School board member resigns after Zoom meeting bathroom mishap

A New Jersey woman who once said she was “disgusted” by LGBT curriculum flushed her career on a local school board down the toilet this week by accidentally broadcasting her bathroom break on Zoom during a public meeting.

Frances Cogelja resigned as a trustee of the Hackensack Board of Education over the embarrassing video fail Monday night when she brought her laptop into the bathroom to relieve herself, according to the Daily Voice.

Cogelja apparently was unaware she’d left the camera on — and her trip to the toilet was witnessed by nearly 140 attendees of the virtual meeting, including students.

The board’s Vice President Scott James-Vickery addressed the NSFW spectacle later on.

“As far as I’m concerned, while our teachers are being professional and you’re at home, sitting on the toilet, we are moving on with this district doing what’s best,” he said.

Cogelja’s resignation was announced by the

Are YOUR bad bathroom habits damaging your health?

While this year has seen us washing our hands more than ever, some of us may still be guilty of making the most basic hygiene mistakes at home, especially in the bathroom.

Intimate health expert Stephanie Taylor, managing director of StressNoMore, has revealed how common mistakes could potentially lead to more serious problems, including urinary tract infections and pelvic floor damage. 

Bad habits include spending too long on the loo, taking your phone with you into the bathroom and leaving your wet towels lying around after showering.

Late night bathroom trip saves campers from wildfire

A late-night bathroom trip saved this group of campers. Four friends and one of their sons were in the Northern New Mexico mountains when Ryan Holets woke up because of shoulder pain.”When I woke up it just wasn’t letting me sleep, and I was sitting there kind of just like, ‘Man, why is this bothering me? I really would like to be sleeping. I wish the pain would go away,” he said. It was then he saw the fire headed toward the group’s campsite. “I saw the entire sky to our south and east was just orange,” he said. He rushed back to his group to wake them up and get them out. “And they’re like, ‘Fire! Fire! Fire! Grab everything!’ And I was like, ‘Get dressed man, there’s a fire coming and we gotta go. We gotta get out of here,’” Matt Fisher, also on the trip, said. The

10 humidity-loving houseplants that will thrive in the bathroom

In your eagerness to add warmth to your interiors during the quarantine gardening boom, don’t forget about one humidity-filled haven: the bathroom.

“Bathrooms are a fun category,” said Annette Gutierrez of the Los Angeles plant store Potted. “I’ve got a whole hoya thing happening in mine. I love how they hang. Hanging plants are great in the bathroom where counter space is at a premium, and since most houseplants are tropicals, they love the humidity.”

Filled with moisture, bathrooms are an ideal environment for humidity-loving houseplants. But don’t substitute humidity for watering. “You still have to water your plants,” Gutierrez added.

Bloomscape plant expert Joyce Mast finds the bathroom a fun place to experiment. You can place them on a shelf, mount them on tile with adhesive-backed hooks or hang them from a tension rod. “Don’t be afraid to place plants in the shower,” Mast said. “They will love the
