U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature For November 4
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 4: DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ENDSProfile America — Sunday, November 4th. You can be sure some people got up early this morning, forgetting that daylight saving time ended last night. It will return next year on the second Sunday in March. On this date in 1884, time zones around the world were set by delegates from 25 nations at a Washington, D.C. conference. And the year before, American Charles Dowd proposed four time zones for the U.S. to standardize then chaotic railroad timetables. Keeping time is not only important for individuals, businesses, and transportation but also lends itself to a fashion statement. Watches are a key item in the inventory of the nation's more than 71,000 jewelry stores, which sell $31 billion worth of jewelry and related items each year.
