How Do Clouds Float?

Clouds form when the sun creates warm, moist air by heating and evaporating water on the earth’s surface. The warm, moist air is less dense than the cold air above it, so that warm air rises. The warm air cools as it comes into contact with the cooler air above. Cold air cannot hold as much moisture as warm air: the vapor has to condense into a liquid. This is the beginning of a cloud. the warm air pushes up on the cloud and keeps it afloat.

(kindly inform, if given info is vary from actual facts🙏🏻)

Meenakshi is a Hindu goddess and tutelary deity of Madurai who is considered an avatar of the Goddess Parvati. She is the divine consort of Sundareswarar, a form of Shiva.

Meenakshi, Kamakshi and Visalakshi are considered the 3 Shakti forms of Goddess Parvati . derived from the words mīna ‘fish’ and akṣī ‘eye’. She was earlier known by the Tamil name Taḍādakai ‘fish-eyed one’, mentioned in early historical account as a fierce, unmarried goddess which was later sanskritised as Meenaksh.

Various meanings of this appellation have been suggested, including that she was originally a goddess of the fisher-folk, that her eyes are “large and brilliant” like that of a fish, or that she has “long and slender” eyes shaped like the body of a fish. Another interpretation is that the name is based on the belief that the fish never close their eyes: the goddess similarly never stops watching over her devotees.

CPR : Doing CPR right away can double or even triple a person’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest.

If a person is not breathing, his heartbeat will stop. Do CPR (chest compressions and rescue breaths) to help circulation and get oxygen into the body. (Early use of an AED—an automated external defibrillator—if one is available, can restart a heart with an abnormal rhythm.

Keep your hand on the centre of the victims chest. Interlock fingers. Give chest compressions. Move to the patient’s head. Tilt his head and lift his chin to open the airway again. Let his mouth fall open slightly. Take a normal breath, put your mouth over the patient’s, and blow until you can see his chest rise.Remove your mouth from the patient’s and look along the chest, watching the chest fall. Repeat steps and rescue breaths.
