Problems in Public Transport of Dhaka City
European Journal of Social and Human Sciences, 2016, Vol.(10), Is. 2, pp. 61-66.
Dhaka is one of the biggest and overpopulated cities in the world. Overcrowd is seen in most of the places. The people are to travel many places in the city for various purposes. Most of the people rely on public transport to travel in the city. Public transport is overcrowded also. Bus is the main public transport in Dhaka city. Most of the passengers are to reach their destination timely. So, they try to get into the buses at any cost. But the number of buses is low compared to the number of passengers. There is the demand-supply gape. Problems begin from here. The passengers are to compete with each other to get into the buses. Old people and women are to suffer a lot. Moreover, the passengers who get the opportunity to get into the buses face many other types of problems. This study explores that transport services in Dhaka city are congested, insecured and unreliable. The current transportation environment in Dhaka city is not passenger friendly at all. Government’s initiative, passenger friendly attitude of bus owners and staffs and passengers’ attachment to morality can solve most of the problems.

The Social Work at the Cross-Roads. How Can the Media be a Helping Hand?
European Journal of Social and Human Sciences, 2016, Vol.(10), Is. 2, pp. 67-76.
Societies are drifting towards conditions of inequality, poverty and exploitation because of the group to which they belong. In Albania, the risks of the deepening split between the groups and the increasing need for social assistance is now clearer than ever. The actors involved in social work, in their efforts to affirm the need and the professional identity of social work, encounter some rather big challenges. These efforts are supported to a very limited extent by external actors and face difficulties in reaching their target group. The need for social work policies and action form a chain of messages which goes through a communication channel. In this channel, on the way from sender to receiver, the message itself seems to lose power and importance. Why? Among many answers, one seems to prevail: The Media negligence. Media representation of social work appears to be the weakest link in the communication chain from policy makers to those who benefit from the social work system. And it requires stronger attention and research on how to make media an ally of social work support, rather than an obstacle for the profession, which is also the focus of this paper.

In Defense of Common Sense of G.E. Moore’s Realistic Theory of Truth
European Journal of Social and Human Sciences, 2016, Vol.(10), Is. 2, pp. 77-81.
The aim of this article is to study analytical philosophy, its problem and beginning. The author concerns analytical philosophy as specific way of thinking. Analytical philosophy is based on analytical method by G.E. Moore. Analysis in analytical philosophy is not only a method of logic. It is the main method of analytical philosophy and G.E. Moore’s philosophy, involving all other methods. Many philosophers think that the main problem of analytical philosophy is the problem of truth, like G.E. Moore does. But this is disputable meaning.

Using Fansubbing as an Interdisciplinary Tool for Subtitle Teaching in the Slovak Context
European Journal of Social and Human Sciences, 2016, Vol.(10), Is. 2, pp. 89-97.
The presented article deals with bringing amateur subtitles into the process of subtitle teaching. While subtitling has developed into an independent discipline within translation studies, there are still blank spaces to be filled in the area of subtitle teaching, which has been lacking especially in Slovakia. We briefly describe amateur subtitles and their history, address the issue of subtitling in Slovakia and abroad and highlight the interdisciplinarity of subtitling and subtitle teaching, which results from combining translation studies, technical aspects of subtitling and the current situation on the market, all of which constitute an important basis for subtitle teaching. We also present how amateur subtitles might be helpful in subtitle teaching, specifically because of the usual number of mistakes they contain and because they reflect the need of subtitling market and the audience. The overall aim of this article is to link text analysis, translation criticism, technical aspects and market demands in the form of amateur subtitles, which can help the students to learn by observation, analysis, criticism and feedback.
