Kenya's little Obamas: an inspired generation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KR1ohA-xWs

Since Barack Obama took office in 2008, children across Kenya have been named after the US president.

Now in K'Ogelo, the home town of his father, little Obamas are preparing for the arrival of their more famous and powerful namesake. Obama broke boundaries in the US by becoming the first black president, and Kenyan parents hope that their sons will go on to emulate his achievements.

Owen Jones meets Caroline Lucas ► http://bit.ly/OJCarolineLucas

I went to meet Caroline Lucas, the Green Party's only MP and former leader, to talk about what it means to be a Green, whether or not she's a socialist and to find out what hope she holds for the future.

We also chatted about why the Labour Party and Ed Miliband failed so badly at the last election, the need for a progressive coalition and what she thinks of the image of the Greens as a party for middle-class, sandal-wearing hippies.

Can Arctic oil drilling help save the climate? | Keep it in the ground  ► http://bit.ly/ArcticOilKiitg

Shell has spent over $6bn on Arctic drilling without so far producing a drop of oil.
Subscribe to The Guardian ► http://is.gd/subscribeguardian
It is on the verge of another attempt to extract some of the estimated 400bn barrels equivalent of oil and gas at the top of the world. But drilling in the Arctic is expensive and dangerous. And oil prices have fallen dramatically. Will this and government action thwart Shell's ambitions?

The Migrants Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) is a privately funded search-and-rescue vessel, was founded in 2013 and is made up of international humanitarian workers, security professionals, medical staff and maritime officers.

Has LGBT Pride been hijacked? | Owen Jones talks..

On his YouTube channel, Owen Jones asks: has the LGBT movement been hijacked by big business?

The LGBT movement was once about protest and struggle, winning many of the rights LGBT people have today. But now it's become a convenient way for dodgy corporations to 'pinkwash' their reputations - and there's a complacency that all the battles have been won. Is it time to put the politics back into LGBT?
