I’M MAX

Hi, I’m M A X... Born in Melbourne, Australia, I first came to the United States in 2006 as an exchange student. Flash forward 11 years, and I am now proud to call St. Louis my home. Home is where you make it, and I have embraced St. Louis for all its quirks and culture just as it has me. On a personal search to represent my city with style and comfort, I found myself frustrated with limited options; thus, Arch Apparel was born. Some of the greatest ideas are those formed from one’s own personal need. Arch Apparel was exactly that for me. I was looking for T-shirts or hats that didn’t necessarily scream our local sports teams, but rather represent our city as a whole. There’s a certain pride and sense of love for one’s city that can never be taught or sold; it’s something you feel. Even if the city you call home is not where you were born, you can still feel that sense of pride. Perhaps it’s where you grew up, educated yourself, met your significant other, bought your first home or saw your first World Series game. St. Louis instills a civic pride in all of us, and that’s something Arch Apparel is highlighting through our work with local models, artists, photographers, videographers, businesses, charities and individuals. Arch Apparel is more than a clothing brand that represents St. Louis. It’s a vehicle to highlight all the creative forces we have in our city. It has allowed people to throw on a T-shirt that reads “SAINT LOUIS” and wear it proudly as they explore all the city has to offer or while traveling the world. It has also provided an option to patrons who want to support their community through local business. As the industry changes and traditional retail stores aren’t as frequented, Arch Apparel heavily focuses its business online. Our Instagram page @ArchApparelSTL is our strongest marketing vehicle. We reach our audience through digital platforms and an online presence versus traditional marketing and foot traffic. Word of mouth has grown our brand significantly, and our customer service, quality of goods and style of advertising must be on point and original every day. The Arch Apparel team grows each month, whether it’s through adding a new creative mind or aspiring model to the group or partnering with a local business or charity. My dream is for Arch Apparel to become part of the fabric of our community — something we can all proudly wear while supporting our community with style. I am Aaron Park, owner and operator of Arch Apparel. I am MAX. MaximizeStL.com

Feel the St. Louis Surge Women’s Basketball Team Increases Awareness, Earns More Fans BY MAX ART COURTESY OF KHALIA COLLIER As we at MAX call attention to all the lesser-known yet amazing things going on in St. Louis, one such hidden gem in the River City sports world is the St. Louis Surge, a professional women’s basketball team that plays at the Washington University Field House during the summer months. Finishing the regular 2017 season undefeated, averaging 104 points per game, the Surge fell short in a bid for backto-back basketball titles with a final record of 12-1; however, they took the championship in 2016 and 2014 and were runners-up in 2012 and 2015. “Knowing that we won in 2016, we came back to get in that mentality in 2017, and when we fell short by one point, everyone started last year’s season ready to get back and win another championship,” says Khalia Collier, owner and general manager of the St. Louis Surge. “You saw that within the mentality of our coaching staff; you saw that in the mental preparation of our players, knowing that their goal was to win a national championship.” With six new players added to the roster this past season, they quickly built team chemistry and a family bond on and off the court. “Last year, the players learned that they had to play together as a team and a family,” she says. “It was something that you saw consistently — that they were a family on and off the court, which made the determining difference as to why we won another championship.” The environment at Washington University this season was like none other: loud, fun and full of energetic Surge fans, according to Collier. “Though falling short, it was a really incredible season for us. The continued momentum of the Surge in the St. Louis market is only growing. We are only earning more and more fans as we increase awareness.” Even in their own lives, their own jobs and their own interests, the ladies understand that being part of the Surge is not just being part of a team — it’s a lifestyle. “Every Surge player is not only a phenomenal athlete, but an amazing person,” Collier explains. “Winning is an expectation for our program, and the resources that we surround our players with prepares them not only as player development, but career development. And that’s something that is a key part of our model — that we recruit character first. When the players are trying out, they know that it’s not just about how many points you can score or how many rebounds; we’re looking for the overall package and cultural fit within our organization.” By setting such an expectation, the team comes in with a mentality knowing it’s not just what they can do on the court, but whether they also enjoy being in the community, working with kids and are understanding of the magnitude of the impact they can have on the next generation of players and fans. “We are truly everywhere, and every fan we have, we’ve earned and will continue to do so,” she says. “And we’ve shown that by how many school districts we are in, how many clinics we are doing for kids of all ages and making sure that our presence is known. I do six to eight speaking engagements a month, the coaching staff is incredibly involved, and I’m proud of what our players do. Separate from being a part of the Surge, they are involved and volunteering and doing things that are not mandated to be a part of the program.” For more information about the 2018 season, visit stlsurgebasketball.com.

TRIUMEQ is a once-a-day pill used to treat HIV-1. In some people, TRIUMEQ should not be used by itself. Take TRIUMEQ exactly as your healthcare provider tells you. APPROVED USES TRIUMEQ is a prescription HIV-1 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus-type 1) medicine used alone or with other antiretroviral medicines to treat HIV-1 infection in adults. HIV-1 is the virus that causes AIDS. TRIUMEQ is not for use by itself in people who have or have had resistance to abacavir, dolutegravir, or lamivudine. TRIUMEQ should not be used in children under the age of 18. TRIUMEQ does not cure HIV-1 or AIDS. You must keep taking HIV-1 medicines to control HIV-1 infection and decrease HIV-related illnesses.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION What is the most important information I should know about TRIUMEQ? TRIUMEQ can cause serious side effects, including: • Serious allergic reactions (hypersensitivity reaction) that can cause death have happened with TRIUMEQ and other abacavir-containing products. Your risk of this allergic reaction to abacavir is much higher if you have a gene variation called HLA-B*5701. Your healthcare provider can determine with a blood test if you have this gene variation. If you get symptoms from 2 or more of the following groups while taking TRIUMEQ, call your healthcare provider right away: 1. fever; 2. rash; 3. nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or stomach pain; 4. generally ill feeling, extreme tiredness, or achiness; 5. shortness of breath, cough, or sore throat. Your pharmacist will give you a Warning Card with a list of these symptoms. Carry this Warning Card with you at all times. If you stop taking TRIUMEQ because of an allergic reaction, never take TRIUMEQ or any other abacavir- or dolutegravir-containing medicines again. If you have an allergic reaction, dispose of any unused TRIUMEQ. Ask your pharmacist how to properly dispose of medicines. If you take TRIUMEQ or any other abacavir-containing medicine again after you have had an allergic reaction, within hours you may get life-threatening symptoms that may include very low blood pressure or death. If you stop TRIUMEQ for any other reason, even for a few days, and you are not allergic to TRIUMEQ, talk with your healthcare provider before taking it again. Taking TRIUMEQ again can cause a serious allergic or life-threatening reaction, even if you never had an allergic reaction to it before. If your healthcare provider tells you that you can take TRIUMEQ again, start taking it when you are around medical help or people who can call a healthcare provider if you need one. • A buildup of acid in your blood (lactic acidosis). Lactic acidosis can happen in some people who take TRIUMEQ. This serious medical emergency can cause death. Call your healthcare provider right away if you feel very weak or tired; have unusual muscle pain; have trouble breathing; have stomach pain with nausea and vomiting; feel cold, especially in your arms and legs; feel dizzy/light-headed; or have a fast/irregular heartbeat. • Serious liver problems can happen in people who take TRIUMEQ. In some cases, these serious liver problems can lead to death. You may be more likely to get lactic acidosis or serious liver problems if you are female, very overweight (obese), or have been taking nucleoside analogue medicines for a long time. Call your healthcare provider right away if you get any of the following signs or symptoms: • yellow skin, or the white part of the eyes turns yellow (jaundice); dark urine; light-colored stools; loss of appetite for several days or longer; nausea; pain, aching, or tenderness on the right side of your stomach area • Worsening of hepatitis B virus in people who have HIV-1 infection. If you have HIV-1 and hepatitis B virus (HBV), your HBV may get worse (flare-up) if you stop taking TRIUMEQ. A “flare-up” is when your HBV suddenly returns in a worse way than before. Worsening liver disease can be serious and may lead to death. Do not stop taking TRIUMEQ without first talking to your healthcare provider, so he or she can monitor your health. • Resistant hepatitis B virus. If you have HIV-1 and hepatitis B, the hepatitis B virus can change (mutate) during your treatment with TRIUMEQ and become harder to treat (resistant). ©2017 ViiV Healthcare group of companies.
