1. summon

Today we are going to learn “summon”. It means to order someone to come to a place.
eg:
(1) The president summoned Taylor to Washington.
(2) It will require a new mindset — that we summon the will, as nations and as partners, to do what this moment in history demands.

 

2. press briefing

Another word is “press briefing”. It means a media event in which newsmakers invite journalists to hear them speak and, most often, ask questions.
eg:
(1) “It would be a great move for them to move here,” Bloomberg said at a press briefing.
(2) Those are the questions a journalist posed to the U.S. State Department during the November 28th Daily Press Briefing.
