How to use starting in a sentence?

  1. Chief Executive Travis Kalanick:

    The key for (us in) China is to move fast, if we launch in the U.S. and then it gets copied in China, we'll be behind. So we're starting to orient some of our innovation at China first.

  2. Kristie Mewis:

    And I was so proud of these players, the way they stepped up and handled the game, considering that some of them didnt have a chance to train properly before this camp. Lavelle also scored when the United States beat the Netherlands in Lyon, France, last year for the teams second straight World Cup title. Nine of the 11 U.S. starters for the final were in the starting lineup on Friday. Notably missing was Alex Morgan, who came in as a second-half substitute for her 170th appearance with the team. Morgan, currently playing for Tottenham, had not played for the United States since the World Cup final because she was pregnant with and gave birth to daughter Charlie. Netherlands coach Sarina Wiegman was not with the team because of a personal matter that was not related to COVID-19. Wiegman, a former Dutch midfielder who has coached the team since 2017, will take over as Englands national team coach next September, succeeding Phil Neville. Lavelle struck a left-footed goal on a break in the 41st minute. Kristie Mewis subbed in to join her younger sister on the field and scored nine minutes later. Sam Mewis was among the first to embrace her sister in celebration. I was I was so nervous to shoot it, but I just wound up and gave it the best I could. And then turning around and just realizing what had just happened and seeing Sam and Alex running towards me was so special. Its a very surreal moment for me.

  3. Daryl Fairweather:
