TIMES ARE CHANGING: Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall is pushing for a quicker end to daylight saving.Daylight savingsAt least, the month of April 2017will end daylight saving and time will be back to a bit of sanity.

Originally, this was to be a month each end as explained and understoodto theburdens ofdaylight savingby MPsAdam Marshall Armidale, Kevin Anderson TamworthandKevin Humphries, Inverell.

MrMarshall added that these were not trivial situationsbut Liberal member for Kiama Gareth Ward had no care or understanding, just the worn-out jibe and on record “curtains will not fade” and “cows cannot tell the time”.

Of course cows cannot tell the time – as the farmer at ThePocket, west of Billinudgel, told of thetroubles he had of milking his guernsey cows inearly morning hours!DST theclock forward, head to the bales but instead of the cows ready waiting at the bales for milking, they were still asleep way down the paddocks!

So, still dark and whether rain, hail, mud, he had to go fetch them every time!To try and wake them and get them movingin that early morning,was darn near impossible!Inthe afternoon – in the heat of the afternoon in’new’ time!

Circadian rhythm and health is always ignored. Why? From: Russell Foster Prof of Circadian neuroscience, University of Oxford: The physiology, metabolism and behaviour of organisms, including us, are aligned to this daily cycle through internal clocks. During sleep, many essential activities occur including cell repair, toxin clearance, memory consolidation and information processing by the brain.

“With more darkness in the mornings duringDST months, sleep patterns are delayed, which means teenagers and young adults tend to sleep later and go to bed later, building up a sleep debt”, Professor Leon Lackfrom Flinders University SAu., said.

Jillian Spring, BillinudgelSouth Australian blackoutI notice that our member of parliament Barnaby Joyce has been weighing into the cause of the South Australian blackout of all things.Mr Joyce blamed South Australia’s rush to renewables for the blackout when all the experts said it was a transmission system failure. Socompletely wrong Mr Joyce.

The blackout was caused by savage storms with high winds that resulted in 80,000 lightning strikes, including a direct hit on a power station, and brought down 22 transmission poles.

So it had nothing with renewable energy, it was the weather.

It exposes Mr Joyce for what he is, a person who will use a crisis for his own agenda because he doesn’t like renewable energy.

The worrying thing is that with climate change there are going to be a lot more weather events like this and it means that we are simply not prepared.

So Barnaby the problem isn’t renewable energy, it’s coal.

Reliance on coal for electricity generation is fuelling climate change and that means more storms, like the one in South Australia, are going to become regular events as the planet continuous to warm.

Dr Robin Gunning,North TamworthNational Stroke WeekOn behalf oftheStroke Foundation I would liketothankthethousands of Australians who helped us educatethecommunity abouttheimportance of knowingthesigns of stroke this National Stroke Week.

With Stroke Week now wrapped up for 2016, it is vital we remember strokes don’t just happen one week oftheyear. Every ten minutes an Australian has a stroke.

Stroke is largely preventable, but we know that almost 50,000 new and recurring strokes will happen this year.It will takethecombined efforts ofthecommunity, health professionals and governmentstoachieve this mission. I know together we can prevent, treat and beat stroke.
