Investigation of moral decision making attitudes of infrastructure athletes
The aim of this study is to reveal the status of sport ethics in infrastructures by applying moral decision-making scale to the athletes at the age of 10-16 in infrastructure sports. And also, is to help how to reach more well-behaved, respectable, ethical, gentleman and fair play structure by putting forward attitudes of which athletes of infrastructure who effected by sport ethics. As a data collection tool, Lee, Whitehead and Ntoumanis (2007) "Athletes Moral Decision-Making in Youth Sport Questionnaire (AMDYSQ)" was used which was developed to measure moral decision-making attitudes of athletes. The adaptation of the scale to the Turkish was done by Gurpinar (2014). The original scale is a 5-point Likert-type scale with 9 items and 3 sub-dimensions and scoring between I Absolutely Disagree (1) and I Absolutely Agree (5). The universe of the research consists of infrastructure athletes of limited 10-15 age group of Duzce Belediye Spor, Duzce 1907, Vakifbank and Ekol Sports clubs in Duzce and Istanbul and the sample is composed of 141 athletes voluntarily participating in the research from this universe. The relationship between attitudes of moral decision making of infrastructure athletes and socio-demographic characteristics such as age, gender, income level, undergraduate year, class, branch and clubs was analyzed by Kruskal-Wallis test in the research. The analysis of the obtained data is given in tabular form in the findings. As a result, there are significant differences between the moral decision-making attitudes of the infrastructure athletes and their demographic variables.

Stress level and self relation in university students and coaches
In this study, the relationship between the stress level and self-concept of the university students and coaches was investigated.To 310 students and 90 coaches, stress level scale and self-design inventory were applied. The comparisons were made by student t test.There was a statistical difference between stress level and self-design scores according to age level of students and coaches (p<0,001), there was no significant difference according to height and body weight (p<0,001). As the age level increases, the stress score decreases. There was no significant differences in the self-concept score while the male had higher stress score than the female (p<0,001). It was found statistically significant that the coaches had higher stress scores than students (p<0,001).Coaches were found to have a more stressful and negative self-concept than students. Stress level of coaches should be lowered to improve their positive self-esteem.

Mixture traces probabilistic analysis in the comparison of several hypotheses
The objective of this work is to discuss various approaches in the analysis of DNA mixture profiles, starting with a mixture trace with only two contributors and extending the analysis to a larger number of contributors. Both the algebraic treatment and the use of OOBN are considered concluding with the inevitability of using the latter in more complex situations.
