How Mexican and other Latin American News shows refer to the USA so as to avoid the obvious confusion created by both the terms Estados Unidos, and America\Americans in paricular.

EUA is another abbreviated term used.
(Estados Unidos America)
What do you mean by "America?" Duh! Look at a map, not only does Mexico classify as "America", but it occupies a large portion of the North American Continent. I think what you mean is EEUU.

What the state of West Virginia was first refered to apon becoming a state, but they chose West Virginia instead, overlooking the fact Virginia juts out about 50 to 70 miles west of WVA. Kanawha is the name of the river that cuts through the state all the way to the Ohio and which begins in the western North Carolina mountains.
It is also the name of the largest county, where the capitol is located, as well as it's airport.
Not only should the name of the State be changed back to this, but so should the capitol city, Charleston, to "Kanawha City."

Birthplace of Brad Dourif the voice of Chucky from Child's Play
Also the birthplace of John Nash Jr (a Beautiful Mind was based on him, he won a nobel peace prize in 1994)

The film version of "Silent Hill" took place here.

Dr. Hunter "Patch" Adams, a holistic doctor, founded the "Gesundheit!" Institute in the Hillsboro area of this state.

Daniel Johnston grew up here

Others
Steve Harvey, Jennifer Garner, Bob Denver (Gilligan), Don Knotts, Chris Sarandon

Also home to the annual Mothman festival (held in the the town of Point Pleasant where the Kanawha River feeds into the Ohio), and it's namesake , as well as the alien robot refered to as the flatwoods monster or the Braxton County Monster.

Most of the Stained Glass in the USA comes from this state.
They should have ket the name Kanawha. It's much more original and much less confusing. Same thing with the Capitol City of "Charleston".

♦ Where your neighborhood centers around a golf course and the closest retail is 4 miles (6.43737 km) away

♦ Where your zip code's tallest building rises 2 storeys and the population density never goes beyond 1,000 people per square mile.

Land in exurban areas is used in the most wasteful, unsustainable and impractical ways. It's not at all uncommon for property owners to have a half acre of their spread paved over. I've even heard of aviation enthusiasts

A widespread phenomenon which occurs when (usually) a couple will buy a house based on it's expansive lawn and one story layout because they have, or intend to have, two or more children.
One of the leading causes of suburban sprawl, childsprawl typically involves a ranch house set back from the street with a large open (read-a homogenously treeless lawn) back yard (which is often used to build another room onto the back, since zoning won't allow the front yard to be built on no matter how deep it is).
Dog Sprawl is similar to, and oftentimes accompanied by, dogsprawl, except that rather than use a public baseball diamond or other playing field, they use the yard for this purpose (which, in turn, compacts the soil and renders it unproductive.)
One need only watch HGTV to see the process of childsprawl in action.

Or the 0Xs, is the decade that begins in the year 2000 and ends in the year 2009. The zero refers to the decade and the X refers to an unknown or generalized number or year between 0 and 9.
This term is Used as one way to avoid confusion with the 2000s (Two-Thousands or 2XXXs) which describes the period between 2000 and 2999; and the Twenty-Hundreds (or 20XXs), which describe the period between 2000 and 2099.
The 200Xs will probably be remembered for the musical genres of Crunk and Emo the way the 90s were remembered for Grunge and (the sort of techno music played at) RAVEs; the 80s for New Wave, Hair Bands, and Old School Hip Hop; the 70s for disco and the 60s for Psychadellic.
