How to use indicate in a sentence?

  1. Carlos Saladrigas:

    If President Miguel Diaz-Canel is given the post of party secretary, it would strengthen his ability to take decisions and it might augur well for more expansive reforms, if, however, someone else is appointed, especially from the ‘old guard’, it would possibly indicate... continuing economic stagnation.

  2. Mal Pancoast:

    A new lens to look through. Hear the pain in people's speaking. People who have an ear to hear can hear. You will no longer tolerate what you used to tolerate. A second point of reality. Declare a new future. There are no right answers. There is no is. Give people breakdowns. It's the loving thing to do. What's being revealed here? Dogs don't have things wrong. Wrong disempowers people. Upsets indicate a right that's been violated. Notice when you are angry that you are the only one around. The only constant thing is you. Business is made up. It's invented. We invent our world through language. If it really turns you on, you may want to inform your face. There is no right way. A chair is only a chair because we say it's a chair.

  3. Stefan Worrall:

    We've had a decidedly more bullish mood these last few days, with a bit of encouragement coming from oil prices, a bit of encouragement from China's trade data, and the yen is obviously playing a factor, these are all very encouraging signs that at the very minimum indicate that selling pressure has eased, and which hopefully mark some degree of more sustainable optimism. But that's hard to say for certain given how many people got caught on the wrong side of false dawns and dead cat bounces last quarter.

  4. Barack Obama:

    We have a number of women candidates and we have one gay candidate. And those candidates are going to have barriers if they win the nomination, or they win the general election -- just like I did, you can overcome that resistance if the way you are framing these issues and messages indicate,' Look, I'm part of an American tradition... of opening up opportunity.'.

  5. Prince Abdulaziz:

    For a major reserve holder, oil producer and exporter such as Saudi Arabia, our focus has always been on the long-term trends shaping the oil market, rather than being a commodity in decline, as some would like to portray, supply and demand patterns indicate that the long-term fundamentals of the oil complex remain robust.
