‘Spring forward’ may cause problems with electronic devices

first_imgUnlike the usual daylight-saving time switch, which typically involves adjusting a few wristwatches and wall clocks, this one is different. Calling it an energy-saving measure, Congress last year mandated an earlier “spring forward” and a one-week later “fall back” to give the country extra hours of daylight. But millions of electronic devices manufactured before the mandate – everything from computers and BlackBerrys to clocks and cell phones – are still programmed for the old schedule. And experts say that could leave consumers and businesses across the country in some surprising pickles when the time change takes effect at 2 a.m. Sunday. City operations should run smoothly come Monday, said local technology specialists, who have spent the last month preparing computers and other systems for this weekend’s time change. SANTA FE SPRINGS – Alex Tong is not worried about the daylight-saving time change this weekend. As technology services director for Santa Fe Springs, Tong simply asked city employees to check their computers Monday to make sure the time is set correct. If a worker’s computer did not automatically adjust, it’s not a big deal, he said. “The worst problem that will happen is that computers will be off by one hour. It would just mean we’d have to manually change those,” said Tong. Others may be annoyed at having to change some devices around the home or workplace when daylight-saving time kicks in early Sunday – a full three weeks earlier than usual. That’s earlier than most of the multitude of devices that have been programmed to automatically adjust their clocks. Bob Spencer, spokesman for Pico Rivera, said city employees have been asked to ensure the “automatic update” option on the Microsoft Windows XP operating systems is on. “What it instructs your computer to do is change to daylight saving,” said Spencer. “When you turn your computer off overnight, and then turn it on in the morning, it’s connected.” E.J. Boranian, information technology manager for Whittier, is also confident her city’s computers are prepared with the appropriate software. “We are all patched and ready to go. I think we’re in good shape,” she said. The Information Technology Association of America recently warned businesses to check their computer software and hardware, noting glitches could disrupt security devices, financial services and scheduling. In Whittier-area communities, city information specialists said they’ve spent the last month installing software patches on hundreds of city desktop computers, servers and other devices. The special patches connect computers to a network – which most cities use – that will automatically change their clocks ahead one hour Sunday. Upgrading software generally comes at no inconvenience, although some older-model computers and other gadgets may take additional steps to prepare with the updates. “It’s not an insignificant task. Sometimes it takes five to six hours per computer,” said Thaddeus McCormack, assistant to the city manager in Santa Fe Springs. “We’ve had to dedicate a staff person just to do that.” Other time-sensitive devices, such as hand-held parking ticket computers, are also prone to being an hour behind. “Everything needs to be correct, including the time,” said Spencer, who added that information specialists also have prepared those devices. Despite officials’ precautions, there are no guarantees that all patches and updates will work. But even if there’s a glitch, the effects should be minimal, experts said. For example, city employees who fail to update their scheduling software could end up running late for meetings. “We’ve warned staff that recurring meetings … may have some problems, but we’ve also talked to them about how to work through that,” said Boranian. In California state government, most information technology issues are handled by individual departments, so it was unclear this week whether all agencies are prepared. But officials in several key agencies said they are aware of the problem and have been working on it. The Department of Motor Vehicles, for example, has already fixed nearly 7,000 desktop computers and several hundred servers and is not expecting any glitches Sunday, officials said. Functions like scheduling appointments for driving tests through the department’s Web site should not be affected. “We’ve already implemented software necessary to account for the daylight-saving time … on all of our peripheral equipment and handheld devices,” said DMV spokesman Mike Marando. In most cases, the daylight-saving shift is seen as a minor inconvenience. But because many consumers and businesses are unaware of the change, the inconveniences could be widespread. “It didn’t really register that much. But I think for a lot of businesses out there, this may catch them off-guard and, in many cases, cause some real problems,” said Jack Kyser, chief economist of the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. Kyser, calling himself barely aware of the problem, said the situation might mark a rare occasion when people who aren’t heavily reliant on technology have an advantage. “A lot of people around here print out their schedule for the next day. I’m old-fashioned. I still use calendar books. “For us old fogies, this is no problem. But for the modern types, definitely a pain.” Staff Writer Rick Orlov contributed to this story. araceli.esparza@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3024160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

THE HOOPS REPORT: CELTIC IN 7TH HEAVEN WITH ANOTHER WIN

first_imgFROM NEIL DOHERTY IN PERTH: CELTIC recorded their seventh straight SPL win in a row with a 2-0 victory at St Johnston today, with manager Neil Lennon singling out the performance of Georgios Samaras.The Greece international was in form in Perth again today after some fine performances recently.Gary Hooper stabbed home from close range following a 60th-minute corner and Ki Sung-Yeung fired in after a quick break four minutes later to reduce the gap with Rangers to four points. “Samaras was brilliant, as was Hooper and Forrest in the second half,” said Lennon.“I don’t like singling people out, but Samaras brings something different to the team. We need players like that.”A couple of months ago many Celtic fans – including many in Donegal – were asking why Lennon had bothered keeping the Greek. Now he’s showing why.“He’s proven his character this season,” said Lennon. “People were pointing the finger at him, saying he was lazy, but I’ve seen a different character.“I’m pleased he’s shown a level of consistency that’s doing him justice.“It was magnificent from start to finish. We dominated the first half and their keeper kept them in it to keep the score at 0-0.“In the second half, we just seemed to find another level.“The second goal was world class. It’s something we’ve been trying to do on the counter attack for a while.” The win puts Celtic back to within four points of Rangers.“I could go through the whole team and there’s not one failure,” said Lennon, who stuck with the same side who drew with Udinese in the Europa League in midweek.“Coming off the back of Thursday, they’re really in the groove.“We’ve now got seven wins in a row, which breeds a lot of confidence, but the belief is there as well. Advertisement “They’ve found the form of last season earlier than they did last year.“We’ve got players to come back into the fray, but St Johnstone are a difficult side to break down, they’ve had a good start to the season.“They’ve had some adverse results, but at home it’s always hard here.“To play as well and create the chances we did, it’s very pleasing.” Advertisement The bad news is that Celtic could be without Daniel Majstorovic for up to six weeks after the defender suffered a serious facial injury in the win.Said Lennon: “It looks like a fractured cheekbone. It could be a fractured eye-socket.“It’ll have to be scanned and assessed, but it’s a massive blow for us.“He could be out for four to six weeks, but we’ll see how he is before we give him a definitive time out.”© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comTHE HOOPS REPORT: CELTIC IN 7TH HEAVEN WITH ANOTHER WIN was last modified: December 18th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:2-0CelticNeil LennonSamarasSt Johnstonthe hoops report on donegaldailylast_img read more

Democrats Abroad Ireland gathered at the Gresham hotel in Dublin this week to celebrate the inauguration of the US President for a second term in office.Led by Gaobh Dobhair man, Sean Hillen, national public relations director for DA Ireland, the group’s chairperson and other dignitaries said they would lobby the White House for such an event.Richard Moat, chief financial officer Eircom with Lisa McKelvey.Hillen said presence of the US President could be a calming influence on angry clashes in the north and help renew the frayed peace process – as former US president Bill Clinton did before him with considerable global political success.Aside from Hillen, the DA event this week had a marked Donegal presence, including Lisa McKelvey, a Dublin-based RTE correspondent from Dungloe, attending the event in a personal capacity. Donegal Mayor Frank McBrearty said he was very open to discussing the idea, saying such an event would be “very beneficial in enhancing the county’s image both at home and abroad and help attract many more visitors to see what we have to offer in terms of hospitality and enjoyment.” FORGET MONEYGALL!

LYIT RANKED 16TH OUT OF TOP 21 UNIVERSITIES BY SUNDAY TIMES

first_imgLetterkenny Institute of Technology has been ranked 16th out of a list of Ireland’s top 21 universities – down two places from its position last year.The LYIT campusTrinity College Dublin (TCD) is the top ranked university in The Sunday Times Good University Guide league table, published tomorrow, September 28.The 13th annual edition of the guide sees Trinity maintain its position as the best of Ireland’s seven universities, while Dublin IT is the top Institute of Technology, ranking eighth overall. The information is contained in The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015, a 16-page supplement published free with the newspaper tomorrow.LYIT shows a graduate employment rate of 88%, Firsts/2:1s of 56% and a completion rate of 83% of courses.The rankings of all of the top eight institutions remain unchanged, although within the six performance indicators which make up an institution’s ranking there is considerable movement year on year with sharp variations in performance between colleges.Amongst institutions included in the league table, the graduate employment ranking is topped by the University of Limerick – The Sunday Times University of the Year – jointly with IT Tallaght with just 5% of graduates still seeking work nine months after leaving. This compares to a rate almost four times higher (18%) at Athlone IT. Trinity’s unemployment rate of 6% ranks the university fifth on this measure, but TCD builds up an unassailable lead in the overall table with a strong performance across all measures. It recruits the best qualified students, who amass an average 508 Leaving Certificate points each. They go on to achieve more firsts and 2:1s (74%) than students at any other institution.University College Cork tops the research rankings earning more from research per head of academic staff than any other institution. Competitive research funding of more than €78m amounts to more than €111,800 per head of staff, comfortably more than both University College Dublin (€104,855) and TCD (€97,853) in second and third place respectively.Dublin IT has comfortably the best completion rate of any third level institution in Ireland with 92% of students who enrolled in 2008 graduating by summer 2013. The next best performance sees 85% of students complete their studies at Galway-Mayo IT – the Sunday Times Institute of Technology of the Year – and IT Carlow, last year’s IT of the Year winner. IT Sligo has the lowest completion rate, standing at just 70%.The overall table is ranked on six performance measures: the average Leaving Certificate points needed for entry, course completion rates, the proportion of top degrees awarded, graduate job prospects, the income generated from research and staffing levels. Three of the indicators are shown in the table above.The Sunday Times Good University Guide is now in its 13th year of publication. It provides the definitive rankings for Irish third-level institutions, together with profiles of each institution and a view from students of what it is like to study there. It also contains the first full listing of 2015 courses and the first round entry points needed to access these courses from the recently-completed 2014 admissions cycle. The online edition available at www.thesundaytimes.ie/gooduniversityguide features fully searchable tables on each of the measures on which institutions are ranked, together with profiles of each.
