Senate passes bill calling study on ending Daylight Saving Time in SC

No fair: Florida is trying to opt out of Daylight Saving Time clock changes

It'll take time to recover from hour of lost sleep

"Many people they go to bed at usual time and they lose an hour of sleep and many different physiological systems are affected by that loss of sleep and the shift of circadian rhythm", he explained. The answer is the date that Daylight Savings Time (DST) will begin for Florida is at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 11, 2018.

Jacoby expects that the permanent Daylight Saving Times will stretch out his dinner hour and lead to him being able to accommodate more customers during the evening rush.

Then when spring time arrives we "spring forward" an hour, and we have to deal with whole new set of problems.

We know it's coming every year, but that doesn't make springing forward any easier.

Consider that the most influential force in putting Daylight Saving Time in place in 1966 was a business lobby, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Some people seem to like DST; others prefer standard time. If you're feeling sleepy, short afternoon naps are recommended for a few days after the time change until the body adjusts. "So, we'd just do away with moving the clocks". Any state can opt out of daylights saving time. Most people say "Daylight Savings Time", but there really is only one. It was officially recognized nationally in the United States in 1966 with the Uniform Time Act.

Daylight saving time is a scam. Daylight saving is a man-made construct and one that's not observed across the world. That bill enacted the first observance of the time change, March 31, 1918.

Florida state lawmakers on Tuesday sent a bill to the governor that would keep the state in perpetual daylight saving time, but Congress would have to amend federal law before it could take effect. Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands all decline for the same reason as Hawaii: The closer you are to the equator, the less seasons impact the length of your day.
