4749First use of spyware to cheat immigrationUnknownfirstUK, Kingston Crown Court11 November 2008On Tuesday 11 November 2008, in Kingston Crown Court, UK, two men were convicted of using sophisticated spying technology to assist people to cheat when taking immigration tests. In court, evidence was given the two men had supplied Chinese men with tiny buttonhole cameras attached to shirts, as well as a microphone and a small earpiece. With this equipment, they were able to give advice and feed information to exam candidates, so that they knew which answer boxes to tick. They were uncovered by a member of the public who became suspicious as they sat in a car outside a public building, as there were wires running from under the bonnet to the inside of the car. Police, on searching the car, found laptops, radio transmitters and other surveillance equipment. Police said that they were using sophisticated technology worth thousands of pounds and believe that they have uncovered a significant criminal enterprise and that they will now recover substantial assets from the defendants under the Proceeds of Crime Act. It is thought to be the first case of its kind.

4759Largest plotted imageSikkens – Akzo Nobel , Nussli , Dotdotdot, Decsia, INRES, Coop, Carlo Ratti Associati878,7466 m² (9458,7497 ft²) square metre(s)Italy, Milan05 October 2015The largest plotted image has a total surface area of 878.7466 m² (9,458.7497 ft²) and was achieved by Carlo Ratti Associati, Coop, INRES, Decsia, Dotdotdot, (all Italy), Nussli (Switzerland) and Sikkens – Akzo Nobel (Netherlands), at the Milan Expo in Milan, Italy, on 5 October 2015. A Vertical plotter, placed on the external facade of the Future Food District drew the record breaking image. The Future Food District (FFD) is a 7000 sq. m. thematic pavilion that explores how digital technology can change the way we interact with the food that we eat, informing us about its origins and characteristics and promoting awareness on consumption habits. The pavilion was designed by Carlo Ratti Associati together with the supermarket chain COOP Italia and it was unveiled at the opening of Expo Milano 2015 “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”. At Expo, the FFD Vertical Plotter draws visitor’s portraits on the pavilion facade using spray paint in five different colours. Firstly, photographs of the visitors’ faces are digitally converted into a stylised sketch, then, as modern pictographs, the pictures are painted on the pavilion façades. The portraits are continuously changing thanks to the overlapping of the visitor’s contour lines.
4760Earliest cavity wall insulationOverstone Hallfirst firstUnited Kingdom, NorthamptonConstructed in 1860, Overstone Hall in Northampton, UK, is the world’s earliest building to boast double walls (two skins of masonry, separated by an air gap), thus endowing it with cavity wall insulation. It was designed by architect William Milford Teulon for Lord and Lady Overstone as a highly “modern" residence, and behind the Grade-II-listed historical façade lie a central heating system (called Mr Price’s Apparatus), gas lighting and a butler’s lift. Overstone Hall took so long to build that Lady Overstone died before it was completed, and Lord Overstone reputedly disliked the house so much that he never moved in. In the twentieth century, Overstone Hall has been the home of a wealthy shipping magnate, a college, and a girls’ public school, before being acquired by New Testament Church of God for £100,000 in 1980. On 16 April 2001 a fire left the estate in semi-ruined state.

4762Most abundant monkeygelada Theropithecus geladaEthiopia04 October 2015The most abundant species of monkey for which a total population size estimate has been produced by researchers is the gelada Theropithecus gelada. Native to Ethiopia and related to the baboons but vegetarian in diet, according to the IUCN this species has a current estimated total population of approximately 200,000 individuals. Overall densities based upon surveys conducted in a variety of different locations vary between 15 and 60 individuals per square km, but densities of animals within home ranges frequently exceed 70 individuals per square km.As stated by the IUCN: "Geladas are widespread throughout their present range but, partly as a result of the droughts affecting the Horn of Africa in the 1980s, they are not as abundant as in the 1970s when an aerial survey of the central Ethiopian highlands yielded an estimate of 440,000 for the total population. An alternative estimate based on known ground densities and the total area of gorge face on the plateau yielded a figure of 880,000. C. Hunter (pers. comm.) considers that these estimates may now be too high, and that a better guesstimate would be approx. 200,000 animals".

4767Highest damJinping-I DamChina, SichuanThe tallest dam in the world is the Jinping-I Dam in Sichuan, China. Sitting across the Yalong River, the dam uses a double curvature thin arch, and reaches 305 m (1,001 ft) high – 4 m (13 in) taller than the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The dam wall has a crest length of 568.5 m (1,865 ft). Construction of the dam began on 12 November 2005, and the long process of filling the dam with water, known as impoundment, began on 8 October 2008, and when complete will create a reservoir area of 82.55 km² (888,557,250 ft²). The hydroelectric power plant uses six Francis-type turbines of 600 MW each, creating a total of 3,600 MW. Designed by CHIDI, the dam is owned by the Ertan Hydropower Development Company.China is constructing 21 hydropower stations along the Yalong River (a tributary of the Yangtze River), with a capacity of 30GW and generating 150 TWh each year. This makes Yalong River the third largest hydropower base in China, after the Yangtze River and the Jinsha River.The long process of filling the Jinping-I Dam with water (known as “impoundment”) began on 8 October 2012, and has been been blamed by some for contributing to 300 minor earthquakes in the Sichuan province, through a process known as “reservoir-induced seismicity” (RIS). Several studies have indicated that a magnitude-8 earthquake, and which killed 90,000 people in the Sichuan province in 2008, may have been triggered by the Zipingpu Dam and its reservoir completed several years earlier. The first hydropower station in China was built in 1912 in Shilongba, Yunnan Province with an installed capacity of 500 kW.
4768London Business School students celebrate diversity with most nationalities in a sing-along recordThe London Business School’s annual cultural festival TATTOO recently played host to an inspiring record attempt for the Most nationalities in a simultaneous popular music sing-along, earning the title with a grand total of 72 different countries represented.
4769Top 5 Superman Records to Celebrate "Man of Steel"The latest film in the Superman canon hits theaters this week, as "Man of Steel" sees Henry Cavill donning the famous cape as Clark Kent for the first time. With the summer tentpole expected to open up to a $100 million weekend in the U.S. and do massive business globally, I decided to swap some e-mails with fellow staffer Dan Barrett across the Atlantic (Dan manages our page over on and our Twitter @GWRNews. So go there and say hi!). We traded some thoughts on our favorite Superman records found in the official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS database.5.) Fastest marathon in superhero costume (male)Mike: Alright I have to admit off the bat that this is cheating a bit, because the current record holder for fastest marathon in a superhero costume belongs to The Flash. Well, at least to Stephane Hetherington, who dressed as The Flash to run the Toronto Waterfront Marathon in 2 hr 33 min 58 sec in 2012. But at the 2011 Virgin London Marathon, David Stone (above) ran dressed as Superman for a then-record time of 2 hr 42 min 46 sec. Weirdly enough for a guy with super speed, that's the only time out of seven record holders in this category that somebody dressed as Superman. Dan, you must have a superhero in mind to dress as when you run your first marathon, right?Dan: I guess we’re just lucky The Flash is also a DC comics superhero and not one from Marvel, or we’d have an all-out war on our hands! Though on that note, I think I’d have to go with the Hulk as my superhero dress-up character of choice for running a marathon. Shirtless and shorts seems a LOT more practical than Batman’s cowl, full-body suit and heavy utility belt to me. Though long distance running could well be my kryptonite…4.) Most portrayed superhero on televisionvideoDan: This should come as no surprise to anyone who watched a lot of TV in the 90’s – both a live-action series starring Dean Cain (Clark Kent/Superman) and Teri Hatcher (Lois Lane), AND an animated series were both in heavy rotation for a number of years back then. This isn’t counting of course the older Superman shows, or the more recent 10 (yes, TEN) years of Smallville, featuring a young Clark/Superman.Mike: Totally makes sense that the king of the superhero hill has had the most TV portrayals, with four live-action series. I was just becoming a teenager when "The Adventures of Lois and Clark" was finishing its TV run in the 90s, and let's just say the somewhat attractive Teri Hatcher made me quite fond of that show over any of the others featuring "Supe."3.) Largest gathering of people dressed as SupermanMike: This is our most recent record on the list, as it was achieved just earlier this month by employees of the U.S. retail brand Sears. It was done to celebrate the "Man of Steel" release (which, of course, also happens to be the reason for this post) and 566 people came together for the record (above). As far as team-building lunch events go to break up the workday, I think getting to dress up in the freshest new Superman cape is a pretty good deal — certainly cooler than your average trust falls.Dan: Those are some really good Superman costumes they’re wearing! It’s great to see such attention to detail was taken with this attempt, and I’m sure all those involved appreciated it. As you say, I’m sure it was a lot more enjoyable than most work events. It’s just a shame we at GWR don't have enough employees to break it! Well, that and the fact we’re not allowed to hold records we have to be impartial, after all…video2.) Largest collection of Superman memorabiliaDan: Herbert Chavez of the Philippines doesn’t just have a collection numbering 1,253 Superman-related items (that figure as of 22 nd February last year, he surely has more now) – I hear he’s also had a number of plastic surgery procedures to make himself look more like his idol. With your years of records management experience, Mike, what can you tell us about this why is it we don’t have a record for this also?Mike: It's true, having judged records for some 3.5 years I've learned a thing or two about what does or doesn't make a good one. While Herbert's memorabilia collection fits our rules, his attempts to look the most like Superman do not. All records need to be measurable and standardizable (which a collection of items is), not aesthetic and subjective (which is why a record for looking the most like a superhero is not). Although I must admit, Herbert (pictured atop this post) does look like he'd be ready to apply for a reporting job at The Daily Planet any day now. Or like he'd be ready to pose for the album cover of "Bad."1.) Most expensive comicMike: The granddaddy of all Superman records: where it all began. The most expensive comic is Action Comics No. 1, published in 1938, a copy of which sold for $2.161 million (then £1,388,850) in November 2011. Mentioning it is like mentioning the name "Babe Ruth" to a baseball fan. This comic featured the first appearance of Superman and has rightfully gone on to hold mythic status as it launched an icon, a superhero, and a character who's fought for truth, justice, and the American way (had to slip that in there as the token American in this blog post!) for more than 75 years. Iron Man and the Avengers may be the hotness these days, but let's not forget the original superhero.Dan: Babe who? Wait, isn’t that a chocolate bar over there? As the token Brit in this post, I must feign at least some ignorance of your Yankee history! Back to the record in question, it seems only right that Superman be the character front and centre in the most expensive comic book – as you say, he was the original pants-on-the-outside superhero. You mention the popularity of the rival Marvel series, but Superman is far from forgotten – the new Man of Steel film is the reason we wrote this, after all!
4770World Cup Rewind: Ronaldo sets all-time goals world recordThe 2014 World Cup in Brazil is almost upon us. To get you in the mood for this summer’s tournament, over the next seven days we’ll be taking a look back at the stories behind some of the most significant World Records set on the beautiful game’s biggest stage.We kick off with one of the home nation’s most celebrated footballing heroes, Ronaldo, and his Guinness World Records title for Most FIFA World Cup finals goals by a football player.For more than a decade Ronaldo was Brazil’s main hitman.Unparalleled power, pace to scare any defence and a ruthlessness in front of goal that many looked at in awe Ronaldo was very much the all-round package.His list of footballing honours reads more like a bibliography, having set the world alight at some of the biggest clubs including Inter Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid.He also stands as one of only ten players to have won the FIFA World Player of the Year award on more than one occasion, joining the likes of Johan Cruyff, Marco van Basten and Lionel Messi, having taken the Ballon d'Or in 1997 and again in 2002.Arguably more impressive is the fact that he holds one of football’s most prestigious Guinness World Records titles - Most FIFA World Cup finals goals by a football (soccer) player, having hit the back of the net 15 times on soccer’s greatest stage (four times during France 98, eight in 2002 in Japan/South Korea and scoring three times during Germany 06).Born Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima on the 18 September 1976, he began his playing career at Cruzeiro, making his league debut on 7 September 1993 against Corinthians, two weeks before his 17th birthday.videoIn his first season he notched up an impressive 12 goals in 14 appearances. It was a feat that brought him to the attention of the national team, with his burgeoning reputation seeing him selected for Brazil’s triumphant USA ‘94 World Cup squad.While he did not make an appearance during the tournament, Ronaldo’s status as one of the game’s hottest talents was ensured, with the teenager making the move to European football shortly afterwards with a transfer to Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.This was followed by a move to Spanish giants Barcelona two years later for a then world record fee of $19.5 million, before a move to Inter Milan just a year later for another record-setting fee of $27 million.With the hype surrounding his talents at its height, Ronaldo entered the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France billed by reporters and experts as the world's greatest footballer.He would have to wait until Brazil’s second group stage match against Morocco to open his World Cup scoring account, thundering home a precise drive in the 9 th minute in an eventual 3-0 win. This was followed with a brace against Chile in the second round and a trademark finish in the box against the Netherlands in the semi-finals.videoThe eventual final in Paris against France was marred by controversy, with Ronaldo’s name left off the team sheet, only to reappear just in time for kick-off amid rumours that he had suffered a seizure in the build-up to the match.Looking decidedly below-par, Ronaldo was subsequently eclipsed by Zinedine Zidane in a one-sided match that saw France crowned world champions for the first time.Following the tournament, Ronaldo reinforced his reputation as the world’s best striker at club level, and was in scintillating form for Inter Milan before rupturing a tendon in his knee during a Serie A match against Lecce in November 1999.Disaster struck just nine minutes into his comeback match the following April, when he suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament in the same knee.The devastating injury kept Ronaldo out of Brazil's entire qualification campaign for the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea where, in his absence, the team was far from impressive.His return from injury in time for the tournament was nothing short of sensational, with Ronaldo proving to be the inspiration as Brazil lifted the World Cup for the fifth time.Making up the "three R's", alongside formidable attacking partners Rivaldo and Ronaldinho, Ronaldo ended the tournament as top scorer with eight goals, having scored against every opponent in the tournament except in the quarter-finals against England.videoIn the final against Germany in Yokohama, Japan, Ronaldo scored twice and tied Pelé's Brazilian record of 12 career World Cup goals.videoHis display during the tournament ensured another big money move, this time to Real Madrid for €46 million.Despite growing criticism of his weight and fitness, coach Carlos Alberto Parreira nevertheless named Ronaldo in the starting line-up for Brazil during the 2006 World Cup in Germany.With his two goals against Japan in the third match of the tournament, he became the 20th player ever to score in three different FIFA World Cups. More significantly, he would go on to break Gerd Müller's World Cup finals scoring world record with his 15th and final World Cup goal in the second round match against Ghana.videoBrazil would eventually get knocked out by France 1–0 with a goal from striker Thierry Henry in the quarter-finals, but Ronaldo had nevertheless made his own piece of footballing history during the tournament.A final move to a big European club would follow in 2007 to AC Milan before Ronaldo eventually ended his playing career four years later whilst at Brazilian side Corinthians, succumbing to the knee injuries which had blighted him throughout his career.videoHe now splits his time between being co-owner of motorsports team A1 Brazil and as a regular player on the international poker circuit.During a recent interview with Football Italia, Ronaldo admitted that he expects his record to be beaten during this year’s World Cup in his home country of Brazil.Germany’s Miroslav Klose stands just one goal behind his total of 15 and Ronaldo accepts that the Lazio forward will likely surpass him at this summer’s tournament. “Klose is 35 years old, he could have already stopped playing!” he jests.“All joking aside, I am proud of my career and of the records I set. But I know that one day they will be broken.”“It would be nice to keep it for a while longer but I am cheering for someone to break the record. It will be good for the sport.’”With Klose named as Germany’s only recognised out-and-out striker in their World Cup squad for this year’s tournament, the Lazio forward looks certain to get the game time needed to set a new record.videoKlose sounded confident when speaking to earlier this month about his chances of taking the record: “I assume I will be 100 per cent ready for the tournament. I feel good and I'm on the right path”, he said“The fitness coaches know me very well and they know exactly what I need, so everything is moving in the right direction”,“For me, the main thing is to be fit and the most important thing is the team," he said. "I am convinced that when the team plays well, then the striker will also get his chances. But anyone who knows me is aware that the goal record is a target of mine”.
