Day Light Saving - “spring forward, fall back”

Daylight saving time (DST)also summer time in several countries, is the practice of advancing clocks so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn.Although not used by most of the world's countries,daylight saving time is common in the Northern Hemisphere's northern latitudes.

      DST observed
     DST formerly observed
      DST not observed.

As modern societies operate on the basis of "standard time" rather than solar time, most people's schedules are not governed by the movements of the earth in relation to the sun. For example, work, school and transport schedules will generally begin at exactly the same time at all times of the year regardless of the position of the sun. However, in non-equatorial regions the total number of hours of sunlight in a day will vary a great deal between autumn/winter and spring/summer. As a result, if "standard time" is applied year round, a significant portion of the longer sunlight hours will fall in the early morning while there may still be a significant period of darkness in the evening. Because many people will tend to sleep in the early morning hours, these hours of sunlight are "wasted" for them, whereas if they are shifted to the evening via DST, they can then be "used". People could simply wake up earlier to take advantage of the sunlight then, but this is impractical because of the inflexibility of clock-based schedules.
As days shorten again in autumn/winter, sunrises get later and later, meaning that people could then be waking up and spending a significant portion of their mornings in the dark, so clocks are then returned to the "standard" time.


In a typical case where a one-hour shift occurs at 02:00 local time, in spring the clock jumps forward from the last moment of 01:59 standard time to 03:00 DST and that day has 23 hours, whereas in autumn the clock jumps backward from the last moment of 02:59 DST to 02:00 standard time, repeating that hour, and that day has 25 hours.
Most of the United States sets Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the first Sunday in November. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.
In the European Union, Summer Time sets and ends at 1:00 a.m. Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). It sets the last Sunday in March and ends the last Sunday in October. In the EU, all time zones change at the same moment.
So now daily in Summer when clock will show 8 its actually 7 (according to Std time) and this way that 1 hr light will be utilized. and from starting of winter clock again will be back to std. time.

Enjoy the DST Timing shifts in Non-Observing Countries
Get your cellphone.
Change its timezone to any state that observe DST,say Newyork state of US.
Now set date manually from your settings->Set Date/Time.
Now observe the difference between time from November to March and March to November.
Time from November to March is standard time i.e. GMT-5 while time from March to November is one hour ahead from standard time.
I am afraid, It works on some phones… :) 

Why observe DST?
Many countries observe DST, and many do not. Many countries use DST to make better use of the daylight in the evenings. The extra hour of daylight in the evening is said to give children more social time and can boost the tourism industry because it increases the amount of outdoor activies.
DST is also used to save energy and reduce artificial light needed during the evening hours.
DST's clock shifts have the obvious disadvantage of complexity. People must remember to change their clocks. However Software can often adjust computer clocks automatically, but this can be limited and error-prone, particularly when DST protocols are changed.

Do You Know ???

1) Gustave Eiffel, designer of the Eiffel Tower, enjoyed a successful career as an architect despite having dyslexia and a paralyzing fear of heights.

2) Archimedes endured a tragic fate at the hands of drunken Roman soldiers.After forcing him to cut off  and eating his own nose,they boiled him in oil.

3) 128 bit SSL encryption is so strong that it would take much , much longer than the age of universe to crack a message encrypted using it.Even 20 years from now, if computers are a million times faster. it would still take longer than the age of the universe to crack it.

4) If you opened up the case of the original Macintosh, you will find 47 signatures one for each member of Apple's Macintosh  division as of 1982.

5) Bill Gates math SAT score was a perfect 800.

6) Bill Gates home was designed using a MAC.

7) It is possible to see a rainbow as a complete circle from an airplane.

8) The pupil of the eye expands as much as 45 percent when a person looks at something pleasing.

9) It is easier to swim in a sea rather than in a river because the density of sea water is more compared to that of a river due to dissolved salts.

10) If you were to drive a car at 100 kilometres an hour, 24 hours a day then you could reach the sun in about 3 years. 

11) It takes the light from the sun over eight (8) minutes to reach the Earth. That means that if the sun blew up right now, we would have eight more minutes of life before we were affected as well.

12) The World Trade Centre towers were designed to collapse in a pancake-like fashion, instead of simply falling over on their sides, This design feature saved hundreds, perhaps thousands of lives on Sept 11,2001,when they were destroyed by terrorists.

13)Radio waves travel so much faster than sound waves that a broadcast can be heard sooner 18000 km away than in the back of the room in which it originated.

14) A chip of silicon a quarter-inch square has the capacity of the original 1949 ENIAC computer, which occupied a city block.

15)Sound travels 15 times faster through steel than through the air.

16)As much as 80% of microwaves from mobile phones are absorbed by your head.
