  • Patent number: 10138665
    Abstract: An enclosure assembly with concealed hinge system comprises a quadrilateral cabinet and a cover that is configured to swivel along a sidewall of the quadrilateral cabinet. The swiveling action of the cover with respect to the quadrilateral cabinet is enabled by the use of a first pair of hinges and at least one second hinge. The first pair of hinges is welded onto the corners of the sidewall, and the at least one second hinge is welded onto the sidewall between the first pair of hinges.

  • Patent number: 9983021
    Abstract: Timing information and deeper trip planning can enhance conventional mapping functionality. A user provides a specified time of arrival and/or departure information along with a starting and end point, and receives a travel route with estimated arrival and departure times based on time-specific information, such as traffic or construction at specific times of day. The user can choose or be prompted to add one or more waypoints along the way. The user can get recommendations for hotels, restaurants, points of interest, and other such locations based on location, time of day, travel time, or other such aspects. Upon selecting a waypoint, the amount of time the user will be at that waypoint and the additional driving time are used to adjust one or more other times of the trip, such as the starting or departure times, or times of other waypoints.

  • Publication number: 20160060779
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to apparatus and methods for recovering metals from fluid body(s) using electrodeposition, for instance for the recovery of metals from underwater/oceanic sources, e.g., in the vicinity of hydrothermal vents. It provides apparatuses for recovering at least one target metal substance from a body of a fluid, comprising: at least one pair (comprising a cathode and an anode) of electrodes, such that when the apparatus is used, at least one pair of the electrodes is presented to the body of fluid; and means for generating an electrical potential difference across the at least one pair of electrodes, so that the potential difference generated across the pair is such as to attract target metal substance(s) present in the body of fluid, for deposition on at least one cathode on the apparatus. It also provides methods for recovering metals from a body of fluid using electrodeposition and the described apparatus.

  • Publication number: 20140122992
    Abstract: A system, method, and apparatus for annotating an electronic document independently of its content is provided. According to one variation, a tablet and stylus-based computer is programmed with a document browser that permits a user to annotate documents viewed through the browser. The annotations are stored separately from the viewed document pages but are correlated with the pages such that when a previously annotated page is revisited, annotations relating to that page are retrieved and displayed on top of the page as an “ink” layer. Three different annotation modes are possible: ink, highlight, and erase. Each mode can be selected through a user interface supplied through the browser or through controls embedded in a document.

  • Patent number: 8422982
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for energizing a multi-channel LNBF containing multiple LNB(s) the LNBF connected to multiple IRDs. The number of IRDs present is detected. If more than one IRD is present, all LNBs are energized. If only one IRD is detected, power sufficient to supply the LNB the IRD has selected is supplied. Identification of which LNB the single IRD has selected may be determined by monitoring the presence of a desired voltage, frequency tone, and or series of frequency tones.
