IDIOM OF THE WEEK

jobs for the boys

Meaning:

If you say “jobs for the boys” you’re referring to the fact that people in positions of power sometimes use their power to give jobs to their friends or family members.

For example:

Henry deserved the position, but it was a case of jobs for the boys, as usual, and one of the boss’s old school friends got it instead of Henry.

The new government has promised to stop the old system of jobs for the boys when it comes to appointing departmental heads.

Quick Quiz:

The president knows everyone is watching out for any sign of jobs for the boys, so there won’t be any positions in the government for

a. his old friends

b. immature men

c. the best people


READING AND LISTENING

Research Shows Dogs Really Do Understand Humans

Researchers at a university in Hungary say there is truth to what many dog owners always believed.  Dogs do understand what humans say.  The researchers made images of the brains of 13 dogs using a machine that records brain activity.  The dogs were trained to lie down in the machine for seven minutes. During that time, they listened through headphones to their trainers’ voices.  Dog owners may think the news is not surprising. But scientists are impressed.

English No Longer Requirement for New York City Taxi Drivers

In New York City, taxicab drivers are a largely immigrant community. And now, they are no longer required to know English.  In April, New York City’s city council approved a bill that allows tests required to get a taxi license to be given in foreign languages. The bill went into effect on August 26.  New York City’s taxi industry has been dominated by foreign-born drivers for decades. Only four percent of current New York cab drivers were born in the United States. That statistic comes from the Taxi and Limousine Commission.  Sponsors of the bill in the city council argued that the law will allow more immigrants who need work to support themselves.

MUSIC

Shake It Off – Taylor Swift

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfWlot6h_JM

I stay out too late
Got nothing in my brain
That’s what people say
That’s what people say
I go on too many dates
But I can’t make them stay
At least that’s what people say
That’s what people say

But I keep cruising
Can’t stop, won’t stop moving
It’s like I got this music
In my mind, saying it’s gonna be alright

Cause the players gonna play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake

Shake it off

Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, baby
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, Shake it off

I never miss a beat
I’m lighting up my feet
And that’s what they don’t see
That’s what they don’t see
I’m dancing on my own
I’ll make the moves up as I go
And that’s what they don’t know
That’s what they don’t know

But I keep cruising
Can’t stop, won’t stop grooving
It’s like I got this music
In my mind, saying it’s gonna be alright

Cause the players gonna play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off

Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, baby
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, Shake it off

Hey, hey, hey
Just think while you been getting down
And out about the liars
And the dirty dirty cheats of the world
You could have been getting down to this sick beat

My ex man brought his new girlfriend
She’s like oh my god
I’m just gonna shake
And to the fella over there with the hella good hair
Won’t you come on over baby we could shake, shake

Cause the players gonna play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate

Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake

Shake it off

Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, baby
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake

Shake it off, Shake it off
Shake it off
Shake it off
Shake it off
Shake it off
