Despite all the disruption to TV schedules due to the coronavirus pandemic this year, the Great British Bake Off has managed to film a 2020 series.

Arriving a little later than usual, GBBO kicks off on Channel 4 on Tuesday after a huge behind-the-scenes operation ensured it was safe to shoot.

While viewers supposedly won’t be able to tell the show was filmed in unusual circumstances, there will be one obvious change as Matt Lucas has replaced Sandi Toksvig as a presenter.

As summer unfolds into autumn GBBO is reliably comforting fare for this time of year and a welcome distraction but that doesn’t mean it’s guaranteed to always be plain sailing.

Stock photography first began to take hold in the 1920s, with private companies building vast catalogues of professional images, which could be licensed to individual customers at a cost. In the 1990s companies sold batches of these stock photos to clients on CD Roms. Today, there are millions of photographs accessible in the digital archives of brands like Shutterstock, iStock and Getty Images, available to decorate online journalism, billboards, newsletters, and just about anything else you could need.

While the subject matter of stock photos varies from dogs playing the piano in a nightclub, to a pensioner sipping wine through a straw (wearing a face mask and surrounded by toilet roll), the final destination of the pictures is even more unpredictable. Used on everything from articles with unfortunate headlines to advertising embarrassing products – how does it feel to be the face associated with it? Especially when

Invisible labor is real, and it hurts: What you need to know
Invisible labor is real, and it hurts: What you need to know

Let’s say it’s a Monday afternoon. There’s a litany of chores that someone in your household will have to do eventually: Dinner needs cooking, the kids need homework help, a dentist appointment isn’t going to make itself.

If you’re the person picking up all of those chores, there’s a term for that: invisible labor.

NEXT STORY:

It’s something that falls primarily on the shoulders of women. In the U.S., married mothers spend nearly double the time on housework and childcare that American fathers do.

The phenomenon is far from new, but the coronavirus pandemic has shifted things even further. With many families quarantining together at home, disparities in the unsung labor of our daily lives have become much more evident — and a lot more urgent for families to try to fix. “All the things that used to

From sibling fights to bedtime squabbles, these are the most common concerns parents bring up…and how to address them.

1. I feel so overwhelmed and stressed

Whether you are a parent who stays at home, works from home or works outside the home, you are probably feeling stressed the heck out right now. This stress is often referred to as the mental load, which accounts for all the lists, tasks and responsibilities parents (mostly mothers) manage on a daily basis. It sounds and looks like this: A mom of three wraps up her evening by making a list of what needs to be done the next day, all while trying to fold the laundry

In these Insta-perfect times the desire for a pearly white smile is strong, with research by Mintel revealing more than a third of adults have considered getting their teeth whitened.

Of course, the safest way to achieve a Hollywood smile is by heading to a certified pro, but with dental clinics closed for treatments during lockdown, many have been turning to at home DIY whitening treatments for a quick fix.

More than half (52%) of the people surveyed in the Mintel report, were using at home teeth whitening kits at least once a day, while a previous survey by Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors revealed that of the quarter (24%) of people who had whitened their teeth, the majority (68%) had used a home whitening kit.

But a new report by Which? has suggested wannabe-whiteners

With work shuttered, some have found a new way to make money: Internet odd jobs

Minutes after Kara Jones wakes up, she’s glued to her desktop computer, filling out surveys or being interviewed about website design. After her toddler goes to sleep at night, she pulls out her phone and sends videos to market research companies.

Hardly a minute of Jones’ free time is not spoken for or meticulously analyzed on an elaborate spreadsheet where she tracks dozens of side-hustle websites.

“I’ll apply for a whole bunch of tasks in a week that I’m really passionate about. Before I realize it, my whole week, every available minute, is taken up by paid studies,” she said. She said she uses the spreadsheet to keep records of which sites offer “the highest ROI,” or return on investment.

Jones, 35, was laid off in May and quickly began spending hours each day scouring websites for ways to scrape together a few dollars at a time by giving her
