English Synonyms and Antonyms
Air is that combination of qualities which makes the entire impression we receive in a person's presence; as, we say he has the air of a scholar, or the air of a villain. Appearance refers more to the dress and other externals. We might say of a travel-soiled pedestrian, he has the appearance of a tramp, but the air of a gentleman. Expression and look especially refer to the face. Expression is oftenest applied to that which is habitual; as, he has a pleasant expression of countenance; look may be momentary; as, a look of dismay passed over his face. We may, however, speak of the look or looks as indicating all that we look at; as, he had the look of an adventurer; I did not like his looks. Bearing is rather a lofty word; as, he has a noble bearing; port is practically identical in meaning with bearing, but is more exclusively a literary word. Carriage, too, is generally used in a good sense; as, that lady has a good carriage. Mien is closely synonymous with air, but less often used in a bad sense. We say a rakish air rather than a rakish mien. Mien may be used to express some prevailing feeling; as, "an indignant mien." Demeanor goes beyond appearance, including conduct, behavior; as, a modest demeanor. Manner and style are, in large part at least, acquired. Compare BEHAVIOR.

At some point they just can't ignore the fact that there are a lot of public documents on the server that the American people have a right to see, and we believe it's time for Mrs. Clinton to turn that server and all those documents over to the inspector general at the State Department. Let them sort out what's official, what's private. I have no interest in what her private emails were.
Bans often inspire a knee-jerk reaction from the people they affect the most, i don't know if the proposed ban on flavored vaping fluid evokes this sort of response. I suspect it does for at least a small number of people. Vaping is not protected in the Bill of Rights, certainly not in the same way that guns are.
Forgive! How many will say, forgive, and find a sort of absolution in the sound to hate a little longer!
I dislike the additional level of anxiety that's sort of randomly interjected into my life.
You'll hear a jet sort of sound start up in the forest, followed by a really black smoke, then you'll see basically a fireball race across the trees.
