It's time to fall back

While today's image may look like a scene from the Doctor Who TV show, its actually an image of workers maintaining Big Ben's clock face. But like The Doctor, the show's main character, today we're all time travelers. This morning we fell back (or will fall back for night owls and insomniacs reading this before 2 AM) in time an hour for the end of Daylight Saving Time. And like changes to Doctor Who, this change isn't without controversy. Since the 1970s, many different studies have tried to quantify the advantages or disadvantages that come with falling back and springing forward, as yet there's no definitive answer on if the scheme is better or worse for us.
