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 Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR) has detected considerable number of dead fish on the beaches and within Kuwait Bay - urging Environment Public Authority (EPA) to act and stop the dumping of sewage water into the bay.
PAAAFR said over five tons of dead fish were removed from Kuwait beaches.
Informed sources alleged that some fishermen might have been using explosives to kill the fish so as to collect them later.
Meanwhile, Kuwait Fishermen Union has issued a statement expressing both sadness and alarm over the phenomenal death of fish and strongly refuted the accusations made by EPA - blaming fishermen for it.
In its statement, the Union urged EPA to investigate the cause of deaths transparently, instead of making groundless accusations .
Several lawmakers have criticized the relevant officials who had been exchanging accusations without actually solving the problem - which they said has almost become an annual one.
The Ministry of Health yesterday quashed social media reports claiming that it issued 'warning against eating seafood', especially contaminated fish that can cause cancer.
Neither the Ministry, nor its Food Lab has issued such statements, spokesman Dr Ahmad Al- Shatti, said in a press release.
"The Lab receives local and imported fish referred to it by the Kuwait Municipality.
So far, it has not examined the dead fish," he added.
The Ministry is coordinating and cooperating with the bodies concerned with food safety and the Environment Public Authority (EPA), Shatti said.
He urged citizens and expats not to buy fish from the unlicensed and unofficial outlets.
