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.

Leeds 5 v 0 Stoke, 7 points needed from 4 games...

Fukushima cooling system shuts down: Meteor burns through the sky: Tsunami evacuation warning after powerful mag 6.9 quake hits Japan


A Japanese teenager films a meteor burning up in the sky above Fukushima Prefecture during last night’s major quake.
The teen, known as Asuka, 16, from Japan, filmed the extraordinary sight trailing across the evening sky.

A rough translation of her Tweet accompanying the video says: "A movie I took while preparing to die.
Luckily she lived to tell the tale.

The cooling system of the third reactor at the Fukushima nuclear power plant stopped circulating water following the powerful mag 6.9 offshore earthquake.
TEPCO said it managed to restart the system some 90 minutes after the failure.
The cooling system servicing the Unit 3 spent fuel pool was not able to circulate water to cool the nuclear fuel because of a broken pump, according to the Nuclear Regulatory Agency.
The exact cause of the cooling system stoppage is currently unknown.
However, the system might have been “shaken” during the earthquake, according to nuclear agency officials, as reported by NHK.
The station’s storage pool currently contains 2,544 spent fuel rods.
No cooling water leaks or any other “abnormalities” have been reported.

Tsunami waves of up to 1.4 metres have hit the Japanese coast after a strong earthquake struck offshore early on Tuesday morning.
A tsunami warning was downgraded to an advisory for Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures on the Pacific coast of northeastern Japan.
The same region was struck by a devastating tsunami in 2011.
The highest tsunami so far was recorded at Sendai Bay about two hours after the earthquake.
The Japan Meteorological Agency has recorded smaller waves along the coast.
It warned that waves of up to 3 metres could reach Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures.
The earthquake, which was felt in Tokyo, was centred off the coast of Fukushima prefecture at a depth of about 10 km, the the Japan Meteorological Agency said.
