"Simplicity itself" nghĩa là gì?

Bức ảnh rất đơn giản :)) Photo by Florian Klauer on Unsplash

"Simplicity itself" -> nghĩa là rất đơn giản, dễ làm. 

Ví dụ
There are some odd inconsistencies (mâu thuẫn) with the reasoning of politicians who demand gun control. Their public rationale is simplicity itself; guns should be banned because they can be used to kill people. 

For Tuesday’s meal, simplicity itself: pasta with anchovies (cá trồng), garlic, chiles and kale. Or, if it’s bulk you’re after, sheet-pan sausages with caramelized shallots and apples.

Bottle bills were originally introduced in the 1970s as a roadside (bên đường) pollution control measure.  The idea is simplicity itself in concept.  When the consumer buys a beverage (đồ uống) in a disposable container there is a charge or deposit that is returned when the consumer brings the empty can or bottle back to the store.  Proponents of the law also asserted that it would increase recycling and reduce the volume of trash going into landfills.

Doctrines (học thuyết) decide what you buy, produce, or prioritise, all of which flows from deciding your best fighting foot. At one level, it’s simplicity itself; at another, it’s the most complicated (phức tạp) exercise in the world, because it needs you to think for yourself, and not unthinkingly rely on exotic language and catchy slogans used by other countries, all enticingly available on the internet.

"Shoulder surfing" = lướt qua vai -> nghĩa là liếc qua vai người đang dùng máy tính, điện thoại để xem trộm thông tin cá nhân của họ.

Ví dụ
These solutions include (bao gồm) hand gesture classification, human detection and counting, local face identification, location feature extraction, front-facing human detection and shoulder surfing detection, among others.

Their modus operandi, Swanepoel said, involves various scams (lừa đảo), like shoulder surfing, card skimming, swapping of cards and the trapping of cards inside ATMs.

There's a technique called "shoulder surfing": A potential thief watches you enter your credit card number or other personal information into a keypad, according to the U.S. Justice Department.

“Our HP Pro and Elite series have very hardened (cứng rắn) security features for files and OS and even installed built-in protection against ‘Peeping Toms’ or those who do shoulder-surfing,” she added.

"Short and sweet" nghĩa là gì?


"Short and sweet" -> nghĩa là ngắn gọn nhưng dễ chịu, thoải mái.

Ví dụ
In the cover letter, it's kind of like the introductory (giới thiệu) statement, maybe a little bit expanded, but just keep it short and sweet and mention a couple of accomplishments (thành tựu). But, don't put anything in the cover letter that's not in the resume.

Not every gaming experience needs to be a 20-hour adventure. In fact, there are some phenomenal (phi thường) games that can be completed in a single weekend, a single night, or even in a few minutes. Here are 10 wonderfully short and sweet video games on the Switch, and, with the Nintendo e-store holding daily sales, it's easy to pick up some of these titles on the cheap!

Some people think of the North Shore steelhead run as a short and sweet season of a week or so. But the spawning run can come in fits and spurts, often dependent on rainfall, river flows and water temperatures.

"I'm going to make this short and sweet: All good things must come to an end and I feel like certain things run their course and for me, I have run my course when it comes to the podcast," Lindsay said.

"Shopping spree" nghĩa là gì?


"Shopping spree" -> nghĩa là mua rất nhiều thứ, mua sắm thả ga.

Ví dụ
PEOPLE have been given the chance to win a £250 shopping spree at The Broadway in a new prize draw. First has teamed up with the Bradford shopping centre for the First Taste of Freedom £250 The Broadway Prize Draw.

A big office and research park in north San Jose has been bought by a West Coast investment (đầu tư) group, part of a billion-dollar shopping spree for Silicon Valley properties in recent weeks.

On Saturday, Caleb, who has leukemia (bệnh bạch cầu), got his wish of a shopping spree granted by the Make-a-Wish Foundation, and his family said this day has been on his mind for a while.

Corpus Christi's Chick-Fil-A on Saratoga raised money for the shopping spree, and other stores like the Great American Cookie Company and Bourbon Street Candy Company gave Caleb free products.

"Well and good" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Àlex Rodriguez

"(All) well and good" -> nghĩa là hoàn toàn có thể chấp nhận được, vừa đủ. Thường được dùng để kết nối một số vấn đề khác mà mình chưa xem xét hoặc giải quyết; tốt đẹp, ổn cả.

Ví dụ
All well and good, assuming you know what you’re measuring, and why. That’s why a great article by Dan Phillips, technical director of monitoring and diagnostics at Regal Beloit Corp. deserves a thorough review. Phillips discusses that it takes more than just sensors and analytics to have an effective data management program.

Autism has a huge scope for such a small word. The best way I’ve heard it described is as a pedal-bike wheel, with each spoke being a different trait, and with each trait you can have a strong or weak affinity (mối quan hệ, sự đồng cảm). As such, the experience of autism in some ways is as unique as a fingerprint. Autism-trait checklists are all well and good, but the personalities of these children are as unique as those of any other child.

While the U.S. arguably has the political will and the state capacity to at least attempt a Juster Transition, it is less clear that other countries do. Let’s look at Malaysia, where dividends, taxes, and other income from the state-owned oil and gas company Petronas accounted for about a third of public revenue in 2019. In Malaysia, solar and wind eroding the market share of oil and gas might be good for the environment, but it’s not good for the state budget. Emission reduction (giảm sự bốc lên) targets are all well and good, but if Malaysia is going to have a realistic path to a lower carbon future someone needs to come up with an answer for how the government will replace a third of its revenue.

"Whips and jingles" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Dan Meyers

"Whips and jingles" có whip là roi, jingle là tiếng leng keng -> cụm từ này nghĩa là cai rượu, ma túy.

Ví dụ
The whips and jingles can also make them more likely. For example, opioid drugs affect parts of your body that regulate sleep.

But some former guests and their family members told STAT that they were not given proper medical supervision as they faced withdrawal from alcohol or drugs before the show. STAT reports that guests wait up to 48 hours before their tapings, and some end up looking for drugs as a result of the detox.

When the Tubes appeared on the Cher TV special in April of the next year, I was almost overcome by a fit of the whips and jingles as I waited for the time to go by. It was an agony (sự đau đớn cực độ về thể xác hoặc tinh thần) of suspense, for fear the boys’ segment would wind up on the cutting-room floor. When they came on at last. I could see everybody just fine — except Vince. He stayed hidden behind the keyboards.

"X's and Y's and Z's, oh my" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Diego Morales

"X's and Y's and Z's, oh my!" được dùng đặc biệt trong tiêu đề bài báo và tài liệu quảng cáo. Mô phỏng theo câu "Sư tử, hổ và gấu, ôi chao!" từ bộ phim The Wizard of Oz năm 1939 -> cụm từ này nghĩa là để bày tỏ sự kinh ngạc, e ngại hoặc sợ hãi về sự xuất hiện, kết hợp, dư thừa của ba điều cụ thể.

Ví dụ
Lions, tigers, and BEARS…oh my! Are they in your backyard?

Lions and tigers and spiders? Oh my! Zoo Miami is already a fan favorite for animal and even reptile lovers and now Zoo Miami staff is being credited with discovering a brand new species of spider, and it’s a large spider too.

A famous fictional character once exclaimed, "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!" And while she wasn’t following a yellow brick road down to Locust Grove, the Georgia town does feature those three animals among more than a thousand others.

"Shilly-shally" nghĩa là gì?


"Shilly-shally" -> nghĩa là do dự nhiều thứ, khó đưa ra quyết định.

Ví dụ
Last week, I was in a shilly-shally mindset: Should I decorate (tân trang) my house or not, listen to Christmas music or not? I chose the former. It was time to begin a new life, again.

Taking such a shilly shally approach is simply no longer acceptable (chấp nhận) and we, as a council are asking again for a permanent solution to be identified, funded and delivered as a matter of urgency.

We are at a crossroads (bước ngoặt, bước quyết định) of severely tough choices in this country. We have been standing here for a long, long time. While we delay taking an inevitable path, the majority of well-thinking Jamaicans, who diligently and legally toil (vất vả) hoping to catch the increasingly elusive  (khó nắm) Jamaican dream, scream in agony because the merchants of misery are rapidly being emboldened by rancid victories. More than a spoke is needed in their wheel. We cannot dillydally and shilly-shally any more.

"In its elements, this is a story that is as indecisive, capricious (thất thường) and shilly-shally as water." Babu now brings order out of chaos, becomes a celebrity among the "young jet set of Dhaka," enters into a relationship with an attractive woman, and works an "overnight" miracle in an island as he did in Madhupur.

"Seal of approval" nghĩa là gì?

"Seal of approval" = con dấu chấp thuận -> nghĩa là được cấp trên ủng hộ, cấp phép.

Ví dụ
THE DESCENDANTS of shopkeeper (chủ hiệu) James Hobbs gave the restored former hardware shop their seal of approval at its official opening.

Project Manager Dominic Whittaker and Site Manager Steve Jones both from Ruskin, based at Fountain House, Halesowen, discussed the changes that were made with the ladies and were pleased (hài lòng) that they met with a seal of approval.

Edinburgh’s Baillie Gifford – which has an enviable (đáng ghen tị) investment track record after being early backers of success stories like Google, Amazon, Airbnb and Tesla – has now effectively given Bitcoin its seal of approval by ploughing £72m into the nine-year-old wallet and exchange.

There are some new faces in the Lewes area, and while scientists (nhà khoa học) are giving them their seal of approval, they're asking the community to give them some space while they get adjusted (điều chỉnh) to their surroundings.

"Piss money up the wall" nghĩa là gì?

"Piss money up the wall" có piss là hành động ngu xuẩn -> cụm từ này nghĩa là lãng phí tiền bạc, tiêu tiền một cách nông nổi, phù phiếm.

Ví dụ
Man who got surround sound looking for new ways to piss money up the wall.

It made me sick to watch while this administration pissed money up the wall for eight long years.

Our company needs to stop pissing money up the wall on things like company cars and exorbitant (cắt cổ) bonuses for management if it wants to survive.

Business is not about coming in, pissing my money up the wall, and saying "Oh well, I have learned from my mistakes and it won’t happen in the future."

"Yes and amen" nghĩa là gì?


"Yes and amen" -> nghĩa là nhấn mạnh sự đồng tình, tán thành.

Ví dụ
“I haven’t had a real clear explanation why I don’t play. The coach will find the other strikers better. I must, of course, respect that. But it is also my career, I cannot keep saying ‘yes and amen’. I train super hard, I am top fit, but I have to show it in ten minutes of inclusion. That is really difficult.”

Besides her recent collabo with Willy Pozze, gospel (phúc âm) singer Gloria Muliro has been out of the scene for a while. Now she makes an emphatic return with this Bwenieve produced worship video Nakubaliana. The moving video epitomizes God whose word is “yes and amen”. Known for her inspiring and motivating hit songs, Gloria sings her heart out, giving the song her all; this being one of the best comebacks witnessed in the gospel scenes in the recent years.

“Music has a way of connecting people to God,” he added. “I’m always listening for what God is saying to me through His Word or through other people. Usually, something will pop out at me, and I’ll run with it.” Amid COVID-19, We The Kingdom’s Franni Cash offered the reminder that “God is in control,” regardless of what the future holds. “He is here and He is doing something,” she told CP. “Our hope is in the fact that Jesus is coming, and we're going get to be with Him one day. In the meantime, let’s just trust Him and lean into that promise that He's given us.” “I love the Scripture that says that ‘all the promises of God are yes and Amen,’” she continued. “We know that one day we'll see all those promises fulfilled.”

"You and yours" -> nghĩa là bạn và gia đình, bạn bè, những người thân thiết.

Ví dụ
Praying that God will comfort you and yours in this time of sorrow. God Bless all of you.

Curtner has also created a Facebook page for his county commission campaign. "As election time draws closer, I will do my best to answer any questions and concerns our citizens may have and humbly ask for any support you and yours can provide me," Curtner said in his statement.

“We can’t assume that every instance of COVID-19 will be contained. We need to look at our individual and collective behavior to make sure transmission is limited if COVID-19 is present in the community. Practicing healthy habits like wearing masks while indoors, washing your hands frequently and keeping gatherings small are simple ways for you and yours to take some control over transmission risk.”

"You so-and-so" nghĩa là gì?


"You so-and-so" = bạn cũng rất chi và này nọ -> nghĩa là diễn đạt sự ngạc nhiên, bàng hoàng mà tránh nói ra lời khó nghe, cục cằn.

Ví dụ
"He was squirming around, cursing me, saying, 'Get off me you so-and-so,'" Bednarik said. "He wanted to hurry up and run another play. No way I was gonna let that happen. I held him down until I saw the hands on the clock hit zero. Then I looked down and said, 'You can get up now, you so-and-so. This (bleeping) game is over.'"

In a London pub one night, they ran into a major-league Hollywood name. The 29-year-old comedian, who is reluctant to name the real-life star, recalls, “They saw him drinking alone, and they said, ‘Oh my god, are you so-and-so?’ – and then hung out with him all night and took him to this bar in London.”

Two guys came in separately and sat at different tables by themselves along the same wall. They were both facing the door and clearly waiting for dates. Eventually a woman came in, walked up to the closest guy, and sat down. After about five minutes, the other guy, who was still waiting by himself, got up and walked over to the couple. He said, 'Aren’t you so-and-so? I’m so-and-so. We were supposed to be meeting.' She was clearly flustered. After lots of awkward laughter, she got up and went with the other guy to the other table.

"X's and o's" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Alvaro Reyes

"X's and o's" các ký hiệu được sử dụng để biểu thị các cầu thủ trong đội, thường là của đội đối phương trong sơ đồ chơi (tức là đánh dấu cầu thủ sẽ cố gắng thực hiện ghi bàn, di chuyển bóng) -> cụm từ này nghĩa là biết rõ, nắm thông tin về công việc được thực hiện như thế nào.

Ví dụ
Jones is a strong technician, but I don't think he moves the needle in a way that can stir Shanahan's imagination when diagramming X's and O's.

Meanwhile, the horizontal axis (trục ngang) represents time intervals. Moves on the chart are marked by X’s and O’s, with X’s representing the stock rising above a certain limit, while O’s show the times the stock dropped below a certain point.

We have all seen the saying plenty of times, and it is undeniable that without talented players you can’t win. However, for the Falcons the X’s and O’s have been a huge problem for several years. There are absolutely holes on the roster, but that is the case for most teams in the league.

"Willing and able" nghĩa là gì?


"Willing and able" -> nghĩa là sẵn lòng, có thể thực hiện công việc.

Ví dụ
“That doesn’t mean that it’s going to be required forever, it’s just for those that are willing and able to travel and are comfortable traveling and have had that process completed,” Van Beek said.

This needs to be someone more engaged, energetic and willing and able to stand up to politicians — publicly, if necessary — than the position’s current occupant, Dr. David Williams. The role also needs an individual better able to understand, integrate and act on the scientific advice being provided to the province.

I look forward to the hearing ordered by Judge Jerry R. Tillett and scheduled for Wednesday, April 28, 2021 regarding the petitions filed requesting release of the law enforcement body worn camera footage surrounding the death of Andrew Brown, Jr. on April 21, 2021. The duties of the District Attorney are statutorily (do luật pháp quy định) spelled out in NCGS 7A-61 and they include but are not limited to charging decisions regarding potential criminal conduct within the prosecutorial district. I stand ready willing and able to fulfill my statutory obligations and well as my Oath of Office for the people of the First Judicial District.

"What have you" nghĩa là gì?

"And what have you" -> nghĩa (không cụ thể) là còn những điều khác nữa.

Ví dụ
“You need to be able to take into consideration that not everybody can be able to afford the internet or a computer or things like that,” said Griego, who’s in his 60s. “People are spending their money for food, shelter and what have you.”

Added to the above spends are the ones on complex components, early warning systems, radars submarines (tàu ngầm, dưới mặt biển), fighter aircraft engines, heavy and light guns and what have you – in the next decade or so. Little doubt, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), which tracks military expenditure and arms trade globally, has described India as the third largest military spender in the world in the year 2020.

One of the things that Governor Cuomo talked about with the Syracuse state fair was the idea that people would be cordoned off in quadrants (góc, thước đo độ) for eating and attractions and what have you. But Underberg says she thinks the Erie County Fair should be more open so people could circulate around even though there would be distancing, masking, and obviously a limited capacity.

"Weave in and out" nghĩa là gì?

"Weave in and out" -> nghĩa là di chuyển từ trong ra ngoài, đi ra đi vô, lái xe quanh co.

Ví dụ
"By building Velomont, we're connecting rural communities to trailheads," said RJ Thompson, Vermont Huts' executive director. "Velomont will weave in and out of the forest and Vermont communities, giving Vermonters direct access to the trail and the opportunity to spend a night in a hut in the woods."

If you've been out on the roads, you know that not everyone drives well — but most people think they do. Some drivers speed aggressively. Others wander into another lane because they aren't paying attention. Drivers may follow too closely, make sudden turns without signaling, or weave in and out of traffic.

“They had to weave in and out all the way up to my heart, but they never opened my sternum (xương ức),” Brown said. “Dr. Bin said it was a very tricky, difficult procedure to do. He is just amazing. And the recovery was a lot faster this time." She said all the staff was fantastic and very knowledgeable. If she had to do it all over again she would go back to St. Luke's.

Maricopa Police Department spokesman Hal Koozer said Kevin Johnson was arrested and identified as the owner of the finger found on his neighbor's driveway.

Francesca Wikoff told police she found the finger on April 15 after discovering her vehicle had two slashed tires on one side. Police said a trail of blood (vệt máu) led to a nearby residence.

Authorities said Wikoff and her husband went to a neighbor's home the day before.

She told police a male neighbor joined them uninvited and became drunk and aggressive. Wikoff said the neighbor pushed and threatened her and her husband before being asked to leave.
