    This Sunday, Nov. 2, will mark the end of daylight saving time for 2020. I am pleased to share that, finally, serious legislative considerations ó in several states ó are underway in the quest to end the biannual rituals of changing from standard time to daylight saving time (DST). During the last 3 years, 13 states enacted legislation to provide for year-round daylight saving time if Congress were to allow such a change and, in some cases, if surrounding states would enact the same legislation, according to the website of the National Conference of State Legislatures. Full-time DST is not...

    He ran for President at a time of record unemployment and economic despair, with democracy itself in apparent retreat around the globe. He overcame tremendous personal hardship and promised to heal a battered nation. His friends thought of him as a unifier; his enemies called him a socialist. If this sounds to you like Joe Biden, youíd be right. If this sounds like Franklin Delano Roosevelt, youíd also be right.
  • Fauci: I donít respond to Trump because there's a Ďlimited amount of time in the day

    Dr. Anthony Fauciís role as the face of the governmentís response to the coronavirus pandemic is challenged daily by criticisms from the White House ó as well as what nearly all experts describe as misinformation on the virus being put out daily by President Trump. Just the latest example was during a recent campaign call in which Trump said, ďPeople are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots,Ē before going on to say, ďHeís been here for 500 years.Ē When asked about pushback he receives from Trump and his administration, Fauci said itís not something he worries about. ďIt's...
  • Thereís a new record for the shortest time measurement: how long it takes light to cross a hydrogen molecule

    Universe Today ^ | 10/26/2020 | Paul M. Sutter
    To measure small differences in time, you need a really tiny clock, and researchers in Germany have discovered the smallest known clock: a single hydrogen molecule. Using the travel of light across the length of that molecule, those scientists have measured the smallest interval of time ever: 247 zeptoseconds. Donít know what a ďzeptoĒ is? Read onÖ When a bit of light, called a photon, hits an atom with enough energy, it can kick the electron out of that atom and send it flying. When we carefully set up this situation in a laboratory, we can measure the electron shooting...
  • Timekeeping theory combines quantum clocks and Einstein's relativity

    10/23/2020 10:14:00 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 34 replies ^ | 10/23/2020 | Dartmouth College
    A phenomenon of quantum mechanics known as superposition can impact timekeeping in high-precision clocks, according to a theoretical study from Dartmouth College, Saint Anselm College and Santa Clara University. Research describing the effect shows that superpositionóthe ability of an atom to exist in more than one state at the same timeóleads to a correction in atomic clocks known as "quantum time dilation." The research, published in the journal Nature Communications, takes into account quantum effects beyond Albert Einstein's theory of relativity to make a new prediction about the nature of time. In the early 1900s, Albert Einstein presented a revolutionary...

    As many people anxiously await an announcement about whatís in the GOP coronavirus relief package called CARES 2, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned that ďtime is running out,Ē according to the Associated Press. Pelosi invited GOP leaders and White House negotiators to her office to encourage Republicans to quickly negotiate a stimulus plan with Democrats. ďIf Republicans care about working families, this wonít take long,Ē she said. Every year, Congress recesses for the month of August. Since the extra $600 in unemployment benefits and the eviction moratorium both expired, thereís pressure to get a deal worked out before August.

    News Observer ^ | 6/29/20 | Jonas Pope IV
    For several days last week, workers dismantled the 75-foot Confederate statue that has stood on the state Capitol grounds for 125 years. Monday, as crews removed the base to finish the job, they unearthed a time capsule of sorts underneath the rubble. The capsule was placed there when the monument was erected in 1894, said Michele Walker, public information officer for the N.C. Department of Cultural and Resources, in an interview with The News & Observer. Gov. Roy Cooper ordered the statueís removal, along with the removal of two other Confederate monuments on Capitol grounds. The governor cited public safety...

    The recent spate of protests against police brutality have changed the way the left thinks about rioting. The old liberal idea, which distinguished between peaceful protests (good) and rioting (bad), has given way to a more radical analysis. ďRiots work,Ē insists George Ciccariello-Maher in Salon. ďBut despite the obviousness of the point, an entire chorus of media, police, and self-appointed community leaders continue to try to convince us otherwise, hammering into our heads a narrative of a nonviolence that has never worked on its own, based on a mythical understanding of the Civil Rights Movement.Ē Voxís German Lopez, while acknowledging...

    Both President Donald Trump and Time Magazine recently ignored discussion of the ďsmoking gunĒ document definitively establishing that the World Health Organization lied to the world in the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic about whether the virus was showing human-to-human transmission. Ignoring this document allows the WHO and its supporters to continue to obfuscate the issue and argue that the WHO acted properly and should not be punished for its response to the virus. At stake are millions of American taxpayer dollars, countless lives that could be lost from future lying by the WHO, and the political survival of...

    Troubling headlines have been cropping up across Asia: Some patients in China, Japan and South Korea who were diagnosed with COVID-19 and seemingly recovered have been readmitted to the hospital after testing positive for the virus again. Because SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19, was only discovered a few months ago, scientists are still trying to answer many big questions related to the virus and the disease it causes. Among them is whether patients can be reinfected by the virus after they seem to recover from the symptoms. With other coronavirus strains, experts say the antibodies that patients produce...

    New York - TIME has obtained the first documented look inside the highly classified realm of military interrogations since the Gitmo Camp at Guantanamo Bay opened. The document is a secret 84-page interrogation log that details the interrogation of 'Detainee 063' at Guantanamo Bay. It is a remarkable look into the range of techniques and methods used for the interrogation of Mohammed al Qahtani, who is widely believed to be the so-called 20th hijacker, a compatriof Osama bin Laden and a man who had tried to enter the U.S. in August 2001 to take part in the Sept. 11 attacks....

    Attorneys call videos Ďsickeningí Lawyers for the man known as the "20th hijacker" of 9/11 are suing the U.S. government to release "sickening" videotapes they say show Guantanamo Bay interrogators torturing their client. The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan Federal Court on Monday by the Center for Constitutional Rights, said Mohammed Al-Qahtani was a victim ďof torture and other profoundly cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment." "The American public should now be permitted to see what occurred for itself," the lawsuit said. Between 2002 and 2003, Al-Qahtani suffered through marathon interrogation sessions and was subjected to severe temperatures, sleep deprivation and other...

    Time magazine has chosen 100 "Women of the Year," selecting one trailblazing woman to represent each year from 1920 to 2019. It's a distinctive way to celebrate Women's History Month, but it's also an acknowledgement that for many years, women's contributions were systematically overlooked. For 72 years, Time's most anticipated cover was called "Man of the Year" ó until 1999, when the magazine changed the title to "Person of the Year." Still, the male trend continued, and most of the people chosen for "Person of the Year" have been, in fact, men. So, as a reparation of sorts, Time is...

    In the 1960s, Milton Friedman reportedly visited a construction site in a foreign country. To his surprise, the canal builders used no heavy machinery and instead armed thousands of men with shovels. He questioned the bureaucrat about this odd choice and the bureaucrat responded that it was a jobs program. ďOh, I thought you were trying to build a canal,Ē Friedman said. ďIf itís jobs you want, then you should give these workers spoons, not shovels.Ē Friedmanís absurd proposal illustrates the absurdity of make-work biasóthe belief that conserving labor makes us poorer. Make-work bias was particularly popular during the Industrial...
