A Crime Unpunished: Bangladeshi Gang Rape (Extra Scene)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News A recent UN report revealed that one in eight men in rural Bangladesh admit to having committed rape. Although it is a crime punishable by death, there are no accurate government figures for rape in Bangladesh, largely due to social stigma and a failure by local authorities to investigate alleged crimes. VICE News correspondent Tania Rashid traveled to Sylhet and met with both perpetrators and victims of rape as well as local police to find out what is driving Bangladeshi men to rape and abuse women, and what steps the authorities are taking to put an end to it.

An Uncertain Fate: Mexico’s Disappeared Students (Part 3)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News On September 26, teaching students from the Ayotzinapa Normal School in Mexico were intercepted by police forces en route to a protest in Iguala. In the ensuing clash, six people were killed, and 43 Ayotzinapa students were taken away by the police. Investigations over the following weeks led to the startling allegations that the police had acted at the behest of the local mayor, and had turned over the abducted students to members of the Guerreros Unidos cartel. All 43 students are now feared dead. The case has come to represent the negative feeling of the Mexican public toward the state of justice and the rule of law in Mexico. The events have now galvanized the survivors of the attack and the disappeared students’ parents. Nationwide demonstrations have increased in intensity, and recently led to government buildings in the state of Guerrero to be set on fire. In the final episode, VICE News travels to Cocula, where another mass grave has been found, raising a new theory as to the fate of the 43 missing students, as protests in Mexico City against the president and government have reached boiling point.

Think You Can’t Afford a Butler? Alfred Could Prove You Wrong

alfred

Have you ever wished you had your own butler, like Bruce Wayne’s Alfred? Most people could use a little bit of help with their housework and chores now and again. But few have the money and resources to hire live-in help like Alfred. If you’re one of those people who could use some minor assistance, there’s a new solution that might want to consider.

Startup Alfred, named for the famous butler in Batman, aims to make hiring housework help affordable. At just $99 a month, an Alfred butler will come to your home to perform various chores like cleaning, sorting mail and folding laundry.

The business is also partnering with services like Instacart (a grocery delivery service), Washio (a laundry and dry-cleaning service), and handy (a housecleaning service). Alfred can coordinate and manage those various services so you don’t have to bother with contacting and coordinating with each one individually.

Co-founders Marcela Sapone and Jessica Beck first came up with the idea for Alfred during a brainstorming session at Harvard Business School. After they completed their assignment, they kept working on their idea and eventually dropped out of school to pursue it full time.

The concept of a butler isn’t exactly new. But providing just a little bit of help to ordinary people who could use the extra time during the week is something that seems to have pretty widespread appeal. Sapone told CNN:

“It’s a really good service for parents who work and are juggling a family. [And] for young professionals putting in a lot of hours [or] entrepreneurs who are busy trying to launch what they’re passionate about.”

All of Alfred’s workers have to undergo background checks and multiple rounds of interviews before starting. Currently, the service is only available in New York and Boston. But already the company has some 100 of these personal “Alfreds’ standing by waiting to help busy entrepreneurs, parents and professionals lighten their loads.
