Autumnal Equinox ( Happy Autumn 2015 )

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Equinox is the time or date (twice each year) at which the sun crosses the celestial equator, when day and night are of equal length (about September 22 and March 20)

Earth Axis

The Autumnal equinox (or Southward equinox) is the moment when the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator, heading southward. Due to differences between the calendar year and the tropical year, the September equinox can occur at any time from the 21st to the 24th day of September.

At the equinox, the Sun rises directly in the east and sets directly in the west. Before the Southward equinox, the Sun rises and sets more and more to the north, and afterwards, it rises and sets more and more to the south.

It's time for a happy Autumn when nature spreads a pallet of colors. Reach out to your friends and loved ones with our warm Autumn wishes and share with them the bright cheer...

Baseball "Yankees" Legend Yogi Berra Passes Away at 90

September/23/2015 New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra died of natural causes Tuesday at age 90, the New York Times reports. He had been living in an assisted living facility in New Jersey.

Born Lawrence Peter Berra in St. Louis, Mo., Berra left school after the eighth grade and went on to play minor league baseball before serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II. After being passed over by the St. Louis Cardinals, he made his major league debut with the Yankees in 1946, hitting a home run in his first at-bat.

Yogi Berra

Throughout his debut (on Sept. 22, 1946.) 19-year professional career as a catcher, Berra was a three-time MVP of the American League and a 15-time All Star. He also holds the record for playing in more World Series games than any other major league player. He was also known for his witticisms, many of which became part of modern parlance, including "It ain't over 'til it's over." The cartoon character Yogi Bear was named after him.

After he retired in 1963, Berra coached and/or managed the Yankees, the New York Mets and the Houston Astros, winning World Series titles with both New York teams. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972, the same year his No. 8 was retired by the Yankees.

Goodbye Berra

Berra was fired as manager of the Yankees in 1984 and famously said he would never return to Yankee Stadium because of the way team owner George Steinbrenner handled his ouster. But Steinbrenner personally apologized to Berra in the late '90s, and through recent years, Berra was often seen at Yankees games and in the team's clubhouse.

In 1998, the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center opened on Montclair State University's campus in Upper Montclair, N.J.

Berra is survived by three sons. His wife, Carmen, died in 2014, shortly after they celebrated their 65th anniversary.
