How to use bare in a sentence?

  1. 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. .

  2. James Rimmer:

    The ADA only covers the' bare essentials' of accessibility, which generally relate to' bricks and mortar' only, most commercial and private fitness facilities are in the early stages of access. Hospital-based fitness facilities are on the other end of the spectrum, with much higher rates of accessibility and access to all areas of the facility.

  3. Rosa DeLauro:

    Workplaces need to respond to the reality of family life in the 21st century, and allowing employees to have seven sick days a year is a bare minimum, the fact that the United States is one of just a handful of countries that does not require paid family or sick leave is nothing short of shameful.

  4. Clive Lewis:

    Over the last 50 years corporate interests have changed stadiums more than anything else. Years ago, stadiums were just bare concrete and no seats, just bleachers, today, it's a lot more about the corporate experience -- the internal lounge, corporate boxes, restaurants. Which means that people are coming to the venue an hour or two before the event and not leaving for an hour or two afterwards.

  5. Ernest Hemingway:

    The first and most important thing of all, at least for writers today, is to strip language clean, to lay it bare down to the bone.
