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.
