What Xi said: Chinas five-year economic plan

"In Beijing today China's leadership will wrap up discussions of the country's next five-year plan. The Fifth Plenum this meeting is known lays out on list economic and social policy. Goals. At the time of the last one in Two Thousand Sixteen President Xi Jinping reiterated the Party's key target for twenty twenty of achieving a moderately prosperous society. Ardent Should show me into Sean consciously. Jewish. Measures of prosperity have certainly been on the up. And while the rest of the world economy will shrink this year China's will grow moderately. The new Five Year Plan, we'll have to accommodate a world battered by covid nineteen and a trading environment battered by the tensions with America. The fine details won't be made public for some time. The meeting is really just a formality for the country's rubber-stamp parliament. Within those five year plans though live big clues this time in particular to how long Mr See intends to stay in power. The five year plans are an inheritance if you will from the Soviet Union Simon Rabinovich is our Asia economics editor and is based in Shanghai. They used to be extremely rigid where the party was set production quotas for things like steel and grain or the last few decades they've become much more like rough guides as to what the party is aiming to do over the next five years you can almost think of them like election manifestos but of course, given that there's no elections in China the same parties in power one manifesto builds on top of the previous one. And so how does that hand look to you? Did they deliver on the on the last one and what's in this one? The single most important element to the five year plans. The thing that everything else revolves around is the growth target. Last time around their target was that they would average roughly six point, five percent growth annually they actually highly unusual for for the party that this year because of covid pandemic and what that has done to the economy I'm so they came up just short of it and so going into the next five year plan, not because of the pandemic but more because of the very hostile external environment that China now believes it finds itself in they're likely. To set a much lower growth targets, some people speculate that they might not even set one at all. Guess the basic estimate is that they might go for something like roughly five percent annual growth. So it's a big step down from the previous plan but the big thing for the party is that they still see this as the plan that will help to propel the economy and the country forward and so given. What's what's been said at at the plenum? How does China plan to deal with both of the ring down from the pandemic and this hostile environment? Apart from the GDP target, the big thing about the plans often is this sort of philosophy that underpins them. This time around the underpinning philosophy is is something that's been coined the dual circulation strategy, which I know sounds like a bit of a mouthful, but it's quite significant. Previously China talked about the great international circulation, the idea of linking the Chinese economy to the global economy and benefiting from that linkage. Now, the dual circulation is adding in this idea of the great domestic circulation, which is really developing the domestic economy developing domestic demand and production, and ensuring that Shaina is going to be strong enough to withstand the variety. Of External pressures problems that is now facing cynically some people would say, well, it's just old wine in new bottles. China has talked a lot about self reliance in the past developing domestic demand but the fact is I mean, the environment is clearly much more hostile from China's perspective. It's more than just promoting domestic consumption. It's about trying to advance a whole range of sectors trying to secure advanced technologies for China and building up a domestic economy that ultimately can stand on its own two feet, and is that a realistic goal is is looking inward in that way going to protect it from the the fears sees outside its borders. Its goal that comes with clear risks in that no economy no matter how large in terms of size is actually able to be self sufficient. That's that's the nature of globalization today of globalization that China has benefited from tremendously as at all condoms are interlinked but it is understandable given the tensions between China and America in the past couple of years given the fact that a growing number of countries seem to be falling more in line with America's view of China than than of China's you've China it's understandable. That China is quite worried about the rest of the world turning against it easy at other planning documents officials talking about the need for self reliance, a pocket term. These days is the idea of Kabul's issue. She stranglehold technology idea. There's specific technologies that if America or others don't export them to China China's development could basically be stopped. So there is therefore a belief that they need to develop things be at semiconductors be machine tools that will allow China to withstand that kind of walk eight were to develop trying to. Not. There it still has quite way to go to achieve that sort of self sufficiency. It'll be costly to try to get there but nevertheless that as a goal as an objective, this is something that they're very much focused on.

How B-787 Captain Shreenand Sadhale got his start in aviation

"So tells you got your start in aviation. Well I grew up in India. And you know in India as you. Envision isn't as accessible as it is Let's say in the US. So there's no there was actually no generally vision avenue I grew up in the eighties. But we used to live. Right on the final four and the one four. And this is the time when jets. Loud. and. Quite a spectacle come into. And even though they were not too many a couple of jets. Rushed to the window to see them. It was always an exciting part of. Growing up. Watching these airplanes I had no family who was involved in aviation, but my dad used to travel a lot. And going. To the airport to receive and. That was quite. It was quite excited and. Attracted me to, but I guess it was. was. Okay. So how old were you when you took your first flying lesson that? Point. Twenty twenty-six, what happened was I always wanted to be a pilot. I. My vision was in twenty grigny anymore. So the was out of the picture. and. The fact that I couldn't fly fighters anymore meant my interest sort of windows into. Automobiles and motorcycles. Which is why I ended up being automobile engineer. But I was interested in working at a desk so I started writing or magazines. And I started off, my first job was actually. As a motoring journalist. And I was having a great time driving getting invited on test drive and bribing all sorts of. was sort of. started to come back a little bit and I guess I was looking up. As to how I could still become a pilot. that point in time Singapore Airlines as luck would have it. This compute bureau luck as Singapore Airlines came up with an ad in the newspaper for their credit. And the deal was that debate for your flying. The Youtube underplay. And you had to work with them for seven years. And when I read it I, it felt like the sort of thing that only happens to somebody else. I don't. So so they are going to pay they're going to pick up the TAB and there's only a seven year commitment. That's a good deal. It has been I mean have done it for. So I. But I didn't really expect that I would get through. So i. sent him application then as like whatever they would call. I give the interviews. And the other funny story about the interview. You had to down what Ellen you wanted to go to India group. So there was a choice between Singapore Airlines passenger line. Silkair, which is the regional airline. And as I got. And I wrote a Kabul has my first choice. And they were quite stunned because in the first interview, they asked me. You show you I go because you have to make off. Because I I will because I make great coffee. and. I really do want to fly the seven four seven. And in the second interview again. Asked me. Don't. I said. I know people were was in buffalo so I have absolutely no. No. No did you say the way to ministry? Did you say this because you thought it would be an easier way to get hired or do you really want to fly boxes instead of people? I just wanted to fly the seven I. I didn't really okay what? What it was filled with. A really really wanted to fly December seven and you add it was being phased out by the time. I would have gone online right? So the only way to get the flight would be to cite S I will. Okay. So they hired you right. Did I mean as? I say it's one of the best mistakes made released. Get in as through the cracks and Between was done in two parts. You had to do the ground school I in single. and. After that, you did the initial part of the ocean licensed in. Australia. Oh. Okay. Now all the the ground school and everything I. Assume there were people from all different countries was all the training conducted in English. Yes. It was and there was a little bit of lying on one fifty two in Singapore. Essentially just to see if you could. You know you had the hand eye coordination and that sort of thing. Aviv. Singapore study was essentially just to clear your eighty peel. So that's how they did was they made sure you could read the Terry. And once you got your DP, which was the frozen beal. Scientists, which was in Australia. Okay and how many hours did you get in Australia? So we the one seven do and the barren, and that was about fifty dollars. But here's the interesting part the for the guy who went on the white bodies. They made them fly. Lear jet for twenty hours. In the Brisbane and a this used to happen when I was in the program opted after that. That is one program that I could really signed up. And more years of my life. To plan because. It. It is quite a yeah and quite fantastic experiences when to fly away forty five meaning.

Interview with Julie Grahame

"Well. Hello everyone, and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine. My name is Scott Olsen, and today I have the real real pleasure of talking with Julie Graham Julie is a photo consultants, a curator, a judge. She is one of the most involved people behind the scenes in photography today and in a real pleasure to get the insight that she has about what our world looks like. Truly Good Morning. How are you? Good Morning I'm fine. Thank you how you doing. I'm doing. Well, it's a pleasant day out here on the prairie. Nice and sunny kind of data just just makes you happy to be here. Tell me about being a photo curator because. So many of us who are not professional photographers not working for a magazine or doing weddings and stuff wind up with you know thousands and thousands of images that we know mean something and might be good as a collection that have no idea what to do with them. Tell me how your work involves making sense out of the huge mass of photographs that we all wind up with. Well the last thing you want to send a photo consultant or editors thousands of images so This is true. Certainly you're GONNA pay a lot more for the privilege. I'm honestly Scott it really the answer is it depends who are you? What are you have? What are your goals? Are they realistic? Where do you WanNa be when WHO's your audience? All of these things are the preamble to even beginning to work with somebody. I think there are two aspects of being a photography consultancy. You can either just hire me to edit your images. Say You WANNA make a book proposal or You want to redesign your website and you're not sure will albums you want to have on there there and how many images should be in there. You don't need to talk to me don't hire me for an entire hour. You can just tell me what you need in some the images and and get get a decent price according me, and then there's the other ocean, which is why you're more involved we together for an hour two hours or however many hours you need. An, rarely drove down into those things that I that I just mentioned what's realistic for you and how you're going to get there, and you know the web is affording US access to lots more eyeballs than ever. So choice be very realistic with my clients as to whether having a book is really a an optional goal for them or whether they should perhaps be publishing their work online and trying to drive a new audience to that. Instead those kinds of things it's kind of like being therapist. Tell me what kind of insight you generally bring to a client. Because if if I do say I wanted to redesign my website, you have good taste, but you also have a business. Of, what works tell me what a typical conversation might involve somebody call because they want a new website or they want to figure out what to do with their work? How does that conversation proceed? Well, I would normally have ten fifteen minute chat with them and again, just kind of understand if you want to redesigned website launching a new website, who's it for? How are they going to find? It so that that branches off into other questions you have a prison Sloan, instagram generate one is your projects. Are they need? Can you find target audience? So we would drill down you know what do you have someone may think they have four different kinds of portfolios and I might look one hundred images and think there's really just one serous here and then we would have to talk about. What else do they have often photographers not the best editors of their work. So would not case over like to see more than less what are they doing until now? which what of that's been working for them and what hasn't depending on what kind of photographer they? They might be a commercial photographer trying to look for an appetizing clients in which case I would want to know can you tell me which brands you love you would think you would like to shoot for and do you really have work that you could approach them with go to find out who the director was for the latest Nike Campaign. So help people kind of do research think more clearly, you can't just spreads your images out across everywhere will come. To it, but it published my own photography magazine on the weapon. The worst thing is if someone sends me, a project is clearly something I would never publish because of never published anything like it before and it clearly not my taste. So being discerning makes you look more professional. So having all those kinds of questions and oftentimes photographers not sure I've had people really resist me on these questions as well but I think it's super important. I don't think anyone can afford to say who my audience is yet if you're not really sure you really need to find. So, again, you're not gonna be sending someone thousands of images, but you're GonNa win be sharing enough so that I can really get a proper sense of you know maybe where I think you should be I might find images that you didn't think gray or thought went into a particular section on your website and I think differently and I would talk about who might be interested in those images. How can you describe them so that they might be found online, which is a huge issue with lots of photographers they don't do the most basic. Fundamentals premeditated the files and keywords their websites and missing opportunities to be found. So I'll be lucky if I can do all that internal fifteen minutes before higher. I try. It is it is amazing and it's not just for photographers, but it is amazing. How much insight? An extra set of eyes and especially as an exercise that has some experience can bring to understanding your own work. I. Do want to say to everyone listening you have a wonderful website. It's Julie Graham Dot COM J. U. L. E. G.. R. A. H. A. M. E. DOT COM, which goes over all sorts of stuff julie. Tell me how you got to be a photo consultant. How did you get from age twelve to now? Okay. Well, I was born in London England sometime last century and I left Scola sixteen and I actually went to train at Konica and I worked for a couple of years in a company bonus print doing one hour. See Forty one negative. Devon prints which at the time and the truly judging every single negative by making prints for a smooth and local community was on a local high street in London. which was fabulous had a great time and I learned a lot of this lay and then eighteen I went back to school and studied photography two years came out. The other end wasn't very good. Actually tool of photography and I was terrible at theory. I knew I didn't want to be a photographer. I wanted to be in photography industry. Somehow I'm back in nosed as well. Any good media student with day would be to get the Guardian newspaper on a Monday and Kim the back for the media jobs and I applied for a job managing a photo agency. I got rejected and then a couple of weeks later they email email Co.. Called me and asked me if I'd be interested in a filing position. So I went for an interview I got hired on the spot I hadn't really been to show what the job was. I spent my first few weeks cutting up to Nicole to transparency is mounting them in Kabul mounts rights in the name of it was a mutant mainly music photography, licensing agency. So we were essentially had hundreds of music photographers bringing in transparencies, and that prints we would make dukes Othello syndicating with around the world and everybody was selling tons of images everyday to magazines and newspapers but publishing it was very, very healthy business.
