BTS Break Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Record, Claim 4 New Guinness World Records Titles

The Nickelodeon Triumph Brings BTS’ Guinness World Records  Count To four New Titles the first four months of 2022. 

South Korea band, BTS  have bettered their previous most Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards blimps won by a music group title after breaking the record for the second year in a row.

They secured the title during the 35th Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards ( also known as KCA), which took place in Santa Monica, California on 9 April 2022.

The Bangtan Boys conquered the KCA blimp as Favorite Music Group for the third year in a row – a win that KCA’s official Twitter account defined (winking at the record-breaking song) smooth like “Butter”.

After last year’s success, this win brought their number of blimps to six. 

The result didn’t only surpass BTS’ current record of five victories, but also broke the tie with the American pop and R&B girl group Fifth Harmony. This crowned BTS as the group with the highest number of KCA nods overall ever.

Moreover, taking home the accolade meant that the septet have tied with The Black Eyed Peas (US), One Direction (UK), and Fifth Harmony (US) in becoming a three-time Favorite Music Group winner.

Black Eyed Peas and One Direction lost the most Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards blimps won by a music group record title to BTS and Fifth Harmony last year. 

One Direction secured the award in 2013, 2014 and 2015, while Black Eyed Peas claimed it non-consecutively in 2007, 2010 and 2011. 

Since the group is currently performing in Las Vegas for their Permission To Dance on Stage world tour, BTS didn’t have the chance to attend the ceremony in person

However, they still thanked KCA and their fanbase through a pre-recorded video, dedicating the win to the ever-loyal ARMY and their continuous support.

“This award is for you, ARMY. We’ve been touched by your love and cheer,” said Jimin as the group collectively thanked the KCA and their fans. 

“We love you, ARMY,” added V.

But Favorite Music Group isn’t the only Kids’ Choice Awards category where BTS have triumphed in the last few years. 

From 2018 until today, the pop group have racked up several accolades in the following KCA categories: 

  • Favorite Global Music Star (2018 and 2021)
  • Favorite Music Group (2020, 2021 and 2022) 
  • Favorite Song for “Dynamite” (2021)

Pop icons, ambassadors for mental health campaigns and Hall of Famers for the Guinness World Records 2022 book, the Bangtan Boys have become a steady presence at Guinness World Records as they continuously push the boundaries of music and social media achievements. 

Only in the first months of 2022, after V’s Instagram success in December 2021, BTS as a group have already claimed three new Guinness World Records titles:

  • Most followers on Instagram for a music group
  • Most followers on Twitter for a music group
  • Most followers on TikTok for a music group

Their recent Nickelodeon triumph brings BTS’ record count to four new titles achieved in the first four months of 2022. 

Suga said upon receiving their latest KCA award that the band will “never, ever stop trying their best” and, most likely, won’t stop breaking records too.

Elon Musk Hopes to Test a Brain Implant in Humans Next Year

Neuralink, the startup Elon Musk founded to link our brains directly to computers, showed progress Wednesday in two medical areas: helping blind people to see and helping people with spinal cord injuries to walk or use their hands.

The company, one of five that Musk leads, is working on technology to drop thousands of electrodes thinner than a hair into the outer surface of human brains. Each electrode is a tiny wire connected to a battery-powered, remotely recharged, quarter-sized chip package that’s embedded into a spot that once held a circle of skull. The chip, called the N1, communicates wirelessly with the outside world.

The technology is still far from the initial medical uses, much less Musk’s ultimate vision of using Neuralink to hang out with superintelligent AIs. But the company is making significant progress, including applying with the Food and Drug Administration to begin human trials it hopes to start within six months, the company said at a “show and tell” event lasting more than two hours.

“Our goal will be to turn the lights on for someone who’s spent decades living in the dark,” said Neuralink researcher Dan Adams, who’s working on the effort to repackage camera data into a brain-compatible format and pipe it directly to the visual cortex.

Musk has some cred when it comes to revolutionary tech. His electric-vehicle company Tesla is profoundly changing cars and his SpaceX outfit is transforming space access with reusable rockets. His reputation as a tech genius has taken a beating, though, with the chaos at Twitter after his $44 billion acquisition. Musk’s Boring Company, which aims to revamp auto transportation with tunnels, also hasn’t lived up to its promises yet.

US President Joe Biden turns 80 Today: New Generation’ of Democratic Leaders Takes Control in Congress

President Joe Biden will celebrate his 80th birthday on Sunday, marking the first time a sitting president has reached that milestone while in office and fueling speculation about how his advancing age will affect his political future.

Biden — who was the oldest person to assume the presidency in January 2021, just 61 days after his 78th birthday — has said he intends to make another White House bid, even as his age-adjacent peers, including 82-year-old House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have made the decision to step away from leadership in order to make way for a younger generation.

“My intention is that I will run again. But I’m a great respecter of fate and this is ultimately a family decision. I think everybody wants me to run but we’re going to have discussions about it. And I don’t feel any hurry one way or the other to make that judgment.” he said last week, after helming what many say is the most successful midterm election for a sitting president’s party in decades, though noting that those results would not have an impact on his decision to run again.

Biden is the oldest person to serve as commander in chief in the nation’s history. Should he seek reelection in 2024 and win, the president would be 86 by the end of his second term. He has said he’ll talk over his future with his wife and the rest of his family over the holidays.

Biden has said he is hoping that he and his wife “get a little time to actually sneak away for a week around between Christmas and Thanksgiving” and that his decision to run for reelection will likely “be early next year we make that judgment.”
