Professor Dinard    Iraq votes in first elections since ISIL defeat

Poll expected to be a referendum on PM Haider al-Abadi's tenure and his pledge to be more inclusive of Sunni minority.

 Professor Dinard  The low turnout was partly blamed on a 24-hour curfew put in place by the government since midnight, which was partially lifted by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi later in the day.

Blossom    Hi ya all I just spoke to my friend in Iraq. He mentioned the election. I asked him if Abadi was a good man? He said no! They are all corrupt?

Zig    Is your friend named BREW?

Blossom    He is in the Iraqi army. He lives in Babylon...

Zig    Blossom : Do you think he would consider coming into the chat?
​Professor Dinard    would like to visit there some day. home to one of the oldest known civilizations in the world. farming was considered to be created there right?

 Professor Dinard     Mesopotamia had already enjoyed a long history prior to the emergence of Babylon, with Sumerian civilisation emerging in the region c. 3500 BC, and the Akkadian-speaking people appearing by the 30th century BC.

Professor Dinard    i was wrong. i do not deserve title of professor! ;mad

Professor Dinard    Mesopotamian mathematics and science was based on a sexagesimal (base 60) numeral system. This is the source of the 60-minute hour, the 24-hour day, and the 360-degree circle. The Sumerian calendar was based on the seven-day week. This form of mathematics was instrumental in early map-making. The Babylonians also had theorems on how to measure the area of several shapes and solids.

They measured the circumference of a circle as three times the diameter and the area as one-twelfth the square of the circumference, which would be correct if p were fixed at 3. The volume of a cylinder was taken as the product of the area of the base and the height; however, the volume of the frustum of a cone or a square pyramid was incorrectly taken as the product of the height and half the sum of the bases.

Also, there was a recent discovery in which a tablet used p as 25/8 (3.125 instead of 3.14159~). The Babylonians are also known for the Babylonian mile, which was a measure of distance equal to about seven modern miles (11 km). This measurement for distances eventually was converted to a time-mile used for measuring the travel of the Sun, therefore, representing time.[20]

 Professor Dinard    i thought 7 day weeks was a Christianity creation. very interesting
Professor Dinard    Kirkuk’s minority groups claimed voting violations on Saturday as Iraqis headed to the polls in the first election since ousting ISIS.

Arshad Al Salehi, the head of the Turkmen Front told The National that there have been several violations in the Kurdish areas of Kirkuk.

“So far there are no observers monitoring the vote in the Kurdish populated areas, people are free to go in and vote," said Mr Al Salehi.

The Turkmen leader said that the voting process in Kirkuk's Turkmen and Arab neighbourhoods has been delayed by four hours due to a glitch in the electronic voting machines.

"This has caused many issues for us," he said. "Voting in the Kurdish areas are yet to experience any complications – it's only in the Arabic and Turkmen districts that systems are breaking down."

Voting was conducted electronically for the first time in an effort to reduce fraud. https://www.thenational.ae/world/mena/iraq-elections-2018-kirkuk-minorities-claim-voting-violations-1.729773

Professor Dinard     Of all the candidates, party lists and organisations contesting the poll, the PMF, or Hashd al-Shaabi as they are known locally, stand to gain, or lose, most. Its leader, Haidar al-Ameri, and the incumbent prime minister Haider al- Abadi, are viewed as the preferred candidates of Iran and the US respectively. The PMF itself has become a microcosm of the tussle for influence between both powers.


Professor Dinard    Ancient Mesopotamian religion was the first recorded. Mesopotamians believed that the world was a flat disc,[citation needed] surrounded by a huge, holed space, and above that, heaven. They also believed that water was everywhere, the top, bottom and sides, and that the universe was born from this enormous sea.

In addition, Mesopotamian religion was polytheistic. Although the beliefs described above were held in common among Mesopotamians, there were also regional variations.

The Sumerian word for universe is an-ki, which refers to the god An and the goddess Ki.[citation needed] Their son was Enlil, the air god. They believed that Enlil was the most powerful god. He was the chief god of the pantheon. The Sumerians also posed philosophical questions, such as: Who are we?, Where are we?,

How did we get here?.[citation needed] They attributed answers to these questions to explanations provided by their gods.......... Is this really where these flat earthers came up with that nonsense?
Blossom     Hi everyone. I just had a longer conversation with my Iraqi friend. He said they have done nothing to their currency. But he will let me know if anything changes. He does not know about the rates changing. He is a young man in the Iraqi army. But when they have more buying power he will know.

Blossom    Zig He wouldnt understand.


  Updated 17 minutes ago BAGHDAD    Polls have closed across Iraq Saturday evening in the first national election since the country declared victory over the Islamic State group.

Results are expected within the next 48 hours according to the independent body that oversees Iraq's election, but negotiations to choose a prime minister tasked with forming a government are

Doug_W    Rocketman Abadi issues a statement after the elections

May 12, 2018    Baghdad_Journal News   Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Saturday issued a statement after the end of the parliamentary elections in all Iraqi provinces.

Al-Abbadi said in the statement received by the «News», «With the help of God this day the general election process in all governorates of Iraq and enabled our dear people to cast their votes to choose their representatives freely and safely, and saw the liberated provinces to conduct a free vote for the first time after the Great Victory And defeat dupes. "

"Our heroic forces have achieved another victory by protecting the democratic process and have been able to protect the citizens in the polling stations scattered throughout Iraq and thwarted the attempts of terrorism to undermine security and stability in this historic day that passed peacefully to all Iraqis."

Professor DinardIn the post-ISIS era, Iraq’s youth population will need job opportunities, which can only be achieved by reducing the country’s economy dependence on the oil windfall.

According to public data from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), in 2016, the oil sector provided more than 90% of government revenue and 80% of foreign exchange earnings. The CIA also notes that “rampant corruption, outdated infrastructure, insufficient essential services, skilled labor shortages, and antiquated commercial laws stifle investment and continue to constrain growth of a private, nonoil sector.”

Professor Dinard    Somalia: Currency Reform Assessment Letter for the Central Bank of Somalia 
​Publication Date: May 11, 2018 Electronic Access:Free Full Text. Use the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view this PDF file Summary:

This letter provides IMF staff’s assessment on the readiness of the Central Bank of Somalia (CBS) to issue a new national currency under Phase I which will be limited to exchanging the counterfeit Somali shilling notes currently in circulation with new currency. Over the past two years the IMF has provided the CBS with extensive technical assistance (TA) to support the currency reform project.

All preparatory measures agreed on between the authorities and IMF staff have been implemented and IMF staff views that the CBS is ready to introduce the new national currency under Phase I.

This assessment letter has been requested by the CBS with the objective to share it with donors to mobilize the needed funding for the currency reform project. It is estimated by IMF staff that this project under Phase I will cost about $41 million.
Professor Dinard    wonder if iraq has a counterfeit note problem

chattels    Kirk H. Sowell‏ @UticaRisk   #InsideIraqiPolitics readers will note that we highlighted Ali's campaign in the issue just out as one of those secularists who we thought might suffer both from the division of secular parties as well as the boycott.
