Why ramen is so valuable in prison
Instant ramen noodles have become like cash among inmates in the US.

And that means everything from tuna to stamps to cigarettes have their own unique value in a trade and barter market. But ramen has quickly taken over as the most in demand products the prison system offers. Watch this video to see how ramen took over prison economies and why it’s the default item for trade among inmates. The Goods by Vox explains what we buy, why we buy it, and why it matters.

Inside Hong Kong’s cage homes

When houses are the size of parking spaces. Follow Johnny on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/johnnywharris/ Follow the Vox Borders watch page: https://www.facebook.com/VoxBorders/ Sign up for the Borders newsletter: http://www.vox.com/borders-email With original music by Tom Fox: https://m.soundcloud.com/user-416166523 Hong Kong is the most expensive housing market in the world. It has been ranked as the least affordable housing market on Earth for eight years in a row, and the price per square foot seems to be only going up. The inflated prices are forcing Hongkongers to squeeze into unconventionally small spaces that can affect their quality of life. Tens of thousands of Hongkongers are living in spaces that range from 75 to 140 square feet. To put that in perspective, the average parking space in the US is about 150 square feet. And in the most extreme cases, Hongkongers have resorted to homes the size of a coffin. I spent some time exploring the living situation in Hong Kong to find out why housing has become so expensive and spaces so tight. To understand how Hong Kong’s housing market turned out this way and see how it’s affecting people’s lives, watch the final episode of Borders Hong Kong.

The fact that a taxi driver can make so much more than a physician is a reflection of the Cuban government’s heavy focus on tourism. For years, the central planning apparatus has valued tourism as a key mechanism for both bringing in revenue as well as propagating the idea that Cuba is thriving. Many pesos are collected by the high prices on everything related to the tourism industry.

Why no aquarium has a great white shark

887 Views 253 Comments

Many have tried to keep a white shark in captivity. Here's why that's so difficult. There are several aquariums around the world, including one in Georgia, that house whale sharks, the biggest fish in the sea. But not one has a great white shark on display. Aquariums have made dozens of attempts since the 1970s to display a captive great white shark. Most of those attempts ended with dead sharks. By the 2000s, the only group still trying was the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which spent a decade planning its white shark program. In 2004, it acquired a shark that became the first great white to survive in captivity for more than 16 days. In fact, it was on display for more than six months before it was released back into the ocean. In the following years, the Monterey Bay Aquarium hosted five more juvenile white sharks for temporary stays before ending the program in 2011. It was an expensive effort and had come under criticism due to injuries that some of the sharks developed in the tank. Responding to those critics, Jon Hoech, the aquarium's director of husbandry operations, said: "We believe strongly that putting people face to face with live animals like this is very significant in inspiring ocean conservation and connecting people to the ocean environment. We feel like white sharks face a significant threats out in the wild and our ability to bring awareness to that is significant in terms of encouraging people to become ocean stewards." Check out the video above to learn why white sharks are so difficult to keep in captivity and how the Monterey Bay Aquarium designed a program that could keep them alive.

Venezuela crisis: Where families buy rotten meat to eat - BBC News

181 Views 697 Comments

Millions of Venezuelans have left the country in the last two years, fleeing the oil-rich nation’s economic collapse. Shortages of food and basic goods, years of recession, soaring inflation and regular power shortages have left the country almost on its knees. The government says those against the socialist President Nicolas Maduro are waging an "economic war" – but many within and outside the country blame his policies, combined with corruption and mismanagement. One of the most affected areas is the state of Zulia, long known as the centre of the country's oil industry. The BBC’s Vladimir Hernandez is one of the few international journalists who has been able to report from the state. Produced by Herminia Fernandez, filmed by Omar Garcia. Edited by Kelvin Brown.

Inside a Spy Tech Expo

This is an Extra Scene From 'Britain's Secret Surveillance‘ IMSI catchers are portable surveillance tools used for spying on thousands of phones in a targeted area, tracking their location and even intercepting calls, messages, and data. They are supposed to help identify serious criminals, but cannot operate without monitoring innocent people too. UK police have IMSI catchers, but they refuse to tell the public how and when they are used. This has privacy campaigners worried. And, even if the state is using them sparingly, what if criminals also have access to the technology? In this extra scene from 'Britain's Secret Surveillance,' VICE News visits Milipol, a homeland security fair in Paris, to reveal the latest hacking tools and state surveillance tech — and gets knifed in a stab vest.

The rise and fall of the American fallout shelter

311 Views 750 Comments

Whatever happened to fallout shelters? And would they have actually worked? Watch Duck and Cover with us: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUcQ7hESI-M Phil Edwards on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/philedwardsinc1/ In this episode of Vox Almanac, Vox's Phil Edwards looks at the history behind one of the Cold War's more unusual legacies — the fallout shelter. Of course, any history of the fallout shelter has to include nuclear proliferation, civil defense, Presidential politics, and a turtle named Bert. The video above serves as a condensed history of the Cold War’s fallout shelter fad, from the kookily cheerful propaganda videos to the hobbled Federal agencies that tried to administer Civil Defense. Yes, it includes the classic Cold War film Duck and Cover, in which a bomb-fearing turtle named Bert teaches kids that hiding under their desks could be sufficient protection from nuclear annihilation. Any history of fallout shelter culture (and Cold War propaganda) becomes an indirect history of Cold War nuclear escalation, from Hiroshima-sized bombs to hydrogen behemoths. As the nuclear threat increased in magnitude, the absurdity of civil defense amped up simultaneously. This video (and a day spend trawling the Internet Archive for darkly humorous videos) provides a more intimate portrait of Cold War paranoia as it was lived. Paired with Kenneth Rose’s comprehensive book about fallout shelter culture, it’s a look at daily life with the bomb — even when that daily life included the occasional jaunt to a thick-walled concrete bunker a few feet underground.

Why monks had that haircut

There was a lot of thought behind the style — and controversy. Become a member of the Vox Video Lab! http://bit.ly/video-lab Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO What was the deal with that monk haircut? In this episode of Vox Almanac, Phil Edwards explores the history and controversy behind the style. Known as "tonsure," the typical monk hairstyle has many variations throughout religions. The particular hairstyle worn by Christian monks has its own variations and controversies as well. Three different types of tonsure were popular: a coronal tonsure, a Pauline tonsure, and a third Celtic tonsure that came to represent the differences between the Roman Catholic and Celtic Catholic church. The winding path of this tonsure is a new way to look at the division within the religion and the unpredictable ways something like hair can represent faith.

This Underwater Drone Operator Inspected Chicago's Trump Tower (HBO)

270 Views 18 Comments

The Chicago river isn’t known for its fish — quite the opposite. It was once a dumping ground for everything from industrial waste in the early 20th century, to 800 pounds of human waste from Dave Matthews’ tour bus in 2004. But, thanks to cleanup efforts, there are fish in the river. And now, they’re at the center of a lawsuit that pits the state of Illinois against the Trump Organization. The lawsuit, filed in August, involves Chicago’s Trump Tower. For years now, the building has been taking in close to 20 million gallons of Chicago river water each day to cool its air conditioning system. While the practice itself isn’t unusual, environmental groups say the quantity of water the tower takes in, and then releases, is far larger than most buildings of similar size along the river. Moreover, the Trump Organization hasn’t performed the environmental assessments required under the Clean Water Act — assessments aimed at showing that the tower’s water intakes aren’t affecting local wildlife. “We've stocked almost 300,000 native Illinois fish in this system, so if you're pulling that water in faster than our fish can swim, those fish can get killed in that system,” says John Quail, Director of Watershed Planning at Friends of the Chicago River, one of the environmental groups involved in the state’s lawsuit. “So that's one big concern of ours.” The Trump Organization didn’t respond to multiple requests for comment. But shortly after the lawsuit was filed, it told reporters that it was “disappointed that the Illinois attorney general would choose to file this suit,” adding that “one can only conclude that this decision was motivated by politics." That analysis doesn't square with the facts of the case, says Mark Templeton, a law professor at the University of Chicago and one of the lead attorneys overseeing the lawsuit. “They’re the second largest withdrawer of water from the Chicago River, and they are the only one of the top 15 who are not complying with the law,” he told VICE News. “So they can call it politically motivated if they want to, but it is environmentally motivated.” To get a better look at the issue at hand, VICE News took a boat to Chicago’s Trump tower and used an underwater drone — at least, until the cops showed up.

Why the Victorian mansion is a horror icon

269 Views 299 Comments

The Gilded Age left a legacy of decay on the American landscape. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Haunted houses are often depicted with similar features: decaying woodwork, steep angles, and Gothic-looking towers and turrets. The model for this trope is the Victorian mansion, once a symbol of affluence and taste during the Gilded Age - a period of American history marked by political corruption and severe income inequality. After World War I, these houses were seen as extravagant and antiquated, and were abandoned. Their sinister relationship to the troubling end of the Victorian Era in America eventually led to their depiction as haunted and ghostly in both fine art and pop culture, and is now an unspoken symbol of dread.

Why truffles can cost $2,500 per pound

570 Views 557 Comments

Truffles are the most expensive fungi you can eat. Truffles are the fruiting body of an ectomycorrhizal fungus and the one of most expensive things you can eat. Italian white truffles are renowned for their pungent smell and earthy taste. In general, truffles play by their own rules. Truffle sniffing dogs are needed to find the fungus. And cultivation has been difficult with black truffles and hasn't happened at all with white truffles. It's a journey filled with hunting, counterfeiting, and occasional night time heists to get truffles from the ground to being shaved over your pizza.
