What started in Germany as a World War I effort to save energy has a lot of people wondering what's the point is in this era. But after Germany found success with a similar plan, the British eventually implemented Willett's proposal. It wasn't until the next World War that DST made its return in most of Europe. It now boasts over 130,000 signatures begging Congress to "stop messing with our schedules" and to end the "antiquated practice" of daylight saving time.

However, it's hard to say whether daylight saving translates into energy savings, according to several studies, including a 2007 Department of Energy study and a 1997 study on a residential home in Kansas, Live Science previously reported.

The additional power usage cost IN power users $9 million a year and increased pollution, to boot, the researchers found. Daylight Saving Time is in effect in the USA until Sunday, November 5.

More daylight means more money for business. In 1966, Congress passed the time act unifying the practice across the USA but allowing states to opt out by local ordinance. The barbecue industry reported $100 in additional sales.

Aiming for at least 30 minutes of exercise during the day, most days of the week, should also help.

"I'm getting up in age a little bit". "They can still play; it's a good thing". "Because eventually, you will run out of time", he concluded. Having extra leisure hours.

Yes, it's that time of year again, but are you ready?

The FDNY is reminding everyone to use this as a reminder to replace the batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, fire officials say in 70 percent of fatal fires, there are no working smoke alarms.

Drivers are also advised to drive carefully as the time shift may cause problems due to sleep deprivation.
