My Life After 44 Years In Prison
 
06:22
Otis Johnson went to jail at the age of 25. When he got out at 69, he rejoined a world that was starkly different from the one he remembered. This is his story. Last year, we met Otis Johnson at a New York City shelter for ex-convicts. Everyone there was trying to get their feet back on the ground. Otis had just got out of prison after serving a 44-year sentence. The last time he had seen his family was May 1975. When we shared Otis's first story of being reintroduced to the modern world, viewers were amazed by just how unfamiliar everything was to him. iPhones, Times Square, jars of pre-mixed peanut butter and jelly ... everything was new or starkly different. INTERACTIVE: My life after 44 years in prison. The story of Otis Johnson His story clearly resonated with people. More than 12 million people watched Otis' story on YouTube, and we wanted to show them what happened next. We went to Asbury Park, in New Jersey, with Otis to try to find them. Reconnecting with family was something he had said he was always interested in doing, but hadn't got round to yet. After all, he was still learning how to navigate the city. He had a small box where he kept old, tattered photos of family members, but that was basically all the information he had on them. "The only address I really have is Asbury Park," Otis told us. So we took the train to Asbury Park not knowing much. But we did have Otis' memory. Once we arrived at the train station and began roaming the streets, small things about his old home slowly came back to him: extended family members, friends, shops. He wanted to find his aunt, Dottie Moore, and some other family members. He said many would probably think he was dead. When we talked to Otis about his relationship with his family, his answers were complicated. He was a member of the Fruit of Islam (the paramilitary wing of Nation of Islam, the Islamic religious movement once famously led by Malcom X) in his younger days. The Nation of Islam's stated goals were to improve the spiritual, mental, social, and economic condition of African Americans. Otis was a devout Muslim who said he helped "clean up the streets" of drug dealers. "We wasn't all bad," he would say. But Otis said some of his family members didn't buy that. He didn't know if they would be angry or happy to see him after all these years away. He had a nervous energy about him as we walked down Pine Street, knocking on doors and asking strangers about Dottie Moore. This final story on Otis Johnson is one of reconnection and reconciliation. It is the story of a man on a quest to reunite with remnants of his past and one, we hope, many can relate to.

The Airbus A321 aircraft of Ural Airlines was carrying 226 passengers and seven crew members from Moscow's Zhukovsky airport to Simferopol in Russia-annexed Crimea, the Rosaviatsia air transport agency said in a statement. "There was an emergency landing in Zhukovsky. Birds got into both engines.

Earthrise - Japan's Future Farms
 
05:04
By 2050, the world will need to feed an additional 2.5 billion people living in cities. Yet as the demand for food rises, the amount of land available for agriculture in developed countries is expected to decline. In Japan, at the Fujitsu factory of Aizu-Wakamatsu which still manufactures semiconductor chips for computers, a different project is underway which may offer a solution to this problem. The company has converted an unused part of the factory into a farm to grow food - and more specifically, to grow lettuce. Fujitsu has focused on growing a low-potassium variety, which is sold to people with kidney problems who cannot process the mineral properly.

🇨🇳 Obesity: China's Big Problem | 101 East
 
24:31
It is sunrise at a camp for teenagers in China. One by one, they file out of their dorms, some still rubbing the sleep from their eyes. As they hurry into formation for morning exercises, former soldiers bark orders at them - jump higher, run faster, squat lower. For these children, there is just one aim - to lose weight. "It will be difficult, it will be exhausting, but I really have no choice," says 15-year-old Dushuai. "I absolutely have to lose weight." Back in the 1960s, China suffered a devastating famine that killed nearly 20 million people. But now, the country faces a new scourge: Obesity. One in five children - and tens of millions of adults - are now overweight or obese. China's rapid economic growth has brought huge lifestyle changes - people now consume more Western-style junk food, laden with fat and sugar, and are more sedentary. Some are beginning to take drastic measures. For children like Dushai, that means spending his holidays at a camp where his days are filled with rigorous exercise, nutrition classes, and carefully crafted meals. From boot camps for overweight teens run by former soldiers, to radical weight loss surgery, many across the nation are trying to get in shape. 101 East explores as China battles the bulge.

🇮🇩 Can disability stop you from being a pro photographer? | AJ Shorts
 
04:11
Dzoel has no hands or legs but doesn't let that get in the way of his love of photography. Achmad Zulkarnain, known as Dzoel by his friends, didn't realise he was different until he was eight years old, when children at school began teasing him about his appearance. "I found a big mirror. That was when I realized I'm different from everyone else," he told Al Jazeera. Eventually, with support from family and friends, he regained enough confidence to go back to class, later graduating from high school and getting a job running an internet cafe. "There was a photography service there. I decided to buy a camera on credit. I learned and learned and learned until I was known as a photographer." Filmed by Al Jazeera's Hassan Ghani.

🇻🇪 From riches to rags: Venezuela's economic crisis | The Big Picture
 
10:15
The Venezuelan people struggle to cope with the toxic effects of hyperinflation, severe debt and chronic food and medicine shortages, as Venezuela - once the wealthiest country in the region - is mired in the worst economic crisis in its history. "Venezuelans today cannot eat. You see people eating from the garbage," says Professor Margarita Lopez Maya, Central University of Venezuela. So how does a country boasting the world's largest oil reserves find itself on the brink of economic ruin? It's the country's very history that sheds light on what has gone so drastically wrong in Venezuela today. When Hugo Chavez was elected president in December 1998, he promised to tackle corruption and poverty. He used Venezuela's rapidly growing oil wealth to set up social programmes, known as the Misiones, with the aim of eradicating poverty and reducing inequality. It was, many claimed, a much-needed intervention in the entrenched disparity between Venezuela's rich and poor. As Chavez strived to transform the nation with what he called 21st century socialism, his populist policies began to take a more radical turn. He nationalised industries and bloated state bureaucracy at great national expense, all funded by high oil prices and unchecked borrowing. Venezuela became saddled with record-high levels of debt. By the time of his death in March 2013, Chavez handed over both the reins of power to his handpicked successor, Nicolas Maduro, as well as the poisoned chalice of an economy about to implode. "Maduro has inherited a legacy of oil dependence at a period when Venezuela has gone bust, and at a time where the oil price has gone bust," says Professor Julia Buxton, author of The Failure of Political Reform in Venezuela, adding that Maduro "has simply not addressed any of the problems or the legacy that he inherited from President Chavez." "The collapse of economic activity makes this period, from 2013 onwards, the largest recession in Western Hemisphere history - significantly larger, almost twice as large as the Great Depression of the US," says Ricardo Hausmann, former Venezuelan minister for planning. The IMF predicts that in 2018, the Venezuelan economy will contract by 15 percent, and inflation will reach 13,000 percent. But will those now tasked with governing a struggling nation learn any lessons from its troubled past? - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Blackwater's Erik Prince: Iraq, privatising wars, and Trump | Head to Head
 
49:09
In this episode of Head to Head, Mehdi Hasan challenges Erik Prince, the founder and former CEO of Blackwater, on his security firm’s performance during the Iraq w ar, the “exit strategy” he’s proposing for the w ar in Afghanistan, and his support for US President Donald Trump. During the early years of the Bush administration’s so-called ‘War on Terror’, Blackwater grew into one of the most profitable private military contractors in the US. Over the years, it received over a billion dollars’ worth of government contracts to provide security to top US officials, train members of the Iraqi army and police, and support the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Department of Defense’s counternarcotics programme in Afghanistan. But following the 2007 Nisour Square incident where Blackwater employees shot and killed 14 unarmed Iraqi civilians at a traffic circle, the firm and its founder shot to international notoriety, highlighting the clear dangers of using armed military contractors on the battlefield. Prince, a former US Navy SEAL, has since been channeling his efforts to train security personnel abroad, including most recently in China, where he launched the Hong Kong-based Frontier Services Group, a security and logistics company. He’s also offered a proposal to end the costly, ongoing US-led war in Afghanistan – the longest in US history – by privatising the bulk of it: replacing thousands of US troops with private contractors and sending NATO forces home. But is he really the man to bring peace to the war-torn country? In front of the Oxford Union audience, we challenge Prince on the record of his private contractors in the Iraq w ar and ask him to explain how his controversial plan for the conflict in Afghanistan would bring it to an end. We’ll also ask Prince, who previously served as an informal advisor to President Trump and has been interviewed by both the US House Intelligence Committee and Special Counsel Robert Mueller, about his ties to the current administration. We are joined by a panel of three experts: Sean McFate, a former private military contractor, former officer in the US army, and author of the book, The New Rules of War. Ghaith Abdul-Ahad, an award-winning Guardian journalist from Iraq who’s covered conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and beyond. Tim Collins, a former commander in the British Army and co-founder of the private military consulting company, New Century.

🇮🇸 Turning CO2 into stone in Iceland - earthrise
 
10:34
One hundred percent of Iceland's electricity needs are generated from renewable sources, including geothermal energy. With the aim of cutting emissions even further, a unique carbon capture system called CarbFix is being pioneered at the Hellsheidi geothermal power plant in western Iceland. Carbon dioxide emissions are captured, mixed with water and injected into the ground. Through this process, the CO2 is transformed into a mineral called calcite within just six months. This solid form of CO2 storage is seen as one of the most effective ways of preventing the gas from entering the atmosphere. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Plastic Surgery: The Cost of Beauty | 101 East
 
25:16
Seoul, South Korea's capital, is at the heart of a growing obsession to look perfect. In the Apgujeong district of Seoul, the streets are lined with endless rows of plastic surgery clinics. Business is booming. In South Korea, v-shaped jaws, double eyelids and dimpled smiles are all the rage and people from across the nation, and the world, are flocking to the clinics for plastic surgery, supporting an industry worth $5bn a year. More than 4,000 clinics provide cosmetic surgery in Seoul, with an estimated 650,000 people a year going under the knife. But the surgeries performed by some of the clinics do not always live up to patients' expectations and the quest for beauty and profits is putting lives at risk. So Yi Yoon has suffered many medical problems since having plastic surgery, including not being able to close one of her eyes. She now works two jobs to pay off her debts and is suffering from depression. On this edition of 101 East, we look at what is driving the growth of this booming business and at what price to individuals and the wider Korean society? 101 East delves into Korea's plastic surgery craze and uncovers the real price of pursuing physical perfection.

Going incognito with VPNs in the age of surveillance | The Listening Post (Feature)
 
09:58
Virtual Private Networks first came into use in 1996 and are among the most enduring innovations in online browsing with popularity on the rise around the world. VPNs were originally developed as tools for corporations and governments to connect their offices in different countries, to make it easier for people to work together. But as surveillance and control of the web have increased, a market has emerged and expanded - for people to work around internet blocks and to hide their location online. Particularly popular in countries with authoritarian tendencies, such as Iran, China and Turkey, VPNs are now getting downloaded in more countries like Sri Lanka, across the Gulf, as well as the United States, as data theft, online tracking and web blocking grow increasingly common. "During the protests in Sudan, the authorities issued an internet shutdown and a lot of people were using VPNs to circumvent this censorship," Melody Patry, advocacy director for Access Now, tells Al Jazeera. "It really enabled thousands and thousands of people to have access to social media to share pictures, videos to communicate between each other but also with the world about what was going on in the country." Beyond the use of VPNs by activists and journalists keen to spread information outside of a country, the networks also enable users to pursue a diverse array of interests and even to flout the law. "You'll have more ordinary users who just want to watch pornography or sports. And people do that all the time," Joseph Cox, cybersecurity journalist with Vice, points out. "I don't know if it's a legitimate use for VPNs - obviously some will skirt legality - but people use VPNs for all different sorts of reasons." Over the last few years, the number of VPN services has boomed. Nord VPN, Hotspot Shield, ExpressVPN, Tunnel Bear and CyberGhost are just a few of the most popular names on the market. According to Harold Li, vice-president of Express VPN, VPNs used to be challenging to set up but now it is just a matter of downloading an app. He argues privacy and security are not luxuries now, so "VPNs are no more luxury than having a door a lock on your front door". Countries like Indonesia and Turkey rack up some of the highest numbers of software downloads. But the jump in usage of VPNs has not gone unnoticed by authorities. In countries like Belarus, Iran, Oman and Russia for instance, VPNs are subject to heavy restrictions and there are even some laws in place banning them. Yaman Akdeniz, associate professor at the Istanbul Bilgi University, notes that VPN usage in Turkey is not criminalised but recently the country amended its internet law permitting authorities to request access blocking VPN services. "Several of these well-known VPN services are inaccessible from Turkey and if you manage to access their websites and have an account with them, then they don't work," he says. In China, authorities aren't just blocking foreign VPN services, they have also been pushing the use of state-approved and locally-created VPNs that guarantee neither privacy nor anonymity - leaving many people exposed. "When it comes to government and state blocks, that is something that we've been seeing all around the world for the past decade," says Li. "And we expect that will only continue to increase."

Noam Chomsky on Clinton vs Sanders | UpFront

Renowned political theorist Noam Chomsky is often cited for his criticism of the US political system. In the second of a special two-part interview, Chomsky sits down with Mehdi Hasan to discuss the US presidential election and the rise of Islamophobia. The US academic says Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has the "best policies", but little chance of winning in a "mainly bought" election. When asked if he would vote for presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton if he lived in a swing state, Chomsky says: "Oh absolutely... my vote would be against the Republican candidate."

Dawkins on religion: Is religion good or evil? | Head to Head
 
47:51
With the headlines covering fanaticism, fundamentalism, superstition and ignorance, religion is getting a bad press these days. And much of the conflict in the world, from the Middle East to Nigeria and Myanmar, is often blamed on religion. But how are things from a different perspective? Some defenders of religion claim Adolf Hitler was an atheist. Communism under Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot or Mao Zedong banned religion, but also massacred millions. And science brought incredible and amazing advances, but also pollution and the atomic bomb. A critic of religious dogmatism, Professor Richard Dawkins revolutionised genetics in 1976 with the publication of The Selfish Gene. He has since written 12 more bestsellers, including The God Delusion which sold millions of copies, was translated into more than 30 languages, and catapulted him to the position of the world's foremost atheist. Mehdi Hasan challenges evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins at the Oxford Union in front of a varied and lively audience. In a frank and at times heated exchange, they discuss: Is religion a force for good or evil? Can it co-exist with science? Is science the new religion? And why if god does not exist, is religion so persistent?

🇭🇰 Hong Kong's Missing Booksellers | 101 East
 
26:01
Since October last year, five men linked to a Hong Kong bookstore have disappeared one after another. China-born Swedish national Gui Minhai was allegedly taken from Thailand. Lui Por, Cheung Chi Ping and Lam Wing Kee disappeared in mainland China, and British citizen Lee Bo was last seen at his Hong Kong warehouse. The bookstore in question deals in publications critical of Chinese leaders, and before his disappearance, Gui was apparently preparing to publish a new book. Could this be the reason why he went missing? All five men have since resurfaced in mainland China. But how did they get there? Outraged Hong Kongers and the international community are demanding answers.

China's rare earth monopoly
 
03:41
Rare earth metals are a collection of 17 chemical elements that are key to the production of a long list of modern-day technologies. Despite their name, the elements are relatively plentiful in the earth's crust. However, because of their geochemical properties, the elements are not often found in concentrated forms that are economically viable to extract. Mining them is not only complex but costly, so many countries are cautious. China produces more than 95 per cent of the elements for the world's technology industry. The rest is supplied by the US, Estonia, India, Malaysia and Brazil. That may change, however, as demand for rare-earth metals rises for use in products such as smartphones, electric and hybrid cars, common computer monitors and televisions. Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan, reporting from Baotou in China, examines the importance of these elements.

Gaza Killings: Who is to blame? | Head to Head
 
49:28
In this episode of Head to Head, Mehdi Hasan challenges Danny Ayalon on whether Israel is responsible for the recent killings of Palestinians following months of protests along the Gaza fence. Formerly a deputy foreign minister to Israel and ambassador to the United States, Ayalon has been a key player and trusted adviser in Israel's foreign policy for more than two decades. He has been a political adviser to three prime ministers - Ariel Sharon, Ehud Barak and, most recently, Bejamin Netanyahu. As the region marks the 70th anniversary of the creation of the state of Israel, which led to the expulsion of 750,000 Palestinians in what is referred to as the "Nakba" or "catastrophe", we challenge him on whether Israel's shooting of Palestinian protesters is moral or legal. We also examine whether Iran is more or less of a threat since the US withdrew from the nuclear deal and if Netanyahu is undermining Israel's democracy by attempting to curtail civil rights and pushing the country to the far right. We are joined by a panel of three experts: Avi Shlaim, renowned Israeli-British historian and emeritus professor at Oxford University. Paul Charney, chairman of the UK Zionist Federation. Diana Buttu, Israeli-Palestinian lawyer and former adviser to the Palestinian Liberation Organisation. Editor's note: Since the recording of this programme, an investigation by Israeli human rights organisation B'Tselem concluded that Israeli security forces "deliberately killed" Palestinian paramedic Razan al-Najjar at a protest along the Gaza fence. The episode was also recorded just before Knesset passed the controversial "Jewish nation-state" law on July 19. Gaza Killings: Who is to blame? with Danny Ayalon will be broadcast on July 20 at 20:00 GMT and will be repeated on July 21 at 12:00 GMT, July 22 at 01:00 GMT and July 22 at 06:00 GMT.

Plundering Cambodia's Forests | 101 East
 
26:01
Cambodia has witnessed some of the most rapid deforestations in the world over the past decade. But a brave local activist is desperately trying to save some of the country's last remaining forests. Leng Ouch has infiltrated logging syndicates across the country and recorded reams of damning evidence using hidden cameras, drones, GPS trackers and informants. His data indicates an environmental apocalypse carried out by powerful syndicates who seem to operate with near-total impunity on a national scale. Leng has repeatedly tracked huge convoys of trucks packed with timber, driving straight out of protected areas and across the border into Vietnam, through a network of easily found illegal crossings. He has presented his evidence to the government but the timber trucks continue to flow out of protected forests right before his eyes. Leng is furious that despite his evidence, the EU has struck a deal with Vietnam that will allow it to certify its own timber exports to Europe. On the other side of the country, in the Cardamom Mountains, conservation group Wildlife Alliance is fighting to protect one of Cambodia's few remaining forests. Its rangers have confiscated thousands of chainsaws and helped prosecute offenders caught logging in the protected zone. But the group fears it is only able to protect a fraction of the country's shrinking forests. 101 East investigates the wholesale destruction of some of the most precious forests left on the Indochina peninsula. #Cambodia #Environment #Forest #Logging More from 101 East on: YouTube - http://aje.io/101eastYouTube Facebook - http://facebook.com/101east Twitter - http://twitter.com/aj101east Instagram - http://instagram.com/aj101east Website - http://aljazeera.com/101east

Turkey accuses US of delaying set up of safe zone in Syria

The NATO allies will resume talks soon in an effort to reach an agreement, but divisions between them run deep.

Japan's Stalking Crisis | 101 East
 
25:48
It is a fear that haunts the lives of too many Japanese women; a silent epidemic with consequences that can be fatal: Japan is suffering a wave of violent male stalkers. And some victims are speaking out. Reports of stalking have increased ten-fold in the past decade, with more than 21,000 reported cases last year. But experts warn that this could be just the tip of the iceberg. Rates of stalking are growing faster in Japan than in any other nation. When a stalker murdered a woman in 2011, Japan's anti-stalking law was toughened. But the killings continue. 'Hiro' began stalking his wife when she fled their home and his violent, controlling ways. He tells 101 East that he planned to kill his wife in divorce court because he believed it would be better for her to die than to be with another man. Like Hiro, Japan's stalkers are often jilted lovers seeking revenge on former partners who they feel have wronged them or tried to leave them. It is not easy to find victims and perpetrators willing to talk about stalking. But through support groups, we enter a world that remains hidden in the shadows of Japanese society, often at a shocking cost. We speak to stalking victims who detail the terrifying experience of being continually threatened and harassed. We also hear from the brother of a woman who was killed by her stalker. He wants to draw attention to the dangers of stalking and says tougher laws are needed to protect women. Therapists working with both victims and perpetrators say that much of the crisis is rooted in Japanese society. They say many Japanese men believe that they "own" women. They also claim that the police often fail to act to stop violent attacks. Japan's leading criminal psychologist on stalking is calling for therapy to be made compulsory for any stalker with a criminal conviction. 101 East travels to Japan to explore the fear stalking numerous women across the country, and to hear from the men behind this insidious crime.
