How Long Ago Was June 28 2022?


On June 28th, 2022 – which fell on a Tuesday and represented week 26 of 2022 – one year, two months and 27 days had passed since that eventful Tuesday morning in 2022.

Movie releases in 2022 included The Batman, The Lost City, Morbius, and Jurassic World Dominion. Glass Animals, Lizzo, and Interplanetary Criminal were some of the musical artists featured. Paul Sorvino from Goodfellas died at 83.

Time Zones

The world is divided into a variety of standard time zones. Most are based on the Greenwich Meridian; others have unique origins. Most time zones have their offset from UTC (Universal Coordinated Time); generally speaking, time zones change by one hour for every 15-degree difference in longitude, but this doesn’t always hold; many countries feature multiple time zones that often differ significantly from one another.

At one time, these differences were even more remarkable. It wasn’t until 1929 that most of the world adopted a universal set of rules for allocating time zones; Charles F. Dowd proposed such rules for North American railroads in 1863 based on geographic features such as parts of the Appalachian Mountains.

However, this system was never widely accepted, and most countries worldwide waited until the 1930s before adopting rules based on the Greenwich meridian. These rules became more accepted; today, most nations use them.

Most modern zones are established around either the Greenwich meridian or the equator. This makes sense given that the earth rotates and tilts about the sun, making it only visible at specific points along its journey around Earth. Furthermore, rotation and tilt affect how much of its rays fall upon different areas at any one time, which impacts the local climate.

Different regions experience seasonal shifts at various points throughout the year, contributing significantly to why there are multiple time zones.

As well as seasonal effects, many countries also experience additional factors that affect their time zone boundaries, including daylight savings time (DST) being applied during certain holidays or events and factors like climate and population density.

Due to its vast size and terrain, Russia may be divided into multiple time zones to better organize and administer them within its borders. This helps with both the organization and management of time zones within Russia.

As well as these essential boundaries, numerous zones have been created and moved as required. Some changes only affected a single region, while others involved significant shifts. For instance, Tomsk Oblast in Russia received its new zone to accommodate for the Asian/Novosibirsk time zone shift to +10. Additionally, two hours were subtracted from Magadan. Also new, zic has been updated with the slimmer format for creating TZif files, which should make this faster when creating required files; you can test this by running zic with the command ‘zic -b slim.’

Daylight Savings Time

As Daylight Savings Time rolls back this weekend to kick off winter, many Americans may awaken in darkness. Though generally considered beneficial in terms of saving energy, its long-term health implications remain contentious – some individuals experience physical symptoms such as strokes and heart attacks after Daylight Savings Time shifts are implemented; others simply find it challenging to adjust.

“Daylight saving time fatigue” can be defined as adjusting our bodies twice annually when we switch back and forth from daylight saving time, forcing our internal clocks to sync with a different schedule. The resultant disruption may impact work performance, school performance, health issues, and energy use costs; additionally, it may incur extra expenditure on electricity usage as a result of more hours being used per month during daylight savings time than anticipated – not forgetting any negative repercussions for mental wellbeing during darker months of the year.

Adjusting our clocks can also disrupt sleep patterns, leading to decreased quality and quantity of restful slumber or, in extreme cases, insomnia or other sleeping disorders. According to recent research, many experience headaches and irritability for several days following clock adjustment. According to this research paper, these disruptions of our natural rhythms may also hurt mood and memory.

Benjamin Franklin introduced clock-changing practices for Parisian audiences during the 17th century. His letter, published in The Journal of Paris, suggested saving 64,050,000 pounds of candle wax by rising with the sun instead. Though initially received with ridicule by readers in Paris, Franklin’s idea eventually spread throughout North America and eventually made headlines as “flipping the clocks back.”

Since then, changing clocks to daylight saving time (DST) has become widespread worldwide. About 70 percent of humanity uses DST; however, some advocates are pushing for a permanent shift to standard time.

The Permanent Daylight Saving Time Coalition is lobbying for legislation to make daylight saving time (DST) permanent, which it claims would save approximately $6 billion annually in energy costs and has over 2 million supporters online.

In March 2022, the U.S. Senate passed legislation that allows states to opt into permanent DST. Before becoming law, however, approval from both the House of Representatives and the President must also be obtained before it takes effect.

National Conference of State Legislatures reports that 19 states have introduced legislation to implement year-round DST. Unfortunately, to implement this change, Congress must amend the Uniform Time Act; until that happens, we’ll continue with March and November changes as before – although if you prefer having your clock change less frequently, there are ways you can get more sleep!

Summer Time

June 28, 2022, was a historic date, marking one of the warmest seasons of the year and providing ample opportunities for outdoor activities like swimming, gardening, fishing, camping, boating, and stargazing. Summer also marks family picnics, reunions, backyard barbeques, and vacations – the warm weather provides ideal conditions for such pursuits!

Meteorological summer officially starts June 1; however, many choose to acknowledge its astronomical start on the summer solstice (when the Sun appears highest in the sky). Sunrises become earlier before this day arrives, while night hours are shorter.

As Earth is orbited elliptically by the Sun, its position can shift throughout the year, causing variations in solstices across countries separated by approximately 23.5 degrees latitude. Therefore, exact dates vary significantly for different countries based on your space.

June 2022 saw a continuation of a scorching and dry pattern across southern regions, furthering a heatwave that started late last month. Temperatures stayed above average across most locations, and several places saw their hottest June ever recorded; also some areas saw their second warmest summer in 128 years of weather records; overall, 2022’s meteorological summer ranked third warmest since 1891; it remains too early to determine if this year may surpass last summer but some indicators point towards it becoming so.
