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...

Tons of dead fish washing up everyday along a river in Preah Vihear, Cambodia

Preah Vihear provincial authorities collected fish and water samples for examination on Monday after nearly a week of mass fish deaths in the Stung Sen river.
Ea Sokha, the director of the Preah Vihear environment department, said the fish began dying on March 24.
Local authorities appealed to people living along the river to refrain from consuming or selling fish from the river.
Sokha said that the fish and water samples have been sent to a Phnom Penh laboratory for examination.
“There are 3 to 4 tonnes of dead fish per day,” said Sokha, adding that the deaths continue to occur. Lut Sang, a member of local NGO Ponlok Khmer, said that his organisation visited the river last Friday after hearing complaints from villagers.
Sang said that he and many villagers believe that runoff from a factory owned by the Rui Feng sugar company – located 10 kilometres from the river, in Chey Sen district – is behind the fish deaths.
“We suspect that the company released pollution into the river,” he said
