  1. CONduit

    CONduit is an annual general interest science fiction and fantasy convention held in May in Salt Lake City, Utah. CONduit was founded in 1989 but took two years to plan its first convention. While there are other genre conventions in Utah, CONduit is the largest general interest convention, and provides a means for professionals to meet and network with other professionals, as well as a way for fans to meet and enjoy each other's company. Each year, CONduit has a charity auction to benefit a local charitable cause. In years past, this auction benefitted Reading for the Future, a non-profit organization which promoted literacy through speculative fiction. The RFF Utah Student Writing and Art Contest was sponsored in part by CONduit. However, RFF ceased operation in January 2010. CONduit is also a founding member of the Utah Speculative Fiction Council. Notable local guests have included Brandon Sanderson, L.E. Modesitt, Jr., Tracy Hickman, Anne Wingate, Dan Willis, Bradley Williams, Eric James Stone, James Dashner, Dave Wolverton, Paul Genesse, Kevin Wasden, and Howard Tayler.

Examples of conduit in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Gestion de la colère est extrêmement important dans la vie, parce que la colère est une épée autodestructeur très trompeuse. La colère détruit totalement la personne qui la possède plutôt que ceux contre lesquels il se dirige. Mythologie grecque nous conduit également à croire que chaque fois que les dieux veulent détruire quelqu'un, ils font toujours lui / elle en colère en premier. Alors s'il vous plaît ne vous une faveur et apprendre à gérer votre colère de sorte qu'il ne serait jamais capable de vous détruire, jamais!

  2. Richard Chang:

    We did what we call a cut-down : We opened up a big artery in the shoulder area and surgically tied in a graft-conduit, that allowed me to put in the 5-liter pump into the shoulder area through a graft, and pull the other one out from the groin. That ultimately I think is like playing chess — you got ta plan for the next move.

  3. Nick Cave:

    I was a conduit for a God that spoke in a language written in bile and puke, and for a while, that suited me fine.

  4. Trey Gowdy:

    He didn’t know if the sources were legitimate, he didn’t know whether or not the information had been corroborated. He was merely a conduit between somebody who may have had a financial interest in Libya and our nation’s top diplomat.

  5. James Comey:

    To my mind it crosses a line when it moves from being about trying to educate a public and instead just becomes about intelligence porn, frankly, just pushing out information about sources and methods without regard to interest, without regard to the First Amendment values that normally underlie press reporting, and simply becomes a conduit for the Russian intelligence services or some other adversary of the United States.
