The relationship between the East and West and the adjustment to western traditions and mores are two major themes Alaa Al-Aswani discusses in his novels Emarrat Ya'copian (2002) and Chicago (2008).These novels are mainly concerned with the themes of clash of civilization, interracial relationships, cultural traumas and the westernized intellectual groups crisis of identity in their traditional societies. In these novels Al-Aswani not only give us a direct image of the Egyptian society but most of the time, in the background, appears the shade of another society, a society each of the characters dreams of living in: that is the country of peace, justice and egalitarianism. That ideal hoped society most of the time is cited as being the western society in which most of the fictional characters in the novels subject to study spent long periods of their lifetime. However; Al-Aswani challenges this belief. He argues that most of these characters end up as failures and that life in the west is not successful all the time....
In almost all of his fictional and dramatic works, Wole Soyinka criticizes and mocks the intellectual group for their passive inadequate responses to the decadent socio-political reality prevailing Nigeria in his realistic comments on injustice, filthiness, poverty and corrupt practices in business and politics. This appears clearly in his novel 'The Interpreters' which launches a supremely witty critique of the Nigerian society led by a corrupt, laughable, and self-hating elite. The few intellectuals in the novel ( Sagoe, Sekoni, Egbo, Bandele, Kola and Dehinwa) who attempt to change the ugly situation prevailing their country are portrayed as failures who instead of initiating reforms to the decadent system, degenerate into frivolity. This is the impression a first reading of Soyinka’s The Interpreters creates in readers through its fixed flat characters who only criticize and mock the sociopolitical reality surrounding them but after all cannot bring about positive change to it....
Abstract Islamic Banking in Saudi Arabia is emerging because of the social implications prevailing in this banking system. Saudi Arabia has both conventional and Islamic banks, but many banks have shifted from conventional to Islamic in the last few years. The present study was conducted to analyze the perception of Saudi society towards Islamic banking as far as its ‘shariah’ rules are concerned. The study aims at measuring to what extent society is satisfied with this banking system and what is their perception towards working of this banking? Based on the findings, some important suggestions have been mentioned at the end....
The term wireless networking refers to technology that enables two or more computers to communicate using standard network protocols and utilizing radio waves. With the rapid development of wireless networking, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been emerged which consist of large amount of small resource constrained devices; called sensors. S-MAC is a medium-access control (MAC) protocol designed for wireless sensor networks, it is different from traditional wireless MACs such as IEEE 802.11 in several ways such as energy conservation and self-configuration. A lot of protocols are designed to reduce energy consumption of the wireless sensor nodes. Periodic listen and sleep protocol, adaptive listen protocol and prolong listen protocol are examples of these protocols. In this book, a new S-MAC protocol named; "prediction S-MAC protocol" is proposed to improve the performance of the previous S-MAC protocols.

Saudi Arabia is blessed with vast production of dates and have potential to contribute to export earning to a large extend .The date has an important place in the structure of Saudi Economy on both national level generally and on the level of agricultural sector particularly because of its active contribution in the economic activity, increasing the Saudi exports and fulfilling the needs of local market. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is at the forefront of the countries which produce and export the date at the same time and in the tradition of today’s international trade, The Kingdom has many comparative and competitive advantages in both production and export process. In spite of advantages Saudi dates are not getting due recognition despite their superior quality, their presence in the global market is very limited and not all right to their volume of production....

With the rapid development of wireless networking and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been immerged. WSNs consist of large amount of small, low-end, resource constrained devices, called sensors. Since sensor nodes are usually intended to be deployed in unattended or even hostile environments, it is almost impossible to recharge or replace their batteries. One of the most important research issues in the wireless sensor networks is to extend the network lifetime by energy efficient battery management. So, there are a lot of approaches that are designed to reduce the power consumption of the wireless sensor nodes. In this paper; a new protocol named "prediction S-MAC protocol" is proposed to reduce the power consumption of the wireless sensor nodes and to improve their performance compared to the previous S-MAC protocols....
