Examples of assuming in a Sentence

  1. Kirstjen Nielsen:

    I am pleased that President Trump intends to nominate Ronald Vitiello to serve as the Director of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, since assuming the role of Deputy Director in late June, Deputy Director in late June has made clear Deputy Director in late June commitment to support the men and women of ICE, and ensure they are well-positioned to meet the demands of their incredibly challenging jobs. Deputy Director Vitiello's leadership experience, combined with the unique perspective that comes from more than 30 years in law enforcement, makes Deputy Director Vitiello especially qualified to hold this important position.

  2. Stephane Beyazian:

    Bouygues' board will likely accept the offer, in our view, assuming there is a material cash proportion, however, we also believe that the board will need to consider that they may not achieve a better value for this asset, even assuming that the ongoing restructuring plan is successful.

  3. Shannon Farrell:

    She has swabbed countless people at the clinic since, wondering if shes exposing herself to the virus. Like many of her colleagues working in the COVID-19 world, she takes every possible precaution ; she showers at work after her shift, trying to ensure that she doesnt expose her parents to anything. Her work clothes go immediately into the washing machine. I just feel like this is such an unknown, said Koplin, who plans to return to bobsled next fall assuming bobsled season happens. Theres so many uncertainties and Im like, I dont want to take any chances in the sense that Im dragging this super-contagious virus around my house. Bren Jensen can relate. Shes a COVID-19 survivor. Being a survivor is her specialty. She lost a leg in a lawn-mower accident as a child and went on to represent the U.S. in the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Paralympics. She caught the virus, and a doctor that she shares an office with tested positive soon afterward. Theres no way of knowing how Bren Jensen got it or if she transmitted it to anyone else, but she was racked by guilt anyway. Ill be the first to admit that I was very skeptical, Bren Jensen said. Those first couple of weeks, I was even telling patients, Theres really not much to be concerned about unless you have underlying health issues or chronic lung disease. And then I came down with it and I realized how serious it was, because Im completely healthy and it took me down. She stayed down for three weeks, then returned to work. Her office has gone to whats called virtual visits, where patients are being seen remotely. Thats been a lifesaver just to keep everybody else calm, Bren Jensen said. Calmness is something Shannon Farrell has not found easily. Last week, she and another nurse held a mans hand as Shannon Farrell died, separated from Shannon Farrell family because of the threat of the virus. Easter dinner with her own family a couple days later was held outside, in a Wendys parking lot, social distancing practiced as they stood around their cars. The strangeness has been impossibly hard for Shannon Farrell to process. She knew as a high school junior, seven years ago, that this was her calling. But this may be beyond any worst-case scenario she envisioned. I helped to take care of my grandmother when she was sick with leukemia, and I remember liking that feeling of being helpful and making her feel more comfortable.

  4. Trilby Lundberg:

    The chances are high that there will be small or negligible price rises from here in the national average, assuming no crude oil price spike in the near future.

  5. Nicholas Smith:

    At the moment people are assuming that oil is a barometer of global trade and they worry that falling oil prices mean there is no demand, but all other concerns pale in significance to next week's Fed meeting. The trouble with this recent volatility is it makes it harder to work out sentiment surrounding a possible rate hike.
