Yes it’s that time of year again, where most everywhere in Continental America sets their clocks back one hour, except in Saskatchewan, Canada things remain consistent – relatively speaking in my old stomping grounds^ the clocks there never change^ While remaining areas of Canada and the United States currently observe daylight saving time (DST), the exceptions being Arizona, (except for the Navajo Nation, which does observe daylight saving time), Hawaii, and the overseas territories of Puerto RicoAmerican Samoa,Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and the United States Virgin Islands do not.

Since 2007, daylight saving time starts on the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November, with all time changes taking place at 2:00 A.M. local time. In 2012, daylight saving time began on March 11 and ends on November 4. In 2013, daylight saving time begins on March 10 and ends on November 3. In 2014… DST.

 How and When Did Daylight Saving Time Start? Ben Franklin—of “early to bed and early to rise” fame—was apparently the first person to suggest the concept of daylight saving time, according to computer scientist David Prerau, author of the book Seize the Daylight: The Curious and Contentious Story of Daylight Saving Time.

I wish the same could be said for the following… clockwise!

doomsday clock set

Now with the ever present doomsday clock eye ticking closer to that fateful day {as usual pardon puns intended} the metaphorical reference to the ‘doomsday clock’ is set 5 or 4 minutes to midnight,  depending whether you believe wikipedia or the video above, unlike my prediction displayed on my feature/future blood shot clock-eye, I have set to just under 3 minutes to… since I believe the time is now or never, to set the doomsday clock eye back sooner than later, with everything humanity now faces clockwise…

It’s namesake was coined in 1947 by the “Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists” … during the Cold War, NOW The Hot War is here more ways than one, we all pay the price if nothing is done, see definition of ‘nothing’




The next Doomsday Clock Symposium is set for November 14, 2013, {we’ll see if my clock-eye is right} decided by the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists are adjunct to the essays in the Bulletin on global affairs. The Clock is not set and reset in real time as events occur, The most recent officially announced setting—five minutes to midnight (11:55pm)—was made on January 14, 2013.


So I ask all…can we “set the doomsday clock eye back”? or we will be infinitely clock eyed!

for any hope of future generations!
