  • Patent number: 8982414
    Abstract: A method, non-transitory computer readable medium, and apparatus for updating a prose attribute entry based upon one or more print job parameters of a print job order are disclosed. For example, the method detects a mismatch between the one or more print job parameters of the print job order and a prose attribute field of a print job request, presents an option to update the prose attribute entry in the prose attribute field corresponding to the one or more print job parameters of the print job order that are mismatched, receives a confirmation to update the prose attribute entry in the prose attribute field and updates the prose attribute entry to include the one or more print job parameters that were mismatched.

  • Patent number: 8941874
    Abstract: A method, non-transitory computer readable medium, and apparatus for entering data in a print order based upon a prose attribute are disclosed. For example, the method receives a print job request comprising a prose attribute field that comprises the prose attribute, analyzes the prose attribute to identify one or more print job parameters as data for the print order, identifies one or more fields in the print order that correspond to the one or more print job parameters, and populates the one or more fields with the data obtained from the prose attribute.

  • Publication number: 20140107429
    Abstract: Described are methods, systems, and mediums for testing neuromechanical and neurocognitive function which reflect physical and mental compromise that may be associated with, for example, traumatic brain injury (TBI). In particular, a computer-executed method, system, and computer readable medium for testing neuromechanical and neurocognitive function of a subject are described which measure a subject's performance in a test comprising one or more test modules designed to challenge neuromechanical and neurocognitive function and compare the performance to one or more baselines to evaluate physical and mental compromise.

  • Patent number: 8688997
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention provides a system that uses digital certificates to facilitate enforcing licensing terms for applications that manipulate documents. During operation, the system obtains a credential, wherein the credential includes a private key and a digital certificate containing a corresponding public key. This digital certificate also contains a profile specifying allowed operations which can be performed on documents signed with the credential. Next, the system digitally signs a document using the credential, so that the resulting signed document is signed with the private key and includes a copy of the digital certificate with the profile specifying the allowed operations. The certificate issuer can subsequently revoke the digital certificate (which effectively revokes the license) if teens of a license agreement associated with the digital certificate are violated.

  • Patent number: 8472093
    Abstract: A machine-implemented process determines web press printing capabilities and costs of different printing organizations using a processor. The printing capabilities comprise a number of printing units and a number of supply roll stands supplying continuous print media to the printing units. A printing request is received from a print customer through a graphic user interface. The printing request is evaluated using the processor to determine printing request requirements. A comparator compares the printing request requirements with the printing capabilities and costs to identify capable printing organizations of the different printing organizations that have abilities to process the printing request. The processor calculates different print choices and costs based on the printing capabilities and costs of the capable printing organizations and outputs the different print choices and costs to the print customer through the graphic user interface.

  • Patent number: 4343570
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a support system and method which permits the self-driving supporting columns after the structure has been fully assembled in place and which utilizes the gravitational force acting on this structure to achieve self-driving of the columns in a predetermined direction (e.g., vertically). In this manner, pile driving, predrilling deepholes or preparation of concrete footings can be avoided. The support system of the present invention is also provided with means for resisting movement of the columns out of alignment with the predetermined direction as they are self-driven into the substrate and means for maintaining the structure in a predetermined elevation (e.g., horizontal) as the columns are driven. The system can also include many means for maintaining the structure at a predetermined height relative to the substrate over which it is supported.

  • Patent number: 4251240
    Abstract: A device for separating air entrained in, and associated with, liquid being pumped. The device comprises a tank member communicating with the intake chamber of a liquid pump and with a vacuum pump. Disposed within the tank member is an open container member having a liquid conduit connected with the intake chamber of the liquid pump. Integrally connected with the top of the tank member is a baffle member which extends downwardly into the container member in such manner that liquid flowing into the container from the tank member flows downwardly between the inner surface of the container and the outer surface of the baffle. Disposed within the container are means responsive to the level of the liquid within the container member. A first valve member responsive to the movement of the liquid level is provided for the discharge of gases into a gas exhaust chamber and out of the device through the vacuum pump.
