"Some" shopkeepers support turning Des Voeux Road Central into pedestrian zone  Listenfacebook
A concern group campaigning to turn Des Voeux Road Central into a pedestrian zone says its proposed plan to pedestrianise parts of the road for three months have gained the support of some affected shopkeepers. Walk D-V-R-C is proposing to close two blocks near the Western Market to traffic from April to June next year, and they've asked over half of the 58 shops there what they think. While half of them are in support, the rest are either neutral or have reservations. Annemarie Evans asked Board Chairman Markus Shaw whether the seemingly lacklustre response is good enough for the plan to go ahead.
Property consultancy firm paints grim picture of local housing market  Listenfacebook
Property consultancy firm Jones Lang LaSalle has warned local home prices could drop by as much as 25 percent by the end of next year, if the trade war between China and the United States worsens and local stocks continue to fall. The firm says regardless of what happens, it expects prices to go down by at least 15 percent, ending a decade-long rising trend. The company has renewed its call for the government to unwind its cooling measures, fearing a hard landing for the housing market. Priscilla Ng asked Denis Ma, the firm's head of research, if we are already seeing a clear downward trend.

A new BBC research has found that a rising tide of nationalism in India is driving ordinary citizens to spread fake news. The study found that facts were less important to some than the emotional desire to bolster national identity. RTHK's Delhi correspondent Murali Krishnan told Annemarie Evans that real news are now often buried in a barrage of false information, and the problem is only set to get even worse.
