Australian Couple Living Totally Off The Grid (Video)

I stay amazed at what folks are doing with tiny house and Earthship living projects. This couple has maxed the off-the-grid tiny house concept for reals though. Check it out!

This tiny house is ready for anything! Completely off the grid, this tiny home on wheels generates its own solar power, collects rainwater, uses solar water heating and even generates it’s own biogas for cooking.

Paul and Annett had been living the city life, in an apartment in Sydney, Australia. A desire to lower their impact on the earth and live closer to nature led them to designing and building their own eco-friendly tiny house powered by renewable energies and moving onto a remote property outside of Byron Bay.

Back Story Of The Israel-Palestine Conflict (Video)

Peace in the Middle East. We got used to saying the phrase; praying for it to become a reality. If you already know the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, good on you for being informed. I will admit to not knowing. I came across many storytellings like this on YouTube. Though I do not claim the expertise to declare it absolutely so, this one seems to speak to the true history in an even-toned manner.

Almost time to get some grub! Who’s craving Italian… like pizza? If you’re not, just watch this clip for a taste. You will be.

Not only does he visit his family in the small town of Baucina, where they are celebrating Santa Fortunata, their town’s patron saint, he also explores the pizza scene in Palermo. In Sicily, it’s all about the Sfincione, the regional style of focaccia that is traditionally topped with breadcrumbs, anchovies, and a hard sheep’s milk cheese. Viva Santa Fortunanta!

Indonesian Teenagers Making Fast Cash In Illegal Motorcycle Races (Documentary)

This is insane! Man, things youth do, thinking they are immortal and invincible. Plus, there’s the money. Definitely a risk vs. reward thing to do; these high-speed illegal street races. Faster & furiouser. Watch!

Motorcycles rule the streets of Indonesia. By day, the bikes zip through Jakarta, ferrying residents to and from work—but by night, the roads give way to the underground world of illegal street racing. Kids as young as 12 compete in the high-speed sprints, where riders can make a small fortune off a single race. The rewards are great, but the risks are just as high: Flying down roads at breakneck speeds, one, small mistake can cost a “speed jockey” their life.

On this episode of ‘VICE INTL,’ VICE Indonesia went inside Jakarta’s dangerous, high-stakes street racing scene. We met up with a 16-year-old rising star to hear how he got involved, talked to the cops cracking down on illegal drag racing, and checked out a sprint ourselves—watching as two teenagers faced off for more cash than most Indonesians make in a month.

– VICE

Started watching this with that BDP joint “Love’s Gonna Getcha” in mind… kids like: “I make about a G a week. F**K school!”

Sports: Is Bill Preston Good Enough To Go From NCAA To NBA Basketball? We Will Never Know (Video)

I feel like, if I was still playing in college, I’d be much more successful.

Damn. Talk about a cultural upheaval. They didn’t like the way his transportation situation looked and the NCAA took Preston away from college basketball… and possibly his ticket to success in life for him and his family??? Wow.

Billy Preston should be playing with Kansas in the NCAA tourney right now. Instead, his career is in limbo because of an NCAA investigation that was never completed.

Forest Whitaker Stars in “The Forgiven” (Video)

Maaaan. I didn’t even know this movie was out about Bishop Desmond Tutu. Forest Whitaker as the Bishop, huh? Not a bad choice. Respect! Opposite Eric Bana, a Hollywood heavyweight in a heavy role. “The Forgiven” looks like a good look.

Women Of Color Are Trying To Get Out Of The United States (Video)

Damn. Has it come to this? Our sistas go on retreats… women do, PEOPLE do… but the driver for WHY they are going in this piece. They need PEACE! And a SAFE space! A vacay trip is about ‘escape’ but this is an ESCAPE escape from the real harm they suffer.

It comes as no surprise that a time when White supremacist groups have gained increased public notoriety and the President has disparaged African nations as “sh!tholes,” many Black Americans are feeling isolated and unsafe in communities or workplaces.

Many of them are turning those frustrations into acts of self-preservation, and are spending significant money to get outside of the country and away from the people who make them feel that way.

Since the election of President Trump, at least 5 black-owned trip organizations have told VICE News that they’ve experienced upticks in interest from clients eager to get out of the United States.

VICE News followed a group of women to the Women of Color Healing Retreat in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica; a travel experience that emphasized yoga, vegan food, political education seminars, and specifically banned White people.

– VICE News Tonight

And the commentary of Trump, and his supporters. Just watch.

Travel: Arizona’s Blue Water Paradise (Video)

Admittedly, I’m more likely to take a trip and be fascinated enough by the hotel room. Probably why I am not on the official JayForce Travel Squad. But that’s alright because I know the fam would dig this!
