Daylight Saving Time 2011
October 30, 2011 by staff
That’s the day, Sunday, November 6, 2011, when you have to adjust your clock forward – not backward – one hour. (Remember, a week from now.)
This fact was not lost on many, and results in people like this blogger, forgetting to adjust their watches.
Fortunately, we have smart phones to do that for us. And if you’re like this blogger, you use your smart phone, in this case an Apple iPhone as your watch. (It’s a more complicated physical process, reaching for the iPhone against twisting and looking at the wrist, but does the job.)
But even so, what confuses many is the time it is about what to do, and when they wake. That time apart just feels different and takes a week to adjust.
So with all this without problems, the question is, what should we do this? Many say it helps to save energy, and that started in the world of Wari to save fuel by reducing the need for artificial light.
But others say it is unnecessary to make the Daylight Savings Time at all.
My opinion is, given the way we work in an Internet age, I’m not sure DST is the great saving of energy was at a time before the information age.
In addition, this section provides another reason not to, at least in the way we are used:
The Uniform Time Act of 1966 provided the basis to toggle between DST and standard time, what we see now in the United States. But Congress can not seem to resist tinkering with it. For example, in 1973 daylight saving time was observed throughout the year, instead of spring and summer. The current system of daylight saving time at 2 am on the first Sunday in April and ending it at 2 am on the last Sunday in October was not standardized until 1986.
Therefore, this is run by the government. That means we can choose to stop all together. But until you do, remember that the November 6, clocks go forward one hour.
Oh, I mean back. Look, I’m very confused!
What a pain.
