Examples of sweeps in a Sentence

  1. John Foster:

    The constant activity on the surface of the Sun is punctuated by violent outbursts powered the Sun’s strong magnetic field. Solar flares emit bursts of X-rays that travel outward at the speed of light, coronal mass ejections( CMEs) are giant eruptions of hot gasses from the Sun’s outer atmosphere. As this blast wave of solar material( plasma) streams towards the planets at 1000 km/sec, it sweeps up the magnetic field in its path, creating a magnetized shockwave of the type that struck Earth’s magnetic field on October 8, 2013.

  2. Claude M. Bristol:

  3. Patrick Henry:

    There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. It is vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, peace, peacebut there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

  4. Kurt Busch:

    This makes last weekend feel so much stupider, i wish we would have swept last weekend, too, with two weekend sweeps in a row. But well take what we got today.

  5. Letitia Elizabeth Landon:

    While bills are being brought into the House of Commons to regulate every thing, from the sweeps crying "sweep," to "emancipation, vote by ballot, and free trade," is there no county member whose "time and talents'' are devoted to "domestic policy," who will bring in a bill "for the better regulation of the marriage ceremony," and put the canonical hours later in the day ? at all events, could there not be a special clause in favour of London ? A spring morning there is the very reverse of Thomson's description ; for "delicious mildness" read "a cutting east wind;" and for "veiled in roses" substitute "smoke and fog." The streets are given up to the necessities of life — to the milkman with his cans, the butcher with his tray, the baker with his basket ; all belong to the material portion of existence. Now, marriage is (or ought to be) an affair of affections, sentiments, &c. The legislature ought to give it the full benefit of moonlight and wax-candles.
