Hasan A. Yahya , a writer from Palestine

In this article we describe the situation in research, science  and technology. Arab countries have some of the lowest levels of research funding in the world. R&D [research and development] expenditure as a percentage of GDP was a mere 0.4 for the Arab world in 1996, compared to 1.26 in 1995 for Cuba, 2.35 in 1994 for Israel, and 2.9 for Japan.

Science and technology output is quantifiable and measurable in terms of the number of scientific papers per unit of population. The average output of the Arab world per million inhabitants is roughly 2 per cent of that of an industrialized country. While Arab scientific output more than doubled from 11 papers per million in 1985 to 26 papers per million in 1995, China’s output increased eleven-fold from one paper per million inhabitants in 1981 to 11 papers per million in 1995. The Republic of Korea increased its output from 6 to 144 papers per million inhabitants over the same period. India’s output, by contrast, barely changed over the period 1981-1995: its output increased from 17 publications per million inhabitants in 1981 to 19 per million in 1995.

In 1981, China was producing half the output of the Arab world; by 1987, its output had equaled that of Arab countries; it now produces double their output. In 1981, the Republic of Korea was producing 10 percent of the output of the Arab world; in 1995, it almost equaled its output. On a per capita basis, the output of the Arab world is within the range of the top R&D-producing group in the developing world: Brazil, China, and India.

Technological development is rather weak in the Arab countries. This is evidenced by the relative position of Arab countries on the UNDP technology achievement index (TAI), which referred to the late 1990s. The TAI could be calculated for only five Arab countries: Algeria, Egypt, Sudan, Syria, and Tunisia—another indication of the poverty of data on knowledge acquisition in Arab countries.

None of these were classified as “leaders,” a category that included countries such as Israel and the Republic of Korea. Sudan was classified as “marginalized,” while the other four Arab countries were classified as “dynamic adopters,” in the same category as Brazil.

In spite of significant internal variability and compared to leaders in the world, Arab countries in general clearly lag behind in technology creation (measured by patents granted to residents) and diffusion of recent innovations (measured by the share of high- and medium-technology exports in total goods exports). On the other hand, Arab countries fared relatively better on diffusion of old innovations (measured by telephone lines relative to population).

Benefiting from research and technological output depends critically on a robust system of national and international linkages among practitioners. Brazil, China, and the Republic of Korea have established system linkages and policies in order to benefit from their national knowledge base. They have adopted technology policies that have enabled them to sustain a high rate of growth combined with a high rate of technology acquisition.

By contrast, the connectivity of Arab scientists within the Arab world is poor at the national and regional levels. The connectivity of individual Arab scientists with international science is better simply because international relations in science provide the means for cooperation. Many of the significant technology-rich industries in the Arab world have been parachuted in as “black boxes” via international consulting and engineering development organizations (CEDOs). However, these installations are not linked to local or regional CEDOs and R&D organizations. Until such connectivity is established, such installations cannot contribute to the scientific and technological development of the Arab world.

During the past 30 years, there has been a massive transformation of industrial firms in OECD countries; outsourcing and subcontracting have contributed to breaking down the vertically integrated firm. Integration has instead taken the form of joining a global web of technological expertise; meanwhile, out-sourcing has promoted the transfer of technology to Asian and Latin American subcontractors along with the transfer of employment from high-cost to low-cost countries. A number of Asian countries in particular have successfully secured a considerable share of subcontracting from major transnational corporations. This contributed to the formation of the celebrated Asian Tigers and others, such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. Few Arab countries have benefited from the globalization of outsourcing.

Hasan A. Yahya, a professor of Educational Administration

The Arab countries were approached for research on various topics in the last half century, for increasing global importance and national independence. In other words, the Arab world was ignored for a long time while it was a part of the Ottoman Empire. After the WWI and WWII, the position of the Arab countries became more important in the world stage, especially with the promotion and contracts of Oil agreements. Such a product divided the Arab countries into two sharp division, one division is labor rich countries, and the other is oil-rich countries.

All people, regardless of age or gender deserve a good public education. There are no exceptions to this rule (assuming normality) and any attempt to make excuses is unacceptable. Arab countries, however, are accused of tradition against education especially the female, which is untrue. Unfortunately, reporters and rush researchers were interested in certain strange quotes with no elaboration. They focus on certain problems, which may lead readers toa gloomy picture. However, there were always bright success stories in many of these countries. I will cover some successful stories in the coming articles.

Some articles may be correct in many aspects, others may be misleading to generalize issues and to say there is a problem with female education in the entire Arab world. Therefore, Arabs are misunderstood when it comes to reporting from outside, for example, on education, we may read this statement about Arab (Muslim) parents quoted : “When we asked parents why they did not allow their girls to school, they would say “because it’s wrong, it’s irreligious – they should stay home.”

This implies uneducated studies, where an interviewer took this out of context. Another topic  is female circumcision which is partly found in some Arab countries. In fact, Islam encourages education for females as well as males. And more than 90%  of Arab countries do not practice female circumcision. Many of these countries issued laws forbidding that cultural habit in some districts.  Those who release such phrases are unfamiliar with Islam themselves. On the contrary, it is unreligious to keep females from being educated. As long as it is within a decent environment, education is highly encouraged. Unfortunately, the Western media emphasizes undermining the Muslim world, forgetting the great Muslim and Arab history.

The other issue is the quote in some reports “Literacy rates of women in the Arab world, according to the latest report of UNDP, are around 55 percent.” Forgetting what are the literacy rates of men in the Arab world? To compare education enrollment would be better to compare the literacy rates between genders to present a more accurate picture of the problems involving education in the Arab world. In many studies on education in the  Middle East, we are aware of issues involving equality for women in the Arab world and Middle East and believe there are obstacles to overcome, other issues may be needed to be included in such studies, to be explored more that are relevant to the lack of education in the Arab world – such as sociological issues concerning independence, development, and  poverty in some countries.

Most Mysterious Creatures Ever Caught On Camera YOU WILL not believe

video link:https://youtu.be/x6qXprJ_POs
The “Surgeon’s Photograph” purported to be the first photo of a “head and neck.” Dr. Wilson claimed he was looking at the loch when he saw the monster, so grabbed his camera and snapped five photos. After the film was developed, only two exposures were clear. The first photo (the more publicised one) shows what was claimed to be a small head and back. The second one, a blurry image, attracted little publicity because it was difficult to interpret what was depicted. The image was revealed as a fake in The Sunday Telegraph dated 7 December 1975. Supposedly taken by Robert Kenneth Wilson, a London gynaecologist, it was published i
