Google welcomes spring and fall with dual Doodles for the equinox
For the winter solstice, Earth is tilted away from the sun, which results in less hours of daylight and therefore, cooler weather. According to National Weather Service.com, the first day of spring equinox ( March 20 ) is referred to as Vernal Equinox .

"With the regular season now here, we have informed Melvin's representatives that discussions regarding a contract extension will be postponed until the conclusion of the season". He was sixth in the AFC in yards from scrimmage (1,375), ninth in rushing (885 yards) and scored 14 touchdowns last season as the Chargers made the playoffs for the first time since 2013. To think he did all that while missing four games. "So when or if Melvin reports, he'll play this season on his current contract". He is seeking an extension that would pay him closer to what the NFL's top backs are being paid - upwards of $13 million per year. After making their roster cuts on Saturday, Los Angeles has given Gordon permission to seek a trade, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. That means that Gordon had a decision to make on whether he would report to the team and play in 2019 or go full Le'Veon Bell and sit out.

The Chargers have offered Gordon a new contract that doubles his salary at roughly $10 million annually - but so far that hasn't been enough to get Gordon into camp.
