This is from week ago but I thought it was interesting.
The unique nature of the poles is well understood by mariners but an interesting take from someone having spent some time there.
None of this really applies at the North Pole. Weeman notes that “at the North Pole, 24 time zones collide at a single point, rendering them meaningless. It’s simultaneously all of Earth’s time zones and none of them. There are no boundaries of any kind in this abyss, in part because there is no land and no people. The sun rises and sets just once per year, so “time of day” is irrelevant as well.”
The spinning planet can be thought of as a giant clock.
