standard time 2012

In Ireland, the Standard Time Act 1968 legally established that the time for general purposes in the State (to be known as standard time) shall be one hour in advance of Greenwich mean time throughout the year.[2] This act was amended by the Standard Time (Amendment) Act 1971, which legally established Greenwich Mean Time as a winter time period.[1] Ireland operates an hour behind standard time during the winter period, and reverts to standard time in the summer months.
This avoided having different times on either side of the border with Northern Ireland.[3][10] Summer time (daylight saving time) was provided on a one-off basis by acts in 1923 and 1924,[11][12] and then on an ongoing basis by the Summer Time Act, 1925.[13] The 1925 act provided a default summer time period, which could be varied by ministerial order.
From 1968 standard time (GMT+1) was observed all year round, with no winter time change.[2] This was an experiment in the run-up to Ireland’s 1973 accession to the EEC, and was undone in 1971.[1] In those years, time in Ireland was the same as in the six EEC countries, except in the summer in Italy, which switched to Central European Summer Time (CEST).
Closing time in Irish public houses is half an hour later during summer time (11:30pm instead of 11:00pm).[22] Between 1933 and 1961, lighting-up time was an hour before/after sunrise/sunset in summer-time, as opposed to half-an-hour in winter time.[23] Since 1961, it has been half-an-hour in all cases.

Now, Western Australia uses Western Standard Time; South Australia and the Northern Territory use Central Standard Time; while New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria, and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) use Eastern Standard Time.
Australia uses three main time zones, Australian Western Standard Time (AWST; UTC+08:00), Australian Central Standard Time (ACST; UTC+09:30), and Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST; UTC+10:00).[1] Time is regulated by the individual state governments,[2] some of which observe daylight saving time (DST).
Unlike the rest of New South Wales, Broken Hill (and the surrounding region) observes Australian Central Standard Time (UTC+9:30) a time zone it shares with South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Since 1899, the only major changes in Australian time zones has been the adoption of Central Standard Time in Broken Hill, New South Wales, and the setting of clocks to one-half hour earlier than Eastern time (GMT plus 10:30) on the territory of Lord Howe Island.
In December 2008, the Daylight Saving for South East Queensland (DS4SEQ) political Party was officially registered, to advocate for the use of a two-time-zone system for DST in Queensland, with most the State (in land area) using standard time.
A compromise between Western and Central time (UTC+8:45, without DST), unofficially known as Central Western Standard Time, is used in one area in the southeastern corner of Western Australia and one roadhouse in South Australia.

In the United States Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 a.m. local time on the second Sunday in March.
Since 1986 the United States had observed Daylight Saving Time from the first Sunday in April through the last Sunday in October.
On the first Sunday in November areas on Daylight Saving Time return to Standard Time at 2:00 a.m. When Daylight Saving Time begins turn your clocks ahead one hour.
The provisions of the bill call for Daylight Saving Time to begin three weeks earlier on the second Sunday in March and end on the first Sunday in November.
In the United States, Under the Uniform Time Act, the Department of Transportation is in charge of time zones in the United States and ensuring that jurisdictions observing Daylight Saving Time begin and end on the same date.
New! Ten Mexico municipalities which border the United States have adopted daylight saving time schedules to be consistent with the United States.
On Monday August 8, 2005 President Bush signed into a broad energy bill that extended Daylight Saving Time by four weeks beginning in 2007.
Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe Daylight Saving Time.
At the end of Daylight Saving Time turn your clocks back one hour.

Current country/territory names, rather than historic country names are displayed, so the list could contain countries that did not exist at the time.
When DST is not observed, it is called standard time, normal time or winter time.
Daylight saving time is also called summer time or daylight savings time.
This list displays a brief (but not complete) overview over which countries and territories that observed DST during 2012.

With daylight saving time (also called daylight savings time) kicking off again, clock confusion is once again ticking away: Why do we spring forward? Does daylight saving time really save energy? Is it bad for your health? Get expert answers below.
The federal government doesn’t require U.S. states or territories to observe daylight saving time, which is why residents of Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Marianas Islands won’t need to change their clocks this weekend.
The Energy Department report found that daylight saving time resulted in an energy savings of one percent daily in the state.
For decades advocates of daylight savings have argued that, energy savings or no, daylight saving time boosts health by encouraging active lifestyles—a claim Wolff and colleagues are currently putting to the test.
Ben Franklin—of "early to bed and early to rise" fame—was apparently the first person to suggest the concept of daylight savings, according to computer scientist David Prerau, author of the book Seize the Daylight: The Curious and Contentious Story of Daylight Saving Time.
While use of artificial lights dropped, increased air-conditioning use more than offset any energy gains, according to the daylight saving time research Kotchen led for the National Bureau of Economic Research [PDF] in 2008.
"In a nationwide American time-use study, we’re clearly seeing that, at the time of daylight saving time extension in the spring, television watching is substantially reduced and outdoor behaviors like jogging, walking, or going to the park are substantially increased," Wolff said.
For most Americans, daylight saving time 2012 will begin 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 11, when most states will spring forward an hour.
In an October 2008 daylight saving time report to Congress (PDF), mandated by the same 2005 energy act that extended daylight saving time, the U.S. Department of Energy asserted that springing forward does save energy.
Till Roenneberg, a chronobiologist at Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, Germany, said his studies show that our circadian body clocks-set by light and darkness-never adjust to gaining an "extra" hour of sunlight to the end of the day during daylight saving time.
During the 1973-74 Arab oil embargo, the U.S. once again extended daylight saving time through the winter, resulting in a one percent decrease in the country’s electrical load, according to federal studies cited by Prerau.
That figure suggests that daylight saving time reduces annual U.S. electricity consumption by 0.03 percent and overall energy consumption by 0.02 percent.
Daylight Saving Time 2012: Why and When Does It Begin? Why do we spring forward? Do daylight savings work? Get the facts.
Environmental economist Hendrik Wolff, of the University of Washington, co-authored a paper that studied Australian power-use data when parts of the country extended daylight saving time for the 2000 Sydney Olympics and others did not.
First, they say, move standard time forward an hour, then keep observing daylight saving time as usual-adding two hours of evening daylight to what we currently consider standard time.
"I think the first day of daylight saving time is really like the first day of spring for a lot of people," Prerau said.
Thirty years later the Energy Policy Act of 2005 was enacted, mandating a controversial monthlong extension of daylight saving time, starting in 2007.
But Seize the Daylight author David Prerau said his research on daylight saving time suggests most people are fond of it.
So when the whole state adopted daylight saving time, it became possible to compare before-and-after energy use.
Calling energy-efficiency claims "unproven," they write: "If we are saving energy let’s go year round with Daylight Saving Time.
In recent years several studies have suggested that daylight saving time doesn’t actually save energy—and might even result in a net loss.
That’s because the extra hour that daylight saving time adds in the evening is a hotter hour.
In fact, Hoosier consumers paid more on their electric bills than before they made the annual switch to daylight saving time, the study found.
In the U.S. a federal law standardized the yearly start and end of daylight saving time in 1918—for the states that chose to observe it.
Time will fall back to standard time again on Sunday, November 4, 2012, when daylight saving time ends.
During World War II the U.S. made daylight saving time mandatory for the whole country, as a way to save wartime resources.
During this period daylight saving time was observed year-round, essentially making it the new standard time, if only for a few years.
Since the end of World War II, though, daylight saving time has always been optional for U.S. states.
Extended daylight saving time saved 1.3 terawatt hours of electricity.
Prior to 2006 only 15 of the state’s 92 counties observed daylight saving time.
The folks behind, on the other hand, want to abolish daylight saving time altogether.

From 1970 until 2006, most of Indiana in the Eastern Time Zone did not observe daylight saving time, but the entire state started to do so in April 2006 after eight counties in western Indiana were shifted from the Eastern Time Zone to the Central Time Zone.[25] One goal for observing DST was to get more Indiana counties observing the same timezone; formerly, 77 counties observed EST, 5 observed EST/EDT (the EDT usage being unofficial only), and 10 observed CST/CDT.
Colorado Springs Gazette columnist Ralph Routon wrote a series of columns in 1999 promoting placing all of Colorado on year-round DST in order to save state residents the "aggravation of resetting their clocks every six months."[16] The idea gathered popular support in Colorado Springs and the attention of the state’s larger newspapers,[17] but when state Senator MaryAnne Tebedo attempted to present the idea to the state legislature, her research uncovered federal laws forbidding the state-initiated extension of daylight saving time.
There is opposition to DST in Florida.[19] State senator Bill Posey introduced a bill in March 2008 to abolish daylight time in the state and keep Florida on year-round standard time.[20] Because Florida straddles two time zones, the Florida legislature has the option of returning all or part of the state to standard time along time zone boundaries.
Most areas of the United States currently observe daylight saving time (DST), the exceptions being Arizona (except for the Navajo Nation, which does observe daylight saving time),[1] Hawaii,[2] and the overseas territories of Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the United States Virgin Islands.
By the Energy Policy Act of 2005, daylight saving time (DST) was extended in the United States beginning in 2007.[8] As of that year, DST begins on the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November.
The Navajo Indian Reservation, which extends into two adjacent states, Utah and New Mexico, does observe daylight saving time.[15] The Hopi Reservation, which is entirely within the state of Arizona and is an enclave of the Navajo Indian Reservation, does not observe DST.
Daylight saving time starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November, with the time changes taking place at 2:00 a.m. local time.

Jen is quiet during a session with Frost, thinking about the song “Sweet Jane.” Suddenly she’s in Grand Central Station with Joey, supposedly visiting New York to see a college.
All at the same time, Pacey’s driven home in a cop car, Joey waits for Jen, and Dawson sleeps on the beach while Gretchen sits nearby, awake.
And even in the scene in the restaurant, when Joey and Theo are talking about New York and Jen is just sitting there, listening and trying to keep it together, you can tell what she’s thinking, which is the mark of a great actor.
As Gretchen finds a diner, Jen and Joey finally go in to see Jen’s father, Theo.
As Pacey starts his test, Dawson and Gretchen get a flat tire after six hours of driving.
Jen sends Joey off to do whatever she wants, and Joey doesn’t get lost or even say she doesn’t know how to get back to the train station.
Jen and Joey meet up with an old friend of Jen’s named Tyfo who’s excited that she might come back to New York.
Joey tells him they’re in the city because Jen got accepted to the University of New York.

But Brussels has pushed hard for closing time, though generous grandfather rules will keep these companies imbibing for years. In that sense, while Ireland may have to change some of its tax code and even cork the Double Irish, there’s still time.
Thus, all the European income—that previously would have been taxed in the U.S.—is taxed in Ireland instead. Then the Irish company changes its headquarters to Bermuda.
The EU and OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) say Ireland gave sweetheart tax deals to Apple amounting to illegal state aid. But when is the last call? With grandfathering, there’s no immediate threat and there could even be a run on the structures.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has said that “we must address the persistent issue of ‘stateless income,’ which undermines confidence in our tax system at all levels.” In May 2013, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said Apple avoided $9 billion in U.S. taxes in 2012 alone via offshore units with no tax home. Calling it the “holy grail of tax avoidance,” Sen.
This liberal phase-in may make the U.S. and EU mad, but it seems a shrewd move to keep the Irish economy moving. Besides, there will be new tax deals to be had in Ireland.
At 12.5%, Ireland’s corporate tax rate trounces the U.S. rate of 35%. But these companies don’t pay that 12.5% under the double Irish structure that is a high-tech standard.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Lenora Monkemeyer has lived without running water for nearly six years in the house she owns in Syracuse.
Ken Towsley, director of code enforcement, said he spoke to Monkemeyer Thursday and told her she could resume water service if she paid a $140 connection fee and allowed a code inspector inside to verify that the house is safe.
But Syracuse officials have no plans to force Monkemeyer out of the house she has occupied for more than 40 years — unless the structure deteriorates so much that it becomes a hazard and requires demolition.
Monkemeyer pins her hopes for saving her Syracuse home on selling a property in New York City that has been in her family for decades.
Lenora acquired the house for $1 in 1999 from the Herbert Monkemeyer Trust, according to property records.
City code inspectors declared Monkemeyer’s house at 717-19 Livingston Ave.
Lots of people have tried to help Monkemeyer, a former ballet teacher whose house is the only one on her block that has not been converted into student apartments.
Two years ago, Maisha Baddoo, a recent SU graduate who met Monkemeyer as a student, launched a crowd-funding campaign on the Indiegogo website that netted nearly $5,000 to pay off some of Monkemeyer’s back taxes and other expenses.

Free health care, anyone? Kiplinger’s points out that under the Affordable Care Act, "most health plans now must provide a variety of preventive-care benefits free." These include "screenings for high blood pressure, mammograms for women older than 40, and routine vaccinations for children, as well as a long list of other tests and services." Granted, taxpayers are paying for all of this — so in a sense it’s not actually "free." But if you’re a taxpayer, you’ve already paid for it, so you might as well get what you’ve paid for.
For those who don’t make the cut at Berea, or who just want to add some specialized knowledge to their brains but leave the official sheepskin on the sheep, Kiplinger’s points out that you can get free foreign language lessons online at and at the website of the Foreign Service Institute.

STANDARD TIME Mark Stuart Dance Theatre Workshop 2012 Info, pics, tweets, articles etc.
STANDARD TIME is the first full-evening length work created by Mark Stuart Dance Theatre.
Working within MSDT's signature action-packed and gravity-defying style, this 90-minute dance theatre piece dramatizes the stories of three pairs of lovers – mortal and fallible – who succumb to various forms of social prejudice.
Set in three different time periods, (30's–40's, 50's–70's and the 80's–present) each story is woven together musically by the popular "standards" and dance styles of their respective eras.
for the STANDARD TIME Mark Stuart Dance Theatre Workshop.
Featuring 14 MSDT dancers, 4 singers, and a live orchestra, STANDARD TIME explores the evolution of social conflict and mankind’s difficulty to learn from previous mistakes.
