Vấn nạn đã tồn tại quá lâu rồi. Photo by Joe Piette

"Go beyond (something)" nghĩa là vượt lên, vượt qua (đi lại) hoặc vượt xa yêu cầu.

Ví dụ
“The report goes beyond a focus on COVID-19, taking a holistic (toàn diện) approach to health security in the region by continuing to fight AIDS, tuberculosis (bệnh lao) and malaria (sốt rét), which World Vision is pleased to see,” Mr Strong said.

Widespread use (sử dụng rộng rãi) of coronavirus-related loan forbearance (khất nợ) measures will affect structured finance (SF - cho vay theo nhu cầu) transactions (giao dịch) in ways that go beyond the initial risk of liquidity (thanh khoản) strain.

To understand the mayhem (tình trạng lộn xộn) on display in Minneapolis and other cities is not to condone (bỏ qua) it. It went beyond the death of one man who pleaded for his life — “I can’t breathe” — as an officer’s knee was pressed against his neck for more than eight excruciating minutes. It was about myriad (vô số) other times unarmed (không vũ trang) African American men have been killed at the hands of police. It was about the history of justice (công lý) that proved so maddeningly elusive (thoái thác), time after time, even in many of the egregious incidents (vụ việc nghiêm trọng) captured on video.

"Beyond words" nghĩa là gì?

"Beyond words" nghĩa là không nói nên lời, nghẹn ngào (vì xúc động).

Ví dụ
I am pained beyond words to learn about the tragic (thảm khốc) train accident in Aurangabad, Maharashtra.

I’m beyond words to express it. I love being in the military, I love working at Comcast, and to be honored like this is beyond words.

"Our community, especially our black community, is hurting beyond words," Walz said Friday. "Minneapolis and St. Paul are on fire. The fire is still smoldering (cháy âm ỉ) in our streets. The ashes (tro tàn) are symbolic of decades and generations of pain and anguish (nỗi thống khổ) unheard."

Mayor Jim Kenney said the destruction in Center City "saddened and disappointed me beyond words, and I'm sure it saddened every Philadelphian who takes pride in their city." He said those responsible (trách nhiệm) "not only desecrated (mạo phạm) private businesses, they also desecrated the important message that was heard in the earlier peaceful protests (biểu tình ôn hòa)."

"Beyond the pale" nghĩa là gì?

"Beyond the pale" nghĩa là quá giới hạn cho phép, không chấp nhận được, không hợp pháp/khuôn phép. Từ "pale" là cái hàng rào.

Ví dụ
Vice President Mike Pence says it is “beyond the pale” that the pastor (mục sư) of a Virginia church was issued a criminal citation (trát hầu tòa) for having 16 people at a Palm Sunday service that authorities (chính quyền) claim violated the state's coronavirus restrictions.

“If you do take California, you’ve got Gavin Newsom coming up with a budget here recently and what it does is it slashes funding (cắt giảm ngân sách) for schools, health spending, parks, childcare, and it is just beyond the pale [that] the governor is demanding $1 trillion from the federal government,” Payne said.

According to a careful study by the Committee to Protect Journalists, Donald Trump started referring to the press as “the enemy of the people” about three years ago. It’s a vile (ghê tởm) term, with a dangerous and dehumanizing (phi nhân tính) history, used during the French and Russian Revolutions, among other times, to place people beyond the pale.

"Beyond me" nghĩa là gì?

"Beyond me/someone" nghĩa là vượt quá giới hạn, khả năng của tôi.

Ví dụ
"Wearing black is what I do everyday. So hey, this is just who I am. So I'm going to continue to be who I am. If that means I wear black everywhere beyond me being a Black individual, I'll do it for the rest of my life," said Stephanie Taylor-Plummer.

He was screaming and crying — obviously in a lot of pain. When I saw his legs, I realized they were barely attached. With this type of injury, the victim (nạn nhân) should die within minutes. His entire body was a bloody mess. He also was conscious (ý thức), and how he remained alert (tỉnh táo) was beyond me.

Finally, the revelation that “Billy” Álvarez’s accounts were frozen last Thursday due to supposed illegal activity (hoạt động bất hợp pháp), such as money laundering (rửa tiền). The Cruz Azul president claims this is not true and it is reported that his accounts will apparently be unfrozen tomorrow, although this is not proof that he didn’t engage in illegal activity. How the FMF had no clue of this remains beyond me.

"Beyond the number" nghĩa là gì?

"Beyond the number" = vượt quá số lượng -> nghĩa là quá nhiều, không đếm xuể.

Ví dụ
Beyond numbers and place, there were other confirmations (xác nhận) of the meeting's significance. It was an event which signaled (báo hiệu) the move of black politics in Latin America into the halls of power.

Social media, it is feared, will only worsen this panic disorder (chứng rối loạn hoảng sợ) through its misinformation diarrhoea (ỉa chảy). Even mainstream media is unable to look beyond the numbers and opinions to prepare the community for the social dysfunction (rối loạn chức năng xã hội) ahead.

In this chapter, we go beyond number to examine other domains (lĩnh vực) of school mathematics in grades pre-K to 8. Because a great deal of the curriculum (chương trình giảng dạy) dealing with number leads naturally to algebra (đại số) and because whether and how to teach algebra to all children is a hotly debated (tranh luận sôi nổi) topic in many schools, we devote the bulk (phần lớn) of the chapter to issues of beginning algebra.

"Be beyond repair" hoặc "beyond help" nghĩa là không thể sửa chữa, giúp đỡ được nữa.

Ví dụ
The Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) says Fiji’s roads are filled with huge potholes (ổ gà) that are beyond repair.

Two hangars (xưởng máy bay) have been damaged beyond repair, according to official sources. However, those hangars were unused.

Some days it feels like we're beyond help. And yet, perhaps, conditions are this way for a reason. Perhaps they are pointing to a shift.

Indiana State University tried repeatedly to donate about 10 old pianos, virtually beyond repair, to community organizations (tổ chức cộng đồng). ISU officials contacted at least 15 such organizations — including Vigo County Schools, the YMCA, and Catholic Charities — to offer the pianos for free. Within the past two years, six old pianos went to ISU public auction (đấu giá công khai).

"Beyond (one's) depth" = (nước) quá sâu để bơi. Nghĩa bóng là vượt quá khả năng, hiểu biết của một người.

Ví dụ
There was once a boy, who, in trying to learn to swim, got beyond his depth in the water, and saw that he must drown if he could not get help.

Cooper, I admire your vim, but no matter what has happened to you since you arrived in my city, there is one truth that remains unaltered (không thay đổi): you are quite beyond your depth.

But the responsibilities (trách nhiệm) will not be beyond your ability, because they will not depend on your ability. You will not find yourself beyond your depth because you will not be swimming on your own.

"We went beyond our depth," said Harry, when they reached New York. "The game was too hard to solve. The mystery of the murdered (bị giết) man in the box must remain unsolved. It's our duty now to report the matter to our chief, drop it, and resume our attempt to locate the broker's (kẻ môi giới) mail thief."

Beyoncé and Jay-Z's wealthy (giàu có) and privileged daughter Blue Ivy Carter showcased her self-confidence in a funny video posted on Sunday by her doting grandmother Tina Knowles-Lawson. The 66-year-old Texan was attempting to wish a 'Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful mothers out there' while seated beside her 'bonus daughter' Kelly Rowland.

The Mericals are now experts on rip tides, but their message goes way beyond saving lives--it encourages giving life too. Paige was an organ (nội tạng) donor (hiến tặng). Taylor Hudson received her kidney (thận) and pancreas."We're like family because part of Paige is in her," Suzi Merical said. "She's my bonus daughter,".

"Gut-wrenching" = thắt ruột gan -> nghĩa là gây ra đau khổ về tinh thần hoặc cảm xúc, đau lòng.

A video showing a Minneapolis police officer kneeling (đè bằng đầu gối) on the neck of a handcuffed man repeatedly saying "I can't breathe," and who appears to lose consciousness or die while being pinned down, is "gut wrenching and deeply disturbing," Archbishop Bernard A. Hebda of St. Paul and Minneapolis said in a May 27 statement.

A disabled Minneapolis woman named Stephanie is breaking hearts with her gut-wrenching comments to a local reporter on the destruction and fear she experienced as protests over the police killing of George Floyd spiraled into violence.

"Be beyond/above suspicion" = vượt quá sự nghi ngờ -> nghĩa là đáng tin, trung thực.

Ví dụ
It was for cover, making sure that Slvasta and Javier were seen by hundreds of witnesses (nhân chứng), putting them beyond suspicion.

But if death is subject to politics (chính trị) then perhaps it is not surprising that even the humble pigeon is not above suspicion.

The idea of a mark that would awaken (đánh thức) them from history turned disaster (thảm họa) bears some interest, but it is not beyond suspicion.

"Fast bowlers are not criminals (tội phạm). They are honest and beyond suspicion. Give me $5,00,000 and I will return it to you," he said. "I would have passed Shoaib Akhtar. There is no doubt that he has a fluent action."

"Alter/change beyond (all) recognition" nghĩa là thay đổi nhanh đến chóng mặt, khó mà nhận ra.

Ví dụ
You don't need fancy Photoshop skills to alter a picture of someone - not if your goal is to blur (làm mờ) it beyond all recognition.

Society has changed beyond all recognition over the past six weeks as people have followed the advice to stay at home and save lives.

Ireland’s workplaces will alter beyond recognition as Covid-19 restrictions ease (nới lỏng hạn chế), under an agreement reached between the Government, employers and trade unions (công đoàn).

What they will find when they return is an industry changed beyond all recognition. Some of the facilities you now get rival top-class (cao cấp) hotels, with swimming pools, tennis courts and open-air cinemas.

The staff are beyond caring and all our clients are safe, well cared for and happy.

You can sometimes walk in and find them sleeping. You might feel awkward about interrupting (làm phiền), but they are beyond caring about privacy (quyền riêng tư).

Beyond caring for the animals, Georgia has other plans for what she wants to do at the Incarnation Center. It recently received a grant (trợ cấp), part of which she will use for the construction (xây dựng), now underway, and programming for a new classroom space devoted to environmental education.

"The Medical Unit is a shining example of calm (bình tĩnh) under pressure in that these professionals were faced with a health crisis beyond caring for individuals with pre-existing hypertension (tăng huyết áp), diabetes (tiểu đường), cardiopulmonary (về tim phổi) and other health concerns," Sheriff Gannon said.

"Go/be above and beyond something" nghĩa là vượt quá mong đợi/yêu cầu, nhiều hơn mức cần thiết.

Ví dụ
“The city is fully aligned with Gov. Cooper’s order but is no longer implementing (thực hiện) anything above and beyond the state’s restrictions (lệnh giới hạn),” Saffo said in a news conference Friday morning.

While response to the coronavirus pandemic has put many programs and businesses temporarily on pause (tạm dừng), Meals on Wheels volunteers never skipped a beat with delivering hot, nutritious meals to homebound (chỉ ở trong nhà) clients, many even going above and beyond.

There are so many people going above and beyond for others right now that it’s hard to choose who to focus on first. As the end of the school year is approaching and teachers have worked harder than ever during remote learning (học từ xa), it seemed like a good time to tell stories about local teachers who are showing kindness in action. The stories about these teachers have one thing in common. They all go “above and beyond.”

"A bit beyond your ken" nghĩa là gì?

Phụ nữ thật khó hiểu. Photo by Huyen Trang Nguyen from Pexels

"A bit beyond your ken" hoặc "beyond (one's) ken" nghĩa là vượt ngoài tầm hiểu biết. Ngược lại, "be in one's ken" là trong phạm vi hiểu biết.

Ví dụ
It was all, and the Captain admitted it, a bit beyond his ken.

In the summer of 2007, I called her to ask why they'd handed me a job that seemed a bit beyond my ken. By then, she had retired from most of her duties. “My memory is, we decided to hire the person, not the paper,” she said.

But it appears the omens (điềm báo) are no longer friendly. Apart from some personal misfortunes in recent times, including the beating he received in the hands of the IPOB members in Germany, he has been buffeted (đấm túi bụi) by certain forces, some of which appear to be beyond his ken.

It amused (buồn cười) him to think of her that way, calling to mind as it did the image of her as he had first seen her. Prim (nghiêm nghị), plain (đơn giản), and bossy (hống hách) of nature, a dowdy colonial spinster (bà cô không chồng ăn mặc tồi tàn xơ xác) with an air of command, she'd been something quite beyond his ken.
