El Paso and Juarez are twin cities divided by lines both real (the Rio Grande) and conceptual (the U.S.-Mexico border). You'd think being just a few hundred yards apart they'd share a vibe. And you'd be dead wrong. Or if you're on the Juarez side, maybe just plain dead. In A Weird Calm at the Edge of the Abyss Luis Alberto Urrea (author of The Devil's Highway and Into the Beautiful North) explores the politics and pathos of the border. Taking things in a lighter direc­tion, Aaron Sigmond delivers stogie wisdom in Burn After Reading, a guide to how one of our favorite plants makes its way from the ground to your humidor. You'll find an exclu­sive special edition of Sigmond's forthcom­ing book Playboy: The Complete Guide to Ci­gars at fine tobacconists in November and in bookstores everywhere this spring. And now time for a riddle: How do you get one of the world's most beautiful supermodels to pose nude? Answer: Put her boyfriend behind the camera. It helps when that boyfriend is

Each fall I tear open the September issue to see how sports editor Gary Cole ranks the nation's top college football teams (Playboy's Pigskin Preview). As a die-hard Oklahoma fan, I am stoked to see he finally put us where we belong— at number one. Other fans lend to view the Sooners as overrated, but the truth is we have one of the most prolific pro­grams in collegiate football history, right up there with glorified USC.

As Frank Owen notes in Apoca­lypse 2012 (September), I believe that within the next few years a shift in the magnetic poles will wipe out civiliza­tion. Most of the members of our 2012 Survival and Revival Group plan to escape into the mountains, where we will protect with our lives mankind's technological knowledge. Should that knowledge be lost, humanity will likely revert to barbarism and we will be in a worse situation than uncivi­lized peoples, who can more easily adapt to challenging circumstances. We, on the other hand, have become so cultured we find it difficult to live without comforts.

As a scientist who has spent most of my life studying the ancient Maya, I have for years been receiving e-mails from people who've read articles such as Apocalypse 2012 and want my reassurance the world is not going to end on December 21, 2012. This widespread concern prompted me to write The End of Time: The Maya Mys­tery of 2012, which tells the Maya's side of the story based on archaeological records and documents written prior to the Span­ish conquest. The fact is the Maya were far more interested in the past than the future. The rulers of one of history's most brilliant and enduring civilizations manip­ulated deep lime to establish a historical foundation for their culture and, more

In light of James Auld's letter in the Sep­tember issue, here's a further thought on Perfect Game: How to Fix Baseball (May), in which Bill James argues the sport needs to be sped up: Why should we watch lengthy pitcher-batter duels when the batter loses 80 percent of the time? Instead, move the pitcher's mound back until you get a suf­ficiently entertaining on-base percentage. Then we can turn our attention to raising those sagging basketball rims. Remember when players had to jump to dunk?

From the ubiquitous Hugh Jackman to delicious wine to an awesome modern architecture movement (google "Nar-veno Court"), Australia has lately been chal­lenging the maxim that no history is ever made in the southern hemi­sphere. And then there are the women, gorgeous as the day is long. Up-and-coming model Tegan Woodford, born and bred on the Gold Coast, is one such natural resource. "Gold Coast girls are sexy," she says. "We're tan from all the time we spend on the beach." Tegan has appeared in Australia's major men's mags—Ralph, FHM and Nuts—and is readying herself for an interna­tional spotlight. Hey, you saw her here first.

Lightning Bolt, a Hawaii-based surfboard and apparel company that started in 1972 but later phased out its clothing in the United States, hits the beach again this fall with surfing legend Jonathan Paskowitz as the new boss. The iconic brand returns with a new line just as fellow retro-surf-shorts makers Birdwell and Sundek are likewise making comebacks. It's a move away from below-the-knee, basketball-shorts-length jams over to retro-cool low-riding nylons. And the surf-inspired bikinis don't look half bad either.

(5) RedLaser: Scan bar codes in stores and instantly find out if there are better deals elsewhere.

We're finally getting close to the day when humans will be having sex with machines. Futurologist Ian Yeoman recently predicted that tourists will enjoy disease-free relations with robot prostitutes at artificial, indoor resorts by the year 2050. Can't wait that long? Henrik Christen-sen, director of the Center for Robotics and Intelligent Machines, says men will be boning primitive bots by 2011 ("vibration" and audio will be added to lifelike silicone sex dolls that already exist). For now, we're stuck having plain old sex with real humans. Or are we? See the fu­ture of human-robot lovemaking today in Playboy.com's Wanderlust video series at playboy.com/wanderlust.

Prohibition-era cool never goes out of style when it comes to cocktail emporiums. The lat­est boozy bid to channel a 1920s speakeasy is Philadel­phia's Franklin Mortgage & In­vestment Co. New but already generating national buzz, the subterranean haunt is named after the Philly-based front for underworld boss Max "Boo Boo" Hoff's bootlegging ring back in the day. The FMIC boasts burgundy leather ban­quettes, marble tabletops and vest-wearing bartenders who hand-carve chips from artisan-al ice blocks and expertly pour more than 20 concoctions. Try the pirate's slave—it's truly a thing of booty.

Author CD. Payne struggled for years to get his 1993 novel, Youth In Revolt, into print before going the self-publishing route. The path to a movie version of the cult classic—about a smart, angst-ridden 14-year-old's bizarre life—was nearly as rocky. Fox filmed a 1996 TV pilot that went nowhere, and MTV did no better with a planned miniseries. Now a new film version—starring Michael Cera, Steve Buscemi, Justin Long and Zach Galifianakis—is finally reaching screens some IB years after the book's first edition.

The World According to Irving
[no value]

Jess Walter
There are those authors who > seem compelled to venture back j upstream, to explore the same ' tributaries, to endlessly test the roiling crosscurrents of their own fiction and memory. This sense of revisionist adventurism is both subject and subtext in John Irving's epic 12th novel, Lost Night in Twisted River. This particular journey gets off to a thrilling start with a vigorous burst of storytell­ing at a New Hampshire logging camp, then ranges from Boston to Iowa to Canada before finally set­tling down in the familiar land of Garp, Irving's oft-visited world of prep school wrestling, precocious young writers and symbolic bears. The young writer this time is Danny Baciagalupo, who with his chef fa­ther, Dominic, spends the major­ity of the book as a low-key fugi­tive slowly hunted by a homicidal, and incredibly patient, lawman. Under the pen name Danny Angel he writes books that have a strik­ing resemblance to Irving's own (the fourth one makes him rich; the "abortion book" becomes an acclaimed movie) while his father works in a succession of restaurants.

A lot was riding on the reboot of the beloved Star Trek franchise—includ­ing big bucks and potential Trekkie outrage—but director J.J. Abrams and writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman delivered the warp speed that space-opera fans crave, not to mention one of 2009's most satisfying and profitable summer blockbusters. The best twist is having fiery young rebels James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) duke it out and then hug it out, allowing us to be sucked into a compelling origin story that just happens to have some kick-ass effects sequences. Kirk bedding a hot qreen-skinned babe and a clever

Permanently parked 50 feet up in the jungle canopy, the two-bedroom suite offers views of both the ocean and the jungle, not to mention the chance to order room service to your deck chair atop one of its wings.

Four years ago I moved in with my girlfriend, who was sharing a two-bedroom apartment with a female friend she has known since junior high. The three of us ate meals together and hung out. A few months ago my girl­friend took a job in New York. We both knew a long-distance relationship wouldn't work, so we broke up. She said it would be great if our roommate and I hooked up, and within a few weeks we had. Then things got complicated. My ex's dream job became a nightmare, and she moved back to the apartment. The first night we all got a little drunk. The women were laugh­ing and crying together when my new girlfriend suggested my old girlfriend "borrow" me for the night. I remember thinking we were playing with fire, but I'm also a guy. The next morn­ing I expected fireworks, but ev­erything was cool. Now I switch back and forth. If anything, the arrangement has drawn the women closer. Are there any guidelines to make this last? They both ask me questions such as if I have a favorite and who is better in bed, to which I respond, "You know it's not wise to go there," or "I love this or that about you." I have deeper feelings for my girlfriend of four years, but the sex is more exciting with my girl­friend of a few months. Is hon­esty the best policy here? Is it ever?—A.J., Chicago, Illinois

Shortly after playing a concert ini Reynosa, Mexico, singer Valentin Elizalde was murdered by merce-' naries working for the Guli drug cartel. Elizalde had made enemies with his song "To My Enemies"— a seemingly jovial polka with a catchy tuba line—and on the night oi November 25, 2006 these ene­mies took exception to his song.

These photos were taken at one of the world's largest hand-rolled premium cigar factories—Tabacalera de Garcia in La Romana, Dominican Republic. The morning sun has barely risen over the tropical hills, but already the workers' bicycles line the front of the factory like a chrome snake. Inside, the day is under way. A radio blares American and Latin pop. In the main rolling room, pairs of rollers sit at two-desk wooden tables with all the tools of their trade. Left: A roller starts by bunching the filler leaves before mov­ing on to the binder leaf and mold. The cigars are then pressed. Right: The roller fixes the wrapper around the already-formed shape and size. Last, the cap is added. The tools of the rollers' trade are: la tabla, a wooden cutting board: chaveta. a crescent-shape metal cutter: and a hand guillotine (also known as a cigar cutter or tuck cutter), which ensures a clean-cut foot.

Washington, d.c.-Though change was a buzzword of Barack Obama's campaign, President Obama's on-the-job behavior has sometimes followed George W. Bush's lead. The latest area in which the status quo has pre­vailed involves President Bush's radical interpretation of execu­tive powers. Bush became infa­mous for his prolific use of sign­ing statements, addenda penned on already-passed legislation in which he asserted his right to ignore portions of the new law. Since the Constitution contains no provision for such statements, and since Bush's statements consistently suggested executive power trumped congressional authority, Obama vowed to end the practice when in office. He has not. In fact, top Democrats in the House even sent Obama a letter of rebuke, saying, "During the previous administration, all of us were critical of the president's assertion that he could pick and choose which aspects of congres­sional statutes he was required to enforce. We were therefore cha­grined to see you appear to ex­press a similar attitude."
