What about a pic. of Jimmy Carter: he was into being nutty.

There is much discussion of ending the daylight savings routine due to the negative health effects. Recent studies have provided evidence that daylight savings time cost the country billions of dollars every year.

The UK had double-daylight savings during ww2.

Huff puff more heart attacks (NB, US$434 million; same figure in NYTimes, 2014) vs. reduced road deaths?

There's also articles about the impact of dst on spending, where the answer is: minimal/cancelled out by the switch back.

2 (or 1) billion figure here, based on "other calculations". The page it links to is now "gone".

As for daylight savings,
Queensland and WA don't have daylight savings, no big deal, the only real confusion is the states that do have it do it at different times, Tasmania I think generally have it for a bit longer than other states, mainly as being that far south they do have less daylight hours.

South Oz has it's own zone 1/2 hour different from the East coast. Apparently they do have dst--had thought they didn't. No dst in NT.

Here claims Hobart switches back the same time as Sydney/Melb.

True, and so does NT, but I don't think NT has DST
But that's understandable not having the same as the East Coast given it's a huge state, meaning those on the west side of the state would have slightly ridiculous daylight hours by the clock.

Some argued NZ should be 1/2 hour different, given position within timezone (band). Main opponents of dst here seem to be dairy farmers.

A couple of decades ago dst start/end was moved because of similar move by E. Oz--i.e. to keep in synch.

Meanwhile, Russia has 11 zones & no (longer any) dst... though they had it year-round in 1930.

I seem to recall that Nepal had a zone 1/4 of an hour different from India Standard Time, which itself is a 1/2 hour zone.

Understandable. Not only did my border-collie used to wake me each morning, during my short tenure milking cows, but the cows themselves would wait at the gate twice a day. Regular as clockwork, until dst...

Is there much 1/day milking in Tas? What about milking by robots?

Personally speaking I know little of either. (I've yet to view your links). Traditionally we milked twice a day, until they started 'drying off'.
First time I did this I was in my late teens, then again in my mid twenties.

Edit: I'm definitely in favour of robotic milking (seems cows are also). Some opt for three times a day.
I have great respect for dairy farmers, but it's not a lifestyle choice I'd care to make.
