Cultural Differences

Two headlines side by side in my newsfeed:

American: “Only 3 survivors in a deadly airplane crash in Cuba.”

Ukrainian: “There are survivors in the airplane crash in Cuba! At least 3 people have survived!”

And now imagine how a Ukrainian with this disposition fares in American academia.
