Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is sharing a push by the Group of Seven advanced industrial nations to promote inclusive growth across the globe in meetings with leaders of seven developing countries.
Japan has pledged to increase its development assistance, help finance an insurance fund for health emergencies in the developing world and to offer training to thousands of people in the developing world as part of its own contribution to bridging economic disparities.
Fans can be deeply forgiving, willing to look past their favorite star's terrible drug addiction, ugly custody battle or ignorant remarks.
Globally beloved Johnny Depp will continue to be popular and make millions as a movie star, despite his wife's allegations that he was physically abusive throughout their relationship.
Los Angeles Police responded to a domestic violence call at the couple's home on May 21, but the person who made the call declined to file charges and officers determined no crime occurred.
In the court of public opinion, alcoholism and drug addiction are much easier to forgive than domestic violence, Levine said, anticipating Depp will soon make an image-saving trip to rehab.
Ray Harroun never could have envisioned the speed, science and styling behind the cars on the starting grid for the 100th Indy 500, not when he was piloting the Marmon Wasp to victory in the inaugural race back in 1911.
In my estimation the limit is reached at 500 miles," Harroun predicted upon exiting the car, "and is entirely too long for the endurance of the driver.
To learn and to develop new technologies to push the performance envelope, said Jim Campbell, vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports for Chevrolet.
The high-pitched hum of ethanol-powered engines could be replaced by the nearly silent thrum of electric cars, an idea that might have seemed preposterous a decade ago.
Asking drivers and executives in Gasoline Alley to picture the future of the Indy 500 is like asking Helio Castroneves to play Aldous Huxley or Simon Pagenaud to channel his inner George Orwell.
Drivers and crews would arrive each May with bold designs and creative engineering, pushing the envelope in new and imaginative ways.
Chassis, where the wheels, tires and suspension are a single unit made out of as-yet undeveloped materials?
Three-time winner Bobby Unser lamented the direction the Indy 500 has gone in recent years.
Spec chassis provided by Dallara and engines delivered by Chevrolet and Honda have robbed it of its creativity.
"If they don't change something they're going to kill it — if they don't change the thing and get back to some real racing and innovation, it's going to kill the race," Unser said with a sigh.
LeBron, Cavs confident, healthy as they return to NBA Finals
James scored 33 points, Kevin Love had 20 points and 12 rebounds, and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Toronto Raptors 113-87 in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals Friday night, winning the series 4-2.
Last year, a depleted Cavs team lost in six games to the Warriors, left to wonder whether things would have worked out differently if Love (left shoulder) and Irving (left knee) had been at full strength.
Irving, who had battled knee injuries during his first postseason before breaking his kneecap late in Game 1 of last year's finals, said he's thankful for the opportunity to be a contributor this time around.
Thinking about the steps it took to get back to where we are now, I really have a true appreciation for these guys, my teammates and just a true appreciation of the journey.
James will be the eighth player in NBA history to appear in six consecutive finals and the first who didn't play for the Boston Celtics.
A shot at the NBA title is just what Cavs owner Dan Gilbert had in mind when he signed Love to a $113 million contract last summer and gave Tristan Thompson $82 million.
