Britain's Youngest Grandfather Sets World Record At 29

Britain's Youngest Grandfather - World Record? Britain's youngest and probably only grandfather at the age 29 sets new world record. His 14-year-old daughter has become pregnant.

"It's history repeating itself. I like the idea of being the youngest grandad in Britain, but at the same time I'm fuming that she (daughter) is pregnant. I know myself how tough it is being a teenage parent and now she has to go through the same thing. However, we're all going to stand by her and we will welcome the little one into the family. She is very young, but she was determined to keep the child."

"We're not going to force her into doing anything else. We don't want her to hate us," the Daily Mail quoted the grandfather. He won't reveal and is protecting the identity of his young daughter. The man's daughter became pregnant by her 15-year-old boyfriend.

The daughter is expected to give birth in August. The couple study at the same middle school. In 2006, Tressa Middleton, from West Lothian, became Britain's youngest mother after becoming pregnant aged 11.

World’s Oldest Yoga Teacher World Record set by Gladys Morris

An 89-year-old great grandmother is hoping to hit the record books as the world’s oldest yoga teacher.

Gladys Morris has been practising the ancient exercise for almost five decades and credits it as the secret to her great health.

Although she retired 30 years ago the flexible pensioner is still going strong teaching Hatha yoga four times a week.

The Heyside resident said: "It all started when my daughter-in-law asked me to go to yoga with her.

"I only went for a bit of moral support but I was instantly hooked."

And when the instructor moved away Gladys took over the reins – and has been doing it ever since.

Gladys, who celebrates her 90th birthday on Monday, said: "I teach three days a week and my Thursday evening class got so busy that I had to split it into two sessions."

Even on her days off she still dedicates herself to her hobby.

"I do a few exercises every single day," said Gladys, a former senior secretary for Oldham probation office.

"I was diagnosed with osteoporosis four years ago and the doctors said it was my muscles not my bones which were holding me together.

"I’ve got no plans to give up because it’s what keeps me on my feet. I would recommend yoga to everyone."

Gladys’s pupils are now hoping to enter her into the Guinness world record books after discovering the current world record holder is a mere 83.

Linda Grime, who attends one of Glady’s classes at Shaw Lifelong Learning Centre, said: "I have been going for over 15 years and really love it.

"The record holder is Bette Claman who teaches in Australia and we’re confident Gladys should hold the title. She’s a real inspiration."

Gladys, whose husband Jim died 12 years ago, is mum to Sheila and Alan, and says her family are incredibly proud.

She said: "I’ve also got three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren and they all think it’s brilliant.

"I’m not as good as I used to be, my balance is gone and I’ve always struggled to sit cross-legged.

"But as long as I am a good teacher that’s all that matters."

At.mosphere - World's Highest Restaurants on Burj Khalifa set World Record

At.mosphere, on the 122nd floor, is one private elevator ride up the glass and chrome Burj Khalifa.

Its designers say that At.mosphere, touted as the world's highest restaurant, shows that Dubai may have lost its lustre as a business hub after the financial crisis, but for those seeking the lifestyle of the rich and famous, it can still dish it out.

"Up here, you feel elegant and luxurious, you feel sexy," said the restaurant's designer, Adam Tihany, pointing to the mahogany-panelled rooms and cosy leather booths.

"You are floating ... it's a journey. This is your luxury yacht in the sky," he said.

At.mosphere is a 57-second elevator ride up 442 metres (1,350 feet) that makes ears pop. Dwayne Cheer, the executive chef, tries to limit the number of times he goes up each day.

"I came up yesterday five times and after five times, you feel a bit dizzy. You only want to come up twice."

Cheer recommends the house specialties of foie gras or the beef tartare--but prices here may burn the pocket books of all but Dubai's most well-heeled denizens.


Entrees at the contemporary grille, serving up what Emaar Hospitality's chief executive calls "eclectic, European cuisine", cost an average of 340 dirhams. Appetizers will set you back another $50 each.

At.mosphere's views at noon show ritzy Dubai's past and present: its ambitious artificial island project, The World, lies unfinished amid the blue waves on one side, and the sandy expanses of stalled construction sites are on the other.

Dubai's six-year boom, which fuelled construction of the world's tallest building and artificial island archipelagos, slammed to a halt in 2008 after the global financial crisis.

Millions of dollars of construction projects were slashed or put on hold and the emirate is struggling to dig out from under a massive debt burden, estimated at more than $100 billion.

Developers at Emaar Hospitality, of Emaar Properties EMAR.DU, say the restaurant opening at these soaring heights is a sign that the low point of Dubai's recession is ending.

"I think really the hospitality business has picked up quite nicely," said Emaar Hospitality chief executive Marc Dardenne. "Dubai is still a very attractive destination, with world class hotels and world class restaurants available."

The restaurant, for which owners declined to reveal the costs, faced some delays when Dubai's economy first stumbled. But it was eventually completed, Tihany said, because construction for Burj Khalifa is already almost finished.

"The top of the crown jewel has to be beautiful," he said. "The economy will follow suit, hopefully."

World's Largest Bee House at Sevenoaks Wildlife set World Record

Guinness World Records has confirmed that the structure created on 17 August 2010 now holds the record.

The house measures 5m (15ft 5in) by 2.37m (7ft 9in) and took just four hours to build.

All the materials used to construct the house were either donated by local businesses or sourced from the trust's own nature reserves.

A local builder made the timber frame, which was filled with stone, bricks, pre-drilled concrete, wooden blocks and plant material.

The house was designed for solitary bees such as the red mason bee

The house was designed specifically to encourage the nesting of solitary bees which are considered to be as important to the food chain as bumblebees and honeybees.

Amanda Hamley managed the bee house project: "This is brilliant news. The house makes a great new visitor attraction for the nature reserve.

"It should also serve to remind people of the plight of bees - with many species in serious decline - and hopefully encourage Kent residents to create simple bee houses for their own gardens."

The trust's Ray Lewis added: "We are really looking forward to seeing the structure come alive when the first bees take up residency and start building their nests this spring."

Most Perfect Games of Wii Sports Bowling Guinness World Record set by John Bates

An 85-year-old man from Onalaska, Wisconsin has landed in the Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer's Edition book for the most perfect games of Wii Sports Bowling.

According to Guinness, John Bates, a retired high school principal who regularly bowls in a league, started playing Wii Sports Bowling at a friend's house at the end of 2008. He then began recording his perfect games in April 2009.

Ambidextrous by nature, Bates started perfecting his bowling scores by using both his right and left hands. By October 2010, he managed to score 2,850 perfect games, earning his Guinness placement.

"John, as the most venerable record-holder in the 2011 Guinness World Records Gamers Edition, we salute you," said Guinness over on the official website. "You are an example to us all, and proof that you don’t need to be a stereotypical gamer to be the best in the world."

Other amazing gaming feats seen in the latest edition include "Longest gaming session in indoor freefall" which lasted 18 minutes 52 seconds at Indoor Skydive, Roosendaal, Netherlands. There's also a listing for the longest video games marathon on a first-person shooter, lasting 33 hours and achieved by Rustler's Gamesafe team in Newbuty, UK.

Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer's Edition went on sale here in the US on January 4, 2011.

Most Brands Advertised on a Single Billboard World Record set by Dubai


With 1,233 logos on a single wall, Dubai has made it to the record books yet again.

The ‘Most brands advertised on a single billboard’ were officially unveiled at Dubai Festival City after being certified as a world record by Guinness World Records, on Sunday.Measuring over 10 metres high and 100 metres wide, the massive billboard is Dubai’s latest entry in the record books.
“Dubai is synonymous with the world’s largest, world’s biggest and the world’s most expensive. This is the 78th world record in the UAE and the country is certainly among some of the top record-breakers in the world,” said Adam Wide, Creative Director, Guinness World Records who presented the official certificate to Discovery Exhibition Organisers.
Working for over a year, a team of 70 staff from Discovery Exhibition Organisers set out to persuade brands to advertise on the billboard and make ‘UAE Logos’ a successful project.  “This record is particularly significant because it’s not just about the number of logos on display but it is about the co-operation between thousands of companies who made the feat possible. The scale is absolutely phenomenal and there are a lot of logistics involved in making such a record possible,” said Wide.
Salim Al Khayyal, CEO, Discovery Exhibiton Organisers attributed the success of ‘UAE Logos’ to his team.
“It took a lot of hard work and persuasion to bring together all the brands and make them part of such a record. There had to be no repetitions and every logo present on the billboard belongs to a brand in the UAE,” said Salim.
A representative from Guinness World Records individually verified each of the 1,233 logos on the billboard as the official verification took over four hours to complete.
The advertising billboard is open for public viewing outside the Festival Centre concert arena.

World's Largest Collection of Milk Bottles World Record set by Paul Luke


A former milkman has been forced to build a museum in his back garden after his home became too small to hold his collection - of more than 10,000 milk bottles.

Dedicated Paul Luke, 33, saved his first milk bottle when he was just nine years old while earning pocket money as a 'milkman's mate'.

But his collection has swelled to more than 10,000 bottles over the years - with some of the rarest dating back to the 1890s.

 Paul's collection grew so large that it wouldn't fit inside his home so he was forced to build a museum in his back garden.

Father-of-one Mr Luke, who edits Milk Bottle News website for fellow fans, admitted that his hobby has 'got a bit out of hand'.

He said: 'My parents liked it that I had a hobby. They thought it kept me out of trouble.

'The ones with a Kelloggs cornflakes advert caught my eye first. I used to pick these ones out when I helped the milk man while I was at school.

'I thought it would be interesting to start collecting the different ones but it started to get a bit out of hand.

'Some of my bottles are the only ones left in existence, to put a price on the collection is difficult but I don't do it for the monetary value, they're a record of history.'

Mr Luke, who lives in Stanford-le-Hope, Essex, with his wife and daughter, collected his first milk bottle in 1987 when he was earning pocket money working as a milkman's mate.

He noticed that different bottles featured various adverts and began a collection on his parent's window sill - before going on to work as a milkman.

Over the years his obsession grew and he was forced to buy a 'miniature museum' in his back garden in order to display them.

Every single one of his prized milk bottles are embossed or pyroglazed by a dairy company and feature an advert.

He now owns a collection of over 10,000 different milk bottles and set world records and is still actively collecting more.

Mr Luke, who now works as a sales rep for a Hertfordshire dairy firm, also owns three old-fashioned milk floats, milk churns and milk measures which preceded bottles.

He added: 'I have milk bottles dating from the 1890s when they were first introduced. The glass was is green because they weren't progressed in making glass.

'Milk used to be ladled into customers jugs out of heavy churns. It was seen to be unhygienic and it was an entrepreneurial move by the dairies to introduce bottles.

'My favourites are the bottles from the 1950s when they had adverts using three or four colours, usually for eggs and butter.

'The adverts by each local dairy are individual, compared say, to the Kellogg's adverts.

'Most of these dairies have disappeared and some of them will have been built on. My collection is a record of the milk industry.

'I'm always looking for bottles from local farms which have the dairies name on them and would be glad to hear from anyone who has information or photo's of local dairies.' 

The first British milk bottles were produced by the Express Dairy Company in 1880, they used a porcelain stopper and were delivered by horse-drawn carts four times a day.

A new pasteurisation process which allowed milk to be sterilised and stored for longer was developed in 1894 and deliveries were reduced to once a day.

Advertisements began to appear on milk bottles in 1920 when a sand-blasting technique was used to etch them on the glass.

The advertising largely disappeared in the early 1990s with the introduction of infrared bottle scanners designed to check cleanliness.

Largest Guanyin Carved Ruby World Record by Monkarn Dhanajira

There is so little raw ruby substance left in Thailand. Over 80% of digged up ruby from all over the world are imported to Thailand to increase values by polishing, cutting, or carving neatly and exported as ornaments eventually. Gem experts have criteria to examine its quality by checking its material, colour, grade, and purify. Because of high technology, experts can examine even its age, substance details and sources. They can specify natural ruby from synthetic ones. Anyway, most people are willing to pay for the natural ones rather than the imitations.

Surprising enough, there are so many red shades of ruby such as birds’ blood red, sunrise red, lotus bloom red etc.

To write all these knowledgeable is just to link you to this special ruby carved in 1000 hands Guanyin form. It is not just an ordinary uncut ruby but a beautiful carved ruby which is intent to make a new world record for the largest carved ruby in this planet. The owner of this 17,831 carats purplish red ruby is Mrs. Monkarn Kongyoo. Her father bought it from Chantaburi and passed it on to her.

She had kept this large raw huge ruby for many years. After that she decided to carve it but had not found the design and model yet. She had spent about 5 years to discover the exact and suitable image for this precious stone and another more than 3 years to find the right and specialized craftsman at Thongtawee Carving Manufactory to create this beautiful sculpture.

The reason why she decides to make the new world record is to announce and make a history for her family and let the world know about the skill of thai craftsmen. This is to show that the master piece of unique largest carved ruby of the world is in Thailand! She would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Wilawan Atichat, the Director of GIT, for her helpful support to make this record attempt successfully on 15th July, 2010.

There were many people who came and enjoyed while I was setting a record. I hope more and more people get encouraged and start associating with music."

Born in Bhagalpur, Bihar, Paras started showing interest in music at the age of 13. Being from a family which had an inclination towards music, learning was never a problem for young Paras.

His first tutor was his mother, Heera Devi, from whom he learned the basics of music. But his real training began when he landed in Delhi in the year 1999. With a dream to be the best, he approached A S Gill Maharaj to fulfill his dreams and joined his music academy in Faridabad.

After spending seven years at the academy, Paras approached Pandit Debu Chaudhari to learn sitar in 2008. A year's training with his guru filled him with so much confidence that he decided to set a world record by playing it for 92 hours and 35 minutes.

Puja Kapoor was given a break in the television industry by Ekta Kapoor. Her story is one which will inspire many a people to overcome hurdles to find the genius in them.

You may remember Puja Kapoor as the guest on Farah Khan's talk show featuring celebrities Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut. A haphazard incident at the hospital left Puja victim to epilepsy and dyslexia. But inspite of that, she has brought alive the gift of music in her through patient nurturing of the skill.

His parents, Huma and Imtiyaz Khan realized this inborn talent when he was three years old. At the age of 7, he made a portrait of Mahatma Gandhi and till date he has held 8 exhibitions of his portraits in Pune and Mumbai.

Haris was selected as the youngest artist in a competition in New York. This was an online competition in which artists from all over the world participated.

He has also received an appreciation letter from former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.

Haris has also won 'Pride of Pune' contest. His work has been appreciated by Child Art Magazine in United States.

Haris says: "Before moving to Pune I lived with my large extended family in the small town of Burhanpur. I was very close to my Grandfather then. He was a great inspiration to me. He always told me about the story of freedom fighters like Mahatma Gandhi and others. That's why I have drawn so many portraits of Mahatma Gandhi."

"He used to make portraits of Mahatma Gandhi earlier and has recently taken up contemporary art. His father is a poet and he listens to his poetry and also to Mirza Ghalib and then he tries to put the emotions on canvas. Therefore, most of his paintings are a mixture of pain and hope," says Huma Khan, his mother.

His parents aim to send him to France School of Arts once he grows up.

Worlds Longest Saree Limca Book of Record set by Suneet Varma

Indian style guru Suneet Varma has gone beyond the ramp and has created the world’s longest embroidered saree at 55 meters. Beams the designer, “The saree is my forte. I have always looked up to this five yard wonder as a canvas on which I can do interesting things. It has paid off with this world’s longest embroidered saree, which a labour of love and a tribute to its timeless allure.”

It took 10 weeks for Suneet and his team to complete the masterpiece, which includeshand sequins embroidery, mirror work, thread work in aari and zardozi, hand sprinkle of bead work, and 3D flowers.

Ask him what inspired him to come out with something like this, and he say, “I took inspiration from Draupadi’s ‘chirharan’ episode in the Mahabharata. Therefore, the motifs and work on the saree are very Indian.” Now this saree finds its way into the Limca Book of Records.

Meanwhile, the designer who’s taught at various fashion houses plans to start a fashion archive. “As teachers, we only know to impart knowledge, and as a student the key to success is to absorb as much knowledge as one can. Therefore, I want to create an archival resource where we have works of all the prominent designers from India.”

After the super success of his clutch collection in Hollywood with the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez et al sporting it at various red carpet events, Suneet is all set to present the second collection of his clutch line with a high end luxury clutch brand.

“This time, the theme is inspired by minerals from India. I have created textures with the help of crystals of Tamba (brass), black soil instead of the motifs. It’ll be global in styling and yet Indian in essence and feel,” concurs the designer.

World's Longest Handshake Guinness World Record by Kiwi

A good, firm handshake shouldn't last more than two or three seconds. Any longer and it starts to get a bit awkward. Unless, of course, you're trying to set a world record.

Friday night, four teams of two from around the world congregated in New York's Times Square attempting to set a new Guinness World Record for the Longest Continuous Handshake.

The event began just after 8 p.m. outdoors in Father Duffy Square amidst frigid 24-degree weather and will carry on until the last team breaks the gentlemanly bond. Proceeds raised from donations will go to the charities of each team's choice.

The competition is the brainchild of 21-year-old John-Clark Levin of Ojai, Calif., who set a handshaking record in May 2009 while attending Claremont McKenna College. He and a college friend shook hands for 10 hours, 10 minutes, 10 seconds.

"We did it with very little prep, more or less on a whim," Levin told AOL News. "We thought it'd be good to break a Guinness record and raise money for cancer in the process."

The following September, while their record was still in the review process with Guinness, Levin learned that a team of Australian chums bested their record with a time of 12 hours, 34 minutes, 56 seconds. They, too, shook on behalf of a charity.

Determined to win back their record, the Claremont McKenna team roared back a month later with a 15-hour, 15-minute, 15-second shake.

According to Guinness, that record was also broken. It currently lists the record as 15 hours, 30 minutes, 45 seconds, achieved by Matthew Rosen and Joe Ackerman of the U.K., on Nov. 21, 2009.

Levin says a team from Nepal also broke their record.


Rather than allowing the global one-upsmanship to continue, Levin decided to extend his hand to all the teams -- along with a few new contenders -- for a winner-take-all competition.

"It would be better all around to gather, same place, same time, start shaking, last hand wins," he said. "It would have a greater impact for fundraising and awareness for the various causes these people have been supporting."

Levin has a new partner and co-organizer in Joe Luchsinger, a student at Baldwin-Wallace University. The two have met only once in Luchsinger's hometown of Bexley, Ohio. However, during that meeting they shook hands for 20 hours. The shake began in the evening, lasted through the night and an Ohio State football game the next day. They're competing on behalf of Teach for America.

"We're feeling great so far," Levin said shortly after the competition began. "But Robert Frost's words come readily to mind: miles to go, in this case hours to go, maybe even days to go, before we sleep."

One of the new teams determined to outshake Levin and Luchsinger hails from Auckland, New Zealand.

Half of that team features Alastair Galpin, 36, who holds the distinction of being the second biggest Guinness World Record breaker over the past decade. His nearly 100 records include the longest light bulb throw (94 feet) and the fastest time to shell one hard-boiled egg (18.95 seconds).

He's been preparing for this event since early December. His partner, 49-year-old Don Purdon, signed on just weeks ago and hopes to achieve his first world record. Together, they'll shake to raise money for the Auckland Down Syndrome Association.

"My attitude is I'll go until I collapse or until I win with a bang," Galpin said.

A mere ten minutes into the competition, with nine layers of clothing, he and Purdon were off to a good start.

"The key thing's gonna be the weather and how cold it gets in the middle of the night," Purdon said, who was armed with six layers.

Galpin held a previous record for the Longest Continuous Handshake, partnered with "a muscle-y young man" for nine hours, 19 minutes. "It was fun -- even urinating and being fed coffee," he said. "We were successful."

Prior to this current attempt, he consulted a sports doctor, physiologist, gym trainers and endurance specialists and believes he's mentally and physically ready. His training routine involved hours of shaking a sandwich spread bottle with his right arm wrapped in ice packs.

"People were staring, and some even dodging me, as I walked along in the 25- to 35-degree Celsius weather," he said in regards to his unorthodox technique. "If they knew what lay in store, they'd be doing it, too."

And while his partner is new to the world record world, he believes he's up to the task. Purdon, who runs his own design consultant company, has competed in other endurance events.

All participants will have to follow strict rules to remain in the competition. Hands must maintain a shaking motion at all times -- even if a bathroom break should be necessary. Guinness forbids any incontinence devices or nappies, and a video crew must attend any trips to a toilet.

For these reasons, Levin admitted during previous attempts that "we felt it was better to hold it in."

Teams can eat and drink, provided they can manage it with one hand or receive help from someone else.

But what about the inevitable sweat? Moisture could prove dangerous to the grip. When needed, Levin plans to adjust his hold just enough to allow rubbing alcohol to be sprayed between the hands.

"As it evaporates it dries the palms quickly," he explained. "So we can have a dry, firm grip."

An official Guinness adjudicator is on site to document the competition and uphold the rules.

"The people who train for these records are just incredibly motivated," Levin said. "With media surrounding, a live feed and thousands of passersby right here in Times Square, a lot of pride, a lot of charity, they're not going to go down easily. I expect the current record to go down by quite a lot."

The Virgin Holiday staff had composed dance troop and burlesque enthusiasts took part in the five-minute performance as a part of publicity stunt held by an airline.

Longest Sea Bridge in The World, Qingdao Haiwan Bridge, China

China has unveiled the world’s longest sea bridge, which stretches a massive 26.4 miles five miles further than the distance between Dover and Calais and longer than a marathon.

The Qingdao Haiwan Bridge, completed earlier this week, links the main urban area of Qingdao city, East China’s Shandong province, with Huangdao district, straddling the Jiaozhou Bay sea areas.

The road bridge, which took four years and cost a cool £5.5billion to build, will be open for use in the New Year and is almost three miles longer than the previous record-holder, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Louisiana.

That structure features two bridges running side by side and is 23.87 miles (38.42km) long.

The three-way Qingdao Haiwan Bridge is a staggering 174 times longer than London’s Tower Bridge, over the Thames River – and shaves 19 miles off the drive from Qingdao to Huangdao.

Two separate groups of workers have been building the different ends of the structure since 2006.

One engineer commented: ‘The computer models and calculations are all very well but you can't really relax until the two sides are bolted together.

‘Even a few centimetres out would have been a disaster,’ With an overall length of 42.58km, the route between Qingdao and Huangdao will be shortened by 30km, cutting the travel time by about 20 minutes.

However, the colossal construction is set to hold the record as the longest sea bridge only for a few years and it will be bettered by another Chinese bridge in the next decade.

Last December officials announced workers had begun constructing a bridge to link southern Guangdong province with Hong Kong and Macau.

Jyoti Amge, Shortest Living Teenager in The World, Limca Book of Records 2011

World's shortest living teenager set Limca Book of Records 2011 by Indian teen Jyoti Amge. At age 17, Jyoti Amge stands just 2 feet tall, but she could have some big shoes to fill.

Amge, who is already recognized by Guinness World Records as the world's shortest living teenager and in the Limca Book of Records as the "Shortest Girl" is poised to become the world's shortest living woman, so long as she doesn't grow more than 4.3 inches in the next 360 days.

The Indian teen dreams of finding fame as an actress in movies, but she'll likely first find fame when she's measured shortly after her 18th birthday on Dec. 15, 2011.

Amge was last measured by Guinness officials at a height of about 24.3 inches -- significantly shorter than current world record holder Elif Kocaman of Turkey, who stands about 28.6 inches.

Despite her short stature, Amge says she's an ordinary teenager.

"I am proud of being small. I love the attention I get," she told the Sunday Mirror. "I'm just the same as other people. I eat like you, I dream like you. I don't feel different."

So far, her height hasn't stood in her way. Like normal teenagers in the city of Nagpur, Amge goes to school and likes spending her time listening to music and shopping.

"When I first went to school, everyone was so big I used to get scared but I'm OK now, I like it," she told the Daily Mail. "I have a different desk and chair that were made for me. I'm a normal student."

Amge has a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia, which researchers believe occurs in just one out of every 25,000 births, according to Fox News.

Fastest Solar Powered Vehicle - Guinness World Record by Aussies

New South Wales University team is hoping that the solar power will lead them to a Guinness world record for fastest solar-powered vehicle.

“We’ve beaten the record by ten kilometers per hour,” an excited spokesman for UNSW told reporters.

He stated that the solar racer reached a speed of 54.6 mph (88 km/h), but the team believes it can get the car to go faster than 55.9 mph (90 km/h).

The fastest solar vehicle is powered by silicon solar cells which capture energy from the sun; IVy broke the official Guinness World Record in a time-trial on Friday

79 km/h (49 mph) is the previous world record for Fastest Solar Car in the world. The little solar car hit a top speed of 64 mph (103 km/h) during a race from Darwin to Adelaide back in 2009 and the same has broke the record several times in trial runs earlier on Friday unofficially.

Professional drivers Barton Mawer and Craig Davis at IVy’s controls ran official speed test at the HMAS Albatross naval base at Nowra on the New South Wales coast, south of Sydney.

IVy normally uses its solar cells to charge a 25kg storage battery, but same was removed for the Guinness world record attempt as vehicles trying to break the Guinness world speed record for a solar car are required to be powered only by solar cells.

The solar car generates about 1,200 watts in strong sunlight, which is equivalent power as a household toaster uses.

Youngest Microsoft Professional in the World

At the tender age of 6 years, Shruti Pandey has became youngest yoga trainer in the World.

The flexible youngster has been teaching adults at an ashram, in northern India, for the last two years.Hari Chetan, Her trainer, 67, set up the ashram 35 years ago and as soon as little Shruti became one of his students, as a tiny four-year old, he spotted her talents.

Her class is being started at 5.30am every morning, at Brahmanand Saraswati Dham, in the Jhunsi town, dressed in white leggings and a red t-shirt surrounded by 30 eager pupils ranging from businessmen, teachers, housewives to pensioners.

Shruti said that It feels good when people follow my instructions, I feel like a real teacher.

'I got interested in yoga after seeing my brother do it. I tried picking it up myself but it was too hard. So I asked my parents to send me to yoga classes.'

Harsh Kumar, Her brother, now 11-years-old, made the Limca Book of Records at the tender age of five by learning all 84 yoga positions - but he's never been interested in being a teacher like his sister.

Hari, who Shruti also calls her grandfather, think she's a miracle.

'She's a fast learner and a perfectionist. She grasps techniques quickly unlike kids her own age, who get bored with something as patience consuming as yoga.

'Within just six months of her training, she surprised everyone by doing the toughest positions with ease and perfection. She's a natural.'

Shruti can manage some of yoga's most challenging positions. She can easily hold her entire body on the strength of her little arms and hang her legs right over her head backwards.

One of Shruti's fans, 90-year-old Swami Bhanu, a retired teacher, said: 'The best thing about Shruti is she tries to provide an alternative position for the complicated ones that are difficult for an older person like me to do. She's very patient.'

Businessman Lokendra Pal Singh, 48, has been attending Shruti's classes for three months and said, 'I have noticed a positive change in my life. I used to be short-tempered, but now I'm able to control my anger to quite an extent and it's all thanks to a little six-year old.'
