10935Lucky Diamond, the dog snapped with most celebrities dies‎ at 15Guinness World Records was today saddened to hear the news that Lucky Diamond, holder of the record for 'Animal Most Photographed with Celebrities', has lost her battle with cancer.The rescued Maltese, who was 15 years old, passed away in her dog bed at her New York City home yesterday according to her owner, Wendy Diamond.Lucky was recognised by GWR in October last year after being snapped with 363 public figures including Bill Clinton, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Richard Branson, Jessica Biel and Kristen Stewart.Founder and Editor of Animal Fair Media, Inc, Wendy adopted the energetic and charismatic Maltese Lucky in 1999.As an animal rescue and welfare advocate and TV personality, Wendy would regularly take her loyal "wing dog" to shows and charitable events that would feature celebrities.Documenting her dog's life, Wendy launched a column featuring photographs of Lucky with celebrities showcasing worthy causes and her rescued pooch cheekily titled Who Got Lucky?.With Lucky's Facebook page attracting thousands of fans, friends encouraged Wendy to apply to Guinness World Records for consideration.Talking about her record-breaking dog, last year, Wendy said: "I always thought Lucky was sort of the Johnny Carson of canines but I never imagined a Guinness World Record!

10936World's oldest man Arturo Licata dies aged 111Guinness World Records is saddened to learn of the passing of Mr Arturo Licata, who held the world record for the Oldest person living (male). Our condolences are extended to the family and friends of Mr Licata.Arturo Licata was awarded the Guinness World Records title of Oldest living man on 28th February 2014 at the age of 111 Years, 302 days.Craig Glenday, Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief, said: “It’s sad to hear of the passing of Signor Licata – a man born before the Wright brothers' first powered flight, and one of only four men older than 111. The record of Oldest living man is one of the most significant superlatives that we monitor, and it’s been an honour to have recognised Snr Licata’s remarkable life.”Mr Licata was born on 2 May 1902 in Castrogiovanni (now Enna). At the age of 9 he went to work in the mines and, in 1921, aged 19, he joined the Italian army. Arturo’s military service finished in 1939 and he went on to enjoy a successful career in business. He is survived by seven children, eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. His wife Rosa sadly passed away in 1980, when Arturo was 78 years old. Currently 116-year-old female, Misao Okawa of Japan, is recognised by Guinness World Records as the world's Oldest Living Person overall. She was born March 5, 1898 and lives in Osaka.The greatest fully authenticated age to which any human has ever lived is 122 years, 164 days by Jeanne Louise Calment of France, who died in 1997.
10937Keene Pumpkin Festival gets ready for Halloween with largest lit jack-o'-lantern displayEvery October since 1991, the city of Keene, New Hampshire, USA, has held its Keene Pumpkin Festival.And five of those times, the ambitious town broke the Guinness World Records title for largest display of lit jack-o'-lanterns, in 1996-98, 2000, and 2004. But since that festival nine years ago, Keene had seen its crown taken by another group, going nearly 10 years without its trademark title.That's over now.Earlier this week, 30,581 pumpkins were carved, lit, and arranged, resulting in the largest display of lit jack-o'-lanterns going back to Keene and the organizing group Let it Shine.The main display area was the tower in the town's Central Square, featured in the photo above. But jack-o'-lanterns lined the town's Main Street, as shelves and towers brought the sight of orange from every direction.Certainly ones to add creativity to their world record attempt, carvers enlisted designs of all kinds, including messages for the city, mustached pumpkins, and a full chess set with each piece represented by a different pumpkin.Even the famous Angry Birds were present in the record-breaking tally.Tens of thousands of New Englanders descend upon Keene for the festival each year, and town officials estimate the city's population more than quadruples during the annual festival.This year's record tally more than doubles the very first time Keene set this record originally, at 13,044 lit jack-o'-lanterns in 1996.
10938City of Buenos Aires and LALCEC team up for World No Tobacco Day record attemptOn Friday, May 31, to celebrate "World No Tobacco Day," the Government of the City of Buenos Aires and LALCEC (La Liga Argentina de Lucha Contra el Cancer) will join forces to raise awareness about the dangers and illnesses caused by cigarettes to both active and passive smokers. From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the busy, pedestrian Florida Street in the heart of the South American capital city, they will attempt to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS mark for the most carbon monoxide tests taken in 8 hours.From simply blowing into a disposable CO monitor, the members of the public will be able to see the level of carbon monoxide in their blood, which is likely to be higher in smokers and those people who live with or are around smokers regularly. This GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS attempt, which will be adjudicated by GWR Latin American representative Ralph Hannah, will make Porteños more aware of the risks posed by smoking. In Argentina, the government estimate that more than 40,000 people die from smoking-related illnesses each year.“This will be the first attempt of its kind," Hannah said. "However, like other medical screening records, it is very important that everybody conducting the tests are qualified medical professionals and that each participant provides their name and National ID number. Most importantly for the record, we must be able to accurately count the number of people receiving the test.”The group will need to administer at least 250 tests to GWR criteria in order to earn its GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS achievement.

10946First European explorers of the New WorldThe "Norse", Eirik Thorvaldssonfirst, GreenlandThere are popular theories afloat that the Europeans were not the first Non-Indigenous American people, so to speak, to reach The New World (for our purposes, North and South America, as well as Iceland and Greenland). There are claims that the Chinese, and in alphabetical order, African blacks as well as Arabs, Greeks, Irish, Phoenicians, and even the Welsh reached North America. But the first Europeans to “discover” (in today’s politically charged climate, the preferred terminology is explored or even more in keeping with prevailing academic currents, “encountered”…) The New World, as it were, are generally considered to be the “Norse,” coming from, of course, Norway. First, Eirik Thorvaldsson, better know to us as Erik the Red, traveled to what is today, Greenland, about 982 AD, from Iceland. There had been previous reports by Norse sailors of islands lying to the East of Iceland. Erik was the father of Leif Eriksson, who is accepted, if not by complete consensus, to have been the first European to lead a group that reached North America (beyond Greenland). Most scholars concur that Eriksson touched land at L’Anse aux Meadows on the northern tip Newfoundland in what is today, Canada, in approximately 1000 AD. The journey was memorialized in “The Saga of the Greenlanders,” (“Saga” comes from a Norse word for “say” and this saga was originally an oral history later written down by sometime in the 13th Century.)

10948Newest crocodile speciesdesert (sacred) crocodile Crocodylus suchusMauritania12 October 2015The newest crocodile species to be recognised by science is the desert or sacred crocodile Crocodylus suchus of Mauritania, Nigeria, and several other countries in West Africa. In 2011, Fordham University zoologist Dr Evon Hekkala and her team of co-researchers revealed that their studies had discovered that the Nile crocodile C. niloticus was not one species but two, and that these two newly delineated species were actually only distantly related to each other. The team had sequenced the genes of 123 living Nile crocodiles and 57 museum specimens, including several 2,000-year-old Egyptian crocodile mummies, and the results confirmed that in addition to the larger, more savage, familiar Nile crocodile, a second, smaller, tamer species could be readily discerned. Moreover, all of the crocodile mummies examined proved to belong to this latter form, which was duly dubbed C. suchus.The exposure of the desert crocodile corroborated writings of the ancient Greek historian Herodotus, who had claimed long ago that in their ceremonies the ancient Egyptians had selectively utilized a smaller, tamer crocodile than the Nile crocodile and had considered it sacred. Probably due to having been out-competed by the bigger, more aggressive Nile crocodile, the desert crocodile no longer exists in the Nile region, being confined nowadays to parts of western Africa. including Mauritania, Benin, Nigeria, and the Congo regions.
