  +
'''Microtransaction''' (sometimes abbreviated as '''MTX''') is a [[business model]] where users can purchase [[virtual good]]s via [[micropayment]]s. Microtransactions are often used in [[free-to-play]] games to provide a revenue source for the developers. While microtransactions are a staple of the [[mobile app]] market, they are also available on traditional computer platforms such as [[Valve Corporation|Valve]]'s [[Steam (software)|Steam]] platform as well as console gaming.
  +
  +
Free-to-play games that include a microtransaction model are sometimes referred to as "freemium". Another term, "pay-to-win," is sometimes used derogatorily to refer to games where buying items in-game can give a player advantage over others, particularly if the items cannot be obtained by free means. The objective with a free-to-play microtransaction model is to involve more players in the game by providing desirable items or features that players can purchase if they lack the skill or available time to earn these through game-play. Also, presumably the game developer's marketing strategy is that in the long term, the profits from a microtransaction system will outweigh the profits from a one-time-purchase game.
  +
  +
[[Loot boxes]] are an increasingly growing form of microtransactions. Through purchasing a loot box, the player acquires a seemingly random assortment of items. Loot boxes are mostly used on PC and console games. The concept behind loot boxes is that, despite gaining more items for a given price, the player may not want those items, and can end up buying the same item multiple times. Instead of a one-time purchase for the desired item, users may have to buy multiple boxes. This method has also been called a form of underage gambling.
  +
  +
Items and features available by microtransaction can range from cosmetic (such as decorative character attire) to functional (such as weapons and items). Some games allow players to purchase items that can be acquired through normal means, but some games include items that can only be obtained through microtransaction. Some developers<ref>{{Cite web|title = Common mis-conceptions about microtransactions {{!}} Game Sparks|url = http://www.gamesparks.com/blog/micro-transactions/|website = www.gamesparks.com|access-date = 2016-01-14}}</ref><ref>An example of a game like this is [[Path of Exile]]</ref> ensure that only cosmetic items are available this way to keep gameplay fair and balanced.
  +
  +
Microtransactions are most commonly provided through a custom store interface placed inside the app for which the items are being sold. [[Apple Inc.]] provides a framework dubbed "in-app purchases" for initiating and processing transactions.<ref>{{cite web|url=https://developer.apple.com/appstore/in-app-purchase/index.html|title=In-App Purchase for Developers - Apple Developer|work=apple.com}}</ref> [[Google]]'s framework for the same use is referred to as "in-app billing",<ref>{{cite web|url=http://developer.android.com/guide/google/play/billing/index.html|title=Google Play In-app Billing|work=android.com}}</ref> named more from the developer's point of view.

::<p>One thing which occurred to me I remembered reading something in one of the sources. Initially tried to find it again by general searching but couldn't. Came back here and checked all the sources and fortunately it was in them. The last WaPo source says: {{talkquote|Riordan died of blunt impact trauma to her head, neck and torso, Philadelphia Department of Public Health spokesman James Garrow said Wednesday night.</p><p>"The listed cause of death seems consistent with what we've heard in media reports," he said, though he could not confirm the nature of her death. "The cause that we're listing and have written on the death certificate sounds consistent with what has been reported," he said, but he could not say whether the injuries were caused by "the fuselage or the air or the window or debris."}} I was initially thinking this was referring solely to blunt impact trauma being the cause of death. However thinking about it more, I believe I'm wrong. While it's difficult to say for sure without a more complete transcript I think the spokesperson did directly state the cause of death and then followed up with the additional comments which were relating to whether what they saw/found was consistent with media reports on how she died i.e. she was partially sucked out. (Actually I was initially thinking the part came before they later confirmed the cause of death as I didn't read it properly.) </p><p>I'm not an expert on medical examiners, but I would imagine they could provide an educated guess even without any studies on the specific patterns of injuries whether it's like the injury pattern arose from actually at least partially going through the window or just hitting something in the plane (perhaps the window itself) but no part of the body going through. It seems quite likely going through even just the head for example, would be fairly traumatic in and of itself which significant associated injuries especially when there significant pressure trying to force the whole body through. Of course even from the medical examiner it's still just speculation even if informed without further confirmation hence the way the comments were worded. (There is also a witness report [http://time.com/5244818/southwest-flight-nurse-cpr/] from a nurse who performed CPR although one would expect even if I suspect she realise it was likely hopeless that she was more concerned about trying to save the passenger than in examining the injuries.) </p><p>[[User:Nil Einne|Nil Einne]] ([[User talk:Nil Einne|talk]]) 07:43, 24 April 2018 (UTC)</p>

'''Presidential elections''' were held in the Soviet Union on 14 March 1990. [[President of the Soviet Union]] was elected for five years. This was the only presidential election in the [[Soviet Union]], as the Presidential post was introduced in 1990, and the [[Dissolution of the Soviet Union|Soviet Union disintegrated]] in 1991. The elections were uncontested, they were attended only by the current head of state [[Mikhail Gorbachev]].<ref name=bbc/><ref>[https://rusfate.ru/sssr/267-vybory-pervogo-prezidenta-sssr.html Выборы первого президента СССР]</ref><ref name=histrf/>

Although the Constitution established direct elections, it was decided to hold the first presidential elections indirectly.<ref>[http://constitution.garant.ru/history/ussr-rsfsr/1977/red_1977/5478736/ USSR Constitution 1997. Article 127.1]</ref> This decision was dictated by the fact that the election of the President is necessary immediately, because the processes taking place in the country do not leave time for the holding of national elections.<ref>[https://www.liveinternet.ru/users/dejavu57/post356389864/ 15 МАРТА 1990 Г. 25 ЛЕТ НАЗАД МИХАИЛ ГОРБАЧЕВ БЫЛ ИЗБРАН ЕДИНСТВЕННЫМ В ИСТОРИИ СССР ПРЕЗИДЕНТОМ]</ref>
