Ask Slashdot: Is it Time To Call Time on Time Zones?

An anonymous reader shares a report [may be paywalled]: Anyone who has struggled to schedule a conference call across multiple time zones should pity the poor residents of Indiana. For decades, the Midwestern US state has been in flux over whether to observe Central or Eastern time. Some counties even switched time zones twice in as many years during the mid-2000s. This situation must be particularly baffling to the people of India and China, whose countries span thousands of miles yet obey a si...

History of Canada's BeaverTail donut

The sweet aroma as you approach the little red-roofed chalet signals fresh pastries straight ahead. But these aren’t just any baked goods. They’re a giant, deep-fried delicacy called BeaverTails, and they’re as symbolically Canadian as the buck-toothed rodent they’re named after. They’re not real beaver tails, of course (although a smaller number of people eat those as well). This BeaverTail is a ball of whole-wheat dough that’s hand-stretched into a long, flat oval — the same shape as its na...

Why cold winter weather cancels roughly 60,000 flights a year in the US

Each year, cold winter weather leads to 60,000 flight cancellations in the United States, costing airlines and airports an estimated $3 billion. But freezing cold temperatures aren't a problem for planes, which excel in cold, dense air. The real problems happen before planes even leave the ground — clearing snow and ice off of runways and planes can create major delays. Following is a transcript of the video: Each year, about 60,000 flights get canceled because of bad winter weather, whic...

Sex abuse claims brought against 700 Catholic clergy in Illinois

Exiting US governor signs laws limiting power of his successor

The Republican governor of Wisconsin signed into law Friday a package of bills that limit the powers of his Democratic successor, who promised a court challenge. The measures were passed by Republicans during a lame-duck session of the Midwestern US state's legislature last week, in what they said was an effort to level the power balance with the Democrat who will take over the governor's office in January. Tony Evers defeated incumbent Governor Scott Walker in the November midterm elections -...

Flint's water getting cleaner -- but not yet safe

New tests show water quality improving in Flint, the Midwestern US city hit by a massive lead contamination scandal, officials said Wednesday, but it is not yet cleared of the toxin. It has been more than two years since lead from aging pipes first began to leach into the drinking water of the hard-scrabble city, when officials switched the water source to a more corrosive one as a cost saving effort. Michigan Governor Rick Snyder told a press conference that 95 percent of recent tests of the mo...
