flowering organs like the Titan Arum and Talipot palm, those are technically clusters of many flowers.

Several species of Rafflesia grow in the jungles of southeast Asia, including the Philippines. Many of them are threatened or endangered. The flower of Rafflesia arnoldii is the largest which attains a diameter of nearly one meter (3 ft) and can weigh up to 11 kilograms (24 lb).

It lives as a parasite on the Tetrastigma vine, which grows only in primary (undisturbed) rainforests. Rafflesia lacks any observable leaves, stems or even roots, yet is still considered a vascular plant. Similar to fungi, individuals grow as thread-like strands of tissue completely embedded within and in intimate contact with surrounding host cells from which nutrients and water are obtained.

Perhaps the only part of Rafflesia that is identifiable as distinctly plant-like are the flowers; although, even these are unusual since they attain massive proportions, have a reddish-brown coloration and stink of rotting flesh, which is why it was nicknamed the “corpse flower”. This scent attracts insects such as flies which then pollinate the rare plant. It is not to be confused with the Titan Arum, Amorphophallus titanum, which is also commonly referred to as the “corpse flower”.

Rafflesia arnoldii is rare and fairly hard to locate. It is especially difficult to locate the flower in forests as the buds take many months to develop and the flower lasts for just a few days.

 The flowers are unisexual and thus proximity of male and female flowers is vital for successful pollination. These factors make successful pollination a rare event.

Biggest art class in the world - World's Biggest art class Guinness World Record

Biggest art class in the world - World's Biggest art class Guinness World Record

Mouth and foot painting artist Katrina Gardner, leading yesterdays attempt on the world record for the biggest art class at The Bonus Arena in Hull , despite having too few participants, the event certainly caught the imagination of many youngsters, several of whom also made the most of the opportunity during the school holidays to try to paint with their feet.

Hundreds of children and their families crowded into the Bonus Arena in Hull yesterday to try and take the Guinness Book of Records title for the biggest art class in the world.

But despite organisers’ efforts, the final tally fell more than 100 short of the current record of 809 people, who were taught by artist Martin Thomas at the Modell, Hobby, Spiel trade show in Leipzig, Germany on September 30 2006.

The event was led by Katrina Gardner, an artist who paints with her feet.

Katrina was one of 10,000 babies born with malformed limbs between 1958 and 1961 as a result of their mothers taking Thalidomide while pregnant.

Her interest in painting began at an art class in the village of Sproatley, near Hull, where she lives and she eventually became a member of the Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists, a group of disabled artists who use their mouths or feet to create original works of art.

Yesterday Katrina, armed only with a microphone, fought to make herself heard above the general hubbub to teach hundreds of schoolchildren and their parents a lesson based on the rules of perspective.

Paper and pencils were provided – but no paint – as they concentrated over their drawings, some trying to copy Katrina’s dextrous use of her feet.

Katrina, who was one of a team of artists to join Rolf Harris in painting a giant replica of Constable’s The Hay Wain in Trafalgar Square in 2004, said: “It was great, I really enjoyed it.

Mr Lamb, whose idea it was, said: “I think a World Record was always going to be a hard push but to get this amount of people going into a hall on a hot, sunny day is pretty good going.

“We had 3,000-plus people through the door and I think if there’d been a cloudburst at 2pm we’d have been laughing, but there were that many people enjoying the facilities outside that it stopped people coming back in,” he added..

“But the event was a fantastic success. The day is about community cohesion, schools working together and supporting each other and allowing families to do something that they can enjoy as families.”

The Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists was founded in Liechtenstein in 1956.

Prominent members include Alison Lapper, whose pregnant sculpture appeared on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square in 2005.

Lapper has a congenital disorder, phocomelia, which caused her to be born without arms and with truncated legs.

The AMFPA represents 800 mouth and foot painting artists in 70 countries around the world.

They receive grants or are taken on as members and receive a regular income for their artistic proficiency. Katrina is currently a student.

Work produced by its artists can be seen in the UN Headquarters in Geneva or the European Council in Strasbourg.

There are believed to be around 3,500 people currently living with the effects of Thalidomide. Of those survivors, many have had to endure discrimination and prejudice.

They have had to fight for paltry compensation from the German drug company which manufactured Thalidomide.

Jiroemon Kimura - World's newest oldest man set Guinness World Record 2011

The new oldest living man is turning 114 years old today. Jiroemon Kimura from Kyoto, Japan has been named by the Guinness World Records organization as the new ‘Oldest Living Man’. The previous record holder was Walter Breuning from the US, who passed away on April 14, 2011 at the age of 114.

Kimura was born on April 19, 1897 and is the third oldest person living in Japan. The other two are women; Chiyono Hasegawa was born on November 20, 1896 and Shige Hirooka was born on January 16, 1897.

Kimura also is the only known man to be alive that was born before 1900. He is also on the Guinness World Records list for the top 10 list of oldest people; he ranks sixth.

Kimura said that he attributes his longevity to eating meals that are small in portion size. He also said that he likes to read the newspaper, but he uses a magnifying glass in order to read it.

The US has not lost out to having a record of longevity. The Guinness World Records for the ‘Oldest Living Person’ goes to Besse Berry Brown who was born on August 26, 1896 and is from the US.
