BRAZILIAN BABE KARINA FLORES PHOTOGRAPHY BY SERGIO KOVACEVICK

Who’s the hottest of all Brazilian models? When Karina Flores hit the scene at the age of 21, the names Bündchen, Lima and Ambrosio might have been on the tip of your tongue, but consider this: All three of them were elbows-deep in diapers and baby formula at the time. Those super models dominated the 2000s, but with a new decade, a new generation of Brazilian beauties rose to the occasion. Karina Flores hails from the southern Brazilian town of Blumenau. She’s become ubiquitous in her country, where she has captured the imagination of many a man with more than a few Brazilian PLAYBOY pictorials.

UNSCRAMBLING THE PAST The history of the Companhia dos Caminho de Ferro de Benguela is one written in the colonial colors of international intrigue, of the Great Scramble for Africa, and of the rivalries between the Belgian King Leopold II, the Germans who vehemently opposed the idea, and the grasping greed of Cecil John Rhodesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s British Chartered Company. The brainchild of Sir Robert Williams, a Scottishborn mining engineer previously employed by Rhodes, the CFBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction was brought about by the Chartered Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insistence that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be given 50% of any minerals discovered in the then-Northern Rhodesia and the southern Free State of the Congo. This would be in return for        

 mines and extending its own railway line from Victoria Falls to southern Congo to supply the operations with coking coal. An earlier geological expedition sent by the Belgian king reported nothing of any mineral value to be found here, but Williamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own expedition, led by the intrepid George Grey, found the ancient copper workings of Kansanshi and as they moved further north, the great Kambove copper deposit in the rocky outcrops of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Likasi in 1901. Although initially disappointed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Williams and his Tanganyika Concessions (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tanks Plcâ&#x20AC;?) were 

           

        massive increase in the need for copper. Williams initiated negotiations in the greatest of secrecy with King Leopold and the Portuguese government (Angolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s colonial masters), with the latter granting a 99-year concession in late 1902. But Leopoldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intransigence over the Lado Enclave spat with the British, a vacillating Chartered Company under the         delayed construction until 1907. Although nearly 4,000 kilometers long, as it follows the ancient slaving route of the central Angolan highlands along the watershed between     !"    the distance to Europeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foundries via rail to Cape Town by several weeks and 6,000 kilometers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and avoided punitive charges imposed by Rhodesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chartered companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own railway company. But the outbreak of WWI trapped Portugal in a political no-manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land and led to work being suspended in 1915. Williams, who had been left      #

to build this line, faced delays for another 18 months after the Armistice was signed in 1918 and was eventually forced to accept a British loan of ÂŁ3,000,000 to complete the line â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on condition that this exclusively be expended on British materials and expertise. The CFB only reached the copper mines of Kambove in 1929 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 22 years after construction had started. Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; biographer, however, noted that the CFB never operated at full capacity. Following the Belgian state taking over King Leopoldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Congo holdings due to a growing human rights scandal, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;voie nationalâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a series of rail- and riverboat links running the length of the Congo River #      $ its high operating expenses. Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Belgian partners, Union MiniĂŠre, were compelled to ship the bulk of their production along the far more circuitous and time-consuming Congo River route until the outbreak of WWII when the demand for brass cartridges saw gross tonnage increase from 70,034 metric tons in 1939 to 99,231 by 1945. By 1950, this had increased to 247,476 tons and continued to increase steadily as the CFB proved invaluable to supplying Katanga, reaching 630,176 tons by 1969. The Congo Free State had, in the meanwhile, gained independence under tumultuous conditions in 1960, and Shaba Province, under the leadership of MoĂŻse Tshombe and backed by Belgian interests, &        between 1960 and 1963. Tellingly, this era â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of the bloodiest in the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history â&#x20AC;&#x201C; did not affect Union MiniĂŠreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s output at all, and it steadily rose throughout this period. In 1970, Congoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increasingly rapacious President ' **+    /  ' :  started appointing his own cronies to management positions, with predictable results: output started declining, and the once-handsome dividends from the CFB also appeared to start drying up. Events elsewhere in South Africa, where the policy of Apartheid was hardening regional attitudes to the minority white government, led to Zambiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s President Kenneth Kaunda suspending all his countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s copper shipments via the South African

For the following three years, the CFB was the  <       = Interestingly, Dr Nelson Pestana of the Catholic University (CEIC) in Luanda suggested that during this period, the late Jonas Savimbiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forces attacked the CFB line once â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only to be scolded by their staunchest supporters such as Mobutu for $

The chaotic manner in which they withdrew from Angola nearly immediately ignited a bloody civil war, pitting the Communist-inspired MPLA against the FNLA forces of Holden Roberto and Savimbiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s UNITA in an intractable, 27-year-long war that was only to end with Savimbiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being gunned down in remote Moxico province on 22 February 2002. As a result of the Angolan chaos, the CFB for all practical purposes ceased operating as a regional transport route in 1975, so forcing the DRC (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zaireâ&#x20AC;?) into relying increasingly on the southern and eastern African railway networks while Angolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic isolation became ever more acute over the following 27 years.

Not secular or sectarian. Not the northern provinces. His school chums and soccer buddies, some rebel or regime. Not Sunni or Alawite. Her songs lull Salloum into a state now missing limbs but still alive, singing to themselves through the long of peace, something he wants for all Syrians, and he loves to picture that nights, shooting, shivering and shooting in turns. Music in their brains, feeling flowing up from just like his. It had his tiny underground been this way since radio station, through the beginning, when the FM radio waves everyone gathered        "    ##  $ and mingling with with protest signs in attempt to help topple embattled President Bashar strangers passing on the the village square in al-Assadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regime. sidewalk.

die myself than kill,” he says. No, he is bound to them only by music. He lives in a mental space beyond Arab pride and checkpoints and firefights, where speech is already free, someplace far, far away. For now, Salloum is living in exile. It is December, and he is sitting cross-legged on a purple mat in Reyhanli, a ramshackle border town in Turkey’s southernmost limits. He fidgets in his bulky winter coat; in his left hand is a cigarette smoked well into the filter. Piles of shoes, stacked suitcases, folding chairs and a mound of sweaty blankets surround him, all of it the accumulated evidence of aid workers, journalists and fighters who rested for a day or two on the scuffed marble floor before jumping the border back to Syria and civil war. Behind a swirl of cigarette smoke, consternation creases Salloum’s face. He doesn’t feel like being photographed. It took 30 months of air strikes and weeks of wrestling with the shame of leaving to push him to this safe house in Reyhanli. Salloum needed a place outside the kill zone, and this building in Turkey, just a few kilometers from the Syrian border, is close enough that he can drop by his bombed-out home and his beloved radio station in Kafranbel. The camera ready, I ask him to relax his face. He refuses. “I want it to be true,” Salloum says. &OLFN He sinks within himself, deliberating over the possibility of truth in all this confusion. He’s gone. It takes an hour, a pack of Gauloises Blondes, a hot meal and tea before he speaks again. But I know the song on repeat in Salloum’s mind: “My Little House in Canada,” sung by Fairuz. His favorite. The war in Syria was changing. Salloum could hear it all around him. War hymns saturated the music. No one sang the revolution songs anymore. No one sang Fairuz. He knew that. What Salloum couldn’t know was that back in Syria, soldiers were about to kick down the door of the radio station, and his days of broadcasting Fairuz – and peace – into the Syrian airwaves were numbered.

The structure that houses Fresh FM stands out on a debris-cluttered block thanks to a brick facade dotted with squares of red, pink, yellow and blue. It feels more San Francisco than Syria. The building houses the Kafranbel media center and Karama Bus, a nonprofit that provides social activities for village children; Fresh FM is crammed into the rear of the basement. Salloum guides us past a coughing generator and a tangle of motorcycles to a metal door leading down a narrow, shoulder-width plywood hallway that branches off into claustrophobic, wire-veined rooms where staffers smoke, work and boil tea. The vibe is military efficiency meets activist squat. (Yes, that smell is definitely black mold.) A golden bust of President Bashar al-Assad, complete with black eyes, lipstick, a missing tooth and a Frankenstein forehead scar, looks down from the newsroom wall. “Have you met our president?” a staffer asks, smacking the statue gently It is two months earlier, and a bomb tumbles lazily across the October on the cheek. “Say hi, Bashar.” sky toward me.

Ahmed has visited Aleppo a few times since â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not to fight but out of sheer boredom. The first time he went back, regime soldiers who controlled the city captured and beat him, telling him that if they saw his face again he would disappear forever. They handcuffed him and threw him against the wall, demanding he hold still for a mug shot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can I have six little ones and one big one for my living room?â&#x20AC;? Ahmed asked.

Some of the small assembly of 400 Carrots were at the top of their medical-school class; there were also college dropouts, clerks, actors, rock musicians. They were young men who trolled for foreign women online and liked smoking hash, according to Omar, 23, an Aleppo fighter who had friends in Jazar’s brigade. “They were the true Syrians,” he says, chain-smoking on a carpet in Reyhanli.

Some nights, when the war came close, members of the Fresh FM family slept at the radio station, pressed along the concrete wall next to Salloum. The war was getting close to my guide and me as well. On December 4, Yasser Faisal al-Jumaili, an Iraqi freelance journalist from Fallujah, was shot dead at an ISIS checkpoint in Idlib less than 60 kilometers from the Turkish border. FSA fighters who broke the news to us speculated that it was related to his Western dress. They also indicated that we could be next.

Salvador DalĂ­, that naughty old man, paid homage to the Playmate by looking over his shoulder and creating a belle-epoque odalisque

George Segal George Segal was an old softy. He made plastercast sculptures of working people, so his Playmate is a working model, tired and resting in a chair between takes. Since the plaster cast adds 30 pounds and the camera adds another 30, Segalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Playmate looks a bit chubby in photographs (sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enceinte, actually). She is best seen in person, where the plaster is evident and the modelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhaustion palpable. Of all the works in the Playmate suite, Segalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has the biggest heart.

JOHN CURRIN & LISA YUSKAVAGE In the 1980s, as the nuts and bolts of PLAYBOYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oilpaint illustrations passed out of kitsch-land and into â&#x20AC;&#x153;historical popular culture,â&#x20AC;? it was inevitable that young artists would pick up on this newly traditional way of

painting. John Currin (above left) and Lisa Yuskavage (above right) do the best job of it, transforming the traditional PLAYBOY illustration style of Martin Hoffman into high art images that are at once sexy and drenched in nostalgia for a more permissive time.

Andy Warhol Andy Warholâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of Art Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rabbit is classic Warhol: just Art Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rabbit on a red background. As always in Warholâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art, there is a lot more death than heterosexuality. His black-light Playmate boobies, in fact, must qualify as the most disinterested depiction of womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breasts in the history of contemporary art. Warhol liked women, just not those jiggly things.

James Rosenquist Jim Rosenquistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Playmate painting can be read as a little story from left to right. One turns the strawberry shortcake into an equally delicious well-breasted female torso that makes oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pickle glisten. The wire basket, I assume, is where the bad photos were tossed in the process of this transformation. It ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rocket science. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not   $   ;Q Q <

The V8S can be described as a no-bullshit visceral driving experience that is as much emotional as it is physical. The V8S can be described as a no-bullshit visceral driving experience that is as much emotional as it is physical. The cry of the engine as it revels through its gear cycle is powerful, succinct and gloat-worthy, with no exaggeration of its capabilities. The gear shifts could be faster, but it is a bigger engine than the V6S, so it’s only natural that it may take a moment more. Rising into the mountains and gaining traction on the weathered slim roads, the F-Type’s dead handling is spot on – even more so than the V6S – and with an extra punch of power to really drive you out of those corners. As you pass the 60mph mark and the rear spoiler automatically deploys, the stance

is refined and classy yet wholly sporty. At $92,000 it’s a clear winner, though if you’re more inclined to take the V6S on price, you’re still not in the wrong. It’s clear when Jag design master Ian Callum set out to design the world’s greatest new sports car he was ambitious, but watching him take hold of his 2013 World Car Design of the Year trophy for the first time, you do get the sense he’s reached his mark. Overall, the Jaguar F-Type lays a clear groundwork for Jaguar’s triumphant return to its racing heritage, one that both praises and builds upon the legendary E-Type’s legacy and is sure to put the company back on the map for years to come.

There’s some think she’s my daughter or I’m her pimp, but neither is true. We got married last summer in Las Vegas at a drive-through chapel that I rented a convertible for, thinking it would make the event a glamorous memory, but mainly it turned out hot and dusty. Worse, she burned the back of her legs on the vinyl seat so bad she threatened to divorce me on the spot. If she left me, I think I’d miss her anger the most. It’s a kind of attention and I’ve attached myself to the habit of having it around. 144

A FEVER COUNTDOWN TO FIFA 2014 WITH JACLYN TAYLOR A SOCCER BALL HAS NEVER BEEN SO ENVIED BEFORE. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got FIFA fever and so we searched high and low to bring you some FIFA-inspired pictorials. Just as FIFA unites the world in the spirit of football, the multicultural Jaclyn Taylor (her father's family is from Ethiopia and Sicily and her mother's family is from Russia and Romania) could bring men from warring nations across the globe together for the common cause of worshipping her beauty. Jaclyn says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being a model gives me an adrenalin rush that is irreplaceable. I am such a girly-girl, I love being all dolled up and   <![\      +"$#    # # 

        !]    comes to men, she explains her taste: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love an edgy man who has style, although, a classy man in a suit is timeless, and always sexy. Gets me every time.â&#x20AC;? But when it comes to supporting a football team, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s far less picky. Her favorite soccer team is â&#x20AC;&#x153;whoever the hottest players play for.â&#x20AC;?

She sits there for hours looking through every single action Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried password protection, but that caused a problem. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not doing anything wrong, but I feel like a prisoner in my own home. When I confront her about this, we always start to argue and she wants to know what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hiding that she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see.

Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it unwise to go from anal to vaginal? Also, in some other videos a man may lick a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; without using any protection â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and then lick her vagina. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surprised they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take some sort of precaution.
