"Flash into view" nghĩa là lóe lên, vụt qua trong tầm nhìn (vật gì đó chuyển động rất nhanh).

Ví dụ
Baily's Beads are visible (nhìn thấy được), and are well worth photographing, but there is no corona, and no prominences (nổi bật, nhô lên) flash into view.

Almost every moment was spent in capturing (chụp ảnh) insects (côn trùng) on the wing or in sitting on a perch (đậu trên sào) watching for them to flash into view.

At the 1868 eclipse (nhật thực) in India, as the solar photosphere (quyển sáng của mặt trời) was covered, a myriad (vô số) of bright lines appeared to flash into view.

A competing (ganh đua) image of my wife and son flash into view. It is Halloween, and my son is dressed in a miniature set of camouflage (ngụy trang). He has my name tape Velcroed to his chest. Deanna's getting him ready to go trick-or-treating.

"Have a ringside view" là có được hàng ghế đẹp nhất để ngồi xem, rừ "ringside" là hàng ghế đầu được đặt xung quanh vòng thi đấu boxing ("boxing ring") ->ghế đẹp, view đẹp/ cái nhìn gần nhất với một tình huống hoặc sự kiện.

Ví dụ
While it was difficult to watch her teammates, sitting on the sidelines provided Gunderson with a ringside view of wrestling (môn đấu vật).

As the nine-time general secretary (tổng thư ký) of the party, he was a constant (vững vàng) and calming (bình tĩnh) presence through the ups and downs of the DMK. He also had a ringside view of the happenings inside the State assembly (quốc hội) as an eight-time MLA.

As non-executive director (giám đốc không điều hành) of the Tata Sons board (hội đồng quản trị) since 2016, industrialist (nhà tư bản công nghiệp) Ajay Piramal has had a ringside view of the shakeup (cải tổ) at the Tata Group, with the removal of Cyrus Mistry as chairman (chủ tịch) in October 2016.

"With a view to" nghĩa là gì?

Vì mục tiêu mà liều mình chiến đấu. Photo by Patrick Case from Pexels

"With a view to (doing something)" nghĩa là với mục đích, mong muốn, mục tiêu làm gì trong tương lai.

Ví dụ
Real Madrid 'are keeping tabs on Mauricio Pochettino' with a view to potentially replacing (khả năng thay thế) Zinedine Zidane in the summer.

Non-league striker (tiền đạo) Tyger Smalls recently spent five days training at Arsenal with a view to earning a dream transfer (chuyển nhượng).

Sunderland have taken Blackburn Rovers striker Chanka Zimba on trial (thử nghiệm), with a view to a permanent deal (thỏa thuận lâu dài). The 18-year-old was on the bench (dự bị) for Sunderland Under-23's 2-0 defeat to Wigan Atheltic in the Premier League Cup on Monday evening.

Or he could do as President Donald Trump is urging him to do, not to mention Jill Stein and thousands of bots on Twitter: Continue his doomed campaign for the nomination (bổ nhiệm), not with a view to winning, but with a view to inflicting (gây ra) as much damage (thiệt hại) as possible on Joe Biden.

"In view of (something) " = trong cái nhìn của -> bởi vì cái gì, xem xét cái gì. 

Ví dụ
Bangladesh announces cancellation (hủy bỏ) of flights to India in view of Coronavirus.

The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) has introduced a facility (điều kiện thuận lợi) to cancel pre-booked tickets (vé đặt trước) for special darshan, sevas and accommodation (chỗ ở) in view of the coronavirus scare.

In view of the spread of coronavirus in the country, the Puducherry Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi would not hold open house sessions (hội nghị), meetings of the visitors (khách) and public appointments (gặp mặt) in her office for two weeks. 

The Bank of Japan is considering downgrading (hạ cấp) its assessment (đánh giá) of the country’s economy at its upcoming policy (chính sách) meeting next week in view of the deepening economic impact (tác động kinh tế sâu sắc) of the globally spreading new coronavirus, according to sources close to the matter.

"In full view" nghĩa là gì?

Tai mắt ở khắp mọi nơi. Photo by Scott Webb from Pexels

"In full view (of someone/ something)" = nhìn toàn cảnh -> bị nhìn thấy toàn bộ một cách dễ dàng và rõ ràng.

Ví dụ
A frisky (nghịch ngợm) couple were filmed getting intimate (thân mật) on a buoy (phao cứu đắm) in full view of shocked beachgoers.

Police in Durham Region say they are looking for a suspect (nghi phạm) who allegedly (cho là) set a parked tow truck (xe kéo) on fire along a residential street in Ajax last month, in full view of the truck’s dashboard (hộp đen) camera.

Trump's support in the country as a whole is only 43.4 percent in the FiveThirtyEight average, but he is still well positioned (vị trí thuận lợi) to win reelection (tái bầu cử), because most people seem to care a lot more about the strength of the stock market (thị trường chứng khoán) than about the strength of our democracy (nền dân chủ). This is how democracies die — not in darkness but in full view of a public that couldn’t care less.

"Fade from view" nghĩa là gì?

Dải ngân hà là thứ gì đó chỉ được nhìn qua ảnh. Photo by Hristo Fidanov from Pexels

"Fade from view" = biến mất khỏi tầm nhìn -> mờ dần, dần dần biến mất (do ánh sáng hoặc khoảng cách).

Ví dụ
This cosmic wonder (kỳ quan vũ trụ) doesn't have a long lifespan (tuổi thọ), though. Its hourglass (đồng hồ cát) shape will only last about 10,000 years. And one day, the star will cool down, causing its hourglass form to fade from view.

For years, the Chargers have failed (thất bại) to make their way to the summit in the AFC West despite having plenty of talent on the roster (bảng phân công) on both sides of the ball. In fact, it’s become normal for NFL analysts (nhà phân tích) to predict (dự đoán) the Chargers will “win the West” on an annual basis only to see them fade from view at some point before the season’s end.

The European Commission (Ủy ban Châu Âu) is looking to Australia as it considers pulling spot foreign exchange (ngoại hối) into Mifid II, the regime (chế độ) that exists for equities (cổ phiếu), bonds (trái phiếu) and derivatives (phái sinh) – a radical change that industry lawyers and lobbyists (nhà vận động hành lang) have been hoping would fade from view, following intense criticism (chỉ trích dữ dội).

"Be on view" nghĩa là gì?

Nghệ thuật tinh túy này liệu còn mấy ai quan tâm? Photo by Una Laurencic from Pexels

"Be/go on view" nghĩa là nhìn thấy được, hiển thị, công khai.

Ví dụ
A recently discovered (phát hiện) Artemisia Gentileschi painting went on view in London.

This exhibition (triển lãm) is on view Mon., Thu. -Sat. 10 a.m. -6, Tue. and Wed. 11 a.m. -6, Sun. 12-5.

In December, Sotheby’s sold another of her works, a painting featuring a female martyr (đọa đầy, hành hạ), for £187,500 ($243,000). The painting was acquired (mua lại) by Sweden’s Nationalmuseum, where it went on view late last month.

Postcards (bưu thiếp) from the Afterlife Alex Cooper Among the many ways in which Dante is on view in this volume - plays, films, cartoons, paintings, drawings, engraving (điêu khắc) - none is perhaps more simple, nor more personal, than the humble (khiêm tốn) postcard.

"As far as is concerned" nghĩa là gì?

Cứ như này thì làm sao tránh được virus! Photo by Negative Space from Pexels

"As far as (someone or something) is concerned" = theo những gì mà ai/điều gì đang lo ngại -> trong phạm vi ai/điều gì chịu ảnh hưởng, liên quan đến ai/vấn đề gì, cho thấy sự quan tâm về về ai/điều gì.

Ví dụ
The Inditrade Capital group chairman (chủ tịch) says it is a great opportunity to buy a bank like ICICI at current level when pretty much everything is gloom and doom (u ám, ảm đạm) as far as private sector banks are concerned.

As far as the rest of the state is concerned with these social distancing (tách biệt xã hội) plans, the Governor is strongly encouraging the suspension (ngưng) of large gatherings (tụ tập), meaning 250 or more people. He’s discouraging (không khuyến khích) residents from doing recreational activities (hoạt động giải trí) in areas where many people gather, such as attending movie theaters, gyms, and shopping malls.

“I have made the decision to postpone (hoãn lại) all permitted (được cho phép) public events until further notice,” Broome said in an online address this morning. “As far as private gatherings (tụ tập cá nhân) are concerned, many have already postponed out of an abundance of caution (thận trọng). I support those actions and encourage other private events to make the same considerations (cân nhắc).”

"Heave into view" nghĩa là gì?

Bạn đã đi ô-tô điện bao giờ chưa? Photo by Pok Rie from Pexels

"Heave into view" hoặc "heave in sight" nghĩa là hiện ra, thấy được.

Ví dụ
The newest addition (bổ sung) to the city's water distribution system (hệ thống phân phối nước) heaved into view Tuesday morning, advancing (tăng lên) 7 inches at a time up the 140-foot concrete pedestal (cột bê tông) behind Cornerstone Market Place.

The initial extra investment (khoản đầu tư thêm) will be paid back over time, and I genuinely (thực sự) believe that, all things being equal, electric cars will hold their value better as the end of the internal combustion engine (động cơ đốt trong) starts to heave into sight.

The reason for Scindia’s departure (rời đi) is obviously the search for paths to self-aggrandisement (tự nâng cao địa vị), but the conditions under which Scindia has taken this route have been created by the Congress ‘high command’ (chỉ huy cấp cao của Quốc hội) or whatever passes for it. The Congress is in free fall (rơi tự do) and unless it does something drastic (quyết liệt), the party will be over long before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections heave into view.

"Keep in view" nghĩa là gì?

Kiểm soát không được lại đi nhốt người ta. Photo by Emre Can from Pexels

"Keep (somebone /something) in view" = giữ trong tầm nhìn -> luôn để mắt đến ai/cái gì.

Ví dụ
We are likewise to keep in view, that very little progress (tiến triển) could be made in the arts, except by men who lived under a supreme (tối cao) controlling power in some one or other of the political institutions (tổ chức chính trị) which I have already illustrated (minh họa).

Caroline watched as War Eagle built a small fire, no doubt to provide light during the blackest phase (giai đoạn) of the new moon. Perhaps he only wanted to make sure he could keep her in view all night. He needn't worry, she told herself, as this was not an opportune time (thời cơ) to risk an escape (trốn thoát).

In 2004, Dhananjoy Chatterjee, 39, was hanged (treo cổ) at the Alipore jail (nhà tù) in Calcutta for a similar crime—the rape (cưỡng bức) and murder (giết) of a minor at her home in 1990. He was a guard of the apartment where the girl lived. “The courts must not only keep in view the rights of the criminal (quyền của tội phạm) but also the rights of the victim (nạn nhân) of a crime and society (xã hội) at large while considering (xem xét) the imposition (áp đặt) of appropriate punishment (hình phạt thích đáng)”.

Jim Mattis thực sự nghĩ gì về Donald Trump?

nguồn: nytimes,

Ngọc Tài dịch, Quỳnh Anh hiệu đính,

Giữa năm đầu tiên đầy hỗn loạn trong sự nghiệp làm Tổng thống, Trump tới dự buổi họp tại
Lầu Năm Góc với Bộ trưởng Quốc phòng James Mattis và Ngoại trưởng Rex Tillerson. Hai thành viên nội các đã lên kế hoạch “chỉ dẫn tường tận cho Tổng thống” về tầm quan trọng của việc trung thành với các đối tác và đồng minh của Mỹ vào thời điểm Trump đang xem thường NATO. Nhưng cuộc họp nhanh chóng mất kiểm soát, Guy M. Snodgrass, người phụ trách diễn văn phát biểu cho Mattis, hồi tưởng lại trong cuốn “Holding the Line: Inside Trump’s Pentagon With Secretary Mattis.” (tạm dịch: “Cầm cự: Bên trong Lầu năm góc của Trump với Bộ trưởng Mattis.”) Trump buồn chán và mất tập trung, cau có khoanh tay trước ngực, bác bỏ thông tin vừa tiếp nhận, nói rằng chính các đồng minh của nước Mỹ đang xé toạc liên minh, lạc đề sang thắc mắc có ai thấy cái bắt tay hung hăng của tổng thống Pháp hay không, rồi vô tư hào hứng về cuộc diễu binh ngày Quốc khánh ở Pháp — và yêu cầu có diễu hành cho riêng mình vào dịp lễ “Ngày Chiến thắng”, đòi có cả xe tăng đi quanh Washington

“Cả hai người — Mattis và Tillerson — đều chán nản,” Snodgrass viết. “Chúng tôi vừa trải qua một cuộc họp với Trump, trực diện và trực tiếp. Giờ thì chúng tôi hiểu vì sao việc tiếp cận (tổng thống) bị kiểm soát chặt chẽ đến vậy. Suốt phần còn lại của cuộc họp, Tổng thống Trump

"Grow by leaps and bounds" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: Pedro Kümmel on Unsplash

"Grow by leaps and bounds" có từ leap và bound là nhảy vọt -> cụm từ này nghĩa là lớn lên, phát triển nhanh chóng, giống câu "lớn nhanh như thổi" đó các bạn.

Ví dụ
As the area continues to grow by leaps and bounds, it’s hard to miss the unmistakable red clay (đất sét) and construction cones on any given road, on any given day. Madison and Huntsville are on the fast track of redefining our communities, one slab of cement at a time.

“I think it's fitting that it's on leap day as our city continues to grow by leaps and bounds,” said Mayor (thị trưởng) Cory Glassburn. Mayor Glassburn says this project has been in the process for quite some time. “City Council members have put the city in a great position financially to be able to do this for the fire department and the community,” said Mayor Glassburn.

Kiyan continues to grow by leaps and bounds. La La Anthony talked about her son’s maturity (trưởng thành) during a recent interview with InStyle. “I’m always making sure Kiyan’s on the right track, and we have a great relationship because he respects me,” La La told the magazine’s readers.

"Good egg" nghĩa là gì?

"Good egg" = quả trứng tốt -> nghĩa là người tốt bụng, đáng tin cậy.

Ví dụ
'I'm such a good egg': Former drug addict Hayley Vernon breaks down and tearfully (phát khóc) defends herself in front of other couples at Married At First Sight's first commitment ceremony.

Ray/Bloodshot’s new condition (tình trạng) has left him with memory loss, and he has no idea if there’s anyone out there in the world who cares about him. KT ensures him there is, because she’s a good egg.

She is very talented for her age, you would see her on the pitch and not expect to see her dominate people physically the way she does. To see her play the way she does, you wouldn’t think she’s the age she is – she’s a really good egg! She has got her head switched on and is a grafter (người làm việc cật lực, chăm chỉ).

"Black-hat hacker" nghĩa là gì?

Chúc mừng! Bạn đã bị tấn công! Photo by Saksham Choudhary from Pexels

"Black-hat hacker" là những hacker mũ đen đem về nhiều lợi ích cho mình nhất từ những kỹ thuật mà họ học được. Ngược lại những hacker nào đem kỹ năng của mình để giúp cho người khác thì được gọi là hacker mũ trắng ("white-hat hacker). "Black hat" nói chung là kẻ xấu, nhân vật phản diện, trái ngược với "white hat".

Ví dụ
Similar to the ‘white hat’ and ‘black hat’ hackers scenario (kịch bản), PR has its own legitimate (hợp pháp, chính đáng)— and not-so-legitimate — practices. Although PR should be an ethical (đạo đức) practice, this isn’t always the case.

Kevin Mitnick is an American computer security consultant (chuyên gia bảo mật), author, and a black hat turned white hat hacker. He’s best known for his high-profile arrest (vụ bắt giữ nổi tiếng) in 1995 by the FBI for his various black hat escapades (đào tẩu).

“In 2013, I developed a platform (nền tảng) for security research (nghiên cứu bảo mật) through which penetration (thâm nhập) test can be done for phones and computers,” Algangaf said. “It contained concepts (chứa khái niệm) that could benefit from a controlled domain (kiểm soát miền). As for the fact that unlawful (bất hợp pháp) attacks were carried out on others, it is impossible because I simply have no interest in blackhat [activities].”

"Get your kit off" nghĩa là gì?

"Get your kit off" = Cởi hết quần áo/bộ đồ ra.

Ví dụ
Given you’re unlikely to get your kit off in a cafe, hackers are less of a concern here — so just the inevitable rise of the machines to worry about then.

There's also a strict participation-only rule - if you don't plan to get your kit off, don't come along. Ready to take part? Join the 1,300 other people interested on the Facebook event.

After cancelling their annual Nude Year’s Eve dinner due to fire, Bermagui’s nudists, the Armands Bay Leisure Group, which frequents the only legal clothing-optional beach from Nowra to the Victorian border, Armands Bay, is keen to go ahead with their Family Fun In The Sun day, scheduled for Sunday, 8th March. “We welcome new faces and there’s no pressure to get your kit off, it’s clothing-optional,” says club president Errol Masterson. This year, the Bermagui group have had trouble finding someone to lead the games and activities on the day, so the ACT Nudist club has stepped in, providing an experienced facilitator and attending en masses themselves to support their coastal counterpart.

"Get my hopes up" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Corinne Kutz

"Get (one's) hopes up" = Dấy lên niềm hy vọng cho ai về điều gì; trở nên hào hứng và đầy niềm tin vào điều gì.

Ví dụ
“Jay and I are not dating,” Caves wrote in the post. “She’s one of my best friends. I’m sorry to get your hopes up! That would be a great story.”

“For the majority of time I was in the hospital, I felt just fine, so it was crazy to me that the virus was still in me. I was still testing positive. Every time I would get my hopes up and then they would be dashed. It was like that over and over again, so that was really mentally and emotionally draining,” Rebecca said.

“Everyone didn’t know what they were doing and it was all over the place,” Nelson said. “A little crazy.” Nelson, like Kaut, remembers coming to the Centralia College all-star game in junior high and as a freshman and sophomore to cheer on her upperclassmen teammates from Mossyrock that were competing. When she got the text from Moorcroft inviting her to the LCC game, it was unexpected. “I didn’t get my hopes up but I was like, ‘That’d be so cool if I did it,’” Nelson said.

"Vantage point" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Matt Seymour on Unsplash.

'Vantage point' = vantage-ground có từ vantage là lợi thế, ưu thế -> cụm từ này nghĩa là cao điểm khống chế; thế lợi, ưu thế.

Ví dụ
How dire is the situation right now from your vantage point? Right now, we’re at a critical inflection point. We’re in a pandemic, but we don’t yet have our hospital inundated with patients. We have a lot of recommendations going out there in an attempt to “flatten the curve” through aggressive social distancing measures (các biện pháp cách ly xã hội quyết liệt).

Snodgrass, a former Navy fighter pilot who worked in Mattis’s office from the spring of 2017 until the summer of 2018, has stepped forward to fill some of the vacuum created by Mattis’s silence. To be sure, his vantage point was limited: He never accompanied Mattis to an Oval Office meeting, arrived at his job after Mattis had already dissuaded Trump from reviving a torture program and left before Mattis resigned in the wake of Trump’s December 2018 announcement of a Syria withdrawal.

The enemy was seen retreating and all the threats of the commandos did not help. Aftab picked up the light machine gun in his hand, got out from the trench, kept advancing and came to the edge of the high ground. He was still causing heavy casualties on the fleeing enemy. It appeared his only mission was to destroy the enemy and he did not care to save his own life. He exposed himself to the enemy by going forward and firing on them from a vantage ground. Suddenly a burst of bullet hit Aftab's chest and he shouted, “I have been hit”, and fell to the ground.

"Get hackles up" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Marvin Meyer

"Get (one's) hackles up" = Khiến ai xù lông -> làm ai nổi cáu.

Ví dụ
If you weren't already covering your eyes at the horrifying scene, make sure to get your hackles up the second Adrian's body enters the water.

Maybe Cal needs to revisit and reread his opinion pieces on Trump from early 2016 until today. Mr. Thomas has been second only to Hannity, or maybe Limbaugh, as Trump's lead explainer, apologist, water carrier and sycophant. Why, after all the immoral and unethical deeds Trump has committed, does he get his hackles up now?

As merely the next step in a path that has included Alex Gibney's superb The Armstrong Lie, a teary Oprah interview and a dozen smaller, incremental (tiền lời, lãi) mea culpas (tội lỗi, sai lầm), Zenovich's doc probably slots into a nebulous (u ám) middle ground as too lengthy and involved for people who didn't previously care about Lance Armstrong and too repetitive and familiar for anybody paying attention. For that demo, of which I'm squarely a part, Lance is just the latest reminder of how robotic and over-rehearsed Armstrong generally comes across and how the things that get his hackles up are perhaps the only changes.

"Get freak on" nghĩa là gì?

"Get freak on" = Nổi cơn bốc đồng, điên dại/hành xử thiếu kiểm soát; làm tình.

Ví dụ
Morningside students get freak on for nation's fiercest founding father.

Why didn't they didn't get Freak on a Leash to play over the COD trailer?

The few who have seen it say that the tape is right up there with the Citizen Kane of booty-tastic homemade porn. That's right - the Iggy-Ig video is reportedly on par with the Kim Kardashian sex tape. Having seen all that's done for Kim's career, how can Iggy deny her fans the chance to see her get freak on?

"Get your finger out" nghĩa là gì?

Đang nghĩ về nước Mỹ. Photo by Tommy Lee Walker

"Get (one's) finger out" = Hiện nguyên hình luôn đi/cho thấy rõ hình dáng luôn -> Ngưng lại việc quanh co/trì trệ mà hãy làm ngay đi, hành động ngay đi; khích lệ ai bắt đầu nỗ lực làm việc.

Ví dụ
Come on Boris get your finger out and go and visit the poor souls who are flooded out by the policies of failure to dredge rivers. Even Gordon Brown got out and about. Some PM you are staying at home.

Martin Hamill, of Premier Cars NI, had urged the Stormont department responsible for MOT testing to “get your finger out” and take action to clear the lengthy waiting times – which in some cases stretch for over two months.

“We have to leave before the next EU budget or we will get stung.” And another reader said: “Are the negotiating teams infected or ill? If not business as usual. “Coronavirus has no impact on the talks.” Some criticised the Prime Minister for his current approach, with one person writing: “If we hadn’t dithered (rùng mình, lung lay) over the last three years, we might have been in a better position to deal with it. “Boris, get your finger out!”

"Get your feet under the table" nghĩa là gì?

Ngày đầu đi làm. Photo by  konstantinos Karasantes

"Get (one's) feet under the table" = Đặt chân xuống bàn -> Bắt đầu làm quen với công việc/chức vụ mới; sẵn sàng/tự tin với nhiệm vụ mới.

Ví dụ
Whether you’re in Stuttgart for a few hours on business, looking for a break from the kitchen table at home, or looking for a more permanent base to spark and develop your ideas, with considered design and a thoughtful approach to the new work environment, Urban Spaces has room for you to get your feet under the table.

"I tried to call on as many doorsteps as possible during my campaign and discovered there is quite a lot of concern about traffic, in particular in the rural villages and hamlets (xóm, làng nhỏ). "There's also concern about street lighting, which I'm told DDC is tackling, but once I've get my feet under the table, I'm sure I'll find out more.

But it’s tempting to wonder how differently things might have turned out if Milanic had been given the chance to get his feet under the table. And with Tuttomercatoweb reporting that the former Sturm Graz coach had identified a certain Josip Ilicic as one of his first transfer targets, he clearly had a nose for a diamond in the rough (kim cương chưa mài giũa nghĩa là chỉ người/vật chưa phát triển đầy đủ khả năng nhưng lại đầy triển vọng và thành công cho sau này).

"Get my eye" nghĩa là gì?

Nghe đồn ngắm zai đẹp tốt cho mắt! Photo by  Nathan Fertig

"Get my eye" = Bắt mắt -> Chỉ điều rất hấp dẫn/thu hút và gây sự chú ý cho bạn để nhìn ngắm nó.

Ví dụ
“It’s good for me because he’s done it for a while, he’s at the top and has won a lot of races. To be learning off him is the best thing I could do. “We went to Norwell a few days ago, Shane asked me to come just to help get my eye in and get focused for the Grand Prix.

“It’s about the guests really believing that they are in the courtyard of Hogwarts watching what is happening in the castle. We get your eye and your brain to believe that you are seeing inside the castle and that’s what makes it magic. We get you to believe that the castle is opening up and you are seeing the students dancing within it.”

The river sorts things by size, Maiklem says, so if you spot one pin, you're likely to find several all clustered (thành chùm, thành đám) together. That is, if you spot one. It takes a while to train yourself to spot things that aren't sand, mud (bùn) and pebbles (sỏi, đá cuội) — Maiklem calls it "getting your eye." Once you've spotted something, she says, it becomes a little easier to see similar objects. As we go along, I'm beginning to get my eye — I spot a substantial shard of green-glazed medieval pottery (đồ gốm thời Trung Cổ), and a chunk of a Roman heating duct, called a hypocaust (lò dưới sàn).

"Get your claws into" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  David Clode

"Get (one's) claws into" = Cào/xé ai -> Kiểm soát/điều khiển ai; dùng sức ảnh hưởng để ràng buộc/nắm ai trong tay.

Ví dụ
Stung by a scorpio (cung Hổ Cáp)? Ms T breaks down his charm and tells you how to get your claws into him.

Speaking of teenage moms, you recently took issue with Bristol Palin. Your blow-up — you said that you would like to have Bristol on The Talk because you “would love to get your claws into her” — made headlines.

In another interview with Cine Blitz, Raveena had even said that she would not hesitate to tell Rekha about her limits. "If this actress knows that we are together yet gets too close to Akshay, I will get my claws into her. But Akshay knows how to handle the situation I guess," she had said.

"Get your breath back" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by  Pavel Lozovikov

"Get (one's) breath back" = Lấy lại hơi thở của mình -> Có thể thở bình thường trở lại sau hoạt động nhiều/mất sức.

Ví dụ
“You could be going from a very heavy lunge (lao tới, hích vai) into rowing. And then while your heart rate’s elevated and you’re trying to get your breath back, all of a sudden you’re back on the reformer trying to hold a pike (cây giáo).”

“As soon as he hit me, I knew there was going to be damage because he hit me very hard, and it knocked my breath out, and after that I couldn’t get my breath back for quite a long time, and I knew I had a problem with my lung because I was in too much pain.

You'll leave dripping and ready to go again – the benefit of the Versaclimber is it gets your heart rate up but you’ll get your breath back almost immediately when you stop, Alex insists. He recommends pairing the workout with the studio’s 40-minute Strength & Conditioning class straight after – your legs will be tired but you’ll be fine to do weights. Prepare to hobble the next day.

"Get your arms around" nghĩa là gì?

Born to be WHAT? Photo by  Marvin Meyer

"Get (one's) arms around" = Quơ/đưa cánh tay xung quanh -> Biết/hiểu về điều gì rằng nó rất khó khăn, thách thức hoặc gây hoang mang và bối rối.

Ví dụ
“The scope of this story, frankly, is hard to get your arms around,” CNN’s Brian Stelter said on his Sunday “Reliable Sources” show. “That is a challenge for newsrooms like this one and many others. Right now, we need clear-eyed, no-nonsense news coverage during this crisis.”

Senator Bill Coleman (R) Ponca City said, “When I look at the statute (đạo luật, quy chế) I cannot get my arms around how this is legal according to state statute that clearly says a person must be deceased at least three years. And I watched the Daytona 500 Sunday and he looked to be alive and kicking quite well.”

“Otherwise, as I mentioned at our last meeting, we will leave $550,000 on the table if we decide to walk,” Gonzales said. “I understand, Mr. Kuckkahn, where you’re looking at these options. I think the council at its last meeting said that they supported moving forward — not all of them — with the regional landfill (bãi rác). It’s a mixed message here, but I understand you’re trying to get your arms around it, and I appreciate you doing that.”
