Graphic News

November 1-30, 2017 -- Graphic shows news events in November 2017. U.S. President Donald Trump tours Asia, Pope Francis visits Bangladesh and Myanmar, and the U.S. Senate quizzes social media executives about allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election. Chile holds presidential elections, Russia marks the centenary of the Russian Revolution, and the U.S. Navy fits Xbox 360 controllers to Virginia-class submarines. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary, and the Louvre Abu Dhabi opens.

Nov 3-14, Asia: U.S. President Donald Trump visits five nations to build support for tougher sanctions against North Korea and talk about economics and trade. The longest overseas sojourn of Trump’s presidency, the visit takes in Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines

Nov 26-Dec 2, Bangladesh & Myanmar:
Pope Francis will use his visit to advocate for climate protection and for Rohingya Muslims. Both countries suffer cyclones and floods that are likely to worsen with climate change, while over half a million Rohingya have fled to camps in Bangladesh to escape an army crackdown in Myanmar

Nov, U.S.: The Senate Intelligence Committee has invited Facebook, Twitter and Google executives to testify at a public hearing about allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election. The Kremlin denies any interference, and President Trump insists that his staff had no improper links to Russia

Nov 7, Russia: The centenary of the Russian Revolution presents a dilemma for President Vladimir Putin, who is famously nostalgic for the glory days of the Russian Empire and Soviet Union but would rather not remind his people of the power of dissent

Nov, U.S.: The U.S. Navy plans to equip its Virginia-class submarines with Xbox 360 controllers to control the ship’s periscopes, in place of a $38,000 joystick that crews find clunky

Nov 19, Chile: Former president Sebastian Pinera of the conservative Alianza bloc is the frontrunner in the presidential election in Latin America’s most prosperous country, but loses some of his advantage if the contest goes into a second round

Nov 11, UAE: The Louvre Abu Dhabi opens. It burnishes the emirate’s cosmopolitan credentials but irks citizens who view the gallery, the first-ever foreign annexe of the world-famous museum in Paris, as a culturally-alien French import

Nov 20, UK: Queen Elizabeth II – the first British monarch to mark 65 years on the throne – and Prince Philip – who announced his retirement from royal duties this year – celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary (Story: Julie Mullins)


21 days to go until 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 days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
