India's open water swimmer Bhakti Sharma has set a world record by swimming 1.4 miles in 52 minutes in one degree temperature at Antarctic Ocean. She has bettered the earlier record of British open water swimmer Lewis Pugh and American swimmer Lynne Cox, a release said. Bhakti is now the youngest in the world and the first Asian girl to have achieved this feat. Akhilesh Joshi, the chief executive officer of Hindustan Zinc, said, "We are very proud of Bhakti Sharma for this rare achievement. Whole country is proud of her and particularly girls who would be seeing her as inspiration to join swimming. Her achievement only proves that given the right support and opportunities India can produce many such talents." Bhakti, a recipient of Tenzing Norgay National Adventure Award in 2010, expressed her gratefulness towards Udaipur-based Hindustan Zinc for supporting her when she had lost hope for her mission and needed the support. She has been pursuing open water swimming for the last 10 years. She has now conquered all the five oceans of the world.

Here are GTN's top 9 open water swim skills for beginners. Open water swimming can be a bit daunting for beginner triathletes however, with these skills, you can learn to love the freedom of swimming outdoors! Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/15 Open water swimming can be a bit daunting for new triathletes but once you take the plunge we guarantee you'll enjoy it! Mark and Heather are at the BEST Swim Centre in Mallorca and bring your their top tips for beginning your open water journey. Here are their 9 top tips for open water swimming: - Equipment: Buy a wetsuit that fits well to prevent fighting it or carrying lots of water in it. Make sure you can be seen with a bright coloured hat and ensure you have a good set of googles to be able to see the course and any dangers ahead. - Safety: This is paramount in open water swimming. Swim at a proper venue with water testing and make sure to swim with someone else or have a spotter on the side. Also, familiarise yourself with the course entry and exit point before jumping in. - Warm up: It can be difficult to warm up when the water is cold so limbering up before can make a big difference. A few press ups and arm swings will suffice. - Climatization: Sit on the edge with your feet in the water and splash some on your face to get your body used to the cold water. - Lie on your back: Enter the water slowly to allow your body to get used to the temperature change. A good way to relax is lie on your back and take several deep breaths to control your breathing. - Rescue: Should you find yourself in difficulty in deep water then roll on to your back and wave to catch someone attention. - Confidence: Build confidence by taking it one step at a time. Step one is to fully submerge whilst blowing bubbles do ensure you can control your breathing. - Start slowly: Don't rush in to a long swim, especially if you are new to the open water. Swim to a buoy a short distance away, then take a break before continuing. - Finally.... ENJOY IT!

Check out these top unexplained mysteries of the deep ocean. From strange sounds captured in the deep sea by hydrophones such as the bloop, the train, and julia, to gigantic whirlpools, biggest underwater falls and the milky bioluminescent sea phenomenon. Are deep sea monsters living deep in the ocean?

Underwater Falls Voted one of the most beautiful places on Earth, Mauritius is an island nation in the Indian Ocean. On the Southwestern tip of the island you will find a fascinating illusion. When viewed from above, a runoff of sand and silt deposits creates the impression of an ‘underwater waterfall’. But did you know there are actually real underwater waterfalls? Seven waterfalls have been discovered deep underwater. The tallest waterfall on Earth is not Angel Falls, but an underwater waterfall called Denmark Strait Cataract located in the Atlantic ocean between Greenland and Iceland. It is the world's highest underwater waterfall, with water falling almost 11,500 feet and carries 175 million cubic feet of water per second. It is caused due to temperature differences in the water on either side of the strait. Cold water is denser than warm water. And the eastern side of the strait is a lot colder than the western side. So when the waters meet, the cold water sinks below the warmer water, creating a strong downward flow, which is considered a waterfall. And it's not just waterfalls that are under the ocean. There are huge secret rivers, complete with rapids and islands that flow down the sea shelves out into the desert plains creating river banks and flood plains. Here's a picture of the river Cenote Angelita under the sea of Mexico. These salty rivers carry sediments and minerals and could be vital in sustaining life. The world's sixth largest river, by volume, is below the Black Sea. It is 350 times larger than the Thames and 150 feet deep in places. 8. Milky Sea Phenomenon For over 400 years, sailors told tales of a mysterious event that takes place far out in the Indian Ocean. They would come across miles and miles of milky glowing waters, sometimes stretching as far as the eye could see. In 2005, a group of scientists led by Dr. Steven Miller of the Naval Research Laboratory in Monterey, Calif., decided to take a closer look at this story to see if it was true. They managed to register about 235 observations and get a satellite image that showed an area of low lighting in the Indian Ocean about the size of Connecticut. Their samples that they collected indicated the presence of a type of bioluminescent bacteria in the water, known as Vibrio harveyi. This isn't the same kind of bacteria that you might see in waves that use their bright light to ward off predators. This bioluminescent bacteria may actually use light to attract fish, since its favorite place to live is inside a fish's gut. Scientists' guess is that since they only emit a very faint light on their own, they have to gather together to make an impact. Their collective glow can grow to massive, milky sea proportions when their numbers swell to a huge amount -- think 40 billion trillion. They may also congregate to colonize algae. Sounds like a party! It is still only a guess since Dr. Miller and his colleagues haven't determined exactly what causes the bacteria to gather. 7. Unexplained sounds Of course dark, creepy fog can make you jump at anything that goes bump in the night. But what about things that go "bloop" in the sea? With names like "The Bloop," "Train" and "Julia," the sounds have been captured by hydrophones, or underwater microphones, monitored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The decidedly nonspooky nicknames for these sounds do little to dispel the mystery surrounding them. In 1997, NOAA hydrophones 3,000 miles apart picked up one of the loudest sounds ever recorded off the southern coast of South America: the Bloop (which sounds exactly like its name, a bloop). The Bloop mimics marine animal sounds in some ways, but if it were some kind of sea creature it would have to be almost the size of the Eiffel tower for that sound to be heard from 3,000 miles away. So what made the sound? It's anyone's guess but deep-sea monsters aside, NOAA holds the most likely explanation for The Bloop is that it was the sound of a large iceberg fracturing. Sure.... Another weird noise known as Julia sounds almost like someone whining or maybe even singing under water. The eastern equatorial Pacific autonomous array (the fancy name for the network of hydrophones) picked up this strange sound that lasted 15 seconds in 1999.

Many deep-sea animals such as anglerfish use parts of their body as lures to attract prey. Some deep-sea squids may use this strategy as well. This video from MBARI's remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) shows a type of deep-sea squid that appears to use a different method to lure prey—its tentacle tips flap and flutter as if swimming on their own. Researchers hypothesize that the motion of these tentacle tips may induce small shrimp and other animals to approach within reach of the squid's arms. For more information see MBARI's news release: http://www.mbari.org/news/news_releases/2013/squid-tentacles/grimalditeuthis-release.html Original research paper: Hoving, Zeidberg, Benfield, Bush, Robison & Vecchione. 2013.

Supplementary video from the paper "Whole-body endothermy in a mesopelagic fish, the opah, Lampris guttatus" authored by Nicholas C. Wegner, Owyn E. Snodgrass, Heidi Dewar, John R. Hyde, published in Science 15 May 2015: Vol. 348 no. 6236 pp. 786-789 DOI: 10.1126/science.aaa8902 http://dx.doi.org/10.1126/science.aaa8902 Underwater footage of pectoral-fin swimming in the opah, Lampris guttatus, during capture and prior to tagging for in vivo pectoral muscle temperature measurement. Abstract: Endothermy (the metabolic production and retention of heat to warm body temperature above ambient) enhances physiological function, and whole-body endothermy generally sets mammals and birds apart from other animals. Here, we describe a whole-body form of endothermy in a fish, the opah (Lampris guttatus), that produces heat through the constant “flapping” of wing-like pectoral fins and minimizes heat loss through a series of counter-current heat exchangers within its gills. Unlike other fish, opah distribute warmed blood throughout the body, including to the heart, enhancing physiological performance and buffering internal organ function while foraging in the cold, nutrient-rich waters below the ocean thermocline.

Not likely. Sooner or later, you're going to be swimming in rough water. But don't fret: An ability to manage waves can ultimately be an advantage. If you're adept at battling waves, it could be a significant upper hand against less wave-resilient opponents. And, if you ever need to breaststroke away from a shipwreck, a healthy ability to navigate stormy seas could end up being a real lifesaver. To start, you're going to need to know how to breathe. In the open water, however, an incorrect breathing style could quickly leave you with a stomach full of salt water. That's why open water swimmers need to coordinate breathing with the conditions. If waves are coming in from your right, breathe left. If blinding sun is coming in from your left, breathe right. This might be trickier than you think, especially if you've spent years in the pool breathing to only one side. Before you tackle rough water, go to a pool and swim a few laps while breathing only on the side that you find least comfortable [source: Murphy]. In rough weather, waves, wind and spray also mean that you'll have less of a window in which to pull in air -- so be sure to make every breath count. Right before surfacing, exhale all of the air in your lungs. That way, when you come up for air, you'll be able to breathe in more quickly. Sometimes, instead of battling the waves, it pays to swim under them. If you get hit by a particularly hard wave, you may be forced to dog paddle to recover, wasting valuable energy in the process. By ducking under those waves like a dolphin, you'll avoid getting jostled often and your rough water swims will be much less frustrating [source: Keppeler]. If a wave is relatively small, save energy by simply hopping over it. Or, if it's small enough that you can just crash through it, simply turn sideways and hit the wave with your hip or shoulder. Do it properly, and the wave will simply pass around you. Warming up before a swim is a good idea in all weather conditions, but it's especially important in rough seas. Get in, splash around, try a test sighting anything that will give you a good idea of water temperature, visibility and current. That way, long before the starting gun goes off, you'll be able to adjust your goggles, suit and swim plan as necessary.

Thousands of people braved the cold on Saturday to take a plunge in the chilly waters of the North Sea. An estimated 6,000 people ran across the sand and into the water in Ostende, Belgium, to celebrate the new year. The Annual New Year's plunge was cancelled last year because of unsafe weather conditions, but on Saturday, the air was mild, reaching 10 degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit). Nevertheless, it was not an ideal swimming temperature. Tanee Grade is no stranger to cold water but was still feeling the effects. "We are divers so actually we are used to this.

Of course, there are a ton of reasons to go for an adventure far under the surface of the ocean, but do you know all of the potential risks that accompany each and every dive? If you didn’t, here they are, these are the 15 Dangers Of Deep Sea Diving. #7 - Nitrogen Narcosis Nitrogen Narcosis is yet another serious issue divers need to be aware of. When the human body gets too much nitrogen in their system, it creates a kind of narcotic effect. It would feel like the nitrous-oxide gas given to you at the dentist’s office. While you might enjoy that woozy feeling when you’re inside a dentist’s office on dry land, this is not a feeling you would want to experience when you are far under water. Nitrogen narcosis damages both sensory perception and judgment making each decision the affected diver makes a potentially dire one. #6 - Gaps In Actual Experience If you are an experienced diver, you know that there is a rule that states you have to take a refresher course every six months that you haven’t been actively diving. Although you, being a diver, might laugh because you believe that the course really isn’t all that big of a deal, it really is very important. After not diving for just a few months, some of the very minor but incredibly important and vital details of the preparation or procedure of diving could be forgotten. Depending on which part you forget, that tiny sliver of information might just cost you your life. Just take the refresher course to get back in the loop. #5 - Losing Your “Buddy” It might seem silly but the “Buddy System” is really important when it comes to dives and swimming out in the ocean. If you have a buddy, there should always be at least one other person in the water that is concerned with your safety and survival. The ocean is not a place to lose your buddy. #4 - “The Bends” Decompression sickness is most often referred to as “the bends” and it is caused by increased pressure which makes the tissues in a body absorb more nitrogen. When that fierce pressure is suddenly reduced, the extra nitrogen can form tiny nitrogen bubbles that can kill. When deep sea divers want to return to the ocean’s surface, they must do so in distinct stages that are carefully monitored so that they can best control the rate of which the absorbed nitrogen is released. The bends can range from the affected having aching joints, a creepy skin rash, or paralysis and even possibly death. Do NOT go diving without being properly trained. It is not a hobby that you can just pick up an afternoon. #3 - Not Wearing Adequate Protection We aren’t just talking about wearing durable gloves while checking out a sunken shipwreck, although if you do get cut without wearing protective gloves, you can get tetanus, which doesn’t sound like fun. We’re talking about wearing gear that is suited to the climate and temperatures of the weather and the ocean you are diving into. When you are wearing a short wetsuit, don’t go play around in some coral where you can easily get cut up, which could lead to even more danger. Also, the temperature of the water gets colder the further down you get, so make sure you dress appropriately, it’s not like you can just put on a jacket once you’re underwater. #2 - Oxygen Toxicity Oxygen toxicity happens only when the person is deep sea diving and goes more than 135 feet below the surface. Just like nitrogen, which caused a lot of problems for divers earlier, the body absorbs more oxygen when the body finds itself underneath increased water pressure. Experienced divers know how to deal with the increase of oxygen but as the pressure and depth increase, the body absorbs more and more oxygen and too much can become toxic. The symptoms start with tunnel vision and nausea and then switch to loss of consciousness and seizures. If either one of the last things happens while you’re underwater, you’re most likely never making it to the surface again. #1 - Mask Squeeze The woman in this picture looks like she is about to start bleeding from her eyeballs which is a rather frightening thing to see. However, she isn’t a lead role in an up and coming horror film, she’s suffering from a diver’s condition called “mask squeeze.” When the pressure of the air inside the mask isn’t equalized correctly, the outside pressure causes the scuba mask to be pushed on the diver’s face resulting in this scary painful look. The small blood vessels surrounding and in the eyes burst, which leads to the bloody eyeballs you see here. This is not the look she was going for, we’re sure of that.

Temparature outside was 91f and then it went down to 67-69f for a few days, and I decided dont waste my days. Temparature of the ocean even cooler then outside by about 10f. When I came out from the ocean, it was bunch of people, who were standing and watching, they all applauded. One lady told me that I must be not from here, because I was the only one guy who was brave enough and swim for 10 minutes with 3 deep dives under the water. Recorded with my Iphone 3gs, because I forgot to take my camera.I dont like when somebody else taking my photos or videos, so I like to take them myself. Maybe because I am an artist and photographer myself, and not satisfied when somebody takes ugly images or videos of myself. Anyways, just some update. Bunch of stuff is coming. Good luck and peace to all my people.
Time to try out our wetsuits in the freezing cold water at the apartment pool. In preparation for our trip to Florida, Elizabeth and Dad slip on their brand new wetsuits and jump into freezing cold water. Temperatures as low as 55 degrees Ferinhiet (15 degrees Celsius). The suits worked great but our hand, feet, and face were still pretty cold. Fortunately, they had a lovely hot tub we could warm up in. Jonathan Bird, here we come!

In Malaysia there is an island known for more sea turtles than virtually anywhere on Earth. Jonathan visits this amazing ecosystem to learn about the life cycle of sea turtles. He is surprised to discover an amazingly complex and competitive environment. This is an HD upload of a previously released segment. ********************************************************************** If you like Jonathan Bird's Blue World, don't forget to subscribe! You can join us on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/BlueWorldTV Twitter https://twitter.com/BlueWorld_TV Instagram @blueworldtv Web: http://www.blueworldTV.com ********************************************************************** We head out towards the reefs of Sipadan island. This island is so small that you can walk all the way around it on the beach in an hour. Yet, it has a huge population of sea turtles. As the school of fish swims away, I spot my first sea turtle—a Green sea turtle swimming over the reef. It wasn’t hard because they’re everywhere. Some are swimming around, while others are napping on and in the reef. Sea turtles actually sleep underwater while holding their breath. A sea turtle can easily hold its breath over an hour! A few hundred feet away, I find a Hawksbill sea turtle munching on the reef. She is plucking out tasty sponges and invertebrates that hide in the coral, rather than eat the coral itself. It takes a tough stomach to digest this stuff. As we circle the island, I can see the tracks left in the sand by females that have climbed the beach to lay their eggs. It all starts when a male, identified by his long tail, catches up with a cooperative female and courts her. From the surface, I see the action and I prepare to film it. The mating has begun, and I quietly approach to film the action. Mating is not easy for the female sea turtle. She must swim—and rise to breathe—for both of them. The male's long tail holds the female and fertilizes the eggs, while claws on his front flippers give him the ability to grasp the female's shell. The commotion doesn't go unnoticed by other males in the area. They flock to the mating pair, which have drifted away from the reef. Eventually, no less than four additional male turtles arrive to challenge the suitor. They all try the same techniques and it is starting to wear him down. Meanwhile the female is near exhaustion. The male is only struggling to hold on….the female is struggling to survive. Hours later, the male has outlasted his rivals. He fertilizes the female's eggs and with luck his genes will continue on. As if her job weren't hard enough already, the female now faces another tremendous task--to lay the eggs—but it must wait until nightfall. After the sun sets, I head to the beach in total darkness. The females come ashore and lay their eggs in the sand. I have found a turtle hauling herself out of the water, painstakingly clawing her way up the beach to high ground. Although sea turtles live their entire lives in the ocean, they lay their eggs in a nest on the beach. After the sea turtle reaches an area well above the high tide line, she begins to throw sand around to create a pit. She's out of her element and vulnerable. The slightest sound or light would frighten her back into the water. She must stop frequently to catch her breath. Her crushing weight on land literally asphyxiates her. She begins to dig a hole about 3 feet deep with her rear flippers. The hole doesn't just protect the eggs from predators. The sex of the baby turtles is a function of the incubation temperature. A shallow nest baking in the sun will be too warm and all the babies will be female. A deep one will be too cold and the babies will all be male. Digging to the right depth insures a good mix of males and females. At last she begins to lay as many as 100 squishy eggs about the size of ping pong balls into the nest. In 2 months, these eggs will hatch and the baby turtles will emerge. After she has finished laying her eggs, she carefully fills in the hole. Then she cleverly disguises the exact location of the nest by flinging some sand around. After two hours of effort, she plods her way laboriously back to the sea, completely exhausted. Two months later, newly hatched sea turtles race to the sea. Each baby turtle must rush past a gauntlet of predators from land, sky and sea to reach the open ocean. Odds are, only one of these baby sea turtles will survive. On their journey, the sea turtles must fight their way through the surf, swim across the shallows and then make their way to the open ocean, away from predators on the reef. They won’t return to their home on the reef until they are large enough to be safe—about the size of a dinner plate. It’s a long and perilous journey but if this sea turtle survives, it may go on to live over a hundred years.

I made a return to Dublin's annual Christmas Day tradition of swimming in the Irish Sea, again this time at the Forty Foot in Sandycove. It wasn't a bright and sunny day like in 2014: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FJU1vwlZPA but it was a calm morning on the Irish Sea, by 10am there were already hundreds of people there and the place was pretty much full. Last time I was filming on a Garmin VIRB, this time it's the GoPro Hero 7 Black, it is waterproof so no need for a special housing. Two dips into the cold water, just like last time and plenty of footage of swimmers jumping in and the atmosphere in the Forty Foot on Christmas morning. Overheard from a regular swimmer that it was colder than usual in the water, that might have been heightened by the high air temperature. People swim at the Forty Foot and other places right around Ireland every day of the year, Christmas Day is when the big numbers come out and charities do some collecting for various good causes. https://panoramicireland.com Enjoy the view.

Subscribe to our channel! rupt.ly/subscribe Thousands of people flocked to The Hague's Scheveningen beach to usher in the new year with a polar dive on Tuesday. Revellers gathered at the beach, lining up along the sand, many wearing elaborate costumes. Due to the cold temperatures, people had to keep moving to stay warm, with many breaking into dance. The dive was scheduled at noon, but many could not wait and broke through the barrier early in order to swim in the North Sea, which has an average temperature of six degrees Celsius (64°F).

WEBSITE: http://www.swimmingpoollearning.com/ YouTube Video Index -- A list of all of my videos: http://poolmandave.blogspot.com/2014/03/swimming-pool-tips-reviews-how-to-video.html In this video I dispel some commonly held Myths about a salt Water Pool. Often referred to as Salt Water Generators. There are several videos on YouTube on this subject so I decided to weigh in myself. One-third of my pool route -- roughly 35 pools are Salt Water Pools. So I have lots of practical real world experience with salt pools. My personal pool is also a salt pool and has been for the past nine years. Some of the benefits are: A good chlorine level all of the time. Softer water and no chemical smells. You get away from handling chemicals that are known carcinogens. Makes maintaining your pool much easier. Salt Water Generators are reliable and easy to operate (most of them are reliable). Eliminates the need for shocking your pool. Most Salt water Generators will have a Super Chlorinate mode. Some of the drawbacks: Higher cost of maintaining your pool. A slight learning curve. Some cities restrict draining a salt water pool. PH will constantly rise in a salt pool. Cannot be installed in a pool with copper pipes. So after watching the video I hope you feel more confident about making a more informed decision if a salt water generator is right for you or not. If you have questions or need help picking out the right salt system you can comment here or contact me on my website and I will further assist you.

Sea lions are incredibly skilled hunters, able to hold their breath and dive for long periods while on the hunt for fish, octopus, and eels. They are seen frequently on the beaches, around the rocks near shore, and even in the shallows. But it is rare to encounter them 50 feet below the waves. Imagine the surprise of these divers as they explore the walls off Kicker Rock in the Galapagos Islands when a colony of large sea lions rocketed past and through them. The first group of females actually passed beneath the divers, incredibly fast as they chased after fish. Hunting in a pack, you can easily see how these sea lions are accomplished at catching prey. They are far more agile in the water than they are on land. A large male followed close behind. Being much bolder and more confident, he swam in between the divers, having a close inspection of these curious creatures. This is an isolated area where humans are not common. It is likely that this sea lion has not seen scuba divers up close very often. Possibly recognizing them as human, he might have been equally surprised to see them at this depth. The divers were delighted with this encounter and they exchanged looks of astonishment at seeing them so far from the surface. The sea lions all continued on their way and they could be seen looking closely at the crevices along the rock wall as they swam, hoping for a chance at a meal. As the scuba divers continued along their route, they encountered a large group of Black Striped Salemas, small bait fish that congregate in giant schools. One of the sea lions had returned and was taking advantage of the distraction that the scuba divers created. She could be seen swimming around and through the bait ball, gobbling up as many as she could catch. Sea lions are delightful creatures, playful and cute, but to see them hunting with such skill was a reminder that they are also very capable predators. Nature has many sides and the opportunity to see this up close is unforgettable.

Climate change and shrinking sea ice is impacting polar bear populations and their ability to forage for food and to produce healthy cubs. BYU biology professor Blaine Griffen analyzed polar bear data from the U.S. Geological Survey and calculated the metabolic rate of polar bears for different activities. He found that it takes five times as much energy for a polar bear to swim than it does for a bear to walk. Since bears are being forced to swim to forage for food since they can't walk across sea ice, this is having a negative impact on the health of the bears and species survival. Special thanks to The U.S. Geological Survey, John Patrick Whiteman, George Durner, and Paul Laustsen for providing images and assistance. Additional video provided by Shutterstock. News Release from Brigham Young University (Author: Todd Hollingshead) One result of melting Arctic ice is that polar bears are forced to swim more often and further than ever to forage for food. New research by BYU biologist Blaine Griffen finds the increase in swimming could permanently affect polar bear populations, leading to smaller bears, reduced reproduction rates and even increased risk of death for the bears. “Bears can more than double their body weight during the springtime foraging season when they hunt seals on the ice,” Griffen said. “As the sea ice melts earlier and earlier, polar bears are forced to swim more and more, both in frequency and distance, to reach seal populations. The time they have to forage is getting cut short and this has huge energetic costs.” According to Griffen’s research, recently published in Polar Biology, it costs polar bears five times as much energy to swim as it does to walk the same distance. That cost became enormous in one case Griffen studied, where a female bear swam 687 kilometers over nine days: the bear lost 22 percent of its body weight and, worse, lost the nursing cub that had started the journey with her. “Their entire world is driven by energy,” Griffen said. “Anything that places that extra energetic strain on the bear will affect its ability to survive.” To determine how much energy polar bears use to swim, Griffen used previously recorded data on the core body temperature and the surrounding water temperature of a bear to estimate the total heat it would have to produce as it swims. Using additional data of a polar bear walking, Griffen was then able to use the relationship between heat production and metabolic rate to determine the metabolic rate of the swimming bear. “I basically confirmed what everyone thought: they’re good swimmers but they’re not very efficient swimmers,” he said. That increased energy output is already showing worrisome effects for two of the 19 polar bear populations observed in the Arctic: western Hudson Bay and southern Beaufort Sea. There, the body size of individual bears is getting smaller — they’re not growing as much because they have less energy — and the number of cubs being produced in litters is beginning to decrease. The end result is decreasing survival rates and smaller polar bear populations. The research is a stark reminder of how climate change can affect the life cycle of specific animal species. This is Griffen’s first publication on polar bears, but it has opened up a new collaboration with Salt Lake City’s Hogle Zoo, where Griffen hopes to work with Hope and Nora, the two new polar bears that arrived this year.

Some pools have the ability to instantly transport viewers to another time or another place. Here are 7 MOST INSANE POOLS you must TRY Before you DIE 7. Market Square Tower Pool One of the most amazing pools in the world is located on the roof of Market Square Tower in Houston Texas. Its main feature is a transparent bottom which seems to hang over the abyss at an altitude of 152 meters. Apparently, for some people, it’s not enough to just stand on the roof of a skyscraper, so now you can swim there. 6. La Jolla In every respect, the perfect island of La Jolla in the Fiji archipelago is a private location, and not everyone is welcome to visit. You will not find a transparent pool like this with a sandy bottom on any of the nearby hotels. Its design is unique. A 25-meter glass pool that is built into a 2,000 square meter Lagoon creating a multi-level spa system. 5. The Devil's Pool The Victoria Falls located on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia is one of the largest in the world. At its top those are peculiar creeks separated from the edge by a rock, this natural cavity is known as The Devil's pool. However, you can swim in this pool only from September to December during the drought season . in this period the water level in the river becomes so low that tourists can plunge into The Devil's pool without fear of accidentally slipping down because the height of the Victoria Falls reaches a hundred and eight meters. 4. Bendol (villa on the rocks) Only 8,000 people live in the French commune of Bendol, but it is in fact the busiest yacht pier on the Mediterranean coast. Just take a look at the famous villa on the rocks. Here the boundaries of space are blurred. The water element organically intertwines with home comfort and the wall of this cozy bedroom is the partition of a 28-meter pool with crystal-clear water. 3. The Red Pool ( The Library Hotel) Although at first glance, this pool may look to be filled with an unsavory substance, you won’t find any vampires lurking here. The library is a luxury hotel located on the sunny shores of the Cheweng Beach in Koh Samui, Thailand. It offers studios, suites and poolside villas for its guests to stay in. 2. San Alfonso Del Mar It may seem that the most unexpected place for a pool would be the shore of the Pacific Ocean. But nevertheless, the world's largest swimming pool is located right here in the Chilean resort of San Alfonso Del Mar. On the whole area of this pool, one can place more than a dozen mermaids. The pool is a kilometer in length and it holds 250,000 cubic meters of seawater which is maintained at a comfortable temperature of 26 degrees Celsius which is 9 more degrees than the ocean itself. 1. Swiss Alps It may seem that there can be no swimmers in the Swiss Alps. People go there to set records on the ski slopes and snowboarding, but the hotel Villa Hoeing offers the ability to discover a completely different Switzerland. In order not to freeze during this process of these are Swiss mountains, after all, you could instead immerse yourself in an outdoor panoramic swimming pool, where the temperature is maintained at 34 degrees Celsius in the winter.

The trendy enchantment of new Digha is the middle of the technological record established with the useful aid of the u. S . A .-wide Council of technology museums.
