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 Viral Mastermind Behind The Harlem Shake Meme Wrote An Album About Heartbreak (HBO)
 
05:11
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.

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.

Driving For Uber, Sleeping In Her Car (HBO )
 
05:04
On Wednesday at 2:30 AM, Uber driver Terri White left her home in Stockton, California, and drove 83 miles to San Francisco for work. She wouldn’t be home until Friday afternoon. White naps in her car between rush hours and heats up her lunch at a local gas station. She says one in five Uber drivers she meets sleeps in their car. “I love people, I love being able to breathe the air, I’m not confined to a desk, and I can do what I want,” White told VICE News correspondent Nellie Bowles. “I don’t have to wait for someone to relieve me for a break or a lunch, I just do it.” Uber’s biggest competitor, Lyft, locks drivers out of the platform after they’ve worked 14 hours in a day. Uber does not. Watch what its like to be an Uber driver in a city you can't afford to live in.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Battle Raging In Nigeria Over Control Of Oil | VICE on HBO
 
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.

Inside El Chapo’s Escape Tunnel
 
11:19
Infamous drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who daringly escaped prison on July 11, utilized a tunnel leading from the only “supermax” maximum-security prison in Mexico, where he'd been held. At least that's the explanation Mexican authorities have given as to how the leader of the Sinaloa cartel escaped prison for the second time. In the aftermath of the escape, VICE News went to Almoloya de Juarez to inspect the exit of the tunnel that “El Chapo" allegedly used, and spoke with an activist and former inmate of Altiplano prison who claims to have discovered flaws in the authorities’ version of events.

One Day in Usulután: Gangs of El Salvador (Part 3)
 
15:20
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. The government's crackdown on the gangs in the capital has ​forced gang members ​to spread out all over the country and ​with them they have taken high levels of violence. ​ In part three of our five-part series, VICE News correspondent Danny Gold spends a day in Usulután, a small rural region of 300,000, now in the grip of ​a new wave of ​murder​s​ and disappearances.

Rival Crip Gangs Are Playing Softball To Make Peace In LA (HBO)
 
05:26
It’s not just a Crips versus Bloods thing -- Crips kill Crips too. It’s a reality that some members say has become more common than Crip on Blood violence. “We will kill each other and it’s over the most senseless things,” said Edward “Casanova” Davis of the Raymond Avenue Crips. “One of the biggest beefs in Crips is over a bicycle...that happened probably 35 years ago, and they can’t let it go.” The factions within the Crips are dictated by the grounds they represent. Anyone outside the borders of their territory is considered an enemy, whether Blood or Crip. Three years ago, a group of older members from varying, and some warring, neighborhoods, came together for an experiment to bring rival crip sets together in a softball league in an effort to reclaim their communities. Raymond Avenue Crips, Santana Blocc Crips, Harlem 30s Crips, East Coast Crips, Gundry Blocc Crips, Nutty Blocc Crips, Rollin’ 40s Crips, Rollin’ 90s Crips, Rollin’ 100s Crips, and two female teams from mixed neighborhoods, all together in one league. It was once thought unheard of and yet, now it’s what they crave in the off season. “A lot of people don’t see each other until the league starts back up,” said Dabon Morton of the Harlem 30s Crips. “I come to hang out like everybody else cause this is where we get to see each other.” 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

Molossia. Slobovia. The Aerican Empire. If you don’t remember any of these countries from geography class, you’re not alone. They are all “micronations,” self-declared sovereign states not formally recognized by any official authority (other than each other). This summer, representatives from 27 of these would-be fiefdoms gathered for a summit in Dunwoody, Georgia. While several of these micronations claim that they are their own autonomous countries, many are created as a political protest, for artistic reasons or as a social experiment. MicroCon 2017 was hosted by Veronica Boritz, who also identifies as Queen Anastasia von Elphberg of Ruritania. The event, which lasted four days, included multiple outings for the micronational leaders, a symposium with speeches on subjects like “Micronational post system” and “Women in micronations: Starting your own or supporting your dictator husband.” Watch more VICE News videos here: http://bit.ly/2vutjih 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

Inside the Turkish Newspaper Landing Some Of The Most Explosive Khashoggi Scoops
 
07:11
President Donald Trump's administration has given Saudi Arabia even more time to explain whether it was behind the disappearance of a dissident Saudi journalist. Jamal Khashoggi has been missing since entering Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. A team of 15 Saudi men are suspected of killing him within the consulate, with suggestions Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salam ordered the hit against one of his fiercest critics. On Thursday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, fresh from emergency talks in Riyadh and Ankara, told Trump that the Saudis should be given "a few more days" to investigate what happened to Khashoggi. Later, Trump said he believed Khashoggi is dead. But Sabah — Turkey's most widely-read newspaper— in Istanbul has long since reached that conclusion.

Four Day School Weeks Are The New Normal In Oklahoma (HBO)

One third of all Oklahoma school districts are now operating on a four-day schedule. Oklahoma has cut education funding per student more than any other state over the last 8 years. In the past, Oklahoma has compensated for funding cuts with oil revenue, but oil prices have declined in recent years. “Teachers have been reluctant,” principal Nathan Gray told VICE News correspondent Roberto Ferdman. “You’re now forced to cover all the curriculum, all the testing that’s required by the state, in four days.” In Oklahoma’s Noble school district, all schools are closed on Fridays to save money, one principal oversees two elementary schools to avoid hiring a second administrator, and the district superintendent also works bus duty. Gray says a four-day school week isn’t what anyone wanted, but it was the only way to cope with the cuts. “This was our best way to survive.” 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

MoviePass Is Trying To Save Movie Theaters, But It Needs To Save Itself First (HBO)
 
04:33
Movie theater attendance is the lowest it’s been since 1995. But a company called MoviePass is trying to fix that. Mitch Lowe is the CEO of MoviePass– and as the co-founder of Netflix, he’s partially to blame for movie theaters underperforming. “You know people have got to get out of this cocooning phase and into the experiential, “ says Lowe. A subscription to MoviePass lets you see a movie a day, for ten bucks a month. The math is simple: when MoviePass started in 2011, it cost up to 50 dollars per month, depending on where you lived. At the time, the average price of a movie ticket in the US was about $8 dollars, meaning you’d have to see seven movies a month to get the most out of your subscription. But when the company dropped prices to $10 last August, the price to see one movie evened out to about the same price as the pass itself, and you got to see an unlimited number of movies a month. Not surprisingly– subscriptions jumped from twenty thousand to over three million. But Lowe wants to disrupt your movie-going experience altogether. “The reason we're able to offer you at extraordinarily low price is because we're going to monetize the data to sell you things to create kind of an Open Table for your “night at the movies,” says Lowe, “So we’ll be working with restaurants and bars and build deals...and of course we’ll make a percentage of the revenue that you would spend there.” Despite Lowe’s confidence in the business model, the stock of MoviePass’s parent company, a big data company called Helios and Matheson (HMNY), is tanking to a current low of $00.11 a share. HMNY has unveiled a plan to raise a billion dollars from investors, and do what’s called a reverse stock split, which could temporarily boost the stock price. Shareholders will meet and write MoviePass's next scene–or its ending– on Monday.

Shane Smith met with two of Miami beach’s top real estate brokers, Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber, to find out what’s protecting the market. He also speaks with an insurance expert from Wharton who explains how the city’s public funds come predominantly from real estate taxes — meaning that putting more property at risk is also the very thing helping Miami deal with rising seas.

China's Waste Ban Is Causing A Trash Crisis In The U.S. (HBO)

China imports more recyclable goods than any other country in the world. But earlier this year, China stopped accepting a long list of imported plastic and paper waste, and implemented much stricter guidelines for what it's willing to take in. The dramatic policy change is part of a national campaign to reduce the country’s carbon footprint, but China's decision to no longer be the trash collector for the rest of the world is causing major problems for U.S. waste processing operations. Across the U.S., recyclers had been accustomed to sending major portions of their paper and plastic to China, but now they're scrambling to find other takers. Already, more than a dozen states have started to giving companies waivers to throw out recyclables, including Massachusetts, where more than 4,000 tons of single-stream recyclables and more than 10,000 tons of glass have been sent to landfills. VICE News traveled to Massachusetts to visit a processor that used to have an average of a few dozen one-ton cubes of recyclables sitting around and now has thousands.

Inside The Search For Nearly 1,000 People Missing From The California Wildfire (HBO)

CHICO, California — As the Camp Fire continues to burn, 12 days later, and at 66 percent containment, 77 deaths have been confirmed, and 993 are left unaccounted for. With over 151,000 acres burned, the search for the unaccounted is unprecedented. "We don’t normally have a process to deal with this many unaccounted for individuals," Butte County Sheriff and Coroner Kory Honea told VICE News. But the list has posed several challenges for authorities trying to track everyone down. Issues range from: People not knowing they are on the list, duplicated names due to converged data sets, to even finding remains in all the debris. While the list of unaccounted people represents an imperfect picture of the missing, it does illustrate the large retirement community in the area. Paradise, the city hardest hit by the fires, was known, in part, as a retirement community, a quiet place for people to get away. VICE News spent time with Tammie Konicki, during her search for her missing 64-year-old mother, who was last seen getting into a car the morning of the fire. “Hopefully she is somewhere and just doesn’t have a way to get a hold of us,” Konicki said of her mother. “Right now, for me, no news is good news, because no news means she hasn’t been found dead,” she said. “She’s not one of those bodies as of yet.” 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

New court rulings have declared overcrowded prisons to be unconstitutional, and the sheer cost of incarceration is forcing prisons to let prisoners back out on the streets. VICE News was granted rare access to go inside one of the most maximum-security prisons in the country, a place that's on the frontline of what could be a sea change in prison policy.

Inside The World's Deadliest Pandemics | VICE on HBO
 
11:21
Somewhere in the world, an unknown virus is growing in the bloodstream of an animal, just waiting to jump to the human population. Since the 1980s, outbreaks of infectious diseases have more than tripled worldwide. For example, one million people die each year from mosquito-borne illness. And with rising temperatures and population growth, the death toll will likely grow. To stay ahead of a potentially devastating global pandemic, scientists have come up with new ways to research and learn about diseases. Ron Fouchier, a physician who studies genetic mutations at the Erasmus Medical Center in the Netherlands, genetically modified the H5N1 bird flu virus to become airborne. "So now we can find out exactly what it takes for an animal virus to become airborne," he told VICE News. Fouchier's work originally sent shockwaves through the international community, but global health experts have found that diligent surveillance and research of these diseases is the key to keeping them at bay. "Human beings are only as strong as our weakest surveillance system," Larry Brilliant, a physician who helped eradicate smallpox, told VICE News. As Chairman of the Skoll Global Threat Fund, his work now focuses on using mobile data to track outbreaks. "This is one instance where 'America First' means working with the poorest countries in the world to protect them out of selfishness, our own enlightened self-interest." Uganda, where the Zika virus was first discovered in 1947, already uses a decentralized network of hospitals, laboratories, and motorcycle riders to keep scientists up to date on medical anomalies, which allows them to quickly contain emerging threats. VICE founder Suroosh Alvi went to the Zika Forest and Kampala, Uganda, to see how vulnerable humans are to a new pandemic and the options for staving one off.

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.

Meet The Truck-Driving Mom In A Business With Hardly Any Women | American Jobs (HBO)
 
03:54
Twenty nine-year-old single mom Nicole Strickland has spent a decade supporting herself and her young son on her wages as a truck driver. But as one of just 5.1 percent of female drivers nationwide, she doesn’t have it easy. She recalled the time a manager receiving a shipment offered to take her to dinner and let her use his shower. “You must get so lonely in that truck,” Strickland said the man told her. After she declined, he’d make her wait and unload her trailer last. While a 2016 White House report estimated that automized trucks could replace nearly 1.7 million truck driving jobs, for now, the industry is still growing. In fact, there’s a shortage of workers, especially women, according to the American Trucking Association. VICE News followed Strickland during her night shift on the open road.
