SORT BY Relevancy
Coming off the Steve Donahue era, the Boston College Eagles were a team last year in search of an identity. With old players shoehorned into a new system, the team endured growing pains en route to a four-win improvement over the season prior. Unfortunately, though, the end result was a 13-19 record, their fourth straight sub-.500 season.
Year Two has a decidedly different feel to things after the team underwent an overhaul. Junior Olivier Hanlan departed for the professional ranks, drafted this past spring by the Utah Jazz. Now playing for Zalgiris Kaunas in Lithuania, Boston College will need to find a new go-to scorer to replace the ACC's best shooter a year ago.
To start the year, it looks like Eli Carter will provide that spark. A transfer guard from Florida, Carter will be the lynchpin and sparkplug to the BC offense in 15-16. It's the biggest switch in the new-look Eagles, who return only a couple of key cogs from last year. Idy Diallo, injured a year ago, will see the court for the first time in maroon and gold, along with big man Johncarlos Reyes. Jerome Robinson and AJ Turner will provide depth, while Ervens Meznieks brings the European style of play, with its sharpshooting tall players.
They'll combine with the returning Garland Owens and Dennis Clifford to give BC a new feel in 15-16. The Eagles will try to work their way up the ACC ranks this season after finishing in the bottom four a year ago, a league featuring last year's national champion in Duke. Combined with a tough non-conference schedule, this is going to be an intriguing run for Jim Christian as he tries to resurrect the proud program of Jared Dudley, Craig Smith, and Reggie Jackson.
So tune in at 8 PM EST on Wednesday as BC Interruption breaks down and previews the Eagles and gets you ready for the opening game, this weekend, against St. Francis Brooklyn!

This is a pre-recorded episode of Stephen Roberts Live Presents: Cancel the Cabal. On this episode is two interviews: #1 - Ray Kirkus & #2 - Max Igan.
Bio for Ray Kirkus:
I am an 53 year old son of immigrants from Lithuania who came to the United States following WWII after losing their homeland to communists. I am a father to two grown sons and a husband of a wonderful and tolerant wife. I have done most things in life non-traditionally. I finished high school with a GED and earned most of my college credits via CLEP exams. I learned about life via the school of "hard knocks". I have done many things in my life giving me experiences in many spheres of the blue collar sector. I have learned one thing for sure; that government does not play by it's own rules. that the police lie, that the media has a hidden agenda and that there is little difference in the left/right paradigm. at least in regard to policy issues that truly matter and the direction this nation has taken.
Bio for Max Igan:
I live in Queensland, Australia and at the time of writing this essay, it is June 2007 and I am 49 years old. The pen-name Max Igan that I have become known by is a combination of my middle name and my sons’ middle name. As a matter of interest, Igan is the original Irish spelling of the name Ian, and no, I do not have any Irish roots, we just liked the name. :) I decided upon the name Max Igan as my pen-name & internet identity as a tribute to my son and as a dedication to him.I am however, very anti-corporatism and very anti-fascism and in the words of WW2 dictator, Benito Mussolini: “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism, because it is the merger of corporate and state power”. This is exactly what we are witnessing now on a global scale and it spells a very frightening and dangerous scenario if the situation is ignored and such corporate power is allowed to continue.
PROPHECY HEADLINES: Fearing Russian invasion, Lithuania reintroduces conscription | Right-ward shift hands Netanyahu stunning victory in Israeli election | ISIS defaces, vandalizes church buildings in Iraq | Iraqi troops suffer heavy losses in fight for Tikrit, forcing standstill | Hamas claims 'holy obligation' to attack Israel from Judea and Samaria
The Bible says in Luke 21:34-36: "And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."
PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled "God is Still on the Throne" (Part 4) from Dr. Ed Hindson's book "Revelation: Unlocking the Future".
The focal point of what John saw in chapter 4 is the One seated on the throne, not the throne itself. The throne merely symbolizes His great authority, power, and position. It is the One seated on the throne, God the Father, who is the focus of attention in this chapter.
John's description of the One seated on the throne is that of His Shekinah glory. John was overcome by the presence of the glory of God. He became transfixed on the indescribable occupant on the throne of the universe. He sees the One of whom he himself had said "no man has seen God at any time." Therefore, John's description is limited to that of His glorious appearance....

Zamora Texts: The Year 9000 with B.W. Wojciechowski
A lecturer in the year 9000 CE looks back over and analyses 14,000 years of human progress spanning the development of our ancestors and ourselves, and looking at the development of our descendants. With Zamora Texts: The Year 9000, B.W. Wojciechowski presents the lectures of Professor Yelita speaking in the year 9000 as he observes our social, political, military, scientific, technological and space-travel
progress through history. The lecturer believes that all the powerful societies from our past and present collapsed because of internal social decay, and he reports on an apocalyptic period of regression, when our modern democracies will collapse, leading to a 500-year period of war and chaos.
In this fifth book of the series, Wojciechowski highlights his strongly held belief that world leaders up to our times waste time trying to solve social problems by treating each in isolation, without objectivity, and without taking into consideration the interconnections, physical realities, and other constraints in any particular case.
Bohdan W. Wojciechowski was born in Wilno, Poland (now Vilnius, Lithuania) in 1935 and migrated to Scotland as a child, before moving to Canada and earning his PhD in Chemistry. After working in the petroleum industry in the United States, he returned to Canada and taught Chemical Engineering at Queen’s University for more than 30 years, publishing over 170 refered papers in the field of hydrocarbon reactions and more.
