Video/Podcast - Introduction to the U.S. Time Zones and DST?
This video podcast is based on conversations that we often have in US Culture Awareness Training programs preparing Indian offshore teams to understand American approaches to time management and the bi-yearly time change. This screen shot accompanying this podcast demonstrates what happens to clocks during 'fall back' in November- where we actually go back in time, gaining one extra hour (in contrast to spring forward, where we appear to lose one hour).
