Folk poetry, that is, lyrical calendar poetry, is a mouth-to-mouth creation from generation to generation. We can rightly say that these creations overcame the tragic ruins of centuries, always renewing, enriching, many of them, fading, nevertheless constantly in harmony with the development of the people’s life and social circumstances.</em></p> <p><em>Ancient as the people themselves, Albanian oral creativity in general, ritual lyrical songs in particular, and especially lyrical songs of calendar rites, are still fresh, wherever used, exclusively in rural settings, where part of human life consists of livestock and agriculture. Regardless of their intense developments, this creativity is constantly transformed.</em></p> 2020-04-30T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Rating Academy Ar-Ge Yazılım Yayıncılık Eğitim Danışmanlık ve Organizasyon Ticaret Ltd.

Şti JUDICIAL SUPERVISION OF SPATIAL PLANS AND THE CHALLENGES; BEYOGLU (ISTANBUL) CASE 2020-04-16T18:20:16+03:00 Adem Erdem ERBAŞ <p><em>In the Istanbul metropolitan city, there are deficiencies in the providing of urban services depending on the immigration population received with the effect of globalization. In our country, the efforts to put the urbanization process under a plan discipline were found to be equivalent in the legislation within the framework of the Zoning Law no.6785, an important factor directing the interaction between the zoning legislation and the production process of the space was the administrative judicial decisions. The conflicts created by the irregular and uncontrolled urbanization process in the space have been tried to be solved by administrative judicial decisions. In this paper, the difficulties encountered in the judicial supervision of spatial plans will be discussed through examples. A comparative examination and evaluation of the zoning plans for the protection of Beyoğlu, Perşembe Pazarı and Okmeydani, which are the subject of the judicial review in the Beyoğlu District of İstanbul in the last period, will be made on the basis of planning principles, urbanism principles and plan construction methods and techniques. The impact of judicial supervision on the spatial plan process provides important awareness for planners as well as for decision makers.</em></p> 2020-04-30T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Rating Academy Ar-Ge Yazılım Yayıncılık Eğitim Danışmanlık ve Organizasyon Ticaret Ltd.

Şti ECONOMIC ASPECTS OF THE CITY OF PRIZREN XIII – XV CENTURY 2020-04-20T15:12:31+03:00 Bedri MUHADRI <p><em>Prizren during the c. XIII-XV was a developed economic center. This development was made possible thanks to several factors: Prizren was an important center of medieval roads for the region; In Prizren, the Ragusan consulate (1332) was opened as a requirement for the development of more successful business activities. Thus Prizren in the 13th-15th century was a city of traders and trade exchanges. Traders in defense of their own interests created their own associations, such as shoemakers in Prizren. Commercial products came from the most developed countries, such as Venice, Naples, Ragusa, Constantinople etc. Traders operating in Prizren, besides importing economic products, they also exported numerous products such as cereals, barley, fern, silk, honey, etc; As well as mining products such as: lead, zinc, and gold-plated silver, known as silver (galam). The sources speak for a large number of traders, as well as for large monetary circulation through the form of lending and debiting.

Şti EXAMINING THE IMPACT OF INDUSTRY 4.0 ON EDUCATION 2020-04-26T13:44:27+03:00 Zeynep AYER Hanife AKGÜL <p><em>Industry 4.0 is the concept that has been on the agenda for nearly a decade; but other than those closely involved in the issue, it is a little-known concept yet. Industry 4.0, which expresses the Fourth Industrial Revolution, promises to make production with smart factories and digital Technologies with almost no need for labor. Nowadays, when the technology develops quite fast, people's daily life styles change. In occupational groups where technology use is intense, there are differentiations in the way people express their feelings not only in business or academic life but also in private life. </em></p> <p><em>In order to capture Industry 4.0, it is necessary to design, develop and produce technology in every field. However, in addition to production, it is important to train qualified labor force who can use this new technology. Taking into account that daily ordinary work will be undertaken by artificial intelligence initially, it is better to understand that education is not limited to school for individuals who want to continue to play a role in economic life, and the importance of continuing to learn in different fields for individuals who continue to study. Exactly at this point, the education sector appears as an area that needs to be studied in detail under Industry 4.0. Within the scope of Industry 4.0, which is also very important besides the knowledge, an education policy which gives importance to creative thought and which is based on lifelong learning should be designed. In this study, it is aimed to discuss the effects and consequences of Industry 4.0 in the education sector. Fictional analysis and case study were used as the method of study.</em></p> 2020-05-05T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Rating Academy Ar-Ge Yazılım Yayıncılık Eğitim Danışmanlık ve Organizasyon Ticaret Ltd.

Especially the 1960s and the following period were the years when the voices of the civilian movements were heard in higher tones. The pressure that was put by civil society on governments and business was resulted increased social responsibility awareness among all actors. Corporate responsibility, including social responsibility, is about integrating ethical, social, and environmental concerns to business operations.</em></p> <p><em>Ahilik emerged from Anatolia with social/military/economic functions. Even though it lost its military functions as the Ottoman Empire arose, Ahilik assumed responsibility for the continuity of social unity for centuries, implemented a foundation for business ethics, and played role in meeting the needs of society.

They tend to look at social phenomena within the framework of structured presuppositions, both as a product of the social environment and to the extent of their ability and capacity. In other words, most people, perceive reality distorted behind a fog screen. Based on this assumption, the problematic of the subjective reality of the subjects of politics is perceived as objective reality.

Şti SOCIAL AND SPATIAL REFLECTION OF THE NEED FOR URBAN SECURITY: GATED COMMUNITIES 2020-04-13T01:38:45+03:00 Demet ONUR <p><em>Cities are spaces in which security and shelter needs are provided for societies. However cities have grown dramatically, become more crowded and more dense recently. This pace of urbanization has led to social phenomena such as insecurity, danger, anxiety of life quality and status anxiety becoming a problem in all the main cities. Fear of crimes caused by dense urban spaces, owercrowding and urban poverty has led to the need for spatial protection through situations such as spatial differentation and status discrimination. The new middle class of the modern world fears poverty and crime. This fear has formed gated communities in cities. The biggest factor that brings out gated communities is the need for security. The reasons such as increasing the quality of life, the desire to live together with homogeneous groups and showing the income level in the space with. The consumption elements are also considered among the needs to create a gated community. Another main reason for the formation of isolated communities, which are created by the need for urban security, is the desire to live away from urban crime. </em></p> <p><em>The aim of this study is to handle the gated communities that emerged from the process of social and spatial dimensions. The subject of the study is to demonstrate that gated communities which create spatial inequality with the need for urban security, simply cover up rather than eliminate crime in cities, and that this create social inequality and injustice in cities. This study emphasizes that spatial segregation must be controlled by urban policies in order for urban security to be experienced equally in the entire city. </em></p> 2020-04-30T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Rating Academy Ar-Ge Yazılım Yayıncılık Eğitim Danışmanlık ve Organizasyon Ticaret Ltd.
