How to use probe in a sentence?

  1. Yasuhito Sekine:

    It will take more than 20 years to send a space probe to Enceladus and bring samples back to earth. So, we're taking a long breath until we finally get the sample in our hands - maybe more than 30 years - but hopefully by the end of this century, we will reach the conclusion.

  2. Sister Abhaya:

    We were poor people, we didn't have much money, but my father would travel for hours a day by bus to probe the police to reopen the case and give us the truth.

  3. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer:

    Which isn't a lot. But this primary is just getting started.Both of these things can't be trueTrump's main pitch for reelection is the economy and, while it hasn't lived up to his 2016 campaign promises, he put forward an extremely rosy outlook in his annual budget proposal, released Monday.Just as an example, read from CNN's story about the predicted deficits in Trump's budget compared to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.Both of these things cannot be true:CBO says budget will grow -- The deficit -- the gap between how much the government spends versus how much it takes in -- surpassed $1 trillion for the calendar year in 2019, marking the first time since 2012.That number is only expected to widen even further over the coming decade, reaching a total of $1.7 trillion in 2030, according to the latest projections by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released in late January.White House says budget will shrink -- That's a sharp contrast to the White House's latest blueprint, which projects that the deficit will shrink to $261 billion by 2030. The President's budget assumes that the economy will grow at around 3% annually during that period of time helping to narrow the gap. Those estimates are significantly higher than what most economists anticipated along with the Federal Reserve.Bonus: Read CNN reporter Donna Borak's piece on the White House plan for more tax cuts despite the deficits.Impeachment falloutGiuliani has a channel to Barr -- Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Rudy Giuliani is giving information regarding his Ukraine conspiracy theories to Attorney General William Barr through some sort of special channel Barr has set up. This is not surprising since Trump clearly lumps his lawyer and the attorney general together. He asked Ukraine's President to be in touch with both of them. But a back channel to the DOJ? This is, um, not how things are supposed to work, writes Elie Honig.Trump weaponizes the presidency -- Read this from Stephen Collinson: (Trump) is completing his project of fashioning the office around his own personality. It's unrestrained, unaccountable, often profane, impervious to outside influence and factual constraints of normal governance. The President has established dominance over his party, his Cabinet and his own media complex. He loosened Congress's constraints by refusing to cooperate with the impeachment probe. The result is that there are very few political constraints on his behavior left.

  4. Francis Cardinal George, OMI:

    The devil is the source of temptation, but succumbing to temptation is our own doing. Only if we come face to face with our own sinfulness, do we begin to be grateful for the power of God’s forgiveness. Only if we recognize the connection between sin and death, do we begin to probe the meaning of Christ’s death and resurrection. Only if we experience the evil we have done, do we begin to understand how God has brought redemption out of loss, love out of hatred.

  5. New Jersey:

    Aside from an ongoing Ethics Committee probe, the legal cloud over Menendez appears to be lifting. But he still faces political headwinds in his bid this year for a third Senate term and in his purported attempt to retain the committee post. Menendez’s net approval rating among registered voters has fallen 20 points since the start of 2017 -- the biggest decline of any senator up for 2018 reelection, according to a recent Morning Consult poll based on a survey from October through December 2017. New Jersey voters will continue to be reminded of Menendez's dishonest schemes as the election approaches in November, Republican National Committee spokesman Bob Salera recently said. If Menendez indeed reclaims his top post on the foreign relations committee, he would push aside Maryland New Jersey Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin, who now occupies the ranking-member post. The liberal wing of New Jersey Democratic also has expressed concern about Menendez’s return, considering he’s regarded as more moderate than Ben Cardin. Menendez, the son of Cuban immigrants, did not support former President Barack Obama’s efforts to improve diplomatic relations with the Cuban government or the Iran nuclear deal, brokered by the Obama administration. Federal prosecutors decided two weeks ago not to retry Menendez on corruption charges, after their case ended last fall in a hung jury. Menendez, 64, was charged with trading his political influence for gifts and campaign contributions from Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen. He denied the allegations all along. The prosecutors ’ decision ended Menendez and Melgen’s 11-week trial and their roughly five-year investigation. From the very beginning, I never wavered in my innocence and my belief that justice would prevail, Menendez said after prosecutors dropped the case. I am grateful that the Department of Justice has taken the time to re-evaluate its case and come to the appropriate conclusion. However, The New Jersey Democratic senator also issued a warning last year to those who were eager to replace The New Jersey Democratic senator in the Senate. To those who were digging my political grave so they could jump into my seat, I know who you are and I wo n’t forget you.
