English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. inauguration

    The Latin commencement is more formal than the Saxon beginning, as the verb commence, is more formal than begin. Commencement is for the most part restricted to some form of action, while beginning has no restriction, but may be applied to action, state, material, extent, enumeration, or to whatever else may be conceived of as having a first part, point, degree, etc. The letter A is at the beginning (not the commencement) of every alphabet. If we were to speak of the commencement of the Pacific Railroad, we should be understood to refer to the enterprise and its initiatory act; if we were to refer to the roadway we should say "Here is the beginning of the Pacific Railroad." In the great majority of cases begin and beginning are preferable to commence and commencement as the simple, idiomatic English words, always accurate and expressive. "In the beginning was the word," John i, 1. An origin is the point from which something starts or sets out, often involving, and always suggesting causal connection; as, the origin of evil; the origin of a nation, a government, or a family. A source is that which furnishes a first and continuous supply, that which flows forth freely or may be readily recurred to; as, the source of a river; a source of knowledge; a source of inspiration; fertile land is a source (not an origin) of wealth. A rise is thought of as in an action; we say that a lake is the source of a certain river, or that the river takes its rise from the lake. Motley wrote of "The Rise of the Dutch Republic." Fount, fountain, and spring, in their figurative senses, keep close to their literal meaning. Compare CAUSE.

  2. Andrew Wheeler:

    While that’s flattering, I am not thinking about it, no, i could have put my hat in the ring for the administrator. I wasn’t interested in that. I am still not interested in that. Trump said Wheeler would assume duties as acting administrator of the EPA on July 9. I have no doubt that Andy will continue on with our great and lasting EPA agenda. We have made tremendous progress and the future of the EPA is very bright! Trump tweeted on July 5. Here are 3 things you need to know about the interim EPA chief before he officially changes roles. A former coal industry lobbyist, Wheeler helped lead an industry fight against regulations aimed at protecting Americans' health and addressing climate change. Many in the industry argued that the regulations would stifle business. Throughout his decades-long career, Wheeler has reportedly lobbied for at least 20 different companies, includingSargento Foods Inc., Whirlpool Corporation, and Xcel Energy, among others. During his time as a lobbyist, Wheelerworked alongside Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to reduce the Bears Ears National Monument in Utah by 85 percent and reserve a piece of the land for uranium mining, Fortune Magazine reported. In recent years, Wheeler has lobbied for Energy Fuels Resources Inc. and Murray Energy Corporation, which is run by longtime Trump supporter Robert Murray, who spent roughly $300,000 on the president's inauguration, according toThe New York Times. Wheeler worked for the EPA in the early 1990s, focusing on chemicals and toxic substance-related issues during the Bush and Clinton administrations. He later transitioned into the role of staff chief of the Senate Environment Committee andserved as counsel to Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla. Wheeler joined the international law firmFaegre Baker Daniels after his stint at the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. During his time at the firm, he helped counsel a variety of clients on comprehensive legislative, regulatory and operational strategies, the firm states on its website. He worked on every major piece of environmental and energy-related legislation before Congress over the span of a decade, ProPublica reported.

    Sammy Davis Jr. helped to get JFK elected and then JFK and his campaign decided to pay Sammy back by not allowing him to go to the inauguration because he was part of an interracial marriage, it was Dean Martin who stood up for his friend and said, ‘I’m not going to be part of the inauguration if Sammy isn’t going.’ That really impressed me. He had a sense of honor. The more I got to know Dean Martin the man, the more I grew to truly love and admire him.
