Definition and Research
Attention is the behavioral and cognitive process of selectively concentrating on a discrete aspect of information, whether deemed subjective or objective, while ignoring other perceivable information.
A scooter or motor scooter is a motorcycle with step-through frame and a platform for the rider’s feet. Elements of scooter design have been present in some of the earliest motorcycles, and motorcycles identifiable as scooters have been made from 1914 or earlier.

Scooters are popular for personal transport, partly due to being cheap to buy, easy to operate and convenient to park and store. Most vintage scooters and some newer retro models have an axle-mounted engine.
Newsworthiness is Defined
In some countries and at some points in history, what news media and the public have considered “newsworthy” has met different definitions, such as the notion of news values.
Sufficiently important news would be repeated quickly and often, and could spread by word of mouth over a large geographic area.
Even as printing presses came into use in Europe, news for the general public often travelled orally via monks, travelers, town criers, etc.
Visible chains of long distance signaling, known as optical telegraphy, have also been used throughout history to convey limited types of information.
Thus, political, religious, and commercial interests have historically controlled, expanded, and monitored communications channels.
The spread of paper and the printing press from China to Europe preceded a major advance in the transmission of news and new channels.
Service-Commodity Goods Continuum
Business services are a recognisable subset of Economic services, and share their characteristics. The essential difference is that Business are concerned about the building of Service Systems in order to deliver value to their customers and to act in the roles of Service Provider and Service Consumer.
Most products fall between these two extremes. For example, a restaurant provides a physical good, but also provides services in the form of ambience, the setting and clearing of the table, etc.
And although some utilities actually deliver physical goods — like water utilities which actually deliver water — utilities are usually treated as services.
Wood is a porous and fibrous structural tissue found in the stems and roots of trees and other woody plants. It is an organic material, a natural composite of cellulose fibers that are strong in tension and embedded in a matrix of lignin that resists compression.
Wood has been used for thousands of years for fuel, as a construction material, for making tools and weapons, furniture and paper, and as a feedstock for the production of purified cellulose and its derivatives, such as cellophane and cellulose acetate.
As an abundant, carbon-neutral renewable resource, woody materials have been of intense interest as a source of renewable energy. In 1991 approximately 3.5 billion cubic meters of wood were harvested. Dominant uses were for furniture and building construction.
In 2005, the growing stock of forests worldwide was about 434 billion cubic meters, 47% of which was commercial.
