Investigation of constant attention skills of hearing impaired individuals who do and don’t do sports in terms of some variables
The purpose of this research; is the study of constant attention skills in hearing impaired individuals who do and do not play sports in terms of some variables. A total of 101 hearing-impaired people living in Trabzon, 43 individuals aged 12-17 who regularly sport and 58 individuals who do not play sports participated in the research. The personal information form developed by the researcher in the study and the Burdon Attention Test were used to determine the attentiveness of the participants. Kruskal Wallis H test and Mann Whitney U tests were used in the statistical analysis of the data obtained in the study. Statistically significant level of significance was determined as p <0,05.
As a result of the research, it was found that the attentional level of hearing impaired individuals who did not exercise showed a statistically significant difference according to age, hearing aid use status (p <0.05); it was determined that the attentional levels of hearing impaired individuals who did not exercise did not differ significantly according to gender and the reasons of hearing impairment (p> 0.05).
It was determined that the level of attention was significantly different according to the sex in the hearing impaired individuals who played sports (p <0.05); (p> 0.05), the level of attentiveness of the hearing impaired individuals who did sports did not show any significant difference according to age, reasons for hearing impairment, and hearing aids usage.
As a result, it can be said that the hearing impaired individuals who sports are more attentive than hearing impaired people who do not exercise.

Ideas for advancing mathematically precocious youth: a review of the literature
Mathematically Precocious Youth (MPY) are taught in a variety of ways in American educational system. This literature review paper explored which educational options may be best for MPY and the nation and reviewed many of the educational options available for MPY. The goal was to find which educational options provided MPY the best chance to be successful in school and beyond. The paper found many MPY were not being taught at the correct level and were not provided enough challenging material. MPY found great educational success as well as career success from acceleration programs, computer-based and distant learning courses, and mathematical competitions. The paper concluded acceleration set at the right level and pace was the best option to help MPY find educational success.

Breast milk, omega-3, omega-6 fatty acids and pediatric nursing approach in hospital administration
The relevant literature is searched this article was aimed to give information about breast milk, Omega-3, Omega-6 Fatty Acids and Pediatric Nursing Approach in this article. For this reason, a literature search was made and an article of review type was written. The main focuses are the fatty acids, the effects of fatty acids on infant development, breast milk and omega fatty acids, the effect of consuming fish on breast milk fatty acids and the pediatric nursing approach in hospital management. As a result, increasing the omega-3, omega-6 fatty acid content in the mother's milk will enable these essential fatty acids to pass through to the baby and contribute to the growth and development of the baby. Therefore, it is important to give mothers information about consumption of omega-3, omega-6 fatty acids in the nursing approach.

Effects of smartphones on our children
Younger generations are more likely to use their smartphones to communicate and keep up with the latest trends than any other method today. Our youth are growing up with technology evolving at a fast pace. The increase in numbers of smart phone users in children and adolescents raises concerns for many regarding the possible adverse health effects of this use. Smartphones have become an essential way for the children and adolescents to communicate, go online and access and share information. According to Ericsson Mobility Report (2018), there are 5.5 billion mobile broadband subscriptions globally. There is growing concern that increased phone use may be becoming an addictive-like behavior and have a negative impact on our future generation. This paper discusses the associated risks of cancer, increased motor vehicle accidents, smartphone addiction, mental health, sleep disorders and cyber bullying. Some countries around the world have already begun legislation that bans the use of smartphones in schools, prohibit sales and advertisements that target young age groups and expanding warnings on phones/packages. Educational campaigns are also being adopted to further protect this population. This paper will review the studies completed on smart phone use and some of the negative effects on our youth.
