Several of organizations aim at attracting high and comprehensive satisfaction of the customers. This can be done through developing the performance and to do better jobs to satisfy the customers' needs to overcome competitive. The organization that may depend on the customer satisfaction becomes an expert in customers forming and not only in forming goods and services. This is due to the fact that if a customer is slightly satisfied, s/he will be simply deviated to other offers; unlike highly satisfied customers who will be less deviated to other offers and organizations of better services.

It also explains the theoretical junctures among the hampers, ethics and rules of benchmarking. Achieving the targets, analytical description has been drawn to show the theoretical principles as well as seeing the probable phenomena of violating ethical standards. The study is expected to discuss five aspects; the first has reviewed a literature on the concepts of ethical standards of businesses. The second has referred to the concepts and ethics of quality management as well. The third has showed however the quality ethics of benchmarking. Fourth has finally debated the opportunities of violations in the rules of benchmarking and the methods of limitations. The research then concluded into a gist of ideas to accomplish the analytical aspects

Services emerged in different societies as common phenomenon nowadays. The direction toward reducing expenditure on consumption goods is faced by increasing the expenditure on other services in the stereotypical life. Likewise the global direction toward marketing is however spotted to concern the services that are %70 of individual income are expended on different services. These services included medical treatment; insurance with different aspects, education, tourism and annual test for all healthy person in Europe, the needs which comes from the social requirements that involves medical check services for marriage to the immunization in general.

The research aims at studying the effect of the changes in currency offer in the financial markets. This has been done in a selected sample of the Arab Gulf Countries via using Granger Causality (GC) and Vector Auto Regression (VAR) tests.
The results of the Causally Test showed that there is a causative relation whatsoever between the change in the currencies offer and the market value of stocks. The results of Causality Test have emphasized the validity of results gained from Auto Regression after determining the best model according to the results of (AIC) standard. It has been shown that the market value for the stocks can be affected by the changes of various values in money offer. This may agree with the hypothesis of the research that demonstrating the change in money offers over the market value of stocks.

Poverty is considered as a complex phenomenon that has economic, social and political serious dimensions. Further, poverty is not restricted to special geographical area or periods. Therefore, if the problem of poverty aggravates and is not tackled properly, it will lead to negative repercussions that might threat the society as a whole.
The sample of the study restricted to two residential collectives; considers that the majority of those people are emigrants from their destroyed villages or they are forcibly expelled from Kirkuk Governorate. For these reasons, poverty is expected to be a dominant characteristic in the area under consideration. So, the current study aims at measuring poverty indices which might help programs that are designed to reduce the poverty severity. Hence, the study employed objective methods to measure extreme, absolute, relative and subjective poverty.
Generally speaking, the results show that the degree of poverty is not relatively severe as one might think in the area under consideration. The result suggests that the United Nations' resolution 986 (oil for food) positively affected in the reduction of poverty. Finally, the research recommends useful suggestions that might serve to better overcome poverty in the area considered.

An increasing interest in studying the time series has been recently regarded. One of the potential methods in analyzing the time series and forecasting the future values is the adaptive filtering. A modern method of analyzing time series is the artificial networks in forecasting. The purpose of current paper is to compare the adaptive filtering ARMA(p,q) model with Back propagation neural networks. The mean square error, mean absolute error and mean absolute percentage has been adopted as a statistical criteria mean to find the best one and get a good result. Application was done on alive births of males' data of Mosul city using ANNs, and AF techniques.

Economic freedom is expected to be one of the most fundamental bases of any global economic system, whatever economic philosophy was. As any economic system, Islamic economy has embarked on giving a great potential to the economic freedom. The Islamic economy has put rules of interdiction to organize the limits of this sort of freedom. Thus, undoubtedly rules of interdiction have been regarded to achieve individual and collective interests as well as both targets similarly. They also achieve economic and social welfare for all individuals of the society and the economic progress and development progressively.

In current research, one of scientific methods to discriminate between populations will be treated. This can be done by using (Matlab) program to transfer digital photo to a digital form, after that photo has been treated as an independent population, then we analyzed data and compare the results. It is important to imitate them by using canonical discriminate function to classify digital photos that will give us a new way of facilitation search. However, after we transferred it to the digital form, we depend on a higher eigenvector who is corresponding higher eigenvalue. This one according to the number of population we dial with it. In this research, we considered four populations, and every population is digital photo we transferred it to data by using (Matlab) program, symbolic every population depending on the canonical discriminate. We depended on many program (SPSS, Minitab, S-Plus, Matlab) to get the result of three higher eigenvalue which corresponding three higher eigenvector for (A) Matrix. The final steps assimilation has been demonstrated to get three canonical discriminate functions to discriminate between digital photos which facilitate the eigenvector for (A) matrix, and the resulted as the flowing, discriminate between digital photos in the first canonical discriminate function which is the best one. The second rank is the second canonical discriminate function; in the last stage is the third canonical discriminate function.

This current research aims at determining the definition of quality and dimensions; as well as realizing the product as one of the most potential requirements of ISO9001-2000. It also aims at analyzing the relationships that hold these dimensions.
Acuity of competition has however motivated several organizations to seek certain advantages in order to upraise the opportunity of success in local and international markets. As a result attention has been increased toward studying debating the equipments of customers needs and responding them in time with appropriate price and quality.
As for the great importance of ISO in many several organizations according to bulks and frameworks as well the degree of contribution to reach the quality standards, the organizations are nowadays striving to acquire the best quality standards via using ISO. This is done in order to apply the requirements of ISO, increase the quality of products and competing in the local markets.
So, the current research is however an attempt to acknowledge the relations among quality dimensions that has been used in the search and acquiring product. Hence, it can adopt the most influential relations that will lead to increase the purchasing in comparison with a similar organization then reaching the desired objectives.
