Quelle formule de politesse a-t-on utiliser pour conclure notre lettre:
an extract from the BBC
I talk to my neighbour, who says she has spent 10 minutes just looking at a butterfly when she should be tidying up. Life seems unreal and time seems to unravel.
We keep telling ourselves time will put this right. With time, the aftershocks will lessen. With time, power and water and sewage will be restored. With time, our roads will be repaired. With time our houses will be rebuilt. With time.
But at the moment time goes slowly. Time brings us pain and anguish – and fear that we might not have the strength to get through this. Time brings despair because all that we have built up has gone and our future is in jeopardy.
Researchers are investigating the relationship between September’s Magnitude 7.1 quake and last month’s 6.3 event.
The latter is very much considered to be an aftershock from the first, even though they were separated by six months.
The former occurred about 40km to the west, rupturing a similar length of fault. The most recent quake ruptured about 15km of fault.
What scientists need to know now is the nature of any “seismic gap” between the two; that is, a segment of fault which was not broken in either tremor but which may have been loaded with additional strain because of both those events.
New Zealand girl, 14, uses body-board to fend off shark
A teenager from New Zealand has saved herself from the jaws of a shark by using her body-board to defend herself.
Fourteen-year-old Lydia Ward said she was at a beach near the southern city of Invercargill when the shark struck.
The shark, about 1.5m (4.9ft) in length, is reported to have lunged at her and tried to bite her hip.
Standing in water that only reached up to her waist at Oreti Beach, she said she hit the “big, grey, slippery thing” repeatedly with her body-board.
“I showed Dad and he didn’t really believe me but then I showed him my wetsuit with all the blood coming out and he believed me,” Lydia told Radio New Zealand.
Although not seriously injured, Lydia required hospital treatment for two of the deeper wounds.
Her mother told a local newspaper that Lydia thought she had accidentally stood on the shark before it had attacked her.
She said neither Lydia nor her 15-year-old brother, also in the water at the time of the attack, planned to go back into the sea in the very near future.
Shark attacks are very rare. Researchers say that more people die from bee stings and lightning strikes than shark attacks.
