Case study 1

It was reported that a strong earthquake hit Turkey at 04:32 AM local time on March 8, 2010.  They say this date and time can be translated into 09:32 PM US EST, March 7, 2010.  Is this time translation correct?

Using WhatFinder, we can confirm that the translated time is indeed correct.  The earthquake that hit Turkey occured at 09:32 PM US EST on March 7, 2010.

Case study 2

We know that it's been more than 50 years since World War II ended.  Exactly, how long has it been?  TCounter shows that it has been 566,016 hours or 23,584 days since the Japanese empire accepted unconditional surrender on August 15, 1945.
