The Secret International Cyber War Dividing Nations

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-11-18

Hacked! (2013): Inside the new cyber Cold War

In an unprecedented international cyber war, nation states are spying on, stealing from and attacking each other. This film uniquely gets under the skin of this secretive and costly new battle ground.

“I’m not going to comment on individual cases” the Australian Attorney General says, snapping back at every question. It’s a reaction to be expected when the plans for your top secret security headquarters have been stolen and are sitting on a server in China. “Once you get building plans you can start constructing your own wiring diagrams…seeing how to surreptitiously put devices in”, a security expert explains. So did the Chinese government mount a brazen hack into Australia’s most sensitive secrets? The Australians are certainly reluctant to discuss it.”If you identify vulnerabilities, then less sophisticated hackers can start to find those weaknesses.” And now it’s not just in intelligence that the cyber war poses a real threat, but also in combat where nations are looking for tactical advantages. Professor Des Ball believes that these kind of cyber attacks form a key part of China’s strategy for national defence, as they build up a cyber team of thousands in the place of conventional forces. “Make those American electronic platforms blind, deaf and dumb. It’s the only way that those relatively primitive Chinese capabilities would have any hope against American carrier battle groups.” As tensions around cyber security and privacy rise ever higher, the deafening silence surrounding these ‘break-ins’ is becoming increasingly uncomfortable. Are the first shots in the wars to come now being fired digitally?

You Don’t Know Shit: VICE Reports (Part 1/3)”

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-11-13

VICE

Every day, America must find a place to park 5 billion gallons of human waste, and we’re increasingly unable to find the space. We wake up in the morning, brush our teeth, and flush the toilet, thinking that the waste water disappears into the center of the Earth. If only that were the case.

Every morning between 8 AM and 9 AM, the waste output of Manhattan’s West Side swells from 70 million to 150 million gallons per day. This is known as “the big flush.” The sewage will eventually end up on a NYC Department of Environmental Protection Sewage boat, which will take the sludge to a dewatering plant on Ward’s Island, where the sludge will become “biosolids”—reused to create golf courses, cemeteries, and fertilizer for the human food chain.

From Rehab to a Body Bag | Dying for Treatment

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-11-12

VICE

In the United States, more people between the ages of 25 and 64 die of complications from drugs than car crashes. According to a 2009 study published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 23.5 million people in this country over the age of 12 need treatment for drug and alcohol abuse, and only 2.6 million of these afflicted individuals actually receive it. In response, drug and alcohol rehab has blossomed in the past three decades into a $35 billion industry with nearly 15,000 facilities across the country. Although non-hospital residential treatment serves only about 10 percent of those in recovery in the US, the exorbitant cost of such care–as high as $75,000 a month–has made it extremely lucrative. And thanks to popular TV shows like Celebrity Rehab, which have installed the luxurious rehabilitation center in the popular consciousness, the national enrollment figures keep growing

The Return of the Black Death: VICE Reports (Full Length)

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-11-09

The black plague has broke out in Madagascar. In late 2013, a deadly outbreak of the plague hit small villages around the country killing dozens of people. Rumored to have taken root in overcrowded prisons, the disease has flourished amid Madagascar’s increasing poverty and poor waste management. Antibiotics to treat the disease have been developed and are available in most countries, but Madagascar’s rudimentary healthcare system has left a number of people stranded without care.

Journeyman Pictures

Life After Diamonds: The scarred landscape and social deprivation following Sierra Leone’s post-civil war industrial collapse.

Sierra Leone’s mining communities are facing immense challenges and destruction following the decline of the diamond industry. Cooperatives in the Kono district are engaging in reclamation of wasted mining sites into agricultural productive land to create food security, encourage wider industry adoption of Corporate Social Responsibility and promote improved legislation. The refilling of pits protects freshwater and groundwater reserves, and minimises health concerns like mosquitoes and drownings. The methods carried out by environmental foundations to recover the Sierra Leonean landscape seek to diversify options for livelihood, alleviate poverty and improve local social development.

The city of London is home to over 8 million people, a great mass of humanity that has given rise to thriving communities and buzzing social scenes. Barber shops are an example of where these communities coalesce, welcoming people from across social divides and from diverse cultural identities. The subjects of this film are three barber shops across the British capital, in the districts of Hackney, Herne Hill, and Catford, where we meet shopkeepers whose establishments act as a melting pot for people who call London home.
