Google dứt áo Huawei

theo hiệu triệu của tt trump thôi, cấm hoa vỹ update android

Alphabet Inc's Google has suspended business with Huawei that requires the transfer of hardware and software products except those covered by open source licenses, a source close to the matter told Reuters on Sunday, in a blow to the Chinese technology company that the US government has sought to blacklist (danh sách đen) around the world.

Huawei Technologies Co Ltd will immediately (ngay lập tức) lose access  (mất quyền truy cập) to updates to the Android operating system (hệ thống điều hành), and the next version (phiên bản tiếp theo) of its smartphones outside of China will also lose access to popular applications and services including the Google Play Store and Gmail app.

"Breathe a word" nghĩa là gì?

'Breathe a word' là thở ra một từ nào -> từ này thường dùng khi ai đó nói ra một bí mật (đôi khi dùng trong trường hợp đe dọa ai đó 'không được hé răng nói bất kì điều gì')

Ví dụ
Biden didn’t breathe a word about the 21 other Democrats (đảng viên Đảng Dân chủ) competing for the job he wants. The front-runner (người có được ưu thế) focused his criticism (chỉ trích) on Trump, condemning (lên án) the president as an existential threat (mối đe dọa) to democracy.

She said: 'I remember being told before my first day at my new school that I couldn't breathe a word about how my parents had died – apparently even the headteacher (hiệu trưởng) was hesitant (do dự) about giving me a place – because otherwise we would all have been ostracised (tẩy chay).

CEO Ronojoy Dutta wrote to the airline’s employees trying to assuage (làm dịu) any concerns (quan ngại, lo lắng) or uncertainties but did not breathe a word debunking (lật tẩy) the alleged (được cho là) fallout (không mong muốn).

"Fountain of youth" nghĩa là gì?

'Fountain of youth' có từ 'fountain' là suối nước, nguồn -> cụm từ này hiểu nôm là suối nguồn tuổi trẻ, là những gì người ta tin/cho là có thể kéo dài được tuổi trẻ, sức khỏe của mình.

Ví dụ
Oatmeal (yến mạch), red wine (rượu vang) and a sense of humor (hài hước, vui vẻ). Are they the secret (bí mật) to unlocking the fountain of youth?

Finding the fountain of youth is not easy, but an 88-year old South Florida man says if you look hard enough, you can find it and he says he did in Hialeah. Evelio Viciedo never misses a domino game, never misses his walks and has never missed his late night security checks (kiểm tra an ninh).

"Do justice to" nghĩa là gì?

'Do justice to' nghĩa là miêu tả, cho thấy ai/điều gì một cách chính xác.

Ví dụ
Apple doesn't tend to do justice to the impressive spec sheets on some of its MacBooks.

Do you still think that grades do justice to student's knowledge? We can say that this conclusion is just in the past.

It has wasted opportunities, squandered goodwill and failed to do justice to its characters or its actors. But the finale just about delivered.

No network graph can do justice to the rich complexity of human interactions, but we sometimes know enough to differentiate between the directions of edges (e.g. A commands B, but not vice versa), their modes (e.g. A knows B but sleeps with C), and their weights (e.g. A occasionally meets B but sees C every day).
