  • Patent number: 8339962
    Abstract: In one aspect, a method and apparatus are disclosed that can provide an efficient and robust HSDPA flow control solution. The RNC (110) can receive information regarding allowed data rate from the Node-B (120) for a data flow in a downlink direction. Based on the received data rate information and optionally based on other predetermined considerations, the RNC (110) adjusts the RLC PDU transmission window size for the data flow. When the RLC PDU transmission window is properly sized, reaction to congestion can be performed quicker relative to the existing Iub flow control.

  • Patent number: 8341067
    Abstract: A post-trade aggregation system includes an allocation middleware interface, which interacts with an order management system to allocate and settle trades. The order management system receives a trade order on behalf of a customer and either apportions the trade into a plurality of smaller orders and communicates them to a plurality of order destinations directly (e.g. via the FIX protocol), or sends large orders to an order staging and optimization interface which then apportions the larger orders into a plurality of smaller orders and communicates the orders to a plurality of order destinations. The post-trade aggregation system contains an allocation middleware interface which receives the individual trade executions from the plurality of order destination and compresses them into a single average-priced block.

  • Patent number: 8334427
    Abstract: The present invention generally provides a method to generate broad-spectrum resistance to bacterial blight disease in plants. More specifically, the present invention provides a method to generate broad-spectrum resistance to Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae, the causal agent of bacterial blight disease of rice, and enhanced resistance to Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzicola, the causal agent of bacterial leaf streak of rice. Xa27, an inducible bacterial blight R gene in rice, was induced by the cognate avrXa27 gene expressed in host. Rice plants carrying the avrXa27 transgene and wild-type Xa27 gene conferred resistance to incompatible and compatible pathogens, and enhanced resistance to X. oryzae pv. oryzicola strain L8. The Xa27-mediated enhanced resistance to X. oryzae pv. oryzicola was also observed in the interaction between IRBB27 and L8 harboring pHM1avrXa27. This was further verified by the fact that the Xa27 gene in IRBB27 was induced by the avrXa27 gene in bacteria.

  • Patent number: 8328997
    Abstract: This invention relates to the design of a process by intermittent dielectric heating combined with a recycling system. This process consists in subjecting reagents to electromagnetic waves selected in the frequencies ranging between 300 GHz and 3 MHz intermittently using a recycling system. This process enables the treatment of oils that are hardly absorbent as well as great investment savings. This process enables operation on different scales, whether in laboratories, on a semi-industrial or industrial scale, without forfeiting the advantages of continuous dielectric heating.
