Thirteen different soil samples near the rhizosphere were collected from different places in Mosul city/ Iraq. Sixty six different bacterial isolates were isolated from these samples. After testing the capability of each one of these isolates in antagonizing some pathogenic fungi we had 7 different bacterial isolates with an antifungal activities. They were designated as AF1-AF7. An identification of these bacteria was done, and they appeared to belong to different Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria such as Bacillus, Pseudomonas, and Paenibacillus. The antifungal activities of these bacteria were compared between each other on the pathogenic fungi Fusarium, Penicillium, Alternaria, and Aspergillus. The results showed that there is a high probability of isolating different potent antifungal bacteria from the non root-associated soils (and they could be used as potent biological control agent instead of harmful chemicals). The isolates AF3 and AF7 were the most active isolates against the test fungi because of their high inhibition zones and they were belonged to Gram Positive bacteria Paenibacillus and Bacillus respectively, and the inhibition was due to the production of antifungal metabolites or antibiotics.

To show if a small dose of estrogen can interfere with the effect of Cimetidine on male reproductive system. Five groups of five randomly selected adult male rats were utilized. Rats were given food (laboratory rat chow) and water ad libitum. Rats were treated orally with Cimetidine 50mg/kg and subcutaneous injection with estradiol 0.01µg for 60 days. The animals were grouped as: group1, treated from days 1-10. Group2, treated from days 20-30. Group3, treated from days 40-50. Group4, treated from days 50-60. Group 5 received no treatment as a control group. Blood samples were taken from the eyes (by using capillary tubes) to measure testosterone (T) and follicular stimulating hormone (FSH) levels. Measurement of weights of the reproductive organs including the testis, epididymis (head, body, and tail), seminal vesicle and prostate were done. Body weight for each animal was recorded before and after treatment. Also we counted the total sperm count and the percentage of dead and alive spermatozoa for the treated groups using Eosin–negrosin stain. The testis weight and prostate weight was significantly increased in both groups 3 and 4, while seminal vesicle weight was significantly reduced. FSH levels were significantly increased, while testosterone levels were unchanged. Total sperm count and a number of a live sperms were significantly reduced and the number of dead sperms was significantly increased among the treated groups. Cimetidine has hazards on male reproductive function while estrogen didn't play any role to abolish this action.

The aim of this work is to study the properties of the photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) and the laser field distribution at the zero dispersion wavelengths (ZDWs).
Three PCFs are proposed, all the PCFs have one missing hole and one ring of holes around the core (6 holes). For PCF1, the hole diameter d=4.0µm and the pitch size Λ=2.0µm. In PCF2 a 8.1% reduction in both d and Λ. While 8.8% reduction in d & Λ for the PCF3 in order to keep the air filling fraction (AFF) (d/Λ =0.2) constant for structures which are operating in single mode regime.
The real and the imaginary parts of the effective refractive index, confinement loss, dispersion profile, dispersion slope, group velocity dispersion β2 and cubic dispersion β3 all are investigated.
The results show that the proposed structures gives dispersion profile with triple zero dispersion wavelength, and the reduction in d and Λ changes the positions of the triple ZDWs.
The results of the laser field distribution in the PCFs show that all the structures are working in the single mode, while for the PCF3, the field are slightly extended toward the clad region at longer wavelength.

The research deals with using computer program in Arabic linguistic sciences through making it contribute in time economy in addition to its nature as a means of teaching and learning. A user of a computer can recognize the great difference and advantage that are gained through using computer, in comparison with books and references. A computer program is designed using Visual Basic language to display the information on a computer screen enabling it to have the same efficiency of books and references in collecting data and knowledge concerning basics of grammar which is one of Arabic linguistic sciences. A linguistic thesaurus is edited with a limited triple roots and grammatical formulae in addition to variability of its huge number which is a reason of its high grammatical productivity; the matter which gives a chance to minimize the capacity of storing it in data storage devices.
