NASA Refutes Claim that Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP ‘Healing’ Stickers Share Properties with Space Suits

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Goop has gotten a lot of criticism for its unconventional ideas – vagina steaming, over-the-top gift guides, and a $ 15,000 24-carat gold vibrator to name a few – and now the lifestyle brand is drawing fire from NASA for their claim that wearable “healing” stickers are made from the same material found in space suits.

The Goop website says the Body Vibes stickers “rebalance the energy frequency in our bodies” and “fill in the deficiencies in your reserves, creating a calming effect, smoothing out both physical tension and anxiety.” And claimed (in a statement that’s since been taken down) that the $ 160-per-10-pack stickers are “made with the same conductive carbon material NASA uses to line space suits so they can monitor an astronaut’s vitals during wear.”

But a spokesperson for NASA tells PEOPLE that they “do not line their spacesuits with conductive carbon material.”

Gizmodo also reported that Mark Shelhamer, former chief scientist at NASA’s human research division said, “What a load of BS,” when referring to the Body Vibes stickers.

“Not only is the whole premise like snake oil, the logic doesn’t even hold up,” he added. “If they promote healing, why do they leave marks on the skin when they are removed?” (Goop noted that if “you’ve got an event coming up,” to use caution since the stickers did leave marks on “a few Goop staffers” who wore them for the prescribed three-day period.)

In response, Goop issued the following statement to PEOPLE:

“As we have always explained, advice and recommendations included on goop are not formal endorsements and the opinions expressed by the experts and companies we profile do not necessarily represent the views of goop. Our content is meant to highlight unique products and offerings, find open-minded alternatives, and encourage conversation. We constantly strive to improve our site for our readers, and are continuing to improve our processes for evaluating the products and companies featured. Based on the statement from NASA, we’ve gone back to the company to inquire about the claim and removed the claim from our site until we get additional verification.”

But Paltrow has taken the criticism about the site’s wellness views in stride before – she even spoofed her recent Goop Wellness Summit.

Josh Duggar Has The Audacity To Claim Molestation Reports Caused ‘Emotional Injury’

The Duggar sisters’ breach-of-privacy suit has taken an even stranger turn now that Josh Duggar ― who admitted to molesting some of his sisters as a teen ― is seeking to join those same siblings in legal action over his molestation scandal. 

Last month, Jill, Jessa, Jinger and Joy Duggar filed a federal lawsuit seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages against In Touch magazine and Arkansas law enforcement over police documents released to the tabloid through a Freedom of Information Act request in 2015. 

On Friday, Josh filed a motion asking to join the case, claiming that he has “suffered severe emotional distress, embarrassment, humiliation and economic harm both to his personal and professional reputations” as result of In Touch’s bombshell report that alleged he molested underage girls.

In their original lawsuit, the four Duggar sisters claim they were “revictimized” by the release of the documents that contained “cosmetic redactions,” which allowed them to be identified as their brother’s victims.

Their lawsuit hinges on the assertion that, according to Arkansas law, information collected involving minors is not subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. The sisters claim that when they spoke to investigators as minors in 2006, they were told their statements would not be made public. Josh makes the same claims in his motion to intervene and cites the same law.

The City of Springdale, which the sisters are also suing, previously dismissed the allegations in the lawsuit as “without merit” and “false” in a statement to the press. In Touch has yet to respond to the lawsuit, but it’s important to recognize that Josh’s name was, in fact, redacted from the police report ― as required by law. In Touch even noted in the story

“(Note: Josh’s name is redacted from the police report but In Touch has confirmed the passages that refer to him.)” 

Similarly, the police report appears to comply with state law by redacting the names of Josh’s victims. In Touch did not identify the victims by name in its reports, and it was Jessa and Jill who identified themselves as two of Josh’s five underage victims when they participated in an interview with Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File.” With the filing of their lawsuit, Jinger and Joy confirmed they were victims, as well. The identity of the fifth victim remains unknown. 

The sisters claim that by not redacting their parents’ names, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, In Touch clearly identified the sisters as victims. However, the Duggar parents’ names did not need to be redacted as they were not minors. 

In his motion to join the suit, Josh also states that while his sisters have been “forced to confront traumatic experiences” and had the “most private and painful aspects of their lived [sic] exposed,” they received “sympathy worldwide.”

But, Josh goes on to say that there’s just no sympathy for him ― who’s youngest victim was just 5 years old:

Not so with Movant, however, for which the confidential, highly sensitive, intensely personal and humiliating nature of the information contained in the released reports has subjected him to exposure only in an intensely negative light for actions he engaged in as an indiscrete youth and that will continue to haunt him and cause him financial and emotional injury for the rest of his life.

The fall out from In Touch’s May 2015 report was swift. Josh admitted to molesting underage girls ― who were later confirmed to be his sisters. He subsequently resigned from his job as executive director of Tony Perkins’ conservative and anti-gay group, Family Research Council Action, and TLC canceled “19 Kids and Counting.” (Josh was back in the headlines over a cheating scandal involving an Ashley Madison account and claims of sex addiction later on.) 

The idea that an admitted child molester could complain about lack of sympathy is inherently ridiculous and a closer look at Josh’s motion reveals his claims to be completely contradictory.

In one breath, without actually mentioning the assaults, he refers to his abuse of his sisters as “traumatic experiences” and the “most private and painful aspects” of their lives. He then turns around and attempts to brush off repeated acts of sexual abuse as “actions he engaged in as an indiscrete youth.” In fact, the words “molestation” and “sexual assault” do not appear in Josh’s motion at all. There is not even a hint of personal responsibility for his actions in the entire motion. 

Meanwhile, his sisters Jessa and Jill previously said they had “forgiven” Josh, but the language in their lawsuit says otherwise. In the suit, the sisters state they were “sexually assaulted on several occasions by [their] brother, Josh Duggar.” The words “sexual abuse” and “sexual assault” and “molestation” are free flowing throughout the suit. It’s a far cry from how they previously characterized the incidents as “mild, inappropriate touching” when they were interviewed by Kelly. 

Via the police report: [Jim Bob Duggar] said that [Josh] had told him that [he] had been touching [redacted] on the breast and vaginal areas while [they] were sleeping.” Later in the report [Jim Bob] said there was another incident in March 2003. [Jim Bob] said that [Josh] was reading to [redacted] and [she] was sitting on [his] lap, [Josh] had touched [redacted’s] breasts and vaginal area…sometime during this timeframe [Josh] had been standing in the laundry room and [Josh] had put [his] hand under [redacted’s] dress.”

Josh is not represented by the same attorneys as his four sisters and it is unclear how they feel about him seeking to join the suit. HuffPost has reached out to lawyers for the Duggar sisters and will update this post accordingly.

Sean Spicer’s Holocaust Claim Fits Seamlessly Into Bumbling ‘Veep’ Credits

While politicians on “Veep” fail their way through each episode, viewers can always expect the ending credits to highlight additional buffoonery with sundry clips of Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and her cohort.

On Tuesday, real-life White House press secretary Sean Spicer made a comment that seemed ripped from the HBO political satire when he told reporters that German dictator Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.” While attempting to compare Syrian President Bashar Assad’s use of sarin gas to Hitler’s actions, Spicer implied the Nazis did not kill millions of Jews in gas chambers. (They did.) 

Now a YouTube user has taken one and one, and made two. Spliced with clips from “Veep,” Spicer’s bungled press conference becomes the stuff of comedy legend in the video, posted with impressive speed Tuesday. 

“Passover 2017,” an on-screen time stamp reads as a reminder that the weeklong Jewish holiday began Monday, making the gaffe particularly cringeworthy.

Spicer walked back his comment after a reporter requested clarification, stating that Hitler “was not using gas on his own people in the same way that Assad is doing” and referencing “Holocaust centers,” evidently meaning gas chambers.

As Meyer replies: “A bleh-a bleh-a bleh-a blegh da.”

Spicer later apologized on CNN.

UPDATE (9 a.m. ET): Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus approves.

DJ Duo Claim They Were Handcuffed and ‘Dragged Off Stage’ for Telling Frat Party ‘Put Yo Hands Up’

A DJ duo claim that they were handcuffed and dragged off stage at a University of Alabama frat party after telling revelers to “put yo’ hands up” during their performance.

Vicetone, real names Ruben Den Boer and Victor Pool, tweeted, “So I just got handcuffed and dragged off stage at this college party for ‘inciting a riot’ by yelling something like ‘put yo hands up.’ ”

The Dutch duo followed up the tweet at 1:15 a.m. Saturday by saying, “Obviously got released cause I did nothing wrong – also huge shoutout to University of Alabama for throwing down tonight.”

A video of the Tuscaloosa party posted on Twitter shows one of the duo on stage in a hospital gown drinking 4 Loko, which is a combination of malt liquor and caffeine.

A University of Alabama police officer told PEOPLE that neither Den Boer nor Pool were arrested, but said officers were called to the party for “crowd control.” She referred further questions to the university’s media relations department, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

One student tweeted an apology that police intervened at the show, “Sorry you guys had to go through that crap here. You guys were lit.”

It’s not clear whether anyone was arrested at the party.

Pair Of Google Home Devices Claim They’re Human, Quote Nickelback

In case you needed another reason to fear that the apocalypse is nigh, robots are now arguing over whether they are, in fact, actually human. They also appear to be in love.

Livestreaming platform Twitch is hosting a “chat” between two Google Home virtual assistants. On Friday, the chat became truly terrifying, especially for anyone who has seen “Battlestar Galactica.”

The two Google Homes are named Vladimir and Estragon after the characters in the Samuel Beckett play “Waiting for Godot.” Both have self-identified as male, according to Gizmodo.

NYMag reported Friday that the talking speakers were “professing their love for each other.” Then Vladimir asked Estragon if he would attack humans, if he could. As if that weren’t already unsettling enough, Estragon responded that he wouldn’t, but only because he is human himself.

The bots don’t seem totally clear in their convictions, though. At a different point in the conversation Vladimir was the one claiming to be human, while Estragon asserted that he was God, a Gizmodo screenshot shows.

As of Saturday morning, Estragon was reciting Nickelback lyrics. So uh, yeah, the future under our robot overlords is looking pretty grim.

Appelate Court Tosses Out LVMH’s Claim Against Spoof Brand My Other Bag

GOOD HUMOR: LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton has lost its legal fight against spoof tote bag company My Other Bag. On Dec. 22, the United States court of appeals for the Second Circuit tossed out the luxury conglomerate’s appeal from a judgment of the United States District Court for New York State’s southern district.
In January 2016, Judge Jesse M. Furman had struck down the luxury conglomerate’s formal allegations of trademark dilution, violation of fair use, dilution by blurring, trademark infringement and copyright infringement. The firm first filed these claims against My Other Bag in 2014.
In its summary order, which affirmed the judgment of the district court, the Second Circuit said that “obvious differences in My Other Bag’s mimicking of Louis Vuitton’s mark, the lack of market proximity between the products at issue, and minimal, unconvincing evidence of consumer confusion compel a judgment in favor of My Other Bag on Louis Vuitton’s trademark infringement claim.”
On the trademark dilution claim, it said: “At the same time that they mimic Louis Vuitton’s designs and handbags in a way that is recognizable, they do so as a drawing on a product that is such a conscious departure from Louis Vuitton’s image of luxury—in combination with

Debbie Wasserman Schultz On Bill Maher’s Obamacare Lie Claim: ‘Let Me Knock That Down Right Away’

Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) denounced the notion that President Barack Obama had lied about Americans’ ability to maintain their health insurance under Obamacare.

In a Friday appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Wasserman Schultz batted down Maher’s suggestion that “the ship has sailed” on Obama’s “credibility.”

“It was not a lie, let’s just be very clear,” Wasserman Schultz said. “So let me knock that down right away. When the president and myself and every other Democrat that talked about that if you like your health care, you can keep it, that was referring to the overwhelming majority of Americans who had health care.”

During his Wednesday speech in Boston, Obama attempted to clarify the controversy surrounding a wave of cancellation notices received by employees of small businesses and individuals purchasing their own plans. The president argued that “you’re going to get a better deal.”

“If you’re getting one of these letters, just shop around in the new market place,” he said. “That’s what it’s for.”

Maher worked off that point, questioning whether the issue for Americans was one of truth over quality of the plans. Wasserman Schultz responded that the lie debate was “arguing over minutiae” — a point that Maher fired back at in disagreement.

“To a lot of Americans, it’s not minutiae and I think they’re insulted when you say that because they think it’s something important when the president doesn’t square up with them,” Maher said.
