جامعة الملك محمد بن فهد بين أفضل الجامعات المرموقة في العالم العربي

الخُبر، المملكة العربية السعودية، 5/أغسطس/2021/ PRNewswire/ احتلت جامعة الأمير محمد بن فهد المرتبة الرابعة من بين 157 جامعة في العالم العربي في قائمة تضم أفضل مؤسسات التعليم العالي، وطبقًا لتصنيف الجامعات العالمي الصادرعن مجلة تايمز للتعليم العالي للعام 2021، جاءت خمس جامعات سعودية بين أفضل عشر جامعات عربية للعام 2021، ويعتمد التصنيف على 13 مؤشر لمعايرة الأداء بدقة، بحيث تقيم كلٍ منها الأداء في أربعة جوانب: التدريس، البحث، المعرفة والتحول، والرؤية الدولية.

Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University amongst the Top prestigious Universities in the Arab World

مهدت جامعة الأمير محمد بن فهد طريقها بنجاح لاحتلال هذا التصنيف استنادًا إلى الجهود المضنية المبذولة من هيئة التدريس وفريق العمل بالجامعة. وبالرغم من اعتبار عام 2020 عامًا مليئًا بالتحديات فلم تتوقف الجامعة من مواصلة جهودها واحتلال تصنيف متقدم بين المؤسسات المرموقة في العالم العربي،

وتهدف جامعة الأمير محمد بن فهد إلى توفيق هدفها  مع رؤية المملكة 2030  لخلق مجتمع نابض بالحياة، فضلًا عن تمكين الجيل التالي ليصبح من دعاة التغيير. تُوفر الجامعة أيضًا منشآت جامعية على طراز فني، مثل الفصول المتقدمة، والأجهزة المعملية  المتطورة للتركيز الشديد على البحث العلمي، وقد وسعت جامعة الأمير محمد بن فهد عملياتها بشأن غرس الأفكار الريادية في الخريجين الشباب وذلك بإنشاء مركز الأمير تركي للإبداع وريادة الأعمال. أنشئت أيضًا جامعة الأمير محمد بن فهد مركزًا للأمن السيبراني، ومركزًا للذكاء الاصطناعي، إلى جانب معمل روبوتات متطور، وترأس منظمة اليونيسكو العالمية دراسات بشأن التحول بين الأجيال، كما تُتعمل الجامعة باستمرار على تحديث عروضها المقدمة بإضافة برامج جديدة : كلية الطب والعلوم الصحية والمستشفى التعليمي.

PMU Logo

تهدف المملكة بشكل أساسي إلى تمكين الشباب وإعداد جيل من المهنيين والباحثين يساهم في الفرص غير المحدودة في الاقتصاد السعودي الناشئ، وقد لعب الوباء دورًا مؤثرًا للغاية في تحويل التعليم المادي إلى فصول افتراضية. بالرغم من ذلك، لم يساعد هذا الأمر طلاب جامعة الأمير محمد في مجرد التغلب على التحديات عبر الإنترنت ولكنه أيضًا أجبر العديد من أعضاء هيئة التدريس على تصميم استراتيجيات جديدة عن طريق الحلقات الدراسية الافتراضية عبر الإنترنت.

يُقدم تصنيف مجلة تايمز للتعليم العالي لهذا العام رؤية قيمة بشأن تغيير ميزان القوة في التعليم العالي العالمي، وإبراز هذه الجهود في العالم العربي،

وقال الدكتور عيسى الأنصاري (رئيس جامعة الأمير محمد بن فهد) “نهدف إلى تقديم متعلمين شغوفين بالمعرفة مدى الحياة، وتبذل جامعة الأمير محمد بن فهد كل ما بوسعها لربط أهدافها برؤية المملكة 2030، وقد لمسنا تحقيق نتيجة مذهلة في وقت قصير”. يستمر التحدي في الحفاظ على هذه التصنيفات رفيعة المستوى واستمرار التقدم نحو رؤية عالمية متزايدة.

Czinger 21C smashes lap record at WeatherTech Laguna Seca Raceway

Los Angeles-based Czinger Vehicles brings the Laguna Seca record back to America ahead of Monterey Car Week

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Czinger, the trailblazing company that uses revolutionary design and manufacturing technologies to build state-of-the-art, homologated high-performance vehicles, has set a new lap record at WeatherTech Laguna Seca Raceway, smashing the old record by an astonishing two seconds!

On July 21 at 7:43pm PT, the Czinger 21C Hypercar, with driver Joel Miller behind the wheel, set the record in a multi-GPS verified time of 1:25:44.  The previous track record was held by the McLaren Senna, with driver Randy Pobst setting a time of 1:27.62.

Czinger 21 at Laguna Seca: Gone in 85 Seconds

Under ideal conditions – the weather was clear, with a wind direction of about nine mph NW and an air temperature of 60 degrees – the Czinger vehicle also broke the previous record on two other laps, with times of 1:27:4 and 1:26:6.

The car, which ran on fully road legal Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2R tires, was designed, manufactured and assembled in Los Angeles.

“As a blue-collar kid growing up in Cleveland, Ohio, I used to lie awake at night thinking about my racing hero, Jim Hall, his latest innovations, the technology-packed Chaparral cars his team built, and racing on the legendary Laguna Seca Raceway,” said Kevin Czinger, the Founder and CEO of Czinger Vehicles and of Divergent 3D, the company that is revolutionizing the car manufacturing industry.  “The era and the AI-based and sustainability-focused technologies available are different but the animating spirit remains the same – living the American Dream at speed.”

Czinger will showcase the record-setting 21C at the company’s private Pebble Beach home during Monterey Car Week, August 12-16th.

Czinger Vehicles

“It goes without saying that we are delighted with the performance of the car,” said Ewan Baldry, Chief Engineer at Czinger. “To be able to achieve this lap time with a car that is going into homologated production is the result of some incredibly hard work from the Czinger team and in particular our ability to exploit the cutting-edge technology that we have access to through our close association with Divergent. The most exciting part is that we know we have more performance to come!”

In fact, the lap record represents just the first in a planned string of future performance record attempts, he noted.

“Building a new car is not easy and this group built one fast car,” said Joel Miller. “I can only thank them for having me as the driver during the development process and record run. The revolutionary technology used to build the car complements the speed that it has. And it has a sports car soul when driving. You can feel what the car is doing in the steering wheel. What the powertrain is capable of doing is absolutely mind blowing at maximum power. When setting the record at Laguna Seca, it was not by a little bit but a massive amount!”

About the Czinger 21C

The Czinger 21C, the first model in a series of fully homologated, exclusive performance vehicles – production will be limited to 80 cars – was created in part using additive manufacturing technologies. Each component manufactured using this technology is computationally engineered using AI, optimized for weight and performance, and is beautifully finished by hand.  Czinger’s proprietary manufacturing technologies, in-house developed powertrain, and iconic design will guide its future family of vehicles and enables the design and engineering team to unlock performance and styling not before seen in the automotive industry.

Of special significance, the 21C V8 is designed to use a range of fuels, including carbon recycled methanol and other e-fuels, so it can be run as a zero-emission vehicle.

This new hypercar showcases significant updates since its first public introduction in March 2020, including an updated width of 2050 mm. With 1250 hp and a dry weight under 1240 kg, the 21C achieves a true 1:1 power-to-weight ratio.  It also features all-wheel drive with a strong hybrid powertrain that includes the world’s most power dense production IC engine as its foundation.  It also features two high output electric motors, each powering a front wheel with torque vectoring, and an ultra-light, sequential seven-speed automated manual transmission gearbox. The total strong hybrid system delivers a peak output of 1250hp (1233bhp).

Putting the driver and passenger in the center position for ultimate weight distribution, aero and driver engagement, the car has a top speed up to 281 mph in optional low drag vmax configuration.  Its quarter mile time is 8.1 seconds, and it goes 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 kph) in 1.9 seconds; 0 to 186 mph (300 kph) in 8.5 seconds and 0 to 248 mph (400 kph) in 21.3 seconds.  It has a more than 3:1 Lift / Drag Ratio with 615 kg downforce at 100mph and 2,500 kg at 200mph (high downforce configuration).

Note to Editors:

Czinger (pronounced “zinger” with a silent c) is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. Founded in 2019 and named after its Founder and CEO, Kevin Czinger, the trailblazing performance brand is built around a core ethos of using revolutionary technology to create vehicles that have dominating performance and iconic design.

‫”أحجار بيروت”: تيريتوري تطلق حملة تبرعات عبر وسائل الإعلام إحياءً لذكرى انفجار بيروت

تسعى تيريتوري من خلال حملتها لجمع التبرعات إلى زيادة الوعي بشأن الوضع في بيروت عبر قنوات الوسائط المتعددة في ألمانيا وأوروبا وجميع أنحاء العالم.

بالتعاون مع مؤسسة Stern e.V.، تجمع الحملة تبرعات نيابةً عن المنظمة اللبنانية غير الحكومية بيت البركة

يرتكز هذا المشروع ارتكازًا أساسيًا على كتاب أحجار بيروت الذي يتناول الحديث عن مصير المتضررين وعن المشهد الحضري الفريد لبيروت وثقافتها.

يأتي الكتاب مطبوعًا على ورق حجري مصنوع من أنقاض منازل بيروت التي لحقها الدمار في أغسطس 2020.

يقتصر الإصدار على 1500 نسخة. يمكن طلب الكتاب مسبقًا اعتبارًا من 4 أغسطس 2021، وسيتم نشره في نوفمبر 2021.

هامبورغ، ألمانيا، 5 أغسطس 2021 /PRNewswire/ –في الرابع من أغسطس 2020، هز انفجار هائل وسط مدينة بيروت؛ حيث انفجر نحو 2700 طن من نترات الامونيوم في ميناء العاصمة اللبنانية، مما أودى بحياة 190 شخصًا، وأسفر عن إصابة ما يزيد عن 6500. كما لحق بحوالي 800 مبنى أضرار جسيمة، وخسائر مادية تجاوزت قيمتها 4 مليار يورو. وبالرغم من توثيق وقوع هذا الحادث في الوقت الفعلي عبر الشبكات الاجتماعية، ولكن سرعان ما تضاءل الاهتمام العالمي. لماذا تراجع الاهتمام الإعلامي بتلك السرعة؟ يعود السبب وراء ذلك إلى أن كلا من الجائحة والانتخابات الرئاسية الأمريكية قد تصدرت عناوين الأخبار في عام 2020، وهو عام مختلف عن غيره.

ترغب شركة تيريتوري (TERRITORY)، بصفتها وكالة معنية بمحتوى العلامات التجارية، في تقديم بيانًا قويًا بالتعاون مع دار النشر Gruner + Jahr سعيًا للحفاظ على إحياء هذه الذكرى. ومن ثم، أُطلقت حملة أحجار بيروت (Stones of Beirut) عبر وسائل الإعلام بهدف زيادة الوعي واسترعاء انتباه وسائل الإعلام وقادة الرأي والمواطنين إلى العواقب الوخيمة التي خلفّتها كارثة 4 أغسطس 2020.

يحوي صميم هذا المشروع كتابًا من 250 صفحة يحمل نفس الاسم، ويروي هذا الكتاب قصصًا مؤثرة لمجموعة محددة من الأشخاص والمباني المتضررين بموقع الانفجار في مرفأ العاصمة. وقد أعدَّ هذا الكتاب صحفيون مشهورون وهم، ثور شرودر (Thore Schröder – مراسل أجنبي، أعدَّ النص)، و فانيسا شليزييه و تيريزا بروير (Vanessa Schlesier و Theresa Breuer – مراسلتان أجنبيتان، صمّمتا الصور المتحركة)، وميكو هيرمان (Meiko Herrmann– مصور). تعكس كل قصة وجهًا مختلفًا من المدينة الرائعة، التي كانت تتصدى لأزمات سياسية واقتصادية. تجعل حالة الطوارئ الراهنة التي تعصف ببيروت مشروع أحجار بيروت ذا أهمية خاصة. تتوفر جميع القصص أيضًا عبر مركز المحتوى على وقناة وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي @stonesofbeirut.

ذكرت ساندرا هارزر كوكس (Sandra Harzer-Kux)، المتحدثة الرسمية لإدارة وكالة تيريتوري: “تُحْسِن تيريتوري استغلال شبكتها للمساعدة في وضع جدول الأعمال وتوفير المعونة والدعم الذين تشتد الحاجة إليهما في بيروت من خلال بذل ما بوسعنا، ويتمثل ذلك في: إنشاء محتوى ذي صلة وزيادة الوعي مستعينين بقنوات واتصالات متعددة تصل إلى الأشخاص أينما كانوا”.

يكمن ما يميز هذا الكتاب في طباعته على ورق حجري. فقد اُستخدِم الحجر الجيري بدلاً من السليلوز لصنع هذا الورق المميزة. فعادة ما تستخدم الشركة المنتجة ستون بيبر (Stonepaper) الجير المستخرج من المحاجر لصناعة هذا الورق، ولكنها اعتمدت في هذا التعاون مع تيريتوري على المواد المستخرجة من المنازل التي أصابها الدمار في بيروت؛ حيث شُحِن حوالي نصف طن من الركام من لبنان إلى فناء المطبعة الألمانية. وهكذا، تحتوي كل صفحة من صفحات كتاب أحجار بيروت على قطعة من المدينة.

صرحت مارليس بايها (Marlies Bayha)، المديرة التنفيذية لوكالة تيريتوري والقيادة الرئيسية للمشروع “تخدم حملة محتوى الكتاب والوسائط المتعددة أغراضًا متعددة تتمثل في: التنقيب بالمعنى الحرفي للكلمة عن الأصول الثقافية لمدينة بيروت من تحت الأنقاض، وإذكاء الوعي، والحصول على بعض المساعدات التي تمس حاجة شعب بيروت إليها”.

وأضاف أدريان بيكشوس (Adrian Pickshaus)، المدير الإبداعي التنفيذي لدى وكالة تيريتوري ورئيس تحرير المشروع: “نتواصل في تيريتوري عادةً من أجل العلامات التجارية، ولكن عندما يتعلق الأمر بكتاب أحجار بيروت، يبدو الوضع مختلفًا قليلاً؛ حيث نتحدث ونبث في سبيل خدمة الإنسانية، وعندما نسرد أحداثًا حقيقية شهدتها المدينة المُثخنة بالجراح، ونستعين على ذلك بأدوات الصحافة النوعية، فإننا نُسهم بذلك في زيادة الوعي وجمع الأموال للسكان المحليين”.

سيتوفر كتاب أحجار بيروت في نوفمبر 2021 ويمكن طلبه مسبقًا ابتداءً من 4 أغسطس 2021 باللغتين الألمانية والإنجليزية. ونظرًا لطريقة طباعته المميزة، فسيتم نشره في إصدار محدود يبلغ عدده 1500 نسخة. وستذهب عائدات بيع الكتاب، وكذلك جميع التبرعات الأخرى، إلى منظمة الإغاثة ومنظمة بيت البركة غير الحكومية في بيروت.

لا يمثل الكتاب سوى بداية حملة أوسع نطاقًا عبر وسائل الإعلام. وحيث يتمثل هدفنا في الوصول إلى أكبر عدد ممكن من الأشخاص وجمع التبرعات، يتوفر المحتوى أيضًا عبر مركز المحتوى،وقناة وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي @stonesofbeirut،ومحتوى الفيديو، وإعلانات خارج المنزل، والتسويق المؤثر، والعلاقات العامة. لقد طُوِّرت الحملة تطويرًا شاملًا بفضل مجموعة كاملة من المهارات التي يحظى بها جميع أعضاء فرق وكالة تيريتوري.

META Announces Agreement to Acquire Nanotech Security Corp. for C$90.8 Million

Transformational Deal to Accelerate Growth, Scale and Commercialization of Metamaterials

HALIFAX, NS / ACCESSWIRE / August 5, 2021 / Meta Materials Inc. (the “Company” or “META®“) (NASDAQ:MMAT) a developer of high-performance functional materials and nanocomposites, today announced the signing of a definitive agreement for META to indirectly acquire Nanotech Security Corp. (“Nanotech”) (TSXV:NTS)(OTCQX:NTSFF), a leader in the development of secure and visually memorable nano-optic security features that provide anti-counterfeiting solutions used in the government and banknote and brand protection markets, in an all-cash transaction at C$1.25 per Nanotech common share, for a total value of approximately C$90.8 million.

The addition of Nanotech’s highly experienced manufacturing group, its nanophotonics R&D teams and its well-established origination and conversion capabilities is expected to significantly expand and accelerate META’s design-to-production roadmap and extend its leadership position in commercializing metamaterials. Nanotech brings state of the art electron beam lithography (EBL), high-volume, roll-to-roll nanoimprint lithography (NIL) and nano-coating production equipment, with current capacity exceeding 7 million square meters per year, at significantly lower production costs compared to semiconductor processes.

In-house EBL capabilities are expected to significantly increase META’s capacity for new customer engagements and shorten material selection programs. META’s proprietary roll-to-roll volume holographic technology, as well as its Rolling Mask Lithography (RML®) and related design know-how and intellectual property, offer additional proprietary security applications to help expand Nanotech’s leadership position in high-volume highly customizable security films.

“META’s M&A strategy is focused on building scale and reducing production costs, enhancing our metamaterials manufacturing capabilities, and extending our market reach into new applications and industries,” said Ram Ramkumar, Chairman of META. “We believe the addition of Nanotech’s ultra-precision, high-volume production capabilities should place META in a strong leadership position in commercializing metamaterials at scale.”

“Nanotech is a strategic acquisition for META. It will add tested and cost-competitive production technology along with new products and customers to our portfolio. Nanotech also adds complementary skillsets which can support META’s markets, accelerating our commercialization plans in verticals such as solar energy, 5G and other antennas, battery and fuel cells, and carbon capture,” said George Palikaras, META’s President and CEO. “META plans to support expansion of Nanotech’s Thurso, Quebec facility, approximately doubling its production capacity to 15 million square meters over the next 1-2 years, while META’s new 68,000 square foot facility in Nova Scotia will support large OEM licensing opportunities, manufacturing training and product application development at pilot scale. Combined with our planned expansion in Nova Scotia, the Nanotech acquisition is expected to position META as one of the leaders in high-volume, low-cost production of optical metamaterials in the world.”

In the government and banknote market, Nanotech has supplied security features used in 30+ banknote denominations. In 2017, Nanotech won a multi-year C$30 million development contract with a confidential top-10 central bank to design a unique, nano-optic security feature for a future banknote and it is in the process of seeking to secure a next phase contract later this year.

“META’s technology platform offers significant benefits to both companies. META’s strong technical capabilities and financial resources can enable Nanotech to accelerate its growth plans and Nanotech’s high-volume, roll-to-roll production capabilities can accelerate META’s go-to-market strategy in several vertical markets,” said Troy Bullock, Nanotech’s President and CEO. “Nanotech’s entire team will be joining META with Nanotech’s management taking on key leadership positions, and I am excited to be continuing with META in an advisory capacity. Through META, we will have access to the technologies and financial resources to advance our strategic goals and accelerate our government contract, as well as expanding into functional thin films and metamaterial applications for large markets beyond banknotes and brand protection.”

Nanotech Technology and Assets

Nanotech develops products and technology that deliver some of the most sophisticated overt, covert, and forensic security features for brand protection and banknote markets. Its KolourOptic® technology platform is different than any other technology currently on the market, producing security features which are thinner, offering multiple colors, depth, and movement, without using ink. For example, a 1-inch by 1-inch area typically features approximately 5 billion nanostructures. Nanotech’s technology relies on what scientists call “plasmonic” or “nanophotonic” structural light trapping schemes, similar to those found naturally in butterfly-wing nanostructures. This allows Nanotech to provide its customers with customized security features that are nearly impossible to replicate.

Nanotech brings more than 75 years collective nanotechnology research and production experience with over C$19M invested in nanotechnology related IP. It has 47 issued patents, 22 patents pending, and has delivered over 7 billion security features to customers around the world. In Thurso, Quebec, Nanotech owns a state-of-the-art production facility situated on 11 acres of land, with a 105,000 square foot building, which includes an approximately 35,000 square foot, high-security production facility built to European Central Bank standards, with 15,000 square feet of space planned for immediate production expansion and the remaining 55,000 square feet for future expansion. Nanotech had cash and equivalents of approximately C$8.9 million and no debt as of June 30, 2021.

Transaction Summary

The following is a summary of the proposed transaction terms as contemplated in the definitive agreement.

The transaction is structured as a plan of arrangement under the laws of the province of British Columbia.
