Daylight Saving Time
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME (abbreviated DST), also sometimes erroneously referred to as DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME, is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months so that evening daylight lasts longer, while sacrificing normal sunrise times. Typically, regions that use daylight saving time adjust clocks forward one hour close to the start of spring and adjust them backward in the autumn to standard time. American inventor and politician Benjamin Franklin
Benjamin Franklin
proposed a form of daylight time in 1784. He wrote an essay "An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light" to the editor of The Journal of Paris , suggesting, somewhat jokingly, that Parisians could economize candle usage by getting people out of bed earlier in the morning, making use of the natural morning light instead. New Zealander George Hudson proposed the idea of daylight saving in 1895

Pacific Time Zone
The PACIFIC TIME ZONE observes standard time by subtracting eight hours from Coordinated Universal Time
Coordinated Universal Time
( UTC−8
UTC−8
). During daylight saving time , its time offset is UTC−7
UTC−7
and is thus based on the mean solar time of the 105th meridian west of the Greenwich Observatory . In the United States and Canada, this time zone is generically called the PACIFIC TIME ZONE (PT). Specifically, it uses PACIFIC STANDARD TIME (PST) when observing standard time (late autumn to early spring), and PACIFIC DAYLIGHT TIME (PDT) when observing daylight saving time (early spring to late autumn). Most of Canada uses daylight saving time . In Mexico

Time Zone
A TIME ZONE is a region of the globe that observes a uniform standard time for legal, commercial, and social purposes. Time
Time
zones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions because it is convenient for areas in close commercial or other communication to keep the same time. Most of the time zones on land are offset from Coordinated Universal Time
Time
(UTC) by a whole number of hours ( UTC−12 to UTC+14), but a few zones are offset by 30 or 45 minutes (for example Newfoundland Standard Time
Time
is UTC−03:30, Nepal
Nepal
Standard Time
Time
is UTC+05:45, and Indian Standard Time is UTC+05:30). Some higher latitude and temperate zone countries use daylight saving time for part of the year, typically by adjusting local clock time by an hour. Many land time zones are skewed toward the west of the corresponding nautical time zones

ZIP Code
ZIP CODES are a system of postal codes used by the United States Postal Service since 1963. The term ZIP, an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan, was chosen to suggest that the mail travels more efficiently, and therefore more quickly (zipping along), when senders use the code in the postal address . The basic format consists of five digits . An extended 'ZIP+4' code, introduced in 1983, includes the five digits of the ZIP Code, a hyphen , and four additional digits that determine a more specific location within a given ZIP Code. The term ZIP Code
ZIP Code
was originally registered as a servicemark by the U.S. Postal Service, but its registration has since expired. USPS style for ZIP is all caps and the "C" in "Code" is also capitalized, although style sheets for some publications use sentence case or lowercase
