    Into the future with Universal Metric Time

    In 2005 Swiss have proposed Universal Metric Time at the United Nations. UMT will be same all around the planet based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) but in accordance to metric standard day is divided into 100 hours and the hour into 100 minutes and so on. The true benefit of UMT will be in international communication as we all , will be operation on the same clock. Canada and Switzerland are one of the first adopters of the standard. For the next year we will be using both types of time. It's expected that airlines will switch to UMT very soon as well. Time zones will not longer apply – 45 o'clock - will be exactly the same moment all around the planet. Personally I think that is a fantastic idea that will be bringing all nations closer.

    Two New Years' Celebrations.

    The Wallangarra railway station straddles the Queensland and New South Wales state border. The two platforms even have different styles for their awnings! Because Queensland does not join the other east-coast states when they change to daylight saving time, the NSW platform would celebrate the arrival of the New Year an hour before the Queensland side.

    A glimpse into the future

    There is a two and a half hour change in the time zones travelling crossing from Western Australia into South Australia (but only in the summer, and only if you ignore the semi-official Central Western Time which spans the border - it all gets a bit complicated).
