Doom Boom & Unfair | VICE on HBO (Trailer)

Throughout human history, doomsayers — people predicting the end of the world — have lived largely on the fringes of society. Today, a doomsday industry is booming thanks to TV shows, movies, hyper-partisan politics, and the news media. With the country’s collective anxiety on the rise, even the nation’s wealthiest people are jumping on board, spending millions of dollars on survival readiness in preparation for unknown calamities. We sent Thomas Morton to see how people across the country are planning to weather the coming storm.

India is home to Bollywood, the world’s most prolific movie industry. For those who dream of stardom, landing a leading role may depend on the color of your skin. India’s preference for fair skin has given rise to a skin-lightening industry worth nearly $500 million dollars. Gianna Toboni heads to Mumbai to find out how this cultural bias is fueling the booming business of fairer skin.

See it on #VICEonHBO this Friday at 7:30 PM and 11 PM EDT on HBO.

Brainhackers & Fall Of Rio (Trailer) | VICE on HBO

Advancements in neurotechnology are blurring the line between biology and technology. There is an emerging push to implant electronic devices inside the human body, hardwire them to our brains, and allow us to not only overcome disadvantages or injury, but open up entirely new avenues of human experience. VICE News’ Thomas Morton gets an inside look at what might be the next evolutionary step for humankind. Then…

“Pacification” in Rio, carried out ahead of the 2012 World Cup and 2016 Olympics, was meant to spread the affluence and security of the city’s wealthy, mostly white neighborhoods to the poor, mostly black favelas. But with those events gone, Brazil is in a financial crisis, its government consumed with a monumental corruption scandal and violence is rising again as drug trafficking gangs fight for control. VICE News’ Ben Anderson returns to Rio to see what happened.

See it Friday 9/21 at 7:30 PM and 11 PM on HBO.

The Worst Fish in America: Asian Carpocalypse

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

VICE News correspondent Thomas Morton investigates Asian carp — a slimy, ugly, and often gargantuan species of fish that has taken over many waterways in the United States.

First introduced in the US in the 1960s to control weeds and parasites at aquatic farms in Arkansas, the bottom feeders eventually escaped and made their way through the Mississippi River system, eating almost everything in their path and severely damaging ecosystems across the Midwest. Today, government officials are concerned that the fish will invade the Great Lakes, destroy more ecosystems, wreak havoc on the region’s multibillion dollar fishing industry, and spread to almost every major waterway in the Northeast.

VICE News traveled across Illinois to see how people are dealing with the Asian carp invasion, visiting the Redneck Fishing Tournament — where the sole mission is to catch as many carp as possible — touring a processing plant trying to monetize the fish, and then heading to Chicago, where we learned that Asian carp are a symptom of a much larger issue.

The Sloths That Could Cure Cancer: Bio-Prospecting in Panama

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

VICE News host Thomas Morton swings from the trees with an international team of scientists in Panama that’s found a promising treatment for malaria, Chagas disease and breast cancer in the most unlikely place: The mossy fur of tree sloths. It’s yet another reason to not cut down rainforests. About half of all drugs brought to market from 1997-2006 came from plants, fungi and bacteria discovered by “bio-prospectors” in nature. And we see that sloths are just one of many new and unusual frontiers for this research.
