56 What's Going On Here? - Catastrophic hurricanes like Katrina are only harbingers of extreme climate changes to come. The fate of humanity, not to mention the rest of the planet's animal and plant life, is already in desperate peril - as shown by the facts presented in this excerpt from what
may be the year's most important book. By Tim Flannery.
70 The Year in Music 2006 - From veterans lighting up the comeback
trail to promising new artists from every genre, the winners in our annual music
poll prove that 2005 was abundant with aural pleasures. We also check out the
rise of Houston hip-hop, ponder the fate of the New Orleans music scene and
reveal which songs members of Smash Mouth, Spoon and other bands were listening
to when they lost their virginity.
96 Playing For Keeps - Here are the things to play with when
playing's the thing. Our ultimate game room has it all: a pool table that would
make Minnesota Fats do sit-ups, a selection of classic pinball and arcade games,
pinup-girl poker chips, a chess set made from auto parts, a high-end backgammon
set (for when Hef comes over), a table hockey game,a Ping-Pong setup, foosball
and more. Don't ever tell us you're bored. BY Joel Johnson.
102 Jeremy Bloom Can't Lose - America's best hope for gold
in Turin could be Jeremy Bloom, a freestyle skier so competitive that he plans
on making his muscular five-foot-nine physique and model's looks from his MTV
gig to the NFL. Meet a man who may have the word limit in his vocabulary
but hasn't much use for it. By Pat Jordan.
78 Sogbo's Wife - An international relief worker assigned to
an African village tries to go native. He falls in love with a married woman
but soon finds his secret affair threatened by racial and cultural clashes -
and a bit of jungle witchcraft. By Tony D'Souza..
The Playboy Forum
41 China Syndrome - Don't blame China for outsourcing. The
country is adopting the latest developments in technology so quickly that it
attracts enormous investments from global corporations. Yet China is losing
large numbers of jobs as well, which goes to show that the creation of a fair
global labour market amid pervasive offshore out-sourcing is one of the great
challenges of our time. By Andrew Ross.
