SCIENTISTS HAVE invented a new suit for swimmers that is both aero- and hydro- dynamic. The powers that be in the strange world of the pool want to ban it. Listen, the swimmers who don't wear it lose! Those who do, win - and mostly in record time. I don't see any old propeller plane passengers refusing the reality that jets are twice as fast and safe. The suits aren't dangerous and even if they were, where are the swimmers going to fall? They're already in the water! Steroids banned, bats uncorked, suits outlawed.

Where was supermodel Heidi Klum last night? She wasn't at Sports Illustrated's press conference or premiere party for its annual swimsuit issue in New York yesterday. Klum was said to be "furious" when she found out that she wasn't going to grace the cover, as she did last year. That honor went to stunning newcomer Yamila Diaz-Rahi. However, we hear that Klum's agent, Ivan Bart, insists she wasn't angry. "The decision was made two weeks ago after Heidi got a great booking in Germany," he said.

Two of America's most familiar magazines shed a pretense this month. In doing so, they met in the middle - or shall we say, midriff. Sports Illustrated issued its famous swimsuit issue, that annual midwinter cavalcade of bared beauty, strained poses, unwearable fashions, and arch prose that stuffs AOL-Time Warner's needy coffers and boggles adolescent brains. No surprise there. More impressive was columnist Rick Reilly's tongue-in-cheek admission on the back page that SI has just about run out of journalistic veneer to slap onto this profitable exercise in ogling.

The fretting begins in February, when the Valentine's Day chocolate is gone. Step up the aerobics, you tell yourself. Four times a week. No excuses. In April, the thick sweaters go into storage and the melting snow reminds you summer is just around the corner. Four times a week, you pledge. Again. Suddenly, it's here. The sun. The warmth. The kind of weather that demands short skirts, sleeveless tops and - yikes! - a swimsuit. Are your thighs ready? Your arms?

When the swimsuits at the front of the display bristle with tags declaring "tummy trimmer," "hip hider" and "redefine," you know this is the era of the baby-boomer bulge. So it's not surprising that designers are vying with one another to offer the best fit and the most flattering suit. It probably has never been easier to find a style that will accentuate the positive - and definitely downplay the negative. Carol Wior started it all some years back when she patented the Slimsuit, said Carolyn Moss, fashion director at Macy's.

Q: I have really wide shoulders. This looks fine when I'm wearing clothes. In fact, I believe it makes my clothes hang better. And I never need shoulder pads. But in a swimsuit I look like a colossus. What style of swimsuit should I wear to minimize this problem? A: Look for a swimsuit with a deep or narrow neckline such as a heart- shaped sweetheart neckline or a halter neckline that angles in toward the face. Avoid wide necklines and strapless styles. And while on the subject of necklines, remember that the way a swimsuit is shaped at the top can influence the way the entire suit looks.

SOME ADVICE for Katherine Connors, who is throwing out the first pitch before tonight's Phillies at Nationals game: Block out the throng that shows up to see Roy Oswalt make his Phillies debut. Don't bounce the ball to the plate. And, oh yeah, wear a bikini and heels. Connors, the reigning Miss Iowa, was invited to throw out the first pitch after Nationals pitcher Miguel Batista unintentionally dissed her Tuesday night. That was after he was booed when it was announced he was starting in place of rookie phenom Stephen Strasburg, who had a stiff right shoulder.

Hey, it's summertime! Time for fun 'n' sun at the beach 'n' pool! And you know what that means, guys 'n' gals! It means you're too big 'n' fat. Especially you gals. I don't care if you spent the entire winter doing leg lifts and eating reduced-calorie celery; I don't care if you recently underwent liposuction with an industrial fire hose; you're still nowhere near ready to put on modern, high-tech female swimwear. I recently passed a store that had, as its window display, what appeared to have been a small red party balloon that had popped, so there was just this sad little shred hanging there.

MISS TEEN USA is dropping the swimsuit competition. The Miss Universe Organization announced Wednesday that gawking at teenage girls in swimsuits didn't fit with the pageant's mission to promote education and "active, purposeful lives. " So instead of wearing swimsuits, the young contestants will now wear athletic wear. But hopefully not those new Nike tennis dresses. The elimination of swimsuits is welcome news for 2015 Miss Teen USA Katherine Haik of Louisiana. The 16-year-old fought to have the swimsuit competition eliminated because it sexualized teenage girls.

This year's Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue features a real Philly girl next door. Doylestown's Samantha Hoopes is one of 12 rookies - meaning, new to the SI swimsuit scene - in the issue's 50th anniversary edition. "People actually know my name now," Hoopes, 23, said in a telephone interview while on a Malibu Beach in between taking pictures for the Latin version of Esquire magazine. "It's all been very unreal. " In the sure-to-be-a-collectors-item issue, Hoopes tapped her inner temptress in a breast-baring black one-piece bathing suit, a one-shouldered version of the white fishnet suit worn in the 1978 issue by Cheryl Tiegs (also featured in the "Legends" portion of this issue)

WE STILL bleed Eagles green, but … We have to admit that the latest issue of the Dallas Cowboys Star magazine could make us at least consider rooting for America's Team. That's because it's the swimsuit issue and features over 80 pages of photos of bikini-clad Cowboys cheerleaders, including Brittney Schram, who is pictured here. The photos are presented in three sections: Caribbean Queens, Celestial Bodies and Twilight Treasures. We're told there were also some articles in the magazine.

Nonscripted shows used to strive to bring the best and the brightest into our living rooms, but they now bring the worst and the dumbest. Jennelle Evans , the North Carolina woman from MTV's "Teen Mom 2," has been charged with making harassing phone calls and communicating threats - just another day at the office if Jennelle had a job. She was released on $1,000 bond shortly after her arrest Tuesday.

And here I sit, bewildered, with how many more years of bliss ahead of me? Steve: You've never tried the turtle position? Mia: When's the last time you gave her a leisurely back massage?
