 Boston College Eagles Football - Aloha Bowl   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
BC had a very difficult time at linebacker this season, providing little help to the beleaguered defensive line.
BC's top ten national ranking against the pass is a bit misleading because Eagle opponents were able to run so easily, but the Eagle secondary was a solid unit in 2000 led by Jonathan Ordway and Lenny Walls.
The BC pass defense has done poorly against teams with multiple pass receiving threats and the run defense has failed to stop any decent team all season.

By January of 2000, all leaves had fallen from the trees and only traces of mealybugs were observed during the cooler temperatures of winter, although all life stages were observed.

 BBC - History - The Neolithic and Bronze ages 2000 - 800 BC   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Until the 1960s, it was believed that Mesolithic society, based on hunting and gathering, lasted in Wales until about 2000 BC, when it gave way to Neolithic or New Stone Age society, based on farming.
Until recently, their presence was seen as the result of one of a series of migrations, and the prehistory of Britain was portrayed in terms of wave after wave of invaders.
The present tendency is to stress continuity rather than disruption and to maintain that Wales had received the greater part of its original stock of peoples by 2000 BC - a notion that seems to be confirmed by genetic studies.

 Amorites
Like the Akkadians, the Amorites centralized the government over the individual city-states and based their capital in the city of Babylon, which was originally called Akkad and served as the center of the Amorite empire.
For this reason, the Amorites are called the Old Babylonians and the period of their ascendancy over the region, which lasted from 1900-1600 BC, is called the Old Babylonian period.
B.C. they established under their patronage the first dynasty at Babylon.

The BC SPCA award is given annually to a full-time farmer who takes exceptional care of his or her animals.
At the awards ceremony this Saturday, the BC SPCA will be releasing the results of a consumer survey conducted last fall, showing that while 85% of British Columbians want to know that their food was raised humanely, only 34% believe that this is currently the case.
The BC SPCA is working on a humane labelling program to certify producers like Farmcrest Foods, so that consumers will be able to choose products raised to enhanced humane standards.

It could be that the BC defense returns depth and eight starters, or it could be that the BC offense returns four starters on the offensive line to go with two-time Heartland Conference rushing champ Tyson Goings, or it could even be the fact that the Beavers play six games in Salzman Stadium.
Taking the snaps for BC in 2000 will most likely be sophomore quarterback Brad Moore, who saw limited action behind Parrett in 1999.
BC will then host Hiram College and travel to Thiel College for non-league contests before using an off week to prepare for the 2000 Heartland Conference schedule.

 Mesopotamian Astrology 2,000 B.C. - O.A.D.
It is almost 2,000 years since astrologers invented natal horoscopes and house systems, yet astrology was nearly 2,000 years old when these techniques were first used.
It is interesting to note that, before 2,000 B.C., the semitic Akkadians, who came from the north of Mesopotamia, regarded the Moon and Venus as male and the Sun as female.
Soon after 600 B.C. the Greeks began to study astronomy, and the hellenistic and Mesopotamian worlds started the gradual process of cultural mixing which was to reach its climax with the conquests of Alexander the Great some 300 years later.

 DIVE BCs - Seac Sub Pro 2000 BC
I tested the Pro 2000 across a variety of diving environments: on a 'softy' holiday in 28ºC water, in mid-season UK waters and finally in the icy Antarctic - that's almost a 30ºC temperature differential.
The Pro 2000 functions both as a traditional jacket and as a semi-wing: pull back two cords located behind the side pockets and you stop air travelling into the front of the jacket, effectively giving you a wing suited to horizontal-attitude diving at depth.
BC with SBS (Sequential Buoyancy System) with advantages of both a wing and traditional BC design.

 Systems of Cities and World-Systems:
Observe in Table 1 that the SPI for the Mesopotamian regional world-system was -0.1 in 2000 B.C. The negative sign means that the Mesopotamian city size hierarchy was flatter than the rank-size rule.
In 1600 B.C. the Mesopotamian SPI was -0.19 and so the city size hierarchy had become a bit flatter than it had been in 2000.
But in 430 BC, the only time point we have that corresponds with the Persian-Macedonian world state, the SPI reveals a city size distribution which is moderately flat, a bit flatter than the mean SPI for all the Central system time points.
