How to use contestation in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    La vie moderne est pleine de défis, tels que les exigences quotidiennes, les délais, les tracas et frustrations. Chaque fois que la menace de contestation emporte sur la perception qu'on a de son / sa capacité à gérer cette menace, il peut être un début de stress. Je trouve intéressant que William Shakespeare avait offert une stratégie parfaite pour gérer le stress - dans sa célèbre pièce "Hamlet". Dans ce jeu, Hamlet fait une déclaration puissante: "il n'y a rien soit bon ou mauvais, mais la pensée qui le rend si." Dans cette phrase, Shakespear nous enseigne que si nous changeons nos pensées sur une situation potentiellement dangereuse, nous devrions être en mesure de faire face non seulement avec le stress, mais aussi de réduire notre stress de façon significative. Maintenant c'est un fait bien établi en psychologie que la pensée positive, et transformer la menace en une opportunité potntial, nous permet de nous protéger contre les effets secondaires néfastes du stress ..... et William Shakespeare savait ce fait plus de 400 il ya des années. C'est incroyable!

  2. Daunte Wright:

    The common thread is [an] understanding of all social, economicand political relations as a contestation for power between a class of oppressors (i.a., rich, White, heterosexual, male) and a class of oppressed.

  3. Nomboniso Gasa:

    This man is laying the basis for a serious contestation that South Africa is going to have, he is pushing the boundaries. He has started with the most vulnerable - those who always suffer prejudice - but he's also saying to government and everybody else who is opposed to his absolute authority as a Zulu king: 'You watch it.'.
