Abstract: The purpose of the current study is to evaluate the effect of edible fruit and vegetable coatings, the echinacea and the hawthorn tea solutions, solely or in combination of increasing the shelf-life of chicken meat by the inhibition of the microbial flora at the refrigeration temperature (+4˚C), without disrupting certain chemical and physical properties. Eight different combinations of treatment groups were formed as follows: (E): echinacea tea, (E+M): echinacea tea-hawthorn tea combination, (E+S): Semperfresh®-echinacea tea combination, (E+M+S): Semperfresh® -echinacea tea-hawthorn tea combination, (M): hawthorn tea, (M+S): Semperfresh®-hawthorn tea combination; (S): the edible coating (Semperfresh®), including the control. The total mesophilic aerobic bacteria(TMAB), yeast-mold, Salmonella spp., E. coli and Staphylococcus species were determined. The pH, firmness, weight and total sugar content were analyzed. It was found that the sole hawthorn tea and triple combination of Echinacea tea-hawthorn tea-edible coating SemperfreshTM(E+H+S) showed significant inhibitory effects on the mesophilic aerobic bacteria (MAB), Staphylococci, Salmonella and Escherichia coli. Except for the Echinacea treatment group, the overall evaluation of taste panel showed a likeness of the remaining applications(p≤0.05). On the other hand, no significant effect was observed (p>0.05) on the pH, the firmness, the total sugar content and the weight of chicken meat among the groups. Different combinations, especially the triple combination was found to be successful on chicken thighs, due to the microbiological, chemical and physical findings. It can be inferred from the study that echinacea, hawthorn, and SemperfreshTM show a synergetic effect

Abstract: Sağlıklı hücreler genom bütünlüğünü, hücre döngüsündeki ilerleyişi erteleyen/durduran ve DNA tamirini devreye sokan korunmuş bir DNA hasarı yanıtı yolağını aktive ederek sürdürürler. Bu sinyal yolağının düzgün olarak çalışmasını engelleyen moleküler bozukluklar genellikle kansere yatkınlık kazandırırlar. DNA hasarı yanıtı (DDR), hücreleri genomik kararsızlıktan korur ve kanser gelişimini önler. DNA hasarının moduna ve seviyesine bağlı olarak, DDR sinyal ağı hücre döngüsünün geçici durdurulmasını (kontrol noktası), kalıcı büyümenin durdurulmasını (yaşlanma, senesens) veya programlanmış hücre ölümünü (apoptozis) teşvik eder. DDR'ye katılan proteinleri kodlayan genler tipik olarak tümör baskılayıcılardır ve yaygın olarak kanserde mutasyona uğrarlar. DDR yolağı temel olarak proteinlerin fosforilasyon ve defosforilasyonlarını kapsayan bir mekanizma ile düzenlenir. Yabanıl tip p53 ile indüklenen fosfataz veya (Wild-type p53-inducible phosphatase (Wip1)), veya protein fosfataz tip 2C delta (protein phosphatase type 2C delta (PPM1D)) olarak da bilinen Wip1, DDR’ ın merkezinde yer alan ve önemli tümör baskılayıcıları hedef alan bir onko-proteindir. Bu derleme de, DDR’nin ince ayarında Wip1 aktivitesinin rolü ve bir onkogen olarak apoptozis ve senesens gibi hücresel stres yanıtları üzerine etkileri tartışılmıştır.

Abstract: The research was conducted with the aim of determining the levels of reading motivation of students who are studying in the department of teaching in terms of various variables and the factors that cause having low and high reading motivation. The research is based on the determination of the internal and external motivation sources that motivate or disincline students in reading who are studying in the department of teaching and the development of solutions accordingly. The research was conducted with mixed method. Within the mixed method, the explanatory sequential design was used. The first study group of the research consists of 238 first grade students who are studying in the different departments of the Faculty of Education in a state university in the academic year of 2018-2019. The second study group of the research consists of 18 students who wanted to participate in the second phase of the research and has low and high reading motivation. The data collection tools of the study include the Adult Reading Motivation Scale (ARMS) which was developed by Schutte and Malouff (2007) and interview form which consists of open-ended questions. In the analysis of the quantitative data, within the IBM SPSS 24.0 statistical program, descriptive researches, independent samples t-test since the data demonstrate normal distribution and one-way ANOVA test were used. In the analysis of qualitative data, MAXQDA Analytics Pro 12 qualitative analysis program was used for coding the data, determining the themes, organizing the themes and defining and interpreting the findings. The obtained results are as follows: Reading motivation of female students are higher than male students. Students who have a bookcase in their home have a higher motivation than those who don't have. The department students study does not create a difference in reading motivation. Students who have high reading motivation define themselves as conscious readers and individuals who find pleasure in reading. Personal pleasure and the desire to improve are the leading factors that incline individuals to read. It is observed that taking someone as a model and being influenced by a peer are important for reading motivation. The leading reasons that decrease reading motivation are school, activities with friends and getting bored from reading. Students who have high reading motivation are considered to be individuals who acquired reading habit and are good readers since they read with the purposes of self-development, acquiring knowledge, homework and pleasure as well as curiosity. While the factors which excite students the most in reading are curiosity, interest and gripping narration, the elements that disturb the students are long descriptions and unobtrusive subjects.

Abstract: This research was conducted in the fourth grade of a private primary school in the province of Gaziantep in the 2018-2019 academic year to provide students with creative thinking skills. This study was carried out as a qualitative case study. 23 students participated in the program. With a two-month study, students were given 23 journal writing topics to develop their creative thinking skills. The students wrote their journals in the school for 5-10 minutes at the beginning of the lessons. At the end of the program students and teachers were asked to write their opinions in the interview form. The data were analyzed by NVIVO 12 for Mac. According to the findings, creative thinking and writing activities have a positive effect on students' development of creative thinking skills. Majority of the students think the program was entertaining while it is seen that female students are more willing than male students.

Abstract: In the study, a mixed research method was used combining quantitative and qualitative data. The study group consisted of 302 school directors and deputy directors working in different schools within Hatay Province of Turkey. A data collection tool, developed according to the official standards of state schools, was used to collect quantitative and qualitative data together. In the quantitative dimention, we concluded that school administrators think that the music and fine arts classrooms, worship sections, sport fields, science laboratories, computer and technology laboratories were highly insufficient. The qualitative results also supported these findings. The participants stated that they wanted to expand the sport areas by adding indoor sports hall, football, basketball, volleyball and swimming pools. The participants also expressed that the physical deficiencies hinder the lessons being efficient, especially the lack of school gym, workshop and laboratory; moreover they stated that this situation turns the courses into more theoretical base than the practice, which are delimited between four walls of the classrooms. However, we have also observed some inconsistent findings between quantitative and qualitative dimensions of the study, as the results related to classrooms, heating and insulation were observed to be inconsistent when the qualitative and quantitative dimensions were compared.

Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate whether there is a relationship between empathy tendency skills and problem solving skills of 10 year old Turkish primary school students. At the same time, it is aimed to find out whether these students 'empathy level and problem solving ability differ according to the student's gender, number of siblings, socioeconomic level, parental age and parents' educational status. The study sample constitutes 418 fourth grade students from three primary schools in the city of Izmir, Turkey. In the study, the KA-SI Empathy Tendency Scale-Child Form developed by Kaya and Siyez (2010) and Problem Solving Inventory is developed by Serin, Bulut-Serin, Saygılı (2010). Independent Groups t Test, One Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), Kruksal Wallis H Test; Tukey and Mann Whitney U Test in determining which groups differ; Pearson Product Moment Correlation Analysis was applied to determine the relationship between groups. The findings of the study showed that there is a positive directional medium-strong relationship between the empathy score of the students and the confidence in problem solving skills and problem solving scores. There is a very weak positive relationship between empathy and avoidance score. It is thought that the results obtained in the research can contribute to the programs that will be prepared in order to develop empathy and problem solving skills in children.

Abstract: The current study investigated the quality of feedback produced via anonymous online peer feedback activity in a Thai EFL writing classroom. It also explored how the students perceived the anonymous online peer feedback activity. Peer feedback tasks, questionnaires, and an interview were used to collect the information. The results from the peer feedback tasks showed that the quality of peer feedback significantly improved. The results from the questionnaires showed that the students agreed that the online peer feedback activity helped them to improve their writing although there were some problems that should be improved. The follow-up interview revealed that the anonymity of the writers or the feedback givers would not affect how most students would react to the writings or feedbacks. It could be noted from the study that sufficient training must be provided before implementing the anonymous online peer feedback activity. The findings provide new evidence for scholars and instructors who are interested in implementing an anonymous online peer feedback in a Thai classroom.
