Move the chains - (USA) Derived from the act of moving the chains in an American football game when a team gets a first down, this expression describes taking a project to the next step, especially one that has lost its momentum for one reason or another. Example: Frustrated with our lack of progress, our boss finally shouted, "Make a decision today about which one to use, and let's move the chains on this."

The action of SU (1, 1) is transitive, hence we can move z1 to the origin, and by rotation, we can then move z2 to the positive half-axis.
