This phenomenon has witnessed changes in rates over the past decades due to several related conditions such as lack of health awareness, health care programs, family health and others. Undernourishment, wars, migration, fertility, epidemics, etc. are all factors that can contribute to the growth of child mortality, especially those under five years of age [9] [10]. In recent years, globally, there has been significant progress in reducing child mortality rates for the under-5 population, falling to 5.6 (6.0, 6.0) million in 2016 from 12.6 (12.4, 12.8) in 1990. It has reached 15,000 deaths On the day of 2016, compared with 35,000 deaths per day in 1990. Approximately 39-44 deaths per 1000 live births in 2016, up from 92-95 per 1,000 live births in 1990. The neonatal mortality rate was 49% lower in 2016 than in 1990. Half of all child deaths in the world are represented by the Republics: India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Ethiopia. In Iraq, however, the situation is not very different from those countries where mortality rates have increased significantly due to the health and environmental conditions and the economic embargo that lasted from 1990 to 2003 and the consequent lack of food and basic medical supplies and wars that left many epidemics and diseases and As well as the political and security instability since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003 till the recent time. All these factors have had a clear effect on the growth of children mortality. Therefore, there was necessary to study deeply to analyze this phenomenon on scientific and statistical basis, enabling the health authorities and organizations concerned with children Protection to adopt a methodology and plans to reduce this phenomenon in order to preserve the future of our generations and to promote a healthy reality to build a healthy society[11]. In this study, linear regression models (simple, quadratic and cubic) will be used to analyze mortality data and to compare the mortality rates of the age groups under study with height and explanatory power indicates and the acceptability of each model in the interpretation of mortality.</p> 2019-06-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of University of Babylon https://www.journalofbabylon.com/index.php/JUBPAS/article/view/2365 Analysis of the Correlation between the Overhead and Inflation in Iraq`s Economy for the Period (2002–2015) 2019-06-23T11:07:48+00:00 Shaima Abdelhadi Hussein Shaimaaahrifi585@gmail.com <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Public expenditure is one of the main pillars on which the government is based in achieving specialized financial functions (efficient allocation of available and distributional economic resources, distribution certificates , stability of economic stability) and the impact of increasing the volume of cash in lraq as a result of the expansion of the role of the state and the financing method under exceptional circumstances or through the new cash issue or public loans and their money from the impact of high inflation rates and the general high level of prices continuously during the period of research , Expenditure , inflation , inflationary gap.</p> 2019-06-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of University of Babylon https://www.journalofbabylon.com/index.php/JUBPAS/article/view/2366 The Possibility of Applying the Program and Performance Budget in Iraqi Universities Descriptive Analytical Study of the University of Babylon 2019-07-04T07:27:00+00:00 Kareem J.

The visual analogue scale (VAS) of pain shows significant mean difference related to sex (p=0.031), the pain is higher in female, however, it decreases in both sexes with the time. There is a significant indirect strong correlation (p=0.001) between pain and mouth opening limitation. Lastly, the limitation of mouth opening is not significant to sex ,age, deviation, or the&nbsp; cause of&nbsp; fracture.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> The adjustment of occlusion during IMF for patient with subcondylar fracture treated with closed reduction, play an important role in minimizing the possible post-operative facial asymmetry. Most patients with subcondylar fracture, especially those with mild or moderate displacement (less than 45 degrees) can be successfully treated with closed reduction with minimal post-operative complications.</p> 2019-06-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of University of Babylon https://www.journalofbabylon.com/index.php/JUBPAS/article/view/2368 Knowledge Sharing and its Role in Achieving Competitive Advantage for the Healthy Organizations Exploratory Research in the Women and Obstetrics Hospital / Holy Karbolaa 2019-06-23T11:39:00+00:00 Ali Abd Alamir Abd Alhussein Kmona dralikamona@gmail.com Rana Nasir Saber ranaaltay1978@gmail.com Nagham Daikh Abed Ali naghamdaikh@gmail.com <p>The research topic tackled knowledge sharing and its role in achieving competitive advantage for the healthy organizations, The research sought to achieve several objectives, the most important of which was (Knowledge of the importance of knowledge sharing and the competitive advantage of the organization as one of the vital variables important to the life of all organizations, including health organizations, And diagnose the nature of relationships of the correlation and effect between the knowledge sharing and competitive advantage In the surveyed hospital .</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Due to the importance of the health sector and its role in meeting the health and safety requirements, The research was carried out in (The Women and Obstetrics Hospital / Holy Karbolaa), where the research was conducted on a sample of (85) people working in various positions within the administrative staff of the surveyed hospital .</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The research was based in its practical framework on the questionnaire to acquire data and information.

Where this dolomites are similar to most dark gray dolomites are common in many salt plugs of the Arabian Gulf, Oman and Iran. They seem to be an essential and consistent part of the Hormuz Series. Severe tectonic movements during the exhumation phase led to the formation of the carbonate breccia at the uppermost part of the deposit. Streaks of organic matter probably result from oxygen-poor conditions during the Infra-Cambrian; Suggest that dolomitization could be an alternative dolomaitization model.</p> <p>Dolomitization is believed to be related to a shallow setting and brine reflux.

Abdul Wahhab nihalwahab@yahoo.com <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; A rocking ratchet phenomenon of directed transport is demonstrated. This has been realised with cold rubidium atoms in one dimensional dissipative optical lattice with <em>lin</em> <em>lin </em>configuration. The temperature of the cold atomic cloud is measured by time of flight technique with 29 . The atom number trapped in the MOT is determined using absorption imaging to be &nbsp;atoms. The results show the influence of the atomic current amplitude by varying the lattice beams parameters. One of the lattice beams is modulated with different modulation depths. It shows that highest modulation values have a higher atomic current. The current amplitude is also depending on the modulation frequencies. The results indicate the possibility of existence the vibrational frequency. The harmonic amplitude ratio varied and found the ratchet current is growing with increasing the amplitude of one of the lattice beams and at a certain value goes down</p> 2019-07-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of University of Babylon https://www.journalofbabylon.com/index.php/JUBPAS/article/view/2415 The Effect of Financial Indicators on the Gross Domestic Product of the USA Economy for 1990-2015 (A standard study) 2019-07-30T09:31:20+00:00 Abdul Jasem Abbas AlA Allah Jalkhalidy@ymail.com Adnan Dawood M. AL-Ethary Skuna_100@yahoo.com <p>Gross domestic product (GDP) is a major indicator of economy for the United States of America, So the federal government tried to maintain its stability by expanding the growth of public spending, tax revenue and public debt, Which means the use of fiscal policy in the management of the overall supply at the level of the modern economy. This study is aimed to estimate and analyze the impact of financial indicators on economic growth based on time series data covering the period 1990-2015 using the VIF and TOL factors and to test the hypotheses and clarifying the relationship between them to verify the validity of the hypothesis.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The obtained results of the analysis of the standard models of the research show there is a positive effect of the financial indicators on US GDP based on the parameter values of the model, As the increase of public expenditure, public revenues and public debt by 1% will increase the GDP by 0.44%, 0.45%, 0.11% respectively. This is compatible with economic logic and theoretical hypotheses.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The study recommends directing public spending and tax revenue as well as public loans towards productive economic areas which supports economic activity and expansion the supply base to cover growing aggregate demand.</p> 2019-07-07T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of University of Babylon
