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.

2290 tonnes carbon dioxide emission rate - the largest values recorded in recent years has experts worried Mt Ruapehu volcano New Zealand is about to blow

RSOE Alert map
The daily seismic activity on the islands is legendary so it's no surprise one of its colossi is rumbling back to life...
Temperatures and gas emissions are increasing at Mt Ruapehu. The recent fine weather allowed GeoNet to take readings over the volcano in the middle of the North Island.
The carbon dioxide emission rate on Thursday was 2290 tonnes per day - one of the largest values recorded in recent years.
The lake temperature was 37 degrees Celcius, which was near the top of its usual range.
Volcanic seismic tremor remained at moderate levels.
However, duty volcanologist Tony Hurst said they decided to keep the alert level at 1.
(The volcanic alert levels define the current status of volcanos in New Zealand, with 1 indicating minor unrest and 5 an eruption.)
"This is something that happens every few years, we get higher temperatures and higher gas concentrations, but it's been sustained for a certain amount of time so we thought we would inform the public," Hurst said.
"It's reasonably likely it will settle down soon."
The fine weather also allowed for water samples to be taken from the crater, and analysis of those was underway.
