How to use spotlight in a sentence?

  1. Florence Pugh:

    I know that part of being in the spotlight is that people might invade your privacy and have opinions on it, but it's bizarre that normal folk are allowed to display such hate and opinions on a part of my life that I'm not putting out there, it's a strange side of fame that you're allowed to be torn apart by thousands of people even though you didn't put that piece of you out there.

  2. Kevin Galer:

    The FBI is conducting deeper analyses of toxicological results, the statement said, warning that conclusions may take up to a month and urging patience during this process. PENNSYLVANIA WOMAN DIED AT SAME DOMINICAN RESORT COMPLEX FIVE DAYS BEFORE MARYLAND COUPLE IN SIMILAR CIRCUMSTANCES The bureau is conducting its analysis of toxicology results for three of the six U.S. tourists in the agencys Quantico Virginia labs, according to CBS News. The three casesappear to be the most recent deaths, which occurred within five days in May at Bahia Principe resorts that are nearly adjacent to each other in La Romana.Miranda Schaup-Werner of Allentown, Penn. collapsed and died on May 25 after having a drink from herrooms mini bar. Five days later, on May 30, a Maryland couple, Edward Holmes and Cynthia Day, were found dead in their room. Experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization were also assisting in trying to find what caused the deaths of the tourists. Dominican officials said that the agencies were conducting health and epidemiological inspections of resorts, though it was not clear which ones. CALIFORNIA MAN DIED IN APRIL AT DOMINICAN REPUBLIC RESORT AFTER DRINK FROM HOTEL ROOM MINIBAR, FAMILY SAYS Dominican authorities and resort officials have sought to downplay the significance of the deaths, suggesting that the tourists had died of natural causes. But preliminary results they reported that pointed at similar conditions, such as pulmonary edema -- where the lungs fill with fluid -- and heart attacks in some cases, prompted relatives to raise doubts and a lack of trust that they were being told the truth. Meanwhile, following news that at least two U.S. tourists who stayed at their resort suddenly fell critically ill in their rooms and died in the last 12 months, the Hard Rock Hotel Casino Punta Cana issued a public statement acknowledging the two tragedies and seeking to reassure the public that it is tightening oversight. The spotlight on deaths of tourists broadened from the Bahia Principe resort group to the Hard Rock hotel after news that Robert Wallace of California died there in April after abruptly falling ill, and that last year David Harrison of Maryland also died suddenly. In a statement to Fox News, hotel officials said they are deeply saddened by these two unfortunate incidents, and weextend our sincerest sympathy tothe families of Mr. Harrison and Mr. Wallace.We are currently waiting for official reports regarding these deaths. MARYLAND COUPLE FOUND DEAD IN DOMINICAN REPUBLIC HOTEL ROOM Fox News asked Hard Rock representatives on Sunday to comment on the two deaths, and to identify the companies they use to stock their minibars. Their statement did not answer the second question. We can assure you, the safety andhealth of our guestsis now, andhas always been our highest priority, the Hard Rock statement said. We currentlyimplementbeverage protocols, including purchasing sealed and unopenedproducts from licensed and reputable vendors, as well as dailyinspections ofall products served throughout the hotel bars and in-room liquor dispensers. Additionally, our team members are trained toinspect all supplies, equipmentand products that enter the property, it said. Of course, we will continue toevaluate and recalibrate our protocolsto strengthen and enhance guest safety. Hotel officials have not responded to a follow-up question by Fox News about when they implemented the protocol they described as their current one. Fox News has received scores of emails from people who say they fell critically ill after having a drink at the hotel or from the minibar in their room. Several had stayed at Hard Rock resort. Asked to comment on the Hard Rocks statement, they expressed skepticism. NY WOMAN CLAIMS SHE DRANK SODA BOTTLE FILLED WITH BLEACH AT SAME DOMINICAN RESORT WHERE 3 AMERICANS DIED On every occasion when I ordered drinks from the pool bar, the hotel lobby or casino bar the brand of liquor that I ordered was not served, several times I ordered Titos and soda for my wife and watched them pour the drink from a Titos bottle knowing 100 percent it was not Titos in that bottle.The same thing happened when I ordered a Johnnie Walker Black Label neat that was on display on the back bar shelf.The bartender grabbed the bottle, poured me the drink and what I received was a very low end, watered down tasting whiskey that was definitely not Johnnie Walker.
