Standard Time

November 6, 2016

Standard Time

Hope you enjoyed your extra hour of sleep last night (in Europe, make that “last week“). America has now moved from “Daylight Saving Time” to “Standard Time,” except in Arizona, which stays in Standard Time all year long. We’ve made fun of this in the past, pointing out that Arizona also doesn’t believe in Climate ChangeWater FluoridationInternational Law, or Evolution, either. But wait:

“The fall transition to standard time is linked to an increase in crime that costs the country billions of dollars annually. Transitions into and out of daylight saving time are linked to disrupted sleep patterns, increased heart attack risk, and an uptick in fatal car accidents.

And last week, a team of researchers from the departments of psychiatry and political science at the universities of Aarhus, Copenhagen and Stanford added another formal complaint to the indictment against clock-turning: The autumn shift to standard time appears to be closely linked to a jump in depression diagnoses around this time of year.”

— “Turning back the clock 1 hour takes a serious toll on your mental health,” Christopher Ingraham, Washington Post

More:

“For the last time, daylight saving time isn’t worth the trouble it causes,” Laura Grant, Quartz

Gender Pay Gap To Be Closed in Only 170 Years

Gender Pay Gap To Be Closed in Only 170 Years

Women are expected to earn as much as men as early as January 2196, reports the World Economic Forum. WEF is the organization behind that annual gathering of radical populists at Davos.

The global gender pay gap has widened since 2015, when it was expected to close in 118 years. The United States has fallen in the rankings in the past year, from 23rd to 45th place in gender wage equality.
