Keep in mind to 'fall back' this weekend!

More sunlight improves sleep as Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, says neurologist

Do not forget to turn back the clock this weekend.

A recently released report from the University of Virginia that suggests there is an uptick in street crime, especially robbery, when clocks are turned back. That means the part of us that relies on natural cues like sunlight can get a little out of whack.

DST was introduced in the U.S.in 1918 as a wartime measure.

Some 70 countries around the world use daylight saving time.

During the second year of the USA program, daylight time was lifted between November and February, the darkest months of the year.

Tyrese blasts The Rock, cries over child custody dispute
Tyrese just raised the stakes of the feud to something he can't walk away from with his pride intact, announcing hat he won't participate in future Fast productions if The Rock is also cast.

In no secret that Canada, in general, has followed the United States in lockstep when it comes to making the most of daylight hours. Continued mild temperatures are forecast for Monday but showers are likely throughout the day and even a possibility of thunderstorms.

Daylight saving actually wasn't signed into law until 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson made it an official practice. States can exempt themselves from participation. For many years, DST was from the last Sunday in April until the last Sunday in October.

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 extended DST in the United States from 2 a.m. on the second Sunday in March until 2 a.m. on the first Sunday in November.

This tradition of springing forward and falling back is in place for most of the USA, with the exception of several places, including Hawaii and most of Arizona.

Daylight saving time is not observed by Arizona, Hawaii and four U.S. territories: American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
