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...

A magnitude 6.4 quake followed by nearly 200 aftershocks strikes Alaska’s oil-producing North Slope


USGS
A magnitude 6.4 quake followed by nearly 200 aftershocks with one registering 6.0 on the Richter scale has struck Alaska's village of Kaktovik which is part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge where the Trump administration plans to allow oil drilling, but no injuries or damage were reported.
The quake, initially measured at a magnitude 6.5, was followed by around 200 aftershocks, the largest of which was a 6.0 tremor, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
Reuters reported the temblor, which occurred just before 7 a.m. (1500 GMT), was the most powerful on record to hit Alaska’s oil-producing North Slope, said Paul Huang, a seismologist and deputy director of the National Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska.
The quake had no impact on operations of the Trans Alaska Pipeline system that carries North Slope crude 800 miles (1,300 km) to the marine terminal at Valdez, according to a statement from Alyeska, the consortium that runs the pipeline.
The two mag 6+ quakes bring the total to 3 major quakes in August and brings the total this year to 56 which is 5 less than at the same stage last year.
