Questioning Needs and Utility

A lot of discussion recent days on utility, needs, et al...

objectives, and utility or use value... Other fields (philosophy, history,
most recently economics) have had their paradigm shift and revolution over
their faith in reason and utility as universals.

Psych 101: The Psychological Basis for UI Design Rules
Jeff Johnson, UI Wizards

contradict each other.

animation patterns for things moving

I'm looking for good examples of an item moving from one place to another and how to make that clear to the user. The specific example is a selected line within a grid; the user will click an "accept" button on that line, and then the item will leave the grid of items to be reviewed and appear in a grid of approved items. Has anyone seen a nice animation that could help make it clear what is happening?
