Here and Now, There and Then: Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University Drives Innovation and Invention, Locally and Globally
PMU is embracing how local and global collaborative engagement can synergistically reinforce each other to improve lives in the here-and-nowAlthough we have achieved great things at PMU, our work upon the local and global stages is far from finished, We will continue to move forward with enthusiasm and determination.”AL-KHOBAR, EASTERN PROVINCE, SAUDI ARABIA, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Starting several years ago with Vision 2030, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia set forth a bold agenda of economic and social transformation to open up the nation to the world. Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University (PMU), a prestigious institute of higher learning in Saudi Arabia, is continuing to do its part in progressing Vision 2030 and the agenda's themes of an Ambitious Nation, a Thriving Economy, and a Vibrant Society. In accordance with these far-reaching themes, PMU is also helping advance the goals of partnership, prosperity, peace, and understanding worldwide.— Dr. Issa Alansari (President)
Among PMU's many relevant activities has been the funding of special projects for university researchers and the securing of patents for new inventions. Through the Prince Turki bin Muhammad bin Fahd Center for Creativity and Entrepreneurship (PTCCE) at PMU, the university is supporting the projects and research of both male and female students. In particular, PMU is ensuring funding allocations for women researchers and students as they make key contributions to Vision 2030 in the area of sustainability via the development of clean, renewable energy sources and applications.
In these endeavors, PMU has also partnered with the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). A United States-based non-profit organization, NAI plays a pivotal role in recognizing and promulgating inventions made by its members for the benefit of global society.
Furthermore, to proactively envision and move toward achieving an equitably prosperous future, the Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd Center for Futuristic Studies (PMFCFS) and the World Futures Studies Federation (WFSF) have announced a continuation of their futures research grant through this year. PMU has accordingly put out a new, third call for research proposals on "Thinking about alternative futures...", a widely ranging scholarly project aligning with Vision 2030 by exploring sustainability, wellbeing, and adaptability to unpredicted events.
Overall, through these efforts and more, PMU is managing to maintain a broad focus encompassing both home and abroad. The university is embracing how local positive change and global collaborative engagement can synergistically reinforce each other to improve lives in the here-and-now, as well as the there-and-then.
"All of us at PMU are very proud of what we are accomplishing in supporting research, innovation, and engagement within our community in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and across the full community of nations worldwide," said Dr. Issa Al Ansari, President of PMU. "We truly believe that tremendous opportunity exists for global citizens to cooperatively forge a future where prosperity is shared and accessible to all."
A prime example of diligent individual effort cumulatively benefiting the world's population—and the health of the planet itself—is the electric vehicle. While fossil fuels have powered humanity's technological rise since the Industrial Revolution began more than two centuries ago, while also historically serving as a key source of wealth for Saudi Arabia, these fuels do not represent the future of energy generation by our global species.
PMU members are thus working on developing electric vehicles that can run on renewable sources of energy. In this vein, ten female students from PMU's College of Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering recently succeeded in designing and manufacturing an environmentally friendly electric car. The three-wheeled, joystick-controlled vehicle utilizes a solar-power charging station and performed admirably in test runs. The vehicle represents the culmination of an important hands-on, skills-building exercise that will empower PMU students to continue innovating and developing the modes of transportation humankind will progressively adopt in the coming decades. The distinguished graduation project was honored at a ceremony held by the university administration and attended by Dr. Al Ansari.
"At PMU, we encourage women to pursue careers in STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—and have made it a point to ensure funding allocation for both men and women," said Dr. Al Ansari. "The electric vehicle demonstration is evidence of how a balanced approach broadens innovation—innovation which will be critical in meeting the challenges of the 21st century."
The PTCCE is a catalyst for electric vehicle and other Vision 2030-aligned research and development. Beyond supporting and enriching the ideas of young people, the Center for Creativity and Entrepreneurship assists in turning these ideas into economically viable and attractive projects and applications at both the local and the global level.
Also playing a critical role is the Patent Center, established under the Deanship of Research at PMU. The Patent Center supports the protection of creative scholarly activities, innovation, and discoveries involving faculty, staff, students, and others participating in PMU programs, with a major element of this support being the assistance with securing patents through coordination with NAI.
Five patents were recently awarded by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to inventions by PMU community members. The patents represent a range of disciplines, from health and medicine to electrical and mechanical engineering and materials science. One of the patented inventions uses artificial intelligence (AI) for early diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, a neurodegenerative condition, as well as cardiovascular diseases by searching for telltale physiological, voice, and handwritten patterns displayed by patients. A second invention has applications in the power transmission industry and involves the fabrication of copper wire with enhanced electrical conductivity plus the desirable properties of high strength and ductility. The third invention is a novel kind of separator that can more effectively dehumidify air, with applications in the HVAC, aerospace, and natural gas industries. The fourth invention is a highly practical and versatile bento-style lunch box. The fifth invention describes the preparation of a polyolefin-carbon nanomaterial composite that offers excellent thermal and electrical conductivity along with flexibility, toughness, and degradation resistance.
"Through our dedicated Centers and partnerships, we are finding extraordinary success in promoting and protecting innovation and invention at PMU," said Al Ansari.
Reflecting the quality education that PMU offers to its students as well as its sustained support for academic staff, the university was recently rated highly in the QS World University Rankings, an annual publication of university rankings by Quacquarelli Symonds, a United Kingdom-based higher education analysis company. Overall, PMU was ranked in the top 651 to 700 universities around the world in the QS University World Rankings 2023, published in June. The university has also been recognized as one of the world's top universities for performance in the subjects of mechanical engineering (401-450) and computer science (601-650) by the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022.
The growing number of accolades for PMU's members, as well as the university's growing global reputation, collectively speak to the fruition of the themes of progress and prosperity in Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030.
"Although we have achieved great things at PMU, our work upon the local and global stages is far from finished," said Dr. Al Ansari. "We will continue to move forward with enthusiasm and determination."
Historical novel Revolution: 80 Days offers global, never-before-seen perspective on Gomburza and the 1872 Cavite Mutiny
Filipino historian Arius Lauren Raposas delivers with his latest book Revolution: 80 Days a riveting story of reform and redemption for the 1872 Cavite Mutiny.TOKYO, JAPAN, August 5, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- “The revolution will not die today. Hiraya manawari.” Multi-awarded Filipino historian Arius Lauren Raposas delivers with his latest book “Revolution: 80 Days” a riveting story of reform and redemption for the sole survivor of the 1872 Cavite Mutiny.
This protagonist, a soldier turned migrant worker, believed he was the only one left to carry the ideals of the Gomburza, an acronym for three Filipino priests (Gomes, Burgos, Zamora) who were slain by Spaniards due to being implicated with the mutiny.
Featuring a global cast, the historical novel attempts to properly place the importance of developments in the Philippines during this time in the context of international affairs.
“As a student of history and the social sciences, I have been mystified by the events of 1872. Teodoro Agoncillo called it ‘the beginning of Filipino nationalism.’ Likewise, Jose Rizal placed the events of 1872 in high regard,” said Raposas, who also stated that his conceptualization of the work’s key points began as early as 2016.
He was referring to National Scientist Teodoro Agoncillo, who once wrote, “There is no Philippine history before 1872.” Yet today, many have forgotten the legacy of this watershed period for Filipino nationalism, highlighted by recent controversial issues such as “Majoha.”
Former University of the Philippines Diliman Chancellor Michael L. Tan thus lamented in one of his columns with the Philippine Daily Inquirer, “There’s so little effort to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Gomburza.”
Raposas, on his part, believes the timing for his book could have not been more impeccable, which has been a finalist in the New Adult Category of Lampara Prize 2021.
Besides the protagonist’s homeland Philippines, Japan has also figured significantly in this excellent blend of adventure, economics, politics, and historical fiction.
“The plot took example from Filipino migrants in Japan such as Artemio Ricarte and Jose Ishikawa Ramos,” according to Raposas, carefully using the characters’ respective native languages in their dialogues when possible.
“Even if it is historical fiction, intensive research is necessary. I did not spare anything to ensure this work, years in the making, will stand up with the best in the world,” Raposas added.
Speaking of historical accuracy, while many of the characters are obviously historical figures, is the protagonist one of them?
“Not really,” explained Raposas, “although you may think of it more precisely as a composite of various inspirations. Using creative license, so to speak. What is more important, I believe, is where we draw the line between fiction and reality.”
Revolution: 80 Days is available in three different formats (digital, paperback, hardbound) in major retail platforms around the world, including Amazon, Google Books, and Kinokuniya.
About the author
With a heart to honor God and the people, Arius Lauren Raposas has faithfully served in the executive and the legislative branches of government in the Philippines. He finished a bachelor’s degree in history (magna cum laude) and a master’s degree in public administration (thesis track) at the University of the Philippines Diliman. Besides his academic and research work, he has authored a number of literary works through the years, a roster that includes Code Antony (2010), Run to the Sky (2017), Countdown to Inferno (2020), Kotabahara: The City of God (2020), Muni: Dream Princess (2020), and Revolution: 80 Days (2022). He has shared knowledge related to his expertise through national and international media appearances. In addition, he has established a humble presence in social media, where his history website called Filipino Historian (2012) reaches approximately a million people each day on average.

"Mama . . . Yes, Anak?" by Ma. Luisa Campos-Cagingin recounts family's experiences, strugglesMUNTINLUPA CITY, PHILIPPINES, February 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Families caring for children with advanced autism can have a challenging time. In the 1980s, an era when the condition was practically unheard of by the general population, it was even more difficult. In her memoir "Mama . . . Yes, Anak?" author, doctor and educator Ma. Luisa Campos-Cagingin recounts the journey of her son and their efforts to give him the best life possible.

With this, readers can draw inspiration as well as useful advice on how to handle similar situations. They can also appreciate the difficulties faced by the author, her son and their family particularly during that time period when such conditions were not so well known to the public or even the medical establishment. This shows the enormity of the challenges they faced and just how the family rose to the occasion to do right by Chico.
"What inspired me to write the book was to be able to share our experience and maybe inspire the readers, and show them that as challenging as it may be, the fulfillment of having a special child to rear and love is one of God's greatest gifts." Cagingin says. Readers will see the travels and travails of the family, their experiences amidst difficult situations as well as humorous ones. Full of laughs, tears and moving moments, Cagingin's story will reveal what true and unconditional love is all about.

The “Sandy Award” is named in honor of Sandy McDonnell, one of the driving forces behind the current character education movement in the United States.— Dr. Thomas Lickona

Borba is the award-winning author of 24 books, most recently Thrivers, a science-backed guide that helps parents and educators teach the essential character strengths kids need to become “thrivers”- young people who flourish in a rapidly changing, digitally-driven and uncertain world. Her best-selling book, UnSelfie, is a crucial guide to address the staggering decrease in empathy in children from toddler to teen.
"Michele Borba's warmth, sincerity and passion for character are her superpowers," added Dr. Arthur Schwartz, president of Character.org. "She also has that rare gift to translate emerging research into practical wisdom. Her two books Thrivers and Building Moral Intelligence should be read by every parent striving to foster and model the character strengths."
