A hoverboard rider recently soared into Guinness World Records after flying a record distance on the futuristic, flying skateboard.

Catalin Alexandru Duru, the inventor of the prototype hoverboard, traveled the length of two-and-a-half football fields (about 905 feet or 375 meters) to achieve the world record title before landing gently in the sparkling water of Quebec’s Lake Ouareau.

Duru reached a height of 16.4 feet (5 m), but the flying board is allegedly capable of much greater altitudes, said Duru, who told Guinness World Records that his machine could reach “scary heights.”

Nine officials of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), including two of its current vice presidents, were among 14 people indicted on Wednesday for racketeering conspiracy and corruption, the Department of Justice announced in a statement.

In addition to FIFA officials, a number of officials of other soccer governing bodies were named in the 47-count indictment for “racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering conspiracies, among other offenses, in connection with the defendants’ participation in a 24-year scheme to enrich themselves through the corruption of international soccer.”

The arrests come days ahead of Friday’s FIFA presidential elections, which will still go ahead. Current FIFA president, Sepp Blatter was not among those arrested and is expected to win his fifth term, The Independent reported.

3-Year-Old Boy Is Better At Pool Than Most Adults Are at Anything

Adam Wynne looks like a kid from a Pixar movie. He’s got curly red-hair, a cherubic face, and walks as if he’s in danger of tripping over his own feet. He will also totally wreck you in a game of pool.

Well technically, it’s Snooker, which is played on a larger table with more balls than Pool, so that means this kid is even more bad-ass. And before you go and think he’s part of some genetic experiment to produce super Irish Snooker players, get this: He’s never been trained to play the game – it’s all Adam.

It doesn’t matter that he grasps the cue with two hands like it’s a sippy cup, or has to stand on an upturned bucket to get a better view of the table, because the second Adam lines up his shot, he absolutely owns the felt.

‘Absolutely Massive’ Texas Flooding Leaves At Least 12 People Missing

Recovery teams were resuming the search early Tuesday for 12 people who are missing after a rain-swollen river in Central Texas carried a vacation home off its foundation, slamming it into a bridge downstream.

The hunt for the missing picked up after a holiday weekend of terrible storms that dumped record rainfall on the Plains and Midwest, caused major flooding and spawned tornadoes and killed at least eight people in Oklahoma and Texas. More than 1,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed in Texas, and thousands of residents are displaced.

Authorities were also searching for victims and assessing damage just across the Texas-Mexico border in Ciudad Acuna, where a tornado Monday killed 13 people and left at least five unaccounted for.

Bird Flu Spreading as Scientists Look Everywhere for Clues

Could it be blowing from farm to farm in the dirt? Could determined starlings and pigeons be carrying it into poultry houses on their feet? Is it spreading in feed, or being carried on truck tires?

Federal agriculture officials are looking everywhere they can think of for H5N2 bird flu, which has spread to poultry flocks in 14 states and killed or forced the slaughter of more than 39 million birds.

 Highly pathogenic avian influenza has never spread like this before in the United States, and it’s flummoxed the U.S. Department of Agriculture, farmers and scientists alike.

Karma has come back to a Sikh man who broke religious protocol to help a little boy at an accident scene in Auckland last week.

Harman Singh made international headlines when he took off his turban to cradle the head of Daejon Pahia, 6, who had been hit by a car.

Mr Singh, from India, is in Auckland studying a business course. He said he was overwhelmed with all the praise and didn’t think twice about helping the little boy.

What Fabien Cousteau learned from living underwater for 31 days

Ocean exploration has been the Cousteau family business for three generations. In this fascinating Q&A, aquanaut Fabien Cousteau discusses everything from why we need underwater cities to what it’s like to beat your grandfather’s world record.

In 1963, Jacques Cousteau lived for 30 days in an underwater laboratory positioned on the floor of the Red Sea, and set a world record in the process. This summer, his grandson Fabien Cousteau broke that record. The younger Cousteau lived for 31 days aboard the Aquarius, an underwater research laboratory nine miles off the coast of Florida. While he and his team conducted experiments —  they did three years worth of science in 31 says — and held virtual classroom sessions with students around the world, each moment of their adventure was captured on film. Lots of the footage can be found on the Mission 31 YouTube channel, and Cousteau is making a documentary about his Mission 31 experience.
