Let's see how far my knowledge stretches

If you live in the eastern area of the United States and you have an aunt who lives in California, you may have trouble figuring out the best time to call her because the time is three hours behind your time in the east. When you want to denote the time in the eastern standard time zone, you might put the abbreviation “EST” next to the time. However, sometimes, you will see EDT.

There is a difference between EST, and EDT. EST stands for eastern standard time, and EDT refers to eastern daylight time. The critical difference between EST and EDT has to do with the time of the year. It is EDT during spring, and it is EST during winters.

Anytime is the perfect time to discover your passion. You can get inspiration almost everywhere. It may be just a regular and ordinary day, but suddenly, you will realize that you are already experiencing something different from what you have expected. The moment that you discover your passion, you will realize that you do not want to let your passion die.

Even if it is just a hobby or something that will allow you to earn money, you will realize that your passion is something that you need in your life. Can you imagine living your life without passion? It will make you feel that your life has no definite meaning.

While there may not seem to be any differences between the words anytime and any time, there are differences which can segregate the words from one another. Any time and anytime are explained in Webster's Dictionary as the same thing, and they mean at any point in time or whenever. Britain's use of the word influenced the separation of the two words.

The correct way to use any time is when the word 'at' precedes 'at any time.' The word 'at' is said to generate a thorough separation between the two words. For example, 'You can come by at any time.' Anytime is the preferred in American English because it is the quicker use of the word. Both any time and anytime can be located in the dictionary after the words anything and anyway.

Living alone can be the perfect opportunity for you to live in peace and solitude as long as you know that you have already fought all of your demons successfully. This will give you the chance to decide on your own. You can make decisions based on what you think will work best for you.

You can also decide when you would like to meet up with people that you genuinely like. There is no need to pretend that you like the people that you are with. When you are alone, you can get to know yourself better. You will realize what things you truly like and what things you have only been influenced on — the more that you get to know yourself, the better that you will feel about living alone.

Time Zones are put in place as a standardiztion for time in certain areas. They usually break up areas like the boarders of countries but in some cases as in the case of the United States there are several time Zones in one country.

When you see a conventional clock, you spot only 12 hours. However, the day is divided into 24 hours. The division occurs at midday. Post meridian and ante meridian are Latin terms that refer to the post midday or before midday respectively. Now, when it is post midday or pm, and 12 on the clock, you see that it is afternoon.

Hence, 12 pm becomes midday. The other time it is 12 o clock is before midday and that is at night. Hence, this is regarded as 12 am. This is why the 12 am on the clock s associated with midnight.

The question was not if an "exempt" employee is eligible for overtime.

How an employee is paid, e.i."salaried," does not determine overtime eligibility.

There are a number of ways people can be fashionable while keeping it simple. The first rule is to not get stuck in a trend rut. While staying in fashion is important, purchasing items that really will only be fashionable for a few seasons will keep you up on the latest fashions, but your wardrobe budget will be extremely expensive. After the style is no longer fashionable, you are left with a closet of retro stuff.




The best way to avoid this is to purchase clothing (jeans, shirts, coats, dresses) that are absent of any particular trend. Then, accessorize the clothing with scarves, belts, hand bags, shoes, hair accessories, and shoes.

At the same time, this does not mean you have to discard keeping up with trends, but when purchasing items consider whether you can wear the item in a few years when the trend has surely passed.




Another fashion tip is to spend more money on quality items that will last you a couple of seasons, as opposed to shopping the discounts but not paying attention to the sturdiness of the material. Coats, shoes, trousers, and hand bags are major items that consumers should splurge on if the item is made of good, sturdy material.

Really, fashion is a personal choice, and keeping your wardrobe current is a balance between finding current fashions that are durable and will not look dated years later.

It is too far away to tell whether Hilary Clinton will attempt the presidency for a third time. However, I think that it is unlikely that she will try in the next election. The main reason is because she insulted the entire Democratic party when she lost. She blamed them publicly. That often leaves a bad taste in the mouth.


However only time will tell because often times people will forgive and forget. It seems that it would take a lot of forgiving for an entire Democratic party to forgive and forget when she publicly blamed them. Also, the party may feel that she would not win the election again. So, they may try for another candidate that stands a better chance of winning.
