Chinese Kids Driving Supercars: Inside the Secret Southern California Meet-up

Chinese Kids Driving Supercars: Inside the Secret Southern California Meet-up

China’s ultra-rich are growing in number and in wealth - and are sending billions of dollars out of the country. Much of it is landing up in the U.S. where many children of the wealthy elite are sent to get an American college education — and they’re living large. Vocativ found a sub-culture of these Chinese students in California. They drive luxury cars like Maseratis and Ferraris and flaunt their wealth at discreet private parties and in online groups, like "Super Cars in America”.

The World's Fastest Police Cars

The World's Fastest Police Cars

The Dubai police force are the proud owners of a 'super fleet,' a mass of high end sports cars from all over the world. Their latest addition to the fleet is the $1.6 million dollar Bugatti Veyron, cable of doing 267mph and from 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds. However, these vehicles are not used to chase criminals, but instead as a PR mechanism. Heralded as the most progressive of the Arab police forces, they drive the fleet to various tourist attractions in Dubai as a means of connecting with citizens and tourists. Its also another way for Dubai to flaunt their enormous wealth.

Street Harassment: Sidewalk Sleazebags and Metro Molesters

Street Harassment: Sidewalk Sleazebags and Metro Molesters

Jen Corey was crowned Miss DC in 2009 and made it to the top 10 of the Miss America Pageant in 2010. A tall and striking blonde, Jen has battled with overzealous men approaching her since she was a teenager. An incident at a D.C. bar prompted her to use her platform as a beauty queen to speak out against street harassment, a topic that is often dismissed as just ‘boys being boys.’ But Jen and other women argue that there is something more sinister that lies beneath the motivation to aggressively cat-call or approach women in public places: “Street harassment is almost never about sex. It's about power. Which is the same way we view rape. So saying street harassment is not a big deal is opening up the doorway for men to view women as an object to be obtained.” Jen herself was physically violated on the D.C. metro train in 2013 while coming home from work one night. This is her first interview about the incident. You don’t have to be a beauty queen to experience street harassment, a fact that we will show through a montage of stories with a variety of women. Vocativ will also give viewers a firsthand look at the experience of street harassment by strapping hidden cameras onto one of our female interviewees as she walks down a busy New York City street. http://voc.tv/1pAvczB In addition to Jen Corey, Vocativ interviewed Jennifer Pozner, Executive Director for Women in Media & News, and several members of Hollaback.

A Night With Japan's Highest Paid Male Gigolo

Japan's nightlife is home to hundreds of "host clubs." These are nightclubs where women pay men simply for their attention and affection. The male "hosts" can make as much as $200,000 a night. Not only do they get large tips from the female customers, they're also present with lavish gifts ranging from expensive alcohol to designer clothing. Vocativ went to Japan and spoke to Hikaru Aizawa, who is perhaps the most famous Japanese host of all.

Brazilian Gang Member Killed After Uploading Video To Facebook Live

Brazilian Gang Member Killed After Uploading Video To Facebook Live

Who killed this Rio gang member? When the gang Bonde Dos Cria took over the Nogueira community from the ADA gang, a man named Cigarrão reportedly broadcast the offensive on Facebook Live. When fellow gang members asked him whether the video was live, Cigarrão said he was going to delete it. He did not and was found dead a few days after posting it. Now people are wondering who killed him. Was it the police who tracked him on Facebook? Or was he murdered by members of his gang who didn't want to be identified online?

The Houses Where China's Babies Are Abandoned

The Houses Where China's Babies Are Abandoned

In an attempt to provide refuge for the 10,000 babies abandoned in China every year, Chinese authorities are funding “baby hatches”—tiny houses where parents can dump their unwanted children, no questions asked. Across China, 10,000 babies are abandoned every year, often on the side of the road. One out of three of those left on the street die. Now authorities have launched a radical experiment to rescue at least some of these tossed-aside tots. Baby hatches, 32 of which are dotted throughout China, serve as safe houses for parents to abandon children they feel they can't or simply won't raise themselves. And while these pastel-colored hatches may look like dollhouses, the babies placed inside are all too real. The baby hatch in Jinan, China, is painted bubblegum pink. Cartoon cats and clowns drawn on the façade appear cheerful, but the parents who come to abandon their babies are anything but. Holding the child for the last time, the parent approaches the hatch and presses a button on the outside of the building to anonymously alert an on-site nurse. The room inside is empty—save for an infant’s scale and an incubator where the parent leaves the child. Once the parent has left the premises, a nurse retrieves the child and brings it to a nearby orphanage. As part of our collaboration with MSNBC, Vocativ went to Guangzhou, China, to meet some of the parents who chose to use the baby hatch. Families tend to do so anonymously, but Lai Li, the father of a deformed little girl, was willing to speak up. In an interview with Vocativ, he says, “When my child was born, the doctors told me: ‘Your child was born with cleft palate and shortened legs, and our hospital does not accept this type of child.'” Many of the Chinese parents who abandon their children do so because their child is sick and they cannot afford proper care. “I have no money to raise my child," he says. "Who can we turn to? Who is willing to help us? When you are at the end of your rope…there is simply nothing you can do." Locals in Jinan say at least eight babies are left in the hatch every day. An estimated 1,400 babies have been abandoned since 2011 at China’s hatches. http://voc.tv/1sKTco5 Subscribe! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=vocativvideo See more on our website: http://www.vocativ.com Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/vocativ Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Vocativ
