How to use Cursory in a sentence as a adjective

Use cursory in a sentence.

Here's a 3 minute clip from Big Red's cursory visit to the nest on January 9; there's no sound for the first half, so don't turn up the speakers too loudly!

#!$%@&! hell, I need a shower after only a cursory visit to this nightmare website.

Eric gets political: You can bet your sweet potato ass that if you see me share a political article on on here, that I've read it and given it some cursory double checking to make sure it's an actual article written by an actual journalist with actual facts and not just some self-righteously infuriated jack hole ranting about his opinion and presenting it as fact. When I'm pretty sure my opinion is diametrically opposed to that of my friend's, even just some of them, I at least have the respect to keep it to myself rather than push it in the face of those it would offend.

Due to the overwhelming request to honor the promise I made to members of the Ghanaian community in Chicago about the review of the GNC Accounts, I am honored to present to you a cursory look. The fight for justice is just starting!

I am going to do a quick 5 Point Presentation countering the 5 Pillars: Government, Religion, Education, Medicine, Media to offer a cursory "run-through" to at least get people's attention with where I intend to go with all of my threading and blogging etc etc

I've gotten used to people misspelling my name over the years; I understand the substantially more common spelling is with an "i", it's pretty natural to assume! Here's the thing though: whenever you interact with me on this networking site, the proper spelling of my name is conveniently provided for you lest there is any confusion. In fact, in order to recognize that a post or message is from me, you have to give my name at least a cursory glance. Why oh why, then, is there an "i" in "Bryan"!?!? Some of you guys just baffle the #!$% out of me. Do you suffer from Brian damage?? I'm not mad, I'm just Brywildered!

NYC...the only place where a guy in the largest 10 gallon hat I've ever seen, carrying a 4 foot long stuffed bass toy, and singing Day-O, Day-ay-ay-OOO at the top of his lungs gets only a cursory glance from passerby.

There are a range of music business experts who can take a cursory look at your fan or friend activity and correctly identify how you got here. Also we can just ask the people at Facebook, YouTube and Twitter about your account. They will tell us.

Sideshow Bob is gonna stay on the sidelines for 6-8 more weeks due to necessary surgery on right knee. Now is the time for the rest of the L to lowball offers to Cleveland for the coveted but oft-injured big man. Of course, a cursory glance at his career stats shows this is exactly what was going to happen and will happen in every subsequent season.

A cursory glance at the policies of government, and judicial rulings; the prose of the press, pop culture, and reality TV are sufficient evidence to see the movie Idiocracy for what it truly is, unqualified prophecy.

I find it supremely ironic that conspiracy theorists are always saying we should think for ourselves, but they are so gullible. If something goes against the "official line", it's immediately accepted and shared, regardless of how ridiculous it is after even the most cursory examination.

Based on cursory digging and google-spying, I reckon William Empson's old flat in Sheffield might actually be let to students now. At least, one of the other properties on the road is.

Given the new Bowie a cursory listen. It sounds like my grief but then nostalgia and grief are related and the song seems to be about nostalgia. I get the feeling more listens would reward me but I'll wait till the album is out because i #!$%@&! hate itunes.

At 24 I feel I still have the same cursory understanding of women that I did when I was 16. There must be a course or seminar somewhere I can attend...

Despite a brave effort to avoid any more than cursory knowledge of Gangnam style, my seven year old dancing around with her baby doll singing "hey sexy lady" has required parental investigation of phenomenon... Disturbing indeed!

My eldest son had an interview today at CanadInn's. He spent two hours preparing and when he yot there he was made to wait half an hour because the Manager took a break and then when she got back did a short cursory interview. I'd expect more professionalism from someone in a leadership position with a company of that size. I wonder if she's the reason for the turnover.

A cursory explanation of the need to expand the territory for each of the Fluid Nations.

Tips for Home buying Made Easy.... Getting pre-approved will you save yourself the grief of looking at houses you can't afford and put you in a better position to make a serious offer when you do find the right house. Not to be confused with pre-qualification, which is based on a cursory review of your finances, pre-approval from a lender is based on your actual income, debt and credit history.

Worth a cursory glance; or maybe a reading; ... it's actually enjoyable and informing

And yet, people still look at me funny and think I'm an idiot for my Obsessive Compulsive need to wipe the top and rim of any can before I open it or drink out of it.. Not just a cursory wipe either, I push cloth into to groove around the top... Clean and debris free.

Took two days of pretty non stop effort but my teaching notes are ready for tomorrow and my presentation to my committee is done enough for a cursory review by my senior advisor tomorrow. Still a little work to do but at least it's reasonably close!

What’s the best way to get the attention of a music industry executive when sending in a demo? Just picture their usual response – a cursory glance at a web page or a CD tossed in the bin without being listened to. I can’t begin to tell you how many thousands of demos I’ve not listened to – and I’m confident that I have never missed a great demo in doing so.

This is worth a cursory look as I find it interesting to see how it could be done. If the wood supply and man power is plentiful, it would be a great way to provide water to say a cabin somewhere.

Based on a cursory reading of my first syllabus, I can foresee that this semester is just going to suck.

You went through the world in a cursory manner. Otherwise there was a world at every step.......

Quote Examples using Cursory

There are certain 'high' social and religious ideals that sound okay in my head but do not resonate in my heart. obedience is one of them. looks good on the surface, but there's a sense of duty, fear, human effort, that makes it a poor substitute for oneness. Love is not forced. Love flows...

The kids request her to redo their hair, but vidhi doesnt citing other work. arti comes with their tiffins. The girls tell arti that ansh is outside. arti too cant stop laughing at yash’s inefficiency and jokes about their weird hairstyles and begins to mend his daughters’ hair.

Arti leaves with the kids to atke them for school. when she returns, she hears a noise in the bathroom, and runs inside to find that yash is washing clothes. In their bathroom, while yash is trying to help her in washing clothes, arti tries to stop him from doing so. He says that she just has to pay taxes and he would finish all his work. He closes his eyes for her to kiss him, but her eyes wander to the gaping hole in one of her sarees that yash wasbeating with the washing bat. Before he can do more damage, she tries to get him out of the way. In this, she is about to slip in the soapy water lying all around, when yash holds her midway and they share a romantic eyelock. After some time, they break off their embrace when arti mention that its gone. when yash asks what, arti says ahe’s talking about the water and grumbling about it, leaves while yash curses the tap for its so incorrect timing. Scene 2: Location: At the temple While gayatri has trouble climbing the stairs, she is about to slip when yash holds her and she blesses not knowing its him. She is happily surprised to see him and they together climb towards the mandir. but they come across suraj on one of the steps, who gives him a stern look. He says that his family doesnt need the support of strangers till he’s alive. he takes gayatri’s hand from yash and takes her forward. While yash is stunned, arti is upset to see this. Gayatri too looks back at yash in sadness. Yash sits on the temple steps in despair. Arti goes to sit beside him and reminds him of his own statement not to be sad in tough situations and smilingly face the problems. she gives him her hand and he too places his hand on hers and they together proceed towards the temple while yash calls the kids too to join them. Inside the temple, yash arrives with his family while the rest of scindia family too is praying. The priest does everybody’s tilak. The scindia family’s prayers are disturbed when they hear yash’s kids talking of going to play and they are surprised to find them there. Buaji instigates suraj against arti accusing her of taking yash away from them and now putting up a pretense of being the ideal daughter in law, praying alongside them. suraj gives a cursory glance at arti filled with anger and rage. The scindia kids are playing to themselves, when ansh’s ball lands with some elder kids playing. When he tries to talk to them, Ansh is teased by some bullies who tease him when he says that he would get his father to deal with them. The leader of those kids push him and throw him on the ground while other laugh. As the kids start walking back towards yash, a man’s silhouette comes forward to ansh and holds out his hand to him while he looks at the stranger with surprise. the man turns out to be prashant when light falls on his face. He tells ansh that till ur father comes, these kids would have gone. So he advises ansh to go and push the kid that teased him back and with a force that he would remember forever because if he doesnt then they would keep making fun of him throughout. He goes over and picks up a fight with that kid but being older, he overpowers ansh who falls to the ground on his push. Prashnt picks a stone and goes over to ansh, asks him to stop crying and get up. He then advises ansh to be strong and not to cry, instead take his renevege as strong and bold people do. Prashant hands ansh the stone and advices him to go and smash the bully kids’ brain with the stone. Ansh follows his advise while prashant watches victoriously. The screen freezes on his face. Precap: Yash asks ansh to say sorry to the kid and his mother while prashant keeps arguing that ansh doesnt need to ask for forgiveness since the kid started the fight by pushing ansh first. Yash keeps telling ansh to ask for forgiveness, while ansh stands there undescisive what to do.

It appears as if roughly half the people in this country think that they're in mortal danger from their own government. That's a lot of people sensing a lot of malice and threat. I worry that I don't see it. Sure, I see inefficiency and incompetence, but I've always seen that - regardless of which party's in office. And frankly, I've always welcomed it. I don't like my big bureaucracies to be cold, calculating, profit-making enterprises driven by a steely, clear-headed singular vision. A cursory glance through history would indicate that well-organized governments tend to enjoy well-organized parades, followed by well-organized ethnic cleansing. Which is why I celebrate the magnificent, muddle-headed ineptitude of our democracy. As far as I'm concerned, a little confusion and waste may keep the trains from running on time, but it also keeps people like me from getting a one-way ticket in a cattle car. Are our tax dollars being misspent on poorly run social programs? You bet! Do we get more buck for our bang at the local Post Office, Amtrak station, nuclear submarine or methadone clinic? Of course we do! But keep in mind that bureaucrats who can't find their ass with a flashlight and a hand mirror are not likely to find you either.

Since probably the 1920s, housing ownership has enjoyed unjust praise. Every president made it a policy priority. I recall in the 1980s how Jack Kemp made house ownership a pillar of his political ideology. He often implied that it was the key to freedom itself. The suggestion was that somehow renters couldn’t really be good citizens. The whole thing was nuts. And it created a gigantic bubble that grew and grew…until one day it exploded.

"where are we now where are we now?" yea he's not dwelling on his past not like them rolling stones. Oh really? Bla bla bla. Enough already. Bowie, ever the arch twister around fingers. So when is 'elegiac reflection' less "cynically commercial" than a brilliant back catalogue. So much BS about Bowie. Get over yourselves. Appreciate it for the music in itself. The perils of working from home and hearing too much navel gazing on the radio!

Does it bother anyone else when people call fingers "digits"??? When a guy says, "I got her digits." Should we see if he has a bag full of some chick's fingers??? No. Just call them fingers. You can even go technical and call them phalanges. I don't even mind if you call them hand toes. Please, don't call em digits. Thanks.

In speaking about gun control the left keeps saying that Gun folks aren't bringing any solutions to the table. Possibly because the problem does not exist in the gun community? Why is this our problem to solve when this problem does not exist in our community? We do not glorify gun violence. We do not go around brandishing our guns. We do not take gun ownership lightly, and we absolutely respect our firearms. To do something to take away our rights will not solve the problem because we are not the problem!

We are frequently rebuked for acknowledging theological divisions between us and other anti-abortion groups and advised to stop talking about those divisions for the sake of focusing on what we all have in common: saving babies. The primary problem with that presupposition is that AHA's primary goal is actually revival through the preaching of the gospel, which, we believe, will change the mindset of a culture that approves of abortion in the first place. We will work alongside those with a different gospel or with no gospel to engage in various actions against abortion, but we will not stop evangelizing those who proclaim a false gospel that cannot save or who proclaim no gospel at all. If that is seen as divisive, so be it. The gospel of Jesus Christ always has been.

The paper examines the social role of Hindustani music in the Dharwad-Hubli region, situating the music’s early 20th century emergence and proliferation against and within the debates on language that were central to cultural transformation in that area. What was the problem of Kannada and more broadly the language question in the mid to late 19th and early 20th centuries? What might have been the role of vocal music in negotiating the language conflict? The paper suggests that Hindustani music is part of the cultural labour undertaken in the region during the rise of Kannada “nationalism”. The phrase draws attention to the nature of the work involved in cultural practice and performance, and the nature of performers’ activity, through teaching, singing, playing, evaluating and arguing about music. Cultural labour references a visible aspect of social transformation and social process, the latter to be seen as marked by elusive shifts in ways of living, thinking and creating. The formation of the taste for Hindustani sangeet in Dharwad is one result of such shifts.

We have a national database of registered voters. We mandate that voters register. Voting is a right guaranteed by the Constitution. Why not a national database of registered gun owners to trace guns to see if they fall into the wrong hands? Anyone who objects to that still has his head stuck in 1789, when our nascent country needed a prepared citizen militia because it couldn't afford a standing professional military--or even 1773, when government was something that needed to be violently overthrown. The Feds aren't the redcoats, and the NRA aren't oppressed colonists. Give it a rest, Minutemen.

Sooo... The guys on BBT need a new comic shop if women don't shop there. It should be a clue as to something drastically wrong if there aren't female customers or employees hanging about the shop. Also, I've been a nerd... well since I was knee-high to a gopher and the idea that the mere presence of a woman is so disruptive that I cease to function is quite frankly insulting to me and probably any women wanting to be part of the hobby.

" …what you're left with is: either Christ was who He said He was the Messiah or a complete nutcase. I mean, we're talking nutcase on the level of Charles Manson. The idea that the entire course of civilization for over half of the globe could have its fate changed and turned upside-down by a nutcase, for me, that's farfetched! …If only we could be a bit more like Him, the world would be transformed. When I look at the Cross of Christ, what I see up there is all my s--- and everybody else's. So I ask myself a question a lot of people have asked: Who is this man? And was He who He said He was, or was He just a religious nut? And there it is, and that's the question. And no one can talk you into it or out of it." Bono

Sorry - but when people are being vomited on by drunks sitting a row behind, it's time for our city to take a step back and analyze who gets to go to Packers games. My proposal is simple, instead of the cursory pat downs that truly do nothing as people enter the stadium - instead, administer breathalyzers to all who want to enter with a ticket to see the game. .08 or higher, you don't get to enter. To those who have gone to games with me in the past who are laughing right now, yeah - I know that there have been a few games over the past 20 years to which I would have been banned. However, enough is enough when I hear what an amateur hour that Lambeau has become recently.
