Cosmic Forecast, May 31-June 6

Be as invisible as the wind. Those who are invisible carry no grudges, have no physical worries or problems and incur no debts. The invisible owe nothing, and therefore, nothing is owed to them — for in truth, they have no pockets. Let the winds of the wise carry our voices to each other, caress and cool our skin, and subtly, subconsciously guide us toward our truest direction. Here’s this week’s roadmap. Bon voyage! -Michelle Bonsoir.

Flesh-eating Bacteria Topped with Honey

Though the numbers are actually miniscule, especially when compared to the number of people killed by the Standard American Diet, the recent rash of flesh-eating bacteria incidents makes headlines. The media attention reminds us that simple cuts and abrasions are an affront to our bodily defenses against bacterial invasion. Taking care to address a minor injury can divert devastating consequences. There are some natural alternatives that can be successful in helping the body defeat bacteria that might otherwise seek an opportunistic entry when we suffer a wound. With simple cuts and wounds that are something we would ordinarily treat at home, honey is a healthcare hero.

Honey for woundcare. My roommate in Burbank owned a big, happy Bassett…

Shirtless Man Seen Doing Nothing Wrong

Report by Will Meinen of the Omaha Tattler.

OMAHA, Neb. — "No I didn't just have a domestic dispute with my wife," said the exasperated man standing outside of CVS pharmacy, his black Pantera shirt in hand. "I'm waiting for a friend to pick me up."

The man in faded blue jeans and worn, white New Balance sneakers had been answering similar questions all afternoon. He avoided eye contact when asked about the possibility of a domestic scuffle, and tapped his feet nervously from side to side, keeping an eye out for his friend's 1998 blue Dodge Dakota. On his left bicep was a black ink tattoo of the face of his 3-year-old daughter, on his right…

Cosmic Forecast, May 24-May 30

Ahhh… Gemini — the breath (air sign) of spring. In astrological mathematical parlance: Aries + Taurus = (the duality of) Gemini. Ahhh…the ability to perceive both sides of the truth — at the same time! Let’s have some fun! Time to talk, talk, talk, talk, talk — and eventually communicate? Me first…

Sunburned Eyeballs and Other Cautionary Tales

You don’t have to have a weather app to know it’s been a warm spring and that summer is leering right around the corner. As Earth transits the annual circle of the Sun, our axial tilt leans the Northern Hemisphere more directly into the radiant glow. More than in winter, sunlight comes intensely to us through less atmospheric filtering. Based on what the Mad Men say, Americans will be rushing to slather on sunscreen and spending billions of bucks on ways to block the sunlight.

Here Comes the Sun. Sunlight is good for us, indeed, essential. We are beings of light. Millions of bodily processes happen because of sunlight. Yet, despite our dependence on the sun, modern man…
