How to use overlay in a sentence?

  1. J. G. Ballard:

    I believe that organic sex, body against body, skin area against skin area, is becoming no longer possible, simply because if anything is to have any meaning for us it must take place in terms of the values and experiences of the media landscape. What we're getting is a whole new order of sexual fantasies, involving a different order of experiences, like car crashes, like travelling in jet aircraft, the whole overlay of new technologies, architecture, interior design, communications, transport, merchandising. These things are beginning to reach into our lives and change the interior design of our sexual fantasies. We've got to recognize that what one sees through the window of the TV screen is as important as what one sees through a window on the street.

  2. Ruy Teixeira:

    It's another overlay to the conclusion that there are some parts of the white non-college population that are open to Democrats and can be moved a few points in your direction.

  3. Merle Maigre:

    The goal of this exercise is to test and train the defense side, and Red Team is providing fire to make the defense stronger, what makes the exercise special is the focus on specialized systems, such as electricity, telecommunications, public utilities, which ultimately are all controlled by IT. But on top of that, we have married a strategic overlay, so within the Blue Teams there is also a layer of strategic decision makers -- policy experts, legal experts, strategic communications experts.

  4. Toby Campbell-Gray:

    They will be playing the 'short' side via the ETF. Hedge funds are pretty nimble, they can get in and out of these things pretty fast, but there is a large 'short' overlay on Greece.

  5. Richard Peck:

    The political overlay of this case is remarkable, that's probably the one thing that sets it apart from any other extradition case I've ever seen. It's got this cloud of politicization hanging over it.
