"Be a happy camper" nghĩa là trong trạng thái dễ chịu và tinh thần sảng khoái.

Ví dụ
While he may privately be pulling for one team over the other, it's safe to say that Montana will ultimately be a happy camper regardless of Super Bowl LIV's final outcome.

I suspect things will go south with Ramsey in time, but I’m guessing he’d be a happy camper for the next few years after he signs a contract extension (gia hạn hợp đồng) that might make him the highest-paid corner in the league, somewhere in the neighborhood of $15.5 or $16 million a year.

Halle Berry is a staple in the Black community. The ageless phenomenon has won the world over with talents, undeniable beauty, and activism. Halle makes the reality of aging less painful. I mean, if I were guaranteed to look like her at the age of 53, I’d be a happy camper. Beyond her toned body you’ll find flawless (không tì vết) skin that really should be studied. She helps lead the pack of women in the anti-aging group.

"A few fries short of a Happy Meal" nghĩa là gì?

"A few fries short of a Happy Meal" = một vài miếng khoai tây chiên còn sót lại của Bữa ăn Hạnh phúc -> cụm từ này nghĩa là người ngu ngốc hoặc bị tâm thần.

Ví dụ
It’s a well-known fact that sportswriters (phóng viên thể thao) are usually a few fries short of a Happy Meal, but now and again, they even can recognize a telltale sign.

Writing for The Los Angeles Times in June, conservative columnist Jonah Goldberg joked that the president was, “a few fries short of a Happy Meal,” and questioned whether the White House nurse had swapped Trump’s medications with M&Ms.

Where Gideon was silent but in a smart, pantomime-oriented way, Hei Hei is the polar opposite. To call this bug-eyed rooster bird-brained is a bit too high of complement. He might be a few fries short of a Happy Meal, but Moana still loves him. We can't really blame her.

"Top-flight" nghĩa là gì?

"Top-flight" nghĩa là thuộc tầm cỡ hàng đầu; ở thứ hạng cao nhất.

Ví dụ
As is the case for tickets, top-flight clubs differ in the amounts they charge for snacks and beverages.

Liverpool’s relentless (thường xuyên) march towards the Premier League title has seen them make top-flight history by holding a 22-point lead at the top of the table as a matchday in England comes to a close.

If the Bills don’t land a top-flight receiver in free agency or in the draft, the club could risk stalling Josh Allen’s progression going into his third season as the club’s franchise quarterback, and that’s a risk not worth taking.

He made his debut the following year at the Malboro Music Festival which then led to major engagements with top-flight orchestras (ban nhạc) and conductors like the Cleveland and George Szell and the Philadelphia and Eugene Ormandy.

"Put you down for" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Freddy Castro

"Put (one) down for" = Ghi chú, đánh dấu hoặc lưu ý sự cam kết của ai cho hoạt động/công việc nào đó.

Ví dụ
”I don't know -- put me down for a five." A golfer teed up his ball on the first tee, took a mighty swing and hit his ball into a clump of trees.

This Colorado State game is one Arkansas can’t lose, and the switch to Nick Starkel assures that they won’t. We’ve expected big things from the Arkansas ground game, but this time, it’s going to be a shoot-out. Put us down for a 42-35 kind of game, with Starkel throwing for 300 yards and Arkansas getting it done.

The Orange are down, relative to their own historical standards, which is disappointing given that they're one of the biggest brands in the sport. But Syracuse is still a top-55 KenPom team, one that's 5-1 in its past six games. And this is still the Carrier Dome. So while I don't believe Syracuse will win, put me down for Jim Boeheim and the points. Pick: Syracuse +6.5 (Gary Parrish).

"Put back on heels" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Saeed Siddiqui

"Put/set (one) back on (one's) heels" = Khiến ai phải quay lại bằng gót chân -> Làm cho ai vô cùng ngạc nhiên, sửng sốt và bất ổn.

Ví dụ
“It kind of just put me back on my heels a little,” Ali recalls. “I thought, 'You have to work harder. You have to try harder. You have to become better than everyone else.' I had a chip on my shoulder.”

“The expectations suddenly have risen through the roof for the local MP. So I think that alone will put him back on his heels a bit. Because now he is going to have to produce results that we believe we would have produced,” said Pupatello.

Shortly after Jenny Niemann launched her office furniture dealership last year, a branding consultant asked her a question that put her back on her heels. Is the brand male or female? “That one really caught me by surprise,” said Niemann, CEO of Chicago-based Forward Space, a dealer for office furniture maker Steelcase.

"Lay off the bottle" nghĩa là gì?

Bỏ đi mà làm người. Photo by: Chris Benson on Unsplash

"Lay off the bottle" = đặt chai (rượu) xuống -> nghĩa là dừng uống rượu, tạm thời hoặc dừng hẳn, nhất là sau khoảng thời gian 'rượu chè bê tha' (triền miên, lâu).

Ví dụ:
Whilst it's always nice to see Flair still doings things for WWE, perhaps (có lẽ) he needs to lay off the bottle just a tad before he picks up a microphone!

While he barely got through school, he did well enough on standardized (tiêu chuẩn hóa) tests to get into Florida State University in 1958. He flunked out (bị đuổi học) when he couldn’t lay off the bottle.

Obviously, there are plenty of great, valid reasons to lay off the bottle, especially if you think you may have an alcohol addiction
But hopefully, seeing these crazy physical transformations will inspire (truyền cảm hứng) a few people looking to quit drinking to finally try it.

"Put down" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Rowan Chestnut

"Put (one/an animal) down" = Gục xuống -> Lăng mạ, sỉ nhục hoặc giết chết ai/con vật.

Ví dụ
"If you can't have a dog from us we're not saying you shouldn't have a dog. Instead save a dog from places where dogs are put down. "We've had dogs here for 12 to 14 years as they're not suitable for re-homing, but we never put a dog down."

But wasn't this choking adoration too much? "She never humiliated (lăng mạ) him in public or put him down at home, as people said. But sometimes she pushed him away, as she was suffocated (bóp nghẹt) by him. I could understand why she had not wanted to marry him. He trapped her, no question."

The vet determined the owner failed to provide veterinary (thuộc thú y) treatment for the dog’s wound which caused 'serious illness, infection and disablement'. They were forced to put him down because it would be too cruel (độc ác, tàn bạo) to keep him alive. Appearing at Liverpool Local Court on January 17, the 56-year-old was sentenced to a 12-month community corrections order.

"Put to death" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Eddi Aguirre

"Put (one) to death" = Đặt ai vào chỗ chết -> Xử tử/giết ai.

Ví dụ
Tharpe was sentenced to death three months after his conviction. In his appeals, he did not deny killing Freeman but sought a stay of execution based in part on racist comments from a juror (ban hội thẩm) who voted to put him to death.

Based on information received from sources, it has been learned that the younger sister of the deceased girl has told the police that Ramu, who lives in her neighborhood, put kerosene oil (dầu lửa) on her elder sister and set her on fire has put her to death. Innocent said that the accused had executed the incident in front of his eyes.

In Arkansas, new evidence has emerged bolstering (ủng hộ, giúp đỡ) the claims of Ledell Lee, a condemned prisoner who was put to death in April 2017 even as he professed his innocence (sự vô tội). A Freedom of Information lawsuit filed on behalf of Lee’s sister by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Innocence Project argues no physical evidence directly tied Lee to the 1993 murder for which he was convicted, and casts serious doubts on the claims of forensics experts (các chuyên gia về giám định pháp y) who testified at the trial.

"Not know where to put myself" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Hieu Vu Minh

"Not know where to put (oneself)" = Không biết chui vào đâu -> Bạn đang cảm thấy vô cùng kỳ quái, ngại ngùng, xấu hổ, không thoải mái và khó xử.

Ví dụ
"It's a surreal (kỳ quái, kỳ dị) moment," Kim said as he accepted the prize. "I know I'm not a heavyweight as other experienced nominees for the excellence award and that the viewers have fewer expectations of me. I don't know where to put myself to receive such an honorable prize."

According to Giancarlo Giammetti, Valentino Garavani’s business partner of almost 60 years, Valentino’s father so encouraged his son to become a tenor that, even now, Valentino is liable to burst into song when the mood strikes. ‘It is very embarrassing,’ says Giammetti. ‘Frankly, I don’t know where to put myself.’

At that time, in Quebec City, Johanne’s father father fell out a chair, broke his pelvis (khung xương chậu) and hit his head. He was in bad shape. Johanne had to decide whether to leave her struggling daughter in Toronto or head to Quebec. “It was tormenting, you don’t know where to put yourself,” she says. “Then I thought what my dad would tell me if he was able to speak — he would have said: ‘You have to stay with your girl’ as he would have done with his girl.”

"Wouldn't put it past" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Jeremy Bishop

"Wouldn't put (something) past (somebody)" = Khi bạn đã tin/biết rằng ai đó làm điều xấu, không đứng đắn hoặc cấm kỵ nên bạn không ngạc nhiên lắm vì hành động đó của họ.

Ví dụ
Then again, Nancy Drew has diverted expectations on more than one occasion in the past, so I wouldn’t put it past them to do so again. Here’s to hoping Bess and Lisbeth continue to have a healthy and honest relationship.

"It doesn't matter. It's over. It doesn't matter," said Shannon through tears. "I wouldn't put it past him." That season, Shannon struggled to take off her wedding ring and accept her new life as a single mother. Bravo cameras captured several emotional meltdowns (tuôn trào cảm xúc) stemming from the stresses of her divorce (cuộc ly dị), including self-loathing over her weight gain.

I still remember sitting by his bedside in our beach bungalow on Ko Lanta,Thailand, saying goodbye to my daughter and our friends, who were taking her snorkeling because I couldn’t leave him while he was burning up. She’s accused him of doing this on purpose and I wouldn’t put it past him, but — unless he’s one of those gurus who can raise his body temperature at will — I don’t see how he managed it.

"Hard put to do" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Pablo Orcaray

"Hard put to (do something)" = Khó khăn để làm/hoàn thành việc gì, nhất là việc có vẻ không có khả năng làm được.

Ví dụ
It is not exactly memorable movie-making, but if you are after big-time adventure scaled to a human dimension (khối lượng, kích cỡ), you would be hard-put to do any better.

Ten years ago, a property manager could satisfy investors “by just managing sticks and bricks,” he says. “Today, clearly the expectation has shifted to include a mastery (ưu thế, tính thông thạo) of real estate (bất động sản) as an investment. Without that understanding, the property manager is hard put to do his or her job.”

Many other SUCs have implemented the no tuition collection policy, but Tan said that they are still hard put to do the same thing in the UP system. He admits that the government is still unclear about its policy on free education, especially regarding the eligibility (đủ tư cách, tính thích hợp) of the students to avail (giúp ích, có lợi) of free tuition (miễn học phí). He said there are various interpretation of the policy, ranging from tuition subsidy (tiền trợ cấp học phí), no tuition collection, and no tuition increase.

"Put into reverse" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Robert Eklund

"Put/go (something) into reverse" = Khiến một việc/cái gì xảy ra theo hướng ngược lại/trái ngược lại.

Ví dụ
BIG-HEARTED staff at a Stourbridge car retailer have put the traditional December Advent calendar into reverse this year. Instead of receiving chocolate from a calendar in the run-up to Christmas - staff at Paul Rigby Stourbridge have been collecting donations for the Black Country Foodbank.

To test this hypothesis (giả thuyết), the team let the cuttlefish get hungry, then placed them in the tank with the video projected on one wall. The first cuttlefish (con mực) spied the “shrimp,” and very clearly put itself into reverse, backing up a bit before shooting its tentacles (tua cảm) at the mirage (ảo ảnh, ảo tưởng).

She then put the car in reverse and drove away. The trooper smashed the window and tried to grab the steering wheel to prevent her from leaving, but she sped away, leading him on a chase south down swanky (có xu hướng huênh hoang, phô trương) Ocean Drive toward Mar-a-Lago, 3 miles (4.8 kilometers) miles away, at speeds in excess of 70 mph (113 kph).

"Put her back up" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Robert Eklund

"Put (one's) back up" = Làm cho ai phát cáu, nổi giận.

Ví dụ
YOU can see why Ed Balls has sidestepped and soft-shoe-shuffled out of politics. In divided times that demand picking teams — the bottom line being ‘if you’re not with us, you’re against us’ — the ex-Strictly contestant is a master at seeing both sides of the argument. You wonder what it would take to truly put his back up.

There was no question on either side as to whether David Kobak, 77, fatally shot Frederick Loftus, 59, on Aug. 25, 2017. However, the defense presented a picture of two drunken men whose sudden quarrel (cuộc cãi lộn) led to one of their deaths, while the prosecution painted a picture of an individual who calmly and collectedly chose to shoot his friend after the friend said something to put his back up.

You can control anger by changing how you handle angering situations and what you say to yourself under your breath when you feel you have been wronged. No one can put your back up (or make you feel any emotion) unless you let them. You get angry because you say angering things to yourself (“That S.O.B., I’ll show him he can’t talk to me that way!) So all anger is really self-anger, and therein lies the potential we have to control it. We may not be able to keep people from doing stupid or angering things, but we can control how we respond to them.

"Be put upon" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  JJ Jordan

"Be put upon" = Phải chịu gánh nặng, bắt làm quá sức, chịu nộp thuế hoặc bị làm ngơ/bỏ mặc.

Ví dụ
"Could Irish Rail be put upon to pay more of it?" The bridge has been a major concern for residents for years.

“A student may be having a condition that the school doesn’t know about, so this just makes sure that we know everything that’s going on with students and make sure they’re able to handle the physical rigor (rùng mình) that’s going to be put upon them,” said Assistant Superintendent at River Road Independent School District, Andy Nies.

At the forensic commission's (ủy ban xét nghiệm pháp y) September meeting, Fitzpatrick warned the panel that crime lab directors are "telling me now that they simply cannot do their job based upon the requirements that are going to be put upon them. ... We're almost putting them in a position where people are going to try to cut corners … just because they can’t get it done."

"Be put to rest" nghĩa là gì?

"Be put to rest" = Được đặt ở nơi yên nghỉ -> Được chôn cất sau khi chết; được giải quyết/chấm dứt vấn đề gì.

Ví dụ
It’s officially the second full week of the Senate impeachment trial, and that could mean long-gestating questions about calling additional witnesses and the admission of new documents will finally be put to rest.

A Newberry County teenager will be put to rest today after a fatal crash (tai nạn, tai họa) last week. The funeral service (dịch vụ mai táng) for Peyton Reppart, 16, will be at the Central United Methodist Church on College Street at 4 p.m.

Speaking to the media, Raut said, "BJP has withdrawn the book and apologised for it, so I think the matter should be put to rest. This had to happen as people came on roads to oppose the book. This was not a political matter (vấn đề chính trị) for us, this was a matter of honour and pride of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Maharashtra."

"Be put out to grass" nghĩa là gì?

"Be put out to grass" = Cho ai ra rìa, cho ai về vườn -> Ép ai từ chức, nghỉ hưu hoặc xuống làm vị trí cấp dưới.

Ví dụ
LABOUR has come under attack for being “self-serving” and abandoning its “working class support” with its general election plan, with one opposition MEP raging the party needs to be “put out to grass”.

"I will be doing a bit of racing and taking stock, but I don't want to be put out to grass. I am still fairly active and my passion is for the City of York and Yorkshire, if anything comes along I can help with I will be more than happy to do so."

Time is on Roger Federer’s side. At the age of 37, that might sound like a ludicrous (buồn cười, lố bịch) suggestion, but there is no narrative to believe his powers of persuasion (sự thuyết phục) are suddenly about to be put out to grass. Certainly not this summer. And certainly not at Wimbledon.

"Short on looks" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  silvia trigo

"Short on looks" = Nhìn thô kệch, giản dị, không hấp dẫn và không có thẩm mỹ.

Ví dụ
Cardi B wasn’t short on looks during the New York Fashion Week spring ’18 shows, arguably the turning point where she emerged as a style star. The all-black Christian Siriano look set off by her platinum bob (kiểu búi tóc bạch kim) was a showstopper (tiết mục được khán giả vỗ tay tán thưởng rất lâu).

It’s as easy as pie. Download the picture-postcard app, sign up with your credentials (giấy ủy nhiệm), and wow; you are good to send your first postcard. The delivery of the first postcard is on the house from the company’s side.But wait, you need to have a picture to send and that picture can be from your Facebook account, Instagram account, or even your gallery picture will work unless it is not short on looks.

The all-new Range Rover Velar was supposed to fill the white space between the Range Rover Sport and the little Range Rover Evoque—a gap that has plagued Land Rover Range Rover since the first Range Rover rolled off the Solihull, England, assembly line just five months before the Beatles released Let It Be. Whether filling that white space is what the Velar's goal should be, it has set a new standard for beauty in a class of cars desperately short on looks.

Bí mật chôn giấu

những thiên thần trong địa ngục: các người mẫu của Victoria’s Secret tố cáo Ed Razek (nhiều thập kỷ là giám đốc marketing của L Brands, công ty mẹ của Victoria’s Secret) lạm dụng tình dục: cố tình hôn người mẫu, yêu cầu các người mẫu ngồi lên đùi, sờ háng người mẫu, chụp ảnh khỏa thân (không trả tiền)...

Victoria’s Secret defined femininity for millions of women. Its catalog and fashion shows were popular touchstones (đá thử (hợp kim) bằng cách rạch lên; tiêu chuẩn). For models (người mẫu), landing a spot as an “Angel” all but guaranteed international stardom (vị trí ngôi sao).

But inside the company, two powerful men presided over an entrenched ((quân sự) đào hào xung quanh (thành phố, cứ điểm...); cố thủ) culture (văn hóa) of misogyny (chán ghét đàn bà), bullying (bắt nạt, đe dọa) and harassment (quấy rối)...

Ed Razek, for decades one of the top executives at L Brands, the parent company of Victoria’s Secret, was the subject of repeated complaints (tố cáo, khiếu nại, phàn nàn) about inappropriate conduct (hành vi không đứng đắn/không đúng chuẩn mực). He tried to kiss models. He asked them to sit on his lap. He touched one’s crotch (háng) ahead of the 2018 Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

Executives said they had alerted Leslie Wexner, the billionaire founder and chief executive of L Brands, about his deputy’s pattern of behavior. Some women who complained faced  (đối mặt với) retaliation (trả đũa). 

"You look like a million" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Aziz Acharki

"You look like a million (bucks)" = Bạn trông như tờ một triệu đô -> Trông bạn rất tuyệt vời.

Ví dụ
A “backhanded compliment” (lời khen châm biếm, không thành thật) is one that may be meant or understood as an insult (lăng mạ, sỉ nhục). Someone might say, for instance, “You look like a million. Wow, I didn’t recognize you!” This can suggest that the compliment-giver thinks the person rarely looks great.

I don't go anywhere without my It Cosmetics CC cream ($40), it doesn't matter if it's just day-to-day or I'm coaching. Since it has everything in one—coverage, color-correcting, SPF—it makes my life really easy. Sometimes I'll just add some lipstick and sunglasses, which I think makes you look like a million dollars, even if you've spent about five minutes.

If you’re in an office, Jay O’Connor, chief marketing officer of Blue Jeans, a video conferencing service, suggests painting a spot of wall with the company colors and a copy of the company logo to serve as the backdrop. “You look like a million bucks,” he says. “You look like this incredibly established company. It’s a very low-cost way to make yourself come across as a professional big business.”

Doug Elmendorf đã nói gì?

Hiệu trưởng trường Harvard Kennedy nói rằng:

...bất chấp những đột phá về công nghệ thông tin và công nghệ dữ liệu lớn trong những năm gần đây, nhiều quốc gia đang có tăng trưởng năng suất tương đối chậm. TS. Elmendorf chỉ ra một số nguyên nhân có thể dẫn đến vấn đề này. Ở một số quốc gia tiên phong về công nghệ, những bước đột phá mới sẽ ngày càng khó khăn hơn. Một số quốc gia khác gặp vấn đề trong việc sử dụng vốn và các nguồn lực một cách hiệu quả, nhất là khi đầu tư không phải lúc nào cũng đem lại kết quả như mong muốn. Quyền sở hữu không chặt chẽ cũng có thể là một lý do, bên cạnh đó là việc giải quyết bất đồng kém hiệu quả, dẫn đến đầu tư tiếp tục bị cản trở. Bên cạnh đó là những yếu tố như thiếu hụt đầu tư công vào các lĩnh vực cơ sở hạ tầng, giáo dục và y tế. Chính vì vậy, tăng trưởng năng suất có thể không được như mong đợi, khiến các nhà hoạch định chính sách khắp thế giới đau đầu tìm giải pháp.

...“Khai thác niềm đam mê của bạn và những người xung quanh, đồng thời kết hợp nó với nghiên cứu và giáo dục. Đây là cách sẽ các bạn có được những công cụ để giải quyết tốt nhất các thách thức mà bạn phải đối mặt. Đây là cách để bạn có tác động rõ rệt hơn đến thế giới xung quanh. Tuân thủ các nguyên tắc nhưng giữ cho tâm trí luôn cởi mở. Giữ vững các giá trị của mình để thay đổi thế giới là rất quan trọng, nhưng hãy nhớ rằng có thể không phải lúc nào bạn cũng đúng. Lắng nghe và cố nhìn nhận từ những quan điểm khác chính là cơ hội để học hỏi, để trở thành một nhà lãnh đạo hiệu quả hơn, phụng sự nhu cầu và tiếng nói của đông đảo công chúng hơn".

"Lay a wager" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: Clifford Photography on Unsplash

"Lay a wager" = đặt cược -> nghĩa là hoàn toàn chắc chắn về điều gì; giống 'thế có dám cá không?' các bạn nhỉ.

Ví dụ
If you're now 25 years old, I'll lay a wager that you will go through at least one such similar event in your investing lifetime, and possibly even two. Be well prepared.

Virginia Tech is being given enough points here for me to want to lay a wager on it as it has already beaten (đánh bại) the likes of Michigan State straight up this season.

Yes, both Clemson and Alabama are on the road for conference (hội nghị) games this week. Is that good? Well, it’s probably not bad. I don’t know if I’d lay a wager against either of them (both are favored by more than three touchdowns) but being on the road should hopefully at least make this more interesting.
