|.Brian Beedham, foreign editor of The Economist for a quarter of a century, died this week, aged 87 F or nearly all the 25 years leading up to the collapse of communism in 1989, two intellects dominated the pages of The Econ- omist. They were Norman Macrae, as dep- uty editor, and Brian Beedham, as foreign editor. Their marks were influential, endur- ing-and quite different. Norman, who died in 2010, relished iconoclasm, and orig- inal ideas sprang like a fountain from his ef- fervescent mind. Brian, bearded, tweed- jacketed and pipe-smoking (or pipe-pok- ing), held ideas that were more considered. It was he who provided the paper’s atti- tude to the post-war world. In that world, nothing was as important as seeing off communism, which in turn could be achieved only by the unyielding exercise of American strength. This view was not in itself unusual. What made it re- markable, and formidable, were the clarity, elegance and intellectual power with which it was propounded. No issue demanded the exercise of these qualities more than the Vietnam war, and probably none caused Brian more an- guish. A man of great kindness, and with- out a hint of vanity or pretension, he was far from being either a heartless ideologue or a primitive anti-communist (though he never visited either Russia or Vietnam to put his opinions to the test). But his unwa- vering defence of American policy drew criticism from both colleagues and readers. Why did he persist in pounding such a lonely trail, even after it had become clear that the American venture in South-East Asia was doomed? The short answer was conviction. His anti-communism was born of a love affair with America. As a young man, at Leeds Grammar School and Oxford, his politics had been leftish. They might have stayed that way. But in 1955 ambition bore him from the Yorkshire Post to The Economist where, after a few months, he won a Commonwealth Fund fellowship and with it a year study- ing local politics in the South and the West of the United States. In America Brian dis- covered a national ideology based on indi- vidualism, bottom-up democracy and an active belief in liberty that meant pro- blems could be solved at home and na- tions could be freed abroad. This was ex- actly in tune with his own emerging ideas. The dispassionate romantic Coming from drab, class-ridden, 1950s Brit- ain, Brian might have stayed. But he felt in- dubitably British. The Suez crisis was be- ginning just as he left for America in August 1956; he so strongly backed the in- vasion of Egypt that he volunteered his ser- vice to the British military attache in Wash- ington, ready even to give up his new American adventure to fight for this hopeless cause. And though he later became enthusiastic about direct democracy (an en- thusiasm, like that for homeopathic pills, which was fostered by his links with Swit- zerland through Barbara, his wife), he was a monarchist to the end. Suspicious of intellectuals, Brian rel- ished exposing the soft, less-than-rigorous- ly-thought-out (he was fond of hyphens) orthodoxies of the liberal left. As foreign editor, he liked to draw unsparing compar- isons between the Soviet Union and the Nationalist regime in South Africa: to deny freedom on the basis of ideological convic- tions, he argued, was no less objectionable than denying it on the basis of colour. It was no doubt Brian’s command of words that helped to make him our Washington correspondent in 1958 and then, in 1963, foreign editor. In this role he wrote leaders on all manner of topics, often argu- ing a difficult case: for nuclear weapons, say; for supporting Israel (another of his unshakable causes) when sentiment was running otherwise; or indeed for the do- mino theory itself, which was never so ringingly defended. Brian was equally skilled as a sub-edi- tor. Articles that arrived on his desk with no clear beginning, end or theme were turned, apparently effortlessly, into some- thing perfectly sharp and coherent. More annoyingly for authors, articles that were perfectly coherent were sometimes turned with a few tweaks, deft as a paw-dab from one of his beloved cats, into pieces that said something quite different from what had been intended. A statement of fact might be qualified by “it is said” or the American invasion of Cambodia would become a “counter-attack”. These intrusions could be difficult to square with The Economist's tradition of open-mindedness; especially as Brian’s own mind was more contradictory than it seemed. His favourite conversation-part- ners were men like Henry “Scoop” Jackson and Richard Perle, hawkish intervention- ists; but he also had an acquaintance, al- most friendship, with at least one kgb man at the Soviet embassy in the 1980s. Away from work, the world he was analysing weekly was kept at bay. He did not own a television set, and found the best use of computers was to listen to American civil-war songs. Some of his pieces were pounded out on an ancient Ol- ivetti in a turret of Barbara’s family castle in the Alps, surrounded by peaks and clouds. Deep down he was a romantic, capable of great human feeling, whose head con- stantly seemed to remind him to keep a rein on his heart. He wrote sympathetical- ly and perceptively about Islam, and mov- ingly about refugees-especially boat peo- ple, and especially if they were Vietnam- ese. They were making his point for him....The Economist May l6th 2015||.................................................................................................................................................................america's media crisis started with its biggest brands...Help teachers and children generatethe most exciting jobs creation game?

Xi Jinping Holds Talks with President Michel Temer of Brazil
The two sides should give play to such mechanisms as the Brazil-China High-level Coordination and Cooperation Committee, promote exchanges and cooperation in various fields in a coordinated manner, actively probe into the docking of the "Belt and Road" initiative with the Investment Partnerships Program and the Advance Plan of Brazil, and promote regional connectivity and interconnected development. Both sides should put forward unimpeded trade, promote the sustained and stable growth of bilateral trade, deepen innovation cooperation in such fields as infrastructure construction, manufacturing, agriculture, mining industry, energy, production capacity, and science and technology, and expand exchanges and cooperation in culture, media, tourism, sports, and other fields. Both sides should also further intensify cooperation within such multilateral frameworks as the UN, the G20, the BASIC countries and the World Trade Organization (WTO), and conduct coordination and collaboration on major international issues such as global economic governance and sustainable development.
Xi Jinping pointed out that over the past decade, the BRICS countries have opened up a new path featuring equality, mutual benefit, and win-win cooperation, and achieved a batch of tangible results. China is willing to work with Brazil to promote the "three-wheel drive" of economic cooperation, political security and people-to-people and cultural exchanges among the BRICS countries, thus initiating the second "golden decade" of BRICS cooperation.
Xi Jinping stressed that China firmly supports the Latin America to unite for self-development and revitalization, and is committed to constructing a community of common destiny for China and Latin America of joint development. Taking an active and open attitude towards cooperation with the South American Common Market, China is willing to improve the level of cooperation between China and the South American Common Market.
Michel Temer expressed that Brazil and China enjoy close friendship. Brazil attaches great importance to developing bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership as Brazil is a reliable partner of China. Brazil is willing to, while pursuing development in its national reform, strengthen mutually beneficial cooperation with China in such sectors as trade, investment, finance, and agriculture in an all-round manner, and expand exchanges with China in people-to-people and cultural engagement, tourism and sports, so as to enhance the understanding and friendship between the two peoples. Both Brazil and China share similar stances under such multilateral frameworks as the UN, the G20 and the WTO, and keep close communication and coordination in global issues such as climate change and development. Brazil will provide China with full support in holding the BRICS Xiamen Summit successfully, and stands ready to work with China to enhance solidarity and cooperation among the BRICS countries and other developing countries.
After the talks, the two heads of state jointly witnessed the signing of more than 10 bilateral cooperation documents in production capacity, e-commerce, quality inspection, electricity, tourism, health, financing, culture, sports, and other fields. other document 9/17
