Quá choáng

một phụ nữ ngồi ở thành bể bơi khách sạn và... cạo lông chân

The woman sits perched on the edge (đường mép, đường rìa) of the water scraping (cạo, nạo) away with a razor (dao cạo)

A group of children happily paddle (lội nước, vầy) back and forth in front of her as she shaves

'If public pools (bể bơi công cộng) have taught me anything, it's that people are disgusting (đáng kinh tởm, nhục nhã, hổ thẹn) animals (động vật).' wrote one social media user

Chơi chó chó liếm mặt

The bizarre (kỳ quái, kỳ dị) incident (việc bất ngờ xảy ra; việc xô xát, rắc rối) occurred Wednesday.

Richard Remme, 51, told 911 dispatchers (người gửi đi, người điều vận) that he had been playing (chơi) with his dog (chó), a Labrador-pit bull mix named Balew, when the dog accidentally (tình cờ, ngẫu nhiên) hit his gun.

The gun fired, injuring Remme.

"Unfortunately, in this case, you can't foresee things that can happen, and this was just one of those freak (điều kỳ dị, người dị hợm) accidents (rủi ro, tai nạn), Wrestling around with your dog, you wouldn't think it could happen, but it did and it was unfortunate."

Remme said Balew is a "big wuss" and instantly started whining (rên rỉ, than van, khóc nhè) after the gun fired, as though he knew something went wrong...

Câu hỏi thường thức

liệu tảo biển có khiến bò đánh rắm ít thối hơn không nhỉ?

Early indications (biểu thị, dấu hiệu; tác dụng chữa được bệnh gì, chủ trị) of a UC Davis study show feeding dairy cows seaweed (rong biển, tảo biển) may reduce (giảm) methane emissions (phát thải) caused by their belching (ợ to),

...The two test groups eat seaweed sweetened with molasses (mật đường) for two weeks at a time before returning to a normal diet for a week. Each cow eats a snack from an open-air device that simultaneously (đồng thời) measures (đo lường, đo đạc) their breath's (hơi thở) methane content. Their milk is also tested for yield, flavor and nutritional content throughout the experiment.

California lawmakers passed legislation in 2016 that forced owners of the state's 1.4 million dairy cows to cut methane emissions by 40 percent by 2030. Dairy farmers have experimented with greenhouse gas reduction techniques such as methane digesters in recent years in hopes of finding a cost-effective way to comply with the new regulations. Cows emit methane primarily through belching as well as defecation (đại tiện) and flatulence (đầy hơi; tự cao tự đại, rỗng tuếch).

“Results are not final, but so far we are seeing substantial emission reductions," Kebreab said...
