How to use context in a sentence?

  1. Read More'They:

    It would be an injustice to judge someone based on an interview that's being used out of context, they're trying to contradict how John Wayne lived John Wayne life, and how John Wayne lived John Wayne life was who John Wayne was. So any discussion of removing John Wayne name from the airport should include the full picture of the life of John Wayne and not be based on a single outlier interview from half a century ago.

  2. Eli Wilson:

    This as a very slippery slope, in this context, it opens another can of worms to allow employers to use them as a wage replacement when worker earnings are already not particularly high.

  3. Joy Lawn:

    Both indoor and outdoor air pollution have an important effect on the health and development of children, and not just in the stereotypical 'polluted cities' context but also for very poor rural families who cook indoors, clean water is taken for granted by families in high-income countries, and yet those children in the hottest climates, facing the greatest risks of infectious diseases, are the very ones with least access to clean water.

  4. Anwar Gargash:

    Mogherini's Guardian op-ed lacks context and understanding of Iran's regional and aggressive policy and sectarian overtones that have polarized the Middle East her task of 'regional cooperative framework' must evolve from a clear understanding of Iran's interventionist and sectarian foreign policy and ensuing polarization.

  5. Penn Badgley:

    The point of my comment was not to confess a personal trauma, i was speaking about the way emotional and physical boundaries are violated for someone in the public eye, who is seen as an object of desire. Depending on so many factors, it can range from conscious abuse to something very unconscious -- and that is the point I was making, cautiously, in the context of a conversation about fanaticism and cultural norms which support manipulative or abusive behavior. These are the same norms which support predatory men, but not exclusively predatory men. They affect, and infect, us all.
