Retrieves the number of minutes past the hour from the minutes value stored in a Date object according to Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).
To get the number of minutes stored using local time, use the getMinutes method.
The getUTCMinutes method returns an integer between 0 and 59 equal to the number of minutes stored in the Date object. A zero occurs in two situations: the time is less than one minute after the hour, or a time was not stored in the Date object when the object was created. The only way to determine which situation you have is to also check the hours and seconds for zero values. If they are all zeroes, it is nearly certain that the time was not stored in the Date object.
