  get a handle on

  控制;驾驭

  get something under control

  ●TPO25L4 – Animal Behavior

  Apparently,it also contributes to the development of a brain that's flexible, a brain that's quickly able to get a handle on unfamiliar situations.

  很显然,它对大脑灵活、快速的适应陌生环境有着重要帮助。

  heavenly body

  天体

  planet

  ●TPO18L1 – Astronomy

  That's because of their belief at the time that the heavenly bodies, the Sun,Moon,Stars and Planets, were perfect, without any flaws or blemishes.

  这是因为他们坚信所有的行星,太阳,月亮等等,都是完美无瑕的。

  high and low

  到处

  everywhere

  ●TPO5C1 – Student & Counselor at the University Counseling Center

  And it so happened that the cellist graduated last year. They’ve been searching high and low for a replacement, someone with experience.

  大提琴手去年毕业了,他们到处寻找有经验的接班人。

  how come

  为什么,怎么会

  disbelief or surprise

  ●TPO26L3 – Astronomy

  I mean, how come Halley’s is still there? After four and a half billion years. How could it be?

  我意思是,经过了45亿年哈雷彗星怎么还在那,怎么可能?

  let alone

  更不必说;不打扰

  to say nothing of…

  ●TPO22L2 – Astronomy

  we know the Sun’s current rate of mass loss, but if we assume that this rate has been steady over the last four billion years, the young Sun wouldn’t have been massive enough to have warmed Earth, let alone Mars, not enough to have caused liquid water.

  我们知道太阳现在质量在衰减,如果我们假设太阳质量衰减的速度是恒定的,那么经过40亿年,太阳将不再有足够的质量给地球提供热量,更不用说火星了,这些热量都不够形成液态水。

  off the hook

  摆脱困境;脱身

  avoid sth.

  ●TPO15C2 – Student & Biology Professor

  And that's supposed to be a quiet environment? Not exactly. My brother and parents try to keep it down when I am studying, but the phone pretty much rings off the hook, so ...

  本该是一个很安静的环境吧?事实却不是这样,在我学习的时候都爸爸和哥哥放低声音,但是电话却响个不停。

  pros and cons

  利弊

  advantages & disadvantages

  ●The question is how. I mean no one really thinks that, say a bee goes through weighing thepros and cons of pollinating this flower or that flower.

  问题在于怎样做到的。没有人会认为蜜蜂给花朵授粉的时候会去权衡一下这朵花和那朵花的利弊。

  put two and two together

  根据事实推理

  reach a correct conclusion from the evidence; making inference

  ●TPO3L4 – Astronomy

  So he put two and two together, and decided there was an element in the sun that hadn’t been discovered here on the earth yet.

  所以他根据现有情况推断,太阳里有一种元素是我们至今都没有发现的。

  rule of thumb

  经验法则

  approximately

  ●T2C1 – Student & Professor

  .. like your parents. That’s usually my rule of thumb: would my parents understand this?

  ...例如你的父母。按我的经验法则,我会问:我的父母能理解吗?

  spot on

  完全正确

  exactly right

  ●TPO29L4 – Structural Engineering

  There’s a reason I mentioned that figure of 36,000 kilometers. That’s about how high an object would have to be orbiting straight up from the equator to constantly remain directly above the exact same spot on the rotating planet Earth.

  就像我刚提到的,36000公里是近地同步卫星的最低轨道高度。
