"Fruit of his labour" -> nghĩa là thành quả lao động, phần thưởng cho sự nỗ lực.

Ví dụ 
"We wanted to make him an emeritus (danh dự) professor during the last convocation (hội nghị) so he would enjoy the fruit of his labour. But due to the cancellation that was why we could not do it," he said.

All year long he has proved his value on the pitch through his performances, but also with his winning and leader mentality. That's the fruit of his labour, now it's up to him to continue that work in order to achieve the club's goals in the years to come.

The fruit of her labour since going out on her own is a lovely debut album Sea Sew, which hit the shops in Ireland last week. A beautifully modulated (điều chỉnh) suite of 10 songs in the ‘folk-indie’ vein, some slow, some danceably fast, it is already a hit, climbing to No.3 in the charts in its first week on release.

"Frozen in time" nghĩa là gì?

"Frozen in time" = thời gian đóng băng -> nghĩa là không thay đổi, cập nhật theo năm tháng; hoàn toàn tĩnh tại.

Ví dụ
Until its doors were locked for the final time 12 years ago, it had been trading as a Mecca Bingo - welcoming hundreds of guests through its doors each and every week. But, with its final bingo call, came the last glimpse of its majesty (oai vệ). Today it stands frozen in time, with dabbers discarded and posters from yesteryear tossed (vứt) across the floor.

Spend enough time out in nature and you just might stumble onto something incredulous (hoài nghi) — like a cave man frozen in time, standing by a trail at Theodore Wirth Regional Park in Minneapolis.

Eerie glimpse (nhìn thoáng qua) behind doors of iconic (biểu tượng) building that's completely frozen in time.

It was also the film Macchio spent most of his career running from – “frozen in time” is how he describes it. It’s huge success tied him to a couple of sequels (cảnh phim) and, apart from a well-received role in the Oscar-winning film My Cousin Vinny, he became the obligatory (bắt buộc) once-was-famous special guest star on shows such as How I Met Your Mother and Law and Order: Criminal Intent. Then came a recurring spot in the comedy Ugly Betty in 2008 and then another as a corrupt cop in HBO’s The Deuce in 2017.

"On the wallaby track" -> nghĩa là đi lang thang ngoài đường, đi kiếm việc làm (vì đang thất nghiệp).

Ví dụ 
They were on the wallaby track, travelling on foot from station to station.

Many men were forced to go on the wallaby track, as jobs were scarce at the time.

After they retired, my parents sold their home, bought a caravan, and decided to go on the wallaby for as long as their savings would allow them.

"Hit a plateau" nghĩa là gì?

Plateau=cao nguyên. Photo by Yves Alarie on Unsplash

"Hit a plateau" = lên đỉnh đồi -> nghĩa là đạt mức độ thành công nhất định, sau đó là xuống dốc.

Ví dụ
Virginia is wrapping up its worst week to date in terms of new COVID-19 cases and reported deaths, but Friday data show a couple of signs that the recent surge may at least have hit a plateau.

"We may have hit a plateau on coupon auction sizes, but Thursday’s announcement by President-Elect Biden regarding his plans for another round of stimulus may change that outlook," said Thomas Simons, senior money market economist at Jefferies.

Analysts have already indicated a possible peak oil investment scenario, but that has been countered by many claiming that renewables will make up for losses. The reality, however, is very worrying. Demand for crude oil, natural gas, and petroleum products is going to hit a plateau in the coming decades, but it will still likely reach a level of more than 108-110 million bpd for a long period of time.

"The biter is sometimes bit" = người cắn đôi khi bị cắn lại -> nghĩa là người làm điều sai trái (đối với ai) thường cũng bị/phải chịu chính nỗi đau, điều xấu đó.

Ví dụ 
She has bullied me for years, and now she's getting a taste of her own medicine. I guess the biter is sometimes bit.

A prankster (người chơi khăm) like him deserves to be the target of his own tricks once in a while. The biter is sometimes bit, as they say.

The model has a post that attracts attention on her personal page. According to her, she was played by bad guys to the point where her health was getting worse. Praying the bad guys to forgive her, the model sends words to those who mean to her that the biter is sometimes bit, and she believes heaven always has eyes.

"Any old place" nghĩa là gì?


"Any old place" -> nghĩa là bất kỳ nơi nào.

Ví dụ
It starts with what we think the high street actually is. Many use the term as shorthand (tốc kí) for retail, given that sector’s dominance over our town centres in the past century or so. But a high street is not a sector, it’s a place – and not just any old place.

VRFBs are also hardy (khỏe mạnh) batteries – they can be shoved (vứt đại) in any old place and left to do their job for extended periods of time, as they require little maintenance. This is another plus when it comes to energy storage at remote mine sites. 

We can’t say that much for the many species of insect that skip that bit completely and just inject sperm (tinh trùng) any old place on a mate’s body. 

The vouchers will be available at venues throughout New South Wales, but you can't go into any old place to use them. Only eligible (thích hợp) businesses that register to be part of the program will accept the vouchers. As part of their eligibility criteria, these venues must have a COVIDSafe plan.

These men are flying all over the place. They are shipping their sperm with new vial (lọ nhỏ) systems and taking the latest DNA tests because that is what women want now. Sure, they can talk on the phone, but they say it has to be quick because they are driving to Dallas or Kansas City or Portland, Maine, in time for an ovulation window. They would like to remind me they have day jobs.

“People are fed up with sperm banks,” said Kyle Gordy, 29, who lives in Malibu, Calif. He invests in real estate but spends most of his time donating his sperm, free (except for the cost of travel), to women. He also runs a nearly 11,000-member private Facebook group, Sperm Donation USA, which helps women connect with a roster of hundreds of approved donors. His donor sperm has sired 35 children, with five more on the way, he said.

...Reliable numbers are tough to find in Sperm World.  Researchers cite data collected in the 1980s to estimate the number of children born by donor sperm in the United States at anywhere from 30,000 to 60,000 a year, though advocates push back even on that range, saying there are no dependable figures because there is no regulation. Sperm banking itself was about a $4 billion industry in 2018.

"Shearing woolly scrotums is a good idea to make sure the [testicles] (tinh hoàn) don't overheat  (quá nóng) and the sperm quality (chất lượng tinh trùng) stays high.

"But you definitely don't want to cut the scrotum."

Mr Jubb recommends anxious (lo âu, khắc khoải) rams be relaxed with the help of sedatives (thuốc giảm đau, thuốc an thần).

"A tit bit nipply" before the bloody scene after the massacre (cuộc thảm sát) in Thailand. It killed at least 26 people, injured 57 people and streamed video live on Facebook. Among the dead victims, the youngest was a 13-year-old boy.

"A bit of crackling" nghĩa là gì?


"A bit of crackling" -> nghĩa là người phụ nữ quyến rũ, được coi là đối tượng tình dục.

Ví dụ 
"You know her?" "I do, sir. Nice bit of crackling, she is."

But it became clear after a couple of weeks that he was only interested in a bit of crackling rather than the committed relationship he had been promising me.

The idea of woman as a bit of crackling in Korean society is increasingly extreme. The culture of female hatred (lòng căm thù) has spurred (thúc đẩy) the formation of a chain of sex crime industries that thrives on cyberspace.

Honestly, I think he’d be chuffed to bits to see old Anthony Hawk still kicking it, because skating games were absolutely the coolest things we had back in the early 2000s.

The hunk admitted to having a bit of a crush on Love Island alumni Joanna Chimonides, and was chuffed to bits when she posted a TikTok video that he made to her Instagram page.

My mum will be chuffed to bits when I tell her I’ve been vaccinated today, we just want to see each other again and make sure we don’t miss out on any more time with our friends and family.

Em làm gì mà dậy sớm thế?? Photo by Sage Friedman on Unsplash

"The small hours" -> nghĩa là lúc sáng sớm, thời điểm bắt đầu ngày mới, từ 12h đêm đến khi mặt trời mọc.

Ví dụ
According to social media pages, another 3,000 people are to meet at San Pedro Sula on Thursday evening to leave in the small hours for Corinto or Agua Caliente elsewhere (ở nơi khác) on the border (biên giới), some 260 kilometers away.

She said: “The snow came in the small hours, I think. We had a covering (lớp che phủ) when I got here just after 5.30am and I was thinking ‘if this turned to sleet (mưa tuyết), it might go’. Unfortunately, as I went to walk the course, the snow just got heavier and heavier.

In the small hours of Thursday, police found the body of a rebel (nổi loạn) Awami League councillor candidate from Kumar river in Jhenaidah’s Shailkupa upazila, barely four hours after a ruling party candidate’s brother was found murdered.

By the small hours of Monday morning, the notorious (khét tiếng) social media app Parler went completely dark after Amazon terminated its hosting services, The Verge reports. Apple and Google app stores already banned the app for its unmoderated (chưa được kiểm duyệt) violent content but Amazon's move marks the proverbial nail in the coffin.
