End of Daylight Saving Time means an extra hour of sleep tonight

Massachusetts panel seeks regional talks on time zone change

We enter the end of Daylight Saving Time during the fall and winter months, and having darkness fall earlier seems to go well with the time and climate. Tonight is the night we turn our clocks back and gain that extra hour of precious sleep.

In a 17-year study involving more than 185,000 patients, researchers from Stanford University found depression rates rose by 11 percent when people set their clocks back in fall. One from 2011 that followed people in IN, (which didn't uniformly observed daylight saving time before 2006) found that energy usage actually increased with daylight saving time. It's recommended to check over any devices that require manual adjustments before you go to bed on Sunday.

1945-1966 - There is no federal law regarding Daylight Saving Time.

PM Modi inaugurates India's first world food fair in New Delhi
This is the first time that India is hosting such an event for the food processing sector. He said that India is one of the fastest growing economies of the world.

In 1986, federal legislation mandated DST begin the first Sunday in April and end the last Sunday in October. States can exempt themselves from participation. However, the 2005 Energy Policy Act moved DST up three weeks earlier and ended it a week later.

Exceptions in the United States: In the United States, Hawaii and most of Arizona do not follow DLS.

Two American states (Arizona and Hawaii) and one Canadian province (Saskatchewan) already have opted out of daylight-saving-time changes, and several USA states are actively considering abandoning the time change, most recently ME and MA. About 70 countries around the world observe DLS. This position rests on the assumption that there are public-safety benefits associated with the increased light during evening hours associated with daylight-saving time.
