What It Was Like At The Oklahoma State Capitol During The Teachers’ Walkout (HBO)

Tens of thousands of teachers, educators and supporters descended on the Capitol building in Oklahoma this morning as part of a long-planned school work stoppage.
The protests happened despite the passage of House Bill 1010, a revenue package that increased teacher pay by an average of $6100 and added $50 million dollars of funding for textbooks, supplies and student activities. After signing the bill this past Thursday, Governor Mary Fallin declared it a “historic evening for the state of Oklahoma,” and intimated that a work stoppage might have been averted.
Those hopes were almost immediately dashed.
Teachers organizations around the state, led by the Oklahoma Education Association (OEA), just about unanimously called for the walkout to go on as planned, citing the fact that the legislature had only come up with $50 million of the $200 million the teachers say they need to pay for everything from textbooks to supplies to extra-curricular activities.
“It amounts to about one textbook per child and that will not solve the funding crisis in education,” Alicia Priest, President of the OEA, said.
VICE News followed Kambra Reynolds, a second grade teacher in Norman, as she went with her fellow educators to the Capitol on the first day of their walkout.

New Laws May Require Teachers To Get Training In Teaching Kids About Sexual Consent (HBO)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

Lauren Atkins is a 17-year-old high school senior in Norman, Oklahoma. She thinks she might want to run for president someday. Last year, she was junior class homecoming princess.

And that year, she says she was raped at a high school party, after drinking so much she says she was unable to consent.

“I was passed out — like throwing up on a toilet. He shouldn’t have even thought about having sex with me,” she told VICE News in an interview. “If that’s not a sign that I’m not able to make my own decisions then I don’t know what is.”

The incident inspired Atkins to work with Oklahoma activist Stacey Wright and freshman Democratic state Rep. Jacob Rosecrants to pass legislation she believes will help prevent similar incidents in the future.

The bill, nicknamed “Lauren’s Law,” would establish training for Oklahoma public school teachers to educate their students on sexual consent in the classroom.

In a series of Snapchat messages and texts Atkins exchanged with the boy in the days following the incident, which were shared with VICE News, they argued about whether they had intercourse, and he says she gave consent earlier in the night. Atkins denies this, and filed a police report, but the District Attorney declined to prosecute.

VICE News made multiple unsuccessful attempts to reach the boy. The DA’s office said through a spokesperson that they didn’t have enough evidence to move forward with a case.

Oklahoma law defines consent as “the affirmative, unambiguous and voluntary agreement to engage in a specific sexual activity during a sexual encounter which can be revoked at any time,” and says consent can’t be given by an individual who’s “mentally or physically incapacitated either through the effect of drugs or alcohol or for any other reason.”

Atkins believes that, if the boy had known this, he might not have done what he did.

​This segment originally aired on February 26, 2018, on VICE News Tonight on HBO.

Clark French meets Norman Baker: “The truth is out there” | Cannabis News Network

Were it not for Norman Baker, the truth on the UK’s failing drug policy would never have been published. Conservatives tried to sweep it under the carpet, but thanks to Norman, the truth is out there.

For over 43 years, there had been no independent review of drug policy in the UK. Until 2014, when Norman Baker (former Liberal Democrat MP) forced the publication of the “Drugs: international comparators” report.

Clark French, a medicinal cannabis patient from the UK and Director for the United Patients Alliance, sat down with Norman Baker for an interview.
