  $(function() {
    var scheduler = $("#scheduler").kendoScheduler({
      date: new Date("2013/6/13"),
      startTime: new Date("2013/6/13 07:00 AM"),
      height: 600,
      views: [
        "day",
        { type: "workWeek", selected: true },
        "week",
        "month",
        "agenda",
        { type: "timeline", eventHeight: 50}
      ],
      timezone: "Etc/UTC",
      dataSource: {
        batch: true,
        transport: {
          read: {
            url: "//demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks",
