With the increase in urbanization and degradation of the urban environment, sanitation is becoming a predominant challenge within the short run. High-resolution satellite imagery gives the first conception of polluted drainage sites, whether by the river or in residential areas. This helps in studying the seriousness of pollutants and their causes. The main objective of this research was to evaluate the pollutants in wastewaters received at pump stations in Al-Kut city in Wasit governorate, Iraq by using GIS data and techniques. . These were in addition to, evaluating the quality of sewer network in one of the highly polluted areas and propose the most suitable location for the establishment of a wastewater treatment unit. Collected three samples of water in the following months: February, March and April in 2017. Samples were analyzed for (BOD, COD, PO4-, NO2-, NO3-, TDS, TSS, H2S, and EC). The spatial distribution of these pollutants within the studied area was carried out using Ordinary Kriging (OK). The results revealed an increase in the concentrations of the studied pollutants when compared with Iraqi standards. The mean concentrations were: 247.54, 8.96, 0.59, 2.92, 1557.58, 232.79, 21.55, 2164.58, and 283.63 mg l-1 for BOD, PO4-, NO2-, NO3-, TDS, TSS, H2S, EC and COD, respectively.The results revealed that the sewer network in Al-Anwar area complies with the international standards regarding to pipe slopes and flow velocity. Finally, a multi-criteria model was also used to propose the most suitable location for the establishment of a treatment unit in Al-Kut city. That model took into account the type of land use, wind direction, and proximity to main sewer lines, main streets, electricity lines and residential areas. It was found that the location in the east side of the city has the best conditions for establishing that waste water treatment unit.

Abstract: The study aims to achieve the best returns, particularly, the volatility of prices for financial assets. We will attempt to find a way to determine the best buying and selling when the price of the asset is subject to mean- reverting model. This model deals with the price that balance and stationarity. We will use stochastic and numerical algorithm to get the best price for buying and selling. The sample of the study (hotels, industry, communications), which includes (8) companies listed in the Iraqi market selected for the period (1/1 / 2015-30 / 6/2018). To make the hypotheses of the study, the two statistical programs (R Maple) were used. The study resulted in several conclusions: The random algorithm used in our study is a method that does not need to determine the distribution of the price variable. The advantages of prices using the random algorithm are relatively less than the price advantages using the numerical algorithm. This is what distinguishes the random algorithm. The few benefits indicate that the financial market is balanced and efficient and that prices are subject to market mechanism and supply and demand forces In it, in light of this Conclusions reached a set of recommendations including: the adoption of random algorithm in the Iraqi market for securities because they achieved a reasonable profit margin and ease of implementation by the dealers and researchers because they rely on the daily stock price only.

Abstract: The electronic spectra within UV‌‌-Vis region for benzene (C6H6) and Carbone tetrachloride (CCl4) molecules have been studied. Since Benzene molecule belongs to D6h point group, with very high symmetry elements, therefore it may be expected for its internal vibrations to be either infrared or Raman active only. The spectral properties of (CCl4) are also have been studied. This (CCl4) belongs to Td point group, where its fundamental internal vibrations will be also, infrared or Raman actives. These aspects will be considered and discussed in this work.
