    On Monday’s Backchat, we’re talking about pressure from transport operators for substantial in-creases in their fares.

    The bus companies have applied to raise fares by as much as 20 percent, amid higher operating costs and falling passenger numbers, with lawmakers suggesting that the government extend fuel subsidies to lessen fare increases.

    Urban taxi operators are also seeking a $6 rise in the flag fall, pointing to higher costs for insurance and fuel, while the Star Ferry wants to double the amount that adult passengers have to pay -- up to $8.40 per trip.

    Tram fares have already gone up by 15.4 percent this year.

    After 9.15am, we’ll talk about the new political set-up in Malaysia.

    And at 9.25am, we'll be joined by RTHK sports reporter Atom Cheung with the latest on the football World Cup.

    On Wednesday’s Backchat we’re talking about how to stem child abuse, amid a series of high-profile abuse cases involving both domestic incidents, and at childcare facilities.
    Speaking about the latest case of alleged abuse at a care centre run by the Po Leung Kuk, Chief Executive John Lee said authorities are working to strengthen laws against abuse, while it may enlist the help of trustworthy independent bodies to conduct surprise inspections at childcare institutions.
    Could more inspections help to ensure childcare staff don’t go over the line? Are care centres ade-quately staffed, and are they given enough training?
    After 0915, we will look at why NASA has purposely crashed a spacecraft into an asteroid.
