How to use shuffle in a sentence?

  1. Professor Darren Griffin:

    We think it generates variation. Having a lot of chromosomes enables dinosaurs to shuffle their genes around much more than other types of animals. This shuffling means that dinosaurs can evolve more quickly and so help them survive so long as the planet changed.

  2. Vyacheslav Volodin:

    There was no probe yet, and it is unlikely to be impartial considering the current situation in Ukraine, that's why all statements made instantly are an attempt, on the one hand, to shuffle off the blame on to someone else. On the other hand, everything suggests that all that may have been orchestrated.

  3. Scott Snyder:

  4. Donovan Mitchell:

    For me, personally, it’s just something that I wanted to accomplish, it’s not the end goal, but it’s definitely something to appreciate along the way.

  5. Lynly Egyes:

    Roxsana Hernandez needed medical care and yet she was cleared to be incarcerated. At numerous times throughout her days in immigration enforcement custody, the people she was detained with pleaded for her to receive medical care, it is clear from these records that if immigration enforcement believes that their sole duty is to shuffle people into immigration prisons, that is what they'll do. As a result, the consequences for those who are either sick or who get sick while in their custody can be fatal.
