    YARDLEY, Pa -- Basia Andrusko has been writing Pysanky since she was a child, etching ornate designs on everything from chicken, finch and quail eggs to ostrich, emu and rhea eggs. Pysanky comes from the word pysat, which means to write. Pysanky is the plural form of the word, and Basia describes it as almost like hieroglyphics.A sheaf of wheat, for example, stands for prosperity and bountifulness; horses or rams stand for strength. The color blue stands for good health and white for purity.She makes Pysanky jewelry and holds classes, teaching others the more than 2000-year-old tradition. When Christianity was adopted in Ukraine's capital city of Kyiv in 988, Pysanky became part of the Easter tradition with the eggs in Easter baskets. Basoa says Pysanky were considered good luck charms and the art was passed down through the generations.A single egg can take her anywhere from 30 minutes to 50 hours, depending on the size of the egg and the intricacy of the design. She says legend holds that there's a monster chained to a cliff somewhere in western Ukraine....
    Daylight saving time, that fall-back/spring-forward  annual ritual, is back in the spotlight now that the U.S. Senate has adopted the brightly named Sunshine Protection Act. The measure would eliminate those twice-yearly timepiece changes by making daylight saving time year-around and permanent. The bill now goes to an uncertain future in the House. This new congressional interest in sunshine recalls a furious battle over DST that roiled Minnesota politics for months at time in the mid-1960s — a fight that made Minnesota the laughingstock of the nation thanks to its two major cities, Minneapolis and  St. Paul, who could not agree on a common start date for changing the clocks. Long a bone of contention between urban and rural Minnesota, DST pitted neighboring communities against each other in 1965 when 20 states, including Wisconsin, opted to move their clocks ahead on April 25. But Minnesota was not one of the 20. At the time, state law mandated that DST could not start before May 23 — or extend beyond Labor Day. Along the state’s eastern border, cities from Duluth to Winona...
    Submit your letter to the editor via this form. Read more Letters to the Editor. Only drivers should get $400 gas tax rebate In their continual quest for socialism and redistribution of wealth, Democrats and Gov. Gavin Newsom now want a $400 gas tax gift provided to everyone in California, driver or not (“$400 rebate proposed to offset gas surge,” Page A1, March 18). How does that make any rational sense? Obviously, the state collects too much tax money. Rather than rebate it to registered owners of gas-powered vehicles (the people who paid the excess tax) just give it away to everyone. Exactly how fiscally responsible is that? Meanwhile, maybe someone within Newsom’s elite crowd will figure out California’s mystery gas tax fabricated in 2015. Or, maybe not.

    "An abundance of accumulated evidence indicates that the acute transition from standard time to daylight saving time incurs significant public health and safety risks, including increased risk of adverse cardiovascular events, mood disorders, and motor vehicle crashes," the group cautioned. Though admitting that "chronic effects" of remaining sprung forward "have not been well studied," the group goes on to conclude in its statement that "daylight saving time is less aligned with human circadian biology." Permanent daylight saving time, the group argued, "could result in circadian misalignment, which has been associated in some studies with increased cardiovascular disease risk, metabolic syndrome, and other health risks." As such, "current evidence best supports the adoption of year-round standard time, which aligns best with human circadian biology and provides distinct benefits for public health and safety," the AASM posited. In a news release, the group noted that its statement was endorsed by more than 20 related organizations, including the American College of Chest Physicians, American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, the National Safety Council, Society for Research on Biological Rhythms, the World...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Daylight Saving Time started Sunday, allowing Americans to enjoy an extra hour of light in the evenings. But what if the additional sunshine could last all year round? Sen. Ed Markey is making the case again for not changing the clocks at all, and making the time change permanent. The Massachusetts Democrat is partnering with Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in a bipartisan push for longer days. READ MORE: Thousands Of Ukrainian Flags Planted In Boston's Back Bay As Part Of Immersive Art Display“It’s time for us to go from polar to solar because people want that extra hour in the evening,” Markey told CBS News Boston. “The sunshine must be protected for everyone in the evening to be able to enjoy.” Markey said more daylight is good for the economy – and people’s spirits. “People are more likely to shop in daylight, people are more likely to play tennis or golf or to take a walk, it just changes everyone’s relationship with the light,” he said.  “It helps economic activity, helps reduce energy consumption and at...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Daylight Saving Time was once again trending on Twitter, due to everyone complaining about the lost hour from the weekend. Not only is Daylight Saving Time trending, but also Daylight Savings Time. Please don’t be that person. The simple fact is unless you like sunrises at nearly 9am, DST simply has to stick around. So yes, Daylight Saving Time (DST) is not perfect. Yes, it gets our internal clocks off for a little bit. It even impacts our bodies, with John Shumway saying that heart attacks annually go up around 25% on the Monday after DST returns. DST was originally started to save energy. While that isn’t as much an issue now, I think some of the unintended consequences of what DST brings to us far outweigh the day or two of discomfort we have to deal with after the change each year. To be clear, it really is a single day or two each year that our bodies are impacted. We get the hour back every November. I think the changeover is the perfect time. (Photo...
    DAYLIGHT Saving Time happens twice a year and is a sign of the changing seasons. In the spring, we change the clocks forward so that darkness falls at a later clock time and in the fall, we change it back. 2Daylight Saving Time first started on March 14, 2021Credit: Getty Do all US states follow DST? From 1945 to 1966, there was no federal law that required states to follow DST so many opted out. The state's decisions then caused mass confusion prompting former President Richard Nixon to sign into law the Emergency Daylight Time Energy Conservation Act in 1974, prior to his resignation.

    (CNN)This weekend, Americans will change their clocks and lose an hour of sleep, all because of a senseless and outdated government policy. Changing between daylight saving time and standard time isn't just an inconvenience to people everywhere — it has real repercussions for Americans' health, economy and public safety. We can't always get bipartisan agreement in Congress these days, but here's one thing we can agree on: we could all use a bit more sunshine. That's why we're working together in the US Senate to make sure we end the practice of "spring forward" and "fall back" by making daylight saving time permanent.Biden must tread carefully amid mounting criticism on UkraineAs US senators, we have seen the strong public support among Americans for making daylight saving time permanent. Already, 20 of the 48 states that observe the time change have passed proposals for year-round daylight. The states of Massachusetts and Florida, which we represent, have already expressed support for switching to permanent daylight saving time. The adoption of daylight saving time in the United States through the Calder Act, also...
    (CNN) — My least favorite weekend of the year is upon us. It’s the weekend in which I feel the effects of losing an hour of sleep because of the switch to Daylight Saving Time (notice the singular) from standard time. For others, this weekend is a happier time because we just gained an extra hour of daylight at the end of the day. Some might say the best way to reconcile these two beliefs is to have a full year of Daylight Saving Time. That is, always have the sun late and never have that feeling of a lost hour of sleep.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Even though winter doesn’t slip away until next weekend, time has its marching orders. In the United States, it’s time to “spring” forward. Daylight saving time announces its entrance at 2 a.m. local time Sunday for most of the country. Standard time hibernates until Nov. 6. It will stay lighter for longer into the evening but the sun will rise later in the morning than it has during the months of standard time. Remember to set clocks an hour ahead, usually before bed Saturday night. No time change is observed in Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas. A poll conducted last October shows that most Americans want to avoid switching between daylight saving and standard time, though there is no consensus behind which should be used all year. The poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found only 25% of Americans said they preferred to switch back and forth between standard and daylight saving time. Forty-three percent of Americans said they...

    Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is not bringing any to Sen. Bernie Sanders' world.  The Vermont progressive sent out a statement Thursday urging President Joe Biden to ask for DeJoy's 'immediate resignation,' blasting the appointee and donor of former President Donald Trump for his 'disastrous' plan to 'slow down mail delivery,' claiming he's trying to 'sabotage' the U.S. Postal Service.    'Not only are millions of people in Vermont and throughout the country not getting their Christmas presents delivered on time, senior citizens have experienced massive delays in receiving the lifesaving prescription drugs they desperately need and working families have been forced to pay late fees because it is taking much longer than normal for the Postal Service to mail their bills,' Sanders complained.   Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is not bringing any to Sen.

    A single mom who suffered a heart attack at age 27 and spent two years waiting for a transplant got one just in time for the holidays — and now she gets to spend Christmas with her nine-year-old child.  Victoria Guajardo, now 29, was just 27 when she had a heart attack that left her heart unable to pump, according to KTRK. She spent two years in a hospital over 300 miles away from home, meaning she didn't get to spend much time with her son, Alfredo De la Cruz. But in October, she finally got off the transplant list and is now recovering with a new heart — and her little boy.

    The lie that school board elections aren't political time and time and time again convinced people to swallow Kool-Aid that they knew was rancid. Tolerance. Diversity. Equity. Everyone waved those bloody pom-poms for years in their local school districts, because "being nice" was much more in style than questioning the ever-growing god complex of many of our nation's teachers. It was a masterful victory for brainwashing and propagandizing an entire nation. Maybe, just maybe, though, America is showing signs of waking up from its trance. This isn't because of any one thing. Teachers' unions played a key role in keeping schools shut down and kids forever masked during the last 20 months of our Covidstan saga. This happens to be the first election of any consequence after the steal of 2020. The vaccine wars are begging to create a new class of second-class citizenry.

    IT IS that time of the year when the weather is turning colder and the days are getting shorter. This could only mean one thing- we are officially in autumn and it's near the time we need to shift our clocks back by an hour. 1The clocks always go forwards on the last weekend in March, and back in October When do the clocks go back in 2021? The clocks always go forwards on the last weekend in March, and back in October. Thankfully, there’s a handy phrase to remember to avoid confusion - ‘spring forwards, fall back’. The clocks will go back an hour at 2am on Sunday, October 31. Do we gain an extra hour in October? Yes. Brits gain an extra hour of sleep when the clocks go backwards, signifying the start of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). This means the rest of the year and start of 2022 will see darker mornings. Brits lose an hour of sleep each March, with the clocks going forwards to put the UK on BST or British Summer Time. But the...
    Sen. Joe Manchin’s big effort to find “10 good people” in the Republican conference in the Senate will fail Wednesday. The Senate will hold a cloture vote on the Freedom to Vote Act, Manchin’s alternative voting rights and elections reforms bill for which he promised Republicans votes, and Republicans will filibuster it. That was all but guaranteed when Majority Leader Chuck Schumer scheduled the vote last week, and confirmed Tuesday when Alaska Republican Lisa Murkowski announced she would vote against allowing the Senate to even consider the bill. xMurkowksi says she will vote against proceeding to the Dems bill tomorrow to overhaul voting and election laws.

While most phones will automatically change the time, American's will have to manually reset ovens, microwaves, car radios and other various clocks around their house to reflect the new time. Who invented Daylight Saving Time? DST was first introduced by Benjamin Franklin in his essay "An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light", which was published in the Journal de Paris in 1784. Despite introducing it in 1784, Franklin's idea was forgotten about until William Willett wrote the pamphlet, "The Waste of Daylight." Willett's pamphlet caused British Summer Time...
    (CNN)What time is it? This seems like a simple enough question. You look at your watch, phone or microwave oven and tell us. But America, like many countries, can't seem to agree on what time it should be. There aren't many public policy issues on which about 70% of Americans dislike the status quo and there is no real partisan divide, but for which nothing gets done to change it. Well that's where we are with daylight saving time, where Americans agree on the problem but not the solution.The fight over daylight saving time has been going on for more than 100 years now. Should we turn the clocks forward in the spring and set them back in the fall? If not, then should we either stick with daylight saving time or the more traditional standard time? This is the focus of this week's episode of my new podcast "Margins of Error." We go on a journey every week to explore topics that seem to be on the margins at first glance, but that's actually where the fun and knowledge...

    This year, summer brings pretty much everything gardeners don’t want to deal with — high temperatures and the need to conserve water. Here are some tips on helping your plants survive the next few months without driving your water use too high. Change your watering schedule If you’re waiting until mid-morning or afternoon — or even at night — to water your garden and plants, you’re not taking the best advantage of the water you’ve got. The later in the day that you water, the higher the evaporation rate, so your plants aren’t getting the full benefit. Watering at night does greatly reduce evaporation, but letting your plants sit in damp or soggy soil all night can lead to mold, mildew and an abundance of insects that like the moisture. The best time to water is early in the morning. That gives plants time to absorb the water before evaporation is an issue, and prevents them from having what gardeners call wet feet. Mulch Mulching your flower beds is the best way to keep water in the soil, where it’s...

That in itself shows just how incredibly important that is to our entire ecosystem," said Jonathan Ledee, Co-founder of BEEPUBLIC.Using organic ingredients and compostable packaging, BEEPUBLIC is bringing a socially responsible coffee shop all while supporting local makers and small businesses.Related: Drop the Beet Farms is growing food sustainably through the power of aquaponics in NJSince opening back in September, amid the pandemic, BEEPUBLIC estimates it has served over 17,000 cups of coffee and diverted over 2000 lbs. of waste from entering landfills."What we've seen over the years is something called colony collapse disorder.
