"The event was amazing."Speaking after the event, Rachel Fellows, director of communications and brand public relations at Kellogg's, said: "It is the most important meal of the day and often the most neglected."We're passionate about building awareness of breakfast and making it fun, and the record attempt felt like a good way to do both."This was a family event and having breakfast with your family should be part of your daily routine."Related stories Video: Breakfast in bed world record set in Australia Largest omelette world record set by Portuguese chefs Jamie Oliver and Gennaro Contaldo cook up Guinness World Records double for new YouTube channel launch

5676UC Irvine bashes way to largest pillow fight recordThe University of California Irvine is famous for a lot of things. UCI has produced 34 Olympians and three Nobel Prize winners famous actors like John Lovitz and influential scientists like Roy Fielding.But it's also building quite the reputation for another area of excellence - record-breaking.As part of its "Welcome Week" festivities to kick off the latest school year, the Associated Students of UCI have broken the record for the largest pillow fight, bringing 4,200 participants together on the Orange County"Welcome Week" serves the dual purpose of welcoming back returning students while also welcoming in new freshmen.It's also becoming known as the time to go after history, as the 2014 edition marks the fifth straight year the students have broken a record.From 2010-12, the Anteaters broke the record for the largest game of dodgeball, first with 1,745 students then 4,000 then 6,084.In 2013, they switched gears to break the largest water pistol fight, with 3,875 taking part.This time around, pillows were the weapon of choice. And the group broke the record in style, fighting to the Dada Life single, "Born to Rage." This provided a nice meta touch, as the previous record had been set at a Dada Life concert to promote "Born to Rage" last November.Proving the brains UCI possesses to go along with the brawn needed to pull off a fifth straight record-breaking year, the school's Antrepreneur Center created a “pillow trade” competition in which students can exchange their world record pillows for new items, with the hope of trading their way up to pay for college. "Every year I've been here, I'm a senior now, they've tried to set a world record," said UCI student and pillow fighter Reed McConnell.

5688Hundreds help break American football field goal record in New York’s Times SquareFrom Mike Janela in New York, USAOne of America's greatest sports traditions is "Bowl Season" - that wonderful time each year marking the end of the American college football season end. More than 30 games match some of the nation's best and most prestigious programs in battles to end their years on high notes.Of all the bowls played, one of the most prestigious is the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, which this year sees the No. 3 Oklahoma State Cowboys take on the No. 4-ranked Stanford Cardinal, as part of the Bowl Championship Series. But while many eyes will turn to the game itself on Jan. 2 in Glendale, Arizona, USA, the spotlight on this game starting shining back on 16 December, when I adjudicated an attempt for the "most people to make an American football field goal in six hours" at the Tostitos Fiesta in the Square celebration.With temperatures low, winds high, and former football stars in abundance, participants from around the world lined up in the middle of Times Square in New York to attempt their chance at history in the temporary football field assembled by Tostitos.Requiring 100 different people to successfully make a field goal of at least 20 yards, the Fiesta in the Square saw a total of 181 different participants put one through the uprights and into Guinness World Records lore.What struck me most while adjudicating the event was the wide range of participation. An event like this truly brought a huge variety of people together, running the gamut from foreigners to locals and football professionals to those who had never even put toe to pigskin before.Former football stars who attempted (and all converted) field goals included Jim Kelly, Eddie George, Antonio Pierce, Rodney Peete, and Bill and Martin Gramatica. Other participants included visiting tourists from Turkey, Australia, Mexico, and the UK. In total, 965 attempts were made by countless hundreds of people throughout the day, with the aforementioned 181 finding success.The teamwork resulted in more than just a Guinness World Records achievement, too. As a result of the final record total, Tostitos donated $200,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters charity. This was aided in part by Big Brothers Big Sisters advocate and entertainment personality Nick Lachey stepping up and drilling a successful field goal of his own.In all, a great exhibition was put on for sport, for charity, and, of course, for record-breaking history. The Fiesta Bowl itself already has a lot to live up to!
5689Largest origami mosaicOn 26 July 2008, an event entitled “Origami stars, millions of hearts” set a new record for the largest origami mosaic in Hong Kong, China. The record attempt was organized by Hong Kong Youth Visual Art Association, Hong Kong Chinese Arts Festival, Lo Fung Art Gallery Ltd and Hong Kong Union of Visual Artists Limited.Proceedings commenced at 9 a.m. in Hiu Kwong Street Sports Centre, Kwun Tong, Hong Kong. Around 2,000 participants took turns to join in the relay of making the mosaic, which took nine hours to complete.They made origami stars and pasted them onto paper on the floor to form a mosaic. The participants were mainly students and teachers from Hong Kong, but some people had come from other countries to be part of the record.In order to make the event successful, the organizers had trained 150 volunteers, who trained the school children in making origami stars for two weeks prior to the event. Altogether, over 100,000 origami stars were used to form the mosaic, which was based on a picture drawn by a student in Hong Kong it depicted a welcome from the Chinese people to the forthcoming Beijing 2008 Olympics and the best wishes for its success. The mosaic also featured five pandas in five colours. These represented goodwill ambassadors to welcome to the foreign friends who were due to visit Beijing from all over the world.Guinness World Records™ Adjudicator Angela Wu witnessed the whole event, and measured the size of the mosaic along with a professional surveyor from Hong Kong. The mosaic was 25.01 m (82 ft 0.6 in) long and 12.83 m (42 ft 1 in) wide, almost as big as a standard basketball court the total area of the mosaic was 320.87 m² (3,453 ft²) comfortably beating the previous record of 231.8 m² (2,496 ft²). When Angela announced the new record, everyone present was clearly overjoyed.

5691Toronto artist Wanda Goodman honors memory of former student with largest sculpting lessonToronto artist Wanda Goodman has produced sculptures professionally for more than 20 years, now operating the successful Wanda's Creative Clay shop.Also in that time, she's used her skills as a platform to teach children of all ages, helping "bring children together though the bonding of artistic expression and genuine approach, giving them the tools and the confidence to let their imagination run free," according to her Guinness World Records application.Ten years ago, Wanda met then-4-year-old Eden Worth in class, a child who would unknowingly inspire her to accomplish one of her life's greatest achievements. Wanda has broken the record for the largest sculpting lesson, teaching a class of 588 participants at KidsFest in Toronto on July 5.In this case, though, the reason for the record was perhaps more important to Wanda than the accomplishment itself.Shortly after they met, little Eden was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Despite ongoing treatments and a long fight, Eden succumbed to the disease in 2013, just shy of her 13th birthday.Throughout Eden's struggle, Wanda grew closer with the child, teaching her sculpture for years. When Eden could no longer go to Wanda's classes due to her treatments, Wanda took the lessons to Eden.And so, just after a year since Eden's passing, Wanda decided to hold a fundraising event in her honor. She taught the 588 students at KidsFest how to sculpt clay elephants - elephants because those were Eden's favorite animal.All of the proceeds raised by the event through sponsorships and donations were then donated to SickKids, the fundraising arm of The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Wanda was able to raise more than $15,000 in Eden's name on the day of the event for brain tumor research." We DID IT!!!!!!!!!" Wanda shared on Facebook immediately after the attempt. "Truly an emotional day! Thank you to EVERYONE that made this day possible."Is there a cause you'd like to promote like Wanda did with for Eden?
