Anti-Fascists Clash with Pegida Movement in Vienna: Hate in Europe

Founded in Germany in 2014, the far right, anti-Islamic movement Pegida has since spread throughout western Europe, with organizers planning demonstrations in Switzerland, Spain, and Belgium. On February 2, the movement held a rally in Vienna, Austria, but was met with opposition from anti-fascist activists in the city center. Despite being separated by heavy police presence, tension between the two groups escalated. VICE News went to the rally to find out what motivated Pegida supporters, as well as anti-Pegida demonstrators, to take to the streets.

Killed in “Unknown Circumstances”: Russia’s Ghost Army in Ukraine (Part 1)

The bitter conflict in Ukraine has cost thousands of lives, but the Russian government has continuously denied sending its soldiers to the frontlines, despite accusations to the contrary from NATO and Western officials. VICE News travels to Russia to investigate the mysterious deaths of dozens — possibly hundreds — of active-duty Russian servicemen who are believed to have been killed in Ukraine. Accounts gathered from soldiers’ families, human rights workers, and government officials cast doubt on the Kremlin narrative, revealing the unacknowledged sacrifices borne by Russia’s ghost army. In part one of a three part series, VICE News travels to Russia to investigate the small but steady stream of coffins arriving in villages across the country, containing maimed bodies of soldiers killed in “unknown circumstances.” Watch “Civilians Return to Debaltseve: Russian Roulette (Dispatch 96)” – http://bit.ly/1FNSCuz Watch “The Ruins of Donetsk Airport: Russian Roulette (Dispatch 95)” – http://bit.ly/1FFP4KN Read “‘It Is a Government Crime’: The Coffins of Russia’s Ghost Soldiers in Ukraine Are Coming Home” – http://bit.ly/1aIUxax Read “Russian Newspaper to Release Document That Allegedly Links Kremlin to Ukraine Invasion” – http://bit.ly/1DikIeW Read “Thousands Mourn Boris Nemtsov at Somber March in Moscow” – http://bit.ly/1Ax5BMS Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News Check out VICE News for more: http://vicenews.com Follow VICE News here: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/vicenews Twitter: https://twitter.com/vicenews Tumblr: http://vicenews.tumblr.com/ Instagram: http://instagram.com/vicenews More videos from the VICE network: https://www.fb.com/vicevideos

Small Business May Be Less Innovative Than You Think

Source: Created from data from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office

Many observers have argued that small businesses are more innovative than large companies because they are more nimble and because they offer greater incentives for people to take risks and be creative. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), for example, points out companies with fewer than 500 employees produce more patented inventions per capita than companies with 500 or more employees.
