"Until all hours (of the day and night)" nghĩa là gì?

'Until all hours (of the day and night)' nghĩa là rất muộn, đêm khuya hoặc sáng sớm.

Ví dụ
We were introduced at an event by a colleague who then had to leave, and we stayed out until all hours drinking wine and talking.

Whether you've just launched your start-up or your boss expects you to be chained to your desk until all hours, work pressure can easily be a fast-track to biscuit jar and vending machine raiding.

Teens, in particular, tend to stay up until all hours of the night on weekends and then sleep until noon. There is actually a physiologic reason for this, but it can throw off their weekday wake ups.

My husband and I were up until all hours on Christmas Eve trying to work out the calorie count in every stuffing ball, it worked but sobbing over calculating the calories is something I'll always remember.

Đường tình đôi ngả

jeff, người giàu nhất thế giới, sẵn sàng "rũ bỏ" 68 tỷ usd khỏi tài sản của mình để khỏi phải rửa bát...

...Bezos, worth an estimated $136.2 billion, is the richest person in the world. It is not yet clear how the divorce (ly dị) will impact (tác động, ảnh hưởng) his net worth (giá trị tài sản ròng), or whether it will affect (ảnh hưởng) his stake (cổ phần nắm giữ) in Amazon, the e-commerce giant (người khổng lồ thương mại điện tử) he founded (sáng lập, thành lập) in 1994. Bezos, 54, owns roughly 16% of the business, which comprises more than 95% of his fortune. He also owns the Washington Post and rocket (tên lửa) company Blue Origin.

The couple lives primarily in Washington State, which requires divorcing spouses to equitably divide (chia đều) "community property," (tài sản chung) including all income generated during a marriage (thu nhập hình thành sau hôn nhân). "It seems very likely, if not 100% a certainty, that whatever Jeff Bezos has earned at Amazon has been community income," says David Starks, a partner at the Seattle-based law firm McKinley Irvin. He added, however, that through a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement (thỏa thuận tiền hôn nhân/hậu hôn nhân), "You can elect to have your assets treated differently, and that's not uncommon."

Moreover, "Awarding a spouse their share of a community asset doesn’t necessarily mean actually transferring the asset to them". In other words, instead of selling or transferring Amazon shares, Jeff Bezos could offer monetary compensation equivalent to the shares' fair market value.
