There is no particular reason. It is just on a 4 year cycle that started in 1930, which wasn't a leap year. With the exception of 1942 and 1946, due to World War II, it has been held every 4 years since then. Leap years have other major sporting events in them that are also on 4 year cycles. It would be a bit crowded if all sports events that follow 4 year cycles were all held in leap years and it would leave the other years with less events for sports fans. So many sporting events that are on 4 year cycles, such as the FIFA World Cup, happen to be in different years.
The Surf exists, probably more than 1000 years and is one of the oldest practices of mankind. Glide over the waves is possibly one of the oldest sports in the history of mankind. However, the Surf is rediscovered by the first English sailors visiting Polynesia in the eighteenth century, it does not appear as a sport until the late nineteenth century and became popular in the second decade of the twentieth century. The rest of the disciplines associated with this water sport are appearing over time as a logical evolution of surfing. You can find more info on the History of Surfing in TotalSurfCamp.

Greed on the part of both owners and players
there r 52 weeks.. so biweekly would make 104 pay periods
No, you divide 52 by 2 if you are paid biweekly, therefore there are 26 pay periods in a year. There would be 104 pay periods if you were paid twice a week, not paid once every 2 weeks.
In 1584 Sir Walter Raleigh discovered the area of Roanoke Island. He named the land Virginia, in honor of Queen Elizabeth, known as The Virgin Queen. The following year, Raleigh established a colony on Roanoke but it did not survive. It became known as the Lost Colony. In 1607, the first permanent English settlement in America was founded in Jamestown, Virginia. MrV In the 1580's, a group that included Sir Humphry Gilbert and his younger half-brother Sir Walter Raleigh promoted a scheme to establish outposts that could trade with the Indians and also provide bases for attacks on Spain. Approving the idea, Queen Elizabeth I authorized Raleigh and Gilbert to Colonize North America. After two preliminary expeditions in 1587, Raleigh sent 117 colonists to the territory he named Virginia for Queen Elizabeth, the "Virgin Queen". They established a settlement on Roanoke Island, in what is now North Carolina, but in 1590 a resupply ship could not find them. The colonists had vanished. The only remnince of the colonists found on the settlement was the word CROATOAN on a nearby tree.(S.Menzel)
Technology will change our lives in the next twenty years without doubt ..
Evey time we fine new things and we start to fit with them ..........
As long as the technology is still important and with time do it develops by scientists we will move to technology period which it control by our advance in this century .

The word "democracy" combines the elements demos (which means "people") and kratos ("force, power"). Kratos is an unexpectedly brutish word. In the words "monarchy" and "oligarchy", the second element arche means rule, leading, or being first. It is possible that the term "democracy" was coined by its detractors who rejected the possibility of, so to speak, a valid "demarchy". Whatever its original tone, the term was adopted wholeheartedly by Athenian democrats.
The word is attested in Herodotus, who wrote some of the earliest Greek prose to survive, but even this may not have been before 440 or 430 BC. It is not at all certain that the word goes back to the beginning of the democracy, but from around 460 BC at any rate an individual is known whose parents had decided to name him 'Democrates', a name which may have been manufactured as a gesture of democratic loyalty; the name can also be found in Aeolian Temnus, not a particularly democratic state.
The Athenian democracy (sometimes called classical democracy) was the democratic system developed in the Greek city-state of Athens (comprising the central city-state of Athens and its surrounding territory Attica). Athens was one of the very first known democracies and probably the most important in ancient times. Other Greek cities set up democracies, most but not all following an Athenian model, but none were as powerful or as stable (or as well-documented) as that of Athens. It remains a unique and intriguing experiment in direct democracy where the people do not elect representatives to vote on their behalf but vote on legislation and executive bills in their own right. Participation was by no means open to all inhabitants of Attica, but the in-group of participants was constituted with no reference to economic class and they participated on a scale that was truly phenomenal. Never before had so many people spent so much of their time in governing themselves.
Solon (594 BC), Cleisthenes (508 BC), and Ephialtes of Athens (462 BC) all contributed to the development of Athenian democracy. Historians differ on which of them was responsible for which institutions, and which of them most represented a truly democratic movement. It is most usual to date Athenian democracy from Cleisthenes, since Solon's constitution broke down and was replaced by the tyrant Peisistratus, whereas Ephialtes revised Cleisthenes' constitution relatively peacefully. The end of the Pisistratid tyranny was later attributed to the assassination of Hipparchus, the brother of the tyrant Hippias, by Harmodius and Aristogeiton, honored in later years by the Athenians for their alleged restoration of Athenian freedom. The assassination took place four years before the revolution; although the increased severity of the tyranny may have destabilized it. They were particularly popular with the aristocratic opponents of democracy.
The greatest and longest-lasting democratic leader was Pericles; after his death, Athenian democracy was twice briefly interrupted by oligarchic revolution towards the end of the Peloponnesian War. It was modified somewhat after it was restored under Eucleides; the most detailed accounts are of this fourth-century modification rather than the Periclean system. It was suppressed by the Macedonians in 322 BC. The Athenian institutions were later revived, but the extent to which they were a real democracy is debatable.
Another interesting insight into Athenian democracy comes from the law that excluded from decisions of war those citizens who had property close to the city walls - on the basis that they had a personal interest in the outcome of such debates because the practice of an invading army was at the time to destroy the land outside the walls. A good example of the contempt the first democrats felt for those who did not participate in politics can be found in the modern word 'idiot', which finds its origins in the ancient Greek word ἰδιώτης (idiōtēs), meaning a private person, a person who is not actively interested in politics; such characters were talked about with contempt and the word eventually acquired its modern meaning. In his Funeral Oration, Pericles states: 'it is only we who regard the one not participating in these duties not as unambitious but as useless.'
In short the answer to your question: 6th Century BC. (the 500's). :]

"Leap" will be capitalised at the start of a sentence, but "year" immediately after will not be. The phrase would not be capitalised in the middle of a sentence. There is a movie called "Leap Year" and it would be capitalised, as it is a proper noun.
2012 is a leap year.
2000 was a leap year, and so were 2004 and 2008. Leap years will fall in almost every year that is evenly divisible by 4.
The exception is for years that end in "00" (1900, 2000, 2100). These will not be leap years unless, like 2000, they are also evenly divisible by 400.
After 2008, the next year to have five Fridays in February will be 2036.
547.5 days or 548 days.
There have been 26 leap years since 1909. They were:
The first Ku Klux Klan was founded on December 24th, 1865 by six Tennessee veterans of the Confederate army.
Yes, 1548 is evenly divisible by 4 and not evenly divisible by 100.
