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...

Taiwan's health authorities on Saturday reported this year's first case of a human infected by avian influenza (H7N9) and are actively tracking the health of as many as 108 people who came in contact with the patient over the past two weeks.
Beijing on Saturday reported a human H7N9 avian flu case, the first human infection in the capital city in 2017, authorities said.
The Centres for Disease Control (CDC) announced that a Taiwanese businessman in mainland China was confirmed to have been infected with the H7N9 virus several days after returning from the mainland on Jan. 25.
The 69-year-old man, a Kaohsiung native, is now under intensive care and remains unresponsive.
The man developed a fever on Jan. 23 while working in China's Guangdong province and had sought medical treatment there, said Lo Yi-chun, deputy director general of the CDC.
He returned to Taiwan on Jan. 25 and went to a local hospital the following day.
He was suspected to have been infected with avian influenza A. At the hospital, he tested negative for the H7N9 virus, said Lo. But on Jan. 29, the patient showed signs of a fever and coughing with phlegm and went to the hospital again, at which time doctors suspected that he had pneumonia.
