Silverstone 'body odour issue'

Alicia Silverstone reportedly upset fellow yogis with her foul body odour during a recent retreat.

The 36-year-old Clueless star enjoyed a weekend getaway at the We Care Spa in Palm Springs, according to America’s Us Weekly magazine.

Alicia, who reportedly refuses to wear deodorant, is said to have upset her yoga class with her body odour.

"She stank. It was especially noticeable during the yoga classes,” a source claimed.

The actress’s supposed friend tells the magazine that although she does bathe, Alicia declines to use hygiene products.

"Alicia is clean, but she is very New Age-y. She doesn't use deodorant and doesn't like to overbite and strip her body of its natural oils,” the insider said.

Alicia often talks about healthy and organic living on her blog The Kind Life, offering tips on everything from exercise to vegan hygiene and meal plans.

Last year, the actress blogged about her love for natural deodorants as an alternative to chemical-ridden commercial products she believes could cause serious health issues.

“Protecting your pits with natural deodorant is an easy way you can go green & healthy,” she wrote.

“Regular antiperspirants prevent your body's normal sweating function by blocking glands with aluminum molecules so small they can enter the blood stream. Though highly debated, it has been suggested that this might put you more at risk for breast cancer and Alzheimer's disease. Why be at risk when you could be kind to your body?”

Alicia most recently garnered controversy for beginning a breast milk exchange service on the site.

The Kind Mama Milk Share was born after a close friend struggled to breastfeed her newborn.

"Because of a breast reduction surgery she was unable to make enough milk for him, no matter how much precious boobie time they spent together,” Alicia wrote.

"She tried reaching out in her community for donor milk, but it was almost impossible to figure out what kind of lifestyle choices the donors had made.

"She had a right to demand better for her baby.”

Alicia then appeared to address warnings from the US Food and Drug Administration that unscreened donors could have viruses including HIV.

"It goes without saying that common-sense precautions should be taken,” she insisted.

    Treasure trove of British newsreels reveals Top Gear's ancestors

    Long after television grew to dominate American and British homes, newsreel producer British Pathé kept at it, documenting the news of the day until finally ceasing production of new short films in 1970 after 60 years of effort. Last week, all of British Pathé's 85,000 films were put online — including dozens of fascinating, rare and often weird car films that resemble nothing so much as a jet-age Top Gear.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
