How to use tweak in a sentence?

  1. Vishnu Varathan:

    Global demand continues to be weak and for a country like Singapore that is open, it shows very, very quickly and rapidly, they certainly have room to tweak the policy but the question is one of prudence - would they indeed be prudent to do so? After Brexit we think there is a small possibility.

  5. Eric Wish:

    While the press and the media talk about Spice and K2 like it’s a single type of phenomenon, the truth can’t be further from that, basically what you have is some chemist in another country, oftentimes the DEA says it’s China, who waits and they see what has been put on the prohibited list by the government. And then they go ahead and they tweak the molecule a little so it’s no longer on the prohibited list and then they make it available.
