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...

The Department of Animal Health under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development reported on March 22 that a new outbreak of A/H5N1 virus has been discovered in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho.
The A/H5N1 avian flu was found at a household farm in Thoi Hoa ward, O Mon district on March 15, with nearly 400 sick and dead ducks.
The local livestock and veterinary department has coordinated with the municipal authorities to take measures to prevent the spread of the disease.
It worked to destroy all sick and dead ducks, sprayed chemicals on the farm and surrounding areas, gave vaccination to flocks of poultry in the ward and adjacent wards.
The municipal authorities also asked relevant agencies to closely monitor the disease development and control the transport and trading of poultry in the city. So far,
Vietnam has recorded five A/H5N1 outbreaks in Cao Bang, Bac Ninh, Ha Tinh Can Tho and Tay Ninh, and two A/H5N6 outbreaks in the provinces of Quang Tri and Cao Bang.
According to the Department of Animal Health, Vietnam faces a high risk of infection of new avian flu virus strains, such as A/H7N9, A/H5N2 and A/H5N8 via illegal transport, trading and consumption of poultry, particularly in northern border provinces.
The agency urged all localities to proactively prevent and control avian influenza and strengthen their supervision and punishment on poultry smuggling while monitoring their areas to promptly detect and handle any emerging outbreaks.
