How to use adverse in a sentence?

  1. Barnabas Chipindu:

  3. Matthew Weaver:

    Prior reports have documented that high school students who slept less than eight hours were at increased risk of adverse self-behaviors, our study adds to this literature by using a larger updated data set over a longer study interval and by incorporating more granular sleep information and looking at a wider array of risk taking behaviors.

  4. James Spiotto:

    This could have a very adverse effect on the use of special revenues all over.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Loyalty is one of the most valuable qualities that's becoming exceedingly scarce, in personal as much as in professional life. The people and organizations who have been deeply hurt by someone whom they had trusted as a true friend or a loyal employee would surely underscore the fact that loyalty is indeed a dual-edged sword, i.e. something that can cut both ways. And yet, Loyalty is one of the most noble and admirable qualities IMHO. My respectful salute to all those exceptional individuals who have remained always loyal and ever faithful to their friends, families, organizations and nations, despite the challenging times and absolutely adverse circumstances. Our world would be totally empty, hollow, and shallow without such wonderful people. Long Live Loyalty! Kudos to Semper Fidelis!
