For the List Events endpoint, the implicit time period is currently "the last hour." This may change from time to time, so your application should look to the min_date and/or max_date properties of the root element of the response for the time period applied.
Often, an implicit time period is not used, when the request is limited to, for example, a single user or a single story.
The end of the implicit time period can be found in the timestamp property of the root element of the response--it'll be close to the time when the request was received.

  CalendarHome.com - Geologic time scale - Calendar Encyclopedia
The geologic time scale is used by geologists and other scientists to describe the timing and relationships between events that have occurred during the history of the Earth.
Different spans of time on the time scale are usually delimited by major geologic or paleontologic events, such as mass extinctions.
For example, the boundary between the Cretaceous period and the Palaeogene period is defined by the extinction event that marked the demise of the dinosaurs and of many marine species.

  Time - ExampleProblems.com
Time is also a matter of significant social importance, having economic value ("time is money") as well as personal value due to an awareness of the limited time in each day and in our lives.
Regularly recurring events and objects with apparently periodic motion have long served as standards for units of time - such as the apparent motion of the sun across the sky, the phases of the moon, the swing of a pendulum.
However, some aspects of time use are relatively stable over long periods of time, such as the amount of time spent traveling to work, which despite major changes in transport, has been observed to be about 20-30 minutes one-way for a large number of cities over a long period of time.

 Earth Floor: Geologic Time
The ages in years of the different geological time periods are found by measuring the absolute ages of many rocks from all of the different periods.
The steps of the Staircase of Time are drawn to be almost the same size, so you might think that the time periods are the same length, but they are not.
The absolute ages of rocks taken from the different time periods have shown that the time periods were of greatly differing lengths.

This list is poorly defined, unverified or indiscriminate.
Geologic time units are (in order of descending specificity) eons, eras, periods, epochs, and ages; and the corresponding chronostratigraphic units, which measure "rock-time", are eonothems, erathems, systems, series, and stages.
A common characteristic of most known calendars is that they measure time in relation to a particular point in history, known as the epoch date.

 Astronomical Times
Several important time scales still follow the rotation of the earth, most notably civil and sidereal time, but of these are now derived from atomic time through a combination of earth rotation theory and actual measurements of the earth's rotation and orientation.
Terrestrial Dynamic Time, which is tied to atomic time by a constant offset of 32.184 seconds, replaced ET at the beginning of 1984.
It might seem strange that UT1, a solar time, is determined by measuring the earth's rotation with respect to distant celestial objects, and GMST, a sidereal time, is derived from it.

 Dragonlance Nexus: Recommended Dragonlance Reading List - Products
While importance is a judgment call, we looked at which novels had the most impact on a particular time period, or covered important events that shaped world history—rather than events that were specific to a particular region of the world or some of the smaller stories.
Despite the fact that the setting has evolved significantly since the first novels were published, the War of the Lance time period is where the setting has its roots, and this is known on the list as the 'Classic' time period.
The Classic time period takes place 9,300 years after the beginning of recorded history, and the Historical period includes any novels that take place prior to 350 AC (roughly the start of the War of the Lance).

This means that your time data will appear along your x-axis with the most recent to the right of the previous month – a useful tool when graphing or charting market trends over time.
With relative time periods, if you save the report and then reload it, you'll get the time periods relative to the current time period, not the period in effect when you saved the report.
For example, if the base period is January 2005, there are 3 previous periods selected, and there is a lag of 2, then the months on the report would be January 2005, November 2004, September 2004, and July 2004.

 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.
