The present study investigated and identified genetic diversity between native White chicken lines and two commercial Broiler (Rose) and Layer (Isa Brown) chicken breeds using RAPD markers and a sequencing technique. All primers applied produced 151 scorable bands with percentage polymorphic loci of 54.93 % within chicken populations, as per the results of the RAPD marker. The maximum amplified fragment by primer OPC-11 was 22 and the fewest by primer OPAA-03 was 7. For all loci analyzed, the effective number of alleles (ne), means the observed number of alleles (na), Shannon's information index (I), and gene diversity (h) was 1.4394, 1.5493, 0.3496, and 0.2441, respectively. The presence of a high number of polymorphisms and targeted (71) loci across all chicken populations indicates that RAPD-PCR techniques provide sufficient genetic distance and higher genetic variation among chicken populations. The highest identity of the blasted sequences of the 18srRNA gene of local white chicken is 90.41 % and 84.23 %. Likewise, a total of 46 and 27 nucleotides are altered with 27 and 10 gaps in both sequences for the first and second regions, respectively. According to both phylogenetic trees, the local white chicken had a stronger sense of individuality and was slightly closer to the commercial broiler breeds than the layer chicken breeds. As a result, it suggests that enhancing the local chicken line requires a broiler breeding program, as well as cross-breeding with other native chicken lines to obtain hereditarily significant new strains.

To reduce the health complications of obesity, safe therapies and effective weight loss processes must be identified with preventing weight regain at the same time.Humans have metabolic flexibility and the potential to utilise ketones as an energy source by reducing carbohydrate intake in the diet, this reduces insulin levels, and ketogenesis occurs . These conditions promote the release of excess stored fat, avoid muscle weakness, and improve insulin sensitivity. Losing weight by diet causes appetite feeling and a rise in ghrelin release , that raises the likelihood of regaining weight and is thus counterproductive to goals for weight reduction . A study's aim is to review evidence on a ketogenic diet for weight loss and metabolic illnesses like insulin resistance, lipid disorders, cardiovascular disease, fatty liver disease development, and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. We present a foundational understanding of dietary ketones and how they are formed.

This research concerns the synthesis of two carboxymethyl chitosan (CMCs) complexes with Cu(II) and Ni(II). The synthesized complexes were characterized using (FT-IR) showing absorption peaks in the region (566 cm-1) which belongs to the bonds of Cu(II) with carboxymethyl chitosan [Cu(CMCs)2] and (580 cm-1) which belongs to the bonds of Ni(II) with carboxymethyl chitosan [Ni(CMCs)2]. Molar conductivity was determined for both complexes [Cu(CMCs)2] and [Ni(CMCs)2] and the results showed that these complexes non-electrolytes . UV-visible has been also recorded for [Cu(CMCs)2] complex solution (0.50 x 10-3M) is absorbed at (295 nm). It is proposed that [Cu(CMCs)2] possess a square planar structure. Whereas [Ni(CMCS)2] is absorbed at (290 nm) supposing that the structure of this complexes is tetrahedral. The absorbance of both complexes can be attributed to the (π→π*).

This paper is concerned with the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) system that is adopted by wireless communication system for transmitting multicarrier modulated signals simultaneously with robustness against interference and noise facing the system. It presents a significant issue related to OFDM system known as the raise of Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) that is the high peaks of OFDM signals compared to its average power. Increasing the PAPR yields in the component devices of OFDM system not cope with the high peaks resulting in distortion and signal losses. Therefore, the objective of this article is to review different approaches of PAPR reduction techniques and compare them to select the best technique for a particular system. The approaches are mainly of three classifications; distortion, probabilistic, and coding schemes with each including several techniques.

The aim of this research is to improve the flow properties of polymers, in particular viscosity, by mixing polymers to be use in various fields. Samples prepared by stirring polyvinyl alcohol on fire for half a second in a fixed weight ratio with divergent weight ratios of polyethylene glycol and polyvinylpyrrolidone, both separately. Other samples were prepared in the same way by mixing the three polymers followed by measuring the molecular weight of all the samples. This method of preparation made the polymers insoluble in water, therefore nitric acid was used to dissolve them. Flow time of the solvent and all solutions were measured, which was used to calculate the viscosities, It has been shown that these viscosities increase with increasing concentrations of polymers in solutions by establishing a positive relationship between them, It was found that the intrinsic viscosity decreases with increasing concentrations after being graphed using intrinsic viscosity calculations from the relationship between specific viscosity and relative viscosity logogram with concentration. These results may be used in industrial medical applications as well as scientific studies.

In this research, the months of comfort and discomfort were identified using the Temperature-Humidity Index in selected stations in Iraq (Mosul, Baghdad, Basra) using data of the temperature and relative humidity values of the period (1983-2014) obtained from the Iraqi Meteorological organization and Seismology.
The results showed that the months of discomfort in the three study stations were (May, June, July, August, September, October), while the months of comfort in the three study stations were both (March, November), while the months (January, February, April, December) alternated between comfort and discomfort in the three study stations.
This research also clarified the effect of both temperature and relative humidity on the values of the Temperature-Humidity Index by clarifying the nature of the relationship between them by calculating the coefficient of correlation using Microsoft Excel (2010), where the results showed a linear strong correlation between temperature and Temperature-Humidity Index values, where the values of correlation coefficients ranged between (0.985) – (0.997), while the correlation was inversely strong between relative humidity and Temperature-Humidity Index values where the values of correlation coefficients ranged between (-0.991) – (-0.906) in the study stations, this indicates that the increase in the value of temperature and decrease relative humidity leads to an increase in the values of the Temperature-Humidity Index, and vice versa.

Radiations made up of non-ionizing and ionizing radiations, this classification is based on the ionizing power and the energy of radiations. In developed and developing communities, people are continually exposed to radiations which are generated from variety sources that are naturally occurring or producing by human. The purpose of this study is to review accessible information on the influence of radiation on female fertility and to discuss the options for fertility preservation. Radiation exposure can result in impairment of tissue integrity and sometimes, leading to organs dysfunction, the impact of radiations on organs depend on site of irradiation, patient age and total radiation dose. Female patients who are treated with radiation have an increased rate of uterine dysfunction, ovaries dysfunction, impaired fertility, incidence of pregnancy complications, premature birth and miscarriage. Pre-pubertal uterus is more vulnerable to the effect of radiation, compared with the pubertal uterus due to arising ovarian estrogen production and uterus enlarges. To reduce the effects of radiations on female reproductive organ, fertility preservation procedures such as ovarian transposition, reproductive gland protection and oocyte cryopreservation should be carried out before and/or during radiotherapy.

The development of high storage systems of clean, sustainable, low coasting and renewable energy has become a global concern. During the past decades, the efforts of engineers, chemists, and physicists collaborated to devise multiple ways and methods for implementing these systems, some of which were realistic and found their way in industrial applications, whereas the largest part has been existed as proposals in the scientific articles. Lately, a new wholly aromatic polymer of (1, 5-diaminoanthraquinone a member of anthraquinone dye family) (PDAA) has drawn some researchers interest as a promising postulant for supercapacitor electrodes. Beyond some other similar works which is mentioned in the previous approach, almost no effort was registered relating the preparation of derivatives of this chemical. This work proposes the synthesis of the energy rich azo-Schiff bases derived from 1, 5-diaminoanthraquinone (DAAQ) and modifying their absorption spectra in order to be integrated to our earlier studies in chemical energy storage systems developing program. Five new derivatives (An1-An5) were synthesized by gentle fusing of (1 mmol of DAAQ) with (2 mmol) of early prepared azo derivatives of 2-hydroxy benzaldyhde. Medium to good yield was recorded on applying this method. Microwave irradiation of the same mixtures led to decomposition of the starting azo martials, whereas prolonged reflux in DMSO was unproductive.

Among 310 different clinical samples, 48 isolates of proteus were obtained, 14 isolates ( 29.16%) were obtained from urine, 15 isolates(31.25% ) were obtained from stool, 7 isolates )14.58%) from ear swabs, 4 isolates(8.33%) were obtained from wounds, 5 isolates (10.41%( from burns and 3 isolates )6.25%) of the high cervical. The study showed that from 48 isolates of Proteus spp 25 isolates (52.08 %) identified as P.mirabilis, 15 isolates (31.25% )of P. penerri, while 8 isolates of P. Vulgaris were obtained with a percentage of (16.66%) and it was found that 18 isolates( 72%) of P.mirabilis isolates were positive for the production of beta-lactamase enzyme, 24 isolates (96%) are positive for proteases and 14 isolates (56 %) produced lipase, while 13 isolates from P. penerri (86.66%) produced beta-lactamases and proteases and 10 isolates (66.66%) produced lipase, also found that 5 isolates (62.5%) of P. vulgaris produced Beta-lactamase and all the isolates (100%) produced protease while 7 isolates (87.5%) produced lipase. . It was found that the hot aqueous extract of pomegranate peels inhibited the production of beta-lactamase enzyme in 4 out of 7 isolates that produced this enzyme, while all tested isolates did not produce lipase by using extracts of pomegranate peel extracts. The isolates lost their ability to produce protease enzyme, except for two isolates that were not affected by extracts of pomegranate peel fruits.

Abstract
In this paper, we use the maximum track length (Lmax⁡) approach depending on track diameter-length (D-L) correlation as another way to estimate Vb directly from empirical measurements of the track diameters or lengths without resorting to other methods. The lengths of the tracks have been extracted using the (D-L) correlation which relied on the measurement of the opening diameter of the etched tracks, in addition to using the Track-Test program. 241Am (1μCi) source was used to irradiate the plastic detector CR-39 with alpha particles of energies of (3.5-5.3) MeV by means of normal incidence. The irradiated detectors were treated by a chemical etchant for distinct intervals of time using an aqueous NaOH solution of 6N preserved at temperature (70±1) oC. An empirical formula was applied to calculate Vb. The formula relies on two parameters, the maximum length of the track (Lmax ) and its saturation time (tsat). We have seen that the magnitude of Vb is equal to 1.407 μm/h, which can be regarded as compatible with the values indicated by others using different methods. It has been noticed that the maximum length of the etched tracks is directly proportional to alpha energy while exponentially to saturation time of the length.

Abstract
The aim of this study was to determine, by a systematic review, the radiation doses of different dental x-ray devices, their particular effects, and the cumulative results of various studies done with various dosimeters. Google scholar was searched from 2014 to 2021 using the following keywords: radiation dose, dosimeters in dentistry, types of dosimeters, Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) radiation. The references of selected papers were also analyzed. Articles were chosen that fit the criterion for utilizing dosimeters in dentistry applications. This review was separated into four sections: (1) biological impacts of radiation, (2) dosimeter characteristics, (3) dosimeter kinds, and (4) the findings of numerous investigations employing various dosimeters. According to a recent assessment of dosimetry based on different investigations conducted with dosimeters, the effective dosage supplied has decreased since the introduction of radiography techniques. As a result, radiological method selection is critical in dental dosage administration.

The present study was investigated and identified genetic diversity between native White chicken lines and two commercial Broiler and Layer chicken breeds using RAPD markers and a sequencing technique. All primers applied produced 151 scorable bands with percentage polymorphic loci of 54.93 % within chicken populations, as per the results of the RAPD marker. The maximum amplified fragment by primer OPC-11 was 22 and the fewest by primer OPAA-03 was 7. For all loci analyzed, the effective number of alleles (ne), means the observed number of alleles (na), Shannon's information index (I), and gene diversity (h) was 1.4394, 1.5493, 0.3496, and 0.2441, respectively. The presence of a high number of polymorphisms and targeted (71) loci across all chicken populations indicates that RAPD-PCR techniques provide sufficient genetic distance and higher genetic variation among chicken populations. The highest identity of the blasted sequences of the 18srRNA gene of local white chicken is 90.41 % and 84.23 %. Likewise, a total of 46 and 27 nucleotides are altered with 27 and 10 gaps in both sequences for the first and second regions, respectively. According to both phylogenetic trees, the local white chicken had a stronger sense of individuality and was slightly closer to the commercial broiler breeds than the layer chicken breeds. As a result, it suggests that enhancing the local chicken line requires a broiler breeding program, as well as cross-breeding with other native chicken lines to obtain hereditarily significant new strains.

Kirkuk gas turbine power plant is supplied by the gaseous fuel from north gas company. The results showed that the theoretical efficiency of the unit is a function for two parameters; the compressor input temperature and the pressure ratio rp . So, the pressure rp ratio depends directly on the compressor input temperature. If the net work of the unit Wnet (Wt - Wc) is taken to be an index for the performance, the efficiency ƞ will be more in summer than that in winter because of the considerable reduction in compressor work Wc , while if the specific energy produced (or consumed specific fuel SFC) is taken as an index for the performance; the actual efficiency ƞac is more in winter since the specific energy produced in winter is greater approaching (4.5 kW.hr.m-3), while it did not exceed (2.8 kW.hr.m-3) in summer, this belong to the performance improving as the load increases approaching the design load, this is prevailing on the power plant operated by the diesel, heavy fuel or crude oil.

The Annual and monthly averages of rainfall and temperature of the tow tikrit and baiji meteorological stations showed that the general annual rainfall is (185) mm. The maximum rainfall is 35.5 mm in January and the minimum is (0.0) mm in august while the general monthly averages of temperature ranging between (8.7 C° in January - 36.5 C° in july ). After calculating the potential evapotranspiration values PE by thornthwait method then derive the values of water surplus WS in order to determined the amount of water that permeates to the groundwater level for each zone in the basin. After the main elements was selected depending by equations that has been developed for each zone as follows : 26 % of rainfall permeates to replenish the groundwater in the basin when the zone A lack o opportunity to allow infiltration of rainfall to the groundwater level for both A and B zones are based on monthly averages of whole surveillance period ( 1989 – 2009 ). The soil moisture amount (SM) is 25 mm for the zone A and 75 mm for each of A and B zones. When we search in the years that exceeds the general annual averages of rainfall ( 185 ) mm , founded that there are (9) years beyond the mentioned averages and account for about (43 %) of surveillance period where the general annual average equal to (242.39) mm and maximum monthly average of the rainfall is ( 41.86) mm in march and lowest average is (0.0) mm in july and august. Depending on these years mentioned, the water surplus for both zones C and B , showed that an increase about ( 29.93) mm from the average of annual rainfall equal to (242.39) mm and (12.34 %) from the rainfall permeates to fed the groundwater in B zone. 7 % adopted as a surface runoff from the rainfall equal to (16.96) mm and the ratio groundwater recharge in C zone is equal to (12.97 ) mm. The variation in groundwater values of recharge along the basin ( A,B and C ) is only a reflection for the type and texture of the deposits on the hand and varying depths, simple differences in topography and evolution of surface water drainage especially in the western part of C zone on the other hand . while the demonstrating convergence of inventories renewed values for the three zones although they have different area and water depths pervasive in all of them but the justification for this approach the increase in area of zones A , B and C, accompanied by decreasing values of deep water permeates for each zone must be noted here that the opportunity to renew stocks of ground water for both B and C amounting to 42 % of the prospect for renewed stocks of water in the zone A as well as the presence of large quantities of leaked water from the liquefaction and sewage water in zone A .

This work involves the synthesis of different substituted amino-chalcones via claisen- schmidt condensation reaction between p-amino acetophenone and different aromatic substituted benzaldehydes. The second step involves the conversion of amino-chalcones to diazonium salt which were reacted with different phenolic compounds to give azo-chalcone . Some azo-chalcones containing acetyl group wrer prepared by reactingdiazonium salt with para-hydroxyacetophenone, and this gave bis- azo-chalcoe on reaction with substituted aromatic benzaldehyde.
The chemical structure of the synthesized compounds were confirmed on the basis of their spectral data (FTIR, 1HNMR, 13CNMR) and CHN analysis.
