2000

As the world was in turmoil over the future of the Earth, Tom Cruise was a happy man as his movie Mission Impossible II was the highest-grossing film at the box office.

2000

The year 2000 was also the World Mathematical year as well as the International Year for the Culture of Peace. It is the year that saw the publishing of Stephen King’s Riding the Bullet, the world’s first E-book for the mass market.

At the height of the internet bubble, America Online Inc. announced that it was acquiring Time Warner Inc for a cool $182 billion, which in stock and debt. The merger formed a $350 billion mega media empire spanning music production, publishing, entertainment, cable TV, news, and internet services. The Federal Trade Commission gave the two companies to go ahead with the merger in December 2000. AQL shareholders owned 55% of the new company while Time Warner shareholders owned the remaining 45%.

On August 9, tire manufacturer Bridgestone/Firestone Inc. announced they recalled over 6 million Wilderness AT, ATX, and ATX II tires. The recall came two days after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration linked the tires to hundreds of accidents resulting in 46 deaths. The tread of the tires was the problem with the tires. The investigation led to the fact that the tread on the 15-inch Wilderness AT tires, ATX and ATX II tended to peel off, and this resulted in vehicles rolling over.

Christmas is one of the happiest seasons of the year to many people. In China, on Christmas day 2000, a Christmas party turned deadly. The party was at an unlicensed disco, and it caught fire as the party rolled on. More than 300 people lost their lives in the incident that took place in Luoyang China.

Contrary to reports that the world was ending, year 2,000 ushered in an age of technological advancements and access to civil rights for marginalized societies and groups. It is the first year of the current millennium.
