  • Use of geographic information systems to choose the safest burial sites of
           hazardous waste in Medinah

    • Authors: Ohood Ayid Al-Rehaily
      Pages: 1 - 16
      Abstract: This Study aims at utilizing GIS as a technique to assess the location of the burial-General، to choose the new sites and to determine the viability of the territory of the Medina to establish a landfill of hazardous wastes and to produce a digital map of the best and safe burial sites relying on a set of standards developed based on the principles of the Basel Convention's global select design and operation of landfills hazardous wastes، in the severe drought areas. By using the available data of the study area and the technology tools of GIS and remote sensing، the required standards were set out. They were converted them into maps representing the most important criteria of geological and geomorphology, social, economic and environmental considerations and standards of public acceptance that have been processed using the tools of spatial analysis and statistical base. A digital database has hence become available allowing a cartography suitability model to be introduced، optimal locations for the safe landfill of hazardous wastes to be identified. The study concluded that only 2% of the Medinah lands is optimal for future landfills of hazardous wastes according to standards of Basel World. By using Cartographic model، the study concluded that there are three sites suitable for safe landfill of hazardous waste, enabling responsible bodies to formulate engineering guidelines that would allow the burial processes to take place without inflicting damages to environmental، natural or human resources in the area.

  • Of Chora and the Taming of the Political Uncanny: Sir Walter Scott’s The
           Highland Widow as a Nationalizing Tale

    • Authors: Zahra A Hussein Ali
      Pages: 5 - 22
      Abstract: The argument and conclusions of this study do not contradict the positions that have been taken with regard to Scott’s Toryism and its endorsement of Britishization. The study, however, takes issue with critical approaches that sidestep the implicit connections of Scott’s pro-Britishization and his approach to the problem of the Scottish antisyzygy to key framing theoretical notions. Focusing on the underreserached The Highland Widow, the study explores two framing notions— chora and the political uncanny-that illuminate Scott’s discourse on Britishization in a post-Culloden era. The study posits that the novella considers the immediate post-Culloden experiences of the Gael subject in terms of a dialectical interrelationship among the nationalizing tale, the uncanny (which should be rejected), and chora (which should be endorsed and trusted). To put succinctly this interrelationship, the nationalizing tale envisions an ideal egalitarian political structure. While the cultural taming of the political uncanny provides the Gael male subject with a focused rational mind that helps him acknowledge the demands for sociopolitical sobriety and the proper channeling of cultural values to fulfill lucrative pursuits, chora, a receptacle-like space that works affectively to install in the Gael a desire for assimilating into a newly emerging national collectivity, provides a structured space in which he reconstitutes himself within the abstract identity of Britishness. The novella emphasizes three processes that mark the future national state: the hegemony of Anglicization is bridled, Celticism is reformed, and Britishization configures as a guiding secular logos.

  • Grammatical Homogeneity

    • Authors: Husain Boabbas
      Pages: 17 - 29
      Abstract: Homogeneity is a concept used by grammarians to explain several grammatical provisions dispersed amongst multiple fields. This research paper examines this concept and its impact on Arabic grammar at the syntactical and interpretation levels and how it relates to other rules. This study compiles locations and texts in which the term is mentioned and others used by grammarians to relay the same concept. The impact of this issue is clear in its ability to display the pivotal impact of the concept of homogeneity in the Arabic linguistic rhetoric. Despite that fact that it appears clearly in the field of comparative literature, there is still some room for further investigation in the grammatical discourse due to lack of attention granted to it. This research paper includes an introduction and three research points, the first is for the term (Almoshakalah). The second which investigates the theoretical framework of homogeneity and the third which investigates various forms of grammatical and linguistical homogeneity after which the conclusion states essential research points.

  • An Assessment of Various Theoretical Approaches to Bankruptcy Law

    • Authors: Saleh Al-Barashdi, Horace Yeung
      Pages: 23 - 36
      Abstract: A broad diversity of interests could be affected by the bankruptcy of companies. If a company is bankrupt, aquestion on whether the main goal of bankruptcy rules should be to protect the interests of creditors or it should create a balance between the interests of creditors as well as non-creditors, e.g., employees, suppliers, and third parties. A number of theories on the policy underpinning bankruptcy law exist. These theories can be, in general, categorized into two main groups: i) the first theory is of the view that the main objective of bankruptcy law should be merely to maximize the collective returns to creditors, ii) the second theory is to create a balance between the rules protecting creditors versus others, as bankruptcy creates a community of parties who are affected by the debtor’s financial distress beside creditors such as employees, customers, supplier, and local authority. The purpose of this article is to analyze, compare, and evaluate the theories underpinning bankruptcy law.

  • Factorial construct of the academic parental involvement according to
           paternity, maternity and study stage in Sultanate of Oman

    • Authors: Taghreed Turki Al Said, Ahmed Muhamed Shabib
      Pages: 31 - 43
      Abstract: The parental academic involvement is an important variable in achieving cooperation between home and school with the aim of improving the performance of their children and boosting the school's attempt to understand and appreciate the values and cultures of families to effectively meet the needs of their children. It is also considered an added value to develop the educational process of children at all ages. The importance of the research lies in its findings which reveal that the parental academic involvement of the selected sample of students in light of parenthood and school stage (secondary-university) is a decided advantage, as this makes a better understanding of this variable and its constituents in Oman. This would help draw guidelines and instructions and give rise to counseling programs, making parents and educationalists aware of the educational process, and improving the academic performance and the behavior of their different. The study sample consists of 210 students in their 10th grade at the secondary stage and 152 male and female students in their 2nd year in the College of Education at Sultan Qaboos University (SQU). Two scales were devised, one which is applied to secondary stage students and another applied to SQU students. The findings show that there are specific factors related to parental academic involvement concept, as there are fatherhood and motherhood factors applicable to secondary stage and others applicable to university students. These factors vary by type (Father-Mother) and the school stage (secondary–university).

  • Attitudes of University Students towards the "New History of Bahrain and
           Citizenship" Course in view of Some Variables

    • Authors: Sharaf Mohammed Al-Mezaal
      Pages: 45 - 64
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to measure the attitudes of Bahrain University (BU) students towards the "New History of Bahrain and Citizenship" Course and to show differences in students' attitudes based on certain variables developed specifically for this study. To achieve this, the author developed a 50-item questionnaire on a 5-point Likert scale, based on literature review available on this field, with half of the questionnaire items worded negatively. Adequate methods were used to assess the validity and reliability of the questionnaire. The developed tool was then administered to 220 students enrolled in the above-mentioned course in the summer semester of the academic year 2015/2016. Overall, the findings of the study show that BU students demonstrated positively-oriented neutral attitudes towards the said course. Moreover, the findings show statistically significant differences in students' attitudes towards the "New History of Bahrain and Citizenship" Course.  This can be attributed to the average time students spend at home to study the course and to the section which the students register in. No statistically significant differences, however, were observed between students' attitudes that could be attributed to gender, college, year of study and grade point average (GPA). In view of this, it is recommended that the course specifications are to be reconsidered, and the methods of teaching and assessment be improved. Students should also be encouraged to connect the course to their real life.

  • Role of physical settings on increasing flood hazard in Muscat Built-up
           areas (2007-2015) using GIS

    • Authors: Rana N. Jawarneh, Said S. Almushaiki
      Pages: 65 - 78
      Abstract: This study aims at evaluating selected environmental attributes of urban development pathways in relation to their impacts on increasing cyclone-related flooding in the Governorate of Muscat for the years 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2015. A probability-weighted flood hazard map for the 2015 urban areas was produced by combining all selected environmental attributes into one probability equation, with each attribute given a weight. The 2015 urban flood hazard map showed that 31.7 km² (8.1% of total urban areas) of the built up area is located in the very high flooding hazard zone, 88.3 km² (22.6% of urban area) is located in the high flood hazard zone, 130.5 km² (33.5% of urban area) is located in the medium flooding hazard zone, and 113.4 km² (29.1% of urban area) and 26.1 km² (6.7% of urban area) located in the low and very low flooding hazard zones. The outputs from this research emphasize the potential of environmental forces to increase flood damages. The findings provide decision makers with spatially-explicit evidences on affected areas for more effective evacuation and rescue plans.

  • Academic Staff Attitudes in Jordanian Universities towards Citizen
           Journalism as a Source of Information:A Survey Study

    • Authors: Riham B Odeh, Mohamed Najib El Sarayrah
      Pages: 79 - 95
      Abstract: This study aims at discussing the attitudes of academic staff in Jordanian universities to citizen journalism and its role as a source of information. The study uses the survey methodology. Jordan University and Petra University were chosen as samples representing the universities. A total number of 300 questionnaires were distributed, 209 questionnaires were filled constituting the actual sample involved in the study. The study shows that about two thirds, 66.5% of the respondents, believe that the term journalism covers what is called citizen journalism. The findings reveal that the highest percentage, 44.3% of the respondents, believe that the term journalism does not cover citizen journalism, which can be attributed to the reason that they do not adhere to specific professional standards, while 41.4% of the respondents think it is not professional journalism. It is as low as 2.9% of the respondents believe that this type of journalism lacks credibility and is biased.

  • Studying Linguistics Moderation of Qur’an Reciters from Alhijazians’
           and Altamimies’ Perspectives , alfatih and al,imaalah with special
           reference to ,abuu ,umar’s Recitation

    • Authors: Ali Sulaiman Al-jawabrah
      Pages: 97 - 107
      Abstract: This paper aims at studying linguistic moderation of Qur’an reciters and how it is viewed from Alhijazians’ and Altamimies’ perspectives. This study adopts, abuu, umar recitation and his approach of, alfatih and al,imaalah etc., as a model. The paper also introduces lexical and contextual definitions of linguistic moderation. It examines the linguistic moderation of, abuu, umar’s recitations and discusses some of the aspects of linguistic moderation and the reasons behind it. The most significant findings of this study show that linguistic moderation is a combination of two different famous and common linguistic habits when reciting Qur’an, including as an example, the use of both alfatih and al,imaalah at the same time. According to this approach, one linguistic habit is chosen in a specific context with a specific style or word, while using other linguistic habits in other cases. Other findings of this study also reveal that linguistic moderation used by, abuu, umar can be attributed to linguistic and dialectal reasons.

  • Continuous Assessment Skills used by Arabic Language Female Teachers of
           Basic Education in Oman

    • Authors: Ibtisam Abdullah Ali Alyafei
      Pages: 109 - 122
      Abstract: The study aims at identifying learners' continuous assessment skills required by female Arabic language teachers in the first cycle of basic education in Oman. It also aims at determining the level of mastery of these skills by female Arabic language teachers in the first cycle of basic education, in order to propose a training programme that would help Arabic language teachers to acquire these skills while they are still in service. The researcher designed a self-assessment scale that can be used by Arabic language teachers in the first cycle of basic education in Oman. The scale was validated by being refereed by 12 arbitrators and applied to an exploratory sample of teachers. The research sample consisted of 54 female Arabic language teachers in the first cycle of basic education in Oman working in the Governorate of Dhofar, Sultanate of Oman. The nine supervisors applied the memorandum to them. The study findings reveal that there is low performance in a number of skills. Parents are not contacted before the beginning of the school year to inform them of the proposed plan to improve the level of the student, keeping a record of discussion refers to the ideas of students, and apply a short test after each unit. The study recommended the need to train Arabic language teachers in the first stage of basic education in the skills of continuous assessment, as well as to benefit from the proposed training program. Establish a system of integrated training programs that help develop continuous evaluation and draw attention to the basis of the main issue built by the interaction portfolio Between the parties to the educational system.

      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to define social and psychological problems faced by unknown parentage in foster families in the Governorate of Muscat. It is a descriptive study using comprehensive survey method for children between 12 and 18 years of unknown parentage in foster families in the Governorate of Muscat. Data was collected using questionnaire, and analysis yielded a number of findings. The most important of which is that problems did not appear largely due to the efforts of families in taking care of children. This is because most of the children do not know about their real social situation as the vast majority of foster families do not communicate this to them. However, there are some problems such as some children inability to cope with others. Accordingly, the study proposes some recommendations based on the findings of this study. This includes a recommendation to raise the level of care provided to children, making use of media and civil society organizations to promote the idea of fostering, and create some kind of cooperation and interaction among governmental organizations to accommodate this category of children.

  • Interrelationship between the History and Archaeology, Islamic City of
           Qalhāt: Case Study

    • Authors: Mohammed Abdullah Alqadahat, Khaled Douglas
      Pages: 141 - 152
      Abstract: This study aims to clarify the relationship between archaeology and history. Archaeological evidence can bear witness to historical events. Such events can be discovered, studied, and classified by archaeologists and presented to historians as authentic material, especially in the absence of written sources. Thus, the joint work between archaeologists and historians could help to reformulate past events into coherent historical records. The Islamic city of Qalhat is taken as an example in this study. It is almost absent from historical sources although it was a very important port city during the 13th to 17th century. On a very few occasions, it was mentioned by some travelers who visited the city and described it as a living and flourishing city. However, so few and such short records do not provide enough evidence of the history of the city. Only archaeology can narrate the complete story of the city where the earliest and latest phases of occupation were fully uncovered. Archaeological excavations revealed in detail the high level of architecture that the inhabitants of Qalhat had and how the city was well organized and divided into different quarters as well as the fortification system and an international network of trade relations. All of this archaeological evidence will enable historians to rewrite the history of the Islamic city of Qalhat based on solid grounds.
