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...

Another major quake hits Papua New Guinea (13 this year) as a canyon-shaped hole stretching nearly 1 million km faces Earth on our Sun

USGS
Another powerful magnitude 6.5 quake, reduced to a 6.3 by USGS has struck the remote highlands of Papua New Guinea early on Saturday, the European earthquake monitoring service reported.
The very shallow quake was only two km (1.2 miles) deep and 93 km (58 miles) southwest of Porgera in the Enga province, said the EMSC. Quakes are common in Papua New Guinea, which sits on the Pacific’s “Ring of Fire”, a hotspot for seismic activity due to friction between tectonic plates.
Incredibly of the 34 major quakes to strike the planet this year 13 of them have happened on or around Papua New Guinea.
Today's two major quake is the 3rd of April and brought the total for the year to 34.
Of the 34 major quakes reported this year, 33 of them have occurred during coronal activity on the sun, see picture below.

After a two-week transit around the far-side of the Sun, a giant hole has reemerged over the sun's eastern limb set to bring spectacular auroras and put the planet on major quake watch.
According to Spaceweather.com,  a wide hole in the sun's atmosphere is facing Earth and spewing a stream of solar wind toward our planet (more major quakes can be expected in the coming days.)
 The canyon-shaped hole is remarkably wide, stretching more than 700,000 km from end to end.
As a result, Earth could be under the influence of its gaseous emissions for days.
