Uh, that's tricky.

Green covers mainly Montana, N&S Dakota and Minnesota, but it's very weak compared to the other colors. On a low-contrast monitor it could appear almost white.

There are also many areas in plain white.

EDIT
Maybe this can help:

It depends, there is also the possibility that you stay with the previous note, if it was higher.

ANyway, people in Montana and the DAkotas don't know about roundabouts, apparently. And it would serve them well, to prevent accidents on intersections of major 1+1 routes.

US should have a program to build like 20.000 roundabouts especially on rural areas.

Why not? The legend says that during his reign there were no thieves or criminals in Romania. You would be perfectly safe there.

To say that a dam at Nagymaros could have saved the whole Danube region from the floods is simply crazy. I don't even think that the situation in Bratislava would be better if that dam had been built.

So, water is coming to Budapest. Highest water is expected for Tuesday next week, specialists except 8.8m which would be 20cm higher then the highest ever measured level. However, the city will not be flooded any way, the river has so high banks both sides. Some smaller town above Budapest, and a residential area in Norther Budapest may be flooded.

Or in the Romanian town of Ştei, which was previously called "Dr. Petru Groza" (groza means horror in Slovenian).


Btw, which letter is "more correct" in Romanian? "ş" or "ș"? I like "ş" more.

Just because they have no word for it doesn't mean they're not aware of its existence. And the question was very poorly worded anyway.

Groza is a usual romanian name.

In Romanian Groază = horror

ș is the correct version in romanian.

"ş" or "ș"? - never thought about this, but I think "ș" is correct

groza means the same in Romanian. And the guy was not far from it.
Quote:
After Groza was succeeded by Gheorghiu-Dej in 1952, he occupied the position of chief of state for the next six years until 1958, when he died from complications following a stomach operation. Although never a Communist Party member, Groza had permitted the gradual introduction of a communist regime in Romania. By pretending a limited independence from the Soviets and Communist Party leaders, Groza allowed the Communist Party to develop a more substantial backing and, through his repression of both the media and political organizations, limited any form of opposition or dissent within the state. After ousting the king and declaring the nation a "People's Republic", Groza served to ease the transition towards the later communist regime under Gheorghiu-Dej.
The mining town of Ştei was named Dr. Petru Groza after him, a name it kept until after the Romanian Revolution of 1989.

Notice how even the letters "s" are a bit different (ş, ș). So "ş" isn't correct? Too bad, I like it more. Don't you think that "Ș" in the article looks a bit out of place? To me it looks like some different font inserted in the text.

It depends on which fonts you have loaded on your keyboard. But that's the correct Romanian letter and you have to read it as a Slovenian "Š".
As far as I know, ''ş'' is used in Turkish.

If you compare capital letters "S" and "Ș" in the Romanian article, they are a little different. Or if you compare Ștei with Spain in the title, they are a lot different (and apparently in this forum as well, if they are bolded (while the Turkish "ş" stays the same)).
