"Freudian slip" nghĩa là gì?

'Freudian slip' nghĩa là lời nói lỡ lời, mà được cho rằng để lộ niềm tin, suy nghĩ hay cảm xúc bị đè nén/trong tiềm thức (a verbal mistake that is thought to reveal a repressed belief, thought, or emotion).

Ví dụ
Thanks, Time! We enjoy the Freudian slip of giving Hillary horns (sừng).

Internet users dubbed finger-guns his trademark salute, he’s had more than one on-camera Freudian slip, and his Senate swearing-ins are always must-see. He’s a meme-able veep for the Twitter generation.

labama Senator Jeff Sessions and the most conservative (bảo thủ) members of the upper chamber (thượng viện) seem intent (dự định) on blocking President Obama’s nominee for the nation’s top cop, Loretta Lynch. But the defiant (thách thức) Republican may have unwittingly  (không chủ tâm) admitted (thừa nhận) defeat (thất bại) by already naming her attorney general in a Freudian slip. “I believe the attorney general made clear that she intends to advance the president’s policies and that they’re legal and she intends to defend them. The attorney general should not advance policies that are not justified,” Sessions told reporters this week.

Hành trình Hitler lên nắm quyền

với sự trợ giúp đắc lực của Prescott Bush - ông nội của Tổng thống George W. Bush.
-----
George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator (thượng nghị sĩ) Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects (kiến trúc sư) of Nazism (chủ nghĩa Đức Quốc xã).

His business dealings, which continued until his company's assets (tài sản) were seized (bị tịch thu) in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act (đạo Luật Buôn bán với Kẻ thù), has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave laborers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.

The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that the late senator's action should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Did The Bush Family Help Hitler Into Power?


Hội nghị Bilderberg và âm mưu thống trị thế giới

In 1954, the most powerful (quyền lực nhất) men in the world met for the first time under the auspices (sự bảo trợ) of the Dutch royal crown (hoàng gia) and the Rockefeller family at the luxurious Hotel Bilderberg in the small Dutch town of Oosterbeek.

For an entire weekend, they debated the future of the world. 'When it was over, they decided to meet once every year to exchange ideas and analyze international affairs.

They named themselves the Bilderberg Group. Since then, they have gathered yearly in a luxurious hotel somewhere in the world to try to decide the future of humanity.


"Full tilt" nghĩa là gì?

'At full tilt" nghĩa là rất mau, hết tốc lực.

Ví dụ
All too often cars are loud from outside but not as much in. At full tilt, on a windy road, I could have sworn the tailpipes turned inward to face the cabin, filling my ears with the roar of a billion dying hydrocarbons.

The challenge now is to ensure Ashley Williams and Co keep pushing until the final day of the campaign. If they are not at full tilt, after all, Swansea could endure a painful run-in given that many of their opponents have plenty to play for.

While the facility is a big industrial user of power -- about 180MW when it's running at full tilt -- it's not quite powerful enough to dim the lights or send the air-conditioning down in surrounding areas.

Stunningly vivid surveillance footage (cảnh quay) - much of it seen by the public for the first time today - shows Dzhokhar Tsarnaev bolting down (chạy lao đi) Boylston Street at full tilt seconds after the bomb blast that murdered Martin Richard, 8, and Boston University graduate student Lingzi Lu, 23.

Bush nói điều gì đã xảy ra với Trung tâm Thương mại Thế giới ngày 11/9?

Bush says this:
"For example, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed described the design of planned attacks of buildings inside the U.S. and how operatives (phần tử khủng bố) were directed to carry them out. That is valuable information for those of us who have the responsibility to protect the American people. He told us the operatives had been instructed (chỉ thị) to ensure that (đảm bảo rằng) the explosives (thuốc nổ) went off (phát nổ) at a high — a point that was high enough to prevent people trapped above (mắc kẹt) from escaping (chạy thoát)."

It sounds eerily (kỳ lạ) like what happened at the WTC on 9/11. Was he referring that the "terrorists" planted explosives in the towers or that foiled (thất bại) plots (âm mưu) had planned to use that tactic? Or was he referring to the WTC?
Slip of the tongue! Freudian slip (lỡ lời)?

Người trong cuộc ở Hollywood nói gì?

WOW! This one is a Doozy!! I stumbled upon a fascinating blog from 5 years ago from a woman that had worked in many areas of the Entertainment Industry (from Broadway to Hollywood).

What followed were some fascinating observations on MANY celebs that have never been mentioned in these "conspiratorial circles" before, along with many that have, but with new information. She covers everything from mind controlled models, Michael Jackson clones, where the d-list actresses have gone, "serpents" in the Industry, to secrets behind Beauty Pageants and more.

I compiled some of the most interesting here.

Cẩn thận với chiêu ăn cắp mã pin thẻ ATM

-----
There's a new way for thieves to steal your ATM PIN code or find out which numbers you pressed on many keypads (like number door locks): All they need is an iPhone case that shows infrared (tia hồng ngoại).

Mark Rober demonstrates this new simple way for 'bad guys' to steal your ATM pin code without you noticing.

Fortunately, the way to prevent this from happening is also very simple. This information is so important to SHARE — help your family and friends protect themselves!

Đường: sự thật cay đắng

Tháp Tesla ở Nga

mạnh hơn tất cả các cơ sở phát điện hiện tại ở Nga (kể cả hạt nhân)...
-----
Western energy sanctions (cấm vận năng lượng) levied (áp đặt) against Russia are already threatening to trickle down (chảy nhỏ giọt) and compromise the energy security of the entire EU, according to the most recent reports.

Amid economic and political instability, ingenuity (tài khéo léo) often arises. 40 miles west of Moscow lies "The High Voltage Marx and Tesla Generators Research Facility."

Russia has long experimented both economically and militarily with Tesla technology, but now more than ever there is heightened interest in moving from tests to implementation. According to Russian sources, once fully online, the Marx Generator has the "power equal to all power generation facilities in Russia – including thermoelectric (nhiệt điện), hydroelectric (thủy điện), nuclear (hạt nhân), solar, and wind power stations combined." However, so far that potential has only been measured in microseconds. The following exclusive drone footage is the latest that is available of the facility. Perhaps the release of this footage is mere political posturing, but the principles of Tesla electricity generation do appear to be in place and bear watching.

Meanwhile, other serious efforts have been undertaken by Russian scientists to rebuild Tesla's iconic Wardenclyffe tower independent of this Marx Generator facility.

Cops use robots to defuse bombs (gỡ bom), confront barricaded suspects and rescue victims during disasters. But they also use robots that can see, record and track what you are doing all day long.

If you aren't paranoid by the thought of cops knowing your business (theo dõi bạn), watch as Reason TV counts down 7 Creepy Robots for Cops.

'Rip-roaring' nghĩa là to lớn, đồ sộ; tràn đầy năng lượng và sinh lực (full of energy and vigor).

Ví dụ
A rip-roaring rodeo.

China's rip-roaring economy.

Cardiff City fans won't gave Malky Mackay the rip-roaring reaction he enjoyed on his Anfield send-off - Nathan Blake.

Celebrating St. Patrick's Day alcohol-free: "The appeal is simple: People want to have a rip-roaring time and enjoy what the day is really about - which is to celebrate the depth of Irish culture," says William Spencer Reilly, founder and chairman of the New York event.

"Top out" nghĩa là gì?

'Top out' nghĩa là đạt đỉnh và ngừng tăng (to reach an upper limit, to cease rising); ngoài ra còn có nghĩa là từ bỏ sự nghiệp khi ở đỉnh vinh quang (to give up one's career just as one becomes highly successful).

Ví dụ
Collectors whose budgets tend to top out at about $50,000.

Consumption of the red metal, essential in wiring up urban centers, will likely top out at 5% this year, Li Baomin, chairman of China’s largest copper producer Jiangxi Copper Co., told reporters during the congress. That is about half the average over the past decade.

The $10 improvement fee, which pays for upgrading and expansion, has been unchanged since July 2004. Even with the hike, the North Saanich facility will have one of the lowest fees among major airports in Canada, Dickson said. Improvement fees top out at $30 per person at airports in Calgary, Edmonton, Fort McMurray and Quebec City.
