Naples, home of pizza, claims world record for longest margherita
Naples has reclaimed the world record for the longest pizza after more than 200 chefs rolled out and cooked a mile-long margherita on the waterfront of the doughy delicacy’s home city, AFP reports.
The record-breaking snack measured up at exactly 1,853.88 metres, smashing the previous record of 1,595.45 metres set at last year’s World Expo in Milan, Italy’s food and agriculture board Coldiretti said.

Hundreds of chefs from all over the world spent most of Wednesday assembling the pizza from raw ingredients of 2,000 kilogrammes of flour, 1,600kg of tomatoes, 2,000kg of mozzarella cheese, 200 litres of oil and 30kg of basil.

It was then baked in line with the city’s best tradition by wood-fire in five custom-made motorised ovens.

The record attempt had initially been scheduled for Sunday but had to be postponed because of bad weather in the southern Italian city.

It was organised to promote Italy’s bid to have the art of Neapolitan pizza-making recognized by Unesco as part of the world’s heritage, distinguishing it from what purists consider to be inferior forms found elsewhere

Carmelia Albu – Ombudsman of the Public Broadcaster „Teleradio-Moldova”, in the service of community

Ombudsman service is an independent source of information, explanation and analysis of the Public Broadcaster’s programs and adherence to European standards and practices of broadcasting programs’ development.

Ombudsman is a mediator who handles complaints between a televiewer /radio-listener or a group of people and the Broadcaster. Ombudsman replies to the questions of TV viewers and Radio-listeners, receives and reviews complaints from people.

“Ombudsman” was first used in its modern sense in 1809 when the Swedish Parliament established the office of Justitieombudsman, who was to look after citizens’ interests in their dealings with government.

Later, in 1988, a similar service was established in media in France. It was a real "explosion” that caused the appearance of similar services in other world countries.
