His cars have the edge over his rivals.
Their strategy still has the edge over more recent approaches.

So far, theories and models that make the frame-content distinction have the edge over any that lack it.
The ILECs have the edge over the network components because their networks were built over the past 120

The first providers to implement the AIN features will have the edge over taking the customer base.

It is fair to warn that in the context of Predicate Logic Hilbert-style proofs have the edge over Equational-

imilarly, how do we know that the electronic mail attachment actually came from the stated sender or that it

Given the differences among the means of the three groups, you might think at first glance that Method B has

these differences, considered in and of themselves, are well within the range of mere random variability.
It gives them the edge over their competitors.
However, it is the constant, systematic exploration, bit by bit, never losing what has been found, that gives
RMHC the edge over our GA.
