Ubuntu messes up with Windows clock

ca flag

I run Ubuntu Mate 20.04 LTS along with Windows-10 on a dual boot desktop. My local time zone is USA PST, (which is GMT-8:00). The problem happens when I switch to Windows. Suddenly, I discover that the Windows clock is pushed 8 hours ahead. This might indicate that my time settings are done differently for Windows and for Ubuntu, even though they are done for the same time zone. Is there a way to set time in Ubuntu, so that it does not interfere with the time setting in Windows? The two of them should always be the same.

This is because the default behavior for consumer versions of Windows is archaic and derives system time from local time instead of UTC. See the duplicate question for instructions to switch Windows to derive time from UTC like the rest of the modern world.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
