English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. device

    A contrivance or device may be either good or bad. A cheat is a mean advantage in a bargain; a fraud, any form of covert robbery or injury. Imposture is a deceitful contrivance for securing charity, credit, or consideration. A stratagem or maneuver may be of the good against the bad, as it were a skilful movement of war. A wile is usually but not necessarily evil.

    E'en children followed with endearing wile.

    Goldsmith Deserted Village, l. 184.

    A trick is often low, injurious, and malicious; we say a mean trick; the word is sometimes used playfully with less than its full meaning. A ruse or a blind may be quite innocent and harmless. An artifice is a carefully and delicately prepared contrivance for doing indirectly what one could not well do directly. A device is something studied out for promoting an end, as in a mechanism; the word is used of indirect action, often, but not necessarily directed to an evil, selfish, or injurious end. Finesse is especially subtle contrivance, delicate artifice, whether for good or evil. Compare FRAUD.

    art, artifice, blind, cheat, contrivance, craft, cunning, dodge, finesse, fraud, guile, imposture, invention, machination, maneuver, ruse, stratagem, subterfuge, trick, wile

    Antonyms:
    artlessness, candor, fairness, frankness, guilelessness, honesty, ingenuousness, innocence, openness, simplicity, sincerity, truth

The systems must also be widely adopted, but that will not happen if people do not trust them, for there to be trust, the tool must protect privacy, be voluntary, and store data on an individuals device rather than in a centralized repository.

    Tamez says even if a scan shows an empty hidden compartment it could pay off down the road. The imager gives us the opportunity to, once we find that compartment, scan it. If its empty we never have to tell the bad guy that we found it and all we can do is start doing our research and putting lookouts on this particular vehicle so we can target it at a later time, said Tamez. Tamezsays it saves his team time, money, and officers lives. The alternative is paying for damages on a vehicle, the alternative is having your officers come in contact with fentanyl and possibly overdosing, theres just so many, so many secondary and tertiaryeffects that are negative that can be avoided with a device like this, said Tamez.
