Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Jamie"

The meaning of "Jamie" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa Jamie shut his mind to everything but the trackless waste ahead of him
“The trackless waste ahead of him”
I knew each several meanings But Trackless wate, ahead of him. I don’t understand it clearly And why there is no verb in second sentence??
A: Jamie shut his mind to everything but the trackless waste ahead of him.

Basic sentence:
Jamie shut his mind.

Prepositional phrase *modifying* shut:
to everything but the trackless waste ahead of him

In other words, what did he shut his mind to? To everything but...

So he shut his mind to *almost* everything, but he did NOT shut his mind to the trackless waste before him.

Trackless waste before him = a barren, wasteland (in front of him) without roads or paths or distinguishing features

So there is no second second sentence and no missing verb...it's just that the second half of this sentence is a long prepositional phrase.
Q: O que significa Jamie left the bathhouse and pushed his way down the crowded street to a saloon called the Sundowner.

Push one’s way down A to B

I understand this sentence...
But i want to know this sentence
Meaning!!! ?
A: "Push one’s way down A to B" simply means that you went from A to B. But it implies that the trip was difficult and you possibly used force. Too many people, hard to navigate through the crowd. You could have literally used force to get through and shoved people aside or you could have just move between people whenever you saw a gap instead of waiting for a bigger space to open up. The phrase sounds like something you read in a book.

I've heard the phrases that someone has to "fight the crowd" / someone had "fought through the crowd" a lot before. They have a similar meaning. I tend to hear people say them on big shopping days before holidays or storms. Most people do not literally fight it is just a phrase to show it was difficult.
Q: O que significa Jamie stepped out and got wet in the rain. to be unfaithful to a spouse or lover. Jeff has been stepping out on Judy. I was not stepping out!?

Q: O que significa Jamie and Tyrion were somewhat less than peas in a pod themselves.?
A: @hypnos135g: 'Two peas in a pod' is an expression that means two people get along and are happy together.

Usually used for best friends or siblings.

3) Brad’s parents don’t speak English as he does.
4) I didn’t expect I would pay so much money for my new computer.
?
A: 1. is correct, but it is wordy. Stylistically, "for not letting Ann know" sounds better when we have so many clauses

2. this sentence is just grammatically incorrect. Supposed + infinitive for this meaning. "I supposed going to the park would be easier" has a different meaning, as you see

3. This sounds like his parents have a different accent or manner of speaking

4. this variant is OK, in my view
Q: Qual é a diferença entre Jamie will have been in Australia for one year in April e Jamie will be in Australia for one year in April ?
