How to use trigger in a sentence?

  1. China Vanke:

    Small shareholders, media and the public have expressed major concerns over whether Jushenhua (Baoneng's unit) will be able to sustain its high-leveraged funding source, whether it will trigger a plunge in Vanke's A share, and whether it will create a systematic risk in the secondary stock market like we saw in the 2015 market rout.

  2. Greg Anderson:

    This is going to get worse before it gets better, incidents like this trigger paybacks, which could easily spiral out of control.

  3. Simon Hanson:

    Drummers can have the effect of two bass drums by having a pedal which is double where you only have one and the mechanism will play as if it's a double bass drum. It's similar to that in a way, i think because the drummer's not directly controlling it from his brain - although it looks like might be able to do that in the future, which has its own complications - it would for me be an add-on to a kit so I could trigger a sample or a different instrument. The basic drum kit is great. Two hands are okay and when I'm producing and there's other drummers playing I get them to play with one hand because I think drums with one hand sounds better in many ways.

  4. Jim Judge:

    From a planning perspective, it helps us to plan better, look at the potential impact and also pull the trigger on evacuations and provide a messaging to the public on what protective actions they need to take.

  5. Dendy Engelman:

    The minimally invasive microneedling technique involves a series of tiny, very fine needles that are passed over the skin, creating micro-injuries which trigger new collagen and elastin synthesis as the skin begins to naturally repair itself.
