Examples of slowly in a Sentence

  1. The USGS:

    The magma chamber is likely imparting its own stresses on the crust around and above it, as the system slowly recharges. The stress drives fluids through cracks, producing the small quakes. The current pattern of seismicity is similar to swarms seen at Mount St. Helens in 2013 and 2014; recharge swarms in the 1990s had much higher earthquake rates and energy release.

  2. Cokie Roberts:

    I don't just see this role of women as caretakers in the world that I cover, I see it in the world I live in, slowly, slowly, slowly but definitely, the workplace is becoming a more humane place because of the presence of women.

  3. Stephen Guilfoyle:

    Slowly but surely that whole move has abated and stocks are now on the plus side. I am quite surprised by this, you don’t have a selloff in equities when there is a catalyst, a prominent catalyst, a good reason to make a sale if you were thinking of taking money off the table. This has to be considered bullish.

  4. Sarah Binder:

    Trumps deep unpopularity limits lawmaking in another way, first, the Democratic base shows little interest in their representatives making deals with Trump that would give President Trump credit and enhance President Trump position for 2020. NAFTA 2.0 is a prime example. Really not clear whether Democrats will get the concessions their base groups demand or the extent to which the Speaker might be dragging her heels. Either way, that trade agreement is moving very slowly. And because the president is so unpopular nationally and with independents, theres limited pressure on Democrats to resolve problems.

  5. Jonathan Schroden:

    They are slowly encircling all of Afghanistan's major cities.
