1. Is a mistrial for Bill Cosby a defeat for sexual assault survivors everywhere? Yes.

2. Will a new tunnel help ease Auckland's congestion woes? Thousands of people stopped by for a public open day for the Waterview Connection, which is set to open to traffic in July.

3. What was Nicky Wagner thinking? The Minister for Disability Issues is under fire for a tweet insulting the disabled.

4. When will more people recognise the rising hate and intolerance in US culture? The US Department of Education says it will scale back investigations into civil rights violations at public schools.

5. Can we talk about video games and discrimination against women? It remains a problem.
