Thinking about time zones
I was looking for a thinking spot, because I had to think hard about time zones. Rhonda found one to send me. It is really beautiful. Thanks Rhonda. So I sat down and the first thing that come to my mind was the PM and AM thing. It is a bit hard for me to get used to - AM is that After Midnight? So what about PM? Is that Passed Midnight?
No. It is ante meridiem (a.m., Latin "before noon") and post meridiem (p.m., "after noon").
Very good. But how will I remember that? Just listen to this (from wiki) " People who grew up with the 12-hour clock often have problems indicating midnight and noon. Those who grew up with the 24-hour clock are confused when they come across situations very common in Internet forums and email, in which a message indicated as posted at "12:46 am" appears before a message marked "11:05 am".
It is like the timetable of flights from Mariehamn (Åland, Finland) – Stockholm. The time difference is one hour and the flight is half an hour. So it says:
From Mariehamn: 10 30 AM
To Stockholm 10 00 AM
Now that will make me sleepless. I don’t even know if I got it right here.
Time Zones....Hello Mr Urbano! This was supposed to be about time zones.
OK ...I am in Stockholm - it is 17 30 or 5:30 PM.
Where Rhonda lives it is 10:30 or 10:30 AM
In Los Angeles it is 08:30 or 8:30 PM
In Tokyo it is already tomorrow! 01:30 or 1:30 AM
I have to give up this discussion. It is really exhausting.
The bottom line is however: 591 Photography is not working 9 – 5 (09 00-17 00) It is working around the clock - in all time zones!
