Jamie Canhead Keeton has a super ability

Published

on

Canhead, aka Jamie Keeton, 48, of Kenosha, is a “has a super ability” who doesn’t mind sharing his ability with anyone who asks to see it.

Keeton can place anything with a solid, smooth surface on his head and hands and have it stick.

According to Keeton, the pores on his skin draw more air than regular pores and act as suction cups.

Keeton holds the Guinness world record for the number of cans stuck to one’s head, which is eight, and has turned his “super power” into a brand and business.

Q. What kind of things can you stick to your body?

A. I can stick cellphones to my body, a gallon of water, glass bottles. Glass, plastic and aluminum are the things I stick to me the most because they’re not magnetic. If I used glue, I’d have lot of scars from ripping things off.

Q. When did you realize that you had this ability?

A. At 7 years old things started sticking to me. My parents thought it was pine sap from climbing trees. I shaved my head when I was in my 20s, and I went to a ball game. It was real hot that day. I had a can of pop and was trying to cool my head down. All of a sudden they hit a home run, and I went up to grab it, missed the ball, and I was like, “Where’s my drink?” Everyone started laughing. Unbeknownst to me, whenever I (turned my head), my drink would fly out of the can. It took us almost five minutes to pull it off.

Q. What exactly is your ability, and is there anything else connected to it?

A. My doctor told me that I’m one of four people in the world. My skin pores suck in oxygen. Because of that, it generates body heat, which makes my body temperature stay at 100 degrees mostly all the time. It gave me extraordinary powers. I can squat almost 1,200 pounds 30 times straight. I can bench press 500 pounds 15 times straight. I got a third-degree burn, and it healed in a week and a half. I heal faster, and I don’t age like everyone else.

Q. When did you take your ability public?

A. At first I was nervous talking around people. I would do little things. Just going into a bar and friends would ask to do the thing I do. I went bigger and bigger. Finally I went to a Red Bull Flugtag, and a friend told me to put cans on my head. I did it, and all of a sudden the executives there asked if I would take pictures with the celebrities and the winners of the event. I said, “I don’t know.” Then they said, “We’ll pay you.” I went, “OK.” Since then I thought, “Wow, I can get paid to do this, to wear people’s stuff.”

Q. What television shows have you appeared on?

A. I’ve appeared on Ellen, Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon, James Corden. I’ve been on “Outrageous Acts of Science.” I’ve been on “20/20,” CNN, ABC News, TMZ. That’s the crazy part; when I go out to Las Angeles, TMZ follows me. The game show “To Tell the Truth,” we already filmed it. It’s going to be airing this month on ABC.

Q. How did you get into the Guinness Book of World Records?

A. That’s a funny story. I’m at a bar with one of my friends and kept getting this message from China. They said they were hosting the Guinness World Records and would like to know if I’d be interested in coming. I was like, “Yeah.” I found out they (China) was going to pay for me to be there.

Q. If someone out there discovers they have a talent or a “super power,” what advice would you give?

A. When I first started I didn’t want to be considered a freak. What really helped me

Lloyd Morrisett one of ‘Sesame Street’ launchers dies

Published

on

NEW YORK (AP) — Lloyd Morrisett, the co-creator of the beloved children’s education TV series “Sesame Street,” which uses empathy and fuzzy monsters like Abby Cadabby, Elmo and Cookie Monster to charm and teach generations around the world, has died. He was 93.

Morrisett’s death was announced Tuesday by Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit he helped establish under the name the Children’s Television Workshop. No cause of death was given.

In a statement, Sesame Workshop hailed Morrisett as a “wise, thoughtful, and above all kind leader” who was “constantly thinking about new ways” to educate.

Morrisett and Joan Ganz Cooney worked with Harvard University developmental psychologist Gerald Lesser to build the show’s unique approach to teaching that now reaches 120 million children. Legendary puppeteer Jim Henson supplied the critters.

“Sesame Street” is shown in more than 150 countries, has won 216 Emmys, 11 Grammys and in 2019 received the Kennedy Center Honor for lifetime artistic achievement, the first time a television program got the award (Big Bird strolled down the aisle and basically sat in Tom Hanks’ lap).

Born in 1929 in Oklahoma City, Morrisett initially trained to be a teacher with a background in psychology. He became an experimental educator, looking for new ways to educate children from less advantaged backgrounds. Morrisett received his bachelor’s at Oberlin College, did graduate work in psychology at UCLA, and earned his doctorate in experimental psychology at Yale University. He was an Oberlin trustee for many years and was chair of the board from 1975 to 1981.

Kipchoge Breaks Own Marathon World Record

Published

on

Double Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge has broken his own men’s marathon world record at Sunday’s race in Berlin.

The 37-year-old Kenyan crossed the line in a time of two hours, one minute and nine seconds, to beat by 30 seconds his previous best, set four years ago in the German capital city.

He had previously taken one minute 20 seconds off compatriot Dennis Kimetto’s 2014 record of 2:02.57 in Berlin.

Kipchoge had played down his chances of a world record in the build up.

“I am happy with my preparation and I think I was so fast because of the teamwork. Everything is down to teamwork,” he said.

“What motivates me is my family and I want to inspire young people. Sport unites people and that is what motivates me.”

On an overcast day in Berlin, Kipchoge, who has now won 15 of his 17 career marathons, ran the first half of the 26.2-mile race in 59 minutes, 51 seconds, prompting thoughts that he may become the first runner to break the two-hour mark in an official race

He has run a marathon in under two hours, in Vienna in 2019. However, that was not recognised as the official world record because it was not in open competition and he used a team of rotating pacemakers.

When asked whether he would attempt a sub-two hour run in Berlin next year, Kipchoge replied: “Let us plan for another day.

“I will celebrate this record and have to realise what happens. Just roll and see what happens.”

AICC: Egyptian Grandmasters Dominate Tourney

Published

on

With just two rounds left to play, top Nigerian chess players have dropped out in the ranking at the on-going African Individual Chess Championship holding at the Orchid Hotel in Lekki, Lagos.

Although Nigerian players showed shade of genius in the battle field as the tournament reached its climax on Sunday night, the Egyptian who are higher rated players dominate play with Adly Ahmed (African number 2) and Woman Grandmaster Wafa Shahenda leading the pack of other players in both Open and Women sections.

Both have consolidated their lead in the competition, as every win counts to games 4 and 5.

WGM Wafa trounced her Angolan opponent, Woman International Master Esperanca Caxita, in a Sicilian opening with black mostly dominating the game right from the middle play.

The Egyptian WGM is all but a massive one point ahead of the pack leading into the final rounds starting this morning.

While the Egyptian masters are dominating play, credit also goes to some Nigerians raising their heads to be countedNigeria Youth Games product, Onoja Iyefu Joy continues to show resilience and determination to earn her first chess title and create a record while at it.

She had on Saturday continued her fine run of form by scoring an entire point against Paulo Jemima to register the second position on the ranking table with 9 points. A win in the 7th round will help Joy secure a Woman International Master Title.

WIM (elect) Ofowino Toritsemuwa bettered her AICC Tunisia 2019 record, and she is bound to create a new one as she takes on WGM Wafa in the seventh round.

Toritsemuwa currently shares second place with her compatriot, Iyefu Onoja, both holding 4.5 points, hence making the 7th game point as crucial for the player.

In the Open section, 20-year-old Eyetonghan Denyefa Callistus is pulling his weight. He scored an outstanding 4.5 points after six games, but it is not about the score, somewhat the opponents; defeating 1 GM, 2 IMs, and three draws against two IMs and FM, the youngster will get his chance at GM Adly in the seventh round.

With a half point behind the tournament leader, African Number 1–GM AminBassem landed his second consecutive win after the drawn game with compatriot GM Ahmed Adly, demonstrating he still stands a chance to catch up and maybe win the tournament.

Bassem faces IM David Silva of Angola in the seventh round, who had to offer a draw to his opponent in the sixth round due to health issues. We hope he’s gotten his strength back for this crucial game.
