TL;DR: In this paper, Kastamonu-Cide bioclimatic comfort is done mapping of the coastline and thus aimed at building pad similar studies of a similar nature in the coastal areas.
Abstract: People are with overall nominal temperature, precipitation, humidity and where in certain ranges of environmental conditions such as wind they feel healthy and dynamic. In the appropriate range for the people of these values it is called the bioclimatic comfort. When bioclimatic comfort area is in the range of fair value would bother people in the area and want to get away from the area. Hence bioclimatic comfort areas used for the purpose of tourism is very important. In this study, Kastamonu-Cide bioclimatic comfort is done mapping of the coastline and thus aimed at building pad similar studies of a similar nature in the coastal areas. For this purpose, the region's climate data Cide is located; equivalent temperature according to the physiological index is bioclimatic comfort maps were prepared. To determine the structure of the field is bioclimatic comfort is collected climatic data from meteorological stations. The obtained data were evaluated by means of Rayman 1.2 and geographic information system (GIS) is used to produce thermal perception map with the help of software. According to the psychological equivalent temperatures As a result, the most appropriate time and area for outdoor recreation activities have been identified by thermal perception maps.

TL;DR: The antioxidant property of quercetin has been highlighted in this review and has played pivotal role in treatment of diabetes, cancers and some cardiovascular diseases.
Abstract: Flavones and flavonoids are known to have potent antioxidant activity due to intracellular free radical scavenging capacities. Flavonoids are found ubiquitously in plants as a member of polyphenolic compounds which share diverse chemical structure and properties. Quercetin is among the most efficient antioxidants of the flavonoids. The antioxidant property of quercetin has been highlighted in this review. These compounds have pivotal role in treatment of diabetes, cancers and some cardiovascular diseases.

TL;DR: In this article, the changes that may be caused by global climate change in some climate parameters and climate types in Mersin, which is one of the important cities of our country, are investigated.
Abstract: Global climate change is seen as a process that will directly or indirectly affect living things and ecosystems all over the world. In this process, determining the changes in climate parameters and climate types in advance is of great importance in terms of the measures that can be taken and the preparation for the process. In this study, it is aimed to determine the changes that may be caused by global climate change in some climate parameters and climate types in Mersin, which is one of the important cities of our country. Within the scope of the study, the current status of temperature, precipitation and climate types (according to De Martone and Emberger climate classification) and RCP 4.5 and RCP 8.5. It is aimed to compare the possible situations in 2050 and 2070 in the light of scenarios. The results of the study show that temperature, precipitation and climate types will change significantly throughout Mersin province. Today, the temperature varying between -0.4°C and 19°C will change between 4.9°C and 24°C throughout the province in 2070 according to the RCP 8.5 scenario, that is, there will be an increase of around 5°C in the temperature change interval, the precipitation regime will change, Climate types are predicted to shift towards arid climates. This situation shows that climate factors, one of the most important planning criteria, will change significantly in landscape planning studies. Since landscape planning studies continue their effects for many years, it is recommended to take this into consideration in order to make a healthy planning. The results of this study should be used in the planning studies for Mersin province.

TL;DR: It was determined that Salvia multicaulis Vahl plant can be used as a natural antioxidant and antimicrobial resource and it is recommended to avoid excessive consumption of the plant due to high OSI.
Abstract: The present study aimed to determine antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of Salvia multicaulis Vahl plant collected in Gaziantep province, Turkey. Total antioxidant status (TAS), total oxidant status (TOS) and oxidative stress index (OSI) were determined using Rel Assay kits. Antimicrobial activity was determined with modified agar dilution method. The findings demonstrated that S. multicaulis had high antioxidant activity. However, it is recommended to avoid excessive consumption of the plant due to high OSI. It was also determined that plant extracts possessed antimicrobial potential. As a result, it was determined that the plant can be used as a natural antioxidant and antimicrobial resource.

TL;DR: The antioxidant, antidiabetic, hepatoprotective, haematological, antiplasmodial, antimicrobial, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, pharmacological and medicinal value of Vernonia amygdalina is no longer in doubt and is comprehensively documented in this study.
Abstract: In recent years, studies have been focus not only on the nutritional properties of Vernonia amygdalina, but its pharmacological, medicinal and antioxidant values. The antioxidant, antidiabetic, hepatoprotective, haematological, antiplasmodial, antimicrobial, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, pharmacological and medicinal value of Vernonia amygdalina is no longer in doubt and is comprehensively documented in this study. Some studies attribute its medicinal properties to its phytochemical compounds while other studies link its health benefits to its bioactive components. It is expected that this review will be useful to researchers, agriculturists and herbal medical practitioners and improve interest in the study and utilization of this plant in other part of the globe where it is not presently cultivated or utilize. Relevant information was obtained from online resources such as Google Search, Google Scholar, PubMed and Medline. Only literature highlighting the nutritional, medicinal, pharmacological, and antioxidant activities of the plant were selected for this review.
