1. Did someone try to bomb a Christmas market in Germany? Police in Potsdam were forced to evacuate a popular Weihnachtsmarkt in the German city when a suspicious package containing nails, wires and batteries arrived at a pharmacy.

2. Is a backlash to #MeToo coming? It may be - and we can blame the same powerful men facing a reckoning for the awful things they've been doing.

3. What happened to the Black Ferns? From defending champions last time to no medal at all this time around for the Black Ferns at the Women’s World Sevens Series in Dubai, after they lost to the United States in the quarterfinals. We warned that this could happen.

4. Do you have Kaspersky anti-virus software on your computer? You should probably get rid of it immediately - the UK government is warning everyone to do just that after finding its code is written in such a way the Russian government can use it to spy on people, steal their files, and infect and take over their computers.

5. What do you know about women and jazz music? It's a fascinating legacy.
