    Riders compete in the 120 km Dubai Crown Prince Endurance Cup in the United Arab Emirates in this March 24, 2012 file photo. As the oil-rich Gulf economies boom, the hobbies of its wealthy local populations tend to become big business - and nowhere is that more true than for horses, a traditional passion of the region's Bedouin tribes. Dubai, with its large tourist sector and web of international transport links, has emerged as the focus of the horse business in the region.

    Cars stream underneath a gantry Friday, May 4, 2012, which is planned to use sophisticated electronic equipment to impose toll charges onto the vehicle owners as they pass along the road into Pretoria, South Africa. South African unions and big business joined to oppose tolls to pay for road upgrades for the nation's commercial hub, saying an irrational plan was being imposed on citizens by the African National Congress (ANC). Four days before the the system was scheduled to start, the ANC announced the project would be postponed to allow time to talk to unions and business leaders about the toll system.

    European Union trade commissioner Karel de Gucht talks with a Reuters reporter in Phnom Penh March 30, 2012. Fair elections in Myanmar this weekend will be a major step toward the lifting of European Union sanctions but the bloc will not be rushed by big business into lifting the full range of trade restrictions, Gucht said on Friday. Whether trade curbs are lifted or not will depend heavily on an international report on forced labour in Myanmar, Gucht told Reuters in an interview.

    FILE - In this film publicity FILE image released by Disney, Octavia Spencer, right, and Viola Davis are shown in a scene from "The Help." For the first time in the three years since Oscar organizers expanded the best-picture category to more than five films, there's not a single blockbuster in the running. The only contender this time that has made it to the $100 million mark domestically is the Deep South tale ?The Help? at $169.7 million _ big business for a drama with a heavily female audience.
