A calendar is a system of organizing days for commercial, social, religious or administrative purposes. This is done by giving names to periods of time, usually days, weeks, months and years. Periods in a calendar are typically synchronized with the cycle of the sun or the moon.

Asked in Thanksgiving, Calendar

How often does Thanksgiving fall on November 28?

User Avatar
The repeating pattern for number of years apart that Thanksgiving falls on November 28th is 6, 5, 6, 11. This year it falls on November 28, 2019. The last time Thanksgiving fell on the 28th was 2013 (6 years ago), and the time before that was 2002 (11 years before that). The next time Thanksgiving will fall on the 28th will be 2024 (5 years from now) and the time after that will be 2030 (6 years later), and again in 2041 (11 years later), and so on.

Would a four-day workweek make people more or less productive?

User Avatar
Trials of four-day weeks have had both results, so there’s no simple answer. In August of 2019, Microsoft Japan conducted a test where they moved 2,300 office workers to a four-day workweek for one month in an effort to improve efficiency. The report they released this November stated that there was a 39.9 percent increase overall in sales per worker, with 92 percent of the workers responding positively to the change. Another positive example comes from a San Francisco-based software company called Monograph. In 2016, it implemented a four-day workweek where employees can choose which day they want to take off. Moe Amaya, one of Monograph’s cofounders, told HuffPost that so far it’s been very successful and that there are "no plans to change, potentially ever." While there are numerous other studies and examples citing the potential benefits of a shorter workweek, most agree that the resistance from American companies to adopt the practice comes down to habit and the bottom line—a four-day workweek could put companies at a competitive disadvantage to those still working the traditional five. One notable failure of the four-day workweek was when a U.S. programming education company called Treehouse tried it in 2015. They went back to 40-hour weeks just a year later. "There was a lack of work, like, literally a lack of work ethic," Treehouse founder Ryan Carson later said to explain the decision.
