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...

Outflow of lava is at 2 million cubic meters per day and heading towards Legazpi City and Daraga town as Mount Mayon remains at danger level

The lava in one of the channels on Mount Mayon has advanced 300 meters since Friday according to the latest bulletin of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) released on Sunday at 8 a.m.
According to Phivolcs's latest 24-hour observation of Mayon's state of unrest, from four kilometers Friday, the lava has flowed to 4.3 kilometers on the Bonga-Buyuan Gully towards Legazpi City.
The lava flow on the Miisi Gully towards Daraga town, on the other hand, has reached 3.2 kilometers.
Mariton Bornas, chief of Phivolcs' Volcano Monitoring and Eruption Prediction division, said that it was still hard to tell if the lava would reach up to six kilometers just like it did in December 29, 2009. "It is hard to say because the lava could also split and branch out to other channels," Bornas told the Inquirer.
Bornas also said that in their calculations, the average outflow of lava per day is at 2 million cubic meters.
According to Phivolcs, during the last 24-hour monitoring of Mayon, the volcano emitted another ash column that reached 500 meters high and one weak lava fountaining event that lasted for a little more than half a minute.
Also, 55 volcanic quakes and nine rockfall events were recorded.
According to Cedric Daep, chief of Albay Public Safety and Emergency Management Office, the village center nearest to the gully is about seven to eight kilometers away.
Alert Level 4 is still raised over Mayon and Phivolcs maintains that residents must stay away from the 8-kilometer danger zone.
