Full histories, a proper examination of the chest, ECG, CXR, Echocardiography, cardiac catheterization, CT scan of the chest and immunoblot tests are essential diagnostic tools. Fifteen patients diagnosed preoperatively as having cardiac hydatid cysts were involved in this retrospective study. There was neither sex predilection nor any age limit for the disease. Any part of the heart could be involved, but the <strong><em>Left ventricle</em></strong> was the commonest site. Many patients included in the study were associated with extracardiac involvement especially the liver. Removal of the cyst(s) surgically stays the treatment of choice.</p> 2019-03-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of University of Babylon Homeostasis Events for Serum Ionized Calcium Accompanied by Anti- Mullerian Hormone in Some Women with Primary Infertility in Babylon Province 2019-06-06T17:19:43+00:00 Noran Jameel Ibraheem Manar Muhammad Hasan Al-Murshidi Walaa Saleh Hasan <p>Ionized calcium has a biological activity, this study has been debated whether the status of calcium homeostasis in correlated with anti-Mullerian hormone level how does influence the reproductive ability in some pre-menopausal women. The current study was conducted in the college of science for women during the period from February 2015 to May 2016, study population was involved eighty volunteer women (20-35) years enrolled in this study, fifty women with primary infertility considered as a study group, while the other 30 volunteers parous women considered as a control group. ELISA kit was used to assay the serum level of anti-Mullerian and parathyroid hormone, whereas colorimetric technique was applied to evaluate the total calcium, albumin, and inorganic phosphorus serum level, while ionized calcium is achieved by special equation depending on the total calcium and albumin level. Independent T-test analysis was applied to specify any significant variation for investigated parameters between control and study group, linear regression analyses were used to explore the association between ionized calcium and anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) level in both control and infertile groups. The results revealed that infertile group have significantly (p&lt;0.001) lower mean serum ionized calcium level(4.31±0.61mg/dl)than the control group(5.57±0.45mg/dl) accompanied by significantly (p&lt;0.001) increase in parathyroid hormone level (49.2±32.2 ng/dl) in a study group in comparison with a control group whose reported (92.1±22.2ng/dl) mean concentration ,infertile women revealed significantly decrease mean level in anti-Mullerian hormone (2.59±1.38ng/d) &nbsp;compared with &nbsp;the control group (3.44±1.00ng/dl), linear regression analyses revealed a significant positive relation between's ionized calcium concentration and AMH level (r=0.58, p=0.000, n=40) in the control group, as well, there was a significant strong positive connection was seen between serum ionized calcium and AMH level for the infertile group (r=0.70, p=0.000, n=50),our conclusion suggested that any physiological process including reproductive ability may need in one way or another to balance in the availability of ionized calcium.</p> 2019-03-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of University of Babylon Study the Relation of Cloud Cover with Evaporation and Solar Radiation over Baghdad City 2019-06-06T17:19:43+00:00 Nagham Thari Ibraheem <p style="text-align: justify;">Cloud cover effects on most other meteorological variables. It effects on the amount of radiation entering the boundary layer of the atmosphere and thus it controls the amount of energy within this range. Evaporation is also an important factor in the formation of clouds and directly affects the energy equation. This study was based on daily data of cloud cover and evaporation values taken from Iraqi meteorological organization and seismology for the period 2000 to 2005 for the city of Baghdad, as well as the solar radiation data of the three components (direct - diffuse - reflected) and the same location and period time period taken from European center of solar energy services for professionals study (soda), monthly and annual rates were calculated to show the correlation between these variables.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">To carry out statistical operations and convert the values of the cloud cover to the proportions of eight parts to indicate the proportion of clouds in the sky and drawing diagrams, the results showed that there is a significant effect of the evaporation processes on the formation of the cloud cover. High evaporation values are associated with high values of the cloud cover and have a high positive correlation coefficient value hits (0.74). The results showed that the cloud cover values are inversely proportional to the direct and diffused radiation compounds and have a negative correlation coefficient of&nbsp; (-0.93). This effect is less on the reflected radiation component. In general, the cloud cover can be used to estimate the values of some other meteorological variables, especially in winter seasons.</p> 2019-03-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of University of Babylon Preparation and Characterization of poly-aniline hydrochloride (PANI-HCL) Nano-composites by Radiation 2019-06-06T17:19:43+00:00 Moamar H.

Additionally, through marketing, companies can communicate directly with customers, and this activity includes marketing practices that are deceptive or misleading. The study dealt with the presentation of the components of the marketing mix, and how each component can include deceptive or misleading practices. Marketers practice customer manipulation with the intention of changing customers' behavior and attitudes towards achieving the greatest possible profit in lesser time. With the spread of marketing deception and marketing fraud in various areas, the phenomenon is growing not only in product marketing but also in service marketing, especially insurance services, as many marketers and sales representatives believe that success and profit-making are associated with those practices. The study addressed many factors facilitating these practices, as well as the ways in which marketing deception is practiced and the impact of such practice on the perceptions that form in the minds of customers about companies. One of the most important objectives of the study was to substantiate the relationship between the dimensions of marketing deception and the dimensions of the mental image of the organization by relying on the statistical analysis of the initial data of the study, which was collected through questionnaire that was prepared for this purpose and distributed to a random sample of 225 customers of insurance companies operating in the insurance market in Iraq.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The most important findings of the study show that deceptive marketing practiced through the service marketing mix, among other dimensions, affects the mental image that the customers hold towards the organization in negative and varying ways. This study presents a number of recommendations, the foremost of which is the necessity of educating marketers and companies about the negativity of deceptive practices on the company in the long term, as well as paying attention to the mental image held by customers towards the insurance companies because of its impact on the formation of positive impressions towards the company, and thus increasing market share of the company through its reputation in the insurance&nbsp; market .</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> 2019-03-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of University of Babylon Capital Adequacy and its Impact on Banking Liquidity Risk Applied Study in the Bank of the Islamic National and Commercial Iraqi for the Period (2012-2017) 2019-06-06T17:19:42+00:00 Qassem Ali Omran <p style="text-align: justify;">The aim of this paper is to highlight one of the risks facing the banking system in general and the Iraqi in particular, both Islamic and commercial, resulting from the low liquidity of banks from their safe levels, which expose the bank to a number of effects, especially when exposed to sudden withdrawals through measuring and analyzing the banking liquidity risk of banking and the statement The most important means used to processing&nbsp; these risks, including the adequacy of capital according to the Basel II Accord.
