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...

Ras Al Khaimah residents United Arab Emirates woke on Monday to their beach littered with tens of thousands of dead fish reason unknown


Reports of animal and fish die off's are mostly reported in local newspapers or websites so the problem is often missed by the greater public, however, since around 2011 the problem has become global thanks to certain websites dedicated to reporting the phenomenon, literally millions of species are dying every day and the cause of many of the deaths are unknown.
Residents of Al Rams area in Ras Al Khaimah woke up on Monday morning to an astonishing sight: a large stretch of the beach was littered with thousands of dead fish.
The small Sardines lined a large part of the 1.6km shoreline.
The cause of the mass death was unknown, and the Ras Al Khaimah Environment agency said they are investigating possible causes.
Dr Saif Al Ghais, executive director of the Ras Al Khaimah Environmental Protection and Development Authority EPDA-RAK , said the department met in the evening at around 6 pm to discuss the incident and identify its cause.
The department formed a team of investigators and reviewed the results of water sample analysis by the Environmental Protection and Development in addition to dead sardine sample analysis.

Dr Al Ghais pointed out that the department had received complaints from the residents of the area on Monday morning as the stench of the dead fish was keeping people away.
Dr Al Ghais said the preliminary results of the investigation suggested that fishermen may have overloaded their vehicles, causing some of their catch to fall.
The probe continues.
