  A Brief History of the 2d Marines
The 2d Regiment, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Allen C. Kelton, became part of the 1st Brigade of Marines stationed in the Philippines as a ready force to be committed wherever needed in Far Eastern Waters.
Company F of the 2d was part of a provisional battalion sent from Cavite, on 20 October 1901, to the island of Samar (in the southern Philippines) to reinforce and cooperate with United States Army troops in operations against insurgents on the island.
The 3d Battalion, 2d Marines, was moved from Tulagi to Guadalcanal on 14 September and inserted in the east side of the perimeter between elements of the 5th and 7th Marines.

2D computer graphics are mainly used in applications that were originally developed upon traditional printing and drawing technologies, such as typography, cartography, technical drawing, advertising, etc..
2D graphics models may combine geometric models (also called vector graphics), digital images (also called raster graphics), text to be typeset (defined by content, font style and size, color, position, and orientation), mathematical functions and equations, and more.
The user interface within individual software applications is typically 2D in nature as well, due in part to the fact that most common input devices, such as the mouse, are constrained to two dimensions of movement.

 2D Barcodes Explained
At this time most conventional CCD and Laser scanners cannot read 2D barcodes but this is likely to change as Barcode Man introduces the first of the range of low cost combined 1D/2D scanners.
2D barcodes will be used where 1D barcodes cannot hold the necessary amount of data but 1D barcodes have the advantage in low capacity applications like serial numbers.
The point where 2D barcodes should be used rather than 1D occurs somewhere between 10 and 20 data characters depending on particular circumstances.

 Hosea Ballou 2d
Hosea Ballou 2d (1796-1861), Universalist minister, scholar, educator, and journalist, was the grandnephew of the theologian and denominational leader Hosea Ballou.
Hosea 2d was born in Guilford, Vermont, the son of a farming couple, Martha Starr and Asahel Ballou.
According to Ballou 2d, church and civil politics—not the divine ordinance or early Christian teaching—established the heresy of belief in universal salvation.

The 2d Marine Division is the ground combat element of II MEF.
In the liberation of Kuwait, the 2d Marine Division attacked approximately 25 kilometers to the northwest of the 1st Marine Division.
Consequently, the 2d Marine Division’s orders were changed to allow it to attack at this separate location to breach the minefield more rapidly and to generate the maximum offensive operational momentum.

 "2D Programming in a 3D World: Delveloping a 2D Game Engine Using DirectX 8, Direct3D"
And the use of a series of sprites to represent an object, for instance a number of different facings of a unit, allow the simulation of animation and action when they are drawn in sequence.
The fundamental programming process for 2D graphics is the blit -- bit block transfer -- which is used to move the bit image of a sprite onto the display area.
Finally, to provide a smooth transition of the display from frame to frame, graphics operations (primarily blits) are usually done to a back buffer, which is basically a working copy of the screen area.

 Animation World Magazine
Legions of grim-faced 2D animators (or the dozen or so still employed) snap their pencils in two and forswear ink-and-paint forevermore; forward they rally to the 3D computer stations of the animation nation to begin delving into wireframes and pixels, ever so high on CGI.
One of the more flammable ideas being tossed on to the pyre of 2D animation is that 2D is somehow in direct, foredoomed competition with 3D, as if the 1930 Chicago Bears were slugging it out with the current version of the St. Louis Rams.
Another bizarre idea is the notion that 2D animation is a dying branch on the evolutionary tree, an antiquated form of the species relegated to fossil status in the wake of a more highly evolved life form called Computeris Generaticus Imagii.

 UGS: Products & Solutions: PLM Components: D-Cubed: Product News: 2D DCM, Version 48.0
A key feature of the 2D DCM that distinguishes it from less sophisticated solvers is its flexible support for constraining parametric curves, including splines.
Another strength of the 2D DCM is its support for variational patterns that eliminate the restrictions of the parent-child relationship in traditional 2D patterning situations.
In these circumstances, the 2D DCM will determine the behaviour of the underdefined pattern, using a combination of internal heuristics and sophisticated solution controls that it makes available to the host application.

A 2D-map is a two-dimensional chromosome map of genetic markers, with all markers arrayed in their approximate order based upon crossovers found in the dataset.
As of November 1996, 2D maps for chromosomes 11, 14, 10 and X chromosome are on-line.
The method and the map are described in detail in the paper entitled " A 2D crossover-based map of the human X chromosome as a model for map integration." which appeared in the March, 1995 issue of Nature Genetics [volume 9, number 3, pages 261-265].

 2D symbologies make their mark
While there are many successful applications using 2D codes on labels, documents, and plastic identification cards, the solutions become more challenging when the 2D code is directly marked into the material to be tracked.
By using an electric marking head that includes a high-performance carbide stylus, the unit is suited for marking forged, cast, or machined parts with marking windows in the range of 90 x 60 mm to 100 x 150 mm.
While there are numerous successful 2D bar code projects for paper- and label-based applications, directly marked 2D symbologies do have their challenges.

 CADENCE CHANNEL: 3D Vizualization: 2D Modeling-Preparing 2D Data for Use As 3D Models   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
One method is to create the initial 2D shape with the Start New Shape option checked on (default mode), as shown in Figure 2, then uncheck Start New Shape and create the subsequent 2D elements that will be nested within the original shape as splines.
This can be accomplished by either converting a standard 2D primitive (rectangle, circle, ngon and so forth) to an editable-spline object or by adding an Edit Spline modifier to a 2D primitive and using Attach in the modifier.
