Where did clocks originate from?
The Song-era Chinese had built elaborate clocks centuries before the Europeans, but the West was the first part of the world where clocks became a regular part of urban life. The word "clock" comes from the word for bell. The first mechanical clocks that appeared around 1300 in western Europe were simply bells with an automatic mechanical device to strike the correct number of hours.

When an original creditor sells a charged off account to another company does this start the 7 year clock ticking all over again?
%DETAILS% No. When an original creditor sells a charged off accounts to another company. I asked the Credit bureau to investgate. However, the creditor is unable to remove it from my credit report. does this start the 7 year clock ticking all over again from the date the credit bureau investigate?
Answer . \nHold the 'clock' button until it starts to blink, adjust the time and poke the 'clock' button to accept the time.
Answer . Check the fuses first. The clock is always on and as such is connected to one fuse. The radio only comes on when the key is in acc or on and is connected to a different fuse.
The clock on a 2004 Civic can be set using the preset buttons. Holddown the scan button on the radio and it will allow the clock to beadjusted.
Just go to a junkyard and buy a whole unit. Fixing the clock in one of these is probably about impossible. Most yards sell these for under $20 VBD New Andwer Headline Setting the electronic radio clock differs a bit between unit types and years, but it is done either by pulling carefully the scan… button or volume button with the radio off - try the scan first (hours) - and the search button or tuning button - again, try the search button first (minutes). Do not pull them off, just lightly. Some units have a separate "set" button that must be pushed; then the time can be changed by simultaneously pushing the scan (hours) and search (minutes) buttons.

As regards acrylic is it synthetic or non-synthetic and how is it produced and what is its place of origin its characteristics and its advantages and disadvantages when used in making a clock?
Acrylic plastic is a synthetic polymer. It was developed in the late 1920's "in various labs" meaning there was a lot of parallel development and there is no "one place" or "one time" when it popped into existence. It is attractive, tough, durable, soft enough to work with standard hand and machine …tools, reasonably priced and widely available. But it can be scratched easily and may not come in the "right" color or shape as stock for a construction project. Good luck with yours. ( Full Answer )
A clock is a device to measure the passing of time . Early clocks used water dripping into a container with measurements inscribed on the sides . Later when clockwork was invented , a weight on a string or chain was used to pull a system of gears round , with hands or pointers connected to the relev…ant gears to indicate against a circular scale(face) . Later still a thin steel strip was wound tightly into a coil to replace the weight on a string , allowing more compact clocks . In order to control the speed the gears turned at , an escapement , an oscillating wheel and arm arrangement............or a pendulum , the swing of which is decided by its length and the mass of weight at the free end...............were used . Since the discovery of electricity , there were numerous new ways to devise clocks . For battery clocks a transistor oscillator generates a pulse at regular intervals which can be used to step the hands on . For mains power , the public grid has a closely controlled frequency which can been used as a time reference........... Early digital clocks had the numbers marked on gear driven drums which rotated in the same manner as the hands on the original clocks , or cards or tabs were flipped over to change the numbers . Most digital clocks today use a seven segment display . These became popular with the advent of integrated circuits . They are so-called because with just seven bars in the shape of a figure eight , it is possible to generate any number from zero to nine by turning on or off the correct bars . Special integrated circuits(silicon chips) were produced to match these displays . Some clocks today use liquid crystal displays , the numerals are made up of tiny tiny dots if you look close , complex electronics drive the display , but they still all need a time reference to control them . The most accurate clocks use an atomic source of which there are several in the world . You can make your computer syncronize itself with one of these over the internet . Radio signals are also transmitted in some countries to allow a good time reference ...... Some clocks are battery operated, while older clocks have gears inside. ( Full Answer )

Clock speed is the term that refers to the number of changes in voltage in one second. For instance, 1 GHz means that the actually voltage across the component in question has a power supply that switches from 0 volts to 5 volts, and back to 0 volts, 1 giga (10^9) times every second. Clock cycle… simply refers to a single transition from 0 volts to 5 volts and back. Clock cycles refer to the central processing unit's processing speed. It's measured in hertz -- current processors have clock speeds in the gigahertz range. ( Full Answer )
In the late 1200's many clocks were very heavy and large ornateobjects. The clocks were divided into sizes, and the termgrandfather was deemed the name of the largest clocks of the time.
The first clock was an astronomical clock. It was built between 1352 and 1354. However, it stopped working around the beginning of the 16th century.
Clocks are round because it is easier to put all the numbers on it and it easy to tell where it is.
How do you repair or replace the clock display in a 1989 f-150 original equipt amfm radio that has gone dim?

An Anaphoric Clock is a "clock" that shows all 365 days of the year, months of the year, and zodiac signs. It was invented in Ancient Greece. It is normally made out of bronze.
In the nineteenth century many workplaces introduced a "time clock" system for their employees. Each worker had a card which they would put into a machine which recorded the time they started and finished work. (This was known as "clocking on" and "clocking off"). This enabled their working hours to… be recorded and used to calculate their wages. Once a worker "clocked in" he or she was "on the clock". When a worker finished work and "clocked out" he or she was "off the clock". ( Full Answer )

Some are slow or fast. . You have to take them down to change the time. Hope these help! ( Full Answer )
It is a more accurate atomic clock that uses caesium atom frequency to measure time.
