The committee concluded that some of the depressed level of economic activity in September 2001 was the result of the exceptional events of September 11, and thus should not be considered in identifying the trough.
The committee determined that the fourth quarter of 2001 was a quarterly trough in economic activity.

The panel said it was determining only that in November 2001, the recession — which it defines as a period of falling economic activity spread across the economy — came to an end and the economy began growing again.
After contracting the first three quarters of 2001, gross domestic product or GDP, the country's total output of goods and services, began growing again in the fourth quarter 2001 and has been rising since, although in a zig-zag pattern that has not been strong enough to keep unemployment from rising.
The NBER in its statement said that it waited to call an end to the 2001 recession because it wanted to be sure any subsequent downturn would be a separate event and not just a continuation of the 2001 slump.

 Amazon.com: DVD: Sweet November (2001)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The 1968 version of Sweet November was a frothy fable that worked, for the most part, due to the charmingly offbeat chemistry of costars Sandy Dennis and Anthony Newley.
Charlize Theron brings on her charm, and Keanu Reeves turns in a surprisingly worthy performance in "Sweet November," a movie that's as light as a fall breeze.
Yes, the way in which the two develop their romance is a bit tough to swallow at first, but if you can ignore that and allow their growing relationship to touch your heart, then the movie succeeds on those terms.

 ICANN | Announcement | 19 November 2001   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
After a long governmental procurement process, on Friday, 26 October 2001, the United States Government entered an agreement with NeuStar, Inc. to provide registry services for the.us country-code top-level domain (ccTLD), replacing VeriSign, Inc. Consistent with this change in contracted operators, on Friday, 16 November 2001, the.us ccTLD was redelegated from VeriSign to NeuStar.
The United States Government informed ICANN on 16 November 2001 that, because of complexities of U.S. procurement laws, it was not able to extend the existing arrangements with VeriSign nor complete the necessary three-way set of communications among itself, ICANN, and NeuStar.
This presented a peculiar set of circumstances: ICANN was faced with the choice of (1) either authorizing a redelegation, or (2) creating a situation where the event would have occurred regardless but there would be inconsistent data in the IANA database.

Computers are powerful because they can quickly and accurately perform repetitive operations, and the loop is the shell construct that puts this power right into your hands.
