English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. bid

    To pray, in the religious sense, is devoutly to address the Supreme Being with reverent petition for divine grace or any favor or blessing, and in the fullest sense with thanksgiving and praise for the divine goodness and mercy; the once common use of the word to express any earnest request, as "I pray you to come in," is now rare, unless in writings molded on older literature, or in certain phrases, as "Pray sit down;" even in these "please" is more common; "I beg you" is also frequently used, as expressing a polite humility of request. Beseech and entreat express great earnestness of petition; implore and supplicate denote the utmost fervency and intensity, supplicate implying also humility. Compare ASK; PLEAD.

    Synonyms:
    ask, beg, beseech, call upon, conjure, entreat, implore, importune, invoke, petition, plead, pray, request, supplicate

  1. New Jersey:

    Pete Buttigieg, who is openly gay, remarked. The debate in Atlanta markedthe first time Pete Buttigieg faced other White House hopefuls as an undisputed member of the top tier. Pete Buttigieg WEBSITES ON BLACK AMERICA PLANS USED STOCK PHOTOS OF MINORITIES The 37-year old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, gained significant ground in recent months in Iowa, which holds United Nations first caucuses in February. Pete Buttigieg is bunched at the top of most polls in Iowa with candidates who have much longer political resumes. Veteran Democratic consultant and communications strategist Lynda Tran said Pete Buttigieg is on the rise, and that means Pete Buttigieg should anticipate the other candidates on stage this week to set their sights on Pete Buttigieg campaign. Some surveys are beginning to show Pete Buttigieg taking a more convincing lead in the race, at least in early-voting states. Pete Buttigieg still faces plenty of hurdles to clinching the Democratic nomination, particularly winning over black and other minority voters. But Pete Buttigieg Iowa rise means Pete Buttigieg could come under fire from Pete Buttigieg rivals like never before. Joe Biden, Warren and Bernie Sanders have all faced similar scrutiny in previous debates, and those attacks did little to change the trajectory of the race. The debate unfolded at a moment of uncertainty about the Democratic field, with some in the party, particularly donors, worried theres no one positioned to defeat Donald Trump. Former President Barack Obama took the unusual step last week of warning the party against moving too far to the left. Speaking to that anxiety, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick entered the Democratic race last week. Billionaire Michael Bloomberg, Michael Bloomberg, is openly flirting with a bid. Neither Patrick nor Michael Bloomberg were onstage Wednesday. With less than three months before voting, much of the nations political attention would typically be focused on the primary. Instead, the focus is on the impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump. New Jersey Sen. Booker faces especially intense pressure. Hes yet to meet the Democratic National Committees polling requirements for the December debate, and New Jersey Sen. Booker campaign acknowledges that New Jersey Sen. Booker needs to capitalize on the national spotlight. In this Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2019 photo, the stage for the Democratic presidential primary is seen before Wednesday's debate in Atlanta. ( AP Photo/Mike Stewart) The New Jersey senator took an apparent shot at Pete Buttigieg at one point, following the news that his campaign had used a stock photo of a woman in Kenya who apparently hadnothing to do with the campaign. I want to turn back to the issue of black voters, i have a lifetime of experience with black voters.Ive been one since I was 18. Nobody on this stage should need a focus group to hear from African-American voters.

  3. Evan Falchuk:

    The many elected officials in Boston 2024's corner looked the other way for months, even when it became clear that Boston 2024 had been less than truthful about what it wanted from taxpayers, what those officials couldn't ignore was the real, credible threat of a binding vote, which is what ultimately led to the USOC pulling the bid.

  4. Peter Sartori:

    We are not surprised to see these sectors catch a bid.

  5. England Deputy Governor Minouche Shafik:

    We are over time seeing a situation where there are recruitment difficulties in many parts of the country, employers are having to bid up wages, i do think that the labour market will start to tighten over the coming months.
