Time Running Out To Start Physicist’s New Calendar

BALTIMORE, Md. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – No longer would September and June hath 30 days if one physicist at The John Hopkins University gets a hold of the calendar.

For over a year, Richard Henry has been trying to implement his new “Calendar-and-Time Plan” which is designed so that calendar days would fall on the same day of the week year after year.

That means Christmas and New Year’s Day would always be on Sunday and other important dates would remain the same forever.

Under Henry’s calendar, certain months would lose a day, while others would gain a day, and to counteract leap year, every five or six years – based on certain calculations – a special seven day mini-month Henry calls “Newton Week” would have to be inserted in the year between June and July.

Henry hoped the world would adopt his calendar by this past January 1, but that doesn’t mean his timely idea’s time has run out.

He only has to cut December 31 out of 2006 and begin again on January 1, 2007.
