Rothko in Salts

December 12th 2017

Located in northern China Shanxi province, this dreamy landscape, Xiechi Lake, is consider by some to be China’s dead sea. This 500 million years old saline lake, on which a human could easily float, randomly changes colour as a result of extreme heat. It is the multiplication of bacteria, or algal bloom, that "paints" the lake with these peculiar colours. Tints vary along magenta, green and yellow gradients, giving a Rothko-like appearance to the scenery, and making it our peculiar image of the week. Via NatGeo.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
