    Iranian President Raisi's death / 50 years of China-Malaysia relations / Calligraphy and cognitive health

    On this week’s edition of Global Focus, we're discussing the life, death and legacy of Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi who died in a helicopter crash earlier this week.

    The death of the President with his Foreign Minister is likely to prompt a power struggle in the cleric dominated nation. We explore his legacy and the national and regional implications of the succession battle. An election is mandated to take place in 50 days from the confirmation of his death.
    After 9:30, we're looking into Malaysia's Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's visit to Hong Kong and the mainland, as China and Malaysia celebrate 50 years of relations.
    And after 9:45, we're learning about how cognitive activities can prevent dementia, following the release of a study that found Chinese calligraphy beneficial to our brain’s health.

    Hong Kong's increasing divorce rates / ESF's 4.8% school fee increase

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Paul Zimmerman

    On Wednesday’s Backchat, we're be talking about the increasing divorce rate in Hong Kong.

    Divorce applications rose 25% last year and splitting couples had to wait longer to have their cases heard in Family Court, with the average waiting time reaching nearly three months. Lawyers say they’re starting to see some couples divorce much earlier into their marriages, often due to extramarital affairs or conflicts over parenting.
    But rising divorce rates aren’t unique to Hong Kong and some jurisdictions, such as France, are starting to make the process less painful by allowing consenting couples to avoid a court hearing.
    So is time for Hong Kong to do the same? Why are more people divorcing? And how does it affect their children?
    After 9:45, we discuss ESF's plan for a 4.8% increase in school fees.
