Is there a Day Light Time Savings in 2010? by Q: I have not seen any postings or reminders. I checked my yahoo calender and there is nothing stating that we should fix our clocks one hour ahead or behind? Anyone wondering the same thing? Who determines these things?

A: Daylight savings time ends next week, Sunday, November 7th. You should move all your clocks back one hour (from 2am to 1am is the official switch) at that time.

Are we in day light savings time? by mmmia =] Q: Everyone i ask can't remember or figure it out. I know next month we move our clocks forward but what does that mean?

A: If you are moving your clock forward, that matches the saying "spring forward and fall back." This means that you are in the northern hemisphere and that you are not currently on daylight saving time. It also means that you will be once you are supposed to change your clock next month. If you are in the US, then daylight saving time will start at 2:00 am on March 8. (Note this date is the second Sunday of March, which is the current rule for determining when to start daylight saving time in the US). If you're in the UK (or most any country in Europe), then daylight saving time will start for you at March 29th at 1:00 am. Note that not all countries even observe daylight saving time, and of those that do, the exact date as well as the time that the clocks are moved forward are different. The same thing applies to when daylight saving time ends in different countries. Note that if you were in the southern hemisphere, daylight saving time would be during the opposite time of the year that what you are use to in the northern hemisphere.

Should we continue to practice Day-Light Savings Time? by Q: Is the Clock a Lie? What is Time?

A: standard time is the prime example of socialism at work. a person should set their own clock why do we need social engineering by the government to mandate the time.

why do we have day light savings time today? by Lizzy M Q: why DO we have daylight savings time? for me it just messes up my timing for about a week!!!

A: we have it, b/c in the past it was an effort to save energy. But, a recent study showed that in fact americans spend much more $ on energy than during the regular time. We need to go back to letting nature handle the time, we would still have lighter evening and darker mornings. There are a few states that don't change time.

A: i dunno bu ti correted it last night...

Whats the point in day light savings time? by Rob_Schneider_Is_A_Stapler! Q: What's with gaining and losing an hour?

A: Daylight saving time (DST)—also summer time in British English and European official terminology respectively (see Terminology)—is the practice of temporarily advancing clocks during the summertime so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn. Modern DST was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson. Many countries have used it since then; details vary by location and change occasionally. The practice has been criticized. Adding daylight to afternoons benefits retailing, sports, and other activities that exploit sunlight after working hours, but causes problems for farming, evening entertainment and other occupations tied to the sun. Its effect on health and crime is less clear. Although an early goal of DST was to reduce evening usage of incandescent lighting, formerly a primary use of electricity, modern heating and cooling usage patterns differ greatly, and research about how DST currently affects energy use is limited or contradictory. DST clock shifts present other challenges. They complicate timekeeping, and can disrupt meetings, travel, billing, record keeping, medical devices, heavy equipment, and sleep patterns. Software can often adjust computer clocks automatically, but this can be limited and error-prone, particularly when DST protocols are changed. Also, if we didn't gain and lose a hour, for about 30 years (or something like that) right now would probably be around the time of midnight, or 6:00Am in the morning. So yeah, the time would be retarted if we didn't do that..

Is it day light savings time now? by snitches get stiches Q: What time do you have? What region do you live in? I found a web site that said it started the 14th of March.However, the local tv stations still say the same time.

Day Light Savings Time Question? by Michele L Q: I know that for day light savings time you turn the clocks ahead in the spring and back in the fall, but do we gain an hour of sleep during the fall or lose it? And does anyone know a way to remember it?

A: When you wake up on Sunday morning set your clock back an hour. So if you wake up at 10:00 you could set the clock back to 9:00. Spring forward.....fall back, so you set the clock back 1 hour. So yes you gain an hour of sleep :-)

When does Day Light Savings time start? by Captgoody Q:

A: Daylight Saving Time begins each year at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of April. Move clocks ahead one hour at the start of Daylight Saving Time.

Do they have day light savings time in Alaska? by Q: In Alaska In winter they have 3 or 4 months where the sun does not break the horizon. And in summer it is also 3 or 4 months where the sun does not go under the horizon. It would not make much of a difference to change the clock like we do in spring and fall.

A: adding information to the above answer (which is correct) Alaska is HUGE: http://www.tongass-seis.net/media/tong_USA.html there are only parts of the state that have the extreme day and night effect, these chartsashows average hours of daylight for different parts of the state. http://www.alaska.com/about/weather/story/1920.html http://www.absak.com/library/average-annual-insolation-alaska

A: Daylight Savings Time isn't a law, and the decision to either be on it or not falls under States Rights in the Constitution.

when is day light savings time for indiana? by live*laugh*ask someone to explain the joke* Q: sorry, i think this is in the wrong category, but i thought you sciency smart people would definitely know this!

What is the point in day light savings time? by DHD Q: it screws everything up! i know Benjamin franklin made it ...and i know it was for the war...BUT - Why the heck do we still need it?

A: It's not Daylight Savings Time, it's Golf-hour Saving Time. As long as the lawmakers in your state are motivated more by how many holes of golf they can fit in an afternoon, you will be forced to participate in the stupidity of setting your clock to a different time twice a year. Studies have shown that any benefit at one end of the year are cancelled at the other end, or are completely counterproductive. Traffic accidents jump 8 percent on the Monday following the change in time to Daylights Savings Time. The main reason we don't do it year-round is because when we tried that in 1973 there was a tramatic increase in the accident rate involving school buses/children. It threatens health, it causes confusion and expense. It's needless, inane, and dumb. If somebody wants to get off early and play a round of golf after work, he needs to go to work an hour early and not trouble the rest af the world about it.

A: Your body won't recognize the hour change, or even if it was a couple hours so no worries! Take it at the usual time (even if that means it's technically an hour early) and you'll be perfectly fine!

When does this years day light savings time change and what happens? by Q: Hello, i want to know when the clocks change which is soon, what date is it in the UK. Also do clocks go forward or backwards an hour? Thanks

A: .....In the U.K. daylight saving time ends on the last Sunday in October, which this year is this coming Sunday, October 31st at 1 a.m. You turn the clock back one hour.

How do you feel about Day Light Savings Time? by Sunshinelife Q: Would you personally be better off if we just left the time alone instead of changing it twice a year? Why do you agree or disagree with DST?

A: Where I live in Alaska, it really doesn't get dark in the summer so it's kind of pointless here, but I wish we could have an extra hour of sunlight in the evening in the winter because it gets dark here at about 3:30pm in December. I wish we could stay all year with Daylight Savings.

LG Encore not working for day light savings time? by Brittany Q: My Lg Encore is set automatically to update on daylight savings time. ... I just got this phone, all of my other cell phones automatically updated. I was wondering if this happened to anyone's encore besides mine? If so, is there a way to fix it because that's how I determine that it is daylight savings, by my cell phone changing.

A: I don't know the answer for you, but I'd recommend calling the cellphone provider you have (i.e. AT&T) and talk to their technical support people. They can often explain or provide a fix for problems like that. Often times it's just an update to the cellphone's firmware to fix problems like that, that they can walk you through.

Is Microsoft pushing out updates for the day light savings time issue? by treky1999 Q: Is Microsoft pushing out updates for the day light savings time issue? Beginning in 2007, daylight saving time (DST) will be extended in the United States. DST will start on March 11, 2007, which is three weeks earlier than usual, and it will end on November 4, 2007, which is one week later than usual. This results in a new DST period that is four weeks longer than in previous years. Unless certain updates are applied to your computer, the time zone settings for your computer's system clock may be incorrect during this four-week period. In particular, you must make sure that both your Windows operating system and your calendar programs are updated. I am getting tons of update related calls for computer issues; It is causing issue with loading the XP page. What are the fixes?

A: This should be your answer right here. This site I listed below will give you a patch or a program to run that will fix your time permanently for the new DST times so you won't have to mess with them ever again unless for some dumb reason they decide to go and change DST all over again, but I kinda doubt it. Anyway go to this site select home user, then select your operating system and then follow instructions. If running XP and you have AUTOMATIC UPDATES turned on the you should already be fixed and not have to mess with your time cause it installs the patch you need for the fix back in February. If it's not fixed then use the link below it fixed both my XP and 2000 computers and it's even a Microsoft site. To find out your version of Windows right-click on My Computer and go to Properties and your version will be listed there. If your running 2000 then you will have to run the program from this site below to fix the problem. And trust me it does work!!!

Day light savings time when Nixon was in office? by Thumbs ^ Up Q: Does anyone remember if Nixon made day light savings time mandatory back in the 70's? I am trying to remember if it was put through by him for about 2 years. That meant no switching our clocks ahead or back an hour. Serious answers only, please.

A: Yes, I remember that after the 1973 OPEC oil embargo we had year round DST. I remember a lot of parents being worried that all the kids had to walk to school in the dark. Seriously, I don't see how it saves any energy. You just turn your lights on an hour earlier than usual. At work, we usually have as many lights on whether it is light or dark out.

Why doesn't Arizona recognize Day light savings time? by msprissysmom Q: Are there any other states that don't recognize day light savings time?

I have a question about twins and day light savings time? by ollitepac02 Q: If a mother is giving birth to twins on day light savings in the fall, and the first twin is born at 1:58 A.M., and the second twin is born 3 minutes later, at 1:01 A.M., due to the time change, who is older? This is not a riddle, just wanted to know people's opinions on it, kind of boggles my mind a little, haha.

A: Einstein said time is relative, but it's obvious that the twin born at 1:58 daylight time is older than that born at 1:01 standard time. You can write a letter to your state's Bureau of Vital Statistics requesting that both infant's birth certificates are recorded in standard time. Explain your reason clearly in the letter.

A: i dunno but we hav the same name!!!! make me the best answer!!

What is the point of Day Light savings time? by Bubba Q: I really hate Day Light savings time. We have to get up earlier with not that mush more sleep, we have to reset our clocks, it throws people of sleeping schedule, it does not save any energy, etc. And yet everybody uses it anyway, what is the point of it!?!?

A: first, it does save energy. really. The idea is to maximize daylight when people are active. that's from morning until after dark. if it gets dark later, fewer lights are turned on. relatively few people get up early enough to have to turn lights on in the morning. it's beneficial to switch the day so there's more light later, rather than earlier. I've read that it was Ben Franklin's idea. although at that time, they were saving candles, not electricity. and candles are relatively more expensive. Edit: <> WOW. I always thought that in the winter it was dark when we got up and went to bed because the days were shorter. I had no idea that daylight savings time was the real culprit. Sure glad I participated in this question. Also, it would appear that thumbs up/down are more an indication of whether the thumber likes or dislikes DST, as opposed to an indication of how informative the answer was.
