(1) Two men recently died, an ambitious neophyte politician and his political rival, in a bizarre shooting in New York's City Council chambers.(2) A muddled story, poor editing, a neophyte director, less-than-stellar special effects, and a couple poor casting choices have combined to make the movie a shadow of what it could have been.(3) And as far as the stuff that is really revolutionary, my neophyte status and lack of concrete knowledge when it comes to these things has prevented me from being able to really tackle the new and different within music.(4) DiMarco proves himself a capable director by sticking neophyte actors in extreme situations and then coaxing sober, appropriate responses from them.(5) Furthermore, experienced inspectors knew what, when, and how to pursue a subject that is unlikely to occur to a neophyte .(6) When his neophyte cast pull it off, their exchanges have an appealingly edgy authenticity.(7) He was a hero for most black people in 1960, and his presence gave the neophyte activists a clear sense of their own contribution to the growing civil rights movement.(8) The actual English teaching that gets done in this situation may be minimal, while the neophyte teacher is busy struggling for survival.(9) Porteous says her cast of 13 neophyte and four professional actors have ├ö├ç├┐really embraced├ö├ç├û the updated context.(10) The neophyte politician, who has served just one term on the Burnsville City Council, turned heads this summer when it was announced that her campaign had raked in more than half a million dollars.(11) He has been teaching Clay about the Nation and the Muslim faith, and the neophyte is so taken with the religious leader that he begins calling himself Cassius X.(12) Just as the new convert to Islam sees the work of God in all things, the Marxist neophyte is tempted to understand all human activity through the lens of the base/superstructure model.(13) But teachers rarely do this sort of thing, as it threatens their livelihoods and, besides, they are only sitting beside the neophyte musician for about an hour a week.(14) A neophyte researcher in the subject would be helped to get literature, but I am sure that such a tender plant would soon suffer multiple-stresses associated with uncontrolled information overload lacking structure.(15) The neophyte candidate claimed it was a security project run amok, making the whole affair reminiscent of Watergate: too much money pushing too many imaginative staffers toward too much mischief.(16) But the expectations being pinned to their neophyte shoulders are, to a degree, based upon what they might become more than what they are right now.
