Dictionary of Nautical Terms

  1. laden

    The state of a ship when charged with materials equal to her capacity. If the goods be heavy, her burden is determined by weight; but if light, she carries as much as she can conveniently stow. A ton in measure is estimated at 2000 lbs. in weight; a vessel of 200 tons ought therefore to carry a weight equal to 400,000 lbs.; but if she cannot float high enough with as great a quantity of it as her hold will contain, then a diminution of it becomes necessary. Vessels carry heavy goods by the ton of 20 cwt., but lighter goods by a ton of cubic feet, which varies according to the custom of the port; in London it is 40, in India from 50 to 52, depending on the goods. Vessels can carry (not safely) twice their tonnage.

Examples of laden in a Sentence

  1. Keith Ellison:

    However, Ellison’s past associations and commentsmay trouble more moderate voters. Ellison’s 2006 run for Keith Ellison seat was plunged into controversy after the conservative PowerLineBlog.com found he had once identified with Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam and in 1998 was referring to himself as Keith X Ellison and Keith Ellison-Muhammed. The Washington Post reported that Keith Ellison had defended Farrakhan against accusations of anti-Semitism in 1989 and in 1990 had called affirmative action a sneaky form of compensation for slavery, calling instead for reparations. When the controversy erupted in 2006, Keith Ellison acknowledged Keith Ellison had worked with the group, but only for 18 months to help organize Farrakhan's 1995 Million Man March. Keith Ellison distanced Keith Ellison from both Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, and said Keith Ellison had n’t scruitinized the group's anti-Semitic positions appropriately. They were and are anti-Semitic, and I should have come to that conclusion earlier than I did, Keith Ellison said. Yet it is n’t the only controversy for Keith Ellison. In 2007, Keith Ellison made a comparison between Bush and 9/11 to Hitler and the 1933 Reichstag fire. 9/11 is the juggernaut in American history and it allows... it's almost like, you know, the Reichstag fire, after the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader of that country [ Hitler ] in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted. He later clarified that he did indeed believe that Usama bin Laden was responsible for the terror attacks. But it was n’t the only controversy for Ellison in 2007, as he also backed a movement to impeach then-Vice President Dick Cheney over his alleged fabrication of intelligence about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. However, Brad Bannon believes that Ellison’s Muslim heritage could be a boost not a burden, especially in light of Trump’s elevation Sunday of controversial Breitbart boss Steve Bannon to chief strategist.

    I was part of a very small group that had to advise the President about whether or not to go after bin Laden, i spent a lot of time in the Situation Room as secretary of state, and there were many very difficult choices presented to us.

  3. Muqadas Haider:

    He had stayed in touch with Osama bin Laden and Ayman al- Zawahri and has worked with Harkat-ul Jihad Islami, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Al Akhtar Trust.

  4. Marc Polymeropoulos:

    It took us 10 years to find Osama bin Laden, i would just urge patience and continued investigation by the intelligence community and the Department of Defense.

  5. Zacarias Moussaoui:

    I also proclaim unequivocally my opposition to any terrorist action, attack, propaganda against the U.S. This undated file photo provided by the Sherburne County Sheriff Office shows Zacarias Moussaoui. Moussaou, the only man ever convicted in a U.S. court for a role in the Sept. 11 attacks now says he is renouncing terrorism. ( Sherburne County, Minn., Sheriff's Office via AP, File) He also renouncedAl Qaeda and the Islamic State terror groups. The motion was made in an attempt to relax the special administrative measures under which he serves his sentence. He also asked thatRudy Giuliani, New Yorks mayor at the time ofthe plot andPresident Trumps personal lawyer, or famed attorney Alan Dershowitz represent him in a civil trial. His remarks contradict his action during his 2006 trial, whenhe narrowly escaped the death penalty. During the proceedings, he taunted victims and flashed a victory sign after a jury opted to sentence him to life in prison. God save Bin Laden, you will never get him.
