5.3 5.3 Origins of the regionalist project

The origins of the regionalist project can be traced back to Leopold Kohr's The Breakdown of Nations, first published in 1957 (Kohr, 1986). By ‘nations’, Kohr actually meant nation states and in particular big states, for his book was a polemic against the ‘bigness’ of states as the source of modern ills. Indeed he saw excessive size as the main cause of all social problems and his ideas would later be successfully popularised by E.F. Schumacher's slogan and best-seller Smal

1.4.2 Winter storage in plants

Many plants that survive winter in a dormant state form storage organs below the ground which store nutrients during the winter, the rest of the plant withering away. Storage organs come in a variety of forms, including tap roots, bulbs, corms, rhizomes, root tubers and stem tubers (Figure 13). In the carrot, the root is greatly enlarged into a fleshy tap root; the bulbs of onions are modified leaves; crocus corms, iris rhizomes and dahlia tubers are modified stems, and the tubers of potatoes

Technical Paper 4 - The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) Project: Parent, Family a
Information on the characteristics of the parents, families, and children was collected by parental interview at the start of the study. This information was used to describe the sample in terms of the parents (labour market participation, socio-economic characteristics, qualifications, marital status and age), the family (composition, ethnicity and language), the child’s health, development and behaviour, the child’s activities in the home, the use of pre-school provision and childcare hist

4.2.7 Conjunctions

Conjunctions join together individual words, phrases and clauses (the components of sentences which are longer than a simple sentence of the type: ‘Everyone can enjoy learning Latin’). So-called co-ordinating conjunctions are such words as and and but, as in the following examples:

  • fish and chips

Introduction

Knowledge technologies embody formal models of how the world works. If well designed, these models can relieve people of mundane activities and free them up to concentrate on what they do best. At their best, knowledge technologies can detect patterns in information which are too complex for humans to detect, or which they do not have time to detect, and can deliver this information to the right people, at the right time, in the right form for interpretation. This unit looks at the cor

3.1 Making consistent models

It would be preferable to have a consistent way of representing the different models that one might want to construct. The notion of a modelling language allows the developer to make useful connections between different models. For the most part, models are represented diagrammatically. There are two aspects of a diagram-based modelling language that you should be aware of:

  • a set of rules that defines what symbols can be used on a particular type of di

Learning outcomes

By the end of this unit you will be able to:

  • outline the ways in which the relations between work and welfare are made and remade in different places and at different times;

  • explain how these changing relations contribute to constituting welfare subjects;

  • describe how welfare provision that is connected to work affects the lives of different welfare subjects in different and unequal ways;

  • assess the relative influences and effects of

2.3.4 Stereoisomerism

A final type of isomeric variation occurs as a result of the three-dimensional structure of some polymers. It is possible because a four-valent atom like carbon can exist in two different forms when the subsidiary groups or atoms attached to the carbon are all different. The carbon atom is then known as an asymmetric carbon atom. A very simple example of the phenomenon is the structure of a small molecule, lactic acid. As Figure 20 shows, it can exist in two forms which are mirr

The Nagual Experiment
This paper refers to an experiment about the use of artificial life structures in order to simulate/evocate natural or artificial patterns. These patterns are the effect of the self-organisation of a population of individuals during their process of development and growth. Although the local dynamics and interactions have a chaotic (partially random) behaviour, the global dynamics of the population produces interesting and well structured patterns.
