Allow us to reintroduce you to Alicia Machado. You may remember her as Miss Universe 1996, the beauty who, after adding a few pounds during her reign, unfortunately was called an "eat­ing machine" by Donald Trump on The Howard Stem Show. (As for us, we've always liked curves.) But forget that— now think of her only as the most beau­tiful Venezuelan you've ever seen and the first Miss Universe to bare it all for us. "I was so happy to do this," Mach­ado says. "I had never posed nude before but figured the time was right." Queen Alicia was shot in Mexico, a land that loves Machado; when her pictorial recently ran in Mexican playboy, the issue became that edition's best-seller at the time. "I felt very beautiful to be outside in the sun and the sand," she says. "I think it shows in the photos."

Frank Owen vividly describes how in 1967 the "hoodies" caused a speed epidemic in Haight-Ashbury (The Dark Side of the Summer of Love, July), but I don't think he places enough empha­sis on the neighborhood's inherent weakness for meth. I first heard the snarling glossolalia of speeders there in 1964. At Timothy Leary's sugges­tion, the I.SD millionaire Owsley Stan­ley put a little meth in his first batches of acid, "for clarity." In those days there was a severe drought of mari-

French rock has long been an undeserved punch line, but anyone who has heard Jacques Dutronc's mid-1960s output knows Paris had sounds even back then to rival the grittiest British Invasion material. Now the city has produced a combo able to hold its own against the Scandinavian garage-band explosion and also serve as a Gallic answer to the Donnas. These girls make stripped-down guitar rock, and with most songs clocking in under two minutes, they do it right. (Caroline) vw —Tim Mohr

This jubilant U.K. troupe made a name with its childlike enthusi­asm, schoolyard-chant vocals and aggressively unorthodox approach to sampling, taking in every possible genre and style of music and spinning it all into a sparkling, upbeat funfest. The collective's signature treble-heavy, blissed-out cut-and-paste sound is once again in full effect on this second album, but it accommodates a surprising range of music, extending here even to Belle & Sebastian pop.

The former Pulp guitarist makes gorgeous throwback music, his deep voice crooning over guitar twang that evokes the era when swing metamorphosed into rockabilly. He is also a pop classicist, floating his songs—all of which are exquisite on this remarkably consistent album—on arrangements rich with strings, pianos and horns. The effect is like a modern-day ver­sion of Gene Vincent, whose "The Night Is So Lonely" wouldn't be out of place on this record. (Mute) VVVV —T.M.

We owe photographer Ommer a debt of gratitude for giving his subjects full artistic control. Sure, he facili­tated the process, helped arrange the mise-en-scenes, but then he left the room and relinquished the shutter trigger to a woman's hand. What's striking about the results is not just the range of physical beauty and attitudes but the joyful exhibitionism throughout. What's sexier than a woman eager to offer you a glimpse of her most private self? —Amy Grace Loyd

DLP SETS HAVE long been the Jan Brady of the TV market: solid, dependable and well priced but bulky and with far less wow factor than their Marcia-like flat-screen counterparts. Well, think of Mitsubishi's WD-73833 ($5,900, mitsubishi-tv.com) as Jan's coming-out party. The company sliced its 73-inch, 1080p sets from 200-plus pounds to a svelte 92.4 and squeezed its DLP guts into a chassis that's just 17.5 inches deep. Now that's what we call marriage material.

If only he had a decanter like this from Peugeot ($250, broadwaypanhandler.com) to turbo-charge the blossoming of his nectar. Arguably, he could have saved thousands—and the scene.

Although I agree with Curtis White's conclusion in "The Truth About Al Franken" (May), as one of those America lovers, I offer an alternative explanation as to why Al Franken and Rush Limbaugh find convergence. Perhaps through their own efforts and with support from fam­ily and friends, they have risen to posi­tions of renown, influence and significant socioeconomic status in their respective milieus. Perhaps they understand that no place else on earth offers such opportu­nity to rise from obscurity to influence. Just ask Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Cesar Chavez and Martin Luther King Jr. Perhaps Franken and Limbaugh find comfort in knowing that when they walk out of the studio after a good session of partisan yakety-yak no secret police will be waiting for them. Perhaps they understand that, for all the real and imagined problems America

london—Prolific author Salman Rush­die, whose 1988 novel The Satanic Verses raised the ire of the Muslim world and led Iran to issue a fatwa in 1989 calling for his murder, was awarded a knighthood this past sum­mer, causing renewed protests. Iranian and Pakistani government officials criticized the honor for Rushdie, whose second novel, Midnight's Children, won the prestigious Booker Prize in 1981 and the Booker of Bookers in 1993—meaning it was judged the best Booker winner in the award's then-25-year history. Pakistan's minister of religious affairs went so far as to say the honor would justify future suicide bombings in the U.K. The British gov­ernment is standing firm, pushing back against what Guardian writer Mark Lawson called "censorship by terror."

Washington. DC—Dr. Richard Carmona, the surgeon general from 2002 to 2006, told a congressional panel that Bush administration officials repeat­edly tried to weaken or suppress health reports, based on political considerations. He said he was not allowed to speak or issue reports about stem cells, emergency contraception and sex education, among other things, and was discouraged from at­tending the Special Olympics supposedly because of the Kennedy family's involvement with the or­ganization. He was also asked to make speeches supporting Republican political candidates. Car­mona consulted the six most recent surgeons gen­eral, and all said they felt Carmona faced more political interference than they had. "The reality is that the nation's doctor has been marginalized and relegated to a position with no independent budget and with supervisors who are political ap­pointees with partisan agendas," Carmona wrote in prepared testimony for Congress. "Anything that doesn't fit into the political appointees' ideological, theological or political agenda is ignored, margin­alized or simply buried. In public health, as in a democracy, there is nothing worse than ignoring science or marginalizing the voice of science for reasons driven by changing political winds."

recent years a particular species of provocateuse has sprung up at colleges across the country: the sex columnist. Whether she's flip and flirty or deadly earnest, her weekly musings on dating, mating and getting your­self tested can be much needed must-reads in bland campus newspapers. It's probably no coincidence that these pundits of pleasure were raised on Sex and the City. Whether they're destined to be Carrie Bradshaws, Dr. Ruths or suburban hausfraus is beside the point; right now, nobody knows more about the sexual goings-on in the collegiate trenches (as it were) than the young ladies who write about them every week. We spoke to seven of the best about campus carnality.

Bonar: The uncanny ability of a guy to know when a hot girl has set foot anywhere on the hall. Cleat Chaser: A girl who is obsessed with getting it on with athletes. Imagibation: Thinking intensely about waxing it with a really hot girl when you're in class. Mass Dumpings: Traditional times throughout the year when students execute simultaneous breakups. Some common mass dumpings are the Turkey Dump (before Thanks­giving break), the Spring Cleaning (before spring break) and the Hat Toss (right after graduation). Sexiled: When someone is forced to sleep outside his or her room because a roommate wants to get busy with a partner. Stride of Pride: Like the infamous post-one-night-stand walk of shame across campus but slower, to ensure bragging rights are received. Reserved almost exclu­sively for dudes.

THE MOST IMPORTANT STAT IN FOOTBALL
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
A.B.
We'll give you a hint. It's not total yards, total yards passing, total yards rushing or how many beers the quarterback downed the night before the game. The most impor­tant statistic for winning games in the NFL is yards per pass. Take the gross amount of yards gained in the air and divide by the num­ber of throws. The result is the best simple indicator of offensive effectiveness ever measured. Try this at the office every Monday morning during football season: Have someone open the sports pages to the NFL box scores and, without asking who won or even the names of the teams, have him give you just two totals for each team—the number of yards gained passing and the number of throws. The team that averaged the most yards per throw will be the win­ner more than 80 percent of the time. That's how it has been for the past half century in pro foot­ball, from Johnny Unitas to Peyton Manning. Good teams always finish in the top half of the league in yards per throw; bad teams finish in the bottom half. Let's simplify this even more: In the most recent Super Bowl, the Indianapolis Colts, who averaged 7.9 yards per throw during the regular season [first in the AFC], played the Chicago Bears, who averaged 6.7 [eighth in the NFC]. Forget the running game, defense and kicking game, and just remember the two teams' yards per throw. The Colts, of course, won 29-17. History says the Bears never had a chance. —fl.B.

There they partied with July cover girl Amanda Beard at the club Stereo by the Shore, an exten­sion of the New York City nightclub. This just made the night hotter for everyone else.

We have trouble seeing the greatness in the great outdoors if going there means missing a Jets game. If you're one of the higher beings who have evolved past feeling ashamed of their out-of-control TV habit, DirecTV would like a word. Pictured here in all its glory is the company's Sal-Go device ($1,500, directv.com), a 27-pound briefcase containing a satellite dish, receiver and 17-inch screen. Il runs off an internal battery for up to one hour, or you can plug it into your car for unlimited goggleboxing. Not only is it the ultimate tailgating accessory, you'll be amazed at how effectively 250 channels can distract you from the wonders of nature.

Most of our computer needs—e-mail, web browsing, image tweaking, word process­ing—don't require much power. Which is why we dig Zonbu (zonbu.com). This tiny PC comes without keyboard, monitor and mouse and costs $ 100 plus S13 to S20 a month for two years. (The monthly fee is for support and online storage.) It runs Linux (which works just like Windows) and is loaded with most of what you use for everyday computing.

The Jedi may jump around with their flashy lightsabii -but everyone knows the true hero of Star Wars is the little astromech that could, R2-D2. This two-thirds-scale R2 ($2,800, nikkor2d2.com) is nearly as useful as the original, with a built-in DVD player, photo-card readers, il'od dock and speakers, plus a video projector in his "eye." We say throw in Episode IV mix up some blue milk and improvise your own cantina scene. Just remember, no blasters.

Analog film isn't dead; it's just taking a disco nap. Lomographic's inexpensive single-purpose cameras put the whimsy back into cap­turing your life. We like the Fisheye No. 2 (right, $70, lomography .com), which compresses nearly 180 degrees of visuals into a demented circle. Deeper-pocketed filmheads will love this Leica homage, the Yasuhara T981 range finder (left, $700), complete with gold accents.

We have a simple system for predicting the weather: If the sky is clear when we leave the house, we don't pack an umbrella, ruins out our system doesn't work. Develop your meteorological ESP with an Ambient Umbrella ($125, ambit-ntdevices.com), the smartest rain stopper we've seen. Not just a good gust-busting brolly, it also receives wireless AccuVVeather.com data, and its handle lights up when the forecast calls for precip. Keep one by the door and never ruin a nice pair of Ferragamo loafers again.

There was a time when traveling by air meant getting dressed up. It meant your best double-knit poly-blend sky-blue slacks and a swell striped tie, wide as you please. Pan Am hasn't been running planes for 16 years, but its logo and baggage are timeless jet-age icons. Now Machine Project Inc. has revital­ized them with 12 cabin bags (from $52, panamone.com) that pay homage to a more civilized time. Because there's no better martini than the one you have at 20,000 feet.

Before Prohibition, New York was known for its rye. After it ended, the distillers never returned. Until now. Tuthilltown Spirits (tuthilltown.com) in Gardiner, New York began making booze two years ago, including Government Warning Rye ($40), whose spicy, peppery flavor says what an official name can't. Next to it you'll find its brother, Hudson Baby Bourbon ($40), made from 100 percent New York corn and sporting fruit notes that aren't overly sweet.
