The Internet, or the Net, as it is more often called in the English speaking countries, is considered to be one of the most important inventions of the twentieth century. Some people say that it is like having thousands of consultants who are ready to answer any of your questions.
It is a cheap and reliable source of information — and not only that. You can also send documents all over the world, sample new music, visit museums all over the world, read books, exchange letters with your friends in another continent and receive their answer in a quarter of an hour, sell and buy things, play games, read the latest news and do a lot of other things.
But one shouldn't treat the Net as means of amusement when there is nothing else to do. In fact, the Internet has nowadays become a very important means of business correspondence, financial transaction marketing, and much more. In fact, in the nearest future it will become as (or more) important as fax or telephone.
The Internet stands for international network of computers that are linked together to exchange information. The computers are joined through high-speed connections. To get on the Net, all you have to do is to connect your PC to any of these networked computers via an Internet Access Provider. The Net has capabilities for cheap, global and immediate communication. It may grow to dominate areas of publishing, news and education, banking and customer support.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, proclaimed by the General Assembly in 1948, sets out basic rights and freedoms to which all women and men are entitled — among them the right to life, liberty and nationality, to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, to work, to be educated, to take part in government.
Together with the Declaration, these rights constitute the International Bill of Human Rights.
The Declaration laid the groundwork for more than 80 convention and declarations on human rights, including conventions to eliminate racial discrimination and discrimination against women; convention on the rights of the child; the status of refugees and the prevention оf genocide; and declarations on self-determination, enforced disappearances and the right to development.
With the standards-setting work nearly complete, the UN is shifting the emphasis of its human rights work to the implementation of human rights laws. The UN Commission on Human Rights, an intergovernmental body, holds public meetings to review the human rights performance of States.
Promoting respect for human rights is increasingly central to UN development assistance. In particular, the right to development is seen as part of a dynamic process, which integrates all civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights and improves the well-being of all individuals in a society. Key to the enjoyment of the right to development is the eradication of poverty, a major UN goal.
