Cubes of salt washed up on the shore in the Deadsea (Israel Dead sea, Deadsea) Dead sea (from wikipedia): also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east, and Palestine and Israel to the west. near Jerusalem. Its surface and shores are 427 metres (1,401 ft) below sea level, Earth's lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 306 m (1,004 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With 34.2% salinity (in 2011), it is also one of the world's saltiest bodies of water, though Lake Vanda in Antarctica (35%), Lake Assal (Djibouti) (34.8%), Lagoon Garabogazköl in the Caspian Sea (up to 35%) and some hypersaline ponds and lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica (such as Don Juan Pond (44%)) have reported higher salinities. It is 9.6 times as salty as the ocean. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 50 kilometres (31 mi) long and 15 kilometres (9 mi) wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley, and its main tributary is the Jordan River. The Dead Sea has attracted visitors from around the Mediterranean basin for thousands of years. Biblically, it was a place of refuge for King David. It was one of the world's first health resorts (for Herod the Great), and it has been the supplier of a wide variety of products, from balms for Egyptian mummification to potash for fertilizers. People also use the salt and the minerals from the Dead Sea to create cosmetics and herbal sachets. The Dead Sea seawater has a density of 1.240 kg/L, which makes swimming similar to floating." dead seas near Jerusalem halite phenomenon (from wikipedia): "commonly known as rock salt, is the mineral form of sodium chloride (NaCl). Halite forms isometric crystals. The mineral is typically colorless or white, but may also be light blue, dark blue, purple, pink, red, orange, yellow or gray depending on the amount and type of impurities. It commonly occurs with other evaporite deposit minerals such as several of the sulfates, halides, and borates" - more in wikipedia view more interesting videos like : "15 Craziest Natural Phenomena on Earth" "Ice Balls forming along Lake Michigan near Glen Arbor" "2014 WHAT IS GOING ON?

Theories That COULD Come True by 2050!
 
11:14
The year 2050 is only in 30 years and with the pace that technology is advancing, it’s interesting to see what life is going to be like and if it’s a world we want to live in. Population in some countries are expecting to rapidly increase, while others are gradually declining. Some countries might end up completely under and cease to exist. Will we finally make contact with ufo’s, or will the robots have already taken over by then. Here are theories that could come truee by 2050 Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 5. The Dead Sea Will Be Gone Another place that might not be around in the next 30 years is the dead sea.The dead sea makes up part of the border between Israel and Jordan and has quite a few unique properties to it. Could one of the world’s saltiest lakes start drying up finally? Some experts believe that the lake will be completely dry by 2050 if it continues to drop by 3 feet in depth year. The dead sea has the lowest elevation on earth and even though nothing can survive living in this lake, it’s still quite a unique place that many people enjoy visiting. It’s looking like this sea might be dead and it’s losing 2 billion gallons of water each year. A large scale mining operation appears to be the source of the problem as well as water diversions from the Jordan River. As a result of its diminishing size, large sink holes seem to be forming along the coast which has made tourism an issue. There is a plan in effect to try to save the lake which require building a series of pipelines and canals to transport water to it. This would require cooperation between israel and it’s neighboring countries which we all know could be a little difficult. 4. Great Decline in Mental Health Since many advanced medicines will be out there to help people live longer, by the time 2050 rolls around, it’s estimated that roughly 115 people will suffer from dementia. Dementia for the most part slows down the brain’s ability to remember things, make thinking more difficult, cause mood swings, and so on. A common form of dementia is known as alzheimer's disease which makes up roughly 50 to 70 percent of cases. People suffering from dementia are often recommended not to drive which many of us people in 30 years from now might not accept. It could lead an increase in automobile accidents and other risky complications. Treatments can become expensive and industrializing countries that are currently growing might be facing a higher rate than imaginable 2050. 3. Earthquake in San Fransisco The picturesque city of San Francisco is really a ticking time bomb that could go off any minute now. Not only is it a coastal city which makes it susceptible to flooding, hurricanes and what not, but it sits along a major fault line known as the San Andreas Fault. According to the University of California, there’s a 75 percent chance that an earthquake of a 7 or greater magnitude will occur by 2086! The fact that san francisco hasn’t had a major earthquake since 1986 is still somewhat of a miracle considering it’s location. The last major one since 1986 was 80 years ago where over 80 percent of the city was destroyed. It still remains as california’s biggest natural disaster and another one in modern times would be even more devastating. Aftershocks could then cause tsunamis and the whole west coast will start heading east, resulting in high levels of unemployment, and homelessness in states such as nevada. 2. Cities Get More Populated Many experts are predicting that heavily populated cities will become even more populated in the near future and fewer people will choose to live outside of city limits. According to the UN the way things are going, it’s likely that . This means subways will become more crowded, teachers won’t be able to handle large classes, and even worse, the line at the DMV will get even longer! It’s believed that China, India, and Nigeria will account for 35 percent of the projected growth of the worlds urbanization with india containing 416 million city dwellers! They also project that new delhi, the capital of india will become the most populated city on the planet with 29 million people! The population boom in this country will come with serious infrastructure failures, food shortages, lack of health care and housing. People in Eastern Europe will begin seeking work in crowded city centers such as london, paris and germany while leaving their less economically stable countries behind in the dust which brings me to my next one. 1...

"Queen of dates" booms in Jordan
 
05:17
(24 Aug 2018) LEADIN: The Medjool date, known as the "Queen of dates", is booming in Jordan. After successful exports, Jordan's production now makes up around 14 percent of the global market. STORYLINE: Row after row of date palms in the Jordan Valley - and now one date in particular is making its name globally. The Medjool date, known as the "Queen of dates", started to grow in Jordan at the beginning of the 21st century after the King of Jordan received it as a gift from the King of Morocco in 1995. Now, according to the Jordan Dates Association, Jordan's production represents up to 14 per cent of the global market. Other production countries include Morocco, the US (California) and Israel. Mainly located in the Jordan Valley, Medjool plantations have become a great success over the years. The climate of the area is perfect for this variety of dates. Firas Jeneidi went into early retirement to focus on his farm, which produces both Bahri and Medjool dates. "We are under the sea level and there is a lot of oxygen, which helps a lot to produce a good taste for the dates", he explains. Jeneidi exports 15 tonnes of Medjool dates every year to the UK, the Gulf countries, India, and more recently to China and the US. A couple of kilometres from Jenedi's farm, Medjool Village is the biggest dates farm in the Jordan Valley. It's been cultivating dates since 2012 and now has 18,000 palm trees. Marketing and Sales Director Faisal Nabulsi says that it was a private farm at first, until they realised the potential of this popular variety: "The Medjool date is very popular in the world because it's a very strong superfood," he explains. According to the Jordan Dates Association there are around 150 dates farms in Jordan. Every year, about 14,000 tonnes of Medjool dates are produced, and at least half of them are exported, selling at an average of 5 Jordan Dinars per kilogramme (7 US Dollars). And Nabulsi says he can only see production increasing: "We are going to probably face a Medjool boom in Jordan soon. And I believe at least in the next 3 or 4 years, we are talking about probably an increase of 30 to 40 percent in property being planted," he says.

Dead Sea, Israel, Middle East, Asia
 
00:15
The Dead Sea, also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and Palestine to the west. Its surface and shores are 429 metres (1,407 ft) below sea level, Earth's lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 304 m (997 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With 34.2% salinity (in 2011), it is also one of the world's saltiest bodies of water, though Lake Vanda in Antarctica (35%), Lake Assal in Djibouti (34.8%), Lagoon Garabogazköl in the Caspian Sea (up to 35%) and some hypersaline ponds and lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica (such as Don Juan Pond (44%)) have reported higher salinities. It is 9.6 times as salty as the ocean. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 50 kilometres (31 mi) long and 15 kilometres (9 mi) wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley and its main tributary is the Jordan River. The Dead Sea has attracted visitors from around the Mediterranean basin for thousands of years. In the Bible, it is a place of refuge for King David. It was one of the world's first health resorts (for Herod the Great), and it has been the supplier of a wide variety of products, from asphalt for Egyptian mummification to potash for fertilizers. People also use the salt and the minerals from the Dead Sea to create cosmetics and herbal sachets. The Dead Sea water has a density of 1.24 kg/litre, which makes swimming similar to floating. The Dead Sea is an endorheic lake located in the Jordan Rift Valley, a geographic feature formed by the Dead Sea Transform (DST). This left lateral-moving transform fault lies along the tectonic plate boundary between the African Plate and the Arabian Plate. It runs between the East Anatolian Fault zone in Turkey and the northern end of the Red Sea Rift offshore of the southern tip of Sinai. It is here that the Upper Jordan River/Sea of Galilee/Lower Jordan River water system comes to an end. The Jordan River is the only major water source flowing into the Dead Sea, although there are small perennial springs under and around the Dead Sea, forming pools and quicksand pits along the edges. There are no outlet streams. Rainfall is scarcely 100 mm (4 in) per year in the northern part of the Dead Sea and barely 50 mm (2 in) in the southern part. The Dead Sea zone's aridity is due to the rainshadow effect of the Judaean Mountains. The highlands east of the Dead Sea receive more rainfall than the Dead Sea itself. To the west of the Dead Sea, the Judaean mountains rise less steeply and are much lower than the mountains to the east. Along the southwestern side of the lake is a 210 m (700 ft) tall halite formation called "Mount Sodom". In the early part of the 20th century, the Dead Sea began to attract interest from chemists who deduced the sea was a natural deposit of potash (potassium chloride) and bromine. The Palestine Potash Company was chartered in 1929, after its founder, Siberian Jewish engineer and pioneer of Lake Baikal exploitation, Moses Novomeysky, worked for the charter for over ten years. The first plant was on the north shore of the Dead Sea at Kalya and produced potash by solar evaporation of the brine. Employing Arabs and Jews, it was an island of peace in turbulent times. The company quickly grew into the largest industrial site in the Middle East and in 1934 built a second plant on the southwest shore, in the Mount Sodom area, south of the 'Lashon' region of the Dead Sea. Palestine Potash Company supplied half of Britain's potash during World War II, but ultimately became a casualty of the 1948 Arab–Israeli War. Following the 1948 war, the Kalya plant in the West Bank was shut down, having been dismantled by the Palmach prior to their retreat. Operations restarted at the southern Sodom plant in 1952, and have continued to the present. The remnants of the Palestine Potash Company were nationalised and Dead Sea Works Ltd. was established in 1952 in its stead as a state-owned company to extract potash and other minerals from the Dead Sea. In 1995, the company was privatized and it is currently owned by Israel Chemicals. From the Dead Sea brine, Israel produces (2001) 1.77 million tons potash, 206,000 tons elemental bromine, 44,900 tons caustic soda, 25,000 tons magnesium metal, and sodium chloride. Israeli companies generate around US$3 billion annually from the sale of Dead Sea minerals (primarily potash and bromine) and from other products, which are derived from Dead Sea Minerals. Israel has 15 hotels along the Dead Sea shore, generating total revenues of $291 million in 2012. Most Israeli hotels and resorts on the Dead Sea are on a six kilometer stretch of the southern shore. The Palestinian Dead Sea Coast is about 40 kilometers long. The Palestinian economy is unable to benefit from Dead Sea chemicals due to restricted access, permit issues and the uncertainties of the investment climate.

Floating in the Dead Sea ...You Can't Sink!
 
03:04
The Dead Sea (Hebrew: יָם הַמֶּלַח, Yam ha-Melah, "Sea of Salt", also Hebrew: יָם הַמָּוֶת, Yam ha-Mavet, "The Sea of Death", and Arabic: البحر الميت‎‎ About this sound Al-Bahr al-Mayyit (help·info)), also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and Palestine to the west. Its surface and shores are 429 metres (1,407 ft) below sea level, Earth's lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 304 m (997 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With 34.2% salinity (in 2011), it is 9.6 times as salty as the ocean, and one of the world's saltiest bodies of water. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which plants and animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 50 kilometers (31 mi) long and 15 kilometers (9 mi) wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley and its main tributary is the Jordan River. The Dead Sea water has a density of 1.24 kg/liter, which makes swimming similar to floating. Biblical period- Dwelling in caves near the Dead Sea is recorded in the Hebrew Bible as having taken place before the Israelites came to Canaan, and extensively at the time of King David. Just northwest of the Dead Sea is Jericho. Somewhere, perhaps on the southeastern shore, would be the cities mentioned in the Book of Genesis which were said to have been destroyed in the time of Abraham: Sodom and Gomorra (Genesis 18) and the three other "Cities of the Plain", Admah, Zeboim and Zoar (Deuteronomy 29:23). Zoar escaped destruction when Abraham's nephew Lot escaped to Zoar from Sodom (Genesis 19:21-22). Before the destruction, the Dead Sea was a valley full of natural tar pits, which was called the vale of Siddim. King David was said to have hidden from Saul at Ein Gedi nearby. In Ezekiel 47:8-9 there is a specific prophecy that the sea will ".. be healed and made fresh", becoming a normal lake capable of supporting marine life. A similar prophecy is stated in Zechariah 14:8, which says that "Living waters will go out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea (likely the Dead Sea) and half to the western sea (the Mediterranean)..." Greek and Roman period- Aristotle wrote about the remarkable waters. The Nabateans and others discovered the value of the globs of natural asphalt that constantly floated to the surface where they could be harvested with nets. The Egyptians were steady customers, as they used asphalt in the embalming process that created mummies. The Ancient Romans knew the Dead Sea as "Palus Asphaltites" (Asphalt Lake). King Herod the Great built or rebuilt several fortresses and palaces on the western bank of the Dead Sea. The most famous was Masada, where in 70 CE a small group of Jewish zealots fled after the fall of the destruction of the Second Temple. The zealots survived until 73 CE, when a siege by the X Legion ended in the deaths by suicide of its 960 inhabitants. Another historically important fortress was Machaerus (מכוור), on the eastern bank, where, according to Josephus, John the Baptist was imprisoned by Herod Antipas and died. Also in Roman times, some Essenes settled on the Dead Sea's western shore; Pliny the Elder identifies their location with the words, "on the west side of the Dead Sea, away from the coast ... [above] the town of Engeda" (Natural History, Bk 5.73); and it is therefore a hugely popular but contested hypothesis today, that same Essenes are identical with the settlers at Qumran and that "the Dead Sea Scrolls" discovered during the 20th century in the nearby caves had been their own library. Josephus identified the Dead Sea in geographic proximity to the ancient Biblical city of Sodom. However, he referred to the lake by its Greek name, Asphaltites. Various sects of Jews settled in caves overlooking the Dead Sea. The best known of these are the Essenes of Qumran, who left an extensive library known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. The town of Ein Gedi, mentioned many times in the Mishna, produced persimmon for the temple's fragrance and for export, using a secret recipe. "Sodomite salt" was an essential mineral for the temple's holy incense, but was said to be dangerous for home use and could cause blindness. The Roman camps surrounding Masada were built by Jewish slaves receiving water from the towns around the lake. These towns had drinking water from the Ein Feshcha springs and other sweetwater springs in the vicinity. Byzantine period- Intimately connected with the Judean wilderness to its northwest and west, the Dead Sea was a place of escape and refuge. The remoteness of the region attracted Greek Orthodox monks since the Byzantine era. Their monasteries, such as Saint George in Wadi Kelt and Mar Saba in the Judean Desert, are places of pilgrimage.

This report was shot in Summer 2009. It focuses on the current state of the Dead Sea eco system. The Dead Sea is a salted lake that is located between Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Territories. The report examines the reasons behind the rapid regression of the Dead Sea coastline. This story was made by Yermi Brenner for the Video Journalist Movement (http://www.vjmovement.com/truth/227) and was later posted in Yermi's Huffington Post blog (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/yermi-brenner/saving-the-jordan-valley_b_564290.html).

URDU DOCOMANTRY ON DEAD SEA
 
04:47
The Dead Sea (Hebrew: ??? ????????? About this sound Yam ha-Melah lit. Sea of Salt; Arabic: ????? ?????? About this sound Al-Bahr al-Mayyit[5]) is a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and Palestine to the west . Its surface and shores are 430.5 metres (1,412 ft) below sea level,[4][6] Earth 's lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 304 m (997 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With a salinity of 342 g/kg, or 34.2%, (in 2011), it is 9.6 times as salty as the ocean and one of the world's saltiest bodies of water.[7] This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which plants and animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 50 kilometres (31 mi) long and 1 5 kilometres (9 mi) wide at its widest point.[1] It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley, and its main tributary is the Jordan River. The Dead Sea has attracted visitors from around the Mediterranean basin for thousands of years. It was one of the world's first health resorts (for Herod the Great), and it has been the supplier of a wide variety of products, from asphalt for Egyptian mummification to potash for fertilisers. People also use the salt and the minerals from the Dead Sea to create cosmetics and herbal sachets. The Dead Seawater has a density of 1.24 kg/litre, which makes swimming similar to floating.[8][9] The Dead Sea is receding at an alarming rate. Multiple canals and pipelines were proposed to reduce its recession, which had begun causing many problems. The Red Sea-Dead Sea Water Conveyance project , carried out by Jordan, will provide water to neighbouring countries, while the brine will be carried to the Dead Sea to help stabilise its levels. The first phase of the project is scheduled to begin in 2018 and be completed in 2021 PLEASE FOLLOW ME ON SOCIAL SITES TWITER https://twitter.com/InterstingH G+ https://plus.google.com/u/0/discover

The prophets knew it via the infamous Sodom and Gomorra. During the Egyptian it is said that Queen Cleopatra obtained exclusive rights to build cosmetic and pharmaceutical in the area. Later on, the wily Nabateans discovered the value of bitumen extracted from the Dead Sea and needed by the Egyptians for embalming their mummies. Aristotle wrote about the remarkable waters. In Roman times the Essenes settled in Qumran on the Dead Sea's northern shore as a place o and on the heights of Masada a small group of rebellious Jewish zealots held out against the might of the Roman Legion. The remoteness of the region attracted Greek Orthodox monks since the Byzantine era. Their monasteries such as Saint George in Wadi Kelt and Mar Saba in the Judean Desert are places of pilgrimage. Bedouin tribes have continuously lived in the area and more recently explorers and scientists arrived to analyze the minerals and conduct research into the unique climate. Since the 1960's, tourists from all the world have also explored the Dead Sea region.

Jordan Reyne - Remembering the Dead (audio book)
 
18:48
New Zealand's pioneer history is still full of stories untold. Remembering the Dead was written when Jordan was sent by the New Zealand Arts countil to the remote south island town of Karamea, on New Zealand's west coast, to hunt out the tales of the dead. A blend of folklore, fact, and fantasy, Remembering the Dead is set in a forest where the undead are said to walk at night, Lethe, a gravedigger in the employ of History, is sent to harvest the tongues of the dead. In doing so she unearths a ghost of her own, intent on toppling her already tenuous grip on her own story. Remembering the dead is a collection of folklore, fact and fantasy, gathered from the folk of Karamea and the direct decendents of New Zealand's first pioneers to the area.

Palestinian SPLENDOR!

Explore the beauty of Palestine the land and its people. The Arab Palestinians are Semitic by race, and are the descendents of the Canaanites, who lived in the land long before Biblical times! Palestine is one of several names for the geographic region between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River and various adjoining lands. The name Palestine refers to a region of the eastern Mediterranean coast from the sea to the Jordan valley and from the southern Negev desert to the Galilee lake region in the north. Palestine is included between two lines drawn from the Mediterranean eastward—the lower from the southeast corner of the Mediterranean through the southern end of the Dead Sea, and the upper from Tyre to the southern foot of Mount Hermon. Palestine has certain natural boundaries to justify its historical individuality. Palestine embraces the current state of Israel and the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The country is at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, bounded by Lebanon to the north, Syria to the northeast, Jordan and the West Bank to the east, and Egypt and the Gaza Strip to the southwest. It lies between latitudes 29° and 34° N, and longitudes 34° and 36° E. The sovereign territory of Israel (according to the demarcation lines of the 1949 Armistice Agreements and excluding all territories captured by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War) is approximately 20,770 square kilometers (8,019 sq mi) in area, of which two percent is water.[2] However Israel is so narrow that the exclusive economic zone in the Mediterranean is double the land area of the country.[249] The total area under Israeli law, including East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, is 22,072 square kilometers (8,522 sq mi),[250] and the total area under Israeli control, including the military-controlled and partially Palestinian-governed territory of the West Bank, is 27,799 square kilometers (10,733 sq mi).[251] Despite its small size, Israel is home to a variety of geographic features, from the Negev desert in the south to the inland fertile Jezreel Valley, mountain ranges of the Galilee, Carmel and toward the Golan in the north. The Israeli coastal plain on the shores of the Mediterranean is home to most of the nation's population.[252] East of the central highlands lies the Jordan Rift Valley, which forms a small part of the 6,500-kilometer (4,039 mi) Great Rift Valley. The Jordan River runs along the Jordan Rift Valley, from Mount Hermon through the Hulah Valley and the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on the surface of the Earth.[253] Further south is the Arabah, ending with the Gulf of Eilat, part of the Red Sea. Unique to Israel and the Sinai Peninsula are makhteshim, or erosion cirques.[254] The largest makhtesh in the world is Ramon Crater in the Negev,[255] which measures 40 by 8 kilometers (25 by 5 mi).[256] A report on the environmental status of the Mediterranean Basin states that Israel has the largest number of plant species per square meter of all the countries in the basin.[257] Tectonics and seismicity Further information: List of earthquakes in the Levant The Jordan Rift Valley is the result of tectonic movements within the Dead Sea Transform (DSF) fault system. The DSF forms the transform boundary between the African Plate to the west and the Arabian Plate to the east. The Golan Heights and all of Jordan are part of the Arabian Plate, while the Galilee, West Bank, Coastal Plain, and Negev along with the Sinai Peninsula are on the African Plate. This tectonic disposition leads to a relatively high seismic activity in the region. The entire Jordan Valley segment is thought to have ruptured repeatedly, for instance during the last two major earthquakes along this structure in 749 and 1033. The deficit in slip that has built up since the 1033 event is sufficient to cause an earthquake of Mw~7.4.[258] The most catastrophic known earthquakes occurred in 31 BCE, 363, 749, and 1033 CE, that is every ca. 400 years on average.[259] Destructive earthquakes leading to serious loss of life strike about every 80 years.[260] While stringent construction regulations are currently in place and recently built structures are earthquake-safe, as of 2007 the majority of the buildings in Israel were older than these regulations and many public buildings as well as 50,000 residential buildings did not meet the new standards and were "expected to collapse" if exposed to a strong quake.[260] Given the fragile political situation of the Middle East region and the presence there of major holy sites, a quake reaching magnitude 7 on the Richter scale could have dire consequences for world peace.[259] Climate
