Freebase

  1. Corps

    A corps is either a large military formation composed of two or more divisions, or an administrative grouping of troops within an armed force with a common function such as Artillery or Signals representing an arm of service. Corps may also refer to a particular unit or a particular branch of service, such as the United States Marine Corps, the Corps of Royal Marines, the Honourable Corps of Gentlemen at Arms, or the Corps of Commissionaires. The military term was subsequently adopted for public service organizations with a paramilitary command structure, volunteer public service organizations, such as the Peace Corps, various ambulance corps, some NGOs, and other civic volunteer organizations. Due to this use of the term, it has also spread to some other civic or volunteer organizations that lack the paramilitary structure.

Examples of corps in a Sentence

  1. Emeasoba George:

    L'immortalité est définie comme la continuation indéfinie de l'existence d'une personne même après la mort. En d'autres termes, c'est une existence sans fin, indépendamment du fait que le corps meurt ou non. Je veux dire, c'est l'état de pouvoir vivre perpétuellement. C'est-à-dire, un être immortel est quelqu'un qui a atteint l'immortalité (renommée durable). Et par conséquent, il ou elle ne sera jamais oublié. Parce que, il ou elle mérite d'être rappelé et célébré globalement ou perpétuellement. Maintenant écoutez, beaucoup de mortels comme vous ont déjà atteint l'immortalité par leurs passions, générosités, magnanimités, sagacités, professions, carrières et grâce à leurs ressources, dons, talents, inventions, découvertes, créativités, originalités, ingéniosités, livres publiés, citations, pensées, idées, motivations, inspirations et autres publications. Par exemple, tous les auteurs ou auteurs ici ou là-bas ont déjà atteint l'immortalité via leurs livres publiés, citations, idées, idées, motivations, inspirations et via d'autres œuvres ou publications écrites. En fait, c'est pourquoi ils (les auteurs ou les écrivains) seront certainement rappelés et célébrés globalement ou perpétuellement à travers la postérité à venir (toutes les générations futures). Oui! parce que les auteurs ou auteurs ont publié des livres, citations, idées, idées, motivations, inspirations et autres écrits écrits seront sûrement lus, partagés, assimilés, adoptés, utilisés, célébrés ou critiqués mondialement et perpétuellement par la postérité (toutes les générations futures) devant). Quoi qu'il en soit, cela suggère et infère, si vous (vraiment) vraiment envie de vous rappeler ou célébrer globalement et perpétuellement après votre décès, alors vous devriez vous efforcer d'atteindre l'immortalité maintenant que vous êtes encore vivant soit par passion, profession, carrière, générosité ou grâce à votre sagacité, à vos connaissances, à vos dons, à vos talents, à vos ressources, à vos pensées, à vos idées, à vos idées ou à d'autres choses comme cela. Mieux encore, tâchez d'écrire et de publier quelque chose qui vaut la peine d'être lu ou d'essayer de réussir à faire des choses qui valent la peine d'être écrites. Tout ce que je dis c'est que vous aussi pouvez faire une différence et vous pouvez également réussir à laisser un héritage positif pour la postérité à venir. Croyez-moi, vous pouvez le faire. Note: Je (personnellement) crois en toi. Alors allez, osez croire en vous-même. -Emeasoba George

The reality of this situation is the Pebble project has not met that bar and a permit can not be issued to it.

  4. Maryam Rajavi:

    From the outset we have rejected this reactionary and bellicose policy and seek amicable relations with the rest of our neighbors to confront this regime, the Islamic revolutionary Guard Corps must be designated as a foreign terrorist group and evicted from the region. More sanctions need to be imposed on the regime. the Iranian people long for freedom and democracy, equality, and an advanced society. Moreover the Iranian people demand an overthrow of this regime, she said. Rajavi has called on international organizations to expel Iran because of its support of terrorism, restore sanctions on some officials and start war crimes prosecutions for those that she says are responsible for massacring civilians. Iran, however considers the N.C.R.I a terrorist organization, a claim the group rejects. The N.C.R.I says the regime has executed more than 120,000 of its followers who oppose the regime. Mrs. Rajavi alluded to America’s July 4th Independence Day, and the rights secured in the Declaration of Independence.
