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...

New research showed that the Arctic loses 14,000 tons of water (ice loss) each second,  840,000 tons every minute, 50,400,000 per hour or more than a billion tons a day as melting of the ice in the areas around the North Pole tripled, news agency NTB reported Sunday.
The research was published in the journal Environmental Research Letters and was conducted by scientists from Chile, Canada, the United States, the Netherlands and Norway.
"We do not have to wait until the end of the century to see the problems associated with sea level rise. The problems are here now," said Jason Box, professor of the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS).
According to the report, ice melting in the Arctic has since 1971 led to an increase in sea level of 2.3 centimeters.
Moreover, there has been ice melting in the Earth's southernmost continent Antarctica around the South Pole, as well as the fact that water expands as it gets warmer.
The combination of these factors poses a major climate threat.
