Daylight Savings 2018: When Does the Time Change?

The dark side of daylight saving time: Oregon researcher says beware of 'Sleepy Monday'

For instance, a group of psychologists found that JUDGES were more likely to give harsher sentences after losing an hour of sleep.

What is clear, is nothing will change in the short term.

By the way, clocks change at 2 a.m. Sunday for most of the country except Hawaii and Arizona, which means one less hour of sleep Saturday night, but a much brighter Sunday evening.

In the US, it lasts from 2 a.m. on the second Sunday in March until 2 a.m. the first Sunday of November.

By overwhelming, bipartisan majorities, the normally fractious Senate and House agreed this week to make Florida the first in the nation to adopt year-round daylight saving time statewide.

I know, right? I don't get this. Experts said that it's hard to get a comparison of DST versus no DST because countries either wholly adopt it or don't, and every country uses a different amount of energy.

"When we change the time by one hour, it throws a monkey wrench into our circadian process", said Christopher Barnes, an associate professor of management at the University of Washington who researches the impact of sleep deprivation, especially in the workplace. A state cannot "permanently" stay on DST under current federal law, the DOT said. If possible, in the nights prior, go to bed 15-30 minutes earlier.

The website states following the 1973 oil embargo, the U.S. Congress extended the DST period to 10 months in 1974 and eight months in 1975, in an effort to save energy.

Similar variations were filed during previous legislative sessions, but went no where. The House passed it on February 14. Neither returned phone calls or emails for comment.

Gaff, a physician in northeast in, like many other people, believes that changing the time on our clocks twice a year "is one of the stupidest things our government has done". Using a database of mining injuries from the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, we discovered that the spring shift to daylight saving time resulted in a 6 percent increase in mining injuries and a 67 percent increase in workdays lost because of these injuries.

"I think it's a question of whether the federal government will approve having essentially a 5th continental time zone", Downing said.

Daylight Saving Time is one of those weird quirks of the Western world - most countries outside Europe and North America don't take part. "If the clocks are adjusted and you sense that your children are fussy, cranky, and just not happy, try to involve them in coping strategies", she said.

Glenn Jergensen, executive director of Palm Beach County's Tourist Development Council, said the ramifications of the potential change haven't been considered yet by the council.

This is where it's useful to look at sunrise and sunset times over the course of a year if we ended DST.

Daylight Saving Time was invented - by none other than Benjamin Franklin - to make the best use of daylight hours.

These studies are only the tip of the iceberg, with adverse outcome of the time change ranging from student test scores to stock market returns. States can exempt themselves from participation. "It's important to me". It went into effect in 2007.

In a way, the negative trends associated with the clock-change are a large-scale illustration of how bad for us it can be to lose even an hour of sleep. There is no such thing as darkness - scientifically "dark" is actually "lack of light".

DST starts at 2 a.m. because that was when the fewest trains were running, so there wouldn't be as much disruption. Another hour for tailgating, but a later home arrival after the game. Rep. Rick Tillis, R-Lewisburg, asked the entire state become Eastern Standard Time year round. Saskatchewan, a province in Canada, also does not practice DST.
