An Indonesian woman delivered a 19.2-pound (lb) 2-foot-long baby boy via Caesarean section on Monday at a public hospital in North Sumatra province .
UPDATE: The boy has been named Akbar Risuddin.
American babies usually weigh 7-9 pounds average during birth and now seems trivial. The 19.2 pound baby is now recorded as the largest baby born in Indonesia and just 4 pounds short of the world record holder, who is a 23 pound (lb) baby born in 1879.
A Filipino was one of the people who made Pixar’s latest movie “Up” a blockbuster hit.
Ricky Nierva was placed in charge of the movie’s entire visual look. “Up” is a box office hit already earning $250 million in the US. “Up” builds on Pixar’s reputation for making the world’s best animated features.
Nierva said Pixar stays on top because the company stresses the importance of ideas.
“They create an environment here that everybody can pitch their ideas…whether he be somebody that’s not even from the art department that has an idea. Staying open, staying positive, that’s the culture,” said Nierva.
Nierva is a native of San Diego. A young animator who, in 1997, was invited to join Pixar and his first work was for “Monster’s Inc.”

What is Google Wave? A “wave” is equal parts conversation and document, where people can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.
Here’s how it works: In Google Wave you create a wave and add people to it. Everyone on your wave can use richly formatted text, photos, gadgets, and even feeds from other sources on the web. They can insert a reply or edit the wave directly. It’s concurrent rich-text editing, where you see on your screen nearly instantly what your fellow collaborators are typing in your wave. That means Google Wave is just as well suited for quick messages as for persistent content — it allows for both collaboration and communication. You can also use “playback” to rewind the wave and see how it evolved.
