SPORTING ONLY a strategically placed tripod and camera, Gisele Bündchen welcomed readers to our first ever Photo Issue (October). Inside, seven visionary photographers offered defining images of this country (“America Untitled, 2004”), Andrew Hetherington took us into the homes and backyards of swing-state voters (“The 7 People Who Will Elect the President”), an eclectic movie director shared his private Polaroids (“Excerpts from the John Waters Project”), and Terry Bradshaw showed us his Bible (“Hideously Invasive Photographs of Famous People”).

The work on our Best and Brightest issue, which appears every December, begins early in the year and draws in the entire staff in pursuit of problem solvers and thinkers with an inspired idea of the future. The research on this, our third-annual installment, was directed by our exceptional and tireless editorial assistant TYLER CABOT, along with his lieutenants Doug Cantor, Miguel Syjuco, Buddy Kite, and former assistant editor Daniel Torday.

THIS IS THE THIRD YEAR we’ve devoted a large chunk of our December issue to the Best and Brightest (page 186), a celebration of Americans committed to positive change, whose work will bear fruit over the next few years. We did things a little differently this year.

BUDDY KITE
Why should all hurricanes be named after women? When they arrive, they’re wet and wild, and when they leave, they take your house and car. You can relax those pecs now, buddy. Although Kreuk has spent countless takes on Smallville in the muscled embrace of Superman, she’s unimpressed by Hollywood heroes.

THE EUROPEANS, timid souls, are famously resistant to genetically modified foodstuffs. (And yet they’ll eat KFC....) Recently, a posse of biotech companies put their heads together to find a way to desensitize the public and came up with pretty much the same answer guys always get when they put their heads together: beer.

(1) THE GENERAL French term for sliced and preserved meats. (2) A hot trend in American restaurants. The typical charcuterie platter may include cured meats, terrines (ground meats baked in molds), pâtés (terrines baked in pastry crusts), and rillettes (mashed meats preserved in small pots) and is usually priced under $15.

FRANCINE MAROUKIAN
CHILI VERDE, true to its name, relies on green and poblano chiles spiked with jalapeños for flavor and heat. So please resist the urge to sling in chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, or any of those other “secret” ingredients you add to your regular red-chili recipe.

Is there any way to wear a tie and shorts at the same time without looking like Angus Young of AC/DC? I am 28. At your age? The only time I tried it was between the ages of 8 and 11, when my parents signed me up at Lady Phyllis Loveday’s School for Boys on Manhattan’s Upper East Side (now fortunately defunct).

TOM JUNOD
Everybody now is beautiful or in the process of becoming so. Beauty, which previously provided an American alternative to aristocracy, is being made available to anyone who wants it enough. The model as paragon is passé. With the almost anachronistic exception of the Victoria's Secret posse, models are strictly specialty items, and most men would gladly pass on the cubist waifs haunting the pages of, say, W for a chance at any of the healthy streaked blonds lining up for the services of The Bachelor.

HELEN WALSH is demure and sweet— and unabashedly depraved. The 27-year-old Liverpudlian amassed material for her well-received first novel, Brass (Canongate U.S., by working the red-light district of Barcelona as a “fixer,” guiding sheepish, horny guys to transvestite hookers, and doing time in seedy strip clubs—as a customer. We spoke with the procuress turned scribe to learn a bit more about her writing.

NOAH OPPENHEIM
MARK HELPRIN’S SHORT STORIES should not be consumed in one sitting. Otherwise, you may drown in melancholy. Cracking open The Pacific and Other Stories (Penguin Press, $26), the first collection in nearly a decade from the industrious novelist and political columnist, is like uncorking a bottle of red wine and playing a Coltrane LP in a dark, smoky den: therapeutic, if that’s your sort of thing.

MIKE D' ANGELO
ZOMBIES ARE BACK IN FASHION, it seems. First there was Dawn of the Dead, then Shaun of the Dead, and now, just in time for Oscar season, here comes Yawn of the Dead, in which various moldering encyclopedia entries—Kinsey, Alfred; Barrie, J. M.; Darin, Bobby; Great, Alexander the—shamble collectively from the grave to edify audiences into a holiday coma.

<p>DON’T LET LAURA LINNEY’S innocent smile fool you. The actress is not afraid to play dirty. In Dylan Kidd’s P. S., she beds a younger man, played by Topher Grace, just because he reminds her of an ex; in the biopic Kinsey, she plays the hesitantly liberated wife of the iconoclastic sexual scientist Alfred Kinsey (Liam Neeson).</p>

WHAT, EXACTLY, is your lifestyle? This should be an easy question. In fact, it’s the kind of question we all should be uniquely qualified to answer with 100 percent accuracy. If your lifestyle is simply “the style in which you live your life,” the response should be self-evident.

My thumbs are sore. Sore from taking the hapless Chicago Bulls from cellar dweller to Eastern Conference champions. Doing what Jerry Reinsdorf could never do after Michael Jordan. It was a long road, complete with two orders of Thai takeout, five beers, a few blockbuster trades, a knock-down-drag-out five-game series with the Pistons, and a league salary cap that just doesn’t seem fair.

Okay, okay, your house probably doesn’t look like the one below—or have one of those neat hovercars parked outside. But that’s not the point. The point is that a few years ago, the “wired” house was strictly the domicile of the dweeb. Now, thanks to a new breed of smart, stylish, and simple new gadgets, outfitting a pad with the toys of tomorrow is so easy, even we could do it.

My girlfriend says she wants to have a threesome with me and some guy from work. Am I not satisfying her? Does she like this other guy? I feel confused, vulnerable, and inadequate. Yes, and I feel a constant, nagging sense of insignificance. We could talk about our feelings all day, but your girlfriend will probably still want to bone Joel from human resources.

CONSIDER YOUR FEET. Leathery, gnarly, speckled with sock lint: Do they look like they know what they’re doing? Nike thinks so. The Nike Free ($85; nike.com) is designed to simulate the action of running barefoot. Here’s the theory: Over the past thirty years, running shoes have become more and more cushioned and supportive—and yet runners get injured just as often as they always have.

The answer is no. But I understand where you're coming from. On one hand, going organic is definitely not the most cost-effective and healthy change you can make to your diet. You can get around most problems associated with conventionally grown foods simply by cutting out the bad stuff (processed food and simple carbs) and washing the good stuff (your nine daily servings of fruits and vegetables) before you eat it.

<p>1 HERE'S THE THING: I really needed a teakettle. I had been boiling water in a saucepan or heating cups of water in the microwave since my wife left three years ago. A teakettle, I felt, said something about the texture of my life: If tea is being made here with some regularity, how bad can things really be? About then, I learned that the great American architect Michael Graves had designed a teakettle for Target.</p>

When you look at the High Line, the elevated railway that snakes down the far West Side of Manhattan, you pretty much feel as if you’re looking straight into the past. Abandoned twenty-four years ago, entrances padlocked, the mile-and-a-half-long track has transmogrified into an artery of weeds, largely invisible from the street.

When Aliph needed to convert its noise-reduction technology into a cell-phone earpiece consumers would covet, it turned to Yves Béhar. The Swissborn San Francisco designer, thirty-seven, had already developed products for Birkenstock, Herman Miller, and Mini in such artful ways that he was given his own show at SFMOMA.

It may be that what separates us from the street—the yard, the wall, the front porch—makes us human. It protects us, buffers us, offers our identity to the world. The Dutch-born Winka Dubbeldam redefines that relationship every time she sets to work in a city—most recently New York—challenging the traditional notion of urban setbacks.
