Không cái dại nào giống cái dại nào

giấu mật mã ví bitcoin (trị giá 46 triệu bảng) bằng cách in ra để vào cần câu, nhưng ngồi tù, và chủ nhà thuê vứt cần câu ra rác mất tiêu
-----

In early 2017 Clifton Collins, an Irish drug dealer (buôn lậu ma túy), had a dilemma (tình thế tiến thoái lưỡng nan): where to hide the codes (mật mã) of his illicit (trái phép, không hợp pháp; bị cấm; lậu) €55m (£46m) bitcoin fortune (tài sản, gia sản).

His solution (giải pháp) was to print them on to an A4 piece of paper (in ra tờ giấy a4) and stash (giấu) it in the aluminium cap of a fishing rod (cần câu) case kept at his rented home (nhà đi thuê) in Farnaught, Cornamona, County Galway. It seemed a good idea at the time.

Then three things happened. Police arrested Collins after finding €2,000 worth of cannabis (ma túy làm từ cây gai dầu) in his car. He was sentenced to five years in jail. The landlord of the Galway house had it cleared out, resulting in Collins’ possessions being taken to a dump (bãi rác).

...Waste from the dump goes to Germany and China to be incinerated (đốt, hỏa táng). The fishing rod case has never been found.

"Battle of the giants" nghĩa là gì?

"Battle of the giants" = cuộc chiến của những gã khổng lồ -> nghĩa là cuộc xung đột hoặc tranh luận giữa 2 người hoặc nhóm, tổ chức quyền lực/hùng mạnh.

Ví dụ
New Zealand down South Africa in blockbuster battle of the giants. In a hard-fought, tight tackling game, New Zealand come out on top.
The All Blacks score two tries in the first half within a five-minute span to seal the deal before going into defensive lockdown.

The battle of the giants has this year seen movie studios, technology firms (công ty công nghệ) and even telecoms (viễn thông) corporations squaring off in a rivalry that leaves most UK firms looking like minnows.

If you want a battle of the giants, a Kong to take on Godzilla, then Slack is the polar opposite (cực đối lập) of Microsoft. Slack customers are early adopters of a highly disruptive, digital-native pattern of team working, as we've documented in user stories from Monzo and Zendesk among others.

"Raise a red flag" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: ‏🌸🙌 فی عین الله on Unsplash

"Raise a red flag" = phất cờ đỏ -> nghĩa là cho thấy dấu hiệu, báo hiệu nguy hiểm hoặc rắc rối.

Ví dụ
Haken and Joker weren’t the only threats (mối nguy) to raise a red flag with security researchers. The AZORult Trojan, Dharma ransomware, Adwind and ObliqueRAT also attracted attention within the security community.

While this might not help with apps that have a legitimate (hợp lý) need to access the clipboard, since you’re likely to give these permission anyway, it should raise a red flag if something like Candy Crush requests access to your system clipboard as soon as it starts up.

If an NDA seems less like an effort to protect confidential (kín, bí mật) company intel, and more geared toward muzzling the employee from speaking out about improprieties, that should raise a red flag, she said.

"Hang by the eyelids" nghĩa là gì?


"Hang by the eyelids" = treo bằng mí mắt -> cầm/nắm lỏng lẻo/không chặt.

Ví dụ
Fillet knives can feature handles in a variety of materials, such as plastic, metal, wood, or bone. The most important thing to consider is how the handle feels when you're holding it, so look for an option that fits your hand well and is comfortable to hold whether you're gripping the knife tightly or just hang by the eyelids.

It’s an explosive moment that sets up the back half of the series, marking the official transition away from “In the Woods” into the storyline of “The Likeness,” as Det. Rob Reilly (Killian Scott) and Cassie both now embrace the double lives created by their catastrophic childhoods. For both actors, it presented a tantalizing (giày vò, đày đọa) challenge in not only keeping the storylines straight, but conveying the textures of characters who opt to hang by the eyelids in reality in order to maintain their sanity.

"And hang the cost" nghĩa là gì?


"And hang the cost" = Treo giá lên -> Không quan tâm giá cả ra sao/phải trả giá ra sao hoặc mặc kệ đắt hay không.

Ví dụ
For those who like their gaming experiences silky-smooth and – hang the cost! – packed with exceptionally crisp, clear detail, Acer claims to have got you covered. The Taiwanese PC manufacturer has just taken the wraps off a 55-inch 4K OLED gaming monitor at CES in Las Vegas.

If I had it to do over, deep down I know I’d still be a human rights lawyer, preferring to die on my feet than live in shame on bended knees. Here, I paraphrase Dolores Ibarruri, La Pasionaria, who also famously cried No Pasaran! — they shall not pass — the slogan of the resolute (kiên quyết), ready to give their all for the motherland, and hang the cost and consequences.

So, given £20,000 and told it must go on one of these two, which would you choose? The supposed peace of mind, satisfaction and investment value of a pristine (tinh khôi, còn mới nguyên) low-mileage import, or £12,000 in spare change courtesy of what still looks to be a pretty sound car? It seems that one PHer has already made his mind up, with the ad claiming a deposit to have already been taken on the more expensive of our two candidates. Obviously, if it's the car you really want, you take the best example and hang the cost. But for anyone else, £12k seems like a lot of compensation (bồi thường) for living with the well used candidate.

"Somewhere to hang hat" nghĩa là gì?

Kiếp thiêu thân. Photo by  Elijah Hail

"Somewhere/some place to hang (one's) hat" = Nơi để treo mũ -> Chỉ nơi để ở/sống, nơi mình gọi là nhà.

Ví dụ
“This was just a retirement plan — somewhere to hang my hat,” Bohland said. “I have done this before and it is in my head. I work that way.

“I need a place to hang my hat,” the North End native says about keeping his neighborhood spots. There’s too much sentimental attachment, he adds, invoking the memory of his late mother. “Those two [Strega and Nico] had a special place in her heart. She was very proud, and it made me proud to make her proud. I don’t think I would ever sell.”

“I played for a lot of ball clubs,” Smith said, trying to explain the long delay. “But I think the one thing is that I heard a lot about my having played for a lot of different teams and have somewhere to hang my hat, but like I said, this is my favorite hat so far. I'm just glad finally the closers in the game are getting a little more recognition for what they've done in the game.

"Not care a hang" nghĩa là gì?

Yêu thế sao không quan tâm được. Photo by  Priscilla Du Preez

"Not care a hang (about something)" = (thông tục) bất chấp, không cần; không quan tâm tẹo nào.

Ví dụ
Well that’s quite normal down on the Belongil beach, usually some one from out of town who doesn’t care a hang that the dangerous dog seems to have the right to rip apart a more peaceful breed of dog or dogs .

Not to generalise, but because of their callous (chai lỳ, nhẫn tâm), don’t-care-a-hang approach to life, most of these badasses grow up to be men who can’t hold jobs, aren’t exactly driven, and are looking for easy money. What was once laughable (nực cười) in your teens is now a reason for you to cringe (khúm núm, lùi lại).

Talk about fashion or style, and the first thing that comes to my mind is English supermodel Kate Moss. I find her the most stylist person ever. She is a complete package of a laid-back and carefree persona. Her attitude of “I don’t care a hang” reflects in her dressing sense, walk, et cetera, and it is simply superb. She is not the kind of a person who ends up looking sleek, fit and tidy all the time, but she looks her best when she is messy and without any make-up. She effortlessly ends up looking the most beautiful in sunglasses advertisements — especially with dark colour lipstick.

"Hang up (one's) hatchet" = Cắm rìu xuống -> Dừng công việc để nghỉ ngơi đã, xong làm tiếp; từ bỏ một công việc.

Ví dụ
Saving now for retirement will help ensure you have enough money to enjoy a comfortable standard of living when hang up your hatchet .

Spending time with your friends and family or your partner can give you a much-needed energy boost and is a great way to hang up your hatchet.

The Greensboro City Council spent from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb 24 at the ACC Hall of Champions at the Greensboro Coliseum talking about vision statements, mission, statements values and finally goals. They did hang up their hatchet for lunch, but mainly they worked on the tasks assigned by strategic consultant Meredith Powell, who did a remarkable job of keeping the mayor and councilmembers on task all day.

"Hang up my fiddle" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  joyce huis

"Hang up (one's) fiddle" = Treo cái chốt chặn -> Ngừng làm việc/kinh doanh, về hưu.

Ví dụ
After working their separate jobs for decades, some couples can't wait to hang up their fiddle and finally spend time together doing the things they love.

For many years, the early 60s has been the default (mặc định) age range for retirement. This is an ideal time to hang up their fiddle, but many others would prefer to retire earlier. However, fears about lower social security, unexpected expenses or outliving their retirement savings can keep them from seriously considering it.

Your 20s may not seem like a time to focus on retirement. At that point, you're probably busy paying down student loans, chipping away at credit card balances, and attempting to sock away funds so you can eventually stop renting a place to live and actually buy one of your own. But if one of your goals is to hang up your fiddle early, then you'll need to start working toward it from as young an age as possible. With that in mind, here are a few things you can do during your 20s to help ensure that you're able to eventually leave the workforce when you want to.

"Hang paper" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Luca Laurence

"Hang paper" = Treo tờ giấy/báo -> Viết/phát hành một chi phiếu không xác thực, sai và gian dối.

Ví dụ
Covington County District Attorney Walt Merrell wants to remind merchants (thương gia, nhà buôn) and consumers that it is a criminal offense to knowingly hang paper.

Endless leadership meetings were given over to trivial (tầm thường, vô giá trị) nonsense – such as how best to hang paper showing modelled calculations (sự tính toán) on a string “washing line” – at the expense of strategic actions.

That's Philip Stinson. He's a former cop who's now a professor at Bowling Green State University teaching criminal justice and researching police officers with troubling records. He's found that even when agencies do take action and hang paper on someone, that's when a cop writes a memo about another cop's bad behavior. They don't always share that information.

"Hang on by your fingernails" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Catt Liu

"Hang on by (one's) fingernails" = Nắm bằng/chộp lấy bằng các móng tay -> Khó tránh được vấn đề rắc rối/thất bại.

Ví dụ
“Last year was the perfect storm. It wasn’t good during any season, especially Christmas,” she said. “Either you hang on by your fingernails or get out while the getting out is good.”

“You are doing great mama. I’m so proud of you. Early days are the time when every mom feels most exhausted, isolated and overwhelmed. All you have to do is hang on by your fingernails and keep climbing the mountain. You’ve got this.”

One male teacher told researchers: “I was feeling totally overwhelmed by the workload and working 60+ hours a week just to hang on by my fingernails. I have actually contemplated suicide (đã dự tính tự tử) as a way out because the situation is making me miserable (khốn khổ). I cannot carry on like this for much longer.”

"Hang on your coattails" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  daniel kalman

"Hang on (one's) coattails" = Bám váy/đuôi áo ai -> Chỉ người ăn bám người khác, ăn ké/hưởng lợi từ người khác; lợi dụng sự thành công của người khác để đạt mục đích của mình.

Ví dụ
It all depends on how a person feels when they see an actor with an entourage (những người tuỳ tùng, vùng lân cận) of those they either trust or use as crowd control, but on a personal note it seems like it would be better to be able to to just hang out alone or with a couple of friends rather than have those that are determined to hang on your coattails and enjoy the ride.

To know a powerful man’s character, find out who his enemies (kẻ thù) are. Flatterers (người tâng bốc, xu nịnh) and opportunists (người cơ hội) will hang on his coattails; his opponents are a surer path to truth. The loudest opponent of the Dutch diplomat Frans Timmermans in the race to become the next president of the European Commission is Hungarian strongman Prime Minister Viktor Orban. Orban insists that picking Timmermans would divide the European Union between East and West. This is blackmail (mail đen, mail tống tiền) and bluff (lừa bịp). Anyone who wants the EU to succeed must ensure that Orban’s gambit (bước đầu (trong công việc)) fails.

Winning that title was another great feeling of mine. I wanted to become the undisputed world champion (nhà vô địch thế giới vô đối thủ, được công nhận/không bị tranh giành). The third guy (WBA titlist Julio Cesar Vasquez) wouldn’t fight me and this other guy Paul Vaden was having an affair with (ngoại tình với) my ex-wife and that’s why we had all of the anger and animosity (hận thù). This guy would come into the gym and hang on my coattails and all along he was trying to screw (giao cấu) my wife. He acted as though he wanted to be my friend and hang around me. So I was angry going into the fight and even building up to the fight. I would catch her coming from his apartment; me being a Gemini, I was very snoopy (rình mò), the way I would snoop around and investigate. I was a real private investigator. I was following her around and would catch her going to his place. I was just so upset, so pissed off that she was doing this to me with a guy that boxed. I would have been hurt if it had been somebody else, some other stranger, but it was a guy who was trying to be my friend and you know, wanted to be a champion, the type of champion I was at that point.

"Hang in the balance" nghĩa là gì?

Peace in mind. Photo by  Jordan Opel

"Hang in the balance" = Đang ở thế cân bằng -> do dự, lưỡng lự; ở vào tình trạng (nguy ngập).

Ví dụ
Consumer products related counters remained to be the top loser with Nestle declining 70 sen to RM141.70, F&N declined 50 sen to RM29.80, Heineken slid RM1.24 to RM27.12 and Carlsberg shrank RM1.20 to RM33.76. Construction index meanwhile erased 1.09 per cent, as uncertainties over the revived and newly announced projects are left hang in the balance, combined with the impact of ongoing COVID-19 concerns.

Barring urgent intervention (sự can thiệp cấp bách), the Polish government will likely break the standoff (ngưng trệ, đình trệ, bế tắc) by simply waiting for the expiration of the current Supreme Court president's term on 30 April and appointing a party loyalist to replace her, beyond which point serious prospects for reasserting judicial independence will by most accounts no longer be viable (không còn khả thi nữa). Not only does that independence now hang in the balance, but so does Poland's very integration (hội nhập) in the EU legal order.

"In the instant petition (đơn, kiến nghị) for a writ of certiorari (lệnh toá án cấp trên xét lại vụ án), Reed has presented a substantial body of evidence that, if true, casts doubt on the veracity (tính xác thực) and scientific validity (tính hiệu lực/giá trị pháp lý về mặt khoa học) of the evidence on which Reed's conviction (kết án) rests," Sotomayor wrote. "Misgivings this ponderous (nặng) should not be brushed aside even in the least consequential of criminal cases; certainly they deserve sober consideration when a capital conviction and sentence hang in the balance."

When the signal has a red arrow (mũi tên đỏ), what I've seen is that the line backs up because a car won't hang a ralph on the red arrow light,” Siegel said.

"I obviously knew from the meeting before the race that there was that tight corner with around 200metres to go, but in the race situation I was just following Teuns' wheel, and the corner came up on us very quickly," said Haig at the end of the stage. "We came up that rise and there wasn’t really any barricade (rào chắn) or person in a florescent (nở hoa) vest on the corner indicating where to go and I ended up being on the left-hand side of Teuns' wheel, on the outside and as he went straight I couldn’t hang a ralph. It is very disappointing.

Ví dụ
So hard for him to handle a good outcome when hanging on by a hair at the moment.

Pat Fields was all over the place and DTY played another solid game. Fields was particularly effective in helping the Sooners to hang on by a hair to win the game.

A missed point-after in the second half was the margin the Tigers needed to hang on by a hair, and Florida's anemic (thiếu máu, xanh xao vì thiếu máu) offense (ý nói: tấn công phờ phạc/rời rạc) couldn't quite find a way to move the ball down the field in the final minutes to find a potential game-winning score.

Covid-19 càng nghiêm trọng, nhà đầu tư càng mất tiền

nắm trái phiếu dịch bệnh (pandemic bond) của ngân hàng thế giới, hưởng 6,9%/năm, nếu số người chết lên tới 2.500 là mất sạch tiền gốc...
-----

The instruments offer higher-than-average returns, but bondholders will lose their principal in the event of a qualifying pandemic.

If certain criteria are met, the payment is sent to the World Bank's Pandemic Emergency Financing Facility to fund relief efforts.

Triggers for the two classes of bonds

The two tranches of pandemic bonds represent different risks of contagion. The World Bank offered $225 million worth of Class A debt, which pay out 6.9% annually. The bonds default if pandemic-related deaths reach 2,500 in a single nation with an additional 20 or more deaths confirmed in an overseas country, according to the bank's prospectus.

The Class B bonds have a lower bar for the debt to trigger and accordingly boast a higher interest rate, since holders are assuming more risk. The bonds pay 11.5% annually, but reach default after 250 deaths. The bonds' payout rate scales with the number of additional countries that experience than 20 confirmed deaths. The World Bank issued $95 million worth of the Class B assets.

"Do not hang noodles on my ears" = Đừng để tôi nghe mùi mì tôm -> Đừng cố gắng đánh lạc hướng/lừa tôi.

Ví dụ
“Sorry, but I don't believe someone could learn so much Welsh in such a short amount of time. Do not hang noodles on my ears, Carol,” one person responded.

“Don’t hang noodles on my ears, bitch. Don’t fuck with me. You tricked Filipinos with money. I said I will pursue this if this is the only thing I can achieve in this administration. I will really run after them, economic plunder”.

Much better known was the idiom used by Mikhail Gorbachev, just after the 1991 coup, when parliament speaker Anatoly Lukyanov, an old friend from college, tried to convince him he had played no part in it. "Don't hang noodles on my ears," Gorbachev snapped. In other words, "don't pull the wool over my eyes", or "don't pull my leg".

"The goose hangs high" = Con ngỗng bay cao (khi gặp thời tiết đẹp) -> Mọi điều đều rất tốt đẹp, êm ả, như mong muốn và cảm thấy vui phơi phới.

Ví dụ
“...but we’re not gonna shut down Jim Brown, boys. Not with one tackler. We’re gonna have to swarm him. We’ll slow him down. We’ll go right at him when we’ve got the ball. He’s not a great defensive player. We’ll tire him out. We won’t stop him. We’ll outscore him. This game can put us right back where we belong, with the best teams in the country.

The Spaniard has cult-hero status in South Wales after his performances in a white shirt. Unfortunately, injury saw him hang up his boots early, and he is now forging a career in football off the pitch.

The experienced centre-back has hung up his boots at the age of 35 after making 425 appearances in his career. His most recent club was Southend United but he left the League One side at the end of January after playing just once since moving to Roots Hall last summer.

He announced his retirement (nghỉ hưu, giải nghệ) via a statement on Twitter saying: “Football has given me the best life any little boy could wish for. There have been some massive highs and lows but now it’s time to hang up my boots and move on to the next chapter of my career.”

Ví dụ
Yet they managed to track down all the long boards, allowing Pearl's team to hang tough on the glass against the team with the nation's No. 1 rebounding differential. That in turn gave them second and third chances down floor, and allowed Auburn to take a 41-39 lead into the break.

Babazorros had to hang tough on a few occasions and were understandably second best in terms of possession and chances created in Andalusia, but they looked on course to pinch all three points 20 minutes from time after Joselu followed up a set-piece to stab home his ninth league goal of the campaign.

When former Vice President Joe Biden, the current democratic front-runner, recently challenged the notion that China was going to “eat our lunch”—an apparent attempt to express confidence in U.S. workers—he found himself under assault from Trump and Democrats alike and quickly retreated, saying, “We are in competition with China” and “need to get tough.” In the Senate, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other leading Democrats have called on the administration to “stay aggressive” in trade negotiations. When Trump recently threatened to escalate tariffs on China as part of his trade war, falsely claiming that China was bearing most of the costs of the tariffs (thuế quan), Schumer not only declined to correct him, but also tweeted, “Hang tough on China, President @realDonaldTrump. Don’t back down.”

Get Me Out of Here! While taking part on the show, former EastEnders actress Jacqueline made no secret of her fandom of Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kylie.

In my early twenties, I was a friend-making machine. I was the president of my 120-person sorority (hội nữ sinh) in college and spent very few hours of any day alone. When I moved to New York City after graduation, I joined sports teams and went to meetups and had something called friendship circles, with different groups of people to hang out with whenever I wanted a full social calendar.
