Harshata Pal, Shekhar Ghosh and Swati Sen Mandi from India made a historical victory over the international competition and won Molecular Taxonomy Research Award-2015 in Threatened Taxa. 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 for Threatened Taxa'. In their report on Molecular Authentication of Endangered Medicinal Plant Panax assamicus and Panax bipinnatifidus from North-East India by Species Specific AFLP Marker they mention that Panax assamicus R. N. Banerjee and Panax bipinnatifidus Seem are two most important endangered species rarely found in North-East India. Due to overexploitation this medicinally valuable plant, it is under the threat of extinction in North-East India. Therefore, molecular documentation of few accessions of Panax assamicus and Panax bipinnatifidus from different locations in Meghalay and Arunachal Pradesh was carried out to develop species specific Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) marker in automated DNA sequencer. Unique set of common alleles generated from electropherogram in AFLP analysis, depending on primer pairs viz. EcoRI-ACA*/MSeI-CTA, EcoRIAAG*/MSeICTC, EcoRI-ACG*/ MSeI-CTG and EcoRI-AGC*/MSeI-CAA, for different accessions of same species are regarded as species specific molecular markers. Both the species Panax assamicus and Panax bipinnatifidus showed 85.25% and 94.55% polymorphism, respectively. The similarity coefficient matrix reflected genetic relatedness among Panax landraces of two species. Cluster I is comprised of four land races of Panax bipinnatifidus and Cluster II is consisted four land races of Panax assamicus in the dendogram, depicting the significance of molecular taxonomy over classical taxonomy to resolute taxonomic complexity of Panax species in NE India. Along with the information on molecular authentication to resist adulteration of these two endangered species the recent research also provides species specific DNA marker relating to catalogue these plant genetic resources. 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. Harshata Pal, Shekhar Ghosh and Swati Sen Mandi 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 Harshata Pal, Shekhar Ghosh and Swati Sen Mandi to world.
Molecular characterization represented in this report would authentically distinguish Panax bipinnatifidus and Panax assamicus and thereby in addition to resolving associated taxonomic confusion with these species in NE India, the significance of this study stems from the fact that it provides an authentication tool to detect adulterants in the crude drug preparations and to maintain the quality standard in the herbal drug industry. Again, this study also provides species specific molecular marker along with the distinct AFLP fingerprinting pattern for two species and and the phylogenetic tree with two clusters for supporting the sovereignty right and development of passport data.

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.
Want mini-skirt worthy legs? These moves will get you there in no time at all. Pick a few moves, or try them all to sculpt your butt, hamstrings, quads, thighs, and calves. Try Yoga to get fit! Stand with the feet together, and lift up the left leg with a pointed toe, putting your body weight onto the standing, right leg. Continue to lift your leg and drop the head and torso so they form a straight horizontal line from head to toe with the arms at your sides. Engage your core and make sure the left thigh, hip, and toes are aligned. Remain facing down and keep your back as straight as possible. Ensure your right knee doesn't lock and center the weight on the middle of the foot. Hold for 5 breaths and then slowly return to standing.

The King of Horror has opened up on one of the most anticipated films of the year, and his high praise has only given us more to look forward to. When you're a world renowned horror author with an incredible cult-following, your opinions matter. So when Guillermo del Toro gave Stephen King a first look at his upcoming film, Crimson Peak the author’s reaction was sure to put some weight on how the film was received. And from the King’s response, it looks like we’re in for a real treat with this horrifying flick. And King didn’t stop there either. Just the phrase ‘fucking terrifying’ would be welcomed praise from the best-selling author. But, the film touched King so much so that he went on to add an even bigger compliment.
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. She said Kamay and Hill "were motivated by personal greed, pure and simple" and said Kamay displayed some symptoms of "inflated self-esteem or narcissistic personality traits." Kamay pleaded guilty to money laundering, identity theft and insider trading. Co-offender Hill also pleaded guilty to insider trading and misuse of public office.
Life "would be boring without gossip", he told Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev at talks in St Petersburg upon his rumors of absence. His disappearance from public view had sparked rumours that he might have fallen ill, died, been removed in a coup, or once again become a father. There was no obvious sign that Mr Putin had been or still was suffering from any medical condition. Rumors about his romance also gets buried with this episode. Washington Post and BBC also published similar reports. Romance is the first step towards intimacy. It cannot be left to chance. Whether it is by accident, a natural skill, or a conscious strategy, it is a necessary initial activity that both men and women engage in. It consists of body language, conversation and brief initial physical contact. It can be a mutual dance of two people or a singular approach by one towards another.
