Examples of controlled in a Sentence

  1. Jerald Podair:

    In a feudal society -- and the South was in many ways just that well into the 20th century -- labor is controlled, it cannot be free or the entire social structure will collapse. There are still residues of this even in the South today.

  2. Lawrence Smart:

    Many of these things have not been properly studied in these controlled experiments and may or may not live up to the hype.

  3. William Howard Taft:

    Now, I am opposed to the franchise in the District [of Columbia]; I am opposed, and not because I yield to any one in my support and belief in the principles of self-government; but principles are applicable generally, and then, unless you make exceptions to the application of these principles, you will find that they will carry you to very illogical and absurd results. This was taken out of the application of the principle of self-government in the very Constitution that was intended to put that in force in every other part of the country, and it was done because it was intended to have the representatives of all the people in the country control this one city, and to prevent its being controlled by the parochial spirit that would necessarily govern men who did not look beyond the city to the grandeur of the nation, and this as the representative of that nation.

  4. Mike Pompeo:

    The time is now for the cessation of hostilities, including missile and UAV strikes from Houthi-controlled areas into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Subsequently, Coalition air strikes must cease in all populated areas in Yemen, we've got to move toward a peace effort here, and you can't say we're going to do it sometime in the future. We need to be doing this in the next 30 days. We've admired this problem for long enough down there, and I believe that Saudi Arabia and the Emirates are ready, and in fact had the Houthis not walked out of the last effort that Martin Griffiths had going, we'd probably be on our way there right now.

  5. Donald Trump:

    Last week in Iowa and in New Hampshire I had a standing ovation just when I said, 'By the way, I'm self-funding my campaign.' I had a standing ovation. People love the fact that I'm putting my own money in, that means that unlike Bush, who is totally controlled by these people, and unlike Hillary (Clinton) and honestly Marco (Rubio) and everybody.
