How to use overload in a sentence?

  1. Robert Wickens:

    It's weird it is kind of a mental overload my brain was exploding from figuring out how to use the hand brakes the feeling of it and everything, it is a lot of work to do in a short amount of time.

  2. Thomas Werner:

    Loading processes offer so much flexibility that the overload on the networks can be reduced by deferring loading times or reducing the load that is supplied, this happens through the digitization of hardware and software and with communication technology.

  3. Parker Ellen:

  4. Ryan Hammond:

    When we think about families with children with autism coming to a game, theres barriers to re-entry, theres sensory overload when we score a touchdown and theres pyrotechnics, we felt the sensory room was what we needed to be fully accessible and the idea behind it was not to change the experience but deliver a solution if they needed to take a break. If the sensory bag wasnt enough, you dont have to leave the stadium. You can take a break, de-escalate, calm down and rejoin the experience when you felt ready.

  5. Tiffany Owens:

    Much like slow food, I've long been a proponent of slow travel, spending six months to a few years in each new destination with different jobs, instead of racing around the globe to fill passports and Instagram feeds in a sensory overload, slower travel provides an opportunity to more fully immerse oneself in and explore each new place.
