"Code of practice" nghĩa là gì?


"Code of practice" -> nghĩa là bộ quy tắc hành vi trong một ngành cụ thể.

Ví dụ
The Maritime UK Autonomous (tự động) Systems Regulatory Working Group (MASRWG) published the first code of practice to global industry-wide acclaim in November 2017, with the second version following in November 2018 and third in November 2019.

A new code of practice is to be introduced for Guernsey's construction industry. The regulations (quy tắc) have been in development for more than a year, and are being introduced to include the latest best practice.

It's been over four months since the government published its Code of Practice for commercial property relationships. The Code is not legally binding (liên kết); it is a voluntary set of guidelines which encourage landlords and tenants to recognise the novel challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and 'to identify mutual solutions'. 

The new standard, PAS 7061 Batteries for vehicle propulsion (thúc đẩy) electrification – Safe and environmentally-conscious handling of battery packs and modules – Code of practice, outlines best practice from sourcing material, through to manufacturing, use and disposal (tiêu hủy).

"Doesn't know which way is up or down" nghĩa là gì?

"Doesn't know which way is up or down" -> nghĩa là mất phương hướng, bối rối.

Ví dụ
This system allows you to sense gravity, and know which way is down. This system can sometimes become distorted (bóp méo) under diving conditions. Under these circumstances, the diver simply doesn’t know which way is up or down, a very dangerous situation.

“I have a few reasons for not sleeping well but the main one is I don’t know which way is up or down,” she says. “Sometimes I will work at night and sleep in the day because I have very little contact with the world. “No routine (lịch trình) makes me just roll along like a tumble (đổ nhào) weed. Which is what I am at night. A tumble weed.”

So what, it is just a song. But, people like you don't say shit when people make movies showing black women strippers as heroes, black men drug dealers as kings, and black people as slaves, year round. Yet you don't trip. My Black people are so fucked up they don't know which way is up or down, so you enjoy the random festivities (vui mừng, hân hoan) of because it sounds.

"We must learn to walk before we can run" nghĩa là gì?


"We must learn to walk before we can run" = hãy học đi bộ trước đã rồi hẵng chạy nhảy -> nghĩa là phải thuần thục các kĩ năng cơ bản trước khi tiến tới những cái phức tạp hơn. 

Ví dụ
He said: "We must learn to walk before we can run, and are not looking to pick a fight with the big boys. We need to find our niche (chỗ thích hợp). "We also have to spend any right to buy receipts we get within three years, or it gets taken from us by the government."

We must learn to walk before we can run. That said, Deer Creek-Mackinaw High School's fast-improving boys cross country team walked away with the first regional (địa phương) title in its history on Saturday by scoring 52 points in the Class 1A Eureka Regional.

As the famous saying goes, "We must learn to walk before we can run." Rose learned that in the most literal way possible during his rehabilitation (phục hồi). So in celebration of his comeback, let's take a look at all of those baby steps he had to take before he could finally leap out of a gym again.

Not only does the MH/LX eliminate the most often sited and valid (hợp lệ) objections that prevent Professionals from working together, it actually facilitates (làm thuận tiện) the process of helping them begin to work together, which is critical to the revitalization of our resale market.  Ultimately we believe that in some larger and higher priced markets, a full MLS may eventually be the right model because it imposes discipline, forces standardization, and can allow for more efficiencies in the sales process. However, like all industries, we must learn to walk before we can run, and the MH/LX provides a very simple, straightforward, and cost effective way to begin that process.

"Woe is me" nghĩa là gì?

Kêu than cũng không khiến bạn hạnh phúc hơn. Photo by Daria Shevtsova from Pexels

"Woe is me" = khổ thân tôi chưa -> (từ cổ) nghĩa là cảm thán sự bất hạnh của bản thân. Cụm từ xuất phát trong Kinh thánh (Ê-sai 6:5) và vở Hamlet của Shakespeare (Màn 3, Cảnh 1)

Ví dụ
Regarding his visits to his mom, he stressed how dealing with things we cannot control places us in a vulnerable (dễ tổn thương) state. “Make sure the visits are very light-hearted (vui vẻ), that you accommodate them and not yourself. You really have to make this journey light and peaceful. You can go to visit with a mindset of ‘woe is me,’ or ‘woe is my loved one,’ or you can make it light and peaceful."

“At the same time, people who upgrade their skill-sets and broaden their thinking won’t be left behind. So instead of people saying, ‘How lost I am, how crushed I am, woe is me,’ this is an exciting time, especially for young people, who don’t have to wait 10, 20 or 30 years for their turn to be a business leader. They can make a generational jump by stepping up and embracing technology, and by understanding in the rubble (đống đổ nát) and chaos what kernels (phần cốt lõi) of business are sprouting up (hình thành).”

“We’ve tried to develop this team knowing COVID would be an issue and the respect that we have for COVID in terms of its effect on the program,” he said. “So now we need these guys that maybe haven’t played major roles to step up and step into the next-man-up mentality that you’ve got to create. It’s no different from any other type of injury that you have. So we’re not a team that’s going to make excuses, and we’re not going to go in and say, ‘Woe is me’ because of certain guys that we don’t have. As a coaching staff, I can tell you that we’re going to put together the best plan we can possibly put together and put our players in the best possible positions to make plays in all three phases.”

"In weal and woe" nghĩa là gì?

"In weal and woe" nghĩa là trong những lúc hạnh phúc cũng như đau khổ, thành công hay khó khăn.

Ví dụ
Why, after all, I was not alone. No, here was a friend indeed (teste Byron), who would be ever by my side in weal and woe.

They should also make it known to the enemy that under their master, both ministers and soldiers are equally safe and happy, and that their master treats his servants (đầy tớ) with parental care in their weal or woe.

And this hath ever been a comfort to me, that I chose Jesus to my Heaven, by His grace, in all this time of Passion and sorrow; and that hath been a learning to me that I should evermore do so: choose only Jesus to my Heaven in weal and woe.

As the COVID-19 pandemic (đại dịch) is still raging (hoành hành) across the globe, the human community shares weal and woe, and the interests and security of all countries are closely linked, Wang said at a joint press conference with Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi following their meeting.

"A battle of wits" nghĩa là gì?

"A battle of wits" = trận đấu trí -> nghĩa là dùng trí tuệ để chiến thắng đối thủ (cuộc thi, tranh luận...)

Ví dụ
In the long-drawn (kéo dài) battle of wits between the Federal Government and the striking members of the Academic Staff Union of the Universities, ASUU, this column cannot afford to sit on the fence (trung lập) any longer.

Let other sports rely on brawn (sức mạnh) and speed - chess is about strategy (chiến lược) and mental acuity (sắc bén). Every contest is a battle of wits. Who can resist the opportunity to show off how much smarter they are than their opponent?

As I continued to go to business dinners with successful businessmen, my drink has now also turned into wine. It has turned into a battle of wits and knowledge. All of us are good at our job in the NBA. But when you go to dinner with a businessman, he is just as successful as you in his alley. 

Board games are my favorite hobby, and since introducing my family to a ton of great games, it's often what we end up doing for hours when we get together for big events. There's nothing that brings me as much joy as coming around the table and trying to crush my family members in a battle of wits.

Josua Hutagalung, 33, was at home when the football-sized meteorite smashed through the veranda (hiên, hè, hành lang) at the edge of his living room (phòng khách).

Experts have hailed the 4.5billion-year-old space rock as one of the most significant meteorite finds ever - saying it could contain elements which give clues (manh mối) to the origins of life (nguồn gốc sự sống).

Josua, of Kolang, in North Sumatra, has already sold the rock to a specialist collector - given him enough money to retire and build a new church in his village.

...He was given the equivalent of 30 years' salary for the 2.2kg rock.

In an experiment (thí nghiệm) that could portend (báo trước, điềm báo) a real-life Planet of the Apes situation, scientists spliced human genes into the fetus of a monkey to substantially increase the size of the primate’s brain. And it worked.

Researchers from Germany’s Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Germany and Japan’s Central Institute for Experimental Animals introduced a specifically human gene, ARHGAP11B, into the fetus (bào thai) of a common marmoset monkey, causing the enlargement (mở rộng, tăng lên, khuếch trương) of its brain’s neocortex.

First, 44-year-old Matthew Piercey jumped into a pickup truck when agents went to arrest him on Monday, leading them on a wild chase before eventually abandoning the vehicle on the shores of Lake Shasta, according to federal prosecutors (công tố viên) in California.

He then grabbed a Yamaha sea scooter — a motorized submersible device that pulls users at about 4 mph — and took it into the cold waters, staying there for about 25 minutes,
