This Trained Singer Teaches Metal Bands How To Scream (HBO)
 
04:12
Melissa Cross is a classically trained singer and actress. But it’s her work with metal bands that’s the reason for her success, and her nom de guerre: the “Queen of Scream.” The 60-year-old has worked with some of the biggest names in hardcore, from Slipknot to Slayer and Megadeth. As America’s heavy bands hit the road this summer, Cross is in demand--and takes VICE News backstage at the Vans Warped Tour stop in San Antonio.

The Sinaloa Cartel Is Alive And Thriving Without El Chapo
 
04:45
The Sinaloa drug cartel is the largest cartel in the world, and it’s estimated to rake in $3 billion a year. VICE News visited Mexico’s Golden Triangle, the stronghold of the Sinaloa cartel, just days before the extradition of drug lord El Chapo. A decade ago, Mexico declared war on the country’s drug cartels, deploying the military to dismantle them. That means destroying their drug crops. “They do the destruction by hand and also with fumigation with air force planes,” Cmdr. Cesar Augusto Bonilla told VICE News in the “Golden Triangle,” which is notorious for its marijuana and poppy production. “They collect everything that’s been destroyed, and continue to incinerate it.” These types of raids are supposed to cut into the cartel’s profits, just as the arrest of kingpins like El Chapo are supposed to cripple trafficking networks by removing their top commanders. But even after his decade-long imprisonment, and now as he faces extradition, the organization El Chapo built is very much intact. “Nothing has changed here,” the local boss said. “Drug trafficking will never end.” Read: “We visited a hidden poppy field the Sinaloa Cartel uses to produce heroin” - http://bit.ly/2jnKV93 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

The Bodies Of Missing People Are Rapidly Turning Up In Mexico (HBO)
 
08:31
For three years, Mario Vergara has ventured regularly into the hills of the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, searching for the remains of his brother Tomás. Although he hasn't located his brother, he's found dozens of buried bodies—but this isn't unusual—in fact, it's only evidence of a much larger problem. Vergara is part of a loose movement of buscadores, or searchers, who spurred to action after the disappearance of 43 students in Iguala. The students went missing after a confrontation with security forces in September, 2014 and the search for their remains resulted in the discovery of dozens of other bodies buried in mass graves. The case of the 43 blew the cover off the epidemic of forced disappearances in Mexico, where more than 32,000 people are estimated to be missing. It's only one symptom of a series of deeply entrenched issues. In Mexico, the vast majority of crimes go unpunished, countless government officials participate in organized crime, and the police and military have been deployed in massive numbers in an ostensible fight against the cartels. The result is a country where thousands of heavily armed men — be they private actors or agents of the state — can kill with impunity.

What It Takes To Pass The Army's Combat Fitness Test (HBO)
 
05:15
For the first time in nearly 40 years, the United States Army is changing how it measures the physical fitness of its soldiers. Over the course of the next year and a half, the Army will roll out the new Army Combat Fitness Test, or ACFT, to its 1.1 million soldiers across the globe. It’s hoped that the new test will prepare troops for the rigors of combat, something that some commanders say the old test was failing to do. VICE News correspondent Alzo Slade headed down to Fort Eustis, Virginia, to see if he could measure up.

Inside ISIS's Final Fight (HBO)
 
09:29
In a deserted farmhouse on the Deir Ezzor frontline, a group of Arab YPG fighters and foreign volunteers — an American, a Scotsman, an Australian and a South Korean — took up position on the edge of Islamic State territory, firing wildly from the hollow windows onto ISIS fighters hiding in the orchards below. Unseen from the house, ISIS militants crept forward into the building’s garden, launching a sudden assault on this isolated position, targeting the group with snipers, machine gun and anti-tank rocket fire before they attempted to storm it. After years of bloody conflict across northern and eastern Syria, the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces have pushed ISIS to the brink of total defeat. The remaining ISIS fighters now wait out their days in a cluster of tiny villages nestled between the Euphrates river and the Iraqi border. Surrounded, outnumbered, and outgunned, the jihadist group’s last diehard fighters aren’t giving up. And they’re being met by US-backed forces and foreign volunteers, many of whom have traveled thousands of miles for the final fight. Huddling in the central stairwell for cover, deafened by the roar of rockets hitting the rooms around them, YPG fighters argued furiously over their next move. “We’re surrounded,” shouted the Australian YPG fighter, “We’re going to have to jump from the balcony and make a run for it.” They quickly gathered blankets, mattresses and curtains, throwing them to the ground outside to soften the fall. Escaping through the alleyway, the fighters retreated to safety in a nearby outpost as Coalition airstrikes rained down on the besieged house. On the map, the war against the Islamic State is all but won. But here in the middle Euphrates river valley, where much of the population resents the US-backed forces as alien occupiers, these fighters are likely to face many more sudden ambushes and assaults from within this dense patchwork of orchards and villages, even after the battle for Baghuz is won.

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.

What Happened When Prisoners Started Vaping (HBO)
 
06:04
Jamie Mosley is a successful entrepreneur, who started a company, and made a lot of money, selling a product you might not have realized there was a market for: E-cigarettes that are safe for jails. Specifically, for his jail — or at least, that's how it started. Mosley, a former state police officer who moonlights as a NASCAR driver, was elected Jailer of Laurel County Kentucky in 2012. Without the option to sell tobacco in his commissary, the jail saw a new set of problems emerge, like withdrawal issues, more inmate fighting, and an increase in black market trade of tobacco. Furthermore, Mosley found that corrections staff had one less thing to take away from inmates to discourage bad behavior. "When I developed the product. It was really not with the intention of starting a company I was just trying to solve a problem within my own facility." Mosley told VICE News. So he got the idea to introduce a vape option to his jail, but all of the ones on the market were too easily turned into weapons. So he invented a solution. "Everything out there had a metal casing or was a very very hard plastic, and could be hammered down into a shank," Mosley said, "We also wanted something with a very low voltage so that you couldn't utilize it for an ignition source to start a fire with." Crossbar, as Mosley calls his product, is now in some 33 prisons and jails across the country, and is expected to do $3.5 million in sales this year. It sells to prisons and jails for about $2 to $3, and the jails, in turn, sell it to inmates for between $10-15. One Crossbar e-cig is said to be the equivalent of about two packs of cigarettes, but inmates say they are still essentially luxury items. And while Mosley sells the ecigs to his own jail at cost, it’s not hard to see the excellent profit margins that would be attractive to other facilities. This additional revenue source is one of the main marketing points for Crossbar. And while the e-cig trade has made Mosley a fairly wealthy man, he insists he has no plans to give up the job he loves: working at the jail.

Dark Matter — The Greatest Mystery of The Universe | VICE on HBO
 
11:37
Dark matter and dark energy comprise the vast majority of our universe, but it is the biggest mystery in modern physics to figure out what they actually are. The five percent of matter we can perceive abides by the laws of physics as we understand them. But when scientists applied the laws of gravity to how fast nearby galaxies are rotation, the math didn't add up. The other 95% of our universe is known only as dark matter and dark energy and scientists around the world are scrambling to understand what these two forces are. ​"Who knows what discoveries and impacts on our lives will come" said Dr. Bruno Leibundgut, an astronomer at the European Southern Observatory, where he and his team are utilizing the most powerful telescope on Earth to figure out just how much the universe's expansion is accelerating.​ And in an abandoned gold mine a mile beneath the Black Hills of South Dakota, scientists are using a massive tank of supercooled liquid xenon as they wait for photosensors to measure an elusive dark matter particle.​​ Nuclear physicist and VICE correspondent Taylor Wilson went to meet the scientists working to solve the greatest mystery of the universe.

When Givenchy Needs To Sell A Handbag In China, They Call Mr. Bags (HBO)
 
05:53
Chinese consumers buy a full third of all luxury goods sold across the globe. But they're getting sick of celebrity endorsements. That's where Mr. Bags comes in. Mr. Bags, whose real name is Tao Liang, started out as a college student studying finance. But his real passion was women's handbags, and so he started up a blog about it. The content was simple: reviews of women's handbags, advice on new trends — stuff you'd normally see in a fashion magazine. But Mr Bags struck a nerve among young Chinese who were getting bored with pushy editorials and cheesy advertising, and 4 years and 4 million followers later, he's gone from a tiny blog to being the singular most influential voice in the Chinese handbags industry. And he's not just writing about bags nowadays — he's making them. Prestigious design houses like Givenchy and Tod's have signed him up to design limited-run bags for them. To see how one 26 year old has flipped the Chinese luxury market on its head, watch the video above.

Hair Braiders In New Jersey Are At Constant Risk Of Losing Their Jobs (HBO)

Hair braiders in many states across the country are at constant risk of massive fines and losing their jobs.The primary reason: state cosmetology boards. Over the past several decades, these boards have lobbied to require licensing for braiding services, despite offering little training in the discipline or justifying why a non-invasive, non-chemical method needs to be so heavily regulated. Now hair braiders and politicians are fighting back against policies they claim disproportionately affect immigrant women of color.

This Is Mosul 18 Months After ISIS Was Driven Out (HBO)
 
09:14
Rajab Younes Rajab walks through the ruins of Mosul’s Old City, pointing at homes where his friends used to live. "I saw people dying in front of me and I couldn't help them," he says. During the 2017 battle to recapture the city from ISIS, the west of the city was decimated, killing thousands. Homes and businesses were also destroyed — and Rajab’s home was no different. Rajab says he’s still haunted by what he witnessed - he has insomnia and still mourns the friends he lost in the battle. ‘I used to see my friends more than I saw my family,’ he says tearily. For him, returning to rebuild the family home was something he initially refused to do. But his father, Younes, couldn’t keep paying for rented accommodation elsewhere. Remarkably, some eighteen months since the city was liberated, theirs is the first home in the neighborhood to be completed - but Rajab isn’t in the mood for celebrating. ‘One of the reasons is the number of tragedies I've seen here,’ he says. ‘Perhaps no one’s ever witnessed what I did. ‘As soon as I leave the house, I thought I was going to die. I was targeted by a sniper more than six times. He almost killed me the last time.’ Rajab shares the anger of many here in Mosul’s Old City - a growing annoyance at the slow pace of reconstruction in the city and the apparent lack of government money to help residents rebuild. His father used the family savings to complete the project. ‘Nothing has changed here, two years after the liberation. When they published Iraq's draft 2019 budget, Mosul got one percent,’ Rajab says. The city may have been liberated nearly 18 months ago - but ISIS is still a looming threat here. Four teenagers were killed on their way to school two weeks ago, and a car bomb outside a popular restaurant in the city a month ago, killed three. But the authorities are keen to downplay ISIS’ presence, blaming political elements for the recent violence. For the older generation like his father, returning home has been the priority. Of the current security situation in the city, Younes says, ‘Some incidents happen here and there but the state is in control. I'm not worried at all.’ Listening to his father, Rajab shakes his head angrily. He believes if things don’t improve soon, the city’s youth could be lured back into ISIS’ grasp. ‘It's not safe at all. I am worried about my own life. I'm worried about my family when even now, ISIS members and leaders are still here. I was surprised by the recent explosions. It means there are sleeper cells. The government should stop them and stop them from expanding again.’ 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

Hunting For A Rare Congolese Weed Strain With “The Kings of Cannabis” | VICE on HBO
 
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.

Waging War: Gangs of El Salvador (Part 1)
 
11:53
El Salvador is set to eclipse Honduras as the country with the highest homicide rate in the world. ​There have already been over 5,700 murders this year in a country with a population of just over six million. El Salvador’s murder rate is now the highest it’s been since the end of the country’s brutal civil war — there is on average ​around ​one murder an hour. The staggering death toll follows the breakdown of a truce between powerful, rival gangs and the government. Police and military are now combatting the gangs head-on ​and, as part of its so-called "iron fist" strategy, gang members are ​being ​charged​ with a new crime — membership of a terrorist organization. In part one of our five-part series, VICE News correspondent Danny Gold headed to El Salvador to investigate what many are now calling a war between gangs and ​the government.

Burnham’s directorial debut chronicles a week in the life of a 13-year-old girl as she graduates from middle school. Confessional videos that his main character, Kayla, records on her laptop function as vignettes throughout the film. But this is not a nostalgic story of a teen whose online antics lead to unexpected celebrity. Instead, Burnham focuses on a more anonymous experience of digital life. “I've always been annoyed that we only talk about the people that go viral on the Internet,” Burnham told VICE News. “And as someone that goes viral, it's actually not that interesting. The result is a gripping snapshot of anxiety and adolescence in the digital age, but unlike most Hollywood glamorizations of youth, Burnham leans into hyperrealism. He casts real teens, lets hormonal acne have its close-up, and deliberately leaves in every “Um,” “Like,” and “You know.” “Rather than making a movie that makes fun of a YouTube celebrity with a bunch of subscribers and stuff which everyone has done, why not make a movie about a kid that's watching one of those people? That wants to be them and is sort of drowning in the cultural standards set by all those people?" Burnham explains. "Because that's really what's happening.” 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

The Vigilante Group Of New Yorkers Who Hunt Rats At Night (HBO)
 
06:54
Rats aren't only a part of New York City’s underground — they're an inseparable part of its pop culture. There’s Master Splinter from the Ninja Turtles, Pizza Rat, and even Cannibal Rat. But for every celebrity rat, there’s another 250,000 to 2 million anonymous rodents living in the city — and the city health department is fighting to bring down. The battle can be deadly. Last year, three people in a Bronx city block contracted leptospirosis through rat urine. Only two survived. To combat the problem, Mayor Bill de Blasio launched a $32 million initiative to rid New York of its signature rodents, concentrating on hyper-infested areas that the city describes as "rat reservoirs." Multiple city agencies are currently focusing their efforts around public housing buildings, where they plan to replace dirt basement floors, block passageways and amp up trapping, baiting and poisoning efforts.They also apply dry ice to the rats’ burrow systems, effectively suffocating them as the carbon dioxide gets released while the ice melts. But if all else fails, a small group of dedicated rat hunters are ready to step in. When dusk settles, Richard Reynolds and his vigilante rat hunters known as “The Ryders Alley Trencher-Fed Society” — or R.A.T.S for short — roam lower Manhattan’s streets and dumpsters, keeping their dogs’ instincts sharp and the hunting tradition alive. In the three decades Richard has been hunting rats with his dogs, he says he must have killed thousands of rats. But he doesn’t really keep track. A hunter through and through, he only counts the ones that get away.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg Doesn't Think He's Too Young To Be President
 
06:56
South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is 37 years old. He's a Democrat. He's a veteran of Afghanistan and a Rhodes Scholar. So he figures now is the time to run for president. In a field where people are mostly talking about candidates in their late 60s (like Sen. Elizabeth Warren) or even late 70s (Sen. Bernie Sanders or former vice president Joe Biden,) Buttigieg stands out. He doesn't say those candidates are too old to be president, but he does say age matters. Millennials are going to be around far longer than the remaining baby boomers, he says, so the problems of climate change and economic disparity are far more relevant to them. Buttigieg's campaign is a longshot. But he's making a good impression in public appearances. VICE News followed Buttigieg on his first day of campaigning in Iowa.

How New York City's Shit Ended Up Stuck On A Train In Alabama (HBO)
 
04:30
No one, it seems, wants the poop train. And not the city of New York, which paid an Alabama landfill company to take it. Not small towns in Pennsylvania, where several sites recently stopped accepting the city's treated human waste. And not the town of West Jefferson, Alabama, where the waste, a product called biosolids, was transferred to dump trucks at the local rail yard — until the city won an injunction to stop the landfill company, Big Sky Environmental, from using their town as a transfer point. That federal court decision stranded roughly 250 containers full of treated New York sewage one town over, on rail cars in tiny Parrish, Alabama. The overwhelming smell polluting the air here on warm days underscores how easy it is for something to go wrong in the nation’s fragile sewage-disposal system. New York City once sold its biosolids to farmers as fertilizer. But the city decided that method was too expensive, and now ships treated sewage to cost-saving landfills. Until recently, one of those site was the landfill run by Big Sky Environmental. Then, New York City cancelled its contract with the company after Parrish residents complained about the smell, and the company has begun to move cars out of the area. So there's a solution in sight for residents of Parrish, but New York has an endless stream of waste that has to be dealt with, without breaking the bank.

Warren Buffet’s Financial Crisis Warning (HBO)
 
04:02
When Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy ten years ago on Friday, the question on everyone’s minds was simple: “Who’s next?” If a pillar of Wall Street worth hundreds of billions of dollars just months before couldn’t be trusted with the public's money, then nowhere was safe. Panicked investors rushed for the door, banks refused to lend to each other, and money market funds began to collapse. “I describe it as an economic Pearl Harbor,” Warren Buffett, the legendary investor of Berkshire Hathaway, told VICE News. “It was something we hadn’t seen before. Even the 1929 panic was nothing like this. I mean, the system stopped.“ Buffett had a front row seat to the global crisis even before the Bush Administration took up the struggle. He had been approached by Lehman’s CEO Dick Fuld for emergency capital earlier in the summer, and after it failed, he found himself courted by other teetering investment banks desperate for capital. His $5 billion investment in Goldman Sachs saved the firm, and netted him billions. He credits the Bush administration, led by Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, with helping to prevent a second Great Depression. “When they realized the gravity of what was happening, we were having a run on the United States, maybe a run on the world, they stepped up,” Buffett said. He’s not convinced, however, that the financial community's takeaway from its brush with financial Armageddon will prevent future disaster. “Humans will continue to behave foolishly and sometimes en masse. And that doesn’t change. We get smarter but we don’t get wiser," Buffett said.

What ISIS Left Behind In Iraq | VICE News Tonight (HBO)

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.

Returning To Marawi After ISIS (HBO)

At the 2017 Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) this Monday, trade talks were at the top of the agenda, but Trump also took the opportunity to congratulate Duterte for his strong stance on terror, and the liberation of the city of Marawi last month. Militants aligned with ISIS took hold of the city in May and what was supposed to be a two week battle turned into a five month long siege, where the Philippine military (assisted by U.S. intelligence, weapons and funding of 13.6 million dollars) struggled to take down the highly equipped and skilled opposition. But, the battle is far from over. This is a Muslim majority region, prone to sectarian violence and anti-government sentiment for close to a decade. Now the state will have to re-build trust within a shaken and fragile community, as residents cautiously return to the outskirts of the city. VICE News was there at the height of the battle in June and returned to count the cost of war.

2 Million Snakes Have Taken Over The Island Of Guam (HBO)
 
05:17
Brown tree snakes are taking over Guam — in fact, they outnumber humans on the island 10 to 1, and they've taken a major toll on its ecosystem. The problem now has the U.S. government on the offensive, enlisting multiple government agencies, including the Department of Defense, to eradicate the invasive reptiles. Since brown tree snakes are nocturnal, hunting them takes place at night. Both the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Geological Survey deploy groups of researchers to monitor traps and catch the snakes by hand. Catching them is a tedious process, but it's crucial that the snakes be studied, and tracked, in order to develop effective control methods. Brown tree snakes have been a problem for the U.S. territory of Guam since the 1950s, when they were introduced there, most likely from a military vessel coming back to port from a neighboring island. But it's gotten to the level of forcing government action — to kill them, or at least keep them from getting off the island and causing the same problem somewhere else.

When Shin Song Hyuk was three years old, an American couple in Detroit adopted him and moved him from South Korea to the United States. His new family changed his name to Adam, but did not fill out the basic forms that guarantee citizenship for international adoptees. This meant Adam was an undocumented immigrant. Nobody knows exactly how many international adoptees grow up undocumented due to negligence or clerical error, but given the difficulties of adopted life, many of them end up in trouble with the law, which, in turn, opens them up for deportation to homelands they do not remember and cultures which are completely foreign to them.

Weed Fraud: Are you Getting Cheated?

Many of the states that have legalized marijuana now require tests for potency and purity to ensure that consumers know exactly what they’re buying when they visit a dispensary. But the labs that conduct these tests are governed by rules that vary widely from state to state, and there are concerns within the industry that unscrupulous labs are operating without adequate oversight and colluding with growers to falsify results. VICE News visited a testing lab in Washington state, where we uncovered inaccurate labeling on a package of legal marijuana and met a grower who says some labs have offered to inflate his marijuana’s THC content in order to make it more valuable — a practice he believes jeopardizes the future of the industry.

How To Train For The World's Most Elite Wine Exam (HBO)
 
07:57
The Master sommelier exam was established in 1969, to distinguish and certify the cream of wine professionals — those deigned specialist enough to work in the very finest dining in the world. It has a reputation for being impossible to pass. Becoming certified is so difficult that to date there are fewer than 300 master sommeliers in the world. On average only about 10 to 12 percent of those who attempt the test actually pass each year. Last year’s results were unprecedented — a record 24 sommeliers passed. But after allegations emerged that someone leaked information about the exam in an email, all 23 those who took the blind tasting last year had their title revoked. Most aspiring masters fall at the last hurdle — the blind tasting portion of the exam — where they are required to describe and identify the origin, grape, year, and quality of 6 wines — just by tasting them. Training for this exam is renowned for being mentally, emotionally and financially taxing. But although the byzantine process is costly and all consuming, there is a life-long payoff for passing. Master sommeliers are revered for a combination of their profound arcane knowledge of wine and exceptional palates, and can double their salaries as a result. Which is why when allegations of cheating emerged last year, the wine world was scandalized. A few weeks after the record pass rate, the board of examiners revealed that someone had leaked information in an email about the blind tasting wines, and the decision was made to revoke the titles of all 23 newly awarded masters. Among them was Vincent Morrow, and his housemates Andrey and Jeremy. They live together in San Francisco where they are training for a retest. VICE News spent some time with them in the weeks leading up to the retake.

Inmates Are Using VR For A Chance To Get Out Of Prison

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.

Midwestern Farmers Take A Big Hit With Historic Flood Losses (HBO)
 
04:58
Paul Allen, a 75-year old cattle rancher in Bristow, Nebraska, took a terrible hit when, in the early hours of March 14, a dam collapsed about 4 miles from his ranch along the Niobrara river. His fields flooded — killing at least 60 cows and bulls (nearly a third of his herd), damaging equipment, taking out miles of fence and covering his land in mud and giant chunks of ice. Allen says the ice will have to melt before he can fully assess the damage, but the total cost is likely to exceed $150,000. None of it is covered by insurance, though he will get some relief from federal and state emergency programs. Nebraska was among the worst hit states earlier this month, when a combination of record rain and a devastating storm known as a “bomb cyclone” (i.e. a storm that drops about 24 millibars in atmospheric pressure, over 24 hours) caused widespread flooding in the Midwest. At least 1 million acres of farmland flooded in nine different states, with damages currently estimated to top 3 billion dollars. The devastation from the flooding is a hard pill to swallow for farmers across the Midwest, with many of them struggling to break even, due to a crushing combination of tariffs, low commodity prices and natural disasters like this one. Nevertheless, Allen loves life on his ranch and is not about to give up, no matter what it takes. “I know we'll get through it,” he told VICE. “It's just something you’ve got to do. And on top of everything else, the people that have been helping and calling us... crazy!

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.

France’s Yellow Vest Protesters Just Won Against Macron (HBO)
 
04:44
According to local media in France, Macron’s government announced a moratorium on the hike in fuel prices today. The U-turn comes after Saturday’s riots in Paris which the government said were the worst they had seen in 50 years. It marked the third week of “gilet jaunes” or yellow vest protests across France, named after high-visibility safety jackets the French are required to keep in their cars. The movement first came together on social media to protest an increase in fuel taxes. But among chants of “Macron Resign! Macron Resign!” at the protest, it was obvious it had become about working and middle class being hit hard by the economic policies of President Emmanuel Macron. “We need a balance between the rich and poor in France,” Jimmy Moreno told VICE News among tear gas and water cannons at L’Arc de Triomphe. Jimmy came to protest peacefully and voted for Macron in the 2017 election but says he wouldn’t vote for him again. “He has shown himself to be cold-hearted and inhuman, little more than a banker, with no place governing a nation,” Jimmy said the day after the protest at his home in the Paris suburb of Argenteuil. “What's happening now because of the government's violent actions and the yellow vests' violent reaction, is representative of French history. Every time there is a shift in governance or a revolution, there is violence, it's unavoidable,” he added. The government struggled to negotiate with the yellow vests which is an a-political grassroots movement that has no clear leadership. But smashed shop windows, graffiti, and cars burning in the streets got the government's attention. “We need to violence to stop because the violence we had against police, against institutions last week is just unacceptable so we need it to stop,” said Aurore Bergé, a deputy in the French Parliament and spokesperson for Macron’s party En Marche!.

Inside Flex—Amazon's Army Of Everyday Delivery People (HBO)
 
05:56
Amazon just had its best Prime day ever. The company sold more than 100 million products over a 36-hour period, bragging in a press release that it was the “biggest shopping event in Amazon history.” But a massive shopping event like Prime Day is only in possible in part because of Amazon’s Flex program, which recruits everyday people to deliver Amazon packages for a modest wage. That's because the most expensive part of delivering a package is getting it from a local warehouse to a customer's doorstep. Amazon’s Flex program helps reduce that cost by hiring delivery drivers as independent contractors. VICE News followed a married couple in Phoenix, AZ, who use Flex as their primary source of income. “[Flex] saved our lives,” Beverly Karpinski, 64, told VICE News. “For three months we had no income except for my husband’s social security check, and one day I was on Craigslist and I saw Amazon was hiring independent delivery drivers.” Karpinski and her husband, Ed, both signed up for Flex and have been delivering packages for more than a year. In Arizona, the Karpinski’s make about $18 an hour before expenses. You don’t need any qualifications to drive for Flex: just pass a background check and have a valid driver's license. Due to the driver’s independent contractor status, Amazon doesn’t provide any benefits like healthcare or paid time off. Amazon says Flex drivers across the country make $18-$25 an hour, but that doesn’t include gas or car maintenance. Amazon declined to provide any details about how many Flex drivers Amazon hires, or how many fulfillment centers across the country support Flex, but an Amazon spokesperson confirmed that the company leverages its malleable Flex workforce in order to compensate for Prime Day. The spokesperson also confirmed that the delivery route given to Flex drivers is generated by an Amazon algorithm.

What It Costs To Live in London | Making It
 
03:02
London consistently nabs a top spot on lists ranking the world’s most expensive cities. Along with rent, home prices are also on the rise and Londoners are feeling the pinch. So what does it take to get by in London? We stepped into the daily life of Aaron Christian, a freelance commercial director born and raised in the city. “The idea of attempting to own a house has become very unrealistic and I don’t think that’s really going to change so I’m definitely more open to living in another part of Europe.” 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

Afghans Are Facing The Deadliest Taliban Yet | VICE on HBO
 
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.
