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...

Vocano Uptick: The Nevados de Chillán volcano erupt's a dense plume of ash 3600 m into the sky

Scroll down for incredible video.
A busy week for volcano activity as The Nevados de Chillán volcano is the latest to show activity.
The activity at the volcano has again increased.
While degassing and weak, sporadic ash emissions have become more frequent again since mid July, a more intense phase of activity took place yesterday: starting around 17:10 local time, the volcano erupted a dense plume of ash from the crater that rose several hundreds of meters to 3500-3600 m altitude and quickly dispersed.
Ash fall occurred near the summit.
The activity lasted a few minutes, but was the strongest since the volcano's activity in May this year, reports Volcano Discovery.
The Nevados de Chillán volcano in the Bío Bío Region of Chile has been on and off degassing in 2016.
Activity has increased there recently and yesterday the volcano began erupting ash, smoke and gases. Skier Jess McMillan was on the mountain taking some runs and caught the activity on video. McMillan is in Chile with Powder Quest, a company that runs snowboard and ski adventures in South America and Japan.
Others are also at the resort, Nevados de Chillán, and have also documented the fumarolic emissions. The website Volcano Discovery has a good log of the volcano's activity, and says that scientists had detected increased levels of sulfur oxide and earthquakes, and predicted that increased activity may be coming.
Unsure if magma is present, it seems to be a situation not of immediate danger.
