How do clocks help the society?
Clocks help society to co-ordinate its activities, and to navigate. Clocks contribute to effectiveness and efficiency, and enable efficiency to be measured and monitored Clocks enable us to have a tangible and standardardised and explicit representation of duration. In the absense of clocks, time would seem to run at different speeds for different people, and for us, at different times, depending on our activity or lack of it.

What is the meaning of spring forward fall back?
That is a mnemonic device to help people remember which direction to adjust their clocks for Daylight Saving Time (a.k.a. Summer Time). Normally Daylight Saving Time starts in the spring; at that time clocks are advanced one hour (except for one island in the south Pacific Ocean that adjusts their clocks a half hour ahead for Daylight Saving Time). At the end of DST in the fall, clocks are adjusted backward one hour.

How to Repair a Clock?
How To Repair A Clock Clocks are an essential part of anyone's lives as they help people keep track of time and avoid being late for such things as work, appointments, meetings and school. When clocks break, especially if they are precious heirlooms like grandfather clocks, people will want to fix them immediately. Many grandfather clocks are family heirlooms meant to be handed down from one generation to another. Although they are carefully designed to last a long time, occasionally something happens, and they need repairs. Check The Clock's Warranty People should first check to see if their grandfather clock is under warranty before they begin to repair it. Many new grandfather clocks come with some form of warranty. If it is still under warranty, people need to read the warranty carefully. Warranties will tell people what procedures to follow if their clocks need repairing. If the clock does not have a warranty, people may choose to either repair it themselves or take it to a clock repair shop. They can find local shops in the yellow pages or online. How Can People Fix Clocks Themselves? For those people, who would like to fix their clocks themselves, they should conduct a little online research first. There are many websites that explain in detail how to repair clocks. They will tell people what to do if the clock is running too fast or too slow, and they will also explain to them what to do if the pendulum will not swing or if the chimes are not working properly. Many of these sites provide consumers with helpful videos that take people step-by-step through the various processes of fixing their clocks. Finding Parts For Grandfather Clocks For people, who need to replace broken parts to a grandfather clock, there are many shops and online websites where they can find the parts that they need. These parts are also occasionally available at auction sites online, as well. If the movement on the grandfather clock stops working, people can replace it from a business specializing in clock movements. These can be found in one's yellow pages or with a quick search online. Although it is possible to fix a grandfather clock's movement, it is much cheaper to replace it than to fix it.
