Page no 172-181
At the present stage, competitive volleyball is becoming increasingly fierce, and the training means and methods of various national volleyball teams tend to be diversified. In order to stand out in the world volleyball federation, athletes are particularly important in talent selection, and athlete selection is the first link of a project in sports training. This paper takes the standard of talent selection of volleyball players as the research object, and tries to find out the law of talent selection of volleyball players. This paper summarizes the definition of talent selection of volleyball players, the general situation of talent selection of volleyball players at home and abroad, the selection standards of volleyball players and the overall situation. Volleyball is the first big ball championship won by China in the Olympic Games. We need to solve many conflicts in the cultivation of sports reserve talents, which is obviously the key to the sustainable development of sports in our country . We should strengthen the research on the sustainable development of volleyball talents, gradually strengthen the quality and quantity of talents, and establish and improve the sustainable volleyball reserve talent development project. Scientific material selection refers to scientific theories and methods, using means, some data and human body evaluation indicators to predict future competitiveness. In the competitive field, scientific material selection can be designed into many methods, which are very extensive. Such as genetics, morphology, physiology, psychology, sports training and other disciplines, with the current scientific development, each province and city also pay great attention to athletes from childhood . And more reasonable use of scientific material selection. When selecting excellent athletes, the competitive ability of a volleyball player mainly depends on the development level of the player's shape, function, quality, skill, psychology and intelligence. The above factors are combined in quantitative and qualitative forms to form a certain level and type of player model. Therefore, in the selection of talents, we should pay attention to the selection of those with good physical fitness and good intelligence, but the talents with the best of both worlds are not easy to be selected. When there is a contradiction between the two, we should focus on selecting members with good intelligence . Because poor physical fitness can also be improved through training, while players with poor intelligence are generally more difficult to change through training.

Twenty (n=20) male volunteered students age ranged between 21 to 29 years were taken from colleges and university of Kalyani, West Bengal, India. As the subjects were randomly divided into two groups and named as control Group and Experimental group. At first, Linearity, Homoscadasticity, and Normality of data were checked by Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, Breusch-Pagan-Godfrey and Kolmogorov-Smirnov test respectively in SPSS 23 software. In present study the mean, standard deviation (SD), paired sample‘t’ test were used for observing the effect of meditation programme.

Background: Patients suffering from Lateral Epicondylitis experience restriction in their daily activities due to the pain and dysfunction. Though the condition does not lead to disability, it limits functionality. The condition can be treated effectively in a primary health care environment. Objective: The objective of the study was to find out the functional outcome of lateral epicondylitis patients after 6 weeks of physiotherapy interventions. Methodology: A quantitative quasi-experimental study design was chosen for this study. A total of 18 participants were selected by hospital based convenient sampling technique and by the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Patients received treatment sessions for 18 sessions within the study period. The assessment was done again on a post-test on the same group using the same scales and the changes between pre and post-test of the same groups were compared. Pain and dysfunction were measured by Numerical Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) and Patient Rated Tennis Elbow Evaluation (PRTEE). Result: The result shows significant reduction of pain between baseline assessment and posttest. Overall pain in affected arm shows (p=0.001), specific activities (p=0.000) and usual activities (p=0.000). Distribution of pain during pretest found 6 (30%), specific activities 4 (20%) and in usual activities 3(17%) which was comparatively reduced after 6 months physiotherapy treatment found in posttest distribution was in affected arm 1 (2%), specific and usual activities was same in each 2 (9%) which proved that the physiotherapy treatment was more effective for reduction of pain of the Lateral Epicondylities. Conclusion: After 6 weeks of physiotherapy interventions, patient showed better outcome of the treatment and better recovery from Lateral Epicondylitis. So, the treatment program should be started as early as possible.

Background music played in the class is an educational intervention that has been proven to have a positive impact on student behavior management. By the way, several studies have highlighted the effectiveness of music when it is listened by students with special needs. To examine the effects of Mozart background music on the engagement behavior of 13 students with mild intellectual disability enrolled in a two self-contained gross motor activity classes an ABAB with drawl design was used to demonstrate a functional relationship between music background and student’s engagement behavior. Visual analysis of a repeated-measures graph and statistical analysis for the two classes suggested that there is no significant effect of Mozart music background on the student’s engagement during gross motor activities setting. There is not a significant difference between the first implementation of intervention B1 and baseline conditions A1 (p>0.001). Likewise, there is not a significant difference between the second implementation of music background B2 and second baseline conditions A2 (p>0.001). Results showed that Mozart music background did not influence student’s engagement behavior.
