The Taylor Swift effect
The Taylor Swift effect

Yahoo! News, Thursday 18th June 2015
With Athens owing a 1.6-billion-euro payment to the IMF at the end of June and Greece’s international bailout due to expire the same day, Eurozone finance ministers are pessimistic about the chances of a deal. “There will be no period of grace” for the loan payment, IMF chief Christine Lagarde told reporters. “I have a term of June 30. If it’s not paid by July 1, it’s not paid.”

Apple Music has reversed its payment policy, a day after the singer Taylor Swift said she was refusing to allow the company to stream her album 1989. In an open letter to Apple, Swift said she was withholding the record as she was unhappy with the three-month free trial offered to subscribers. Now Apple says it will pay artists for music streamed during trial periods.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
