IDIOM OF THE WEEK

on the back burner

Meaning:

If a plan or a project is on the back burner, it isn’t being worked on at present, but it might be completed in the future.

For example:

Plans for the new factory have been put on the back burner until the economy improves.

It’s a great idea, but we’re too busy to look into it now so we’ll put it on the back burner for a while.

Origin: Probably metaphorical, from cooking and the fact that most stoves have front and back burners. Front burners are used for things that need attention now, while back burners are for things that don’t need much attention just now.

Quick Quiz:

We’ll put the project on the back burner for a while because

a. it’s a terrible plan

b. we’ve already tried it

c. we’re too busy just now

‘Hobbit’ Ancestor Bones Found

Small human-like creatures lived in Indonesia 50,000 years ago, and a recent study found evidence of their much older ancestors.

Scientists working in Indonesia say they found several teeth and part of a jawbone that date back 700,000 years.

The scientists are with the Research Center of Human Evolution at Griffith University in Queensland, Australia. Two reports describing the findings appears this month in the journal Nature.  Link


Supreme Court Rejects Texas Abortion Law

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that Texas went too far in regulating a woman’s ability to end a pregnancy.

Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the opinion for the 5-3 majority. He said the Texas law is not medically necessary, and unconstitutionally limited a woman’s right to an abortion. Abortion is a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy.

The Supreme Court justices were deciding whether a 2013 Texas law was constitutional. The law requires doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at hospitals located near their clinics. It also required abortion clinics to meet surgical requirements for patients similar to those for patients at hospitals. Link

Video: https://youtu.be/FnMvgLGI8Ds

Are you all set to learn English? In this lesson, you’ll learn common ways to use set as a verb, adjective, and as a noun. You’ll even learn phrasal verbs and idioms with set. I’ve chosen the most common ways we use the word set in English-speaking countries. This is an easy lesson that will teach you some great vocabulary and expressions.

Depending on how we use this little word, we can talk about groups of people, collections, placement, building, being ready, and more. After watching the video, practice what you’ve learned by taking the quiz. Then, use your new vocabulary in English conversations and in writing!


MUSIC

“Heroes” do David Bowie

Video: https://youtu.be/Tgcc5V9Hu3g

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be Heroes, just for one day

And you, you can be mean
And I, I’ll drink all the time
‘Cause we’re lovers, and that is a fact
Yes we’re lovers, and that is that

Though nothing, will keep us together
We could steal time, just for one day
We can be Heroes, for ever and ever
What d’you say?

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever
Oh we can be Heroes, just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive us away
We can be Heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

I, I can remember (I remember)
Standing, by the wall (by the wall)
And the guns, shot above our heads
(over our heads)
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall
(nothing could fall)
And the shame, was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever
Then we could be Heroes, just for one day

We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
Just for one day
We can be Heroes

We’re nothing, and nothing will help us
Maybe we’re lying, then you better not stay
But we could be safer, just for one day

Oh-oh-oh-ohh, oh-oh-oh-ohh, just for one day
