Giant Israeli Flag Breaks World Record

    An Aerial view of large Israeli and Philippine flags after they were laid on the ground at the Masada airfield near the Dead Sea, Sunday, Nov. 25, 2007.

    The massive blue and white Israeli flag, measuring 18,847 square meters - the size of two soccer fields - and weighing 5.2 metric tons, broke the record for the world's largest. It was measured by representatives for the Guinness Book of Records. Filipino entrepreneur and evangelical Christian Grace Galindez-Gupana decided two years ago to produce a giant Israeli flag as a testament to her love for Israel and the Jewish people, and as a celebration of 50 years of diplomatic relations between the Philipines and Israel.

    The record for the world's largest flag now belongs to an Israeli banner produced by a Filipino evangelical Christian.

    The huge blue and white flag, measuring 2,165 feet long and 330 feet wide and weighing 5.7 tons, breaks the record for the world's largest, according to the Israeli Ministry of Tourism.

    The flag was unfurled Sunday beneath the ancient Jewish desert fortress of Masada. Representatives of the Guinness Book of Records measured the flag and later confirmed the record.

    Filipino entrepreneur Grace Galindez-Gupana said she decided two years ago to produce a giant Israeli flag as a testament to her love for Israel and the Jewish people and as a celebration of 50 years of diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Israel.

    "God spoke to me in thunder and lightning," Galindez-Gupana said. "The Lord said, 'Make the flag of Israel, the standard of my people.'"

    "This is a tall order," she said, breaking down in tears.

    The Israeli flag was accompanied by a giant Philippines flag — huge, but not quite as big. It weighed about 4.2 tons.

    Large stones anchored both flags as they billowed in the desert winds.

    There are about 31,000 Filipinos in Israel, most of whom are foreign workers, said Gilberto Asuque, consul general of the Philippine Embassy in Israel.

    "This flag expresses the friendship between the Philippines and the state of Israel, and also the friendship between Jewish and Christian communities," said Shaul Zemach, director of the Israeli Ministry of Tourism.

Fifty Children Wrapped up in Record Breaking Bubble

    A few seconds was all it took for this shimmering tube of soap and water to set a world record.

    At 11ft across and more than 5ft high before it burst, it enclosed 50 children to pop the previous record of 42 bubble-bound children set in the U.S. earlier this year.

    'Pretty bubbles in the air': Sam Heath gazes at his huge creation

    It was created by "bubbleologist" Sam Heath at the Science Museum in London. The children, all of whom had to be over 5ft, squeezed on a stage surrounded by a moat of soapy water.

    Mr Heath dipped a wand - a metal hoop with a 36ft circumference - into the solution, before raising it above their heads.

    He had briefly held the record in 2006, when he encased 19 schoolkids in a bubble at Chessington World of Adventures theme park in Surrey.

    Representatives from the Guinness Book of Records were on hand to adjudicate and the soapy spectacle was witnessed by hundreds of schoolchildren.

    The record breaker coincided with the opening of the museum's flagship interactive gallery of physics phenomena, entitled Launchpad.

    Launchpad features 50 new, live, previously-unseen interactives, devices and experiments. Visitors launch rockets, capture multicoloured shadows, turn heads into sound boxes and control magnetic clouds.

Piggy Runing Competition in China

    Pig sprinters stop before the finish line of a 50-meter race at a special sports meet for pigs in Ningxiang County in China's central Hunan Province on Saturday.




    Obviously, the sprinters are not professionals. Before the finish line of a 50-meter race, they stopped as if they were hesitating. A brave athlete finally reached out one leg to cross the line. But unfortunately, one of his competitors crossed it a few second earlier, by stretching his neck to smell something on the ground.

    The race was one of the events held at a special sports meet for pigs in Ningxiang County in China's central Hunan Province on Saturday. The county, one of China's largest pig-raising areas, hosted the meet to promote its major industry.

    Porcine athletes from 10 breeding companies across the country took part in different competitions, including hurdle-jumping, swimming, short-sprinting and eating.

    A 1,040-kilogram porker also was exhibited at the event. Its owner said he intended to donate the giant sow to next summer's Beijing Olympic Games.

world's largest piece of salt beancurd

    The world's largest piece of salt beancurd appeared at the Hunan International Agriculture Fair in Changsha, capital city of central China's Huanan province, on November 20, 2007.

    The world's largest piece of salt beancurd appeared at the Hunan International Agriculture Fair in Changsha, central China's Huanan province on Tuesday.

    About 2.6 meters long, 1.3 meters wide and 0.2 meters thick, the salt beancurd used 500 kilograms of quality soybean, which in the end weighs over 620 kilograms and could feed some 1,000 people.

    Beancurd is usually made from soybeans and food gypsum, an edible additive. But food gypsum is nowadays often replaced by salt in making beancurd. The new substitute can make the beancurd fresher and softer. Due to the new additive, the product is now also called salt beancurd.


    Manager of the beancurd company, Xiao Baohua, said their salt beancurd on display is the largest such piece in the world.

Ugliest man in the world

    A wealthy lawyer says he must be the ugliest man in the world after having 5,000 marriage proposals turned down.
    Croatian lawyer, Emil Kacic, who has logged all the failures in a little black book, said: "Money can't buy you love, at least if you have a face like mine."

    After placing adverts in local papers stressing his wealth with words like "tender and rich lawyer looks for a pretty lady to marry" and then "disgustingly rich lawyer looks for a pretty lady to marry", he was still unable to find a wife.

    He said: "I've got to the point where I have even been asking women I am meeting in the streets to marry me, but they always say no."

    Kacic, from Zagreb, said he had now accepted that he must be the ugliest man in the world.

    In an interview with daily newspaper, Vecernji List, dejected Kacic said: "I've tried placing all kinds of different ads, but not a single woman I've met through my adverts has accepted my offer. What else is there to believe, other than that I must be the ugliest man in the world."

    But disappointment has yet to defeat hope: "No success yet, but I will keep trying," he resolved, adding: "I hope all the publicity over my failed search for love might bring me love at last."

French man cooks up world record feast

    A French cook has prepared the world's largest mechoui grill -- spit-roasting a 550-kg camel for 15 hours at a seaside Moroccan town south of Rabat.

    "It's a tradition that's fallen out of favour," said 63-year-old Christian Falco from the south-western French city of Perpignan, describing a time two centuries ago when a Moroccan king offered a roast camel to his people.

    "I brought it back," said Falco, a six-time Guinness world record holder whose other culinary claims to fame include spit-roasting the world's largest slab of beef, 985.5 kg, in 1996.

    Falco began barbecuing his latest meal early yesterday, using 2.7 tonnes of wood and 15 litres of oil to cook the camel meat.

    About 500 intrepid diners feasted on it last night at the seaside town of Safi, paying 150 dirhams ($A20) for the experience.

    Safi was also the settng for the world's largest tajine, a North African stew, made of sardines in 1999.

    Falco is already planning his next challenge -- to beat the world record for the biggest spit-roasted bison in Costa Rica.

Donkey wedding staged to bring rain

    Residents of India's southern city of Bangalore have married off two donkeys, in the hope that the ancient ritual will usher in good monsoon rains.

    Though monsoons have hit southern India, Bangalore is still waiting for its first showers and residents decided to invoke the ritual - detailed in Hindu scriptures - after their prayers failed to deliver.

    Two donkeys - the bride Ganga and the groom Varuna - tied the knot at a temple on the city outskirts to loud cheers of about 100 guests, who attended the ceremony.

    Rains are crucial in India, as the majority of the country's population of over 1 billion depends on agriculture and farming.

    The happy couple - who wagged their tails, oblivious to the commotion - were married off in a traditional Hindu ceremony, with the bride clad in a green silk sari with gold zari.

    'Praying for rain'

    Great attention was also paid to ritualistic details such as the perfect invitation card, the right wedding attire and the freshest flowers.
    A traditional band entertained the guests, who sprinkled the newlyweds with flowers.

    "We are praying for rains. We need rains, hope gods are pleased and it rains in Bangalore today," Manjual, one of the guests, told Reuters news agency.

    Only at one point did the groom get restless: when his attendant tied the holy threads around his hind and fore legs.

    The guests, each of whom contributed to the marriage expenses, were later treated to a traditional meal at the temple.

    Before leaving the ceremony, everybody was hopeful it would start raining soon.

    Meanwhile, the BBC's weather forecast suggested unbroken sunshine in Bangalore until Sunday at the earliest.
