Examples of Hancock in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    It's just a folklore that lightning would never strike the same place twice. Last year, on June 30, 2014, three skyscrapers from Chicago were struck by lightning 22 times - 10 strikes to the Sears (Willis) Tower, 8 to the Trump Tower, and 4 to the John Hancock Tower. So be assured that lightning can surely strike any location more than once, and probably at the same spot over and over again, given enough time. It may take as little as few seconds in a thunderstorm, or as long as millions of years - but lightning will eventually strike the same place twice. Be Safe out there!

  2. Craig Motlong:

    My grandmother worked at the John Hancock Insurance Company, and was asked to leave when she got married. This was during the Depression. My mom graduated from college and had two career options, really – teacher or psychotherapist.

  3. Businessman David Humphreys:

    The meaning I took from Mr. Hancock's statement and tone of his comments was clear: He (Tom Schweich) is Jewish — in case you didn't know — and that being Jewish is a negative attribute for Tom Schweich's gubernatorial race.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    It's only a myth that "Lightning never strikes the same place twice". Very recently , on June 30, 2014, three high-rising skyscrapers from Chicago were struck by Lightning 22 times - 10 strikes to the Sears (a.k.a. Willis) Tower, 8 to the Trump Tower, and 4 to the John Hancock Center. Scientifically speaking, there is a good probability that Lightning can strike any location more than once, given enough time, and at the same spot over and over again. It may take as little a few seconds in a single thunderstorm, or as long as millions of years - but Lightning will eventually strike twice, at least. And it's the truth that is stranger than the fiction.

  5. Johnny Thornton:

    John McCown created a political strategy, and African Americans voted themselves into power, it has come to a point where( Hancock County) is one of the most impoverished in America. There is a wives' tale -- I don't know if it's true or not -- that some political leaders in Georgia have always said that if we can't vote the people of Hancock County out, we'll starve them out -- and there's been a disproportionate lack of growth to this particular community.
