Marching On Together

Marching On Together I have had a romance with a lady since my childhood just like thousands of other people around the world who are also in love with her. I have remained in love with her through the many bad times and the few good times, my love for her has never faltered and never will. My lady's name is Leeds United and she is just five games away from returning to the English Football Premiership, after sixteen years in the football wilderness. In the sixties, seventies and early nineties my lady was known as "Super Leeds," however in 2003, my love was relegated from the English Football Premiership due to financial miss-handling by her owners. "Super Leeds," dropped down to the third tier of English football. If Leeds United can grab ten points from their last five games my lady will be back where she belongs in the higher echelons of English football and I can once more embrace my love with happiness.

2015 Earthquakes in numbers

A total number of 156 mag 6 or greater was an average amount of major quakes for 2015, September having the most with a surge of 34 mag 6 +er's and January having the least with 4.
The biggest quakes of the year was the 2 mag 8.3's in Chile in September.
Are major quakes increasing?
The general consensus is yes but the graph below showing major quakes since 2000 suggests different.
2011 had the highest amount with many striking northern Japan and Fukushima and registering a mag 9.0.
2012 the year many thought would be our last here on planet earth registered the least with a mere 133.

2015 produced 1447 quakes of mag 5-5.9 see below, which is considerably less than the 1578 which were registered in 2014
