Southern Pacific coastal regions are at the greatest risk of earthquakes strong enough to topple buildings over the next 30 years, although almost every area of Japan is in danger, a report showed.
The grim but familiar warning was seen in the National Seismic Hazard Maps for 2017 released by the Headquarters for Earthquake Research Promotion on April 27.
French Ligue 1 leaders Monaco showed their support for relief efforts in quake-hit Kumamoto, southwestern Japan, on Saturday, when they held their home game with Toulouse as a charity match for the region.
Video clips showing recovery efforts in the prefecture were displayed before the game and during the half-time at Stade Louis II. Kumamoto was hit by two huge quakes in April last year that directly killed 50 people.
NAGAKUTE, Aichi Prefecture--The legendary 2000GT sports car that 007 whizzed around in during "You Only Live Twice" is heading the pack at an exhibition marking the 50th anniversary of the classy Toyota Motor Corp. model.
Three other 2000GT cars will also be exhibited in the annex of the Toyota Automobile Museum here from April 25.
Ricoh will be showcasing a prototype Theta 360 camera that can capture 4K clips and live-stream video at the annual NAB show next week. In addition to its video capture and streaming capabilities, the Theta concept will also have four microphones, allowing it to capture 'spatial surround-sound audio.'
In an interview at Photokina last year Ricoh told our Richard Butler that putting such features into the current form factor would be difficult due to processing power and heat management, so it will be interesting to see how they pulled it off.
After extensive searching, here is the only known photo gallery of the updated 2018 Lexus NX F SPORT at the Shanghai Motor Show — big shout out to Car Watch Japan:
(It's hard to tell from the CGI images and these postage stamp photos, but my early impressions of the new NX are very strong — the design didn't really need too much tweaking, and Lexus managed to modernize without going overboard.)
A major international motor show began in Shanghai on Wednesday with leading automakers showcasing new sport utility vehicles and environmentally friendly models.
Of the total 1,400 vehicles on display at Auto Shanghai 2017, 113 cars were unveiled for the first time, while 159 models, including electric vehicles, featured energy-saving technology, according to the organizer.
Honda may have the new Clarity PHEV and EV on display in New York, but the Civic Type R is the brand's show-stealer.
Touching US soil for the first time in an official environment after it debuted in its final form at Geneva last month, the hot hatch is coming to our market and has more established Ford Focus RS in its sight.
Though the Toyota group's racing division in Germany has toyed with the idea, Lexus has never actually produced a full-on LS F. Much as Audi hasn't done an RS8, BMW an M7, or Jaguar an XJR-S – to take on the Mercedes-AMG S63 (much less the twelve-cylinder S65).
The vehicle you see here, however, can at least look the part. Captured on the floor of the Javitz Center where the 2017 New York Auto Show is currently under way is the new Lexus LS F Sport.
