"All eyes are on" nghĩa là gì?

'All eyes are on sb/sth' nghĩa là mọi người ai cũng chú ý ai/điều gì xem việc gì sẽ xảy ra tiếp theo; 'mọi con mắt dồn về'...

Ví dụ
All eyes are on swing state (tiểu bang mà người ta không chắc là sẽ dồn phiếu cho Đảng Cộng hòa hay Đảng Dân chủ (khi bầu Tổng thống Mỹ); tiểu bang dao động) Florida as recount (kiểm lại phiếu) begins.

Why all eyes are on Brisbane’s prestige property market (thị trường bất động sản) right now.

According to analysts at Danske Bank, all eyes are on the Brexit developments and the future of Theresa May as UK prime minister.

At the time, all eyes were on one state-owned enterprise: China Telecom, which was scheduled to make an unprecedented (chưa từng có tiền lệ, vô tiền khoáng hậu) initial public offering of its shares in Hong Kong and New York in just weeks. The $4.22 billion deal was constructed around the mobile telecommunications assets of two thriving Chinese coastal provinces, but because of the complex (phức tạp), scattered (rải rác) nature of the country’s telecom system, a marketable company had had to be built from scratch (từ con số 0).

người đàn ông 'điên điên khùng khùng' ra lệnh cho báo ăn thịt nhân viên sở thú :)

Police say a man was wandering (đi thơ thẩn, lang thang) through Dickerson Park Zoo Tuesday night after it had closed, acting odd (kỳ cục, kỳ quặc) and refusing to leave.

Joseph L. Binford, 37, was flailing (vụt, quật) his arms about and talking to people who weren't there.

When a zookeeper (nhân viên sở thú) confronted (đe dọa, đương đầu) him, the man allegedly (bị cáo buộc) commanded (ra lệnh) the zoo animals to eat the zookeeper. The animals — identified by a zoo spokeswoman as cheetahs (báo) — ignored his commands.

Two officers responded to the zoo and they found Binford on a grassy hill. He was screaming unrecognizable (không thể nhận ra) statements (tuyên bố, bày tỏ, trình bày) about "God" and "Lucifer," while holding a silver object in each hand.

Police commanded Binford to drop the objects, but Binford, like the cheetahs, did not obey commands. Instead, Binford ran up to one of the officers and hurled the silver object — later determined to be a dinner fork (cái dĩa) — at him.
