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...

What caused mysterious strange seismic waves that shook the world on November 11th leaving scientists and experts baffled

Thank you Dr Carol Rosin

Mysterious, strange seismic waves that shook the world on November 11 are baffling researchers and has the internet buzzing.
The seismic waves began roughly 15 miles off the shores of a Mayotte, a French island sandwiched between Africa and the northern tip of Madagascar.
According to National Geographic, the seismic waves buzzed across Africa, ringing sensors in Zambia, Kenya, and Ethiopia.
They traversed vast oceans, humming across Chile, New Zealand, Canada, and even Hawaii nearly 11,000 miles away.
These waves didn't just zip by; they rang for more than 20 minutes.
And yet, it seems, no human felt them.
Only one person noticed the odd signal on the U.S. Geological Survey's real-time seismogram displays.
An earthquake enthusiast who uses the handle @matarikipax saw the curious zigzags and posted images of them to Twitter.
That small action kicked off another ripple of sorts, as researchers around the world attempted to suss out the source of the waves.
Was it a meteor strike?
A submarine volcano eruption?
An ancient sea monster rising from the deep?
“I don't think I've seen anything like it,” says Göran Ekström, a seismologist at Columbia University who specializes in unusual earthquakes.
The waves are similar to those typically seen after large earthquakes, which are known to travel great distances – but, no such earthquake took place.
