That means, an extra hour of sleep, right?
Before hitting the sack Saturday night, residents should keep in mind to set their clocks back an hour, as Daylight Savings Time comes to an end - giving us all an extra hour of sleep.
Additionally, remember this: daylight saving time in the fall, means people will be spending more of their waking hours in the dark. By now you must be exhausted of the water cooler questions of "when do we change the clocks" for Daylight Saving Time? After the start of winter, our amount of daylight will slowly increase heading into January.
The American Red Cross also recommends that you take this time to check your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector, as recommended by Neela Mukherjee Lockel, the CEO of the American Red Cross on Long Island. We will stay on Eastern Standard Time until March 12, 2017.
So... why it Daylight Saving Time and why does it exist?
Daylight Saving Time starts on Sunday November 6th at 2AM for users who are in a location where Daylight Saving is observed.
In 2016, DST began at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 13, and ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6, in the United States and Canada.Читайте также: Ronaldo caps 'dream year' after Madrid contract extension
The complicated nature of this led to daylight saving time being reinstated by President Franklin Roosevelt during World War II under the name "War Time".
The time change is not universally recognized in the United States and its territories.
The idea was first advocated seriously by London builder William Willett (1857-1915) in the pamphlet, "Waste of Daylight" (1907), that proposed advancing clocks 20 minutes on each of four Sundays in April, and retarding them by the same amount on four Sundays in September.
Despite the laws setting national standards, states can exempt themselves from DST under certain circumstances.
In recent years, the duration of DST was extended to save energy nationwide. Sorry, Energy Policy Act of 2005, I'm leaving it because I and most Americans say and search it with the "s". Parts of IN used to do the same until the state passed a law IN 2006 that made all counties IN the state observe Daylight Savings Time.
Although 78 countries around the world observe DST, it is not in use in the industrialized nations of Russia, China, India and Japan.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
