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...

Chirinkotan volcano (Kuriles, Russia) spews ash and steam 5 km into the sky

Ash emissions were recorded on satellite imagery on 26 July, producing a plume that rose to 15,000 ft (4.5 km) altitude and drifted NW.
During yesterday and today, the plume dissipated and no new emissions were detected (VAAC Tokyo).
A large explosion seems to have occurred a few hours ago at the volcano.
A possible ash plume penetrating a thick deck of clouds was spotted by VAAC Tokyo on Himawari-8 satellite data.
If the data interpretation is correct, an explosive eruption has occurred that produced a plume of approx. 10 km altitude which is drifting north.
The remote volcano forming the uninhabited island of the same name is one of the most active of the Kurile Chain.
It has often had relatively large explosive eruptions which pose a threat to air traffic on the busy N-America E-Asia routes.
It is not monitored other than by satellite imagery.
