Acontecimentos mundiais previstos para 2019 interactivo

Graphic News

January 1-31, 2019 -- A Agenda Mundial apresenta uma antevisão dos acontecimentos mundiais previstos em janeiro, incluindo a tomada de posse de Jair Bolsonaro como presidente do Brasil e a abertura do novo Congresso dos EUA.

1. Jan 3, U.S.: Nancy Pelosi, the first woman Speaker of the House of Representatives, from 2007-11, is attempting to secure the job for a non-consecutive term when the new U.S. Congress convenes – to lead the challenge to President Trump’s political and legislative

2. Jan 7, UK: Parliament returns from its Christmas break, and Prime Minister Theresa May has promised a vote on the Brexit deal the following week. Her options appear meagre if, as expected, it fails to pass

3. Jan 1, Brazil: Jair Bolsonaro is sworn in as president for a four-year term that will take the country to the right after a long spell on the left. A lack of foreign leaders at the ceremony in Brasilia can be pinned on the inconvenient date – New Year – and a distaste for his views

4. Jan 14-27, Australia: The Australian Open sees Serena Williams aiming for a record eighth trophy in Melbourne and a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title overall

5. Jan 22-27, Panama: Pope Francis has invited young people from around the globe to attend World Youth Day, but he can’t count on the usual rapturous crowds. The paedophile priests scandal appears to be taking a toll on both his popularity and on the Catholic Church

6. 6: Jan 22-25, Switzerland: The World Economic Forum will draw the rich and powerful to Davos to discuss the most pressing issues on the global agenda

7. Jan 1, Space: NASA’s New Horizons probe reaches the closest point in its nine-day flyby of the icy Kuiper Belt object MU69 and its moonlet. At 6.5bn km from Earth, it is the farthest exploration in the history of humankind

8. Jan 6, U.S.: The Golden Globes nominees show Hollywood taking a stab at inclusion. Crazy Rich Asians, Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman and Bohemian Rhapsody are all in the running for Best Picture-Drama, winning points for diversity. But they must beat A Star is Born, which is favourite for the award (Story: Julie Mullins)

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 @
