When the city permanently “springs forward,” it will see a brighter future! Example concluding paragraph: My specific topic Thesis Final comment (prediction) PowerPoint Presentation: Spring Forward with Permanent Daylight Saving Time The practice of setting the clocks forward one hour in spring is called Daylight Saving Time [DST], and it ushers in months of gloriously bright evenings. DST was originally implemented as an alternative schedule for the summer months. However, the DST schedule should now become permanent because it promotes activity outside, improves people’s moods, and reduces crime. First , when the clock is set forward one hour, people can enjoy more activities after work. Since the sun sets at a later hour, people have plenty of time to have fun outside before the end of the day. During a bright evening, people can play sports, get together at parks, and play with their kids in the yard. In addition, they can take care of tasks that require daylight, such as mowing or other chores around the house. Errands like grocery shopping are also easier when there is plenty of daylight left after work or school. The next big reason to adopt DST throughout the year is its mood-enhancing effects. When the sky begins to get dark at 5:45pm, people just get depressed. At 6pm, some people are just getting home from work. To see a skyline already getting dark makes these people feel like their day is over. Furthermore, an overly bright morning can make workers and students feel like they are already running late and behind schedule. A cool, dark morning can make them feel like they are getting a jump on the day! Finally , the last reason to go for full-year DST is the subsequent reduction in crime. Criminals ’ natural habitat is darkness. A criminal may use the darkness to hide and wait for victims who are out running errands in the evening. These victims may be law-abiding citizens who need to be out at 7 or 8pm, grocery shopping or picking up their kids from soccer practice. A bright evening provided by DST can eliminate shadowy hiding places for these bad guys. It is time to take advantage of daylight. It is clear from the evidence that a city with DST is an active, happy, and safe city. Therefore, Daylight Saving Time should be applied year-round. When the city permanently “springs forward,” it will see a brighter future ! References: References Anker, S. (2007). Real writing, 4 th ed. Boston: Bedford/St. Martin’s. Oshima , A. & Hogue, A.
