  • Inside The Growing Men’s Rights Movement in India
    Inside The Growing Men’s Rights Movement in India In the early 2000s, India started a push towards gender equality with new laws aimed at protecting women from assault and marital disputes. But as protections for women grow stronger, some men in the country have started to mobilize, convinced women make false accusations and use the laws against their husbands as retribution. Now India is home to a thriving men's rights movement that's become its own legitimate political platform, arguing that men's rights, not women's, need protection in the country.

    We met up with the founder of India’s leading men’s rights organization, the Save Indian Family Foundation (SIFF), to find out what the group is fighting for, and talked to a man who recently joined its ranks. Then we talked with Karuna Nundy, a lawyer who’s been a leading champion of women’s rights in India, to hear her take on the movement.

    Even though Britain gave Hong Kong back to China 21 years ago, today when you walk around the city you can see British fingerprints everywhere. From statues of Queen Victoria to double decker buses, British culture and lifestyle is baked into the culture at every turn.

    Both the history and the current-day British influence are visually fascinating stories and in this episode I show it all -- exploring Britain’s imperial history, which includes opioid trade, discrimination and a divided city, and then showing the effects of that history, resulting in a city that is unlike any I’ve visited.

    We don't know everything about the Trump campaign's relationship with Russia. Nevertheless, what the public does know — especially following this summit — is pretty damning.

    We know that Russia and the Trump campaign whether publicly or privately explicitly or implicitly coordinated together and that Russia interfered in the election on Donald Trump's behalf.

    Ezra Klein breaks down why Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin is a remarkable, if not surreal, moment in American politics.

    Hobos, or tramps, were itinerant workers and wanderers who, beginning in the late 19th century, illegally hopped freight cars on the then-expanding railroad in the United States. They used graffiti, or tramp writing, as a messaging system to tell their fellow travelers where they were and where they were headed next. Hobos would scratch or draw their road persona, or moniker, onto stationary objects near railroad tracks like water towers and bridges. News stories at the time, largely informed by hobos themselves, spread tales of a different kind of graffiti though. One that included coded symbols that supposedly drawn on fence posts and houses to convey simple messages to tramps about if that home or town. While this language probably existed on some level, it certainly was not as widespread as media of the time would have readers believe, and hobos as a source would have no reason to be fully truthful about the use of the symbols. Freight graffiti and monikers eventually expanded to include rail workers, who would draw their monikers on the boxcars coming through train yards.

    We produce 13 tons of hazardous waste every second [Advertiser content from MailChimp] Most homes across America have a stash of chemical cleaners under the sink that becomes hazardous waste as soon as you’re done using them. And some of the household products don’t even make it out of the store, as retailers often get rid of sticky, dented, and forgotten bottles. Those become hazardous waste too.

    There are 400 million tons of hazardous waste produced across the globe each year. That’s like one garbage truck filled to the brim, every second of every day.

    Thankfully, companies like Smarter Sorting have turned to recycling products instead of incinerating them, so they move cradle-to-cradle rather than cradle-to-grave.

    How your split ends can help clean oil spills Hair isn’t just for top knots; it can protect the ocean too.

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

    While oil spills have declined over the years, they still happen, and when they do, it can be devastating to the environment. One natural way to help contain oil spills is through the use of hair booms and hair mats. Hair is a naturally hydrophobic and biosorbent, which means, it repels water and can collect heavy metals and other contaminants, like oil.

    The more popular methods to contain oil spills use synthetic materials and chemicals, which can be costly and just as dangerous to environment. So, it’s worth exploring eco-friendly ways to clean up the ocean and other waterways.

    You can learn more about how hair-booms and hair mats can be used during oil spills on Matter of Trust’s website: https://matteroftrust.org/297/clean-wave-program

  • Being a Black Bull Rider in a Majority White Sport
    Being a Black Bull Rider in a Majority White Sport In the heyday of America's Old West, roughly a fourth of the cowboys were black. But today, the world of professional bull riding, a sport rooted in ranching culture, is predominantly white.

    On this episode of 'MINORITY REPORTS,' VICE sent Lee Adams to Texas to meet Neil Holmes and Ezekiel Mitchell—two black bull riders at different points in their careers—to find out what it’s like as a person of color trying to make it in the predominantly white world of professional bull riding. Holmes—an accomplished pro on the eve of his retirement—explains how he got into bull riding, and talks about leaving the sport as the only black pro ranked in the top 100 bull riders. Desperately trying to fill Holmes's shoes is Mitchell, who's struggled with the funds to travel, and has experienced racism in the sport first-hand.

    We look into why one of the most popular sports in America has so few professional black athletes at its highest levels, and explore some of the barriers to entry that have made black representation difficult in the sport.

  • Why seeking asylum in America is so difficult
    Why seeking asylum in America is so difficult Asylum have pushed the system to a tipping point.

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

    Asylum is one way that refugees come to America. If you’ve already fled your home country for fear of persecution, and come to the United States, but don’t have refugee status, applying for asylum is the next step you take. It’s a small subset of the American immigration system, but it’s the mechanism behind so much of the news about border.

    Families recently separated from their children at the border came seeking asylum. People fleeing from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador — an area known as the Northern Triangle — come to the United States seeking asylum. To even get a hearing before an immigration judge, potential asylum-seekers have to prove that they have what’s called “credible fear” of returning home. And this is where that backlog really begins.

    How to Get High AF in Alaska On VICE’s weed travel show ‘BLUNT REVIEWS,’ we trek to places where weed is legal to review things a cannabis-consuming tourist can do while they’re stoned.

    On this episode, VICE's Trey Smith visited Alaska, where he stayed at Cecelia's B&B, a weed-friendly bed and breakfast in Anchorage, and sampled a THC-infused buffet with folks from the local weed industry. Then he stopped by The High Expedition in Talkeetna, a dispensary that doubles as a museum to famous mountain climber Ray Genet, sampling their product before taking a bush plane to check out the surrounding mountain scenery.

  • CONIFA: The Other World Cup
    CONIFA: The Other World Cup Yes, the FIFA World Cup is good: Messi, Neymar, lads in the crowd wearing facepaint and crying. But it’s also really hard to get to, tickets are expensive, and the chances of getting thrown in a canal by an elite-trained hooligan are way higher than they are in real life.

    So we found an alternative: the CONIFA World Football Cup, a grassroots, non-profit, international football tournament for countries, de facto nations, regions and minority peoples. On seven non-league grounds across London over ten days, sixteen teams including Tuvalu, Matabeleland, Tibet and Barawa compete for a rare chance at glory.

    With 47 members around the world representing over 334 million people, CONIFA celebrates the teams who can’t or don’t qualify for FIFA membership, and gives under-recognised countries a unique opportunity to take part in a World Cup.

    In the tournament, every team has a story, every nation or region has a reason to be there, and every one of them has felt ignored or under-represented before. For many of them, CONIFA gives fans the first chance to ever see their team play – to sing their anthem and wave their flag and cheer for their own identity.

  • Why the US national anthem is terrible — and perfect
    Why the US national anthem is terrible — and perfect Vox's Estelle Caswell and Joss Fong debate "The Star Spangled Banner"

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

    When Francis Scott Key attached his poem about the War of 1812 to a popular British song called "To Anacreon in Heaven," he kicked off over 200 years of painfully bad singing by patriotic Americans. The Star Spangled Banner became the official national anthem of the United States in 1931, but it had been used by the Army and Navy for decades before that and was popular from the start. One big problem? The melody wasn't exactly written for the masses, but for trained soloists.

    Commentators pointed out early on that it was exceedingly difficult for most people to sing, suggesting that "America the Beautiful" might be a better alternative. Critics have noted that the music requires a uniquely wide vocal range, it's full of tricky intervals, and the lyrics are confusing and uninspiring.

    But if you look at the national anthem as a sport, where we get to watch performers at the top of their game tackle the gauntlet that is the Star Spangled Banner, you may come to appreciate it. In this video, we debate whether the difficulty of the Star Spangled Banner is a feature or a bug for a national anthem.

    Can Trump really pardon himself? We asked legal experts about the limits of a president’s pardoning power.

    Take a look at the US Constitution and you’ll find that the president has fairly broad power to pardon individuals accused, charged or convicted of crimes against the federal government.

    President Trump’s use of pardons early in his presidency, some believe, sends signals to his allies that Trump is willing to pardon them if they’re convicted of a crime in one of the several investigations surrounding the 2016 elections. The president has also repeatedly claimed that he could even pardon himself.

    So what are the checks to a US president’s pardoning power and what does the Constitution have to say about this sort of self-serving pardoning?

    It's not you. Date labels on food make no sense. Food labels don’t mean what you think they mean.

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

    When people clean out their fridge, they look at whatever date is on the label and throw it in the trash if it’s past that date. But the chances are that you’re throwing out tons of perfectly good food because date labels on food are often really confusing.

    Food labels can mean many different things and often don’t give you any indication of whether the food is safe to eat or not. Many people assume that they’re federally regulated, but baby formula is the only product required to have consistent date labels. For everything else it’s up to the states to decide.

    This creates a confusing state-by-state patchwork of labels with everything from “use by” to “freshest before” to “sell by” to “packaged on.”

    And all this confusion causes us to waste tons of food every year. All the uneaten food waste costs Americans over $200 billion each year, and two thirds of that comes from households.

    If we came up with a unified, easy to understand date label system we could save money, food, and help the environment, all just by changing how we put date labels on the things we eat.

  • Why Americans suck at soccer (well, the men)
    Why Americans suck at soccer (well, the men) We’ve got a theory, and it involves the soccer wars.

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

    In this episode of Vox Almanac, Vox’s Phil Edwards puts forth a theory about terrible American men’s soccer.

    There are a lot of reasons Americans suck at soccer - but if you look at the history, you’ll find a surprisingly compelling explanation for why American soccer never took off. In the 1920s, soccer was a surprisingly successful sport in the US, with massive matches and a robust league. What went wrong?

    American soccer and English football first diverged in the 1800s, when American colleges like Harvard and Yale started playing a more rugby-like game. But America quickly caught up with soccer in the 1920s, attracting large crowds and even stealing away European players.

    Then the soccer wars happened. Constant battles in the 1920s between the ASL - American Soccer League - and USFA — United States Football Association — carved up American soccer’s cash, fans, and talent. By the time the depression hit, American soccer was so weakened that it couldn’t rebound as well as European and South American soccer culture did. The subsequent half-century of sports build up gave Americans a permanent handicap when it came to building a robust soccer culture.

    It’s a theory — but the success of the US Women’s National Team bears out the idea that something is specifically wrong for the men. And it just might be the case that 1920s soccer wars are the reason.

    Being a White Student at a Historically Black College America’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) were founded as safe spaces for black students long excluded from white institutions, and for years, you couldn’t find a single white kid on their campuses. But as HBCUs face increasingly tough times financially, some are beginning to recruit “non-traditional,” non-black students.

    On this episode of ‘MINORITY REPORTS,’ we met up with Tiago, a white freshman at Morehouse College, an HBCU in Atlanta that counts Martin Luther King, Jr. and Spike Lee as alumni.

    We sat down with him to hear why he decided to enroll in the school, asked his peers for their thoughts on having white students on campus, and followed along as he showed us what it’s like to be one of very few non-black students at school.

  • How Islamist militant groups are gaining strength in Africa
    How Islamist militant groups are gaining strength in Africa Terrorist groups are destabilizing countries all over the continent.

    Islamist terrorist groups have found a new home and it's not in the Middle East -- it's in Africa. Specifically, the Sahel, a band of territory in West Africa between the Sahara desert and the savannah.

    Since the early 2000s, Islamist extremist groups have increasingly strengthened their base here -- training fighters, raising money, and launching a massive number of attacks.

    Some are linked to al-Qaeda and other Islamic State. This is throwing these already weak countries into crises and making the region one of the most dangerous in the world.

  • The voices of children separated at the border
    The voices of children separated at the border Over 2,300 children have been separated from their families.

    Read ProPublica reporter Ginger Thompson’s article here: https://www.propublica.org/article/children-separated-from-parents-border-patrol-cbp-trump-immigration-policy

    And listen to the full audio clip at ProPublica’s YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoncXfYBAVI&t=70s

    In April 2018, the Trump administration and Attorney General Jeff Sessions instituted a “zero tolerance” policy on undocumented immigration. Undocumented migrants and asylum seekers detained at the border now face immediate criminal prosecution, often before their asylum claims can even be processed. Thousands of children and other migrants are now being held in detention centers operated by US Customs and Border Protection, where they await trial.

    A backlash against this policy is growing, with conservatives and liberals alike decrying it as cruel and inhumane. Both the White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Sessions have explicitly cited the policy as a preemptive deterrent to undocumented migration, though the administration has since backtracked on that message.

    We want to help shed light on this. Has your family been separated at the US–Mexico border? Are you a worker at a detention center, or do you aid families who have been affected? Tell us more at border@propublica.org or 347-244-2134.

    When you think of a soccer ball, you probably imagine a classic black-and-white paneled ball. It’s known as the Telstar ball, and it was created thanks to TV.

    The 1966 World Cup in England was broadcast live across the globe and it was at this point that television became a huge part of the sport. Thanks to the BBC, it was seen by four hundred million people. But spotting the ball was a bit challenging.

    Back then, soccer balls looked more like reddish-brown volleyballs. And on black-and-white TVs, it didn’t really stand out from the green field.

    By the 1970 World Cup, the soccer ball had changed to that classic Telstar. The contrasting panels made it stand out on TV. Plus, the players loved it because the 32 panels brought the ball closer to an actual sphere.

    This year’s World Cup ball is called the Telstar 18, a nod to the original design. While the panels have changed to just six propeller-shaped pieces to make the ball even more spherical, the black-and-white checkered design is back.

In a country employing thousands of people in its multi-million dollar cam industry, Bucharest is at the heart of the action, home to professional studios dedicated to camming and countless women who can make a killing live-streaming online.

    VICE went to Bucharest to meet a handful of professional cam girls to hear why they got involved in camming, how lucrative the profession can be for women in the country, and what stigmas still exist in Romania surrounding their work. Then we toured one of the world’s top camming studios for a look at how it manages its high-profile clients.

    And while handshakes were exchanged and agreements were signed after unprecedented talks in Singapore, no country with a nuclear program as advanced as North Korea's has ever denuclearized.

  • Inside Veteran TV's Dark and Controversial Humor
    Inside Veteran TV's Dark and Controversial Humor Welcome to Vet.TV: a comedy website started by an ex-Marine named Donny O’Malley who believes his brand of dark and twisted humor is the thing that some post-9/11 military veterans have been dying to see. Completely unapologetic and at times controversial, Vet.TV doesn’t shy away from much of anything.

    But, according to Donny, the content is specifically made for front line infantry men to help them laugh about hard times. So, if you’re a civilian or even a fellow veteran, Vet.TV will most likely call into question what you personally consider comedy versus what inexcusably crosses the line.

    VICE’s Erica Matson went to visit the set of Vet.TV and talk to Donny about his latest show.

    President Trump calls it calls it “spygate:” the allegation that the FBI and democrats put a spy in his campaign to help Hillary Clinton. It’s not true.

    Top republicans like Speaker Paul Ryan have even disputed the president. But even though it’s a conspiracy theory, millions of Americans will still believe it. It’s a playbook he has used before.

    “Spygate” is an attempt to delegitimize the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. If the American people lose trust in them, they won’t believe whatever the investigation finds. It’s working.

    Ever notice the first step for baking a cookie is almost always to preheat the oven to 350 degrees?

    Even when you’re baking something else, an oven with a digital temperature reader typically defaults to 350. What’s so magical about this number and why is it that so many recipes call for it?

    I spoke with longtime pastry chef and Institute of Culinary Education creative director Michael Laiskonis and found that – as with most “magical” things – it’s actually science.

In 2016 alone, losses topped $24 billion worldwide, half of which affected cardholders in the US. With a virtually unlimited amount of money to be made scamming, some tech-savvy criminals have turned ripping off credit card numbers into a full-time gig.

He walked us through the process, showing us how he buys stolen accounts on the dark web, prints pilfered numbers on blank cards, and buys thousands of dollars worth of goods with stolen money. He also explained why he got into the game in the first place—and what it would take for him to get out.

    Tariffs can be used as a useful tool to protect domestic industry or to serve as a punitive measure against another country. But President Trump’s bluster and threats of imposing tariffs on foreign imports to the US have raised the specter of a trade war with China, and more recently, Mexico.

    The “weapons” used in a trade war are the stuff we use everyday — the food we eat, the cars we drive to work and the computers we use. If a trade war can have such a pervasive impact on our daily lives, why would a country choose to engage in one? And what even is a trade war anyway?

    In this episode of Vox Almanac, Phil Edwards explores the surprising history behind sitcom lighting.

    Karl Freund was the genius cinematographer behind Metropolis, the silent film classic. But then he designed the set for I Love Lucy - the first of the multicam, laugh-track heavy sitcoms. Today, they look bland, but it wasn’t always that way. But at the time, Freund had a good reason to tackle the challenge.

    These lighting techniques are still in use today on sitcoms like Friends, the Big Bang Theory, and other multi-camera hits. What looks generic to our eyes was, at one time, the result of an artist who made the impossible look easy.

    How noise pollution is ruining your hearing Our ears are exposed to dangerous levels of noise every single day.

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

    Health organizations warn that continual exposure to noise levels above 70 decibels can potentially damage your ears. And yet we are routinely exposed to noise much louder than that in everyday situations.

    Our world is increasingly noisy and our bars, restaurants, gyms, and streets all produce decibel levels that can cause harm to our hearing in mere minutes.

    Hearing loss is incredibly common and is the fourth highest disability worldwide. One in four American adults shows signs of noise-induced hearing loss, and the problem is only going to get worse.

    While hearing damage is irreversible, it's also completely preventable. Watch for tips on how to protect your ears even in incredibly loud environments.

    Why chronic floods are coming to New Jersey Railroads aren’t great if they’re underwater.

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

    Scientists have directly observed sea level rise since the late 18th century. And as they forecast the next 20, 50, and 100 years, sea level rise will continue to accelerate at an alarming rate. That rise won’t just threaten homeowners on the coast -- it will also impact the critical infrastructure that supports many of our largest cities.

    While sea level rise is often phrased as an issue of concern in the future, we can already see some of the implications. Many coastal communities have witnessed a sharp uptick in flooding, during lunar king tide periods. Other places are forced to consider what life might be like as the land they currently occupy goes underwater.

    Drinking Tequlia at a Paint and Sip Class with Johnny Knoxville and Chris Pontius In Johnny Knoxville’s latest film, ‘Action Point,’ he plays D.C., the owner of a failing, ramshackle amusement park where the rides aren’t exactly up to code. When a new theme park opens next door, threatening to shut Action Point down, D.C. and his buddies fight to save it by ramping things up at the park—as he puts it, “no rules, no speed limits—just pure fun.”

    A ‘Jackass’-inspired gauntlet of stunts ensues, seeing Knoxville flung off a catapult and sprayed with a fire hose as he tests out the park’s new rides. We met up with Knoxville and his co-star Chris Pontius at LA’s Paint and Sip Studios to talk about the movie and hear how they shot some of the most difficult scenes.

  • Scientists are remaking mosquitoes to fight malaria
    Scientists are remaking mosquitoes to fight malaria The ambitious plan to use genetic engineering to save millions of children.

    The invention of the CRISPR gene editing tool has injected new life into a line of research called gene drive. Gene drives use selfish genetic elements to spread a modification through a wild population.

    Researchers have proposed using gene drives against agricultural pests and invasive species, but the most urgent application is against vector-borne diseases like malaria, which kills hundreds of thousands of people every year, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa.

    We talked to the scientists working on this revolutionary approach to disease eradication to find out how it works and how long it might take to deploy a technology like a gene drive against malaria.

  • The culture war between doctors and midwives, explained
    The culture war between doctors and midwives, explained A deeper look at history explains why when it comes to midwife use, the US falls behind other affluent countries.

    And catch their latest in maternal mortality reporting here: https://www.propublica.org/series/lost-mothers

    Despite spending more per capita on health care than any other country, the U.S. has the highest rate of deaths related to pregnancy and childbirth in the industrialized world. But what makes maternal healthcare in other affluent countries look so different than the U.S.? Among other things, midwives. Midwives in the U.S. participate in less than 10 percent of births. But in Sweden, Denmark and France, they lead around three quarters of deliveries. In Great Britain, they deliver half of all babies, including all three of Kate Middleton’s. So if the midwifery model works for royal babies, why not our own? Check out the video above to find out how midwives have been at the center of a culture war that’s deeply rooted in race and class in America.

  • Out of Control: Ukraine's Rogue Militias
    Out of Control: Ukraine's Rogue Militias In 2014, Ukraine was under siege and the military was unprepared. Desperate, the government urged anyone to get to the front and fight the Russian-backed separatists. As the war drags on, Ukraine claims their military is now in control and the volunteers have all been disbanded. But we tracked down some rogue volunteers still out there fighting, not prepared to hand over their weapons anytime soon.

    The Craziest Hippie Festival in the Jungle Not satisfied with the traditional festival mission of getting off your nut, there is a new wave of event which claims to transform your body and soul.

    VICE's Amelia Dimoldenberg is invited deep into the jungles of Costa Rica to attend Envision Festival, on a quest to rid herself of her chronic awkwardness and open her third eye through bitcoin conferences, Buddhist drum circles and vaginal eggs.

  • Why people are buying cartoon cats on the blockchain
    Why people are buying cartoon cats on the blockchain Forget cryptocurrencies. These are cryptocollectibles.

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

    Every time you send something on the internet, it’s a copy. But using new technology, can we make digital goods that are... rare?

    That’s the question behind CryptoKitties, a new game to buy, breed, and sell digital cats on the blockchain. These cats are more similar to real-world collectibles like beanie babies or baseball cards than they are to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum.

    In just the last few months, a whole community of third party sites and services has formed around CryptoKitties. And fans have spent more than $23 million playing along.

    All of this is made possible by the clever and surprising code behind the game.

  • The Story of the Biggest Sports Stadium Hit: "Kernkraft 400" by Zombie Nation
    The Story of the Biggest Sports Stadium Hit: "Kernkraft 400" by Zombie Nation Zombie Nation’s “Kernkraft 400” is one of the biggest dance music songs of all time, a mainstay at clubs and stadiums across the globe. But the version you know—with a driving, four-to-the-floor beat and a chanting crowd in the background—wasn’t even made by the DJ who wrote it.

    Through a series of miscommunications, remixes, and bad deals, the original “Kernkraft 400” morphed into something DJ/Producer Florian Senfter couldn’t stand. But the bastardization made him famous, sending him on tours around the world, and giving his song an audience of millions who would recognize the melody anywhere.

    VICE met up with Senfter to hear the story of how a fluke remix to his song wound up reaching the top of the charts—whether he liked it or not.

  • Monogamy, explained
    Monogamy, explained Here it is! Episode 1 of our new show on Netflix: Explained. There's two more at http://www.netflix.com/explained right now & new episodes every Wednesday.

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

    In 2016, more than 2.2 million couples got married in America, but more than 800,000 got divorced. Cheating and breakups cause grief and heartache every day. Yet some historians and evolutionary biologists say monogamy is a relatively new, self-imposed system. Their evidence suggests humans lived without it for more than 250,000 years. And we only started marrying for love in the 1700s.

    So if monogamy is so hard, why do most of us, all around the world, make it a central goal of our lives?

    Vox tackled this question in the first episode of our new show with Netflix, Explained, which premieres today! We’ll have new episodes every Wednesday, on topics ranging from monogamy to gene editing to the racial wealth gap to K-pop and more. If you like our videos, then you’ll love this show; it’s our most ambitious video project to date.

    To watch, search “Explained” on Netflix or go to Netflix.com/explained. Click the “My List” button to make sure you don’t miss an episode!
