Often when attending companies are close to local communities through their social responsibilities towards local communities in all cities around the world and there is a witness today experiences created cities where entire regions contain certain wealth. Because Iraq is a country aware of the importance of international companies because of a huge amount of different wealth and which can make it economically in the eighth tiger world, so we must be careful in this joint through which we can improve the reality of local communities.

Iraq is in dire need for institutions to realize Maalaha of duties to the local community , whether through employment or projects that support the local community within the geographical area of the place of work. Here must be in foreign banks by the accounts allocated percentage of their profits to serve social benefits, to be close to the local community and its doors are wide open in front of the beneficiaries, but to this day has not Nwcr one ad in the local media alerts to foreign banks in Iraq that provide services to customers.

    Experts: float the currency needs to be a productive economy and not Rieia 22/05/2017 Specialists show in economic and financial affairs strong rejection of the proposals ,which proposes to float the Iraqi dinar to reduce its value for the US dollar, and stress the importance of changing the balance of payments deficit and adjust if it, in favor of the opinion of the financial advisor to Prime Minister Dr. The appearance of Mohammed Saleh, Mahdhir cut the Iraqi dinar value of what could result in this economic and financial security crises. Does not believe d. Saleh in an interview (term) that would reduce the value of the dinar to fill the budget deficit, but in return will contribute to the creation of expectations of inflation and unrest price , raising the cost to the budget itself, especially variable costs Kalmquaolat, procurement and contracts in foreign currency and the value of imports of the state. He adds Saleh: Yes , the reduction in the exchange rate of the dinar could leave traces in the promotion of exports, but because of the weak diversification of the economy makes the reduction that leaves scars similar to those experienced by the limited classes of income economic blockade time in the nineties of the last century, especially if the reduction of high rates . And it corresponds to the benefit of opinion with the view of the head of the IMF mission in Iraq , Christian coconut in an interview earlier (range), where he stressed that the Fund believes it is appropriate to maintain the linking of the Iraqi dinar in US dollars, since the devaluation of the currency does not bring a great benefit to the economy as some believe , but It may cause a sharp increase in inflation. For his part , says economist Ahmed Hussein said in an interview (range): I support the view of the financial adviser to the prime minister, that he no room to talk in light of the current situation on the reduction of the local currency, especially as security, economic and political situation , which is going through the country confirms that it is not the Iraqi economy and the interests of the Central Bank of the interest of the devaluation of the dinar against the dollar. He adds Hussein: to float the currency now in Iraq can not talk about that simple, as needed to advance measures ... it could be done if the transformation of the Iraqi economy from a yield to productive, in the sense to expand the productive base begins Iraq to change the balance of payments from the case of the deficit to the case of surplus, and this must be backed by big al - Qaeda production, only here we can talk about reducing the value of local currency against the dollar, because we are in time we will have a production base based on the economy, therefore , be the Iraqi currency is a protected national product. Saleh, criticized calls for lowering the value of the Iraqi dinar against the US dollar, stressing the seriousness of the Iraqi economy. As he pointed out to the presence of actors and personalities working to promote the idea of the deterioration of the exchange rate of the Iraqi dinar and bring about a deterioration in the standard of living and hit stability in order to impose emergency cash tax affecting all segments of the people, which is inflation, and the creation of a deliberate deterioration of the standard of living in order that the state clog some deficits without to think about the management of revenues from outside oil revenues. The promotion of topics argumentative economic incomplete eligibility at the time of the war that the country is waging against terrorism and take it is a desperate attempt of a group of haters who want to weaken the state and the rumor of despair, there is ignorance programmed the Iraqi street process to spread the spirit of despair, we should be wary of agendas promoted by forces driven by suspicious negative in the positive financial conditions is a victory and get out of the neck of the bottle, as well as the military victory and liberate the land and man from the clutches of terrorism. It indicates the general federal budget law in one of its paragraphs to the central bank 's commitment to identifying sales of hard currency ( the dollar) in the daily auction ceiling does not exceed 75 million dinars a day with the exercise of justice in the sales process, and calls for the participant in the auction bank to provide goods enter documents and data tax settling accounts and savings Alkmarki within 30 days from the date of purchase amount and otherwise applied to the bank penalties stipulated in the Central Bank Act or regulations issued from it, and the use of other banking instruments so as to maintain the strength of the dinar against the dollar. http://www.almadapaper.net/ar/news/530227/%D8%AE%D8%A8%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%A1-%D8%AA%D8%B9%D9%88%D9%8A%D9%85-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B9%D9%85%D9%84%D8%A9-%D9%8A%D8%AD%D8%AA%D8%A7%D8%AC-%D8%A5%D9%84%D9%89-%D8%A7%D9%82%D8%AA%D8%B5%D8%A7%D8%AF-%D8%A5%D9%86%D8%AA%D8%A7

Which leads to increase the effectiveness of activities varied banking. Vtm issuing the plastic card as the first form of bank card and then taken to evolve depending on the developments that have occurred in the quality of banking services, as well as the development in the security field to avoid intrusion, fraud, theft and access to bank accounts operations, even reached modern technology to what is known today as the smart card.

So it took smart cards spread spectacularly across the world because of its success in the reduction of many credit activities and provided many advantages in the local daily transactions and international. Tried many Iraqi banks in the recent use of smart card banking transactions were contracted with a number of smart card companies in the world such as Albzenz card and Visa card and ironing card ... etc., but it is striking that the product ironing card company is the most prevalent in among the population of retirees and employees, and this confirms the fact that this company well received among the public and private institutions in Iraq because of the company 's efficiency in attracting customers as well as the establishment of data with public institutions base in order to facilitate the flow of cash between banking institutions and , in fact , should t Diversification of smart cards companies in order to create a competitive environment that is working to provide better services to customers. The idea of using the smart card is in order not made using liquid cash directly in the completion of daily transactions only through them, ie they act on behalf of the use of money that can be difficult to carry and promise as well as the risks involved. Thus , the smart card has provided the time, effort and cost of all client parties and this is the best use of it, but that what is happening today in Iraq is the most smart card users Ptnqad balance that it contains the card in order to complete the daily dealings of individuals, and this is to use non - optimal for those card Perhaps the blame rests not with the customer only because it is not familiar with the importance and uses of that card, but there is a failure by most of the banking institutions in adopting continuous awareness campaigns through the media channels of the importance of the use of the smart card and what is the best use of it, as well as Presbyopia The spread of electronic sales points in most commercial centers, which led the final outcome to the indifference of individuals in the use of the card smart. http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=137546

    yahoo.com Could Breast Milk Be the Next Cancer Treatment? Marie Claire Dorking Yahoo Beauty May 16, 2017 The health benefits of breast milk have long been touted, but experts are now testing whether a compound found in mother’s milk could help treat cancer. The accidental discovery of the effects of a breast milk compound, nicknamed “Hamlet” by scientists, could mean a more effective and targeted way to kill cancerous tumor cells. Researchers from the University of Lunt in Sweden have revealed some positive results after studying the effects Hamlet has on bladder cancer patients. In the early trials, those injected with the compound began to shed dead tumor cells through their urine within days. “There’s something magical about Hamlet’s ability to target tumor cells and kill them,” Dr. Catharina Svanborg told the Daily Mail. But the discovery came completely by accident while the team was researching antibiotics. “We were looking for novel antimicrobial agents, and new breast milk is a very good source of these,” Svanborg continued. “During one experiment we needed human cells and bacteria to be present, and we chose human tumor cells for practical reasons.” “To our amazement,” she added, “when we added this compound of milk, the tumor cells died. It was a totally serendipitous discovery.” Researchers believe that a reaction takes place with breast milk when it hits the gut. It produces a protein called alpha-lactalbumin, which targets cancer cells. The breast milk compound targets cancer cells alone, offering an alternative to chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments, which can damage both healthy and cancerous cells in the body. The scientists hope the breast milk compound could also help bowel and cervical cancer patients. A trial of the Hamlet substance against a placebo is currently being planned to test the promising benefits of the compound. https://www.yahoo.com/beauty/breast-milk-latest-cancer-treatment-161252298.html?soc_src=mail&soc_trk=ma

    US pressure for a long-term survival in the post-Iraq Daesh? May 20, 2017 The Washington Times revealed talks in Baghdad between Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and US officials, dealt with the conclusion of an agreement guaranteeing the survival of US forces in Iraq for a long time. The newspaper said that the planned agreement, which dealt with the legal and diplomatic standards, aims to provide a political cover-Abadi to face opponents of a long-term US presence in Iraq. The Associated Press news agency quoted a former Iraqi official and another US time as saying that the talks, which took place early in May / May is still the current list. The US newspaper quoted a former leader of the US Department of Defense (Pentagon) Eric Edelman, said Thursday that his country might need more than twenty thousand of its troops in Iraq, after the expected defeat organized Daesh and the completion of the Battle of Mosul. Edelman said that Abadi may give up the parliamentary procedure vote on any military agreement with the United States, pointing out that he had entered into such an agreement through executive action. It is anticipated that the definition of being American soldiers as advisors to avoid a request for parliamentary approval of the agreement, according to the agency Associated Press. The Abadi met in March / last March in Washington, President Donald Trump, who confirmed his commitment to a strategic partnership with Baghdad, also met in April / April last Mike Pence, Vice President. The Washington Times noted the United States need to keep thousands of troops, and other staff of the US Army in Iraq in post-organizing Daesh. He added Edelman - who served under former President George W. Bush in one of the interviews, four to eight thousand US troops may be enough to help local Iraqi security forces to maintain security in Mosul after the expulsion Daesh of them. But he pointed to the possible deployment of US military advisers to work rather than combat troops, in order to support the Iraqi police and army forces. We are saying: We are dealing with the organization of Daesh, which has become weak dramatically, after nearly two years against the ongoing war waged by Iraqi forces and Kurdish Peshmerga forces, the US-backed. The Washington Times said that there needed about five thousand to twenty thousand US military to support Iraqi forces for the continuation of retaining their positions in the squares of traditional battles against al-Daesh, as well as to hunt down the remnants of the organization within this strategy. She explained that US and Iraqi officials say that the majority of Daesh lost territory dominated by Iraq, and is also confirming the loss of the Iraqi capital, represented in Mosul. , However, saying: But the organization Daesh may return to the way a guerrilla war, and the US military presence is an urgent need to ensure that the return of Iraq to the bloodshed. The Chief of Staff of the US Joint Chiefs of General Joe Dunford, had said last Wednesday, on board the plane that return from a meeting of NATO in Brussels that NATO "can be in an excellent position to carry out the task of training" Iraqi forces "over a long period." Dunford said that the Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, it was announced that Iraqi forces could continue to need support after the victory over Daesh but without specifying the demands formally. . Dunford He added that the alliance could provide the Iraqi army "logistical assistance and equipment and capacity development and training of cadres and the establishment of academies." But he said that the task of providing guidance to the Iraqi forces will remain the prerogative of the international coalition forces against the organization "Daesh". In total the Washington Post commented that "The issue is sensitive in Iraq, where he insisted Abadi this month that there will be no combat troops in Iraq after the defeat of the organization Daesh Although the two sides said that there is continuity of talks on a long-term role of the US military in the country." http://www.al-mawqif.com/57221
