OK, we know it's summer, and it is more difficult to cover up all those extra pounds compared to the winter months when coats are our best friends. So, why bother? In a country where more than half the women wear a size 12 or above, it makes sense to just take a deep breath and appreciate our bodies no matter how many swimsuits we've tried in the past month. Instead of sweating the small stuff we can't squeeze into (including that itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny bikini), it's time to focus on looking our best — no matter what size we wear.

As the hysteria surrounding the swine flu begins to subside, so do the unanswered questions about the origin of the disease. While a 24-hour news cycle incessantly tallies each and every victim, few networks have reported on the possible source of the outbreak.
In a scenario we see all too often whenever new viruses emerge, nearly every aspect of this outbreak is overly sensationalized. The same thing happened when several isolated cases of avian flu, Monkeypox, West Nile and SARS made daily headlines.
