I think that people, despite my law enforcementbackground, view me as taking these consistentlyprogressivestands, and I think that, philosophically, there is a desire to get at that person. But I think the stands I have taken are totally consistent with a person who is looking at things realistically, factually.
I always thought I’d eventually learn how to draw really well, and despite constantevidence to the contrary, I just kept on trying.

Netflix, despite the fact that they compete very aggressively with Prime Video on the Amazon side, they run everything on top of AWS and have for several years – same with Disney, Warner, Fox, HBO and Turner, they all run on AWS.

She’s true to herself and she’s determined. She has things going against her, but she forges ahead despite all of that. I think that’s encouraging. She’s got some problems, but she has hope and tries to plow through things. I think that’s a good role model.
Despite the success cult, men are most deeplymoved not by the reaching of the goal but by the grandness of the effort involved in getting there – or failing to get there.

Being in a first-world country, it’s like we have a first-row seat to witnessing humanity, but we’re not really witnessing anything. Despite all the new technological tools we’ve been given, we’re still powerless, watching everything happen like it’s a theatricalperformance.
This is the great crisis in football now. It’s not just Rangers; it’s a lot of clubs. Big clubs always create more debt despite the huge income they have. It’s almost an achievement, isn’t it? They make so much money, and yet, still, their debtsrise and rise and rise. How does that happen? It’s absurd.
Despite our very recent appearance on the planet, humanity combines arrogance with increasing materialdemands, even as we become more numerous. Our toughness is a delusion. Have we the intelligence and discipline to vigilantly guard against our tendency to grow without limit?
They all matter to me, whether I’m working on a Sam Jackson film for a week or I’m the star of my own TV series – I take it all very seriously, and I have a healthy respect for the work in general, despite the role.
My life has shifted to different levelsfinancially, in terms of fame as a result of being blessed enough to be able to share my music with the world, and what that has done for me. Despite all of that, I always want people to listen to my music and be able to relate to it as well as to me.
I think of myself as unconventional, I guess. I maybe always had a problem with authority, like a stubbornness about what’s expected – despite wanting to get some recognition through performing – but also not always wanting to do the expected thing.
My grandmother was a kind of Scarsdale, New York, society woman, best known in her day as the author of the 1959 book ‘Growing Your Own Way: An InformalGuide for Teen-Agers’ – this despite being a person whose parenting style made Joan Crawford’s wire hangers look like poolnoodles.
The fascination with Judas has persisted despite the fact that there is no evidence of the hard facts of his life. Even the ‘Iscariot’ attached to him may be nothing more significant than a corruption of the name of the town from which he came.
When the Holocausthappened, I was 15 years old. My parents kept it a secret from me, despite belonging to the Red Cross. I only found out about it much later. Even today I still feel guilty, because I was an ignoramus between the age of 15 and 25. I am sorry I couldn’t stand up for them.
Despite the fact that one in every two men and one in every three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, no one ever expects it to happen to them. I surely didn’t. I was an otherwise healthy 37-year-old when I was diagnosed in 1996 with multiple myeloma, the same rare cancer Tom Brokaw has.
The U.S. uses most of its oil for transportation. We can limit U.S. demand for oil by requiring automakers to use the technology that already exists to improve fuel economy – technology that the automakers refuse to bring into the market despite societal demand.
The protest that we go to or the time that we stand up for someone or do the right thing – despite its difficulty… We might not see the return of it, but who knows whose lives we can change by doing those things.

On occasion, terrorists will succeed despite our best efforts. That is part of the legacy of 9/11. But 9/11 also shows us that while terrorists can destroy, they are unable to create.
When I was learning by myself, despite my parents, despite my teachers, despite society, when I was fighting for building my life as a young wire walker at age 16, I didn’t have feelings, I had certainties.
It’s no accident that I’m not married and don’t have kids yet. Because, despite what I’ve achieved in my career, I’m always wondering when somebody‘s gonna tap me on the shoulder and say, ‘OK, the gig is up.’
Cheese is good. And Britain, despite the grumblings of the French and the outrage of the Swiss, not to mention some plucky challenges from Italy, Austria, and Spain, has some of the best cheese in the world. We’re world leaders in cheese.

When my company was first getting off the ground, we were completely lost in the shuffle, despite our best efforts. In 2012, however, we had a 28-foot-long, 15,000-pound secret weapon. To stand out amid the gala parties and blow-out bashes hosted by much biggertech companies, HootSuite decided to take to the streets.
Despite the adversity that George Floydendured, he was full of life and love for his family, friends, and loved ones. It was in honor of his life that millions took to the streets in struggle for a world where George Floyd would never have been taken from us.

With health care, despite the fact that we as a nation have already chosen to provide health care in one form or another to everyone, we have, until Obamacare, chosen to pick the least cost-effective means, a mix of private and public offerings, of providing that care. That makes no sense.
My father was raised in an orphanage, and my mother was an immigrant from Poland whose first childhood memory was of hunger. Somehow, despite all of that, I am called a member of the ‘elite.’ If so, I damned well earned it.
Engaging in good habits 90 percent of the time, while indulging in bad habits 10 percent of time, places you at risk of being like a hamster running in a wheel. Despite all the energy you’re exerting, you won’t move forward. You’ll never be able to outrun your bad habits.
I don’t portray a terrorist. The American fans label me a terrorist. It doesn’t matter what I claim to be: in their eyes, I am whatever they say I am despite the fact that I’m not committing any ‘acts of terror.’ I ask you, how am I portraying a terrorist? Because I look like a Muslim?
Gail didn’t want me commenting on the opinion pages. I was hired by the news department and, despite the rabid assertions of the Times’ enemies and detractors, the two really have nothing to do with each other.
I love the Altai Mountains. Crimea, despite all the conflict, is a remarkable place historically, culturally and physically. The mountains drop down into the sea. Porpoises swim in the shallows. Horses gallop through the grass. There are huge rocks, castles, caves.
People are frustrated. This is the most generous country in the world when it comes to immigration. There are a million people a year who legally immigrate to the United States, and people feel like we’re being taken advantage of. We feel like despite our generosity, we’re being taken advantage of.
I think that the public debate that we had on the Iran deal was very important. That’s probably one of the most consequential things most of us will ever vote on ; a nucleararms control agreement with a mortalenemy. And the White House – despite all their efforts – failed miserably.
I am convinced that, despite what you think of Obama, I don’t think Obama has a person-to-person connection with people. I think people love him because of his race and feel sorry for him, object of sympathy. I think people feel he’s a victim, he portrays himself as a victim of America; he gets sympathy that way.
I don’t really measure success by anything other than if I am happy. That is success to me. Am I happy waking up every morning? And despite the challenges of running my own business, do I look forward to going to work? Absolutely.
I’d like to think life has improved since 1850, despite the long hours we all seem to spend slaving over hot computers, but the psychological journeys remain the same – the search for love, identity, a meaningful place in the world.
We must immediately find the way to come and say to the U.S., ‘Despite the difficult differences of opinion between us, there are no closer friends, and no better allies than you to us, and we to you.’

I think despite what we’ve seen on TV, people like seeing women and knowing about women’s stories and their struggles and their truth. I think we’ve seen it in a lot of these shows – when there’s a cast of all women, it does very well.
A year after I got married, ‘Prem Kahani,’ ‘Roti’ and ‘Aap Ki Kasam’ released. I refused ‘Safar,’ ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’… because I was hellbent on getting married. Despite that, the phone never stopped ringing, whether I was in Mombasa or London.
Our creator is the same and never changes despite the names given Him by people here and in all parts of the world. Even if we gave Him no name at all, He would still be there, within us, waiting to give us good on this earth.
‘Selma’ is a story about voice – the voice of a great leader; the voice of a community that triumphs despite turmoil; and the voice of a nation striving to grow into a better society. I hope the film reminds us that all voices are valuable and worthy of being heard.
Of all the writers I have read, Vladimir Nabokov has made the biggest impression on me because he, despite living through the 1917 February Revolution, forced exileamidst the anti-Semitism in Nazi Germany, the two World Wars and quite a lot of controversy, was an author who never gave up.
Despite fashioning myself a very unconventional lifestyle with my music, I had ended up in a really conventional situation. I was also guilty of becoming a people-pleaser, which is absolutely exhausting and not a sustainable way of living. It can be so damaging to fall into that trap, especially in close relationships.
Despite my best efforts, word that an American tourist was in town quickly made its way around Grozny. That I had come to Chechnya not for business or NGO work, but to see the sites and meet the people, was notable enough to be broadcast throughout the republic.
If I was to base my opinion on Twitter, I’d be like, ‘Oh my God, I must be the most hated woman in Britain.’ But I go around the street, and despite all the abusive messages, not one person comes up to me and says anything other than nice things and ask for a picture.
Because I knew how hard I worked, I knew the pain, I knew the sacrifice, I knew the tears, I knew everything. Despite everything, I stuck to it. I toughed it out, and I kept my head in the game, even when the odds were against me.
Circulating through the children’s ward and seeing terminally ill kids, headsshaved, smiling and having a ball despite the tubes and needlessticking into them, I thought: What do I have to worry about? If God takes me, at least I’ve lived for 35 years.
The first ‘Polly and the Pirates’ is about a prim and proper girl who gets kidnapped out of her comfy boarding school by a bunch of pirates that think she’s the daughter of their long lost queen. In the course of the adventure, she discovers she has a natural penchant for swashbuckling, despite her sheltered childhood.
Despite all of our games, all of our success together – ‘Elder Scrolls,’ when we started, it was a very genericfantasy. It had its parts. We pushed it to have more of its own uniqueidentify. We’re proud of the work everyone did there.
I’ve known Lisa Lampanelli for quite some time. We did the Shatner roast together. Lisa didn’t know Shatner, but she’s a popular roaster, so she was invited to do it, and she is fantastic. Actually, despite her public image, she’s a very sweet lady and very sensitive. She cries very easily. Most people don’t know that.
Despite its obscurity, probably no element on the periodic table has as colorful a history as antimony. Money, madness, poison, linguistics, charlatanism, sex – pretty much every theme that runs through the periodic table can be found in Element 51.
On the other hand, now that I’m not dependent on fiction for my income, I’ve been writing more short stories despite the fact that there’s no real paying market for short horror other than Cemetery Dance.

The Cold War did end in the victory of one side and in the defeat of the other. This reality cannot be denied, despite the understandable sensitivities that such a conclusion provokes among the tenderhearted in the West and some of the former leaders of the defeated side.
In India, sports as a career has its own set of obstacles, be it from parents or society, but Harjeet, despite circumstances, and without any support decided to fight and lived his dream of being a remarkable player.
You’ve got to be extremely careful, because you could be with a great team, and you could be the product of a great team. There are some players that stand out despite the teams that they play on, and there are some players that are good because of the team that they’re with.
Despite the belief of many career bureaucrats that elected political leadership works for them, our system is built on the idea that the permanentbureaucracy, such as it exists, works for the elected leadership, which in turn works for and represents the American public.
If my soccer career were over, I would still come here because of the people. And despite the fact I’ve had to skip some school for National Team purposes, I am looking forward to holding that Carolina degree as soon as I can get my hands on it.
One can only presume, despite unequivocal polling to the contrary, that Republicans believe relentlessly attacking womens’ abilities to make their own health care decisions is popular and will help them win elections. I believe it is at their peril that they pursue this anti-women agenda.
Despite the pain of his death, George is still very much alive in my memory today. A few years on from that tragic Christmas, I’ll sometimes catch myself thinking of our friendship and those years together as young kids in Wham!
Voter suppression in Florida in 2000 helped put Republican George W Bush into office despite losing the popular vote and the targeting of state legislative elections in 2010 enabled Republicans to gerrymander states out of Democrat reach.
A lot of people say that India has been held back by its democracy. But let’s remember that, despite being a poor country, India’s democracy meant that its government never let millions of people starve.
In survey after survey, people report that the greatest dangers they face are, in this order: terrorist attack, plane crashes and nuclear accidents. This despite the fact that these three combined have killed fewer people in the past half-century than car accidents do in any given year.
Despite being such a brilliant director, Hansal Mehta is a simple and down to earth man. He is very sorted and driven by passion. So that’s a rare combination – being a good craftsman and a good human being.
I’ve long been interested in how technology mediates desire and the way that our phones, an extension of ourselves, foster intimate interactions that feel so personal and deep, despite being relayed through a machine.
As a parent, it’s my responsibility to equip my child to do this – to grieve when grief is necessary and to realize that life is still profoundly beautiful and worth living despite the fact that we inevitably lose one another and that life ends, and we don’t know what happens after death.
Death, the real simile for disease – for when we are ill, do we not always feel like we are dying, even if it’s only a little? – remains, despite our secularism, the most metaphoricised phenomenon of all.
Despite what one might gather from the shrill rantings of the leftist commentariat, for whom religion is a sort of disease, religious difference in the United States has rarely led to serious social strife. That is no small achievement, and one that virtually no other Western democracy can boast.
Real men don’t know what they want for Christmas. Despite the fact I’m deeply disappointed every Christmas. I pride myself on not wanting anything. Children want things, women want things, dogs and cats want things, but men don’t.
She seems to be having a pretty good time despite her worrying. That’s Lily.
The inner me was always under attack by authority, by the way my parents wanted me to be brought up, by these English schools I went to. So I’ve always felt this kind of anti-authoritarian strain in me, pushing to express itself despite the obstacles.
I don’t see people voting for me for coming from a political family. I see people voting for me despite me coming from a political family.
My interest is that there is a disconnect between the science and the size of the threat that people mention about nature, the planet and the climate, and the emotion that this triggers. So we are supposed to be extremely frightened people, but despite that we appear to sleep pretty well.
I think Bush has a very selfish, arrogantpoint of view. I think he is interested in power, I think he believes his truth is the only truth, and that he will do what he wants to do despite the people.
Science is not, despite how it is often portrayed, about absolute truths. It is about developing an understanding of the world, making predictions, and then testing these predictions.
Some days if I am not feeling great or I feel a bit down or anxious, I just go for a run and I instantly feel better. Despite all the technology we use in training these days, it remains an amazingly simple way to energise your mind.
The reason I take Rush Limbaugh seriously is not because he’s offensive or right-wing, but because he is one of the few peopleaddressing a large group of disaffected people in this country. And despite his frequent denials, Limbaugh does indeed have a somewhat cult-like effect on his ditto heads.
Despite all the hype about local or green food, the single biggest impediment to wideradoption is not research, programs, organizations, or networking. It is the demonizing and criminalizing of virtually all indigenous and heritage-based food practices.
I must thank my good friend Nigel Brennan. His strength of character in the midst of extreme hardship inspired me during the darkest days. Despite our separation, he always managed to find small ways to remind me that there are gentlemen in the world, even when I was surrounded by just the opposite.
I love it when I surprisephotographers that, despite the fact that I am deaf, I am capable of meeting their vision. I love it that I can read their body language and know what they do not like and what they do like.
I know it’s kind of cliche to say Messi is your hero, but it was special for me because I was training with our boys’ team a lot in order to push myself. I was really inspired by the way Messi could still control a game despite being the smallest person on the pitch.
The federal government requires that its loans be paid back within 10 years of graduation, and Harvard has pegged its loans to the same 10-year timetable. Yet despite Harvard’s low default rate, the idea of years of loan debt is daunting for some students even before it’s time to pay back.
When I served alongside the brave women of our armed forces, who contribute so much to our country despite often facing discrimination on the job, it only strengthened my commitment to fairness and equal pay in the workplace.
TonyBlair and Gordon Brown committed to John Major’s spending envelopes in 1997. No-one said that Tony Blair and John Major were identical. This happens quite often that parties actually, despite all the sound and fury, agree on the overall need to make sure that we live within our means as a country.
To me, the biggest surprise is that Google still functions despite the explosion in the number of sites.
As an African-American, we stand on the shoulders of people who fought despite not seeing victories in their lifetime or even in their children’s lifetime or even in their grandchildren‘s lifetime. So fatalism isn’t really an option.
Average male pay is higher than average female pay for a simple reason. Despite decades of enforcedequality, women still have babies, and men still don’t. So women who wish to spend any substantial time at all with their own offspring will fall behind in their careers, and their earnings will be less.
Just after graduation in 1966, like many of my contemporaries, I applied for research training at the National Institutes of Health. Perhaps because his wife was a poet, Ira Pastan agreed to take me into his laboratory, despite my lack of scientificcredentials.
Our society is ridden with corruption and corrupt people. This is perhaps the reason why despite receiving several offers, I am unwilling to contest elections as I lack what it takes to become a politician.
Trump, despite his divorces and ‘worldly lifestyle’, appeals to evangelicals because he is wealthy, powerful, and pays them lip service. They support him because they are tired of losing the culture wars and are addicted to the perks of power.
On the campaign trail, Hillary Clinton emphasized her experience. Yes, experience matters, but judgment matters more. Despite her experience, Hillary Clinton’s poor decisions have produced bad results. Just think about it.
When I began working in Yahoo, my family moved with me. Despite our efforts, our kids wanted to study in Los Angeles, and I was forced to see my family and friends only on weekends. In the beginning I even enjoyed it, but knew that at some stage I’d want to go back home.
Despite a good subject if the director is not up to the mark, the execution can go wrong.
I am one of the few composers who has been lucky enough to manage to do songs with female singers, despite the labels and producers wanting otherwise. They don’t believe that songs with female voices can work and often push us to work with male singers.
I think what separates me from the candidates is the fact that I have a proventrack record of being a fighter. A fighting for what people believe in, whether it is popular or not. Despite the opposition, I stand true. Because people know that I will do what I say. And that I say what I do.
If you’re a gazelle, you don’t have a very complex emotional life, despite being a social species. But primates are just smart enough that they can think their bodies into working differently. It’s not until you get to primates that you get things that look like depression.
No purchase is so urgent, no bargain so rare, that you don’t have time to research it thoroughly, despite what they might have you believe. This applies, in particular, to infomercials that urge you to ‘Call now, while supplies last,’ or ‘Call in the next 10 minutes for a free gift.’
Despite the best intentions, companies often become culturally dysfunctional. This occurs when leadership has a perception about the culture that conflicts with reality, or leadership behaves differently than what might be written down.
My father was very proud of everything I did and he watched my career and my growing fame with great interest, but despite my mother dying so early on in my life, my relationship with my father – who was always a very remote figure – was never easy.

Despite the negativity coming from the President’s opponents, the United States remains fully committed to assisting the Iraqis in restoring security and rebuilding their nation.
Craig L. Thomas
Well, I don’t know if this is true of everyone, but I have this relationship with my parents where, despite however mature or articulate or grown-up I think I’ve become, as soon as I go home, I turn into this petulant 13-year-old, especially with the tone of my voice.
Despite advances achieved through objective scientific investigation, and the breaking down of long-standing fears and superstitions, the world is still not a reasonable place. Many attempts to make it so have failed because of selfish individual and national interests.
Despite the absurdity and the silliness and the triviality of the entire campaign experience, there is also something, as non-cynical as this sounds, kind of uplifting and strange about watching democracy unfold.
I began my career as a medical doctor in Ama Keng, a poor village in Lim Chu Kang. The people I cared for were ordinary Singaporeans. They were simple people who despite their hard work, had barely enough for themselves.
In college, I was a researcher/writer for ‘Let’s Go: Europe,’ assigned to Crete and Cyprus. I was supposed to go to England, but at the last minute they transferred me, despite the fact that I spoke not a word of Greek. I learned the very basics, and to this day can say ‘oil,’ ‘vinegar,’ and ‘boyfriend in America.’
Let’s stop pretending we can arrest our way to safety and security. Despite all the fine work that policemen and women do, we have got to find other solutions to deter crime.
For nearly a century and a half, this country deluded itself into thinking that its greatest calamity, the Civil War, had nothing to do with one of its greatest sins, enslavement. It deluded itself in this manner despite available evidence to the contrary.
Well when I was young, actually not just me, but we were all poor. Korea used to be one of the poorest countries in the world. Despite such circumstances, I was very, very fortunate to be blessed with having parents who always instilled in a spirit of can-do spirit.
On the whole, asteroids tend to leave Earth alone. And day to day, there really isn’t cause for most people to give them any thought. But despite being remote objects that most people have never seen, asteroids, and the threat they pose, come up an awful lot in popular culture.
I have to say that despite being born in a Congress family and being the daughter of a respected Congress leader, I joined the BJP and served the party, forgetting my past, and without making any compromise.
We are living in one of those rare moments in history when things may come apart and be put back together again in ways that will determine the future for decades or more, despite the endlessinnovations of technology.
Despite my great disappointment in American foreign policy, I am very proud of the American tradition of wild land conservation. It is the best tradition and example of land conservation in the world. It goes back a long way.
Insurance companies, government agencies, and the pharmaceutical industry all push for mental health care that is brief, intermittent, and focused on quick fixes, despite the fact that many people struggle with emotional difficulties that can only be addressed over time using special psychodynamic skills.
Art has a way of confronting us, of reminding us, of engaging us, in what it means to be human, and what it means to be human is to be flawed, is to be contradictory, is to be often weak, and yet despite all of these what we would consider drawbacks, that we’re also quite beautiful. Spin is the opposite.
Despite the often illusory nature of essays on the psychology of a nation, it seems to me there is something revealing in the insistence with which a people will question itself during certain periods of its growth.
Despite popular belief that watermelon is made up of only water and sugar, watermelon is actually a nutrient-dense food with a high amount of vitamins such as A and C, minerals such as iron and calcium, and is high in antioxidants.
We exist in this weirdly schizo culture, where sex is everywhere in the media, and yet, at the same time, you don’t sit down and have a conversation about what you did in bedlast night with your friends. Despite the ubiquity of sex, it’s still a taboo when it comes to day-to-day conversation.
Over the last 10 years a huge amount has been achieved in getting people into work. Measures such as the New Deal, tax credits, the minimum wage and improved childcare have brought about record numbers of people in work, a number that is still rising despite the global economic slowdown.
Metaphorical tone deafness is when people are unable to discern what is of value in something. I think I’m tone deaf to poetry, for instance. Despite having studied it into a second year of university, most of it just leaves me cold.
Hollywood is, of course, loaded with egos, but it’s amazing to see how, despite the egos, those collaborators pull together and focus on telling a story rather than butt heads and sabotage what is extremely hard work and investment just because their ego apparently demands it.
The high point was that the people are really nice – despite the crazy politics – and I loved being there. The hardest part was knowing some of the things I was probably going to write about Texas would make those nice people very unhappy.
Let’s remember the children who come from broken homes, surrounded by crime, drugs, temptation, their peers having babies out of wedlock, but who still manage to get a good education despite the many obstacles they face every day.
Despite the name, ‘lift and coast’ does not mean cruising. You’re trying to be as fast as you can, and you’re still going through the corner on the limit, but you have to approach the corner slightly differently; otherwise, you won’t make the end of the race.
Many people supported the Conservatives because of David Cameron, while many people supported Labour despite Ed Miliband. Deteriorating opinions of Cameron will therefore have a bigger impact on the Conservatives’ vote share than worsening views of Miliband would have on Labour’s.
Donald Trump, despite his campaign promises, this is not a guy who is going to be willing to send executive power that belongs to the legislative branch back to the legislative branch. I mean, Donald Trump is going to try to amass and consolidate power, given that he’s an authoritarian.
Human thinking can skip over a great deal, leap over small misunderstandings, can contain ifs and buts in untroubled corners of the mind. But the machine has no corners. Despite all the attempts to see the computer as a brain, the machine has no foreground or background.
Despite what anti-aging ads say, growing older can be better. I feel better in my skin, 100 percent. You have greater effects of gravity, but the better sense of yourself you have is something I wouldn’t trade. Women who lie about their age – ‘why?’
I was 21 and had been going out with my boyfriend for two years when I found out I was pregnant – despite being told by doctors that I was sterile. Jamie‘s father and I hadn’t discussed marriage, and to me, it wasn’t something to be entered into just to stop gossip.
Despite the disreputable company it keeps, bismuth is harmless. In fact, it’s medicinal: Doctors prescribe it to soothe ulcers, and it’s the ‘bis’ in hot-pink Pepto-Bismol. Overall, it seems like the most out-of-place element on the periodic table, a gentleman among scoundrels.
Over the last five years, the Administration and the majority in Congress have appropriated less than $900 million for port security grants – despite the Coast Guard‘s determination that $5.4 billion is needed over 10 years.

Despite the industry screaming we were crazy, it worked.
I am not willing to comment in public on the custodydiscussionsregarding my children. What I will say is this: I am and always will be a mother first, but as a single working mom I will do everything necessary to provide for my kids despite the opinions of others.

With Pablo, I lose my reason, and with me, he loses his head; and then all that’s left is a man pursued by justice and a woman pursued by the media who know and take care of and need each other, despite the pain caused by all the absences, all his crimes and her sins.
