  • Publication number: 20210323707
    Abstract: A rotary filling machine for filling containers with bridgeable dry materials includes a turret supporting a plurality of circumferentially spaced drop buckets and a plurality of funnel assemblies located under the drop buckets. A stationary slide plate is located vertically between the funnel assemblies and the drop buckets. When viewed in a direction of turret rotation, the slide plate has an upstream end, a downstream end, and inner and outer edges. A portion of the slide plate is tapered progressively in diameter toward its downstream end such that flow paths from the bottoms of the drop buckets to the inlet openings of the funnel assemblies increase progressively in diameter with the taper of the slide plate. Also provided is a funnel assembly and drop buckets provided with one more partitions that hinder the “snow-plowing of particles” along the edge of the associated fill opening in machine's fill plate rather than the sweeping of those particles into the fill opening.

  • Publication number: 20210289045
    Abstract: An example system and method facilitates operation of a networked software application that communicates with a network resource during periods of intermittent network connectivity and includes determining when a networked software application is offline and when it is online; selectively intercepting one or more request messages from the networked software application addressed to a network resource when the software application is offline, resulting in a store of intercepted request messages; detecting when the networked software application transitions from being offline to being online; and selectively issuing the one or more request messages to the network resource in a sequence in which the one or more request messages were stored in the store of intercepted request messages.

  • Publication number: 20210081263
    Abstract: An example system and method facilitates operation of a networked software application, i.e., client application which communicates with a network resource (e.g., web service) during periods of intermittent network connectivity, by selectively intercepting and shredding and/or unshredding service response messages. In a specific embodiment, the example system includes one or more pluggable shredders and unshredders that are used to explode a complex REpresentational State Transfer (REST) payload into its constituent structured primitive objects for ease of consumption by the User Interface (UI) of the client application. The exploded, i.e., shredded response message payloads are stored in local cache, where the cached data is strategically structured as compared to the received REST payload. One or more unshredders selectively reconstruct one or more REST response message payloads if client reissues the corresponding REST request message while offline.

  • Patent number: 10897461
    Abstract: An electronic image that includes information related to a pharmacy prescription of a user of a first account (e.g., a store account) is received from a client device. The pharmacy prescription information is electronically extracted from the electronic image, and a second account (e.g., a pharmacy account) is identified based thereon. If the user of the first account is different from the user of the second account and if the user of the second account has approved the user of the first account, the user of the first account is granted access to a subset of the information in the pharmacy account.

    Abstract: A system that executes a user editable application includes a user interface that includes a plurality of components organized in a tree structure. The system indicates which of the plurality of components may be editable by a user of the application. The system receives editing input from the user for an editable component, and then updates the component based on the editing input.

  • Patent number: 8058542
    Abstract: Techniques for gaining facility in the performance of jazz music by performing a sequence of patterns. Each pattern begins at a fixed interval from the preceding pattern in the sequence and the patterns are performed with perpetual motion between the patterns. The patterns are all performed with the same articulation and are systematically performed across the complete range of the instrument and across a complete set of key areas and modes. In an exemplary embodiment, the patterns are made up of eighth note octave scales played in four four time with notes played on the upbeat being slurred to notes played on the downbeat. The last note of one pattern is slurred to the first note of the next. In the exemplary embodiment, the sequences of patterns are performed in all keys and the scales are drawn from the major scale and modes that stem from the major scale.

  • Patent number: 7464934
    Abstract: A board game and methods of playing a board game are described herein. The board game involves the movement of a game piece based upon the generation of a random number. The game piece is moved until the movement causes a win or loss scenario, which may be conducive to gambling and making wagers. During the movement of the game piece, the bank may inchoately match the player's wager. The inchoate “cargo” excites, tempts, and entices the players to wager and increase player involvement.

  • Patent number: 7462977
    Abstract: A high temperature pressure transducer includes an extended tubular member having an opening from a front to a back surface. The tubular member is preferably fabricated from a metal. At the front end of the tubular member is a ceramic sensor face or tip which basically is a ceramic disk having a curved front surface and having an extending stem and which is inserted into the front opening of the tubular member. The column is of a given length and terminates in a back end. The back end has a predetermined portion which consists of two flat surfaces each on opposite sides. The back end containing the flat surfaces is thinner than the thickness of the column. On these flat surfaces are positioned suitable semiconductor piezoresistors. When a force is applied to the ceramic sensor face, it is transmitted axially through the tube or column where it is received by the sensors positioned on the flats. The sensors produce an output indicative of the force applied.
