It’s About Time coverage from around the world, in recent chronological sequence

  • The 25th International Book of Mormon Evidence Conference 
    David W. Allan spoke at the Firm Foundation Book of Mormon Conference Expo in April of 2020. Because of the COVID-19, it was the first “Virtual Expo”,  where 90 presentations were given by 75 experts. The subject of Allan’s contribution was,  Who and Where we are, and What’s coming, harmonizing Science and Religion.  It can be accessed by signing up for the FIRM Foundation library.
  • The 24th International Book of Mormon Evidence Conference 
    On September 27, 2019, David W. Allan spoke at the Firm Foundation Book of Mormon Expo, held at the Mountain America Exposition Center in Sandy, Utah.  The subject of his lecture was,  “How Great Shall Be Your Joy”
  • The 23rd International Book of Mormon Evidence Conference 
    On April 11, 2019, David W. Allan spoke at the Firm Foundation Book of Mormon Conference held at the Davis Conference Center in Layton, Utah. The subject of his address was:  “Where Did the Book of Mormon Really Take Place and Does it Matter?”
  • IEEE Joseph F. Keithley Award – May, 2018
    David W. Allan was nominated for the IEEE Keithley Award for Instrumentation and Measurement by Emeritus Professor Kam Lau of Engineering at UC Berkeley. This award is to honor Mr. Allan for his precise instrumentation work with GPS and for the contribution in regards to the atomic clock official time keeping system for the US and the world.
    Recognizing the significance of this award, he was invited to be the keynote speaker at the 2018 IEEE I&M International Convention on the 16th of May.  The award was actually presented at the International Frequency Control Symposium the following week in Tahoe, California.
    The lecture went miraculously well considering the fact he suffered from several strokes just previous to the event. Because of excellent medical care and priesthood blessings and prayers, Mr. Allan was able to fulfill this opportunity and spoke for an hour and ten minutes. During the lecture, he announce to his colleagues that he was there because of a miracle.
  • The 22nd International International Book of Mormon Evidence Conference 
    In April of 2018, David Allan addressed a large audience on the subject “Where We Are in God’s Time.”  To view his address,  “Click Here”

  • Joseph F. Keithly Award is given to David W. Allan by the IEEE
    On behalf of the IEEE Board of Directors, it is my great pleasure to congratulate you on being named recipient of the 2018 IEEE Joseph F. Keithley Award in Instrumentation and Measurement, for outstanding contributions in electrical measurements, with the following citation: “For leadership in time determination and precise timing instruments.”For nearly a century, the IEEE Awards Program has paid tribute to technical professionals whose exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions have made a lasting impact on technology, society, and the engineering profession. Each year the IEEE Awards Board recommends a select group of recipients to receive IEEE’s most prestigious honors, so you can feel justifiably proud (June 24, 2017)
  • David W. Allan receives highest award given by the IEEE
    The Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers is the largest scientific publishing house in the world.  At the 2016 international conference in the field of precise timing in New Orleans, LA, the IEEE gave Allan the highest award given by them for his life-long contributions with the citation: “For seminal work… regarding time determination, time prediction, time dissemination and timekeeping through contributions to atomic frequency standards, space-based navigation, time and frequency stability analysis, time-scale algorithms, and timekeeping devices.” (May 10, 2016)
  • 50th anniversary for the Allan Variance
    David Allan’s master’s thesis was published 50 years ago.  Out of this thesis evolved what the world has come to know as the Allan variance, which became an international standard for measuring the performance of atomic clocks and was used when such clocks were needed for GPS.  This thesis and subsequent work led to international standards for telecommunication synchronization and for measuring errors in navigation and positioning systems.  Because of its significance, this year, the IEEE celebrated the 50th anniversary of the publication of his thesis by publishing a special issue with 15 papers citing the diverse and important uses that have arisen over this half century by Allan and his several colleagues.

  • The Discovery Institute, which is the most significant institute, maybe in the world, to counter the anti-Christ organic evolutionary infusion in our education system and throughout science, wants to look at a copy of my book.  I will be sending the book to them today. They are the proponents of intelligent design in the DNA: , and I feature two of their key authors in my book: Dr. Stephen C. Meyer and Dr. David Berlinski.  These two guys can make Richard Dawkins, the author of The God Delusion, eat crow.  (The Discovery Institute: March 22, 2016)
  • The Powerful Book of Mormon Phrase We Always See but Never Think AboutI once read a story about a nonmember man who translated the Book of Mormon into Afrikaans. During the translation, he realized how unique many of the phrases were in their English translation, particularly the one we all know: “And it came to pass.” He was intrigued because, after all, he once remarked, “how many Englishmen write or say, ‘And it came to pass’?” (LDS Living: January 6, 2016)
  • David Allan says his UFT experiments show existence of free energy field – “We show direct evidence that there is a field in the universe that one can tap into which will supply, basically, free energy. We’ve shown [seven different experiments] the existence of this field, some of its properties; that it has quantum states.” (PESN: September 13, 2014)
  •  Overview of ‘It’s About Time’ book and Allan Variance equations – Recognized with the “Time Lord Award” in 2011, and second recipient of the I.I. Rabi Award, after Rabi in 1984, who invented the atomic clock, and with his Allan Variance set to be featured in a special issue of IEEE-UFFC on its 50 anniversary in 2016; David W. Allan has just published his book that includes a chapter on energy. (PESN: August 14, 2014)
  • David Allan on “What is Time, How Does GPS Work, and God’s Time” – Those of you who have been following our news for a while might enjoy watching my Dad give this presentation at Snow College. It will help you see what informs my belief system and world view. Before talking about the history of time and atomic clocks, he describes how his life has been guided by inspiration from God. He also touches on the dangers the world faces due to conspiratorial attacks on freedom. (PureEnergyBlog:March 23, 2013
  • “My Idea” is Actually from Higher Power – Reflections on a saying I was raised with: “There is no limit to the good you can do if you don’t worry about who gets the credit.” When you consider that “ideas” actually come from the divine, and that it takes a lot of people and talents to bring an idea to market, it’s easier to maintain the needed humility.
