[Event]16年後回望「談笑風生」,香港記者曾經的巔峰歲月

張寶華,曾任電視新聞記者,因樣貌標緻,被稱為新聞之花、寶娃娃。現為上市公司管理層、電台節目主持人及專欄作家。訪問過許多名人,包括查良鏞(金庸)、江澤民、羅傑承、劉德華、鄭秀文、黎智英、唐英年、梁振英、陳可辛、王維基等。曾為信報、經濟日報、蘋果日報、星島日報、東周刊及明報等多份報章雜誌撰寫專欄, ,亦有多部著述。現時是香港足球總會市務及傳訊委員會成員。

她見證過香港媒體最好的日子,曾經滿世界採訪,跑得比誰都快;後來從媒體圈跨至電影圈,見證不同領域的中港關係變化。16年前,她對江澤民的訪問令她意外成為大陸年輕人心中的“膜蛤教主“,也因此機緣巧合結識了許多90後中國年輕人。她怎樣看香港、香港媒體、中港關係近20年來的變化?她怎樣認識今天中港兩地的年輕人?她印象中的「長者」又是什麼樣?機會難得,不容錯過。

Where will the next next Olympic Games be held?

The original article is posted on Caixin Datanews: 下届夏季奥运在东京,再下一届呢?

里约奥运会落幕,闭幕式上日本首相安倍晋三以超级玛丽造型告诉全世界:东京来了。东京于2013年在最终的三个城市中获得胜利,取得2020年夏季奥运会的主办权。

从1896年至今现代奥运会的申办城市数量来看,世界各国对奥运的热情在慢慢降温。申奥争夺高峰集中在20世纪20年代至60年代。最多的一次是1936年夏季奥运会举办权争夺战,有13个城市参选,单纳粹德国就有柏林、科隆、纽伦堡、法兰克福四个城市参选。而1984年夏季奥运会举办权则只有洛杉矶一家参选。最近几次夏季奥运会申办城市数量仅维持在四个上下。

里约奥运会这届“惊喜处处”的奥运会差一点就在西班牙马德里举行。奥运主办权遴选信息网站GamesBids资料显示,在2009您的第一轮投票中,西班牙的马德里票数领先巴西里约热内卢,不过在其后两轮投票里约赶超马德里。 Continue reading “Where will the next next Olympic Games be held?”
