English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. involved

    That is complex which is made up of several connected parts. That is compound in which the parts are not merely connected, but fused, or otherwise combined into a single substance. In a composite object the different parts have less of unity than in that which is complex or compound, but maintain their distinct individuality. In a heterogeneous body unlike parts or particles are intermingled, often without apparent order or plan. Conglomerate (literally, globed together) is said of a confused mingling of masses or lumps of various substances. The New England pudding-stone is a conglomerate rock. In a complex object the arrangement and relation of parts may be perfectly clear; in a complicated mechanism the parts are so numerous, or so combined, that the mind can not readily grasp their mutual relations; in an intricate arrangement the parts are so intertwined that it is difficult to follow their windings; things are involved which are rolled together so as not to be easily separated, either in thought or in fact; things which are tangled or entangled mutually hold and draw upon each other. The conception of a material object is usually complex, involving form, color, size, and other elements; a clock is a complicated mechanism; the Gordian knot was intricate; the twining serpents of the Laocoon are involved. We speak of an abstruse statement, a complex conception, a confused heap, a heterogeneous mass, a tangled skein, an intricate problem; of composite architecture, an involved sentence; of the complicated or intricate accounts of a great business, the entangled accounts of an incompetent or dishonest bookkeeper.

  1. Joe Votel:

    That was pretty devastating. It was devastating for me. It was devastating for, obviously, the units that were involved. And I think it was pretty significant for the nation.

  2. Sheryl McCollum:

    I think they are also stumped, because he doesn't find anything until he is out of the sight of law enforcement. There is nobody there, next to him when he finds the item, nobody is wearing gloves, and look here. Here comes a man walking his dog. This scene is not secured, there is no crime scene tape, they haven't cordoned off anything or stopped anyone from coming into the area. Whole thing is odd. And every single time the parents are involved with something it just leaves us baffled.

  3. Donald Trump:

    Apple, this is one case, this is a case that certainly we should be able to get into the phone, and we should find out what happened, why it happened, and maybe there's other people involved and we have to do that.

    Excessive and unnecessary force can happen when situations could have been handled in cooler manner but is unnecessarily and unduly escalated. One way it happens, someone shows up and the way they present is in a way that raises the temperature, this situation could've involved no force but ends up involving significant force. That's unnecessary, excessive. Lots of situations weren't criminal, just problematic policing.
