  • Patent number: 6684108
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for diagnosing, treating, monitoring and modifying the treatment of cancer and other illnesses in humans and animals is described. A radioscope is used to test a biological sample from a subject, and the results of that test are compared to a tabulation of prior test results in order to diagnose the illness of the subject. The illness is then treated using a therapeutic apparatus involving the low-power, pulsed application of radio frequency tuned with precision of at least one half part per million. A radioscope is then used to monitor the results of the treatment, and the results of the later tests are again compared to a tabulation of prior test results in order to adjust the treatment if necessary.

  • Patent number: 6557337
    Abstract: A gas turbine engine a turbine, a compressor turbine mounted downstream the turbine for rotation in a direction opposite to the rotation direction of the turbine that is mounted downstream the compressor. Exhaust fluid from the compressor turbine is cooled in a heat exchanger with a compressed fluid downstream the compressor and is then cooled with air in separate heat exchanger before being admitted to the compressor. A part of the compressed fluid heated in the heat exchanger is fed to cool the turbine blades, and the rest of the fluid is fed to a heated fluid source for the turbine. To control the gas turbine engine, a part of fluid is boosted by a booster compressor and is discharged from the engine. The booster compressor is driven by an expanding turbine that rotated under the effect of combustion air that is expanded in the expanding turbine and flows through the expanding turbine under the action of reduced pressure in the heated fluid source.

  • Patent number: 6546736
    Abstract: A method of operating a gas turbine engine comprising a power turbine mounted downstream a compressor, and a compressor turbine mounted downstream the power turbine for rotation in a direction opposite to the rotation direction of the power turbine. Exhaust fluid from the compressor turbine is cooled in a heat exchanger with a compressed fluid downstream the compressor and is then cooled with air in separate heat exchanger before being admitted to the compressor. A part of the compressed fluid heated in the heat exchanger is fed to cool the turbine blades, and the rest of the fluid is fed to a heated fluid source for the turbine.

  • Patent number: 6511176
    Abstract: An improved eyeglass retainer is disclosed, having annular closure attaching to the eyeglass frames. In an alternate embodiment, the closure comprises an elastic band that is only partially attached to the front portion of retainer, meaning that the retainer need not be tubular at the attachment point with elastic band. The invention is designed to present an aesthetically pleasing appearance and to maintain a close fit of the retainer material with the eyeglass frames, even in the presence of winds and inertial forces. In alternate embodiments, the closure in combination with protuberances located on the eyeglass temple pieces secures the retainer to the temple pieces. The protuberances may be integral with the eyeglass frames, or may be separately attached.

  • Patent number: 6460324
    Abstract: A gas turbine engine comprising a compressor, a power turbine, a counter-rotating compressor turbine for powering the compressor and a heat exchanger interconnected among them, uses a mixer to mix waste fluid heated by the heat exchanger with combustion air and feed the mixture to a combustor.

  • Patent number: 6442687
    Abstract: The invention provides secure and anonymous communications over a network, which is accomplished by imposing mechanisms that separate a users' actions from their identity. In one embodiment, involving use of the Internet, an http request, which normally contains both identity and action information, is separated in the first instance on the client side into action request and identity components, which are encrypted. The encrypted action and identity components are transmitted to a facility comprising an “identity server” and an “action server”, wherein the identity server receives the two encrypted request components and forwards the encrypted action request component to an action server. The identity server has the key to decrypt the identity component (but not the action component), and the action server has the key to decrypt the action component (but not the identity component). The action server decrypts the action request and forwards it to the third-party server.

  • Patent number: 6441045
    Abstract: A disinfectant composition containing more than 0.05% and less than 9.4% by volume of dimethyl benzyl lauryl ammonium bromide, substantially pure, substantially de-ionized, substantially bacteria free water if the pH of the water is between 5.0 and 6.8, a first stabilizer structured to adjust a pH level of the disinfectant composition to approximately 7, ammonium Bulfate structured to increase a strength of the composition and a stabilizer structured to lower the pH level of the disinfectant composition back to approximately 7.

  • Patent number: 6415300
    Abstract: An improved method of performing a high-performance backup of a computer system is described, which reduces disk read time and thus gains efficiency by reading input file blocks sequentially rather than the order in which the block appear in the original files. The improved method involves reading the working directory maintained by the operating system to determine all of the blocks associated with the set of files or other data aggregations to be backed up. The data block identities so determined are sorted in accordance with their physical location on the disk, thereby providing a sequential order for reading. The data to be backed up from the random access storage device or devices is read in this sequential order, and written to the backup media.

  • Patent number: 6408314
    Abstract: An improved method of performing a sort-merge operation on a digital computer is disclosed, which gains efficiency by reading input file blocks sequentially. The method takes into consideration the fact that records can be read in any order if they are subsequently to be sorted. Input from disk is processed by reading the working disk directory maintained by the operating system to determine all of the blocks associated with the input data to be sorted. The data block identities so determined are sorted in accordance with their physical location on the disk, thereby providing a sequential order for reading. The input data is read in this sequential order, and then, using largely conventional methods, sorted into one or more strings and merged as necessary to form the fully sorted output. Since the original record order in the file is known from the working directory that has been read, that order can be utilized if and as necessary, for example to preserve the original order of records with equal keys.

  • Patent number: 6322212
    Abstract: An improved eyeglass retainer is disclosed, having an annular closure attaching to the eyeglass frames. The annular closure draws the material of the retainer over the attachment means of the retainer, and bunches and constricts it in front of the attachment means, so as to hide said attachment means from view, and to maintain a close fit of the retainer material with the eyeglass frames, even in the presence of winds and inertial forces. In an alternate embodiment, the annular closure in combination with retaining enclosures located on the eyeglass temple pieces secures the retainer to the temple pieces.
