It's Time To Turn Back The Clocks

  • Tourneau changes more than 100,000 watches for Daylight Saving Time

Anything device you own that you manually set the time on though will need to be changed once daylight saving ends. By comparison, The Denver Post noted research showing about 5 percent fewer heart attacks reported in America the Monday morning after clocks fall back. While this means an extra hour of sleep, it also means that sunrise and sunset will occur an hour earlier starting with Sunday.

March 19, 1918 - The Standard Time Act establishes time zones and daylight saving.

The government-forced mandate has come under scrutiny recently with a bill being introduced in the Michigan House that would exempt the state form Daylight Saving Time.

Depression rates declined after about 10 weeks; researchers said that's because sunlight impacts the brain, and those studied were exposed to more sunlight at that point.

Jahlil Okafor could join Celtics if bought out by 76ers
His tenure with the 76ers has soured after an impressive rookie season in which he averaged 17.5 points and seven rebounds. The Toronto Raptors are a team with whom the Sixers had trade talks involving Okafor , but that deal did not materialize.


In 1986, federal legislation mandated DST begin the first Sunday in April and end the last Sunday in October.

This tradition of springing forward and falling back is in place for most of the US, with the exception of several places, including Hawaii and most of Arizona.

The US territories of Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and American Samoa also do not observe DLS.

But some people may argue that Daylight Saving Time is necessary and makes sense.

Some countries refer to "Daylight Saving Time" as "Summer Time".
