  • Publication number: 20140224803
    Abstract: A two-piece tamper-evident and tamper-resistant container having a base, a lid and a welded hinge connecting the lid and base to one another for use in packing, identifying and selling fresh food items and the like. A rim about an upper periphery of the base engages an identically contoured flange about a lower periphery of the lid, and a protective lip integral to and extending from an outermost end of the rim prevents access to the lip making the tear-strip of the hinge the only possible access point of the container. Any tampering to access the inside of the container would be made evident by a torn or missing welded hinge.

A rim about an upper periphery of the base engages an identically contoured flange about a lower periphery of the lid, and a protective lip integral to and extending from an outermost end of the rim prevents access to the lip making a pull-tab of the frangible hinge the only possible access point of the container. Any tampering to access the inside of the container would be made evident by a broken or separated hinge.

  • Patent number: 7773455
    Abstract: Methods for generating a time lapse difference image. In one implementation, the method includes estimating a trace in a first seismic survey data set at each trace coordinate of a second seismic survey data set, estimating a trace in the second seismic survey data set at each trace coordinate of the first seismic survey data set and calculating trace differences between the first seismic survey data set and the second seismic survey data set at each trace coordinate of the first seismic survey data set and the second seismic survey data set.
