Just a simple question for those with the Austrailian scenery. Does YBAS Alice Springs blend well with Austrialia V2? I assume it certainly does with Austrialia V1 but V2 is much newer than YBAS.

 

Thanks

I don't want to nit pick, but actually the new decade only starts 2021. Since the first decade lasted from year 1 - 10 AD,  the next one 11 - 20 and so on, then 2001 - 2010, the current one is 2011 - 2020. So 2020 will be the last year of the current decade.

 

Anyway, Happy New Year, guys! :)

Hello,

I enjoy comments like yours.

I researched it a little and it turns out that opinion is divided and that there is no official fixed or agreed definition,

except that everyone agrees that a decade is a period of ten years.

 

Regardless of your opinion or mine, here in the UK, the press are busy publishing lists of what happened in the

last decade, on the basis that it ends today.

 

Logic would suggest that as a decade is a period of ten years, it should be counted from the first day of the first year.

Starting from midnight on 1st January 2000, ten consecutive periods of one year would end at midnight on 31st

December 2019.

The system you propose, ignores the year 00 and starts counting from midnight on the first day of year 01.

Either way, the elapsed time is ten years and a decade has passed.

Therein lies the debate.

You can see how it blends at the end of this post:

Nick, the year 0 neither belongs to BC nor to AD, it is in between. Of course the media celebrates 2020 as first year of the new decade, because they also celebrated 2000 as the beginning of the new millenium, which was also wrong. Where I live, many historians pointed this out but have been ignored.

I suppose it is the same question as "is the series of the first ten positive whole numbers 0 to 9 or 1 to 10?"

The answer is of course, they are both a series of 10 numbers.

The only difference is whether 0 is seen as a number or as an empty space.

The date you are born is 0 from then on you are in your 1st year until you reach the age of 1, exactly a year later.

Then into your 2nd year, and so on.

This is the 21st century, a Happy New Year 2020, to all :)

Thanks for the picture story Gerold. I note the fuzzy runway and lights issue at YBAS with V2.

 

It's now the new year in Australia and thoughts are with the Australian people suffering with the bush fires.

All I know is that the decades get shorter as I get older................

 

---- and at 85 - "decade" ----  takes on another meaning 

 

Happy New Year - also takes on another meaning:D

Coincidentally I had the same discussion (not started by myself B)) with friends last night at a New Year's Eve party. There I have learned, that there is actually no year 0. The year before Christ's birth is called 1 BC and the immediatelly following year (the year Christ was born) is the year 1 AD. So no year 0. This is confirmed by Wikipedia.

 

Happy New Year everybody!:)
