      Description

      If a user changes the timezone in the account settings, the events display portlet will still work as if UTC is the timezone.

      Here are the steps to reproduce the issue:

      1. Deploy the Events Display plugin
      2. Add the Events Display portlet
      3. Add a Calendar portlet
      4. Go to Control Panel
      5. Go to My Account
      6. Go to Display Settings
      7. Change the time zone to Pacific Standard Time
      8. Add a new Calendar event that is taking place one hour ahead of the current time
      9. View the Events Display portlet; no events will be displayed
      10. Repeat steps 4-6
      11. Change the time zone to Universal Coordinated Time
      12. View the Events Display portlet; the event will be displayed

      Also, if a user is in Pacific Standard Time and adds an event that is 8 hours or more ahead of the current time, the event will still display (due to UTC being 8 hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time).
