  Central Standard Time Zone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Canada, this time zone includes all of Manitoba, nearly all of Saskatchewan, a slice of western Ontario, and central Nunavut.

Also an hour of syndicated programming time (between 7pm-8pm in the Eastern time zone) is lost since prime time starts at 7pm Central, forcing TV stations to choose from airing their 6pm newscast and a program or airing shows in 'blocks' preferred by syndicators (i.e.

Standard time within each time zone is an integral number of hours offset from a time scale called Universal Time, Coordinated (abbreviated UTC), maintained by a large number of very precise "atomic clocks" at laboratories around the world, including the U.S. Naval Observatory.
History of Standard Time in the U.S. Standard time in time zones was instituted in the U.S. and Canada by the railroads on 18 November 1883.
Standard time in time zones was not established in U.S. law until the Act of March 19, 1918, sometimes called the Standard Time Act.

As an example, if you were driving west through the state of Kansas in the Central Standard Time zone of the United States and you were about to enter the state of Colorado in the Mountain Standard Time zone you would have to set your watch back one hour.
Because of these time zones the rotation of the Earth allows some sky phenomena to occur at essentially the same time (+/- 30 minutes) no matter where you are on the planet.
Time zones span quite a large distance and there is a reason why I noted above that the times are essentially accurate to within +/- 30 minutes.

 International standard date and time notation
A single leap second 23:59:60 is inserted into the UTC time scale every few years as announced by the International Earth Rotation Service in Paris, to keep UTC from wandering away more than 0.9 s from the less constant astronomical time scale UT1, which is defined by the actual rotation of the earth.
In case an unambiguous representation of time is required, 00:00 is usually the preferred notation for midnight and not 24:00.
Please consider the 12h time to be a relic from the dark ages when Roman numerals were used, the number zero had not yet been invented and analog clocks were the only known form of displaying a time.

Remember that the time zone centers around longitudes that are divisible by 15 deg.
The Central Standard time zone centers on 90 deg West.
Therefore, 75 deg, 105 deg and 120 deg must all be centers for time zones (all divisible by 15) and pretty close by, since Iowa State is at 90 deg W.

 How Outlook handles time zones for meeting requests
Outlook calculates Greenwich mean time by using the computer's clock time, plus or minus the local time zone adjustment, minus (depending upon the time of year) the daylight-saving time adjustment.
Assume someone in the central standard time zone during the summer months (when daylight-saving time is in effect), wishes to schedule a meeting at 3:00 P.M. (their local time), with a user in the Pacific time zone.
When the attendee receives the meeting request, Outlook calculates the current local time by using the message's Greenwich mean time stamp, plus or minus the local time zone adjustment, plus (depending upon the time of year) the daylight-saving time adjustment.

 SitNews - Chemical Eye on a Time Warp by Preston MacDougall
That's because, while they are separated by only 45 miles, few of them straight or horizontal, Chattanooga is at the western edge of the Eastern Standard Time zone, and Monteagle is at the eastern edge of the Central Standard Time zone.
This artificial seam in the world's standardized time zones ultimately arises from the fact that clocks and calendars keep track of two very different things.
By international agreement, the second is defined as the time it takes a cesium-133 atom, at absolute zero temperature, to oscillate between its two lowest electronic states nine billion, one hundred and ninety-two million, six-hundred and thirty-one thousand, seven-hundred and seventy times.

NST is known as Newfoundland Daylight Time (NDT) during daylight saving time, and has one hour added to make it 2½ hours behind UTC (UTC -2.5).
