  • Patent number: 8342781
    Abstract: A drill body for chip removing machining, including a rotationally symmetrical envelope surface and front and rear ends between which a center axis extends, around which the envelope surface is rotatable in a predetermined direction of rotation. A head is formed in the front end that includes two cutting edges, each one of which includes a first part edge and a second part edge. The first part edge is included in a central tip part having a front end portion situated along the center axis. The second part edge extends between a peripheral end point positioned along the envelope surface and a radially inner end point where the second part edge transforms into the first part edge. The two first part edges converge at a positive nose angle (?) in an axially forward direction, and the two second part edges diverge at a negative angle (?) in the axially forward direction.

  • Patent number: 8345191
    Abstract: An optical component capable of changing polarization light state and a liquid crystal display (LCD) device using the same are provided. The optical component including a transparent substrate and a wavelength compensator is disposed at any position from the outer side of the LCD device to the outside in an output direction of an output light. The wavelength compensator is directly attached to the surface of the substrate to convert an output light of the LCD device from a linearly polarized light into a circularly polarized light or an elliptically polarized light, thereby effectively reducing eye fatigue. The LCD device is provided with such an optical component such that a linearly polarized light emerging from the LCD device is converted into a circularly polarized light or an elliptically polarized light to lessen the eye fatigue.

  • Patent number: 8347202
    Abstract: A system and method for tagging place names with geographic location coordinates, the place names associated with a collection of objects in a memory of a computer system. The system and method process a text string within an object stored in memory to identify a first potential place name. The system and method determine whether geographic location coordinates are known for the first potential place name. The system and method identify the first potential place name associated with an object in the memory as a place name. The system and method tag the first identified place name associated with an object in the memory with its geographic location coordinates, when the geographic location coordinates for the first identified place name are known. The system and method disambiguate place names when multiple place names are found.

  • Patent number: 8346843
    Abstract: A system having a resource manager, a plurality of masters, and a plurality of slaves, interconnected by a communications network. To distribute data, a master determined that a destination slave of the plurality slaves requires data. The master then generates a list of slaves from which to transfer the data to the destination slave. The master transmits the list to the resource manager. The resource manager is configured to select a source slave from the list based on available system resources. Once a source is selected by the resource manager, the master receives an instruction from the resource manager to initiate a transfer of the data from the source slave to the destination slave. The master then transmits an instruction to commence the transfer.
