Coronavirus live news: UK aviation industry warns of impact of travel corridor curbs; India begins world's largest vaccination drive
Date: Sat, 16 Jan 2021 08:51:10 GMT
From https:

A leading British epidemiologist has warned against the lifting of coronavirus restrictions in the UK at the end of February, warning it would be a adisastera that would put aenormous pressurea on the NHS.

Prof John Edmunds, who works on the Governmentas coronavirus response as part of the scientific advisory group for emergencies (Sage), told BBC Radio 4as Today programme:

I think it would be a disaster if we removed restrictions in, say, the end of February when we have gone through this first wave of the vaccination.

First of all vaccines arenat ever 100% protective, and so even those that have been vaccinated would be still at some risk.

The UK airport industry has warned of devastating consequences from the countryas drastic tightening of border controls.

Responding to the announcement that all travel corridors will be suspended, Karen Dee, Airport Operators Association chief executive, said:

The closure of travel corridors is understandable from a public health perspective but this adds to the current near-complete shutdown of the UKas airports, which are vital for our post-pandemic prosperity. This is making a devastating situation for UK airports and communities relying on the jobs and economic benefits that aviation brings, worse.

The UK and devolved governments now need to set out as a matter of extreme urgency how they will support airports through this deepening crisis. Business rate support, announced last year and in England not yet even open to applications, is no longer sufficient to ensure airports can weather the difficult months ahead.

It is a kilometre from my front door in Brighton to the local park, all downhill.

The pain was familiar at first. Tediously so. I would often get a tight, burning sensation across my chest when running. It slowed me down but never stopped me in my tracks. I would get home panting too hard for words, my face flashing red and white. aAre you all right?a my wife would ask. aYeah... justa| gimmea| aa| second.a I thought that was normal in a man my age.

The cook and campaigner barely slept last week as the row raged over inadequate food parcels for kids. She discusses austerity, cronyism and why sheall never stop fighting

I speak to Jack Monroe, cook, author and campaigner, towards the end of a tumultuous week in food poverty. On Monday, a Twitter user, @roadsidemum, posted a photo of a ahampera she said was intended to replace her childas free school lunches for two weeks. The provider, Chartwells, claimed it covered one week and was funded at APS10.50. The contents wouldnat have cost you APS6 in any supermarket. Parents all over the country shared similar photos, food nothing short of contemptuous: half a red pepper, a quarter of an onion. What kind of company would employ someone to make sure no family gets too much onion? Monroe has been sent similar photos since March a the packages sent to shielding people, outsourced by the government to other companies, were similarly unimpressive, though athey got a couple of tins of pork as well. Every time I tried to make a noise about it, it was just like shouting in the wind.a

This time, the mood had changed; there was just so much about it that was repulsive a the idea that Chartwells, part of the giant catering corporation Compass, would skim profit off food meant for a child; the cronyism of how it got the contract in the first place (former Chartwells chairman Paul Walsh is a prominent Tory supporter who donated APS10,000 to the party in 2010); the lobbying that led to the policy of hampers rather than vouchers, against the advice of child-poverty groups; the fact that such an incompetent government has the gall not to trust parents with money to feed their own children.

Feeling sluggish? It may be because youare always full

In my youth, fasting was considered a fantastically bad for you fad. The cod-scientific wisdom was that all youad do was lower your metabolism, so when you did start eating again, your weight would go roaring back up.

Since the success of the 5:2 diet, in which you eat normally for five days, then restrict calories to 500-800 daily for two days, the thinking on weight loss has shifted. Fasting intermittently is incredibly effective when it comes to losing weight, and in fact giving your digestive system a break may do wonders for your health.

A renegade Florence Nightingale cares for the ill in a remarkable tale of compassion and combating prejudice

In the spring of 1986, Ruth Coker Burks was in the medical centre in Little Rock, Arkansas, visiting a friend with cancer, when she noticed three nurses drawing straws to see which one would have to enter a patientas room. Curious, she snuck down the corridor to take a look. The door was hung with a scarlet tarp and a biohazard sign. Food trays were piled on the floor outside, along with a cart of isolation suits and masks. Inside, she found an emaciated young man calling for his mother.

When Coker Burks challenged the nurses, one of them told her she was crazy to go in. aHeas got that gay disease,a she said. aThey all die.a They refused to contact the patientas mother, and so Coker Burks made the call from a payphone herself. aMy son is already dead,a the woman told her. aMy son died when he went gay.a Appalled, she went back to the room and sat with the young man, holding his hand until he died a few hours later. But when she told the nurses he was dead, they insisted that she was now responsible for the body. It took hours of phone calls before she found a funeral home willing to perform the cremation. As for the ashes, she buried them herself in a cookie jar at Files Cemetery in Hot Springs, where her family owned some land.

Patricia Highsmith at 100: the best film adaptations

Shape-shifting Tom Ripley, ill-met strangers on a traina| cinemaas love affair with Highsmithas thrillers was immediate, and shows no signs of cooling off

Graham Greene famously declared Patricia Highsmith athe poet of apprehensiona in the foreword to her 1970 short story collection Eleven. Thereas no better way to describe the American writer, whose psychological thrillers meld gliding literary cool with a jangling morass of nerves a a combination, in turn, that film-makers have been trying to translate since the middle of the last century. This coming Tuesday marks the centenary of Highsmithas birth, and her allure to screenwriters remains undimmed in 2021. A glossy new Ben Affleck-starring film of her novel Deep Water, the first film from Adrian Lyne in 19 years, is scheduled for August, while a TV version of Ripley, starring Andrew Scott as her most adaptable character, is in the pipeline.

Theyall join a large and variable roster of Highsmith screen adaptations, ranging from cast-iron classics to mouldering B-movies. Itas no easy subgenre to enter, the bar having been set impossibly high right off the bat a by Alfred Hitchcock, no less, whose perfectly sinuous film of Highsmithas debut novel, Strangers on a Train (on Amazon Prime), released just a year after the bookas 1950 publication, surely played some part in cementing her own elegantly nasty reputation.

From https:

Donat bin that pulp left over from making amilka and juice a itas super-nutritious, and can be used up in baking or in a thrifty granola

I love making my own amilka drinks out of oat, hemp, rice and nuts. Yes, a little patience is required, but only while waiting for the ingredients to soak, but the making itself takes but a few minutes, because it involves only blending and straining the pulp. Hemp milk is my favourite, because it has a unique, nutty flavour and is reassuringly nutritious, as well as being rich in omega-3 and -6 fatty acids. That said, after straining the liquid, youare left with a gunky, fibrous pulp that usually ends up in the bin, and Iave long wanted to come with a way to use it up.

Oats, cashews and coconuts produce very little pulp, and this can be easily stored in the fridge for stirring into pancakes, porridge or smoothies. The pulp from other nuts and seeds, such as hemp and almonds, meanwhile, can be dried to make flour, or used in combination with ground almonds in cookies, pastry and cakes. To make flour, squeeze all the liquid out of the pulp, spread it out in a thin layer on a baking tray,then leave somewhere warm, stirring occasionally, to dry out completely (or put it in a just-turned-off oven, to save energy).
