Fishermen found safe and sound

Three Taiwanese fishermen were rescued yesterday from a small uninhabited island in the South Pacific. The men had disappeared for more than three months.

They had left Taiwan in a small fishing boat and had planned a week-long trip. On their fifth day, however, they were caught in a typhoon, and it badly damaged their boat. Fortunately, none of the men was hurt. After the storm had passed, though, they discovered that the engine wouldn’t start, so their boat just drifted at sea for over a month. During this time, the fishermen caught fish to eat and drank rain water to stay alive.

Finally, the boat drifted toward a small island. When it got close enough, the men jumped out and swam to shore. On the island, they found fresh fruit and vegetables, and they continued to catch fish to eat.

The fishermen had lived on the island for two months when a passing ship rescued them. Although the three men had lost a lot of weight, they were still in fairly good shape. Their families had thought that the fishermen had lost their lives during the typhoon. They were surprised and happy that the ship had found them and that they were “safe and sound”.

The Global Village

More and more often, the term global village is used to describe the world and its people. In a typical village, however, everyone knows everyone else and the people face the same kind of problems. How can the world be a village, when it is the home to almost 7.5 billion people? Technological changes in the past century have made the global village possible.

With the help of technological achievements people now are communicating by means of satellites and computers. These high-tech communications allow news and ideas to travel quickly from country to country. People in one country now know about their neighbours around the globe in dramatic new ways. Through the Internet, we can get information from computers anywhere and carry on electronic conversations with people everywhere. Through television programmes transmitted by satellite, we can learn much about many cultures.

What will happen as we move into the middle of twenty-first century and beyond? Almost certainly the development of the global village will continue. Not only is this possible, but the challenges that the world faces – for example, global warming, pollution, population growth, etc. – will make it necessary.
