Thottappilly Gini George and Gabriel Jeya Jothi from India made a historical victory over the international competition and won Alexander Fleming Research Award-2015 in Phytochemistry. 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 Phytochemistry'. In their report on Morphology, phytochemical constituents and thin layer chromatography profiles of secondary and tertiary growth stages of Salvinia molesta Mitchell (Salviniaceae) they mention that The present study was focused to find out the phytoconstituents present in the hexane, ethyl acetate, ethanol and methanol extracts of secondary and tertiary forms of Salvinia molesta in order to find out its application in the modern drug industry as one of the therapeutic agents. Phytochemical tests revealed the presence of tannins, saponins, flavonoids, phenols, phytosterols, steroids, terpenoids, triterpenoids, alkaloids, tropane alkaloids, isoquinoline alkaloids, carbohydrates, reducing sugars, fixed oils and fats, lipids and acids in both the forms in varying concentrations. Morphology was reviewed to assess the role of each growth stage in invasion and spreading of the noxious plant. Thin layer chromatography profile showed good spot formation in number of solvent systems indicating various phytocompounds present in each extract of both the forms. Further studies are carried out to evaluate its antioxidant properties and to determine its efficiency in waste water decontamination through the process of phytoremediation to remove water pollutants and heavy metals. This study also manifest that environmentally, economically and socially destructive invasive plant species in the world could also be one of the potential drugs in solving many health related problems. 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. Thottappilly Gini George and Gabriel Jeya Jothi 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 Thottappilly Gini George and Gabriel Jeya Jothi to world.
Analysis of morphology, the environmental problems caused by the invasion of this plant, phytochemical screening for bioactive compounds and thin layer chromatography profile of two growth forms of S. molesta has been investigated during this project. Extraction of the whole plant extract was done by cold sequential extraction method using four solvents in the order of increasing polarity. Number of combinations of solvent systems was tried for thin layer chromatography and the best ones with good spot formation were chosen for the results.
The primary form was not studied as the sample was not available in sufficient quantity. Since the investigation on primary growth form was not done we were not sure whether primary form has got same type of phytocomponents seen in other two growth forms.
Present project may be recommended that after phytochemical screening for bioactive components and thin layer chromatography for separation of phytocompounds, further studies on antimicrobial assay, antioxidant activity and sewage water decontaminating efficiency of the plant will be evaluated. An attempt has to be made individually and manually to cultivate and produce primary growth form in large quantity by means of vegetative propagation in order to study the phytochemical constituents of the primary form.
Present research is financed and supported by University Grants Commission Maulana Azad National Fellowship Scheme, Delhi, India. This research is also one of the primary concerns of the hour as the plant under study is an invasive species causing environmental destruction. Government and public may not be aware of this concept. The first and foremost thing is to conduct an awareness program for the governing body and the public, discuss with them the possibilities of converting something detrimental into beneficial. Conducting a survey involving number of persons from different walks of life would be ideal to study the cause and finally seeking assistance from scientists who will be able to perform scientific investigations on it in order to find out its medicinal applications as herbal formulations and bio-drugs in treating various ailments. This requires collaboration, team work and funding. It is the choice of the government to implement it.
Although Salvinia molesta is considered as the aquatic weed it opens up a new pathway to evaluate its medicinal value as one of the pharmaceutical drugs. Information on phytochemicals and thin layer chromatographic studies conducted on the plant confirmed that it can form a good source of newer drugs. Our work is the first account to study the phytochemical constituents of two different growth forms of this plant. Further research on this plant will be carried out to quantify the concentration of these phytocompounds which will accentuate the isolation and characterization of active principles responsible for bio-efficacy and bioactivity. Water decontaminating capacity of the plant also will be investigated. The discovery of this plant as one of medicinally sought after will result in the control and utilization of this invasive aquatic weed.

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.

Former NAB banker Lukas Kamay and former Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) analyst Christopher Hill have been sentenced to jail over a $7 million insider trading scheme. Kamay was sentenced to seven years and three months in prison with a minimum term of four and a half years. Hill was jailed for three years and three months with a minimum term of two years. Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth described the case as "the worst instance of insider trading to come before the courts in this country.
