Wikipedia

  1. upsetting

    Forging is a manufacturing process involving the shaping of metal using localized compressive forces. The blows are delivered with a hammer (often a power hammer) or a die. Forging is often classified according to the temperature at which it is performed: cold forging (a type of cold working), warm forging, or hot forging (a type of hot working). For the latter two, the metal is heated, usually in a forge. Forged parts can range in weight from less than a kilogram to hundreds of metric tons. Forging has been done by smiths for millennia; the traditional products were kitchenware, hardware, hand tools, edged weapons, cymbals, and jewellery. Since the Industrial Revolution, forged parts are widely used in mechanisms and machines wherever a component requires high strength; such forgings usually require further processing (such as machining) to achieve a finished part. Today, forging is a major worldwide industry.

Examples of upsetting in a Sentence

  1. Kateryna Stepanenko:

    Putin seems to lack confidence that polls and protestations of support for the war will survive a general conscription effort.

  2. Katie Couric:

    I had no idea this was going on during my tenure or after I left, i think I speak for many of my former colleagues when I say this was not the Matt we knew. Matt was a kind and generous colleague who treated me with respect. In fact, a joke I once made on late-night television was just that, because it was completely contrary to our brother-sister relationship. It’s still very upsetting. I really admire the way Savannah [Guthrie] and Hoda [Kotb] and the entire‘Today’show staff have handled a very difficult situation.

  3. Hank Azaria:

    The idea that anybody, young or old, past or present was bullied or teased based on the character of Apu, it just really makes me sad, it was certainly not my intention. I wanted to spread laughter and joy with this character and the idea that it's brought pain and suffering in any way, that it was used to marginalize people, it's upsetting.

  4. Kelly Lopez:

    Obviously very upsetting. The first thought through your mind is, how did this even happen and how was it not even caught?

  5. Regina Bailey:

    I am a strong supporter of Bernie Sanders too, but what I love about Elizabeth Warrens most of all is Elizabeth Warrens ability to reach across and talk to people in a different way, it's not as upsetting to other people. I think it would be able to bridge the gap and to be able to sway other voters more so than Bernie Sanders.
