Facebook’s Cryptocurrency (tiền ảo, tiền mã hóa) Is a Nail in the Coffin for ‘Blockchain Not Bitcoin’.

President Trump's tenacity (sự bền bỉ) regarding (đối với) adding the citizenship (quyền công dân) question to the census (điều tra dân số) is his attempt (sự cố gắng) to put one more nail in the coffin of democracy (chế độ dân chủ).

When Vijay Shankar was ruled out (loại khỏi) of the World Cup due to a toe injury, it was expected that Rayudu would finally get a call but again, the team management caught us off guard (đề phòng) by announcing (thông báo) Mayank Agarwal as his replacement (sự thay thế). It was a surprising decision to replace the middle-order batsman (vận động viên chơi cricket) by an opening batsman who has never played an ODI for India before. It must have been very frustrating (bực dọc) for Rayudu. It was the final nail in the coffin for Rayudu’s dream of playing the World Cup.
