Examples of notable in a Sentence

  1. Jeremy Warner:

    One of the notable things is that only two of these patients got these drugs as part of a clinical trial. The rest of them were given the drugs off label -- since these drugs are generally available that's at the discretion of the treating provider, but it's still notable, patients with all levels of severity of Covid-19 received these drugs, although certainly the patients that were hospitalized were more likely to receive these drugs.

  2. John Sherwood:

    A notable aspect of his naval aviation career was luck, if he had been any other pilot, [ the Navy ] might’ve not given him another chance.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    We often hear the phrases like "Universe sending messages" or "Serendipity" whenever people describe an unexpected life-changing event, or an invention that happened unexpectedly as a totally unintended consequence of otherwise normal course of actions. As a Scientist, I do think that no new invention happens by either best design of experiments or coincidental chance taken alone. A deeper analysis always reveals that any notable invention is often the result of a synergistic meeting of statistical probability with well planned strategy, i. e. it's a combination of uncertainty with certainty that occurs at right time in right place. As Louis Pasteur said it correctly, "Dans les champs de l'observation le hasard ne favorise que les esprits préparés.' meaning 'In the field of observations, chance favors theprepared mind.' So, you must keep your mind alert, sharp and well prepared at all times, because you never know when Serendipity would visit you, or when Universe would tap on your shoulder to give you the serendipitous signs. Only your prepared mind would enable you to welcome wonderful Serendipity in your life, and understand the subtle signs sent to you by Universe.
