Myth breaking: The Daylight Saving Time

Myth breaking: The Daylight Saving Time
On Sunday most part of the United States turned their clocks one hour forward due to the Daylight Saving Time. Few people know where the tradition comes from. So here is a brief introduction to the history of Daylight Saving Time.

The idea of time shift twice a year came to Benjamin Franklin. He published “An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light” where he describes a discovery made by him that time shift can save money, since people use candles in the late hours of the evening or at dawn.

However, the implementation was only done when President Lyndon Johnson signed the document back in 1966. Recent researches, on the other hand, show that the “saving” with these shifts is doubtful: only 1% decrease of light usage, while the usage of heat and conditioning grows by 3%, inform the USA Today. Some scientists also connect the time shift to the increase in the car accidents rates two days after the new time is applied. So, they recommend starting getting used to the shift on Friday to be ready to face the difference by Monday.скачать dle 10.6фильмы бесплатно
