New social care plans risk backlash over failure to tackle England’s winter ‘crisis’

Exclusive: long-awaited white paper provides no new funding to help with care providers’ immediate problems

Ministers are risking a fresh backlash over social care by unveiling long awaited proposals that will offer no new funding to help crisis-hit care providers through winter, the Guardian understands.

The care minister, Gillian Keegan, is expected to unveil the white paper to parliament on Wednesday in what has been billed as a key part of delivering on Boris Johnson’s 2019 promise to “fix the crisis in social care once and for all”.

‘It’s a glorified backpack of tubes and turbines’: Dave Eggers on jetpacks and the enigma of solo flight
When inventor ​David Mayman took to the skies, it seemed he’d answered an age-old longing. So why did no one seem to care?We have jetpacks and we do not care. An Australian named David Mayman has invented a functioning jetpack and has flown it all over the world – once in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty – yet few people know his name. His jetpacks can be bought but no one is clamouring for one. For decades, humans have said they want jetpacks, and for thousands of years we have said we want to fly, but do we really? Look up. The sky is empty.Airlines are dealing with pilot shortages, and this promises to get far worse. A recent study found that, by 2025, we can expect a worldwide shortfall of 34,000 commercial pilots. With smaller aircraft, the trends are similar. Hang-gliding has all but disappeared. Ultralight aircraft makers are barely staying afloat. (One manufacturer, Air Création, sold only one vehicle in the US last year.) With every successive year, we have more passengers and fewer pilots. Meanwhile, one of the most dreamed of forms of flight – jetpacks – exists, but Mayman can’t get anyone’s attention. Continue reading...

‘She’s an inspiration to every mum’: the postnatal depression survivor offering new mothers a lifeline
A local support network helped Jo Leach overcome PND – now she’s a key part of it, and thoroughly deserving of a little pamperingJo Leach didn’t tell anyone about her postnatal depression. It came on after her second child, Hayden, was born on Christmas Day 2011. With two children under two, she sometimes wouldn’t leave the house for days at a time. “I didn’t know what was happening to me,” says Leach, 41, who lives in Stroud, Gloucestershire. “There was this overwhelming feeling of being really anxious and panicky.”She didn’t tell anyone – not even her partner or her mum. “I was embarrassed,” says Leach. “I felt alone.” Postnatal depression (PND) is common, and affects more than one in 10 women within a year of giving birth, but Leach did not know that at the time. Going to the supermarket or the park was hard work. She avoided crowds. “I was just surviving,” she says. “Getting through each day and keeping the children alive, and making sure they were fed and happy. I struggled to look after myself. I wouldn’t eat properly. It was all about them.” She lost a lot of weight. Continue reading...

Meera Sodha’s recipe for vegan lemon tart | The new vegan
A sprightly take on the classic citrus dessert, using the talents of silken tofu in place of egg yolks to create a lighter tartMy theory is that everyone has a default pudding. My dad will always choose cheesecake, my daughter ice-cream, my husband loves a cheese plate and my best friend the chocolatiest thing on the menu. My weakness has always been lemon tart. Due to this lifelong love, I was sceptical that I’d be able to come up with a vegan take that would satisfy my own appetite, but here we are. In this recipe, silken tofu forms a rich base to overlay sharp winter lemons. It’s different from the traditional tart in that it’s fresher and brighter, so this is in no way a substitute, but another wonderful lemon tart in its own right.UK readers: click to buy these ingredients from Ocado Continue reading...
