Bikini 60 years old and still turning heads


BEACH ICON
BEACH ICON
That thong bikini bottom and barely-there top may raise eyebrows among onlookers at the local pool, but it took a lot less bare skin to turn heads 60 years ago.

The first time Amy Hardwick, 52, sported a bikini as a 15-year-old in the late 1960s, it took her father mere seconds to express shock at his daughter's newest piece of swimwear.

"I went in the yard to lay out and I heard, 'AMY SUE!'" the Virginia woman recalled, laughing. "And my dad was standing there."  By today's standards, Hardwick wouldn't call that particular swimsuit a bikini, as its high waist and full back offered more coverage than what many teen girls wear to school these days, she said. But back then, showing even a glimpse of bare midriff was considered scandalous - at least among the older generation.

New cell phones aim to make the call with older folks


Today's cell phones take pictures, play games, and let you surf the Web. But the phones have tiny buttons and hard-to-read screens, not very user-friendly for older people. And this generation is not likely to use all the minutes and data traffic allotted in a monthly plan.

Fortunately, there are phones and plans geared specifically to the elderly. You have to look for them, because most aren't available in cell stores. So, here are some products aimed at older folks:

Navy SEALs are looking for a few good ultra-athletes


OVERCOMING OBSTACLES
OVERCOMING OBSTACLES
With sweat soaking his tattered tank top, Petty Officer 1st Class David Goggins hit the finish-line tape high on the slopes of California's Mount Whitney. He took fifth place recently in a 30-hour foot race from the floor of Death Valley.

For Goggins, a Navy SEAL based in Coronado, Calif., running a 135-mile ultra-marathon in 120-degree heat across a desert and three mountain ranges is more than an adventure.

It's a job.

"One hundred and thirty-five miles - that's a lot of time to meet people," said Goggins, a SEAL recruiter.

He will compete in more races during the months to come. His work is part of the military's new efforts to boost significantly the ranks of special operations forces, including the SEALs, by attracting high-endurance athletes.
