So, Spotify was funny for a few minutes then was normal = Swift crashes Spotify. Clickbait headline used for more PR.

Posted in: Brad Pitt’s 'Bullet Train' adds Japanese subtitles for its Japanese dialogue See in context

They did this with the movie Babel too. Japanese characters were speaking very unnatural Japanese to each other.

noticed even with Squid Game the Westerners were clearly speaking lines that were directly translated from Korean.

Posted in: Gov't to request energy-saving measures in winter over power crunch concerns See in context

You have to ask yourself why now? Decreasing population, increased energy costs, and stagnant household incomes don't lead to more energy consumption.

This is to increase public support for nuclear energy and turning back on the nuclear power plants shut since the 2011 Earthquake.

Posted in: Police continue search for girl who disappeared near campsite in 2019 See in context

Three years is a long time. Three years of snow, rainy seasons, landslides. Animals would have also disturbed whatever remained.

Frustrating story to say the least. Everybody is asking why the search teams couldn't find her 3 years ago? Why would she have been in this location: the opposite direction to the friends she went to go play with? And, of course, was someone involved in all this.

The mother has gone through three years of hell, with no reprieve in sight.

Posted in: Slovakia stuns U.S. in shootout to win men's ice hockey quarterfinal See in context

The US let this one slip through their fingers. Couldn't fend off the last minute attack which tied the game and then clearly had no plan for the 3-on-3 overtime. The shootouts then tend to be a coin flip. Too bad.

Posted in: U.S. beats Canada 4-2 in Olympic men's hockey See in context

The US were young and fast while Canada were banking on a more physical, old-school type of play. Canada didn’t really show up until the last 15 minutes of the last period. Should be a preview of a good gold medal game.

This is actually the 1st time for the Czech’s to have an Olympic Women’s team. Which is amazing considering how good they are. Hats off.

The Japanese have done well despite being outplayed in their most recent matches. The true test will now come in the elimination round when they play better teams.

Good luck and thanks for making my life a little more entertaining.

Posted in: Japan beats Denmark 6-2 to stay unbeaten in women's ice hockey See in context

I would like to be informed if fighting is allowed in the Olympics' ice hockey.

No fighting. In women's hockey, there isn't even body checking allowed.

The Japanese have a good shot at Bronze this time. Amazing considering their level a few Olympics ago.

Posted in: Japan's single mothers, female nonregular workers hard hit by virus See in context

If you look at salaries in Japan they are abysmal. A single mother probably struggles to make 150,000 yen a month working full-time.

And they're forbidden to work part-time to supplement this low income.

Great game. As a Canadian, this hurt to watch, but it was such an exciting finish, so hats off to the US. The Canadian and American Women hockey teams are miles ahead of everyone else level-wise that I am sure this matchup will become a regular thing.

Good for them. They were a good team this year and barely lost to Sweden and Switzerland despite outshooting them both.

Japan did great. Best game they’ve ever played in the olympics. They were better than Sweden in a lot of categories, ie., shots in goal.

Posted in: Video shows car speeding through Shibuya’s scramble crossing filled with people See in context

The car was stopped by a police car but then took off. It actually went through the busy crossing twice. Once when most people had finished crossing (followed by a police car) then did a u-turn and came back when it was busier. Luckily the police siren might have had people looking up and around.

Likely they were drunk or had drugs and were trying to flee the cops.

Shouldn't there be some kind of deterrent in the punishment of these crimes? Helping someone "get better" is what a hospital does, not what the courts who find someone guilty of murder should be responsible for. My two yen.

Posted in: Bunch of grapes sells for record Y1 mil See in context

This is a PR move by the buyer. He, and his hotel, will get back their 1000000 yen in publicity through news coverage over the next few weeks. This has almost nothing to do with the grapes and their taste.

That was a snoozer. Congrats to Argentina on being the least bad team in this game. Although, having said that, the Dutch were the better team during the game, but deserve to get knocked out just for having no attacking game.
