Posted in: Japan has its best Olympic medal haul: 27 gold, 58 overall See in context

I was wondering what happened to Korea in the medal table on this site then realised they didn't even make top 15 this year. Guess cooking there own food didn't help :)

Great job Japan, Amazing Olympics!

I heard a lot of the creators for Web comics barely make enough money to live. Around $1000 a month is doing good. These apps are just another way for a big company to screw over artists, just getting more effecient at it these days.

Posted in: Births in Japan hit record low in 2020; deaths down for first time in over a decade See in context

Aly, that has nothing to do with total deaths for the year. My reply was related to the article not covid numbers. It's amazing Japan managed to reduce deaths this year with an even more aging population than the rest of the world. I was so suprised Korea incresed this year I was sure they'd have similar results as Japan or better.

We could look at Taiwan, S Korea, and New Zealand- ALL have fared better than Japan.

Aly, Korea had an extra 10,000 deaths compared to last year. Seems they didn't fair better.

I'm from Australia, I know why we were so late. :) Just the tone of the article was so different compared to one here about Japan a few days ago. No 'late rollout', 'lags behind many other countries' here. :)

Posted in: Should Spotify payments go to artists you actually listen to? See in context

So Japanese artists must be better off since Physical albums are still a thing here. Lucky they didn't embrace streaming rapidly like the west.
