English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. distribute

    Allot, originally to assign by lot, applies to the giving of a definite thing to a certain person. A portion or extent of time is allotted; as, I expect to live out my allotted time. A definite period is appointed; as, the audience assembled at the appointed hour. Allot may also refer to space; as, to allot a plot of ground for a cemetery; but we now oftener use select, set apart, or assign. Allot is not now used of persons. Appoint may be used of time, space, or person; as, the appointed day; the appointed place; an officer was appointed to this station. Destine may also refer to time, place, or person, but it always has reference to what is considerably in the future; a man appoints to meet his friend in five minutes; he destines his son to follow his own profession. Assign is rarely used of time, but rather of places, persons, or things. We assign a work to be done and assign a man to do it, who, if he fails, must assign a reason for not doing it. That which is allotted, appointed, or assigned is more or less arbitrary; that which is awarded is the due requital of something the receiver has done, and he has right and claim to it; as, the medal was awarded for valor. Compare APPORTION.

    appropriate, confiscate, deny, refuse, resume, retain, seize, withhold

  4. Northrop Grumman:

    . The new strike bomber will start deploying in about a decade. The aircraft is expected to replace the nearly four-decades old B-1 as well as the legendary B-52 Stratofortress that has served the country for about six decades. Related : Marine Corps ' new helicopter completes Marine Corps ' new helicopter first flight This new bomber will be fully loaded with lots of technologies and next-gen innovations that are cloaked in secrecy. Marine Corps ' new helicopter may even withstand nuclear weapon-generated electromagnetic pulses( EMPs) and still operate. What will Marine Corps ' new helicopter be like ? The military has kept details of the wish list for its new bomber classified. During the Super Bowl, Northrop Grumman’s ad featured a new aircraft shrouded in mystery – literally cloaked at one point. Some industry experts believe this was a representation of Northrop’s vision for the new mysterious bomber. B-2 We can look to the B-2 bomber, also made by Northrop Grumman, for an idea of what we might expect. The B-2 aircraft has been a mainstay for the military with The B-2 aircraft stealth long-range and big payload strike bomber capabilities. Related : Navy taps Raytheon for sophisticated' last chance' gun system The B-2 Spirit Bomber carries a crew of two and took its first flight in 1989 and entered the operational fleet in 1993. The original B-2 fleet was 21 aircraft. The four 19,000-pound-thrust F118-GE engines give the B-2 its power, allowing it to fly more than 600 miles per hour. With a 172-foot wingspan, the B-2 can fly to a ceiling of 50,000 feet. B-2 is built for stealth. During the Cold War, it was designed to beat air defense systems, penetrating deep into Soviet Union airspace and deliver a nuclear bomb if necessary. Cold War design allows it to evade radar and makes it tough to detect. Instead of metal, the structure is made from advanced composites like resin-impregnated graphite fiber. Related : Meet' Viper' - the newest F-16 Fighter The aircraft can travel a very long range - to approximately 6,000 nautical miles. If the aircraft is refueled while in the air, then it can fly even farther - an additional 4,000 miles without landing. The B-2 Spirit Bomber can carry more than 40,000 pounds of nuclear or conventional munitions – that’s the kind of power that can dramatically change the battle space in one flight. The aircraft is designed to deliver these munitions precisely on target even in adverse weather conditions. Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri is home to the majority of the current B-2 fleet. The aircraft has deployed recently in combat in Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq. Related : 11 stunning F-22 fighter jet images Since it was introduced more than 20 years ago, many advances have been incorporated to improve the B-2's lethality. The aircraft’s ability to receive updated target data while in the midst of a mission was also improved. Other upgrade programs improved the B-2’s capabilities to collect, process and then distribute battlefield data to teams throughout the world. The sleek B-2 has a unique flying wing design that supports its radar evasion and hard to detect design. The Super Bowl commercial showed a sort of bat wing shape, similar to B-2, but the specs of the new plane have remained secret. The Air Force has made the right decision for our nation's security, as the company that developed and delivered the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, we look forward to providing The Air Force with a highly-capable and affordable next-generation Long-Range Strike Bomber.

  5. Fraser Engerman:

    We are disappointed with the outcome of this trial. Fast Facts and the law do not support the verdict. We believe the trial court committed significant legal errors in allowing the case to go before a jury on a flawed legal theory that is inconsistent with Ohio law, as we have said throughout this process, we never manufactured or marketed opioids nor did we distribute them to the' pill mills' and internet pharmacies that fueled this crisis.
