How to use cloud in a sentence?

  1. Dave Windmuller:

    If there is any question, it should be addressed before the nomination, he should affirmatively do it before the nomination, otherwise it's gong to be a cloud hanging over his head, and that will hurt him.

  2. Michael Schraa:

    It was a black cloud hanging over the (Department of Corrections) for a long time, when we visited the (youth prison) two years ago, that was one of the things they said, they felt like they were walking on eggshells. They didnt know when the hammer was going to fall. Now that it is concluded and theres no indication excessive force was used, I think the anxiety level for the (guards) will go down. That makes a better environment.

  3. Chief Executive Officer Mark Hurd:

    One of the benefits of cloud is that you can now offer capabilities to a much broader set of customers, we become the IT staff; we become the data center.

  4. Lindsay Tarasco:

    That combination of chemicals can release a gas cloud that can cause what’s called secondary drowning. The lungs start swelling up with its own fluid, the fluid blocks the airwaves and you drown in your own fluids. i smelled something, so I took a deep breath in. Bad mistake.

  5. Joanna Barstow:

    Gliese 1214 b is a type of planet we call a Super-Earth -- a bit bigger than Earth, a bit smaller than Neptune. It's not dense enough to be rocky so it's probably like a warm mini-Neptune. There's nothing like it in our solar system and we don't really know what to expect, on my wish list for the future is a telescope to study exoplanets like Gliese 1214 b in more detail. I want to know what's going on beneath that cloud layer !
