๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ My Life After 44 Years In Prison | AJ Shorts
 
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.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ 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.

๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต 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. Join Rachel Mealey in Japan's Fukushima Prefecture to visit the sun-free and soil-free urban farms of the future.

๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ช 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/

White farmers thrive in Zambia years after driven from Zimbabwe
 
02:30
One of former President Robert Mugabeโ€™s most controversial policies was the land reform programme of 2000 which made it legal for black Zimbabweans to seize properties from white farmers - without compensation. The policy was meant to consolidate his support but resulted in thousands of white commercial farmers being driven off the land. They sought safety in neighbouring countries such as Zambia, where their skill and experience has had positive results.

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท 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.

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ Cambodia's Election Crackdown | 101 East
 
25:51
In late July, Cambodians will go to the polls for what critics say is a sham election. Having dissolved the main opposition party and closed down media outlets critical of the government, the worldโ€™s longest serving Prime Minister Hun Sen stands accused of using violence and intimidation to silence dissent. The crackdown has extended to those who dared to critically report on the countryโ€™s politics. Newspapers have been forced to close after they were issued massive tax bills.Cambodiaโ€™s head of taxation, Vibol Kong, denies accusations that the tax bills were designed to silence critical reporting. Vibol Kong, a member of the ruling partyโ€™s elite central committee, insists that the media organisations were trying to avoid paying tax.But 101 Eastโ€™s analysis of company records in both Cambodia and Australia shows that Vibol Kong himself hasquestions to answer. The documentary also puts the spotlight on alleged criminal activities carried out by other members of Cambodiaโ€™s ruling elite in Australia. As human rights activists warn that Cambodia is teetering on the edge of total dictatorship, this exclusive 101 East investigation into alleged corruption among the countryโ€™ ruling elite comes at a critical time in the countryโ€™s history.

Some of Iran's biggest oil customers appear to be succumbing to US pressure to curb imports from Tehran. After withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear deal and imposing sanctions on Iran, Donald Trump started urging countries that import oil from Iran to find alternate suppliers. Iran says it won't bow to US pressure - and is threatening to block the Strait of Hormuz.

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."

South Korea has built its success on a population driven to excel and willing to conform - for the good of their society. The country has seen the fastest economic development of anywhere in the world, becoming synonymous with a highly educated workforce, cutting edge technology, and large powerful conglomerates. But it's come at the cost of a stressful competitive society - with relentless working hours and a pressure to succeed. Now, a new generation of South Koreans is saying enough is enough. They are voting for a more liberal and kinder lifestyle with their feet - leaving the country in droves.

๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ Hacked: The Bangladesh Bank Heist | 101 East
 
26:01
It was a daring raid. Tens of millions of dollars stolen from Bangladesh's central bank via the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, transferred to accounts in the Philippines and then laundered through the Philippine casino system. The money, and the thieves, then vanished. And it was all done online. In this comprehensive investigation spanning several countries, 101 East examines one of the biggest bank robberies in modern times, to find out how cyber-hackers infiltrated the global banking system, and got away with it. The crime stunned the then-governor of Bangladesh Bank, Atiur Rahman. "It was like a terrorist attack, into the central bank," he says. "I couldn't believe it ... because nothing like that ... ever happened." The robbery prompted investigations in the Philippines, Bangladesh and by the FBI. It revealed weaknesses in the supposedly secure global money transfer system known as SWIFT, which banks use to move billions of dollars daily between themselves. The heist also exposed the murky banking system of the Philippines, where some of the world's toughest bank secrecy laws make the country vulnerable to potential corruption and money laundering. And it drew attention to the country's casinos, which are exempt from anti-money laundering laws, and not required to report suspicious transactions. 101 East exposes how cyber-hackers got away with one of the biggest bank thefts in history, robbing Bangladesh's central bank of more than $80m. - 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: https://www.aljazeera.com/

๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท South Korea: Suicide nation | People & Power
 
25:01
Loneliness, poverty, chronic illness, losing one's job, the death of a loved one or the breakdown of a marriage - there are many reasons why people fall prey to heartbreak and despair, but most of us, thankfully, will find a route out of that unhappiness or at least develop ways of dealing with it. Even for those who can not, whose sadness turns into the 'black dog' of overwhelming clinical depression, the right help can still make a crucial difference to being able to cope - be it medical care, the understanding of therapists or the love and support of family and friends. Eventually some sort of recovery takes place, some balance and perspective is restored. Yet for some the experience of depression can be so profound that none of this works, that all remedies and assistance seem valueless and there appears to be only one way out - to end it all and takes one's own life. Such a step is, of course, a mark of absolute and final desperation, a tragic, wasteful act that can often be cruelly devastating for the people left behind. But people still do it, many thousands around the world every year; lost souls whose mental health has been damaged and stretched beyond breaking point. Curiously though, some societies and cultures seem more prone to suicide than others. Take South Korea, for example, where suicide has become the fourth most common cause of death, with up to 40 of its citizens taking their own lives every day. For the last eight years it has had the highest suicide rates in the industrialised world (and the second highest in the whole world behind Guyana) and it is now, astonishingly the number one cause of death for its citizens between the ages of 10 and 30. Delve a little deeper into these statistics (gathered as the nation has become more concerned about the phenomenon) and you will find that men commit suicide twice as often as women; that children and young adults will cite the stress of living in a hyper-competitive society or pressure over exam results and college entrance as the main reason for contemplating suicide; that middle-aged South Koreans most often turn to it through concern over personal economic problems; and that the elderly will kill themselves (or consider doing so) because of isolation as a result of the breakdown of the traditional family unit. Each of these facts and figures, so easy to write out, conceals a sad personal story, a life that has somehow lost its purpose and meaning or an unbearable anguish that has been crying out for relief. And they still do not explain why South Koreans are more susceptible to suicide than, let's say, the people of Namibia or Iceland. This film from Veronique Mauduy sets out to investigate that question and to find out what South Korea is doing to bring its most vulnerable people back from the edge.

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?

Dragging trolleys laden with waste, they sell whatever they can collect for just a few dollars. Hong Kong is home to 64 billionaires and has the highest number of Rolls-Royces per capita in the world. But one in three elderly people lives in poverty - one of the highest senior poverty rates in the developed world. And with a rapidly ageing population, Hong Kong could soon face a "silver tsunami". 101 East asks why so many elderly residents are struggling to survive in one of the world's richest cities.

As the country's population rapidly declines, it's funding matchmaking events to help encourage marriage - and babies. Such events are also being embraced by reality shows, small towns and even monks who need a partner for their temple to survive. 101 East asks, can love find a way in desperate and dateless Japan?
