Application number: 20140093320
Abstract: Hammer drills and similar devices have an ongoing dust and debris problem that is solved by a protector device covering the drill in a main body protector shielding a user from the materials. The protector device has an evacuation region on its underside with multi dimensional adapters for attaching hoses of varying sizes. Additionally, an insertable collapsible accordion cylinder assists in covering the debris falling from different size drills being used. A second embodiment has a circular saw dust protector attachment arranged as two half moons or 1/4 moon and 3/4 moon having a central cylinder at their respective tops that are to be held together with a mechanical latch.

Patent number: 8635348
Abstract: An endpoint node on a switch fabric announces an intent to host a service for the switch fabric. The announcement includes an announcement entry to an announcement record in a data repository maintained at a designated endpoint node on the switch fabric. The announcement entry includes the endpoint node's preference to take a given role to host the service. The endpoint node queries the announcement record to determine what other endpoint nodes have announced an intent to host the service. Based, at least in part, on the query, the endpoint node determines a role it will take to host the service. The endpoint node updates the announcement record to indicate the role.

Patent number: 8573170
Abstract: A rocker arm assembly which has an anti-inversion part that prevents a support pin from inverting and, thus, ensuring proper orientation of the support pin, on which a rocker arm is rotatably mounted, is maintained. The anti-inversion part can be incorporated on the support pin, the inner sleeve or the outer sleeve and/or a combination of the support pin, the inner sleeve and/or the outer sleeve.

Patent number: 8534249
Abstract: The rocker arm assembly has an anti-inversion part that prevents a support pin from inverting, ensuring proper orientation of the support pin, on which a rocker arm is rotatably mounted, is maintained. The anti-inversion part can be a washer, a plate, a plug, or a sleeve. The washer, which has a flat face and a curved face, is intended for use with a cylindrical support pin which matches the curved face of the washer. The plate can include various combinations of tabs, flanges, and/or protrusions that extend in different directions. The plug can resemble any desirable shape, and is removed prior to final assembly. The sleeve can be hollow and is removable.

Application number: 20130039927
Abstract: The present invention relates to an anti-idiotypic polypeptide scaffold that includes two or more peptide sequences that mimic a discontinuous epitope of a pathogen that is recognized by or induces formation of a broadly neutralizing antibody. Using a fibronectin FNfn10 scaffold bearing two or more modified discontinuous loops, scaffolds that recognize broadly neutralizing antibodies in vitro and from patient serum have been identified. These scaffolds should induce an immune response or mobilize germline specificities to initiate their affinity maturation.

Application number: 20120226780
Abstract: The invention is a method for enabling digital content to be downloaded to and used on multiple types of computing device by (i) linking user accounts on each device to a “master” user account defined and stored on a remote server; and (ii) managing the user's access to a defined service using his devices via the said master user account; and (iii) allowing the download of digital content to each said device on which the user is permitted to access the said service using a file format which is appropriate for use on each said device type. A user may manage and access the same user account from multiple types of computing devices. Furthermore, the number of device platforms accessible in a similar manner by the user is extensible and the user's information is kept automatically synchronized across all devices.

Application number: 20120197946
Abstract: In contrast to the traditional approach of defining relationships between data collections using complex groups of cross-reference database tables, the present invention makes use of generic sets to represent relationships between complex collections of interrelated data. The complexity of a database schema can be greatly reduced by representing the relationships between data items as these data sets (sets of data items). These sets of data items may be defined in one or more database tables in a database. This approach provides for much simplified database data management and control. It enables the easy pre- or re-calculation of sets and provides for the easy creation of hierarchical meta-data trees, which are ideal for the targeted delivery of data to the user.

Patent number: 8117139
Abstract: Methods and systems for interactive evolutionary computing may include generating a set of candidate molecules based on an evolutionary scheme in which an objective function is a priori mathematically unexpressed, presenting data based on the set of candidate molecules to one or more users, receiving at least one input from the user(s), the input(s) based on the user(s)'s evaluation of the presented set of candidate molecules, and, based on the input(s), using at least the evolutionary scheme and the input(s) to generate an updated set of candidate molecules, and repeating the presenting and receiving.

Application number: 20110231522
Abstract: A distributed digital media metering and reporting system makes available digital media files for multiple consumer devices from a computer-based infrastructure. The consumer devices meter the number of playbacks of a media file that last beyond a predefined extent, in order to generate metering data, and then automatically report that metering data back to the computer-based infrastructure.
