How to use category in a sentence?

  1. John Kelly III:

    Going forward we're going to see more falling in that category, only because the technology is advancing so fast.

  2. Janice Dean:

    We haven’t had a Category 3 hit the U.S. in 10 years – I think there’s a lot of complacency out there, i think it’s very important to remind people the scope of what can happen with the hurricane season.

  3. Evan Myers:

    Kottlowski said. How fast or slow this non-tropical system moves will be an important factor on where Irma is steered this weekend into next week. The speed of this feature will determine when and how much Irma gets pulled northward or whether Irma continues on more of a westward track. This amount of uncertainty means that the entire southern and eastern U.S. should monitor Irma this week. Residents along the coast are urged to start preparing and making sure plans are in place to deal with the worst case scenario. This includes plans on how to evacuate and what is important to bring with you and your family. As we saw just 10 days ago with Harvey, it is important to be ready to evacuate, Evan Myers said. Be prepared with a list of items you would need to take if you had 30 minutes' notice or one hour's notice or six hours or a day to evacuate. Due to Irma following so closely on Irma's heels and since FEMA and other government resources will be strained, more preparation and storm aftermath may rest on individuals, Evan Myers said. It may be crucial to evacuate ahead of the storm, so preparation is key. If Irma were to make landfall as a Category 4 or 5 storm somewhere in the U.S., it would be in historical territory. The U.S. has not sustained a direct hit from two Category 4 or above hurricanes in more than 100 years.

  4. Justin Hochberg:

    The Academy Awards have been trying to figure out how do they incorporate pop culture icons like' Black Panther,' so what do they do ? They try something like the [ briefly planned ] popular category. But nobody wants to win the popular category at The Academy Awards, because it's insulting.

  5. Tim Dixon:

    And maybe that's the blueprint for a future candidate, it's to speak to the values that the country shares and to say we're more than just a demographic category. We're more than just a political partisan.
