It's too early for us to die - we still have things to do at home


Phraseologism: It's too early for us to die - we still have things to do at home.

Meaning: Not everything has yet been done in this life to think about retirement, retirement, etc. (jokingly ironically).

Origin: From the song "Front Path" (another version of the title is "Song of the Front Driver", 1946), written by composer Boris Mokrousov (1909-1968) to poems by poets Boris Laskin (1914-1983) and Naum Davidovich Labovsky (1908-1989): " Oh, the front-line path! // Any bombing is not terrible for us. // It's too early for us to die // - We still have things to do at home."

Random phraseology:

Watch from your bell tower.


Judging someone, something only from their personal positions, from the point of view of local needs, is one-sided (about limitedness, narrowness of views, horizons) (disapproved).


The expression is actually Russian, but appeared, according to one version, under the influence of French. "patriotisme du clocher" - "local patriotism" (literally "bell tower patriotism"). The word "clocher" - "bell tower" in French in a number of phraseological units symbolizes parochial, narrow interests, petty-bourgeois limitations. According to another version, the expression is associated with the use of bell towers in Russian villages. Since the bell tower was the tallest building, it served in the old days as an observation and guard post. From the bell tower one could notice a fire or the approach of enemies, and by striking the bell - to warn of danger (cf. "to ring all the bells" - "raise the alarm"). But from the bell tower you can see not so far, so the expression negatively characterizes a person with a narrow outlook.

Improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells 14.06.2024

The latest solar technology research represents a significant breakthrough in improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells. This method, based on the use of pulsed light, offers promise for simplifying the production and expanding the applications of these cells. A research team from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology has developed an innovative method that uses pulsed light to improve the electrical conductivity of PbS solar cells. This method can significantly reduce the processing time required to achieve similar results. PbS quantum dot solar cells have significant potential in solar technology due to their photovoltaic properties. However, the formation of defects on their surface can reduce their performance. The new method helps suppress defect formation and improve electrical conductivity. Using strong light to complete the process ... >>

Changes in a father's brain after the birth of a child 13.06.2024

A recent study conducted by scientists from the Hefei Institute of Physical Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found interesting changes in the brains of men after becoming fathers. These changes were associated with involvement in child care, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Scientists found that men who became fathers experienced a loss of brain volume after giving birth. This volume loss was associated with greater involvement in parenting, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Researchers have found significant changes in men's brains between the prenatal and postnatal periods. In particular, there was a loss of gray matter volume, especially in parts of the brain responsible for higher functions such as language, memory, problem solving and decision making. Men who paid more attention to their children and spent more time with them lost more gray matter in their brains. This also affected their mental health ... >>
