  • Publication number: 20220309464
    Abstract: The present invention discloses an electronic platform for users, such as show writers, to create show content for TV series, film and other formats. Unique, interrelated graphical user interfaces (GUIs) enable users with input devices and displays to enter, manipulate and review show content on virtual index cards displayed on electronic “white boards” enabling both in-person and remote collaboration of teams of writers, securely and efficiently.

  • Publication number: 20220245125
    Abstract: A data processing system with a dataset multiplexer that enables applications to be written to specify access to datasets as operations on logical datasets. During execution of an application by the data processing system, operations that access a dataset are implemented by accessing an entry in a dataset catalog for the logical dataset. That entry includes information to access the physical data source storing the logical dataset, including conversion of data from the format of the physical data source to the format of the logical dataset. An entry in the catalog may be created based on registration of a data source with the dataset multiplexer and may be updated automatically based on changes in storage of the dataset. This maintenance of the catalog may be partially or totally automated such that the system automatically adjusts to any changes in storage of the dataset without need for modification of any application.

  • Publication number: 20070154569
    Abstract: It has been surprisingly discovered that administration of nitrite to subjects causes a reduction in blood pressure and an increase in blood flow to tissues. The effect is particularly beneficial, for example, to tissues in regions of low oxygen tension. This discovery provides useful treatments to regulate a subject's blood pressure and blood flow, for example, by the administration of nitrite salts. Provided herein are methods of administering a pharmaceutically-acceptable nitrite salt to a subject, for treating, preventing or ameliorating a condition selected from: (a) ischemia-reperfusion injury (e.g., hepatic or cardiac or brain ischemia-reperfusion injury); (b) pulmonary hypertension (e.g., neonatal pulmonary hypertension); or (c) cerebral artery vasospasm.

  • Publication number: 20060252113
    Abstract: A method for the identification and treatment of pathogenic microorganism infections by inhibiting one or more enzymes in a metabolic pathway by inhibiting the conversion of substrate to produce the penultimate or ultimate product particularly by inhibiting the activity of one or more of the enzymes in the pathway, and compounds and pharmaceutical compositions for inhibiting infections of pathogenic microorganisms by inhibiting such enzymes.

  • Publication number: 20060182815
    Abstract: It has been surprisingly discovered that administration of pharmaceutically-acceptable salts of nitrite is useful in the regulation of the cardiovascular system. It has also been surprisingly discovered that nitrite is reduced to nitric oxide in vivo, and that the nitric oxide produced thereby is an effective vasodilator. These effects surprisingly occur at nitrite doses that do not produce clinically significant methemoglobinemia. These discoveries now enable methods to prevent and treat conditions associated with the cardiovascular system, for example, high blood pressure, pulmonary hypertension, cerebral vasospasm and tissue ischemia-reperfusion injury. These discoveries also provide methods to increase blood flow to tissues, for example, to tissues in regions of low oxygen tension.

  • Publication number: 20060130832
    Abstract: Containers for incrementally dispensing pressurized contents are described. The containers comprise a vessel suited to contain pressurized contents, a port integral with the vessel and through which pressurized contents contained in the vessel can be released from the vessel, preferably incrementally in approximately equal amounts, and a measuring device disposed in the vessel. The measuring device senses ambient conditions in the vessel and, directly or with other components, indicates, for example, the amount of pressurized contents remaining in the vessel and displaying it to an observer; methods for comparing the amount of contents actually released from the vessel compared to a theoretical constant; and methods for time logging (alone or in conjunction with the logging of other data) the actuation of the dispensing valve for comparison to a prescribed method. Devices for incrementally dispensing pressurized contents from such containers are also described.

  • Publication number: 20060131350
    Abstract: Containers for incrementally dispensing pressurized contents are described. The containers comprise a vessel suited to contain pressurized contents, a port integral with the vessel and through which pressurized contents contained in the vessel can be released from the vessel, preferably incrementally in approximately equal amounts, and a measuring device disposed in or otherwise associated with the vessel such that the quantity or amount of contents in the vessel can be measured or assessed. The measuring device senses ambient conditions in the vessel and, directly or with other components, indicates, for example, the amount of pressurized contents remaining in the vessel and displaying it to an observer. With appropriate ancillary components, the measuring device also enables the amount of contents actually released from the vessel during a particular actuation to be compared to a theoretical constant.
