TL;DR: The aim of the researcher was to determine the effectiveness of artificial intelligence techniques against cyber security risks particularly in case of Iraq and the quantitative method of research design along with primary data was opted.
Abstract: The aim of the researcher was to determine the effectiveness of artificial intelligence techniques against cyber security risks particularly in case of Iraq, Researcher has opted for quantitative method of research design along with primary data. The researcher collected the data from employees working in this IT industry. The sample size for this study was 468 and confirmatory factor analysis, discriminant validity, basic analysis of model and lastly, hypothesis assessment was carried out. The P-values of all variables were obtained as significant apart from expert system which had no significant relation with artificial intelligence and cyber security. Geographical area, sample size, less variables and accessibility was the main issue.

TL;DR: A novel approach to defuzzify fuzzy numbers using a modification of center of gravity COG method with multi-objective linear programming (LP) model to find the appropriate crisp value that satisfies all relationships and minimise the distance among this value and all values in the interval of fuzzy numbers.
Abstract: The base of traffic management is the reliable and real-time traffic flow predictions. A fuzzy multi-objective defuzzification method has been suggested for improving the capability of traffic flow prediction. On the basis of such method solving a transportation problem to predict the traffic flow. In the case when indicated values are not satisfying the relations, each one of the values has been adjusted till satisfying the relation. The presented paper is providing a novel approach to defuzzify fuzzy numbers using a modification of center of gravity COG method with multi-objective linear programming (LP) model. This method presented the observed values as triangular fuzzy numbers and the crisp values are found in the interval of each fuzzy number. The objective is to find the appropriate crisp value that satisfies all relationships and minimise the distance among this value and all values in the interval of fuzzy numbers by partitioning each interval into sub-intervals. The application related to the suggested approach is showed in solving transportation problem, as well as compare with one of the previous methods is also presented. The resulted crisp value appears as the best solution or optimal solution to the problem.

TL;DR: The first report of BPV-1 infection in the Iraqi cattle is presented and contributes to extending the knowledge of the origin of the spread of this disease.
Abstract: This study aimed to provide the first molecular characterization of bovine papillomavirus type 1 (BPV-1) in Iraq. BPV is a widely spread oncogenic virus in Iraqi cattle and is associated with the formation of both benign and malignant lesions, resulting in notable economic losses in dairy and beef cattle. In the current study, 140 cutaneous papilloma specimens were collected from cattle in central Iraq. These samples were submitted to histopathological examination, PCR, and sequencing analysis. The histopathology revealed that the main lesion type among the specimens was fibropapilloma. BPV-1 DNA was detected in 121 of the samples (86.42%) in Iraqi cattle as the main causative agent for the disease. A partial sequence for the E2, L2 genes, and complete sequence for the E5 gene were deposited in GenBank. Phylogenetic analysis confirmed the presence of BPV-1 and showed that the origin of infection may be imported European cattle. Obtaining a complete E5 gene sequence enabled us to perform structural predictions. This study presents the first report of BPV-1 infection in the Iraqi cattle and contributes to extending the knowledge of the origin of the spread of this disease. The results of this study will aid in the development of appropriate control measures and therapeutic strategies.

Abstract: Municipal solid waste materials are growing worldwide due to human consumption. Nowadays, a different type of goods on large-scale is produced in the factories which is going to generate numerous amount of solid waste materials in the near future. Therefore, the management of these solid waste materials is a great concern around the world. Inadequate landfill, environmental pollution and its financial burden on relevant authorities, recycling and utilization of waste materials have a significant impact compared to disposing them. Studies have been done to reuse of waste materials as one of the elements of concrete composites. Each of the elements gives the concrete strength; however, the reuse of these wastes not only makes the concrete economical and sustainable, but also helps in decreasing environmental pollution. There are a number of different types of waste materials such as plastics, carpets, steels, tires, glass, and several types of ashes. In this paper, a comprehensive review was carried out on the influence of recycled plastic fibers (RPFs), recycled carpet fibers (RCFs) and recycled steel fibers (RSFs) on the fresh, mechanical and ductility properties of concrete. The previous studies were investigated to highlight the effects of these waste product fibers on the most important concrete properties such as slump, compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, flexural strength, modulus of elasticity, ultrasonic pulse velocity, energy absorption, ductility, and toughness. In this regard, more than 200 published papers were collected, and then the methods of preparation and properties of these recycled fibers (RF) were reviewed and analyzed. Moreover, empirical models using mechanical properties were also developed. As a result, RPFs, RCFs and RSFs could be used safely in concrete composites due to it is satisfactory fresh, physical and mechanical properties.

Abstract: A series of new binary and ternary platinum(II) complexes of the type [Pt(L1-4)Cl2].xH2O and [Pt(L1-4)ox].xH2O where L = formamidine ligands and ox = oxalate, have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses, magnetic susceptibility, UV–vis, infrared (IR), mass spectroscopy, thermal analysis and theoretical calculations. The spectroscopic data indicated that the formamidine ligands act as bidentate N2 donors. The complexes (1–8) are diamagnetic and the optimization of their structures indicated that the geometry is distorted square planar with Cl–Pt–Cl, O–Pt–O and N–Pt–N bond angles ranged 81.73°–95.82° which is acceptable for the heteroleptic complexes. The electronic energies (a.u.) of the complexes (−893.53 to −1989.84) indicate that the complexes are more stable than the ligands. The energies of the HOMO (−0.218 to −0.244) and LUMO (−.0111to −0.134) orbitals of the complexes were negative which indicates that the complexes are stable compounds. The dipole moment of the complexes (6.23–19.89 Debye) indicates that the complexes are polarized. The complexes are thermally stable as shown from their relatively higher overall activation energies (889–2066 kJ mol-1). The complexes are proved to have a good cytotoxicity with IC50 (μM) against MCF-7 (0.040–0.117), HCT-116 (0.085–0.119) and HepG-2 (0.058–0.131) cell lines, which open the field for further application as antitumor compounds.
