A Newcastle firm has just busted the American record for human/mattress toppling set in New York a fortnight ago.
The old record of 20 topples was well and truly busted when 400 of the jumbo sprung dominoes were felled in under four minutes.A Newcastle firm has just busted the American record for human/mattress toppling set... more
An online poll of 5,000 people for Travelodge claims that the accents from Newcastle were found to be the sexist, while stating this is good news for Cheryl Cole who's worried about her accent when she tries to promote her career in the US.
Other sexy Travelodge accents were Edinburgh, Belfast, Wakefield, Coventry, Cambridge, Hull, Sheffield, Swansea and Plymouth. With the least appealing being Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Bradford.
I'm guessing this poll will be good advertising for the budget hotel, but maybe not for customers from Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Bradford.An online poll of 5,000 people for Travelodge claims that the accents from Newcastle... more

Referee Rob Styles has agreed to look again at the dismissal of Newcastle defender Habib Beye after an incident-packed game at St James' Park.
Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear confirmed after his side's 2-2 draw with Manchester City that Rob Styles will study replays of the sending off of the Newcastle defender which saw Robinho handed a chance to take the lead from the penalty spot.
Television replays clearly showed that Beye had played the ball, and Kinnear wasted little time in speaking to Styles, who issued an apology after reviewing another penalty decision he gave against Bolton's Jlloyd Samuel during his side's 2-0 defeat at Manchester United last month.
Kinnear said: "I have been in to have a chat with him and he is prepared to have a look at it, and he will let me know what his views are in about four or five days.
Surely this is the start of television replays? Why don't they just have them during the game for these types of decisions. It wouldn't be too difficult to set up.Referee Rob Styles has agreed to look again at the dismissal of Newcastle defender... more

Newcastle United chairman looks like getting his wish of selling up as fast as possible.
A Nigerian consortium hoping to buy Newcastle United has apparently made a confirmed bid for the troubled club.
To make matters even more interesting, apparently they are not the only interested party (I know I was surprised).
Rumours that Mike Ashley received an email telling him he must send them a cheque immediately so that they can release the funds in their account are entirely without foundation.Newcastle United chairman looks like getting his wish of selling up as fast as... more
Nine English universities are to work together to ensure bright pupils from poorer homes take up degree courses.
Birmingham, Bristol, Leicester, King's College London, Leeds, Warwick, Newcastle, Southampton and Exeter universities will be "pooling" talent.
Under the scheme, students identified as able by one university's access programme would be able to apply to the other institutions taking part.
The initiative will begin for students applying to start degrees in 2010.
The institutions will continue with their own widening participation programmes, but will be formally able to recommend students to the other universities in the scheme.
Lesley Braiden, director of marketing and communications at Newcastle University, said the pooling scheme built on what was being done already.
"We're happy to be involved in this scheme - we're only too conscious of the fact that there are young people who have the potential for higher education study but have problems in their context," she said.
The scheme formalised universities' work to try to ensure these people did not "fall through the net", she added.
Professor Steve Smith, vice-chancellor of Exeter University, said the initiative reached out to students from the state school sector who got good A-level results but did not apply to the most selective universities.
"What this is about is universities as a group trying to work together to recognise each other's compact schemes," said Professor Smith.
Compact schemes are initiatives in which universities work with schools to provide master classes, summer schools or visits for students.
"If a student was on a compact scheme with Exeter and wanted to apply to another university, it could mean that university treating the student as if they had been involved in their own compact scheme."
Universities Secretary John Denham highlighted the initiative at the Labour Party conference in Manchester.
"No-ne should feel their ambitions are blocked," he told delegates.
"Ten year ago too many of our kids though 'university - not for me' now more than half say 'I want to go to university'.
"I am delighted that some of our most selective institutions are working together to make progress in widening participation."
The Russell Group, which represents the top research-intensive institutions, said it was fully committed to working with the government on these proposals.
The National Union of Students said they were "fantastic".
President Wes Streeting said there were too many universities "at the higher end of the market" that did not seem a realistic prospect for students from non-traditional backgrounds.
