It Was 2 A.M. And George Russell Was In The Bathroom When He Got The Call From Mercedes F1

If you’re in the bathroom at 2 a.m. that usually doesn’t signify good things. For George Russell, though, that happened to be the right place and the right time, as that’s when he got the call to drive for the Mercedes-AMG F1 team at this weekend’s Sakhir Grand Prix. Russell, a driver for Williams Racing most weekends, will replace Lewis Hamilton, who’s tested positive for COVID-19.

Here’s how Russell said the call went down, via Formula1.com:

“I got a phone call from Toto [Wolff, Mercedes Team Principal] at 2am on Tuesday morning,” said Russell. “I was actually in the bathroom at that moment, which was slightly awkward. He answered the phone and said, ‘George, are you in the bathroom?’ and I said, ‘Sorry, I am in the bathroom’.

“And he said ‘unfortunately Lewis has caught Covid, he’s doing well, he’s healthy and feels fine

Belgians can invite guests for Christmas amid coronavirus pandemic, but only one can use the bathroom

The four-person rule will apply for Christmas, and authorities are trying to make sure that people who show up for backyard celebrations do not end up spending time indoors. Anyone inviting guests over needs to have a garden or backyard that can be accessed without walking through the house, which essentially means that people who live in detached homes can have guests over but those who live in rowhouses cannot. “You are not allowed to go through an interior space first, because then there is a risk that many people will be together in a small space,” Interior Minister Annelies Verlinden told Het Laatste Nieuws on Monday.

A spokesperson for Verlinden added another major caveat: Only one guest who is chosen as a “close contact” can be allowed inside the house to use the bathroom. Other visitors are banned from going inside for any reason, including grabbing a drink or

A New Day for Queer People in the South

CHAPEL HILL, N.C.—Allison Scott has waited years for this day to come. This day, specifically. Scott’s job is advocating for LGBTQ rights in the South, and for four years, her home state of North Carolina has prohibited towns and cities from passing new protections for queer people. Today, that ban is finally dead—and North Carolina has an opportunity to change the reputation it earned in the 2016 fight over H.B. 2, the so-called bathroom bill.

Scott, the director of policy and programs at the Asheville-based Campaign for Southern Equality, believes that, despite its eventual repeal and replacement, H.B. 2 encouraged homophobia and transphobia in North Carolina and across the country. The bill passed just a few months after Scott came out as a transgender woman. “H.B. 2 was definitely not the start of hate or discrimination,” she told me. “But it did seem to symbolically

Like millions of Americans, Sherry Haines has had COVID-19. But Haines has an underlying health condition that made the virus especially risky for her—she has stage 4 lung cancer.

Haines, 50, tells Yahoo Life that she knew something was off in late June when she developed “extreme fatigue,” along with several other symptoms.  “My throat was sore, and I had headaches and muscle aches, I was horribly nauseous and was starting to get chills,” she says. “I just knew that I probably had the virus.”

The Florida resident says she was “a little scared” but notes that her she was otherwise healthy. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2018 and says, while it will never go away, the medication she takes has cleared

LGBTQ Rights in North Carolina After the ‘Bathroom Bill’

Passing new local protections in North Carolina could be the key to wider changes across the South, Scott and her allies argue. For queer-rights advocates, local legislation has become more crucial than ever, because Donald Trump and his Republican allies have rolled back federal and state protections over the past four years. But major obstacles to this plan lie ahead.

Among the most significant is that the Republican-run state legislature could try to renew the state’s ban on local protections—or even resurrect H.B. 2 itself. H.B. 2 first arose in response to the city of Charlotte’s passage of a local LGBTQ-rights ordinance. In 2016, the state GOP “decided that culture-war issues ought to take precedence over traditional conservative preference for local control,” The Atlantic’s David A. Graham wrote at the time. Sure, H.B. 2 went on to cause massive economic and reputational problems for the state, and arguably contributed

San Leandro woman charged with ‘particularly cruel’ torture of 9-year-old allegedly found locked in bathroom with broken ribs, injured liver

SAN LEANDRO — A woman has been ordered to stand trial on charges that she tortured her 9-year-old son, allegedly keeping the boy barricaded inside a bathroom where local police found him suffering from numerous serious injuries in January court records show.

Shawanda Black, 25, is due in court Tuesday, facing charges of torture, mayhem, and false imprisonment by violence. She was ordered to stand trial after a preliminary hearing in September, and has been incarcerated at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin since her arrest 10 months ago, court records show.

A doctor who examined the boy’s injuries — among them, a broken back, multiple broken ribs, an injury to his liver and open wounds all over his body — noted they were “particularly cruel and brutal” and the result of physical abuse, police have alleged in court records. The boy was discovered “cowering” inside the bathroom where he was

TikTok user ‘grills’ steak in airplane bathroom, draws criticism from viewers and airlines alike: ‘Disgusted’

A comedian from New York is catching a lot of heat for an unsavory cooking tutorial he recorded in an airplane restroom.

The man, identified as Marcus Monroe, had recently shared footage of himself “grilling” a steak over a fire he started in the toilet of what appeared to be a Delta aircraft bathroom, and then taking the steak back to his seat to enjoy on the flight.

“They don’t have hot meals anymore on airplanes so… I come up with a solution,” he reportedly wrote in the caption of the now-deleted video, according to the International Business Times.

Some might see an airplane toilet. One TikTok user, however, saw a grill waiting to be fired up.
