The Battle Raging In Nigeria Over Control Of Oil | VICE on HBO, Full Episode
 
14:38
Nigeria may sit atop one of the largest oil reserves in the world, but the majority of the Nigerian people have seen little benefit from the multibillion-dollar industry. The government and global energy companies have been exploiting the resource for years, bringing poverty, pollution, and violence to the Niger Delta. And now the local militias fighting for oil control have made conditions even worse. Caught in the conflict are Nigerian citizens involved in the illegal oil market simply for survival. Oil theft is rampant, and the booming black market has transnational oil and gas consultants concerned about the effects on global oil markets. The government isn't too happy about it either. “All the oil that is sold around here, the government calls illegally refined products,” local oil businessman Don Wizaro told VICE News. And when the Nigerian military raids illegal oil operations, they slash containers, releasing oil into waterways, contaminating what the main source of fishing, agriculture, and drinking water. As the government continues its assault on illegal refineries and barges carrying stolen oil, local militias are retaliating. And one of the most notorious militias is the Niger Delta Avengers. They attack pipelines and infrastructure, significantly affecting both the environment and the economy. VICE correspondent Gianna Toboni heads to the heart of Nigeria's oil production to witness firsthand the fight over the control of oil in the Niger Delta.

Hunting For A Rare Congolese Weed Strain With “The Kings of Cannabis”: VICE on HBO, Full Episode
 
15:31
Over the past 20 years, Franco Loja and Arjan Roskam, known as the "Kings of Cannabis," have made millions of dollars scouring the world for unique strains of weed to breed and then sell. Now, they've turned their sights on Equatorial Africa, specifically the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as their next gold mine — and a way to revolutionize the cannabis industry. "Equatorial Africa is one the best preserved because of the wars, the lack of infrastructure, political unrest. All these situations created isolation there," Loja explained. "So that's where we're going." Loja and Roskam built their global powerhouse on inbred strains of cannabis called "landraces" that they've collected from all over the world — Argentina, Australia, and Brazil, just to name a few spots. Without these strains, the duo's various breeding enterprises, Amsterdam coffeeshops, and even distribution centers wouldn't exist. VICE News met up with the “Kings of Cannabis” for a trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to hunt for one of the rarest species of Cannabis yet, the original Congolese landrace.

The Black Market For Pot Is Still Thriving In California (HBO)
 
05:33
Recreational marijuana became legal in California in January. But for small-scale veteran growers like Jason Fleming, licensing backlog may shut his business down before he sells a single nug on California’s new legal market. The state already had a 22 year old medical marijuana industry that outlined a legal route for patients to purchase pot from licensed dispensaries, but left the path for the weed to the shops in what can only be described as a very, very, gray area. The Medical and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act changed all of that — now all growers have to be licensed, and their wares need to be tested in a lab. “We want to make sure that people are getting safe cannabis, that when they come to a licensed retail store. they know it’s safe to consume,” says Lori Ajax, Chief of the Bureau of Cannabis Control, which regulates distributors. Growers and consumers also pay new state and local taxes that can get as high as 45%. Despite the significantly higher overhead, Fleming is determined to make it in the new, legal marketplace. He’s complied with licensing law by purchasing a growhouse for $25,000 a month, and filled out all of his paperwork. But Sonoma County has kept him waiting for local approval for six months. Without that, he cannot begin growing, so there’s no money to be made. “If this keeps continuing then we're going to have to operate this place as a black market grow to continue to pay for the legal grow,” Fleming told VICE News. Richard Parrott is the Chief of CalCannabis, the state agency that licenses medical and recreational cultivators, is familiar with stories like Jason’s. He told VICE News that he had heard of backlogs of applications with local authorities, but there wasn’t much he could do about it. “The state doesn't have any purview over the locals,” he said. To stay afloat, Jason can use his growhouses that are already up and running to sell to medical dispensaries. He can also sell some of his product at seshes, a type of underground marketplace that operates in the last remaining gray areas of the state’s medical marijuana laws. But the costs of getting his business off the ground demand more than a flimsy financial life vest. As time passes, an emerging black market fueled by consumers who can’t bear the brunt of the new taxes has come knocking.

This Is What ISIS Leaves Behind In Iraq: VICE on HBO, Full Segment
 
10:07
As a major stronghold of ISIS in its brutal sweep across Iraq, the city of Mosul has been central in the war to defeat the terror group. Iraqi forces began their campaign to crush ISIS in October 2016 just outside of Erbil, with a coalition of Kurdish peshmerga forces, and Western advisory allies. It was a long and arduous process of slowly advancing first from town to town along the Nineveh plains toward the city and then from block to block as they worked to liberate sectors of the city. VICE’s Aris Roussinos embedded with Iraqi forces as they began the campaign to retake Mosul.

We Follow A New Generation Of Soldiers Headed To Afghanistan (HBO)
 
07:30
Yesterday afternoon, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson went to Capitol Hill to ask for an extension of the Authorization for Use of Military Force, the law that allows the U.S. to continue to wage wars against those responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Meanwhile, more than 4,000 US troops will be deploying to Afghanistan this Fall, as the conflict enters its 17th year. The US already has around 8,500 troops on the ground in the region, but this new effort is a bid to boost a combat force tasked with destroying the Taliban. And so, 16 years after the beginning of the Afghan conflict, VICE News joined the 3rd Infantry Division of Fort Stewart, Georgia, as a new generation of soldiers marches off to war.

We Joined The Marines Trying To Defeat The Strongest Taliban Army Yet (HBO)
 
11:12
President Trump's new Afghanistan strategy will see up to 4,000 additional troops deployed to fight the deadliest Taliban army to date in the now 16-year-old conflict. But very few of them will see ground combat. That's because the war is being fought mainly by Afghan soldiers on the ground, supported by U.S. airpower in the form of drones or F-16s. VICE NEWS spent time with U.S. and Afghan forces as they try to beat back a Taliban resurgence that's seen the group now control or contest more territory in Afghanistan than at any time since the beginning of the war. We accompanied an Afghan-led counter-insurgency operation deep into Helmand province, where local forces fight day and night to push the Taliban back using heavy artillery and mine-clearance teams that dig out IEDs with their bare hands. As top U.S. officials laud recent results on the battlefield, Afghan soldiers say the Taliban they’re fighting is stronger now than they’ve been in years.

This Syrian Refugee Has Been Stuck In An Airport Transit Zone For More Than A Month (HBO)
 
05:20
For anyone who has complained about being delayed in an airport, spare a thought for Hassan Al Kontar. The Syrian refugee has been stuck in the transit zone of Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia since early March. Al Kontar's chronicled his story on social media, highlighting similarities to the Tom Hanks film The Terminal. The 36-year-old left Syria for the UAE well before the war started, but when it came time to renew his Syrian passport in 2012 the regime refused, because he hadn't completed his military service. He was eventually kicked out of the UAE in 2017 and went to Malaysia, but broke his 90 day visitor visa. Attempts to travel to Ecuador and Cambodia failed too, and Malaysia doesn't want him back in. He took VICE News on a guided tour of his new home in the arrivals area, where he sleeps under stairs, and dines on donated airline food. Malaysia's government has signaled it might let Al Kontar back in on a special visa for Syrian refugees, but he wants full rights to work, fearing he'll be stuck in a cycle of statelessness like so many other Syrians displaced by the war.

Filthy Frank is the embodiment of everything a person should not be. That’s not an evaluation or an opinion. It’s the first sentence of the “about” section of his YouTube channel. That said, though, it’s pretty accurate. Frank’s videos feature him “cooking” himself in a tub full of ramen, eating a cake made out of hair, and jumping onto strangers’ sandwiches in a park. And after a few years of being an internet anti-icon, he wants to leave the filth behind and become a musician, under his real name, Joji. Some of his fans aren’t too happy about this. VICE News hung out with him for a day to see if he’ll be able to make the transition from video troll to true artist. This segment originally aired on November 3, 2017, on VICE News Tonight on HBO.

ISIS’s Ghostly Presence Can Still Be Felt In Mosul (HBO)
 
06:22
Iraq’s incumbent Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi was hoping the country’s recent defeat of ISIS would be enough to secure his grip on power for another term. But frustration over Iran’s increasing influence in the country — and accusations of widespread political corruption — ultimately sunk his reelection bid. He was unseated by a coalition led by Muqtada al-Sadr, an anti-American Shia cleric who once oversaw uprisings against U.S. troops. Al-Sadr’s coalition ran on a fiercely nationalist campaign that promised to crack down on corruption and disentangle Iraq from decades of foreign influence, specifically from the U.S. and Iran. But al-Sadr's newly empowered coalition will face the same pressing test that plagued his predecessor: securing and stabilizing the country months after ISIS’s defeat. The diminished terror group isn’t going to make it easy. ISIS continues to threaten civilians, most recently releasing an audio message, declaring all who voted to be infidels and promising to carry out attacks on polling day. VICE News visited the eastern half of Mosul to see how the city was coping with the lingering ISIS threat amid Iraq’s high stakes election season.

Phoenix Breaks Down How They Composed “J-Boy” (HBO)
 
02:25
Phoenix vocalist Thomas Mars and guitarist Laurent 'Branco' Brancowitz chatted with VICE News about the making of J-Boy, a single from their album Ti Amo, released last Friday. Ti Amo's vibe was inspired by a song called, "Weekend in Rome," by the French artist Étienne Daho. "We talked a lot about this song and especially the video which is really cool because it's a song about Rome, but you can really tell that [Daho] had never been to Rome," said, Laurent Brancowitz, "it's a fantasy of Rome, and the video is shot not in Rome but in a tube station in Paris which is called Rome," The album is about Italy, from a French perspective, "from the tube station. That's [where] the beauty comes from, this contrast of not living a dream, which is boring, but wanting to live a dream and failing but that's the beauty of it." J-Boy is the first song on Ti Amo. "The song started with an 'ah,' and we wanted that sound to be the first thing that comes off it because this record is about being relieved," said Mars. The song's creation stemmed from Phoenix's favorite musicians, including an LM1 Drum Machine– closely tied with Prince's music legacy– to achieve the distinct flanged effect in J-Boy.

Inmates Are Using VR For A Chance To Get Out Of Prison
 
06:08
Six Colorado inmates sentenced to decades in prison as teenagers in the ’80s and ’90s thought they would never get out. During their 20-plus years behind bars, technology has changed the outside world dramatically. The criminal justice system has changed, too, becoming more forgiving of people who commit crimes as juveniles. Since 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court has slowly chipped away at harsh, mandatory sentences for kids, ultimately finding in 2012 that it’s unconstitutional to sentence juveniles to life without parole. This year, Colorado started an early-release program for people convicted as juveniles who have already served 20 years of their sentences. To get ready for life on the outside, inmates in the three-year program use virtual reality to prepare for stressful situations and practice skills they never learned as teens, like doing laundry and grocery shopping. VICE News visited the medium-security Fremont Correctional Facility as they used VR for the first time.

Why The “NRA Of Knives” Is Fighting To Combat This Knife Law  (HBO)
 
06:08
In New York City, about 4,000 people are arrested each year for the crime of carrying a common folding knife. Many of the defendants turn out to be people who need the knives for work, including electricians, plumbers, and construction workers. But under a 1958 New York state law, they’re often prosecuted for carrying a gravity knife — defined as a knife where the blade drops out of the handle and locks into place by the force of gravity — and possession can result in a felony conviction and years of jail time. “It didn’t make sense to me — for a pocket knife to have somebody’s life ruined is crazy. It really is." Roderick Prude, a cafeteria cook whose arrest for possession of a gravity knife was bumped up to a felony, told VICE News. Around 84 percent of people prosecuted under the law are people of color, prompting advocates to push back against what they see as an absurd and discriminatory law. These activists have found an unlikely ally in Doug Ritter, head of Knife Rights, a grassroots organization devoted to getting rid of knife laws across the United States that acts as a sort of NRA of knives. And they've been gearing up for a fight: Knife Rights filed a federal civil rights lawsuit in 2011 against the city of New York and District Attorney Cy Vance over the statute against gravity knives.

Meet The Comedy Duo Who Got Sued For Pranking The News
 
06:19
When they infiltrated three morning news programs by passing themselves off as a hilariously un-athletic strongman duo, Brooklyn comedians Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett were not the first people to prank TV News. Left-leaning activists The Yes Men famously infiltrated BBC, and right-wing provocateur James O'Keefe unsuccessfully attempted to plant a false story in the Washington Post. But Prueher and Pickett, who run the Found Footage Festival, have no overt political agenda and are happy to simply interrupt news programming with the absurd or profane. Out of embarrassment or pragmatism, media companies generally avoid legal retaliation after getting pranked. Yet when Prueher and Pickett pranked Gray Television, the company sued, kicking off a battle over free speech, comedy, and how easy it can be get past TV bookers.

Detroiters Are Waging Paintball Wars As A Way To Stop Gang Violence (HBO)
 
05:31
Police in several cities across the U.S. are trying to put a stop to the groups of men waging paintball battles as a part of #PaintballsUpGunsDown​ — an anti-gun violence campaign police are calling misguided. Detroit Police Chief James Craig said the #PaintballsUpGunsDown movement has gotten out of control and could backfire if officers mistake a paintball gun for a real firearm. The grassroots movement first gained traction on social media in early April as a proposed way to resolve conflicts with paint instead of bullets. Since then, participants from Atlanta to Detroit have engaged in full blown paintball wars on city streets, with as many as 50 shooters taking aim at each other at once, hitting innocent bystanders and marking up cars and homes. Over the last week, police in Detroit started making arrests for destruction of property. Paintballers say they're being targeted for being young and black and that cleaning up paint is a lot better than picking up dead bodies.

Why It's So Hard To Get The Power Back On In Puerto Rico (HBO)
 
07:52
On the three month anniversary of Hurricane María, Puerto Rico is still struggling to turn the lights on—at least a third of the island is still living in the dark. Initially, the hope was to restore power to 95% of the population by mid-December. Now, Army Corps say power won't be back until May. Hurricane María destroyed 80% of the island’s electric grid. But the unprecedented blackout isn’t just due to the storm—human beings played a role here too. VICE News traveled to Puerto Rico to figure out why it's taking so much longer than expected. We spoke to the new head of PREPA, the island's public utility company, embedded with the Army Corps of Engineers, and spent time with Puerto Ricans, who are starting to lose faith in the recovery.

Step Inside An ISIS Base That Was Just Liberated | Retaking Mosul (HBO)
 
03:42
The Iraqi-led offensive to take back the city of Mosul from the Islamic State terrorist group drags into its third week. Coalition forces are now digging in for a drawn-out, house-to-house fight in a city riddled with tunnels and rigged with improvised explosive devices. “We want to do it quickly, but in Bashiqa it’s been two years that Daesh [IS] is working on the buildings,” peshmerga commander Najat Abdullah told VICE News correspondent Seb Walker in Bashiqa, east of Mosul. “A lot of mines have been placed in the roads, approximately 10 to 15 massive ones have exploded around my troops.” Commander Abdullah’s forces discovered an abandoned IS base that the terrorists had fled in haste, leaving behind their weapons and documents. Tunnels underneath the base revealed an underground network of improvised explosive devices. The offensive has been grueling and is expected to drag on for weeks. But last week Iraqi forces saw some notable gains when they killed 116 IS fighters in bombing raids and breached the city’s outer limits for the first time in more than two years.

This Is How Easy It Is To Get Hacked | VICE on HBO, Full Episode
 
15:27
Since the 2016 election, the notion of hacking has become inextricably intertwined with one country: Russia. But cyber crimes emanating from Russia and Russian speaking countries have been around for years, fueling attacks like a 2014 data breach of more than 500 million Yahoo! accounts and a scheme that stole 160 million credit cards from American corporations. "If someone wants to hack you, they're gonna be able to" former NSA hacker Patrick Wardle told VICE News. And if a Russian wants to hack you, they've certainly got the tools: A 2016 report by the Department of Homeland Security confirmed that 75 percent of all ransomware was created in Russia. The apparent lack of ethical consideration in the buildup of Russian information technology and cyber security is rooted in decades of technical education under Stalin, who launched polytechnic schools to train engineers for his military-industrial complex. Russia's cyber capabilities can now be used for just about everything, ranging from digital bank robberies to tampering with critical infrastructure. "This is the website of a big online store." Kostya, an anonymous Russian hacker who agreed to show VICE News how easy it is to steal digital data. "I can get into their configurations and download their client database." Spurred by the trillions of dollars online and in a generation raised on the web, hacking from Russia and around the world is flourishing. VICE News went to Moscow to see the country’s expert hackers in action.

Trump Says These 21 Things Make A “Bing” Sound
 
01:07
President Donald Trump has a way with words — just ask him. During his campaign, Trump famously stated that he had “the best words.” And there are a few he likes to use a lot, like the onomatopoeic “bing.” Trump has used the sound to describe myriad things: puppets, playing cards, shooting guns, tweeting, malfunctioning rocket ships, and at least 16 other people, activities, and things. In some cases, however, the former reality-TV star can’t settle for a single “bing.” Trump often uses two or three bings in a row, for added effect. Heck he once issued eight consecutive bings to describe the “little mouth” on his then-rival Marco Rubio. Watch the above video for a semi-comprehensive list of things that go “bing,” according to Donald Trump.

How The Assassination Of RFK Changed The Life Of A Busboy (HBO)
 
05:27
Ever since he was a young boy, the Kennedy name has meant something special to Juan Romero. Growing up in Mexico, he remembers every house having a crucifix, with a picture of the pope on one side and a picture of President John F. Kennedy on the other. When he moved to Los Angeles as a teenager, he witnessed John’s brother, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, marching with Cesar Chavez. “Some people would say he could be rubbing elbows with royalty instead of walking down dirt roads with farm laborers,” Romero said. “What I felt about Robert Kennedy was that he was a champion of equal rights for everybody.” On the night of June 4th, 1968, Romero was working as a busboy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. Kennedy had just won the California Democratic Primary and was giving a victory speech in the ballroom of the hotel. Romero listened from the kitchen and hoped he might get the chance to shake the senator’s hand before he departed. He did get that chance. And seconds later, Kennedy was fatally shot by Sirhan Sirhan. Romero crouched down and cradled the senator as he lied on the kitchen floor, bleeding. The moment was captured by photographers and immortalized by newspapers across the country the following day. VICE News sat down with Romero 50 years later to hear about that moment — and how it changed his life.

AI Poker Bots Are Beating The World's Best Players (HBO)
 
03:46
What’s it like to play poker against an AI bot? Really weird and really difficult, it turns out. That was the vibe when we checked in on the 20-day “Brains vs. AI: Re-Match” in Pittsburgh, which pits four professional poker players against a Carnegie Mellon University-designed bot named Libratus. Computer scientists at the university had tried this stunt with a bot named Claudico in 2015, but the humans picked up on its weird machine weaknesses and beat it soundly. So the scientists went back to the lab and rewrote its algorithm in a few key areas to make it unbeatable. Their work paid off. On Jan. 30, Libratus made history by trouncing the humans in a marathon 120,000 hands, coming out on top by $1,766,250 in chips — and pretty much killing it every day before that. The humans ended their inglorious run by splitting shares of a $200,000 prize. The bot’s win has numerous implications for any field where decision-making is based on incomplete, or hidden, information. Or straight-up misinformation. Fields where people are forced to think like poker players, basically. Business negotiation, military strategy, cybersecurity, and medical treatment are all areas the bot’s designers say could benefit from the algorithms that govern its automated decision-making. Get ready, humanity — the bots have entered the building.

Pushing Back the Islamic State: The Battle for Rojava (Dispatch 1)
 
07:08
The northeastern city of Hasakah is one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse in Syria. Its population of Kurds, Sunni Arabs, and Christians was until recently politically divided between equal zones of Kurdish and Assad regime control. Immediately following the fall of the strategic border town of Tal Abyad from Islamic State (IS) fighters to Kurdish YPG forces in June, however, IS hit back with a sudden shock offensive on the regime-held half of Hasakah, causing regime forces to crumble in a matter of days. As the Syrian army and loyalist militias relinquished control to IS, the YPG entered the battle, first encircling IS positions and then launching a ground offensive supported by pounding coalition airstrikes. Despite IS using their elite forces in the offensive, the combination of airstrikes and YPG ground troops proved too much and IS fled its recent gains in the city, leaving behind only ruined buildings and mangled bodies. For the first time, the YPG now finds itself in almost total control of Hasakah, with the regime squeezed into the central government district and IS cornered in the city's southern outskirts. VICE News secured exclusive access to YPG fighters as they cleared southern Hasakah of Islamic State militants.

Hong Kong Is Running Out Of Space To Bury Its Dead (HBO)
 
04:41
In land-scarce Hong Kong, finding a final resting place for the dead can be a nightmare. And new regulations that kicked in this year have made it even harder. Permanent cemetery plots ran out a long time ago, so cremation has become the preferred option for Hong Kong residents. But finding a spot, or a niche, in a government-run columbarium (buildings where urns are stored) involves a lengthy wait that can take years. Private columbaria are the best alternative for those who can afford it, but in 2017 the government decided to regulate the market and forced private operators to get licensed. Private operators had until March 31 to submit their applications, but no licenses have been granted yet. In the meantime, private columbaria haven’t been allowed to sell or let out any new niches, effectively causing a freeze in the market since last June. VICE News went to Hong Kong to see just how hard it is for Hongkongers to find a resting place, and to look at some of the solutions being offered Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News Check out VICE News for more: http://vicenews.com Follow VICE News here: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/vicenews Twitter: https://twitter.com/vicenews Tumblr: http://vicenews.tumblr.com/ Instagram: http://instagram.com/vicenews More videos from the VICE network: https://www.fb.com/vicevideo

Militant Somalia: The Fight Against al Shabaab
 
09:11
Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News Al Shabaab has been a threat to Somalia for almost a decade. In 2013, the group claimed responsibility for the Westgate Mall attacks in Nairobi, Kenya, where 67 people were killed. This signaled a shift in the scope of al Shabaab's tactics, which until this point had been focused within Somalia, where the group was in control of much of the country. Over the past few years, with help from the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), many cities that were once al Shabaab strongholds were taken back by Somali forces. VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky traveled to Somalia in the wake of AMISOM taking back the coastal city of Barawe — where Ikrima, the man believed to be behind the Westgate attacks, resided — to investigate how al Shabaab evolved from a localized threat to a regional one.

Inside The Monumental Effort To Rid The World's Oceans From Plastic: VICE on HBO | Full Episode
 
13:28
Plastic in the world's oceans is reaching epidemic proportions -- it's estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. The world dumps the equivalent of one garbage truck of plastic into the ocean every minute, or eight million tonnes of plastic every year. Beyond ruining beaches and harming marine life, this plastic is becoming a permanent part of food chains and ecosystems by breaking down into dangerous microplastics, or tiny particles that absorb chemicals in their environment. These microplastics have made their way across the globe and into ecosystems as remote as the Arctic sea ice. In 2008, VICE documented the scope of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a subtropical gyre where marine debris concentrates due to the ocean's currents. Eight years later, VICE followed up on the problem, visiting one of the most polluted beaches in the world, Kamilo Point in Hawaii, and exploring how that plastic is finding its way into our food chain. Though the sheer magnitude of waste in our oceans makes the problem seem impossible to fix, one young Dutch engineer claims he has the solution. This year, Boyan Slat and his Ocean Cleanup team plan to deploy a structure in the Pacific with the aim to clean up half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch’s plastic in just 5 years, all while converting millions of pounds of collected plastic into reusable products. VICE traveled to the North Sea to see the deployment of Slat's prototype and discuss the feasibility of saving our world’s oceans.

We Spoke to the Man Who Blew the Whistle On Alleged Sex Cult Inside NXIVM (HBO)

The story of alleged cult NXIVM has all the makings of a binge-worthy docuseries. A secretive leader who allegedly had women branded with his initials, wealthy heiresses who helped finance the organization, and a Hollywood actress accused of luring in fresh recruits. But before all that was public, back in 2007, NXIVM, correctly predicting in advance the firestorm of press that lurked ahead, hired Frank Parlato to help with its public relations. They hoped he might go after detractors of the group accusing it of being a cult. He ended up exposing the story that made the alleged cult famous: that it had a secret sorority that was branding female "slaves" with leader Keith Raniere's initials. "I turned on an instant and said this is more than a cult. This is a deadly cult. This is more than a kooky group. This is a crazy group, a criminally insane group and it's not just Raniere," Parlato said. Raniere and actress Allison Mack have since been arrested and face sex trafficking and forced labor charges. Both have pleaded not guilty. NXIVM denies its a cult and says it's working with the authorities to demonstrate Raniere's innocence. Their lawyers wouldn't comment for this piece.

Chernobyl still holds the distinction of being the world’s worst nuclear disaster. And the job of containing the fallout has required an international cast of players.

Using Drones To Gather Whale Snot — For Science (HBO)
 
05:02
Iain Kerr has been studying whales for the last 30 years. Traditionally, this involves chasing a whale down, shooting it with a dart, and collecting a flesh sample of the whale. But recently, he’s come up with a new source of data: whale snot. Over the last few years, Kerr has been experimenting with flying drones through the slimy particulate matter that shoots up into the air when a whale surfaces to breathe. Petri dishes affixed to the drone pick up the sludge, which is then taken back to a lab for analysis. He calls his tool the “Snotbot”. Aside from the fun factor of flying through clouds of whale snot, Kerr views his research as part of a global conservation effort. "Whales are a great bio indicator of ocean health… so if you want to know what's going on with our oceans, there's no better species to look at than whales," Kerr says. "Healthy oceans means healthy humans." VICE News followed his team of researchers as they chased a whale population around off the coast of Mexico, collecting as much snot as humanly possible (and accidentally discovering some new whale behavior in the process).

But income disparity in China is increasing and over the next decade, a projected 400 million will move to China’s cities. The Chinese government, fearing a widening inequality gap between the cities and the countryside, is struggling to control the bubble.

What Life Is Like For Afghans Facing The Deadliest Taliban Yet: VICE on HBO, Full Episode
 
23:03
After more than 16 years of war, Afghan civilians live each day under constant threat, as U.S. forces and the Afghan government struggle to secure the country. Despite hundreds of billions of dollars spent on the war since 2001, U.S. goals are far from within reach. Meanwhile, the Taliban has never been stronger, controlling more land than ever before and establishing footholds in nearly every province in Afghanistan. President Donald Trump has vowed to undo some of the terror group’s grip on the country and force it back to the negotiating table. But his new strategy, which centers on thousands of additional U.S. troops and an intensification of airstrikes, has only just begun to produce gains. The Taliban, facing renewed pressure, have increased terror attacks on major cities, striking at the heart of Kabul recently, in a series of devastating attacks that left hundreds of civilians dead in the span of a week. VICE’s Ben Anderson travelled to Afghanistan in October 2016 as the Taliban were on the verge of retaking Helmand Province, once a crucial territory in the U.S. war. Reconnecting with families he’d visited years earlier, he saw just how little has been done to contain the Taliban’s influence across the country’s rural landscape, and the challenges that await Afghan and U.S. forces.

The Killing Rooms Of Mosul Are Filled With Bodies And Mystery | Full Segment (HBO)
 
11:41
MOSUL, Iraq — In March, VICE returned to Mosul for the first time since the war against ISIS was declared over eight months ago. While life may be returning to normal in the eastern half of the city, on the other side of the river — where the fighting was most intense — the scale of rebuilding that needs to be done is monumental. It’s estimated there are still 8 million tons of conflict debris that need to be moved before reconstruction can start, equivalent to three times the size of the Great Pyramid of Egypt. About 75 percent of that rubble is in West Mosul, and it’s mixed with so much unexploded ordnance that experts say this is now one of the most contaminated spots on the planet. In the Old City, where ISIS made its last stand, residents have slowly started to come back – a few business owners hoping to repair shops, and families who have no other option but to live in their damaged homes. Some water tanks have been trucked in, and electricity cables have been temporarily patched together along some streets, but the place feels deserted, and in some ways the scene was not that different from how it looked shortly after the fighting.

The Generational Divide That Could Kill Legal Weed In New Jersey (HBO)
 
06:12
The race to legalize recreational marijuana is on in New Jersey, and not everyone in the black community is happy about it. New Jersey's governor Phil Murphy has made legal weed one of his pet issues, pitching it as a social justice issue and promising to legalize the drug in New Jersey by the end of this year. If he succeeds, the state would become just the ninth state (not including Washington D.C.) to legalize the drug. It would also become just the second state to do it legislatively, since it will be decided by the state's congress instead of by its voters. But opposition is mounting, and not just from older, white, conservative politicians. In fact, one of the loudest skeptics is New Jersey's Legislative Black Caucus, which could sway the vote in November. Roberto Ferdman attended a hearing held by the black caucus where older members of the black community shared their worries and warned about the downsides of legal weed. He also traveled to Los Angeles to chat with New Jersey native and former NBA player Al Harrington, who was taught to hate marijuana. He now has a successful weed business out west, and he's itching to bring back home.
