Time isn't on your side with coming shift to daylight saving

Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Wednesday reintroduced a bill to make daylight saving time a year-round reality across the country, with no more biannual time changes.

After clocks spring ahead one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday, try to avoid driving during rush hours and in early morning, when crash risk increases, he suggested.

"As we get ready to change our clocks and lose one hour of sleep on Sunday, we must be tired of the negative health effects of this practice", Chu said in a statement Friday.

Daylight saving time wasn't introduced until Germany implemented it during World War I. The Germans thought having more daylight hours would help conserve energy.

Saskatchewan remains the only province to say "No" to daylight saving time, though others have considered the idea.

In November, California voters passed a ballot measure to permit the state Legislature to establish daylight saving time year-round if federal law changes.

- US territories: None of America's island territories observe the time change.

Despite the allegations against the 52-year-old, both women live with Kelly in Chicago and consider themselves his girlfriends. She went on to accuse her parents of pressuring her to document a sexual relationship with Kelly to "use it against him".

No time change is observed in Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas. Health experts say there can also be some more serious consequences.

That would put Alaska two hours off of Seattle time for most of the year. Hawaii and Arizona ignore DST, since it makes less sense to shift the clocks when you live near the equator, where the sun rises and sets at roughly the same time every day.

In addition to the two states that don't take part in Daylight Saving Time, a handful of USA territories have chosen to end observing the standard.

Watson went on to note that Daylight Saving's functional usefulness is very much a thing of the past. Doctors see the opposite trend in the fall: The day after we turn back the clocks, heart attack visits drop 21% as people enjoy a little extra pillow time.

The study found positive effects in a number of industries but didn't go so far as to recommend making the change.

"What we're talking about is doing away with the fall back component, so we would stay in Daylight Saving Time year round", Sen. The bright light will help set your internal clock, which regulates sleep and alertness. "Reflecting the will of the state of Florida, I'm proud to reintroduce this bill to also make daylight saving time permanent nationally".
