Gunshot Wounds in the ER (Extra Scene from ‘San Pedro Sula Nights’)

San Pedro Sula, Honduras, has made it to the top of the list of the world’s most dangerous cities (outside of war zones) for three consecutive years, with an annual homicide rate of 187 per 100,000 people. Reporting crime in Honduras is considered a high-risk job — according to the Honduran National Human Rights Committee, at least 47 journalists and media executives have been murdered between 2003 and 2014. In this extra scene, VICE News spent the night in an overcrowded emergency room of the Mario Catarino Rivas hospital in San Pedro Sula, where cases of bullet wounds are all too common.

Settlers, Olives, and Occupation: Voices from the West Bank

In response to last year’s Gaza conflict, the Israeli government announced the construction of further settlements in the West Bank — a move condemned by the international community for escalating tensions that were already highly fraught. The expansion of the settlements has consumed privately owned Palestinian land, causing the destruction of Palestinian homes, produce, and livelihoods. Despite Israeli settlements taking up only one percent of land in the West Bank, they now exert control over 42 percent, with settlement boundaries often 10 times larger than the settlements themselves. VICE News traveled to the West Bank to speak to displaced Palestinians and activists who are trying desperately to address the grievances that boiled over with such horrific consequences in 2014.

The Best Neglected Team Building Idea You’ve Never Heard Of

011215 handpile

Find a good subject, a good teacher, and an hour of blocked time and you have a great team-building idea for a management team.

I’ve seen this work with many different business-related topics. The first time I saw it, I was part of an Apple Computer team listening to marketing guru Lynn Phillips explain value-based marketing. His marketing theory was spellbinding. And it wasn’t just me — I was one of about two dozen. That half day sparked a delightful shower of new ideas and long-term discussions. Whatever Apple paid him was well worth it.

France Grieves for Charlie Hebdo: Paris Gun Attack (Dispatch One)

The first week of 2015 turned tragic when three masked gunmen stormed the Paris offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo killing 12 people, including some of France’s most prominent cartoonists, and injuring many more. Despite the perpetrators remaining at large, and France raising its terror alert to the highest level, more than 100,000 people across France took to the streets in solidarity with the victims of the country’s worst terror attack in decades. VICE News went to Place de la République following the attack, where grieving Parisians from all groups of society have gathered. We spoke to people who either knew the cartoonists personally, were fans of Charlie Hebdo, or were attending to stand up for freedom of expression in the face of deadly intimidation tactics.

Withings has introduced the Activite and Activite Pop. These are actually analog watches with internal mechanisms that allow them to feed activity information to an app you have on your smartphone.

Two sets of moving hands on the Activite and Activite Pro tell the time in minutes and seconds, of course.
