"For all intents and purposes" nghĩa là gì?

'For all intents and purposes' nghĩa là hoàn toàn gần như.

Ví dụ
The original Space Jam was, for all intents and purposes, a Nike-sponsored movie. The film was inspired by a Nike Super Bowl commercial starring Jordan and Bugs Bunny; the shoe giant houses Air Jordan, and also has a lifetime deal (lifetime, as in for life!) with James.

US National Security Adviser John Bolton has previously called the court "illegitimate" (không chính danh) and any prosecution (sự truy tố) unjust (không đúng, bất công). "We will not cooperate with the ICC. We will provide no assistance to the ICC, " Bolton said in September 2018. "We will let the ICC die on its own. After all, for all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us."

It’s worth noting that although Beresheet did enjoy considerable government support in this way, it’s a far cry from any other large-scale government-run mission, and can safely be considered “private” for all intents and purposes. The ~50-person team and $200 million budget are laughably small compared to practically any serious mission, let alone a lunar landing.

"Put up your dukes" nghĩa là gì?

'Put up one's dukes' nghĩa là giơ nắm đấm lên, vào thế chuẩn bị đánh nhau.

Ví dụ
Sound the bells and put up your dukes, because MTV Studios has announced that they're planning a revival of their stop-motion animated series CELEBRITY DEATHMATCH!

You can see the Philly crowd cheering from the floor below and the upper deck, and then you can put up your dukes, move around the ring, and start punching an opponent.

Before you put up your dukes to defend the honor of Omaha drivers, keep this in mind: The ranking has major limitations. For example, it's based on self-reported data.

Detach the Joy-Cons however, and you'll be able to use motion controls to aim and control the camera, rotate and inspect clues from various angles, and even put up your dukes and brawl.
