14402Shortest cow (height)Manikyam61.1 cm (24.07 in) centimetre(s)India, Kerala21 June 2014The shortest cow is Manikyam, owned by Ashkay N.V. (India), in Kerala, India. She measured 61.1 cm (24.07 in) from the hoof to the withers on 21 June 2014.GWR travelled to Kerala, India, to visit mini Manikyam. We asked local veterinarian Dr E M Muhammed for the lowdown on this diminutive bovine...When did you first hear about Manikyam?About two years ago, we became aware that this animal was much shorter than ordinary cows. Manikyam was about four years old at the time, but even when she was only nine or 10 months old we could tell there was something different about her. We monitored her closely from the age of two. By the age of four she was around 64 cm (2 ft 1 in) tall.How does Manikyam compare to a conventionally sized cow?Usually, our local cows are about 150 cm (4 ft 11 in) in height. Manikyam is a Vechur breed, well known for producing dwarf cows. Vechurs tend to grow to a maximum height of around 90 cm (2 ft 11 in).Why do you think the area produces such short cows?We think it may be to do with the unusual climatic conditions of our state. It is hot and particularly humid here, and we believe this has an effect on the height of our cattle. If Vechur cattle are taken elsewhere in the country, over time they increase in height. It’s only in Kerala that they maintain their dwarf stature. Really interesting!We’ve been working in this field for the past 10 years. It seems that Vechur cattle have what is known in the scientific community as “thermometer genes”, which allow them to survive in hot, humid conditions. And they are highly resistant to infection too – they can even withstand foot‑and-mouth disease.
14403Most chromosomes for an antPlatythyrea tricuspidata, dinosaur or dawn ant Nothomyrmecia macropsNot Applicable18 September 2015The greatest number of chromosomes recorded from any ant is 94 in the diploid condition (i.e., 47 pairs). This figure was recorded from two different species – the so-called dinosaur or dawn ant Nothomyrmecia macrops of western and southern Australia's scrub and Platythyrea tricuspidata, native to the lowland rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia. Also, the chromosomes of the dinosaur ant are usually dot-like in shape, rather than long and slender like more familiar chromosomes this species was described in 1934.Ants belong to the taxonomic insect order Hymenoptera, which also contains bees, wasps, hornets and sawflies. All hymenopteran species so far studied that have a diploid chromosome count above 52 (i.e., above 26 pairs) are ants. N. macrops earns its common names from its extremely primitive form, which has led some entomologists to look upon it as a living fossil species.

14409First stigmatic priestPadre PiofirstItaly, San Giovanni Rotondo,FoggiaStigmata are bleeding wounds that appear spontaneously and inexplicably in a person´s hands (sometimes also in their feet and side), and which correspond to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus. The first stigmatic priest in the history of the Roman Catholic Church was Padre Pio (1887-1968), who spent much of his priesthood as a Capuchin priest at Our Lady of Grace Friary in San Giovanni Rotondo, near Foggia, Italy. He gained the five classic stigmata on Friday 20 September 1918, which he retained for the rest of his life, i.e. over 50 years, making him the world´s longest recorded stigmatic. His stigmata wept a large cupful of blood every day, caused him great physical pain, and never healed, but never became infected either.
1441060 years on, the categories that Guinness World Records no longer monitorsSince 1955, many Guinness World Records categories have been discontinued. Here are a few highlights.
14411Call of Duty: Black Ops’ crowned winner OF greatest videogame ending in Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer's Edition pollGuinness World Records can today reveal the Top 50 Videogame Endings of All Time as voted for by 13,519 fans of gaming. Conducted for the new Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer's Edition book, the list will cause heated debate among passionate gamers and provide further evidence of the growing sophistication and popularity of videogames. Last year's best-selling videogame, Call of Duty: Black Ops, developed by Treyarch, tops the list. The dramatic finale features a frantic shoot-out inside a submarine and provides our hero Mason the chance to take vengeance for a murdered friend. The closing sequence offers a new twist on the classic JFK conspiracy theory. Second place in the list is 2010's Halo: Reach developed by Bungie. Another First-Person Shooter, Halo: Reach takes place in the year 2552, with humanity locked in a war with the alien Covenant. During the post credits sequence the player's character, Noble Six, makes a final stand against impossible odds. Although he is eventually overwhelmed, his sacrifice ensures that the 'Master Chief' survives. Over 13 year's old, Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time takes third place in the list. One of the best loved games of all time ends in classic fashion with our iconic character defeating Ganondorf and rescuing Princess Zelda. The rest of the 50 offers a definitive list of the greatest videogame endings of all time. Notable entries include Red Dead Redemption (2010) which comes in at number 6. Rockstar's mega-hit finishes like all good Western films with retribution, revenge and bloodshed. At number 7 is Portal (Valve, 2007). The highly memorable ending breaks from tradition, with the final boss, GLaDOS, appearing to be defeated but then going on to perform a musical number titled 'Still Alive'. The song, written by nerd-folk artist Jonathan Coulton, has become a cult hit and been immortalised in numerous online tributes. Quantic Dream's highly innovative Heavy Rain (2010) makes up the 10. The game features 22 possible endings which add to the excitement of the thriller. Will your in-game choices result in the 'all round happy-ending' or will they instead lead to an ending so dark that you'll witness the deaths of most the game's major characters. Gaz Deaves, Gaming Editor for Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer's Edition said: "Everyone has an opinion on how to end a game whether it's an epic boss fight, a clever plot twist or a 90-minute movie. This list recognises some of the greatest endings and hopefully will get gamers talking about what are their favourites and why." The full list is featured in the new Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer's Edition book out now.The book is also available in a fully illustrated, full colour eBook format at Kobo and Apple's ibooks.
