The intricacies surrounding element of consolidation in international development leaves much room for doubt. The contention resides on certain efforts upon which many reforms, systems, theories, ideologies and philosophies like the Marshal Plan have been implemented on the international arena. Therefore, the concept of globalization in the economic affairs of states around the world most especially in developing nations has become a great concern. The results of economic development in many developing countries are constrained by debt crisis, external loan, unequal exchange, marginalization and exploitation in the structural economic system of the world directed by the Britton Wood Institutions. This paper, in order to dissect its intent adopts a content-based analysis cum historical perspective on how the world economic system in generating “global wealth” has affected economic life of developing countries. Nigeria was used as the reference point depicting its integrated economic life in global world. Study found out that the global economic system is full of unequal exchange detrimental to developing countries in Africa, most especially Nigeria. Hence, the paper recommends that globalization processes should be holistically reviewed to support rather than constraint development of the weaker states. Pages 22 to 36

 Religious Education on Heavenly Inspiration and Intellectual Contribution to the Composition of Paradise Lost

SeyedehZahra Nozena, Bahman Amanib, Mohammad Hossein GoharRostamic, a Department of English, Amin Police Science University, b Department of English Language and Literature, Khazar University, c MA Malayer University, Email: aresearch.university1@police.irbbamani@khazar.orgcRostamifx.78@gmail.com

Production of a big work of Literature is not a task which can be dealt with by a single person. Grandness of the epic is so much that it is out of reach of a single person to undertake. There is an idea of a ‘mass’ behind a single thought as Virginia Woolf puts it in A Room of One's Own. Great thinkers and literary figures unanimously believe that human thinking is in nature a collective act, meaning that authors use the ideas and hints of their precursors and contemporaneous authors. Cooperation is the very essential need to be met; therefore, it is highly unlikely that Paradise Lost as a grand epic has been written by Milton singlehandedly. This fact can be elaborated on the term ‘shared intentionality’ proposed by thinkers which refers to collaborative interactions in which participants share psychological states with one another. One can say that texts are not produced out of void, but there are intricate networks of prior texts behind shaping them, consequently communal thinking is traceable either directly or indirectly in a particular text. Context of society in that time, Milton’s religiosity and his affinity with Protestantism, and the impact of his blindness, as it has been affirmed by loads of critics including T. S. Eliot, is other key factors in the process of the epic composition. Milton also received the inspiration and hints from different contemporary figures including John Donne, Spenser, Marvell and his child acquaintance Charles Diodati. So both manly and heavenly influences that could have had the impact on Milton are worthy to be wondered about. Pages 37 to 43

The prime objective of the current study is to investigate the link between TQM, human oriented elements and the organizational performance. The satisfaction, commitment, and loyalty are considered as human oriented elements. The TQM is accessed as a determinate of the organizational performance. In addition to that, the current study has examined the mediating role of human oriented elements in the relationship between TQM and organizational performance in the higher education institutes of Thailand. The structural equation model is employed to analyse the structural model and structural relation among measured and latent variables. It analyses the direct and indirect association among variables. The SEM-AMOS is used, and the results of the study have provided a great deal of agreement with the hypothesized results. It is evident that the youth and graduate from Thailand tertiary institutions are not prepared with the skills with which to exploit and judicially utilized the endowed natural resources in the country. These and other reasons have rendered the attainment of self-reliance and entrepreneurship education among the teaming graduates difficult to maintain. This study has focused on the subjective measure of organizational performance including information gathering in problem solving/communication, faculty intellectual pursuits, achievement and development among staff and students, achieving academic excellence through quality adherence and feedback among others. The study which is among pioneering studies will be helpful for policymakers, educationist and researchers and student in understanding the issues in the higher education sector of Thailand.

The current study has concentrated on Hillary Clinton’s diplomatic political ideology that positions her towards the Muslim community. The study aims to examine, and pin point the self-other representations that are evident in the form of explicit and implicit Islamophobia in Hillary’s speech delivered at Council of Foreign Relations during the American Presidential Elections of 2016. In order to examine these discourses towards Muslims, the research engaged with Critical Discourse Studies as its framework, with a specific focus upon Van Dijk’s Ideological Square Model along with NVivo 12 Plus for linguistic inquiry of the speech. The results showed that the self-other binary is strongly evidenced in Hillary’s sampled speech where she employed various discursive techniques to represent ISIS-Iraq-Syria-Libya negatively, while representing herself as very patriotic to the country. To legitimatize her implicit Islamophobic arguments, she deployed several rhetoric strategies, including victimization, presupposition, authority, number game, evidentiality, populism by creating a polarization of Self-Other against ISIS-Syria-Libya.

Learning about character through the traditional game of urang banjar is one of the innovations that stimulates children's development, through various natural media by utilizing the natural environment. Traditional games contain noble values and certain moral messages such as the value of togetherness, honesty, responsibility, cooperation, self-control, grace, encouragement to achieve, and obey the rules. The purpose of this paper is to find out how to develop character learning through the use of traditional games. The method used is based on a literature study on the traditional game of urang banjar, which is full of culture, national values, and elements that are useful for children's development. The traditional game needs to be preserved so that the values contained in it can become the cultural heritage of the Indonesian generation and the basic stimulation of character building that is responsive to the times without being deprived of its cultural identity. Implanting moral values to character learning cannot just happen without a consistent process. Therefore, the moral message in traditional games is only one of the contributions to the introduction of cultural values as arable land outside the home and school environment. Pages 172 to 180

Abdulwahab Mohammed Jawad AL.musawi a, Hanaa Saad Shebibb Hanan AbdulKhidhr AL.musawyc, Heider Nima Bekheetd,

a,b,c,dFaculty of Administration and Economics, University of Kufa,

It is clear to specialists that Iraq's economy has experienced and continues to experience many problems. Most notably,  it is a rentier economy, and it lacks the of diversity of sources of income due to its almost absolute dependence on the production and exportation of crude oil, and the decline of most other productive sectors to contribute to the composition of the gross domestic product (GDP). which enhanced its chronic structural imbalances. It has also caused growing unemployment and poverty levels, poor income distribution, accumulated balance of payment deficits, staying in the non-indebtedness circle, and other factors that have contributed effectively to the decline in the development indicators. It is no secret that financial and administrative corruption is prevalent in the country, and its impacts have extended to include the different economic and social levels of the country. It is known that corruption in Iraq is not a new thing, but it has increased remarkably after the fall of the former regime for various reasons, which contributed as a major cause to faltering development processes, which could have been achieved at high rates to commensurate with the size of the resources, and the natural, economic and human capabilities possessed by Iraq. However, the rampant corruption, confusion in policies and unplanned governmental programs, which is not mature because it is based on the concept of achieving private gains at the expense of public interest, in addition to the legitimization of some aspects of the corruption by the political class, and the complexity between the halls of the legislative and executive authorities, led to generating a disability in addressing the deficit in the economic file in an optimal way that could enable Iraq to achieve its development goals in a sustainable manner. The study aims to shed light on the size of economic and social impacts that corruption has had on the development reality in Iraq, and learning the size of corruption using a number of indicators that have been adopted in this area in order to develop appropriate solutions to eliminate this phenomenon, and then reactivate the role of economic policies and programs that would promote Iraq economy and achieve its desired goals.

 Estimating the Volume of Monthly Deposits to Meet Expected Financial Withdrawals a Practical Study on a Sample of Iraqi Private Sector Banks

Ahmed Miri Ahmeda, aTechnical College of Management /Kufa, Al-Furat Al-Awsat Technical University,31003 Al-Kufa,Iraq,

The private sector banks are no longer isolated from the government banking sector because they have attracted many of their clients with capital that has encouraged them to enter a competitive environment that offers their banking services, especially after the transformation of the economic system in Iraq after 2003. It is no secret that bank deposits are one of the main sources of banking capital. The investment of the bank is through its employment in entering projects and services that lead to an increase in its revenues and hence its profits, as well as to meet the requirements of the banking business to fulfil its obligations to their customers. Therefore, the importance of this study has emerged through the competitive role played by these banks, and thinking about how to share market shares to remain in the banking environment and grow their financial capabilities. The study aims to adopt the administrations of these banks on scientific methods in rationalizing the decisions regarding the management of financial resources away from using intuition. A detailed analysis of the volume of cash deposits was conducted in the light of the data obtained for the sample of the private banking sector of Iraq for five banks of the governorates (Najaf, Karbala, Qadisiyah, Babel, Methane) during the period of 2010-2018 using many statistical methods. The study concluded with a number of conclusions, the most important of which is the adoption of the study sample by the banks' management. This is done using the Markov chains method in determining the future indicators regarding the size of the future cash deposits, and the transitional probability matrix which is the basis for the estimation and calculation of the expected cash deposits for customers. The study came out with a number of recommendations, the most important of which is the preparation of the necessary software requirements for this purpose,  (Aminita v.17, spss, Amos v.18, QSC win), especially when the bank faces a major challenge in the face of the large size of cash deposits and how to expect them for longer periods of time.
