2000 (MM) was a century leap year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2000th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 1000th and last year of the 2nd millennium, the 100th and last year of the 20th century, and the 1st year of the 2000s decade.
The year 2000 is sometimes abbreviated as "Y2K" (the "Y" stands for "year", and the "K" stands for "kilo" which means "thousand"). The year 2000 was the subject of Y2K concerns, which were fears that computers would not shift from 1999 to 2000 correctly. However, by the end of 1999, many companies had already converted to new, or upgraded, existing software. Some even obtained "Y2K certification". As a result of massive effort, relatively few problems occurred.
These principles form the foundation of both an agenda for America in the year 2000 and this platform for our party. They point us toward reforms in government, a restoration of timeless values, and a renewal of our national purpose.
The mapping of the human genome, identifying every gene in the human body, may, over time, translate into new treatments and cures for scourges like cancer, Alzheimer's, heart disease, and HIV/AIDS, as well as diseases that affect the very young, such as muscular dystrophy and juvenile diabetes. A century ago, the average American life span was 55. Today, it is 78, and children born in this decade have the realistic prospect of living into the Twenty-Second Century. A simple blood test can now screen for prostate cancer at its earliest appearance. Biochemistry is revolutionizing the field of mental health. Millions of operations have been replaced with CAT scans. We want that progress to continue. But translating the promise of medical research into readily available treatments requires more than just money; it needs a whole new prescription for health care. That prescription is what the Republican party offers in the elections of 2000.
The Child Citizenship Act of 2000 allows foreign-born, biological, and adopted children of U.S. citizens to acquire U.S. citizenship if they satisfy certain requirements before age 18. The Act applies to children who did not acquire U.S. citizenship at birth.
Children who were age 18 or older on February 27, 2001 (i.e. children born on or before February 27, 1983) are not eligible to acquire U.S. citizenship from their parents pursuant to the Child Citizenship Act of 2000. A child may be eligible to automatically derive U.S. citizenship on another basis. You may also wish to contact U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to apply for the child's naturalization.
Natura 2000 is a network of core breeding and resting sites for rare and threatened species, and some rare natural habitat types which are protected in their own right. It stretches across all 27 EU countries, both on land and at sea. The aim of the network is to ensure the long-term survival of Europe's most valuable and threatened species and habitats, listed under both the Birds Directive and the Habitats Directive.
The Natura 2000 Viewer is an online tool that presents all Natura 2000 sites. It provides key information on designated species and habitats, data on population sizes and information on conservation status. The viewer can be used for general purposes of for more specific searches.
Natura 2000 is not a system of strict nature reserves from which all human activities would be excluded. While it includes strictly protected nature reserves, most of the land remains privately owned. The approach to conservation and sustainable use of the Natura 2000 areas is much wider, largely centered on people working with nature rather than against it. However, Member States must ensure that the sites are managed in a sustainable manner, both ecologically and economically.
On our pages, you will find more information about how the network was established, where the Natura 2000 sites are located, how they are managed and how Member States can better protect nature by working together across Europe. The European Commission's biogeographical process provides a co-operation platform to stakeholders and managers of the Natura 2000 network. You can also read our guidance documents on the Natura 2000 network management, access its Communication Platform and find out about the Natura 2000 awards.

The margin in the Sunshine State was so close that it took one's breath away. While the races in Florida last week appeared to be decided by thousands or tens of thousands, the presidential count there in 2000 was being measured in hundreds.
When we revisit the gut-wrenching night of Nov. 7, 2000, we recall that the TV networks looked at exit polls and sample swing precincts from Florida and declared it a win for Al Gore, who was the incumbent vice president and the Democratic nominee for president.
In a chorus that echoes those voices of 2000, Florida Republicans (and indeed the GOP generally) are expressing dismay at the recount of 2018. They celebrated on Tuesday night in the belief that their candidates had prevailed. Republican Ron DeSantis proclaimed victory in the governor's race and current Gov. Rick Scott did the same for the Senate seat.
When U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was formed, the agency operated its detention system under a set of National Detention Standards (NDS) that had been issued in September 2000. NDS established consistent conditions of confinement, program operations and management expectations within the agency's detention system.
You don't need to file an amended return. However, if the information displayed in the CP2000 notice is correct, and you have additional income, credits or expenses to report, you may want to complete and submit a Form 1040-X, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, and return it with a completed response form. If you choose to file an amended return, write "CP2000" on top of your return and attach it behind your completed response form. To ensure the information is sent to the proper area for processing, send the information in the envelope provided or fax it to the number shown on the notice.
Summary staging is the most basic way of categorizing how far a cancer has spread from its point of origin. Summary staging has also been called General Staging, California Staging, and SEER Staging. The 2000 version of Summary Stage applies to every anatomic site, including the lymphomas and leukemias. Summary staging uses all information available in the medical record; in other words, it is a combination of the most precise clinical and pathological documentation of the extent of disease.
The manual provided here contains the codes and coding instructions for the summary stage field for cases diagnosed January 1, 2001 and forward. The North American Association of Central Cancer Registries has developed Guidelines for Implementation of SEER Summary Stage 2000.
Alcohol Abuse Prevention: Federal funds constitute a major share of funding for substance abuse prevention. The change in Federal spending on drug prevention (Office of National Drug Control Policy, 2000) has been used to trend spending forward to 1998. As many drug prevention initiatives also address alcohol, this approach probably captures major trends in alcohol abuse prevention.
Alcohol Abuse Research: This estimate represents the budget authorization for the NIAAA from the Federal budget (Office of Management and Budget, 2000) and reflects both real and price changes.
Alcohol Abuse Training: Two factors were used for the update - growth in resident U.S. population (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 2000) and growth in the Consumer Price Index for urban consumers (U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2000).
Lost Future Earnings Due to Premature Deaths: This was estimated separately for alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1999) and for all other alcohol-related deaths (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1999). Adjustments also were made for growth in average earnings of workers using the Bureau of Labor Statistics "hourly compensation index" (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2000).
Lost Productivity Due to Alcohol-Related Illness: This was updated using the growth in resident adult U.S. population (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 2000) and growth in average earnings of workers (hourly compensation index) (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2000).
Lost Productivity of Victims of Alcohol-Related Crime: Separate adjustments were applied to violent crime and property crime. These estimates were adjusted to reflect changes in the total number of violent and property crimes in the United States (U.S. Department of Justice, 1999). Both values were adjusted for growth in the average earnings of workers (hourly compensation index) (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2000). No adjustment was made for a possible change in the causal role of alcohol in crimes.
Lost Productivity of Prisoners: The estimate was adjusted by the change in total census of prisoners (U.S. Department of Justice, 2000) and the change in average earnings (hourly compensation index) (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2000).
Crime - Criminal Justice Expenditures: Separate adjustments were applied to violent crime, property crime, and alcohol-defined crime (e.g., DUI, public drunkenness, liquor law violations). The first two subcategories were adjusted by the changes in the estimated number of these types of crimes committed (U.S. Department of Justice, 1999). The alcohol-defined crime costs were adjusted based on the number of arrests for alcohol-defined offenses. Price adjustment used the Consumer Price Index for urban consumers (U.S. Department of Justice, 2000). 041b061a72
