In the five membered nitrogen containing heterocyclic family, pyrazoline could be recognized as a promising scaffold for the inhibition of Monoamine oxidase. Substitution at 1, 3 and 5-position of the pyrazoline nucleus displayed a significant activity towards MAO in the past 15 years. Our study identified the detailed structure activity relationship, the structural requirement for enzyme interaction and the effect of chirality on the pyrazoline nucleus towards MAO-A and MAO-B. We propose that the selectivity of pyrazoline nucleus towards MAO isoenzyme depends up on the bulkiness of the ring in the 1 and 3 position of the scaffold. The current review revealed that the derivatives of pyrazolines have proven to be versatile pharmacophores for the inhibition of MAO on the basis of existing literatures between (1998-2013). © 2013 Bentham Science Publishers.

The Grant County Economic Growth Council hosted the tenth annual I-69 Collegiate Innovation Challenge on February 10-12 at Plymouth’s Swan Lake Resort. This challenge brings together university students from along the I-69 corridor for a weekend of innovation, problem solving, and entrepreneurship. A total of five teams competed in the challenge. Each team was comprised of a student representative from each participating university. The students were placed into teams Friday afternoon based on the Basadur Creative Profile, a problem-solving assessment, and collaborated for less than 24-hours on a for-profit business solution to the social problem that was selected by the students. The 2017 social problem that the students chose was prison overcrowding. The participating schools in 2017 were Indiana Wesleyan University, Taylor University, Ivy Tech Community College, Huntington University, and Grace College. Here is a complete list of participating students: The Growth Council is proud to announce the competition’s winning team: Kyle Barry of Indiana Wesleyan University; Emma Reese of Huntington University; Emily Guinter of Grace College; Jackson Wilcox of Taylor University; and Carson Adams of Ivy Tech Community College. In this competition, the groups of students were tasked with creating a for-profit business plan that addresses prison overpopulation. The first place winners were each awarded $500 gift cards for their business concept, “Design Again,” a business solution that utilizes the creativity of former inmates to create design and marketing products for small businesses. “It was great to work with different individuals who all had different strengths and ideas,” shared Kyle Barry of the winning team. The second place team members each won $250 gift cards for their proposal of “KP Trucking,” a freight moving company that hires, trains, and mentors prisoners after their sentences are served. The team consisted of Paxton Singer, Sam Petersen, Meyantae Johnson, Contstanze Goelz, and Matthew McNeal. The third place team members were awarded $100 gift cards for their idea, “Life Loan,” a career placement and lending organization. The students on this team included Amy Bowman, Alicia Garnache, Shana Reff, Nathan Hahn, and Annette Hammond. Saturday afternoon, the five teams presented their solutions to a panel of five judges: Matt Tuohy of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation; Iris Hammel, the program director of St. Joe CEO; Charles A. Kennedy of Cambridge Capital Management Corp.; Phil Black of Community Investment Fund of Indiana; and Maggie Phelps of Integrating Woman Leaders Foundation. Following the presentations, the judges selected the winning teams based on criteria that included innovation, profitability, and market potential. After all five of the teams presentations, Maggie Phelps commented on the efforts of the teams by saying, “I was blown away by how knowledgeable the students were, especially considering how little time they had to prepare their plans.” Susie Ripley of the Office of Community and Rural Affairs said, “This is such a great event and it is wonderful that you can share what you all are doing and bring others along to catch that vision!!” The purpose of the I-69 Collegiate Innovation Challenge is to encourage entrepreneurship among students along the I-69 corridor, provide networking opportunities for students and judges, generate creative ideas, and allow for collaboration between universities. The Event was sponsored by each participating university, the Grant County Economic Growth Council, and Indiana Michigan Power.

Current research has shown that reductions in nonpoint nutrient loading are needed to reduce the incidence of harmful algal blooms and hypoxia in the western and central basins of Lake Erie. We used the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) to test various sediment and nutrient load reduction strategies, including agricultural best management practice (BMP) implementation and source reduction in various combinations for six watersheds. These watersheds, in order of decreasing phosphorus loads, include the Maumee, Sandusky, Cuyahoga, Raisin, Grand, and Huron, and together comprise 53% of the binational Lake Erie Basin area. Hypothetical pristine nutrient yields, after eliminating all anthropogenic influences, were estimated to be an order of magnitude lower than current yields, underscoring the need for stronger management actions. However, cover crops, filter strips, and no-till BMPs, when implemented at levels considered feasible, were minimally effective, reducing sediment and nutrient yields by only 0-11% relative to current values. Sediment yield reduction was greater than nutrient yield reduction, and the greatest reduction was found when all three BMPs were implemented simultaneously. When BMPs were targeted at specific locations rather than at random, greater reduction in nutrient yields was achieved with BMPs placed in high source locations, whereas reduction in sediment yields was greatest when BMPs were located near the river outlet. Modest nutrient source reduction also was minimally effective in reducing yields. Our model results indicate that an "all-of-above" strategy is needed to substantially reduce nutrient yields and that BMPs should be much more widely implemented. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

We estimated net anthropogenic phosphorus inputs (NAPI) to 18 Lake Michigan (LM) and 6 Lake Erie (LE) watersheds for 1974, 1978, 1982, 1987, and 1992. NAPI quantifies all anthropogenic inputs of P (fertilizer use, atmospheric deposition, and detergents) as well as trade of P in food and feed, which can be a net input or output. Fertilizer was the dominant input overall, varying by three orders of magnitude among the 24 watersheds, but detergent was the largest input in the most urbanized watershed. NAPI increased in relation to area of disturbed land (R2 = 0.90) and decreased with forested and wetland area (R2 = 0.90). Export of P by rivers varied with NAPI, especially for the 18 watersheds of LM (R2 = 0.93), whereas the relationship was more variable among the six LE watersheds (R2 = 0.59). On average, rivers of the LE watersheds exported about 10% of NAPI, whereas LM watersheds exported 5% of estimated NAPI. A comparison of our results with others as well as nitrogen (N) budgets suggests that fractional export of P may vary regionally, as has been reported for N, and the proportion of P inputs exported by rivers appears lower than comparable findings with N. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.

Phosphorus (P) applied to croplands in excess of crop requirements has resulted in large-scale accumulation of P in soils worldwide, leading to freshwater eutrophication from river runoff that may extend well into the future. However, several studies have reported declines in surplus P inputs to the land in recent decades. To quantify trends in P loading to Lake Erie (LE) watersheds, we estimated net anthropogenic phosphorus inputs (NAPI) to 18 LE watersheds for agricultural census years from 1935 to 2007. NAPI quantifies anthropogenic inputs of P from fertilizer use, atmospheric deposition and detergents, as well as the net exchange in P related to trade in food and feed. Over this 70-year period, NAPI increased to peak values in the 1970s and subsequently declined in 2007 to a level last experienced in 1935. This rise and fall was the result of two trends: a dramatic increase in fertilizer use, which peaked in the 1970s and then declined to about two-thirds of maximum values; and a steady increase in P exported as crops destined for animal feed and energy production. During 1974-2007, riverine phosphorus loads fluctuated, and were correlated with inter-annual variation in water discharge. However, riverine P export did not show consistent temporal trends, nor correlate with temporal trends in NAPI or fertilizer use. The fraction of P inputs exported by rivers appeared to increase sharply after the 1990s, but the cause is unknown. Thus estimates of phosphorus inputs to watersheds provide insight into changing source quantities but may be weak predictors of riverine export. © 2012 International Association for Great Lakes Research.


A series of isatin imines incorporated with 4-sustituted phenyl 2-amino thiazole was synthesized on the basis of molecular hybridization drug design principle. The structures of the derivatives were confirmed by IR, 1HNMR and Mass analyses. The titled derivatives were screened against M.tuberculosis strain H37RVusing alamar blue susceptibility test. Compound 3-{[4-(4- hydroxyphenyl)-1, 3-thiazol-2-yl] imino}-1, 3-dihydro-2H-indol-2-one (IIT2) was found to be most active with a MIC of 6.25μg/ml. Preclinical evaluation of the compounds was ascertained by in silico toxicity and ADME parameters. It has been concluded that the hydrogen contributing groups present in the phenyl system of the titled scaffold favours the activity ratio. © 2015 Bentham Science Publishers
