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...

Heat Wave in India update: Bilaspur witnessed a new record, 49.3 degrees Celsius, (121 F) Monday

It's the kind of temperatures which melt cars and roads and was responsible for thousands of deaths in India and Pakistan last year.
The heat wave in Chattisgarh is touching new highs each day. On Monday, Bilaspur witnessed 49.3 degrees Celsius, the highest temperature recorded in the state for the first time.
While Raigarh and Bhilai are known to record higher temperatures, Bilaspur has been witnessing intense heat in the past few years.
"We are analysing factors that have led to high temperature.
We had issued a heatwave warning earlier," said P Khare, Director of Meteorological Department, Chhattisgarh.
Raipur, which is at a distance of approximately 110 km from Bilaspur, recorded a temperature of around 44-45 degrees Celsius.
While Bilaspur and Raipur normally have a temperature difference of 1 degree, weathermen are shocked at the sudden gap of 4.5 degrees.
Reports say that cutting of trees in Bilaspur is one of the biggest reasons for intense heat in the area. Chattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh has come under attack from the Opposition for cutting of trees and rising temperatures.
