你知道死海严格意义上说是湖不是海吗?死海位于亚洲西部巴勒斯坦、约旦、以色列之间,它的名字上虽然有一个海字,但它并不是海,而是一个湖泊。
Did you know that the Dead Sea is technically1 a lake? A lake is a body of water that is surrounded by land. The Dead Sea is surrounded by Israel, the West Bank, and Jordan. A lake can be made up of salt water or fresh water. The Dead Sea is famous for being one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world. Water enters the Dead Sea through local rivers and streams, but there is no outlet2 for it to drain out. The water evaporates3 quickly, which results in a high salt content. In fact, it is so high that people can float effortlessly when in the Dead Sea. While it is dangerous to ingest the water due to the dissolved mineral salts, it is a natural health spa for your skin. The salt is what gave this lake its name. Almost no life can survive in the water due to the salinity4. The Dead Sea is also famous for its low elevation5. The surface of the Dead Sea is about 400 meters below sea level.
 
 
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between brown and white-shelled eggs? Brown eggs often cost more at the market or grocery store. The difference is not in the quality, but in the size of the egg. Generally, white-feathered hens with white earlobes lay white eggs, while hens with red earlobes, often brown hens, lay brown eggs. Brown eggs are typically bigger than white eggs, which is why they cost more. You can’t compare the nutritional6 value of brown and white eggs like you can brown and white bread products. To compare eggs, you need to look at what the hens are fed, rather than the colour of the shell.
