One might think of the different interpretations of internationally recognised notions of rights and justice as running along a spectrum, from which we shall now identify four different positions.

• The first interpretation would argue that, overall, the extension of rights to the international sphere has been benign and effective. It has led and will lead to further successful claims for justice.

Designed products surround us all and range from bus tickets to buildings. One of the primary considerations in all fields of design is â€˜usabilityâ€™ and, increasingly, the phenomenon of â€˜user-centred designâ€™. This can focus on physical attributes of products but increasingly it depends on an understanding of our cognitive abilities required to operate even simple products. All people studying this unit will have some experience of designs that are not usable (perhaps mobile phones or c

To make short crust pastry, one recipe book says â€˜use one part of fat to two parts of flourâ€™; another recipe says â€˜use fat and flour in the ratio of one to twoâ€™; and yet another says â€˜use half as much fat as flourâ€™. These are different ways of expressing the same ratio. Ratios are often expressed as fractions. So in this case:

The auditory system is able to process sounds in such a way that, although several may be present simultaneously, it is possible to focus upon the message of interest. However, in experiments on auditory attention, there have been contradictory results concerning the fate of the unattended material:

• The auditory system processes mixed sounds in such a way that it is possible to focus upon a single wanted message.

• Unattended material a

One of the key tasks of social marketers is to develop effective messages which provide individuals and organisations with the information required to achieve behavioural change. Communication represents the â€˜transmission of information, ideas, attitudes, or emotion from one person or group to anotherâ€™ (Fill, 2002, p. 31). There are many models and frameworks available to help with communications planning. First, an understanding of how communication works is illustrated in Author(s): The Open University

Everyday experience teaches us that unconfined objects are free to move in three independent directions. I can move my hand up or down, left or right, backwards or forwards. By combining movements in these three directions I can, at least in principle, move my hand to any point in space. The fact that there are just three independent directions, and that these suffice to reach any point, shows that the space in which my hand moves is three-dimensional.

Finding your paperwork or electronic files can be a problem. You may find that even if you do have some sort of filing system, your structure soon gets quite large with files in multiple locations, which can be hard to navigate. You may find yourself making arbitrary decisions about which folder to place a document in. It may make sense now but in the future, when you look where you think it should be, it's not there.

At times like this you may resort to the search command from the Wind
