    My dispatch about how US border security does its job: https://youtu.be/VIY0FF3TE_E

    With original music by Rare Henderson: rarehenderson.com/audio

    For the first time ever in 2014, the U.S. recorded more undocumented migrants from Central America than from Mexico. In particular, 52,000 unaccompanied children were detained between October 2013 and June 2014. With what seemed to be a looming humanitarian crisis to deal with, the Obama administration enlisted the help of Mexico, and President Enrique Peña Nieto's administration.

    Together, they launched the Southern Border Program initiative: the U.S. provided funding, equipment, and training to Mexico in exchange for a crackdown along Mexico's southern border. After all, many would-be migrants from Central America to the U.S. must pass through Mexico first.

    This policy worked for a few years, but levels of undocumented migrants are on the rise again. And the mounting human costs make it increasingly difficult to call a success.
  • How job surveillance is transforming trucking in America
    How job surveillance is transforming trucking in America Automation is coming for truckers – but first, they're being watched.

    The promise of self-driving trucks will radically reshape one of America's most common jobs. There are 3.5 million professional drivers in the US, all of whom may face job displacement in the autonomous future being developed by companies like Otto, Daimler, and Tesla. But before robots take the wheel entirely, there will be a long period where truckers and artificial technology split the responsibilities of the work. The first big step toward that future comes in the form of the electronic logging device, a dashboard monitor that tracks speed, location, and a driver's schedule, and reports it to an employer or a third-party monitoring service. It has a lot of truckers worried.

  • The military coup in Zimbabwe, explained
    The military coup in Zimbabwe, explained Why the Zimbabwe coup is not a revolution.

    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    On November 14th 2017, Zimbabwe military troops drove tanks into the capital city, Harare. They patrolled the streets, blocked access to government buildings, and took over the state television station to insist….
    This is not a military takeover of government.

    Once praised as a war hero, Robert Mugabe helped Zimbabwe win independence from Great Britain in 1980. He became president under Zimbabwe’s new constitution with the support of the people.

    But soon, he digressed into a repressive dictator.

    He secured his power through aggression and threats, there have been reports of state-sponsored torture and killings.

    And even though Zimbabwe is technically a democracy, there’s evidence Mugabe rigged elections in his favor.

    Now that Mugabe is 93 years old, and reportedly in poor health, the fight for political influence is more important than ever.

    And it’s caused a split in Mugabe’s own party, the ZANU-PF.
    On one side we have the old guard lead by Mugabe’s sacked vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa. Like Mugabe, he fought for Zimbabwe’s independence and has a checkered past that includes human rights abuses against political opponents and ethnic minorities.

    After watching a viral video of a Jacksonville cop stopping a young black man for jaywalking, reporters Ben Conarck and Topher Sanders examine how “walking while black” can come at a high price. In this second piece of the Vox + ProPublica collaboration, they dig into how police citations for pedestrian violations often fall along the lines of race and poverty, and introduce us to some of the people fighting these tickets.

  • Sinking Rich: Speedboat Racing Through a Failed State
    Sinking Rich: Speedboat Racing Through a Failed State Most people blame the Venezuelan government for the country's profound economic and humanitarian crisis, but the government blames the elite. Yet while millions of ordinary Venezuelans marched on their capital city to protest against the government, the government was throwing money at the elite—sponsoring them to ride around on boats for a week for the world's longest speedboat race.

    VICE's Charlet Duboc drank, danced, and chatted with the race's oldest hands before meeting up with an indigenous, impoverished community for a look outside Venezuela's upper echelon.

  • Inside Danica Roem's Historic Victory
    Inside Danica Roem's Historic Victory Danica Roem made history on November 7, becoming the first openly transgender person to be elected and seated to a state legislature. VICE had exclusive access to Roem in the final hours of her campaign.

    The 33-year-old stepmom now represents District 13 in northern Virginia, an area that was controlled for more than two decades by Republican Bob Marshall, one of the state's most virulently anti-LGBT lawmakers. Roem's success in local politics has made a national impact, setting the stage for other first-time candidates and transgender people to run for—and win—elections across the country.

    How beauty brands failed women of color But the industry is changing – and Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty isn’t the only brand laying the foundation for a more inclusive beauty industry.

    Rihanna’s new makeup line Fenty Beauty has been an instant success — and it’s not only popular because Rihanna’s name is attached to it. Fenty Beauty carries a wide range of foundations — 40 to be exact — which has the beauty industry shook. Cosmetics and the beauty industry as a whole, has a long history of creating products that did not match deeper-toned people of color. There are a number of factors that have lead many mainstream beauty companies to having a narrow selection for people of color — and not all of those reasons are rooted in product development. With Fenty Beauty, Rihanna is showing the industry that it’s worth investing money and time into creating nuanced products beyond the ranges of ivory, beige, and tan.

  • Are You An Empath?
    Are You An Empath? In an age of unrest, narcissism and social media anxiety, VICE journalist, Hannah Ewens enters the superhuman world of empaths.

    An empath is someone who feels the emotional, mental, or physical state of another person, or animal. So if you feel the earth's pain or have a panic attack because someone near you is anxious, you might be an empath too.

    In science circles, the concept of empaths is dismissed as paranormal, but as we all struggle to fill the void, new age therapies are booming.

    Hannah visits a community of empaths in New York, led by David Sauvage - who charges clients up to 200 dollars per hour – to uncover the mysteries behind this phenomenon and find out if she is an empath herself…or if she’s just full of shit.

    ///

    Recent advancements in artificial intelligence and robotics have commentators worrying about the coming obsolescence of the human worker. Some in Silicon Valley are even calling for a basic minimum income provided by the government for everyone, under the assumption that work will become scarce. But many economists are skeptical of these claims, because the notion that the the economy offers a fixed amount of work has been debunked time and time again over the centuries. Fortunately, we don't need to divine the future of the labor market in order to prepare for it.

This small fishing town of about 500 people was hiding a complex, highly organized drug smuggling network responsible for running millions of pounds of marijuana from Colombia to Miami.

    Japan’s Shinkansen doesn’t look like your typical train. With its long and pointed nose, it can reach top speeds up to 150–200 miles per hour.

    It didn’t always look like this. Earlier models were rounder and louder, often suffering from the phenomenon of "tunnel boom," where deafening compressed air would rush out of a tunnel after a train rushed in. But a moment of inspiration from engineer and birdwatcher Eiji Nakatsu led the system to be redesigned based on the aerodynamics of three species of birds.

    Nakatsu’s case is a fascinating example of biomimicry, the design movement pioneered by biologist and writer Janine Benyus. It’s the idea that big challenges in design, engineering, and sustainability have often been solved before through 3.8 billion years of evolution on earth. We just have to go out and find them.

    The Nightmare World of Gang Stalking More than 10,000 people worldwide claim they're the victims of a vast organized surveillance effort designed to ruin their lives, a phenomenon known as "gang stalking." Mental health experts see gang stalking as a symptom of paranoia, but but the self-identified victims who insist what they're experiencing is real have come together online and in support groups to share their stories.

    VICE met up with a handful of Americans who claim their lives have been derailed by gang stalking to understand what serious consequences the phenomenon presents. Then we hear from Dr. Josh Bazell, one of many physicians who believes the victims of gang stalking are experiencing dangerous delusions that could be treated by mental health professionals.

    Catalonia’s independence movement, explained This referendum was not the region's first.

    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    On October 1st Catalonia held a controversial referendum on independence. Before the vote took place, the Spanish Constitutional Courts ruled the vote illegal and sent the national guard to stop it from happening. Despite government opposition, the vote was held and clashes between voters and police ensued.

    Ninety percent of the participants voted in favor of independence, but public surveys say that current support for independence in Catalonia is only 41 percent.

    Despite the contested referendum results, Catalonia has declared independence unilaterally. In response, Spain is moving to dissolve the Catalan regional government, remove its leaders from office and hold regional elections.

    You can read a full explainer on the situation via Sarah Wildman at our website: https://www.vox.com/world/2017/10/2/16393956/catalonia-catalan-independence-crackdown-vote-referendum

  • The Black Bloc: Inside America’s Hard Left
    The Black Bloc: Inside America’s Hard Left The left-leaning anti-fascist movement—or Antifa—has been around for decades, popping up in North America and Europe in response to rising white nationalist or fascist sentiments. Now, Antifa has made a resurgence in the US, where members clad in masks and nondescript black clothing physically confront groups of white supremacists and neo-Nazis who've started organizing in cities around the country.

    Since the 2016 presidential election, Antifa has become a staple at alt-right and Trump-related rallies that often result in violence. VICE met up with a few Antifa activists in Philadelphia who engage in “Black Bloc” actions to find out more about their ideology, tactics, and individual reasons for participating in a high-risk form of activism.

    China's MMA Club for Poor and Orphaned Boys In Chengdu, China, Enbo MMA Club has become a home for orphans and kids from impoverished homes who come to train as mixed martial arts experts. The club's founder, Mr. Enbo, has trained hundreds of young fighters free of charge, like Banma Duoji, an 18-year-old who grew up poor in a single-parent home in Tibet.

    On this episode of 'VICE INTL,' Banma explains how he ended up at the club, and how Enbo has become a father figure who's helped him turn into one of the group's fiercest fighters. Then we follow Banma as he trains for a big pro match, where the "Prince of Fighters" looks to maintain his impressive five-fight winning streak.

    US intelligence agencies have confirmed that emails from the Democratic National Committee and from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta were stolen by Russian hackers.

    And now in the latest string of indictments and guilty pleas announced by the Justice Department, the evidence suggests at least one Trump adviser knew of the theft in advance, and lied about it.

    The revelations come from George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy advisor to the Trump campaign, who met with Russian sources who told him of Clinton's stolen emails, several months before they were released. His guilty plea upends our timeline of what the Trump campaign knew about the Russian hacks, and when they knew it.

    The Weird, Wild World of Skunk Owners For the past 16 years, North Ridgeville, Ohio, has hosted pet owners from across the country to celebrate what founder Deborah Cipriani claims is the largest skunk convention in the world. This year, VICE's Taji Ameen went to the annual Skunk Fest to check out its competitions and meet dozens of skunk enthusiasts and the descented animals they keep as pets.

    For this episode I found myself embeded with a small community in Japan. They were born there, they speak the language. But they're not Japanese citizens, or even ethnically Japanese - they're North Korean. There's about 150,000 of them living in Japan today, and they've been there for over a century.

    This community has close ties with the regime in Pyongyang, which supports them financially (and vice-versa). But more importantly, Pyongyang offers them an identity, a heritage, and cultural legitimacy - things that some elements of Japanese society work to deny them.

  • The dollhouses of death that changed forensic science
    The dollhouses of death that changed forensic science Frances Glessner Lee created dollhouses with dead dolls. In this episode of Vox Almanac, Vox's Phil Edwards explains why.

    Follow Phil Edwards on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/philedwardsinc1/

    Frances Glessner Lee's "Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death" are part of a new exhibit at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Art museum. The collection is part art, part science, and part creepy peek into the world of forensic science.

    These miniatures significantly advanced forensics and forensic science, but they aren't just CSI curios - they're complex, confounding works of art that manage to be morbid and beautiful at the same time.

    Lee's legacy bridges both the art world and the world of crime — and you'll get a chance to see exactly how her nutshell studies work. These aren't just dollhouses — they're entire worlds worth exploring.

    This Director Turned Years of AIDS Activism into a Feature Film As a gay man in 1990s France, Robin Campillo saw AIDS claim his friends' lives and spent years campaigning to raise awareness about the virus. Decades later, he decided to make a film about his activism, France's LGBTQ scene, and the house music that he says was "the background of the epidemic."

    VICE sat down with the director to talk about his new film, 'BPM,' and his history with ACT UP.

  • Why this awful sounding album is a masterpiece
    Why this awful sounding album is a masterpiece Brace yourselves, this video is about Trout Mask Replica by Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band.



    Trout Mask Replica, by Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band was inducted into the Library of Congress' national recording registry in 2010 - nearly 40 years after it's release. The album has been widely cited by artists of all kinds as a shining point of creativity and original thought - it also is very very hard to listen to. It's the musical equivalent of a Jackson Pollock painting. Its discordant rhythms and motifs sound made up on the spot by a child, but every sound and riff you hear on the album was arduously rehearsed over the course of a year by a group of young musicians who were remarkable in their own right. Samuel Andreyev and Susan Rogers join me on Episode #6 of Vox Pop's Earworm to breakdown why this album is such a masterpiece.

  • The opioid crisis is making grandparents become parents again
    The opioid crisis is making grandparents become parents again Grandparents are struggling to raise grandchildren on their own.

    ///

    The opioid crisis is driving up the population of "kinship caregivers" in record numbers. As overdose totals rise, grandparents and other relative caregivers are stepping in to raise the children of addicted parents. Unlike foster care, "kinship care" has unique requirements that are often not recognized in a child welfare system that was designed to support non-relative foster parents. As grandparents struggle to raise children on their own, they often don't realize that there are support options available until they are told by a kinship navigator or other social service coordinator. Kinship navigators fill the void created by the lack of a dedicated social services organization for kinship families. As navigators, they help inform and connect kinship caregivers to the patchwork of various programs, grants, and other services (legal, financial, health) that they are eligible to receive. Often, however, grandparents are unaware of their existence and seek other ways to support themselves -- sometimes by attending therapy groups with other relative caregivers that are raising children of the opioid epidemic. In New York State, a Relative As Parents Program support group gathers once a month to swap stories and share advice.

  • Inside One of the Most Radioactive Places on Earth: Russian Road Trip (Part 3/3)
    Inside One of the Most Radioactive Places on Earth: Russian Road Trip (Part 3/3) In the northeast region of Kazakhstan, near the Russian border, sits a stretch of land where the Soviet Union spent years testing the atomic bomb. During the Cold War, the government conducted more than 400 nuclear tests at a compound known as the "Polygon" in Semipalatinsk, a city 200,000 people called home.

    In this three-part documentary, VICE’s Abdullah Saeed, Danielle Neftin, and Dina Rayzman take a road trip through Russia and into Kazakhstan to visit the Polygon and meet the people who still live in Semipalatinsk, despite its nuclear contamination and health risks. Along the way, the trio drinks vodka with Russian separatists and samples antler blood, before zipping on their protective suits and heading directly into one of the most radioactive spots on Earth.

    The United Daughters of the Confederacy was a significant leader of the “Lost Cause,” an intellectual movement that revised history to look more favorably on the South after the American Civil War. They were women from elite antebellum families that used their social and political clout to fundraise and pressure local governments to erect monuments that memorialized Confederate heroes. They also formed textbook review committees that monitored what Southern schoolchildren learned about the war. Their influential work with children created a lasting memory of the Confederate cause, and those generations grew up to be the segregationists of the Jim Crow Era in the South.

    The ice in the Arctic is disappearing. Melting Arctic ice means new economic opportunities: trade routes in the Arctic ocean, and access to natural resources. Because of this, the Arctic nations are now moving to expand their border claims. Russia has shown that it’s the most ambitious, using a potent combination of soft power and military buildup to advance its agenda. They’ve said the Arctic is rightfully theirs.

This militia group, called the Georgia III% Security Force, is part of the Three Percenter movement, which is inspired by the unfounded claim that only three percent of colonists fought against the British in the American Revolution.

    Haiti and the Dominican Republic share a border, and an island. But the two countries are very different today: the Dominican Republic enjoys higher quality of life for many factors than Haiti. I went to this island and visited both countries, to try and understand when and how their paths diverged. And I began to learn how those differences are playing out in the present.

    Vox Borders is a new international documentary series presented by lululemon, by Emmy-nominated videojournalist Johnny Harris. For this series, Johnny is producing six 10-15 minute documentaries about different borders stories from around the world.

  • Why we really really really like repetition in music
    Why we really really really like repetition in music It slays all day



    In episode #5 of Vox Pop's Earworm, producer Estelle Caswell, comes to appreciate the art of repetition with the help of Colin Morris and Elizabeth Margulis. Colin is a computer scientist who created two really amazing ways to visualize repetition in song lyrics and how they've increased over the last 50 or so years. Elizabeth Margulis has dedicated her career to music research and runs the music cognition lab at the University of Arkansas. Her book "On Repeat: How music plays the mind" delves deep into the science behind musical repetition and explores the many ways our brains react to it.

  • How granite countertops took over American kitchens
    How granite countertops took over American kitchens Granite countertops are an American obsession. But how did they become so ubiquitous? Our nation's countertop history has had a few surprising twists and turns.

    This is the final episode in the first season of Overrated - you can learn more about it here:
    https://www.facebook.com/OverratedTheShow/

    Follow Phil Edwards on Facebook here:
    https://www.facebook.com/philedwardsinc1/

    You can read the Vox article here: https://www.vox.com/2015/9/4/9258233/granite-countertops

    Granite countertops are beautiful, but aren't they a little overrated? In the past, Americans loved their formica and laminate countertops, so what changed the kitchen landscape?

    It turns out that stone imports from countries like Brazil and Italy, improved means of importing and cutting granite, and a general decrease in cost made the once-elite material accessible to the HGTV-loving masses. The history of granite countertops isn't just about shiny counters, but about international trade, technology, and how trends trickle down from elites to the masses.

    Is granite here to stay? Who knows — quartz may prove to be formidable competition. But now at least you won't take it for granted (yes, we knowingly passed up the opportunity to write "take it for granite" — classy, right?).

  • Why Rotten Tomatoes scores don't mean what they seem
    Why Rotten Tomatoes scores don't mean what they seem It’s about consensus, not quality.

    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    EDIT: At 2:57, a previous version of this video mistakenly featured a clip from Atonement. The video has since been updated to feature a clip of Dunkirk.

    The Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer maintains high status in today’s Hollywood. A certified fresh badge can act like a marketing tool for a film. So filmmakers are sensitive to how their work fares on the platform. But the Tomatometer number you see measures something different than quality — it measures consensus.

    Earlier this summer, some executives criticized the platform, saying that critics tanked their summer hits. Films like Baywatch, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and The Mummy all performed below expectations at the box office. Hollywood needed a scapegoat. Because Fandango, one of the largest online ticket-distributors, features the tomatometer at the point-of purchase, Rotten Tomatoes seemed the perfect target for the ire of executives.

    But when you look closely at how Rotten Tomatoes works, it becomes clear that the service is mainly good at measuring critical consensus, not quality. That’s due to how the Tomatometer is calculated.

    To read more about how Rotten Tomatoes works, you can read this article from Alissa Wilkinson: https://www.vox.com/culture/2017/8/31/16107948/rotten-tomatoes-explainer-critics-movies-aggregation

    The gap between the rich and the poor in America looks more like developing countries than other Western nations. Trump and the GOP have proposed tax plans that will give massive tax breaks to the wealthy while it remains unclear if the middle class will get a tax benefit.

    Deductions give a greater proportion of tax breaks to people with higher incomes. The same charitable contribution from two different incomes will benefit the higher wage earner, because deductions give tax breaks in proportion with tax brackets. Other countries have eliminated certain tax deductions in favor of tax credits. Credits give breaks in proportion to the amount you give, not the amount you owe.

    There are two kinds of income in the US. We tax wage income at a higher rate than income earned in stocks and bonds. That means people who get their income from capital gains and stock market interest pay fewer taxes than the same income of someone who works for a paycheck.

    We sat down with Christine Cornell, a courtroom sketch artist who has been covering trials for over 40 years to talk about why even in an age where everybody's cellphones have cameras on them, we still often need artists to portray what happens in courtrooms.

    She has covered the trials of Bill Cosby, Donald Trump, Martha Stewart, and Martin Shkreli, as well as people like the Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and El Chapo. She explains what it takes to be a courtroom sketch artist and how she think that compassion is one of the key traits artists must possess.

    She also gives a demonstration of her technique by drawing a portrait of Dean.

  • The gun modification that made the Las Vegas shooting so deadly
    The gun modification that made the Las Vegas shooting so deadly Bump stocks make semi-automatic guns behave like fully automatics.

    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    When a gunman opened fire on a crowd at a Jason Aldean concert in Las Vegas earlier this week, he was using a legal firearm. In the United States, semi-automatic weapons are available to the general public. Fully automatic guns are not. But there is a loophole. Gun owners can purchase a 'bump-stock' modification that takes advantage of recoil mechanics to make a semi-automatic rifle far more dangerous. And that opens up a grey area in gun control policy.

    Prior to 2006, Puerto Rico's economy was held together by United States business interests. But when that tax break expired, the island's economic recession became a depression. Because Puerto Ricans are US citizens, they are allowed to travel freely between the territory and the mainland. Because of the high cost of living on the island and opportunity for higher pay on the mainland, many leave.

    Mismanagement of public utilities combined with a dwindling tax base has left the island with dated infrastructure, and concerning prospects for post-hurricane recovery.

    Many thanks to Yancey Strickler, Elan Lee, and TED for this interview we recorded at TED 2017.

    Exploding kittens started of as a card game of Russian roulette with a hint of Old Maid between a group of friends. It turned into a national phenomena with the help of a crowd—a crowd that was built from folks on Kickstarter. But with incredible rewards of crowdfunding, there can be costly risks as well to putting out valuable ideas of products to the world before they actually get made.

    How Hans Zimmer and Radiohead transformed "Bloom" for Blue Planet II Radiohead's "Bloom," remixed for the ocean.


    Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

    If you listen closely enough to Radiohead and Hans Zimmer’s rework of “Bloom” for Blue Planet II, you can hear a really fascinating orchestral trick at work. They call it the “tidal orchestra” — it’s a musical effect created by instructing each player to play their notes only if the person next to them isn’t playing. The result is a randomly swelling and fading musical bed for the entire series that captures the feeling of ocean waves. It’s a captivating way to score a soundtrack for the ocean — but it also fits in with a long history of capturing randomness in music composition.

    If you've ever been curious about typewriter history, the rise of QWERTY wasn't an accident. Typing and typewriters weren't always around, and the inventor of the QWERTY typewriter layout didn't know it would become the standard.

    Over time, however, business reasons and typing education made QWERTY a standard across the industry and, eventually, for the vast majority of typists. Though there are exceptions to QWERTY's domination, for the most part, this keyboard layout remains the default even today.

    High-speed internet service is lacking in much of rural America. The causes are complicated, but non-competitive cable markets, misguided government funding, and infrastructural obstacles have limited expansion up until now. Despite the troubles, some rural Americans are receiving internet via both wireless and wireline systems, but the internet service many receive falls short of the 25mbps up/3mbps down set by the Federal Communications Commission in 2015 during the Obama Administration. Receiving that level of service typically requires a wireline connection provided by fiber optic cable, which many rural residents don't have because the remote territories that would be served are hard to reach and require massive investments that private cable companies like Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast aren't willing to make. If service is available, it is often much more expensive than similar service in urban markets. An idea for solving the problem might be to adopt the funding model similar to the one that helped expand rural electrification during the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. At that time, the government paid local electric cooperatives willing to do the work to provide electricity in their communities. Unlike electrification, there are many models for broadband deployment, including cooperatives, but also municipal broadband, private companies and other public-private partnerships. If Trump's government plans to spend more money on rural broadband, then following the model of electrification might help correct some of the funding troubles that have plagued broadband expansion up to this point.

  • Life After Steel in the UK's Most Polluted Town: Rule Britannia
    Life After Steel in the UK's Most Polluted Town: Rule Britannia In March 2016 the steelworks in Port Talbot, South Wales, were threatened with closure. 700 people were made immediately redundant and reports suggested another 15,000 jobs, in a town of just 45,000, could be affected. Port Talbot was set to become a ghost town.

    In the midst of the uncertainty and limbo, a father of four Nigel Hunt – who had already lost his steelworker job of 10 years – begins building a new future with a colourful start-up business, in the most polluted city in the UK. With no investment, or disposable income, the stakes are high but some unexpected turns lead Nigel to a new path, away from the fire and furnace, which he never could have dreamed of.
