Don't be the one who forgets to spring forward Sunday

Don't be the one who forgets to spring forward Sunday

It's nearly time to lose an hour of our lives that we'll never get back.

Manitobans will be putting their clocks ahead one hour this weekend with daylight saving time set to begin in the province.

Unless, you're a farmer from 1908, chances are you don't have much use for daylight savings time. Czeisler points out reducing time in front of the TV, computer or smartphone will help restless sleepers get extra shut-eye before losing an hour. They wonder why we change the time at all. If you're feeling sleepy, short afternoon naps are recommended for a few days after the time change until the body adjusts.

Senator Steube told the Senate Community Affairs Committee, "One of the barbers had young children and it had such a negative impact every time they set their clocks back [that they had trouble] getting their kids up for school", the Miami Herald reported. "So, we'd just do away with moving the clocks".

Ancient agrarian civilizations used a form of daylight saving time, adjusting their timekeeping depending on the sun's activity.

Was it a good move? Customers react to gun sale changes
We note that the Dick's Sporting Goods announcement acknowledges the vast majority of gun owners are responsible and law-abiding. It actually stands for "ArmaLite rifle", named for the company that developed it.

This means that we lose (not gain) an hour when we turn our clocks ahead an hour to 3:00 a.m. when our clocks reach 2:00 a.m. on Sunday.

"We have a circadian rhythm [that] is coinciding with the time we eat", he explained.

Benjamin Franklin did not propose Daylight Saving Time. That bill enacted the first observance of the time change, March 31, 1918.

If approved, Florida would join two other states in opting out of time changes. State legislators appear ready to abandon standard time during the winter months in favor of year-round daylight saving time. Harvey Peeler of Cherokee County, calls for the state to "conduct a study concerning the feasibility and the economic and other consequences of the State of SC exempting itself from the provisions of Daylight Saving Time as permitted by federal law".
