The Concept of Divinity in Terms of Heavenly and Positive Religions

journal of kerbala university, 2010, Volume 6, Issue 2, Pages 24-47

The concept of divinity underwent different dramatic stages of change, transformation ,development and considering the importance of religion and its solid relevance to politics and society especially that there exists no nation in the whole world capable of ignoring the overall impact of religion for its subjective importance as a spiritual inevitable need for mankind, since there has never been, along the history of civilization, a refined political organization nor a systematic human assembly unless it was associated with or predominated by an image of worship and faith in supernatural powers.
Accordingly, this study deals with the concept of divinity . What draws our attention in observing the concept of divinity in different civilizations was that this concept approaches the notion of oneness and monotheism. As these civilizations advanced , the relationship between the authority and the individual improved ,for this relationship is deprived from its benefits; and on the other hand ,whenever the ideology of divinity was inclined to polytheism , it' true meaning was distracted between the ancestors and natural powers leading to deterioration of civilization and the decline of the relationship between man and authority.
The concept of divinity settled with the emergence of heavenly religions which called for absolute oneness of God in Judaism, Christianity and Islam for the consolidation and identification of this concept; furthermore , the relation between man and God was clarified with the notice of the penetration of many pagan beliefs into the heavenly religions by the nations which embraced these religions but at the same time they maintained some of their idolatrous ideologies and social habits that are historically connected with paganism ; thereby the doctrines of divine immanentism slipped into Jewry while the beliefs of hypostasis , polytheism, trinity and humanity infiltrated into Christianity ; in addition to the idolization and worship of individuals ;also the surfacing of expiatory ideas and doctrines along with the extremist doctrines in the Islamic religion.
Nevertheless, the Islamic religion ,in general, is decisive in this matter considering the specific evident and comprehensive perspective it lays out towards absolute monotheism of the concept of divinity

(Agreement on the withdrawing of U.S. troops from Iraq: a vision in the strategic dimensions and the future caveats)

journal of kerbala university, 2010, Volume 6, Issue 2, Pages 112-127

The agreement of withdrawing the U.S. troops from Iraq may pave the way to liberate Iraq from the seventh chapter which had been knuckled after its occupation for Kuwait in 1991,also it will find a legal and future cover to the American forces.
Because of these importance , the agreement has been prelatised for many strategic reviewing among the internal and external powers.
In this laden climate, the hard birth occurred for this agreement on a base of getting the possible outcome in order to progress another step to change the station and achieve the security in Iraq.
According to these context, we can make our hypothesis which stress that : "the positive outputs of this agreement wouldn’t pass with out losing our sovereignty and our interests"
We divided our research in to six parts, the first part displayed the historical roots of relations of two countries.
The second part dealt with the manner of concluding the agreement according the Iraqi constitution and the realistic of the political operation
As to the third part, we explained the content of agreement to investigate the strategic damnations of it in the fourth part of our research .
Then we examined the future pitfalls of these agreement in the fifth part.
At last, we studied the political positions and the strategic maneuver of the internal and external powers toward the agreement.

A green house experiment was conducted at the Technical institute of almusyabe to study the interaction effect between organic matter and different sources of phosphate fertilizer on the growth and uptake of nutrients by spinach plants. Results showed that dry weight of spinach plants at different stages of plant growth and improved the chemical properties of super phosphate and rock phosphate. The addition of organic matter to the soil increases the N – uptake by the spinach plant at the different stages of plant growth, and that due to the beneficial effect of organic matter in improving the nutritional status particularly nitrogen from the soil, and also observed that super phosphate application increased P, K and Fe amounts in the tissues of studied plants due to the fertilizer value of added super phosphate.

Learning the Neural Network using New Evolving Method to Solve Prediction Problems

Saher Ahmed Mohammed Al-Bassam

journal of kerbala university, 2010, Volume 6, Issue 2, Pages 395-406

The meaning of the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) refers to a relatively new family of algorithms that may be used to find optimal (or near optimal) solutions to numerical and qualitative problems. Neural Network is an information processing system that has been developed as generalization models of human cognition of neural biology.
In this paper we learn the neural network using PSO method in the field of prediction to solve XOR problem in 4 parities (2, 3, 4, and 5) instead of using Back Propagation (BP) or Genetic Algorithm (GA) methods.
The suggested method is found to learn the NN by modifying the NN weights, this is done by calculating the fitness value which is considered as a threshold value.

journal of kerbala university, 2010, Volume 6, Issue 2, Pages 451-463

Shoot production on roots of R. rugosaThunb. showed some seasonal variation, fewest being produced in April and May. The application of 1 and 10 mg litre-1 BA to the whole segment of root cutting increased the number of shoot-buds. Increased shoot production also resulted from the application of 1500 mg litre-1 BA and 100 mg litre-1 IBA to the proximal and distal ends respectively. Root segments 0.3-1.5 cm thick and 15 cm long produced more shoots than shorter segments butthe number of shoots cm-1 was similar. Isolated roots of R. rugosa responded better to treatments than did those of R. dumetorumThuill. 'laxa'.

Shaymaa A. M. Alhashimi; Mustafa T. Al-Kifae; Rassul M. Almaini

journal of kerbala university, 2010, Volume 6, Issue 2, Pages 273-288

Vertical lift tunnel gates are subjected to hydrostatic and hydrodynamic forces produced as a result of operating condition over a wide range of partial openings, discharge and heads. Among these forces is the unbalanced vertical hydrodynamic force resulting from the difference between the downward force on the top of gate within the gate shaft and the upward force on the gate bottom, the net resultant of these two forces is termed as a downpull force. The estimation of downpull force requires the determination of the top and bottom pressure coefficient (KT and KB) which affected by the geometry of gate bottom and the rate of flow passing over the top surface of gate. A two-dimensional CFD model is applied to predict a downpull coefficient (KT and KB) which is named as FLUENT program. The finite volume method is employed on a Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes equations. The turbulence effects are simulated using the standard (k-ε) model. The simulation model is used for relevant experimental data obtained from hydraulic model tests conducted in laboratory for nine gate lip shape with nine gate openings for each gate lip geometry. The procedure is applied to estimate the pressure coefficients (KT and KB) for different gate bottom geometry. The results illustrate that the inclined gate lip shape with angle of (θ = 35o) given a minimum positive values of downpull force. Also, the downpull coefficient depends mainly on the magnitudes and the distribution of (KB) for a given value of (b2/b1). A general statistical model is built to predict the bottom pressure coefficient for any gate lip geometry.

Many researches that deal with the torsional vibrations phenomenon in crankshafts are considered constant inertias connected to sections of mass less shafting taking into account variation effects of torques only on crank units during running. In reality, crank mechanism with slider piston vibrates with varying inertias and this will lead to additional torsional vibrations depending on the number of cylinders in internal combustion engines.
In this research, inertias of crank mechanisms with different number of cylinders are studied. By solving the ordinary differential equation of torsional vibrations caused by inertia continuous deviation using mathematica and matlab computer programs, graphs of crankshafts torsional oscillation was sketched to compare among torsional vibrations of different internal combustion engines with different number of cylinders.

Infinitely variable transmission system, is the system which allows for continuous (un discreet) variation of transmission ratio including zero transmission ratio. In this paper, the geometric design and kinematics analysis for a novel cam based infinitely variable transmission system are presented. The proposed system has a number of identical units, each unit contains three dimensional cam (camoid), cam follower, grooved wheel, and one way clutch(ratchet). Through each unit the rotational motion is converted to an oscillatory linear motion of variable amplitude and then rectified to rotational motion again. The mathematical expressions for the kinematics analysis are formulated and simulation is established according to this formulation. It was concluded that at fixed transmission ratio, the system produces uniform output for uniform input. On the other hand, during transmission ratio variation there is a little fluctuation in the values of the output angular velocity and acceleration. This fluctuation is decreased when the number of units is increased. Also it was concluded that the maximum transmission ratio of the system depends on the geometric design factors.

The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) was designed to provide reliable end-to-end delivery of data over unreliable networks. In practice, most TCP deployments have been carefully designed in the context of wired networks. Ignoring the properties of wireless ad-hoc networks can lead to TCP implementations with poor performance. A mobile ad-hoc network is a collection of nodes that is connected through a wireless medium forming rapidly changing topologies.
In this paper, two MANET (Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork) networks are connected across an IP-Based internet network. The MANET is connected to the IP network through a MANET gateway that is running a MANET routing protocol and an IP routing protocol (or static routing) on one of its interfaces. A MANET gateway is any wireless LAN router that has its MANET Gateway attribute enabled. The MANET routing protocol that used is AODV(Ad-hoc On Demand Distance vector) and the TCP variants that used is Taho, Reno and NewReno and the number of mobile nodes will be 3, 5, and 7 for each scenario that used in the simulation.
After running the simulation, the results showed that the max throughput was in the scenario that has 5 nodes. This means that when increase the number of nodes above 5, the throughput will decrease.
The simulation environment is designed and modeled and the result is collected under the powerful network simulation tool that called OPNET Modeler 14.

Numerical Simulation of Temperature Distribution during Short Pulse Laser Processing of Aluminum Thin Films


journal of kerbala university, 2010, Volume 6, Issue 2, Pages 225-234

Fourier equation does not accurately predict the transient temperature during microscale laser heating of thin films. Therefore, non-Fourier behaviors may be significant for such microscale applications as pulsed-laser processing of metal and semiconductors, thin-film applications, and even laser surgery. A numerical model is developed to represent the temperature distribution during ultra short pulsed laser processing of aluminum thin films. The model developed is based on the solution of non-Fourier heat conduction problem with different thermal fluxes using explicit finite differences method. A computer program Quick-Basic language was built to perform the solution. The results of Non-Fourier heat conduction equation were compared with the results of Fourier heat conduction equation and showed that when the time increased Non-Fourier equation will be Fourier equation. The results showed that when increased the heat flux greater than the problem convert from one-dimensional non-Fourier heat conduction to one-dimensional non-Fourier phase change.

journal of kerbala university, 2010, Volume 6, Issue 2, Pages 324-341

The increase in traffic volumes along urban arterial is one of the important problems that makes difficulties in the operation management and movement then leads to traffic congestion in these facilities.
The present paper was dealing with the objectives of evaluation of the level of service along the 17th July arterial in Ramadi city, and use many improvement strategies to overcome the traffic operation problems. To achieve these objectives, the study was comprised of two stages. First stage was related to data collection by field survey where, the arterial street has two unsignalized intersections and traffic volume data were collected manually during 15-minute interval for each intersection of the arterial for both directions WestBound (WB) & EastBound (EB).Second stage included the analysis and evaluation of the arterial street with two cases. In the first case, the arterial was analyzed as street with unsignalized intersections (existing conditions). The arterial street was evaluated by computing its level of service based on the travel time and travel speed data which were measured by license plate method, while in the second case, the arterial was analyzed as street with signalized intersections therefore, Highway Capacity Software 2000 ( HCS 2000 ) program was used to evaluate the level of service for the arterial street. To improve its performance, three scenarios were proposed and applied theoretically. Accordingly, the level of service was improved from E to C for both directions (WB & EB).

journal of kerbala university, 2010, Volume 6, Issue 2, Pages 384-394

The meaning of the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) refers to a relatively new family of algorithms that may be used to find optimal (or near optimal) solutions to numerical and qualitative problems.
Stream ciphers are an important class of encryption algorithms. Shift register sequences are used in both cryptography and coding theory. There is a wealth of theory about them; stream ciphers based on shift registers have been the workhorse of military cryptography since the beginnings of electronics.
This paper aims to implement cryptanalysis attack algorithms on stream cipher systems using plaintext attack (or part from it), choosing one Linear Feedback Shift Register (LFSR), since its considered as a basic unit of stream cipher systems, in the performance of PSO by solving Linear Equations System (LES) for any number of variables of the output of LFSR.
The application divided into two stages, first, constructing LES’s for the LFSR, and the second, is attacking the variables of LES’s which they are also the initial key values the of LFSR.

journal of kerbala university, 2010, Volume 6, Issue 2, Pages 429-438

Fifty two (17.3%) Escherichia coli isolates were obtained as a causative agent of symptomatic genital tract infection, from 299 (pregnant 156 and non-pregnant 143) patients aged 18-45 years. There is no significant difference between the two patient groups regarding the prevalence of E. coli which was isolated from 14.1% of pregnant and 20.9% of non-pregnant. As a whole 26.9% of this study isolates showed MRHA of human RBCs and 88.4% caused MS agglutination of Baker's yeast. The difference is not significant between pregnant and non-pregnant women’s isolates regarding the expression of Type 1 fimbriae (86.3% and 90% of pregnant and non-pregnant women’s isolates, respectively); P fimbriae (27.2% and 26.6% of pregnant and non-pregnant women’s isolates, respectively) and Dr fimbriae (0% in both patient groups). While the difference is clear for the expression of S fimbriae. S fimbriae were expressed only by non-pregnant women’s isolates (6.6%) whereas none of the pregnant women’s isolates expressed this type of fimbriae. All the S fimbriated isolates were P- (2/2: 100%) and Type 1-fimbriated (2/2: 100%). In pregnant, all of the P-fimbriated isolates were also Type 1-fimbriated (6/6: 100%) while in non-pregnant, seven P-fimbriated isolates were also Type 1-fimbriated (7/8: 87.5%). From the present results it can be concluded that as vaginal E. coli may be one of the possible causes leading to UTI and neonatal infections, both pregnant and non-pregnant patients with genital tract infection caused by E. coli, have the same chance to contact UTI and there is a low frequency of neonatal infections caused by these patients' vaginal E. coli.
