Below is an updated list of datasets.  The front page of the Washington Post has a story about dividing up money [1] today.  I think we'd be better off dividing up time.  It's quieter, and anybody can do it :o) 

These pages are a reverse-Farmers' Almanac for City Dweller Millennials.  They compute Civil Twilight (bigger than Apparent sunrise/sunset, Climate Change Measurements, etc.), around a work day (Away Time).  Civil Twilight is when you have to turn on your headlights, for example. The idea is that Work-Life Balance or Work-Leisure Balance should be time measurements in hours not sunshine measurements in days, because office work is not seasonal (unlike farm work).  They are "kids and dogs" work schedules.

I don't have an iPad, so I don't know how these look ...

Eventually I need somebody to make these into an iPhone app too.  The app also is useful if you work from home or can't use your gadgets at work or during "working hours" for security reasons.
