Words That Have Lately Acquired New Meanings

The following words used to have innocuous meanings. The contexts, unfortunately, have changed, thus rendering new definitions:

favor, focus, protocol, clear, mililiter, features, supine, prone, clamp, mesh, fingerbreadth, brain, skull, clip, metal, friable, etc., etc.

Please feel free to add any words that I have omitted.
