"Call the wambulance" nghĩa là gì?


"Call the wambulance" -> nghĩa là lời nói kháy khi ai đó phàn nàn, than vãn.

Ví dụ
“Trust me, the public would gladly like to see you guys leave the White House. Overdramatic, professional pitch fitters. You can leave. No one will cry. Or we can call the Wambulance considering (cho rằng) this job just may be too much for you,” tweeted Daily Caller contributor Kambree Koa.

Remember the box WE all check agreeing to their terms. You want a free platform (nền tảng) you got your wishes. Your wife uses FB to post all those cute family photos of your vacation to Yellowstone but FB shouldn't interfere (can dự). You likely use Google maps at no cost while you complain Goggle invades your privacy. Better call the wambulance quickly.

After an initial (ban đầu) interest in the story the 10,000 mentions of it since have become background noise. But it seems to live on. We feel misrepresented, we feel hard done by. Waaa, waaa, call the Wambulance.

Speaking of stiff, there’s a body in the woods. It’s Denny. Wickham (A delightful Matthew Goode) is wailing out in the thunder and the lightning, lamenting (than vãn) the fact that he “killed his only friend.” Darcy is clearly thinking, “I wish I could just call the wambulance for my insane (điên khùng) mother, sister and brother-in law but noooo I must be a Man of Duty and integrity because…Pemberley.”

"Stick her chin out" nghĩa là gì?


"Stick (one's) chin out" = giương cằm lên (ngẩng cao đầu) -> nghĩa là quyết tâm, dũng cảm, không nản chí.

Ví dụ
Despite the team's performance in recent years, their star player has shown a remarkable amount of character by sticking his chin out and publicly reiterating his commitment and loyalty to the team.

O’Grady says. "He was pretty demanding, so it would get to be pretty intense, but to have someone who had their pulse on what team branding could do, he was willing to stick his chin out a little bit and do what no one else was doing at the time."

This meant that after he got caught, Lee didn’t stick his chin out and ask for more. Instead, he shot in for a takedown and kept up with it, giving himself time to recover and get back to his game plan. He eventually won the fight, at 2:18 of the fifth round, after the doctor was called in and deemed that Barboza was so badly beaten up that he could no longer continue.

"Who calls the shots here?" nghĩa là gì?


"Who calls the shots here?" -> nghĩa là ai là người chịu trách nhiệm ở đây? Ai là người có quyền quyết định?

Ví dụ
We are a Central university after all, and we also know that no matter who the Education Minister is, it is Amit Shah who calls the shots here.

So here we are 10 years later, and the BOE is appointing an Interim Superintendent upon a resignation (nghỉ việc). Do they plan to appoint her to the permanent position? She is in a tenured (nhiệm kì) position now and would be crazy to accept the superintendency, which cannot be a tenured position. So, who calls the shots here— the BOE, the teachers’ union, or the community? Maybe we could just let BOCES pick our next superintendent.

Who calls the shots here? Intellectual humility (khiêm tốn) requires scientists to go slowly. Editing genes isn’t like renovating (nâng cấp) your kitchen. As  Klaus Rajewsky, of the Max Delbruck Center for Molecular Medicine, pointed out Tuesday, “We have become masters in the art of manipulating (thao túng) genes, but our understanding of their function and interaction is far more limited.”

It doesn’t take much time for him to discover that Mariano Tavares is the one who calls the shots here. There is a gang (băng đảng), called La Union, that occupies (chiếm đóng) the slums (nhà ổ chuột) of the prison.

"Come to think of it" nghĩa là gì?


"Come to think of it" = nghĩ kĩ thì -> nghĩa là đột ngột nhận ra điều gì.

Ví dụ 
I know a faster route we can take, come to think of it.

"Maybe it’s ironic, or come to think of it, maybe not so much, of why I wear it," she told IndyStar in an exclusive interview.

The smoky taste comes from the wok hei. In Asian street markets, a toothpick or a bamboo skewer is the utensil (đồ dùng) of choice to eat these nuggets while you stroll. Come to think of it, that’s the best way to eat these rice rolls here as well.

The class of 2011 did not exactly break any records for playing. Actually, when you come to think of it, they might have. The four players the Red Bulls selected in the draft played a combined 10 games and 83 minutes in MLS action, which could very well have been the least in the history of the league.
