11.1 Five steps to invention

I've looked at what motivates people and organisations to invent. I'll look more closely now at what's actually involved in inventing something.

Wherever invention occurs, whether with a lone inventor or in a creative team within an organisation, there seem to be common factors involved. There have been many attempts over the past 100 years to explain the creative process that occurs while people are attempting to solve problems. I'm going to combine ideas from two such models of the st

Shirley Temple reciting poetry by Rose Fyleman
From the 1935 film Curly Top. Elizabeth (Shirley Temple) recites two short poems for her uncle Edward (John Boles). The first poem, "Before," was published in Punch magazine in 1919, with the author named simply as "R.F." -- probably Rose Fyleman, a British children's poet who also wrote the second poem Shirley recites, entitled "Singing-Time."

3.1 The expansion of the right to confidence

While there is no common law right to privacy, the law relating to breach of confidence has been expanded to a degree which suggests that privacy claims are now being given greater protection. The right to confidence has been expanded in recent cases such as Douglas and Others v Hello! Ltd (2001). In this case the Court of Appeal ruled that individuals have a right to personal privacy which was grounded in the doctrine of confidence. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones had granted

3.1 Introduction

As this history might suggest, defining and conceptualising rights is not straightforward. This section aims to provide a working definition of ‘rights’ and introduce some important debates about rights. It aims to supply some conceptual tools to use when the discussion moves to the sphere of international politics.

Introduction

This course introduces the important distinction between our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch and the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities. Concepts of the analogue universe in which we live and the digital world we create are explained. The way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world is explored.

This OpenLearn course provides a sample of Level 1

5 Play structure

Just like a novel or a poem, a play will have some sort of structure. The traditional plot of a play will consist of an exposition, action leading to a climax, and a denouement or resolution. A certain amount of information about characters and events is necessary at the start of a play, and sometimes an explanation of what has happened in the past is required for the audience to make sense of what is to follow: all this is accomplished through the exposition. Some skill

3.8 How computers work with numbers

Today's mass media wrap computers in a damaging myth. The message of TV thrillers seems to be that computers are inscrutable, subtle devices, far beyond the ordinary person's comprehension. Only spectacularly gifted, young, ‘cool’ people seem to be capable of working with them successfully. For such individuals, a few clicks on the keyboard work miracles. The myth suggests that when we less gifted mortals use a computer and something goes wrong, it's our fault. We're simply too stupid for

4.3 Nuclear fuel transport and processing

Most radioactive materials connected with the UK nuclear power industry are transported by rail in massive transport flasks which have been shown in tests to survive high-speed impacts without fracturing. In fact, it is the highly radioactive spent nuclear fuels being transported to reprocessing sites that constitute the greatest danger.

Power stations unavoidably discharge radioactive gases to the atmosphere, but these escapes are sufficiently dilute not to be regarded as clinically ha

3.1 Belonging to a group

Because work groups are of central significance in the functioning of an organisation they have been studied intensively, and much has been written about group processes. In this reading it would be inappropriate to attempt to review this vast literature, which covers an enormous range of topics and aspects of groups. Instead, I focus attention here on two particular aspects of groups. First, I examine the nature of the contracts within a group: what it is that people gain from belonging to a
