World's most wanted terrorist Osama bin Laden killed in Pakistan.

Osama bin Laden, the elusive mastermind behind the devastating September 11, 2001, terror attacks that led the United States into war in Afghanistan and later Iraq, was killed in a firefight, President Barack Obama said Sunday.

Bin Laden's death at a compound in Pakistan ended the world's most widely-watched manhunt, and jubilant crowds gathered outside the White House and at ground zero in New York as word spread late at night.

“Justice has been done,'' the President said.

The US State Department also put a worldwide alert shortly after President Barack Obama announced bin Laden's death in a military operation.

Obama said a small team of Americans killed bin Laden early Sunday in the town of Abbottabat, about 100 kilometres (62 miles) north of the capital Islamabad, U.S., Pakistani officials said. The team took custody of his remains and American officials said they were being handled in accordance with Islamic tradition.

Three adult males were also killed in Sunday's raid, including one of bin Laden's sons, whom officials did not name. One of bin Laden's sons, Hamza, is a senior member of al-Qaeda.

The death of the worlds's most-wanted man came just months before the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centers and Pentagon, orchestrated by bin Laden's al-Qaeda organization, that killed more than 3,000 people.

Former President George W. Bush, who was in office on the day of the attacks, issued a written statement hailing bin Laden's death as a momentous achievement.

“The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done,'' Bush said.

Largest number of airhostesses placements by Frankfinn enter in Limca Book of World Records

Largest number of airhostesses placements by Frankfinn enter in Limca Book of World Records

For long, the unquestioned rule for students in Kerala has been to try to get into a professional college and become a doctor or engineer.

But the trend is, mercifully, changing. Youngsters in Kerala are all set to fly high and accomplish their dreams, if the numbers trotted out by the Frankfinn Institute of Air Hostess Training are to be believed.

The institute which boasts of an entry in the Limca Book of World Records for getting placements for the largest number of airhostesses, has found jobs for 665 students in the last financial year from Kerala alone, said Ajith Prasad, the regional head of the institute, at a press conference held in the city. “The highest salary which was offered to one of our students last year was Rs.15 lakh per annum,” he said.

It seems as though Kerala’s youth are now more open to New Age careers rather than stereotypical jobs. With so many girls aspiring to reach for the skies, it looks like the narrow path of offbeat career options has finally opened up.

Though we may have the picture of a highly sophisticated young woman in mind when we think of an airhostess, one doesn’t need an excellent academic record or speak Queen’s English to be trained as an airhostess, claim experts.

After the one-year training period — the selection criteria for which would include a minimum height and complexion analysis — all the sophistication and smartness would become one’s second nature, is what the institute promises.

Students who have finished their plus two can apply for diploma courses in airhostess training. PG diploma options are also available for those interested in joining the training after completing their degree.

Howard Berg - World's fastest reader

World's fastest reader , 2011 World's fastest reader, fastest reader in the world, Howard Berg photo, Howard Berg picture, Howard Berg fastest reader record, fastest reader Guinness world record,
Bookshelves and desk lamps brought serenity to Howard Berg. Not much else could growing up in the Brooklyn projects.

"I found the safest place in the neighborhood was the library," he said. "To this day, I don't think anyone's ever felt threatened by gangs in a library."

Gangs of bookworms, however, might feel intimidated by Berg's uncanny ability to peruse a book. The McKinney resident is the world's fastest reader.

He is listed in the 1990 Guinness Book of World Records for reading more than 25,000 words a minute. The average person reads 200 words a minute.

Berg's learning ability is also anything but average, and has been since his early days in New York.

"I made some good choices," he said. "I read at a college level in the sixth grade because I basically hung out in the library. It was the only place to play. I was surrounded by a lot of high-level books so I was reading at a pretty high level early."

By high level, he means analyzing the relativity theory at age 9. He means processing 3,000 words a minute by the time he got to college at the State University of New York, Binghamton.

Coincidentally, Berg gained an interest in college in the brain and how it works. He switched his major during his junior year from biology to psycho-biology, eager to learn the physiology of the nervous system and the brain's role in learning.

Berg completed a four-year psychology program in one year, a feat not even the school dean said was possible. Reading, analyzing and test-acing his doubters down, Berg had a revelation.

"It hit me that they don't teach you how to learn in school," he said. "They tell you what to learn and why to learn. They don't explain why you can remember the words to, 'I Shot the Sheriff,' or why you'd even want to.

"But when you read something you actually want to know, the next day you don't know who wrote the book and who was in it. So, I started learning about learning."

Berg moved to McKinney 14 years ago. He first came to the area when he appeared on "Good Morning Texas" as part of a national tour focused on his rare mental abilities.

New York --- his home --- had not appreciated, or perhaps understood those abilities. Berg worked in the city for 10 years, set on spreading his knowledge to kids who suffered through a push-them-along education system, that is, to those kids who even stayed in the system.

One school had a 2 percent graduation rate. The rest of the students either flunked or dropped out of the system. Berg volunteered to teach what he knew to the students who did stay in school, but the principal wouldn't have it.

"Kids in biology couldn't do the homework because they didn't know how to find the answers, so I was teaching them how using their bio book in their bio class," he said. "The principal said they weren't paying me to do that and wrote down that I wasn't doing my job because I was teaching kids how to do their homework and how to learn."

Berg said he couldn't help those unwilling to be helped.

"So I quit my job as a teacher to become an educator," he said. "I wasn't going to spend my life making kids dumber."

Berg has stayed true to his promise since the 1980s, when he began educating anyone who would listen. School and business success depended on their listening, he said.

"There's more printed in one week in the New York Times than a person in the 18th century learned their whole life," he said. "When you're trying to do well in school, you need to read faster than two hundred words a minute."

Berg had taken graduate courses in how to teach reading, and more importantly, he figured out what he did to reach insane speed reading milestones.

"I observed myself reading," he said. "I took a part of my mind that wasn't reading, and I observed myself, asking what I was doing now that's different than what someone else would be doing while reading this."

Some might find that a daunting task, but Berg came to a fairly simple, yet complex conclusion. He compared reading to cruising down a North Texas highway. Drivers read the road in four directions --- front, back, left and right --- while eyeing the speedometer and gas gauge, switching the radio and playing Words With Friends on their iPhone. Berg said their brains should explode, but multitasking comes easier.

People read a book 200 words a minute in one direction and barely remember what they read an hour later. Berg realized the disconnect.

"In a car, we see everything," he said. "In a book, it appears there's a little person in the back of our heads looking at a book through our eyes, and this little person reads one word at a time aloud. So, we're using our eyes to hear a book instead of to see a book."

Seeing the words as a visual process, instead of an auditory one. So knowing what to look for during that process, particularly when studying a textbook, will increase one's reading speed, Berg said.

"If you want to hit a target, you have to know what you're aiming at," Berg said. "Most people are clueless when they're given a book. They need to stop reading and start analyzing."

Teaching people how to analyze, and do it quickly, became Berg's mission. He organized his methods into a system, a program that even the youngest kids could use.

One student who used the program finished a four-year degree at Thomas Edison in six months. Another graduated with a 4.0 grade point average in economics from the University of Texas-Arlington. He was only 16.

"He taught math as a graduate student when he was 18," Berg said. "His biggest challenge was that he couldn't date students who were younger."

Berg's 9-year-old grandchild took his program and can read 750 words a minute.

Of course, others took notice, many doubting his seemingly unreal speed-reading madness. Dr. Kuni Beasley, founder of the former NEW American School and Gateway Preparatory School, saw about an infomercial about Berg's mega speed reading product. A speed reader himself, Beasley didn't believe Berg's claims.

Cycling world record 2011 set by Hitchin teachers

Cycling world record 2011 set by Hitchin teacher.

TWO teachers from a Hitchin school have returned to England with a world record under their belts after completing a charity cycle ride in memory of a former student who died from leukaemia.

Matthew Good and Chris Pope, teachers at Priory School, cycled nine countries in one week with friends Darren Daley and Szilvia Zsigmond.

Their aim was to raise money for CHILDREN with LEUKAEMIA, in memory of former pupil Tasnim Kalam.

The quartet, who far surpassed their target of cycling the 584 mile course in nine days, also smashed the previous record of cycling seven countries in as many days.

They are currently awaiting formal confirmation from Guinness World Records after sending off evidence of their feat.

“It went really well, a lot better than we thought it would actually,” Mr Good told The Comet.

“We were cycling 85 to 90 miles a day, more than we thought we would be. We got to the eighth country after six days.

“We didn’t get one puncture at all throughout the whole journey and the weather was good apart from on one morning. It all went very smoothly.”

The group began the gruelling route in Italy, and finished in The Netherlands.

Their journey took them through all European countries including Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

Cuban eyes world record with 268-foot cigar.

Havana—Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. But one Cuban man is hoping that a 268-foot (81.8-meter) super-stogie he rolled is something more: a world record.

Jose Castelar and his assistants started working on it at the end of April and finished Tuesday.

British diplomats were on hand to measure the cigar. It has yet to be verified by Guinness World Records.

Castelar already holds the Guinness mark for a 148-foot (45-meter) cigar he rolled in 2008.
