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...

A magnitude 6.6 earthquake Vanuatu islands is the 91st major quake of 2019 already 61 more than the entire year total of 1919

USGS: Around 70 aftershocks from the mag 9 quake which caused the Fukushima disaster.

A magnitude 6.6 earthquake struck the Vanuatu islands last night in the South Pacific rounding up the July total to 14 and 91 in 2019 so far which is already 61 more than the whole year total back in 1919.
2019 has seen a rise in major quakes (m6+).

Major quakes have increased at an incredible level in the last hundred years, of course, detection technology is better than it was, however, mag 7+ quakes in the same time frame have remained remarkably stable, below I have listed mag 6+ every 10 years since 1900.

In 1900 only 3 mag 6+ quakes were recorded.
1910, 10 magnitude 6+ quakes were recorded.
1920, 28 magnitude 6+ quakes were recorded.
1930, 47 magnitude 6+ quakes were recorded.
1940, 42 magnitude 6+ quakes were recorded.
1950 saw a huge spike, 138 magnitude 6+ quakes were recorded.
1960, 153 magnitude 6+ quakes were recorded.
1970, 160 magnitude 6+ quakes were recorded.
1980, 96 magnitude 6+ quakes were recorded.
1990, 154 magnitude 6+ quakes were recorded.
2000, 160 magnitude 6+ quakes were recorded.
2010, 175 magnitude 6+ quakes were recorded.
2011 is the highest count of magnitude 6+ quakes when 2017 were recorded, however, around 70 of them were aftershocks from the mag 9 quake which caused the Fukushima disaster.
