...so I put an alien anal probe in your butt.
Even better! It comes equipped with Morgan Freeman reading a telephone book. That tops Donald Sutherland reading "The Cat in the Hat".
Common core standards are, in fact, lower than the standards that were required by many states. New York voted to suspend it for two years to keep stricter standards. Indiana has a bill sitting on the governor's desk to completely step away from common core to utilize tougher standards.
A large reason common core has an allure is because of bad effects that came about from NCLB. It was causing a lot of schools to face sanction over kids not testing to standard (which is the state's standard) because they had a tough standard. You then saw waivers for NCLB popping up all over the place. So if you lower standards you're less likely to face NCLB sanctions over children not testing to your standard.
There's just three motivating factors for creating multiple characters per account. The first is to grant the player multiple "lockouts" regarding raiding content. The second is to play on multiple servers. The third is to experiment with character creation IF you want to see how the character looks in game, since you can save character creations without actually creating the character.
The majority of characters created are undoubtedly gil sellers. The fact that it's 6.7m players for 400m hows just a month ago (when the game has been out for 4 months) making it just shy of 60hours per character is pretty indicative of that fact.
I'd provide about 14 donations to the local sperm bank... that's 20 TB of my genetic material backed up.
The following has a good summary of what lead up to the Pacific War but to summarize... the US embargo was not coupled with any reasonable demands that Japan take. The final embargos came after the Japanese invasion of French Indochina but the demands were over territory that the US had shown no significant previous interest in and had no strategic or economic interest in (China). The American demands to give up on their empire, coupled with the embargo, was telling Japan that they needed to submit to subservient economic dependence on the United States. No country would accept those demands because that's tantamount to giving up your sovereignty.
Because idioms happen and they confuse the shit out of faux pedants.
According to that link there's an article which helps break data down.
One thing to note is that I didn't get a good definition for what constitutes an accident so the only thing I have to go off of is "fatal accident".
40% of fatal accidents occur during landing. Survival rates were 18% in 1970s and 20% in 2000-2009.
En route accidents result with survival rates of 11% in 1970s and 7% In 2000-2009.
What the data does show is that if you have a serious accident during a flight, your chances of survival are greatly diminished. That makes sense because the forces involved during en route accidents are going to be far greater than takeoff or landing when the plane is travelling at a much slower speed.
You're trying to paint a distinction that doesn't matter. The end result is the same regardless if the payment goes through the beneficiary or not because the beneficiary is the beneficiary. You're assuming that the payment is in $ when the payment can be in $ or an equivalent value good.
I see a homeless man on the street asking for money to buy food. I take him to a restaurant and pay for his meal which costs $15 or I can give him $15 to go buy food. Both of these are direct payments to the homeless individual. In the former situation I ensure he is getting food with that $15 and isn't buying non-food items while the latter there's no insurance that the money will be spent on food.

Depressurization would require a descent that could drag the plane below altitude to be detected by radar. The more I look at the situation the more I believe that's what happened combined with the radio silence and IFF transponder being turned off because they were about to violate Thay airspace.
Plausible deniability. Civilian planes violating airspace can cause incidents.
The Malaysian military reported a radar signal that was likely the flight over the Straight of Malacca (west coast) rather than the Bay of Thailand which everyone has been focusing on.
I have a pet theory and it does well explain all the events. This theory is based on the fact that Thailand and Malaysian relations have been sour as of late.
So here's the facts, at least as I understand it.
1. Radar contact of the flight was lost over the Bay of Thailand and appeared to be turning (~750km NNE of Kuala Lumpur).
2. Radar contact was allegedly gained over the Straight of Malacca (~350km NW of Kuala Lumpur).
3. The flight made no radio contact.
4. The flight had its IFF transponder turned off.
The Malaysian/Thailand relations and the "resighting" of the flight over the Straight of Malacca is what will make the rest fall into place. If the plane suffered decompression it would have had to descend to roughly 10,000ft and would have fallen off of radar (1). The apparently turning of the flight path indicates that the flight may have been attempting to return to Kuala Lumpur, however the best way would have likely be to turn to port, fly over Thailand, reach the Straight of Malacca, and fly into Kuala Lumpur (that's conjecture). Turning off the transponder and undergoing radio silence would make it very difficult for Thailand to know this plane from Malaysia was violating their airspace. Thus attempting to avoid further souring of relations between the two countries. Radio contact and the transponder might have been reenabled when they got closer to Kuala Lumpur. However the plane may have been forced to land in the straight before then, possibly in one piece, and had sunk in the Straight.
It's a little thing called context, which you blatantly disregarded in your attempt to be pedantic. The entire post was phrased in the context of US-Japanese relations on how individual acts of Japanese aggression caused various responses by the US. Until December 7 (8), 1942 the Japan and US were not at a state of war. Being in a state of war with one country does not prevent you from going to war with a country you were previous not at war with.
Malaysia military reported a radar response for the plane off the west coast of Malaysia over the Straight of Malacca.
What I suspect is they had a depressurization requiring descent to 10,000ft that dropped them off radar. Then they banked to port, turned off their transponder, flew over Thailand (made easier to not having a transponder on) to reach the Straight of Malacca in order to attempt to return to Kuala Lumpur. Why they didn't turn the transponder back on would be a good question but I bet they landed in water in one piece and was submerged.
Given that Thailand and Malaysia have had some soured relations recently....
