Night Owls vs. Early Birds in the Business World | CAREEREALISM

It turns out, not only is this old bromide not accurate, it may be just the opposite. In two recent studies (one of which is abstracted on the net, the other one is not) by the University of Liege and by a Japanese researcher Kanazawa (here is the link to the Liege abstract) night owls are actually better able to handle a day than the “larks,” who are up at the crack of dawn each morning. And according to Kanazawa’s study, they are, generally speaking, people of higher intelligence than the “morning people.” Both studies also showed that night owls tend to get more work done, and resist the pressure to sleep better than the larks.
But the Boomers are retiring. Younger people are going to be filling positions in droves. And they are not as willing as we were to conform their body rhythms to the slavery of “the company.” They’ll simply leave and find other jobs that aren’t requiring them to get up at 0 dark thirty.

Re: F Daylight Savings Time

The one thing I hate is having to drive to work in the dark again. Just when it started getting light before 7 am and I could enjoy some morning sun it gets taken away.

Cockatiels are the same way. If we forget to cover him the night before...it's like a fire alarm going off at 6 AM.

The kids slept in today...usually up at about 7 but slept until after 8. It was still dark when I woke up at 6...love the sunny evenings now too.

I don't mind DST. It happens every year...don't act like it's the end of the world when it happens...every year...twice.

Well said. Glad to hear feminism hasn't torn down EVERY man out there.

Harry Stamps Obituary: View Harry Stamps's Obituary by The Sun Herald

He despised phonies, his 1969 Volvo (which he also loved), know-it-all Yankees, Southerners who used the words "veranda" and "porte cochere" to put on airs, eating grape leaves, Law and Order (all franchises), cats, and Martha Stewart. In reverse order. He particularly hated Day Light Saving Time, which he referred to as The Devil's Time. It is not lost on his family that he died the very day that he would have had to spring his clock forward. This can only be viewed as his final protest.

Finally, the family asks that in honor of Harry that you write your Congressman and ask for the repeal of Day Light Saving Time. Harry wanted everyone to get back on the Lord's Time.
