Abstract: Dispute resolution in society can be madepeacefully out of court or through an authorized court, depending on the willingness of the parties concerned. Consequently, the parties to the dispute must follow the procedures applicable to each dispute resolution system. With the issuance of Supreme Court Regulation No. 1 of 2016 on mediation procedures in court has required all parties litigating through the judiciary to pursue mediation procedures, which is one ofout the court methods known for resolving a dispute. Thus, the mediation has been integrated into the dispute resolution process through the courts, including the Sharia Court. The problem is how the implementation of mediation integration in the examination process at the Aceh Sharia Court was.

Title : The chronicle of caste and the medical profession in India

Abstract: Caste has always been an important feature of Indian society. Historically it has determined the occupational pattern and allotted social positions to individuals differentially. The divisive system of caste was cleverly used by the colonizers to rule the vast Indian land. The modern development that took place during colonial period should have reoriented the production relations as in the west. In India it could not escape the caste connections and the caste organization maintain the prevailing production relations in the society. The new modern professions accepted by the changing Indian society has caste attributes to act as a social closure for downtrodden castes. Medical profession being highly rewarding remained in the hands of social elite in these developments.

Abstract: Aim of the present study is to assess the effect of six weeks yoga and pranayama effect on peak flow meter (PFR), heart rate (HR), systolic blood pressure (SBP), and diastolic blood pressure (DBP). Total 70 female subjects have been selected, aged 25-40 Years, from Raipur. All the female subjects were living sedentary life style. The Bhastirka Pranayama and Nadisodhan Pranayama was given for 6 weeks, 5 days in a week for 20 to 25 minutes. PFR (litter/min) was measured with the help of peak flow meter, HR (beats/min), SBP (mmHg), and DBP (mmHg) were measured with the help of digital sphygmomanometer. Descriptive and inferential (ANOVA) analyses were employed to draw meaningful result and conclusion. Results of the present revealed significant (p<0.05) improvement in PFR and HR. the systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure did not show significant changes. More study on large sample is required to draw more robust conclusion.
