A theoretical background concerning thestate kinship, tribe and tribal involvement in politics has been displayed with example of tribal power over people within the social context. Socio-anthropological method of data collection has been used, including a semi-structured interview with a sample of 120 correspondents. The outcome revealed that the feeble and corrupted state (government) play a vital role in encouraging the tribe to be dominant. The people of Iraq are clinging to the tribe regardless of whether they believe in it or not. Although they are aware that the tribe is a pre-state organisation and marred shape of civil society, they have no alternative since the weak government is incapable of restoring law and order. The feeble government is the main factor for tribal strength, the socio-political structure that yield from direct intervention of the invaders and divided the community into fractions, subcultures, religious and ethnic groups creates paralysed socio-political system that incapable to activate law and order, the tribe in turn fill the government power vacancy and enforce its own law and order. Unfortunately, the tribe misuse the power because its rules out of date, but after all, the people reluctantly rely on the tribe entity for protection.</p> Fajir Jodah Alwan ##submission.copyrightStatement## Received 1/3/2020 Accepted 8/4/2020 2020-06-06 2020-06-06 31 2 1 16 The Role of School Administration on Academic Achievement in Khartoum International Institute for Arabic language: A Practical Study http://jcoeduw.uobaghdad.edu.iq/index.php/journal/article/view/1351 <p>School administration has an effective role in stimulating academic achievement, as it is the ideal regulation and activation of material and human power to achieve the goals of the educational process. This role has axes in the form of interests, aids, and specific procedures exercised by the school administration in improving the educational process, and assisting researchers in achieving the highest levels of academic achievement. This activation is achieved through stages of planning, organizing, coordinating, and evaluating.</p> <p>To achieve the aims of this research, the researcher pursued the descriptive analytical approach, which is considered one of the most appropriate approaches to the nature of this type of research. The questionnaire, as well, used a major tool of this approach to analyze the opinions of Arabic language teachers for non-native speakers. The research contained a theoretical and applied framework. The researcher presented in the theoretical framework the concept of school administration, its goals, characteristics, success criteria, elements, as well as an understanding of academic achievement, its components, and means of evaluation. As for the applied framework, it was represented in carrying out a field research in the research community - teachers of the Khartoum International Institute - through the questionnaire with a random sample, and then conducting statistical treatments and special interpretations to come out with a set of results and recommendations represented in thirteen results and six core recommendations</p> Mohammed Salih Abdallah Ali ##submission.copyrightStatement## Received 18/2/2020 Accepted 8/4/2020 2020-06-06 2020-06-06 31 2 17 40 The Educational and Psychological Problems of Distinguished Students http://jcoeduw.uobaghdad.edu.iq/index.php/journal/article/view/1352 <p>The present research aims at identifying the educational problems and psychological problems of distinguished students at the intermediate level. The research sample consists of (246) students who are randomly selected from four distinguished schools (2) in the Karkh\1 and (2) in the Rusafa\2.</p> <p>The researcher has constructed two scales for measuring the educational and psychological problems. She ensures the psychometric characteristics of the two scales. Alph-Cronbach and test-retest methodsare used to ensure reliability. Some statistical treatments are used to find out the aims of research. These treatments include the one-sample T-test, two independent samples T-test, and the Pearson correlation coefficient. The results show that the sample members do not have educational problems, while they suffer from psychological problems in a moderate degree. Furthermore, there are statistically significant differences in educational/psychological problems in general according to the gender variable in favor of males. The educational and psychological problems are arranged in descending order according to their percentage to identify the five most prominent educational problems as follows:</p> <p>The eighth problemweights(80)</p> <p>The sixth problem weights(68.67(</p> <p>The twelfth problem&nbsp; weights(68)</p> <p>The fourth problem&nbsp; weights(67.67)</p> <p>Sixteenth problem weights(66.33(</p> <p>The psychological problems are listed as follows:</p> <p>The twenty-sixth problem has reached (82.67 .(</p> <p>The eighteenth problem has reached (79.67(.</p> <p>The third problem&nbsp; has reached (78).</p> <p>The fifteenth problem has reached (77, 67).</p> <p>The eleventh problem has reached (76.33).</p> <p>The results show that there is a direct accelerated relationship between educational problems and psychological problems since the value of the correlation coefficient is (0.24).</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Intisar Kamal Qasim ##submission.copyrightStatement## Received 26/3/2020 Accepted 3/5/2020 2020-06-06 2020-06-06 31 2 41 60 Psychological Intentions in Hadiths http://jcoeduw.uobaghdad.edu.iq/index.php/journal/article/view/1353 <p>The present study aims to shed light on psychological intentions in some prophetic hadiths and present practical models and realistic applications that reveal the aim behind Prophet Mohammed’s actions and speech. This study relied on a descriptive and deductive approach. It included three demands. The first demand provided a glimpse of the theoretical and conceptual framework of psychological intentions and their most important classifications. The second request tackled the history of Makassed thought in the Prophet’s hadiths. The third requirement dealt with the presentation of the physical, mental, and psychological intentions in Sunnah. The results revealed that The Islamic religion seeks to achieve happiness for the human being in this world and hereafter. This leads to the spread of both psychological and societal peace. Hence, religion should be employed in what came for it. The study also concluded that it is necessary to choose the noble prophetic traditions since it stipulates the psychological values ​​and methods to return to the right path which are the Qur’an and Sunnah in light of the prevalence of current mental illnesses. The study reached many physical, mental and psychological purposes through inferring them from the Prophet‘s noble hadiths.</p> Anwar Zuhair Noori ##submission.copyrightStatement## Received 9/2/2020 Accepted 23/4/2020 2020-06-06 2020-06-06 31 2 61 84 Obese Women and Choosing Ready-made Clothes: Difficulties and Choices http://jcoeduw.uobaghdad.edu.iq/index.php/journal/article/view/1354 <p>Thisstudy aims to determine the specifications of obese women accordingto the heightand type of obesity.

This research aims to describe the classification method applied to the dataset of multiple types of images (Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images and non-SAR images). In such a classification, transfer learning was used followed by fine-tuning methods. Besides, pre-trained architectures were used on the known image database ImageNet. The model VGG16 was indeed used as a feature extractor and a new classifier was trained based on extracted features.The input data mainly focused on the dataset consist of five classes including the SAR images class (houses) and the non-SAR images classes (Cats, Dogs, Horses, and Humans). The Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) has been chosen as a better option for the training process because it produces a high accuracy. The final accuracy has reached 91.18% in five different classes. The results are discussed in terms of the probability of accuracy for each class in the image classification in percentage. Cats class got 99.6 %, while houses class got 100 %.Other types of classes were with an average score of 90 % and above.</p> Aseel Sami Ali MatheelEmaduldin Abdulmunem ##submission.copyrightStatement## Received 1/4/2020 Accepted 13/5/2020 2020-06-06 2020-06-06 31 2 156 171 Urban Security in Cities Planning http://jcoeduw.uobaghdad.edu.iq/index.php/journal/article/view/1364 <p>Cities have witnessed great changes since the planning of the first cities. This is due to the increase in population and problems in services that affect urban security. As such, urban security is directed and affected by the nature of city planning and the types of services. Besides, the kind of services plays an imminent place in providing urban security at all levels. Other factors that influence urban security can be limited to the increase of population, economic and social changes. This leads to losing urban control. This study will explore the historical chronology to identify weaknesses in urban planning since its dawn and reaching solutions to protect urban security. The importance of the research lies in achieving urban security in the city through planning after making a comprehensive study of the areas to the weakness and strength of the urban area, the result is to achieve an integrated urban environment that can provide the needs of the residents with all their activities and societal components, so the residents will no longer need to cover their needs or to resort to methods that may prejudice urban security in the city to meet their needs, or to help urban planning generate a crime in certain places of the city if the study of the spaces is not thoroughly studied.</p> Nagham Khalid Mohammed Hassan Luay Taha Mohammed ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-06-06 2020-06-06 31 2 172 186 A Critical Pragmatic Study of Racism as Conceptualized in the Glorious Quran http://jcoeduw.uobaghdad.edu.iq/index.php/journal/article/view/1358 <p>Racism changes its meaning, shape, purpose or function according to various factors such as time, place, motives, and backgrounds; among others. It seems, however, to have deep roots back in the history of mankind. Such a concept stems from a perceived difference with the other. It is fed by the feeling of being hierarchically superior in opposition to another party that is depicted as inferior. Since ancient times, racism is disguised in different forms and manifests itself on various levels. It is a truism that this ideology can be best presented via language.</p> <p>Due to its negative implication, racism lends itself to a critical kind of research.&nbsp; As such, this paper is a critical pragmatic investigation for this phenomenon as conceptualized in the Glorious Quran. Critical pragmatics focuses on how the pragmatic theories scrutinize the reflection of a negative issue in language where aspects of power or ideology are highlighted. These theories, in turn, provide the pragmatic strategies that underpin the illegitimate issue under investigation.</p> <p>This paper sets for itself the task of answering these questions: How is racism manifested in the Glorious Quran by the unbelievers? What are the pragmatic theories that are utilized to impart this notion? It aims at finding out the manifestations of racist ideology in the Glorious Quran and discovering the pragmatic theories utilized to convey racism. It is hypothesized that racism is realized explicitly and implicitly.</p> Wafaa Sahib Mehdi Muhammed ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-06-06 2020-06-06 31 2 1 18 Main Difficulties Faced by EFL Students in Language Learning http://jcoeduw.uobaghdad.edu.iq/index.php/journal/article/view/1359 <p><strong><em>M</em></strong>any undergraduate learners at English departments who study English as a foreign language are unable to speak and use language correctly in their post -graduate careers.&nbsp; This problem can be attributed to certain difficulties, which they faced throughout their education years that hinder their endeavors to learn. Therefore, this study aims to discover the main difficulties faced by EFL students in language learning and test the difficulty variable according to gender and college variables then find suitable solutions for enhancing learning.&nbsp; A questionnaire with 15 items and 5 scales were used to help in discovering the difficulties. The questionnaire was distributed to the selected sample of study which consists of 90 (male and female) students selected randomly from the 3<sup>rd</sup> and 4<sup>th</sup> year class levels at English departments from colleges of Languages and Education (Ibn-Rushd) at the University of Baghdad. The results of the study showed that EFL students face difficulties in language learning such as the role of society in discouraging English language learning, the learners’ shyness, which prevents them from speaking English in fear of making mistakes, lack of motivation, and the influence of class size and crowdedness. After analyzing the results, some recommendations and suggestions were presented to solve the problem and eliminate difficulties.</p> Hanan Dhia Alsalihi ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-06-06 2020-06-06 31 2 19 34 The Neurosis of Blackness and Psychological Trauma in Edward Albee's The Death of Bessie Smith http://jcoeduw.uobaghdad.edu.iq/index.php/journal/article/view/1360 <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;Edward Albee, as a playwright, indicates that art should be useful and have a message. Therefore, his work foregrounds and critically examines issues concerning the Neurosis of Blackness and psychological trauma. Albee uses cruelty of racism in reflecting psychological trauma and emotional abuse of American black identity in his plays. Race, social inequality, and gender still sustain to engender controversy audience consciously. Racial discrimination is one of the major issues that affect the American Society. Albee challenges and exposes the presumptive dreams of equality of American society and institutional racism. Therefore, one of the main problems of the twentieth century in America is skin color. It affects every phase of African Americans' life including self-concept and identity which are never resolved. In addition to outlining the reasons and origins of violence as a cause of white-dominated supremacy. In his, work Albee gives different insights and meanings to those elusive dreams showing that the consequences of such unfulfilled dreams are disappointment, despair, and death. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of psychological trauma and emotional abuse of the racial distinction in Edward Albee's The Death of Bessie Smith (1956) and its effect on the elusive dreams such the dream of turning white, liberty and equality of Afro-American.&nbsp;</p> Ienas Talib Naseef ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-06-06 2020-06-06 31 2 35 51 Schema Theory and Text- worlds: A Cognitive Stylistic Analysis of Selected Literary Texts http://jcoeduw.uobaghdad.edu.iq/index.php/journal/article/view/1362 <p><em>C</em>ognitive stylistics also well-known as cognitive poetics is a cognitive approach to language. This study aims at examining literary language by showing how Schema Theory and Text World Theory can be useful in the interpretation of literary texts. Further, the study attempts to uncover how readers can connect between the text world and the real world. Putting it differently, the study aims at showing how the interaction between ‘discourse world’ and ‘text world’. How readers can bring their own experience as well as their background knowledge to interact with the text and make interpretive connections. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Schema and text world theories are useful tools in cognitive stylistic studies. The reader's perception of a particular text world depends on her/his existing schema during the process of interpretation. The selected texts for the study are "Strange Meeting" by Wilfred Owen, "In Winter" by Corbett Harrison and the opening passage of David Lodge's <em>novel Changing Places</em> which are intended to show how the two theories can be integrated to account for the way in which text worlds are perceived. So as a result, readers start establishing meaning based on their schemata and these meanings change through adding a new one. The cognitive ability to understand literary texts and how readers build mind worlds is a crucial aim in cognitive poetics. An in-depth cognitive stylistic analysis reveals significant points about reading and interpreting the selected literary texts by providing a way of thinking about background knowledge and how the individual's experience would influence their interpretation and viewing of the &nbsp;text world.</p> Eman Adil Jaafar ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-06-06 2020-06-06 31 2 52 52
