Special features beyond simply keeping time can be either practical or decorative. Often found in the kitchen or other busy room, some digital clocks can show readings of the indoor or outdoor temperature, display the date, and have the capacity to set an alarm or timer. A swinging pendulum is most commonly found on fancier wood and metal clocks, though some novelty styles also feature a pendulum.
"Clocks" is a song by British rock band Coldplay. It was written and composed, as a collaboration between all the members of the band, for their second album A Rush of Blood to the Head. Built around a piano riff, the song features cryptic lyrics concerning themes of contrast and urgency. Several remixes of the track exist and its riff has been widely sampled.
Time clocks take the grunt work out of calculating hundreds of payroll hours and individual schedule variations. Choose automated systems that adjust to weekly, biweekly, and monthly payroll schedules based on your program settings and instantly calculate irregularities such as overtime and sick leave. Advanced electronic clocks automatically adapt to shorter months and daylight savings time, eliminating the need to reset your system periodically.
Install an electronic time clock at the workplace to save time, as your employees can quickly stamp their time cards or scan their finger to clock in. Easily review time cards on a daily or weekly basis to determine if employees are working too much overtime. Many machines submit information directly to your accounting software, which cuts down on the number of employees required in the payroll department, in addition to saving on the time required to review data.
