Daylight Saving Time: You're Doing it Wrong - March 22, 2021, 6 p.m.

So there was this scientist on teh CBC the other day making a very compelling argument that we ditch DLST for ST permanently because ST is based on the sun to which we evolved.

> "As a biologist, I think about this in terms of the biological clock," explained Patricia Lakin-Thomas, York University professor and Canadian Society for Chronobiology board member.

> "We have this clock in our brain that is set by light and it controls our daily activities, our daily physiology, our sleep-wake cycle. And then there are clocks all over the body … they get set by the brain clock," she said.

> Lakin-Thomas compared switching to permanent daylight time as being in a perpetual state of jet lag, as the body's biological clocks, or circadian rhythms, would constantly be out of sync.

> "Under standard time, the time is going to be closer to our natural tendency to rise with the sun and to be in sync with the sun. Standard time is closer to that body time," she said.

Dude prolly got it d/t on the front of a transit bus. So many times I felt like an accessory to a crime but....what'ya gonna' do?

Pretty ballsy, or just plain dumb walking into the Empress like that. Coulda' gone catastrophically sideways. A lot of those people have got absolutely nothing to lose. I've seen savage assaults down there for way less than a few hun in stolen bike parts.

> some minor customizations to the Seal Shield, to streamline it a little, will definitely be taking place.

That extra little bit of plastic (Seal Shield) adds structure and strength to the mounting area.

If you're feeling a need to modify it I think there's a pill or 12 step program you need to take.
