Diverts is the 3rd person singular simple present-tense form of the verb divert which has two meanings:
"Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking."
The business and record label executive, Allen Klein (1931-) once said:
"When we are dealing with death we are constantly being dragged down by the event: Humor diverts our attention and lifts our sagging spirits."
The Republican politician Rob Simmons (1931-) once said:
"I will vote against any bill that takes Social Security tax dollars and diverts them to any other purpose than Social Security benefits."
