Examples of assuming in a Sentence

  1. Jefferies Bache analysts:

    We still expect fresh WTI lows and an ultimate decline towards the $40 area, assuming our $40 WTI target is achieved, a nearby Brent price in the $48 area would be implied.

  2. Suzanne Steinbaum:

    A lot of women kind of blow this off assuming it's nothing and that they will feel better, but in reality it could be a sign of your heart.

  3. Philipp Heck:

    Some of these cosmic rays interact with the matter and form new elements, and the longer they get exposed, the more those elements form. I compare this with putting out a bucket in a rainstorm. Assuming the rainfall is constant, the amount of water that accumulates in the bucket tells you how long it was exposed.

  4. 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.

  5. Alexander Vindman:

    Vindman was an important witness for Democrats during the House impeachment inquiry. Vindman raised concerns over Trumps July 25 phone call with Zelensky. During Vindmans testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, he drew applauseafter expressing his love for America, when asked how he overcame his fear of being retaliated against. Congressman, because this isAmerica.This is the country I have servedand defended, that all of mybrothers have served.And here, right matters, i knew I was assuming a lotof risks.[My father] deeply worried about [my testimony]. Because inhis context, it was theultimate risk.
