Australian rallies demand safe streets for women after Israeli student murder
Several thousand people marched through major Australia cities on Sunday calling for safety for women after an Israeli exchange student was murdered in Melbourne. The marches, part of the Women's March rallies held around the world in support of women's rights, gathered some 3,000 people in Sydney, who in their chants demanded safe streets for women in Australian cities. Aiia Maasarwe, 21, was killed when walking home after a night out with friends in Melbourne, Australia's second-largest city, earlier this week.

Trump Tweaks Border Stance a Bit in Bid to Shift Shutdown Blame
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected the proposal on Saturday, hours before Trump outlined it in a White House speech to the nation. Trump said he would extend protections for three years for so-called Dreamers -- young people bought to the country illegally as children --and make other concessions in exchange for his demanded $5.7 billion toward a border wall. White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney mused to reporters that he is "very curious" to see how Democrats explain a "no" vote on Trump's plan under those circumstances.

Shutdown and border security: Trump promises 'major' announcement
US President Donald Trump said Saturday he would make a "major announcement" later in the day on the government shutdown that has halted many government services, as Democrats reportedly made a new offer aimed at ending the bitter partisan standoff over immigration and border security. "It will be an important statement," Trump told reporters on the White House lawn before leaving on a short trip to Delaware to pay tribute to four Americans killed in an attack claimed by the Islamic State group in Syria. While suggestions of "major" announcements can be overblown, Trump's comments follow a New York Times report that Democrats have added more than $1 billion to their previous offer of $1.3 billion for new border security -- one of the first signs of possible movement after weeks of rancor between the president and opposition Democrats.

Trump shutdown announcement: President offers Daca extensions for undocumented migrants in exchange for border wall funding
Donald Trump has proposed a compromise to reopen the federal government which would provide extensions to protections for certain undocumented immigrants in exchange for $5.7bn (£4.4bn) to fund a wall along the US-Mexico border. Under the president's plan, migrants who arrived to the country at a young age and qualified for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme (Daca), as well as other immigrants under Temporary Protected Status (TPS), would receive extensions to their protections from deportation. "If we are successful in this effort, we will have the best chance … At real, bipartisan immigration reform," the president said, before outlining the proposal he says received input from border security professionals.

Trump government shutdown - live: President to make 'major announcement' on border dispute amid Mueller probe reports
Donald Trump is set to make a "major announcement" on the government shutdown and the US-Mexico border on Saturday afternoon as the standstill over funding for his proposed wall continues into its fifth week. The White House has not provided any details about what exactly the president will reveal at 3pm EST today (8pm UK time), but he is not expected to sign the national emergency declaration he has been threatening to use for several weeks. Mr Trump has been in a standoff with Democrats in Congress for the past 29 days after he refused to sign a government funding bill without $5.7 billion for his border wall.

Creative Super X-Fi review: A 'holographic audio' eargasm
Few things in technology are guaranteed to bring you actual joy, but Creative's Super X-Fi just might qualify for that list.

In short, the Super X-Fi distills decades of audio work into a tiny, portable dongle no bigger than a USB thumb drive that transforms smartphone, laptop, or PC audio with "holographic audio," according the company.

While that sounds like a lot of superfluous ad copy, we have to admit that after weeks of using the Super X-Fi, the company is on to something. We'd almost believe Creative's claim that it has found the "holy grail" of audio, but we're disinclined to recall the Quest Knights just yet.

Best gaming mouse: Find your perfect match
The mouse is a simple tool: point and click. That's it. But if you're a PC gamer, you know that pushing virtual paper around on your desktop isn't the same as fragging bots and shooting zombies. (Not even remotely.) 

What's more, picking the right gaming mouse is an intensely personal decision. Every little detail—its overall shape and size, the shape and placement its buttons, its cable (or lack thereof), its weight, its materials—can change how you feel about it. More than any other peripheral, a mouse is the hardest to recommend, because there is no objectively perfect mouse. Everyone's hands are different.

That said, we can guide you on your search. Below are our recommendations for gaming mice, built on years of experience first and foremost as gamers, and second as writers here at PCWorld.
