Abstract: As an application of convexity in spaces of arcs, three results of a somewhat different nature have been obtained. The first one gives some simple conditions under which an arc of a semilattice is mapped back into itself by an order-preserving function. The second result states that certain Whitney levels are absolute retracts. Finally, Kelley continua are characterized by what we call approximating coselections.
