"Stretch forth" nghĩa là gì?

Bàn tay giúp đỡ. Photo by Artem Beliaikin from Pexels

"Stretch forth (from something)" nghĩa là trải dài hoặc mở rộng từ cái gì.

Ví dụ
During this pandemic, you can see there are no congregational (giáo đoàn) activities and that's where they work, hence God blesses them. Some don't have other streams of income, some do have some other streams of income, but we must be able to stretch forth our hands to one another.

Daniel 11:40 refers to “the king of the south” who will push and antagonize (đối kháng) “the king of the north.” In retaliation, the king of the north will “come against him like a whirlwind (cơn lốc)… he shall enter into the countries …. He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape” (verses 40 and 42).

Indeed they gathered in this city against your holy servant (bầy tôi) Jesus whom you anointed (xức dầu trong nghi lễ tôn giáo), Herod and Pontius Pilate, together with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, to do what your hand and [your] will had long ago planned to take place. And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and enable your servants to speak your word with all boldness (dũng cảm), as you stretch forth [your] hand to heal, and signs and wonders are done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.

"Stretch the truth" nghĩa là gì?

Vì chẳng ai kiểm chứng nên cứ viết bừa vậy. Photo by Markus Winkler on Unsplash

"Stretch the truth" nghĩa là thổi phồng sự thật.

Ví dụ
Applicants (người ứng tuyển) tend to stretch the truth, with statistics revealing that nearly 36 percent of applications are falsified (sai lệch)!

We might lie to get a job and, once there, continue to stretch the truth to look better than we really are, get out of things we don’t want to do and conceal (che giấu) our mistakes.

You need your coast enlarged (mở rộng). You need to stretch the truth. God is a master at stretching that which is not enough. He takes a word of truth and makes it cover a world of need.

White lies leave black marks on a man's reputation (danh tiếng). You can't stretch the truth without making your story look pretty thin. When you stretch the truth, it will snap back at you.

"Stretch out" nghĩa là gì?

"Stretch out" = dang rộng, căng, duỗi tay/chân, dãn cơ. "Stretch something out" nghĩa là kéo/mở rộng cái gì hay kéo dài để đáp ứng những nhu cầu.

Ví dụ
Drink plenty of water, especially after your stretch. Once your muscles have been stretched out, they need to be replenished (bổ sung) with fluids (chất lỏng).

It was a busy Monday at the Leon County Tax Collector's Office.; the line of people stretched out the door and went all around the building when the office opened.

This 10 minute yoga exercise for beginners can help stretch out any tension (căng thằng) which may have accumulated (tích tụ) in your shoulders and neck as a result of spending more time sitting at home or looking at your phone.

But as it turns out, she explained most of the cramping (chuột rút) people experience during running can't really be "stretched out" — with the exception of a side stitch that can be helped by standing, breathing, and pressing into it. But other leg and body cramps? Not so simple.

"Stretch yourself" nghĩa là gì?

Nằm ngoài đường thì có hơi... Photo by Julio Motta from Pexels

"Stretch oneself" nghĩa là vươn vai, dãn cơ hoặc nằm sõng soài, nằm dài ra để nghỉ.

Ví dụ
Yes, the novelty (mới lạ) of so much unscheduled time has worn off. However, there are still opportunities to be found to stretch yourself into a new activity.

Life is nothing like high school. The course of your life is largely up to you. Stretch yourself. Challenge yourself. Imagine what you want to do with your life, and then create a plan to achieve it.

“With contrast supersets, the first exercise should be slow and controlled, while the second should be high in reps and explosive (bùng nổ),” says Men’s Health Fitness Editor Andrew Tracey. It’s time to stretch yourself.

This week’s recipe from the Hopgood’s team is for Walnut Rye Bread, Aaron says now that people have rediscovered (khám phá lại) baking during lockdown you should stretch yourself a little and make this bread that’s perfect with things like pork & duck rillettes or one of the outstanding pates from Craft French Pate.

"One of those days" nghĩa là gì?

Buồn ơi là sầu. Photo courtesy: Fabrizio Mingarelli

"One of those days" = những ngày đó -> một ngày khó chịu hoặc không may.

Ví dụ
Emmons said he just had one of those days every golfer has where nothing seemed to go right.

A blend of sunshine and building, puffy cumulus clouds (mây tích tụ) come off a frosty (băng giá) start in northern New England overnight Sunday. Cumulus clouds can occasionally build high enough to yield (sản sinh) some showers (mưa) and today is expected to be one of those days.

Once upon a time, five years ago to be precise, Dilip Varma was caught up in the monotony (buồn tẻ) of a hectic (sôi nổi) corporate job in Mumbai. He was away from his family, in a city far, far away. It was on one of those days that Varma decided to take a walk down the memory lane (hồi tưởng). He then saw his younger self listening curiously to the stories that his grandmother told him, sitting in the comfort of their house in Kochi.

"One of these days" nghĩa là gì?

I'm coming. Photo courtesy: catphotographie

"One of these days" = trong những ngày ấy -> chẳng bao lâu nữa, tương lai gần.

Ví dụ
“Come on, man. Look her up! One of these days you’re going to face her and one of these days you’re going to text me back and say, ‘Dennis you know what? You’re right, she’s good, just like me. She’s a bulldozer (người hay dọa dẫm), but she’s a Rodman.’

“We’ve had the franchise for Hershey’s ice cream (not related to the chocolate company) for 15 years,” said Scott. “It’s been an inside joke that one of these days we’d open an ice cream parlor (cửa tiệm).”

Mid-conversation, one of Flower’s neighbours enters the room. Flower asks her to check her computer’s Internet connection. The neighbour, a Mrs Ghosh, corrects (sửa lại câu nói) Flower. She says, “It is not a computer, it is an iPad.” The nonagenarian (người từ 90 đến 99 tuổi) replies, “Everything these days is a computer; even your phone is a computer. One of these days, we will be asked to swallow a tablet (viên thuốc) and we will all be computerised (điều khiển bằng máy tính).”

"Imagine as" nghĩa là gì?

Thả hồn vào tác phẩm, hình dung mình là nhân vật chính. Photo by Rahul Shah from Pexels

"Imagine (someone or something) as (someone or something)" nghĩa là hình dung ra như là.

Ví dụ
We ask the readers of this anthology (hợp tuyển) to imagine as they read, how, in the past, men and women thought about individuals and groups, the sexual and the social, “in ways our culture has all but forgotten” (Williamson 132).

You are rolling out the dough (bột), feeling the pressure on your hands. You keep rolling. Once the dough is ready, imagine as you carefully move it into the pan. Perhaps you fold it into quarters before placing it there; perhaps you just move it over.

Imagine if, as a young adult, your daughter isn't shallowly shaped by materialism (xem trọng vật chất) or traditional culture. What if she were shaped to be inwardly secure (an toàn nội tâm) and outwardly giving? Imagine her as a passionate leader or team player who fulfills her calling to be part of God's kingdom in healthy relationships, understanding herself as a committed (tận tụy) transformer who gives her life away for the benefit of others.

"Flight of imagination" nghĩa là gì?

I believe I can fly~. Photo by Fröken Fokus from Pexels

"Flight of imagination" nghĩa là giàu trí tưởng tượng, bay bổng, không thực tế.

Ví dụ
So the IPCC’s commonly cited doomsday scenario (kịch bản ngày tận thế) looks like a rash (liều, bừa bãi) flight of imagination.

My first close-up view of the moon was a fake: an illustrator’s (người minh họa) flight of imagination to the lunar surface, with its hard-edged crags (vách đá cheo leo), plunging fissures (khe), eerie shadows and pitch black sky.

Wunderman Thompson South Asia’s crowdsourced (đám đông) film for AirAsia says when you take flights of imagination in your minds, when you soar in your dreams, when you test your wings of freedom, you are flying, and you have never stopped.

Like the concentration camp (trại tập trung) victim (nạn nhân) who scratched butterflies into the walls of his prison, I see that the primacy (ưu việt) of the flight of imagination is the freedom that is required. “You do not own me,” I am able to say to the walls that enclose me.

"Graven image" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Alem Sánchez from Pexels

"Graven image" nghĩa là tượng thần (tôn giáo). Từ "image" nghĩa là thánh thượng, thần tượng.

Ví dụ
Biblical scholars (học giả Kinh thánh) have pointed to the link between the Genesis description of human beings as being created in the image (selem) of God, and the subsequent use of the same word selem to refer to idols or ‘graven images’ in the later Old Testament (Cựu Ước).

In our society today, we are doing the very same thing. The god may not be a graven image, but the United States of America is infatuated (đắm đuối) with riches. The more we get, the more we want. Some call it capitalism (chủ nghĩa tư bản), but God calls it sin (tội lỗi) — we put the desire for riches above God, and he is not happy.

Tonight we will be discussing events surrounding the, 'religion' of the left and their islamic death cult (sùng bái cái chết) allies (đồng minh). Their false gods allow them to harm everyone and everything that is not loyal to the golden calf (bê vàng, biểu tượng thờ phụng đồng tiền) of political correctness (đúng đắn chính trị). The bright idol they have made hides unending darkness-and we will lay that graven image low.

"Public intellectual" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Martin Miranda on Unsplash

"Public intellectual" nghĩa là trí thức của công chúng.

Ví dụ
Dinesh D’Souza has had a prominent career as a writer, scholar (học giả), and public intellectual, and has also become an award-winning filmmaker. His new book is “United States of Socialism: Who's Behind It. Why It's Evil. How to Stop It.”

He has helped me understand why intellectual honesty is so elusive, why our divisions run so deep, and what steps we need to take to overcome the antipathy (ác cảm) that characterizes so much of modern politics. He is also a model of what it means to be a public intellectual.

Prof. Khursheed Ahmad, an economist and public intellectual who shuttles between Lahore and London, said in his weekly column published by the World News TV UK website: “The present stage of the Kashmir movement is effective and decisive…There are some signs that it is the last stage of this movement.”

"Beyond feeling" nghĩa là gì?

Ngắm nhìn bản thân đẹp đẽ là một loại năng lượng tích cực. Photo by Adrienn from Pexels

"Beyond feeling" nghĩa là vô cảm, không còn cảm xúc với điều gì (sau khi trải qua cảm xúc mạnh như căng thẳng, sợ hãi...).

Ví dụ
But the real man is beyond growing old, because he is beyond feeling anything. He is stationary (đứng yên), outside of life. The world is a blank to him and always will be.

He didn't pity us. Not that I want pity. I want feeling. Because reality is more than just reason. Reality is beyond reason, but it isn't beyond feeling. But Yage was beyond feeling. He wasn't natural.

I wear makeup in varying degrees and it definitely has a positive connotation (ý nghĩa tích cực) for me. While I have grown beyond feeling "naked" without it, I still treat it as a valuable addition to my self presentation.

For my own part, I have always found that cognition (nhận thức), when highly purified (thanh lọc), could fly higher than feeling. It is perfectly true that Transcendental Knowledge is beyond thought, but, at the same time, it is equally beyond feeling and sensation (cảm giác).

"Beyond recall" nghĩa là gì?

Đánh rồi không chơi đánh lại nha :D. Photo by Şahin Sezer Dinçer from Pexels

"Beyond recall" nghĩa là không thể thu hồi, hủy bỏ, đảo ngược hay thay đổi được nữa. Cụm từ xuất hiện từ giữa những năm 1600.

Ví dụ
Caruana pulled ahead by winning Games 7 and 8 and then settled for a draw (trận hòa) in Game 9. So caught up by taking Game 10 and moved beyond recall by beating the world No. 2 in Game 11.

Leveling off at 200 feet and now just minutes from crossing the border, I was actually relieved (nhẹ nhõm) that we were beyond recall by the command authority (cơ quan chỉ huy) to abort the strike (hủy bỏ cuộc đình công).

Consider an analogy (tương tự): the 2008 financial crisis. Lehman Brothers collapsed (sụp đổ) just a couple weeks before fiscal year (năm tài chính) 2009 started, leaving that $666 billion defense budget (ngân sách quốc phòng) largely beyond recall.

On the other hand, experimental studies (nghiên cứu thực nghiệm) show that a hypnotized (bị thôi miên) person can describe specific details of an event, which normally is beyond recall. Apparently the memory is there, locked in the recesses (nơi sâu kín) of the mind.

"The Great Beyond" nghĩa là gì?

Chuyến tàu chỉ dành cho người chết. Photo by neil kelly from Pexels

"The Great Beyond" nghĩa là kiếp sau (afterlife).

Ví dụ
You were blessed with an effervescent (sôi nổi) personality, bubbly as one of our prized beverages. Your zest (nhiệt huyết) for life, and desire to not only make the most but also bring the best out of every situation was on full display until you passed on to the great beyond.

Nevis in itself has produced many centenarians (người thọ trăm tuổi) and until October 2019, had the distinction of having the oldest living person in the Federation Ms. Celian ‘Martin’ Powell. Sadly, Ms. Powell has passed to the great beyond but her legacy (di sản) still prevails much like all the other centenarians.

Forever, Russian Doll, After Life, The Good Place, Good Omens, Miracle Workers—the comedic (hài hước) entertainment space has become as infatuated (mê đắm) with the notion of the Great Beyond in recent years as most organized religions. It’s understandable, it’s only the biggest question facing humanity (nhân loại) throughout our existence. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DIE (dun dun dunnn)?!

"Go beyond" nghĩa là gì?

Vấn nạn đã tồn tại quá lâu rồi. Photo by Joe Piette

"Go beyond (something)" nghĩa là vượt lên, vượt qua (đi lại) hoặc vượt xa yêu cầu.

Ví dụ
“The report goes beyond a focus on COVID-19, taking a holistic (toàn diện) approach to health security in the region by continuing to fight AIDS, tuberculosis (bệnh lao) and malaria (sốt rét), which World Vision is pleased to see,” Mr Strong said.

Widespread use (sử dụng rộng rãi) of coronavirus-related loan forbearance (khất nợ) measures will affect structured finance (SF - cho vay theo nhu cầu) transactions (giao dịch) in ways that go beyond the initial risk of liquidity (thanh khoản) strain.

To understand the mayhem (tình trạng lộn xộn) on display in Minneapolis and other cities is not to condone (bỏ qua) it. It went beyond the death of one man who pleaded for his life — “I can’t breathe” — as an officer’s knee was pressed against his neck for more than eight excruciating minutes. It was about myriad (vô số) other times unarmed (không vũ trang) African American men have been killed at the hands of police. It was about the history of justice (công lý) that proved so maddeningly elusive (thoái thác), time after time, even in many of the egregious incidents (vụ việc nghiêm trọng) captured on video.

"Beyond words" nghĩa là gì?

"Beyond words" nghĩa là không nói nên lời, nghẹn ngào (vì xúc động).

Ví dụ
I am pained beyond words to learn about the tragic (thảm khốc) train accident in Aurangabad, Maharashtra.

I’m beyond words to express it. I love being in the military, I love working at Comcast, and to be honored like this is beyond words.

"Our community, especially our black community, is hurting beyond words," Walz said Friday. "Minneapolis and St. Paul are on fire. The fire is still smoldering (cháy âm ỉ) in our streets. The ashes (tro tàn) are symbolic of decades and generations of pain and anguish (nỗi thống khổ) unheard."

Mayor Jim Kenney said the destruction in Center City "saddened and disappointed me beyond words, and I'm sure it saddened every Philadelphian who takes pride in their city." He said those responsible (trách nhiệm) "not only desecrated (mạo phạm) private businesses, they also desecrated the important message that was heard in the earlier peaceful protests (biểu tình ôn hòa)."

"Beyond the pale" nghĩa là gì?

Trump lúc này. Photo courtesy IoSonoUnaFotoCamera

"Beyond the pale" nghĩa là quá giới hạn cho phép, không chấp nhận được, không hợp pháp/khuôn phép. Từ "pale" là cái hàng rào.

Ví dụ
Vice President Mike Pence says it is “beyond the pale” that the pastor (mục sư) of a Virginia church was issued a criminal citation (trát hầu tòa) for having 16 people at a Palm Sunday service that authorities (chính quyền) claim violated the state's coronavirus restrictions.

“If you do take California, you’ve got Gavin Newsom coming up with a budget here recently and what it does is it slashes funding (cắt giảm ngân sách) for schools, health spending, parks, childcare, and it is just beyond the pale [that] the governor is demanding $1 trillion from the federal government,” Payne said.

According to a careful study by the Committee to Protect Journalists, Donald Trump started referring to the press as “the enemy of the people” about three years ago. It’s a vile (ghê tởm) term, with a dangerous and dehumanizing (phi nhân tính) history, used during the French and Russian Revolutions, among other times, to place people beyond the pale.

Thu Phương

"Beyond me" nghĩa là gì?

Là chính mình thì có gì sai? Photo by Rosemary Ketchum from Pexels

"Beyond me/someone" nghĩa là vượt quá giới hạn, khả năng của tôi.

Ví dụ
"Wearing black is what I do everyday. So hey, this is just who I am. So I'm going to continue to be who I am. If that means I wear black everywhere beyond me being a Black individual, I'll do it for the rest of my life," said Stephanie Taylor-Plummer.

He was screaming and crying — obviously in a lot of pain. When I saw his legs, I realized they were barely attached. With this type of injury, the victim (nạn nhân) should die within minutes. His entire body was a bloody mess. He also was conscious (ý thức), and how he remained alert (tỉnh táo) was beyond me.

Finally, the revelation that “Billy” Álvarez’s accounts were frozen last Thursday due to supposed illegal activity (hoạt động bất hợp pháp), such as money laundering (rửa tiền). The Cruz Azul president claims this is not true and it is reported that his accounts will apparently be unfrozen tomorrow, although this is not proof that he didn’t engage in illegal activity. How the FMF had no clue of this remains beyond me.

Thu Phương

"Beyond the number" nghĩa là gì?

Một con số khổng lồ. Photo by Tobias Rehbein from Pexels

"Beyond the number" = vượt quá số lượng -> nghĩa là quá nhiều, không đếm xuể.

Ví dụ
Beyond numbers and place, there were other confirmations (xác nhận) of the meeting's significance. It was an event which signaled (báo hiệu) the move of black politics in Latin America into the halls of power.

Social media, it is feared, will only worsen this panic disorder (chứng rối loạn hoảng sợ) through its misinformation diarrhoea (ỉa chảy). Even mainstream media is unable to look beyond the numbers and opinions to prepare the community for the social dysfunction (rối loạn chức năng xã hội) ahead.

In this chapter, we go beyond number to examine other domains (lĩnh vực) of school mathematics in grades pre-K to 8. Because a great deal of the curriculum (chương trình giảng dạy) dealing with number leads naturally to algebra (đại số) and because whether and how to teach algebra to all children is a hotly debated (tranh luận sôi nổi) topic in many schools, we devote the bulk (phần lớn) of the chapter to issues of beginning algebra.

Thu Phương

"Bonus daughter" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: Gift Habeshaw on Unsplash

"Bonus daughter" -> cách nói khác của step daughter, nghĩa là con nuôi.

Ví dụ
She is survived by her husband, MJ Forrest and bonus daughter Shelby, both of Atlantic Beach; mother, Peggy and stepfather (bố dượng) John Chadwick, both of Raleigh; sister, Janet Adair Mahoney of Raleigh; two nieces (cháu gái), Adair and Jameson Mahoney, both of Raleigh; stepbrothers, Michael Chadwick and wife Amy of Leicester, UK, and Todd Chadwick of Philadelphia, Pa., and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many, many friends.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z's wealthy (giàu có) and privileged daughter Blue Ivy Carter showcased her self-confidence in a funny video posted on Sunday by her doting grandmother Tina Knowles-Lawson. The 66-year-old Texan was attempting to wish a 'Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful mothers out there' while seated beside her 'bonus daughter' Kelly Rowland.

The Mericals are now experts on rip tides, but their message goes way beyond saving lives--it encourages giving life too. Paige was an organ (nội tạng) donor (hiến tặng). Taylor Hudson received her kidney (thận) and pancreas."We're like family because part of Paige is in her," Suzi Merical said. "She's my bonus daughter,".

"Gut-wrenching" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by: Road Trip with Raj on Unsplash

"Gut-wrenching" = thắt ruột gan -> nghĩa là gây ra đau khổ về tinh thần hoặc cảm xúc, đau lòng.

Ví dụ
Police release 'gut-wrenching' video of gunfight (trận đấu súng) after Toronto rapper fatally shot on downtown street. Young artist had 'unlimited potential (tiềm năng),' music label says.

A video showing a Minneapolis police officer kneeling (đè bằng đầu gối) on the neck of a handcuffed man repeatedly saying "I can't breathe," and who appears to lose consciousness or die while being pinned down, is "gut wrenching and deeply disturbing," Archbishop Bernard A. Hebda of St. Paul and Minneapolis said in a May 27 statement.

A disabled Minneapolis woman named Stephanie is breaking hearts with her gut-wrenching comments to a local reporter on the destruction and fear she experienced as protests over the police killing of George Floyd spiraled into violence.
