  • Playboy no longer running nude photos a huge gamble: experts

    ...The streak will end with the March edition — its first without any naked ladies. Many industry observers see the move as a huge gamble — one last gasp at getting the magazine back to any semblance of its glory days when circulation was at a high of 5.6 million. That was in 1976. Today, it stands at just a bit more than 800,000. “I am sure they are hoping that they will be able to attract advertisers, now that a reason for staying out of it has been removed,” said one former top executive at Playboy. Playboy’s new look...

    During the early morning of Oct. 25, 1893, a column of 700 soldiers from the British South African Police camped in a defensive position next to the Shangani River. While they slept, the Matabele king Lobengula ordered an attack on the column, sending a force of up to 6,000 men—some armed with spears, but many with Martini-Henry rifles. Among its weapons, the column possessed several Maxim machine guns. Once a bugler sounded the alert, the Maxims spun into action—and the results were horrific. The Maxim gunners mowed down more than 1,600 of the attacking Matabele tribesman. As for the British...

    NEW YORK – Maxim Magazine’s second "Salute to the Military" special edition features a country music cutie, a seriously hot Marine, and several of the magazine's iconic Hometown Hotties from across this great land of ours. "American Idol" veteran and avid military supporter Kelli Pickler graces the cover, and the magazine's head honcho said choosing the singer was a no brainer. “She is not only beautiful, but she is a USO veteran. She’s been on five tours overseas in the past couple of years," Maxim editor-in-chief Dan Bova told "She comes from a military family and she has a...

But on the top 100 is a woman who is definitely not what you would consider "hot:" Michelle Obama. I won't bad-mouth her too much, but the First Lady is not attractive, yet Maxim places her at 93.

It’s also not a system seen here on PEI yet for residential and it will be great to follow Tom and Gail over the winter and see...

The sexy ladies are Jessica Biel, Scarlett Johansson, Mariah Carey, Vanessa Minnillo, Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba. Johansson and Biel land somewhere in the top 10, though Maxim wouldn't give any more specifics.

    NEW YORK - Facing more criticism over rating albums without listening to them, Maxim magazine now says it was previewing CDs in its March issue — not reviewing them. Maxim editorial director James Kaminsky told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the magazine had erred in treating unreleased albums by the Black Crowes and Nas as reviews and judging them with star ratings. "I will be the last person to mince words here: This is a mistake," Kaminsky said. "It's a mistake that won't happen again, but it's not a mistake that appears in other parts of (the magazine's entertainment...

    MIAMI (AP) - Authorities in Florida are sending convicted sex offenders to jail for violating the terms of their probation by having men's magazines such as Maxim. Andrew Calderon, 23, was jailed for six days before a judge ordered his release after officers found a racy poster and calendar and copies of Maxim in his home earlier this year. A judge will decide next month whether Calderon's probation should be revoked or extended and whether the materials were innocent. Corrections officials said Calderon, who was on probation for the sexual battery of a mentally disabled relative, committed a violation by...

    ( Um el-Fahm resident Jamal Mahadjne, 47, was indicted today in the Haifa District for transporting the female suicide bomber who perpetrated the Maxim Restaurant attack in Haifa on 4 October inside Green Line Israel. Mahadjne was a habitual violator, who regularly took a fee for driving PA residents across the Green Line illegally, taking advantage of his Israeli identity card to cross back and forth without difficulty. Several days before the attack, he allegedly drove the bomber, a Jenin resident, into Green Line Israel where she perpetrated the attack that claimed 21 lives and left over 65 injured. The...

    Israel Defense Forces troops operating in the West Bank city of Jenin on Friday captured senior Islamic Jihad militant Amjad Abeidi, who planned the suicide bombing at a Haifa restaurant last month in which 21 people were killed. Abeidi is responsible for dispatching a number of suicide bombers to carry out attacks in Israel, including Hanadi Jaradat, who blew herself up in Haifa's Maxim restaurant. The soldiers located the complex in which Abeidi was hiding, and searched it. Several hours later they found a weapons stockpile hidden under one of the houses. After the soldiers threw a grenade into the...

    Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the nation's largest retailer, said yesterday that it had halted sales of Maxim, Stuff and FHM, men's magazines that feature a mix of scantily clad starlets and bawdy humor but go to some lengths to avoid being labeled as pornography. The decision came after "listening to our customers and associates," Melissa Berryhill, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart, said. "I know we've heard on at least one of those magazines, they weren't pleased with the offering." Maxim has been sold in Wal-Mart for the last three years, while FHM was added recently. The standards and general content of the...
