Mở nhạc ồn ào ở khu dân cư, xử lý ra sao?

Gary Lee Lykins, 44, was booked into the Fort Worth Jail about 6:45 a.m., charged with deadly conduct, a third-degree felony (trọng tội).

Police were called about 2 a.m. to the couple's home. Investigators say the wife was playing music on her laptop when Lykins grabbed a handgun and shot the computer.

"The debris from the laptop caused minor injuries (vết thương nhẹ)," though it's unclear whether an ambulance (xe cứu thương) was needed.

When officers arrived, Lykins was holed up in the house with "access to several firearms," police said. A SWAT team was called, but he surrendered (đầu hàng) before they arrived.

There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.

Không có gì cao quý hay đáng ngưỡng mộ hơn khi hai vợ chồng hòa thuận cùng nhau chăm chút nhà cửa, khiến kẻ thù hoang mang và bạn bè vui sướng.

"A committee is a group of men who keep minutes and waste hours" nghĩa là gì?

đúng là chúng ta họp hành quá nhiều. Photo by rawpixel on Unsplash.

'A committee is a group of men who keep minutes and waste hours' có từ minutes là phút và cũng có nghĩa là biên bản (cuộc họp); cụm từ này nghĩa đen là 'ủy ban là một nhóm người giữ/tiết kiệm từng phút nhưng lãng phí hàng giờ' (chơi chữ từ minute) -> nghĩa là các ủy ban thường mất rất nhiều thời gian/rất lâu để hoàn thành việc gì (nếu có hoàn thành được).

Ví dụ
Elbert Hubbard once said that a committee is a thing which takes a week to do what one good man can do in an hour. Herbert Prochnow once joked that a committee of three gets things done if two don't show up.

It’s often said that a committee is a group of men who keep minutes and waste hours. If you don’t want your meeting to be a waste of time then make sure you take minutes. The reason for the meeting should be included in the minutes, what the meeting was about, when it took place, where it was held and who attended.

A woman has revealed her shock after a man took her on a 'surprise' first date - to his grandmother's funeral.

The anonymous singleton shared her story with her friend Raychel, from Leeds, who screengrabbed their hilarious Whatsapp conversation and posted it on Twitter, where it has since gone viral.

Revealing her dilemma the friend, who Raychel has saved in her phone as Bridget Jones, recounted how she'd asked her Tinder match where he was taking her, only to be told 'wear a black dress and I'll surprise you'.

Having initially found his approach 'romantic', her ardour quickly cooled when he picked her up and drove her to a crematorium (nơi hỏa táng, lò hỏa thiêu), and she realised she was at 'his nan's funeral'.

Moroccan woman is accused of (bị buộc tội) killing her boyfriend in the United Arab Emirates — then cooking and serving his remains in a traditional homemade dish, officials said.

The woman, whose identity wasn't released, allegedly wanted revenge because her boyfriend dumped (đổ rác, vứt bỏ, gạt bỏ; "đá") her after she financially supported him over the course of their seven-year relationship.

Prosecutors in Al-Ain emirate said the girlfriend killed the victim three months ago, but she wasn't arrested until his tooth (răng) was found inside her blender (máy xay).
