A manager uses a relief pitcher like a six shooter, he fires until it’s empty then takes the gun and throws it at the villain.
Nature creates natural swarms. UNU uses networking technology and algorithms to take advantage of the knowledge, wisdom, and insights of a large group of people by allowing them to think as one.
Cities depend on a healthy mix of uses and people for their vitality. As a pre-eminent world city, London is a magnet to people from across the globe.

There are things I read doing research, and there are certain books and writers I just love to read. There are books of Brian Morten’s that I love, for instance. There’s a wonderful book by an Australian writer named Helen Garner called ‘The Children’s Bach,’ and I just love the way she uses language in it.
Stock photos are used everywhere on the Net. Chances are, the website you are on right now uses stock photos somewhere – maybe as the featured image of the blog post. This also means that there will always be a large market for stock photographers.
The mobile phone is not a toy; it’s a device that uses radio waves.
I believe President Trump is more reasonable than he is generally perceived. President Trump uses strong rhetoric toward North Korea, but during the election campaign, he also said he could talk over a burger with Kim Jong-un. I am for that kind of pragmatic approach to resolve the North Korean nuclear issue.
Citigroup has a lot of money, it spends a lot of money, and it uses that money to grow and consolidate power. And it pays off.
If a man has talent and can’t use it, he’s failed. If he uses only half of it, he has partly failed. If he uses the whole of it, he has succeeded, and won a satisfaction and triumph few men ever know.
A professional player is smarter than a college man. He uses his noodle. He knows what to do and when to do it. He rarely goes up in the air as is the case with most of our college players when they get in a tight place.
Don’t forget, God uses words to create the world. Words! Words are only hope.

We’re trying to do something so that when the average person uses Pinterest, it has to make the service better.
Technology is in fact one of the most exciting things that’s happened to museums today – but one has to be careful about where one uses it. For instance, the Internet provides an incredible opportunity. It is a way for us to reach audiences around the world and further our educational mission.
College education is the great Filipino dream. But in a world of rapid technological change, getting a job or keeping it depends as much on how well one reasons as how well one uses his hands.
Vladimir Putin uses energy to hold our allies hostage. If energy is going to be used as a weapon, I say America must have the largest arsenal.
The goods of the world market are available for Cuba to purchase, but all the foreign exchange is monopolized by the regime, which uses it for its own power and pleasure.
The human brain works as a binary computer and can only analyze the exact information-based zeros and ones (or black and white). Our heart is more like a chemical computer that uses fuzzy logic to analyze information that can’t be easily defined in zeros and ones.
The tools that a society uses to create and maintain itself are as central to human life as a hive is to bee life. Though the hive is not part of any individual bee, it is part of the colony, both shaped by and shaping the lives of its inhabitants.
Listening to music and lyrics and watching movies, I think, uses a lot of the same muscles we use in reading and experiencing poetry – and yet we somehow forget that we have those when it comes to sitting down with a book of poems.
Most electronic equipment uses the principle of amplification. You need filters, modulators and mixing equipment which have gain stages. By piling these components up, I was able to work without any sound generators and I made several pieces in that manner.
Exposition has legitimate uses. It’s the most efficient way to summarize background information, including necessary information about a character’s history. It can set the stage well for a major dramatized event.
The drive behind what I do is really to make sure that people don’t go to bed hungry. It’s not just that I have a love of diversity, it’s the importance of the uses of that diversity.
Hipster Sexism consists of the objectification of women but in a manner that uses mockery, quotation marks, and paradox: the stuff you learned about in literature class. As funny as Dunham’s ‘Girls’ is, it can definitely border on Hipster Sexism.
The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately… you usually don’t use it at all. It uses you.
My favorite sci-fi always uses its hook to amplify some bigger theme or idea – some emotional thrust.
Americans are uneasy with their possessions, guilty about power, all of which is difficult for Europeans to perceive because they are themselves so truly materialistic, so versed in the uses of power.

I’m prepared for Amir Khan moving swiftly – or for whatever style he comes out using. I prepared with sparring, in the style similar to what he uses.
All along we find that social life – religion, politics, art – reflects the stages reached in the development of the knowledge of self; it shows the social uses made of this knowledge.
India uses Bollywood, rather cinema, to tell its stories. It is one of the largest filmmaking nations in the world and so your talents get to tell stories about politics, love and drama through films.
Crazy Jane is a complex individual who always has a lot brewing. She tries to hold things together on the surface, which is something that we all try to do. She uses these different personalities to try to cope with life.
I’m a huge fan of world cinema, because each country uses cinema in a very individual way.
Sometimes I feel people think I live on a commune but I don’t. We are all solar, though. There are no power lines. It’s mostly farmers, so everyone who has tractors uses bio-diesel.
The Resistance is a moral certainty, not a poetic one. The true poet never uses words in order to punish someone. His judgment belongs to a creative order; it is not formulated as a prophetic scripture.
‘Va Savoir’ is a lovable comedy about love that looks upon life as drama and uses the world of the theater as a staging device.
A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it.
It is not history which uses men as a means of achieving – as if it were an individual person – its own ends. History is nothing but the activity of men in pursuit of their ends.
Knowing what paint a painter uses or having an understanding of where he was in the history of where he came from doesn’t hurt your appreciation of the painting.
I love the incredible variety of demands directing makes on you, from the entrepreneur to the hustler to the deal-maker to the writer; to directing actors and the camera and working with music, sound, marketing and promotion. It uses so many sides of your brain.
The Spy Act strikes a right balance between preserving legitimate and benign uses of this technology, while still, at the same time, protecting unwitting consumers from the harm caused when it is misused and, of course, designed for nefarious purposes.
Congress has a constitutional right to help decide and limit how the country uses its military power. But to assert this right, the legislature must also live up to the responsibility that goes with it, with leaders who are willing to bear it and capable of doing so wisely.
For millions of women and men around the world, the playwright Eve Ensler is a beloved figure. She represents the epitome of the politically engaged artist, someone who uses her creative brilliance to illuminate injustice and give voice to the voiceless.
Everybody just uses the one-move rule without realising when it is too late to actually move and cross over and when it is actually being dangerous.
In ‘Power Play’, Finder uses the thriller structure to make pointed observations about gender in the workplace, the corporate caste system, and the true nature of risk in the global business environment.
Anger can be a good thing. It’s a mechanism that your brain uses to get you out of situations that are bad for you. But in terms of leading a peaceful life, it is not very productive.
I think anyone who uses the web is smart and will profit.
Emily Dickinson seems rather tame because she pretty much uses the same meter every time. It’s called ‘common meter.’ It’s a line of four beats that’s followed by a line of three beats.
I’ve never looked down on anyone who uses the system, but I believe that it’s a temporary station in life and that we should all work toward getting off it. And once we get off it, we should pay back to that system.

I’ve been working for this industry since I was 15, and every makeup artist I’ve known who’s worth my time uses Jao Refresher on their hands and their brushes. It’s like an all-encompassing sanitizer that smells way better than alcoholy Purell.
There is nowhere in the four Gospels where Jesus uses the word ‘homosexual.’
I’m not saying my wife’s a bad cook, but she uses a smoke alarm as a timer.
I like to experiment with different things and find different uses for them. New things pop up every day – Snapchat, Vine, Parasail.
It’s important that I work with people where they know why they’re hiring me and that they’re looking to create art without fear. Anyone who uses those excuses to not cast people or to create extremely stereotypical characters, they’re creating out of fear, and to me that’s really boring.
Manga uses Japanese traditional structures in how to teach the student and to transmit a very direct message. You learn from the teacher by watching from behind his back. The whole teacher-master thing is part of Asian culture, I think.
The secret to gaining the upper hand in a negotiation is to give the other side the illusion of control. Don’t try to force your opponent to admit that you are right. Ask questions, that begin with ‘How?’ or ‘What?’ so your opponent uses mental energy to figure out the answer.
That is always really fun when you get to work with a director you understand and uses references you can identify with.
You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
If you’re a publisher and you forbid deep linking into your site, or have a paid wall or registration requirement, then you’re making it hard to ‘point to’ your content. When no one points to your content, your content is harder to find because search uses links as a proxy for popularity.
We need to understand that we are not each others’ enemies in this country. And it is only the political class that derives its power by creating friction. It is only the media that derives its importance by creating friction… that uses every little thing to create this chasm between people. This is not who we are.
The U.S. uses most of its oil for transportation. We can limit U.S. demand for oil by requiring automakers to use the technology that already exists to improve fuel economy – technology that the automakers refuse to bring into the market despite societal demand.
‘Right’ and ‘wrong’ aren’t words a linguist uses.
Many of the greatest composers and musicians do their best work in extreme confinement but we are seeing it in other fields – uses of technology to link people together in networks to solve problems and almost certainly we’ll get better ideas than we would from them just doing it on their own.
I prefer entertaining football but having a personality like Costa in your team is always good. He uses warfare to win the games but I know him, he’s a good guy who transforms when he comes on the pitch.
The tragedy of war is that it uses man’s best to do man’s worst.
Look, of course people are scared of entitlement reform because every time you put entitlement reform out there, the other party uses it as a political weapon against you.
The meanings of words and the uses of words come from practice from the way people in a given culture use those words.

The gastric laboratory uses its protein ferment under an acid reaction.
When men do not have healthy notions of the Divinity, false ideas supplant them, just as in bad times one uses counterfeit money when there is no good money.
It is not surprising that most Pakistanis do not support America’s bombardment of Afghanistan. The Afghans are neighbours on the brink of starvation and devastated by war. America has shown itself to be untrustworthy, a superpower that uses its values as a scabbard for its sword.
There is no Constitutional right to prey on others. The Internet is just a piece of technology, like the telephone. Society has the right to modify its uses.
Bitcoin as a globally distributed public ledger – that’s the thing I’m most excited about going forward. Thinking about how to use Bitcoin in new and innovative ways. In the meantime, we have the boring uses of Bitcoin that are in the process of going mainstream.
There’s been lots of theater that uses hip-hop in it, but more often than not, it’s used as a joke – isn’t it hilarious that these characters are rapping. I treat it as a musical form, and a musical form that allows you to pack in a ton of lyric.
Trump uses the phrase ‘America First,’ only dimly aware that he is repeating a phrase from the interwar years and indifferent to its historic resonances. But he compulsively echoes that period – another time when leaders described the world in apocalyptic terms.
It’s one thing to be a comic book fan, but when you have to create a character and put him in a suit and keep the story grounded in reality, the challenge sometimes is making sure he actually uses his powers.
Everybody has ideas. The vital question is, what do you do with them? My rock musician sons shape their ideas into music. My sister takes her ideas and fashions them into poems. My brother uses his ideas to help him understand science. I take my ideas and turn them into stories.
I wanted a theory that would allow one to live outside the office with the same philosophy one uses inside it.
A new laboratory technique, positron emission tomography, uses radioactively labeled oxygen or glucose that essentially lights up specific and different areas of the brain being activated when a person speaks words or sees words or hears words, revealing the organic location for areas of behavioral malfunction.
The egoist is fooled by no ideals: he discards them or uses them, as may suit his own interest.
I think anybody who uses email in the center of our life needs encryption.
There is nothing wrong in using people. The success never uses people except to their advantage.
If an adult uses violence on a child, the child will naturally assume that he too, has the right to use it on one smaller or weaker.
The relationship with the words someone uses is more intimate and integrated than just a quick read and a blurb can ever be. This intimacy – the words on the page being sent back and forth from engaged editor to open author – is unique in my experience.
I hate Botox, but a fabulous-looking friend of mine told me her secret was this gadget that uses electrical impulses to tone your facial muscles. It works!
On climate and clean energy, government sets the international framework, and the private sector uses that framework to do what it does best: innovate, create, and drive global progress.
Too much comedy is filthy these days. There’s nothing they won’t say. I like Jimmy Carr, but I don’t like the language he uses. I don’t understand why he feels it necessary; I find it extremely offensive.
I think the process is one of using the camera and sound in the way a detective uses a magnifying glass: to find the clues. They’re discovery devices, not performance devices – you’re watching things the way a cat does. You’re not judging. You’re there to witness something.
He who uses the office he owes to the voters wrongfully and against them is a thief.
Perhaps my favourite story is ‘Le Passe-Muraille’ by Marcel Ayme. It’s about a guy who wakes up with a weird faculty that means he can walk through walls. He’s a very shy clerk, and he uses it to get revenge, or vent his frustration.
Everyone who uses their phone on a day to day basis just be careful with how much you’re consuming because it can get unhealthy quickly.
Some of the uses being implemented for blockchain could actually work better with a database.
It is not just shameful for a contemporary American poet to use rhymes, it is unthinkable. It seems banal to him; he fears banality worse than anything, and therefore, he uses free verse – though free verse is no guarantee against banality.
I found a great book called ‘Slang Through the Ages’ by Jonathon Green. It’s basically a thesaurus of historical slang, and had lots of great old uses.
A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals.
It is the people who can do nothing who find nothing to do, and the secret to happiness in this world is not only to be useful, but to be forever elevating one’s uses.
As long as one uses the SMS facility to keep in touch or for work, it’s okay. But, it should never intrude into your personal sphere. There are people I know who use it in relationships and there one has to draw a line.
God does not use perfect men; He uses men. And so, when I say that we need to be conformed to the image of Christ, we also need to recognize that God has always used men lacking something somewhere.
I notice increasing reluctance on the part of marketing executives to use judgment; they are coming to rely too much on research, and they use it as a drunkard uses a lamp post for support, rather than for illumination.
Bitcoin is just one example of something that uses a blockchain.
A jazz musician is a juggler who uses harmonies instead of oranges.
He uses statistics like a drunk uses lamp-posts, more for support than illumination.
A journalist uses the most precise words he or she can. An artist does the same sort of thing. You gather material about a particular subject, you refine it as best you can.
Listen to the triple fugue in ‘Magnificat’ – the first subject is seven voices, the second one has 52 different voices, the third uses five; then I combine all together. Such textures you cannot call primitive.
I like Stevie Wonder as my favorite non-pianist pianist. I mean, I shouldn’t call him a non-pianist, because he’s really a great pianist, but he doesn’t feature it that much – he uses his keyboards and his piano technique to support his great songs and so forth, but he can really blow.
There’s no denying that Christy Turlington looks good in everything, but it’s especially great when she uses her supermodel looks and charitable spirit to support the organization she founded, Every Mother Counts.
A hot air balloon requires a great deal of fuel to keep it aloft, so that you can’t fly it even for one day. A gas balloon, which usually uses helium, has the problem that the helium cools at night when the sun is not on it, and you have to throw ballast overboard to keep it from going to the surface.
Richard Hoggart’s cultural analysis ‘The Uses of Literacy’ was published in 1957, but its influence still hovers over anyone setting out to write seriously about people’s affection for things that aren’t serious, such as the products of pop culture.
What I think happens, and that you have to acknowledge though, is that a director uses a book as a launching pad for his own work and that’s always very flattering.
Like almost everyone who uses e-mail, I receive a ton of spam every day. Much of it offers to help me get out of debt or get rich quick. It would be funny if it weren’t so exciting.
I think that the most beautiful thing lately hasn’t been in hardware or software per se but collaboration – the idea behind Napster, which uses the distributed power of the Internet as its engine.
There’s a great metaphor that one of my doctors uses: If a fish is swimming in a dirty tank and it gets sick, do you take it to the vet and amputate the fin? No, you clean the water. So, I cleaned up my system. By eating organic raw greens, nuts and healthy fats, I am flooding my body with enzymes, vitamins and oxygen.
The military never uses a full word if they can create an abbreviation.
Statistics are used much like a drunk uses a lamppost: for support, not illumination.
I think everyone uses Auto-Tune.
The terrorist uses surprise and stealth, and the only way to defeat that is by having accurate and timely intelligence.
History has repeatedly shown that when a new method or material becomes available, new uses for it arise.
For example I don’t work with William Hurt the same way that I will work with Viggo. They’re different guys and they work in different ways. So a good sensitive director has his general style and technique and personality that he uses but you don’t impose that on the actors.
A good engineering interview will include some set of difficult problems to solve. It might even require that the candidate write a short program. In addition, it will test the candidate’s knowledge of the tools she uses in great depth.
Sean Hannity is a hypocrite!He’s blasting anonymous sources and saying journalism is dead when he uses an anonymous source in the form of President Trump.
Everybody believes in something and everybody, by virtue of the fact that they believe in something, uses that something to support their own existence.
I think Trump uses social media as a way to get to people’s lowest common denominator. He uses it to incite fear. He talks about simplistic ideas.
Not every coach uses the same terminology.
The third note in a chord is what depicts whether it’s major or minor. Rhythm and Blues hardly ever uses it because it means that the melody is free to move between major and minor because you’re not clashing with the third being depicted one way or the other.
One of the most powerful weapons in the Food and Drug Administration’s arsenal is its ability to censure companies that promote drugs for unapproved uses.
Please don’t make the mistake of thinking that ‘Oryx and Crake’ is anti-science. Science is a way of knowing, and a tool. Like all ways of knowing and tools, it can be turned to bad uses. And it can be bought and sold, and it often is. But it is not in itself bad. Like electricity, it’s neutral.
There is no more reason why the features belonging to a picture should be distorted for the purpose of such imaginative suggestion than that the poet’s metaphors should spoil his words for the ordinary uses of man.
‘To Die For,’ with Nicole Kidman, is great – her desire to be a part of news, how she uses news to further her career and how it can drive you insane. I love that movie.
The state has physical power and uses it when necessary; the power of religion is love and beneficence.
Musicians like James Blake were a big influence on me. How he uses his vocals is amazing. And then Yeasayer and Animal Collective, who aren’t pop bands exactly, but they do something that is so catchy and undeniable and so much fun.
It is important to recognise that, alongside the huge benefits that artificial intelligence offers, there are potential ethical issues associated with some uses.
The average small-business owner uses 18 apps to run their business every day, and if those applications don’t allow data to flow seamlessly and they don’t integrate, it’s going to become a point of friction. It’s going to prevent the small business from being successful.
The genius of the market is supposed to lie in its ability to allocate society’s resources to their most efficient uses without central direction. Labour has long recognised that efficiency doesn’t always correspond with what is socially optimal or, in other words, ‘fair.’
Parents learn the uses of power and its limits. They can insist on certain outward behavior but cannot change inner attitudes. They can require obedience but not goodness – and certainly not love.
Is it progress if a cannibal uses a fork?
My daughter has a couple of those small calculators, but she never uses them. I think they’re fine if you need to double-check your figures, but people really shouldn’t let them replace basic math skills.
Who uses funds more productively – private citizens or the government? I dare say that Warren Buffett can use his surplus funds more effectively in private business and creating jobs than the government can.
When someone uses ‘low eight figures,’ that means barely eight figures.
We’ve built, drilled, and shipped indiscriminately across our oceans, with little consideration for the natural environment that is critical to the health of many of our other ocean uses, like food and recreation.
The way ‘Lux’ was made is that there are 12 sections in here, though two of them are joined together. So there are really 11 sections, in a sense, and each one uses five notes out of a palette of seven notes, and my palette is all the white notes on the piano. That was the original palette.
When people initially think of the term ‘space archaeologist,’ they think, ‘Oh, it’s someone who uses satellites to look for alien settlements on Mars or in outer space,’ but the opposite is true – we’re actually looking for evidence of past human life on planet earth.
I trust and use RakEM for my private messages and calls. Other messengers collected metadata about who I messaged, when and where – RakEM does not collect metadata, encrypts local files, and uses the strongest end-to-end encryption around.
When I was younger, I used to buy foundations that were a shade lighter. Looking back at pictures I looked really stupid and now I don’t like it when someone who is doing my make-up uses too much light stuff to contour my face.
I think it’s wrong the way they criminalize herb. There are many more uses than just smoking. Beneficial to mankind.
The Supreme Court has crafted doctrines such as ‘fair use,’ which permits copying materials for criticism, parody, and transformative uses, and has ruled that abstract ideas are not subject to copyright, because courts will not punish people for merely using an abstract concept in speech.
Timbaland uses a lot of Indian music and that has certainly familiarised me about the music of India.
I’m a huge gamer. I’m very excited, and the idea of the Rift was as a headset that was designed around the specific uses of VR gaming. But I’m excited about a lot of stuff that’s outside of it, because I was a VR enthusiast. I want VR to be the thing that we all live in, that we all use for everything, not just games.
I try to be sensitive to the power of language, to the power of language that God uses to reveal something about what Christ is doing in our time. That is why I’m always excited about preaching, because there is always something new.
I surely don’t think ignorance is bliss. But like everything else that has survived thousands of years of human evolution, ignorance – like denial, self-delusion, and magical thinking – seems to have its uses.
A single Dallas Cowboys football game uses up as much electricity as the entire nation of Liberia in those same three hours – one reason the globe, if looked at from a certain height, is a cluster of lights surrounded by enormous patches of dark.
Political linguists have argued that the right often uses stories to make an argument, while the left falls back on facts and statistics.
I live in Rome and five minutes from my flat is a church where you can walk in and see this beautiful Caravaggio. Just the way this man uses dark paint: dark to create dark to create dark, the layering of the darkness in his work. I just race home: I want to create!
Emotion AI uses massive amounts of data. In fact, Affectiva has built the world’s largest emotion data repository.
Shorter daylight hours can affect sleep, productivity and state of mind. Light therapy, also known as phototherapy, may help. It uses light boxes emitting full-spectrum light to simulate sunlight.
Bitcoin’s revolution: an impossible-to-counterfeit digital store of value that can be used as money, that has no sovereign, or central bank involved, that can be sent anywhere instantly at virtually no cost, is irresistible. Anyone who uses it is converted.
Neither the University of Michigan nor its law school uses a quota system.
I’m most excited about all of the non-currency uses of the block chain’s ledger-ordering ability. I have no idea which ones will turn out to be successful, but I’m glad all of that experimenting is happening.
My system uses the speed of components in cameras and cell phones to get four inches of depth through the brain.
Trade deficits are OK under certain circumstance. 1. An emerging nation imports capital goods necessary to enhance its productivity. 2. A developed nation, with a current account surplus, uses some of its investment income to finance the purchases of additional consumer goods from abroad.
We all fantasize about work that uses our creativity, is self-directed, happens during the hours we choose, and occurs in an attractively lit setting with fascinating people – you know, jobs like women have on TV.
We humans have become dependent on plastic for a range of uses, from packaging to products. Reducing our use of plastic bags is an easy place to start getting our addiction under control.
The yogi should meditate on a firm seat, one that is clean – untainted by dirt or unspiritual vibrations of others. The thought or life force emanating from an individual saturates the objects he uses and his dwelling.
The football playoffs feature one-off affairs, without bad feelings building from weekend to weekend. In addition, football uses platoons for offense and defense and kicking, so only the interior linemen have a chance to really get up close and personal with one another.
If someone uses the uniform, whatever uniform, for partisan politics, I am disappointed because I think it does erode that bond of trust we have with the American people.
General Atomics, the progenitor of General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, started life in 1955 when a major military contractor, General Dynamics, feared that the military hardware market might dry up. It began exploring peacetime uses of atomic energy, but abandoned the effort when cold-war military spending took off.
Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second, and you can hop from one place to another. It’s a language made of image. And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something, as in a dream.
I wouldn’t say that I’m a travel novelist, but rather a novelist who travels – and who uses travel as a background for finding stories of places.
It was only after a while, after photographing mines and clear-cutting of forests in Maine, that I realized I was looking at the components of photography itself. Photography uses paper made from trees, water, metals, and chemistry. In a way, I was looking at all these things that feed into photography.
One of the things I love so much about horror is the way it uses surprise, and when I write, it’s about: What have we not seen before? What’s going to surprise us? If we’re not going beyond, taking that challenge, I get kind of bored.
An unsophisticated forecaster uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts – for support rather than for illumination.
The Amazon uses as much oxygen as it produces.
A lot of the surreal writing that I love is really dreamlike. Like Murakami. He uses the real world, and it’s pretty recognizable, but its populated by these strange visitors, or it has these underground spaces. I was always really compelled by that.
Law builds upon and, I should like to claim, is one of the liberal arts. It uses words of persuasion and changing definitions for practical ends.
Riding uses so many different muscles. I ride two to three horses a day, and I ride almost every day when I’m not working or traveling. You use your legs, your arms, your back. It’s a very complete sport.
I question every word; I write ‘the’ and immediately feel scorn. It’s such an ordinary word – everybody uses it – why can’t I come up with something original? In the sunlight, every single word seems hackneyed.
‘Porgy and Bess’ has never been thought of as a dance show, and yet it’s filled with dance. It uses dance to punctuate the action, or as background, or as atmosphere; even when it’s front and center, it isn’t crucial.
I think you can say anybody uses anything as a gimmick. Is Adele’s not having gimmicks her gimmick? It’s hard to say, isn’t it? Really, I think that everybody has something that people like or that’s great about them.
I don’t lose my temper. I used to, but I realised I would probably die of a brain hemorrhage. So I’ve governed myself not to mind about things. I have no road rage or anything like that. Because it’s life-shortening. And also, there’s no need for it; it uses up energy.
I consider myself kind of a reporter – one who uses words that are more like music and that have a choreography. I never think of myself as a poet; I just get up and write.
In ‘Drama,’ I play a flirtatious girl who uses her femininity to get things done.
The one thing that makes me laugh about the phrase ‘the worst week of my life’ is that nobody actually uses that phrase when something really bad happens.
Raising children uses every bit of your being – your heart, your time, your patience, your foresight, your intuition to protect them, and you have to use all of this while trying to figure out how to discipline them.
The Creation Museum uses fossils to present evidence that there was a global catastrophe, Noah’s Flood, that killed and preserved the remains of creatures all over the earth.
The big advancement in our BCM7445 home gateway chip is that it uses the next-generation compression technology called HEVC – High-Efficiency Video Coding.
Theories cannot claim to be indestructible. They are only the plough which the ploughman uses to draw his furrow and which he has every right to discard for another one, of improved design, after the harvest.
The corporate right fires up the religious right against gay marriage and abortion and uses their votes to push their deregulation and tax cuts for the rich. It’s an old trick. The House of Saud has the same arrangement with the Mullahs in Saudi Arabia.
For, he that expects nothing shall not be disappointed, but he that expects much – if he lives and uses that in hand day by day – shall be full to running over.
There is no one, who possesses intelligence and uses reflection, who does not understand that it is one Being who both created all things and governs them with the same energy by which He created them.
The only thing that gets reported are the tragedies. But it rarely gets reported when somebody actually uses their Second Amendment right with a gun to protect themselves against a criminal.
Most uses of bioassay involving smooth muscle demand high sensitivity and specificity.
My favorite artist was probably Jay-Z. He’s the one who inspired me to start writing music. He’s a wordsmith. He’s very clever. He uses a lot of similes and metaphors. He’s a beast of a rapper.
Music is like nuclear plants. In a way, it’s true! Music is totally artificial. Still using some material from nature, a piano is assembled with wood and iron. Nuclear power uses material from nature, but it’s been manipulated by humans, and it produces something unnatural.
God uses whoever he wants.
As a songwriter who uses lyrics to connect with others, it made perfect sense for me to partner with Hallmark, the leading greeting card brand that also uses words to help people make meaningful connections.
I hope that the German people will never again make the mistake of believing that because the American people are peace-loving, they will sit back hoping for peace if any nation uses force or the threat of force to acquire dominion over other peoples and other governments.
I don’t understand this concept of women-oriented films or stories based on women, because nobody uses the term, a ‘man-oriented’ film. Why do you have to separate girls from boys?
To ask whether the mainstream media has a conservative or liberal bias is like asking whether al-Qaida uses too much oil in their hummus. It’s – I think they might use too much oil in their hummus – but it’s the wrong question.
The Constitution is no simple contract, not because it uses a certain amount of open-ended language, but because its language grants and guarantees many good things, and good things that compete with each other and can never all be realized, altogether, all at once.
Whoever does not philosophize for the sake of philosophy, but rather uses philosophy as a means, is a sophist.
You should have mechanisms of communication, like faxes, which are obviously getting removed from offices because nobody uses them anymore. Faxes are great when e-mail doesn’t work. I wouldn’t be throwing them away.
One day, I would like to have my own chat show. Oprah is my idol because she uses her platform so responsibly.
Many a fine SF story uses science or technology merely as backdrop. Many a fine SF story presumes a technological breakthrough and explores its implications without attempting to predict how the thing might actual work.
Why use your natural abilities to make someone feel bad? I just want to be the guy who uses his power to be positive.
I don’t think Othello is a jealous man – he is a man who has been deceived by another person, just as everybody in the play is deceived by that person… The playwright uses the word ‘jealousy’ over and over and over again, but I don’t think it has anything to do with being jealous.
I believe the best mode of aiding convicts is so to apportion their tasks in prison as to give to the industrious the opportunity of earning a sum for themselves by ‘over-work.’ A man usually values that most for which he has labored; he uses that most frugally which he has toiled hour by hour and day by day to acquire.
The functional uses of machines and innovative computer programs is not to isolate us but, rather, to promote coexistence. If used properly, it brings us together, granting unimaginable opportunities, magnifying the most quintessential and exclusively human capabilities.
I think God has some mechanism that he uses to punish those that make mistakes.
Dad likes my food, but he probably thinks it’s too busy. He is a wonderful cook but only uses three ingredients. My mum rips out my articles and makes my recipes.
This Department of Treasury, run by this administration, using the same tried and true accounting methods that every business in America uses, cast new light on the fiscal severity that our Nation is facing, what some would call a mess.
For me, writing for younger audiences and writing for adults uses two different halves of my brain.
The U.S. government uses cash accounting. That is illegal for any enterprise of any size in America except for the U.S. government. Every for-profit business, every not-for-profit business, every state and local government has to use real accounting except for Uncle Sam.
I use Verizon. My wife uses Cingular. I also have an AT&T phone for the car.
I think men know to seduce women though words and conversation and nice gestures. That’s much sexier than when a man uses muscle.
My sixth sense uses the other five senses to communicate. I may have a vision, hear a sound, get a smell, or have a physical sensation that corresponds with how someone passed. What I do revolves around noticing subtle differences in my mind and body – because they’re messages.
I wrote a novel called ‘Blonde,’ which is about Norma Jean Baker, who becomes Marilyn Monroe, which I called a fictitious biography. That uses the material as if it were myth – that Marilyn Monroe is like this mythical figure in our culture.
I think good radio often uses the techniques of fiction: characters, scenes, a big urgent emotional question. And as in the best fiction, tone counts for a lot.
It’s ridiculous how the United States practically every week sanctions Cuba and then uses manipulative language to say this is ‘helping’ the Cuban people.
When a politician uses the word ‘folks,’ we should brace ourselves for the deceit, or worse, that is coming.
Imagine a safe city with all the affordable housing we need, a city that uses its resources to help lift the marginalized up and into stability. This is the Portland I imagine. This is the Portland I dream about every single day.
Though my poems are about evenly split between traditionally formal work that uses rhyme and meter and classical structure, and work that is freer, I feel that the music of language remains at the core of it all. Sound, rhythm, repetition, compression – these elements of my poetry are also elements of my prose.
Since 9/11, the Justice Department has been widely criticized for one particular tactic it uses in fighting the War on Terror: it detains suspicious persons for long periods of time and puts them under heavy questioning before they are ever even charged with a crime.
Words have life and must be cared for. If they are stolen for ugly uses or careless slang or false promotion work, they need to be brought back to their original meaning – back to their roots.
What appeals to me? There are things, points of view, uses of the language, habits of dress, ways of thought and believing that came to me from my grandparents and came to them from theirs. Things that are of good use in any situation, no matter what the future may hold.
The mind uses its faculty for creativity only when experience forces it to do so.
I love that vein which uses sci-fi to address society’s problems. It is the same when you have useful nightmares – things morph, and you get to confront issues in your dreams.
Conventional companies try to find new uses for capabilities they already have. Transformers look at what the market needs and then go build it, hiring new people and/or taking people off other jobs.
The history of black people in Manhattan is a story of people getting pushed farther uptown as land acquires new uses and increases in value.
The president doesn’t order the military to seize political opponents. He doesn’t order his intelligence community to lie about national security for political purposes. He uses the military or intelligence communities to protect the United States and our citizens, not to help him win elections.
‘Taxi Driver’ is one of those films that is groundbreaking in how much you’re inside this character’s head. It uses voice-over in a revolutionary way where the audience is invited as a co-conspirator to the whole story line.
I have the same skin-care routine morning and night, although I’m not one of those people who always uses the same products. My skin changes with the weather.
Most of the musicians that I know almost to the man everybody uses Apple computers. They’ve thought of the steps that you’re going to think of when you’re trying to create your thing. And that’s where the tools get invented to make better art.
There’s something missing in all this new new media craziness, and that is something that uses celebrity news as a way to get into a really serious analysis of our culture.
In a way, the sense of quality has improved, the status symbol of the small things is gone, and it is acceptable to use stainless steel, even if the neighbour uses silver.
I don’t consider myself an artist. I consider myself a very opinionated man who uses words as fighting tools.
Our responsibility for BLM lands is multiple-use, meaning a variety of needs and uses.
I used to get some flack from my agents because I wouldn’t even audition for parts where the hero uses violent force to be a hero.
I sometimes use a girl singer the way Henny Youngman uses his violin – as a bridge between one laugh and the next.
Nature never uses prime numbers. But mathematicians do.
Nature uses human imagination to lift her work of creation to even higher levels.
A man’s character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation.
The omniscient narrator is a bizarre technique, when you think about it, and no one uses it much anymore. But for the novels I want to write, it’s the only approach that makes sense to me.
There’s this poet named Walter Benton, I really like his stuff. He always uses landscapes as a metaphor for the female body.
Terrorism and extremism bear different names and labels. It uses diverse causes. But in each case, it is driven by distortion of religion and a misguided belief in its power to succeed.
Without even thinking about it, my son uses technology in almost everything he does, large and small.
I’m not actually perishing, but I do feel like I die a little every time someone uses ‘literally’ to mean ‘really.’
Hermione uses all these big long tongue twister words. I don’t know what she’s going on about half the time!
A really first-class company uses really fine stationery.
I have a very inquisitive mind, and I like to know. Like, if somebody uses a term and I don’t understand, I always look it up.
Pretty much everything on the web uses those two things: C and UNIX. The browsers are written in C. The UNIX kernel – that pretty much the entire Internet runs on – is written in C.
The human eye uses the eyebrow as an anchor point for the rest of the face. This is why a woman can look truly stunning without any makeup but perfectly shaped, full eyebrows.
Though the S8, like all premium Samsung phones, runs Android with the basic Google suite of apps, Samsung keeps trying to duplicate Android functions with its own software. It wants to be a software platform like its rival Apple, but it uses someone else’s operating system and core apps. Awkward.
I think good radio often uses the techniques of fiction: characters, scenes, a big urgent emotional question. And as in the best fiction, tone counts for a lot. But a lot of effective and interesting radio is based on one character who reacts to the world.
To say a scientist is not at all responsible is wrong. But to say that someone who invents a piece of knowledge or technology is responsible for all future uses is ridiculous. It doesn’t have to be that binary.
While Justin Trudeau uses the slogan, ‘Diversity is our strength,’ he has demonstrated time and again that he does not extend that diversity to thought or conscience.
Nature builds things that are antifragile. In the case of evolution, nature uses disorder to grow stronger. Occasional starvation or going to the gym also makes you stronger, because you subject your body to stressors and gain from them.
Today, medical devices such as catheters and stethoscopes use silver, and every hospital in the western world uses silver sulfadiazine to prevent infections.
Everyone uses art for different reasons: We use it as entertainment. We use it as an escape. We use it as comfort. Everyone uses it for different reasons.
I believe God takes the things in our lives – family, background, education – and uses them as part of his calling. It might not be to become a pastor. But I don’t think God wastes anything.
Golf has an ambivalent relationship with the environment. On one hand, it’s a great preserver of open spaces. Golf doesn’t pave the world – it helps to green the world. But the downside is, it uses a lot of fertilizer, pesticides and water.
To the extent that these advanced weapons or their components are treated as articles of commerce, perhaps for peaceful uses as in the Plowshare program, their cost would be well within the resources available to many large private organizations.
When I grew up, one of comedy idols was Rowan Atkinson, who of course is Mr. Bean and uses physical comedy. Same with Jim Carrey. Both of those guys. And Peter Sellers. Most of my comedy idols are physical comics.
After a long day at school, sports will help them rejuvenate their system. Especially in the digital era, where almost every kid uses a smartphone.
The re-use of a Dragon capsule is yet another example of how SpaceX uses cargo flights to prove out new technologies that can be later used on crewed flights, and is a key step toward a commercial return to the Moon.
I am all for a good drag out argument every now and then, but the person that talks the loudest and uses the most curse words is not necessarily the winner of the argument.
A weapon isn’t good or bad, depends on the person who uses it.
The only sexual act that is sinful is the one that uses or abuses.
I’d be somewhat disinclined to be responsible for the fortunes of a franchise that uses a sitcom as their philosophical north star.
The sensors have many potential practical uses – in Government buildings, train carriages, cargo containers, on a soldier’s lapel – and are a thousand times cheaper than current sensors that are used for the same purpose.
I just think it’s useful for people to know that even if you are off the telly you’re just an ordinary person who uses the Tube.
Ray Bradbury was the first author that I was really exposed to back in grade school. I’m a big Philip K. Dick fan, but the emotion and humanity that Bradbury brings to his stories and the way he uses sci-fi to get at the human heart is something that’s unique and for me incredibly influential.
I have faith that God often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad of our greatest calling.
I am completely turning into my mom. Me, trying to be stern, is her. Or when I make silly voices. My mom always uses weird voices if she’s talking to a kid or a dog. I’m the same person – completely my mother.
When you are doing a show, it can get really dull. You are sitting so long while they set up the lights, then you say a couple of lines, then they tear down the lights again. At least stunts are something that uses your physical energy a great deal.
The U.S. and Iraq will work together next year to shift Iraqi resources from unproductive subsidies to productive uses that enable Iraqis to earn livelihoods.
I like to be the only one who uses my toothbrush.
Where ‘Paranormal Activity’ really comes into its own is its rhetoric of legitimacy – how it uses itself to authenticate itself, and thus furthers the pretence of being real.
Prince Charles is definitely my hero; he uses his position to do only good in this world.
Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
In Houston everyone owns guns and uses ’em – sometimes just for the hell of it.
It seems extraordinary to have waited so long into one’s life to have found the part that actually uses your basic rhythm. And I think that’s always sort of what actors connect up with – their own sort of world.
My system uses no apparatus. The resistance of your own body is the best and safest apparatus.
We are not safe and secure when the government uses us as pawns to perpetrate violence against others. Our safety and security will come when we organize, love, and resist together.
My laboratory uses evolution to design new enzymes. No one really knows how to design them – they are tremendously complicated. But we are learning how to use evolution to make new ones, just as nature does.
We do not need to eat animals, wear animals, or use animals for entertainment purposes, and our only defense of these uses is our pleasure, amusement, and convenience.
He uses his good powers for evil, and that’s when it gets to the dangerous side of it.
In France, I am just Madame Campbell. In Jamaica, nobody uses my title.
Jon Jones is amazing; he’s so confident. He uses his elbows very well, and I think he’s a great talent.
In many cases, water stress is more about politics, economics, behaviour and governance than absolute water scarcity. Better planning is needed, to allocate water where societal need is greatest, and to allow trade-offs between alternative uses.
I am by no means suggesting that everyone who uses the neocon label is doing so as an anti-Semitic smear, but the word has been used often enough in that ugly context that it should make any person of goodwill think twice before employing it.
The public treasure has been duly applied to the uses to which it was appropriated by Parliament, and regular accounts have been annually laid before Parliament, of every article of expense.
An identity would seem to be arrived at by the way in which the person faces and uses his experience.
I guarantee you that’s what Jeff Gordon does. He uses everything the fans throw at him to stoke his fire and it drives him to be better at what he does.
If someone you know makes a bad decision or uses bad judgment, it doesn’t mean you have to allow that to alter your attitude. Why should you allow anyone else’s bad decisions to send you into a tailspin of misery?
A hacker is someone who uses a combination of high-tech cybertools and social engineering to gain illicit access to someone else’s data.
I’d really love to see a business model for higher education going forward that is actually affordable, that uses modern technology to reach scale and quality and that really reimburses the services rendered in a way that’s meaningful to everybody.
To minimize market uncertainty and achieve the maximum effect of its policies, the Federal Reserve is committed to providing the public as much information as possible about the uses of its balance sheet, plans regarding future uses of its balance sheet, and the criteria on which the relevant decisions are based.
Our fish, our recreation, our irrigation and all our uses of the Missouri River are threatened if the drought continues and the Corps of Engineers decisions aren’t changed.
‘I’ is the word everyone uses to refer to themselves. On the one hand, it points to a specific person, but it’s also this blank space that you can insert yourself into; it’s a chute into empathy.
History uses a unit of measure for time that is different from that of the lifespan of the individual, whereas man is only too ready to measure the evolution of history by his own yardstick.
There are still many challenges and questions that need to be addressed before optogenetics can be applied in humans for therapeutic uses.
Most science fiction is based on our knowledge now and uses that to project the future.
The thing that is so touching about – I can come right up and call him Mr. Simon. The thing that’s great about Mr. Simon is he really uses the audience as a partner, and they tell him what’s working and what’s not. So he’s always working on a play.
There are some sites that pay, but access to them is quite limited. And a very small chunk of the population uses the Internet. So, a director goes on YouTube only for better reach.
In every country except – industrial country except the United States, the government uses its massive purchasing power to negotiate drug prices. That’s one of the reasons prices are so much higher in the United States than in other countries.
There are uses to adversity, and they don’t reveal themselves until tested. Whether it’s serious illness, financial hardship, or the simple constraint of parents who speak limited English, difficulty can tap unexpected strengths.
I never imagined that divorce would be part of my life history or my family’s legacy. When people say that divorce can be more painful than death, I understand why. But like any great trial, God uses everything for good, if we allow Him to heal us.
The United States has an unfair advantage, as most of the popular cloud services, search engines, computer and mobile operating systems or web browsers are made by U.S. companies. When the rest of the world uses the net, they are effectively using U.S.-based services, making them a legal target for U.S. intelligence.
Trump seems to be implementing a form of coercive capitalism – in which the president publicly picks winners and losers and uses the power of the office to force corporate leaders to make specific business decisions.
It’s incredibly disturbing when a country, particularly your own country, uses discrimination as a basis for an investigation.
The problem is that the Iraqi people are facing atrocities from both sides – Zarqawi and also the American troops at times. The Zarqawi groups uses car bombs, the Americans use other bombs. You also know what they do in the prisons.
A writer is someone who tells you one thing so someday he can tell his readers another thing: what he was thinking but declined to say, or what he would have thought had he been wiser. A writer turns his life into material, and if you’re in his life, he uses yours, too.
You can find your way across this country using burger joints the way a navigator uses stars.
Every time someone uses a bathroom and they flush, all the bacteria is shot into the air.
The way ‘Coming Home’ uses music in general is incredible, but the final song that really kind of crescendos all of the emotion that the whole movie has kind of been building to is this song called ‘Once I Was’ by Tim Buckley.
America faces very real challenges. The climate crisis, inequality, stagnant wages, student debt – the list goes on. Rather than address these serious problems, Trump uses hate-filled rhetoric to divide America by race, religion, and ancestry.
At KaBOOM! we are crowd-sourcing a nationwide Map of Play that uses GIS data and user rankings to identify where the engaging playgrounds are located, but more importantly, where they are not.
Drake, the way he uses that Auto-Tune has always been attractive, hasn’t it?
I remember an old Singer sewing machine at home that belonged to my grandmother. It had a pedal. My mom taught me how to use it when I was 12 years old. I used to find it so intriguing, how a flat piece of material could be made into an object that had so many uses.
TV news dominates politics and is extremely low-bandwidth: it contains a few hundred words and rarely uses graphics properly.
No mainstream politician believes in open borders, but a policy that uses its prolonged treatment of detained people as an ongoing deterrent to others has a deep flaw at its heart.
Southeast Asia food uses many different types of spices which are quite new to me, like the curry leaves which I saw at the Kreta Ayer wet market in Chinatown. With such spices used in cooking, this usually imparts a strong aroma to Southeast Asian food, which appeals to the senses.
I love BioTherm and my Clarins moisturizer. I also use Eau Precieuse, which means ‘precious water.’ It’s a toner. Everyone calls it a ‘granny product,’ because it’s so old, and no one uses it anymore. But it has always been a part of my routine, so I always have to use it.
What is a historian, anyway? It is someone who uses facts to record the development of humanity.
McQueen is an astonishing film maker. He uses really unusual shots and builds incredible dramatic tension.
When someone builds a bridge, he uses engineers who have been certified as knowing what they are doing. Yet when someone builds you a software program, he has no similar certification, even though your safety may be just as dependent upon that software working as it is upon the bridge supporting your weight.
EarthEcho Expeditions represents the culmination of more than a decade of working with educators and youth from around the world. EarthEcho Expeditions uses the thrill of adventure to inspire and empower a new generation of environmental champions.
This thing called nationalism is a treasure that a country uses to try to develop and a nationality uses to try to survive. China has lost this treasure.
Women inspire me. Women in the airports, around the country in different cities, destinations around the world, inspire me with the way they express their individuality. I love watching women and discovering all the ways each person uses a color, pattern, a style, even a lipstick color. I’m a people watcher.
Gymnastics uses every single part of your body, every little tiny muscle that you never even knew.
The problem with dragons is that everyone uses them. All the time. When that happens, they become commonplace. A lot of people think you can just throw them into a story and suddenly whatever you’re writing is 28% cooler. But that doesn’t work. All that does is make dragons into some boring cliche.
From creating a new sovereign to affairs of the heart, majestic moments to everyday life, when monarchy wants to send a message it uses a photograph.
Mark Twain was a great traveler and he wrote three or four great travel books. I wouldn’t say that I’m a travel novelist but rather a novelist who travels – and who uses travel as a background for finding stories of places.
Homes and buildings, many of which are old and drafty, eat up 40 percent of the energy America uses. Such inefficiencies perpetuate our reliance on foreign oil, imperiling our national security and increasing our contribution to climate change.
I have just discovered the beautiful poetry of Soren Ulrik Thomsen. Danish is not the strongest of languages, but he uses it very well.
I am not a politician in prison, I am a political prisoner who uses jail to denounce Spain’s human rights violations.
On the one hand, life is made infinitely easy for the personality in that stimulations, interests, uses of time and consciousness are offered to it from all sides. They carry the person as if in a stream, and one needs hardly to swim for oneself.
I think that ‘The Sopranos’ uses music incredibly well.
Nothing is more despicable than a professional talker who uses his words as a quack uses his remedies.
