Examples of spreading in a Sentence

  1. Kasia Sawicka:

    Logistically speaking, if you think of a rapidly spreading pandemic, having the ability to vaccinate a large number of people is really the only way we know to date how to deal with it. If you need to train emergency personnel, that presents a problem. What if we had a way to vaccinate people by just telling them to stick on a Band-Aid? because the payload can be delivered to areas where it’s needed rapidly— no special handling required— then applied to the skin by someone whose sophistication is limited to that of applying a Band-Aid… it becomes possible to address these major challenges that have long bedeviled the health care profession in delivering vaccines to underserved areas.

  3. Thiruman Archunan:

    Spiritualism exits only for individuals. Reason is born when two men interact; addition of more and more members necessitates the spreading of the reason culminating as culture.

  5. John Boehner:

    The Bible says beware of false prophets. And there are people out there, you know, spreading noise about how much can get done. I mean this whole notion that we're going to shut down the government to get rid of Obamacare in 2013 -- this plan never had a chance, but over the course of the August recess in 2013 and in September, a lot of my Republican colleagues who knew this was a fool's errand -- really, they were getting all this pressure from home to do this.
