In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most MercifulAll living creatures require a fairly regular sleep cycle for their survival. Our circadian rhythms resulting from rapid change in sleep patterns are slow to adjust
and remain on their original biological schedule for several days. This
results in our bodies’ telling us it is time to sleep, when it is
actually the middle of the afternoon. Additionally, it may make us want
to stay awake when it is late at night. This experience is known as jet
lag. All of these are influenced by our exposure to sunlight and help
determine when we sleep and when we wake. Late Night Parties, Bad sleep habits, Day Light Savings and Jet Lag
can precede insomnia symptoms and other various sleep disorders. Also,
it increases challenges to science and technology, and our lives could
be in danger as well. Sleep Disorders may also happens to those who
participate in late night parties etc.Health Effects due to Sleep Disorders:
Sleep Disorders - Jet Lag - Bad Sleep Habits
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Global Right Path
sleep habits, Day Light Savings and Jet Lags can affect both your body
clock and health. Studies show that there is an increase in both heart
attacks and road accidents in the days after clocks are set forward by
one hour in spring.
Setting your clock forward one hour for
Daylight Saving Time (DST) could mean losing an hour of sleep on the
morning after the change. Also bad sleep habits and Jet Lag have the
same effect, as well as sleeping late during the weekend and getting up
early on weekdays.
Being tired can decrease productivity,
concentration, and general well-being. Several studies also link bad
sleep habits, Day Light Savings and Jet Lags to increased risk of heart
attacks, road accidents, and sleep problems.Challenges to Science & Engineering:
synchronization is a problem from computer science and engineering
which deals with the idea that internal clocks of several computers may
differ. Even when initially set accurately, real clocks will differ
after some amount of time due to clock drift, caused by clocks counting
time at slightly different rates. There are several problems that occur
as a repercussion of clock rate differences and several solutions, some
being more appropriate than others in certain contexts.Economic Impacts:
All of these impacts have economic costs too. An index from Chmura Economics & Analytics, released in 2013
, suggests that the cost could be up to $434
million in the U.S. alone for DST alone. That's an estimated total of
all of the health effects and lost productivity mentioned above for DST
alone, what about many other Sleep Disorders.
Other calculations suggest this cost could be up to $2
billion - just from the 10
minutes twice a year that it takes for every person in the U.S. to change their clocks. (If you calculate 10
minutes per household instead of per person this "opportunity cost" is only $1
billion.).Global Clock Synchronization:
" (abbreviation: Long., λ
or lambda) of a point on the Earth's surface is the angle east or west
from a reference meridian to another meridian that passes through that
The world started going back towards normal to one Global
Clock Synchronization. The majority of countries never observed
Daylight Saving Times. In 2014
, Russia left permanent DST and switched to permanent standard time.
Farmers never go with Daylight Saving Times. Alternatively, they follow sunrises and sunsets.It
is time now to switch back to one Global Clock Synchronization by
leaving permanently Daylight Savings, since it is creating more
problems and more unsynchronized world as well as bad for our economy
as well as for our health.Offset for time zones on lands from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) MUST be set to 30
minutes apart instead of a whole number of hours, regardless of
boundary of any provinces, states or countries, rather to follow lines
of one Global Standard longitudes, keeping in mind that one time zone for a city or village, but provinces, states or countries can have different time zones. Australia,
Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia,
Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Spain, United Kingdom and
USA etc. already have multiple time zones in their countries.
Time zone in one region will have one standard time, regardless of
north or south of equator. E.g.
many cities falling in one region of North America (e.g. Canada &
USA), Central America (e.g. Dominican Republic) or South America (e.g.
Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil & Venezuela) will have one standard time.References:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_time_zones_by_countryhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time_by_countryhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clock_synchronizationhttp://www.timeanddate.com/time/dst/daylight-saving-health.htmlhttp://www.businessinsider.com/economic-and-health-effects-of-daylight-saving-time-2014-3 “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise”, Benjamin Franklin.
