Humera Bhattiwala, Pooja Jagtap and Annika Durve from India made a historical victory over the international competition and won Alexander Fleming Research Award-2015 in Bioremediation. Their research was highlighted in international media and gathered a large worldwide attention in scientific circles while it appeared in world's most read journal 'The Journal of Energy and Environmental Science'. In their report on Biological deinking of inks and paper by bacterial isolates they mention that Biodeinking has proven to be an ecofriendly, effective and economical method for deinking of waste paper. In the present study the ability of the bacterial isolates to deink four types of papers (papers written with blue ink, glossy paper, old newspaper and inkjet printed paper), decolourize two fountain pen inks (blue and black) and four sketch pen inks (pink, purple, light green and dark green) was studied. The bacterial isolates were isolated from various sources and were identified using biochemical tests. These bacterial isolates were found to decolourise various inks and dyes. The presence of the enzymes cellulose and lipase indicated that these isolates could be used for deinking of papers and lipid based dyes. The study showed that the bacterial isolates, whether free or immobilized, had tremendous potential for environmental friendly technique of biological deinking. Under their leadership the research area is surely likely to expand beyond the horizons. It will be worthy to explore the further potential under their legacy. Humera Bhattiwala, Pooja Jagtap and Annika Durve as valuable intellectuals for the India offer exclusive opportunities for scholars around the world. One of the most attractive weightage for India is to have the awardees for promotion of the concerned scientific discipline for the benefit of its civilians. Thus India which has excellent track record to produce brain storming intellectuals, has offered a new extension in terms of Humera Bhattiwala, Pooja Jagtap and Annika Durve to world.
The present study shows that the cells of the two isolate I.E.F.W1 and I.E.F.W2 whether free or immobilized show tremendous potential for environmental friendly technique of biological deinking. These two isolates have shown high % decolourization for the variety inks and dyes used. Also the two isolates could carry out deinking of all the four variety of papers that were used. The use of two isolates I.E.F.W1 and I.E.F.W2 could allow sustainable bio deinking for paper recycling .This certainly has an impact on process economics, allowing paper to be recycled at lower costs and with lesser difficulties. The use of this technique is not only commercially viable for small scale industries but it is also eco friendly as it does not necessitates the use of chemicals, thereby resulting in effluent with lesser C.O.D.As a future prospective of this study the ability of the 2 isolates I.E.F.W1 and I.E.F.W2 to decolourize effluent from textile and paper industries could be studied.

A Federal Government move to sideline a $1.9 billion budget cut to higher education courses and push ahead with fee deregulation has failed to sway the Senate crossbench. The measures — fee deregulation and the funding cut — were at the heart of the Coalition's university overhaul, which seemed doomed to fail for a second time in the Senate and have now been split into two separate pieces of legislation. The original bill faced heavy opposition, with only one crossbench senator out of eight publicly prepared to back it — far short of the six votes required. But hiving off the budget cut to a separate vote has not won over the vote — with at least five crossbench senators telling the ABC they will not vote for the core deregulation legislation.
