Examples of calls in a Sentence

  1. Gina Haspel:

    While I won't condemn those that made those hard calls, and I have noted the valuable intelligence collected, the program ultimately did damage to our officers and our standing in the world, with the benefit of hindsight and my experience as a senior Agency leader, the enhanced interrogation program is not one the CIA should have undertaken. The United States must be an example to the rest of the world, and I support that.

  2. Andrew Gainer-Dewar:

    Video calls are a fantastic one-to-one mechanism, and the fact that we're not having it in the office takes us out from under the all-seeing eye of a company like Google.

  3. Eleni Linos:

    As technology becomes more sophisticated and people start to use their phones interactively for an increasing number of daily tasks, it would not be surprising if they also increasingly turned to electronic devices for help with personal, health and safety issues, the phone user needs to retain the power to choose what happens. Every domestic violence and sexual assault situation is different, and the phone won't know if the abuser suddenly re-enters the room, grabs the phone, or starts listening in. It's tempting to say that the phone should automatically dial 911, but that could lead to an increase in the number of accidental calls, limit emergency services' capacity to respond to actual urgent calls, and worst of all might tip off the perpetrator that his or her victim is trying to get help.

  4. Dan Robertson:

    Oakland Firefighters Association's unfortunate this situation had to happen. We like to think in Bay Area we live in a bubble where this sort of thing doesn't exist but clearly Bay Area does. Especially in light of things going on nationally, as Oakland Fire Fighters we'll continue to do our jobs, including putting our lives on the line for everyone who calls us, whoever needs our help regardless of whatever biases Oakland Fire Fighters may have.

  5. Gill Pratt:

    We are trying to make robots and human beings work together, robots are very good at working in dangerous environments, while humans are very good at making judgment calls.
