How to use world in a sentence?

  1. Executive James Sutherland:

    Our thanks go to Channel Nine, who for more than 40 years has broadcast international cricket at a world-renowned standard – and in so doing has done more to promote our sport than any organisation in Australian cricket history.

  2. Tom Enders:

    Please don't listen to the Brexiteers' madness which asserts that, because we have huge plants here, we will not move and we will always be here. They are wrong, of course, it is not possible to pick up and move our large UK factories to other parts of the world immediately. However, aerospace is a long-term business and we could be forced to re-direct future investments in the event of a no-deal Brexit. And make no mistake there are plenty of countries out there who would love to build the wings for Airbus aircraft.

  3. Dave Hackett:

    With Venezuela in chaos, the world is going to welcome additional heavy Canadian barrels.

  4. Ranndeep Chonker:

    The point is India does not have public disclosure as law, unlike in the United States and many parts of the western world, a lot of information about such breaches gets swept under the carpet.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    If someone has stolen your idea or taken undue credit for your work, don't let it upset you. Learn from that experience and move on as swiftly as you can. Life is too short to dwell in the past, and fall in the trap of self-pity and misery. In my experience, those who steal the credit and ideas of others shamelessly, often don't realize that they are actually increasing their bad "Karma" by their wrongdoings, and that bad Karma quickly catches up with them in no time. Be assured! Time takes care in sweet and mysterious ways - always! Never forget that nobody will ever be able to steal or take away your creativity, ingenuity, and inventive mind, even though they may have stolen your one idea at one time only. Your divine spark of intelligence will continue to illuminate the world, even after losing that one idea - because surely there's plenty more where that came from!
