How to use major in a sentence?

  1. David Harsanyi:

    This week alone, four big scoops were run by major news organizations — written by top reporters and presumably churned through layers of scrupulous editing — that turned out to be completely wrong: Reuters, Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal, and others reported that the special counsel’s office had subpoenaed Donald Trump’s records from Deutsche Bank. They weren’t, aBC reported that Trump had directed Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials before the election. He didn’t (as far as we know). The New York Times ran a story that showed K.T. McFarland had acknowledged collusion. She didn’t. Then CNN topped off the week by falsely reporting that the Trump campaign had been offered access to hacked Democratic National Committee emails before they were published.

  2. Rob Manfred:

    We drew straws for that game and I lost. My good client friends at Major League Baseball did not come through with a ticket for me, i was outside( the park) that night. My wife is still mad about missing it.

  3. Montoya Major:

    My initial thought, when I found out I was pregnant, was, What am I going to do with a child ? i was living in Florida, away from all my family and friends. Having kids was never a thought of mine. I wanted to pursue my degree and establish a career. MOM SHOCKED TO FIND POLICE AT HOUSE PLAYING BASKETBALL WITH HER SONS I knew that now, my entire thought process would have to be re-evaluated, and I needed to figure out what to do next, she continued. Though the director of Majors academic program told her it would be nearly impossible to complete her studies with two babies on the way, she remained laser-focused on her studies, attending class every single day literally until the day I gave birth, as per Facebook. In May 2018, little Makenna and Makinlee were born early via C-section. One week later, Montoya Major was back in the classroom. The proud mom told Fox News that she never would have been able to weather the challenging season of life without the support of family and friends, especially her dad. Her father raised her as a widow, and always championed the importance of education as his daughter was the first in their family to attend college. Throughout this entire journey my father encouraged me the most although he was not physically there. My father and I are very close and have always been inseparable after my mother passed when I was young, Montoya Major told Fox News. Whenever I had an episode of wanting to quit school he always encouraged me that it would be worth it in the end. Nevertheless, the collegian would later reflect on that journey as the hardest year of my life balancing her studies and clinical rotations with caring for two newborns on her own.

  4. Audrey Benoualid:

    Major labels would undoubtedly, and have already begun to, argue that their copyrights (and their artists’ intellectual property rights) are being infringed.

  5. The IEA:

    How low the market's floor will be is anybody's guess. But the sell-off is having an impact. A price recovery - barring any major disruption - may not be imminent, but signs are mounting that the tide will turn.
