Study: Business strategies of companies with longevity of 300 years or longer in Japan

Companies come and go. Startups start and then stop. Spinouts whirl and then falter. In one part of the world, however, it is not hard to find companies the history of which might stretch back more than a century, sometimes two or three centuries, and in many cases much, much longer. That place is Japan. Most Western countries might boast a handful of corporate entities with great longevity stretching back to the pre-Industrial era, but Japan has an astonishing 33,000-plus companies that are at least a century old. Some of them have their foundations built in the 6th Century of the Common Era.

OlliOlli World already feels like 2022's most essential indie

There is a bear in OlliOlli World who might be the actual devil. Like any good satanic soul, it cleverly obscures an evil nature by looking disarmingly cute. After all, who could hate a cartoon grizzly who rides down a rapid river in a rubber ring? Well, I can. That bear is my nemesis, a creature I pit my wits against for over an hour in one of the action platformer's many side-quests, and I just can't seem to beat him to the finish line. Until, that is, when everything comes together – my thumbs conducting a skating symphony. When I nail the final rail on the approach to the finish line to finally get the better of evil Baloo, I'm not too proud to admit that some air-punching was involved.

This follows an earlier quashing of the original decision by Border Force officials to cancel the Serbian player’s visa when he arrived in Australia because he didn’t have a COVID vaccination. Djokovic’s lawyers headed to court to seek an injunction against his deportation, which has now been dismissed.
