Water Consumption of Agricultural Crops In Locality Of Al-Husseiniya Land its Effect In Agricultural Production

journal of kerbala university, 2017, Volume 13, Issue 4, Pages 1-16

The research aims to assess the water needs of crops gardening in Husseiniya land within the province of Karbala, as the province from provices of agricultural economy and horticulture in it make up a large proportion of agricultural investments as an area of cultivated land of gardening agricultural season in 2014 about (54 229) and comprising (46 %) of the total cultivated land of the season with the (117,476) acres.
And the importance of water economy (irrigation water) for planting the largest area of arable land, the authors taking the irrigation water for the crop gardening as a target for the research, and analysis of the factors that explain variation of these needs in the study area and then to know the water needs in order to get the evaporation / possible transpiration and find out climatic water balance of the study area in order to know the size of the deficit and surplus water in the region.
In order to estimate the irrigation water intake for the crop climate, it has depend the formula (Pliny - Krydl) to calculate the amount of evaporation - transpiration because it is the most accurate equation in estimation water consumption as well as the suitability for climatic characteristics prevailing in Iraq and not dependon by multiple and overlapping climatic elements, as it took from the monthly temperatures average and the percentage of the number of daylight hours basically for estimating the amount of water consumption of agricultural crops

The grammatical and semantic functions of the letters of traction and tying at al-Mouradi in his book The Genocide in the Meanings

journal of kerbala university, 2017, Volume 13, Issue 4, Pages 17-30

The grammatical study has symbolic functions, because the understanding of significance is linked to the laws of grammar. It is the main focus of linguistic analysis, which has turned the attention of linguists from focusing on the structure of language to the translation of the semantic concept emanating from these structures. Within the framework of the language system. Functional significance is to interpret the relationships of the main components of the sentence as functions performed by each component according to the contextual structure.
The study confirmed that the Arabic language is an integrated language, in terms of its meanings, words and structures. It is a language whose elements are intertwined and united in a multi-faceted organic unit. It is possible only through a process of linking, and the dimensions of confusion in the reader. This function is achieved by letters between two or two sentences, and these characters fall within the structures and gain more accurate meanings through the context.
Al-Muradi said that these letters have a fundamental role in the linking process, whether that is between a name and a name or a noun and an act.

The voice of the female in the novel (Zainab, Mary and Yasmin) of the Iraqi novelist (Maysaloun Hadi) (*) is the voice of Iraqi women in times of war and destruction, a high voice embodied by the characters of the female novel, especially her heroine (Yasmin) in an attempt to awaken society and alert him in the direction The great injustice suffered by women, specifically - Iraqi women - in light of the contradictions and disadvantages of this society.
And the female voice in the novel reveals - remarkably - the world of women in all its dimensions, which describes the world of women outside, and all that surrounds them, and their relationship with the opposite sex (man), and the nature of that relationship, at the same time do not forget to stand At the borders of its internal world and the pain and suffering it entails because of external reality, which imposes restrictions that go beyond the framework of this reality to touch the very essence of itself.

Features of existential thought In the poetical works (MA WARAA HANJARA ALMOGHANI) For the poet Jassim Al-Sahiih

journal of kerbala university, 2017, Volume 13, Issue 4, Pages 107-124

The fragmentation and absence of identity and extremism that appears to be part of the fabric of the contemporary world, and especially its composition, especially in Saudi Arabia, as a present - of human existence - is torn apart by the stark contrasts that destroy its rhythm and destroy its image as a clear reflection of the meanings of tampering, To cast a shadow over the spirit of the poet and his text, so as to distort the relationship of Anna herself, as well as to distort the relationship with the other around, ie make them an expression of the tendency of absence not Power of attendance.
This was the title of the poet's poem (beyond the throat of the singer), in which he expressed the extent of his confusion and concerns. The research came in the introduction and the preparation of several axes and ended with a conclusion that outlined what was said.

Food insecurity:the causes and Possible Responses [The African Continent Model.

journal of kerbala university, 2017, Volume 13, Issue 4, Pages 136-151

The aim of this study is to shed some light on the food security concept and the main reasons for its lack in the various country in the worldand, particularly developing countries. The issue of food insecurity has led to be nearly 795 million people whose suffer from malnutrition at a global level based to the estimates of "the state of food insecurity in the world 2015" according to the Food and Agriculture Organization [FAO] of the United Nations, Even though this large figure is at the same time refer to a decline near to 216 million people fewer than the percentage in which was at 1990-1992.
The rise of food prices globally, natural disasters, and severe climatic events and global economic issues are all reinforced the old dilemma of how to ensure access to food for all individuals all over the world, to enable everyone in the world to live an active and healthy life.
While improvements in global food production, and health are allowed human communities to flourish through the twentieth century by a significant increase in the size of the world's population and the average age of individuals and also reduce infant and child mortality, However, malnutrition remained as a result of food insecurity which have a daily affects on the lives of hundreds of millions of people.
A significant number of experts and specialists also believe that the food security problem is also associated with the number of the world's population which is expected to rise to be 9 billion people by 2050, and the provision of adequate food is a global concern, this concern is exacerbated by factors such as climate change and pressure in order to expand the agricultural production in the forest.

Programmed cell death-1 (PDCD1) gene is a negative regulator of T-cell to maintain peripheral tolerance and is a key molecule in the development of autoimmune diseases. Although gene polymorphism in PDCD1 was reported to be associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), replication studies later on showed conflicting results. This study aimed to determine whether SNP PD1.1 in PDCD1 gene is associated with susceptibility for RA. Methods: Clinical diagnosis of the RA patients was confirmed by the Rheumatology Center of Al Sadder Medical Teaching Hospital in Al-Najaf Al-Ashraf city. Genomic DNA was extracted from the whole blood samples using commercial kit (FavorPrep™ Blood Genomic DNA Extraction Mini Kit). Programmed cell death-1 (PD1.1 G/A SNP) genotyping was done using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method to 60 RA patients and 70 non-autoimmune control group. The genotype and allele frequencies of these SNP were analyzed by statistical tests. Results: There were no significant differences in alleles and genotypes of PD1.1 SNP in PDCD-1 gene between RA cases and control group. Conclusions: PD-1.1 polymorphism in the PDCD1 gene was not associated neither with susceptibility for RA nor with clinical course in rheumatoid arthritis patients (at least in an Iraqi population particularly in AL-Najaf city).

journal of kerbala university, 2017, Volume 13, Issue 4, Pages 32-41

In the twentieth century at different times and in different places Communication technologies expanded. In the first the telephone invented as a wired technology and then as a wireless technology. In the later of the century computer communication has development. we can define the routing protocols as set of rules by which routers dynamically share their routing information.
Secured ad hoc routing protocols present a challenge, due to inherent characteristics of distributed cooperation, constrained capabilities of the nodes, open medium and dynamic topology. Due to such characteristics, these networks are highly susceptible to malicious attacks that may arise from several causes; non-deliberately when a node is damaged or deliberately when a node may need to save its resources, consume other node's resources, or isolate legitimate nodes from using the network. Most of the current ad hoc routing protocols are disrupted by malicious attacks. The most popular ad hoc routing protocol is the Dynamic Source Routing protocol(DSR) which is protocol finds the route when required dynamically and is on-demand source routing protocol. The DSR protocol contains two phases in its routing structure: route detection and route maintenance. To ensure the correct operations of DSR, provide security against malicious attacks is very important. This paper proposes a secured DSR; SecDSR which is protocol point -to- point certification of routing packets shared key between the two parties and using a Message Authentication Code (MAC) based on Ariadne protocol which relies on symmetric cryptography that is able to authenticate the source who initiated route discovery process to provide authentication. The tools and method that which used is it can used in conjunction with different mechanisms, one of which is TESLA (Timed Efficient Stream Loss tolerant Authentication) that setups shared secret keys beforehand. In this case time stamps are used to validate keysThe impact on performance caused by the use of such secured protocol is evaluated through simulation on NS-2. The DSR without security is first simulated. Then the secured version of the protocol; SecDSR is simulated. The analysis of simulation results revealed that secured ad hoc routing is achievable at the expense of increased

The current study was conducted at the college of veterinary medicine, university of basrah in the periods extended from 22/10/2016 to 22/1/2017. Digoxin is an important cause of poisoning. It is prescribed and widely used to patients with heart failure. Digoxin toxicity can emerge during long-term therapy as well as after an overdose. Therefore, the study is designed to report the toxic effects of digoxin on heart histologically and biochemically by measuring troponin enzyme level in the serum. Maximum toxic dose (MTD) determined by using 2 rats dosed orally until clinical signs of toxicity became prominent at 30mg for each rat and considered as MTD. The chronic toxicity study was carried out on 48 adult rats divided into 4 groups, each group includes 12 rats. Control (G1) receive distilled water, Low dose (G2) dosed with (1.5mg/kg) digoxin, Intermediate dose (G3) dosed with (3mg/kg) digoxin and High dose (G4) dosed with (6mg/kg) digoxin by oral gavage for 90 days. At the end of experiments all animals were sacrificed and blood sample were collected for estimation of biochemical parameter of rat. Result reveal histopathological change of heart ranges from massive areas of degeneration of myocyte with homogenous cytoplasm to vacuolation of myocytes. Also show that a significant (P≤0.05) increase in serum troponin level in High dose (G4) group when compared with other study groups. We conclude that high dose digoxin has toxic effects on heart.

A biological cell is a complex and complicated environment, where thousands the entities 'interact surprisingly between each other. This the integrated device the continuously receives external and internal signals to carry out the most 'vital processes to sustain life. Although thousands the interactions are stimulated in very small areas, biologists assert that, there are 'no the collisions or the incidental events. On other the hand, rapid discoveries in biology and the rapid evolution of data collection make it difficult to build a concrete perspective that scientifically explains all observations. Cooperation has therefore become necessary among physicists, mathematicians, biologists and the computer engineers. The aim of this virtual company is to pursue what is known as biological network modelling.

journal of kerbala university, 2017, Volume 13, Issue 4, Pages 58-66

Tomatoes are one of the more important horticultural crops in the world. The obtained results proved that the shortage irrigation has a negative effect on tomato development. More irrigation showed a decrease of morphological and production. The non-significant increase in irrigation of water will be increase of the efficiency and reduction. The study also, indicated that it is sensitive to tolerance for drought stress through greenhouse. At 80 % of water holding capacity led to save 36.30 % of the irrigation water and reduction in yield by 30.76% in variety Kexin12. However, at 60% of water holding capacity resulted in 51.18 % of irrigation water saving but 56.13 % of the in yield were lost. Supplying 40% will be save about 62.54 % of irrigation in produce by 68.19 %. Therefore, the suggested results that supplying this variety Kexin 12 by 80% of WHC reduction in produce by 30.76% will be save 36.30 % of water.

journal of kerbala university, 2017, Volume 13, Issue 4, Pages 77-82

Objective: Reduction of folic acid (a type of vitamin-B) during pregnancy may cause a neural tube defect (NTD) called spina bifida. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence rate of spina bifida and its relation to folic acid, intake during pregnancy, and other factors like parents’ relative degree and radiation.
Methodology: Cases of spina bifida (n=18) and control subjects (n=16) from Maternity and obstetrics hospital at Karbala city were included. Mothers of newborns with spina bifida were interviewed by the researcher to collect some information on consuming folic acid and some demographic variables.
Results: Relative degree of parents was a significant factor to spina bifida (X2 (34,2) = 6.013, P= 0.04). No significant correlation was found between spina bifida and exposing to radiation during pregnancy. A significant correlation was found between having neonate with spina bifida and consuming folic acid during pregnancy (X2 (34,2) = 11.900, P= 0.003).
Conclusions: Women who had not taken folic acid during the first trimester of their pregnancy were more likely to have a neonate with spina bifida.
Recommendations: Health centers efforts should be focused on educating pregnant women on hazardous of some factors (such as radiation and misuse of drugs) on their babies’ health.

Changing in universal climate will cause a major effect on hydrological systems which will has a direct impact on ecological, economic and social systems. Climate change will be varied from location to another in the globe, therefore a specific site models are important to determine the impact on the aimed region. In this study the impacts of climate change been analyzed on the Matapedia River watershed located in Quebec, Canada; by developing a hydrological process based model to simulate the current and future river flows and the region precipitation. Matapedia hydrological model used Canadian Regional Circulation Model (CRCM) climate data to simulate future scenario of the watershed. Delta method been used for downscaling and Quantile-Quantile method used to correct the model results distributions. Then used corrected data for the hydrological model for the stream flow records between (1982-2001) to forecast stream flow, precipitations and other climate parameters such as temperature (max, min), wind and humidity. Results shows flow increased in future flow simulation even though extreme flood discharges by some means decreased in study area during winter and spring months due to an increased in maximum and minimum temperature about (2.65oC to 3.02oC) respectively during (2011-2100) period. Also an increase in precipitation in the future about (1.038) in study area headed to make the flood event of 100 and 1000 year return period more extreme.

journal of kerbala university, 2017, Volume 13, Issue 4, Pages 102-110

In this paper, the control motion of a three link robot manipulator with un-powerd first joint is discussed. The subjected system is a highly nonlinear, underactuated system. It mimics the acrobat which is trying to move from the down position to upside position through pumping energy to the two DC motors which are located on powered joints (active joints). The main challenge of this study is to show how to tune the control input signals applied to the two DC motors in order to move all robot links near neighborhood of the upright balance point. The optimum values of the control actions were obtained by using the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm. The objective function of this optimization method was determining the reasonable time to move the system to the desired upright position. The swing-up of the system was successfully achieved and the simulation outcomes showed the efficiency of the suggested control method.

Use of Recycled Coarse Aggregate from Construction Waste Compared with Iraqi Natural Aggregate to Production of New Concrete

Salim Hrez Jessam

journal of kerbala university, 2017, Volume 13, Issue 4, Pages 111-118

The reuse of construction waste in the production of concrete achieves two goals; the first is the removal of large amounts of sources of environmental pollution resulting from these wastes and, the second objective is to provide cheap sources of concrete aggregate. This study included test properties for two types of concrete mixes: concrete made with natural aggregate (NAC) and, the other mixes was made with fine natural aggregate and recycled coarse aggregate (local waste). These wastes were used in the second mix after removing the large pieces of gravel and well washing and grading. The results showed that recycled aggregate has a lower specific gravity and higher water absorption compared to the natural aggregate. The results also revealed that the concrete produced using the recycled aggregate has acceptable compressive strength and water absorption ratio and it has a higher flexural strength and less density comparing with concrete made with natural aggregate. So it is appropriate to use the concrete made using recycled aggregate in the work of paving concrete roads, casting of cars carriages, casting sidewalks and road paths.

This study was conducted in three provinces of Middle Euphrates ( Babylon, Karbala and Qadisiyah), Where the research methodology was based on a questionnaire in which stated the reasons for the decline of agricultural areas in those province during the period between (1991- 2010), Depending on the classified data through forms that have been given to the departments of agriculture and then to the peasants and farmers at the studing areas.
The main objective of the study is to find out the defect and the reasons for the lack of agricultural production points in Iraq receding agricultural areas and the reasons of this decline in the production of many crops.
Results showed that of more in the production, the lack of production is influenced by the scarcity of water for irrigation and inefficient irrigation and drainage networks, with the increase in costs incurred on the crop so that production could not read these costs, thus the financial benefits included in the negative accounts which increases the reluctance of the farmer and the farm for production, as well as the provinces show that more influential in the decline of the cultivated area is the province of Babylon, as recorded nearly half of the area this is due to the lack of the reclaimed area of the (10%) of the total agricultural land of the province

Driving forces for the agglomeration growth are represented by the factors which affect the industrial agglomeration growth especially in major cities. Major cities are urban centers and densely populated radiate vitality and their economic activity are interlaced internally and externally. Metropolitan cities are extensive labor market with diverse skills, and this is one of the features that encourage industrial agglomeration in the urban environment. The industries which more agglomerated, often they are choosing to locate new plants near to the same industries which are agglomerated in the same place. The main aim of this paper is to investigate the spatial impact of sustainable development in the industrial sector, in Bagdad for the period from 2005 to 2014. This paper focused on the main factors that are driving and affecting of the industrial agglomeration growth. Therefore, it focuses on two main factors, employment, the number of factories, because of their importance and availability. To achieve broader analysis of industrial agglomeration growth under the impact of the main factors; so, this paper has used reliable methodical manner, actual growth evidence. The findings, Baghdad constitutes 0.1% out of Iraq area, and is considered the smallest province in terms of area in Iraq. Nevertheless, more than half of industrial activity in Iraq has been agglomerated and concentrated in Baghdad.

The assessment process of drinking water quality are considered the most important issue that must be studied and consideration because of its significant effect on human health. In this study, two drinking projects within Al-Hindiya province in Karbala city were evaluated based on weighted arithmetic and CCME water quality indexes during years 2014 to 2016. The physicochemical parameters which were used in developed these indexes involve: Turbidity (Turb.), pH, Electrical Conductivity (EC), Alkalinity (Alk.), Calcium (Ca+2), Magnesium (Mg+2), Chloride (Cl-), Total Hardness (TH), Sulfate (SO4-2), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and Sodium (Na+). The Iraqi standard for drinking water (IQS- 417, 2001 ) was adopted. The results of the weighted arithmetic WQI showed that the raw water was unsuitable for drinking while the treated water had a good quality and the improvement ratio in water quality were between (75-90)%, while the CCME-WQI results indicate that the raw water quality was fair and the treated water good for drinking except in dry period of year 2015 where the quality of treated water was fair for drinking, knowledge that the raw water index was also the lowest in this time, the improvement ratio in water quality index based on this index were between (11-20)%. Also, it can be concluded that the improvement in water quality for both index were greater in dry season than wet season.

journal of kerbala university, 2017, Volume 13, Issue 4, Pages 168-181

A novel algorithm based on discrete wavelet transform DWT and subtractive clustering fuzzy inference system is presented to detect high impedance fault. As HIFs detection is usually very difficult using the common over current devices, both frequency and time data are needed to get the exact information to classify and detect no fault from HIF. Discrete wavelet transform is utilized for decomposing typical current, voltage and power of high impedance fault current signals. A specific comparison is made among many types of features of the voltage signal, current signal and power signal.

Estimation and Gradual Saturation for the Housing Need is the Key for the Sustainable Development in the Housing Sector- Iraq is an Evidence (Babylon Case study)

journal of kerbala university, 2017, Volume 13, Issue 4, Pages 68-76

Literature, at least in the past ten years has focused on the need for residential housing and need. And neglected the general trend of this need. We cannot deny the importance of the current need for housing. But there are an importance for the diagnosis of the general trend, and also there is more importance to highlight the need for housing in the future in order to control and direct the general trend of housing need or to modify it . Moreover, it will help us to assess and meet the need and reduce the deficit gradually. Sustainability in the Third World or developing countries, especially on the subject of the housing need , so far did not come out from the problem of the amount of need. Therefor we need a long time to talk about the qualitative aspect of the housing need. This research aims to predict the size of the housing need on the basis of the general trend of housing need. The most common tools are the least-squares or simple linear regression and by relying on historical data for time series acceptable and reasonable for the housing need. The general trend is not necessarily in line with what we wish often. And more importantly, to be an action guide for the future in the planning and help us to achieve the objectives which we wish and planned. Because the housing need is not a warehouse commodity can get it immediately. It is a complex process and is preceded it many steps it needs time and planning scientific nicely, and experts in the engineering, economics, sociology, finance. So we need to put in the hands of these experts, the evidence and real results to help them to put policies and plans. Whatever the results were, it will be under the influence of the general trend of the phenomenon.
