Don't lose any sleep over daylight saving time

Do we need Daylight Savings Time in the Sunshine State?

The good news is that the extra sleep makes streets about 8% safer on the day after the fall change, according to that study.

2008 study from the Department of Energy examined the impact that the time change has on our life.

Efforts to kill off daylight saving time are almost as old as the time shift itself, and even today, some are trying to get it repealed.

If you have an appointment on Sunday or Monday, you might want to touch base with the person you are meeting and double check that the meeting time still works and the person knows about the time change. In Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, there is no daylight saving time because their locations are close to the equator and warm climates provide little change in sunlight throughout the year. There are also some parts of IN that don't follow along either. A 2006 study found electricity savings from the time system to be "relatively small", recording savings of 1 TeraWatt-hour, or an estimated "7 to 26 Trillion Btu (TBtu), or 0.01 percent to 0.03 percent of total annual United States energy consumption". It originally was called "Fast Time". He put it in place to prevent valuable hours of light in the summer time from being wasted by people. "Having daylight saving makes the light more practical, so you don't have to wake with the chickens".

Walking to your vehicle when it's dark out, there are more places for criminals to hide unseen.

How do you say it properly?

Saving or savings?: "Daylight saving time" is correct; "daylight savings time" is incorrect.

Yes. At last count, there were 78 countries setting their clocks back and ahead.
