  • Publication number: 20200065415
    Abstract: Historical analysis of query patterns is used to discover relationships between data sets. These relationships are used to make optimal decisions about where to place data in a globally distributed environment in which locality of data is an important factor in providing good query performance. A mixed integer programming model is used to solve a constraint based system which balances the need to have data kept local with other data and the cost of replicating data across a low-bandwidth network.

  • Publication number: 20190318438
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed to systems, methods, and computer program products for a real-time inter-entity associate decision and relay. In this way, the invention provides a decision engine for decision making for uniform associate decisioning across an entity. The system comprises a platform agnostic decision and relay system for an entity that integrates across entity platforms, wherein integrating across entity platforms comprises reading and transmitting, compatibly, in one or more platform. The invention extracts data points from one or more platforms within an entity about an associate along with learning resources to generate a decision and relay system for the particular associate. The invention tailors decisions to identify specific functions or actions an associate should perform along with pinpointed direction for identification of how those functions are formulated and performed.

  • Patent number: 7892155
    Abstract: The exercise devices disclosed herein are configurable to allow a user to perform various exercises. The exercise device can include an adjustable bench assembly connected with a frame supporting a cable-pulley assembly providing a user interface with a resistance system. A user can interface with an actuation component to pull resistance cables against resistance from the resistance system. Various exercise accessories can be provided that are easily connected with and removed from the exercise device to allow a user to perform different exercises. Some examples of exercise accessories are used to configure the exercise device for squat, abdominal, leg extension, leg curl, and arm curl exercises.

  • Patent number: 6203773
    Abstract: Alpha alumina particles are made by heating particles of alumina with an aqueous solution containing a dissolved fluorine-containing compound and an acid; separating the particles from the solution and then calcining the particles at a temperature not greater than about 1025° C. The alumina particles preferably have an LOI in the range of about 1-20 wt. %; more preferably about 1-6 wt. %. Alpha alumina particles of the invention are more readily ground into smaller particles than alpha alumina particles made by calcining at higher temperatures. The remaining soda in the alpha alumina is found to be highly soluble in hot water. The process produces low soda content (0.01 wt. % Na2O or less) alpha alumina crystals from alumina feedstocks with 0.5 wt. % or more initial soda levels. The alpha alumina crystals produced are as large as 30-40 microns. Most typically; the size range is between 2 and 8 microns.
