Operationally, this weakening was not noticed by the NHC, leading to their assessment of the storm making landfall (Landfall (meteorology)) in El Salvador around 11:00 pm PDT (0600 UTC on May 20) as a Category 1 hurricane (SSHS#Category 1) on the Saffir–Simpson Hurricane Scale. In post-storm analysis, it was determined that the center of Adrian never actually crossed the coastline of El Salvador. Rather, convection associated with the system was sheared northward away from the center of circulation. Meteorologists at the NHC stated that Adrian's near-parallel track along the coast of El Salvador contributed to its rapid weakening as well as keeping the low offshore. Later on May 20, the system weakened to a tropical depression and made landfall in Honduras, along the Gulf of Fonseca, around 1:00 pm PDT (2100 UTC) with winds of 25 mph (35 km h). Several hours later, Adrian dissipated over the mountains of Central America. ::'''Pacific''': Samoa, Tonga ::'''Central America''': Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama ::'''Northern South America''': French Guyana, Guyana, Venezuela ::'''Caribbean''': Florida, Haiti, Jamaica, Puerto Rico ::'''Central America''': Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama ::'''Northern South America''': Guyana, Venezuela thumb left A page from the '' Lienzo de Tlaxcala (File:LienzodeTlaxcalaLamina5.jpg)'', showing a Spanish conquistador accompanied by Tlaxcalan allies and a native porter alt Painting with three prominent indigenous warriors in single file facing left, wearing cloaks and grasping staves, followed by a dog.

The sources describing the Spanish conquest of Guatemala include those written by the Spanish themselves, among them two of four letters written by conquistador Pedro de Alvarado to Hernán Cortés in 1524, describing the initial campaign to subjugate the Guatemalan Highlands.

The game's story line starts off with the American military (Military of the United States) being caught completely off guard by the sudden massive Soviet (Soviet Union) invasion of the USA (United States), with Soviet aircraft, naval vessels, amphibious forces, and paratroopers coming in on both the East Coast (East Coast of the United States) and West Coast (West Coast of the United States) and with the majority of Soviet ground forces coming in through Mexico, which had recently voted in a communist government. The USA attempts to retaliate with the use of nuclear missiles (nuclear weapon), but Yuri (Yuri (Command & Conquer)), leader of the Soviet Psychic Corps and Premier Romanov's top advisor, uses his mind control to manipulate the personnel charged with launching the warheads and leaves them to explode in their silos. Within hours, the USA is overrun with Red Army troops.

At 48kb it is way over the recommended limit of 32kb. If I were reviewing it in the FAC, I would object until the size is brought down. You see, articles like these have discrete sections (as opposed to continous sections such as History) and can very well be shortened. (See Talk:United States - ''Quest for shortnening'' where I've lent my comments on the article size). The second point I've found lacking are inline references. If you say ''005–06 budget provides $2.5 billion'' show me where you have referenced the figure from. Take a look at India for how this is achieved.   Nichalp (user:Nichalp) (Talk (User Talk:Nichalp)) 06:52, May 25, 2005 (UTC) *Thanks for your comment. First up, size, at least in my experience, isn't an issue for FACs anymore with many exceeding the 32kb suggested limit. There are parts that could potentially be shortened, and I'll have another go at that. I think that for a summrary article of this type it is impractical to use footnotes so I used inote, the references are there but you need to be in edit mode to see them, there is no policy on refernce style an dinote is preferred by many editors. --nixie (User:Petaholmes) 07:05, 25 May 2005 (UTC) ******Hmmm. I actually like a mixture of Footnotes 2 and 3. I like 2 because of the in text number does not have brackets (less clunky) and 3 for the 'where in the text' link. But hey, can't have your cake and eat it, right? Oh, and shouldn't the footnote be placed after the full stop (period)? But then, I suppose that wouldn't work (with the template and all). So footnote 4 it is?--Cyberjunkie (User:Cyberjunkie) 10:28, 25 May 2005 (UTC) ***I don't believe that by reducing the article length you are sacrificing quality. I've long been involved with the India page, and as you can see, the entire contents of the page totals 29kb. A million things could be said about Australia and future editors could very well go on adding stuff here. That's why we need a summary here and the best way to do so is by précis writing.

Starting from a Marxist analysis of the ideas of Max Weber on China and India's "hydraulic-bureaucratic official-state" and building on Marx's sceptical view of the Asiatic Mode of Production, Wittfogel came up with an analysis of Oriental despotism which emphasized the role of irrigation works, the bureaucratic structures needed to maintain them and the impact that these had on society, coining the term "hydraulic empire" to describe the system. In his view, many societies, mainly in Asia, relied heavily on the building of large-scale irrigation works. To do this, the state had to organize forced labor from the population at large. This required a large and complex bureaucracy staffed by competent and literate officials. This structure was uniquely placed to also crush civil society and any other force capable of mobilizing against the state. Such a state would inevitably be despotic, powerful, stable and wealthy. publisher Ithaka Harbors, Inc in many parts of the world including Southeast Asia, Taiwan, India, Australia, and West Africa.
