Normalmente sus aguas son azules cuando brilla el sol y grises en los días nublados
Cada verano boreal, específicamente en agosto, el lago Burlinskoye, en Siberia, se repleta de turistas que viajan a sumergir sus pies en sus mágicas aguas rosadas
Y no es que se trate de un fenómeno óptico o que en las aguas se haya derramado algún producto, sino que las saladas aguas Burlinskoye se vuelven rosadas simplemente debido a unos microorganismos que habitan en ellas.
Se trata de las artemias salinas, unos crustáceos de tres ojos y 11 patas, que habitan la tierra desde hace más de 100 millones años.
Y que, además, son rosados. Según informó “The Siberian Times”, este año el lago Burlinskoye se volvió rosado dos o tres semanas antes de lo habitual, aparentemente debido al cambio climático.
Antes y después de su fase rosada, las aguas del lago son azules cuando brilla el sol y grises en los días nublados.
El Burlinskoye también es famoso por los grandes depósitos de sal que tiene. De hecho, la emperatriz rusa Catalina la Grande exigía tener sal de este lago en sus banquetes. “De ahora en adelante, ordeno llevar a la mesa del zar solo sal del Burlinskoye”, se dice que decretó.

Humans have long held a complex relationship with the sun. It's driven our evolutionary and cultural progression on manifold occasions, it's been the inspiration for art and song, and it's become the driving force in emerging industry. Every now and again, we find ourselves answering the call, looking to the sky during the hours before dusk to find the perfect spot to bid our star farewell. It's fortunate that in the U.S. we have such diverse and incredible landscapes that serve as a backdrop to this duty. In fact, there are so many wonderful spots to watch the sunset that it's impossible to pick favorites. Regardless, here are a few contenders you might want to consider.
Here are the best places in the U.S. to watch the sunset:
1. Grand Canyon, Arizona
The Grand Canyon is among the world's most breathtaking landmarks. It's no wonder that watching the sunset above the massive chasm carved by the winding Colorado river would be any less spectacular. And, standing in the right spot, you can watch the light give way as the sun dips down into the canyon, and watch it disappear into the earth as if were swallowed up by the river.
2. Bar Harbor, Maine
A popular tourist destination on the island of Mount Desert, the town of Bar Harbor is a popular tourist spot and former summer home for many among the super wealthy. You can stand practically anywhere on the island and get a great view, but peering from Bar Harbor into Frenchman Bay will most certainly give you a tremendous view of the setting sun. For an even better view, consider taking a sunset whale watching tour and find yourself in the midst of a panorama like you've never seen before.
3. Orcas Island, Washington
Another island on the list that also has whaling tours and a breathtaking sunset. Named for a Mexican Viceroy who sent an expedition into the Pacific Northwest, Orcas Island is located off the northwest coast of Washington state in the San Juan Islands. You can watch the sun go down over the awkwardly named Massacre Bay from the Howe Art Sculpture Park and Gallery or Moran State Park.
4. Mount Haleakala, Hawaii
Mount Haleakala is a massive volcano that makes up over three quarters of the Hawaiian island of Maui. There's a 30,000-acre national park here for visitors to wander through and take in the scenery. But Mount Haleakala is also known for its mesmerizing sunsets. Here, you can watch the sun disappear beneath the mist-soaked volcanic landscape, taking in the beauty of the surrounding natural world.
5. Empire State Building, New York, NY
The sun never sets on the American Empire, but it does set in New York, the financial, artistic and trade capital of the U.S. From the lofty heights atop the building that's almost synonymous with the city itself, you can watch the sun beat down over the steel and stone landscape that modernity has carved for us.
Google has plenty of apps and services on offer for Android users, ranging from applications such as Maps and Translate to the Google Drive suite including productivity tools such as Google Docs, Sheets, and Google Slides. Assuming that you count among the Android users who rely on Google’s productivity suite while on the road, you may be pleased to learn that this week the company in Mountain View has released new updates for Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, allowing for better tables and charts in all three applications.
According to Google’s official blogpost discussing the latest changes, following the recent update users will be able to copy body of cells in Sheets and paste the content in Slides or Docs, with the transferred selection rendering “as a fully-formatted table, gridlines and all”. However, this feature will only work with selections of fewer than 400 cells, and any selections larger than 400 cells will be pasted in a tap-separated format.
Additionally, Google mentions that the technology behind charts in Sheets has been improved, and thus after the update users “may notice small changes to the way your charts are drawn”. It should be noted that all three applications – Google Sheets, Docs, and Slides – need to be updated to the latest version in order for the new improvements to tables and charts to take effect. It’s also worth mentioning that the (small) changelog included with the latest update specifies that “bug fixes and performance improvements” have been introduced for all three applications. However, the exact nature of these fixes and improvements goes unmentioned, so they are primarily working under the hood.
The latest update to Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides arrives less than two months after the suite was updated to allow for easier last minute changes before printing a document. Even more recently – as in just a couple of weeks ago – Google released another major update for Docs, Slides, and Sheets, allowing for the use of add-ons from eight partners, with more add-ons expected to be released in the future. In closing, readers who may want to acquire or update Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets can refer to the source link below.
