The Unix epoch (or Unix time or POSIX time or Unix timestamp) is the number of seconds that have elapsed since January 1, 1970 (midnight UTC/GMT), not counting leap seconds (in ISO 8601: 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z). Literally speaking the epoch is Unix time 0 (midnight 1/1/1970), but 'epoch' is often used as a synonym for Unix time. UTC uses 24-hour (military) time notation and is based on the local standard time on the 0° longitude meridian which runs through Greenwich, England. Midnight in Greenwich corresponds to 00:00 UTC, noon corresponds to 12:00 UTC, and so on.
Microsoft uses Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) format, an international standard 24-hour timekeeping system, to document the created dates and times of files that are included in a software update. This article describes how to convert UTC to local time to verify that the file that is on your computer is the one that is discussed in the documentation.
To convert UTC to local time, follow these steps:
Determine your local time offset from UTC time. To do this, follow these steps on a Microsoft Windows-based computer:
Click Start, click Run, type timedate.cpl, and then click OK.
Click the Time Zone tab, and then verify that your local time zone is selected. If your local time zone is not selected, click it in the list of available time zones.
The local time offset is shown at the start of each local region list item. For example, -5:00 is the local time offset for Eastern Time (US & Canada):
(GMT-5:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)
Add the local time offset to the UTC time.
For example, if your local time offset is -5:00, and if the UTC time is shown as 11:00, add -5 to 11. The time setting when adjusted for offset is 06:00 (6:00 A.M.).
Note The date also follows UTC format. For example, if your local time offset is -8:00, and if the file's UTC time is shown as 00:00 (12:00 midnight) on Monday, the adjusted time is 16:00 on Sunday (4:00 P.M., Sunday).
Adjust for daylight saving time.
UTC time is not adjusted to reflect daylight-saving time. If your time zone participates in daylight saving time, add the time difference to the file's offset-adjusted time when daylight saving time is in effect. For example, if daylight saving time in your time zone is one hour ahead of standard time, add one hour to the offset-adjusted time.
Convert the 24-hour time format to 12-hour time format if your local time uses the 12-hour format. To make the conversion, follow these steps:
If the offset-adjusted time is between 12:01 and 23:59, inclusive, subtract 12 from the adjusted time, and then append P.M.
If the adjusted time is between 00:01 and 11:59, inclusive, leave the adjusted time as is, and then append A.M.
If the adjusted time is 00:00, use 12:00 midnight.
If the adjusted time is 12:00, use 12:00 noon.
You can use this method to compare the file's converted time to the time of a software update file that is on your computer.
When you view the file details of the file that is on your computer, the date in the Date Modified column may be different from the date in the Date Created column. If this difference occurs, use the date in the Date Modified column.

14 Utc To Central Time
UTC+14:00 is an identifier for a time offset from UTC of +14:00. This is the earliest time zone on Earth, meaning that areas in this zone are the first to see a new day, and therefore the first to celebrate a New Year. It is also referred to as the 'latest time zone' on Earth, as clocks in it always show the 'latest' (i.e., most advanced) time of all time zones.
UTC+14:00 stretches as far as 30° east of the 180° longitude line and creates a large fold in the International Date Line around the Pacific nation of Kiribati.

The central Pacific Republic of Kiribati introduced a change of date for its eastern half on 31 December 1994, from time zones UTC−11:00 and UTC−10:00 to UTC+13:00 and UTC+14:00. Before this, the time zones UTC+13:00 and UTC+14:00 did not exist. As a British colony, Kiribati was centred in the Gilbert Islands, just west of the old date line. The distant Phoenix and Line Islands were on the other side of the date line. Government offices on opposite sides of the line could only communicate by radio or telephone on the four days of the week when both sides experienced weekdays simultaneously.
The revision of Kiribati's time zone meant that the date line in effect moved eastwards to go around this country, so that the Line Islands, including the inhabited Kiritimati island, started the year 2000 on its territory before any other country on Earth, a feature the Kiribati government capitalized on as a potential tourist draw.
Tonga—IANA time zone database zone name Pacific/Tongatapu—used UTC+14:00 for daylight saving time from 1999 to 2002 & 2016 to 2017, and therefore celebrated new year 2000 at the same time as the Line Islands in Kiribati.
At the end of 29 December 2011 (UTC−10:00), Samoa advanced its standard time from UTC−11:00 to UTC+13:00 (and its daylight saving time from UTC−10:00 to UTC+14:00), essentially moving the international date line to the other side of the country.
Utc+14 Time Right Now
Alaska (Russian America) had local times corresponding to between UTC+11:30 and UTC+15:10 until 1867 (24 hours were deducted in 1867 to make the date correspond to rest of United States). These times were local mean times and not time zones.
UTC+14:00 was used as a daylight time before 1982 in the parts of very eastern Russia (Chukotka) that used Anadyr Time.
