Boxing glove autographed by Muhammad Ali in Italy auction | AFP

A rare piece of sporting memorabilia autographed by boxing legend Muhammad Ali, went up fo r auction in Italy. The golden leather glove was produced to promote the iconic ‘Fight of the Century’ between Ali and Joe Frazier on March 8th, 1971 in New York’s Madison Square Garden. During the auction there were no bids meeting the desired 5,000 euro starting price so the glove remained as part of the owner’s collection.

Where Childhood Died: Former Syrian child soldiers and their emotional scars (Documentary Promo)

In areas held by radical Islamists, children were made to witness and even take part in, atrocities. The Syrian Army may have chased the extremists away, but the emotional scars remain. Ali, who started digging tunnels for Jaish Al Islam in Duma when he was eleven, still has nightmares. His little brother, who saw beheadings in the public square, once cut off a doll’s head. Imad, who at thirteen was forced to become a hate-filled soldier and later tortured in prison, has attempted suicide

Yemen’s Other Crisis: Surging Refugee Flows And Human Trafficking (HBO)

Saleh Saeed Nasser has been patrolling Yemen’s coastline for 15 years. For most of his career, he’s seen migrants arrive on the pristine shores of Shabwa province from the Horn of Africa.

But in recent years, as his country’s three-year civil war has brought on terrorism and the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, something counterintuitive has started happening: More migrants from Africa are rushing to shore and overwhelming the coastline he patrols as a member of the country’s Coast Guard. More than 87,000 migrants arrived last year alone.

Now, Saleh says he needs 2,000 men to properly police this stretch of Yemen’s vast coastline. He only has 185.

“The government is busy with bigger issues — resources are scarce,” he said.

Yemen is locked in the middle of a conflict — proxy battle between Iranian-backed Houthis and a Saudi-backed coalition— that has thrown 20 million people into a sprawling humanitarian crisis. Nearly 10,000 people have been killed and 53,000 more wounded in the conflict, according to the United Nations, though many believe the figures are much higher.

Despite this grim reality, African migrants are fleeing crises at home in search of employment and opportunity in Saudi Arabia, and are hoping to pass through Yemen’s war zone to get there. VICE News witnessed hundreds of migrants starting their long walk from the shores of Bi’r Ali in south-east Yemen to the Saudi border.

Former EPA Employees Reveal What Working For Trump’s EPA Was Like (HBO)

Over the past year, more than 700 EPA employees have quit their jobs or taken retirement buyouts. According to Steve Hopkins, who worked at the EPA for 15 years, that’s unprecedented.

Betsy Southerland is one of the EPA employees who left the agency last year. She laments the way Administrator Scott Pruitt and political appointees cut career EPA employees out of major policy decisions.

Environmental regulations are just part of what the EPA does to help communities, says Mustafa Santiago Ali, who quit his job at the agency in March after serving as the head of the EPA’s environmental justice program. Agency employees also build trust with marginalized communities who need help dealing with environmental contamination. “That’s why we need to have a strong EPA. Because when we don’t, we weaken our country,” Ali told VICE News. “We have to address these public health issues and these environmental issues, if we truly want to have our country to be all that it’s supposed to be.”

To find just how the EPA has been doing in Trump and Pruitt’s first year, VICE News gathered around a campfire with four employees who left the agency in 2017, and one current union representative. The result was a frank discussion between former federal employees who worked at the agency for decades — fueled by a marshmallow roast.

Building Saudi Arabia’s First Movie Theatre (HBO)

There are no movie theaters in Saudi but there is strong content being created by Saudis in the underground filmmaking scene. The challenges Saudi artists face, instead of lessening the quality of their work, actually add layers, nuance and creativity to their work and it makes them adept at polite subversion and they know how to challenge the system internally.

VICE News follows Ali Al Kalthami a young Saudi filmmaker as he works on his next project in his hometown of Riyadh for his film company Telfaz11.

We also speak to Shihab Jamjoom, former deputy Minister at the Ministry of Information and owner of a massive Arabic-language cartoon company, Spacetoon about why having Youtube Saudi stars is not enough. He tells us why Saudi needs a real movie industry for people like Ali to prosper.

Bahrain: More Bloodshed

Watch “Bahrain: An Inconvenient Uprising” – http://bit.ly/11uAes9

Earlier this year, VICE News correspondent Ben Anderson traveled to Bahrain undercover to document the ongoing protests there. Bahrainis — inspired by the Arab Spring — have been taking to the streets every night for almost four years, calling for democracy.

One of the people Ben interviewed was Yousif Badah. His son, Ali Badah, was killed while protesting three years ago, when a police SUV repeatedly ran into him, pinning him against a wall.

On the third anniversary of his son’s death, Yousif and others held a vigil for Ali. That vigil turned into a march, and was similarly met with police violence, this time resulting in injury to Yousif himself.

Nu:Logic – All The Things – Official Video

Hospital Shop – https://www.hospitalrecords.com/shop/release/nulogic/nhs231-what-i39ve-always-waited-for/#tracks-NHS231DDS
iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/what-ive-always-waited-for/id608308916?uo=4&at=11l9mP

This is the eighth in a series of videos from the Nu:Logic album “What I’ve Always Waited For”, which is due for release on Hospital Records on March 25th. Working with director Nez Savaşkan we wanted to create visual accompaniments for each of Nu:Logic’s tunes which captured the vibe and feeling of each track. This resulted in a series of fourteen simple vignettes not conforming to the standard conventions you might expect from a promo video.

It’s important to remember these are video edits… If you want the full Nu:Logic audio experience make sure you pre-order your copy of the new album now, here

Nu:Logic is a collaborative partnership between Hospital stalwarts Nu:Tone and Logistics. Individually, the Gresham brothers have released a total of seven long players already on Hospital, each to great critical acclaim. The sum of their combined powers is oozing with the kind of soulful drum + bass, which is the foundation of the Hospital label and will satisfy long term fans who hanker after the golden days of the genre.

Having brought us the Nu:Logic “New Technique” EP in 2010 and the recently released follow up single “Morning Light / Grizzly”, the duo now bring us their highly anticipated debut album “What I’ve Always Waited For”.

Opening with the calm, mellow soothing sounds of “Morning Light” we are taken through a variety of styles across the 14-track album. Vocal-driven cuts are peppered throughout the album and there’s some top collaborations in there, including “Everlasting Days (ft. Lifford)” with its warm, uplifting vibe, the growling spoken swagger of “We Live There (ft. DRS)” and the blissed out “Shoot Me Down (ft. Robert Manos)”.

Elsewhere, don’t miss out on the excellent “Start Again (ft. S.P.Y)” with the raw, bass heavy menacing tones, as well as the meditative title track “What I’ve Always Waited For” which is all whirring atmospherics and pattering drums. Two interludes “Escape Pod” and “Dusk” successfully segment the album into thirds. With so many musical gems to choose from, one thing is for sure – this has been worth waiting for.
