Saturn Awards

The Saturn Awards are American awards presented annually by the Academy of Science Fiction and Horror Films. The awards were referred to as Golden Scrolls; the Saturn Awards were created in 1973. The Saturn Awards were devised by Donald A. Reed in 1973, who felt that work in films in the genre of science fiction at that time lacked recognition within the established Hollywood film industry's award system; the award given was a Golden Scroll certificate. In the late 1970s, the award was changed to be a representation of the planet Saturn, with its ring composed of film; the Saturn Awards are voted upon by members of the presenting Academy. The Academy is a non-profit organization with membership open to the public, its President and Executive Producer is Robert Holguin, Producer/Writers Bradley Marcus and Kevin Marcus Its members include filmmakers JJ Abrams, Bryan Singer, Steven Spielberg, Bryan Fuller, Mark A. Altman, Vince Gilligan and James Cameron, among others. Although the Award still focuses on films and television in the science fiction and horror categories, the Saturns have recognized productions in other dramatic genres.

There are special awards for lifetime achievement in film production. The Saturn Awards are criticized for having a broad and inconsistent definition of genres, as well as for nominating and awarding movies not related to sci-fi, fantasy or horror.

Lipinski's rule of five

Lipinski's rule of five known as Pfizer's rule of five or the rule of five, is a rule of thumb to evaluate druglikeness or determine if a chemical compound with a certain pharmacological or biological activity has chemical properties and physical properties that would make it a orally active drug in humans. The rule was formulated by Christopher A. Lipinski in 1997, based on the observation that most orally administered drugs are small and moderately lipophilic molecules; the rule describes molecular properties important for a drug's pharmacokinetics in the human body, including their absorption, distribution and excretion. However, the rule does not predict; the rule is important to keep in mind during drug discovery when a pharmacologically active lead structure is optimized step-wise to increase the activity and selectivity of the compound as well as to ensure drug-like physicochemical properties are maintained as described by Lipinski's rule. Candidate drugs that conform to the RO5 tend to have lower attrition rates during clinical trials and hence have an increased chance of reaching the market.

Lipinski's rule states that, in general, an orally active drug has no more than one violation of the following criteria: No more than 5 hydrogen bond donors No more than 10 hydrogen bond acceptors A molecular mass less than 500 daltons An octanol-water partition coefficient that does not exceed 5Note that all numbers are multiples of five, the origin of the rule's name. As with many other rules of thumb, such as Baldwin's rules for ring closure, there are many exceptions. In an attempt to improve the predictions of druglikeness, the rules have spawned many extensions, for example the Ghose filter: Partition coefficient log P in −0.4 to +5.6 range Molar refractivity from 40 to 130 Molecular weight from 180 to 480 Number of atoms from 20 to 70 Veber's Rule further questions a 500 molecular weight cutoff. The polar surface area and the number of rotatable bonds has been found to better discriminate between compounds that are orally active and those that are not for a large data set of compounds in the rat.

In particular, compounds which meet only the two criteria of: 10 or fewer rotatable bonds and Polar surface area no greater than 140 Å2are predicted to have good oral bioavailability. During drug discovery and molecular weight are increased in order to improve the affinity and selectivity of the drug candidate. Hence it is difficult to maintain drug-likeness during hit and lead optimization. Hence it has been proposed that members of screening libraries from which hits are discovered should be biased toward lower molecular weight and lipophility so that medicinal chemists will have an easier time in delivering optimized drug development candidates that are drug-like. Hence the rule of five has been extended to the rule of three for defining lead-like compounds. A rule of three compliant compound is defined as one that has: octanol-water partition coefficient log P not greater than 3 molecular mass less than 300 daltons not more than 3 hydrogen bond donors not more than 3 hydrogen bond acceptors not more than 3 rotatable bonds Biopharmaceutics Classification System Chemical structure Chemicalize.org § List of the predicted structure based properties Fragment-based lead discovery QSAR Interactive Rule of Five calculator Free online calculations of Hydrogen bond donor/acceptor and logP using ChemAxon's Marvin and Calculator Plugins – requires Java Calculation of Druglikeness – requires Java

Reddy served as the president of Mysore Congress twice, in 1937–38 and 1946–47, he was a member of the Constituent Assembly of India. After independence of India in 1947, he was at the forefront of the Mysore Chalo movement seeking responsible state government in Mysore State and went on to become the first Chief Minister of the state.

He served in this position from 1947 to 1952. Reddy was elected as a member of the Mysore Legislative Assembly in 1952. Subsequently, he served as a member of the Rajya Sabha from 1952 to 1957 and as a member of the Lok Sabha, representing Kolar from 1957 to 1962. During this period, he served as Union Minister for Housing and Supplies and as Union Minister for Commerce and Industries, he served as Governor of Madhya Pradesh from 1965 to 1971.
