|1||The Gandhi-Ambedkar Caste Debate: Is it Just Black and White or Shades of Grey are Possible? Or Was Gandhiji Apologetic of the Caste System?Abstract – With the Gandhi- Ambedkar caste debate being a widely read and a thoroughly debated subject, there is realised there is an unnecessary dichotomising between the views of Gandhiji and Ambedkar. On the contrary, both were social reformers fighting the evils the society was embedded in. Howsoever, an in-depth reading into this field of scholarship readily and quite often potrays Gandhiji as being apologetic of the caste system. My aim is to see for myself and ther by to bring to notice whether Gandhiji was really up to such an agenda i.e. of defending and justifying the caste system. For this the first and foremost aspect would be through what lens are we looking into the matter. In my view, reading Gandhiji from his very own standpoint, or what Quentin Skinner would call reading a theorist within his context. This resolves the whole problem of reading any ambiguity or contradictions which is claimed to be in Gandhi.||Divya Jha|

Method: The method used in the research and study of cultural values as a source of local wisdom contained in the expressions (proverbs) of the Semurup Malay community is qualitative descriptive research method combined with quantitative method to construct the reality of cultural values as a source of local wisdom in the expressions of community proverbs.
Findings: The research result shows that there is a significant change, that people who understand the elements of local wisdom increase to 8.75% or 20 people, people of moderate ability 4 or 1%, and of low-ability descends to 1 person or 0.25%.
Improvements: The culture of Semurup Malay community of Kerinci is known for being friendly, polite, harmonious, open, and always prioritizing public above personal and group (tribal) interests. This philosophy now begins to fade by the changing of times. This also causes the decline of dignity and standing of the ninek mamak as the custom stakeholder in the eyes of community, and eventually the sacred values of the customs will disappear unless some efforts of preservation are done.

|8||Types and Determinants of Substances Use among Nation-Wide Professional Football League Players in NigeriaAbstract –Use of substances nowadays has gone beyond the primary aim of correcting, preventing and treating of ailments. Sport participants use substances to enhance their performances. The objective of this study is therefore to investigate and determine the substances use among Nation-Wide Professional Football League Players, Nigeria. A cross sectional study was carried out among eight clubs during their training sessions and three research instruments were used in the study. These instruments were administered on 270 respondents. Cronbach Alpha coefficient was used to determine the internal consistency of the three research instruments with reliability values of 0.61, 0.60 and 0.84 respectively. Two null hypotheses were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance with linear regression model. The results revealed that personal characteristics (β = 0.193, t = 3.228, p<0.05) and team influence (β = 0.284, t = 4.843, p<0.05) significantly determined the substances use among Nation-Wide Professional Football League players in, Nigeria. It is therefore recommended that sports organizations, coaches, sport psychologists and exercise scientists should be proactive in educating and discouraging the use of performance enhancing substances. Hence, soccer players should focus on performance skills rather than performance substances use. Also, football coaches should encourage wholesome and fair competition by emphasizing healthy nutrition, training practices and taking a strong stand against win at all costs philosophy.||Dr. Michael O.
