6 feet under Berlin's Alexanderplatz, a 40 year old motor drives a Trabant gearbox. The gears, in turn, propel a huge aluminum disc more than 6 feet (2 meters) above the ground.
On the disc, in a bulky sans-serif font, are the numbers from 1 to 24. During a day's course, the numbers pass by city names from around the world arranged on huge 24-sided prisms.
The Urania World Time Clock, still the place to meet in Berlin, makes the world's 24 time zones palpable -- as does Gmail, one could argue, if something goes wrong:
›› The sun rises while the email says it's noon? Chances are the sun is not wrong. Here's how to align your Gmail time zone with it.

Apparently gmails setting are constantly changing because nothing I found on the web helped me change my time zone in g-mail which was affecting the calendar on my phone which synced with my gmail. I only found it by fluke..in case other people are having the same problem this is how I solved it: In the settings of Gmail > accounts and import tab > Other Account settings (third option down) > find the ‘dashboard’ option on the page which should be the 5th blue hyperlink as ‘view data stored with this account > 2nd blue hyperlink ‘Edit personal information > now the page that comes up the time zone options should be obvious…for some reason it had me in Berlin!!!
