Friday Shake Up: grand romantic gestures, Muck Up Day and summer music festivals

What's changed a year after ACT legalised cannabis?

This time last year, the ACT became the first place in Australia to legalise cannabis. At the time, opponents warned of an increase in drug driving offences and road accidents. Has any of that actually eventuated? We find out. Also, one of Australia's biggest murder mysteries has been resolved today, after a judge found Bradley Robert Edwards was found guilt of two of the Claremont killings. We also look at why some elite boys' schools have toxic cultures, as evidenced by recent reports of gross Muck Up Day challenges. And, researchers find evidence that how romantic you are could actually be in your genes.

The legacy left by the passing of the Notorious RBG

This weekend, your feeds were probably filled with people farewelling Ruth Bader Ginsburg AKA RBG. Why is she such a cult figure, and what happens next in finding a replacement? And, last week the Govt was all about natural gas; this week it's likely you'll hear about hydrogen so we're giving you all the info you need to keep up with the announcements. Also, archaeologists in Egypt have uncovered a heap of well-preserved sarcophagi, and there could be a whole lot more still to find.
