Hoang mang chất lượng phòng khám tư nhân

(tỷ phú buôn kim cương) chết vì phẫu thuật 'làm to dương vật'... :D

-> tiền nhiều để làm gì?
-----

...Ehud Arye Laniado, 65, was at an unidentified (không xác định) private clinic (phòng khám tư) on the Avenue des Champs-Elysees in the French capital on Saturday when complications (biến chứng) during surgery (phẫu thuật) proved fatal (nguy hiểm đến tính mạng, nguy hiểm chết người). The experienced (dạn dày kinh nghiệm) diamond expert's heart attack (đau tim) happened when a substance (chất) was injected (bơm vào) into his penis (dương vật).

A friend of Mr Laniado's, who wished to remain anonymous (ẩn danh, giấu tên), said he was 'always focused on his appearance and how others perceived him'. According to Mr Laniado's friends, the only time he forgot about his lack of height (quên đi chiều cao khiêm tốn) was when he asked his accountant (kế toán) to read out (đọc) his bank statement (sao kê tài khoản ngân hàng), something which he did multiple times a day.

"Distant corner of the world" nghĩa là gì?

'Distant corner of the world' là một vùng xa xôi, hẻo lánh nào đó của thế giới.

Ví dụ
True power comes from even the smallest footpath (đường mòn) in the most distant corner of the world. This path is connected to key pieces of who you are and what you stand for (thể hiện) in the world. 

Politicians (chính trị gia) demand we respect the insular (người ở đảo) values that defined us in the past. But a major AMP/Stuff survey reveals Kiwis no longer value the 40-hour week, strong silent stoicism (chủ nghĩa khắc kỷ) and the security of distance. Instead, we are embracing changing values: we celebrate diversity (sự đa dạng), we profess kindness and – in our distant corner of the world – we are more outward-looking than ever before.

You know, people say that Gaza is in crisis (khủng hoảng) mode when there are three hours of electricity a day. But, hey, when there’s six hours of electricity a day, then that’s somehow acceptable (có thể chấp nhận được) or reasonable (hợp lý)? And we’re also not talking about a reality that is happening in some distant corner of the world; this is at Israel’s doorstep (ngưỡng cửa).

"Move up in the world" nghĩa là gì?

'Move up in the world' nghĩa là sự thăng tiến (công việc, địa vị xã hội, tài chính...), thành công hơn so với lúc trước.

Ví dụ
The erosion (suy tàn) of Germany’s postwar (sau chiến tranh) settlement — a strong welfare (phúc lợi) state, full-time employment, the opportunity to move up in the world — has created a populace (công dân) open to messages and movements previously banished (đưa đi) to the fringes (vùng ven).

Young wunderkinds (thần đồng) Sarpreet Singh and Liberato Cacace will surely move up in the world within a few years.

A former (cựu) Googler and Facebook exec (viết tắt của executive: quản lý) says your parents' career path is just about dead, and there's a better way to move up in the world.

"I don't want to just stay stagnant (trì trệ) and you know, depressed (chán nản), looking at the four walls of my room," Willis said. "I want to move up in the world even if you know it's going to be hard."

"It's a small world" nghĩa là gì?

'It's a small world' = trái đất tròn (dùng trong trường hợp gặp gỡ lại một người, hay sự kiện, tình huống ở một nơi không ngờ tới).

Ví dụ
I have to say that had these things happened in Washington, who can tell? They are accidents (tình cờ) and surprises. It's a small world. It happens that I was shopping late one night at Sutton Place Gourmet and somebody shouts my name. It was already past 8:00. I was not really interested in any socializing. I was tapped out from the day, but she was all excited to see me. Why? Her son Peter had seen me on TV. "Oh my gosh." Yes, it's true. Why? In the media world when the Hanssen case popped up, they tapped on experts to just make comments on things.

It's a small world even when you're a celebrity (người nổi tiếng). And on Thursday, Hollywood star Ben Affleck bumped into film producer Scott Stuber while on the school run in Los Angeles. The two dads greeted each other warmly and chatted for a few minutes before hugging and going their separate ways.

In 2014, Anu Duggal started Female Founders Fund, which she now runs with Sutian Dong, a venture capital (vốn mạo hiểm) fund (quỹ) that invests (đầu tư) solely (chủ yếu) in women-founded start-ups. It’s a small world with a lot of overlap: Ms. Blau gave Female Founders Fund one of its first checks, and several of the companies that participated in Wingable have had conversations with Backstage Capital and Female Founders Fund.
