"Touch your forelock" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Noah Grezlak

"Touch (one's) forelock (quan sát, cảnh giới, thấy trước) " = Thể hiện sự tôn kính/chiếu cố với người có quyền thế cao và bề trên.

Ví dụ
Touch your forelock and I will look after you'. "However the quality of life and the terms and conditions that the workers had was second to none (có một không hai).

Bruce fell for Olivia in the late 1960s after she was a support act for The Shadows, Cliff Richard’s backing band. He went on to date her for five years with the pair even becoming engaged. Despite Olivia ending things, the pair have stayed on friendly terms. “I’m thrilled for her,” says Bruce. “As a mere OBE myself, I will have to doff my cap (tháo/cởi mũ), touch my forelock and bow next time I see her. Maybe I’ll learn to curtsy (khẽ nhún đầu gối cúi chào).”

To which I say – You big lying liars. You can’t lie to us at The Irish Times, you lying liars. We have the data. You love reading about the royals. The royals infuriate (làm tức điên lên) you, but they also confuse you, like a sexy arrogant lead from a 1990s rom com. You hate them, but you also want them to grind you under their heel and to speak to you in crisp posh vowels while you touch your forelock and utter something quaint (là lạ, kỳ quặc) and agricultural from deep in the mud. You liars.

"The common touch" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Pascal Bernardon

"The common touch" = Khả năng của cải hoặc vật chất mà có sức lôi cuốn con người; chỉ những người nổi tiếng/quyền lực có thể nói chuyện, xã giao tốt với người bình thường.

Ví dụ
Kevin Warren spoke extemporaneously (tùy ứng, ứng khẩu, ngẫu ứng), and with passion. He made eye contact and called people by name. He championed students, women and minorities. He is a big-league athletic commissioner with the common touch, which might make him one of a kind.

In its heyday (tuổi thanh xuân, thời hoàng kim) it appealed to the upwardly mobile and the less so but as the LMS controller of hotels remarked: "We must not confuse them with the class of people who will be using the hotel... We must walk with kings in the hotel but not lose the common touch in the bar".

Admiral Victor Bordson, several years his junior, was, in Picard’s estimation (sự đánh giá, ước lượng), a careful man. Picard did not mean this pejoratively (có nghĩa xấu, miệt thị); quite the contrary. Rather, he considered Bordson to be a man who took care: measured, disinclined (không thích) to make rash (thiếu suy nghĩ, vội vàng) decisions, somewhat impersonal (nói trống, bâng quơ, không liên quan tới ai) and lacking the common touch.

"Remain in touch" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Rod Long

"Remain in touch" = Vẫn giữ liên lạc/tương tác với ai.

Ví dụ
Mendoza said he and other county officials remain in touch with others across the state to continue to monitor for the virus. Taking steps such as washing your hands and covering your cough, Mendoza says, are important ways to prevent the spread of germs (sự lây lan của vi khuẩn).

Conversely, augmented reality has been gaining steady traction (sức kéo, sự bám). This is because unlike virtual reality, the technology allows users to stay in touch with their surroundings, ‘augmenting’ digital information into the world around them as opposed to taking users out of it.

The first phase of a court hearing of a US request for Meng's extradition (sự dẫn độ (phạm nhân bỏ trốn qua nước khác)) as held earlier this month, and is scheduled to resume in April. Kovrig and Spavor, meanwhile, remain in China's opaque penal system (hệ thống hình sự không rõ ràng, mờ ám). Champagne's office said he also raised the plight (cam kết, sự khó khăn, tuyệt vọng) of the detained Canadians with Wang, adding: "The two agreed to remain in touch on issues of mutual importance."

"Kick into touch" nghĩa là gì?


"Kick (something) into touch" = Đá văng cái gì ra/đá bóng ra ngoài đường biên -> Ngăn cản cái gì xảy ra/thành công; trì hoãn kế hoạch/hành động.

Ví dụ
But The Sun newspaper exclusively brings you a revolutionary eating plan to help you kick it into touch – or stop you developing the condition in the first place.

It’s Machenaud!! He turns it over in midfield and they kick it into touch. France have won - out of the fire! And there’s a blue after the whistle. So much emotion on show, and the melee diffuses. What a dramatic conclusion!! What an incredible, topsy-turvy contest (cuộc thi đảo lộn, đảo điên)!

This is where it becomes so critical that the PSO, we need a result from that as fast as possible, or even just kick it into touch and let's just get on with life again, get Aurigny back up and running. Then we'd have the three dorniers, because they're suggesting at the moment two dorniers for next year which is just not going to work for two sectors, that'll be detrimental (thiệt hại, bất lợi) to tourism and business again.

"I wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole" nghĩa là gì?


"I wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole" = Không can thiệp, dính dáng tới ai/cái gì dù với bất kì lý do nào.

Ví dù
Most stocks I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole at this kind of premium but MAIN is well worth a premium because it is such a premium BDC.

He left it in the capable hands of Ty Pendergrass, but Thad was willing to do anything to help preserve the cemetery (nghĩa địa). He even went so far as doing something I wouldn’t touch “with a ten-foot pole.” In 2007, he portrayed his grandfather, R. H. Miller in our annual Ghost Walk.

I don’t really know if I’m a good Crucible player in Destiny 2 or not. You could look at my kill/death ratio I suppose, but it wouldn’t give you much in the way of meaningful information. Right now it’s abysmal, because I’ve been trying to earn the Season of Dawn pinnacle weapon by rolling around with the kinetic linear fusion rifle Arbalest, a weapon I wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole otherwise. Before that it was scout rifles, which I actually sort of like, but they’re specialized enough that I really shouldn’t have been using them on any of the maps I was. Last year it was hand cannons, which are a nightmare to use on console.

"Have a touch of the tar brush" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Alvin Balemesa

"Have a touch of the tar brush" = bị phết hắc ín -> Sự gièm pha/nói xấu chủng tộc lai trộn hoặc người có hai dòng máu, như chê da họ rất đen hơn so với người da trắng.

Ví dụ
Common view. So, just what wit are we missing? Jeez mate, you keep wearing shirts like that, I’ll think you’re a pillow-biter. Wow, check the tits on the new secretary, wouldn’t kick her out of bed for farting. Mate, don’t be surprised if that new fella goes walkabout - I think he’s got a touch of the tar brush.

Over the years, I heard about other mixed-race friends getting called white-washed, Oreos, Twinkies, and other puerile slurs. I was somewhat darkly tickled to learn that there’s a racial slur (sự gièm pha, nói xấu) for someone of my heritage: “You’ve got a touch of the tar brush.” According to Wikipedia, this slur denotes: “Real or suspected African or Asian distant ancestry in a person of predominantly (phần lớn, chủ yếu) Caucasian ancestry (tổ tiên).” Aren’t racists creative?

Rumours swirled around him. He was said to have "a touch of the tar brush" – in fact, he was born in Fiji to South Australian parents. And then there was his sexuality. The South Australian Chief Justice, John Jefferson Bray, was gay, too. A series of unexplained murders in Adelaide was linked to a clique (bọn, tụi, bè lũ) of highly placed paedophiles (người có quan hệ tình dục với trẻ em; kẻ ấu dâm). That conspiracy theory (thuyết âm mưu) is still being peddled (kháo chuyện, bận tâm về những chuyện lặt vặt) today.

"Golden touch" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Paz Arando

"Golden touch" = cái chạm tay biến thành vàng -> Khả năng kiếm được rất nhiều tiền hoặc mọi sự cố gắng đều dẫn đến thành công. Cụm từ này bắt nguồn từ thần thoại Hy Lạp nói về vua Midas, người có khả năng làm bất kỳ thứ gì ông chạm vào đều biến thành vàng.

Ví dụ
Paisley para table tennis star Martin Perry finds golden touch at Polish Open. The talented table tennis player is hoping to qualify for the Paralympic Games in Tokyo later this year.

“I was at my restaurant in Dubai and had planned to make a video of my tomahawk steak,” he told The Post in 2018 when he opened his Midtown steakhouse. “I wanted it to look like salt was coming from the sky. It was my golden touch.” The father of 12, who boasts 25.9 million followers on his celeb-studded Instagram profile, now runs 21 restaurants around the world.

Here comes an update for Fortnite Chapter 2, bringing with it Season 2, where we have new challenges, such as taking down henchmen (tay sai, người hậu cần), disguising yourself as them, looting in particular locations on the map, and much more. The new season is all about secret agents and spies, and the head agent is Midas, who has a golden touch about him, which fits his name perfectly.

"Touch on the raw" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Yoann Boyer

"Touch (one) on the raw" = Chạm vào vết thương của ai -> chạm nọc ai, chạm tự ái của ai, làm động lòng ai; nói phải vấn đề nhạy cảm khiến đối phương tức giận/tự ái.

Ví dụ
"While collaboration apps, chat and email may be fine for letting a colleague know you want to schedule a few minutes to touch them on the raw they're not the appropriate medium for the conversation itself."

He added that Sirisena briefed the cabinet about “important matters”, including his meeting with Modi on the sidelines of the BIMSTEC summit in Nepal. While Abeysinghe did not touch on the RAW allegation or the Colombo port discussion, a separate statement issued by the President’s Media division (PMD) gave more details.

Wednesday the 15th features a truth-telling Scorpio moon that’s good for digging down to the root of an ongoing problem. Make transportation adjustments if you need to. If someone doesn’t want to touch the raw on Thursday the 16th, respect their preference. However, if you are open to doing the work, Thursday allows you to address past pains and mental disturbances.

Eric Schmidt cũng đã biết sợ rồi

thú nhận rằng, các doanh nhân khởi nghiệp công nghệ ở Silicon Valley ko phải "tự thân" đâu, mà phần lớn nhận tiền tài trợ từ quỹ khoa học quốc gia và bộ quốc phòng (darpa - cơ quan chỉ đạo các dự án nghiên cứu quốc phòng tiên tiến)

và sợ rằng mỹ sẽ thua cuộc chiến công nghệ với tq nếu không có sự giúp đỡ từ chính phủ liên bang, kêu gọi 'chính phủ cần quay lại cuộc chơi một cách nghiêm túc hơn' (the government needs to get back in the game in a serious way).

đề nghị quốc hội phê duyệt 
./ đề xuất của tổng thống về số tiền tài trợ NCPT quốc phòng lớn nhất trong 70 năm qua, (President Trump’s FY 2021 Budget invests $142.2 billion in Federal research and development (R&D), a 6 percent increase over his FY 2020 budget.)
-----

We can’t win the technology wars without the federal government’s help.

Important trends (các xu hướng quan trọng) are not in our favor (không ủng hộ chúng ta). America’s lead (sự dẫn đầu) in artificial intelligence (trí tuệ nhân tạo), for example, is precarious (bấp bênh). A.I. will open new frontiers in everything from biotechnology (công nghệ sinh học) to banking (ngân hàng), and it is also a Defense Department priority (ưu tiên của bộ quốc phòng). Leading the world in A.I. is essential (tối quan trọng) to growing our economy and protecting our security (an ninh). A recent study considering more than 100 metrics finds that the United States is well ahead of China today but will fall behind in five to 10 years. China also has almost twice as many supercomputers and about 15 times as many deployed 5G base stations as the United States. If current trends continue, China’s overall investments in research and development are expected to surpass those of the United States within 10 years, around the same time its economy is projected to become larger than ours.

Unless these trends change, in the 2030s we will be competing with a country that has a bigger economy, more research and development investments, better research, wider deployment of new technologies and stronger computing infrastructure...

Dr. Schmidt is the chairman of the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence and the Defense Innovation Board. He is the former chairman and C.E.O. of Google.

Sheryl Sandberg đã biết sợ rồi

sợ rằng tiktok lớn quá nhanh so với facebook ở cùng thời điểm, và đó mới là nơi mọi người phải e ngại về sự riêng tư, bảo mật dữ liệu
-----

"In the world of tech we compete for every minute of your attention. Every day you pick up your phone, I mean my kids pick up the phone and they're on TikTok," she said.

TikTok hit 1.5 billion downloads in November last year and was the third most-downloaded non-gaming app of 2019, outperforming both Facebook and Instagram.

TikTok's format has been seen by some as an antidote to apps like Instagram, which encourage users to craft the perfect picture over authenticity (tính chân thật, mức độ chân thực). Snap CEO Evan Spiegel said in January he thinks TikTok could overtake Instagram because it relies on "talent" rather than social posturing (lấy dáng, làm điệu bộ, làm dáng).

The app's parent firm is Chinese giant ByteDance. "They're a Chinese company, if people are concerned about data I think there's a lot to be concerned about there," Sandberg said.

"Angel in the house" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: Becca Tapert on Unsplash

"Angel in the house" = thiên thần trong nhà -> nghĩa là người vợ bao dung, yêu thương, quan tâm tới chồng con, hết lòng với gia đình.

Ví dụ
Eliza Scanlen’s Beth is everything an angel in the house should be—sweet and meek, far more static and sedate than her counterparts (bản sao) in a way that subtly (phảng phất) signals her character’s fate (số phận).

The young angel in the house, my wife in the house. My daughter was in the house. He and his two baby who are angels and he just came and shoot up with no sort of sense.

Sometimes women are cast in less exalted (cao thượng) roles – women as sexual temptresses (cám dỗ), pulling men down from the spiritual heights into the flesh. Victorian women were cast in the role of “angel in the house” and encouraged to be delicate (thanh nhã, thanh tú, tinh tế) and dependent (phụ thuộc).
