How to Fend Off Daylight Saving Time Fatigue

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

Sunday, Northeast Ohioans will lose an hour of sleep as we spring the clocks an hour forward. It wasn't instituted until World War I, when it went into effect to save energy used for lights.

Some states want daylight saving to die - while others want it to stick around.

We got back to standard time on November 5.

Her unborn child reportedly survived, and the actress was in stable condition at New York Methodist Hospital as of Tuesday. This loss of life is tragic, painful for all of us, particularly those of us who are parents".

Other than Hawaii and Arizona, a handful of USA territories - including American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands - do not observe daylight saving time.

Some states thought of another way: ME thought up a little workaround to federal approval: Lawmakers there passed bills to simply move into a whole new time zone (Atlantic Standard Time) and then opt out of DST, which states can choose to do. Florida needs permission from Congress to secede from the union of time-shifters. 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. The Navajo Reservation in Arizona, though, does observe the time change. Czeisler said that heart attack risk goes up 5 percent and motor vehicle crashes go up 17 percent immediately after Daylight Saving Time starts.

USA law was amended in 1986 and then again in 2007, adjusting daylight savings time from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November.

German SPD votes in favor of 'grand coalition' with Merkel
The SPD treasurer, Dietmar Nietan (left), and temporary party leader, Olaf Scholz, announce the results of the poll in Berlin . Under a "yes" vote, Merkel would likely be re-elected chancellor by the Bundestag, or lower house of parliament, on March 14.

Hawaii and most of Arizona don't take part in DST. They wonder why we change the time at all.

There's one thing most Florida lawmakers can agree on: daylight. They also said disrupting sleep patterns with a time change can cause problems such as tardiness, fatigue, decreased motivation and decreased alertness.

The idea of changing clocks dates well before 1942 when the United States started it. Benjamin Franklin is often given the honor of "inventing" it, but he only had the idea of changing sleep schedules...not moving clocks.
