Rõ ràng là bất hợp pháp, kể cả ở Đồ Sơn

Qua cơn "phê" chỉ còn lại nỗi nhục ê chề,

uống rượu say, trần truồng đi lại, đái vào cửa tiệm và cảnh sát...
-----
The man, who has not been unidentified (chưa xác định danh tính), showed up naked  (trần truồng) outside a Circle K store in the 200 block of Main Street, shouting and trying to get in.

Staff inside managed to lock the doors to protect themselves and customers. The man is accused (buộc tội) of urinating (tiểu tiện) on the doors.

Police officers who were in the area moved in as the man aggressively (đầy khiêu khích, hống hách) walked toward two officers, yelling, and refusing commands to stop.

They said the man then tried to 'sling urine' (vẩy nước đái) on them.

Another officer came up from behind and got the suspect on the ground, at one point deploying mace (xịt hơi cay) on him.

Police filed several charges (cáo buộc) against the man as a John Doe but took him to the hospital first to be evaluated.

"A rebel without a cause" nghĩa là gì?

"A rebel without a cause" = làm loạn vô cớ. Ý chỉ một người phản kháng, nổi loạn, vùng lên chống lại các chuẩn mực, quy tắc xã hội hoặc quy định chính phủ mà không có bất kỳ mục tiêu/ mong muốn cụ thể. Có một bộ phim cùng tên là "Rebel Without A Cause" ra mắt năm 1955 tại Mỹ, với James Dean thủ vai chính. 

Ví dụ
If you like bad boys, you’ll love this anti-rules (chống lại quy tắc) rebel without a cause. Domri’s punk-rock toughness (cứng rắn) gels nicely with his affinity (yêu thích) for nature. Would go camping with him. 

My poor uncle always struck me as a rebel without a cause, disappearing (biến mất) for weeks on end, getting drunk and alienating (xa lánh) the family, and ending up in prison more times than I can count. I think he felt like he just didn't fit in (phù hợp), and didn't have the emotional tools to deal with that or to ask for help from anyone else. 

With his role of an angsty heartbroken (đau khổ) lover with a drinking problem, Shahid’s character in Kabir Singh reminds us of Tommy Singh from Udta Punjab. Releasing the teaser (đoạn video ngắn giới thiệu) of his film, Shahid had written on his Twitter handle, "I’m not a rebel without a cause. This is ME! #kabirsingh". Soon his wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor too, took to her Instagram handle (xử lý) and shared her excitement (phấn khích) on hubby’s next film. She had captioned her post as, ''Boom #whattawowow''.

"God willing and the creek don't rise" nghĩa là gì?

"God willing and the creek don't rise" có cụm từ "God willing" chỉ sự sẵn lòng giúp đỡ của Chúa, và từ "creek" (nhánh sông, sông con) nhắc đến thời điểm ngập lụt, cản trở đi lại. Cụm từ có nghĩa đơn giản là nếu như tất cả mọi việc đều suôn sẻ, thuận lợi. 

Ví dụ 
Tom: Will you be able to get the house painted before the cold weather sets in? 
Jane: Yes, God willing and the creek don't rise. 

"I’ve loved it for the last 16 years and I decided I wanted to open a business here,” Sexton said. “Hopefully I’ll grow old and retire here, God willing and the creek don’t rise too much more.” 

God willing and the creek don’t rise, I’ll spend the next four weeks taking a closer look at the modern tools and techniques hurricane forecasters (nhà dự báo) like me use to zero on risks (tránh rủi ro) at each of those ranges (phạm vi). 

As an EV advocate (người ủng hộ), I am excited to see the electric cars from Volkswagen that will be on sale in America beginning next year. When I pointed out the new VW television ad (quảng cáo) to my wife, that ID Buzz electric van got an emotional response from her. Call it a “Wow!” We can see ourselves parking one of those where the LEAF now sits in our garage some day, God willing and the creek don’t rise.
