阮穎嫻:抗疫制度人情大不同

每逢有大事發生,學術界都會趕着發表論文。首先,學者希望對世界有貢獻,做大家關注的題目,幫助改善社會。更重要的是,新的題材無人寫過,大家又有需求,寫出文來好像會有更多人引用。早於2020年4月,我已經見過一篇關於肺炎與經濟的學術期刊文章,當中用了一個民調,民調的日期和投稿日期只相隔7天,一個多月後已過了評審及修改完畢,滾水淥腳地被學術期刊接受了。那時候,資料還不全,有些國家疫情才剛爆發。具創見的理論貴精不貴多,學術評審及修改過程隨時要上一年半載才被接納刊登,但編輯為了期刊的人氣,有時還是會快出。

韓流追星經濟圈(文:阮穎嫻、伍善恒)

由Wonder Girls、少女時代,到Blackpink、BTS(防彈少年團),韓國歌唱偶像團體(韓團)近年風靡萬千觀眾,同一方程式不斷複製並獲得成功。由韓國練習生選拔制度開始,未出道的歌手要接受嚴格訓練,一日練舞10多小時,長不夠漂亮就去整容,等訓練三五七年,就有機會組團出道。嚴格訓練加上公司的華麗包裝,以雄厚財力推出洗腦舞曲,韓團的表現整齊、有技巧、風格盡現,令人目不暇給。着重視覺表演的韓團,在網絡串流年代佔盡優勢。
