    Donald Trump assassination attempt / Exhibition on polar education

    On Friday's Backchat, Global Focus talks about safety and security protocols surrounding leading political figures, following the assassination attempt against Donald Trump.

    Nearly a week has passed since the former US President and Republican Party nominee narrowly escaped death, instead receiving minor injury, when a bullet grazed his right ear at a rally in Pennsylvania.
    One person attending the rally died after also being hit, while the 20-year-old shooter -- whose motives remain under investigation by the FBI -- was killed by counter assault teams.
    Security officials have been under pressure to explain why the gunman was able to position himself on a nearby rooftop.
    It was the first time since 1981 that a leading US political figure has been shot, although four US presidents have been assassinated in the course of history.
    After 9:50, we learn more from the organisers of a new exhibition promoting polar research.

    Hong Kong's rising income gap / Use of Metaverse at university

    主持人:Janice Wong and Philip Wong

    On Friday’s Backchat, we look at Hong Kong’s wealth gap, after a new Oxfam report suggested that economic inequality here is at its worst in a decade. 

    It found the richest 10 percent make almost 60 times more than the poorest; a fifth of the population were below the poverty line as of the first quarter of the year; and economically inactive households – mostly elderly people and homemakers – make up a large proportion of the bottom 10 percent.
    The charity says the government can help by creating more jobs for the underprivileged, and by reviewing Hong Kong’s minimum wage every year to make sure it keeps up with inflation.
    Do you think the wealth gap is at its widest in a decade? Is inequality getting worse? What’s the best way to address the problem?
    After 9:45am we dive into the Metaverse and see how two universities are using the virtual space to educate their students.
