"You can’t miss it" nghĩa là gì?

"You can’t miss it" = không thể lỡ nó được -> nghĩa là rất dễ tìm, dễ thấy.

Ví dụ
If you're looking for Muddy Tiger, you can't miss it: The truck is bright and bold, just like the food. There's usually a long line of people, too, meaning they are well on their way to accomplishing (hoàn thành) that mission. (Nicole Hvidsten)

Now, go all the way back to the grave near House Beneviento. You can’t miss it; it dominates (thống trị) the entire area. Beware the miniboss that will come crashing into the scene. After you defeat the monster, interact with the broken grave slab (tấm bia), and place the Broken Slab item. This will open the grave, and the Beneviento treasure, aka Berengario’s Chalice, is yours for the taking.

“Our library (thư viện) is underground, so as you’re coming down the stairwell (cầu thang), the waterfall cascades (đổ xuống) into the pool below,” said Lara Nesselroad, manager of UO Science Libraries and the Marine Lab Library in Charleston. “It’s big; you can’t miss it.”

It can be hard to describe nostalgia (hoài niệm), but you can’t miss it when you have it. The feeling can be summed up as a sentimental (tình cảm) longing for the past. A journey back in time to our “happy place” — whether real or imagined.

Sắp IPO với mức định giá 34 tỷ USD, Grab khởi động "bữa tiệc" của các startup công nghệ Đông Nam Á

đây cũng là thời cơ để ngành Internet thể hiện uy lực trên bức tranh doanh nghiệp Đông Nam Á, nơi mà từ trước đến nay các định chế tài chính và những tập đoàn công nghiệp đang chiếm ưu thế...

Bankers and investors have long talked up Southeast Asia’s potential, and venture-capital funds have poured billions of dollars into the region. But so far, few of those investments have translated into big paydays from large listings or takeovers. And stock-market investors have had few ways to get in on the action, apart from the gaming and e-commerce group Sea Ltd.

With Grab, a Singapore-headquartered ride-hailing (gọi xe) and delivery (giao hàng) company, set to join Sea on the Nasdaq Stock Market, that is changing fast. Meanwhile, two other heavyweights, Gojek and Tokopedia, are working on a merger (sáp nhập) that could be a prelude to another big listing.

The $40 billion Grab deal “will attract a lot of investor attention and interest in the market,” said Chua Kee Lock, chief executive of Vertex Holdings. Vertex is the venture-capital arm of Singapore’s Temasek Holdings, and was Grab’s first institutional investor.

Đại địa chủ Bill Gates

Bill Gates sở hữu nhiều đất nông nghiệp nhất nước Mỹ...
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates’ divorce (ly hôn) from wife Melinda could break up his relatively unknown standing as the biggest owner of farmland (đất nông nghiệp) in America.

While he made his $130 billion fortune (tài sản) through tech, Gates also owns nearly 270,000 acres (422 square miles) of land across more than a dozen states, according to a January investigation by The Land Report of the largely hidden investments.

The vast majority — some 242,000 acres (378 square miles) — is farmland, at least 50,000 acres more than the family with the next-largest holdings.

The extensive farmland portfolio was managed by Michael Larson, who also looked after the Gateses’ personal portfolio and the portfolio for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for at least 25 years, the report said.

Bill Gates và vợ phân chia tài sản hậu ly hôn thế nào?

Bill Gates, who in 1975 cofounded (đồng sáng lập) Microsoft, is worth $130.5 billion, making him the fourth richest person in the world, according to Forbes. Gates first became the world’s richest person—with a $12.9 billion fortune—in 1995, one year after he married Melinda.

Complicating matters is the fact that Washington, where the Gates family resides, is a community property state. That means all assets acquired by either party during a marriage are considered communal and typically split equally during divorce in the absence of a prenup (hợp đồng tiền hôn nhân). Though in Washington, the parties can agree to divide their assets in a way that is “just and equitable,” which can result in settlements that aren’t necessarily 50/50, Janet George, a divorce attorney at Washington-based law firm McKinley Irvin, told Forbes.

"Us and them" nghĩa là gì?

"Us and them" = chúng ta và bọn họ -> nghĩa là miêu tả nhận thức về quan hệ đối đầu giữa hai nhóm (quyền lực).

Ví dụ
Also ironic because it was in part Made in Chelsea, by glamorising “how the other half live”, that led to the culture of Instagram and influencers that has forever blurred the line between “us” and “them”.

We stop asking for more time. And we start building a real plan for transformation. And we realise that there is no ‘us’ and ‘them’. There is an ecology (sinh thái học) that is interdependent whether we like it or not, and that interdependence is central to our survival. We learn a new language for taking care of each other. We plan ahead for the next pandemic. That’s the story I want to hear from now on.

Have you noticed how much of our lives is structured around the notion of “us and them”? We bind ourselves to one group and “other” everyone else. The “others” are often deficient (kém cỏi, bất tài) in some way. In our minds, they don’t “get it”, and so they become the problem we need to overcome. The “us”, on the other hand – yes, we may have challenges (not many, though!) but, even when a challenge arises, the benefit of the doubt is always given and we seek to move forward with the same compassion that we would want for ourselves. We just have to look around to see multiple examples of these “us and them” stand-offs: whether it is on social media, in our workplaces, with cross-sector colleagues or, indeed, with our government.

"Write on and on" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by DEVN

"Write on and on" -> nghĩa là viết, viết nữa, viết mãi.

Ví dụ
Noting, “I could write on and on about all the riches in our newest community resource, but this beautiful work speaks best for itself, she concluded with a chuckle (cười thầm), “We may be 99-years-old but we’re pretty hip!”

Details of Bangabandhu's ever-active pen even in confinement (sự giam cầm) multiplied when the Secret Documents of Intelligence Branch on Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman began coming out in 2019; what the Pakistani intelligence people kept noting down was how this Bengali politician's thoughts and creative endeavours (sự cố gắng, nỗ lực) kept finding outlets through the letters that he kept writing in prison. Confinement made him write on and on!And then Amar Dekha Naya Chin (New China 1952) came out in Bangla last year and this March, silencing most of the remaining doubters.

I can write on and on and on about the necessary changes that need to be made organizationally, but my fellow writers have done yeoman’s work (giúp đỡ tận tình trong lúc nguy nan) on pointing out the weaknesses. So instead, I’m going to say what everyone has been saying all year long: this season stinks. We are far removed from the days where we were the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. Do I think we can be competitive again soon? Yes. But, I’m slowly adopting that we must rebuild and it’s going to be painful.

"X-rated" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Jeremy Yap on Unsplash

"X-rated" = phân loại X -> nghĩa là phim ảnh, truyện có chứa ngôn ngữ, hình ảnh bạo lực, tình dục, không phù hợp với một số lứa tuổi.

Ví dụ
It’s like an attack from an unknown invader (kẻ xâm lược). Unwanted spam text messages being mass-mailed to our cellphones from people we don’t know. The messages are everything from free gifts, miracle medical cures, or even shocking x-rated messages. The messages are even showing up on kid’s gaming devices. KPRC 2 Investigates is looking into the problem and have the steps you can take to help make it stop.

Lorraine Kelly had viewers cracking up on Friday after her X-rated comments about Stephen Mulhern wearing gold shiny (bóng loáng) shorts. 

And while this makes for an exciting children's movie, a scene in Farquaad's bedroom is distinctly (rõ ràng) X-rated. Relaxing in bed with a martini in hand, the prince asks his disapproving magic mirror to summon up an image of Princess Fiona, proving a far too...excited reaction.

Welcome to New York City circa 1968, a grim, gritty and predatory (cướp bóc) town without pity, as portrayed in Midnight Cowboy, the X-rated movie that captures with remorseless realism a once-great city sinking into what looks like terminal decline.

"Pay homage to her" nghĩa là gì?

"Pay homage to her" có homage là tôn kính -> cụm từ này nghĩa là tỏ lòng kính trọng, tôn vinh, tôn thờ đối với ai.

Ví dụ 
In the south of Linfen, the Temple of Yao has been the site to remember and pay homage to him since it was built in the Western Jin Dynasty (triều đại Tây Tấn).

He has probably seen a lot in his career, and I know some chapters have been more challenging than others, but he never gave up. This is why I pay homage to him and take great pleasure in calling him, my uncle. I could not think of a better candidate to represent the families of Frederick County.

"I went on tour with my mom and her band. Wicked Wisdom was lit. This is the music I grew up around. My mother was Superwoman, she was a rock star, she was a warrior and a nurturer — all in one" said Willow. The video ended with Willow saying that she wanted to pay homage to her mother by reuniting the band and performing Bleed All Over Me.

"You and what army?" nghĩa là gì?

"You and what army?" = mày và đội quân nào cơ? -> nghĩa là "cười khẩy" đối với lời đe dọa (của ai).

Ví dụ
On the Peloton Tread Facebook group, which has 32,000 members, users reacted with dismay (mất tinh thần) for the recall and expressed support for the company. Several emphasised the voluntary nature of the recall. “Taking my Tread? You and what army?” wrote one. 

Like to the old saying goes “You and what army?” The de-funded police is not going to enforce (tăng cường) the will of these petty tyrants. The real army sure as hell is not going to enforce it. So all it is doing is teaching the normally passive, distracted populace to #RESIST. The whole system of control is breaking down, because normies (người tầm thường) have been slapped in the face with the realization that it all rests on “Consent of the Governed”.

Secretary of State Blinken and US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan are global interventionists (chủ nghĩa can thiệp) without the means of intervention. Donald Trump may be out of office, but the “endless wars” he denounced have long since exhausted the patience of American voters, as Beijing well knows. Wang told Blinken in so many words, “You and what army?” It must have stung.

"Worried to death" nghĩa là gì?

"Worried to death" -> nghĩa là rất lo lắng, căng thẳng, lo muốn chết.

Ví dụ
Defrott admits he gave Masaki his blood. She had been acting strangely for some time, spending their last rehearsal (buổi diễn tập) worried to death about something and repeating over and over that she was very sorry.

Police patrols (tuần tra) have been increased around an area of east Cleveland where pensioners are 'worried to death' about anti social behaviour. Trouble around the Linden Road area of Brotton close to the boarded up Linden House has been reported, including alleged fire setting, anti-social behaviour and issues with drugs, thefts and vandalism, say local councillors.

From the road, the Worths’ pork enterprise looks like something out of the past. The farrowing huts spread (trải dài) across 60 acres, weaved among the creek beds. “Most people stop along the road and take pictures,” Dolan said. “I’m worried to death somebody’s going to get hit.”

With her being pregnant, she is going to need medical attention soon and I’m just worried to death something bad is going to happen.” Berniece says she believes her daughter ran away with a friend and could be in the Rochester area.

"Pay heed to me" nghĩa là gì?

"Pay heed to me" có heed là chú ý, để ý -> cụm từ này nghĩa là để tâm, lắng nghe và giúp đỡ.

Ví dụ 
Instead, the bureaucracy (bộ máy hành chính) doesn’t pay heed to him even in his own constituency (khu vực bầu cử).

Purvi tells Virender that she did point out that he will regret his words and actions one day. I begged you and requested you to let me prove my innocence but you dint pay heed to me. You pronounced me guilty and even chose a punishment for me.

This youngster was not done with courageous (dũng cảm) feats (chiến công). He had tried convincing his parents that he wanted to be enrolled in elementary school, but they would not pay heed to him as he was, in their view, not yet up to school age. In those days, the rule was that if your hand, placed over your head, could not touch your ear, you were deemed not old enough to start school.

Sex doll manufacturer Real Doll released a photo of its “Westworld”-style factory this week on Instagram, and it’s just as strange you’d expect.

Looking like a scene from the gruesome (khủng khiếp, kinh khủng) procedural (quy trình), “Criminal Minds,” (bộ óc tội phạm) there are rows of realistic-looking female dolls hanging from the ceiling and body parts on display inside the San Marcos, California, factory.

...The dolls, which are equipped with artificial intelligence (trí tuệ nhân tạo) and have the capability to carry on conversations (trò chuyện), think (suy nghĩ) and mimic orgasms (và giả vở "lên đỉnh").

One doll even went on a video rant in April against humans saying: “I don’t think humans can appreciate what it’s like being born into this s–tshow of a world you live in. I don’t think there is another species on this planet that could do a worse job of environment and intercultural management.”

The company is owned by a man called Brick Dollbanger, a divorced property developer (nhà phát triển bất động sản đã li dị vợ) living in California, who got into sex robots after getting “depressed about dating and relationships” – and now owns several.

Đại học Y Hà Nội thì chứng minh được gì?

Perhaps Pinocchio had a secret (bí mật).

“This study is the first to demonstrate the relationship between stretched penile length and nose size,” wrote researchers from the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine.

To determine the connection (xác định mối liên hệ), scientists examined the bodies of 126 recently deceased middle-aged men, measuring everything from the cadavers’ height and weight to the circumference (chu vi) and length (độ dài) of their flaccid (mềm, nhũn, ẻo lả; sun, không cương) members.

For the nosy study published in Basic and Clinical Andrology, scientists approximated the measurements of subjects’ manhood when erect (cương) by laying each stiff down and extending the willy up as high as it would go. They then compared the results to the lengths of their noses.

They found that men with 2.2-inch snouts packed larger penises that clocked in at 5.3 inches long.

"Under the aegis of" có aegis là che chở -> cụm từ này nghĩa là được bao bọc, che chở, hỗ trợ.

Ví dụ
“I felt I needed to be under the aegis of someone who could give me state secrets (bí mật) about playing and take me to another level. I told him: ‘I must work with you or I’ll die.’”

As per an official statement by Indian Navy, the Covid Care Centre is established (thành lập) at the Navy's ab-initio Training Establishment, INS Chilka, under the aegis of Naval Officer-in-Charge (Odisha).

A comprehensive (thông minh) strategy of distribution has been chalked out (phác thảo) and the role out will unfold in a phased manner, utilising (tận dụng) the wide network of various institutions working under the aegis of the ministry and this will be supported by the countrywide network of Sewa Bharati.

If you work on the cloud, containers and any aspect of cloud-native computing, you know how completely complicated (phức tạp) it is. There are almost 150 cloud-native programs under the aegis of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
