How to use take over in a sentence?

  1. Michael Bublé:

    I don't allow my tour to take over my life. I go for two or three weeks at a time and then I take off two or three weeks, financially, it's not the most responsible way to do it but the truth is my family has always been what's more important to me.

  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. Donald Trump:

    It's a terrible thing when judges take over your protective services, when they tell you how to protect your border. It's a disgrace.

  4. Sanjiv Banzal:

    India's new emergency hotline,112, initially plans to integrate India's emergency call numbers for police (100), fire (102), ambulance (103) and Emergency Disaster Management (108) eventually, the number will take over all the emergency numbers, becoming the one-stop emergency response system.

  5. Chung Mong-koo:

    When you look at this year's management reshuffle at Korean firms, you have to focus on executive vice presidents, not CEOs, because they are the ones who will support scions when they take over.
