Inside America’s Billion Dollar Divorce Industry

There are one million divorces in the United States every year—that’s one every 36 seconds, nearly 2,400 per day, and 16,800 per week. It’s hardly surprising, then, that the divorce industry is worth a whopping $50 billion annually—that’s a hell of lot of heartbreak. In the latest episode of our series on the love industries, we delve into the growing industry offering people alternative ways to split. In the divorce capital of the world, New York City, we explore the industries making heartbreak bearable and learn that—whether it’s divorce merchandise, “conscious uncoupling,” or “reverse-wedding” planning—people’s attitudes toward the sanctity of marriage are changing, while Americans in particular are adopting new-age rituals as a way to call time on their relationships.

“LGBT Rights are Practically Nonexistent in Nigeria”

Full report here: — The UK is facing an economic crisis, falling living standards, a climate crisis, the rise of the far-right. More than ever, we need a resilient Left. This means we need a strong Left media, capable of thinking honestly about the issues facing us, tackling these issues head-on, as well as reaching out to those who aren’t yet on side. Our wide range of output — from listicles to essays, from punchy videos to in-depth discussions — does exactly that. But all this costs money: studio rent, equipment, contributor fees and digital infrastructure. We do a lot with a little, but we can’t do anything with nothing. We wonâ€

Meathooked & End of Water (VICE on HBO: Season 4, Episode 5)

The world is addicted to meat: In developing countries around the world, diets are starting to look more like ours, incorporating more and more beef and pork. Massive factory farms are springing up to supply that demand. But industrial meat operations produce more than just cheap T-bones; they also dish out enormous environmental harm. VICE travels to the feedlots, farms and slaughterhouses where our meat is made, to see the true costs of our burger habit. Water is the single most vital resource we have — but it’s also one of the most threatened. Around the world, from the American West to China, South Asia and the Middle East, the water we need is simply disappearing. VICE reports from California’s once-abundant farmland and the heart of São Paulo’s reservoir system to assess the dept

Afghanistan After Us | La Haine (VICE on HBO: Season 3, Episode 13)

Last year, the United States began withdrawing our combat troops from the longest war in our history: Afghanistan. But the war isn’t ending just because we’re leaving. This year, Afghan National Security Forces deaths and civilian casualties are both at record highs, and opium cultivation is at its highest since the war began. Ben Anderson returns to Helmand, the country’s most violent province, to investigate the security situation in Afghanistan as American involvement winds down. Then: the horrific attack at the offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo captivated the world—and it underscored the deep religious and cultural tensions that have been rocking France. Distrust is growing between the growing Muslim population in Paris’s depressed suburbs, and a Jewish community that fee
