How to use dropping in a sentence?

  1. Marc Siegel:

    You assume these guys are dropping dead because of what goes on in the ring, but it’s not true. Most of that is staged, occasionally someone gets hurt in the ring … the real reason they die young is because a lot of them are drug addicts, a lot of them are taking cocaine, they bulk up using steroids and it puts a big strain on the heart. They are always under the stress of this performance. They don’t have a natural life ; they are always hyped up and they are always trying to calm down.

  2. Steven Englander:

    The FOMC will be afraid that dropping patience without making some reference to the USD or international asset market conditions will lead to an even faster USD pickup, paradoxically, if they are serious about hiking mid-year, a USD breakout may limit their options.

  3. Sidharth Kaushal:

    It would be unusually risky to take the sort of actions that The Russians claims to have taken -- including dropping bombs in front of a foreign vessel, the Russians have been working to push the narrative that Royal Navy acted provocatively and was driven away -- which might be both for domestic consumption and to reinforce international perceptions of Russia's red lines.

  4. Barry Schwartz:

    After you have a blowout day like you did yesterday and then you had eight days in a row prior to that of dropping, one has to wonder if it is a dead-cat bounce or one has to wonder if there is follow-through, and so I can understand the market being tentative today.

  5. Brenda Kirwan:

    These people might have been enduring an awful lot of what's going on in the town at the moment -- people knocking at the door looking for money because a loved one owes money, they could have their house smashed up, they could have had car smashed up, constantly being intimidated on the street, youth services have been cut -- there are now a few more things for younger children, but once they're in their late teens, there's very little there. Even education in school needs to be prioritized more. Young people are dropping out of school because of drugs, so we need to do more to keep them in education, and to get educated about drugs, because it's so easy to get into, but it's so hard to get out of. We have to show our children that there's more to life than this.
