How to use double in a sentence?

  1. Christopher Weafer:

    Unless crude prices double, they are not achieving the (growth) forecast this year.

  2. Domingo Garcia:

    The video clearly shows that Rubén García Villalpando was shot while unarmed with his hands in the air by this officer, it once again shows that there is a double standard of justice in America. Again we see an unarmed individual shot by a police officer who gets away with murder.

  3. Health Minister Katsunobu Kato:

    We deeply apologize for the situation caused by our oversight, we will take all necessary measures, like double checks, to prevent a recurrence.

  4. Jim Gray:

    In Washington, Senator Paul has put his own ambition ahead of Kentuckians and is behind policies that would hurt Kentucky families, he voted for a plan that would double healthcare costs for our seniors and supports privatizing Social Security. He supported massive cuts of over $160 billion to our military, and Senator Paul signed a pledge to protect tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas.

  5. Simon Hanson:

    Drummers can have the effect of two bass drums by having a pedal which is double where you only have one and the mechanism will play as if it's a double bass drum. It's similar to that in a way, i think because the drummer's not directly controlling it from his brain - although it looks like might be able to do that in the future, which has its own complications - it would for me be an add-on to a kit so I could trigger a sample or a different instrument. The basic drum kit is great. Two hands are okay and when I'm producing and there's other drummers playing I get them to play with one hand because I think drums with one hand sounds better in many ways.
