[ad_1] 世界排名第253位的黃澤林,此仗越級挑戰排名第27位的梅薩迪不落下風。他在首盤第3局遭破發後仍緊咬局數,以4:6僅負。19歲的他次盤第3局再被攻破發球局,但第10局亦回敬破發,扳回局數5:5。不過,梅薩迪之後連取兩局,使黃澤林以5:7再飲恨,首圈止步並完成所有賽事。 縱使職業生涯首次ATP巡迴賽之旅,在單、雙打均一輪遊作結,黃澤林過去兩天表現已贏盡在場球迷掌聲,賽後更獲梅薩迪盛讚發球出色,「將來有能力成為具威脅的球手」。對於對手的稱讚,Coleman亦滿意本仗發揮,並回應道:「對方這樣說並非必然,很高興他認為我日後能跟他收窄差距。我會繼續努力,現時方向正確,訓練和配套都很好,不少人給予幫助,我相信自己可力爭上游,祝我好運吧」。 他又說,一連兩日重返網球路起點維園出戰,心情甚為激動,「我5歲在維園3號場開始學網球,到現在站在中央場對戰世界頂尖球手,感覺截然不同,沒有其他地方比這裏更適合進行我的巡迴賽處子戰」。他透露暫定下周會到泰國出戰ATP挑戰賽分站,2024年以打入大滿貫和巴黎奧運,以及躋身世界前100名為目標。 至於去年受右膝傷勢困擾的克羅地亞籍前「世三」球手施歷,今午迎來休戰近半年後的復出戰,面對5號種子、世界排名第25位的德國籍球手施祖夫。這名2014年美網冠軍全場錄得20次發球直接得分(Ace),並在首盤先取6:3;惟次盤開始體力不繼,全場錯失8個決勝分下,與對方連續兩盤拉鋸至「搶七」,終激戰3小時後,分別以細分4:7及7:9反負。 ATP香港公開賽明日將上演單打及雙打次圈,已在雙打亮相的單打次號種子卡查洛夫,與美籍3號種子堤亞科均會登場。 相關報道:網球|黃澤林港網賽男雙首圈止步 明轉戰男單首圈鬥梅薩迪 商竣程爆冷挫謝利 其他報道:足球|曼聯外借雲迪碧克予法蘭克福 朗尼遭伯明翰解僱 其他報道:英超|利物浦4:2力克紐卡素 拉開榜首優勢至3分 其他報道:亞洲盃|港足閉門友賽反勝中國隊 安達臣稱看見麾下進步 內媒揶揄國足「輸球又輸人」 其他報道:亞洲盃|潘沛軒入替梅開二度 港足閉門友賽反勝3人被逐中國隊 [ad_2] Source link

Put another way: the football project of Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund has lost seven of the past eight and their next three scheduled outings before February arrives appear as treacherous as this trip to Anfield.

iPhone 15 Pro 用戶留意!遇以下問題馬上要求 Apple 處理-ePrice.HK

[ad_1] 從市場分析機構的數據可以見到,iPhone 15 Pro 和 iPhone 15 Pro Max 是整個系列中較受歡迎的型號,相信不少用戶在上市不久已經入手,至今已經用了兩三個月。假如你一開始就有使用保護殼的習慣,版主建議你不時拆開檢查一下機身,是否出現外國用戶遇到的慘況。 有使用保護殼習慣 日前有外國 iPhone 15 Pro 用戶在 Reddit 討論區上載相片,表示手機機背的邊緣出現一些某種黏合劑的殘餘物。從相片可以見到,苦主的 iPhone 15 Pro 機背右上方和左下方,玻璃背板和鈦金屬機身接壤的位置有不少,類似膠水漬的灰黑色膠碎溢出。該附註表示自己一直有採用 Rhinoshield 保護殼,不知道為何會有如此情況發生,又感覺好像整塊機背就快剝落。 非單一案例與生產有關 有網民指苦主是否買了假貨或曾經不正當維修,但都被一一否認,幸好獲得另一名用戶力撐,表示自己的 iPhone 15 Pro 亦在使用後兩日出現類似情況,將手機帶回 Apple 後獲告知是生產時出了問題,用作固定機背玻璃的黏合劑沒有塗好,導致在邊緣溢出。之後有另一 iPhone 15 Pro 用戶表示遇到同樣情況但範圍較小,他最後用非常薄和鋒利的刀片,小心翼翼地將黏合劑切除。 或影響防水能力 假如不幸遇到上述情況,首先不要多手去嘗試將黏合劑捽走,甚至是進一步拉扯,因為這樣做隨時會對機身的 IP68 防塵防水能力構成影響,所以亦要避免接觸到水份和入塵,然後在可行情況下盡快聯絡 Apple 報備並要求對方處理。 資料來源:phonearena   [ad_2] Source link

Had shouted dibs on the Ultra before me, so I settled for the Pro. It wasn’t a whole lot of settling, I thought, since the Pro had more or less the same main camera (1-inch sensor, minus the dual aperture), and a telephoto that had its own super power – super-close-focusing, which didn’t

Resident Evil 4 for iPhone review

[ad_1] Resident Evil 4 has a special place in gaming history. Released back in 2005 for the GameCube and later for the PlayStation 2, it was a paragon of the third-person survival horror genre with its incredibly tense action sequences, amazing level design, terrifying enemies, and memorable characters and writing. It carved a niche for itself and it was for many — including myself — their favorite installment in the series. Having played that version on a PS2 all those years ago, I was genuinely stoked to see it getting a proper remaster earlier this year along the lines of

正能量丨伴失智養母走人生最後一程 胡渭康不留遺憾:她拖著我手離開 – 香港經濟日報 – TOPick – 娛樂

[ad_1] 梁朝偉主演的TVB經典劇集《新紥師兄》,至今仍令人難忘,主題曲《伴我啟航》同樣深入民心。主唱之一的小虎隊成員胡渭康(William),一直在演藝圈默默耕耘。 近年他積極投入義工服務,有著行善的心,某程度是因為曾照顧患有認知障礙的養父母,在跟義工接觸過程中,更體會到助人自助的道理。 胡渭康慈善騷為義工組織籌款 韋綺姗顏志恒支嚳儀暖心支持 ▲ 慈善音樂會聯同韋綺珊、文佩玲、顏志恒、魏嘉信及支嚳儀等嘉賓演出。 胡渭康將在本周四在灣仔伊館舉行《 Love Returns慈善演唱會》,為在香港成立已超過50年的「義務工作發展局」籌募經費,並邀來圈中好友包括韋綺姍、文佩玲、顏志恒、魏嘉信及支嚳儀及業餘管弦樂團的樂手共同演出。 他解說慈善演出的原因:「義務工作發展局是一間非牟利慈善機構,是一個很有意義的團體,自己是在擔任義工活動時,認識了現任主席彭韻僖律師,希望藉著演出,令到坊間對他們有更多認識,將來可以一同參予義工活動。助人自助是中國人的儒家思想,如果可以把之變成生活一部分,社會也會更加和諧。」 照顧失智雙親 胡渭康有多年參予義工的經驗,說到源起,也跟個人經歷有關。 約20年前,他原已淡出幕前移居英國生活,後來得知湊大自己的養父母先後患有腦退化,考順的他隨即返港照料雙親,同時開始重投娛圈工作。 ▲ 他表示做義工時會遇上很多突發狀況,要學懂執生,也隨時須要作出危機處理。(曾耀輝攝) 他憶述:「因為父母有認知障礙症,最初在照顧上都頗為吃力,後來因為在一些活動上接觸不同的義工和社工團隊,透過他們識誏識了很多在生理和生理上的護理知識,可說是互相幫助。」 他自言個性喜歡跟人傾談,加上曾有照顧雙親的經驗,,自覺擅長跟老人家和小朋友溝通,也能把人生經歷分享給年青的義工們。 胡渭康分享:「無論跟長者或小孩,最重要是有耐性,特別是失智長者,基本上跟小朋友沒分別,例如同一條問題會不斷提問,那麼便要懂得分散其注意力,令他們把焦點轉移其他地方。我們探訪長者,除非他們提起,否則很少會主動問及他們的家人,因為害怕會觸及一些不開心的事,所以能做一個聆聽者也很重要。」 體會死亡不可怕 胡渭康當日返港照顧雙親,雖然兩老先後患上腦退化,亦相繼離開人世,雖然難過,但沒有遺憾。「生命一定有終點,體會到死亡並不可怕,反而更關心在人生最後的階段,能否擁有具quality的生活,在這方面,父母都是有福氣的,亦能很圓滿的走完他們的人生。」 他憶述媽媽的失智症較為嚴重,後期甚至已忘卻了語言能力。「我感到她變得像嬰孩,甚麼也會笑,也可能代表她的記憶中開心的事較多,也像走了一個圈,重回人生起點。」 胡渭康清楚記得,自己是陪伴著母親至最後一刻。「媽媽後期因維生指數下跌,需要入院,我陪伴了她兩日,之後因為有工作一定要離開,便跟媽媽叮囑會回去探她。第二天我再到醫院,護士說媽媽應該都差不多不行了,我覺得她想等到我來,最後我是可以拖著她的手直至離世,這是很感恩的。」 最新影片推介:余香凝姜大衛專訪 哪吒不怕海龍王 胡渭康曾為事業上未有突破,故前往英國進修及工作,現在回流超過20年,他相信自己不會再離開。「年少時經常因工作而出埠、登台,可說飄泊了半生,也住過很多地方,更發現香港的確是全世界最好的城市之一。」 他指出:「譬如講醫療,在外國如果沒有買醫保,根本負擔不到醫藥費,甚至要排期看醫生也難。我當然知道民間疾苦,因自己也會去公立醫院,明白要排8小時看醫生的情況,但更知道,有很多地方的病人連排隊的機會也沒有,就會更加懂得珍惜。」 ▲ 胡渭康樂於將自身照顧長者的經驗以及人生閱歷,分享給年青人作參考。(曾耀輝攝) 當年他參加第一屆新秀歌唱比賽入行,40年過去,胡渭康依然熱愛演藝工作。談到夢想,他相信要能平衡現實:「以個人的經驗分享,夢想固然重要,但也要能填飽肚子。我有很多朋友都是音樂高手,但他們都各有正職工作,因為明白先要照顧好家庭,所以現在有《中年好聲音》節目是很好,可以令一些對音樂有熱誠的中年人,能夠有舞台再次圓夢。」 成名作《伴我啟航》有這樣的歌詞:哪吒不怕海龍王。胡渭康說其實十分勵志。「年青人就是要勇於嘗試,不要事事也說躺平,如果社會能有更多擁有正向思維的年青人,才可以迎接挑戰。」 記者:陳家昌 [ad_2] Source link

[ad_1] 自新冠疫情平復後,世界各地均千方百計爭取旅客重臨,香港縱使遲起步,也不例外。然而,最近半年不少訪港旅客都有不愉快經驗。先是去年8月份啟德郵輪碼頭大混亂,到近日國泰(00293)因為「機師流感」取消大批航班,同時由於跨境巴士不足及電腦「超負荷」,大批內地旅客於跨年除夕晚上滯留街頭,似乎香港海、陸、空都出現「趕客」情況。除因旅業「重啟」需時適應,這可能亦關乎經濟前景不明朗,企業迴避長遠投資(例如增聘機師、升級系統),恐會陷入惡性循環,當局須認真一點,想辦法提升商界信心。 國泰鬧機師荒 跨境巴「甩轆」 聖誕節剛過,又到新年,際此旅遊旺季,大量市民外遊,同時也有很多旅客訪港。可是作為本港最大航企的國泰,卻在這個黃金檔期臨時取消了近百航班,涵蓋東京、首爾、悉尼、曼谷、北京、上海等熱門航線,導致許多旅客大失預算。據國泰解釋,近期流感盛行,告病假的機師比預期多,人手不敷應用。 誠然,近日流感爆發乃客觀事實,相信沒有旅客希望機師「捱着感冒」駕駛飛機。但在數以十計航企當中,何以唯獨國泰需要大動作取消航班?據估計,由於過去幾年疫潮期間,該公司曾經裁員超過8000人,包括接近1000名機師;在疫情平復、旅業 [ad_2] Source link
