Police Violence in Chicago

Police violence in Chicago

The rate of young black men killed by police in the US is five times that of young white men. Never have as many died as in 2015. About 25 percent of the African Americans killed were unarmed. David Bates from Chicago's South Side was 18 years old when police accused him of being involved in a drug deal. The police used violence to force him to make a confession. He was unjustly sentenced to prison and not released until eleven years later.

Singapore: Brain training for babies

East Asian families are spending more and more money to raise and educate their children. Not only in rich countries such as South Korea, but also in China, many even sell their homes to fund university studies abroad for their children. But it can be even more radical: in Singapore six-month-old babies go to brain training. Well, they probably need a hand getting there.

South Africa's Iron Ore Crisis

The once seemingly insatiable demand for raw materials turned many unremarkable towns into flourishing industrial centers. The town of Kathu in South Africa is one example. During the 1970s, it rose to become one of the iron ore capitals of South Africa. But iron ore prices have dropped drastically in recent years. In December, they reached their lowest level since the financial crisis. While the residents of Kathu once benefited from huge profits, today they are fearing for their jobs.

Poverty Healthcare: Mobile Clinics in the U.S.

Global 3000 is Deutsche Welle's weekly magazine that explores the intersection of global development and the environmental and social conditions of the diverse cultures of the world. In each program, host Michaela Kufner presents three to four video-rich segments that profile a different part of the planet where man's quest for economic and industrial strength is jeopardizing the ecosystems and the social and economic structures of people thousands of miles away. The program not only documents where those struggles are taking place - but how some groups and individuals are finding solutions to the growing problems of global development.
