    Each day will be approximately 1.26 seconds shorter, so that is 365 x 1.26 = 7.67 minutes shorter year.  See the link below.

      That should be 1.26 microseconds – 0.00000126 seconds x 365 = five ten thousandths of a second in a year. It will take 2000 years for the effect to add up to one second.

    NASA reported that the recent earthquake in Chile tilted the Earth’s axis by 3 inches. This takes 1.26 microseconds off our day. Not something you would really notice!
