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.

Hundreds of sharks wash up dead on an Iranian island local fishermen thought to be responsible

Hundreds of dead sharks have washed up on the Iranian Shif island.
The sharks are thought to have been killed for their fins as fishermen catch the sharks for their fins before throwing the dead sharks back into the sea, leaving them to wash up on the shore.
The fins are believed to have medicinal properties, officials say, however catching the sharks is illegal.
The fine for catching a shark is about $7,000.
According to the BBC after cutting off the fins, they throw the dead sharks in the sea because they fear they will be fined.
The sharks end up washing up on the beach, an environment official in the southern port city of Bushehr is quoted as saying by IRNA news agency.
The price for 1kg (2.2lb) of shark fin is about $2 (£1.50), the director-general of the Environmental Protection Organisation, Hoseyn Delshab, said.
Shark fishing was banned in Iran in 2014 over concerns the population was facing extinction.
