WORLD CUP: Brazil Stadium problems mount

March 27, 2013 -- The closure of the Joao Havelange stadium in Rio de Janeiro – athletics venue for the 2016 Olympics and the city’s main soccer stadium while the Maracana is rebuilt for the 2014 World Cup – has highlighted difficulties facing Brazil as it prepares to host the world’s two biggest sporting events.


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 @ graphicnews.com
