International rescuers on Friday abandoned their search for survivors in the main city of the Indonesian island that bore the brunt of a powerful earthquake four days ago.
A U.N. official said teams would move to other Nias island towns that suffered damage in Monday night’s magnitude-8.7 quake.
“There are no (more) survivors here,” said Olaf Lingjerde, a U.N. search and rescue official. “We found one person alive yesterday morning, that was the last person. It’s been 24 hours since then and there’s been nothing.”
In the early hours of Thursday, a 13-year-old girl was pulled out alive from a collapsed five-story building 52 hours after the quake.
Four international teams have spent the days since the quake combing the wreckage of about 200 collapsed houses in the city of Gunung Sitoli but have only managed to pull a few people alive from the rubble.
“After three days the survivor rate goes down, especially when you have this weather,” Lingjerde said, referring to heavy rain that has fallen in recent days. “There are no reports from locals of any more sounds” from under the rubble.
Some of the rescuers were taking helicopters to remote parts of the island to resume searching there and the Antara news agency reported that Hungary was sending a team of searchers with special sniffer dogs to help.
U.N. relief coordinator Francois Desruisseauz said that a ship carrying 350 tons of rice, water, tinned fish and other supplies arrived at Nias late Thursday and the food was being distributed to hungry survivors Friday.
The rice was shipped from warehouses in Aceh Province, where it was being stored to give to victims of the Dec. 26 quake and tsunami catastrophe that killed more than 126,000 in Indonesia and left about half a million homeless.

Nelson Mandela’s greatest pleasure, his most private moment, is watching the sunset with the music of Handel or Tchaikovsky playing.
Locked up in his cell during daylight hours, robbed of music, both these simple pleasures were denied for decades. With his fellow prisoners, concerts were organized when possible, particularly at Christmas time, where they would sing. Nelson Mandela finds music very uplifting, and takes a keen interest not only in European classical music but also in African choral music and many talents in South African music. But one voice stands out above all—that of Paul Robeson, whom he describes as his hero.
The years in jail strengthened habits that were already fixed: the disciplined eating rule of an athlete began in the 1940s, as did the early morning exercise. Still today Nelson Mandela is up by 4:30 am, irrespective of how late he has worked in the previous evening. By 5 am he has begun his routine exercise that lasts at least an hour. Breakfast is by 6：30, when the day’s newspapers are read. The day’s work has begun.
With a standard working day of at least 12 hours, time management is critical and Nelson Mandela is extremely impatient with unpunctuality, regarding it as insulting to those you are dealing with.
Mandela accepted the Nobel Peace Prize as an accolade to all people who have worked for peace and stood against racism. It was as much an award to his person as it was to the ANC and all South African people. In particular, he regards it as a tribute to the people of Norway who stood against the racial segregation while many in the world were silent.
6. Which of the following music forms is not mentioned that Mandela enjoys?
A. European classical music.
B. African choral music.
C. Christmas songs.
D. South African music.
7. Why did not Nelson Mandela enjoy watching the sunset for years?
A. Because he was occupied in state affairs.
B. Because he was in prison then.
C. Because he was busy enjoying different music.
D. Because he was ready do get a new hobby.
8. What’s Nelson Mandela’s attitude towards time management?
A. Neglecting time means being rude to others.
B. Time is money and wasting time is killing oneself.
C. He is impatient with people who are late.
D. Unpunctuality should be criticized.
9. What can we infer from Paragraph 3?
A. He was once an athlete.
B. He was forced to form a habit.
C. He has a strict diet.
D. He doesn’t often think his work much.
10. Why does he regard the Nobel Peace Prize as a tribute to the people at Norway?
A. Because he thinks the people of Norway are great.
B. Because he thinks it was the people of Norway that trust him.
C. Because he thinks the Nobel Peace Prize is valuable.
D. Because he thinks the Nobel Peace Prize stands for being against racial discrimination.

People who live in heavily industrialized areas do not get as much sunshine as they should. Dust floating over a city at the height of more than 4,000 feet cut between 20 and 50 percent of the sunlight and up to 90 percent of the ultraviolet light. But dust is not the only thing to worry about. When materials for burning are burned, whether in factory or in a house, or in the engine of a car, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide are given off. Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere prevents loss of heat and keeps warmth, and so raising the temperature of each slowly. This could actually change the climate all over the world. Carbon monoxide is very poisonous and quite small amounts can kill.
Everybody wants to have a motor car, and sometimes when we are struck in a traffic jam it seems as though everybody has already got one. Unfortunately, while giving us so much pleasure, cars are also poisoning us. The amount of dangerous substances sent out by a car is quite astonishing. Did you know, for example, that a hundred cars can produce a third of ton of carbon monoxide and many other poisonous substances every day? When you realized that in Great Britain there are over 1,800,000 motor vehicles, you can see the greatness of the problem.
What is the answer then? Scientists are trying to produce a car engine that gives no pollution at all. But what about the millions of cars already in use now? Must they all be thrown away? It would probably be very expensive to make changes in them so that they will not pollute.
1. According to the passage, people in big cities should ______.
A. get rid of their cars
B. get more sunshine
C. move to the countryside
D. wear masks over nose and mouth
2. What is not harmful to health in the atmosphere?
A. Carbon dioxide. B. Carbon monoxide.
C. Dust. D. Enough ultraviolet rays.
3. According to the passage, how much carbon monoxide do the cars in Great Britain give off every day?
A. About 600,000 tons.
B. More than 600,000 tons.
C. About 500,000 tons.
D. Less than 500,000 tons.
4. Which of the following statement is NOT right?
A. No answer has been found to do away with the pollution caused by cars.
B. Millions of cars have already been equipped with new engines that give off no dirty gases.
C. It costs much to make the present cars free from pollution.
Ｄ. Scientists never stop looking for new ways to make the atmosphere clear.
5. What do you think people should not do to prevent pollution?
A. Take buses or walk when possible.
B. Drive cars which are good in quality.
C. Use high-quality oil in their cars.
D. Keep the engine of their cars going on when they are waiting for a train to pass.
London has a new magazine. But it is not printed on paper. Everyone who has a television can receive it because it is on TV. In order to read this magazine, you have a decoder. Each page of it is numbered, so you only have to dial the number to choose which subject you want to read about. There is wide choice—everything is included from cooking to the latest sports news. If you want to read the news, the first thing you have to turn to is index (索引) page which has an easy-to-remember page number, 100 for example. Then you start choosing what you want to read. The news is on page 101 to 109, so you push the numbers and the news appears on the screen. But the weather is terrible, so you decide to go shopping and dial 2162 for a list of the week’s best bargains. But should you drive or take a train? To answer that question you only have to press 189 for the traffic report. It is very simple to use. But probably the best thing about the service is that it is being updated all the time. Journalists type new materials directly onto the screen and whole pages of the magazine can be replaced in minutes. London already had three services. One, transmitted (输送) by ITV, is called ORACLE while the other two, on BBC, are called CEEFAX because they let you see facts. Although CEEFAX and ORACLE have been operating for some time, they have not been well publicized. BBC engineers do not think that their idea will ever replace books and newspapers because they can be taken with you everywhere. But many people would agree that this is a breakthrough (突破) as great as the invention of printing which could change not just our reading habits but our whole way of life.
6. The novelty (新颖) of the magazine lies in ______.
A. its paperlessness
B. its unique viewpoint
