Physics codes

A dear colleague of mine, who is now teaching as a Professor in nuclear and theoretical physics at Baghdad University, is in need of physics codes that may be used as tools for post-graduate students to do their research projects in nuclear reactions, nuclear models, gamma transitions, gamma attenuation, radiation dosimetry, etc..., as all the previous codes were lost after April 2003.

If you know any colleagues who may be using such codes, preferably running on a Pentium Desktop, and are willing to send them (along with the programming language used, such as Fortran), please inform me to arrange for their delivery.

It would be very much appreciated.

All the best

"with not a single mention of an occupation in its 10 points of recommendations"

"Dear Imad,

.. I received an e-mail from Dr Abbas. He was very angry that you refused to put the “Appeal of the Tribute Day” organized in London on the new website.

In my humble opinion, I think it is wrong to classify Iraqi academics as either with us or against us.

Moreover, you will strengthen your hand if you appear to be a bridge between all views.

Best wishes,
Athem Alsabti"

"Greetings Athem

With all due respects, an appeal on the present plight of Iraqi academics with not a single mention of an occupation in its 10 points of recommendations is not, in my humble opinion, worthy of academics. Hence, I would not post it myself.

On the other hand, I have invited all members on the List to post, under their own names, whatever they like, to their credit or discredit.

There is no bridge to those who acquiesce to occupation.

All the best
Imad Khadduri"

A new Hit List

Slated for killing: More than 450 Iraqi intellectuals fear for their lives May 8, 2006

The following are the remarks of Dr. Entissar Mohammad Ariabi, a pharmacist from Yarmook Hospital who is part of an Iraqi women's delegation touring the United States, organized by CODEPINK and Global Exchange. She spoke on March 18 in West Palm Beach, Fla.
"I came on this speaking trip to the U.S. because when I was home in Baghdad, I watched on TV what President Bush was telling the American people about democracy, freedom, security and the help that the U.S. is giving the Iraqi people, and I couldn't believe the lies. So I decided to take the risk to come to the U.S. and share with you what's really going on. I do not represent any political organization or ethnic group. I come only as a mother of five, a pharmacist and a human being."
