Daylight saving time, suggested by President Roosevelt, was imposed to conserve fuel, and could be traced back to World War I, when Congress imposed one standard time on the United States to enable the country to better utilize resources, following the European model. The 1918 Standard Time Act was meant to be in effect for only seven months of the year--and was discontinued nationally after the war. But individual states continued to turn clocks ahead one hour in spring and back one hour in fall. The World War II legislation imposed daylight saving time for the entire nation for the entire year. It was repealed Sept. 30, 1945, when individual states once again imposed their own "standard" time. It was not until 1966 that Congress passed legislation setting a standard time that permanently superceded local habits. (Taken from the History Channel)
Why do we still do it?
By transferring an hour of daylight from the crack of dawn to the evening, more people will be able to enjoy it. It benefits the environment by saving energy, and it reduces traffic accidents by providing more light for times of high traffic. It is nice for all of us who are at MSOE all day to get that extra hour, right?

Gelato (Italian pronunciation: [dʒeˈlaːto]; plural: gelati) is the Italian word for ice cream, derived from the Latin word "gelātus" (meaning frozen). In American English this word commonly refers to varieties of ice cream made in a traditional Italian style. Gelato is made with milk, cream, various sugars, and flavoring such as fresh fruit and nutpurees. It is generally lower in calories, fat and sugar than ice cream.

College students are often expected to write research articles on a regular basis. Depending on their specific area of study, the manner in which these articles should be written may vary quite dramatically. Typically, students receive instructions on article topic, but no directions on the actual writing style itself. Typically, writing styles are classified as being focused on the humanities, sciences, or social sciences.
