How to use bare in a sentence?

  1. Gotz Aly:

    With Germany’s financial situation worsening by the day, the Nazi leadership in Berlin was keen to forge ahead with its annexation of Czechoslovakia and its domestic pogroms against Jews. The state treasury needed more money. Despite various accounting tricks, the government was just barely avoiding bankruptcy; if nothing was done, Germany’s financial problems would quickly be laid bare. The only hope was to go on the offensive.

  2. Gregory Waters:

    This project has laid bare Facebook’s inability or unwillingness to efficiently address extremist content on their site, the failure to effectively police its platform has allowed Facebook to become a place where extensive IS supporting networks exist, propaganda is disseminated people are radicalized and new supporters are recruited.

  3. Angelique Hilaire:

    I can't afford to rent anywhere else, every time it rains I pray to God for it to stop. But what can I do ? Even a short downpour can leave the capital flooded as piles of rubbish on the streets and debris filled canals block drains, which exacerbates flooding. Natural disasters linked to climate change will only get more frequent and extreme in the future, experts say. Decades of deforestation have left Haiti even more exposed to natural disasters, with less than three percent of its original forest cover still intact, according to the UNDP. This causes soil erosion and reduces the ability of soil to retain water, making Haiti more vulnerable to flooding and landslides. During heavy rainfall, there are few trees to stop water washing down the bare mountains. While 5.5 million tree seedlings have been planted in Haiti by the UNDP since 2010, not enough has been done to stop people cutting down trees in the first place. Selling charcoal, which comes from burning wood, is used for cooking and is a key source of income for many Haitians living in the countryside. .

  4. Andrew Peadon:

    They're just selling their stock, trying to hang onto the bare minimum, the pain here will last another four or five years after the drought, that's for sure.

  5. Ehsan Sehgal:

    Waiting and expecting a destination in the way of a mirage; it results in another optical illusion, as a bare reality, such a journey carries only the failure of time and life.
