  • Publication number: 20190332646
    Abstract: A document processing system receives a body of an e-mail message from an extension in an e-mail system and parses it to identify items that are to be included in a document created within the document processing system. The document processing system creates a document and populates it with the items identified in the body of the e-mail message and returns the created document to the extension in the e-mail system for interaction by a user.

  • Patent number: 10436430
    Abstract: A lighting system includes a housing, a lighting element at least partially disposed in the housing, an electrical communication system in communication with the lighting element, and a sensor disposed on a portion of the housing, the sensor being in communication with the lighting element via the electrical communication system, and a first environmental condition sensed by the sensor causes the lighting element to operate when the lighting system is disposed in a first operational orientation and a second environmental condition sensed by the sensor causes the lighting element to operate when the lighting system is disposed in a second operational orientation, the first environmental condition being different from the second environmental condition.

  • Publication number: 20190300844
    Abstract: Production of nutrient-rich media, from an initial minimal medium, the rich media being suitable for cultivating heterotrophic cells, is described. These methods employ gas fermentation of photoautotrophic and/or chemoautotrophic microbes, under chemoautotrophic conditions, using carbon in common industrial waste gases to feed the growing biomass. The microbes also transform some of the carbon into organic nutrients that are released into the minimal medium thereby enriching the minimal medium. In further methods the nutrient-rich medium is then used to cultivate heterotrophic cells.

  • Patent number: 10262473
    Abstract: Systems and methods for determining a status of a vehicle suspension system are disclosed. A vertical acceleration of the vehicle relative to a road surface is determined based on a position of a vehicle body. Based on a predetermined period of time, a peak value that corresponds to the vertical acceleration is calculated. The peak value is compared to a target peak value and, when the peak value meets a preset criteria, a notification of potential suspension degradation is issued.

  • Patent number: 8657565
    Abstract: A pump for an inflatable device includes a housing that defines a blower chamber configured to be inserted into the inflatable device. The blower chamber includes an exhaust port configured to communicate air out of the pump. The housing also defines a deflation port, which is adjacent to the blower chamber, and an attachment portion configured to make a substantially airtight seal with the surface of the inflatable device. The pump also includes a removably attachable cover configured to substantially cover the blower chamber. The cover defines an opening through which the deflation port extends, and at least one vent through which air is communicated into the pump.

  • Patent number: 8590527
    Abstract: A solar collector system includes a plurality of frames. Each frame includes at least a pair of spaced apart side members, a plurality of cross members connected to the side members, the cross members pivotally moveable from a shipping configuration to a deployed configuration wherein in the deployed configuration, each cross member is positioned relative to an adjacent cross member with a predetermined angle, and a plurality of stantions extending from the frames. The solar collector system further includes a plurality of heliostats, each heliostat mounted to one of the stantions, and a plurality of ballasts coupled to the frames, each ballast having a lower surface contacting the ground without substantially penetrating the ground to maintain a position of the frames on the ground.

  • Publication number: 20100290931
    Abstract: A hand-actuated pump includes a cylinder with a proximal end and a distal end. The distal end defines an opening. The hand-actuated pump also includes a piston with a proximal end. The proximal end of the piston is configured to be slidably inserted into the distal end of the cylinder. An exhaust port is positioned at the proximal end of the cylinder and includes a coupler that is configured to be removably attached to an inflatable object and to communicate air to the inflatable object. The coupler is also configured to be selectively locked in an extended position and a closed position.
