AJOURE MEN / EDITOR

from the editor LIFE’S SMALLEST DETAILS Sometimes it’s the little things we should rejoice in. Summer in Berlin never really arrived this year, which means we have to to find other things to put us in a good mood. We can’t have everything, so we should focus on seizing the small, beautiful things along the way that make us happy (and we don’t just mean Pokémon). Anyone can be in a bad mood – just not us! Because we’re paying close attention to detail in this issue, it’s inevitable that we look for it in fashion. Oktoberfest is finally here, but for those who’d rather avoid this kind of festival, we have other style details to offer you, from funky sneakers to extreme style combinations that you can pull off these days. What you can’t pull off right now is to be anti-Pokémon. Sure, it’s just hype, and I understand people who are fundamentally opposed to passing trends, but do you always have to be against what’s new? Is it necessary to be negative all the time? Wake up, people. Pay attention to the little details that will affect you positively. Have you ever considered that when it comes to Pokémon Go, you now spend more time outdoors? If you have kids, are you spending more time with them? Have you met or talked to new people who are playing Pokémon Go right nearby? You might have already guessed: I play Pokémon Go and think it’s so much fun! My message to all those complainers: it’s not just about the game, it’s about always being negative. Check out the game yourself or choose some other small detail in the world – resist the urge to bash everything! Someone who’s been doing this right for years is a man with incredibly positive energy –Allen Maldonado, on our cover this month. His personal acting career, his T-shirt company, and the acting classes he funds for at-risk youth are all a part of his unique drive and perseverance. The full interview can be found inside. To perfectly round off the topic of detail, it was very important to me to think about how to give the topic of “lifestyle” a little more depth. We spend a lot of time discussing the idea of lifestyle, but I somehow wonder if we all know what this really means. Our tour into an unknown part of Germany to get the impression of a new world of peace, relaxation, and recovery is found in the article “Out of Town.” I hope that you, along with 3.7 million other Berliners, still catch some sun before the summer is over, and I wish you pleasant reading. Remember: don’t lose sight of the details! Tobias Bojko

Kissing Bearded Men Keeps Women Healthy When it comes to men with beards, women really can’t agree. Some love it, find bearded men attractive and manly, while for others, a man with facial hair is a no-go, especially not in bed. Those of us with beards are convinced that our facial hair is extremely sexy and makes us look better. But how to change a woman’s mind? Science leaps to our defense to deliver a damn good argument for beards. Conclusion: a woman who kisses a bearded man stays healthy longer.

AJOURE MEN / MEN’S GROOMING

It sounds like a joke. But actually, a study by the prestigious University College in London reached this conclusion through an extensive study that was recently published. What exactly motivated the scientists to carry out this investigation, we cannot say. Perhaps it was the ubiquitous hipsters in London, with their penchant for unusual beards. In any case, the researchers discovered that a man’s beard contains lots of healthy bacteria. While kissing a woman (or man, depending on your preferences), these bacteria are transmitted to the other person’s face and provide a health benefit. This finding is, of course, especially surprising because beards are generally considered to be a playground for all kinds of germs. Ever since the 1960s, it was assumed that beards even multiply fungi and E. coli bacteria. Beards were classified as unhygienic, making it no mystery why many women don’t want to go near a man with a beard.

Scientists at the University College in London have now decisively refuted these notions by proving the existence of health-promoting bacteria in beards. As explained in the Journal of Hospital Infection, they tested a total of 408 employees in a hospital, including men with and without beards. The study discovered that men without beards had three times more harmful bacteria on their faces than men with beards. Even more surprising to the participating physicians and microbiologists in Dr. Adam Robert’s study was the discovery of a surprising number of bacteria that can classified as healthy or health-promoting in the whiskers of bearded men. These healthy bacteria can be compared to antibiotics – they fight the agents that cause infectious diseases. The researchers went so far as to conclude that certain diseases such as inflammation of the bladder or pneumonia would occur more rarely in men with beards.

It remains unclear why these health-promoting bacteria thrive so well in a beard or are found there at all. The study’s participating microbiologists did not offer any explanation as to why this occurs. But if you think that this means you should grow a wild, unkempt beard, you’re mistaken. First, you don’t need a full beard to reap the benefits: a mustache is enough. In addition, beards need regular care, which the scientists also confirmed. This includes daily washing and regular trimming. Washing ensures that fats or bits of food are removed, while trimming helps your beard grow healthily and continue to look good. The University College in London’s research offers us new possibilities to make a convincing and successful case for beards. An unexpected new conversation starter: kiss me and I’ll make you healthy. Either way, this study provides plenty to talk about next time you are flirting with a beautiful woman. Because we all know, good flirting depends on the quality of the guy behind the facial hair.

As women do not (generally) have beards, they are left with no choice but to come into the closest possible contact with a man’s beard in order to benefit

from these healthy bacteria. Kissing is the first choice, of course, and the most promising measure by far. Not to mention the health benefits, it’s also just a lot of fun. This is a wonderful health care opportunity for all women, no prescriptions required.

AJOURE MEN / TECHNOLOGY More popular than Tinder, more active users than Twitter, and it keeps users engaged longer than Instagram. Within 48 hours in Australia, it became the most downloaded and high-earning app and in only four hours was in position # 1 on the Apple app charts. Of course, we mean Pokémon Go, the latest game app from Nintendo and Niantic. Welcome to our Pokémon Go Special!

There’s a Pokémon close to you!

Hello! I’m Prof. Willow.

The Right Start

If you want to level up quickly, it’s worth investing in a lucky egg, which doubles your experience points (XP) for 30 minutes. This is very useful at the beginning, because your first captured Pokémon gets you 500 instead of the normal 100 XP. If you want to start evolving your Pokémon right away, lucky eggs also come in handy – the first time you evolve a Pokémon gets you 1000 instead of 500 XP. Then just start walking.

Even in the Pokémon world, the beginning of the game is very important and can help you rise quickly to the top. Professor Willow offers you the choice of which Pokémon you want to start with. You can choose between Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Schiggi, but what many do not know: with a little patience, you can also catch a Pikachu. To do this, walk away from your Trainer four times. On the fifth time, a Pikachu will appear.


AJOURE MEN / TECHNOLOGY

The Capture Begins

Now you can get started finding and capturing Pokémon. Here we’ve included a table that shows which Pokémon types can be found at different locations. Please note that this table is no guarantee: it only shows a greater likelihood that a particular type of Pokémon is spawned in a specific place.

The Perfect Throw Whether or not you can capture a Pokémon depends on your skills. First, touch the Poké Ball without throwing it and wait until you see two circles. Here the smaller circle that changes size is the most important. The color of this circle shows how hard it will be to catch the Pokémon. A green circle means it will be easy. For an orange or red circle, you can use Razz Berries to increase your chances of capturing a Pokémon. You also increase your chances when you throw a curveball, which you do by spinning the ball in front of your throw. The last way to increase your chances is to hit the small circle with your Poké Ball – the smaller the circle, the better the throw. You also get more XP for good throws.

Gyms & Battles Gyms & Battles

Gyms are the only way to get currency in Pokémon Go without paying real money. If you control a Gym, you can press a sign in the top left of your Shop that will give you 10 PokéCoins and 500 Stardust fore each Gym you own. Based on the Gym level, you can see how many Pokémon can fit inside. For example, if you are on Team Mystic (Blue) and see a blue Gym with Level 3 and two Pokémon inside it, you can enter the Gym without a battle or having to protect your Pokémon. Gyms can also be leveled up if you attack them yourself. This increases the Gym level and gets you XP. Battles can be chaotic, but there are some tricks. Your Pokémon’s blue Health Bar bar increases each time you attack. If this bar is full, press down on your opponent to give an extra strong attack. Your Pokémon opponent does this too – the attack is even announced beforehand, which can help you dodge it.

Pokémon Go

A big factor in Pokémon battles are and have always been the type of Pokémon and the type of attack. To help you best attack and defeat your opponents, below is a table that shows how different Pokémon behave and the strengths and weaknesses of each type of attack. A two means very effective, 0.5 means not very effective, and a zero means that the attack has no effect. It if has no number, that means that nothing special happens. To read this table properly, take note that here the left-hand column of Pokémon are attacking the row above.


AJOURE MEN / TECHNOLOGY

Evolve & Strengthen Your Pokémon

To power up your Pokémon, you should wait until you have strong Pokémon. This way you won’t waste Stardust. The semi-circle around the Pokémon shows the maximum CP points, which rises with your Trainer Level. Evolving a Pokémon gets you 500 XP. If you want to level up quickly, try to capture Pokémon until you can evolve several. Do not forget to use a lucky egg.

To develop and strengthen Pokémon, you need Candy and Stardust. You get three Candy each time you capture a Pokémon – this Candy is specific to the type of Pokémon. You will also get another 100 Stardust for each capture. There are Pokémon who need 12 Candy to be evolved; for others, you need 25, 50 or 100 Candy. Maiigkarp requires 400. To evolve your Pokémon, it’s always important to take the Pokémon with the largest combat power (CP). If you are patient enough, it’s worth it to wait until you can evolve your Pokémon twice in a row. This is tough, but pays off – it takes a long time to gather enough Candy, but you will probably have stronger Pokémon if you evolve them twice in a row.

The Future of Pokémon Go Future updates will allow Pokémon trading, as well as battles between Trainers without having to control Gyms. We are waiting for more news on to the inclusion of legendary Pokémon, shown in the trailer as possibly part of a community event. Whether or not they will be available in the game is still unclear.

Pokémon GO is a game that has quickly cast the entire world under its spell. You can now buy strong accounts for several hundred euros, and job advertisements for committed Pokémon Trainers are also appearing online. Where this all will lead, we have to wait and see.

PRIVATE CAR SHARING

refer to two things: first, that the car is shared among relatives, acquaintances, friends, neighbors, or colleagues; or, that the car is available for shared use between two non-business locations. This system is similar to peer to peer credit, a system in which online portals allow individuals to lend money to other individuals as an alternative to the commercial loans from banks.

☞ Private car sharing works similarly. Its use has been growing in Germany since 2010 in cities throughout the country. It is made possible by modern technology like the Internet, smartphones, and car sharing apps. Companies like Tamyca, Nachbarschaftsauto.de, and Autonetzer.de were among the first start-ups to facilitate car shar-

ing. Nachbarschaftsauto.de and Autonetzer.de then merged to form Germany’s largest online platform for private car sharing. At the end of 2014, French supplier Drivy entered the German market for private car sharing and six months later, bought Autonetzer.de.

☞ Car sharing has already established itself in everyday life. Unlike commercial car rental service providers, car sharing is a brief, often only one-hour car rental. Today it is used mainly for work purposes, both supplied and hired by companies. Private car sharing, however, has recently received attention in the media and online. “Private” in this sense can

☞ Over the last few years, Drivy has become the European benchmark for private car sharing. Around the same time that Drivy acquired Autonetzer. de, they also bought Livop in France. Only a few months later, Drivy began to buy up the Spanish market. The company raised the necessary capital for this expansion, about 50 million euros, through several crowdfunding and fundraising campaigns. Drivy began offering its services in Belgium and Austria mid 2016. ☞ This is clearly just the beginning of car sharing. Once startups are successful, established companies begin to pick up the scent of sales and profits. A good example of how this will evolve can be taken from the recent intercity bus market in Germany. After the initial euphoria, most trailblazer companies have disappeared from the market, either bought up or have gone bankrupt. In their place, travelers now find big companies quickly becoming household names. A similar process will probably take place in the coming years when it comes to private car sharing. Drivy acts and expands wisely and appropriately: currently around 12,000 cars are available on Drivy’s online platform for private carsharing. Automakers and insurers will soon be brought on as partners to guarantee technical advances and reduced risk.

sharing. Car owners and renters are both equally aware of the brand. Current challenges in car sharing including drop-off and pick-up of the vehicle key. At the moment, this doesn’t work very differently from a physical car rental location. In the future, for the cost of a few hundred euros, cars will be equipped with a reader and access chip. Smartphones and apps are crucial for communication between owners and renters: every transaction can be completed online, on the go, spontaneously and in any location. Reviewing driver’s licenses, IDs, and proof of insurance all happen online.

☞ Surveys show that the average shared car is used by twenty different users. With 30,000 vehicles available, that means 600,000 customers take advantage of car sharing offers on Drivy. The behavior of younger drivers holds the future for private car sharing. For them, being a driver no longer means you own your own car. In fact, just the opposite: young generations are critical and realistic about the relationship between price and frequency of use when purchasing a car. They rely on public transport and use a car only when absolutely necessary, aware that a car sitting in the garage wastes money on car payments and insurance. Having a car is no longer a status symbol; now it’s just a means of transportation to be used only when needed.

[GAMEVICE] We‘ve been addicted to phone games since the invention of smartphones. If you love gaming on your iPhone or iPad, heads up – today we’re taking a look at the new Gamevice controller.

The Gamevice controller for the iPad looks a lot like the Wii U GamePad. It has two controller elements connected by an elastic plastic bridge. For the iPhone, the controller and the bridge fold like an accordion to fit easily into your pocket, which unfortunately, the iPad version doesn’t do. Like conventional controllers, the left side has a D-pad and a standby button. There is an analog stick on each side and four face buttons labeled A,

B, Y, X, and a button to pause the game. The two standard shoulder and trigger buttons are on the back of the controller. In addition to the buttons, there is a micro USB port to charge the device while playing and a headphone jack. The Gamevice controller costs 100 euros, a fairly high price compared with other controllers. The design and quality seem to

justify its ticket price to some extent. But beware: although the Gamevice is currently compatible with all main devices, new devices like the iPhone 7 might require a different type of controller. It’s possible that your 100 euros will not get you long term playing time. Once you have the controller, you can use the Gamevice Live App to check out all


AJOURE MEN / TECHNOLOGY compatible games at a glance. Once you have found the app you want, you will be forwarded directly to the App Store. How Does the Gamevice Actually Perform?

Surprisingly, the biggest problem with Gamevice has nothing to do with the product itself. There are simply too few games that are compatible with the controller. Lots of classics are missing and some do not work well with the controls. These problems could be resolved, but we doubt that large gaming companies will be willing to cooperate.

The Gamevice has an extremely attractive quality and design. Only when you look to the future should you first hesitate at the price. Unfortunately, it won’t turn your iPad or iPhone into a PS4; the games that would really get you addicted are currently still missing or not well implemented. However, the smaller, simpler games feel completely different with this controller and can be played much more easily. Whether the Gamevice fulfills its promise lies in the eye of the beholder. We have mixed feelings: it’s fun, but for the price, we would have liked more – especially our favorite games.

Simple or short games like Traffic Racer or Rayman games are great throughout their entire duration. Gamevice gives us a completely different game experience that makes smartphone gaming more interesting. The typical input errors common in touch screen games are now eliminated by using the controller. However, for larger, more intensive games like Modern Combat or Grand Theft

Auto, we found the control to be slightly cumbersome, especially when it came to shooting. The controller sensitivity allows it to adapt to many games, but aiming was always slightly off.

Tech City Berlin 5G, here we come In the past few years, Berlin has evolved into the German capital for technological innovation and startups. Young and emerging businesses flourish in the German equivalent of California’s Silicon Valley. This growth is matched by questions as to how the capital can meet these demands technologically. An important step would definitely be an Internet speed

upgrade, a reason why many are rallying around the idea of 5G for Berlin. There are now concrete plans as to how high speed mobile Web can be brought to the largest possible area of the capital.

Internet Today in Berlin and Germany Although Germany has the highest GDP in Europe, it is behind when it comes to Internet and network development. Countries like Estonia have better coverage and faster Internet. The main reason for Germany’s lack of the latest Internet standard is that expansion in recent years has not been promoted consistently. Given technological developments, this now poses a problem. More and more modern technology relies on the Internet. This doesn’t only apply to GPS-based services or smartphone users. Developments in cooling technology, smart homes, and even the automotive industry require good infrastructure and high-speed Internet.

Why Berlin for the Introduction of 5G?

Berlin offers a metropolis with a high population that can test the demand. Germany and Berlin have been working on a solution for several months and recently paired with Deutsche Telekom to help in the research and the citywide introduction With the current level of Internet, there will be long-term prob- of 5G. The location of the Berlin-based company is also an imlems in these different fields and services. Although LTE is cur- portant factor in the choice of a testing center.

A solution should bring a new young companies whose solutions and services will benefit from quality standard, and the push for 5G is visible in the capital as the introduction of 5G. The first introduction and test sites will the next infrastructure improvement for the mobile web. be in certain areas around universities and in Charlottenburg, where towers will be installed in the coming months. The date of What Is 5G and Why Do We Need It? a real launch has not yet been announced.

How Likely Is an Introduction of 5G in the Near Future? In the US there are several solutions that go beyond the speed and performance of LTE, though a truly comprehensive solution for 5G has not yet been found. For the first time, providers seem to have reached their limits, which also has to do with the non-permanent availability of the radio signal spectrum. In order to introduce higher speed Internet throughout Germany, it will be important that the Federal Network Agency provides the various licenses to sellers. It will still be months, if not years, until users can surf on mobile devices with speeds of up to 1 GB/s. Until then, LTE will remain the standard for mobile Web.

The term 5G actually refers to a new generation of technology that has not yet been precisely defined. Most users are familiar with 3G, 4G, or LTE, which can also be used on smartphones. But because these speeds are very limited for Internet transmission through radio signal and don’t provide high speeds, a new advancement for the Internet is now being widely studied. Companies all over the world are working to facilitate new lines that facilitate mobile network speeds through fiber optics in normal Internet lines. This would significantly increase the previous limit of 300 MB/s on mobile networks. These lines would be able to take on high loads as more and more people browse on smartphone and tablets and accomodate new technological innovations. One of the primary test centers will take place in Berlin.

Instagram Story In recent years, Snapchat’s popularity has skyrocketed, and not without good reason. The company saw a gap in the market and addressed it with great success. Snapchat provides a new way of communicating that previously didn’t exist by allowing us to be closer to real life action. We all know that companies like successful concepts. On August 2, a new Instagram feature called “Instagram Stories” was announced. We’ve already heard of “Stories” from Snapchat. With the Stories feature, you can save videos and photos in a folder called “My Story.” Friends can click on your Story and see your shared images from the last 24 hours in chronological order. You can see who has looked at what part of your Story and can choose who is allowed to view it. You can also see all your Stories at a glance along with the available effects that Snapchat offers for designing your Story. The concept for Instagram Stories is the same. Copying an idea might not be a huge problem; it depends on how the Facebook-owned company implements their new feature. Below is a table that compares the two Story functions.

DURATION

The table shows some small but important differences. When it comes to design, Snapchat remains the undisputed winner, but the difference in video and image quality is especially interesting. Here Instagram clearly wins, along with the option to flip back through pages. Who hasn’t watched a story one hundred times only to see a single image? Imitation? Definitely! But it’s clear that the developers thought about how to improve Stories. With Instagram, the new Snapchat Story does have some competition, but the question is whether that would really cause Snapchat users to change their app. Germans are not a change-friendly folk, so the update for current users of Instagram is a hit, while Snapchat users will probably ignore it. But let’s face it: didn’t we all already install both apps? We see the Instagram Story as a great new update. Whether the two very different apps are in competition is unclear. Most people use both apps every day, so the update as a reason to switch apps doesn’t seem likely.

Allen Maldonado #

How did start your acting career? Was it always your dream to become an actor?

I started as young kid from the Vineyards Apartments, a rough pocket of Rialto, CA, with a curiosity for acting. That led me to Hollywood and I eventually landed a role on The Young and the Restless. I decided to become an actor to provide for my mom and family.

#

In addition to being an actor, you also run a record company, a production company, and a T-shirt line. Where do you dedicate more of your energy, to acting or to your businesses?

Acting is a business; I treat them all the same. I have clear business plans for each that I work on relentlessly every day to complete. My T-shirt company Vineyards Phinest gives a portion of its proceeds to provide free acting classes for foster kids and at-risk youth. Get it Done Records has provided music for shows such a Ray Donovan, House of Lies, and Carl’s Jr’s latest campaign with The Rams’ Todd Gurley.

classes. What inspired you to start this project?

As a kid, my biggest influence was my mom. But it took more than her to help me maneuver through the obstacles of my neighborhood. Several individuals around my neighborhood helped influence and guide me in the right direction in life, so I understand the importance of mentorship in a community. Demo Nerds provides free acting classes to foster kids and at-risk youth.  
 What made you decide to branch out from acting?

#

All of my businesses revolve around acting, so it was a natural process as my career began to grow.

Of all the different movies and series you’ve acted in – which role was the most meaningful?

Wow, that’s a tough question. I believe it’s a combination of all my roles, from The Equalizer with Denzel Washington to Straight Outta Compton, to Survivor’s Remorse, to the now Emmy-nominated Black-ish, that have contributed to my career taking off at the moment.

What life lessons have you learned from your job?

Success isn’t suggested, it’s demanded! 
 What is your dream role and who would be your co-star?

Bob Marley would be my dream role. Leonardo DiCaprio would star opposite of me. 
 What do you do in your free time?

10 Unusual Characteristics of

Billionaires $$$$

Today there are 1,810 people in the world with assets worth at least a billion dollars. Ten years ago, there were only 793 people on the planet with this amount of wealth. But don’t let the statistics get you down, give up the fight, or throw away your dreams. You can also get in line with the rich and feel like you’re made of money. Here are the secret characteristics of billionaires.

Strong Family Support Of course, good fortune is to some extent just luck, and you can’t force it. Most of us take our time before rushing into something like marriage, and even fewer meet the requirements necessary to get into a billionaire’s bed. Nevertheless, 87% of the richest Earthlings are married and 63% of them have three or more children. At first glance, this is surprising: everyone says that a family and a career are incompatible. What many overlook, though, is the bond between these stressed managers and their sweethearts. Coming home late at night to your beloved is the perfect escape from the everyday rush, and it’s priceless for a husband to know he can count on his wife to understand him. It’s a privilege to be able to share his pain, his sorrow, and his joy with her, even just his thoughts. Watching the glowing eyes of a child at Christmas right before the gifts are given makes any heart leap, and this helps young billionaires reach new goals. Billionaires work less for themselves and more for those who will inherit their kingdoms.

A Colorful Past The things that scare hiring managers seem to be to billionaires’ advantage, like dropping out of school or college. Fourteen percent of the 100 richest Earthlings lack a university degree. But your brilliance is not enough: you have to be able to put lofty ideas into action. Billionaires are not affected by gossip and they avoid well-trodden paths. That doesn’t mean you should drop the idea of a tech or business degree from an elite university. Harvard and Stanford are known for producing the technical geniuses who may be the

future’s billionaires.

Unwavering Determination Not all of us are destined to shake the foundations of tradition and break with our parents’ expectations, at least not during the time it takes to get a degree. The determination with which billionaires tackle the realization of their ideas is worthy of the highest respect. They have a vision, make decisions, and trust their instincts. If it sounds right, don’t think twice.

An Unmatchable Focus Billionaires don’t try to do everything. Although they may have a zillion ideas, they are always on point. They concentrate on their core business and give it all their attention. Of course, you will encounter them in workshops and seminars here and there, but maybe only because they are interested in people like you. Crucial to billionaires’ long-term success is their ability to delegate tasks, which they can only achieve if they have capable people like you on the payroll. You can take it for granted that those who gain a billionaire’s trust first have to prove themselves. Resounding success is rarely due to a solo performance; no one can do everything. Bringing you on board might be the foundation for the next billion-dollar company.

A Keen Sense of the Market It isn’t a coincidence that Steve Jobs remains in our memories as one of the greatest marketing geniuses of all time. He understood the market and re-invented the wheel completely anew. If you want to come into wealth, you have to get a new product or service on the market. You will only get membership in the billionaire club if you really revolutionize the world and walk in Steve Jobs’s footsteps. Taking a cue from him really won’t hurt: billionaires study the successes of others meticulously. They crave information and are grateful for any tip that advances them even one

Understanding of Mistakes The nonchalance with which billionaires take on problems is probably their greatest asset. Billionaires are not afraid to walk the talk. Of course, this drive doesn’t mean they don’t make any mistakes. It’s not that billionaires don’t face obstacles. Of course they do, but they see mistakes as something to learn from. It is always better to get things up and running than spend three days assuming everything could go wrong. Feedback is crucial, from their employees, but above all, from customers. There is no shortage of reactions, but trailblazers always place the blame for shortcomings on themselves. Constant feedback also gives the opportunity to improve products beyond what the competitor offers. Continuous product improvement is one reason why entrepreneurs end up with so much money.

Glasses Instead of Hair

AJOURE MEN MAGAZINE PAGE:

Billionaires don’t have hair, period. Whether it runs in the family or is a result of stress, we aren’t really sure. Maybe 41 of the 100 richest people wear glasses as consolation for their lack of hair. Near-sightedness is easier to explain than baldness. After all, it would be a miracle if the incessant compulsion to acquire new information by reading did not eventually leave its mark.

A Geographical Advantage The fact that Americans have long had the edge in producing billionaires has much to do with their business philosophy. Besides the US, it is obviously beneficial to be a resident of China, Germany, France or Russia.

The Male Gender The billionaire club appears to be a male domain – only eight women are among the 100 richest people in the world. Most of the top female billionaires have inherited their wealth, but they are not representative of all the super rich. Overall, 69% of billionaires are self-made businesspeople.

A Sign from the Stars

2016

If you follow astrology, it gets kind of interesting. If you’re Aquarius, you’ve got a good chance, but if you’re a Cancer: not so much. The likelihood that you’ll be a billionaire as an Aquarius is 12.5 percent, while Cancers have only a 5.9 percent chance. We’ll let you decide what lessons you can draw from this hodgepodge assortment of billionaire characteristics. Unfortunately, we can’t get you the right Zodiac sign or a Chinese or American passport. We do recommend, however, that you don’t let adverse circumstances dissuade you from your goals. Perhaps that is the real key to success. Photo: Astronaut Images; Ronnie Kaufman / Getty Images

OUT OF

Is it all just too much some days? You missed the train and had to explain to your boss why you arrived late again; everything is happening at the same time; everyone needs something from you ASAP; and during your lunch break the noise of people and traffic means you don’t get to unwind even for five minutes? We feel your pain!

We at AJOURE´ decided to research how to best restore our sense of balance. We knew this trip should be quiet, for men only, and a real chance to relax. We looked for a destination that wasn’t a typical vacation hotel where other travelers could stress us further. We wanted to explore an unknown region without having to drive across all of Germany, and so we opted for the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern region.

We spend so much time talking about lifestyle, well-being, and vacation, but we rarely get out of the city rush. We’ve considered moving into a new apartment in a quieter neighborhood, but that idea just floats around without going anywhere. We ask ourselves over and over, why don’t we just get out of the city and breathe a little? Maybe head to a little house on the lake or a small place by the beach. Will we be able to recover there?

Because no one was familiar with the region, we had the latest technology to help: all bikes were equipped with the latest TomTom Rider. To keep us true to our goal, we opted for two destinations. The first was: Krakow am See Here is a new world of peace, relaxation and houses on the lake. Here we could experience a new dimension of relaxation, in small houses for only 275,000 euros, prices you can only dream about in Berlin. The first highlight was our amazement at the location: it’s a postcard of calm, from Nordic walking, jogging, biking, and hiking trails along the lake to a beautiful golf course nearby. The talk was of fishing, riding across the water, jogging, biking, and spending the evening at the BBQ. Here is an impressive piece of earth; we would have would have liked to stay the night, but our tour continued on.

With all these new ideas in mind, we continued toward Hohen Demzin and to the Burg Schlitz Palace Hotel. Our TomTom Rider GPS proposed this destination, which we had not thought of. Here we plunged headlong into another world of wellness and left full of incredibly good food and fine wine. This luxury hotel exceeds its own reputation for splendor. The evening was filled with conversations on how to do something more for one’s personal well-being and to use the trip as the first stepping stone toward that end. Whether to buy a holiday home in the region or just rent something, and which friends we would want to enjoy it with; these conversations carried on throughout the evening.

Wellness for the Spirit There are calm places where we just feel at home. Far from the noise of everyday life, even a short amount of time at these locations is enough to return home rejuvenated. Powerful places like these don’t require an overdone amount of wellness paraphernalia. The new owners of Burg Schlitz, located in the heart of the Mecklenburg Switzerland, in the middle of the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern state, know this well. In order to rediscover yourself, what you most need is peace and serenity. A proximity to nature encourages your recovery process and ensures that any new ideas have the space to take off. At the Burg Schlitz, you can book varying relaxation treatment programs or just book a room at the castle and do as you please. For many guests, Burg Schlitz is a magical place – a piece of heaven on earth. You won’t stumble upon this place by accident. But if you succumb to its charm, you will keep coming back. Every time of the year has its own special feeling, and city dwellers will become seasoned regulars, whether collecting mushrooms, watching wildlife in large landscaped parks behind the hotel, or sitting daydreaming beneath old trees. “When time stands still, our spirits leap with joy and we discover the simple things in life again,“

says Burg Schlitz owner Mr. Armin Hoeck. Sports enthusiasts will find a haven in untouched countryside around the castle for horseback riding and cycling, jogging, hunting, walking, and hiking. There are also fish ponds and numerous lakes close by. In bad weather, you can enjoy the indoor pool, sauna and steam room and be pampered at the Spa & Wellness Lounge. Partner Pharmos Natur offers a Green Luxury Day SPA. Alkalize, detoxify, and rejuvenate through the power of selected plants. Holistic, sensory, and sustainable is the basis for your beauty and wellness treatment at Burg Schlitz. Burg Schlitz boasts a total of 20 spacious, stylish rooms and suites. There is plenty of room to relax for a cozy reading adventure with a cup of tea. The kitchen is rustic and elegant – upscale but not out of touch. You can already look forward to the prospect of fresh meat from your own hunting excursion and fish from the Müritz lake, in addition to the seasonal delights and unforgettable delicacies that the region produces. Burg Schlitz is a 1.5-hour drive from Berlin and Hamburg and also be reached easily from the Rostock-Laage Airport.

What about sexual enhancers?

Too much biking and tight underwear are not good because they put pressure on the testicles. Alcohol is trickier. Drinking a small amount before sex (for example, a glass of wine) can have a stimulating effect. Large quantities can kill your erection, make you sluggish, and dull your senses. We also recommend you avoid super hot baths – high temperatures can also damage the testes.

If you have problems in bed, talk to your partner about it. In a good relationship, she will show understanding and support. Your ability to get and maintain an erection can also be trained through regular masturbation and a healthy lifestyle, but the effects only become apparent when you practice these techniques regularly and for sustained period of time. Always consult your doctor about sexual enhancement supplements and never order online – the health risk is not worth it.

We’ve all been there: a glance, a light touch, and your heart starts pounding wildly. Is she just friendly or does she want something more? Here are the signs she’s really into you.

Body language often says a lot more than words. Most women act cool, but their body language betrays their true intentions. If she leans forward when talking to you, her physical closeness shows clear interest. And then, a classic: she’s playing with her hair. Whether it’s from slight nervousness or she’s being flirty – her attention is on you. If a woman is interested in you, she smiles when you look at her or bites her lower lip gently. Her body is mostly facing you and isn’t blocked by crossed arms.

Sign 1: Clear Body Language


AJOURE MEN / EROTIC Sign 2: A Date? Sure! “Hey, do you want to meet in an hour at the nice restaurant around the corner?” – “Sure!” It’s been a long day and she still wants to meet you, despite the comfortable sofa calling her name at home – this is real proof that she likes you. She answers right away; she isn’t playing hard-to-get. It’s also a good sign when she spontaneously asks you out during stressful periods. She takes the initiative at every opportunity. Sign 3: She Laughs a Lot Jokes are always a good idea to break up a somewhat awkward situation. But not everyone is good at telling jokes. Sometimes you realize after the fact how bad your joke really was. That’s embarrassing. But she laughs anyway, even when your jokes are terrible. Definitely a good sign! Just laugh along. Sign 4: Her Friends Know as Much About You as She Does If she really likes you, you will be the favorite conversation topic with her friends. Your favorite food, color, and your outfit on the last date: they know everything. If you run into her with her friends in the city and they make pointed comments, giggle, or look at you hard, you know she’s really into you. Be nice to her friends! Maybe they will give you a few tips on how to win her heart. Sign 5: Deeper Discussions

someone in a crowd, or on the bus or train. But if you are interested in a woman, you should pay close attention to how and when she touches you. If you are sitting in a movie theater, your legs can touch easily. If she doesn’t move her leg away, she wants to be close. The same goes if she touches you lightly on the shoulder or hits your arm playfully. Sign 8: She is Everywhere You go running around the city after work, and suddenly you meet her by chance. You start talking and immediately arrange for your next date. What a coincidence, right? Maybe it wasn’t. Lots of women ask about the habits of their love interest in order to casually run across his path. This is definitely a good sign – it means that she likes to see and be with you. Of course, these signs do not apply to all women. Even if a woman shows some of these signs, it does not mean necessarily mean that she is into you. And even if a woman does not show these signs, she may still be in love with you. Good luck and have fun!

Admirer

Conversations about the terrible weather or awkward silences are not uncommon, especially at the very beginning of a relationship. But it’s a great sign when you get past the most surface levels of conversation. She tells you about her childhood, embarrassing things that have happened to her, or her bad habits. That is the signal for you to bring up some of your weaknesses and shortcomings. If both partners are open to each other, the result is a comfortable sense of familiarity. Sign 6: She Remembers Everything It’s nice when people listen; it makes you feel important and understood. It’s especially nice when your listener brings back small fragments of past conversations. If you mentioned a while ago that you love a certain band and she proposes that you go to a concert together, you know that you are very important to her. Sign 7: “Accidental” Touching Touching is normal in everyday life, whether shaking hands, or accidentally brushing past

You’ve been together happily for years, share plans for the future, but suddenly you notice that the sex is getting monotonous.

What to Do When Sex Gets BORING


AJOURE MEN / EROTIC

Nr.1

Outdoors: at the lake, a parking lot, or in the car To get back that long-lost thrill, look for a quiet spot on the lake, at the park, in the forest, or in the car. The mere thought that you might get caught makes sex suddenly new and different. Even if the excitement and nervousness means you don’t get a full erection, it doesn’t matter – the whole thing is still exciting, fun, and even funny. You’ve known your partner for years, and she knows that you have no real issues getting it up. It’s all good.

Nr.2

Sex in the video booth In many cities in Germany, there are sex booths for individuals or couples. Every well-equipped sex shop has sex booths in the entrance area that you can use to masturbate. These booths can bring new excitement into your sex life via the thrill of being seen or heard during sex. Customers regularly walk right outside the door and might hear you from outside. The doors have locks, but to heighten the danger, you could try only closing it without locking. Maybe a porn booth visitor will happen by and pull open the door to watch you!

Nr.3

Adult movie theaters To increase the intensity, you can also go to an open porn movie theater. In most adult movie theaters there will definitely be more men, so when you walk by as a couple, all eyes will be on you. Even as you walk through the theater entrance, everyone will be trailing you in the vicarious hope of sharing in your sexy adventure. Now you can decide whether you want a private room, or whether to let others witness your fun. This depends entirely on what turns you on.

Nr.4

Role Play Role play is not for everyone – at the beginning it might seem ridiculous. There are countless ways to role play that you two can try out together, but make sure that both of you are playing along and not just dying of laughter. Some examples of role play are: student and teacher, prostitute and client, shy man and experienced, strict woman, and more. Talk beforehand about fantasies that you’ve been wanting to try out.

Nr.5

Swinger Club The abundance of swinger clubs in Germany offer the chance to get even just a taste of this world. Many people think that going into a swinger club means you have to engage in something sexual with other club visitors. There are also still myths that swinger clubs linked to prostitution and always dirty. The good news is that this is not the case! In every swinger club there are clear rules, such as: anything can happen, but nothing has to. That means you can visit a club with your partner and totally ignore the other visitors! You can even just look, dance, or sit at the bar having a drink, and if you don’t like it, leave. If you feel like it, you two can also have sex without interacting with others in the club. No matter what, this is extremely exciting and brings new drive into your sex life.

Nr.7

Sex with a Third Partner Whether you want a second woman or man along in your sex life depends again on your conversations. Many of us have played with the idea of a threesome, the chance to experience what the other sex feels or explore bicuriosity. Again, you should talk to your partner in depth beforehand, so that no jealousy or drama threatens to end your partnership! Always remember: a sexual partner (male or female) that you bring into your sex life is merely an enhancement to what you already have. If either of you lose interest, you should stop and send him or her home.

The most important thing in your relationship is that you talk to each other openly. Tell your partner how you are currently feeling in bed and ask her if she feels the same. If you both want to make a change, you can begin to try out new sexual ideas. If your partner is not (or still not) willing, then stand by her and do not force the conversation!

Nr.6

Sex in Public Sex in public is a thrill par excellence. However, please be aware that it is illegal to have sex in public places. This also includes oral sex or being naked in public. Although a quickie in the department store changing room or a blowjob at the movie theater can be very enticing, it can have consequences!

The Safe Sex Revolution

AJOURE MEN / EROTIK

THE LELO HEX™

Some Background Cave paintings from the Stone Age suggest that the first signs of male contraceptives existed millennia ago. Our early ancestors used sheep casings and related animal membranes for prevention. In 1855, American Charles Goodyear invented the first rubber condom with a thickness of 2mm and a seam. The first seamless condom was manufactured in 1912. About 30 years later, the first condom made of latex was produced. Nowadays condoms are available in different sizes and countless variations. Whether ribbed, studded, with fruity aromas, ultrasensitive, or extra wet – there is something for everyone. Nevertheless, there has been no major innovation in condom technology for more than 70 years. The HEX ™ condom, the latest product from intimate lifestyle company LELO, is about to change that.

Why Are Condoms So Annoying? Discomfort: It’s too tight here, and here too loose. It pinches. We all know this. Condoms don’t adapt well. The Risk of Slippage: When you have to constantly check that the condom is still there, it’s hard to concentrate on where your head should be.

4

Statistics show that the number of infections from sexually transmitted diseases has risen rapidly in recent years as a result of a decreasing use of condoms. The problem isn’t about a lack of awareness, education, or the availability of condoms – it’s about how unattractive they are! Many find them unpleasant and feel they dramatically take the pleasure out of sex. Now LELO seems to have found a solution.

4

The Real Test: Unwanted pregnancies as a result of broken condoms are more than just cliché! The thin, insufficient structure of condoms makes this danger ever-present.

4

What’s Behind the LELO HEX ™? We’ve already mentioned it: structure. “It wasn’t the latex material that needed to be changed. It was the structure itself,” says LELO. You might have heard of graphene, the thinnest and strongest material known to science. Graphene has a hexagonal structure that can also be seen in honeycomb, insect eyes, and snowflakes. The arrangement of the hexagons forms a symmetrical and incredibly strong structure. The LELO HEX ™ has embraced this advantage. It combines a 0.055mm HEX™ web with ultra-thin 0.045mm latex panels. With 350 identical hexagons, each condom proves its thinness and strength in this groundbreaking innovation.

What Are the Advantages?

Robustness and comfort: The hexagons that form the con dom create a masterful mosaic that adapts to the shape of the wearer and provide a comfortable fit and an impressive stability, which means you won’t have to give a single thought to possible contraceptive damage. You can enjoy your pleasure to the fullest!

Safety and sensation: The condom has a raised texture on the inside, which minimizes slipping while maximizing sensitivity.

HEX Appeal was launched on June 13, 2016 with the task of getting people to test the modern condom and report on their experiences. It has never been so important to spread the message of safe sex, as sexually transmitted diseases become increasingly common. Every day, more than one million people are infected, while condom use – the undisputedly most reliable protection against unwanted pregnancies and STIs – dwindles.

Go ahead: experience the difference and say no to STIs!

Boost your Self-Esteem:

10 Easy Steps Self-esteem is the basis for a satisfying life. Someone who believes in his own possibilities and capabilities makes his way more easily through difficult times and possesses an inner shield against the struggles of life. But what is self-esteem made of? Californian psychotherapist Nathaniel Branden describes the world as a cold and scary place if we are unable to believe in our own abilities and regard ourselves lovingly. Recognition and appreciation from others plays an important role in this. Someone who is recognized feels more secure and better prepared to meet demands. Poor self-esteem means that we doubt ourselves more easily and do not feel as prepared for life. This often has its roots in childhood and our relationships with our parents. Parents are our primary guardians and give us a positive sense of our own worth, establish security, and inner strength. If parents are not respectful to their children, if they tease and make fun of them, the result can be unhealthy self-esteem and a strong inner critic. This creates the feeling that they are not perfect or lovable as they are, and generates a tendency toward self-doubt. The Inner Critic and Self-Esteem People with low self-esteem have internalized negative experiences with their guardians and are more prone to selfdoubt. The inner voice takes the role of a parent who devalues their child. They are led by this voice to focus on their

own weaknesses and mistakes, and have trouble accepting compliments and enjoying positive experiences. They are reluctant to be the center of attention and expect rejection from their environment. When others do not respond positively, they feel they have done something wrong, even if it is not true. They are always looking unconsciously for evidence of their own inadequacy. This highly critical attitude has serious consequences for self-esteem and leads to a vicious circle. People with poor self-esteem do not take risks because they are so insecure about reaching their goals. Someone without a strong sense of self-worth is dependent on others for a sense of recognition and bases his actions on a fear of rejection or a desire to please. The result is a feeling of disappointment or resentment when recognition does not come from the outside. Healthy self-esteem includes a positive inner self-image. This can be strengthened through 10 simple steps. 10 Easy Steps to Overcome Self-Doubt and Boost Self-Esteem 1. Accept Compliments People with self-esteem problems struggle to accept compliments and often assume that praise is not genuine because they are so used to self-doubt. A compliment is something to enjoy and take to heart! This is an important step towards establishing more positive self-esteem.

2. Don’t Compare Yourself with Others Constantly comparing yourself to other people also promotes self-doubt and leads to unhappiness, the feeling you have done something wrong, you don’t deserve success, or that you put others on a pedestal. It is better to have your self-esteem come from within and not be dependent on being better than others. 3. Focus on Your Abilities Everyone has special abilities and talents. Focus on your strengths and your positive experiences. You don’t need to convince yourself of how great you are; just hone your perception on concrete positive experiences. If you really can’t think of any, it’s because you are in still in defense mode. Ask your family or friends to give you feedback. 4. Celebrate Small Achievements Focus on achievable goals and make conscious progress on them. The increase in awareness of what contributes to successes will significantly contribute to your faith in your abilities. For example, participate in staff meetings at work and make suggestions. Positive recognition motivates you to create more positive experiences.


AJOURE MEN / ADVICE

5. Prepare Yourself Beforehand for Critical Situations

out the company of positive-minded people instead.

Everyone experiences situations where your self-esteem will cave, in the face of insulting comments or rejection from others. Think about the most commonly occurring experience and reflect on how you reacted and how you would have liked to respond. Set boundaries for yourself that no one can cross and play out this situation in your head. This will make you feel more secure.

9. Enjoy Success and Give Yourself Praise

6. Rein in Your Inner Critic When you’re being relentless with yourself and can only see yourself as a failure, look at the situation as an outsider. How would you have reacted if your friend had experienced the same situation? Most people are more empathic with others than with themselves. Try treating yourself as you would treat a friend.

There are many things that you’ve achieved that you haven’t adequately recognized yourself for. People with low self-esteem pay more attention to the negative aspects in their lives. Change that – focus on the positive moments. 10. Do Things That You Enjoy Things we like to do fulfill us, especially when they also align with our values. If we do things that are contrary go against our inner nature, it will make us unhappy in the long run.

7. Help Other People Psychology experiments indicate that people who encourage and help others strengthen their own self-esteem. Contributing to others also makes you feel good. 8. Spend Time with Positive People People who surround themselves with others who nag and criticize will be influenced by their moods, more focused on the negative aspects of any situation, and lose the overall outlook. Small things turn into big problems in your head. Seek

Things Successful

People Do BeforeBed

Some people seem to pull it all off. But they are successful not only because they work hard and are lucky. It’s because they share some of the same bedtime habits. We’ve put together some helpful tips to help you reach your maximum success potential. ☞ SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE:

SPEND TIME OUTSIDE After work or just before going to bed, a short walk in the park can work miracles. You’ll notice right away how easily you calm down. Fresh air often makes you sleepy, which will help you doze off more quickly.

WRITE DOWN YOUR THOUGHTS Productive and successful people write down their thoughts and feelings at the end of the day and try to analyze why things went right or wrong. Writing will help you to sort your thoughts and to get rid of mental clutter.

SPEND TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY Everyday life can get hectic and chaotic. Spending time with your family and friends, eating dinner, having discussions or doing other things together should be a priority. A healthy work-life balance is extremely important.

READ Reading is a good way to relax, calm down, and get your mind off the day. Fiction is better; it will really allow you to disconnect.

REVIEW YOUR DAY Before you go to bed, think of the day and reflect on what went right or wrong, what you want to change, and how you can achieve it.

MEDITATE Successful entrepreneurs like Oprah Winfrey and Russel Simmons mediate in the morning and evening. When you meditate before bed, your mind relaxes and you open up to new ideas. Ten minutes before bed is enough to be more focused and productive the next day. GO OFFLINE Before they go to bed, successful people don’t check their phones, emails, or watch TV. Leave your phone and laptop in another room overnight and turn off the TV before you go to bed. It’s easier to calm down when it’s quiet. VISUALIZE THE FUTURE Many successful people visualize themselves being productive and successful the next day. Doing this will help you to motivate yourself when you wake up to start another day.

Strengthen Your Willpower and Achieve Your Goals

1. Set Small Goals and Attack Them One by One Willpower can be trained like a real muscle. First, think about the goal you’ve set for yourself. It’s best to set small goals that can be more easily achieved. Divide a large project into many smaller steps. You can then take on these smaller steps one at a time. Another approach is to set very small goals and then gradually increase the size of the tasks. This will get you used to taking on ever-bigger goals. 2. Develop Routines You can Easily Implement Lately there’s a lot of talk about “habits.” These small routines structure our lives. You can make it a habit to take the stairs instead of the elevator and get more exercise. These little changes in habits will help immensely in the process of training your willpower. They allow you to show yourself every day that you do have self-discipline and self-control.

3. Reward Yourself for Every Goal One of the best pieces of advice in terms of willpower is a reward system. If you find a reward that truly motivates you, you’ve already won half the battle. This will inspire you to really sweat. Treat yourself a lovely meal, new clothes, or a hot bath. Bigger things also be used for more important rewards. 4. Silence Your Inner Weaknesses Often that nasty inner voice inside tells us to be lazy instead of going for it. Make yourself aware that you are being lazy and coming off as a person without willpower. Make the firm decision that from now on you will no longer be driven by your inner weaknesses. The best way to achieve goals is to start working toward them right away. That inner wimp can start looking forward to the coming rewards. 5. Focusing on the Long-Term Benefits In addition to the rewards, focusing on the long-term benefits of a project is a very good motivator. What good comes from beginning your goal right away? What benefits will you gain? How will you feel when you have achieved this important goal? All these questions can help you finally get underway. A tip from experts is also the saying: “Fake it ’til you make it.” Act now as if you had already achieved your goal or habit. Gradually, it

For many people, obligations or long-term goals pose serious problems. They have trouble motivating themselves to put into action what they’ve set out to accomplish. Long term projects such as losing weight, starting a new project, or exercising truly challenge our willpower. The right strategy will help train you inner strength and moativation so that your inner weaknesses will have no sway over you in the future. Here’s how to reach your longterm goals.

will become automatic and require no more willpower. 6. Share Your Projects with Others Even family, friends, and relatives can be real motivators. You want to lose weight or start a new project? Bring your best friend into the loop and tell him about your goals. He’ll ask you how it’s going and you won’t want to admit that nothing has happened. Maybe your friend will also catch the bug and you can you motivate one other. 7. Don‘t Lead Your Willpower into Temptation For some projects, you have to make it as easy on your willpower as possible. If you want to stop smoking, throw out your cigarettes at work and home so you can’t even be tempted in weak moment. A trip to the store for a new pack of cigarettes might be enough of a deterrent.

The new Quattroporte: Restyling and Range Strategy for a new Product Experience

After three and a half years of unprecedented success in the international markets, the Quattroporte has undergone a substantial restyling that accentuates its elegance without altering its signature Maserati personality. The restyled Quattroporte, representing the quintessence of Italian sport saloons, will be available from June 2016 and is destined to continue a success story that started in 2013. Since its initial launch, the iconic Maserati flagship model has been delivered to over 24,000 customers in 72 countries.

The exterior of the restyled Quattroporte is recognizable with a new bumper design with matte black profile at the front and the matte black extractor at the rear. The front grille is more pointed and imposing, and it introduces new vertical chrome elements that contrast with the deepness of the shark nose effect. Other distinguishing details of the new Quattroporte are the matte black side skirts and the exterior mirrors, which have been slightly restyled to incorporate new technical elements. An electrically adjustable Air Shutter has been fitted in the front grille between the air vents and the engine’s radiator.

The Air Shutter provides optimal control of the engine’s fluid temperature and, together with the optimization of the new front and rear bumpers, air conveyor and flat bottom, improves the aerodynamic drag of the car by 10%.

This area is now characterized by a continuous technical element that integrates the screen, new climate control and new drawer in a single seamless design, emphasizing the pure volume composition typical of the Quattroporte.

The improvements to the interior were introduced to enhance the purity of the model by underlining only the functional parts. This takes place through the clean integration of the new interface elements with the infotainment area and tunnel console. Specifically, the redesigned central dashboard now accommodates a capacitive high resolution 8.4� screen with multi touch function.

The central, lower console has also been redesigned and now features a rotary knob for volume and function control, a new lid and phone storage compartment. The stylistic approach to these functional elements permits a minimalist design approach for the center of the dashboard.

The new infotainment system is compatible with both the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions. A new package of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems is available as an option in the new Quattroporte. It includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning with Advanced Brake Assist and Automated Emergency Braking. An additional new Surround View Camera is available as an option in combination with the Driver Assistance package. All Quattroporte cars are now equipped with an Air Quality Sensor, a feature that substantially improves comfort levels for the occupants on-board. This system combines an intelligent sensor and a signal analysis system that calculates the external pollution levels and prevents polluted air and toxic gases from entering the cabin. GranLusso and GranSport, two distinct new worlds. Since its beginnings Maserati has represented the perfect blend of luxury and sportiness thanks to its race-bred engineering. With the restyling of the flagship Quattroporte, Maserati launches a new range strategy to offer its highly demanding clientele the additional choice of two unique trim options that emphasize the two key pillars of the brand’s DNA: GranLusso and GranSport. The two highly distinctive trims are available as an upgrade for all Quattroporte V6 powertrain versions (Quattroporte Diesel, Quattroporte, Quattroporte S, Quattroporte S Q4). Both trims will be priced at the same level across the range. The top of the range version, the Quattroporte GTS, which features the twin-turbo V8, will be available exclusively with either the GranLusso or GranSport trims as part of the standard equipment. Each trim level was conceived to meet the needs of customers that seek a distinctive and unique product in the executive saloon segment. GranLusso and GranSport are immediately recognizable thanks to their distinct exterior design and unique interiors. GranLusso trim The GranLusso trim reinterprets the concept of luxury in a racebred engineered luxury saloon by enhancing the exterior finish and improving in-cabin comfort for driver and passengers. It offers a higher level of luxury using exclusive materials and special features in the finest tradition of Italian craftsmanship. GranLusso is distinctive for a new front lower fascia design with an elegant floating bridge element and a delicate spoiler, detailed by the chrome bumper finish and the body color bumper profiles. The profile incorporates side skirts, while on the rear the look is even cleaner, characterized by a sculptured retroreflector and a body colored spoiler; the exterior look is completed by 20� Mercurio rims and black painted brake calipers.

In the cabin, the soul of the GranLusso is epitomized by the Ermenegildo Zegna Edition interior that features a patented silk fabric, unique in the industry, on the seats, doors, headliner and sun visors; the seat tailoring details and the label behind the sun visors make this version unique and exclusive. The cabin ambience is further refined thanks to the exclusive open pore Radica wood on the dashboard and the leather steering wheel with wooden inserts. The trim integrates comfort-oriented equipment like the power foot pedals, the electric rear sunblind, the four-zone air conditioning, the heated rear seat and the extended keyless entry. GranSport trim The GranSport trim underscores the sporty character of the Quattroporte while enhancing the aggressive appearance of the car, thanks to new exterior design cues and interior content that reflect the legendary racing heritage of the Maserati brand. On the front of the Quattroporte GranSport, the dedicated restyling for the center and side air intakes improves the cooling function while showcasing an aggressive front area. The lower fascia is linked to the grille with aerodynamic inspired splits. The back is characterized by an evident composition between a center fuselage and two side pockets that focus the attention on the exhausts. An aggressive black piano spoiler completes the rear view. The Quattroporte GranSport is fitted with 21” Titano rims and features a glossy black finish on the bumpers, red brake calipers and blue inserts in the front Trident and side Saetta badge as well as blue Tridents on the wheel centres. As an option, the front grille of the GranSport can be ordered in a glossy black finish. The interior of the Quattroporte GranSport includes redesigned front and rear seats, with their sculptured profiles, to improve sporty driving performances while a new sport steering wheel, in carbon fiber or full leather, creates a strong identity. Thanks to the high gloss Piano Black wood trim on the dashboard, the brand new sport seats, the sport steering wheel fitted with aluminum gearbox paddles and the stainless steel sport pedals, the interior of the Quattroporte GranSport guarantees a truly sporty experience.

A further opportunity for customization is available in the form of the optional Exterior Carbon Pack for the GranSport trim, to further enhance the sporty exterior. This pack features external mirrors, door handles and b-pillar cover plus the profile of the front bumper in carbon fiber.

Based on the same V6 architecture, the Quattroporte is also available in specific markets with 350 hp, 20 hp more than in the previous version, capable of delivering a powerful drive with a torque of 500 Nm, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and a faster top speed of 270 km/h. The range is completed by the Quattroporte Diesel; equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 Turbo, it delivers 600 Nm of torque with 275 hp, retaining a top speed of 252 km/h and a quick 0-100 km/h figure of just 6.4 seconds.
