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... Swansea City 0 v 1 Leeds United, 4 points needed from 3 games...

11,172 people evacuated as 30/40% extra snow this winter suddenly melts as high temperatures hit Kazakhstan causing chaos (Video)

Floods are wreaking havoc across parts of Kazakhstan as authorities are forced to evacuate dozens of settlements.
Tengrinews, citing the Karaganda Oblast's Department of Emergency Situations, reports that 1,760 houses have been flooded in 35 villages with 340 livestock having been drowned.
In February this year heavy snow and blizzards hit Kazakhstan forcing some residents to dig tunnels to escape their buried houses.
Sharp rises in temperatures recently have intensified the melting of snow and caused widespread flooding.
Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of Kazakhstan, Vladimir Bozhko, sought to dispel rumors that the floods in Kazakhstan came as a surprise this year.
At a press conference in Astana on April 15, he said that the forecast of Kazhydromet (National Hydrometeorological Service of the Republic of Kazakhstan) made in February suggested that the amount of autumn moisture and winter snow exceeded the normal amount by 30-40 percent in Akmola, Karaganda, North Kazakhstan and Kostanai Oblasts.
Bozhko explained that 11,172 people had been evacuated from danger zones in advance, with 25 people rescued from rooftops.
More than 36,000 heads of livestock were driven away from the endangered settlements to higher ground.
The danger of flooding still remains high.
