What’s better than a Monday? A Monday you can call The Autumnal Equinox! Today at 3:50 a.m. the sun was directly in line with the equator, marking the official equinox. As a result. both the Northern and Southern hemispheres will have the same amount of daylight. Which means the first day of astronomical fall for us, and the beginning of spring for those south of the equator. The new rules go into effect Oct. 17, you can find the complete list here. State officials are still taking public comments on these pending rules through October 2nd. If you love the outdoors, it’s safe to say that most of your favorite memories as a kid involved exploring nature and getting outside. Every Kid Outdoors understands that and is offering students in the fourth grade a free annual pass to our nation’s national parks for a full year. The Autumnal Equinox is Upon Us Fourth Graders Receive Free Admission to National Parks Through ‘Every Kid Outdoors’ Program More than a dozen new rules go into effect at Virginia State Parks in October.It’s part of a fast-track regulation review from the Department of Conservation and Recreation. Some of the changes to state rules update outdated languages, others could catch campers off-guard. Here’s a list of some of the changes that could affect you: Temperature and weather conditions, though, can impact the intensity of fall colors along with the timing of when they change. Hopefully this year, we get a bright and colorful fall! As daylight hours continue to shorten, the leaves will start to change color. This is because the color change is more dependent on light than temperature Vox reported. The short days cause the green and leafy trees to signal to their leaves to stop producing chlorophyll, which is what gives leaves their green color and photosynthesis. New Rules Heading to Virginia State Parks Generator use will be prohibited at campsites and in the campground at all times. Previously, generators were allowed except during quiet hours (10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.)Drones and unmanned aerial systems have been included in the list of “flying machines” prohibited in the park. There is a provision that exempts rescue and training exercises for law enforcement.Vaporizers or e-cigarette use is banned in buildings or parts of parks where tobacco smoking is banned.Fungi have been added to the list of materials park visitors cannot remove from parks. That list includes trees, minerals, rocks, and historical artifacts. However, there is a new provision that allows fruits, nuts and berries to be collected for personal use.The penalty for urinating or defecating outside in designated areas or facilities is being re-classified. Previously an individual caught doing so, was charged with indecent exposure (a class-1 misdemeanor) regardless of intent. They were also required to register on Virginia’s Sex Offender Registry. Once the new rules go into effect, that violation of park law will become a class-3 misdemeanor.Electric power-assisted bikes will be allowed on designated bicycle paths. From now until August 31, 2020, fourth graders all over the United States can get a free pass to visit any federal lands or waters. For more details and to claim a pass, parents of fourth-grade students, homeschooled included, can go to Every Kid Outdoors’ website. Educators can also get in on the deal in addition to other special program opportunities for teachers to extend learning outside the classroom.

The Ivorian was like a wall for United as he made some vital interceptions and was a leader from the back.Victor Lindelof – 7The Swedish definitely brought his World Cup form to his club and was alert throughout the match. He complimented Bailly perfectly and the duo could make a solid partnership for United.Luke Shaw – 8He looked like the old-inform left back from his Southampton days. Looked like he was waiting for this opportunity to prove his doubters wrong and wrapped up his performance with a good goal.Andreas Pereira – 7The youngster had a good match and provided some crucial passes going forward. He kept it neat and didn’t tinker much to show off his skills unnecessary.Paul Pogba – 7Converted a calm penalty early in the first half and was a commanding figure in the heart of the midfield. Although he became a little complacent as the game went on, overall a brilliant way to start off a season.Fred – 6The Brazilian had a decent debut for United as he kept his passes simple. However, he made some reckless tackles as the game went on, but a good debut for him.Juan Mata – 6Apart from that wasted chance to put United 2-0 in that situation, the Spaniard look tidy and was behind Shaw’s goal.Alexis Sanchez – 5Won the penalty for United and also created a superb chance for Lukaku, but he still lacks the X-factor which he had for Arsenal.Marcus Rashford – 4Looked cautious as the number 9, and lost possession quite a few times and didn’t offer much.SUBSTITUTIONSLukaku – 3Missed an open chance from a ball by Sanchez after coming on in the second half. Still not 100 per cent match fit.McTominay – 5Showed why he is rated so highly, was calm and precise with his passes after replacing Fred.Fellaini – N/ADid not offer much after coming late in the second half.
