|Curvature of $K$-contact Semi-Riemannian Manifolds|
In this paper we characterize $K$-contact semi-Riemannian manifolds and Sasakian semi-Riemannian manifolds in terms of curvature. Moreover, we show that any conformally flat $K$-contact semi-Riemannian manifold is Sasakian and of constant sectional curvature $\kappa=\varepsilon$, where $\varepsilon =\pm 1$ denotes the causal character of the Reeb vector field. Finally, we give some results about the curvature of a $K$-contact Lorentzian manifold.

|Semi-Slant Submanifolds of an Almost Paracontact Metric Manifold|
In this paper, we define and study the geometry of semi-slant submanifolds of an almost paracontact metric manifold. We give some characterizations for a submanifold to be semi-slant submanifold to be semi-slant product and obtain integrability conditions for the distributions involved in the definition of a semi-slant submanifold.

|Real Hypersurfaces in Complex Space Forms with Reeb Flow Symmetric Structure Jacobi Operator |
Real hypersurfaces in a complex space form whose structure Jacobi operator is symmetric along the Reeb flow are studied. Among them, homogeneous real hypersurfaces of type $(A)$ in a complex projective or hyperbolic space are characterized as those whose structure Jacobi operator commutes with the shape operator.

|On the Existence of a New Class of Contact Metric Manifolds |
A new class of 3-dimensional contact metric manifolds is found. Moreover it is proved that there are no such manifolds in dimensions greater than 3.
