Thật rộng rãi và đầy đủ. Photo by Terry Magallanes from Pexels

"In equal/some measure(s)" = trong phạm vi nào đó, trong một chừng mực, mức độ nào đó gần bằng nhau.

Ví dụ
It’s also a remarkable family home with more than 8,000 square feet, a gourmet (người sành ăn) kitchen, and five bedrooms — it’s formal and elegant but livable and warm in some measure. It’s a testament (minh chứng) to the original owners’ intent to enjoy their family time together. 

“I would to thank Her Majesty the Queen for presenting us with this Prize which we are all delighted (hân hoan) and humbled (khiêm tốn) by in equal measure.” The Queen’s Anniversary Prizes are granted by the Queen every two years, with the School of Jewellery’s award forming part of the 13th biennial (2 năm một lần) round of prizes for 2018-20. 

There are a number of players on the free agent market (thị trường tự do) that would inject a lot of giddiness (choáng váng) into the franchise (nhượng quyền). The kind of players that would make coach Clifford tear his hair out if he had any, and who would frustrate and delight (thất vọng và hài lòng) fans in equal measure with their shot selection.

"In special measures" = trong các biện pháp đặc biệt. Tại Anh, đây là tình trạng mà các nơi như trường học, bệnh viện phải kiểm tra thường xuyên, đảm bảo đã đạt được cải thiện so với lần kiểm tra trước. 

Ví dụ
Governors at a Redditch school are facing calls to resign (từ chức) after a damning Ofsted placed the school in special measures.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has described a care agency it placed in special measures as "deeply concerning" (lo ngại sâu sắc). 

A Coventry primary school has been placed into special measures after dropping from 'good' to 'inadequate' in its latest inspection (lần kiểm tra mới nhất). 

Seven Fields Primary School received a scathing (gay gắt) report from the education watchdog (cơ quan giám sát) and was put in special measures last July. Following an interim inspection (kiểm tra, giám sát tạm thời) by officials last month, the school has been praised for turning the situation round.

"Set about doing" nghĩa là gì?

Cần một nguồn cảm hứng. Photo by  Thom Holmes

"Set about doing" = Bắt đầu làm việc gì.

Ví dụ
Meanwhile, Al wasn’t too pleased about Kim’s new alliance (liên minh) with the dodgy solicitor (luật sư giỏi, tinh ranh), and thus he set about doing some investigative work to try and get some dirt on Ollie.

I left my position at an international law firm and set about doing whatever I could to ensure he lives his best life. It’s a lofty (cao ngất, cao quý) goal at times, one that requires nearly daily advocacy (nhiệm vụ của luật sư, sự ủng hộ tích cực) in one form or another.

“There have been many scientific studies that talk about the key to long-term relationship success being emotional connection and not physical attraction,” Coelen said. “If you could start relationships with pure love, how would we set about doing that? And if you could start with pure love, is that love enough to survive in what is a really polarized world, a really judgmental world and a really detached world?

"Set a trap" nghĩa là gì?

Toang rồi, ông giáo ơi! Photo by  Francis MacDonald

"Set a trap (for someone or something)" = Đặt bẫy ai/cái gì nhằm bắt họ hoặc biết điều gì đó về họ.

Ví dụ
Even while knowing that Senate Republicans would acquit Trump, Pelosi set a trap for Trump and his obsequious (dễ bảo, vâng lời, khúm núm) Republican supporters on Capitol Hill. Lacking Pelosi’s inner confidence and skill at three-dimensional political chess, Trump and Congressional Republicans fell into Pelosi’s clever trap.

Modern civilization (sự văn minh, nền văn minh hiện đại) has set a trap for itself, as ever more complex technologies are deployed at an accelerating rate. Every second, billions of devices, protocols (nghi thức ngoại giao, lễ tân), ideas, traditions, and people interact around the world. The resulting increase in complexity poses a huge and possibly unmanageable challenge.

Kate (formerly Kitty) Pryde is the leader of the Marauders, and a recent addition to the Hellfire Trading Company's Inner Circle. Emma Frost recruited Kate to be the Inner Circle's Red Queen, with Bishop serving as the Red Bishop. Emma's power-play greatly upset the Black King, Sebastian Shaw, which caused him to set a trap for Kate. She ultimately drowned after being tied up, with the Marauders unaware of what transpired.

"Set a spell" nghĩa là gì?


"Set a spell" = Ngồi xuống chốc lát nghỉ ngơi/giải trí và nói chuyện với ai.

Ví dụ
Today’s Photo of the Day is courtesy of our friendly neighborhood fox on Bluff Road. He’s so sociable that he will wander (lang thang) through your yard and set a spell, even if you’re working outside.

Ok that’s it for the Buz on Bizz but don’t cry ‘cause you’re all invited back next week to this locality, to have a heapin’ helpin’ of Citizen hospitality (sự hiếu khách). Biz Buzz that it. Set a spell. Take your shoes off. Y’all come back now, y’hear?

“I love organic, home grown, fresh vegetables to cook with,” he said. “We try our best to use the most organic and healthy ingredients and vegetables. I love to add Cajun twists to every dish.” When asked what’s next, Dunning teased an expansion and even more reasons for diners to sit back and set a spell, with an outdoor patio (sân, hiên) and live music and spirits.

"Set (someone or something) off" = làm nổi sắc đẹp, làm tăng lên, làm nổi bật lên; làm ai bật cười, làm cho ai bắt đầu nói đến một đề tài thích thú; bắt đầu lên đường; làm cho cái gì bắt đầu xảy ra hoặc làm cho ai tức giận.

Ví dụ
Her mom reminded her “it's just a pencil” at the end of the video, which only seemed to set her off more. “It's a perfect attendance pencil!

Antonia worked for a number of years at the British Museum, and one day there, when retrieving manuscripts (bản thảo) from readers, she was handed back a copy of the Chronicle of the Abbey of Bury St Edmunds. She was fascinated by the document and it set her off on the long task of tracing the abbey’s history.

"When you get a beacon you get it all registered and they have all the info about you so when you set it off they can look at it and say 'oh yeah that's Jo'," she says "Then they ring Gareth and say 'oh yeah not a false alarm' and then they come and get you." New Zealand has one of the largest search and rescue regions in the world. And when not everyone registers their beacon it wastes time and potentially costs lives.

"Set (someone or something) up for" = Tạo điều kiện cho ai/cái gì có một cuộc sống hoặc điều kiện sống thuận lợi và đầy đủ; cung cấp đủ tài chính cho cho ai để sống no đủ và thỏa mãn; khiến điều mình muốn xảy ra được với mình.

Ví dụ
Now, starting your day the Willink way might sound intimidating, but we’re here to help. We’ve rounded up a few essentials that should help set you up for success.

“I’ve been saying since last year I was going to be a national champ in the 600. I just wanted to set myself up for a better position and get more experience in the 600 so when I do go to nationals in it I have an idea of how I want to run it,” she said.

"Set my teeth" nghĩa là gì?

Cười hỉ. Photo by Gift Habeshaw

"Set (one's) teeth" = Nghiến răng/siết răng -> Cương quyết/quyết tâm làm cái gì.

Ví dụ
Ever since Bethany discovered the truth about her new boss she's set her teeth to not let him beat him by quitting.

In turn, we set our teeth with how our misguided attitudes affect the sense of personal identity of those in China and of Asian descent (sự sa sút).

It was to attack and retreat on cue, to stand up to Josh Hazlewood and clamp down on Nathan Lyon, to set his teeth against the wind of Mitchell Starc's mid-innings new-ball tornado, in which he tried to achieve with a single snatch what no amount of clean-and-jerk was gaining Australia, and to deny Mitch Johnson a sniff. In this, he was so successful that the Johnson was relegated to last bowler in Steve Smith's rotation, and looked bodily incapable of rousing himself to the task at hand, and the WACA Ground buzzed with speculation that he would hasten into the retirement that has occupying his mind anyway. Near the end, Taylor's task was to play cagey (khôn láu) mouse to Australia's circling cat.

"Roll a set of prints" nghĩa là gì?


"Roll a set of (finger)prints" = Thu thập/lấy mẫu của dấu vân tay bằng cách dùng nước mực hoặc các thiết bị scan hình ảnh.

Ví dụ
One of the applicants, Miss Dan-Amor Favour, described the process as “tedious (chán ngắt)” because the machine did not immediately roll a set of fingerprints.

He described one method of getting fingerprints that is not for the squeamish. At a certain time after death, the skin “degloves.” An investigator can then slide a gloved hand into the dead skin and successfully roll a set of fingerprints.

Lucas goes to a diner, one that I'm familiar with in real life, to make contact. A courier brings him a tablet, which his mystery informant uses to roll a set of fingerprints and obtain a digital signature, presumably for protection.

"On the same wavelength" nghĩa là gì?

Cà phê đắng lắm. Không uống được đâu! Photo courtesy: Mike Lavoie

"On the same wavelength" = cùng tần số -> hiểu nhau, đồng tình vì có chung quan điểm hay sở thích.

Ví dụ
“If we can’t get on the same wavelength we’re never going to finish this project.”

“The Prime minister and I are on the same wavelength when it comes to engaging stakeholders (các bên liên quan) to safeguard (bảo vệ) the best interests of the Maltese (người Manta) and an example of this is the Harmony project, which is aimed at enhancing marine biodiversity protection,” Farrugia replied.

But Brooklyn may not be on the same wavelength as other parts of the city. In Queens, Donald Trump had 867 unique donors (người quyên tặng), almost as many as Sanders. The same was true in the Bronx. While Sanders received a total of 205 donors there, Trump was close on his heels with 185 contributors.

"Never set foot in (some place)" = Không bao giờ đặt chân tới -> Không bao giờ đi vào hoặc tới chỗ nào đó.

Ví dụ
Further enquiries revealed there were no documents to support claims that certain children were attending the nursery – including four "who had never set foot in the nursery (nhà trẻ)".

In his long and distinguished career in journalism, GetReligion Patriarch Richard Ostling had never set foot in Mississippi. The Time magazine and Associated Press religion-beat scribe had covered events in 43 states across America, but had never made it into the land of William Faulkner.

My objective in this expedition was to see if I like Aldi BB #:116756 any better than I have in the past. Whenever I have set foot in an Aldi, I’m overwhelmed by the same impression (correct or not): this is an American supermarket designed by someone who has never set foot in the United States. And for whatever reason, I’ve had the impulse to buy little or nothing there.

"Get ears set out" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Antonio Reynoso

"Get (one's) ears set out" = Cắt tóc, lộ hai cái tai ra ngoài/thấy rõ cái tai (khi cắt tóc).

Ví dụ
"He said, 'No, he can come back when he gets his hair cut,'" the father said. "They made him leave, they knew he wasn't going to get his ears set out."

That’s exactly what Minor hoped would happen. His vision, he said, was to create a "manly kind of place, where you could come in, hang out, get ears set out."

"I haven't got my ears set out for a long time. While I was passing by and saw a shop open. I went in and got my hair cut, which only took five minutes," said a deliveryman happily after getting his hair cut at Meilianmei Supermarket in the Guanzhuang area in Beijing.

"Be set in concrete" nghĩa là gì?


"Be set in concrete" = Đúc thành/xây thành khối bê tông -> Chỉ điều đã được lên kế hoạch hoặc quyết định hết rồi; ý tưởng/chính sách được chỉnh sửa và không thể thay đổi được.

Ví dụ
"I didn't feel that I could dispute (bàn cãi, tranh luận) it you know, [I felt] that [the debt] was set in concrete. I didn't feel that I had any rights there," he said.

“It won’t be set in concrete, but the idea is that Michael will probably focus a bit more on the two-year-olds within the operation and I’ll concentrate more on the older horses, the middle distance and staying types,” he said.

Trump is using incumbency (trách nhiệm, bổn phận) to raise big bucks, but it’s not clear if massive spending will help influence voter perspectives of a president who is already widely known, Czuba said, noting Trump’s poll numbers appear to be “set in concrete.”

"Be set fair" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by ckturistando

"Be set fair" = Thời tiết tốt/cảm thấy tốt; ở thế thuận lợi để đánh bại hoặc chiến thắng.

Ví dụ
So, at the outset of this campaign there was a clear prognosis (sự dự đoán (tiến triển của cái gì)) that Fianna Fail was set fair, with the likelihood of winning 60 seats or more.

If Boris Johnson can get a deal and get parliament (nghị viện, quốc hội) to show its support for it by October 31st and get Britain out of the EU, he’ll have triumphed. He’ll be set fair for a general election next year that would likely deliver him a healthy majority.

Right now, the report card on Griezmann should include "working his socks off," "helping a failing team not fail," "ready to kick on," "needing Messi to instinctively trust him and pass to him," and "defending better than some defenders." He probably won't grumble (càu nhàu, cằn nhằn), and he might face the prospect of Neymar returning next summer -- we can expect another saga (chuyện dài nhiều tập, trường thiên tiểu thuyết) there -- but I think Griezmann is made of the right stuff. If everyone in that squad worked as hard as he does and cared as much, Setien would be set fair for a fine first season.

"Be set aback" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Erik Mclean

"Be set aback/be taken aback" = Ép lại phía sau/(hàng hải) bị gió thổi ép vào cột buồm -> sửng sốt, ngạc nhiên hoặc bị shock bởi điều gì.

Ví dụ
It felt like a life.” Even Krasinski was set aback by the profundity (sự sâu sắc, uyên thâm) of Martindale's praise, nodding and saying only half-jokingly, “That just hit me.”.

It had been two days since I washed my hair, I was wearing no make-up, and I’d slept (not much), in my clothes. Adding to that, I could recognize the strongly subtle signs of dementia (chứng mất trí) in my admirer. At the best of times, I would be set aback by a total stranger telling me that I have a beautiful face, but this time — not quite the best of times — I grabbed onto that compliment and took it for the encouragement I needed right then.

Things were breezy (thoáng gió, nhẹ nhàng, phơi phới) until Tripathi opens a small town Printing Press. Within months, he is charged with an Inflated elctricity bill of 1.5 Lakhs, which escalates to 54 Lakhs in the following months. With no where to go and complain, Tripathi commits suicide (tự tử). S.K is set aback by the events and has a change of heart. He decides to fight out against SPTL , a Privatised Electricity Company responsible for the Inflated Bills. Whether or not he is able to sue the company forms the rest of the story.

"Be dead set on" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  bantersnaps

"Be dead set on" = dứt khoát làm điều gì cho bằng được; quyết tâm có được điều mình muốn.

Ví dụ
"The Trump administration is dead set on appeasing (thoả hiệp vô nguyên tắc, khuyên giải) special interests that want to kill wolves. We're working hard to stop them," Collette Adkins, a senior attorney at the Center, said in the statement.

“I feel so much fatigue (mệt mỏi) and anxiety, and yet I am dead-set on competing again next year,” said Pina. “I will never forget my pride and joy seeing Edward and Caleb win. I’ll never forget getting interviewed by three judges. Responding [to the judges’] questions felt like endless hours of squeezing my hippocampus (chân hải mã, cá ngựa) for everything I learned in science research.”

Valentine’s Day is a beautiful holiday — a day to celebrate all the joy that love, especially romantic love, brings into our lives. But the day can also be pretty alienating (xa lánh, cho giận ghét) if you’re going through a rough spot, just went through a bad breakup, or are just plain down in the dumps. When that’s the case, every red shirt, jewelry advertisement, and flower peddler seem to be dead set on one common goal: making you absolutely miserable.

"All set to go" nghĩa là gì?

"All set to go" = Tất cả đã được sắp xếp đâu vào đấy để chuẩn bị khởi hành, sẵn sàng/đã chuẩn bị để bắt tay làm việc hoặc hoàn thành nhiệm vụ.

Ví dụ
Here we go again. I promised myself I would write a positive column this week, and was all set to go, but wouldn’t you know, I had another adventure that needs to be examined. This is one of those “where does the buck stop” deals that seems to have no answer, yet leaves me holding the empty bag.

It begins on Thursday against the Brooklyn Nets who are just trying to get themselves ready for the 2020-21 season. They will finally welcome Kevin Durant into the fold as he will miss this entire season with an Achilles injury and the team hopes both he and Kyrie Irving will be all set to go. Irving has been in and out of the Nets lineup all season and it has been a struggle for them as well at times.

A friend said he was all set to go to the caucus (chế độ họp kín của ban lãnh đạo một tổ chức chính trị) on March 8 to vote in the primaries. “I hope you will go to the primary election before that on March 3,” I replied. Such is the confusion regarding the first time that Maine is joining in on Super Tuesday, March 3. You can register to vote at your polling place on the day of any election, and you must register as a party member to vote in a primary. To change your party affiliation, you must do so three months in advance of primary day. Here’s the rundown (hạn chế, giảm bớt).

"Put to the proof" nghĩa là gì?

Những hy sinh thầm lặng. Photo by  Jay Heike

"Put (someone or something) to the proof" = Thử thách ai; đem thử/kiểm tra cái gì.

Ví dụ
"The cities have claimed the red light and speed cameras are all about safety and not about money -- we're going to put them to the proof," Seitz said.

Harden not our hearts, as at Meribah, as on the day at Massah in the wilderness, when your fathers tested me, and put me to the proof, though they had seen my work. For forty years I was wearied of that generation and said, "They are a people who err in heart, and they do not regard my ways." Therefore I swore in my anger that they should not enter my rest.

After upgrading to one of the paid plans, you receive access to two popular and proven algorithms (thuật toán), namely the Ping Pong strategy and the Margin Maker strategy. These are pre-made strategies that ease you into the whole platform which is especially beneficial to new users.

"Put upon by" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Fynn schmidt

"Put upon by" = Bị bắt làm nhiều/đè bẹp/chất gánh nặng bởi ai; bị lợi dụng hoặc bị mặc kệ bởi ai/cái gì.

Ví dụ
Ms. Stephanie Binotto had a Letter to the Editor published on Saturday, February 15, 2020. In the letter, she addressed the fact that City Council, especially Mr. Evan Clark, feels put upon by the citizens speaking up to defend the Fire Chief and his department. How sad that the Fire Chief has to defend his department. City Council refuses to even have input from the chief.

His barrister Keith Harrison said that in that case Bell had been 'put upon by others'. Mr Harrison said that Bell's offending was a 'one off' and that he hadn't actually been selling drugs. He said that Bell had suffered from depression and turned to drugs following the 'loss of a child in a fire'. Bell is currently drug free and has been taking steps to address his addiction problem, the court was told. Sentencing, Judge Cross jailed Bell for 18 months, saying that cocaine and heroin are drugs that 'wreck lives'.

It may well be that the Ministry of Education feels put upon by the proverbial holding of its feet to the fire in the wake of these incidents. That is its own fault since in none of the instances referred to so far has it attempted to proffer a clear and authoritative response. It has persisted with its customary line of prevarication (sự lảng tránh, quanh co), and empty promises. Never once has it provided the public with a full report on the outcomes of the various recent in-school incidents which have ranged from drug use, some of it on school premises to parent-on-teacher violence. Always, its responses have hovered between vagueness (lơ đãng, vô tâm) and silence.

"Put trust in" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Prince Abid

"Put trust in" = Đặt niềm tin vào ai/cái gì; nương cậy nơi ai/điều gì.

Ví dụ
"She put trust in that button when she pushed it. And she put trust in the yellow lights, that traffic would stop. And she put trust in that driver, that she had given the driver plenty of room to slow down and stop," Mark Nelson said.

The recent commentary by Igor C. Magalhaes airs some reasonable ideas about stopping human trafficking (buôn người). It’s always timely for the U.S. to put trust in international bodies to investigate corrupt practices that contribute to unsafe conditions. It’s accurate, too, to point out that immigrants (người nhập cư) forced to wait in Mexico for asylum (nơi an toàn, nơi ẩn nấp) hearings in the United States — our government’s current cruel, unprecedented and unlawful policy — live in indefensible conditions.

Oh my God, I don’t even know where to start. I’ve said this before, even if the movie never came out and no one ever saw it, it would still have been a life-changing experience for me to have done it. It was just so incredible to be in that place with so many creative brilliant minds, and to have them put trust in me and to collaborate with me was a really exciting thing. Especially someone like Aneesh, or like [writer-producer] Sev [Ohanian] and [producer] Natalie [Qasabian]. All of them were so supportive of me, and gave me a lot of creative space, as well as being a huge source of guidance for me.

"Put to the blush" nghĩa là gì?


"Put (one) to the blush" = Làm cho ai thẹn đỏ mặt.

Ví dụ
They put her to the blush. They also make her angry. "Who cares about who's to blame? The point is somebody's hurting, they need help.

Most contemporaries (đương thời) who wrote about Mammoth Cave described Bishop as well. JW Spaulding’s 1853 article in The Northern Inquirer calls Bishop as “the most intelligent Negro … that I met with in all my travels” who “can converse on geology (khoa địa chất) and mineralogy (khoáng vật học) with much fluency, and would put to the blush many who have seen much of Academic halls.” Bishop showed Spaulding gypsum-crystal “stars” that looked like the night sky and sang a song on the Echo River, his “clear, sonorous (kêu, vang) voice” filling the cave. “There are two or three guides, who are procured at the hotel,” Spaulding writes. “If possible, get Stephen.”

But having a great voice is not the most important prerequisite (điều cần trước hết, điều kiện tiên quyết) for singing. Don’t put her to the blush or self-conscious about something that brings her so much joy. Focus on teaching her that there’s a time and a place for singing, and that she should feel free to take as much joy in singing as she possibly can. Your daughter is not on the verge of (trên bờ vực, có nguy cơ) auditioning for a show choir. And if that day ever comes, and she experiences disappointment, that’s OK. Kids have to experience disappointment. Don’t pre-emptively seek it out because you can’t handle the idea of her not getting something she may or may not want at some point in the future.

"Put the lie to" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Kate Kalvach

"Put the lie to (something)" = Nói dối, nói sai sự thật về cái gì.

Ví dụ
I used to think one acquired wisdom with age, an accumulation of knowledge and experience rendering me better able to understand my surroundings. Alas, the past few decades, especially the past few years, have put the lie to that.

Climate change (biến đổi khí hậu), Ms. Fleming said, is partly behind her bid for Congress. “I have a record that can put the lie to Lee Zeldin’s claims of being an environmentalist,” she said, touting the resolution she sponsored establishing a community choice aggregation task force in the Legislature, her work to reduce application of the mosquito larvicide methoprene (thuốc diệt ấu trùng muỗi) over Accabonac Harbor in Springs, and shellfish aquaculture (người nuôi trồng thủy sản).

And there's more good news. Recent years have seen a boom in pregnancy help centers — loving and welcoming ministries offering every kind of help a mom could ever need. Many pro-life centers that started as small ministries have since expanded and now provide medical care (such as STI testing), diapers (tã lót) and other supplies, toys, child care, and even in some places job training, typically in a faith-based environment. Pregnancy resource centers now outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities, five to one. These facilities, importantly, put the lie to claims that pro-lifers stop caring about mothers and babies after they are born.

"Put the money up" nghĩa là gì?

"Put the money up (for something)" = Cung cấp tiền/vốn cho cái gì như tiền phí, dự án kinh doanh hoặc thành lập công ty.

Ví dụ
"They put the money up for the Andy Ruiz fight. Everything they promised, they delivered. They want this fight bad and when they've got that kind of attitude and mentality, it's going to be difficult to beat."

"I'm delighted because a number of people said 'this will never work' and clearly it has worked," she said. "I said I would put the money up for the club but this is a joint effort. I'm doing it as a supporter on behalf of the supporters.

During this year's legislative session, Democrats took out some of the governor's priorities and replaced them with theirs. House Speaker Adrienne Jones responded to the governor's decision, saying, in part, "These aren't Democratic priorities, these are the people's priorities. Reckless is not testing rape kits to find rapists (người phạm tội hãm hiếp). Playing games is when you pretend to care about school conditions but then don't put the money up for new school construction."
