"Come to aid" nghĩa là gì?

Kệ đi, cô ấy đang diễn trò thôi. Photo by  Brooke Cagle

"Come to (someone's) aid" = Cung cấp, hỗ trợ và giải cứu cho ai.

Ví dụ
Last week, Rhoda Abaja cried out for help and asked well-wishers to come to her aid as she was unable to send her daughter Lencer Anyumba to school.

Teams had battled 60mph winds, sleet, snow and rain in the teeth of the storm to come to his aid. The man was found with his two friends wrapped up in McCooks Bothy on the Ben Alder Estate.

Resilience (tính kiên cường, khả năng nhanh phục hồi), Johnson says, “is a normal way of life” in the Deep South. People living in these communities have lacked resources for generations. They repair their own property when it gets damaged instead of hiring others to do the work; they repurpose old materials instead of buying new ones. They don’t expect the government or NGOs to come to their aid.

"Come to fruition" nghĩa là gì?

"Come to fruition" = Dẫn đến sự khai hoa kết trái -> Dẫn đến sự thành công và trọn vẹn; diễn ra như mong đợi.

Ví dụ
The phase-one deal was first announced on December 13, signaling a phase-two agreement could come to fruition in a matter of weeks.

“Asking all of the key questions, the right how, why, and what, to potential manufacturing partners is critical to ensuring your vision and product come to fruition. We are excited to showcase this last step,” Imahara added.

Several media members believed that the Cardinals’ acquisition (sự giành được) of left-handed starter Matthew Liberatore was part of a much larger trade, and it looks like that may come to fruition. It’s a brilliant move on the Cardinals’ part if that’s their intent with the former Tampa Bay Rays’ top prospect. Morosi has indicated that the Rockies are interested in Dakota Hudson and would likely ask for at least one of the Cardinals’ top four prospects. And the thought of Paul Goldschmidt and Arenado in the same lineup for the next several years is sickening, to say the least.

"Come to heel" nghĩa là gì?

Đợi em với ná! Photo by  Alvan Nee

"Come to heel" = Lẽo đẽo theo sau chủ -> Tuân theo mọi quy định, làm theo điều lệnh.

Ví dụ
The Queen, Charles, and Harry’s brother Prince William have directed their staff to come up with solutions to the crisis “within days rather than weeks”. The Daily Express understands they have ruled out using money to apply pressure on Harry and Meghan to come to heel.

"We want to normalize (bình thường hóa) relations with the US, but we do not come to heel, we are not eager to hug anyone, kiss anywhere, any part of a body, we are just having a dialogue in a worthy manner. That is what it is based on. Not against Ukraine, not against Russia, not against Europe. Exactly on that”, - Lukashenko said.

Almost a year ago, more than 300 theatre professionals wrote a letter of complaint concerning the Abbey's policy of increased co-productions and a reduction in self-produced plays under the current artistic directorship (nhiệm kỳ giám đốc nghệ thuật). The result had been reduced opportunities in the profession, reduced pay and damage across the theatrical board. The artistic directorate of the Abbey appeared to come to heel, and undertook to "engage" with the profession, although the directors denied the accusations.

"Come to light" nghĩa là gì?

"Come to light" = Đưa ra ánh sáng -> Tiết lộ/phơi bày sự thật về điều gì.

Ví dụ
“As the matter will come to light and when we have evidence (bằng chứng) that our real estate agents and salespersons are doing this, definitely the board will take serious action.”

CC Sabathia was on the mound (ụ đất) for Game 7 of the 2017 ALCS at Houston’s Minute Maid Park, and the retired Yankees hurler is beginning to wonder what could have been — or should have been — if not for the Astros’ sign-stealing program that has come to light more than two years later.

The House on Wednesday will vote to send articles of impeachment (luận tội) to the Senate. This as new details come to light about the pressure campaign against the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. Will it amplify calls to allow new evidence in the upcoming Senate trial? In the final Democratic presidential debate before the Iowa caucuses, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) confronted doubts over a woman in the White House head on. And 18 months after he began his trade war with China, President Donald Trump is set to sign a partial truce (thỏa ước ngừng bắn). What's in it?

"Come to the fore" nghĩa là gì?

"Come to the fore" = Trở nên nổi bật, được chú ý; giữ địa vị lãnh đạo.

Ví dụ
The president delivered a characteristically bombastic (đầy khoa trương) speech in Milwaukee, touching on multiple foreign policy issues that have come to the fore in recent months.

The bigger question is how long sport, like Hollywood, can continue to hand-wave away the contradictions (sự mâu thuẫn) between its activities and its supposed ideals. While some aspects of the sport circus will always be globally itinerant (lưu động trên toàn cầu), the question of whether others really need to be should now come closer to the fore.

After President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's meeting with key leaders in the Libyan crisis, including Russian President Vladimir Putin and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, Turkey has come to the fore once again as a game changer in Middle Eastern politics. Turkey's diplomatic efforts produced a cease-fire at a time when Tripoli was about to fall into the hands of Gen. Khalifa Haftar. Turkey has mobilized many regional and global actors such as Algeria, Tunisia, Italy and Germany to take more initiative in the Libyan crisis.

"Come within a whisker of" nghĩa là gì?

Ngồi im chờ con mồi đến. Photo by  Nick Karvounis

"Come within a whisker (sợi tinh thể) of" = Sắp làm điều gì, gần đạt được điều gì hoặc sắp trải nghiệm việc gì.

Ví dụ
Anyone who has been through an experience in life where you’ve nearly died and come within a whisker of losing your life would surely tell you the same.

He took to Twitter to make his point about beards (bộ râu), or non-beards, and his message has been viewed by 120,000 people to date, and more than 2,000 people have signed a petition. The bald truth is that it is the school authorities who make the rules, and Carrick McClean may come within a whisker of more discipline (sự kỷ luật). He has shown great courage (sự can đảm) in challenging the authorities, and he will go far.

France were hosts and favourites for the 1984 European Championship, a team of supreme talent led by one of the best of his generation, the elegant and prolific Michel Platini. It was a side that had come within a whisker of the World Cup final two years previously, delighting fans and neutrals alike with their flair (sự tinh, thấy ngay cái tốt) and panache (phô trương). With the majestic (oai vệ, huy hoàng) midfield of Platini, Jean Tigana, Alain Giresse and Luis Fernández, this was a team about to reach their pinnacle (đỉnh cao nhất), aiming to seize their destiny in their home tournament.

"Come within range" nghĩa là gì?

Lính cool ngầu. Photo by Maxim Potkin

"Come within range" = Đến trong tầm đạn/phạm vi -> Di chuyển gần tới ai/cái gì để được thấy hoặc nghe.

Ví dụ
Tile enabled laptops will also be added into the Tile ‘crowd’ feature, which allows other Tile users to send an anonymous update with the location to the item’s owner when they come within range.

Creating a coverage area (vùng phủ sóng) similar to Wi-Fi, Powercast's RF wireless power transmitters (phát tín hiệu) automatically power enabled products that come within range for smart, carefree wireless charging. Charging range and rate depend on a device's power consumption; power-hungry products charge best at close range, while the transmitters can power low-power devices such as sensors up to 80 feet (24 meters).

The company’s Ring doorbells can view and record not only visitors to a home’s front porch but passersby on the street as well. Homeowners have the option to share these recordings with local law enforcement agencies — though strangers who unwittingly (không chủ tâm, không biết đến) come within range don’t have the chance to opt out. Amazon even encourages neighbors to mutually share their Ring videos in a sort of neighborhood watch system through a downloadable app.

"Come out of the woodwork" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Dominik Scythe

"Come out of the woodwork (nghề mộc)" = Đến/xuất hiện một cách bất thình lình, đến từ nơi không ai ngờ tới; thường là ai đó xuất hiện một cách bất ngờ và nói ý kiến của mình về việc gì hoặc để tận dụng tình huống nào đó.

Ví dụ
It always baffles (cản trở) me when people come out of the woodwork to protest us making more — this money doesn't come from their pocket.

"We have a lot of friends who were staff there, whether it be staff, security and servers," says McCormick. "All of these people are out of a job. Because they are friends of ours, it hits home." McCormick adds that the London music scene always shows up in times of need. "Musicians come out of the woodwork and raise a ton of cash, that's how we give back."

These people seem to have come out of the woodwork. I have looked at the past content history of many of them and there was low engagement in recent times. This change is a positive sign of the power of LinkedIn and the opportunity it promises. Inactive members (thành viên không hoạt động) are now robustly adding to the platform to influence and raise conversations.

One of Kissinger's insecurities as an adult was his feeling, sometimes half-confessed through  mordant  humor (nửa đùa nửa thật thú nhận), that he would not fit in if he was too closely identified with his religion. Only partly in jest, he grumbled (lầm bầm) that too much reporting about his family background could "bring every anti-Semite (bài do thái) out of the woodwork" to attack him.

"Come up trumps" nghĩa là gì?

"Come up trumps" = Thành công ngoài mong đợi, dẫn đến kết quả tốt đẹp dù đang đối mặt với nhiều bất lợi/thách thức.

Ví dụ
With Santo's record against top teams and this Wolves' side's potential, it would be no surprise to see them come up trumps against this United side again and this price is well worth taking, with the insurance of getting your stake back in the event of a draw in 90 minutes.

"Everyone takes it very seriously and since the team began to sample success several years ago the enthusiasm has just mushroomed to an unbelievable extent. We are all keeping our fingers crossed that the team can come up trumps on Sunday although we recognise they will be playing very good opponents (đối thủ)."

Of concern, though, is the batting of the captain. His leadership thus far has been good, and field placements, bowling changes and his overall tactics as a captain has been commendable (đáng khen ngợi); however, as a batsman, more is expected. He has chosen to play the role of a senior lower-order batsman, meaning he needs to up the tempo if needed or settle in and build an innings where required. Playing this role, though, means he needs to get the team over the line. It's a challenge, but it's one he needs to face head on and come up trumps.

"Come within earshot" nghĩa là gì?

Lắng nghe tiếng lòng biển cả. Photo by  Yoann Boyer

"Come within earshot" = Đến gần trong tầm nghe -> Di chuyển gần để nghe được chuyện người ta đang nói hoặc làm.

Ví dụ
“WELCOME to Sai Khao. Welcome to Sai Khao. Have a seat. Food will be ready soon,” quips Nonphan Promsuk excitedly as soon as I come within earshot. There’s a delicious smell wafting in the air as I make my way through the spacious open-sided zinc-roofed bulding.

"Where have you been? I’ve been waiting for ages. Fortunately, this wonderful gentleman volunteered to keep me company," my mother says the moment I come within earshot. Introduced to Tan Ah Boy, I learn that the former fisherman from Kuala Kedah is the oldest resident in the nursing home.

Inside the park, opposing rows of speakers line a path that connects the area’s large central fountain (suối nước) to the nearby municipal (thuộc thị xã) building. As visitors come within earshot, they’ll hear the collective breaths–or attempts at it–from a few dozen people of all ages, fitness levels, and neighborhoods. The goal is to create what Brooklyn-based artist Sari Carel calls a “canopy (mái che, vòm) of breathing”.

"Come up with the goods" nghĩa là gì?

"Come up with the goods" = Hoàn thành sứ mạng, làm đúng những gì đã hứa, làm được cái được mong đợi và yêu cầu ở bạn.

Ví dụ
2020 has already come up with the goods and we’re barely two weeks into it. Yep, it’s here and happening – Mandy Moore has announced her first album in well over ten years. Oh and she’s just dropped a single too. The planet might be going to hell in a handbasket but at least we’ve got the return of Mandy Moore (!!!) to look forward to in the next couple of months.

That’s not to say Coutinho should be viewed as a direct replacement for the waylaid Gnabry. Even if O Magico has come up with the goods as a right winger in big games for Barcelona and former employers Liverpool - scoring against the likes of Valencia and Manchester City respectively - and was introduced in Gnabry’s stead on the right-hand side of the attack in Bayern’s 4-0 Klassiker win over Borussia Dortmund, to pigeon-hole him would be a great disservice (sự chơi khăm, báo hại). What use is a magician if he’s not allowed to think outside of the box?

If you want some great quality and fashionable outerwear, The North Face offers one of the widest and most reasonably priced selections out there. The brand’s technical fabrics (kết cấu) really stand up to scrutiny (kiểm tra kỹ) and its coats are reliably warm and dry while comparably-priced offerings from the high street might not be. Plus, they are fashionable and even a status symbol in some parts of the world, such as South Korea (apparently). Whether you’re looking for a great waterproof for less than £100 or a reasonably-priced (giá cả hợp lý) synthetic  (tổng hợp, nhân tạo) down coat, The North Face will come up with the goods.

"Come up to standards" nghĩa là gì?

"Come up to standards" = Đạt tiêu chuẩn -> Cải thiện ai/cái gì để đáp ứng được kỳ vọng và yêu cầu.

Ví dụ
A certain small group of employees was unwilling to come up to standards, and they had to be let go or the state would have come in and shut down the program, Shatzer said.

“It’s going to go through some substantial improvements to come up to standards with the City-County Health Department,” said Michael Stone, a planner with the Cascade County Planning Department.

“Educationally, we are going to look at whether those buildings can be retrofitted to come up to standards, especially to safety and green technology — or maybe do nothing (to them),” Superintendent Robert Mehalick said.

"Come up smelling of roses" nghĩa là gì?

"Come up smelling of roses" = Vượt lên trên tất cả mà vẫn giữ được mùi thơm hoa hồng -> Ý là bạn thoát khỏi được chuyện rắc rối/bê bối mà vẫn giữ được danh tiếng tốt cho mình, không bị hề hấn gì và càng mạnh mẽ và tốt hơn trước.

Ví dụ
Compact wash areas come with their own set of challenges, but with the right guidance and specification there are enough solutions out there for operators to ensure their businesses come up smelling of roses.

A pair of Dunedin teens have come up smelling of roses after winning a regional business competition. Otago Boys High School pupils Ben Mason (18) and Thomas Geary (17), along with Jackson Toms and Max Brown, won the Otago regional finals of the Young Enterprise Scheme last night with their business Oak Cologne.

To a degree, Chelsea club legend Frank Lampard can still come up smelling of roses if his return as Blues manager doesn't go swimmingly. Most managers who have left the west London club have made a tidy sum with their severance (cắt rời, phân ly) package. And unless it goes drastically wrong, the former midfielder can probably afford one failure on his CV. Especially at Chelsea where you're essentially on a hiding to nothing - additionally when you take current circumstances into account.

"Come up roses" nghĩa là gì?

"Come up roses" = Hương hoa hồng bay tới -> Dẫn đến kết quả tốt đẹp hoặc thành công ngoài sức mong đợi, đặc biệt khi đối mặt với sự ngờ vực và khó khăn.

Ví dụ
The decision to trade for Michael Bennett ahead of the NFL deadline has immediately come up roses for the Dallas Cowboys, and was quite the fancy feast for the veteran pass rusher in his debut against the catty New York Giants. The team landed the 33-year-old defensive lineman from the New England Patriots in exchange for a 2020 conditional late-round pick, and the plan from the outset was to throw him into the fray early and often.

Even when your company name is culturally synonymous (đồng nghĩa) with your product -- think Kleenex, Google, or Xerox -- your business may not always come up roses. The recreational vehicle market, for example, has its fair share of ups and downs. But it was looking up for Winnebago (NYSE:WGO) last quarter, thanks in large measure to its acquisition (sự thu được) of Grand Design RV a few years ago and its Chris-Craft purchase more recently.

“I thought they were the most exciting watch in baseball from start to finish. That’s what I thought. Every night I found myself constantly clicking on. Anybody in the lineup can hurt you. (General manager Alex Anthopoulos) has done a great job of creating a roster that kind of has something for everybody. ... The signing of Dallas Keuchel, which you didn’t know how that was going to go, has come up roses. Same thing with Josh Donaldson.”

"Come up from behind" nghĩa là gì?

"Come up from behind" = Lội ngược dòng -> Cải thiện một tình huống hoặc vị thế trước ai/cái gì.

Ví dụ
"I enjoy the game I just enjoy watching the little schools come up from behind and be a big threat against the big guys," said Reed.

The Mets were hoping to come up from behind at the end of the season, and although the team has been playing meaningful September baseball, it was not enough to surpass the red-hot Brewers.

When she went full speed into the right turn, she spotted a white jersey come up from behind. That competitor's front tire hit her back wheel, taking her down. Her head hit the ground and she heard a click "and I knew I broke the helmet at that point," she said. "My first reaction was, 'I couldn't breathe.'" The impact literally knocked the wind out of her. "I just had to catch my breath, but it wouldn't come."

"Come to the job with" nghĩa là gì?

Phận làm tài xế. Photo by redcharlie

"Come to the job with" = Đến với công việc với kỹ năng làm việc hoặc thái độ làm việc như thế nào.

Ví dụ
Trustees will have to come to the job with a clean record (no judgments against them ) and without the potential for conflicts of interest.

Now, Macgregor might be in the running to become one of them. He has written five books on military strategy (chiến lược quân sự) and could come to the job with a more restrained U.S. policy than some of Trump’s other close advisers — including Bolton.

When you hire someone for a job, you should understand their personality. Do they come to the job with the positive attitude you want your customers to experience? Or do they have to “fake it”? The old cliché of “hire for attitude and train for skill” comes to mind, but I think it’s more than that. You do want to have someone with the right attitude, but more importantly, they need to understand and fit in with the culture and personality of your organization.

Đừng đưa con đi triển lãm xe hơi

cặp vợ chồng tq phải nộp phạt 10.000 usd vì con gái 3 tuổi lấy đá rạch xước 10 oto mới,

The man and his wife and daughter were with a friend who was car shopping at a showroom in Guilin in November when the three-year-old girl slipped away and got into a little bit of mischief.

She reportedly found a rock and used it to scratch 10 of the luxury automobiles parked in the store, one worth over $80,000, before someone noticed what she was doing.

the dealer sued the customer for the equivalent of $28,000, arguing that the damage means that the cars can no longer be legally be sold as new, but settled the case for $10,000.

"Come to the boil" nghĩa là gì?

Đừng giỡn với nhỏ nữa. Photo by  Patrick Fore

"Come to the boil" = Bắt đầu sôi -> Rất tức giận, cái gì đạt tới đỉnh điểm; trở nên rất mạnh mẽ và hiệu quả.

Ví dụ
Young gun Jacob Italiano believes Australia are simmering (trạng thái nén lại, đang sôi) nicely at the AFC U-23 Championship in Thailand, and are on course to come to the boil in the knock-out phase.

They have come to the boil in recent weeks. Earlier this month, the US suspended Indian trade privileges from its Generalized System of Preferences (GSP), a 43-year-old program which gives US market access to less developed economies. India had been the biggest beneficiary (người hưởng lợi) of the scheme.

It took three minutes for nine months of simmering frustration to come to the boil. Marseille's fans had long been unhappy with their team's performances, but for the most part they had continued to show their support. There were still banners and chants attacking the club's board and urging coach Rudi Garcia to step down (this is Marseille, after all), but in the main, the fans had stood behind the team.

"Pushing up the daisies" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: Joy Real on Unsplash

"Pushing up the daisies" -> nghĩa là đã chết.

Ví dụ
Not for me, you know. It’s for the widow woman on her retirement (nghỉ hưu). I shall be pushing up the daisies but she will be still on the go. She can toddle (chập chững) down to the village shops with her basket. And if they need her for anything in the Lords, they can send a car.

We do talk about death, not her actual death but the aftermath (hậu quả). It’s a rather academic (chỉ có giá trị lý thuyết) discussion. She wants to be buried not cremated (hỏa táng). The farmer’s daughter likes the idea of literally pushing up the daisies.

Close friends Ronin and Black Widow slug it out to be the one who self-sacrifices for the Soul Stone. In the end it's Natasha who falls to her death. Which leaves us with a burning question: What's happening with the solo Black Widow movie? I mean, it has a director and a cast but it'll be a pretty short movie if the lead character is pushing up the daisies.
