I've noticed that when people make vampire movies, they're always determining which of the rules they're going to stick to and which they'll abandon. -Alexandra Cassavetes

In the central Indian state of Orissa, mining has scarred the landscape, and it is already too late to secure most of the traditional elephant corridors. -Mark Shand

My father moved out to Park City in in the mid-'70s and lived in a Winnebago behind a hippie joint called Utah Coal & Lumber that was one of only two or three restaurants at that time. Park City was a sleepy little mining town, with not a condo in sight. -Ira Sachs

The work environment is very important in determining how enjoyable work is. It is very important to work with smart guys who have a superior level of intellectual bandwidth and still have softer skills as well. -Kumar Mangalam Birla

If it can't be proven that mountaintop removal mining is safe, we shouldn't allow it to continue. -John Yarmuth

There are several issues why we are opposed to bauxite mining in Visakhapatnam agency region, like environmental pollution, threat to rivers, and tourism. -Kishore Chandra Deo

At the height of Iraq's clandestine nuclear weapons program, which nearly succeeded in building a bomb in 1991, Tuwaitha incorporated research reactors, uranium mining and enrichment facilities, chemical engineering plants and an explosives fabrication center to build the device that detonates a nuclear core. -Barton Gellman

An important finding is that by determining the genome sequences of an entire family, one can identify many DNA sequencing errors and thus greatly increase the accuracy of the data. This will ultimately help us understand the role of genetic variations in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. -Leroy Hood

Confronting and undermining the narratives and ideas of extremism must therefore be one of our key tasks. To do this, we must retain the courage of our convictions in the face of extremism. -Jonas Gahr Store

Determining how many asbestos suits have been filed or how much companies have spent to resolve them is difficult. Cases are filed in state and federal courts, and many companies do not disclose their spending on settlements. -Alex Berenson

We need to keep examining evilness. For instance, I'm totally against the fact that Osama bin Laden was shot. I think that he should have been put on trial and exposed as that human being he was. I think he should've been standing mentally naked in front of the rest of us and stand to justice for what he did. -Niels Arden Oplev

The most important factor in determining whether you will succeed isn't your gender – it's you. -Angela Braly

By far, the most determining factor of any brand is the product or the service the company produces. Branding companies have very rarely any significant influence on that, but it is, of course, in their interest to amplify their importance. -Stefan Sagmeister

Having grown up in a military family, I know that politics should have no role in determining who is best qualified to lead our armed forces. -Ron Barber

If women want to ensure themselves a meaningful place in the future, they need to be among those determining how the technology will be used. They need to be among those deciding whether it will be the great leveler or simply serve to worsen social divisions. -Anita Borg

Interpreting anyone's marriage – a neighbor's, let alone the president's – is extremely difficult. And yet, examining the first couple's relationship – their negotiations of public and private life, of conflicts and compromises – offers hints about Barack Obama the president, not just Barack Obama the husband. -Jodi Kantor

You have to have a globally competitive mining dispensation. -Patrice Motsepe

I have confidence in mining. I see exciting opportunities in it. -Patrice Motsepe

The commencement of coal mining at Parsa Kente is a milestone event in coal mining sector. -Gautam Adani

If our inconceivably ancient universe even had any beginning, the conditions determining that beginning must even now be engraved in the atomic weights. -Theodore William Richards

I think that what happens for many Christians is, they accept their particular faith, they accept it to be true, and they stop examining it. Consequently, because it's already accepted to be true, they don't examine other people's faiths… That, I think, is not healthy for a person of any faith. -Adam Hamilton

Online games for data-mining have a short virtual shelf life. People get bored, especially if the game seems stagnant. -Peter Diamandis

A dapper Canadian in his mid-fifties, Rob McEwen bought the disparate collection of gold mining companies known as Goldcorp in 1989. A decade later, he'd unified those companies and was ready for expansion – a process he wanted to start by building a new refinery. -Peter Diamandis

I happen to be a big believer in home ownership. I'm also a big believer that if someone wants to have a crack at the mining industry in Port Hedland, then they should be able to collect their… benefits in Port Hedland even though they are from Alice Springs. It should be mobile. -Andrew Forrest

All industry, not just the mining industry, can get out and give Aboriginal companies a chance. -Andrew Forrest

A moment of disruption is where the conversation about disruption often begins, even though determining that moment is entirely hindsight. -Steven Sinofsky

Undermining life-affirming social solidarities and any viable notion of the public good, right-wing politicians trade in forms of idiocy and superstition that mesmerize the illiterate and render the thoughtful cynical and disengaged. -Henry Giroux

Each one seems to be, in some way, essentially different from the others, and each is a surprise to me. I think that making books, or any kind of art, might also be like mining. The artist digs into his or her life and imagination and never knows what they'll find. That's the adventure. -Mordicai Gerstein

I come from a tiny mining town in the rainforest in an island at the end of the world. My grandparents were illiterate. -Richard Flanagan

Don't sell credits; don't sell walk-on roles… If people want to back you, they'll back you. But if you have to entice people will walk-on roles and crazy credits, you're undermining yourself. -Dana Brunetti

Mother set impossibly high standards for us, creating tremendous pressures and undermining our ability to accomplish whatever modest aims we may have set for ourselves. -Katharine Graham

In addition to the wishes of the client, the position, orientation, and size of the plot also play an important role in determining the final plan of the house. The 'where' and 'how' of the exterior then follows naturally from all of that. -Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

I don't remember a single day during the time I was minister of gender, foreign minister, vice-president and president when I saw anything on the part of the men that indicated they were undermining me. -Joyce Banda

We have decided to diversify agriculture; we decided to develop our tourism sector. We have decided to develop our mining sector. So these are some of the things we're telling Malawians: we say this is what we need to do in order for us to get out of this total dependence on aid. -Joyce Banda

Every time the Tories get a bit of power, they rip off all the things I love… The mining industry. Milk. -Rhys Ifans

I like examining the ordinary, and by doing so, one hopefully reveals the extraordinary nature within. -Kevin Henkes

They say there's no second act in American lives. There's something there worth exploring. Giving up an idea of yourself, examining your failure, and seeing if that failure was the system's or yours. What does it mean to not turn out to be the person you want to be? -Scott Rudin

If a gigantic asteroid were barreling toward impact with our planet, you can bet there would be at least a few members of Congress who would insist on leaving it alone, either because they would see it as a warning shot from the Almighty or because a mining company with a savvy team of lobbyists had laid claim to the big rock. -David Horsey

2016 is going to be a fight. A fight between conservatism and a Democrat Party that is undermining the very character of our nation. -Carly Fiorina

I think I do have a way of predicting – not always accurately – what is a nerve-wracking day for actors, what may be a difficult scene or a difficult moment, how small – and it may be down to one line – a thing maybe that is upsetting or undermining a performance. -Kenneth Branagh

The story of mountaintop mining – why it happens, and what its consequences are – is still new to most Americans. They have no idea that their country's physical legacy – the purple mountain majesties that are America – is being destroyed at the rate of several ridgetops a week, by three million pounds of explosives every day. -Michael Shnayerson

I was born in 1951 in Kalgoorlie, a prosperous mining town 370 miles east of Perth, Western Australia. Kalgoorlie was a gold rush town which sprang up in the desert after the Irishman Paddy Hannan struck gold there in 1892. -Barry Marshall

Persistent inequality costs the U.S. hundreds of billions of dollars a year, undermining our global competitiveness, our democracy, and our ideals as a nation. -Wendy Kopp

As a founder of two organizations that recruit top college graduates to expand educational opportunity, I've spent a lot of time examining what's at work in successful classrooms and schools over the past two decades. -Wendy Kopp

Snow isn't just pretty. It also cleanses our world and our senses, not just of the soot and grime of a Fife mining town but also of a kind of weary familiarity, a taken-for-granted quality to which our eyes are all too susceptible. -John Burnside

The son of a Fife mining town sledder of coal-bings, bottle-forager, and picture-house troglodyte, I was decidedly urban and knew little about native fauna, other than the handful of birds I saw on trips to the beach or Sunday walks. -John Burnside

At 25, I made many companies. I was thinking more like a businessman or entrepreneur than a CEO. I created many companies, small companies, medium companies. I tried to be involved in many kinds of activities, in finance, in real estate, in mining. -Carlos Slim

Social Security was designed to give a few years of modest benefits to people whose bodies were worn out through coal mining, factory work and other physically demanding labor. -Louis Navellier

Your attitude will go a long way in determining your success, your recognition, your reputation and your enjoyment in being a lawyer. -Joe Jamail

When determining appropriate levels of compensation, management must determine if the employee turnover rate is too low, too high, or just right. If turnover rate is high enough to adversely impact the entity's performance, then employee compensation is probably too low. -Jason Chaffetz

The Western is as American as a film can get – there's the discovery of a frontier, the element of a showdown, revenge, and determining the best gunman. There's a certain masculinity to the Western that really appealed to me, and I've always wanted to do a Western in Hollywood. -Kim Jee-woon

One day when I was 16, I rode my bike to the nearby DMV office to get my driver's permit. Some of my friends already had their licenses, so I figured it was time. But when I handed the clerk my green card as proof of U.S. residency, she flipped it around, examining it. 'This is fake,' she whispered. 'Don't come back here again.' -Jose Antonio Vargas

The Federal Reserve's objectives of maximum employment and price stability do not, by themselves, ensure a strong pace of economic growth or an improvement in living standards. The most important factor determining living standards is productivity growth, defined as increases in how much can be produced in an hour of work. -Janet Yellen

Public corruption is the FBI's top criminal priority. The threat – which involves the corruption of local, state, and federally elected, appointed, or contracted officials – strikes at the heart of government, eroding public confidence and undermining the strength of our democracy. -James Comey

I saw 'Billy Elliot' again, and what I loved about it was the way it had become a social document, a reminder of what happened with the mining communities in the '80s. And I thought, 'Everyone keeps wanting me to make a sequel to 'Beckham,' but maybe a musical remake is the answer, embracing all this theatricality.' -Gurinder Chadha

We think that there really is racial bias in determining who people want to date. -Sam Yagan

Because we're able to adjust for compatibility – and what that means is we've already normalized for how well we think each person is going to get along with the other person – the only factor left in determining response rate, really, is the aesthetic appearance of the person who sent you that message. -Sam Yagan

Coming from the industry and maintaining contacts with producers and directors, I am very well aware that costs associated with movie production are a major factor in determining where films get made. -James Costos

War implies a lack of comprehension of mutual national interests; it means the undermining and even the end of culture. -Carlos Saavedra Lamas

Fossil fuels and mining is a short-term gambit. If we develop those resources at the expense of the environmental gold mine that is the Great Barrier Reef, we will all lose in the long run. -Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

Pollution is a serious one. Water pollution, air pollution, and then solid hazardous waste pollution. And then beyond that, we also have the resources issue. Not just water resources but other natural resources, the mining resources being consumed, and the destruction of our ecosystem. -Ma Jun

Wise is the man who does not disdain any character and instead, examining him with a searching look, plumbs him to the very main-springs of his being. -Nikolai Gogol

Struggling to end the war and to eliminate slavery once and for all by way of the 13th Amendment, with the amendment's prospective passage undermining the effort to make peace with the Confederacy and vice versa, Lincoln embodied the Great Man theory that leftists disdain. -Steve Erickson

With my fiction, I focused on chapters and overall conceptions, while in poetry, I crawled along in the trenches of each sentence, examining every word for a sign of a deeper significance. -Philip Schultz

Coal mining is an industry rife with mismanagement, corruption, greed and an almost blatant disregard for the safety, health and quality of life of its work force. Everyone knows this. Everyone has always known it. -Tawni O'Dell

I'm a novelist – not an expert on coal mining. I'm not a politician with an agenda to push. I'm not a reporter presenting facts, and I'm not a sociologist documenting the last struggling remnants of blue-collar America. I'm simply an author who sets her books in coal country because it's where I come from, and it's what I know. -Tawni O'Dell

Hypotheses should be subservient only in explaining the properties of things but not assumed in determining them, unless so far as they may furnish experiments. -Isaac Newton

Fiction about mining has a long tradition – Emile Zola's 'Germinal' and Upton Sinclair's 'King Coal' come to mind – and most readers will be aware of the industry's harsh conditions. -Floyd Skloot

Some of the traits that make you a great entrepreneur also work against you. Examining data of high-scoring people, we find that oftentimes the world frustrates them: They're super-smart, they're super-capable, and the work quality of their peers is vastly inferior to what they can achieve on their own. -Adeo Ressi

My process for determining which eras I'd write about was to just read history books that gave a really broad overview of Chinese history. And when I came across a historical figure or a historical incident that was especially interesting to me, ideas for characters and stories would surface. -Susan Barker

History, whether sacred or profane, hides her teaching from those who study her through coloured glasses. She only reveals truth to those who look through the cold clear medium of passionless inquiry, who seek the Truth without determining first the masquerade in which alone they will receive it. -Sabine Baring-Gould

A man's work and the conditions under which it is performed are tremendous factors in determining his character. -Charles A. Beard

That's what we were exploring on 'Larry Sanders' – the human qualities that have brought us to where we are now in the world: the addiction to needing more and wanting more and talking more. We were examining the labels put on success – is it successful to be on TV every day, to be famous, to have a paycheck? -Garry Shandling

Net neutrality sounds wonky and technical but is actually quite simple. It would keep the Internet as it has always been – cable and phone companies would remain mere gateways to all sites, rather than gatekeepers determining where users can go and what innovators can offer them. -Marvin Ammori

Approaches to determining stock values vary, but fundamentally, each company judging itself undervalued is saying that its future stream of earnings justifies a higher price than the stock market is willing to accord it. -Carol Loomis

I love the Marvel movies, but I always feel like we should be a step ahead of the movies. One of the reasons those movies have been so good and so successful is that they've been very good at mining the comics. -Jason Aaron

The idea that the EU is somehow the guarantor of peace on the continent – that is in itself rash, in my view, and risks undermining the vital role of Nato. -Boris Johnson

Reducing net E.U. migration need not mean undermining the principle of free movement. When it was first enshrined, free movement meant the freedom to move to a job, not the freedom to cross borders to look for work or claim benefits. -Theresa May

I think that what is happening now in terms of the Brexit vote does represent a serious undermining of the Good Friday Agreement. -Martin McGuinness

Look what's going on: the Iranians are spreading military capabilities throughout the region; look what's going on in Yemen, Hizbollah, their cooperation with Assad, terror activities the world over, undermining regimes and states. -Isaac Herzog

I passionately believe in heroes, but I think the world has changed its criteria in determining who it describes as a hero. -Richard Attenborough

Monetary conditions exert an enormous influence on stock prices. Indeed, the monetary climate – primarily the trend in interest rates and Federal Reserve policy – is the dominant factor in determining the stock market's major direction. -Martin Zweig

I do not believe there are any circumstances in which a judge should consider his or her own values or policy preferences in determining what the law means. -Paul Watford

If we are going to conduct a population-centric strategy in Afghanistan, and we are perceived as backing thugs, then we are just undermining ourselves. -Michael T. Flynn

It appears that the Obama Administration is attempting to silence public comments and once again pander to extremist mining opponents seeking to undermine a bipartisan jobs bill that is estimated to create approximately 3,700 new jobs and generate $60 billion dollars for our economy. -Paul Gosar

The VA does a lot of good things, but determining if a firm is a small business is not one of them. -Sam Graves

I have been in many countries, and I have found there people examining their own love of life, sense of peril, their own common sense. The one thing they cannot understand is why that same love of life, sense of peril and above all common sense, is not invariably shared among their leaders and rulers. -William Golding

My first job at General Motors was as a quality inspector on the assembly line. I was checking fits between hoods and fenders. I had a little scale and clipboard. At one point, I was probably examining 60 jobs an hour during an eight-hour shift. A job like that teaches you to value all the people who do a job like that. -Mary Barra

When my father started talking about strip mining in the Appalachia back in the '60s, I remember a conversation I had with him where he said, you know, this is the richest state in the country if you look at the resources and the land, but the poorest people after the state of Mississippi: the 49th poorest people in the country. -Robert Kennedy, Jr.

One of the things women poets have been engaged in – among the other things they've been doing – is revising parts of the poetic self. Re-examining notions of the authority within the poem, and of the poem. -Eavan Boland

Yes, Brazil, like the whole world, stands to lose a lot in a climate-altered world. But it's also one of the major forces determining our future: It's the home of most of the Amazon rain forest. -Gisele Bundchen

I have a huge fan following in Bellary, and when they met me, they told me about their problems. I have seen mining done without proper safety measures and not taking environmental protection into account. -Pawan Kalyan

As I approach the end of my life, I have even less and less interest in examining what have got to be very superficial evaluations or opinions about the significance of one's life or one's work. I was never given to it when I was healthy, and I am less given to it now. -Leonard Cohen

Our goal in the '70s was to end the closed door era. There were so many things that were off limits to women: policing, firefighting, mining, piloting planes. -Ruth Bader Ginsburg

We have the wrong impression of life. We think the very big incidents of our lives are consequences of huge dilemmas or major decisions. If we paid attention, we'd realize that the determining incidents in our lives are ordinary things. -Asghar Farhadi

If Oak Flat were a Christian holy site or, for that matter, Jewish or Muslim, no senator who wished to remain in office would dare to sneak a backdoor deal for its destruction into a spending bill – no matter what mining-company profits or jobs might result. But this is Indian religion. -Lydia Millet

Oil drilling and coal mining are killing endangered wildlife, polluting rivers, creating smog over wilderness areas and blocking wildlife corridors in America's most treasured landscapes. -Lydia Millet

Radio Astronomy has added greatly to our understanding of the structure and dynamics of the universe. The cosmic microwave background radiation, considered a relic of the explosion at the beginning of the universe some 18 billion years ago, is one of the most powerful aids in determining these features of the universe. -Robert Woodrow Wilson

There is no hint that Trump wishes to engage in or to foment violence against the enemies, such as immigrants, he has identified as undermining the American way of life. -Peter Bergen

Dodd-Frank greatly expanded the regulatory reach of the Federal Reserve. It did not, however, examine whether it was correctly structured to account for these new and expansive powers. Therefore, the Committee will be examining the appropriateness of the Fed's current structure in a post Dodd-Frank world. -Richard Shelby

With the mining sites, I found a subject matter that carried forth my fascination with the undoing of the landscape, in terms of both its formal beauty and its environmental politics. -David Maisel

Literature plays a huge role in examining difficult real-life issues. -Angie Thomas

We should make innovations in coal-mining and metallurgical industries in particular so as to revitalize the overall economy of the country. -Kim Jong-un

The very action of the proletariat is a determining factor in history. And although we can no more jump over the stages of historical development than a man can jump over his shadow, nevertheless, we can accelerate or retard that development. -Rosa Luxemburg

We are all cognitive misers. Our brains do not expend mental resources thoroughly examining problems when snap judgments will do. -Kyle Hill

The senior director at the NSC for the Middle East is retired Col. Derek Harvey, an Arabic-speaking intelligence officer with a Ph.D. who served as the head of the U.S. military cell examining the insurgency in Iraq in 2003. -Peter Bergen

America's decline would set in motion tectonic shifts undermining the political stability of the entire Middle East. -Zbigniew Brzezinski

Bitcoin is complex: the entire private and public key issue, the transfers, the mining of bitcoins… but if you tell it as fiction, people would understand and remember. -Ravi Subramanian

Hundreds of data-mining companies sell landlords tenant-screening reports that list past evictions and court filings. -Matthew Desmond

One of the signs of a bad coworker is a pattern of persistent undermining – intentionally hindering a colleague's success, reputation, or relationships. -Adam Grant

If you've ever had a coworker actively interfere with your productivity, try to make you look bad, steal your ideas, or give you false information, you've been the victim of undermining. -Adam Grant

Sometimes, when you are not feeling really good is when you tend to write songs because you are internalising everything, and you are examining your thought process, and you are quieter and quite still, so it is when you write things down. -Maria Doyle Kennedy

Previous experience, key skills, and education. They're undoubtedly all important things you consider when filtering through applicants in order to make a new hire. But, what's another major determining factor of whether or not that hopeful interviewee deserves an offer letter? Cultural fit. -Kathryn Minshew

We have suffered discrimination. We have suffered isolation and undermining. But we stand up for America, oftentimes when others who think they are more patriotic, who say they are more patriotic, do not. -Maxine Waters

We'll be examining and auditing and reviewing all of the programs of the department and really figuring out what is the core mission and how can the federal department of education really support and enhance the role of the departments in the states. -Betsy DeVos

Mothers have always held such symbolic weight in determining a person's worth. Your mother tongue, your motherland, your mother's values – these things can qualify or disqualify you from attaining myriad American dreams: love, fluency, citizenship, legitimacy, acceptance, success, freedom. -Jenny Zhang

The culture of undermining sends signals of disrespect. This approach not only saps motivation and undermines teamwork, it also lowers the motivation to work extra hours anticipating what can go wrong. -John Dickerson

I think the four major leagues ought to set up a joint commission – say, of retired judges – to rule on athletes who are accused of doing bad things away from the game. Then each league would retain its independence in determining what penalties their players should get for infractions committed within the sport. -Frank Deford

The bitcoin protocol is about mining bitcoin, not pricing bitcoin. There is nothing in the protocol about establishing a market price for bitcoin; you need a market for that, but what if all the exchange markets are shut down? -Max Keiser

Isn't the purpose of bitcoin mining simply to get rich – or not, as the case may be? Well, at 21, we are less concerned with bitcoin as a financial instrument and more interested in bitcoin as a protocol – and particularly in the industrial uses of bitcoin enabled by embedded mining. -Balaji Srinivasan

Conceptually, we believe that embedded mining will ultimately establish bitcoin as a fundamental system resource on par with CPU, bandwidth, hard drive space, and RAM. -Balaji Srinivasan

In the future, I expect to see bitcoin mining in places where electricity is free or cheap. You could put solar array in the Arizona desert attached to bitcoin miners, and instead of trying to ship that electricity all over world, you could ship Bitcoin all over the world. -Gavin Andresen

We set up a small bitcoin and ethereum mining operation… that miraculously now is actually making a lot of money. -Abigail Johnson

Sponsorship is sometimes about people behind the scenes who are sitting in rooms determining your assignments and your next career step, and you don't even know who they are. -Cathy Engelbert

One winter, I went to Erfoud to research trilobites and got to know the quarries, the dealers, and the remote mining villages. They are not easy places to visit, and this was a completely unknown corner of the world economy: children slaving away on desert cliffs to furnish wealthy collectors in San Francisco. -Lawrence Osborne

I spent a fair amount of time in Communist Poland when I was young – my wife was from there – and I had the impression that boredom was one of the things that was undermining that whole society from the inside. -Lawrence Osborne

I support adjustments designed to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of regulation without sacrificing safety and soundness or undermining macroprudential goals. -Jerome Powell

When it comes to salary negotiation, don't forget that salary is only one term of employment. What else is on the table – vacation time, benefits, bonuses, flex days? Before determining that these terms are 'must-haves' or 'giveaways' to get a bigger salary, find out what the counterpart has to offer. -Christopher Voss

Psychologism holds that logical assertions are percolations of brains. Thus logic is a set of rules for how healthy brains operate. Aside from the infinite regress of a brain determining whether a brain is healthy, we have the infinite regress of the idea 'All concepts are brain percolations' being itself a brain percolation, on its own terms. -Timothy Morton

Though suffering and trauma are not identical, the Buddha's insight into the nature of suffering can provide a powerful mirror for examining the effects of trauma in your life. The Buddha's basic teaching offers guidance for healing our trauma and recovering a sense of wholeness. -Peter A. Levine

Ironically, while many of us spend hours every day using small mobile devices to increase our productivity and efficiency, interacting with these objects, even for short periods of time, might do just the opposite, reducing our assertiveness and undermining our productivity. -Amy Cuddy

We need to work together to support common-sense solutions to establish and maintain regulatory certainty and predictability for the mining industry and reduce excessive, duplicative, and expensive permitting delays. -Cathy McMorris Rodgers

Coalwood, West Virginia, is the little coal-mining town where I grew up, and it was there that five other teenage boys and I famously built and launched rockets. I recounted this story in my memoir, 'Rocket Boys.' -Homer Hickam

The mining towns I describe in the 'Helium-3' novel series are not unlike Coalwood, but there is one major difference: Those towns, rather than being located in the Appalachian coalfields, are on the moon. -Homer Hickam

'Rocket Boys,' for one reason or the other, just happened to strike a chord across country and across world, maybe because it's set in a little coal-mining town. That's why NASA likes it – most of the engineers come from towns very similar. -Homer Hickam

I remember my doctors examining my vocal cords and asking if I had an eating disorder, and I instantly said no. But then my mom, who was in the room with me, said my name in her 'mom voice,' and I just lost it. I didn't realize that she knew or that anyone knew. -Lauren Alaina

There are a lot of writers who find a groove and spend a career mining that vein. I seem to be exactly the opposite. -Jennifer Egan

Despite the intelligence community's assessment that Russia interfered in our presidential election, President Donald Trump and Republican leadership seem wholly uninterested in examining how and why Russia targeted us – and what we must do to prevent it from happening again. -Mike Quigley

Our Committee should be focusing on real priorities – improving health care, combating climate change, creating jobs and making products safer – not attacking Planned Parenthood and undermining women's access to critical services. -Jan Schakowsky

Because of a jury-rigged and outdated system meant to track deaths, the government has trouble determining exactly which Americans are deceased. -David Fahrenthold

From lying about climate change, to undermining programs that make up our social safety net, to opposing laws that reduce gun violence, to fighting marriage equality, the Kochs' tentacles infiltrate all parts of America's public debates. -Sheldon Whitehouse

The inability or unwillingness of citizens to differentiate between fake and authentic news is undermining a fundamental assumption of democracy: the informed voter. -Richard Edelman

We have many opportunities in mining: we have more than 6% of world reserves of uranium. We have many unutilised assets. We have four million square metres in Mecca alone of unutilised state-owned lands. -Mohammad bin Salman

Technology is just one of the factors affecting the world of work. Economics, demographics, sociological trends, and government policies are four other core influences reshaping labour markets and determining how we will work for years ahead. -Alain Dehaze

Education is crucial in determining which profession women will choose, so it's important to spark interest in technologies at an early age. -Gillian Tans

We need to tackle extreme inequality because it is morally indefensible and socially corrosive – undermining our health, affecting our well-being, and undermining peaceful societies. -Winnie Byanyima

Workers know first-hand how corporate capture of government is undermining their rights and freedoms as citizens. -Sharan Burrow

Apartheid was baked hard in the mining industry because that's where it originated. -Cyril Ramaphosa

Small-company stocks, like any asset class, can get picked over from time to time, but there are fundamental reasons why diligently mining them with an eye for unrecognised value can get market-beating returns. -Whitney Tilson

The school in the Yorkshire mining village in which my father grew up in the 1920s and 1930s allowed only a few children to go to high school, and my father was not one of them. He spent much of his time as a young man repairing this deprivation, mostly at night school. -Angus Deaton

High levels of inequality generate high costs for society, dampening social mobility, undermining the labour market prospects of vulnerable social groups, and creating social unrest. -Jose Angel Gurria

I think if I had to choose another profession, I'd like to be a judge because I'm very capable of determining what's right and what's not. -Marvin Gaye

Unfortunately, hardworking, academically gifted young people are kind of lazy when it comes to determining direction. -Andrew Yang

Britain has been responsible for the undermining of democracy, turning a blind eye to abuses by its allies, using extraordinary rendition to get around the rule of law, passing over the denial of individual liberties to dissidents, and the evasion of the dismal situation for religious minorities. -Deeyah Khan

For millennials, conducting business with a purpose that goes beyond making profits is critically important in determining the kind of company they want to work for – and the kind of company with whom they are willing to do business. -Punit Renjen

Documentaries are inherently instinctual; you're constantly moment to moment, determining what the best place for the camera is to tell the story, usually in service of natural lighting. -Rachel Morrison

We imagine going to the moon and planting a flag, going to an asteroid and mining, going to Mars and setting up a colony. And I think that expansionist mentality is very self-destructive, especially given the kind of precarious relationship we now have to the ecosystem here on Earth, because it allows us to imagine that Earth is disposable. -Trevor Paglen

If what you're doing today isn't vital, you're certainly not going to have a seat at the table in determining what's going to happen tomorrow. -Kevin Reilly

What I do is not curing cancer or rocket science or lead mining – anything tremendously difficult or world changing. I understand where I am in the cosmic order of things, and I'm OK with it. -Jon Hamm

Many Western nations have made significant gains through automation and operational excellence, while emerging markets rely on ever-increasing numbers of workers. Each will improve their competitive position only by examining every element of operations to make existing resources more efficient and to deliver real value at lower cost. -Dinesh Paliwal

Sulfide-ore mining is one of the most toxic industries in America and has a long history of polluting waterways with acid drainage that contains arsenic, mercury, and lead. -Seth Moulton

The Internet is undermining moral values. -Mahathir Mohamad
