Examples of fewer in a Sentence

  1. Barack Obama:

    Today, fewer than 10,000 troops remain on a mission to train and assist Afghan forces. We’ll continue to bring them home and reduce our forces further, down to an embassy presence by the end of next year, but Afghanistan remains a very dangerous place. And as so many families know, our troops continue to risk their lives for us.

  2. David Ferry:

    Even though significantly fewer people are driving, the people that are out there are putting vulnerable road users at higher risk.

  3. Ann Aerts:

    It's very worrying that this is still the case, that's what is driving us to diagnose people earlier, to make sure we see fewer and fewer children with the disease, which would mean ... the disease is being transmitted less and less.

  4. Frank Reich:

    ... but it will be very gradual and deliberate. And of course were taking steps to make sure were in compliance with state and local regulations, and NFL and CDC guidelines. That means primarily employees that must be in the office to do their jobs : people who need to access files that are only at the office ; maintenance workers ; trainers ; and technology workers. Those people will have their temperature taken when entering the building and must wear personal protective equipment. The Colts have set up one-way hallways with arrows on the carpet pointing to the proper direction, and there will be limits on how many people can be in rooms at the same time. Coach Frank Reich was realistic about a full return to the training complex. The guys who have been hurt, who have been coming into the building, keep coming in and rehabbing and doing their thing, other than that, as soon as we can get more players in the building we want that to make up for a little bit of lost time. The sooner we can get together and get out there working, the better it will be. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took part in an owners conference call from the teams practice facility, The Star. About two dozen staffers were present at the complex. The Steelers are doing a soft reopening Tuesday mainly for medical personnel and rehabbing players. They expect to ramp up use of their facility next week under league guidelines. As the Cardinals reopen, only essential staffers will be involved, far fewer than the 75 allowed at the facility. The Super Bowl champion Chiefs also opted for a soft opening, as did the Falcons, with only about 15 people at their complex on Tuesday. Those numbers will increase over the next week.

  5. Juvencio Maeztu:

    In New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Madrid, Barcelona, Tokyo, Shanghai, Mumbai, we will see more of these mid-sized stores in the future, in the next 20 years, more people will live in cities and own fewer cars and share more.
