IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT
MAXIM ’ S GUIDE TO SURVIVING THE APOCALYPSE
ARMAGEDDON MAY BE UPON US, BUT FEAR NOT: ANYONE WHO HAS READ THE BIBLE OR SEEN RESIDENT EVIL KNOWS THAT EVERY APOCALYPSE HAS SURVIVORS – INCLUDING SCANTILY-CLAD HOT ONES WHO LOOK LIKE MILLA JOVOVICH. AND WE’VE GOT THE TOOLS YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE IT OUT ALIVE WHEN JUDGMENT DAY ARRIVES. BUST OUT THE DUCT TAPE!

ELEVATED THREAT LEVEL WORLD WAR III

Sure, he’s got a fantastic jump shot, but in a volatile world filled with Ahmadinejads and Abu Nazir wannabes, does returning president Barack Obama have what it takes to protect the free world from global conflict? On one hand, US relations with Russia have become increasingly chilly ever since they invaded Georgia in 2008. Meanwhile, the pissing contest with Iran has yet to extinguish their nuclear ambitions, and reports claim they have enough nuke juice for a functioning bomb. Add deeply troubling conditions in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Lebanon, and North Korea to the overheated stew and suddenly Kennedy’s big ‘test’ – the Cuban missile crisis – feels like a high school production of Mamma Mia! If WWIII is on its way, is it just a matter of time before there are mushroom clouds in democracy’s backyard? Because, you know, that would totally f—k up those agapanthus we just planted back there.

SURVIVAL KIT: Radiation suit, duct tape.
WHERE TO GO FOR SANCTUARY: You’re already here. Anyone who’s seen any postapocalyptic movies knows the world ultimately looks like Australia, so best get used to the terrain and bush tucker rations sooner rather
than later. Learn how to convert a battered old Torana into a tank when you get the chance.
PROS: We rarely get directly affected by war.
CONS: Widespread casualties worldwide and mutant radioactive zombies.
WHEN WILL THIS HAPPEN? We doubt you’ll need to build a bomb shelter or practice ducking beneath a school desk anytime soon. Even still, you can get an insight on what to do in the instance WWIII eventuates by playing
the new CoD.

LOW THREAT LEVEL THE RAPTURE
According to a Time/CNN poll, 59 per cent of Americans believe the biblical ending depicted in the book of Revelation will come to pass. If they’re right, the Earth shall soon become an especially bad Michael Bay movie filled with demons, plagues of locusts, rivers of blood, and robots (we hope). On the bright side (at least for believers): Before the planet goes to hell in a handbasket, the Rapture will arrive. Christians will be whisked away to the heavens to meet Jesus, thanking their lucky stars they weren’t left behind with the world’s Muslims, Hindus, Jews, and men’s magazine staff to face a bloody Armageddon. “The Rapture is imminent,” says RaptureReady.com’s general editor, Terry James. “Millions of Christians are going to disappear.” And according to most evangelicals, our only hope is to convert before the Rapture occurs. Guess we’d better get to church and start looking for a nice Buddhist couple to feed the cats.

SURVIVAL KIT: Jesus Is The Reason for The Season sweater, a copy of that footprints-in-the-sand story, duct tape.
WHERE TO GO FOR SANCTUARY: The Bible Belt. Duh, ignorant heathen scum.
PROS: No collection plate.
CONS: Itchy church pants.
WHEN WILL THIS HAPPEN? Tim LaHaye, co-author of the Christian doom and gloom Left Behind series, say Israel holds the key. Matthew 24:34 suggests that once Israel becomes a state, as it did in 1948, a “generation shall not pass” before Armageddon arrives. Since some biblical scholars qualify a biblical generation as being 40 years, many predicted the Rapture/Armageddon would happen by 1988. Now many say we should forget the 1948 date and focus on Israel’s Six Day War in 1967. Which should put the Rapture right about… uh-oh.

LOW THREAT LEVEL A RMAGEDDON 2012
You’ll probably recall that New Year’s Eve 1999 was filled with lots of apocalyptic anxiety. That was nothing. The real doomsday jitters will arrive on December 21, 2012, when the 5,125-year cycle that makes up the
Mayans’ calendar system officially comes to a close. Some, including the authors of The Bible Code and The Nostradamus Code, have predicted that an enormous comet or meteor will destroy the Earth during this
fateful year. Or worse, says Lawrence E. Joseph, author of Apocalypse 2012: An Investigation Into Civilization’s End, “The next peak in the sunspot cycle, due in 2012, is widely expected to set records for the number and intensity
of solar storms pummelling the Earth with radiation and igniting natural calamities such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and Katrina-size hurricanes.” And we thought sitting through Apocalypto was bad.

SURVIVAL KIT: Sunscreen (SPF 90+), non-Mesoamerican calendar, duct tape.
WHERE TO GO FOR SANCTUARY: Start investing in a moon plot. If the Earth’s gone, even Survivorman and MacGyver are going to have a tough time improvising.
PROS: Some, like Daniel Pinchbeck, author of 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, believe an upcoming evolution in consciousness will make humans smarter. Possibly even smart enough to pronounce “Quetzalcoatl” properly.
CONS: We’re gonna get screwed on all those 2013 T-shirts that we invested in.
WHEN WILL THIS HAPPEN? The precise time the Mayan calendar comes to its conclusion is December 21, 2012, at 11:11pm, Universal Time. Bummer – that’s right in the middle of fap o'clock!

ELEVATED THREAT PENICILLIN-PROOF BUGS
There’s an incredibly scary, medically induced health-care crisis happening right now – and we’re not talking about our crippling addiction to codeine. The meds that people have been counting on for decades to treat everything from pneumonia to tuberculosis to those burning sensations in the pee-pee department are becoming useless. Turns out the overuse of antibiotics has caused many previously treatable bacteria and germs to evolve into badass, drugresistant superbugs. For a nightmarish example, there’s the drug-resistant staph infection known as MRSA, which was responsible for more than 18,000 deaths in 2007 in the United States alone, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Germophobes who are afraid to touch anything at the doctor’s office may be onto something: More than 100,000 Americans die each year from hospitalacquired infections. So warns the Food
and Drug Administration, “the world could be faced with previously treatable diseases that have once again become untreatable, as in the days before antibiotics were developed”. Crippling plague, anyone?

SURVIVAL KIT: Condoms, antibacterial soap, cootie spray, duct tape.
WHERE TO GO FOR SANCTUARY: Inside an impenetrable bubble.
PROS: It’s a great excuse for skipping the gym, which is a breeding ground for bacteria and staph infections.
CONS: Without penicillin, you can add untreatable gonorrhea to your list of concerns after sleeping with that skanky cashier from Hot Dollar with the lazy eye.
WHEN WILL THIS HAPPEN? Why waste time? Go pick up a potentially deadly staph infection at your nearest hospital, gym, or high school locker room today!

SEVERE THREAT LEVEL OUR FEVERISH BIOSPHERE
The weather is getting weirder by the day. Headlines are filled with evidence of terrifying climate change: record-setting droughts, horrible floods, extinction of species, ruined ski trips. Global warming is as “frightening as a science fiction movie”, said U.N. Secretary- General Ban Ki-moon after citing an international study that stated, if we don’t take drastic measures, we’ve got nothing but good times to look forward to: An estimated 75 million-to-250 million people in Africa could be hit with brutal water shortages, and 25 per cent of the planet’s animal and plant life could die off by 2020. Nice knowing you, African viviparous toad! Of course, some still think climate change is a lot of hot air but it’s getting harder to deny that the planet seems to have a lethal hangover from its extended bender with the human race

SURVIVAL KIT: Yacht with a wet bar, bathing suit, air conditioner, duct tape.
WHERE TO GO FOR SANCTUARY: Tibet. You can brush up on your Buddhism while avoiding the rising seas in the Himalayas.
PROS: You’ll be able to buy that perfect beachfront home – in central Australia.
CONS: More men wearing thongs and hot pants in July.
WHEN WILL THIS HAPPEN? Most experts believe climate change is already happening and will get worse in the immediate future unless we make serious changes now. Fine, we’ll only use half a bottle of hair lacquer
on our coif before we go out clubbing.

GUARDED THREAT LEVEL NANOBIOBOTS GONE WILD !
In the very near future, your insides may be crawling with thousands of selfpropelled robotic organisms – known as nanobiobots – that diagnose disease, clean up your arteries, and even fight cancer. But there’s a catch: Many scientists worry that the endgame will be an army of dangerous, self-replicating nanobiobots that will reproduce at alarming rates and turn the planet into a big ball of so-called “grey goo”. Michael Crichton’s Prey, among other science fiction novels, addressed the grey goo scenario, and many experts agree that it’s a legitimate threat. “[Grey goo] will have the ability to feed on us until we are extinct,” says Alan H. Goldstein, a prize-winning researcher
in nanobiotechnology and unflappable optimist. At least the homicidal robots in The Terminator had funny accents!

SURVIVAL KIT: Teflon body suit, goo repellent, duct tape.
WHERE TO GO FOR SANCTUARY: Canberra. Not even flesh-eating nanobiobots want to go to Canberra.
PROS: The grey goo would engulf Ashton Kutcher.
CONS: The grey goo would engulf you.
WHEN WILL THIS HAPPEN? Scientists believe that nanobiobots will be used to battle cancer and other diseases in the next couple years, so pretty soon after that. Yikes!

Raise Your Fitness Game


HIITtraining?That’s so last year. Bikram? Been there, wore the small pants.We asked the experts for the hottest fitness trends of 2014 and howthey’ll transformyour body forever

1. SPEEDFLEX
The new cross training
WHAT IT IS: Fear not. This high-intensity interval training isn’t half as scary as its predecessor. It is based around a free motion bar, where the more force you apply to it, the more resistance you have pushed back against you from the machine. “This form of training reduces micro tearing of the muscles so you don’t get muscle soreness and will still want to train the next day,” says physiotherapist Stuart Ayles. Steady on now.
CALORIE BURN: 800-1,200 per 45-minute session.
GREAT FOR: Arms and overall fitness levels.

2. ESSENTRICS
The new Pilates
WHAT IT IS: It might sound like the latest wigheaded indie band, but Essentrics is, in fact, a Pilatesinspired workout based on stretching muscles before strengthening them in the elongated position to create a longer, leaner, more toned shape. “It makes your waist thinner, stomach flatter, legs leaner and bum more toned. Most people see resultswithin a month,” says celebrity fitness
expert LauraWilliams. Now that’smusic to our ears.
CALORIE BURN: 276 per 30-minute session.
GREAT FOR: Posture and sculpting lean muscle.

3. SOULCYCLE
The new spinning
WHAT IT IS: The wait is over. SoulCycle, a cycling and body-sculpting class, has a cult following in the US and now it’s coming here. As riders mount stationary bikes, the lights are dimmed, candles are lit and the instructor cues a playlist that’s timed to give you motivation and energy just when you need it. “Giving encouragement directly with motivation means you’ll keep going back,” says
David Stalker, CEO of UK Active. Count us in.
CALORIE BURN: 500 per 45-minute session.
GREAT FOR: Thighs, bum and cardio fitness.

4. BOKWA
The new Zumba
WHAT IT IS: If you have two left feet then Bokwa might be the dance workout for you – as long as you knowthe alphabet. The South Africanborn cardio-dance craze focuses on drawing letters
and numbers with your feet. Then you add shoulder shakes, jumps and… well, whatever you want really. “You’ll end up drippingwith sweat by the end, but it doesn’t even feel like exercise because you’re having fun,” says trainer Giancarla Pozzo. Shimmy on down.
CALORIE BURN: 530 per one-hour session.
GREAT FOR: Intense cardio and flexibility.

5. SANDBELLS
The new dumbbells
WHAT IT IS: These neoprene sand-filled weights are a cross between a sandbag, dumbbell, grip bag, medicine ball and kettlebell. In weights from3kg to 12kg, you can slam, smash, drop and throw them – ideal for circuit training. “You get a diferent workout every time and surprising your body boosts weight loss,” says Lee Matthews, head of fitness at Fitness First.

Pedal power indeed.
CALORIE BURN: 200 per 30-minute session.
GREAT FOR: Saddlebags.

7. BARRECORE
The new Balletcise
WHAT IT IS: Barrecore is a hybrid of Pilates and ballet, with cardio, light weights, isometric movement and, of course, moves at the barre. “The isometric movement drives insulin into the cells,” says Williams. “It helps your body utilise sugar in your bloodstream instead of storing it as fat.” But it’s not all about weight loss. “Ballet improves posture so your waist looks smaller.” Legwarmers optional.
CALORIE BURN: 500-600 per one-hour session.
GREAT FOR: Bum, core and overall toning.

paddleboard yoga instructor Jana Olenio. Worth checking the shipping forecast first.
CALORIE BURN: 276 per
30-minute session.
GREAT FOR: Core and thighs.

What is Coconut Oil?

What is Coconut Oil?
Coconut oil is classified as saturated oil but differs from other saturated fats because of its medium-chain fatty acis composition. The medium-chain-fatty acids (MCFA) are easily digested and broken down to create a healthy digestive system, which enhances the absorption of nutrients and minerals like magnesium, calcium and fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) and amino acids (proteins). Coconut oil is considered a "functional food" which means it acids specific bodily functions beyond its nutritional content. Study shows that it prevents stroke and hardening of arteries, detoxifies the liver, improves thyroid health and strengthens the immune system.

Coconut Oil as a Cellular Food
- Consuming food containing coconut oil can provide your cells with quick, easy nourishment. MCFA can give the cells a much needed energy boost, increase metabolism to help it expel toxins and utilize life-giving oxygen to help it perform at top efficiency.
- A healthy cell means a healthy you.
- Once your cells absorb MCFA to produce the energy needed to power biological function, metabolic activity increase, stimulating healing and repair.

Coconut oil as Anti-microbial
- One characteristic of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) is its ability to kill germs and parasites. The MCT are transformed inside our bodies into monoglyceride of lauric acid (monolaurin) and MCFA, both of which possess powerful anti-microbial properties capable of destroying lipid-coated bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites.
- The lauric acid derivatives is the same lauric acid babies get from mother's milk to keep the infants from getting viral, bacterial or protozoal infections.
- Examples of viruses and bacteria that are inactivated or destroyed are those that cause measles, herpes, HIV, influenza, rubeola, leukemia, streptococcus, listeria and many more.
- Advocates from health sectors call for a study of its potential as a first line of defense against bird flu.

Virgin Coconut Oil "Superior Weapon Against Deadly Cancer"
- It is a sad truth that so many people are afflicted with this fatal disease. Cancer ranks second in the leading cause of death statistics of the United States. It is said that approximately one million people acquire cancer each year.
- But thanks to Virgin Coconut Oil, there is after all a way out of this seemingly hopeless situation.
- Cancer cells keep on growing and dividing and create abnormal cells. Cancer cells may spread and cause problems to other parts of the body. This is triggered by a damage to DNA. Unlike nomal cells, cancer cells cannot repair damaged DNA. Damaged DNA can be acquired through hereditary means or environmental exposure. Most cancers (But not all) are manifested by a tumor.
- The chance of a cancer patient to survive depends largely on how soon the disease was diagnosed and given necessary treatments. Radical change in one's diet and lifestyle is also prescribed.

The Miracle Cure
- Virgin Coconut oil can be uses as a weapon to fight cancer and save precious lives. This statement is proven not only by numerous testimonies of cancer survivors but with the results of medical studies.
- Regular consumption of Virgin Coconut Oil will strengthen the immune system. Only a strong immune system can defeat the formation of cancer cells before they can create major damage. Developing a strong immune system is the first step in prevention and treatment of cancer and other diseases.
- Virgin Coconut Oil can also cure skin cancer as proven in a study where coconut oil is applied on the skin of mice which were applied with cancer causing chemicals.
- Several applications of virgin coconut oil stopped tumor development.
- Therefore, virgin coconut oil can alter the composition of tumor tissue and and thus inhibit tumor growth.

The Virgin Coconut Oil of Youth (Fight Aging Effortlessly!)
- Aging is inevitable. Something we all can't escape. But who wants to grow old? Everybody wants to preserve their is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Aging is all in the mind. Virgin coconut oil is here to let you defy the laws of nature and reverse the passing of time.

- For Some, it  can be a very inconvenient and miserable phase.
- To grow old gracefully, start making necessary changes in your lifestyle now!

Why do You Grow Old?
- Free radicals are the culprit! These are highly reactive molecules missing an electron. In an effort to achieve stability, they steal electrons from other molecules causing other molecules to become free radicals.
- It produces a chain reaction that affects thousands of molecules. Free radicals attack the cells and this may lead to cell mutation and death. Some reseachers consider it as the main cause of aging.
- A lot of diseases are also assocoated with free radicals. To prevent aging and sickness, free radicals should not be permitted to enter our body.
- This however is impossible as it is produced as a part of a normal cellular respiration. Pollutants and other environmental toxins also cause free radicals.
Load Your Body with Antioxidants.
- Antioxidant is your body's natural defense against free radicals. It can stop the chain reaction of free radicals. The amount of antioxidants inside your body depends upon the nutrients we consume.
- However, antioxidants can also be applied on skin to prevent sagging and unsightly wrinkles. If you are already experiencing signs of aging on your skin, chances are the same free radical damage is happening inside your body.
- To prevent premature aging, eat foods rich with vitamins C and E and of course use Virgin Coconut Oil regularly. This will slow down the aging process and will keep you looking and feeling young all over.
- Don't let the years shown on your face. Make your retirement years worthwhile and fulfilling. Use virgin coconut oil!

- All of them can be classified under one general term: autoimmune diseases.
- Virgin Coconut Oil can help treat these sickness.
- A healthy body has a strong immune system that defends the body against the attack of harmful microorganisms. The immune system of a person suffering from an autoimmune behaves differently as instead of killing viruses and bacteria, it inflicts harm upon itself.
- This abnormal action can destroy the body's connective tissues, the one responsible for binding together body tissues and organs. This can creat damage in many parts of the body like nerves, muscles, endocrine, and digestive system.
- More woman develop this sickness especially during their child-bearing years. It can also be acquired through hereditary means.

Types of Autoimmune Diseases
- Underactive Thyroid-Sidns that you are afflicted with this disease will include fatigue, depression, muscle cramps, constipation, being overweight and cold sensitivity.
- Graves disease : If you find it difficult to sleep at night, are always irritable, and you keep on losing weight even if you are not on a diet, chances are you have an overactive thyroid. Sensitivity to heat, muscle weakness, bulging eyes and shaky hands are also symptoms.
- Lupus : This causes damage to organ systems, skin, joints and internal organs. Symptoms will include having rashes on body parts, particularly across the nose and cheeks, swelling joints and sensitivity to sun.
- Multiple Sclerosis : This is associated with a feeling of weakness and trouble in maintaining balance, Tremors, paralysis, speech problems, a numbness and tingling seasation in hands and feet are some of the symptoms.

A Powerful Shield
- The MCFA's of Virgin Coconut Oil is remarkable for its antimicrobial properties that kill harmful viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites.
- This was discovered in 1966 by Jon Kabara Ph.D. in his effort to solve food preparation problems.
- When MCFA's are digested, they are broken down into monoglycerides and free fatty acids.
- Coconut oil by itself cannot destroy disease-causing organisms. To activate antimicrobial properties, it needs to be digested first.
- Important medium chain fatty acids present in coconut oil that possess antimicrobial characteristics are Lauric Acid, Capric acid and Caprylic acid.
- Their monoglyceride form, monolaurin, monocaprylin and monocaprin also hinder microbes from terrorizing the immune system.
- Individually, these fatty acids attack microbes differently.
- Some may beeffective at killing a particular organism that cause fungus infections butis less effective in killing other microbes.
- However, their united activity will provide will provide your body with a very powerful shield against diseases.
- Monolaurin (monoglyceride form of lauric acid) is considered to have the best antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial effect.
- Human breast milk contains medium chain triglyceride (MCTs) that does not only serve as nourishment for newborn infants; it also protects the child from catching diseases.
- This is said to be similar to those found in coconut oil and has the same antimicrobial properties.
- Say goodbye to sickness and poor health. Strengthen your immune system with Virgin Coconut Oil.

Virgin Coconut Oil "Hope for Aids Patients"
- Human immuno-deficienct virus (HIV) is the virus that causes AIDS. It attacks the immune system so a person with HIV becomes susceptible to almost all kinds of infections.
- A person can be infected with the HIV virus for years before it develops into full blown AIDS.
- Once diagnosed with AIDS, a person is expected to live only for 3 years.
- This virus is usually transferred through sexual intercouse, sharing of needles, or any other blood exchange.
- A MOTHER WITH hiv can also transmit the virus to her unborn child.

The Search for Cure
- It was in the 1980's when the ability of medium chain fatty acids like capric and lauric to fight HIV was first discovered.
- Antiviral drugs that are currently being prescribed fail to save lives and restore the health of Aids victim.
- Aside from the fact that the virus can develop resistance to these drugs, it also has lots of adverse side effects.
- Medium chain fatty acids is said to be a more effective cure as it attacks the virus in a different way than other drugs.
- Instead of targeting the genetic material of the virus, MCFA's simply breaks the virus apart. The absorption of MCFAs by the virus weakens the lipid membrane of the virus and will eventually kill the virus.
- This mechanism of action makes it almost impossible for the virus to develop resistant strain to MCFAs.
- Dr. Conrado Dayrit, a medical doctor from the philippines did the first study on coconut oil for treating AIDS patients.
- His study tested the effect of monolaurin and coconut oil in 14 HIV patients, ages ranging from 22-38
- Four grams of monolaurin a day was given to four patients while five of them received 7.2 grams of monolaurin.
- The last group was given 3 1/2 tablespoons of coconut oil per day.
- At the end of the study (six months) the viral count of nine patients decreased.
- Two of them were from the first group, four from the second, and three from the third group.
- Eleven of them showed health improvements.
- This research proves that monolaurin and coconut oil can be used to treat Aids patients.
