🇺🇸 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.

🇮🇩 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.

🇻🇪 Surviving Venezuela: Smuggling Dreams | Witness | Sueños de Contrabando
 
25:01
Far away from Venezuela's capital Caracas lies a coastal town struggling to feed itself. Cradled in the Gulf of Paria, the town survives on fishing, but almost everything else is smuggling to its shores from neighbouring Trinidad. With no end in sight to the country's political and economic crises under President Nicolas Maduro, Jhan Lopez is growing more desperate by the day. The 28-year-old fisherman and his family had expected that the government would continue to send food and other necessities to his town, but nothing has arrived in months and Jhan has lost faith that it ever will. A single-father, Jhan is looking for alternative means to provide for his daughter and diabetic father and decides to try and join the smuggling trade, but many challenges lie between him and the sacks of rice and medicine that he badly needs. ------------------------ Lejos de Caracas, la capital de Venezuela, se ubica un pueblo costero que lucha por sobrevivir. Situado en el Golfo de Paria, este lugar sobrevive de la pesca pero casi todo lo demás proviene del contrabando que llega a sus costas desde la vecina Trinidad. Sin una solución a la vista en la crisis política y económica del gobierno del presidente Nicolás Maduro, la angustia de Jhan Lopez aumenta día a día. Este pescador de 28 años y su familia esperaban que, como solía hacerlo, el gobierno enviara alimentos y otros productos a su pueblo pero han pasado meses, nada ha llegado y Jhan ha perdido la esperanza. Es un padre soltero que busca la forma de sostener a su menor hija y atender a su padre diabético. Jhan decide ingresar al comercio de contrabando. Pero debe superar los muchos obstáculos que se interponen entre él y los sacos de arroz y medicinas que tanto necesita.

🇺🇸 Heroin's Children: Inside the US opioid crisis | Fault Lines
 
25:21
The United States is going through the worst drug crisis in its history. It now claims more lives than gun deaths, tears families apart - and shows no signs of abating. As US President Donald Trump declares America's opioid crisis a "national emergency," Fault Lines looks at the "invisible victims" of the epidemic - a generation of children who are being neglected, abandoned or orphaned by parents addicted to heroin. So, how is the opioid crisis shaping the next generation of Americans? Josh Rushing travels to Chillicothe, a small Ohio town at the centre of the drug crisis, to meet a teenager who lost both her parents to drugs, a mother whose heroin addiction led her to overdose in front of her young son, a grandmother unexpectedly raising four granddaughters, pregnant women struggling with addiction, and police and firefighters responding to harrowing overdose scenes.

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?

We investigate the dangers still facing Rohingya women, and meet the people seeking to exploit them.

🇸🇴 🇦🇪 Somalia-UAE tensions escalate after plane stopped in Puntland | Al Jazeera English
 
02:21
Somali officials reportedly grounded a United Arab Emirates plane in Somalia after Emirati military instructors on board refused to allow a search of their baggage. Last week, the Somali government had seized almost $10m in sealed bags from a UAE Royal Jet at Mogadishu International Airport. These incidents reflect the frosty relations between Mogadishu and Abu Dhabi since June last year when Mogadishu resisted pressure from the UAE and Saudi Arabia to cut ties with Qatar. The disagreement between Somalia and the UAE centres around two deals connected with the UAE, one to build a military base in the strategic port of Berbera in secessionist Somaliland.

🇯🇵 Ageing Japan | The Burden of a Graying Planet | 101 East
 
25:04
Japan faces a demographic crisis. Its population is falling rapidly due to an ageing population and declining birthrates. In two decades from now, seniors will outnumber children under 15 by nearly four to one. The situation is now so critical that adult nappies outsell baby nappies in the country. Japan's overall population fell by a record quarter-million to 127.8 million last year, and by 2060, the population is expected to fall by an additional one-third to as few as 87 million. And 40 per cent of those remaining will be over 65 years old. The demographic decline has led to a spike in social problems and 'kodokushi', or "lonely deaths", which is a Japanese phenomenon that came about in the 1980s, is now growing increasingly common. Four million Japanese elderly live by themselves, while family members who choose to care for an elderly relative often experience isolation and a burden themselves. As the country ages, the Japanese government must ensure an ever dwindling workforce can pay for a growing number of pensioners. Japan hopes to raise consumption tax by five per cent and the retirement age to 70 years to ease pressure on the social security and pension system. But those who work in hospitals and services for the elderly believe the country will have to embrace immigration to plug gaps in the workforce. Yet, Japan's ageing pains are creating commercial opportunities for some: Companies are exploring new technologies to capitalise on an emerging market they call the "silver yen", including androids that can work as carers and robotic legs for patients who are too old to walk themselves. On this edition of 101 East, we ask if Japan can overcome being a rapidly ageing and declining population.

🇷🇺 Putin: Russia has 'undetectable' nuclear missile | Al Jazeera English
 
02:50
President Vladimir Putin says Russia has developed an array of new, strategic nuclear weapons which cannot be intercepted. This marks a breakthrough that could dramatically boost Russia's military capability, and raises concerns about a new arms race with the West. Putin showed off the weapons in his annual state of the nation address. They include a nuclear-powered cruise missile, underwater drone and hypersonic missile. He said the new weapons can pierce through NATO's US-led missile defence systems - rendering them "useless", and, according to him, putting an effective end to Western efforts to limit Russia's development.

Would we be better off without religion 🛐? - UpFront
 
25:14
Is religion a force for good or evil? A controversial question at times, but one that can't be avoided in the modern world. From violence and terror, to gender equality, to science, reason, and education, the faithful and the faithless tend to repeatedly clash over whether religion is a net positive or negative, whether it helps humanity more than it hurts it. “Religion is both a force of good and evil because religion is a manmade institution, and human beings are both good and evil,” says Reza Aslan, a scholar of religion and best-selling author. “I don't know why it would come as a surprise to learn that the religious institutions that we create can also be responsible for profound acts of good and compassion and positivity, and for equally profound acts of violence and bigotry and hatred.” Lawrence Krauss, a theoretical physicist and atheist, says religious institutions tend to be harmful to people. “Religious institutions have not only usurped the notion of morality, but on the whole promulgate ideas that are not useful, and often harmful for people, and take many people, many, many, many people, who simply want to ask questions about the universe and make them feel bad,” says Krauss. When asked whether people will outgrow religion, Aslan, who just released his latest book God: A Human History, says we are not going to outgrow faith. “The fact of the matter is that religion has always been in a state of evolution,” says Aslan. “Scientific knowledge is going to change religion. It's going to alter religious people, but it won't make it go away.” Krauss, who is also a best-selling author of numerous books on science, including his latest, The Greatest Story Ever Told – So Far, doesn’t believe religion will disappear, but says more will turn to science. “When I was a young person, I thought by now we would have outgrown religion because, let's face it, the evidence of science is that there's no evidence for anything, for any purpose to the universe, any divine inspiration,” says Krauss. “The more scientific literacy there is, the less of the intellectual basis will be there to support religion and we'll see more and more people finding other ways to add meaning and purpose to their lives.” In this week’s UpFront special, Reza Aslan and Lawrence Krauss debate religion’s place in society, whether religion is inherently violent, and if religion will continue to exist in years to come.

Football's Wall of Silence - Al Jazeera Investigations
 
47:33
Former youth football coach Barry Bennell, one of the top talent spotters in Britain with ties to major clubs like Manchester City and Crewe Alexandra, spent his days coaching children and his nights abusing them. Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit profiles six men, all victims of Bennell, and explores the long-term impact of his serial abuse. Deborah Davies first reported on Barry Bennell’s crimes 20 years ago. She has befriended his victims and has a rare insight into their plight. In a powerful and heartbreaking documentary, she describes how some have turned to substance abuse and even attempted suicide. More than a few have not survived, one likely victim being his most famous player, former Wales international and manager Gary Speed. The investigation uncovers new evidence that, according to teammates, Speed was abused by Bennell. The programme also reveals that high-profile clubs, as well as Britain’s Football Association, failed to protect children and in some cases failed to act on warnings. After this film was made, Crewe Alexandra said that the Club was not aware of any sexual abuse by Bennell nor received any complaints about sexual abuse by him. They say the police investigated the Club's knowledge, including interviewing Hamilton Smith and found no evidence to corroborate that it was aware of Bennell’s offending.

🇵🇰 How are Pakistan's buses painted into beautiful art? | AJ Shorts
 
04:02
Mohammed Rafiq has been painting Pakistan's colourful buses for 40 years, but there's a dark side to the industry. Like millions of his compatriots, Rafiq started work at the age of 12, missing out on education and exploited as a child labourer. "We would put our heart into it," said Rafiq, recalling his early days as a bus painter. "Nowadays the apprentices come and just see it as a day job," he sighs, sitting on a plastic chair on the muddy tarmac as Pakistan's now iconic colourful buses roll by. He picked up painting quickly and gained notoriety for his skill, drawing beautiful scenes on the buses that would travel across the country. "My work spread all over Pakistan. But we didn't get much money per bus." More than 40 years of working without any safety equipment or precautions have taken their toll. At 69 years old, Rafiq's lungs are now failing. "This sickness is because of the paint, the chemicals, thinners, petrol fumes," he explains, gasping for breath. Filmed by Al Jazeera's Hassan Ghani.

🇺🇦 The Oligarchs - Al Jazeera Investigations
 
50:01
Aljazeera’s Investigative Unit unravels a high-stakes international plot hatched by powerful Eastern European oligarchs to make millions of dollars from a crooked deal. According to one Ukrainian analyst: “It sounds like an agreement between criminal bosses. You can sign it with your blood.” The scheme involves using a web of offshore companies and international lawyers to raid US$160 million dollars under the noses of the authorities. The money is effectively being stolen for a second time… the funds were initially frozen by Ukraine’s courts after its former president, Viktor Yanukovych, was discovered to have emptied the country’s treasury. The Oligarchs include an exiled gas billionaire guarded by Russian special forces, a Moscow property magnate and an Olympic show jumper on the run from Ukrainian authorities. The investigation shines light on the ever shifting battle between the oligarchs and global financial regulators.

The institutions that serve US citizens are increasingly regarded as self-serving while the people are increasingly divided and polarised along racial and economic lines. In this two-part series, The Big Picture: The People vs America we explore the construction and mythology of the American Dream and uncover the reality of exclusion and denial. We chart the history of post-Second World War America to uncover how race has dominated the political landscape and continues to shape the America of today.
