World's Largest Bikini Photo Shoot Guinness World Record

HUNDREDS of women bared virtually all in the cold and rain to raise money and awareness for charity at the weekend – but they failed to set a Guinness world record for the largest massed bikini photo shoot.

Although more than 900 women showed up at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium on Saturday to participate in the Nashua Largest Ever Bikini Photo Shoot in aid of the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa), they fell far short of the target to break the record.

Event organisers had hoped to get more than 1923 participants in order to better the record set in Russia in 2008, at Riviera Central Beach in Sochi.

Women who attended the event in Russia, broke the previous record of 1010 women in Sydney in 2007 at Bondi Beach.

Nelson Mandela Bay’s Pam Regnart was one of many women who expressed their disappointment with people who registered for the event and paid their R50 donation fee, but did not show up due to the cold and overcast weather.

Those taking part on Saturday nonetheless showed that their hearts were in the right place, not only by attending the event but by forming a giant heart on the field of the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

In the process, the 905 participants broke two other world records for the largest bikini and swimwear parades.

For many women the event was a deeply personal cause.

Venita Jacobs stood out in the crowd because she completed the Cansa walk on crutches.

“My sister-in-law’s niece, who is 11 years old, has just been diagnosed with leukaemia. We did the mile for Jade.”

Event organiser Laurence Finn, of Club 100 for Ladies, said organisers were pleased that participants managed to smash the two other world records.

The previous record for a bikini parade was 331 participants, while the swimwear parade featured 385 women.

All proceeds raised will benefit Cansa.

World Oldest Student World Record set by Freedom Fighter Bholaram Das

A teacher, a lawyer, a judge and now back to being a student - 100-year-old Bholaram Das has just enrolled for his doctorate, perhaps becoming India's oldest university student .

Das has got admission in a PhD programme at the Gauhati University in Assam - an announcement he made at a public function organised by his family and friends to mark his 100th birthday Saturday.

"There is no age limit for acquiring knowledge," Das said with a smile, dressed nattily in a brown suit and tie.

And the subject for his doctorate is as interesting as the man himself -- the role of his native village Bohori in Barpeta district in western Assam in the spread of neo-Vaishnavite movement, an egalitarian stream of Hinduism, propagated by Sankardeva.

Das was jailed when he was just 19 during the freedom movement against British rule. He spent two months in prison before he graduated in the commerce stream and later went to study law.

"I had a very fulfilling 100 years, having been a teacher, dabbled with politics by joining the Congress party way back in 1945, became a lawyer, then a magistrate, and retired as a judge in 1971," Das said.

The centenarian's zeal to get a PhD degree has stunned many.

"It is indeed heartening to find people like Bholaram Das in today's world and I am of the firm belief that he should stand out as a role model for the generation next," Governor J.B. Patnaik, who is also the chancellor of Gauhati University, told IANS.

"A 100-year-old student is indeed a rarity anywhere in the world," said Gauhati University Vice Chancellor Okhil Kumar Medhi.

Aided by a walking stick, Das is still agile and loves watching cricket matches on television, besides being an avid reader.

With five sons and a daughter, 10 grandchildren, and a great-grandchild, Das is a contented man.

"I love to smile and be happy always," Das said as he slipped into his study.

World’s Fastest Scooter Aims for Guinness Book of World Records

The mobility scooters out there are fairly cool in their own right. What would create them better, though, is if they could go faster. For one Colin Furze, a British pipe fitter, he must have had the same idea, because he determined to build the world's fastest motor scooter "for a jest." The outcome has star to unbelievable speeds for a scooter, and forthwith a shot at the Guinness Book of World Records.

Whin decided on the 125cc gas engine from a motorcycle, and retrofitted it onto the scoter. And, as ordinarily falls out, after someone attains one end, they travel justly onto the next one. Whin is no different, as he's sounded out that his next step is to take the scooter to a drag strip and trial its velocity there. He is aspiring for 70mph. The folks at the Guinness Book of World Records has told Irish gorse that if he deals to reach a velocity of 62mph, he'd be gayly accepted into the record. We 're sure that we'll be finding out about Irish gorse again in the nigh future -- let's hope he starts donning a helmet, going at those speeds on a standard scooter. And if it ends up not working out for him, he could always take his motor scooter.

Rangoli Guinness and Limca World Record by Mohankumar Dodecha

Dodecha begins work on a Ganpati rangoli made from sabudana (sago) at Mulund, a month before the city brings Lord Ganesh home.

This time, Mohankumar made it to both the Limca Book of Records and Guinness Book of World Records for making the sabudana rangoli every year for 50 years.
“He was just 17 when he began this with his friends Dayaram Hindisota and Bhupender Joshi in 1961. They are still by his side; his passion has not dwindled,” said Meghjibhai, Dodecha’s elder brother.
Surrounded by 60 kg of sabudana coloured in different shades, Dodecha recalled the time he began in a small room that he shared with his parents. “We had to shift to the terrace when I would start, but my parents were always supportive. Today, when I see my grandchildren fascinated by it, it is immensely satisfying,” said Dodecha, who worked every day for 11 hours for the past month to complete his work in time for Ekadashi, which is on September 20.
Dodecha is marking the golden jubilee of the effort with a Siddhivinayak rangoli. It will measure 12 feet by 7 feet and will require approximately 12 lakh sabudana grains. He will use 250 to 300 colours.
Yet, for Dodecha, the quest for perfection has not ended. “I always think something or the other is missing. I will continue till I am satisfied,” he said.

Ugliest Woman Face - Gurning Guinness World Record to Be Set By Anne Woods

Anne Woods, Record-breaking gurner could soon be in the Guinness Book of World Records for the number of times she has been crowned the ‘ugliest’ woman.

Resident of Egremont, Anne Woods is Sixty-two-year-old, who has won the ladies world gurning championships on 27 occasions and her daughter applied for her mom’s achievement to be included in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Brenda Hoey has said that her mom is unaware about the application, but she deserves the fame.

She started gurning when she was 30 years old, but had no wish to get into worldwide competition, which is being held every year during Egremont Crab Fair.

Brenda stated that Her brothers Brian and Robert (who were 11 and eight at the time) entered her for a laugh and she just went up on stage and did it – and she won!, in 1977 and 33 years later Anne is still pulling her well-known face that has gained her top marks from the judging panel 27 times, for other 5 times she was failed to hold top spot and had 2nd place.

In spite of collapse after Anne, gurned on the stage, which resulting in her being rushed to hospital, Brenda said that her mom would keep on take part in the competition for as long as she was fit. “I think this year gave her a bit of a shock, but she’s known for gurning and that’s what she’ll do” Brenda added.

Steven Woods, 21-year-old nephew of Anne stayed behind to pick up her winning trophy when Anne was taken to hospital.

Due to pregnancy Anne has missed prestigious competition once. She was back on board next year to add one more Gem to crown of success, it was the time when Brenda was only of two weeks old. She has even got a theme tune that she has ‘performed’ to for the past few years – Anne’s gurn is pulled to the hit You’re Gorgeous.

She will be beside man Cumbrian Tommy Mattinson, who is world champion gurner 11 times, incase Anne does feature in the Guinness Book of World Records.

World's Largest Mac & Cheese Guinness World Record event was organized for raising money for New Orleans Area Habitat For Humanity (NOAHH) while supporting the critical work of The Magnolia School and Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans. In the last six months Cabot has helped raise more than $21,000 for the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity, including this and other activities.

Senior Vice President of Marketing for Cabot Creamery Cooperative, Roberta MacDonald said, "We chose to partner with New Orleans nonprofits to celebrate all of the powerful work these organizations have contributed to the city”. "We hope our involvement will assist these organizations in their future efforts towards positive change." He added.

Over 2,000 people were gathered to attend the event which held at Harrah's Fulton Square in downtown New Orleans from 12 Noon to 2 p.m. Colorfully painted ceramic bowls good for "all you can eat" servings of the Mac & Cheese were given to guests who donated $5 or more. All 1,500 of the hand-made bowls created by participants of The Magnolia School, a nonprofit organization based just outside New Orleans that provides assistance to adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities, sold out in less than two hours.

213 year-old cast iron sugar kettle was used to cook, which had to be gently lifted into the air by forklift to determine its record setting weight - not an easy feat considering the age and fragility of the circa 1797 kettle.

Parekh has yet again entered the prestigious Limca Book of Records India for a 3rd National Record. The Limca Book of Records, which is ranked only 2nd to Guinness Book of World Records will now list Nikhil Parekh as record holder for being ‘The 1st Indian to be published in the Commonwealth Newsletter for his poem on AIDS ‘. An email from the Senior Editor of Limca book of Records confirmed his entry into the 2008 edition of the prestigious book which chronicles some of the most spectacular records from amongst a billion Indians.

Parekh’s record breaking spree started in 2005 when he entered the Limca Book for the record of ‘Writing most number of letters to and receiving the most number of replies from World Leaders and World Organizations’. In yr 2006 he was once again published in the book for a record of ‘Being India’s 1st and Only winner of the EPPIE award for best poetry ebook in the history of the EPPIE Awards’.

Rangoli Guinness and Limca World Record by Mohankumar Dodecha

66 Years old, Mohankumar Dodecha pays a unique tribute to the city’s most loved deity, for the past 50 years, every Ganesh Chaturthi. Dodecha begins work on a Ganpati rangoli made from sabudana (sago) at Mulund, a month before the city brings Lord Ganesh home. Months before the festival, the image to be drawn is finalised and the sabudana coloured. Dodecha and his friends then start on the sprawling rangoli.

This time, Mohankumar made it to both the Limca Book of Records and Guinness Book of World Records for making the sabudana rangoli every year for 50 years.

“He was just 17 when he began this with his friends Dayaram Hindisota and Bhupender Joshi in 1961. They are still by his side; his passion has not dwindled,” said Meghjibhai, Dodecha’s elder brother.

Surrounded by 60 kg of sabudana coloured in different shades, Dodecha recalled the time he began in a small room that he shared with his parents. “We had to shift to the terrace when I would start, but my parents were always supportive. Today, when I see my grandchildren fascinated by it, it is immensely satisfying,” said Dodecha, who worked every day for 11 hours for the past month to complete his work in time for Ekadashi, which is on September 20.

Dodecha is marking the golden jubilee of the effort with a Siddhivinayak rangoli. It will measure 12 feet by 7 feet and will require approximately 12 lakh sabudana grains. He will use 250 to 300 colours.

Yet, for Dodecha, the quest for perfection has not ended. “I always think something or the other is missing. I will continue till I am satisfied,” he said.

Plainfield residents attempt to break world record for largest gospel choir

PLAINFIELD - They didn’t make the record books yesterday, but it was still a harmonious, happy day in Plainfield.

Residents of the Queen City who gathered yesterday at City Hall to try and break the Guinness World Record for the largest gospel choir were unsuccessful, but the day was still touted as a positive step toward peace in this community, which has been rocked by more than 20 violent crimes since May raised.

Yesterday’s event drew 755 singers, about 250 people shy of the record. To help drum up interest in the event – held on the International Day of Non Violence – organizers invited Grammy Award Winning Gospel songstress Yolana Adams and American Idol season four contestant Anwar Robinson, a former Plainfield music instructor.

"We didn’t break the record, but that doesn’t mean we were not successful," said Donovan Soumas, founder of H.E.R.I.T.A.G.E Inc and the event’s organizer. "The people here today understood that we have to come together for positive change and peace in this community."

H.E.R.I.T.A.G.E Inc. is probably most famous for its youth choir, whose members are three-time champions of the McDonalds Gospelfest. Dressed in black suits and white collared shirts, the choir led participants in a spirited rendition of "Oh Happy Day" from the movie Sister Act II. Participants at yesterday’s event also enjoyed vendors selling southern cuisine like chicken wings, macaroni-and-cheese, collard greens and pie.

Plainfield Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs said this event is one in a series she has held and will continue to organize to quell gun and gang violence in her city. Every Tuesday evening, Robinson-Briggs and a group of volunteers hit the streets of Plainfield to raise awareness about community safety. She passes out literature on the penalties for illegal weapons possession, and she encourages parents to set curfews for their children.
"This summer, residents were still grieving, but now it’s time to heal our community," Robinson-Briggs said.

Guiness World Records adjudicator Mike Ganela judged yesterday’s event and certified the results. Though Plainfield was not successful, Ganela said failed efforts are not uncommon. Just three percent of the more than 60,000 applicants Guinness receives each year become record-holders, Ganela said.

For its application to receive approval, Plainfield had to meet strict guidelines. Organizers needed approval from Guiness music researchers that their song selection qualified as Gospel music. The song needed to at least five minutes long, and all participants needed to be singing for Guiness to include them in the count. Finally, the massive choir needed a qualified conductor, which they got in Soumas. Ganela did the count visually.

"People attended today’s event to do something to bring this community together for peace," Spoumas said. "We are showing not only New Jersey, or Union County, or Plainfield, but the whole country we can do wondeful things and change people’s mindsets about Plainfield."

Plainfield resident Eddie Saunders said he came out to break the record because he wanted to help makr history.

"We love our community. We should go back to doing these kids of things every year," Saunders said. "This shows the children that we still love them and shows the parents that we still have the skills to uplift them, because the adults need support, too."

Elizabeth Hurley creates world record

Actress Elizabeth Hurley
has made it to the Guinness World Records after lighting 39 iconic world landmarks as part of a new Estee Lauder breast cancer awareness initiative.

Hurley has been the cosmetics company's celebrity breast cancer champion for the past 15 years and for 24 hours across Thursday and Friday she helped turn monuments around the globe pink. She was in New York to flick the switch on the Empire State Building's lights, and other landmarks to be turned pink included the Sydney Opera House in Australia and the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel in Mumbai.

A total of 39 buildings were lit up - enough to gain the Guinness World Record for Most Landmarks Illuminated for a Cause in 24 Hours. And Hurley is delighted with the accolade and awareness drive.

The model along with Evelyn Lauder of Estee Lauder, which Hurley endorses, were presented with an official certificate at the Empire State Building in New York Friday in recognition of Most Landmarks Illuminated for a Cause in 24 Hours.

"It's wonderful to see the global impact that these illuminated landmarks have, motivating women to see their doctors regularly, perform a monthly breast self exam, and get an annual mammogram if they're over the age of 40. Our goal is to spread this message to women in all corners of the world," quoted Hurley as saying.

The effort began in Australia, with the illumination of Federation Square in Melbourne and the National Library of Australia in Canberra, before around the world to places including the Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai, Burj al Arab in Dubai, Lentos Museum in Austria, Mexico's Angel de la Independencia and Tokyo Tower in Japan, culminating with the Empire State Building.
