The descriptive method (the relational method) was used to suit the objectives of the research. 40 student, chosen randomly, three research tools were prepared, namely, the Habits of Mind Scale composed of (28) items, and an achievement test consisting of (20) items of the type of objective questions (multiple choice) as well as a test on creative intelligence that was composed of ( 18) paragraph, verifying the validity and reliability of the research tools, was applied to the research tools on the core sample in the first semester of the year 2020-2021. The results were shown using the Pearson correlation coefficient and the T-test for one sample for:</p> <p>1- The existence of statistically significant differences between the average of students ’scores and the hypothetical average in the habits of mind test, in favor of the hypothetical average, which gave an indication of the weak students’ possession of habits of mind.</p> <p>2- The existence of statistically significant differences between the average grades of students and the hypothetical average in the achievement test, in favor of the average score of students, and the results indicated the good achievement of the students.</p> <p>3- The existence of statistically significant differences between the average score of students and the hypothetical average in the creative intelligence test, and in favor of the average scores of students on the test, which gives an indication of students' possession of creative intelligence.</p> <p>4- There is a strong positive correlation between the habits of the mind, academic achievement and creative mathematical intelligence among the scientific (biological) fifth-grade students.</p> <p>In light of the results and conclusions, the researcher recommended a set of recommendations and proposals.</p> 2021-12-22T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 The Symbolic Design of Public Information: The Role of Application in the Construction of Campus Culture 2021-12-22T06:21:57+00:00 Tao Xin, Jin Zhuo* s@s.c <p>Symbol is a medium for expressing and disseminating human thoughts, as well as an intermediary and bridge between the material world and the spiritual world. In the era of rapid development and complex urban life, the symbols of public information plays an important role in promoting communication and mutual understanding between people in different cultures and languages. As the main disseminator of public information, the symbolic design of public information is an important factor in achieving this function. Therefore, to realize the effectiveness of information dissemination, scientific thinking and the methods of systematic design are needed. Strengthening the symbolic design of public information in the construction of campus culture can educate students from multiple aspects and angles, and increase the penetration and attractiveness of ideological and political education. This article explains the meaning and characteristics of symbol and symbolic design. It is necessary to introduce the symbolic design of public information into the construction of campus culture to provide new research perspectives and theoretical resources for the construction of campus culture.</p> 2021-12-22T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Activating the role of Saudi universities in the renaissance and development of interdisciplinary scientific research between various health sciences and others using artificial intelligence 2021-12-22T06:24:49+00:00 Aida Albasalah, Samar Alshawwa* , Razan Alarnous s@s.m <p>Artificial Intelligence “AI” has become a vital area of research in all fields in the 21st century: science, engineering, education, business, medicine, accounting, marketing, finance, economics, law, stock market, among others. The array of artificial intelligence has increased extremely since the intelligence of machines with machine learning abilities has produced immense impacts on governments, society and business. AI also influences the larger developments in worldwide sustainability. The primary aim of the present study is to evaluate the obstacles to activating artificial intelligence and exploitation of information revolution in scientific research in the fields of health sciences and humanities, the objectives of scientific research using artificial intelligence in universities, the mechanisms for activating scientific research for students in the universities by using the artificial intelligence, the obstacles to activating the role of scientific research directed to serve health and human sciences using technology using technology and artificial intelligence as well as the correlation between these variables. A simple random sampling technique was utilized for this study. A structured questionnaire was administered to individuals associated with Universities in Saudi Arabia. The data sample consisted of 257 respondents. The collected data was statistically analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 20. The study showed that the objectives of scientific research using artificial intelligence in universities are a significant positive predictor of obstacles to activating artificial intelligence and exploiting the information revolution in the health and human scientific research in Saudi universities. The study also revealed that there is statistical significant (p &lt; 0.05) correlation between each of the variables</p> 2021-12-22T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Further Improvement of the Institutional Framework to Identify Job Positions for Civil Servants in State Administrative Agencies in Vietnam 2022-01-17T09:36:03+00:00 Nguyen Binh An, Tran Thi Hai Yen s@s.c <p>This research analyzes the concept of job positions for civil servants in state administrative agencies.

Alsalehi, Munira Muhammad Al-Murab* & Samar Alshawwa* s@s.c <p>The development of language is usually impaired among individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). A lack of corresponding language development with age is an early indication that a child might be autistic. Some individuals with severe ASD never know how to speak throughout their life. More often than not, when children living with autism begin to speak, their speech is extremely limited in terms of syntax and vocabulary, and also has unusual intonation and pitch. The purpose of this study is to find out the extent to which children with ASD accept reading and writing in their mother tongue and in a second language; to ascertain the difficulty faced by autistic children face in communicating and other social interaction, and the challenges their parents/caregivers have to go through in taking care of them; and recommend possible solutions to reducing the difficulties that both children with autism and their parents face. The data which comprised report from 180 parents of children with autism were retrieved from the Shifae database. The study revealed a low acceptance of children with autism to accept writing (51.7%) and reading (60.0%) in their mother tongue; and a very low extent of acceptance to reading (75.0%) and writing (81.7%) in a second language. It also revealed a difference between an autistic child's cognitive abilities, mental and motor abilities compared to other children with normal development (p &gt; 0.05). The creation of avenues to help mothers/caregivers properly take care and manage children with autism was recommended.</p> <p><strong>References</strong></p> <ol> <li>Adams, C. (2015).
