"Pressed with questions"  có pressed là thúc ép, dồn ép -> cụm từ này nghĩa là bị đặt câu hỏi liên tiếp, hỏi dồn. 

Ví dụ
Jalen Ramsey showed some frustration (bực tức) on a recent conference call with reporters after he was pressed with questions about his contract situation. He even walked off the videoconference briefly before returning to say that he’s letting his agent handle it.

Pressed with questions on how he survived all this time and arrived on the faraway planet Bardo, the promo (quảng cáo) shows humanity's last moments before nuclear bombs drop worldwide.

“Even happy customers can be pressed with questions on how the existing products/service can be improved,” Kelly said. Either way, constant customer feedback (phản hồi) can reveal consistent problems that companies should address.

"Everybody wants to get back to work as fast as we possibly can,” he acknowledged, “There’s no debate (bàn luận) about that. What we’re trying to figure out is: What are the conditions (điều kiện) we need to have in place to do that safely?"

"Chop and change" -> nghĩa là thay đổi kế hoạch/hành động nhiều đến mức khiến nguời khác khó hiểu/khó chịu.

Ví dụ
That’s the one thing the gaffer (ông già) wanted to add, he wanted to add some quality so that we could rest players and chop and change and change formations as well.

If governments are going to chop and change the treatment (điều trị) of those investments they (investors) simply won’t put down the hundreds and hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars.

“We just had some interesting discussions (bàn luận) with some of the mine sites in Australia and their feedback was that they were finally getting the dust suppression (ngăn chặn) results they were after. “Mine haul roads chop and change a fair bit. They’re very, very heavily trafficked. So operators can invest in road stabilisation to the point that they over-invest in it.

We're trying to be consistent (kiên định) with what we did so to chop and change didn't feel like the right approach and I do imagine most will just shift it to next May.

"Bust one's chops" -> nghĩa là dồn nhiều sức lực để làm công việc khó khăn/nặng nhọc, nghĩa khác là rầy là/mắng mỏ, bắt ép ai làm điều gì.

Ví dụ
Tune in (tham gia) for all, some or even just part of the party, no matter how much or how little you partake, no one will bust your chops for showing up late, not staying to see their band or talking during someone’s set (you probably still shouldn’t get in the habit of doing that though).

It's pretty simple, don't break the law, don't resist (kháng cự) arrest, the cops won't have to bust your chops or worse.

“We always bust his chops,” said Bill Dunn, who works for All Phase Glass & Maintenance. “We tell him he bleeds (chảy máu) red, white and blue. Everything he owns has flags (quốc kì) on it. He’s just a true patriot (người yêu nước). God love him.”

My favorite matches ever, first one was [with Randy] Savage, really all of them. What’s really interesting is that a lot of the guys back then would bust my chops because I’d lay out the whole (toàn bộ) match in my head before I went out there.

"Angle of attack" nghĩa là gì?

"Angle of attack" = góc tấn công -> nghĩa là tư thế chiếc máy bay khi bay.

Ví dụ
Paragliders (dù lượn), along with their powered cousins paramotors, look somewhat like parachutes but are actually best described as an inflatable (thổi phồng) wing. The wing maintains its shape by being pressurized by air coming through openings in the leading edge. If the pilot doesn’t maintain the correct angle of attack, the wing can depressurize and collapse, with sometimes dire (thảm khốc) results.

To enhance (tăng cường) its superior aerial (trên không) firefighting performance, the Q400AT flight deck is equipped with a Conair developed and Transport Canada certified Flight Envelope Awareness System, which provides the pilots with enhanced safety awareness information, such as instantaneous G-Loading, slow speed awareness and angle of attack detail, along with flap configuration over-speed awareness.

However, regulators have not agreed on every issue. EASA has been arguing that Boeing should introduce a third synthetic (nhân tạo) angle of attack sensor on the MAX for further redundancy (dư thừa) to largely mirror the design set-up of the Airbus A320 family, which has three physical sensors as opposed to the MAX’s two.

Meanwhile, Boeing whistleblower Curtis Ewbank has urged additional (bổ sung) protections, while the British Airlines Pilots Association has called for Boeing to add a third “angle of attack” sensor to the jet.
