Investigation of nutritional knowledge levels of faculty of sports science students
This research aims to investigate the nutritional knowledge levels of students studying in the sports science faculty of the university. To ensure healthy growth and development of people, balanced nutrition is very important as well as adequate nutrition. The nutrients and energy needed by the body are affected by various variables such as age and gender. Also, having enough and quality of nutrients in the body has an important effect in terms of health. Athletes, on the other hand, need to pay more attention to nutrition beside health. It is possible that the physical performance is at a sufficient level and that this performance can continue, by paying attention to the nutrition of the athlete. Adequate nutritional knowledge of instructors and trainers who train athletes and athletes provides a positive effect on the performance of the athlete he educates. In the study, a questionnaire consisting of two parts was applied to collect data to apply to sports science students. Determining “the Demographic Features of the Participants” in the first part of the questionnaire (17 questions); and in the second part, the questions to determine “Sports Nutrition and Nutritional knowledge Levels” (18 questions) are included. Validity and reliability studies of the applied questionnaire were carried out. A questionnaire measuring nutritional knowledge levels was applied to the sample individuals who participated in the study before and after nutrition education by the expert in the field of nutrition. There is a significant difference between the nutritional knowledge levels of individuals after receiving nutritional education and the nutritional knowledge levels before receiving nutritional education. Accordingly, nutrition education given to individuals has increased their nutritional knowledge level.

Analyzing the shot preferences in single-men’ and single-women’s matches of badminton championships and the effects on match scores
The present study aims to examine each rally played by single-man and single-woman players in Olympic, European, and World championships at finals and semi-finals from the aspect of shot preferences, as well as examining the effects of those shot preferences on the match scores. The study group consists of 20 athletes that played in final and semi-final singles matches. In the present study, the match videos uploaded to Kinovea program were played by reducing to the 3-30% of the normal play speed, and the shots preferred by the athletes were accurately recorded. In order to evaluate the effects of shooting technics on the match score, the independent sample t-Test was employed (Mann-Whitney Test) (p<0.05). It was determined that the shots mostly preferred by the male athletes were lop and net drop, whereas the least preferred type was found to be the drive. Among the female athletes, the most preferred shooting technics were clear and lop, whereas the least preferred shot was drive. Given the results related with the effects of shots preferred in scores won on the match scores, it was determined in independent t-Test results that there were statistically significant positive differences between match score and drop (r=0.03) and lop (r=0.02) among the shots received and lop (r=0.045) from the defense among the shots, from which the score was made (p<0.05). In conclusion, it was determined that, when compared to the male athletes, the female athletes kept the ball in the match longer. It can be said that the badminton athletes play a defense-oriented match and thus they win the matches by pressing the opponents into failure.

Problem based learning concepts of biology to improve outcomes and attitudes caring the environment
Education is the main thing to prepare the next generation who are ready to compete in the 21st century. Now, improving the quality of education is needed to face competition in the era of globalization. The learning device is a form of preparation made by the teacher before carrying out the learning process. Teaching preparation is one measure of a teacher's success. Failure in planning is tantamount to planning failure. This implies how important it is to prepare learning through the development of learning tools. The lesson plan is a plan that describes the procedures and organization of learning to achieve a basic competency that has been defined in content standards and described in the syllabus. Learning outcomes can be interpreted as the maximum results that have been achieved by students after experiencing the teaching and learning process in learning certain subject matter. Learning outcomes are not absolutely in the form of values, but can be in the form of changes or improvements in attitudes, habits, knowledge, persistence, fortitude, reasoning, discipline, skills and so on that lead to positive change. Therefore, the curriculum is designed to be able to develop the potential of students into abilities that are increasing in attitudes, knowledge and skills.

Description of gender discrimination and gender bias in recreational diving tourism sector in Turkey
Gender discrimination and some stereotyped prejudices cause women to move away from some professions or discrimination against women who are engaged in this profession. This situation is more evident especially in male-dominated business areas. In this study, it is aimed to describe the gender discrimination and gender-based bias to which women are exposed in the scuba diving tourism sector.
Within the scope of the research, observation, one-to-one interview and document analysis methods were used to collect qualitative data. In Kas district of Antalya, which is one of the most important centers of diving tourism in Turkey, face-to-face interviews with trainers, scuba diving leaders and scuba diving center owners working in the scuba diving tourism sector were carried our and their experiences and opinions were analyzed. The study pool was formed by the maximum diversity sampling method.
According to the results, it is seen that the most important problems of women are social gender-based bias rather than biological gender-based factors such as menstruation period, pregnancy, birth and postpartum. It is concluded that the physical coercion of active work in scuba diving tourism and the ability to intervene correctly in case of a possible accident is not related to gender. Moreover, employers tend to discriminate at the recruitment stage; In the course of the process, we can say that women can destroy prejudices as one of the results of this study.

The effectiveness of blended learning method by using environmental pollution materials
In this digital era, humans can learn anytime and anywhere. In this case, authentic individual-based learning is needed. Learning that is popular today in Indonesia is traditional learning, which is class-based learning. In classical learning, students must be in the same time and space as their classmates and teachers to carry out learning activities. Therefore, it is necessary to find alternatives for classical learning that can overcome these problems without eliminating feelings of social ties between students and classmates and between students and teachers. At the same time teachers are challenged to combine traditional learning and advances in information technology to keep up with the diverse learning styles of students. Blended learning is a combination of face-to-face learning in class with online technology. The use of Blended learning can help to see learning outcomes and critical thinking. Learning outcomes can be in the form of independent knowledge in learning that is not dependent on others, is free and can do it alone. This is very important for students because knowledge can grow naturally within the students themselves.

Climate change impacts gender roles, a state of the art
In conditions of climate change, women will bear a double burden. Changes in extreme weather have resulted in many decreases in economic income, so that women have become involved in helping to shoulder men's burdens. As a result, many women then have to do additional work to support the family economy, so that women are responsible for taking care of domestic work and at the same time also working to help the family economy. In addition to the double burden of helping the family economy, the time spent working also becomes longer. Because women work to help their husbands at night. Women also do not have sufficient capacity to face climate change, for example the lack of women's access to socio-economic and political aspects which makes women more vulnerable when exposed to the impacts of climate change. The difference in social roles between men and women also affects the difference in the level of vulnerability between the two. In a context where there are already unequal gender relations, climate change will create more vulnerability to marginalized gender groups, namely women. Therefore, a gender responsive climate change policy model and strategy is needed, namely a policy that positions women equally in the context of climate change resilience. This is because the higher the level of gender awareness a city has, the higher the quality of climate change policies in a city. Conversely, failure to include a gender perspective in climate change resilience policies will further add to the burden and risk of climate change for more vulnerable groups.

Information security challenges in cloud computing
Recent evidence and studies point to the global trend towards work, education, and trade, especially after the Coronavirus epidemic, known as (COVID-19), recently invaded the world at large. When people, governments, and companies became panicked and preoccupied with limiting and controlling the spread of the epidemic by staying at home, everyone turned to work from home. This led to the prioritization of companies, organizations, universities, schools, and governments to qualify their facilities for that purpose. In order for the enterprises to cope with the wave of "remote" work, they were forced to create or update their own cloud computing. Cloud computing is an important and big topic in itself, but this study sheds light on information security in cloud computing. Where the most important factor for the success of any establishment is the continuity of information and the efficiency of its security so that its business lasts and maintains its customers and shareholders.
Henceforth, the need for this study arose to define the importance of information security in cloud computing and to introduce a simplified concept of cloud computing and to define its objectives, importance, characteristics and services in information security. This study also provides an analysis of more than fifteen previous studies closely related to the topic of information security in cloud computing, highlighting the most important conclusions after comparing the literature. This critical analysis consists of two parts. The first part is the theoretical part that explains cloud computing in detail, starting from its concept to its security policies and the procedures followed in the security of cloud computing. The second part is the critical part, which deals with analyzing and criticizing literature and previous studies in an analytical way that provides a deep understanding of all issues related to information security in the world of cloud computing.

Examining the relationship between organizational culture and altruism field research in publıc and private sports institutions (Mugla province case)
The aim of our study consists first the detection of the level of organisation culture and altruism at public and private institutions and then, determination of the relation between these two terms. The demographic characteristics of the staff and the differences and similarities between these two terms will be analysed with regards to public and private institutions. The success of a sport institution can be measured by means of the demand of the sports good, produced by this institution, at the market. At the institution, the harmony of the staff’s performance during the production of this sports good is important. The contribution of organisation culture and altruism for the formation of this harmony is major. So, it is necessary to detect the level of the organisation culture and altruism at the public and private institutions operating in Mugla province. Suggestions will be developed depending on the acquired data. 105 staff members attended the study voluntarily. At this study, the data for the investigation of the relation between organisation culture and altruism among the staff members at the public and private institution, was acquired by “Personal Information Form”, arranged by the researcher, “Altruism Scale” developed by Dogan and Sapmaz (2012) , then was measured and interpreted by a five point Likert-type scale. “Organization Culture Scale”, created by Ogbonna and Harris (2000) and developed by Karadeniz (2010) during the master degree study, will be utilized. A scale in the form of five point Likert-type scale, developed by Likert, was conducted. During the analysis process of the data, frequency, arithmetic average, standard deviation estimations were determined. Kolmogorov-Simirnov and Shapiro-Wilk test was used to detect if the data has a normal range or not. As the data didn’t have a normal range (P<0,05), Mann-Whitney-U and Kruskal Wallis test was utilized at 0,05 significance level for the binary and more group average differences. In order to determine the relation between altruism level and organization culture, Pearson correlation analysis was utilized at 0,05 significance level. Regression analysis at a 0,05 significance level was used to determine the effect of altruism level, as an independent variable, on organiztion culture. Divergence has been detected between the socio-demographic characteristics of the staff and the level of altruism and organization culture. There is a relation between the altruism level and organization culture of the staff. The altruism level of the staff has impact upon the organization culture level.

The role of social networks in supporting e-learning
Recent evidence and studies indicate that integrating social networking sites (SNS) features into an e-learning environment could also be highly accepted by students. The rationale for acceptance is that the benefits of SNS in improving the training experience. Recently, students have increased their interest and used social media to hide their educational needs. Thus, educational centers and institutions have attended integrate SNS into their educational processes. But despite this interest on the a part of science makers, as far because the researcher knows, private and public schools and lots of universities didn't concentrate to the present topic and didn't pay enough attention to satisfy the tutorial needs of their students. Therefore, the necessity for this study arose so as to define the importance of SNS within the e-learning environment and also to present the kinds of social networks related to distance learning on which many prestigious universities round the world depend. The survey approach are going to be followed by reviewing and analyzing foreign studies to understand the methods utilized in integrating social media in e-learning and describing the extent of the impact of integrated SNS with distance education on both students and teachers alike. The researcher concluded that a lot of social media tools and media play a crucial role in students’ receiving of remote education which the utilization of SNS and its integration in universities and schools raises the extent of students' educational attainment and facilitates the delivery of data to students by teachers. The researcher recommended conducting more research that has the newest social media technology integrated with e-learning.
