(Oct. 29, 2009)--When you go to bed Saturday night, remember to set back your clocks one hour. At 2 a.m., Sunday, Nov. 1, daylight saving time (DST) ends for the year.
>> Employees working during the change to standard time will receive credit for nine hours worked for that completed shift and should be reflected on the employee time record. Work schedule adjustments within the seven-day workweek may be made by departmental supervisors to prevent the accrual of overtime or state compensatory time hours. For more information, contact UTSA Human Resources at (210) 458-7891.
Since it will feel like we are losing an hour, there are some "inconveniences," according to Helium.com. For some, the shift of one hour of daylight from the evening to the morning requires only minor adjustment, but for others the adjustment period can take weeks.
Because the body's inner clock (circadian rhythms) is abruptly unable to sync up with its external environment, it can result in fatigue, sleeplessness, irritability and other discomforts. On the flip side, some experts believe that DST can actually help alleviate depression, as people must get up earlier once the time changes.

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.
Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.
