ONE OF MY IDOLS
After setting a world record for being the oldest person to kitesurf across the English Channel last year, Sir Richard Branson added more bragging rights to his book of accomplishments on Sunday, leading 317 other kitesurfers in a one-mile course — another record-breaking feat.
The showy business tycoon who has built a career out of pushing the envelope and pulling off elaborate, headline catching PR stunts took to the waves near Portsmouth over the weekend along with 317 other kitesurfers, sailing a one-mile course that set off from Hayling Island beach near Portsmouth.
With a Guinness World Record adjudicator present, the Virgin Kitesurf Armada set sail in the largest parade of kitesurfers to cross one mile (1.6 km).
To keep the record live, there had to be at least one kitesurfer sailing the one-mile course.
Four-time kitesurfing champion Steph Bridge also attended the event in an effort to promote the sport and push for its entry as an Olympic sport.
Proceeds of the event went to support three charities, Virgin Unite, Snow-Camp, which reaches out to inner city kids with winter sports, and the RNLI, a lifeguarding program.
I TRIED TO TELL ALL YOU BLACKBERRY USERS,I SAW THIS COMING
BlackBerry to lay off 4,500 employees
BlackBerry says it will lay off 4,500 employees, or 40 percent of its global workforce, as it reports a nearly $1 billion second-quarter loss in a surprise early release of earnings results.
The stock dropped 19 percent to $8.50 after reopening for trading. Shares had been halted pending the news.
BlackBerry had been scheduled to release earnings next week. But the Canadian company said late Friday afternoon it expects a loss of about $950 million to $995 million for the quarter, including a massive inventory charge due to increasing market competition.
The BlackBerry, pioneered in 1999, was the dominant smartphone for on-the-go business people and other customers before Apple debuted the iPhone in 2007. Since then, BlackBerry Ltd. has been hammered by competition from the iPhone as well as Android-based rivals like Samsung.

Despite only having a 1.7-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, thanks to its prodigious use of carbon fiber and weight-saving Formula One-derived composite materials in its construction process, the car is capable of going from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 160mph.
However, it’s in areas of horsepower and torque where the car really impresses, setting new benchmarks in each for such a small engine — 240bhp at 6,000 rpm (that works out to 137hp per liter and a power-to-weight ratio of 268bhp per tonne) and 350Nm or 258 lb ft of torque, which Alfa claims is available across the rev band so that power is always on tap. Most impressively, it manages all of this while returning 41.5mpg and CO2 emissions of just 157g/km.
Then thanks to a combination of new brakes, McPherson suspension arrangement, a paddle-shift gearbox, good weight distribution and the fact that the 4C is only 2 meters wide and less than 4 meters long, it is going to be nimble enough to pilot around city streets and car parks as well as racetracks.
