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!

http://www.saltonseawalk.com - Yes, you CAN swim in Salton Sea! As we hiked from Salt Creek Beach to Bombay Beach at Salton Sea, in the 107°F temperatures, we made several stops to cool down - and what better way to cool down at Salton Sea than to swim in the water! The bottom is very muddy (i lost my flipflop in the first 2 steps) and the water is very warm, probably about 80°F but in the high heat of the desert it's still very refreshing. The only problem is wading out far enough so the water is deep enough to actually swim. Our tip: don't drink the water. In the summer of 2015 we will be walking around the entire shoreline of Salton Sea. Follow along at www.SaltonSeaWalk.com and on Twitter @SaltonSeaWalk !

Thank you for subscribing and liking my videos http://www.youtube.com/user/whirlpoolhitman?feature=guide Be Awsome and follow on facebook... https://www.facebook.com/Whirlpoolhitman?skip_nax_wizard=true "Whirlpool" How to Swim in Rough Conditions It's windy and raining time to postpone the triathlon? 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.

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.

Swimming in Atlantic Ocean in November - 67f temp - just a little video from my vacation, to update you. I am about to swim in Key Biscayne, Florida in November 7,2010. 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.
Crystal River, Florida – Swimming in the middle of the winter when the temperature is at a record low in Florida is typically not the best idea of an adventure. But even with the tempertures sitting at a record low of 30 degrees, it is this time of the year when the height of the magic migration happens and over 400 West Indian Manatees migrate to Crystal River to seek refuge from the cold gulf waters. This is the best time of the year to swim, frolic and dance with these playful sea cows and I had the privilege of being part of this enchanting encounter.

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.

Winter swimming can be dangerous to people who are not used to swimming in very cold water. After submersion in cold water the cold shock response will occur, causing an uncontrollable gasp for air. This is followed by hyperventilation, a longer period of more rapid breathing. The gasp for air can cause a person to ingest water, which leads to drowning. As blood in the limbs is cooled and returns to the heart, this can cause fibrillation and consequently cardiac arrest. The cold shock response and cardiac arrest are the most common causes of death related to cold water immersion. Winter swimming isn't dangerous for healthy persons, but should be avoided by individuals with heart or respiratory diseases, obesity, high blood pressure and arrhythmia, as well as children and the elderly. Through conditioning, experienced winter swimmers have a greater resistance to effects of the cold shock response. Hypothermia poses a smaller risk. According to Tucker and Dugas, it takes more than approximately 30 minutes even in 0 °C water until the body temperature drops low enough for hypothermia to occur. Many people would probably be able to survive for almost an hour. There is no consensus on these figures however; according to different estimates a person can survive for 45 minutes in 0.3 °C water, but exhaustion or unconsciousness is expected to occur within 15 minutes. Consuming alcohol before winter swimming should be avoided because it speeds the onset and progression of hypothermia. Care should be taken when winter swimming in swimming pools and seas near the polar regions. The chlorine added to water in swimming pools and the salt in seawater allow the water to remain liquid at sub-zero temperatures. Swimming in such water is significantly more challenging and dangerous. The experienced winter swimmer Lewis Gordon Pugh swam near the North Pole in −1.7 °C (28.9 °F) water and suffered a frostbite injury in his fingers. It took him four months to regain sensation in his hands. Although there are risks associated with the practice, scientific studies also provide some evidence for the following health benefits. When compared to a control group on the profile of mood states rating scale, winter swimmers experience less stress and fatigue and more vigor. They report to have a better memory function, better mood and feel more energetic, active and brisk. Swimmers who suffer from rheumatism, fibromyalgia or asthma report that winter swimming relieves pain. Exercise in extreme cold promotes weight loss, since more fat is used to insulate the body from the low temperatures. There are indications that winter swimmers do not contract diseases as often as the general population. The incidence of infectious diseases affecting the upper respiratory tract is 40% lower among winter swimmers when compared to a control group. Short term exposure of the whole body to cold water produces oxidative stress, which makes winter swimmers develop improved antioxidative protection.

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. But now it's very cold," she said.

Many people say the Isle of Skye is the most beautiful part of Scotland, and it’s also a wild swimmer’s wet dream! Here's Calum's top spots for Wild Swimming The Allt Daraich, near Sligachan. A beautiful set of river pools, with something for everyone.You can chill out in the calm, clear water, there’s some fun jumps and some mad bastard jumps and all! Try and find where the river has made like a natural bathtub in the rock - it kinda looks like a jacuzzi. More of a cold tub than a hot tub though! If it’s salt you’re after, the only way is Talisker Bay! At sunset, it is amazing! You get this awesome light out to sea, and across the black and grey sand beach it shows up beautifully. Swim out to get a different view of this awesome place and if you’re lucky, you might catch some waves. You are now covered in salt, you are dirty, you need a wash! Come to the mighty waterfall at Lealt. At the bottom of the gorge there’s this awesome pool with some amazing jumping. Last but not least is the famous Fairy Pools, sitting right under the Cuillin. There’s a reason that this place in summer is as busy as Sauchiehall Street on a Saturday. The pools are stunning, they are way over-hyped though and they’re hoora cold all year round! Now you wanna come first light in the day to avoid all the punters getting their Instagram photos. You just don’t know where they’re pointing that zoom lens. Check out the crystal clear water, and if you’re hard enough to handle the cold, the best bit is a dive under an amazing natural arch that takes you from one pool to another.

Most people can’t imagine their vacation without some body of water nearby, be it a lake or an ocean. However, there are waters on our planet that can be deadly for revelers. If you aren’t satisfied with these, watch till the end for a savory bonus. TIMESTAMPS Great Blue Hole, Belize 0:52 Jacob’s Well, Texas, USA 1:26 Lake Michigan, USA 1:55 Lake Natron, Tanzania 2:29 Blue Hole, Dahab 3:04 Horseshoe Lake, USA 3:39 Boiling Lake, Dominica 4:05 Rio Tinto, Portugal/Spain 4:32 Drake Passage 5:10 Lake Kivu 5:46 Water creatures 6:11 SUMMARY - Tides turn the Great Blue Hole into a huge vortex that draws in everything on the surface, while ebbs make it spout huge columns of water. Despite all this, though, there still are many who want to see this hole because Jacques Cousteau himself called it one of the best places for diving on Earth. - This 30-foot deep natural well with crystal clear water is one of the most dangerous diving places in the world. At the bottom of Jacob’s Well, there are several entrances to a broad network of caves that many are unable to leave. - Lake Michigan is almost as notorious as the Bermuda Triangle because it’s over this lake that one of the most horrible air crashes in North America occurred for no logical reasons. - Lake Natron is one of the saltiest and most alkaline lakes on Earth, covered with a salt crust that’s sometimes colored red. The water temperature reaches 120°F (50°C) in certain places, which makes it, along with alkalinity, almost unfit for life. Only three kinds of fish live here, adapting to the extreme conditions. - The Blue Hole is possibly the most dangerous place for diving in the world as many divers have died in this 400-foot deep cave. Experienced divers say, though, that properly trained people with experience can dive without fear: the cause of death is usually nitrogen narcosis or insufficient air capacity upon ascent. - The carbon dioxide emitted from the fissures in the bottom of Horseshoe Lake is deadly for everything. The lake was the cause of death of four people, as well as trees growing 100 acres around it. The danger is announced by signs all around. - This mountain lake located eight hours from the ground may heat up to 198°F (92°C) due to hot air spurts from beneath the ground — they often neighbor with lava. Swimming in the lake is strictly prohibited even if there are no characteristic bubbles on its surface because boiling starts in a matter of seconds. - Fossil excavation that has been carried out at the head of the Tinto River for more than 3,000 years lead to it being saturated with copper, iron, and heavy metals, with the acidity leaping sky-high. - Lots of icebergs, wind speeds reaching 80 miles per hour, strong currents, and poor visibility are part of the ordeal that ships going through the Drake Passage must survive. - This seemingly peaceful lake keeps a deadly secret: there are layers of CO2 in it and 55 billion cubic meters of methane at the bottom. Even the slightest earthquake may cause a huge explosion capable of evaporating over 2 million people living around Kivu. BONUS: If you ever decide to swim in a river, lake, or just about any other body of water, make sure to check if it is safe to bathe there. Even places that attract tourists may well be infested with lampreys, hagfish, leeches, or other unpleasant fauna.

New figures released today show 162 people lost their lives on UK coasts in the last year, with adult men accounting for 74% of deaths and 77% over the past five years. • Only 3% of Brits know how to react if they unexpectedly fall into cold water • 40% would follow a potentially life-threatening instinct of immediately trying to swim • Coastal fatality figures released today show that 162 people lost their lives on UK coasts in 2016 We’re told to trust our instincts but today the RNLI is calling on the public to fight their instincts should they get into trouble in UK waters and, instead, remember one simple skill – floating. Sudden immersion in water any temperature below 15C puts people at severe risk of cold water shock. This triggers the instinctive but life-threatening reaction to gasp uncontrollably, thrash about and try to swim hard. This reaction is the worst thing to do and can quickly lead to drowning as it increases the chance of water entering the lungs, increases strain on the heart, cools the skin and reduces buoyancy by letting air escape from clothing. The RNLI’s advice is to float for around 60-to-90 seconds – the time it takes for the effects of the cold shock to pass and for you to regain control of your breathing. The recommended floating position is to lean back in the water and keep your airway clear while keeping calm to maintain breathing levels. You should then be in a better position to attempt to swim to safety or call for help. Only 3% of respondents in the RNLI’s research cited floating as the first action they would take if they fell in to cold water unexpectedly. 40% of respondents said their immediate reaction would be to swim, while 2% said they would panic – two of the instinctive responses the RNLI is urging people to fight. Others said they would remove clothing (4%); do nothing (3%); hold their breath (1%), and 4% said they would not know what to do. Coastal fatality figures released today by the RNLI show 162 people lost their lives at the UK coast in the last year alone, with adult men accounting for 74% of deaths and 77% over the past five years. With the charity’s national drowning campaign Respect the Water now entering its fourth year, this year the RNLI are calling on the public to fight their instincts. RNLI Coastal Safety Manager Ross Macleod says: ‘Through our Respect the Water campaign, we want to start a national conversation about water safety. We’re asking the public to remember this lifesaving advice, share with others and practice the survival skill of floating – it could be the difference between life and death. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION : • The fatality figures quoted are for water-related fatalities from accidents and natural causes in UK tidal waters. The figures for 2012–2016 are: 163, 167, 163, 168 and 162. • In 2016, swimming, jumping in and general leisure use of the water accounted for 25% (40) of the deaths, walking and running 20% (32); commercial use of the water 16% (26); sailing and boating 10% (17). Unknown activity was 16% (26). WEBLINKS: www.respectthewater.com #RespecttheWater

We can drink it, swim in it, grow food with it, and just plain live because of it. However, certain bodies of water are shockingly mean to us. Interacting with some lakes and rivers can hurt us, make us sick, or even kill us. Hello guys and today we're talking about 10 Bodies Of Water That Want You Dead #10. Boiling Lake Dominica Whoever named this place was certainly no fan of subtlety: Boiling Lake is exactly what it sounds like. Discovered in 1870 by two Englishmen, temperatures taken five years later ranged anywhere from 82 to 91.5 °C. #9. Citarum River West Java, Indonesia Here we have a body of water that can destroy us, but only because we screwed it up. Citarum River might well be the most polluted, trash-filled bit of water on the planet. #8. Rio Tinto Spain Rio Tinto is among the most acidic bodies of water around, with a pH balance of 2, at best. This means the Rio Tinto is as strong as stomach acid and is more than powerful enough to kill any fish that dare swim in it. #7. Lake Kivu Of DRC And Rwanda Three hundred meters (1,000 ft) below the surface of Lake Kivu lies a ticking time bomb. Over 250 cubic kilometers (60 cubic miles) of carbon dioxide, along with around 65 cubic kilometers (15 cubic miles) of methane gas, lurks under this body of water, enough to provide electricity to several countries. #6. The Rivers Of Johannesburg South Africa Catching E. coli is no fun under normal circumstances; now imagine you were literally swimming in the stuff. #5. Blackwater River Virginia, USA Too much water can be a bad thing, even if the water can't kill you otherwise. #4. Tualatin River Oregon, USA Oregon's Tualatin River is not the place to be if you want to take your dogs for a swim; close to a dozen pups die there every year from exposure to toxic blue-green algae. #3. Lake Karachay Russia Like a supermodel with a bomb strapped underneath her bodice, Russia's Lake Karachay is pristine, gorgeous, and incredibly deadly. It is, without question, the most radioactive body of water on the planet. #2. Belle Fourche River And South Dakota, USA Belle Fourche isn't poisonous, boiling, or radioactive. However, it is turbulent and wild, at least in one particular area. #1. Potomac River Maryland–West Virginia Border, USA Though the only thing most people know about the Potomac is that Washington, DC is situated on it, the legendary river can also be associated with something else: horrible deaths. Thank you for watching!!! Does anyone want to come over and swim with me? Write in comments what do you think of these bodies of water. Join our channel for more interesting videos!

turtle video. tortoise swimming like tortoise can fly.turtle video.kachua. SEA Aquarium Tunnel Singapore. sea turtle.कछुआ. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turtle) Turtles are reptiles of the order Testudines or Chelonii. characterised by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs and acting as a shield. "Turtle" may refer to the order as a whole (American English) or to fresh-water and sea-dwelling testudines (British English). The order Testudines includes both extant (living) and extinct species. The earliest known members of this group date from 157 million years ago, making turtles one of the oldest reptile groups and a more ancient group than snakes or crocodilians. Of the 327 known species alive today, some are highly endangered. Turtles are ectotherms—animals commonly called cold-blooded—meaning that their internal temperature varies according to the ambient environment. However, because of their high metabolic rate, leatherback sea turtles have a body temperature that is noticeably higher than that of the surrounding water. Turtles are classified as amniotes, along with other reptiles, birds, and mammals. Like other amniotes, turtles breathe air and do not lay eggs underwater, although many species live in or around water. Although many turtles spend large amounts of their lives underwater, all turtles and tortoises breathe air and must surface at regular intervals to refill their lungs. They can also spend much or all of their lives on dry land. Aquatic respiration in Australian freshwater turtles is currently being studied. Some species have large cloacal cavities that are lined with many finger-like projections. These projections, called papillae, have a rich blood supply and increase the surface area of the cloaca. The turtles can take up dissolved oxygen from the water using these papillae, in much the same way that fish use gills to respire. Like other reptiles, turtles lay eggs that are slightly soft and leathery. The eggs of the largest species are spherical while the eggs of the rest are elongated. Their albumen is white and contains a different protein from bird eggs, such that it will not coagulate when cooked. Turtle eggs prepared to eat consist mainly of yolk. In some species, temperature determines whether an egg develops into a male or a female: a higher temperature causes a female, a lower temperature causes a male. Large numbers of eggs are deposited in holes dug into mud or sand. They are then covered and left to incubate by themselves. Depending on the species, the eggs will typically take 70–120 days to hatch. When the turtles hatch, they squirm their way to the surface and head toward the water. There are no known species in which the mother cares for her young. Sea turtles lay their eggs on dry, sandy beaches. Immature sea turtles are not cared for by the adults. Turtles can take many years to reach breeding age, and in many cases, breed every few years rather than annually. Researchers have recently discovered a turtle's organs do not gradually break down or become less efficient over time, unlike most other animals. It was found that the liver, lungs, and kidneys of a centenarian turtle are virtually indistinguishable from those of its immature counterpart. This has inspired genetic researchers to begin examining the turtle genome for longevity genes. A group of turtles is known as a bale.

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.

Imagine doing an ocean swim in pristine subtropical waters over 90 species of coral and 500 species of fish? Imagine having the chance to swim every day for a week? Imagine sharing the experience with 15 ocean swimmers, including Australia’s most famous Ironman, Trevor Hendy? If you’re sick of that black line or the opaque water at suburban beaches, then please join our Lord Howe Island Ocean Swim Weeks from 9-13 March 2015 and 23-27 November 2015. Each day, we’ll swim 1.5 – 2km around the Lord Howe Island coastline and experience the beauty of a World Heritage marine environment. Some days we’ll swim over vibrant coral on the outer reef of the lagoon, while other days we’ll swim under 200 vertical metre cliffs or along some of the most perfect beaches in the world. You’ll see reef sharks, turtles, big schools of fish and thousands of seabirds. At your side will be the former World and Australian Ironman Champion, Trevor Hendy. Trevor was made a Member of the Order of Australia in 1996 for his services to surf lifesaving, and was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 2000. Along the way, he won medals at the World Championships in kayaking and won the Uncle Toby’s Super Series four times. Trevor now works as a high performance coach for elite athletes and guides people from all walks of life through his Bootcamp for the Soul. During the Ocean Swim Weeks, Trevor will provide tips on technique, training and motivation, and share some experiences and insights from the world of elite sport. When you’re not swimming, there will be plenty of time to enjoy the other activities that Lord Howe has to offer – surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, snorkelling, diving and walking, just to name a few. And they’re all world class. In the evening, you can relax with a sunset drink on our waterfront deck and enjoy a 4 course dinner with a lovely glass of wine. Sound like the right combination of exercise, relaxation and indulgence? Did we mention our day spa? You should plan to travel to Lord Howe on Sunday and depart on Saturday. The swims are non-competitive and can be easily completed by moderate to strong ocean swimmers. As a guide, you must be able to swim 1 km in less than 25 minutes. Package rates start from $1990 per person twin share (March 2015 - peak season) and $1780 per person twin share (November 2015), excluding airfares and applicable taxes. Availability is limited to 15 swimmers. For more details, please go to www.pinetrees.com.au Thanks to Andy Lloyd for his film-making talents – www.andylloydcreative.com – and a special thanks to Trevor Hendy and the lovely participants of our inaugural ocean swim week in November 2014!

The ocean is vast and full of things we as humans have yet to discover. Put on your scuba suits, this one’s one’s going to be quite the ride. Hopefully, strange noises, odd creatures, and mysterious structures don’t scare you. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 5. Colossal Squid Remember that small vampire squid? Yeah, take that and then make it like a million times bigger. Okay, not a million, but from this picture of one dried up on the shore, you understand. No to be confused with the giant squid, the colossal squid differs in that their tentacles have little hooks on them. They’re similar in length, though colossal squid are said to be stouter and heavier. These rare and terrifying creatures are a result of a phenomenon that is known as abyssal gigantism, where invertebrates in the deep sea are much larger in size so as to adapt to the smaller portions of food sources. Colossal squid have been seen to grow up to 46 ft long, weighing up to 1,650 pounds. Also, their eyes are said to be the biggest in the whole of the animal kingdom, their eyeballs measuring up to 11 inches in diameter. 4. USS Saratoga Admittedly, this photo looks terrifying, though do not be alarmed too much by the sight of it. What you see before you is the anchor hawse hole that was once part of the USS Saratoga. This gigantic artifact was discovered in the Bikini Atoll in Micronesia, were many a seacraft have met their demise. The anchor hawse hole has been sunken in the water for so long that it was naturally taken over by the aquatic environment, turning into something that is initially unrecognizable. 3. Mariana Trench Mystery Shark Oh, so you thought that that great white shark cannibal was the most of your worries as far as sharks go? Well think again, because something even more mysterious than that 16 foot shark eating shark is the Mariana Trench Mystery Shark. Footage of this elusive shark was apparently captured by marine biologists from Japan. The footage was concluded to have been taken from Suruga Bay in Japan. To give you some context, here’s how an average person measures up to more common sharks. And that biggest one is the mystery shark. There’s even been speculation that this shark may in fact be a megalodon, a species that’s said to have been extinct for millions of years. 2. The Bloop It might not be the most epic or mysterious sounding of titles, but its nomenclature doesn’t make it any less intriguing once you hear what The Bloop is. In the year 1997, a bloop, or low frequency underwater sound was detected in the south Pacific Ocean by the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The sound was said to be powerful, at and was at first likened to the sound icequakes that take place in icebergs make. About 5 years later, it was then said to be more similar to a marine animal--though this was again disputed and the ice theory was considered to be conclusive. But within the scramble to figure out what the sound was, there were people saying perhaps == was real after all. Underwater Waterfall This is definitely a real picture of a real place--not something out of a fantasy land. This is the underwater waterfall located in the Denmark Strait. It is the largest underwater waterfall in the world, and is also known as the Denmark Strait Cataract or the North Atlantic Circulation Pump. It can be found on the western side of the strait located in the Atlantic Ocean and is quite the sight to see indeed. It’s as if the earth was opened and is swallowing the surface world whole--which is a nice thought. The waterfall measures up to 11,500 ft deep and was formed due to varying temperatures between the eastern and western water masses. The flow rate is over 175 million cubic ft per second and is said to be the most voluminous water fall in the world.

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.

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.
