  • Self-help institutions in developing countries.
  • This study is analysing self-help institutions in developing countries as primary groups focussing on their external/economic and internal/organizational autonomy. Preconditions for successful interaction of self-help and external assistance by self
  • Self-organization and landscape evolution
  • This article examines the question of geomorphic self-organization in the context of broad-scale, long-term landscape evolution. Geomorphic perspectives on self-organization are first briefly reviewed. Then, the necessary and sufficient conditions
  • for a self-organizing geomorphic system are outlined. Examples are examined. Finally, two broad classes of landscape evolution, the cases of increasing and decreasing relief, are shown to differ fundamentally with respect to self-organization.
  • Divergence, convergence, and self-organization in landscapes
  • Channel geometry ; Chaos ; Concept ; Divergence ; Estuary ; Geomorphology ; Humid environment ; Landform evolution ; Landscape ; Model ; North Carolina ; Self-organizing behaviour ; United States of America ; Vegetation
  • This paper presents a theory of spatially divergent self-organization related to the latter, showing that autogenic differentiation is directly linked to dynamical instability and chaos. The determination of the self-organization properties
  • of self-organization concepts and methods in physical geography.

  • A definition of self-organization of a composite geomorphological system is given in relationship to the system's functioning, self-regulation, dynamic equilibrium. A significance of positive and negative feedback is shown for the process
  • of the relief self-regulation, structural mechanisms of fluvial systems self-organization and factor relativity of topography are described. Possibilities are outlined of the geomorphic processes control by indirect influence on the self-regulation mechanism
  • Heterogeneity in the determinants of local self-employment growth by gender, age and selected industry
  • Employment ; Entrepreneurship ; Gender ; Industrial sector ; Industrial structure ; Industry ; Producer services ; Regional disparities ; Self-employment ; United States of America
  • This study explores the determinants of self-employment growth across US regions and by gender, age group and industry. It finds that self-employment growth was faster for women than for men; that growth in the 45–64-year age group outpaced growth
  • in the age 20–44-year group; and that growth was much faster in professional and business services than in healthcare. The regression results suggest that there is significant heterogeneity in the impact of regional characteristics on self-employment growth

  • GIS and the geographical self
  • Entrikin, chair of the UCLA Geography Department, is concerned with the conflict between Herbert Mead's I, an autonomous agent, and the me, the self defined by others. GIS is increasingly the me of geography that threatens to overwhelm the I
  • Rice self-sufficiency and rice research priorities in Ghana
  • Ghana's quest for self-sufficiency in rice is examined. Two issues are addressed. First, the social profitability of a policy of import substitution for rice in Ghana is examined from a national viewpoint. Second, the perspective gained is used
  • Planned communities, self-containment and commuting: a cross-national perspective
  • The paper examines the association between how self-contained new towns and how their residents and workers commute, drawing upon experiences in the US, the UK, metropolitan Paris and greater Stockholm.
  • Measurement of self-affinity on surfaces as a trial application of fractal geometry to landform analysis
  • The present study discusses the meaning of self-affinity for landscapes, and examines the possibility of its application to landform analysis.
  • Arab agriculture, prospects for self sufficiency
  • Altough the relative importance of agricultural sector in the Arab world is declining as the importance of oil rises, problems and prospects of a policy for self sufficiency. Nature of the food problem, surplus or deficit. Strategies to minimize
  • The self-regulatory role of relief in surface evolution in Environmental and dynamic geomorphology.
  • Variations in the extensions of the particular landforms can be explained by their self-development. The morphometric analyses carried out by author allow him to draw the conclusion that it is not only geomorphic processes that shape the surface
  • Self-provided housing: the first world's hidden housing arm
  • Self-provided housing is often a major element in the expansion of European metropoles and it is not associated with backwardness, peripherality, or lack of market development. It lowers the money cost of housing and ensures higher quality
  • , and it enlarges the choices of middle-income nuclear families. It can have important effects on the housebuilding industry. There are various models for a successful self-provides housing sector.
  • We sing our home, We dance our land : indigenous self-determination and contemporary geopolitics in Australian popular music
  • An analysis of the cultural apparatus, recordings, and popular performance events of indigenous musicians reveals the construction of arenas of empowerment at a variety of geographical scales, within which genuine spaces of Aboriginal self
  • -determination and self expression can exist. The emergence of a vibrant Aboriginal popular music scene requires a rethinking of Australian music, and appeals for greater recognition of Aboriginal artists' sophisticated geopolitical strategies.
