- How the wind blows. As the sun warms the earth’s surface, the atmosphere warms too.Some parts of the earth receive direct rays from the sun all year and are always warm.Other places receive indirect rays, so the climate is colder. Warm air, which weighs less than cool air, rises. Then cool air moves in and replaces the rising warm air. This movement of air is what makes the wind blow.Dolphins sleep with one eye open! 
--Why do we might feel warmer wearing a dark-colored jacket than a light-colored one? .Dark colors
absorb 
light energy. Light colors and white
reflect 
light energy. When lightshines on your dark jacket, the jacket fabric absorbs light energy. The absorbed lightenergy causes electrons in the atoms of the jacket to vibrate. This activity releases heatenergy, which makes the jacket—and you—warmer. That's why we like to wear more darkcolors in winter and more light colors in summer.-While sleeping, one man in eight snores, and one in ten grinds his teeth.
