When EST is 12pm, then: Calif=9am BUT: Western Australia is 12+1 so is "1am the next day" And NSW is 12+3 hours LATER than EST ***not true given daylight savings!?!? June 2015: now 7pm in Maryland but NOT 10am,rather:9am-the-next-day,@NSW per google.com, "time now in new south wales australia" notice "time now" at google gives, "EDT" not "EST": 7:10 PM Tuesday, June 30, 2015 (EDT) Time in Frederick, MD
