  • Publication number: 20190300272
    Abstract: A pack having a group of tobacco industry products wrapped in a laminate to form a bundle is disclosed. The pack has a base containing the bundle, and a lid mounted to the base for rotation between open and closed positions. The laminate has an outer layer having a first cut that defines an outer layer region bounded by said first cut and, an inner layer having a second cut that defines an inner layer region bounded by said second cut. The inner layer region lies within the outer layer region. A part of the outer layer region is attached to an inside surface of the lid such that, as the lid is rotated into its open position, the inner and outer layer regions are lifted causing the inner and outer layers to delaminate in a peripheral region between the first and second cuts and an opening to be created in the laminate.

  • Publication number: 20190281131
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a method, system and computer program product for limiting client side data storage based upon client geolocation. In an embodiment of the invention, a method for the differentiated treatment of data at rest in a mobile device includes receiving in a cache manager a request to cache data in a cache of a mobile device. Also, a geolocation for the mobile device is retrieved contemporaneous with the receipt of the request. Thereafter, it is determined from the geolocation whether or not the mobile device is present within a restricted geographic zone. Finally, in response to determining that the mobile device is present within a restricted geographic zone, the cache manager is directed to cache the data in a cache in the mobile device. But, otherwise the cache manager is directed to cache the data in a cache disposed in the computer communications network.

  • Publication number: 20190240730
    Abstract: A three-dimensional printer includes a vessel containing a liquid in which a printed object can debind during fabrication. More generally, the vessel may contain any liquid medium selected to control or modify properties of a printed object during fabrication. For example, the liquid may also or instead impose a controlled thermal environment for the printed object, apply finishing materials to an exterior surface of the object, provide a component or catalyst for a reaction, or otherwise treat the printed object or control ambient conditions during printing.

  • Patent number: 10350682
    Abstract: Support structures are used in certain additive fabrication processes to permit fabrication of a greater range of object geometries. For additive fabrication processes with materials that are subsequently sintered into a final part, an interface layer is fabricated between the object and support in order to inhibit bonding between adjacent surfaces of the support structure and the object during sintering. Interface layers suitable for manufacture with an additive manufacturing system may resist the formation of bonds between a support structure and an object during subsequent sintering processes.

  • Publication number: 20190193159
    Abstract: In an aspect, multiple metallic base materials are mixed into a user-controlled multimetallic mixture and extruded into a net shape, which is thermally processed into a multimetallic and/or alloyed object. In another aspect, a superstructure is fabricated around an object, but physically isolated from the object, with a shape facilitating robotic handling of the superstructure, along with removal of powder from the object, after a three-dimensional printing process. In another aspect, a ceramic precursor is used to create a separable interface between a support structure and a sinterable object. More specifically, a sinterable structure is fabricated from a sinterable powder in an aqueous binder, and an interface layer is formed by depositing a ceramic precursor in a nonaqueous solution onto the sinterable structure. When the ceramic precursor is exposed to water in the aqueous binder, the ceramic can precipitate to form an unsinterable, ceramic interface layer between sinterable structures.

  • Patent number: 10325323
    Abstract: A social graph may be modeled as a collection of claims. Each claim is associated with an author, an audience, and an assertion about a fact. Probabilistic information may be collected from various sources for a claim, enabling a social networking system to evaluate a truthfulness of the assertion made in the claim. User-declared profile information may be evaluated as claims. A user, entity, or application may make claims about any assertions made in the social networking system. Reputation scores may be determined for users based on evaluations of their historical assertions. Claims may be evaluated for truthfulness using a probabilistic prediction model using heuristics analysis, regression analysis, and machine learning methods. A claims-based profile of users may be provided to viewers based on the contexts in which the claims were made. Viewers may view claims made about users, such as the users' biographical information, contact information, expertise, and interests.

  • Patent number: 10292717
    Abstract: Systems and methods to provide patient-specific cutting blocks that allow for bone resurfacing procedures, such as milling or burring, with simplified devices. A computer assisted surgical cutting block is produced having a surface region that matches with the surface region of a patient's bone to be altered. A cutting tool may be provided having a contoured bone mating surface and a contoured and patient-specific shaped cutting guide surface located in a plane above the bone mating surface. One or more channels are provided in the cutting block, and as the surgeon moves the cutting tool (a milling or burring, for example) in the channels, the tool cuts the bone both laterally along the surface of the bone and vertically into the bone according to the cutting guide surface and other preselected surface features of the cutting block.

  • Patent number: 10290366
    Abstract: A sample analysis and medical data acquisition system for patient management includes a first user interface (UI) display module for displaying a medical chart page that includes selectable items associated with patient management. The first UI display module displays a set of medical delivery systems associated with a selectable medical delivery selection item, from which a medical delivery system is chosen. The system includes a second UI display module, in communication with the first UI display module, for displaying parameter fields for entry of operation data associated with the chosen medical delivery system. Medical data is captured from a patient by an analyzer configured to perform analysis of samples from the patient. The medical data is analyzed in accordance with entered operation data. The system includes an analysis display module, in communication with at least the first UI display module, for displaying sample analysis results.

  • Publication number: 20190111480
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods are directed to binder jetting for forming three-dimensional parts having controlled, macroscopically inhomogeneous material composition. In general, a binder may be delivered to each layer of a plurality of layers of a powder of inorganic particles. An active component may be introduced, in a spatially controlled distribution, to at least one of the plurality of layers such that the binder, the powder of inorganic particles, and the active component, in combination, form an object. The object may be thermally processed into a three-dimensional part having a gradient of one or more physicochemical properties of a material at least partially formed from thermally processing the inorganic particles and the active component of the object.
