أجندة العالم - آب ٢٠١٧ infographic

World events scheduled for August 2017

Graphic News

August 1-31, 2017 -- Events this month include the start of negotiations on a new North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and presidential elections in Rwanda and Kenya. India and Pakistan gained independence 70 years ago, and Diana, Princess of Wales, died 20 years ago. Airbus Perlan II will attempt to set a new glider altitude record, boxer Floyd Mayweather and mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor face off in a historic bout, and a solar eclipse will sweep across the continental U.S. from coast to coast.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
