How to use volley in a sentence?

  1. Paul Walker:

    Volley is tackling and solving one of the most difficult and important problems in machine learning: extracting knowledge from unstructured information.

  2. Florida State Attorney Jeffrey Ashton:

    ( Todashev) went down, but Ibragim Todashev was not incapacitated. Ibragim Todashev came up again in an aggressive manner, and the officer then fired the second volley of three or four shots. Which at that point essentially incapacitated Ibragim Todashev, it would seem almost superhuman, but everything that we have learned in the investigation would show an individual who has a great deal of tolerance of pain and would more or less fight beyond it.

  3. Dan Gainor:

    This is just the latest volley in Hollywood's war against faith, rather than simply deny the divine, ‘Angel From Hell’ seeks to denigrate it. They picked 'Glee' veteran Jane Lynch, who hates conservatives, to portray a disgustingly foul and perverted ‘angel.’.

  4. Ryan Pack:

    There's a big difference between having fun, breaking laws, being destructive and being harmful to others. You can have as much fun as you want as long as your always responsible. It's o.k. to go out to dinners and movies, it's o.k. to go to the beach with your friends and play volley ball and jet ski, it's o.k. to have BBQs and go camping, it's o.k. to play sports and get an education, it's o.k. to go to concerts and sporting events, it's o.k. to take vacations but it's not o.k. to drink alcohol, to do drugs, and to use tobacco. It's not o.k. to be malicious, murder, rape, cheat, lie, rob and be irresponsible. Its never o.k. to abuse people and things. It's never o.k. to be a fucking scumbag.

  5. Gilles Muller:

    If I were coaching a young player I would teach them to serve and volley, 95 percent of the top 100 are not doing it so that means they never practise to prepare for a serve and volleyer coming at them. If you mix it up and throw in some serve and volley it makes the returner take more risks.
