A massive dose of information about global trade

Writing about web page,12458,794377,00.html

As a slightly early regular update to this media diary, here is a link to a Guardian special report on Fair Trade with links to many recent news items on Fair Trade and Trade Justice (which are distinct issues). It includes articles on why the WTO is Satan incarnate, what's wrong with agricultural subsidies in Europe and the US both under WTO rules and in terms of Trade Justice, plans to develop Fair Trade brands, and case studies and analysis of global trade. Happy reading.

Why is there always a queue in Open Access?

Has anyone else noticed that nine times out of ten, when you go into Open Access, you have to queue up for a while to get a computer? I'm sure it wasn't anywhere near as bad last year, so what's going on? Are there suddenly so many more students that Open Access can no longer cope? Did the number of computers decrease when the shiny new flatscreens were put in? It's quite irritating if you have thirty minutes between lectures if you have to spend five or ten waiting for a computer to become available.
