In countries that do not have a developed LMS, the prevalent mean of communication with professors is via e-mail, in those where there is a LMS, there is not a fully accessibility of entire content and services for students with special needs.</p> <p>This research defined the need for creation of an accessible LMS or adjusted already existing LMS with accessibility solutions such as: a text-to-speech engine for blind students, a mode with sign language support for deaf students and a mode which supports dyslexic. </p> Aleksandra KAROVSKA RISTOVSKA Olivera RASHIKJ-CANEVSKA Alma TASEVSKA Ruta BRUZIENE Monika ORECHOVA Gonçalo PAIVA DIAS Elisabeth BRITO Henrik HAUBRO Copyright (c) 2021 Aleksandra KAROVSKA RISTOVSKA, Olivera RASHIKJ-CANEVSKA, Alma TASEVSKA, Ruta BRUZIENE, Monika ORECHOVA, Gonçalo PAIVA DIAS, Elisabeth BRITO, Henrik HAUBRO 2021-08-31 2021-08-31 5 2 1 13 10.32936/pssj.v5i2.224 Examination of Consumer Purchase Decisions via Neuromarketing Methods: A Social Psychology Approach <p>The aim of the study is to determine the size and strength of consumers' attitudes towards brands and to observe the effect of marketing efforts on attitudes with the support of biometric data.

This segment of diplomacy includes a series of methods and maneuvers which bring positive results to the country it uses and promotes for its own interests. Sports diplomacy is an important dimension of a country's public diplomacy, which has an important and influential role. Different countries aim to use sports diplomacy in the most effective way in favor and profit of their country, and one of these countries is the state of Kosovo. During our work we have tried to present the impact of Kosovo sports diplomacy and its role in improving the international image. Through descriptive, comparative, analytical methods as well as through interviews we have tried to shed light on how much sports diplomacy has influenced the improvement of Kosovo's international image. With the method of interviews, we have interviewed 3 experts in sports diplomacy, and we have analyzed these interviews by implementing the comparison with materials and scientific facts which are related to public diplomacy, with an emphasis on sports diplomacy. In conclusion, we can say that sports diplomacy in Kosovo should be given great importance in order to achieve greater results. Kosovo and its competent institutions need to develop specific strategies and investments for its sports diplomacy.</p> Rinor REXHEPI Vigan SAHITI Copyright (c) 2021 Rinor REXHEPI, Vigan SAHITI 2021-08-31 2021-08-31 5 2 30 38 10.32936/pssj.v5i2.247 Time Consumption and Productivity in Wood Extraction Using Traditional Cable Car <p>Forests are a very important component for the environment in Albania considering the fact that they occupy more than 36% of the country's surface. The evaluation of the working time consumption and productivity of the various sub-phases of wood extraction work, in a beech forest in Albania, with traditional methods and old equipment’s, was considered of interest in this study to highlight the weaknesses to be corrected. Considering the slope in our study site, a traditional cable car Austrian Type R-Gander (A 6832 SULZ) manufactured in 1985 was used for the extraction of timber. Trunks from a distance of 800 - 900 m were extracted using this equipment. The operating team consisted of 3 workers. 10 - 15 working days are required for the assembly and disassembly of the equipment. During the work performed, data regarding working times were collected, paying special attention to dead times, where avoidable times are high 61,0 %. The extracted volume was 31.46 m3, which corresponds to a weight of 41.82 t.</p> Ylli KORTOÇI Mirvjena KORTOÇI Copyright (c) 2021 Ylli KORTOÇI, Mirvjena KORTOÇI 2021-08-31 2021-08-31 5 2 39 45 10.32936/pssj.v5i2.239 Land Tenure of Small Islands and Coastal Areas in Economic and Defense Aspects <p>The question of the purpose of statehood hovers again to collect the pledges of the development actors.

This situation showed itself under the name of Welfare State or Social State. However, neo-liberal policies were seen as a solution to the economic problems that started to be experienced from the beginning of the 1980s, and the Social State or Welfare State practices began to decline. Depending on the expansion of neo-liberal policies, states have withdrawn from many service areas in accordance with the free market understanding. One of these withdrawals is health services.</p> <p>Health services have been transformed into free market conditions through privatization, and the health service that citizens benefit from has been transformed into paid. On the other hand, in line with neo-liberal policies, principles such as performance, contract and productivity have been introduced to healthcare workers.</p> <p>Healthcare workers and especially doctors are at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19, which started in Wuhan, China and spread to the world. In order to eradicate the epidemic, doctors had to face the worsening working conditions (suspension of the rights to resign and ask for retirement, excessive patient care, etc.) while racing against time to save the patients. This situation brings with it many problems in working life for the doctors who are fighting the epidemic in Turkey as well as in the world.</p> <p>In this study, the effect of the covid-19 epidemic in Turkey on the pandemic service of Istanbul University Istanbul Medical Faculty Chapa Hospital in the process leading to the liquidation of the social state was investigated.</p> Mortaza CHAYCHI SEMSARI Kerim KARADAL Copyright (c) 2021 Mortaza CHAYCHI SEMSARI, Kerim KARADAL 2021-08-31 2021-08-31 5 2 65 74 10.32936/pssj.v5i2.256 International Standards Regarding Protection of Children of Maltreatment <p>Child abuse is protected by international law and acts and includes all types of physical, sexual and emotional abuse.

The relationship between the mother country Iran and Turkey, immigration and identity policies in this area will be read and the consequences of this process on the immigration policies of these countries and its impact on countries will be examined and analyzed.</p> Kerim KARADAL Mortaza CHAYCHI SEMSARI Oğuz KESKİN Copyright (c) 2021 Kerim KARADAL, Mortaza CHAYCHI SEMSARI, Oğuz KESKİN 2021-08-31 2021-08-31 5 2 83 92 10.32936/pssj.v5i2.258 Consolidating Democracy in Kosovo: The Effective Functioning of Basic Institutions <p>A democracy is considered to be consolidated when no major political grouping attempts to overthrow the democratic regime or promote violence in order to seize any part of the territory from the existing state. Democracy becomes 'the only game on the town’ even when the state faces economic and political difficulties and challenges, all political groups believe and seek to find a solution within the constitutional order and democratic procedures. Namely, before any situation and difficulty in the state, the political forces in the country do not seek to solve problems by undemocratic means.</p> <p>In addition to the main factors mentioned by various authors, in the case of Kosovo, a key problem for the consolidation of democracy, consolidation and positioning in the international arena is the process of normalization of relations with Serbia and cooperation and effective functioning of the three main constitutional institutions; The Assembly, the President and the Prime Minister of Kosovo, as the main pillars of the system policy based on the principle of separation of powers.</p> <p>In principle, their greatest contribution to the consolidation of democracy in Kosovo is, the election and exercise of constitutional functions is done in accordance with the principles and norms set by the Constitution, enjoys the confidence of the majority of the population in the country, and there are no significant political forces and nor the attitudes of the public trying to replace democracy with authoritarian forms of government. In other words, echoing the metaphorical expression of American scientist Juan Linz, a consolidated democracy emerges when democracy is the only game in town.</p> Nuredin LUTFIU Agon HALABAKU Valbona FISHEKU - HALABAKU Copyright (c) 2021 Nuredin LUTFIU, Agon HALABAKU, Valbona FISHEKU - HALABAKU 2021-08-31 2021-08-31 5 2 93 100 10.32936/pssj.v5i2.235 The Right to a Prosperous Life Born and Inner: Gender Change Perspective <p>Gender change is the right of every citizen, but this invites pros and cons in society.
