"Put your name in the hat" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Joe Ciciarelli

"Put (one's) name in the hat" = Viết tên ai lên mũ như kiểu bầu chọn/đề cử họ chiến thắng trong một cuộc thi đấu hoặc cuộc tuyển cử.

Ví dụ
Thanks to Paramount Home Entertainment we have three Blu-ray copies to give away. To put your name in the hat for the chance to win one, simply answer the question below.

Despite assurances, Isa remained concerned about existing isolation spaces, particularly with the current measles outbreak. It was that concern that prompted her to put her name in the hat for the upcoming CCDHB election.

I would encourage Elliott Summey to put his name in the hat and, if he’s the last one standing after the interview process, then I will be the first to congratulate him. It’s not too late for the authority to do the right thing here, so let’s not miss an incredible opportunity to find the right person.

"Put my monkey up" nghĩa là gì?


"Put (one's) monkey up" = Làm con khỉ/thằng ranh trỗi dậy -> Khiến ai nổi cơn giận.

Ví dụ
“It does put my monkey up. I’m upset,” said Walkingstick. “He’s putting the property values over the lives down here. We’re upstream but we’re still feeling the consequences.”

On CNN Thursday, correspondent Kaitlan Collins revealed the startling reason why intelligence officials don’t want to hold a congressional briefing on global threats: Because they are afraid they’ll contradict (cãi lại, mâu thuẫn với) President Donald Trump’s speeches and put his monkey up.

Have you ever noticed that when someone who has authority over you is disrespectful or gets into your personal space it makes you afraid? That’s odd isn’t it? When someone is disrespectful it should put your monkey up. If our friends or our family members were to be mean to us, that would make us angry. So why not when it is someone who out ranks us?

"Put my head in a noose" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Alex Woods

"Put (one's) head in a noose" = Đưa đầu vào thòng lọng -> Tự phá hủy kế hoạch/tiến trình bởi hành động dại dột của mình; tự đưa mình vào thế bế tắc.

Ví dụ
Jones warned Ms Berejiklian the decision not to cancel the mining giant’s licence entirely meant she had “put her head in a noose” which would be tightened when the “truckies and farmers start”.

Having previously claimed that United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward had been figuring out a way to oust him for five months and suggested that "United put my head in a noose", Van Gaal is not exactly the biggest fan of the Red Devils nowadays.

“I felt like I put my head in a noose,” he tells me now of the big night. “I’ve had my head in a noose for a while but this was really like tightening. There’s no turning back. Critics would destroy you. But I thought, ‘What I am really risking here? A bit of embarrassment, humiliation?’ But I can deal with that.”

"Put my face on" nghĩa là gì?


"Put (one's) face on" = Trang điểm hoặc bôi các mỹ phẩm lên mặt (dành cho phụ nữ).

Ví dụ
You put your face on in the morning and by midday it's gone. Here, we share our top tips to ensuring your make-up lasts all day long.

Of course, there is nothing new about this. When women first began to put their face on in public, they brandished (khua, vung) exquisite gold powder compacts, cut-glass perfume atomisers (bình xịt nước hoa), and decorative tins of rouge, all refillable (còn sử dụng được). That was more than 100 years ago. The future appears to be looking back.

A creamy formula that gives great coverage but doesn’t feel heavy or end up emphasising lines – in fact it contains microspherical powders that sit in those lines and fill them out. You don’t need a lot of this to get results. And although I tend to put my face on with my fingers I enjoy using the brand’s concealer brush to blend this in and make it look even more natural on the face.

"Put butt on the line" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Alexander Popov

"Put (one's) butt on the line" = Ngồi trên dây thép -> Liều lĩnh làm việc gì; đặt bản thân vào tình huống nguy hiểm.

Ví dụ
You want me to fight again, then I should be able to negotiate my fair share of what's coming in from the events that I put my butt on the line for.

"The point is are you willing to put your butt on the line for the good of someone else or something else and in this case Ebola," Lahoud said. Here's how it works: Your partner, in Michael's case Dr. Thilo Kunkel of Temple University, gets a free shot, 5 feet away to kick a soft soccer ball at your behind.

Granted their requested $30,000, with a few conditions. Due to poor reporting in the past, council had denied funding to the festival in previous years and expressed concern about helping out again. However, the event takes place at the base area during off-peak dates, has proven to bring in a large amount of “spendy” visitors and benefits local non-profits Adaptive Sports Center and Tough Enough to Wear Pink (TETWP), which each receive $100,000 from event proceeds. Adaptive’s development director Allison Butcher spoke on their behalf, saying, “I truly think it is a valuable event for the mountain and it’s still relatively young. I would love it if we could give Mountain High a chance this year… We would ensure that they are reporting to you all. I am willing to put my butt on the line for them.”

"Put affairs in order" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Ivan Zhukevich

"Put (one's) affairs in order" = Sắp xếp mọi việc theo trình tự -> Lo chuẩn bị/sắp xếp tiền bạc hoặc các giấy tờ pháp lý (thường là chuẩn bị cho sự chết)

Ví dụ
A couple of months ago, I learned I am terminally ill and I need to put my affairs in order. But despite receiving confirmation of my discharge from the Insolvency Service, Lloyds will not budge.

“The doctors broke the news to myself and Fidelma,” he says. “They told me to put my affairs in order before Christmas. “That was pretty devastating to try and come to terms with. I was the dad of a small child, and to two other children. How would they feel? That was the inner torture (sự đau đớn, tra tấn).

The dad-of-five was transferred to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx for treatment in a hyperbaric chamber (buồng có áp suất cao) to raise his blood oxygen level. His sister Rena and niece Angelika, who flew in from Greece, had reportedly been told to say their goodbyes as the family "put his affairs in order." No trace of Dulos' wife has been found since she went missing in May 2019 amid a bitter two-year divorce and custody (sự chăm sóc, giám hộ) battle. Police files claim her blood was found in the garage, bedroom and car.

"Put to bed with a shovel" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Alex Boyd

"Put (one) to bed with a shovel (cái xẻng)" -> Giết/chôn cất ai (nói giảm nói tránh).

Ví dụ
After an unexpected December trip to China's Hunan province to put her father to bed with a shovel, a Renton, Washington, woman returned home on Feb. 2.

Demorest encountered a deputy who ordered him to the ground. According to the sheriff’s office (văn phòng chánh án, quận trưởng cảnh sát), Demorest pulled a large knife and told the deputy he was going to have to put him to bed with a shovel".

Fischer said that about five years ago the homeowner told the sheriff’s office that he believed his ex-wife, Cheryl Sanders, was trying to hire someone to put him to bed with a shovel. That was the only threat that the sheriff’s office received.

Việt Nam học được gì từ Mexico?

Thú thật là ngày xưa mình cũng mơ mộng và ấu trĩ lắm. Cho đến khi học được cách tư duy độc lập của người Mỹ, qua các tác phẩm Tây-Ta viết về huyền thoại tình báo Phạm Xuân Ẩn.

Mình cũng từng mơ VN ko phải làm hàng xóm cái anh chàng to xác và xấu tính phía bắc, suốt 1.000 năm đánh chúng ta đến 5-6 lần. Tốt nhất là làm hàng xóm với Mỹ, vừa giàu vừa oai, chả bao giờ lấy của nước nào một tấc đất, khổ quá thì vượt biên giới, đi rong ngoài đường lượm đô la độ nhật.

Không ngờ một ông bạn Mexico hỏi ngược mày có biết Mỹ đã xâm lược chúng tao bao nhiêu lần, chiếm của chúng tao bao nhiêu đất, chỉ từ năm 1824 khi chúng tao giành được độc lập từ Tây Ban Nha không? Hết khôn lại dồn đến dại à? Mày có biết thực ra TQ là một tên thực dân to xác nhưng mà hiền hơn Anh-Pháp-Mỹ rất nhiều không?

"Put through the mill" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Clem Onojeghuo

"Put (one) through the mill" = bắt ai chịu những thử thách gay go, bắt ai chịu những nỗi cực khổ; bắt ai tập luyện gian khổ.

Ví dụ
He said: “If you thought they put me through the mill last year, they’ve doubled it this year. “You meet Will and he’s now embedded himself in the village of Grantchester and he’s very much part of the community.”

He didn’t find out until the trial that the woman had a daughter who was mixed up with the UDA and had just got caught with guns. The police thought her daughter could do with some help. So did her mother. She picked out the kid. The cops hadn’t put him through the mill or anything but they’d tried a few tricks, and a slap here and there. One of their own was dead and they didn’t care for the piece of shit in front of them. He wasn’t trembling with fear or anything, but he was wary. You’d be wary too.

Do we have to typecast “her” as a caregiver only. She may be better placed at her work and may earn more than the male members of her family. She may want to play the role of the provider of the family, and that does not mean that she is less caring or loving. It simply means that she is better at a certain job. In such a situation, shouldn’t the others in the family fulfill the caregiving duties? But we put her through the mill and expect her to respond courteously to, sometimes, unreasonable demands placed on her. Worse, she herself takes immense pride in being called a super hero excelling on all fronts. That is the power of conditioning.

Số người chết vì cúm ở Mỹ cao kỷ lục

hơn 80.000 người trong mùa đông 2017-2018, cao nhất trong hơn một thập kỷ...
-----
More than 80,000 Americans died of the flu in the winter of 2017-2018, the highest number in over a decade, federal health officials said last week.

Although 90 percent of those deaths were in people over age 65, the flu also killed 180 young children and teenagers, more than in any other year since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention began using its current surveillance methods.

The high mortality rate (tỷ lệ tử vong) was unusual because it was caused by a “normal” — albeit severe — flu season, not by a new pandemic (dịch lớn; bệnh xảy ra khắp nơi) influenza strain.

In the 2009-2010 swine flu epidemic, by contrast, 59 million Americans are thought to have caught the novel strain that first appeared in the spring, but only about 12,000 died because the infection was relatively mild.

(That flu, an H1N1 strain, was called a “swine flu,” despite the objections of the pork industry, because it emerged in a pig-farming region of Mexico and was the first human flu virus to contain genes from both North American and Eurasian pig flus.)

"Put through facings" nghĩa là gì?


"Put (one) through (one's) facings" = Thử khả năng của ai; ép ai thể hiện khả năng đặc biệt nào đó của họ.

Ví dụ
Three other men were brought in to put her through her facings and left with bruised ribs, sore necks and aching arms after taking turns to fight her.

Such questions are asked to put you through your facings to work in unfavorable conditions and to test your temperament (tính khí) maintaining skills.

But during her three-and-a-half hour long session with PhD student and researcher Kirstyn Krause, Colla had several opportunities to put her through her facings to stay in the box.

"Put on notice" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Simba Munemo

"Put (one) on notice" = Làm cho ai lưu ý, cảnh báo việc gì cho ai.

Ví dụ
If that 28-point explosion against the Texans didn't put you on notice, the Chiefs are not suprisingly the top second-quarter offense in the NFL.

“The idea is that it gives you images or language or something to put you on notice that there are a lot of cyclists,” Vogel said. “This is my effort to try to do something to improve the safety of both the vehicular traffic, and most of all for the people whose lives are at risks as cyclists, for people who aren’t going slow and being careful.”

When they were now pushing to get judgment, it leaked out. I then made appearance in court, APGA had already gotten a lawyer and I went without a counsel and luckily the judge said he wanted to hear me and while I was there the judge ordered that I be served with those processes in court, automatically meaning that that singular action of the judge nullified the substituted service, which had supposedly put me on notice earlier.

"Put you on blast" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Jeffrey Blum

"Put (one) on blast" = nguyền rủa ai -> chửi/tấn công/lăng mạ ai trước công chúng (đặc biệt trên mạng xã hội).

Ví dụ
I need you to back up." "I have followers too and I'm going to start to put you on blast, and they're going to come for you! Stop being mean to me!"

“I couldn’t wait for a company to put me on the map,” said Kross. “I knew I needed to be in control of my presentation and find creative and authentic ways to engage people. Then, when a company wants to get behind me and put me on blast, they can put my entire brand and my fans into their machine. That’s how I can be an asset to a company, rather than building me from scratch.

Curiously, Kim called out fast food burger joint Jack in the Box in May 2019. “Hey, Jack In The Box I have a serious complaint but I won’t fully put you on blast, check your corporate email inbox or send me a DM with direct person for my team to contact. Pronto!” she tweeted. It still remains a mystery what her beef was with the restaurant. They do have plenty of vegan and plant based options now though.

"Put on honor" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by sydney Rae

"Put (one) on (one's) honor" = Buộc ai phải thề danh dự -> Buộc ai phải làm/nói một cách trung thực, đúng như lời đã hứa và không gian dối.

Ví dụ
"Very well," said Miss Meadows. And she called to the girls, "I shall put you on your honour to talk quietly while I am away." But they were too subdued to do anything else. Most of them were blowing their noses.

Gandhi: “I like the idea of putting the mettle of caste Hindus on trial. But the referendum should be taken immediately, say in one year, and if that was unsuitable, then in five years. If once I could infect you with my terrible sincerity, I say put us on our honour.”

Gone are the days when we used to stand in the dust to recite the Ghana National Pledge, "I promise on my honour, to be faithful and loyal to Ghana my motherland…" There were those who struggled to get every line right. There were those who formulated their own words to fill in the spaces that they could not remember. There were those who occasionally slapped houseflies (ruồi nhà musca domestica) from their sores. It was a mixture of enthusiasm, seriousness and nationalism in those days.

Mohandas K. Gandhi đã làm gì sai?

mà bị bắn chết bằng một phát súng vào đầu bởi Nathuram Vinayak Godse - người hiện đang được dựng tượng (ngày càng nhiều) ở ấn độ...
-----

As Hindu nationalism (chủ nghĩa dân tộc) continues its march across India, a cult of personality (sùng bái cá nhân) is rising around Nathuram Godse, the Hindu extremist (phần tử cực đoan) who killed Gandhi.

Under the shade (bóng mát, bóng râm) of a banyan tree (cây đa), a group of worshipers (người thờ cúng/thờ phượng; người tôn sùng/sùng bái) recite (ngâm, tụng) Sanskrit mantras (kinh). A couple men step forward and light a fire. Then they start walking, hands folded, as if in a trance (sự hôn mê, sự bị thôi miên; trạng thái hôn mê, trạng thái bị thôi miên; sự nhập định, sự xuất thần; trạng thái nhập định, trạng thái xuất thần (trạng thái (như) mơ khi tập trung suy nghĩ và không để ý đến những gì xảy ra chung quanh)), toward a statue (bức tượng).

Some drape (che màm, che rèm, che trướng; treo màn, treo rèm, treo trướng; trang trí bằng màn, trang trí bằng rèm, trang trí bằng trướng; xếp nếp (quần áo, màn treo)) flowers over it. Others sing songs of valor (sự dũng cảm) to the statue. It is of Nathuram Vinayak Godse, who assassinated (ám sát) Mohandas K. Gandhi, the revered (đáng kính) father (cha già) of Indian independence (độc lập) and a symbol (biểu tượng) of nonviolent resistance (kháng chiến/cách mạng bất bạo động) the world over.

Indians consider Gandhi one of the fathers of their nation. But the rise of a Hindu nationalist government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has uncorked many extremist beliefs, and admiration for Gandhi’s killer, among some, has become more open. It is a sign of how much India has changed in the five and a half years since Mr. Modi took power.

“Gandhi was a traitor (tên phản bội/phản quốc),” said Pooja Shakun Pandey, who blames (đổ lỗi) Gandhi for partition ((chính trị) sự chia cắt một nước thành hai hoặc nhiều nước; sự chia cắt đất nước (ấn độ năm 1947)). “He deserved (xứng đáng bị) to be shot in the head.”

"Put off stroke" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Gary Bendig

"Put (someone) off (one's) stroke/stride (tiến trình công việc/sải bước)" = Làm gián đoạn, gây trở ngại và làm mất tập trung cho công việc ai đang làm.

Ví dụ
God, no. Imagine the noise. All that beeping. What if it started buffering in the middle? It'd put you off your stroke.

“It hasn’t been a bad stage. I was riding really well until I came up against a rider who I couldn’t get past. He was spraying dirt all over me and he put me off my stroke. I was finally able to overtake him but I ended up losing a lot of time.”

Michael Metge – “It hasn’t been a bad stage. I was riding really well until I came up against a rider who I couldn’t get past. He was spraying dirt all over me and he put me off my stroke. I was finally able to overtake him but I ended up losing a lot of time.”

"As flat as a tack" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: Arthur Savary on Unsplash

"As flat as a tack" = nằm bệt/bẹp dí như cái đinh mũ-> nghĩa là mệt mỏi, xuống tinh thần.

Ví dụ
They’re as flat as a tack, there’s dissension (bất đồng) in the ranks and I don’t care what anybody says, there is still so much residual (còn dư) damage from that camp.

“Foxplay ran second to Winx first-up but she wasn’t the same horse and was as flat as a tack for two weeks. “But Winx comes through a race well, holds her weight and is ready for the next challenge.’’

After four children, her stomach (bụng) looked as flat as a tack, no doubt a mixture of both the stress in her personal life and the demands of caring for and running around after so many energetic youngsters.

"Put in touch with" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Pratham Gupta

"Put (one) in touch with (someone or something)" = Sắp xếp/giúp ai gặp gỡ hoặc nói chuyện với ai/nhóm/tổ chức.

Ví dụ
Niki told Insider that she believes this happened because a CEO that's at Hyman's level "still does for others what she has to do for herself." "She very quickly put me in touch with her amazing team, and the rest is history," Niki added.

Vishal was just one of the many people juggling dual roles until a Twitter user Nikhil George wrote about him, making him popular. He tweeted, “This is Vishal. He delivered my Swiggy order today. He’s an artist and is looking for work. Do let me know if you would like to get a painting/wall art commissioned. I can put you in touch with him. Do spread the word and help him out!.”

Needless to say that the semester came to a close, and yours truly was still internship-less. By the time finals week rolled around, I’d heard plenty of the adage to “network, network, network!” It was all good and dandy advice, except I was clueless as to how. So you can imagine my surprise when I ended up with a lead for an internship (thực tập) on the last day of exams thanks to networking. I rode the elevator with a coworker who told me about her experience interning the previous year for the Laredo Morning Times (LMT), my hometown’s local newspaper. With no more time and no other internship prospects in front of me, I decided to take her up on the offer to put me in touch with the paper’s editor.

"Put in the dock" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Yoosun Won

"Put (someone) in the dock" = Buộc ai phải ngồi ghế dành cho bị cáo (ở tòa án) = Cáo buộc/tố cáo ai đã gây ra tội.

Ví dụ
An innocent man arrested and jailed in error did not have tattoos like the suspect but police convinced prosecutors (người khởi tố tại tòa án, bên nguyên) to put him in the dock anyway.

“She returned to the scene having tied her hair up and taken her earrings out. “She is petrified of the outcome. It caused her anxiety to put her in the dock.” The court heard that Hussain is earning £40 a week on Universal Credit and is applying for PIP.

There was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose reluctant (miễn cưỡng) conversion to the impeachment cause put Trump in the dock in December. There was Chief Justice John Roberts, whose stated reverence (tôn trọng) for institutions and the rule of law raised hope that he might conduct the Senate trial with a firmer hand than what he has thus far shown. There was the Senate Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer, whose demand for additional witnesses and documents sparked a fleeting hope of persuading four moderate Republicans to join in seeking more evidence of Trump’s misdeeds (hành động xấu).

"Faustian bargain" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: WallpaperCave

Faustian bargain (thỏa thuận với quỷ) -> Đây là từ chỉ thỏa thuận của Faust, một nhân vật trong truyền thuyết của Đức, người đã đổi linh hồn của mình cho quỷ ('bán linh hồn cho quỷ') để lấy những lợi ích vật chất. Theo đó, Faustian bargain cũng chỉ những thỏa thuận đánh đổi các lợi ích cốt lõi dài hạn (thường với đối thủ) để lấy những lợi ích ngắn hạn trước mắt.

Ví dụ
This descending (đi xuống) spiral (xoắn ốc) is indicative of a larger curse (lời nguyền) that has haunted Kanye his entire career: his art serving as poison to his sanity (tỉnh táo). It’s almost a Faustian bargain in nature. Just as the erudite Faust sold his soul to the Devil for unlimited knowledge, Kanye has had to sacrifice his mental health for musical perfection and intergenerational (nhiều thế hệ) fame (danh tiếng).

Mike Bloomberg has offered blue America a Faustian bargain: Forfeit (bị tước, bị mất, truất quyền) all credibility (tín nhiệm) on the issues of money in politics and democratic reform, and he will spend whatever it takes to make the bad man in the White House go away.

In this twisted version of the DCU, Wonder Woman and Flash have struck a Faustian bargain to preserve (bảo tồn) what remains of humanity, while Batman leads an underground resistance movement and Superman is trapped inside the heart of the sun.

"Put in an awkward position" nghĩa là gì?

"Put (one) in an awkward position" = ở vào thế khó xử

Ví dụ
Barty immediately shut down swirling social media commentary that claimed Courier put her in an awkward position during their jovial (vui vẻ, vui tính) post-match interview on Rod Laver Arena.

Biden’s answer from the outset was awkward because the question put him in an awkward position. Reparations have become an in-vogue position for progressives and some 2020 Democrats have embraced the idea, but it remains very unpopular with the electorate at large.

His outburst (sự bùng phát, cơn giận) at the house, coupled with his domineering behaviour, had surely made it obvious to her that he was a lot more than just a friend, and since I was not about to explain my relationship with him to her, or anyone else in my family for that matter, it put me in an awkward position.

"Put at a disadvantage" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Robert Eklund

"Put (one) at a disadvantage" = đặt ai vào thế bất lợi

Ví dụ
The height difference between Driver and Johansson would seem to put her at a disadvantage, but she leverages (tận dụng) the situation to make Nicole seem more courageous, finally able to assert herself against this much more imposing figure.

Haney is willing to move up eight pounds to welterweight (võ sĩ hạng bán trung) to fight Broner at a catchweight at 143 lbs, which will put him at a disadvantage. Hearn is well aware that Haney will be taking a major risk with his career in facing the talented Broner.

The other candidate in the race, small-business owner Angelica Garcia, has been endorsed by Gov. Greg Abbott. She is clearly smart, and we do not doubt she would be a quick study, but her inexperience as a candidate and shaky command of the issues during our interview put her at a disadvantage.

"Not to put too fine a point on it" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Ekkapan Kwantong

"Not to put too fine a point on it" = nói thẳng như ruột ngựa

Ví dụ
Not to put too fine a point on it, but if you don't have footage that people want to look at, you have no video. Capturing good visuals is essential, and to do that, some advance planning is necessary.

I did wonder why that was. Were men afraid of being chivalrous (hiệp sĩ, nghĩa hiệp), in case I called them out for not being all modrin and progressive by treating me like a dainty princess? Did they adhere to the (admittedly wise) mantra that you don’t acknowledge a woman is pregnant unless you actually see her baby’s head crowning? Or, not to put too fine a point on it, were they just not arsed?

Not to put too fine a point on it, but winning is, obviously, the thing that’s most important in a basketball game. When you’re trying to evaluate just how good Auburn is, though, all these close games make it awfully difficult. Does it say anything all that much different about a team if they win or lose an overtime game? It’s five minutes of basketball, and in five minutes of basketball anything can happen. Are they clutch (giật, chộp lấy)? Lucky?
