"Times change and we with time" nghĩa là gì?

"Times change and we with time" -> nghĩa là khi thời gian trôi thì con người và mọi hoàn cảnh cũng thay đổi theo (chúng ta thay đổi theo thời gian).

Ví dụ
You may be surprised to realize that self-awareness (tự nhận thức) isn’t a destination, but a journey. Because times change and we with time. That way, we always need to keep up with our emotions, feelings, and expressions.

“Kids under the age of 12 to 14 should play a less contact form of soccer which we should develop for them. Kids between 12 and 18 can play but should not head the ball. I know this is difficult for many people but science evolves. Times change and we with time It is time for us to change some of our ways,” he said.

Your kitchen is arguably an essential space in your house. It’s THE point of social interaction and family tete-a-tete. However, you know what they say; times change, and we with time. Your kitchen also is a natural recipient of this change in needs – A very strong driving force to upgrade your kitchen. But most of us chicken out before taking the plunge (quyết tâm hành động, liều). Either we aren’t sure where to begin or we can’t place the factors that scream for your space rejuvenation (sự làm trẻ lại).

"Up to your ears in debt" nghĩa là gì?

"Up to your ears in debt" -> nghĩa là nợ nần ngập mặt, nợ nần chồng chất.

Ví dụ
If you can afford to buy a million-dollar house you shouldn't need a leg up (hỗ trợ) from the Government, unless you are up to your ears in debt.

Why you should still throw at least some money into savings, even if you're up to your ears in debt. Setting aside some money for savings is essential (quan trọng) for indebted millennials: Focusing solely on debt keeps you in the past, but savings (even small amounts) offer optimism (điều lạc quan) for the future.

In the short-term, spending your loan money on something else apart from your tertiary education may not seem like a big deal. Others have done it, you tell yourself as you make a mental note to take up a part-time job to earn some cash on the side. But then the semesters zip by (vèo qua) and the little you earn, you spend on gas for those long road trips with friends. Before you know it, you’re graduating and up to your ears in debt.

"Have a tin ear" nghĩa là gì?

"Have a tin ear" = có tai bằng thiếc -> nghĩa là không có năng khiếu hoặc hiểu đầy đủ về cái gì, không am hiểu âm nhạc; "đàn gảy tai trâu".

Ví dụ
Trump seems to have “a tin ear” when it comes to military issues, said Peter Feaver, a professor of political science and public policy at Duke University and former adviser (cố vấn) to Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

He ignored covid red flags raised by US intelligence agencies in January. Despite evidence (bằng chứng) from South Korea on the efficacy (hiểu quả) of mass testing (thử nghiệm), it was too late by the time the US ramped its efforts up. All along, he seemed to
have a tin ear for scientists.

New Zealand First promised the farmers that we would not have a tin ear, that we knew how critical they were to our economy, that we also believed that they were interested in reform (cải cách) as we are.

"Fall on deaf ears" nghĩa là gì?

"Fall on deaf ears" = (như) nói vào cái tai điếc -> nghĩa là bị phớt lờ/bơ.

Ví dụ
"Our efforts to get any timeframe on when this package might receive government approval (chấp thuận) appear to fall on deaf ears," he said. "In contrast, key competitor countries, including Canada, the UK and New Zealand, announced student visa packages upwards of two months ago."

“I knew it was the right thing to do and I knew at Zillow it wouldn’t fall on deaf ears,” Piccini said. “I knew that people there would really want it to come to fruition (đâm hoa kết trái).”

Shearer's plan is likely to fall on deaf ears after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed the next transfer window (mùa chuyển nhượng cầu thủ) won't be a busy one at Old Trafford. "I think it’ll be a calm transfer window or a sightly different kind of window"’ Solskjaer said.

K9 police dog Cwyk caught up with the suspect, who "was actively fighting" the police dog when officers got to them. Police said the suspect put the dog in a headlock and punched it several times.

Young Americans are having less sex -- and they can't even blame (đổ lỗi) the coronavirus pandemic for this one.

Sexual inactivity increased among young American men between 2000 and 2018, according to researchers from Indiana University and Sweden's Karolinska Institutet who studied survey data from US adults. Postponement of adulthood and the growth of the internet and digital media could be reasons for why.

Researchers analyzed data looking at sexual frequency and number of sexual partners, looking at responses supplied by more than 4,000 men and 5,000 women for each question.

Men who were unemployed, had part-time employment or lower incomes were more likely to be sexually inactive, researchers found, noting that the percentage of sexually inactive 18- to 24 year-old men increased from 18.9% between 2000 and 2002 to 30.9% between 2016 and 2018.

Women aged 25 to 34 were also having less sex,

First dates are always nerve-racking. What if you don't fancy them, or they don't like you? What if you have nothing to talk about and it's really awkward?


Naked speed dating events became a hit before lockdown, and many could now move online, offering people the chance to get to know each other without the distraction of clothes.

The events were held in pubs, with guests changing into robes on arrival before stripping off as they sat down. They would have three minutes with each potential match before moving on, just like in traditional speed dating.

It's the news many single people up and down the country have been waiting for since lockdown began – they will soon be able to have sex with someone they don't live with for the first time since March 23.

Speaking at the No.10 Downing Street press conference today (Wednesday, June 10), Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed a new "bubble system" is to be introduced on Saturday that will allow English people living alone to meet up with members of another household indoors.

Socialising in such a way, including getting frisky between the sheets, had technically been made illegal (phạm luật) in April when new coronavirus legislation was introduced.
