Earlier this week, His Excellency, the Rector of King Khalid University, Prof. Dr. Faleh Bin Raja Allah Al-Solamy, inaugurated a comprehensive range of e-services. In cooperation with the Scientific Council Secretariat, the General Directorate of Information Technology has implemented and staged the launch of e-government services. Because of this, faculty members will substantially benefit from three different services including - but not limited to- the academic file, the promotion system, and merit-based scientific excellence awards. At the beginning of the inauguration ceremony, the Deputy CIO, Mr. Wael Asiri, presented a detailed explanation of the new e-services. In his presentation, he talked about the essential features of the services that will be offered to faculty members. He showed how the academic file service enables a faculty member to organize and store all of their academic information in one convenient location. He also explained how the promotion system service allows the faculty member to submit an e-request, in addition to the ability to measure and assess numerical promotion rates. Moreover, Mr. Asiri showed the attendees how to apply for the scientific excellence awards in its various categories. In his speech, the University Vice-President for Graduate Studies and Scientific Research, Dr. Saad Al-Omari, explained that the e-services developed for the Scientific Council were under the Rector’s guidance. Dr. Al-Omari further added that the Rector stressed the necessity for automating all faculty member e-transactions to reduce the estimated time required when performing related operations. Previously,  a delay would occur in most of the faculty members’ promotion requests. As a result, the new e-service system serves to reduce administrative efforts, increase transparency in procedures, and enable the applicant to manage and track requests. To conclude, Dr. Al-Omari emphasized that the new system will significantly reduce the time it takes to submit promotion and/or excellence requests by creating an integrated academic file for each faculty member that includes a separate area detailing scientific output. At the end of the ceremony, the University Rector directed officials of the Scientific Council Secretariat to immediately begin deployment of the new services at the beginning of the spring semester. Finally, he thanked all those who were involved in this promising project that is a key component in the University's vision and ambition to be a leading university in the regional and global arenas. As a final point, it is worth mentioning that the regulations of the new services passed through a full procedural cycle beginning with the request submission, then passing through the council of the department, the college and the scientific council, and ending with arbitration.
Corruption is considered one of the most serious and bad phenomenon in the world, which violates the community’s peace and security, that it affects the major and main organizations in the country, such as health, education and other public institutions and there is no doubt that there are consequences for not fighting corruption which may harm individuals and societies as well. In a sense of responsibility towards the community in raising awareness of the risks of corruption, Girls’ Community College conducted a program on fighting corruption and protecting integrity Where the dean and staff members attended it. The program began by explaining the components of the national anti-corruption Commission (integrity) logo which included the verse (and seek not corruption in the earth; lo! Allah loveth not corrupters) and an image of eye to confirm the message of fighting Corruption and its practices, and a palm which symbolizes the Saudi national identity. Then, the concept of integrity is defined as a set of values and principles that guide behavior towards a proper performance. It’s also defined as being away from bad thing. The program has addressed the most important goals of the national strategy of fighting corruption and protecting integrity in various forms, and how to fortify the Saudi society against the risks of corruption by adapting religious and ethical values and directing citizens and residents to respect legal texts in order to achieve justice among community members. A detailed explanation about the concept of corruption and its different forms were introduced since corruption has multiple dimensions and its concepts are varied according to the way we look through. Each behavior which violated any of the rules and regulations imposed by the system is corruption, any behavior threatens public interest is corruption, and any abuse of any governmental job to achieve private gains is corruption as well. Corruption has several forms including bribery, embezzlement of public property, abuse of position, illegal enrichment and nepotism which is the most widespread kind among them all.  Dr. Monira Abu Hamama, the dean of the college, presented a detailed speech about honesty, its significance, and implications. She said:” Today I’m here with you to talk about honesty, not because I'm better than you or my knowledge is more than yours.   But those words are to remind myself and yours that we are all responsible of the job that falls upon our shoulders. The word Honesty means (feel safe). During the period of our Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him, Quraysh Atheists asked him for his advice and opinion as he was known among them of his integrity and honesty. She, moreover, shed light on the different kinds of honesty such as honesty in worshiping Allah and conveying speech, etc. She concluded her speech by talking about the importance of honesty and its effect on individuals and societies, winning the satisfaction of Allah, and achieving justice. At the end of the workshop, some activities were presented including pictures’ analysis.   
We have reached the critical final exam period, and as a result, students will undergo intense studying and revising. During these final weeks, families of students will stand with their children to help them successfully overcome exams and obtain desired results. Prayers and Anticipation Thousands of families are waiting to hear good news in regards to their child's exam results. Every family tries to provide their children with an optimal environment. Much stress usually accompanies exams, and this brings out about the need to search for proven methods that create the conditions of academic excellence. Because the testing period is conducted over a short time, many of the students double their efforts during these weeks when studying.  Numerous characteristics accompany the final exam period – positive and negative – that we should be cognizant of. Educators and psychologists warn of resorting to stimulants during this period because they may result in a sharp drop in the ability to concentrate and a sharp increase in sleep disorders. The Positive Role of the Family The preparations of families for the season of final exams are of utmost importance to students and their parents. Educators confirm that it is necessary to manage time efficiently, organize their study time and take a break, as well as sleeping and eating well. The family should help to bear the burden by assisting in the management of time and creating the appropriate atmosphere for the examinee to study and revise thoroughly without being subjected to psychological pressures and the feeling of fear or anxiety. Many students have a problem in retaining what they have studied as soon as they enter the exam room or start reading the questions. Be that as it may, they are distracted by mundane social activities, and they encounter negative psychological symptoms before the exams such as boredom and motivational factors – a lack thereof –  in addition to suffering anxiety and drowsiness. Therefore, the student has to escape from studying to watch TV programs, talk on the phone, or overeating because he/she feels that all information, inside of his/her mind, will not be retained. for moor
