  • Publication number: 20200256647
    Abstract: An example barrier can be switchable between an at least partially collapsed state and at least partially expanded state (e.g., a deployed state). For example, the barrier can be formed from a sheet and a plurality of rigid sections (e.g., rigid panels) attached or incorporated into the sheet. The barrier can also include a plurality of hinges, such as hinge lines, between the panels that are formed from the sheet. The hinges enable the barrier to be rigid foldable (e.g., the hinges can fold and unfold while the rigid sections remain stiff and rigid) between the expanded and collapsed states.

  • Publication number: 20190325532
    Abstract: Computer-implemented methods and systems are provided that generate and store data representing signals and recommendations between account holders of a professional social network. Each signal identifies interest of a first account holder in a second account holder. Characteristic signal weights and total recommendation weights can be calculated and stored for the account holders. Signal weight data of a given account holder can be displayed as part of the profile of the given account holder. Characteristic signal weights of a plurality of account holders that match a job opening or opportunity can be used to rank or filter the plurality of account holders in referring the plurality of account holders to a party associated with the job opening. Characteristic signal weights associated with a plurality of job openings or opportunities can be used to rank or filter the associated job openings or opportunities in notifying at least one account holder.

  • Publication number: 20190226814
    Abstract: An example barrier can be switchable between an at least partially collapsed state and at least partially expanded state (e.g., a deployed state). For example, the barrier can be formed from a continuous sheet and a plurality of rigid sections (e.g., rigid panels) attached or incorporated into the continuous sheet. The barrier can also include a plurality of hinges, such as hinge lines, between the panels that are formed from the continuous sheet. The hinges enable the barrier to be rigid foldable (e.g., the hinges can fold and unfold while the rigid sections remain stiff and rigid) between the expanded and collapsed states.

  • Publication number: 20190188806
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method and system is provided that involves a plurality of users of a social network. The method and system are configured to interact with the plurality of users to generate recommendations, wherein each recommendation is made by a first user and recommends a second user, and store data representing the recommendations. Total recommendation weights corresponding to the plurality of users as well as recommendation weights corresponding to the recommendations are dynamically calculated, and data representing the total recommendation weights corresponding to the plurality of users and data representing the recommendation weights corresponding to the recommendations is stored in data storage. Data representing the total recommendation weight corresponding to a given user can be displayed in conjunction with the display of at least part of a profile of the given user.
