9035Vodafone set new Longest Christmas Cracker Pulling Chain recordThere were plenty of paper hats being donned at the UK HQ for Vodafone in Newbury earlier this month following a successful attempt for the longest Christmas cracker pulling chain record.Organised to support the Text Santa charity campaign which Vodafone has been helping to facilitate, participants were made up of members of staff from the telecoms firm who were all in festive spirits ahead of the attempt.Under the record guidelines, those taking part had to form one continuous chain with their arms crossed, with every participant holding a cracker in each hand apart from the two participants at the start and at end of the line. The crackers being used also had to be commercially available.Once all the participants were in place and had been counted, it was time for the Guinness World Records attempt to start. In order to qualify, all participants would have to simultaneously pull their crackers in an unbroken chain, making sure that all crackers had snapped, before they could disperse.As it was the first time this Guinness World Records title had been attempted, a minimum target of 250 partakers had been set.The final total easily surpassed the required benchmark, with an impressive 566 crackers simultaneously popped in an unbroken chain, bringing some welcome Christmas cheer to all those who took part.

9059First senateRoman SenatefirstNot ApplicableThe Ancient Romans are credited with establishing the first ever senate. The term comes from the Latin word “senex”, which means elder, old man or council of elders. The Roman Senate pre-dates both the Roman Republic and the later Roman Empire and can be traced back to the earliest days of Rome in the 8th century BC (753 BC is the apocryphal date for the founding of Rome). It continued to survive in some form until at least the 13th century AD, as part of the Eastern Roman Empire at Constantinople. The early Senate was a deliberative body, not a legislative one, meaning that it did not propose laws or vote on them. The Roman historian Livy said that the original body consisted of 100 senators, whose duty was to advise the King of Rome. Criteria for serving as a senator included having great wealth and being at least 30 years old, which is also the age requirement for serving in today’s United States Senate.
