Investigation of the effect of positive perception and mental toughness levels on motivation of success in elite mountain running athletes
Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of 18 year old and over elite mountain running athletes’ positive perception and mental toughness levels on success motivation participated in Turkey mountain running championship. The research group consists of a total of 166 athletes. In the study; Mental Touhness Scale (ZRS) adapted to Turkish by Erdogan (2016) and developed by Madrigal, Hamill and Gill (2013) and Positive Perception Scale (PSS) developed by Icekson and Pines (2013), adapted to Turkish by Akın and Kaya (2015) and Sports Specific Success Motivation Scale developed by Willis (1982) and adapted to Turkish by Tiryaki and Godelek (1997) were used. Data were edited in Microssoft Excel 2003 program and analyzed using Spss 20.0 for windows package program. Descriptive analysis methods were used to determine the distribution of personal information of the athletes involved; cross-table analysis and percentage table analysis were used. For the scales applied in the study; In order to test whether the subscales of the two scales show normal distribution, a normality test of 0.05 significance level was applied. In order to make comparisons between the sub-dimensions of both scales according to whether the data were distributed normally or not, for parametric (anova / independent sample t-test) or for nonparametric (Kruskal Wallis / Mann Whitney-U) statistic was used. Multiple regression analysis with 0.01 significance level was performed to determine the effect levels of independent variables on positive perception and sport-specific success motivation. The correlation between mental toughness and positive perception was determined by correlation analysis at 0.01 significance level. According to the results of the study, it was seen that the mental endurance levels and positive perception levels of the athletes had a positive effect on the success motivation levels and the importance of positive perception and mental resilience factors in improving the performance of the athletes were revealed.

Investigation of the relationship between physical activity levels and academic achievements of high school students in different fields
Abstract

The aim of this research is to design the relationship between the levels of physical activity and academic achievement of the high school target studying different things. A total of 400 students from four different high schools located in the center of Muğla are focused on the study. The International Physical Activity Questionnaire, as a measure of academic achievement, has average scores, not general. In the SPSS data analysis program, standard deviation, mean and variance analyzes, one way Anova, Mann Whitney U test and correlation analysis were used. At the end of the study, there is a higher level of physical activity in men compared to the level of women, since the high school approach has no physical activity level. In addition, the analysis of the negative direction relationship between the characteristics of licensed athletes, the level of physical activity and academic achievement (p< 0.05). When the academic achievements of high schools were examined according to their types, they had the highest level of physical activity in the science high school and the highest level of physical activity in the Anatolian high school (p <0.05). There was a significant difference in demographic variables, functionality, physical activity level and father education status variable, targeting (p <0.05). On the other hand, while a positive relationship was established between treatment physical activity levels and academic achievements, it was concluded that there was a significant relationship. As a result, there is a clear determinant of the status of the fathers' status and the effectiveness of the variables for the research-oriented fathers, while other demographic variables do not affect the activities of high school settings in different activities and the level of physical activity is said to be a crucial determinant of academic achievement.

Implementation of information on palm oil plantation development in Central Kalimantan
Abstract

The implementation of the principle of openness to sustainable palm oil plantation development should be carried out as mandated by laws and regulations through certain mechanisms by the national and regional governments. However, it needs to be studied that there is no information available about the existing sustainable palm oil plantation operations in Central Kalimantan Province. This can become an obstacle in terms of providing information so that there is a need for evaluation, especially regarding the implementation of the Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil Certification System (ISPO) certification by plantation companies. This study is expected to provide benefits to all stakeholders related to palm oil plantation development, especially in Central Kalimantan Province. The stakeholders are the local government as the subject of implementing public information disclosure, the large palm oil companies as the object of implementing sustainable palm oil plantations, and the community as the object of development in a wider scope.

The effect of sportive activities on the death anxiety level of elderly individuals
Abstract

With the intensification of the aging population worldwide, it is necessary to encourage healthy and active aging. The main purpose of this study is to examine whether death anxiety differs according to the level of sportive activity in elderly individuals. 150 individuals aged 55-80 years from Antalya/Muratpasa district participated in this study. “International Physical Activity Questionnaire (Short Form)” was used to determine the level of physical activity of elderly individuals, and “Thorson-Powell Death Anxiety Scale” developed by Thorson and Powell (1992) and adapted to Turkish by Yildiz and Karaca (2001) was used to determine the death anxiety score. “International Physical Activity Survey Short Form” was used to determine the level of physical activity of elderly individuals, and “Thorson-Powell Death Anxiety Scale” developed by Thorson and Powell (1992) and adapted to Turkish by Yildiz and Karaca (2001) was used to determine the death anxiety score. One sample t-test was used at the 0.05 significance level to determine whether the sample group represents the main group. It is determined that the sample group represents the main group equally and homogeneously (p <0.05). Shapiro Wilk test was used at the 0.05 significance level to determine whether the data obtained in the study were normally distributed. The data showed a normal distribution (p <0.05). Percentage, frequency, t-test, and variance analysis (ANOVA) tests were used to analyze the data. As a result of the study, the elderly individuals who do regular activities were 56 people (37.3%), and those who did not do regular activities were 94 people (62.7%). The death anxiety rate was found to be 43.46 (mild death anxiety) in 37.3% of the regular activities and 64.34 (moderate death anxiety) in 62.7% of the people. Based on these findings, we can say that regular physical activity helps reduce the anxiety of death.
