"A lot of bunk" -> nghĩa là vô lý, không thành thật, giả dối. 

Ví dụ
So, Kesterson wants to know if any of this is true, or at least enough to tell his husband, "I told you so," or if he's the victim (nạn nhân) of a really great small-town legend that's just a lot of bunk.

The guy I saw on a bench on Thursday, waiting for a bus in Eagle Rock with his face fully exposed (hở hang), had his own ideas about masks and the local and national response to the coronavirus pandemic. “I think it’s a lot of bunk,” said Eugene, 58.

“As the term has been used particularly in defense of sudden deaths occurring when someone has been shot by a TASER, my personal bias (xu hướng) is that it's a lot of bunk and that it does not exist,” Zipes said. “It's thrown around far too frequently in my research of it and is used as an excuse to explain mechanism (cơ cấu) of death.” 

“Is there an urban/rural divide? Absolutely,” Brown told the Capital Bureau. “But I would really push back and say it’s a lot of bunk to say myself as an executive and legislative leadership don’t care about rural (nông thôn) Oregon.”

"Variety is the spice of life" nghĩa là gì?

"Variety is the spice of life" = sự đa dạng là hương vị của cuộc sống -> nghĩa là có nhiều trải nghiệm, thay đổi, đổi mới thì cuộc sống mới vui tươi, thú vị. 

Ví dụ
Variety is the spice of life on Aungier Street. The property, which comprises (bao gồm) a newly-fitted ground floor restaurant and six residential apartments overhead, is on the market for in excess of €1.5m.

We certainly talk a lot about politics (chính trị) and current events, but variety is the spice of life, so sports and Broadway are always in the mix. Broadway’s going through a tough time right now, but my book, recounts a better time — the 1990s.

Algae-based wafers (bánh xốp) and tablets are not only good for plecos, livebearers like guppies, platies and mollies will graze on them too. You can deliver more food to larger fish in a pellet or watch all your fish go mad for a tablet that sticks on the front glass. Variety is the spice of life so increase the variety of foods you feed your fish and watch them blossom.

They may have a signature scent (mùi hương) but could be looking to mix things up with something entirely new - variety is the spice of life, after all.

"In Abraham's bosom" nghĩa là gì?

"In Abraham's bosom" = trong vòng tay của Abraham -> nghĩa là ở trên thiên đàng, đã chết. 

Ví dụ
When it's my time to go to sleep, I have no doubt (nghi ngờ) in Abraham's bosom my soul will keep. And when I am awakened from my peaceful rest, to stand on Jordan’s shore with all the rest, I’ll wait for Jesus to come and take me by the hand, to lead me through that promised land, I am sure my Paw will have hold of my other hand.

Article 633 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church declares, “It is precisely these holy (thánh) souls, who awaited their Saviour in Abraham’s Bosom, whom Christ the Lord delivered when He descended into hell”.

Jerome says that Lea is “welcomed into the choirs of the angels (bầy thiên thần); she is comforted in Abraham’s bosom.” He urges Marcella to remember the lesson of her life: “We must not allow…money to weigh us down, or lean upon the staff of worldly power. We must not seek to possess both Christ and the world.” 

Bryant will be dearly missed by the world of Basketball and of course by his family. One can only imagine the grief (đau buồn), his wife is going through. May God strengthen her. Bryant inspired many across the globe to play the game with a passion. In Abraham's bosom, he will still play with his daughter.

"Fill or kill" nghĩa là gì?

"Fill or kill" -> lời chỉ dẫn tới các nhà môi giới, mua hoặc bán cổ phiếu ngay lập tức. 

Ví dụ
Glossary All or None (AON) A stipulation of a buy or sell order which instructs the broker to either fill the whole order or don't fill it at all; but in the latter case, don't cancel it, as the broker (nhà môi giới) would if the order were filled or killed. Day Order A buy or sell order that automatically expires (hết hạn) if it is not executed during that trading session. Fill or Kill An order placed that must immediately be filled in its entirety or, if this is not possible, totally canceled. 

The fill or kill (FOK) is a specific type of limit market order which tells the broker to execute the order immediately and entirely or not to fulfill (hoàn thành) it at all (kill it). In other words, the order gives a choice to the market maker to fulfill all contracts immediately at a particular price or kill the order. These orders usually pressure (gây áp lực) the market makers in their decision-making and in most cases, they get “killed,” not fulfilled.

CryptoAltum, a popular MT5 platform, executes (thực hiện) trades using market execution with all trades filled at the best available price in the market. The company uses Fill or Kill orders meaning orders are filled entirely at the best available price, with no partial fills and a 100% execution rate.

The minimum order size for ETH-USD orders is set at $200 USD, with orders below $1,500 being either market or fill-or-kill, meaning they must be placed a specific (cụ thể) price in line with the market’s spot rate.

"Closed-casket funeral" nghĩa là gì?

"Closed-casket funeral" có casket là quan tài -> cụm từ này nghĩa là đám ma nhưng quan tài được đóng kín, người ngoài không thể nhìn được vào trong.

Ví dụ
Events surrounding Reed's death were broadcast (phát sóng) in real time on Facebook, including comments by a responding detective who is heard saying: 'I think it's going to be a closed casket, homie,' an apparent reference to a closed-casket funeral.

Our Covid funeral at Jiji Ndogo brings more drama than anyone would have anticipated (thấy trước). First, the entire village wants to attend the funeral. News that only immediate family members are allowed has them incensed (thắp hương). “We want to see how a person looks when he dies of corona,” one man says. “Due to all the precautions in place, it will be a closed casket funeral,” I say.

“We can still have private family viewings and still have a closed-casket funeral with 50 or less people,” Marshall said. “There are going to be people who are disappointed when the times will not be announced in the paper, but what are you going to do? It is private.” Marshall said it is natural to want to extend a hand for a handshake, but during this time of social distancing he reminds people that for now, that needs to go by the wayside (lề đường) and they should place their hands in their pockets.

Earlier, her closed-casket funeral was held at Christ the King Church in Khudadad Colony. The prayers were led by Archbishop Joseph Cardinal Coutts. It was a very brief (ngắn gọn) ceremony with limited attendance due to the church’s standard operating procedures, which also needed to be followed strictly. But it was all streamed live on the Dar ul Sukun page on Facebook.
