Đã đến lúc nới lỏng chính sách bản quyền?

bản quyền lỏng hơn thúc đẩy khoa học (nghiên cứu)..., do giảm chi phí tiếp cận tri thức
-----
Copyrights, which establish intellectual property in music, science,and other creative goods, are intended to encourage creativity. Yet, copyrights also raise the cost of accessing existing work – potentially discouraging future innovation. This paper uses an exogenous shift towards weak copyrights (and low access costs) during WWII to examine the potentially adverse effects of copyrights on science. Using two alternative identification strategies, we show that weaker copyrights encouraged the creation of follow-on science, measured by citations. This change is driven by a reduction in access costs, allowing scientists at less affluent institutions to use existing knowledge in new follow-on research.

The paper title is “Effects of Copyrights on Science: Evidence from the WWII Book Republication Program.”

Câu hỏi dành cho ứng cử viên Tổng thống Mỹ Bernie Sanders

giáo sư mankiw hỏi là thượng nghị sĩ sanders muốn theo 'mô hình bắc âu' (hệ thống an sinh xã hội mạnh mẽ được rót nguồn vốn nhờ vào mức thuế khá cao...), thì có phải là sẽ giảm (thật lớn) lương bác sĩ không? (hiện lương bác sĩ mỹ gấp đôi đồng nghiệp ở châu âu), nếu sẽ giảm thì có cần báo trước cho gần một triệu bác sĩ ko, nếu ko giảm, thì lời hứa tiết kiệm/giảm chi phí y tế có thực tế không?
-----
"Senator Sanders. You regularly say that you want the U.S. healthcare system to be more like those in Europe, with their less expensive, more inclusive, government-run systems. Well, in Europe, physicians are paid less than half what physicians are paid in the United States. (See below.) Is a massive cut in physician salaries a part of your vision for the future of the U.S. healthcare system under a Sanders administration? If so, don't you think you should warn the roughly one million U.S. physicians of that fact now? If not, is it realistic to expect the cost savings that you are promising?"

Man Pulls Out 22 Kg Poop From Constipated (táo bón) Elephant’s Butt (đít), Think you have shitty (bẩn thỉu; kinh tởm; đê tiện; bần tiện; đáng khinh; như cứt) Job?

A bunch (bọn, lũ) of animal doctors (bác sĩ thú y) in Thailand needed to manage a somewhat chaotic (hỗn độn, hỗn loạn, lộn xộn) and messy (hỗn độn, lộn xộn, bừa bãi, bẩn thỉu) situation of a creature (con vật) in trouble. A 60-year-old elephant, named Boon Peng, was enduring stomach distress (tai hoạ, cảnh hiểm nghèo, cảnh hiểm nguy; cảnh khốn cùng, cảnh túng quẫn, cảnh gieo neo) and battling to roam at his fenced-in area in Chiang Mai.

Vets (bác sĩ thú y) showed up and analyzed blockage brought about by a mix of slow digestion (tiêu hóa chậm), lazy solid discharges (sự đuổi ra, sự thải hồi (người làm); sự tha, sự thả (người tù); sự cho ra, sự cho về (người bệnh); sự giải tán, sự giải ngũ (quân đội)), and eating crisp grass that was not part of his eating routine.

As indicated by reports, Boon Peng’s mahout (quản tượng), Kiettisak Kawekan, chipped in for the Job of wearing full-length plastic gloves (găng tay nhựa) to reach inside the elephant’s back and scoop out the defecation (sự gạn, sự lọc, sự làm trong; sự đi ỉa, sự đi tiêu).

"Brainchild" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: Andrea Piacquadio on Pexels

"Brainchild" -> nghĩa là ý tưởng hay hoặc phát minh tuyệt vời của một người, là đứa con tinh thần đó các bạn.

Ví dụ
The brainchild of Brooklyn-based David Sardy, a three-time Grammy Award-winning producer (OK Go, Marilyn Manson, Wolfmother), composer (nhà sản xuất), musician and songwriter, Unequal explores new collaborations (cộng tác) and a mesh of musical elements aimed at disrupting the everyday.

It was and is again the brainchild of Vince McMahon, the visionary (nhìn xa trông rộng) behind the WWE. His hands were all over the original. In a WWE-style move, the original league replaced coin tosses with scrambles, overly focused on cheerleaders and — yes — let players put whatever nickname they wanted on the back of their shirts.

It was the brainchild of programmer (lập trình viên) Boon, John Tobias (art and story), John Vogel (graphics), and Dan Forden (sound design). And now it has outlived (sống sót qua) many of its critics (chỉ trích, phê bình) and become part of mainstream culture.

"Set little by" nghĩa là gì?

Tội nghiệp chú voi con quá! Photo by  David Clode

"Set little by (someone or something)" = Đánh giá thấp ai/cái gì; không hy vọng nhiều vào ai/cái gì.

Ví dụ
The series shows us that Sukki is closer to some of the friends compared to others and as with human nature, some do set little by her friendship or outlook in a reciprocal (qua lại lẫn nhau, tương hỗ) way.

Vishal Aditya Singh also revealed about his story where he was molested (quấy rầy) by a few guys from his village and when he informed his father about it, he had slapped him. Rashami also said that she was often taunted (mắng nhiếc, chửi bới) about being a girl child and she once consumed poison as she did set little by her life. She was saved by her aunt.

What has made this easier to accept, and what has resulted in the swiftest resolutions, has been my awareness of the foundation of who I am and what I stand for: I stand for your greatness, I stand for your healing and I stand for valuing and honoring myself. I know that I can provide so much for the people in my life, I no longer feel obligated (ép buộc) to cater (phục vụ cho) to the whims (ý chợt nảy ra; ý thích chợt nảy ra) assertions (sự xác nhận, quả quyết), and rhetoric (lối nói khoa trương, hoa mỹ) of those who do set little by me or what I have to offer. This has taken time and work to get to.

"Set in cement" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Ehud Neuhaus

"Set (something) in cement" = Đóng thành xi-măng -> Chỉ điều đã được thiết lập rất vững chắc, không thể thay đổi hoặc thay thế.

Ví dụ
Once consumers buy a policy, the vehicle will track and share drive distance, hard braking and accelerating, idle time (thời gian rảnh) and night time driving to set a policy rate in cememt for renewal.

But fair or not, the popular perception of a fighter always skyrockets when he takes out a rival that most didn't give him a chance against. Ali's legend exploded when he shocked the world by breaking down Sonny Liston, and he set it in cement when he upset Foreman a decade later.

Founded in 1979, FAIR is the country's largest immigration (sự nhập cư) reform group. With over 2 million members and supporters nationwide, FAIR fights for immigration policies that serve national interests, not special interests. FAIR believes that immigration reform must enhance national security, improve the economy, protect jobs, preserve our environment, and set a rule of law in cement that is recognized and enforced.

"Be set in your ways" nghĩa là gì?


"Be set in (one's) ways" = Đã thấm sâu vào tư tưởng/đang đi trên đường của mình -> Ý là khó/không muốn thay đổi tư tưởng, suy nghĩ, quan niệm hay thói quen (thường là nói về người già rất bảo thủ).

Ví dụ
You may appear to be set in your ways but you will surprise quite a few people now by how easily you adapt to changing circumstances.

In four decades, maybe all of our technology will have caught up with what The Jetsons showed us was possible. But by that time, I may be set in my ways and not ready to accept new tech. I mean, it was only a few years ago I bought a smartphone and I still have VHS tapes. But I’m pretty sure I’ll be more than OK with a robot that does all of my housework.

“It is different challenges and everyone has got to go through them, whether it is Fylde playing us or going to Anfield or (Manchester) City coming here. “It is how you adapt and you cannot be set in your ways in the beauty of the game. “I enjoy these games. It will be a different type of game from Tuesday, but we have to approach it in the same manner. “We had a proper Sheffield United performance on Tuesday, which was front-foot, aggressive and positive. “The players will have to produce that on Saturday. They have knocked out so many Premier League teams and will be looking to do same to us.

"A one-trick pony" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: Zoltan Tasi on Unsplash

"A one-trick pony" = ngựa con một mánh -> nghĩa là người hoặc vật chỉ có chuyên môn về một lĩnh vực, chỉ có một tài lẻ, tài năng hạn hẹp.

Ví dụ
"The one who should be concerned (quan tâm) is Deontay Wilder because he is a one-trick pony. "He's a knockout artist, but he knocked me down twice in two rounds, nine and 12. And he had over two minutes in each round to finish me and he couldn't finish me. "It was like on (video game) Mortal Kombat. They said 'finish him!', and then he couldn't finish me.

The Montreal-based transportation company Bombardier Inc. sold off its train division to the French transportation giant Alstom last week for $8.2B. Now, Bombardier is basically a one-trick pony: Its one trick just happens to be making luxury (xa xỉ) private jets (máy bay cá nhân).

I’ve always been a one-trick pony when it comes to playing champions on League of Legends (my two pocket go-to’s are Lux and Nami). Having a rank seven mastery is cool and all but everyone knows if you play a champion long enough, you’ll eventually get that mastery so it’s nothing impressive (ấn tượng).

"At a set time" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Kevin Ku

"At a set time" = Theo thời gian đã được thiết lập/cài đặt.

Ví dụ
You could even set your out of office on a timer, so that it will come into effect at a set time. Having an out of office set will leave you to enjoy your holiday without worrying about a build-up of emails to deal with when you get back.

This is because Sims do not go into labour at a set time; though in practice, it usually does occur around 24 hours into the third trimester (thai kỳ thứ ba). The expiration of this moodlet triggers the 'Pregnant: In Labour' moodlet, which grants Uncomfortable +40.

Sure, you can set up something crazy in Windows' Task Scheduler to automatically turn off your computer at a set time each day. It's a little bit of an in-depth process, but it's absolutely doable (có thể làm được) even for Windows novices. You can even make a shortcut on your desktop that automatically powers down your system after a certain amount of time has elapsed. You'll have to activate it yourself, but it's a great kill switch.

"Smart set" nghĩa là gì?

Nữ quyền. Photo by  BBH Singapore

"Smart set" = Chỉ nhóm người giàu có, ăn mặc theo mốt/rất thời trang, có học thức cao/giáo dục tốt và rất có tính nghệ thuật.

Ví dụ
Among the smart set, many of whom have disdain (sự khinh thị) for Peterson, it was shocking that normal, everyday people would concern themselves with such high-minded ideas, yet they did, night after night in packed arenas and day after day in front of screens big and small. Peterson believes that thinking deeply does not require a graduate degree, and he is right.

In the pauses between the greeters and the Royal Nonesuch (Vice Pence, followed by Trump), the sound system piped in a rock medley (sự pha trộn, hỗn hợp), including what is clearly the theme song of the Trump-Pence reelection campaign: “Macho Man”. (“Every man wants to be a macho man/To have the kind of body always in demand…”) Who knew that the Village People would be so popular with the smart set at Mar-a-Lago?

Unlike Lee, Romney said he is open to hearing from Bolton and others, but that the Senate should not consider a vote on witnesses until after opening arguments. The impeachment trial centers on a whistleblower’s (người kiểm soát) complaint about a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, during which Trump allegedly leveraged military aid and a sought-after White House visit in exchange for Ukraine investigating political rival Joe Biden and his son. In his Facebook posts, Lee went on to say those government bureaucrats (quan lại, công chức) have come to think of themselves as the “smart set.”

"Know a trick or two" nghĩa là gì?

Đi diễn xiếc được đấy!! Photo by: Brett Harrison

"Know a trick or two" = biết một hai mánh -> nghĩa là biết những cách làm/phương pháp hay để giải quyết vấn đề.

Ví dụ
These underground kings know a trick or two when it comes to having a great time – as does man of the moment Kojey Radical, who turns up to co-sign the group.

You might want to read it because those con artists are constantly changing their scams (mưu đồ), and they are very good at tricking (lừa gạt) people. A problem deposited with you? Banking on getting some help? Let us come pick it up to help you cash in. We know a trick or two ’cause we have met a crook or two.

However, as the issue ends, we see a woman breaking into (đột nhập) the Bat-cave and stealing Terry's suit. She'll be repurposing it to become Batwoman as future solicits show, although we don't know how because Bruce has a tech lock on the suit. Still, she may well know a trick or two if she has a past with Bruce, with some fans believing her red hair means she may be related to the mainstream Batwoman, Kate Kane, and could be a descendant (hậu duệ).

"Set up home" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Toa Heftiba

"Set up home" = Xây nhà cửa/tổ ấm/thiết lập chỗ ở.

Ví dụ
The group had hoped to secure premises in Dundee, however, with no sites coming up that offered enough space, the team of volunteers decided to set up home in Cupar.

Cobain even had connections to Scotland, and reportedly planned to set up home in a Scottish castle months before his death, after falling in love with the country’s music scene.

Commuters (người đi đường, người đi làm vé tháng (tàu, xe,...)) in Leeds have something to tweet about after a bird set up home in the amber section of a traffic light. The mistle thrush can be seen nesting in the light box, seemingly unbothered by the constantly changing pattern of the lights.

"Howdy and a half" nghĩa là gì?

Nhà rõ gần lại bảo không quen. Photo by Riccardo Bresciani from Pexels 

"Howdy and a half" nghĩa là rất gần (khoảng cách). 

Ví dụ
Finally, I called him on a gas station's phone, and told him that I was howdy and a half to him, but couldn't find him.

Hiawatha noticed Charlotte's furrowed eyebrows (nhíu lông mày). “Don't tell me you don't remember Preston Chambers from down the road. He used to live only a howdy and a half, as Mama would say, from Ramiyah.” 

This canal (con kênh) commences (bắt đầu) in the Mersey river (9 miles above Liverpool) at Ellesmere-port in Netherpool, and terminates in the Severn river at Bagley bridge, howdy and a half to the termination (cuối) of the Shrewsbury canal.  

The Landau family lived in a comfortable home in a large building with many tenants (người thuê), where his father was a part owner of the building: 'We had a very comfortable apartment in that building and that's howdy and a half where [my sister's] wedding took place'.

"Set to music" nghĩa là gì?

Can't live without music. Photo by Ingridi Alves Photograph

"Set (something) to music" = Phổ nhạc cái gì; ghép nhạc vào lời bài hát.

Ví dụ
Evans’ poem was one of 71 submitted to Opera Omaha and their partners in the Poetry and Music Project, Nebraska Writers Collective and the New York City-based Luna Composition Lab, which picked young composers to set poems to music.

The second is a memory trick. Namely, if you set something to music, it will be etched into your psyche (linh hồn, tinh thần) for evermore. My class had to sing our vocabulary lists and while other lessons – any maths beyond the three times table, for example – have long deserted me, I could still, if required to, fluently ask a new Gallic acquaintance whether they have a pet.

“I love to set words to music because, to me, beneath words are sounds, and beneath sounds are the profound forces and intensities of living experience,” said Hulse in an e-mail. “Words open doors to sonic landscapes. But it is that ‘beneath’ that I am aiming for, which is eternally created and creative, and which, through the miracle of art forms, can be shared. It celebrates the creativity of life, and confirms for each of us that we are not separated – we are different but joined, unique yet drawing one breath, sharing in the life force that resounds all at once, all over the earth.”

"Without half trying" nghĩa là gì?

Tay sát gái. Photo by Silvio Barbosa from Pexels 

"Without half trying" = không cố gắng, một chút cũng không. 

Ví dụ
Duke Jenkins was the kind of overwhelming, purely masculine man who made a woman's toes curl (co quắp ngón chân) without half trying. 

He could get her on her back without half trying. As far back as he could remember he could have any woman he wanted, and Jilly was just one more. 

The tale moves along as smoothly and inevitably as oiled machinery (máy bôi trơn); obviously, it could not have been arranged otherwise than it is; and the wise reader is convinced that he could have done the thing himself without half trying. 

Looking at the wide hips of my hula sisters, I thought, this is ridiculous (nực cười)! Of course they can do a beautiful ka’o or ‘ami without half trying, because they have more to work with. But no one will even be able to tell whether my microscopic (siêu nhỏ) man hips are swaying or not.

"Set the agenda" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Alexa Williams

"Set the agenda" nghĩa là ra lệnh/đọc để nhân viên/cấp dưới lên danh sách vấn đề/nghị trình sẽ được bàn bạc trong cuộc họp.

Ví dụ
Then, rather than dealing with matters through solicitors (luật sư), a series of ‘four-way’ meetings are set up between the separating couple and their legal representatives. At the meetings the separating couple set the agenda and are supported, advocated for and advised by their respective lawyers with the view to reach mutual understanding and agreement.

“…So why would you celebrate a youth day in the face of those critical issues,” Sithole said. Political activist Lynette Mudahwe felt Zimbabwean youths have not been given the opportunity to set the agenda for the country and for their own cause. “It’s very unfortunate that the youth of Zimbabwe are not being given the space to articulate issues affecting them and the space to set the agenda for the country.

There's a lot of tail-wagging-the-dog. But elections are about voters. They’re about you — and the choices you have to make. They’re about the things that actually affect your life. Too often, voters’ voices play a secondary role in the reporting about elections. Voters are asked about policies or ideas from the candidates asking for their votes, but rarely is it the voters who are setting the agenda. KUT is trying to change that for 2020. We want you to set the agenda.

"Tear in half" nghĩa là gì?

Bớt bớt chế giễu Trump đi nào :D. Photo by golfbag3

"Tear/rip (someone or something) in half" hoặc "rip something in two" = chia/xé ra làm nửa. Nghĩa khác là gây tổn thương tâm lý ai. 

Ví dụ
And when they lay tangled together later, she trailed a lazy finger along the photos on the wall, pictures of the two of them that he'd torn in half and then mended (dán) with Scotch tape. 

I will still be whole (when you rip me in half) was first performed at VAULT Festival on 27 February 2019 with Kailing Fu as Joy and Rosa Escoda as EJ. It then transferred (chuyển đến) to The Bunker Theatre on 12 November 2019. 

Speaker of the House (Chủ tịch Hạ viện) Nancy Pelosi promptly ripped President Trump’s State of the Union speech (phát biểu Liên bang) in half at the conclusion of his annual address to Congress (Quốc hội) on Tuesday night. Prior to the speech, Trump had conspicuously (dễ thấy) avoided shaking hands with Pelosi — passing her his prepared remarks in a thick folder, but ignoring her outstretched hand.

"Set sail for some place" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Jeremy Bishop

"Set sail for some place" = Căng buồm khởi hành/đến nơi nào.

Ví dụ
The Island Princess then sets sail for the Arabian Peninsula with calls in Muscat and an overnight in Dubai before sailing to Aqaba and through the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean.

Just after Victor Dalmau marries the pregnant Roser Brughera, they set sail on the SS Winnipeg. This French steamer actually existed; the Chilean president once charged the poet Pablo Neruda to fill it with Spanish refugees (người tị nạn) to whom he was offering asylum (nơi an toàn, ẩn nấp) in Chile. In September of 1939, the Winnipeg set sail for Chile carrying 2,200 Spaniards who had been held in French internment camps (trại giam giữ). On the night the steamer set sail, Neruda wrote: “The critics may erase all of my poetry, if they want./ But this poem, that today I remember, nobody will be able to erase.”

In May 1942, a Japanese carrier task force composed of two carriers and three cruisers set sail for the Aleutians under Adm. Kakuji Kakuta. He was tasked with knocking out U.S. naval forces stationed at Dutch Harbor, Unalaska Island in the eastern Aleutians, and seizing the western Aleutian islands of Attu, Kiska and Adak. This attack was meant both serve as a diversion ((quân sự) chiến thuật vu hồi, chiến thuật nghi binh) from a larger carrier task force sailing for the important U.S. naval (thuộc hàng hải) base at Midway Island, as well as to deny the U.S. access to Attu Island, which could have been used as a base to bomb the Kurile Islands, which were then under Japanese administration. The Japanese high command was particularly sensitive to this threat after the Doolittle bombing raid of Tokyo on April 18, 1942.

"Beyond measure" nghĩa là gì?

Cảm ơn các bạn tình nguyện viên vì sự cống hiến hết mình! Photo by tear cordez from Pexels

"Beyond measure" = quá độ -> rất lớn, rất mãnh liệt, bao la, bát ngát. 

Ví dụ
He was talented (tài năng) beyond measure.

Our volunteers are baking every day of the week, for people they will likely never meet but the impact of their work is profound (sâu sắc). Creating those connections (tạo kết nối) between strangers is powerful beyond measure. 

The "luxury closet" is now doable at many price points (mức giá); it's just a matter of perception (nhận thức). I have had clients (khách hàng) thrilled beyond measure for their simple white wall-hung closet with pink ceiling and chandelier (trần và đèn). 

“The reason I wanted to hear from John Bolton was that I hoped beyond measure that he would say something that would provide reasonable doubt, so I wouldn’t have to convict (kết án),” Romney said in an interview that aired Thursday on the newspaper’s podcast “The Daily”.

"Set out my stall" nghĩa là gì?


"Set out my stall" = Trưng bày gian hàng/thoát ra khỏi chuồng -> Thể hiện/phô diễn với ai về khả năng và quyết tâm của bạn để chứng minh là bạn có thể làm được hoặc đạt điều gì.

Ví dụ
"When it became apparent that there was no positive change going to be happening here I set out my stall , saying I would like to set up a provision," explained Charmaine.

I had just three months between appointment and our management conference to land a new people strategy. I had a small window of opportunity to gain backing from my new peers and the CEO and set out my stall for running the function going forward. Feedback was swift (mau, lẹ) and emphatic (mạnh mẽ, dứt khoát), and I had the green light to come up with a formal, three-year HR strategy.

‘So if I get to that stage, I had a plan to get things in the open. I’d rather lose it quickly than lose a long one. ‘You just have to play the game on your terms – set out your stall. ‘My mission when I first started to play was to enjoy it, play fluent snooker, so it shouldn’t be any different if you’re a professional.’ O’Sullivan takes on Wilson at 1pm on Saturday before Shaun Murphy and Yan Bingtao meet in the second semi-final at 7pm.

"Confidence-building measure" = biện pháp xây dựng lòng tin -> (chính trị, kinh tế) biện pháp loại bỏ hay giảm thiểu xung đột, tranh chấp giữa hai hoặc nhiều bên.

Ví dụ
Talks between Greek and Turkish defense officials (cán bộ quốc phòng) completed on Thursday a round of talks that begun on Monday on confidence-building measures (CBM), state-run news agency ANA-MPA reported.

The Taliban in Afghanistan and the US government have agreed to try what's being called a "reduction in violence" (giảm bạo lực) for seven days. It's a confidence-building measure aimed at moving into broader peace talks. 

German Ambassador (nhà ngoại giao) to Libya Oliver Owcza on Saturday stressed the importance of confidence-building measures in Libya, which is witnessing (chứng kiến) deadly armed conflict (xung đột vũ trang làm chết người) between the eastern-based army and the United Nations-backed government.

"For good measure" nghĩa là gì?

Giới thiệu sản phẩm mới của Oppo. Photo by Isriya Paireepairit

"For good measure" = để ước lượng đủ -> (khi thêm cái gì vào) để đảm bảo đúng, đủ lượng cần hoặc để chắc chắn là biện pháp đó hoàn thành và thành công. 

Ví dụ
Netflix’s new reality series Love Is Blind is sort of like the love child of The Bachelor and Married At First Sight, with a little bit of 90 Day Fiance thrown in there for good measure. 

Thanks to what appears to be a leaked invitation, we now know the Oppo Find X2 will arrive on March 6, and we expect to see Oppo’s new smartwatch (đồng hồ thông minh) for good measure.

That reinforced (củng cố) that his initial win was far from just a good night or fluke (may mắn). He then proceeded to defend that very title three more times before the year ended for good measure. 

Jeremy Corbyn held out this promise to voters (cử tri) - instead of clicking fingers, simply place an ‘X’ next to the Labour candidate (ứng viên Đảng Lao động), and he could come in and lower rents. Higher wages were also on the menu for good measure.

Thu Phương

"In full measure" nghĩa là gì?

Giảng dạy sao cho hiệu quả luôn là một thách thức lớn. Photo by Christina Morillo from Pexels

"(In) full measure" = tính toán, đo lường đủ -> đủ, toàn bộ, tất cả. Ngược lại "short measure" là thiếu so với thực tế. "Give full/short measure" nghĩa là cân đủ/ cân thiếu. 

Ví dụ
 An article in The Cork Examiner on April 27, 1912, said the “sympathy (sự đồng cảm) of the people of Cork will go out in full measure to the parents of Miss Nora Hegarty of Killavallig, Whitechurch, and Mr. Jeremiah Burke, of Upper Glanmire, both of whom were only 19 years of age and who lost their lives in the Titanic disaster (thảm họa). 

Teaching is a complex challenge, but master teachers understand the need to check for understanding. They gather data to improve their instruction (bài giảng) and hold high expectations for all. They focus on outcomes (kết quả) for each child. I have never met an educator who believes test scores are the full measure of a student. 

Global Electron Beam EB Based Coating Market Report provides insights into the global Electron Beam EB Based Coating market along with its variable patterns (mẫu biến đổi), infrastructural properties (cơ sở hạ tầng), industry environment (môi trường công nghiệp), and all dominant aspects (khía cạnh chi phối) of the market in full measure.

"Set the heather alight" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by mehul dave

"Set the heather alight" = Đốt cháy cây thạch nam/làm cho cây thạch nam bừng cháy -> Làm điều gì rất hấp dẫn/lôi cuốn//thu hút nhiều sự chú ý; vô cùng nổi tiếng/phổ biến rộng rãi.

Ví dụ
On Hibs.net, Yer Auld Da posted: "There’s a few in that squad proving us all wrong. James hasn’t exactly set the heather alight but look at the turnaround in some of the other players... have some patience."

Guest vocalist Marina Martensson could set the heather alight with her soaring, angelic vocals, while the practically subsonic frontman Milan Fras joined in on a suitably craggy Climb Every Mountain, a trippy Do-Re-Mi and a frankly disturbing Sixteen Going On Seventeen.

Not sure what else GT was supposed to do.The buck stops with him. The senior players group weren’t happy with FR but possibly don’t have any powers of punishment. FR didn’t set the heather alight against Ireland in last year’s 6 nations or in the world cup so I’m not sure he was automatic pick especially given AHs form right now so phsycologically could be a significant blow to Russell’s ego without a risk from the manager.

"Set off alarm bells" nghĩa là gì?

Ringggggggggggg... Photo by Olesya Grichina

"Set off alarm bells" nghĩa là gióng chuông/Rung chuông cảnh báo.

Ví dụ
Gil McGowan, Alberta Federation of Labour president, said Premier Jason Kenney’s government’s decision to tear up a negotiated and legally binding agreement with doctors “should set off alarm bells with all Albertans.”

The specter (điều lo ngại ám ảnh, bóng ma) of such a bill passing set off alarm bells for many of the thousands of dealers gathered here in Las Vegas. And dealers were already worried. Nearly two-thirds who responded to an Automotive News survey in early February said they had concerns about the future of the franchised model.

Security experts (chuyên gia an ninh) are warning of a new extortion (tống tiền, moi của, bóp nặn) email campaign threatening to bombard (bắn phá, ném bom) websites using AdSense with fake traffic, thereby triggering Google’s anti-fraud systems. A website owner wrote to journalist and researcher Brian Krebs claiming to have received just such a threat. The extortionists demanded $5000 in Bitcoin, or else they would bombard the site with bot-driven traffic. This in turn, they claimed, would set off alarm bells with Google and force the tech giant to suspend the web owner’s AdSense account, depriving him of valuable advertising revenue (doanh thu quảng cáo).
