  479.wash one’s hands
  汉语中“洗手不干”有点特指大侠或小偷等黑道中人。而英语中有个说法叫wash one’s hands of sth,也是“洗手不干”的意思,但是此“洗手不干”的意思就广的多,表达出“退出,不参与,不做某事,与某事脱离关系”,可以用在任何人的身上。
  eg:I am tired of arguing with my lab partners,so i am washing my hands of the science project.
  我已经厌倦了和我的实验搭档争吵,所以我退出了这项科研项目。 moon
  blue moon是一种非正式的用法意思是“很长一段时间,非常罕见的事”。从天文学角度讲,blue moon 是指一个月中的第二次满月,大约每32个月左右会轮到一次,这事一段相当长的时间,所以自19世纪后期以来,blue moon就有了“很少发生的事”的意思。
  eg:Barry only visits his parents once in a blue moon.

  481.lend one’s ears
  它的意思是“注意,请听我说”。源于莎士比亚的历史剧"Julius Caesar"。剧中,凯撒遭谋杀而死,在他的葬礼上,Mark Antony冲着一群拥挤嘈杂的人说“朋友们,罗马人,同胞们!请听我说”。人群就立刻安静下来。
  eg:I know you are very busy,but could you just lend me your ear for a minute?

  483.stool pigeon
  20世纪前,在北美,每到秋季,会有成群的passenger pigeon(侯鸽)向南迁徙。可惜19世纪“侯鸽”开始遭受人类棒打追击。"侯鸽“被猎捕的方式近乎残忍,一只”侯鸽“被捕后,会成为人类绝杀同类的诱饵,人类把它绑在凳子上,刺瞎双眼,靠它在凳子上痛苦的挣扎,失声的呜叫引诱鸽群。stool pigeon指的就是这种无辜的”诱饵“。具有讽刺 意思的是,在日常生活中,它竟被借喻为警方打入黑帮的”卧底“。
  eg:Watch out for Jone ,i am sure he is a stool pigeon for the police.

  补充下482.over the moon(在月亮上)指“欣喜若狂”,这个短语源于一首欢快的儿歌:“Hey,diddle/the cat and the fiddle/the cow jumped over the moon/the little dog laughed/to see such sport/and the dish ran away with the spoon”(嘿,快摇、快摇、猫咪和小提琴、母牛跳过月亮、小狗看到哈哈笑、碟子带着汤勺不见了。)儿歌虽然毫无意义,但是儿歌中的over the moon倒被大人采用,用来形容“兴高采烈”。到了上世纪70年代,over the moon常用语体育赛事,指赢得比赛后“欣喜若狂”。
    eg:The whole team is over the moon at winning the competition.

  Routine testing:常规测试
    The Declaration of Conformity is most often based on a one sample of a "type tested product" that ideally should be identically reproduced in series. In order to maintain safety in real life production, some quality control is imperative. The LVD specifies the requirement of such a scheme. Therefore each and every produced apparatus must be numbered and verified for a list of essential parameters -composed by your test house- such as functionality, dielectric strength, the grounding qualities and potential pitfalls created by foreseeable mistakes in production.

  eg:To do your duty is not enough.You must go the extra mile.

  请看例句:If you break a glass, do not pass the buck -- admit that you did it.

  600.fat farm
  有一些健身俱乐部一到长假期就会组织一些减肥健身活动的“集训”,在美国也有这样一种地方,叫做“fat farm”。farm就是“农场”。fat farm这个说法也许会引起误会,使人以为这样一个农场里面全市旁人。实际上,一个人到fat farm去是因为他想减肥。fat farm是一种健身治疗所,去那里的人要做大量的锻炼,但是东西吃得很少。有的美国人很难控制他们的体重,所有每年都会去一两次。例句:
  My sister Sally is back from the fat farm again having lost 20 pounds there.But by the way she eats,I’m sure she’ll gain it back and be back on the fat farm next year.

  601.’Mare’s nest’
  在英语里,"mare’s nest"表示"虚幻、不真实的事物",是"子虚乌有"的意思。说到其渊源,简单得近乎荒诞:因为母马从不筑巢穴,所以mare’s nest(母马的巢穴)自然也就不存在。由此,"mare’s nest"常用来比喻"原以为重要的追求,到头来却空欢喜、梦一场"。或许,人们又觉得,不会筑巢的母马即使筑巢穴也会搞得一团糟(更荒诞的推理),所以这个词又可用来指代“杂乱、无序、棘手"的状况。请注意,"mare’s nest"常与动词find搭配。
  例句:He thought the girl could be his wife-to-be, only to find a mare’s nest.
