Millennium
A MILLENNIUM (plural MILLENNIA or MILLENNIUMS) is a period equal to 1000 years , also called kiloyears. It derives from the Latin _mille_, thousand, and _annus_, year. It is often, but not always, related to a particular dating system . Sometimes, it is used specifically for periods of a thousand years that begin at the starting point (initial reference point) of the calendar in consideration (typically the year "1"), or in later years that are whole number multiples of a thousand years after it. The term can also refer to an interval of time beginning on any date. Frequently in the latter case (and sometimes also in the former) it may have religious or theological implications (see millenarianism ). Sometimes in use, such an interval called a "millennium" might be interpreted less precisely, i.e., not always being exactly 1000 years long. It could be, for example, 1050, etc. CONTENTS* 1 Counting years * 1.1 Ordinal * 1.2 Ranges * 2 Debate over millennium celebrations * 2.1 Viewpoint 1: x001–y000 * 2.2 Viewpoint 2: x000–x999 * 2.3 Popular approach * 2.4 Popular culture * 3 See also * 4 References COUNTING YEARSThere are two methods of counting years: current years (the count begins at the epoch) and elapsed years (the count is of completed years since the epoch).

2nd Millennium
The SECOND MILLENNIUM was a period of time that began on January 1, 1001 and ended on December 31, 2000 of the Gregorian calendar . It was the second period of one thousand years in the Anno Domini or Common Era . It encompassed the High and Late Middle Ages , the Mongol Empire , the Renaissance , the Baroque era , the early Modern Age , the age of Enlightenment , the age of colonialism , industrialization , the rise of nation states , and the 19th and 20th century with the impact of science , widespread education , and universal health care and vaccinations in many nations. The centuries of expanding large-scale warfare with high-tech weaponry (of the World Wars and nuclear bombs ) were offset by growing peace movements , the United Nations , plus doctors and health workers crossing borders to treat injuries and disease , and the return of the Olympics as contest without combat. Scientists prevailed in explaining intellectual freedom ; humans took their first steps on the Moon during the 20th century; and new technology was developed by governments, industry, and academia across the world, with education shared by many international conferences and journals

19th Century
The 19TH CENTURY (1 January 1801 – 31 December 1900) was the century marked by the collapse of the Spanish , Napoleonic , Holy Roman and Mughal empires. This paved the way for the growing influence of the British Empire , the Russian Empire , the United States , the German Empire , the French colonial empire and Meiji Japan , with the British boasting unchallenged dominance after 1815. After the defeat of the French Empire and its allies in the Napoleonic Wars , the British and Russian empires expanded greatly, becoming the world's leading powers. The Russian Empire expanded in central and far eastern Asia. The British Empire grew rapidly in the first half of the century, especially with the expansion of vast territories in Canada, Australia, South Africa and heavily populated India, and in the last two decades of the century in Africa. By the end of the century, the British Empire controlled a fifth of the world's land and one quarter of the world's population. During the post-Napoleonic era, it enforced what became known as the Pax Britannica , which had ushered into unprecedented globalisation , industrialisation , and economic integration on a massive scale

It saw great advances in communication and medical technology that by the late 1980s allowed for near-instantaneous worldwide computer communication and genetic modification of life.

1890s
The 1890S, which began on 1 January 1890 and ended on 31 December 1899, were sometimes referred to as the " Mauve Decade" – because William Henry Perkin 's aniline dye allowed the widespread use of that colour in fashion – and also as the " Gay Nineties ", referring to the fact that it was full of merriment and optimism. The phrase, "The Gay Nineties," was not coined until the 1920s. This decade was also part of the Gilded Age , a phrase coined by Mark Twain , alluding to the seemingly profitable era that was riddled with crime and poverty. In the United States, the 1890s were marked by a severe economic depression sparked by the Panic of 1893 , as well as several strikes in the industrial workforce.

1920s
The 1920 was a decade of the Gregorian calendar that began on January 1, 1920, and ended on December 31, 1929. In North America , it is frequently referred to as the " Roaring Twenties " or the " Jazz Age ", while in Europe the period is sometimes referred to as the "Golden Age Twenties " because of the economic boom following World War I . French speakers refer to the period as the _" Années folles "_ (“Crazy Years”), emphasizing the era's social, artistic, and cultural dynamism. The economic prosperity experienced by many countries during the 1920s (especially the United States) was similar in nature to that experienced in the 1950s and 1990s. Each period of prosperity was the result of a paradigm shift in global affairs. These shifts in the 1920s, 1950s, and 1990s, occurred in part as the result of the conclusion of World War I and Spanish flu , World War II , and the
