Guinness World Records 2013: Latest Guinness World Records book released

Guinness World Records 2013: latest Guinness World Records book released

From a tiny bull and giant biceps to a slam-dunking parrot and 340-piece drum kit, the latest Guinness World Records book is full of surprises.

This year’s Guinness Book of Records was released today.

The new entries are an intriguing bunch, and include Mostafa ‘Mo’ Ismail, whose biceps, at 31 inches, are as bigger than some waistlines.

Archie, the world’s shortest bull, is just 30 inches high, but “he still thinks that he’s the biggest cow in the herd.” He made a lucky escape, however. If it weren’t for his miniature stature, he’d have been sent to slaughter for beef.

Other record holders are Zac, a parrot who has completed the highest number of slam-dunks in a minute, and Dr Mark Temperaton, owner of the world’s largest drum kit.

Jyoti Amge, 18, from Nagpur, India, takes the title of world’s smallest woman. She stands at just 24.7 inches, and weighs less than a stone.

Golconda diamond - Most Expensive Diamonds sold at auction in Geneva

Golconda diamond - Most Expensive Diamonds sold at auction in Geneva

The flawless 'Archduke Joseph" diamond, from India's famous Golconda mines, broke several world records when it was sold at auction in Geneva late Tuesday for $21.47 million (16.9 million euros).

The price which the 76 carat jewel fetched at the Christie's sale is a record for the auction of a clear, colourless diamond. It is also the highest auction price per carat for such a gem and the record for a Golconda diamond, the same mines which produced the Koh-i-Noor which adorns the British Queen's crown.

"It's a cushion-shaped diamond, weighing 76.02 carats, of D colour" the purest, most colourless variety of diamond, a rarity and a speciality of the ancient Golconda mines in the Indian state of Andhra Paradesh, said Christie's jewelery expert Jean-Marc Lunel.

The 'Archduke |Joseph,' which was bought by an anonymous bidder, once belonged to the Habsburgs, former rulers of the Austrian empire. It takes its name from the Archduke Joseph (1872-1962) who was for a short period the Hungarian head of state.

The diamond was sold in 1936 to a still-anonymous buyer and, hidden in a safe, escaped the attentions of the Nazis during the Second World War. It reappeared on the international scene at a sale in London in 1961.

In the 1990s it was sold again, in Geneva, for $6.5 million.

Christmas World Records attempt to get churches caroling

Christmas World Records attempt to get churches caroling

Churches are being invited to take part once again in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest number of Christmas carol singers singing together at the same time.

Premier Christian Radio is organising the attempt to smash the record set last year by 18,114 singers in multiple locations. Last year's effort was enough to beat the previous record of 14,100 held by Disney.

Now Premier want to go even further and are looking for more than 300 churches to take part.

Plans for this year's attempt were unveiled as a new survey revealed that less than a quarter (22%) of the nation plan to attend a church carol service this year.

The poll, carried out by ComRes, found that among churchgoers, 61% said they were likely to attend a carol service.

Premier hopes the world record attempt will help congregations swell this Christmas.

“Last year’s record-breaking attempt brought large congregations into churches, many of whom were not regular visitors,” says Peter Kerridge, chief executive of Premier Christian Radio.

“This year’s new attempt on the world record will undoubtedly provide an opportunity for churches to swell their congregations and help to reverse the survey statistics.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for churches to reach out to their local community and share the gospel of Jesus Christ at Christmas."

The world record attempt takes place this year at 7pm on 16 December, when carollers will sing five selected carols.

They are Silent Night, O Come All Ye Faithful, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Away in a Manger, and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.

Premier will play the carols on the radio, enabling churches to use the broadcast as their backing music and assisting nationwide unison for the event.

“After last year’s event, we received a broad spectrum of positive reports from churches telling us about unexpectedly large attendances and what an enjoyable evening it had been for all concerned,” said Mr Kerridge.

“Our little church was full to overflowing,” said one carol coordinator.

“It was a really good evening that connected the community with Christ and Christmas,” was the message from another church.

The gardener, of Bakewell, Palmerston, said: "I'm over the moon. I just couldn't believe it."

A Northern Territory gardener has been officially listed as producing the world's largest pineapple. Christine McCallum, 61, made headlines last November after growing an 8.28kg pineapple that had a girth of 66cm and a length of 32cm.

Ms McCallum, who lives in the Darwin satellite city of Palmerston, told the NT News that she had been named in the 2013 Guinness World Records, an accomplishment that impressed her grandson. "He was jumping up and down and hugging me saying `you're so cool, you're famous'," the paper reported.

Prior to Ms McCallum's efforts, the world's largest pineapple was an 8.06kg fruit grown in Papua New Guinea.
