How to use mastermind in a sentence?

  1. Benjamin F Sullivan:

    God is discovered entirely through creation - the brilliance of a sunset, the powerful roar of a waterfall, the symphony of sounds you hear in the heart of the forest, or the vastness of space and its countless stars. God is the mastermind behind all matter - every earth shattering scientific discovery and mystery that is yet to be unraveled was dreamed and enacted by God.

  2. Max Abrahms:

    Think tank analysts have often referred to him as a savvy militant group leader, even a mastermind. Thats because he was the leader of the most feared terrorist group in the world.

  3. Martin County:

    To me, as I look back on the video, it almost looks like a TV production, we had a heads up, quite a bit in advance, we were intimately involved in planning for the arrest. Canady, according to WPTV, was the alleged mastermind who unknowingly had worked with a tipster who secretly was working with the FBI.

  4. Eva Longoria:

    Huffman's lawyers argued that the sentencing guidelines in those cases were much higher and reserved for the mastermind of schemes, not mere participants. Prosecutors, meanwhile, had argued that universities and testing companies were the victims of the schemes, and the amount that parents paid should correspond to the penalties' severity.But US Probation and Pretrial Services, which prepares pre-sentence investigation reports for each defendant, has argued overall, that the universities and testing companies suffered no monetary harm, and the price of the parents' bribes is therefore not relevant to any sentences. Actress Felicity Huffman loved ones wrote letters of support to the judgeMacy and other loved ones submitted letters to Judge Indira Talwani on Huffman's behalf, pleading for leniency. Each letter outlined Huffman's loyalty and commitment to the writer — an attempt to show Actress Felicity Huffman role in the admissions scam was an outlier in Actress Felicity Huffman life. Macy also shed some light on the immediate aftermath of Huffman's early morning arrest by the FBI in March.Two days after the arrest, Macy wrote, their eldest daughter was headed for an audition at a school she had her heart set on — one that didn't require SAT scores. But when Actress Felicity Huffman got off the plane, the school emailed Actress Felicity Huffman, formally rescinding its audition invitation because of the scandal. Eva Longoria and other celebrities write letters of support for actress Felicity Huffman ahead of Eva Longoria sentencingMacy wrote Eva Longoria and other celebrities daughter.

  5. David Howman:

    You mold your style according the presidential requirements, i was a lawyer, a barrister who went to court every day. Every judge is different and you adapt your argument according to the judge so it sort of comes naturally. Howman, who often represented athletes in New Zealand who could not afford his services and paid in cricket bats and All-Blacks rugby jerseys, has been there through all the highs and lows. When WADA opened in 2003, drugs in sport had already become a worldwide epidemic and fair play was merely a quaint idea. Doping was firmly entrenched in the sporting culture, largely tolerated, if not tacitly accepted, by those who competed in everything from cycling's Tour de France to baseball's World Series. With no meaningful out-of-competition testing, a mish-mash of sanctions and banned substance lists, entrepreneurs such as BALCO mastermind Victor Conte operated in near impunity, pushing out designer steroids faster than tests could be developed to detect them. From a small headquarters in Montreal, WADA has grown into a global agency with four regional offices and 35 laboratories, although four are currently under suspension.
