How The World’s Deadliest Pandemics Are Born: VICE on HBO, Full Episode

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.

Remnants Of California Wildfires & ‘Catholicism’s Breitbart’: VICE News Tonight Full Episode (HBO)

October 18, 2017, FULL EPISODE of VICE News Tonight on HBO.

Inside Catholicism’s Breitbart, the site ‘Church Militant,’ as founder Michael Voris is targeting liberal priests

Chinese Communist Party began its 19th Party Congress, bringing 2,300 delegates together. President Xi Jinping is expected to be re-elected as party leader for another five years. VICE News looks at how Gen Secretary of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping, has changed the party and country.

In the California neighborhood of Coffey Park, nearly every house has already burned to the ground. Instead of rows of homes, there’s now a forest of charred chimneys standing in piles of ash. And now that there’s nothing left to burn, recovery workers are beginning the search for anyone who didn’t make it out alive.

Plus, VICE’s Suroosh Alvi tries on a mech suit in South Korea.

We Tested Method 2, A Hulking Robot Straight Out Of Science Fiction (HBO)

VICE founder Suroosh Alvi recently traveled to Gunpo, South Korea, to try out the Method 2 prototype, a hulking manned robot made by Hankook Mirae Technology. Weighing in at over one and a half tons, and standing 13 feet tall, the Method 2 looks like something out of science fiction.

Specifically, this exoskeleton robot looks like something you’ve seen in a movie, and that’s by design: Hankook Mirae Chairman Yang Jin-Ho and his team collaborated with a Hollywood designer to make the Method-2.

Jin-Ho spent $200 million of his own money on the project, and claims his creation is the world’s first manned bipedal robot.

The robot is designed to mimic hand and arm movements, and is suspended by two metal cabals in the ceiling to keep it balanced.

So far the Method-2 is only used for fun, but its creator envisions it will play a critical role in future crises.

“It’s more likely it’ll be used in fires and disaster relief situations,” Jin-Ho said. “But also find application in military operations.”

VICE Founder Suroosh Alvi Investigates Life Under Sharia Law – VICE on HBO

In Aceh, Sharia rules all. In this Indonesian province, hardliners began enforcing Islamic law in the wake of the devastating 2004 tsunami that killed more than 200,000 people, telling the survivors that it was the wrath of God punishing them for their sins. Today, Sharia police roam the streets busting gamblers, drinkers, and adulterers, and sending them off to be publicly caned by “executioners.”

VICE founder Suroosh Alvi travels to Aceh and across Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim country, to experience Sharia up close and investigate its correlation to terrorism, as well as meet those who are fighting back against it.
