Abstract: A method and apparatus for managing session information. In one embodiment, a communication session is established between a client computer and a server computer. When the client computer and the server computer establish the communication session, the client or the server typically stores information about the communication session, which is referred to as “session information.” The session information is stored in a first log file stored in a persistent volatile memory and in a cache file stored in a volatile memory of the server. The cache file is reconstructed after a server failure by retrieving the session information stored in the first log file.
Abstract: Waste-treatment processes are enhanced through generation and introduction of specific biological populations customized to perform or favor specific, tasks either during the main process, or for solids minimization purposes in a post-treatment process. These bacteria may be grown from specialized mixes of activated sludge and waste influent by exposing these materials to controlled environments (e.g., in an off-line treatment area). They may then be added back to the main process to perform certain tasks such as converting particulate cBOD into soluble cBOD for utilization, to reduce high solids yield organisms by supplementing the population with low yield organisms, to improve nitrification/denitrification efficiency, or to disfavor filamentous biology such as Norcardia sp.
Abstract: The invention relates to a system and method for transmitting the same data to more than one client node substantially simultaneously. In one embodiment the invention relates to a method for transmitting the same data substantially simultaneously from an application executing on a server node to at least two client nodes.
Abstract: A Radiology Healthcare Network provides high quality, timely medical interpretations of radiological images on a national (e.g., across the U.S.) and regional basis. The images can include images created by conventional x-ray technology, computed radiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), ultrasound imaging, nuclear medicine, and mammography equipment. The invention includes the acquisition of these images from health care facilities, the conversion of these images to digital format, the routing of these converted images, the interpretation of these routed images, and the routing of the interpretations back to the originating facility. The images are routed (e.g., on a variety of high-speed digital and analog telecommunication networks) to the appropriate interpretation resource by an administrative site on the Network based on one or more requirements associated with the radiological study.

Abstract: A PbTe/PbEuSeTe buried quantum well diode laser and array and the method for making the same. The quantum well active region layer is buried between electrical and optical confinement regions which have an energy band gap greater than the active buried layer and an index of refraction less than the active layer. The buried structure enhances electrical and optical confinement, reduces threshold currents, and provides a stable single mode laser. The buried laser and array are produced using a two-step molecular beam epitaxy method.
