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.

Translated from Spanish
A massive fish die off was recorded in recent days in the La Chanchera lagoon, located between the towns of Laboulaye and La Carlota, in the southeast of the province of Cordoba.
The phenomenon, which worried the locals, was produced by the intense heat of the last week’s heat wave, when temperatures surpassed the 38º centigrade.
Roberto Gatti, member of the Board of Directors of the Hunting and Fishing Club of Laboulaye, in dialogue with Cadena 3 indicated that the main species affected is the pejerrey.

Massive fish mortality was recorded in recent days in the La Chanchera lagoon, located between the towns of Laboulaye and La Carlota, in the southeast of the province of Cordoba.

The phenomenon, which worried the locals, was produced by the intense heat of the last weeks, whose temperatures surpassed the 38º centigrade.

Roberto Gatti, member of the Board of Directors of the Hunting and Fishing Club of Laboulaye, in dialogue with Cadena 3 indicated that the main species affected is the pejerrey.
It’s a massive die off added Gatti

As for the causes of the episode, Gatti pointed to the lack of oxygen due to the intense heat. We had weeks of 38º and 40º. Degree heat, on the day of the die off, it was 29º.
A microscopic algae that is generated in these circumstances, which is very oxygen consuming causes the fish to die of suffocation. "

And he lamented: "99% are pejerreyes, although there are some catfish and tents, as well as mojarras. We cannot do anything, it's a natural problem."
