No more time change? Senate passes bill to make Daylight Saving Time permanent
The Sunshine Protection Act passed the chamber unanimously. The bill still needs to pass the House and be signed by President Joe Biden to become law. The US Senate passed the measure that would make Daylight Saving Time permanent.
“If we do switch to Daylight Saving Time year-round, I would like also to make sure that municipalities where children are walking to school do their very best to slow traffic down, make sure there are sidewalks,” said Lightbody.
Supporters say the change could prevent a slight uptick in car crashes that typically occurs around the time changes and point to studies showing a small increase in the rate of heart attacks and strokes soon after the time change. They argue the measure could help businesses such as golf courses that could draw more use with more evening daylight.
Sportsbook Wants Investigation Into Inside Information On Bets Related To Tom Brady Unretiring
Multiple sportsbooks have come forward claiming that Tom Brady’s plan to come out of his very brief retirement was leaked before the quarterback made his announcement. They report that someone bet “big money” on Tampa Bay to win the Super Bowl on Thursday at 50-1, then made two more big bets on the Buccaneers at 30-1 and 25-1. After Brady’s announcement, the Buccaneers’ odds dropped to 10-1 to win the Super Bowl and 5-1 to win the NFC at Westgate. Over at South Point, the Buccaneers became 4-1 favorites to win the Super Bowl.
Ken Griffey Jr. Will Be The Sixth Highest Paid Player For The Reds In 2022
Cincinnati will still have Joey Votto, Mike Moustakas, Shogo Akiyama, Luis Castillo, and Tyler Mahle at the top of their payroll. However, it is the sixth name on that list that is really causing a stir: Ken Griffey Jr. Griffey will earn $3.59 million in 2022 from the Reds. Back in 2000, the Reds signed Junior to a nine-year, $112.5 million contract.
Wait, if it was a nine-year contract, how do the Reds still owe Griffey $3.59 million in 2022? Good question.
Around half of that $112.5 million was deferred until the years 2009 to 2024.
California City Could Declare Chick-Fil-A “Public Nuisance”
|Santa Barbara, California, is close to dubbing Chick-fil-A a “public nuisance” due to long drive-thru lines that often has cars filled with hungry customers backed into the street for hours at a time. At peak-volume, the drive-through blocks one lane of traffic for as much as 90 minutes on weekdays and for as much as 155 minutes on Saturdays, according to a city traffic report.
“Chick-fil-A has a good problem here. They are so successful, they have outgrown their site. It’s possible they were oversized for that site, to begin with,”
