    Obesity and Healthiness / Police crackdown on jaywalking

    On Monday's Backchat, an unhealthy city. The latest large scale study by the Department of Health shows more than half of adults are overweight or obese, we don't eat enough vegetables and have too much salt. 28% have high blood pressure.  Where only a third of us drank alcohol 15 years ago, that number has rocketed to more than 60%. Are we so unhealthy, what's changing, and what can we do about it? Call us with your diagnosis and prescription on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk. After 9.20, police crackdown on jaywalking.

    Revitalization of Industrial Buildings / Murray Road Car Park Site

    On Thursday's Backchat we're talking about the use of old industrial buildings, and their potential as venues for live performances, art exhibitions, or other purposes. The matter came to prominence early this month when the authorities raided the Hidden Agenda live music club, which was operating illegally in an industrial building in Kwun Tong. Several overseas performers were also arrested, accused of not having work visas. While the Chief Executive and others have stressed the need to ensure public safety, there are also calls for a relaxation in the laws to allow greater use of otherwise empty spaces. And there's the controversy - highlighted by the Ombudsman - over industrial canteens housed in such buildings also serving outside customers. So what do you think? Do existing rules need an overhaul? How carefully do we need to proceed when safety is clearly a factor? After 9.20: the Murray Road Car Park site in Central is sold for a record sum.  (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email backchat@rthk.hk or text 6393 5925)
