Alfa Corse , the racing department created by Alfa Romeo , having purchased the shares of the Scuderia Ferrari , entered a single 8C 2900B in the 1938 edition of the race of Le Mans . The car had a body coupe simplified but very innovative when cars racing at Le Mans were almost always open. The aerodynamic coupe was built by Touring. In 1987 , an Italian magazine tested the car in the wind tunnel at Pininfarina , which measured a Cx of 0.42, to 0.38 with air intakes closed. 13 The coupe had performed particularly well in the beginning, winning a distance of 160 km to the next car, which was a problem in the tires followed by a split valve. 14 This was the only time the coupe officially ran. After World War II , smaller racing came under private ownership. Then was exhibited at the Donington museum from the 60s before being added to the Alfa Romeo museum which now runs with him at many events.

Biggest Tibetan Mastiff in the World

Biggest Tibetan Mastiff in the World
A coal baron named Mr. Yang (as only his sir name has been revealed) from northern China has bought a dog for 1.5 million, that’s compatible to the price of a brand new Porsche 911. With this price a Red Tibetan Mastiff named “Big Splash” or Hong Dong, secured the top position on the list of most expensive dogs.
Biggest Tibetan Mastiff in the World
Size; Usually, a male Tibetan Mastiff stands at least 26 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs in the vicinity of 100 to 160 or more pounds; females are at least 24 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh 75 to 125 or more pounds
Biggest Tibetan Mastiff in the World
In 2008, the Tibetan Mastiff competed for the first time in the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.
A Chinese woman was reported to have spent more than 4 million yuan to buy an 18-month-old purebred male Tibetan Mastiff, which she named Yangtze No. 2. In March 2011, a red Tibetan mastiff was reported to have been sold to a 'coal baron' from northern China for 10 million yuan. There have been other similar reports of dogs sold for astronomical prices; however, most of these appear to be breeders' attempts to drive up the prices of their dogs. Photos of dogs shown on web sites are frequently photoshopped to exaggerate color intensity, size, and "bone". Buyers have reported getting their dogs home only to find that bathing removes both color and "hair extensions" from the coat.

Imran Khan's former wife, Jemima Khan, tweeted: "He's in hospital & conscious now."
Khan's party is not expected to win the election on 11 May but it could be a major partner in a coalition government.
He has promised to cut down on the tax evasion and corruption that have bled Pakistan's treasury dry.
Imaran Khan was part of the Pakistan team that won the cricket World Cup in 1992.

World's Biggest Snake Titanicboa


World's biggest snake
The world's biggest snake was a massive anaconda-like beast that slithered through steamy tropical rain forests about 60 million years ago, says a new study that describes the ancient giant.
World's Biggest Snake ever
Titanic Boa is the largest snake ever discovered. They were between 12 and 15 meters or 39 and 49 ft in length and weighed about 1,135 kg or 2,500 lbs with a diameter of 1 m or 40 in at the thickest part of the body. It is believed to have lived approximately 60 to 58 million years ago, in the Paleocene epoch. It was recently discovered in Columbia.
Fossils found in northeastern Colombia's Cerrejon coal mine indicate the reptile, dubbed Titanoboa cerrejonesis, was at least 42 feet (13 meters) long and weighed 2,500 pounds (1,135 kilograms).
"That's longer than a city bus and … heavier than a car," said lead study author Jason Head, a fossil-snake expert at the University of Toronto Mississauga in Canada and a research associate with the Smithsonian Institution.
Biggest Snake in the World
World's biggest snake ever recorded is Titanoboa Snake was 48 Feet Long and Weighed-2500-Pounds
Previously the biggest snake known was Gigantophis garstini, which was 36 to 38 feet (11 to 11.6 meters) long. That snake lived in North Africa about 40 million years ago.
Hans-Dieter Sues, associate director for research and collections at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, was not involved with the study but has seen the snake fossils.
Sues noted that humans would stand no chance against one of these giants, which killed their prey by slow suffocation.
"Given the sheer size—the sheer cross-section of that snake—it would be probably like one of those devices they use to crush old cars in a junkyard," Sues said.

In addition, the snake's heft indicates that it lived when the tropics were much warmer than they are today, a find that holds potential implications for theories of once and future climate change.

The Rarest Animal (creature) in the World

The rarest animal specie in the world

The Pinta Island tortoise is the rarest animal in the world. There is only one left on earth. His name is "Lonesome George".

The Pinta Island tortoise, also known as the Pinta giant tortoise, turtle or Isla Abingdon Island giant, was a subspecies of the Galapagos tortoise from Pinta native Ecuador.

Lonesome George is the last member of the Pinta Island subspecies of Galapagos tortoises. Lonesome George  was discovered in 1972, and led to the Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz. It 's about 90 to 100 years.

This ,rarest Animal (creature) in the World,subspecies was originally described in 1877 by German-born British herpetologist Albert G├╝nther, who named it Testudo abingdonii, a new species, in his book The Gigantic Land-tortoises (Living and Extinct) in the Collection of the British Museum

Currently, researchers are trying to George to mate. Have not found a female Pinta Island tortoise (if you found one, the reward is $ 10,000). Instead, they are trying to get him to mate with some other Galapagos tortoises a different subspecies. In this way, even if the children would not be purebred Pinta Island tortoise, at least some of the genes would be passed on to George.

So far, George has failed to produce any offspring. He lives with two females, but the eggs were hens were not viable and non-hatch,.
