Meet the woman who broke all the world record for longest fingernails

New Delhi : In an extensive history of fingernail-growers, record holders don’t get more iconic than Lee Redmond of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, who carefully nurtured her nails for 30 years and achieved the title for Longest fingernails on a pair of hands (female) ever.

Lee’s record-breaking story began in 1979, when her nails were less than 5 cm (2 in) long.
She decided to stop filing them and challenged herself to see how long they would grow before they started to bend out of shape.

But Lee’s nails never started to twist like other famously long fingernails. Instead, they grew out in huge extended arches, likely as a result of her careful daily manicure procedure.

Lee often said that for some reason she felt protected by her fingernails, as if they formed a shield around her. That shield was cracked in 2009.

Lee was a passenger in an SUV which lost control and slammed into the side of another vehicle, that in turn crashed into a third and a fourth car. Lee and her driver were immediately rushed to hospital.

The record holder survived major injuries, but sadly, her fingernails did not endure the accident.

Lee recalled the winding moment she realised that parts of her snapped nails were lying in front of her in the road.

At 76 years old, Lee is now retired and spends a great deal of time with her family, which now includes a lot of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

WhatsApp continues to be in the news for some wrong reasons. The messaging app has been attracting attention over the new privacy policy row. Now, phone numbers of WhatsApp web users have reportedly been found on Google Search. This comes a few days after it was reported that group chats have been exposed on Google Search. Users could simply search for the group on Google they want to join. The latest breach has leaked the phone number of WhatsApp’s web users, according to an report. Let’s take a look at the latest WhatsApp update issue to see if there are things you could do to avoid exposing your details online.

Details of WhatsApp’s Web users have leaked online. According to the a report, the messaging app has allegedly exposed the phone numbers of the web users on Google Search via indexing. This comes days after another report which stated that group chats have been exposed on Google Search.

Security researcher Rajshekhar Rajaria claims that the phone numbers of WhatsApp web users have appeared on Google Search. “If someone is using WhatsApp on a laptop or on an office PC, the mobile numbers are being indexed on Google Search. These are mobile numbers of individual users, not business numbers,” Rajaharia told IANS. The researcher also shared some screenshots with the publication.

WhatsApp, earlier today, announced that it is delaying its new policy by three months. The messaging app is doing so to help everyone understand its principles and the facts. “We’ve heard from so many people how much confusion there is around our recent update. There’s been a lot of misinformation causing concern and we want to help everyone understand our principles and the facts,” it said. The messaging app also announced that no one will have their account suspended or deleted on February 8.
