「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

串字比賽

串字比賽


【明報專訊】 美國一名13歲男童憑「serrefine」一字,奪得今年小學生串字大賽冠軍。

伊雲將可獲得總值35000美元的獎品及獎座,他表示,對於勝出不感到出奇,但他的愛好是音樂及數學,不是串字。

伊雲在決賽中,面對來自加拿大的對手,最後他憑「serrefine」(小的鉗子),擊敗對手,成為冠軍。

但另一名曾5度進入決賽的13歲男童史密爾就在第5輪中出局,當他要串「clevis」(馬蹄鐵),串錯了「clevice」(一種緊縮裝置),最終無緣冠軍


荷李活把串字比賽拍成電影 Akeelah and the Bee

Laurence Fishburne as Dr.Larabee

Keke Palmer as Akeelah

Angela Bassett as Mother

Directed by:

trailer







A precocious eleven-year-old girl, Akeelah Anderson, from south Los Angeles, is discovered to have a talent for words.



In spite of the objections of her mother Wanda, Akeelah enters a spelling contest. Her gift takes her to compete in the National Spelling Bee, the most famous competition of its kind in the world.




On the way, she is helped by a forthright, mysterious teacher, Dr. Larabee, and other members of her community.


美國非洲裔女孩對串字很有天份﹐被學校選中參加聯校串字比賽﹐輕易奪冠。當她再進軍美國地區性比賽﹐一步一步進軍州份的比賽﹐難度愈來愈高。幸得一位教授願意指導她。 但她的母親為保護她﹐以免受到挫敗﹐決定要求學校為她退出比賽。當然反而令她提高鬥志﹐一級一級的步上更高的全國性﹐串字比賽。 面對全國高手﹐究竟鹿死誰手........

















最後剩下﹐一個父母對他寄望很大的美籍華裔男孩﹐和主角美籍非裔女孩兩人對決。到分勝負的一對「字」時﹐華裔的串錯了他的「字」﹐而非裔得到的一個「字」﹐其中一個音節﹐有一個特別串法﹐是華裔的一位曾經教過非裔的﹐她不可能會忘記﹐她要拿下最後勝利? 還是要有其他選擇呢?

Are you good at Spelling???
