1. Is Aotearoa ready for Trump? One of the Orange One's top officials, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, is set to visit next week.

2. Should America's successful missile defence test have North Korea shaking in its boots? The United States has successfully tested a weapon that can intercept incoming intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). Had the test failed, experts say war with the northeast Asian nation would have been much more likely.

3. Who would want to ban Wonder Woman? Lebanon's government does - because lead actor Gal Gadot is Israeli.

4. What do you think of men who pee in public? A new public awareness campaign in India featuring women shaming men who pee in public - and which brings attention to the lack of sanitation in the country and how it's particularly a women's health issue - has people talking.

5. Is The Handmaid's Tale great protest inspiration? Protesters throughout the US have been donning cloaks and bonnets from the show at rallies for equality and women's rights.
