Will time translate?
Long since people lived in accordance with astronomical time: they got up at sunrise, lay down after dark. Later, time zones were defined for different parts of the world. The development of industrial society associated with the consumption of electricity, has led to think about saving it. So there were ideas about the transfer of arrows. In the USSR, they switched to summer time in 1981. The translation was canceled in 2011. But will they translate time in the future?
The cancellation of the switch of arrows in 2011 was justified by the discomfort experienced by many residents of the country during the period of adaptation to the new regime. But over the past two years, it turned out that this solution has a lot of minuses.
In many regions, the time began to differ from the geographic zone by 1–3 hours, and there were problems with scheduling transport operations. The time difference with Europe has also increased, which negatively affected the conduct of business, in particular, the work of the exchange. Yes, and health complaints did not become less.
Therefore, in the fall of 2012, a bill was submitted on the return of winter time. The Prime Minister recently announced that research, consultations with doctors and scientists will be conducted. But for now everything will remain as before.
So the question whether time will be translated in Russia remains open. Anyway, in the spring of 2013.
