Why does Germany make so little room for working moms?

It was about six years ago, after the birth of her second child, that Felicitas Sochor quietly began to worry about being called a Rabenmutter.

Ms. Sochor had long dreamed of starting a cafe. But even if she could balance the work commitment that would require with the needs of her two young children, that split time could be seen as the taboo of leaving her children to “fly off to work” as a Rabenmutter, or raven mother.

She settled for an administrative job at a youth center in order to care for her children in the afternoon, with her husband as “the real breadwinner.” But when the pandemic upended her life and shut down the schools, and her husband, working from home, felt it was natural she should take over the child care, she rebelled. “Why do I have to be responsible for everything?” she says. “I

2014 Ford Mustang Roush Is Called The Hulk

⚡️ Read the full article on Motorious

It’s green and powerful, so why not?

Naming your car is a natural thing to do. Back in the days before cars people named their horses (we hear that’s still a thing in equestrian circles) so it’s fitting to do the same thing with your faster pony car like this 2014 Ford Mustang Roush. Since this machine is green and has been tuned by Roush for more power, it’s only fitting that it’s nicknamed the Hulk. There’s even a portrait of the big green guy on the underside of the hood and the name is embroidered on the seatbacks. Even better, you could harness the brutal power of the Hulk since the car is available through Carlisle Auctions as part of its Fall Auction.

Speaking of power, this Roush Mustang is pushing a stage three supercharged setup with 685-horsepower on tap. That’s way

Sotheby’s to Auction Rare Artist-Designed Nike Sneakers

This week, Sotheby’s put up eight rare works for sale as part of an online auction. While estimated price points ranging up to the high five figures for objects designed by notable artists may not stand out amid the famous auction house’s offerings, the particular medium might: Nike sneakers.

Titled “Cult Canvas,” it’s the first Sotheby’s auction dedicated solely to Nike’s rise in sneaker culture through eight rare and historical pairs of Nike Dunks. Pulling together sneakers designed by everyone from famous New York street artist Futura to toy designers like Michael Lau and notable French expressionist painter Bernard Buffet, this selection of ultrarare footwear artifacts curated by Applied Arts founder Ryan Chang celebrates sneakers with one foot in the worlds of both street fashion and fine art.

And a great one will also be of tremendous help to you right now. A quality rolling pin makes baking easier because it allows you to produce evenly and properly measured dough for pies and cookies. (There’s really nothing worse than taking what was intended to be a delicious, golden-brown baked good out of the oven and seeing it burned in parts and undercooked in others.)

To help, we scoured the internet for all the best rolling pins, and we rounded up a list of the most highly-rated options according to hundreds and thousands of shopper reviews.

NEW Totino’s Toastables Are a Hot Take on an Old Favorite

Growing up, my siblings and I spent a lot of time in front of the TV playing our Super Nintendo. Saturday mornings, after school and basically every holiday at 6 AM, we were in the living room, controllers in hand. And what were we eating to keep a healthy diet, you ask? A plate of pizza rolls, of course!

Now, Totino’s Toastables are taking my favorite childhood snack and giving it a new look. Am I going to complain? Of course not!

What Exactly Is a Toastable?

We all know Totino’s Pizza Rolls as little pockets of portable pizza joy that are incredibly easy to make and totally addictive. While they’re amazing as party appetizers (for socially distant parties, of course), they are also very often eaten as full meals. Of this, I am absolutely guilty. I have no regrets!

As the box states, a Pepperoni Toastable is “pepperoni

From Adam Sandler’s new movie to more ‘Schitt’s Creek’

There may be plenty of aspects of Halloween that are canceled this year, but horror is not one of them.

At least that appears to be the case based on Netflix’s list of new October shows and movies, which includes the “Haunting of Hill House” successor “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” Lily James and Armie Hammer’s gothic tale “Rebecca” and Norwegian psychological horror film “Cadaver.”

But there’s plenty of room for new comedy, too: Adam Sandler’s “Hubie Halloween,” Sarah Cooper’s special “Everything’s Fine” and fresh episodes of the Emmy-sweeping “Schitt’s Creek” are being added to the streaming service.

See below for all of the titles arriving and leaving Netflix next month (and go here to find out what was added in September).

Netflix’s list of October titles include Season 6 of “Schitt’s Creek,” “Hubie Halloween,” “Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine,” “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and “BLACKPINK: Light Up the

Theaters nobly fill the COVID void, but screens make me miss the stage even more

Zoom theater is an oxymoron, but substitutes for live performance will have to do until we can safely gather again as an audience.

The Old Vic’s In Camera program demonstrates what can be done with an actor on stage alone or physically distanced from a scene partner. The offerings, scratch productions with topnotch performers, recall Peter Brook’s idea of theater as “the empty space,” the stage equivalent of a blank page, requiring nothing more than the imaginative interplay between artists and (implied) spectators.

But what about more adventurous digital performances? My encounters thus far don’t persuade me that the future of theater lies in sophisticated tech.

When I tune into a play or a devised theater piece, I’m not looking to be dazzled by computer graphics. Clever Zoom
