We all seek wisdom and guidance from time to time. Some find answers in scripture, or perhaps in the writings of classical philosophers. Zen, TN, or Scientology can help us face the challenges that can confront us. As for me, I find that Hollywood stars supply a wealth of wisdom and direction.
Several weeks ago, I shared some of the insights on child rearing, courtesy of Alicia Silverstone by way of her latest book, “The Kind Mama”. Ms. Silverstone, who pre-chews her sons food before serving, explains the science of child-rearing. In the book, she recommends readers to avoid meat, processed foods, and dairy products to avoid tracking sludge what she refers to as a “baby house”, otherwise known as the “womb”. She also advises avoidance of diapers, vaccinations, and banana. Talk about covering all the bases.
You’ll be glad, or terrified, to know that “The Kind Mama” is currently ranked 13th on Amazon’s “parenting” category.
So it’s obvious that many of us are seeking answers from celebrities.
Which brings us to Gwyneth Paltrow. The UK Daily Mail reports that Ms. Paltrow, star of Shallow Hal, recently posted a piece praising the research (actually life-changing research) done by a Japanese scientist, Masuri Emoto, area of expertise unknown.
Dr. Emoto has published a coffee table book, which Gwyneth displays prominently in her living room. Dr. Emoto’s book, “Messages From Water”, reports that, through years of research he has found that emotions in the presence of water can affect the structure of the H2O molecules. Dr. Emoto exposed beakers of water to anger, and love, then froze the water and observed the ice crystals with a microscope. And yes, he confirmed his hypothesis; that water adsorbs the “resonance” of the energy around it, and that polluted waters can cleansed by prayers and positivity.
Could this finding end the need to safeguard our water supply though filtration and chlorination (which environmentalist hate anyway). We can simply join hands around MDC reservoir number 4, and think good thoughts.
Naturally, other scientists were unable to re-create Dr. Emoto’s findings and so discounted his theory. But as is the case with any “settled science”, there are always “deniers”.

Finally, accusations are flying concerning the acts of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow platoon members charge that at best, he was AWOL- at worst, he aided the Taliban in their attacks on U S solders. Naturally government officials are countering the charges, among them, Brandon Friedman, who holds the lofty post of Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development sent the following tweet:
“Here’s the thing about Bergdahl and the Jump-to-Conclusions mats: What if his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership? (1/5)”
Well played, Sir!
After all, who would know more about the military than the Deputy Assistant Secretary Of Public Affairs at HUD?
