Chavez’s Wall Clock Beats Internal Body Clock

Researchers say they have identified the chemical switch that controls the genetic mechanism regulating people’s internal body clocks. Coincidentally, President Hugo Chavez came up with an alternative way of regulating the internal body clocks of his citizens, i.e. by creating Venezuela’s own unique time zone by putting the clock back half-an-hour on a permanent basis and forcing the whole nation to rise early. Brilliant!
