Hormel’s Bacon Powered Diesel Motorcycle


Driven By Bacon, this documentary is about a diesel motorcycle that runs on bacon grease fuel. Austin-based Hormel makes a bacon grease powered motorcycle. Hormel came up with the idea of powering a motorcycle dubbed Hormel Black Label Bacon Motorcycle that runs on B-100 bio-diesel which is converted from bacon waste into bio-diesel by bio-Blend Fuels in Winsconsin. The bike fuel costs just $3.50 a gallon and makes the motorcycle run 75-100 miles per gallon. According to Nick Schweitzer, Hormel brand manager, the bacon bio-fuel does leave behind the smell of bacon when one drives it on the roads which all goes well for bacon lovers. Hormel is also looking for a bacon lover who’ll ride the bike on a cross country trip from Austin, MN to San Diego, CA.

In the last three decades, fueled in large part by a national drug policy and legislation like three strikes laws, America has imprisoned more people in local jails, federal penitentiaries, and private correctional facilities than Stalin put in the Gulags. New court rulings have declared overcrowded prisons to be unconstitutional, and the sheer cost of incarceration is forcing prisons to let prisoners back out on the streets.

Warriors Off The Res: Aboriginal Gangs in Winnipeg


Winnipeg is the capital of Manitoba, Canada — and for 16 of the past 33 years, it has also been the country’s murder capital. The prairie city is home to just under 800,000 people, about 10 percent of whom are Aboriginal, meaning Winnipeg boasts the largest urban Aboriginal population in Canada. Largely impoverished and facing continual discrimination, the community has given rise to violent Aboriginal street gangs. VICE News went to Winnipeg to spend time with gang members and find out why they’re linked to the majority of the city’s murders.
