Remember Daylight Saving Time this Sunday

Turn clocks ahead one hour on Sunday or risk trouble with your boss

Along with the excitement of spring also comes one unfortunate job everyone has to remember: Daylight Saving Time.

Keeping in mind the old adage, “Fall Back, Spring Ahead,” readers should remember to turn their clocks ahead one hour on this coming Sunday, March 13.

The negative effects of DST are still debated, but most critics feel the loss of an hour of sleep in the spring at least contributes to lethargy and loss of productivity for up to three weeks, while some critics feel it contributes to much more serious problems like car accidents.

Daylight Saving Time was originally introduced to Europe and North America around World War I to increase agricultural production.
