About Official time for North America - Adak (Alaska)

Farmers continued to dislike DST, and many countries repealed it after the war
Britain was an exception: it retained DST nationwide but over the years adjusted transition dates for several reasons, including special rules during the 1920s and 1930s to avoid clock shifts on Easter mornings.
The U.S. was more typical: Congress repealed DST after 1919
President Woodrow Wilson, like Willett an avid golfer, vetoed the repeal twice but his second veto was overridden.
Only a few U.S. cities retained DST locally thereafter, Wilson's successor Warren G
Harding opposed DST as a "deception"
Reasoning that people should instead get up and go to work earlier in the summer, he ordered District of Columbia federal employees to start work at 08:00 rather than 09:00 during summer 1922
Many businesses followed suit though many others did not; the experiment was not repeated.
Since Germany's adoption in 1916 the world has seen many enactments, adjustments, and repeals of DST, with similar politics involved.
In the mid-1980s, Clorox (parent of Kingsford Charcoal) and 7-Eleven provided the primary funding for the Daylight Saving Time Coalition behind the 1987 extension to U.S.
DST, and both Idaho senators voted for it based on the premise that during DST fast-food restaurants sell more French fries, which are made from Idaho potatoes; In 2005, the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association and the National Association of Convenience Stores successfully lobbied for the 2007 extension to U.S.
DST. Although daylight saving time is considered to be correct, daylight savings time is commonly used.
The form daylight saving time uses the present participle saving as an adjective, as in labor saving device; the first two words are sometimes hyphenated, as in daylight-saving time
The common variants daylight savings time and daylight savings use savings by analogy to savings account
Daylight time is also common., whereas in Italy the term is ora legale, that is, legal time.
The name of local time typically changes when DST is observed
American English replaces standard with daylight: for example, Pacific Standard Time (PST) becomes Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)
British English calls UK time British Summer Time (BST), and typically inserts summer into other time zones, e.g
Central European Time (CET) becomes Central European Summer Time (CEST)
Abbreviations do not always change: for example, many (though not all) Australians say that Eastern Standard Time (EST) becomes Eastern Summer Time (also EST).
