Examples of according in a Sentence

  1. Paul Darr:

    There’s a big push to get veterans into housing by the end of the year, here I am, four months later. As the five-year target runs out, and the cold of winter edges closer, thousands of our nation's finest remainwithout a home. While homelessness among America's finest has improved nationwide, it is still rising in 17 states, andthere's been a 13 percent increase in Washington, D.C., where 1 in every 50 veterans remains homeless, according to the National Alliance to End Homelessness. As many as 840,000 men and women who have served in the uniform of the United States went to sleepwithout a home on at least one night in 2014, according to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans andon any given night. Many combat veterans find themselves homeless through the evil of drug addiction -- ofevery 10 veterans returning from overseas conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, one of them suffers fromsubstance abuse, according to the Veterans Affairs Administration. And one in every three of those veterans is also suffering from Post-Tramatic Stress Disorder( PTSD). Manyfall through the cracks, get lost in the bureaucratic flurry of papers, and disappear onto the streets. Yet the United States has begun to take in 10,000 Syrian refugees -- at an estimated resettling cost of $ 15,700 each, according the State Department, despite the plight of thousands of veterans still left out in thecold. In several interviews conducted by LifeZette around DC, many of these veterans are looking out forthemselves, and are n’t waiting on elusive aid from the federal government or the president. I ’d really love the opportunity to get a job, Darr said, his voice choking a bit as he looked away, becauseLord knows, it’s humiliating.

  5. Frederick Bastiat:

    It must be admitted that the tendency of the human race toward liberty is largely thwarted, especially in France. This is greatly due to a fatal desire -- learned from the teachings of antiquity -- that our writers on public affairs have in common: They desire to set themselves above mankind in order to arrange, organize, and regulate it according to their fancy.
