  1. Blueprint

    A blueprint is a reproduction of a technical drawing, documenting an architecture or an engineering design, using a contact print process on light-sensitive sheets. Invented in the 19th century, the process allowed rapid and accurate reproduction of documents used in construction and industry. The blue-print process was characterized by light colored lines on a blue background, a negative of the original. The process was unable to reproduce color or shades of grey. Various base materials have been used for blueprints. Paper was a common choice; for more durable prints linen was sometimes used, but with time, the linen prints would shrink slightly. To combat this problem, printing on imitation vellum and, later, polyester film was implemented. The process has been largely displaced by the diazo whiteprint process and by large-format xerographic photocopiers, so reproduced drawings are usually called "prints" or just "drawings".

Examples of blueprint in a Sentence

  1. Jill Castle:

    If a mom says,' She's OK, but this one I really have to watch,' psychologically, that can really send the message that that child is not good enough, loving with limits is a way of feeding children that can really level the playing field for all children and all personalities. The goal is to set the blueprint for raising all kids in the same way : prioritized, not stigmatized. It applies to the whole family.

  2. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer:

    Which isn't a lot. But this primary is just getting started.Both of these things can't be trueTrump's main pitch for reelection is the economy and, while it hasn't lived up to his 2016 campaign promises, he put forward an extremely rosy outlook in his annual budget proposal, released Monday.Just as an example, read from CNN's story about the predicted deficits in Trump's budget compared to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.Both of these things cannot be true:CBO says budget will grow -- The deficit -- the gap between how much the government spends versus how much it takes in -- surpassed $1 trillion for the calendar year in 2019, marking the first time since 2012.That number is only expected to widen even further over the coming decade, reaching a total of $1.7 trillion in 2030, according to the latest projections by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released in late January.White House says budget will shrink -- That's a sharp contrast to the White House's latest blueprint, which projects that the deficit will shrink to $261 billion by 2030. The President's budget assumes that the economy will grow at around 3% annually during that period of time helping to narrow the gap. Those estimates are significantly higher than what most economists anticipated along with the Federal Reserve.Bonus: Read CNN reporter Donna Borak's piece on the White House plan for more tax cuts despite the deficits.Impeachment falloutGiuliani has a channel to Barr -- Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Rudy Giuliani is giving information regarding his Ukraine conspiracy theories to Attorney General William Barr through some sort of special channel Barr has set up. This is not surprising since Trump clearly lumps his lawyer and the attorney general together. He asked Ukraine's President to be in touch with both of them. But a back channel to the DOJ? This is, um, not how things are supposed to work, writes Elie Honig.Trump weaponizes the presidency -- Read this from Stephen Collinson: (Trump) is completing his project of fashioning the office around his own personality. It's unrestrained, unaccountable, often profane, impervious to outside influence and factual constraints of normal governance. The President has established dominance over his party, his Cabinet and his own media complex. He loosened Congress's constraints by refusing to cooperate with the impeachment probe. The result is that there are very few political constraints on his behavior left.

  3. Tim Dixon:

    And maybe that's the blueprint for a future candidate, it's to speak to the values that the country shares and to say we're more than just a demographic category. We're more than just a political partisan.

  4. Sherrod Brown:

    We celebrate the worker, and that is the blueprint for America in 2020.

  5. Harrison Ford:

    Before JJ and I talked, I had read the script and I saw what the blueprint for the whole enterprise was, i thought the opportunities for the characters were interesting. I love how it was knitted into the story overall.
