Sleep Expert Explains How To Beat Daylight Saving Time To Punch

But no matter what the time change tells you, Daylight Saving Time is implemented for a reason. Many other countries would follow suit during World War I, including the United States in 1918.

"In addition to saving energy more daylight is a big benefit for tourism", he said. In Portland, sunrise will shift from 6:30 a.m. Saturday to 7:28 a.m. Sunday, while sunset will change from 6:11 p.m.to 7:13 p.m. While most, if not all, Texans probably wouldn't mind foregoing the bi-annual adjustment of every household clock, many prefer the extra sunlight that DST affords. Saskatchewan is technically an hour ahead year-round and does not change their clocks; other communities, like the northeast Ontario town Atikokan, still do not use Daylight Saving Time despite heavy debate on the topic.

Arizona, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands don't observe Daylight Saving Time.

Some states have tried to get rid of daylight saving time but haven't been successful.

Written by Melody Nowowiejski - The idea of Daylight Saving Time is often attributed to Benjamin Franklin and its objective generally believed to be based in the agricultural nature of our nation for much of our history. As the sun creeps up over the horizon earlier and earlier in the day, we end up with lots of sun in the early morning hours when much of the population is still asleep.

Dear Christians, what favourite thing are you giving up for Lent?
Pancake Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, is often a day of eating up ahead of the period of fasting. Traditionally Lent was a time of fasting and prayer. "We can not even imagine how much God loves us".

A University of British Columbia study found a one-hour loss of sleep during the transition to Daylight Saving Time increases the risk of a crash by five to seven per cent.

More afternoon daylight meant more time for shopping. By adjusting the clocks, we are disrupting that pattern because we may stay up until 10 o'clock at night, but [during DST] 10 p.m.is 11 p.m. and we aren't exhausted yet.

The second Sunday of March is designated as the start of Daylight Saving Time by the Energy Policy Act.

It's a practice that has been around in some form for 100 years, and by simply moving the clock ahead one hour on March 12, the public will have more daylight and can conserve on energy.
