Project aims to tackle dehydration among the elderly and vulnerable

A court has estimated that it costs pounds 110,000 to raise a child. Is is worth it.

Comment: First Tee - Appearance money: the worms turn

ONE OF the many features that sets the Ryder Cup apart from the humdrum of stroke-play events on the European Tour is the fact that the players don't, per se, get paid. They may travel on Concorde and they may receive more eye-catching outfits than Naomi Campbell but they do not play for cash. Last year Mark O'Meara suggested it was time this quaint notion of putting altruism before mammon was reversed.

The secret of my success: Carole White

Carole White set up Premier Model Management in her brother's sitting room in 1981 with his financial backing. Today Premier manages around 200 models including Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Cindy Crawford.

You ask the questions: David Bailey

(Such as: David Bailey, did Ronnie Kray pay you to take his wedding photographs - or did you do it as a favour?)

Bye-bye Cindy, Linda, Christy and now Naomi... They say the supermodel era is over. What can they mean?

Why are they famous: Rachel Hunter

Fashion Cafe fails to survive on a low-capital diet and goes bust

FASHION CAFE, the glitzy theme restaurant in London's Piccadilly Circus fronted by a group of supermodels which opened in a blaze of publicity last November, was placed in the hands of an administrator yesterday.

Debate: Can you be fat and happy, or are the 'big is beautiful' lobby fooling themselves?

Having crash-dieted herself 20lbs lighter, Oprah Winfrey has just made the cover of American 'Vogue'. Winfrey's constant battle to be slim is proof, argues Kia Hansen, that fat people can rarely find happiness as they are. Untrue, says Lisa Colles, who claims 'size 10s' don't have the monopoly on feeling good about themselves

Real people: Why are they famous? Valerie Campbell

Main Claim: Naomi. In an unusual - some might say novel - turn of events in the annals of unwarranted fame, Valerie Campbell is famous for the fruit of her loins rather than for her flashy progenitors (see the Ivanka Trump school of celebrity) or her notorious partner (please study the Emma Noble method). Valerie Campbell, model, is fairly famous- ish in a back-pages-of-Hello! sort of way for being the mother of a thoroughgoing international superstar, namely the one and only Naomi Campbell, supermodel. This, however, is a notion that irritates our heroine no end. "It's more of a hindrance than a help. I've never wanted to live off Naomi's name," asserts the mother-of-Naomi in this week's Daily Mail. Just like certain Trumps, Carlings, Jaggers and Lennons, then.

Close-up on dirty old men

September was also the month for photographers. First there was David Bailey with his Channel 4 programme Models Close-up, then came Mario Testino's coffee-table tome, Any Objections?, and finally, smouldering snapper Sante D'Orazio brought out his own retrospective, A Private View. All three confirmed the fact that photographers are horny little devils.

BEEN THERE, DONE HER

David Bailey has seen it all: as the King of Swinging London, Mr Love Pants himself, he knew everyone, snapped everyone, slept with - well, nearly everyone. So how does he pass the time now?
