  Second happy time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The second happy time was a phase in the Second Battle of the Atlantic during which Axis submarines attacked merchant shipping along the east coast of North America.
German submariners named it the happy time or the golden time as defence measures were weak and disorganised, and the U-boats were able to inflict massive damage with little risk.
By this time, the second wave of Type IX U-boats had arrived in American waters, and the third wave had reached its patrol area off the oil ports of the Caribbean.

 Second Battle of the Atlantic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Second Battle of the Atlantic was the longest continuous military campaign of World War II, running from 1939 right through to the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945, and was at its height from mid-1940 through to about the end of 1943.
They had some idea by this time that the mines used magnetic sensors, so they had everyone remove all metal, including their buttons, and made new tools out of non-magnetic brass.
ASDIC was unable to find U-boats on the surface where they spent the vast majority of their time, but with aircraft cover forcing them underwater, running to the Atlantic could be a somewhat dangerous operation.

 LiveScience.com - Extra Second Will be Added to 2005
The once-common "leap second" is the first in seven years and reflects the unpredictable nature of the planet's behavior.
Earth rotation time is falling behind atomic clock time," said Tom O'Brian, Chief of the Time and Frequency Division at the U.S. National Institution of Standards and Technology.
While time has been measured by the planet's rotation for thousands of years, it wasn't until 1949 that scientists developed a clock that kept perfect time.

 G4 - Feature - Only a Matter of Time
When the airborne clock was returned to Earth, she compared its time with the one that hadn't moved and found that time had moved a fraction of a second more slowly for the clock on board the plane.
The slowed time would not be noticeable to the traveler -- the same way time doesn't seem to pass more slowly when riding an airplane than it does when sitting on Earth.
Physicists explain part of the reason why time travel may be difficult to grasp is our perception is limited to a fairly moderate world where the laws of physics are not pushed to their limit.

 What is happiness?
Happiness, venture William James, the noted 19th century philosopher/psychologist, is reflected in the ratio of one's accomplishments to one's aspirations.
Happiness is being aware not only of the positive events that occur in your life but also that you yourself are the cause of these events--that you can create them, that you control their occurrence, and that you play a major role in the good things that happen to you.
Happiness isn't somewhere off in the future, but in this mornings phone conversation with someone seeking advice, in this noon's meal with a friend, in this evening's bedtime story with a child, in tonight's curling up with a good book.

For the 23rd time in history, scientists recently added a leap second to the calendar to reconcile two different kinds of timekeeping.
In 1967, they declared that the basic unit of time would be the second, defined as the duration of 9,192,631,770 cycles of an atom of the isotope cesium-133.
Without leap seconds, the sun would be overhead at midnight instead of noon by the year 5000.

 Mr Gutman: Second-time entrepreneurs
The first time around he was successful, but success came at a price, he had to submit to the terms of the world, which are harsh.
Second time entrepreneurs that were not successful face similar challenges, maybe ever more so.
It seems there could be hundreds of other factors in a failed second business attempt besides not working long hours and sleeping under your desk (the market, your product, a recession, poor execution, the wrong people, etc, etc).

 jwz - Happy Leap Second
This decision is widely complained about to this day, but its also somewhat understandable — it'd be somewhat gross to require libc have access to an up-to-date list of leap seconds just to handle localtime() Therefore the kernel's idea of time_t must be set after each leap second event.
However, the leap second was corrected by NTP during the daily run.
p-second.htm seems to confirm that: "If an NTP daemon detects a leap second announcement, it passes the announcement on to its clients, and notifies its own operating system clock of the upcoming leap second, if the operating system is aware of leap seconds.".

 Happy TIME
One of the most profound and prolific writers on the relationship of happiness (or joy, as he calls it) and faith is C.S. Lewis, some of whose writings are collected in The Joyful Christian.
Happiness is an imaginary condition, formerly often attributed by the living to the dead, now usually attributed by adults to children, and by children to adults.
Happy are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.

At times during the past decade, prosecutions against Scientology seemed to be curbing its menace.
At the time, city officials were reportedly collaborating with U.S. tax inspectors and trying to prove that the cult was actually a profitmaking business.
For the TIME story, at least 10 attorneys and six private detectives were unleashed by Scientology and its followers in an effort to threaten, harass and discredit me.

 http://www.qando.net/ - More Anarchy!
In modern times, we have used both the Keynesian and Monetarist approaches at the Fed, and neither has proven to be a panacea.
Still, worrying about the situation during a period when there were hardly any railroads, unit banking was required by many states, interstate branch banking was banned, and many banks were required to "back" their notes with state goverment bonds that regularly defaulted, points more to a myth than a reality.
It is true, that the greatest disaster, the Great Depression, occured during a time when option clauses were banned (as they mostly have been,) suspension was rejected, and the Federal Reserve failed to act as lender of last resort.

The first time I played Halo 2, I got a good solid hour of playtime in and I was playing against (and at times with) the guys from Bungie, who are fierce competitors who really know the maps and clearly enjoy playing games.
The second time offered a completely different experience, as it took place in a secluded room in the back alley of Microsoft's booth, with myself and nine other yokels, some of whom weren't journalists and probably didn't play too many games.
Where the first time through -- in four-on-four Capture the Flag -- there was lots of yelling, joking, and some self-effacing comments (on my end), the second time out was so quiet you could hear a ghost fart.
