David Walliams has written an exclusive children’s picture book especially for Comic Relief, giving all of his proceeds from the book to the charity.THE QUEEN’S ORANG-UTAN will be published on 26th February 2015, ahead of Red Nose Day on 13th March. As David’s global publisher, HarperCollins UK are delighted to support David and Comic Relief and will also donate all profits from the publishing of the book.THE QUEEN’S ORANG-UTAN is a right royal mash-up of mischief and mayhem. A wickedly funny line-up of characters are brought energetically to life with illustrations by Tony Ross. Tony has worked with David on five of his bestselling novels and will waive his royalties from this book for the charity. His two previous picture book collaborations with David, The Slightly Annoying Elephant and The First Hippo on the Moon, both rocketed straight to Number One in the picture book chart in their first week of publication.THE QUEEN’S ORANG-UTAN will be published in paperback at £4.99 with at least £3 from each copy sold going to Comic Relief. A brilliant audio version has also been created by David along with Miranda Hart and Rob Brydon – a starry collaboration which combines to create a highly comic rendition of the tale. On the eve of Red Nose Day – 12th March 2015 – the book will also be published as a special limited edition hardback with the CD of the audio included.David Walliams is an honorary trustee of Comic Relief, a charity for which he has personally raised millions – most notably swimming the English Channel in 2006 and the River Thames in 2011. Since his debut children’s book in 2008 David has taken the literary world by storm and is the biggest British children’s author to debut this century. His most recent novel, Awful Auntie, was published in September 2014 and was the overall bestselling book in the UK for a sensational six weeks. UK sales have already surpassed half a million copies, making it the biggest selling book published in 2014. It is also the winner of both The National Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year and Audiobook of the Year. David’s books have now been translated into forty-two languages and have collectively sold over six million copies in the UK alone.HarperCollins Children’s Books Executive Publisher Ann-Janine Murtagh said, “David Walliams is a genius storyteller – adored by millions of children worldwide. He has written this wonderfully irreverent and hilarious tale especially for Comic Relief – and what a wonderful gift it is! His inimitable storytelling is on top form and will delight young and old. We are privileged to publish David Walliams on the HarperCollins Children’s list and delighted to be working with him and Comic Relief on the publishing of this book.”Comic Relief CEO Kevin Cahill, said, “David has been such a brilliant supporter of Comic Relief for such a long time. He’s clearly taken the easy way out this time by writing a book rather than swimming the Channel! We are eternally in his debt for his wonderful ongoing support.”Money raised from the book will be spent by Comic Relief in the UK, and across Africa, helping vulnerable and disadvantaged people to turn their lives around.

The last day of the Crawfish season will be 15th March, 2017. Last season the fishing community of the Turks and Caicos benefited from an increase in crawfish landings. This appears to be the result of the stock starting to rebuild, and as long as we continue to implement the measures we have in place we are confident that this rebuilding will continue…”
On the eve of its third-quarter earnings report, Time Inc. revealed it’s putting an aggressive focus on the fastest growing U.S. market with the introduction of Time Inc. Latino.The new division looks to leverage the company’s already-deep penetration into the Hispanic/Latino market by serving more English and Spanish language content tailored to that audience. Believe it or not, Time Inc. has a larger Hispanic/Latino audience than Univision and Telemundo combined in digital, with a reach of 18.3 million, according to 2017 comScore Multiplatform/GfK MRI Media + Fusion data. So more emphasis on this audience is intended to further strengthen the market share, which offers a lot of upside as marketing budgets are increasing to reach multicultural demos.Monique MansoFor now, the new division is rolling out with two branded verticals — People Chica and Planeta Futbol. The former will be an English-language extension of the People brand, and the latter is Spanish-language collaboration between Sports Illustrated and 90min, a company that produces soccer coverage from around the world. But more is coming in 2018, according to People en Espanol’s VP and brand sales director, Monique Manso, who is spearheading this project. While she wouldn’t reveal what other new brands or verticals are on the horizon, she did suggest that food and health and wellness are extreme areas of interest for the company. Like many of Time Inc.’s latest product launches, this strategy will look to engage with Millennials through digital- and social-native channels. Manso indicates that’s a critical component in reaching the highly coveted younger demo. “Take a look at what’s happening with the boom in the Hispanic market, which includes Millennials”, she says. “Everyone wants to speak to them, but you can’t unless you’re speaking to a multicultural market in an authentic way. You can’t be a leading media company in this country if your product doesn’t reflect the complexion of the country.”The more aggressive focus on the Hispanic/Latino market goes beyond an audience development strategy, however. Manso says that it’s also critically important for Time Inc.’s advertising partners. “The marketing community is still trying to find its way,” she says. “We’re answering the call. We are best positioned to deliver this audience. It’s a real responsibility and advantage for us.”Manso also tells Folio: that Time Inc. Latino will make use of existing talent resources from People en Espanol for the Chica brand but will also bring in new talent as well.
The guided-missile cruiser USS Antietam (CG 54) is shown in the South China Sea, March 6, 2016.ReutersThe US military said on Wednesday it sent a Navy warship through the Taiwan Strait, which separates Taiwan from China, a move likely to anger China during a period of tense relations between Washington and Beijing.Taiwan is among a growing number of flashpoints in the US-China relationship, which include a trade war, US sanctions and China’s increasingly muscular military posture in the South China Sea, where the United States also conducts freedom-of-navigation patrols.China on Wednesday warned that it is ready for war if there was any move towards Taiwan’s independence, accusing the United States of undermining global stability and denouncing its arms sales to the self-ruled island.The warship sent to the 112-mile-wide (180-km) Taiwan Strait was identified as the Antietam.”The (ship’s) transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the US commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific,” Commander Clay Doss, a spokesman for the US Navy’s Seventh Fleet, said in a statement. “The US Navy will continue to fly, sail and operate anywhere international law allows,” he added.The voyage risks raising further tensions with China but will likely be viewed by self-ruled Taiwan as a sign of support from US President Donald Trump’s administration amid growing friction between Taipei and Beijing.The United States has no formal ties with Taiwan but is bound by law to help provide the island with the means to defend itself and is its main source of arms.China has been ramping up pressure to assert its sovereignty over the island, which it considers a wayward province of “one China” and sacred Chinese territory.On Wednesday, Chinese Defence Ministry spokesman Wu Qian told a news briefing on a defence white paper, the first like it in several years to outline the military’s strategic concerns, that China would make its greatest effort for peaceful reunification with Taiwan.”If there are people who dare to try to split Taiwan from the country, China’s military will be ready to go to war to firmly safeguard national sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity,” he said.China has repeatedly sent military aircraft and ships to circle Taiwan on exercises in the past few years and worked to isolate it internationally, whittling down its few remaining diplomatic allies.
