How to use shake up in a sentence?

  1. Michel Foucault:

    The work of an intellectual is not to mould the political will of others; it is, through the analyses that he does in his own field, to re-examine evidence and assumptions, to shake up habitual ways of working and thinking, to dissipate conventional familiarities, to re-evaluate rules and institutions and to participate in the formation of a political will (where he has his role as citizen to play).

  2. Lee Weiss:

    An ongoing trend we've seen throughout the past few admissions cycles is the shift towards a two-test landscape, and what's interesting is that even as some of the changes to the SAT make it more ACT-like, more students are taking both tests or considering the ACT option, students have been recognizing that they have more than one test option, and the shake-up caused by the SAT redesign has furthered this recognition.

  3. Kevan Yenerall:

    Most Democrats in the district may not dislike Pelosi, per se, but would like to shake up the status quo.

  4. Riccardo Designori:

    There's quite a lot of money on balance sheets in Europe. If companies are reluctant to put it to work, they risk seeing activists twisting their arm to launch buyback plans, there's also a huge potential for restructuring and mergers, and activist funds are starting to shake up things and accelerate the process.

  5. Mileah Kromer:

    His absence will shake up the race because he was an important political figure in the state, he had a serious record for any candidate to run on. That, of course, is a loss. That is a loss to the Democratic Party and a loss to the voters of Maryland.
