NO HEART TO GIVE Some primary advices
In a state of devastation When you can`t get any vision When you can`t go or run away You can`t hide or be away When there is no land any bound No light ever day in day out No point to strive, no goal to achieve No see No sight No sob No sound In a world of sorrow and grief When all gladness has been spoiled No mercy, No sympathy The Rosen lands are destroyed

Pashéw Majeed Didar Husain Ardalan Luqman E-mail:
1– Always try to keep smile on your face and think in a good way, so as to be an optimistic person, because our prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) was always having a smile on his face. 2- In our live, when something is gone it doesn’t come back again, it becomes a part of our past. So we should not waste our time thinking about it and grieve, but we should plan for today and the future. 3– Get benefit of your time. Try not to waste even a single moment in your life wasted uselessly. Time is more precious than gold, people can buy gold but they can not buy even one second. 4– Try to be an open minded person and try to change your bad habits or behaviors' and even your way of thinking, if it was a wrong or a confused one. Try to accustom yourself with the people round you. Be a useful person to your society.

Learn a Foreign Language
When you are in a foreign country. If you don’t know the language of that country, you may have a lot of problems. Here is the story of a French man who was traveling in the United States. One day he went to a restaurant and wanted to order some mushrooms. Because he didn’t know English, he asked for a pencil and a paper and carefully drew a picture of a mushroom. But his drawing was not very good. The waiter looked at his drawing and went away. Then he returned back after a bout twenty minutes with a large umbrella. Another story is about two Americans traveling to Spain. They didn’t know even a single word of Spanish. One day and while sitting in a restaurant in a small village, they wanted to order some food. One of them wanted a glass of milk. The waiter couldn’t understand him. Finally, on a piece of paper the man drew a picture of a cow, and tried to show to the waiter that I want the milk of cow. The waiter looked at the picture carefully. Then he left and disappeared for a bout an hour. When he returned back. He had

We do apologize last issue we made a small mistake, this is the correct one.
If wound is large-scale, use a wound

Transferring our Ideas
by Asma A. Kareem, 2nd year
A profile on a teacher's career
Dr. Saman (The head of department of English in college of language)
Would you please introduce yourself briefly! - I think, first of all, they should have the will for learning. Learning a foreign language is a process of self-study, follow up, and practice. I believe that following media channels is one the best means of learning a foreign language. Moreover, students have to be familiarized with the library to enrich their knowledge through reading. - My name is Saman Hussien Omar. I was born in 1977 in Kirkuk. I have PHD in Modern American Novel. - I try to follow a method which brings about a student-centered class in which there is no spoonfeeding and students learn by practice.
It is easy to oblige your horse to go forward to river but it is impossible to oblige it to drink from the river
There are two logics that people depend on when they have ideas and they want to transfer them to the others, the first idea is (Mental persuasion) and the second logic is (Enforcement persuasion). There is an ancient proverb which says; (It is easy to oblige your horse to go forward to river but it is impossible to oblige it to drink from the river), so which sort of logics do you prefer or which one do you
rely on when you become a strong person? Do you agree with those people who prefer (men t a l persuasion) or sometimes you use the force? When we ask people such question, most of them would respond offhand and they prefer the mental persuasion logic because by enforcement we can’t reach the result but even if we reach the result, of course it doesn’t continue. Due to the enforcement way and it is like
a strong spring whenever you compress on it and release it, it returns back to its normal shape. That’s why we can’t focus on the enforcement way for transferring our ideas to others it’s just because mental persuasion logic stays or remains longer than the enforcement logic which it will vanish gradually or day after day. It can be out of date very easily.

Interview by ZHILA and DIDAR, 2nd year
What is your opinion about the best way for students to improve their English?
Muhammad (P.B.U.H) says: “Be clean because Islam is clean”
Which method do you adopt in teaching?
"Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend."
So you have to choose your friends carefully, and put them on probation , know them, and try to realize who your friends are. Can guys and girls make a friendship? May be it’s a most common question that we faced, in fact in some cases, guys and girls can be the best of friends, but in other cases any truly platonic relationship is virtually impossible. It depends on you and your intention. -Try to find out why your friend is jealous of you. - Find out what your friend really wants to have. - Keep the smile on your face. -Don’t show off. - Imagine that you’re your friend; put yourself in the same situation. - Sometimes you can ask him/her to do a favor with you. If there is no solution Stay away from jealous friends. If my friend is liar? If you figured out that your friend had lain, at first you have to know why s/he did that? If his/her lie is reasonable it’s OK. Otherwise I got the remedy for you; stay away from liars because they are like shadow or mirage keep away from you what is near and approach to you what is distant.
Why do students write on the walls and desks in college?
uneducated persons or students accustomed to write on the walls illogically, and actually it is one of the worst and ugliest behavior that appeared in the college nowadays. Some of unsuccessful students waste their time usually by writing on the walls of studying halls, desks or water closet’s wall (W.C), and certainly it has a strong relation to their families’ education sometimes they would be praised by their families or I can say that their families are the motivation of bad behaviors such as writing on walls instead of cleaning their college up and there is no doubt that it is honor for everyone to clean his/her college up so as to be a dynamic place for educating the future’s generation. Our honorable prophet, Muhammad (P.B.U.H) says: “Be clean because I s l a m i s c l e a n ” if we really like our prophet, we should be clean if it is not because of our sakes, let it be because of our prophet’s sake.

Few questions friendship.
Having a good friend is God given gift. Everyone has his/ her own friend, but they are few those who have good friends. As college students sometimes we’re facing problems with our friends, because we don’t know how to make good friends. That’s why we have to know what are the reasons behind them, and seek solutions. You have to be very careful. What do you do when one of your friends took you for granted? What if s/he went behind your back and betrayed you by telling others something that you confided in them! And put you in trouble?
O f course one of the most
scientific organizations which lead the society for development and invention is college. And those who are employed or studying in this valuable association, should be ambitious people, but with a deeply moving some of
Who are my friends?
I think my friends are those who will stay by my side when I need them whatever the situation is, and tell me my faults in private. And those who make me cry not those who always comfort me by their lies. What have to do if I have a jealous friend?

Along with several other nutrients, vitamins are needed for humans to grow, reproduce, and be healthy. Thirteen vitamins have been identified: A, eight B-complex vitamins, C, D, E, and K. Because only vitamins D and K are produced in the human body, people get most of the vitamins they need from food.
