How to use stream in a sentence?

  1. State Department official Philip Reeker:

    I do recall him telling me... that, well, he was going to reach out to or was going to speak to Rudy Giuliani, and I think Ambassador Volker felt that there was this very good story to tell about President Volodymyr Zelensky and a new chapter in Ukraine. And that was Ambassador Volker goal, was to hopefully take away some of that, what we sense was a negative stream coming from Mr. Giuliani to the President.

  2. Frederic Neumann:

    China's demand stumble comes at an awkward time, just when more and more supply of raw materials is coming on stream in many sectors. No quick fix in sight, china's stock market stumble now risks knocking demand down further. What all this points to is the need for a lot more easing, including extra fiscal spending. China's economy is highly dependent on construction. With that engine sputtering, mainland commodity demand will struggle to make headway for a while.

  3. Chad Pregracke:

    Wherever you are, no matter if there's a stream, a creek, a lake, whatever, that needs to be cleaned up, you can do it. Just organize it and do it.

  4. Ron Johnson:

    Together with deciding not to impose sanctions to halt the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, his limited demand on cyberattacks signals weakness that our adversaries will notice and take advantage of, president Biden's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed our worst fear: he is too weak to stand up to adversaries.

  5. Zack Labe:

    In other words, while the globe may be warmer than average as a whole, some areas will still observe colder temperatures and even severe cold outbreaks, this regional variation is due to the influences of the oceans, mountains, deserts, ice sheets, and other geographic features that all affect our weather and climate. It's also from changes in weather patterns that are related to the position of the jet stream( storm track), which can vary from day-to-day or even month-to-month.
