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...

Above the heatwave in 2015 killed more than a 1,000 people in Karachi alone with temperatures approaching 50 deg C (122 deg F).
With temperatures hovering around 45 deg C (115 deg F) in parts of Pakistan it becomes the third country in 24 hours to warn it's residents to once again have to take the necessary precautions to avoid heat exhaustion and heatstroke, as well as deal with poor air quality.
The discomfort caused by the arrival of summer is further aggravated because of unscheduled load-shedding.
Over the past few years, Karachi has been witnessing extreme summers.
In 2015, the heatwave in the city resulted in the death of at least 1,000 people.
The question is: has our government taken any preventative actions and measures to avert the loss of precious lives, especially in the month of Ramazan?
Proper steps should be taken to avoid any untoward incident.
Awareness campaigns should be carried out to inform people how to prevent heatstroke.
The government should set up camps at various locations and provide cool drinking water to passers-by. Hospitals should be well-equipped to deal with any untoward situation.

Yesterday millions of people and animals were declared in danger as parts of India braced as the mercury rose above 45 degree Celsius around 115 deg F.

And most of the Philippines was declared in the "Extreme Caution" classification as the heat index rose to a high of 47.7°C (118 deg F) in some parts.
