TOM PURCELL: Clock change is conspiracy by 'morning people' and Big Coffee

  • Time changes Sunday morning

But, the Times notes, that is outside the state's authority - the federal government controls time zones, and while states can choose to exempt themselves from daylight saving time, they cannot exempt themselves from standard time.

Just as it has for the past 100 years, Daylight Saving Time is set to begin on Sunday, jumping the clock ahead by an hour and causing many people to feel sluggish and exhausted for a day or two.

"I know it's not very satisfying to say a bill passed but nothing is going to happen tomorrow", Yates said. "Think of it as bonding time". We're with him on no more twice-yearly time changes but less persuaded that New Mexico should leave the Mountain time zone. If the clock changed at noon, it would mess up everyone's schedule for the day.

Since the introduction of modern daylight-saving time as an emergency measure during the 20th century's two world wars, many countries have been adjusting the clock one hour ahead in spring and winding it back by one hour during fall.

But it's not out of the question. It says if Congress amends US code to allow states to observe year-round daylight saving time it is the "intent of the legislature that daylight saving time shall be the year-round standard time of the entire state".

Daylight-saving time returns this Sunday. To squelch Daylight Saving Time would limit the hours he could ride his motorcycle in the summer. During the 1970s energy crisis, President Richard Nixon signed an act implementing daylight time starting in January 1974 for a period of almost two years.

Daylight Saving Time starts on Sunday, March 11 at 2:00 a.m.

A time zone change requires either an act of Congress or a regulatory action from the Department of Transportation. But youth sports leagues and families anxious that a year-round early sunset would shut down their kids' after-school games. World War II Britain outdid its allies by adopting "double summer time", setting clocks two hours forward, putting London temporarily in the odd position of being one hour later than Paris, creating what must have been a monumental headache for D-Day planners.

Just to point to one example: Research points to an increase in traffic accidents in the days after the March switch, as sleep-deprived drivers hit the road.

Daylight saving time ends November 4. She writes on Times-Mail, "Exposure to natural light first thing in the morning will help to reset his internal clock more quickly (and yours, too)".

Studies assessing energy savings have produced mixed results, and mostly have looked at extensions of Daylight Saving Time rather than year round standard or daylight time. No switching time twice a year. In other words, stopping with the back-and-forth of time change.

He continued, "Get the kids to help you. The cow doesn't read the clock'". Some places, like Boston and Chicago, would see sunrise closer to the 4 o'clock hour - long before most people wake up in the morning. Writing for Today's Parent, sleep consultant Alanna McGinn advises parents to use blackout curtains to "make bedtime nice and dark".
