  • Publication number: 20110023312
    Abstract: The digital scale is an improved, digital measuring device for all aspects of construction and construction estimating. Every scale used for construction today is included in this digital device. Instead of requiring several different scales for all types of engineering and architectural projects, with this device, one scale is all that is needed. This device also includes the capability to measure every part of a construction roof. All rafters, including hips, valleys, common and mixed pitch valley and hip rafters can be easily measured by simply setting this device on the drawings themselves. Square footage of the roof area for figuring roof felt, roof decking, shingles, and nails is quick and easy with this tool. Whether the rafters are being measured from the bird's eye view (top of roof) or the elevation views (all 4 sides), this device is accurate within 0.032?.

  • Publication number: 20050209295
    Abstract: The present invention relates to novel compounds and methods of use for inhibition and prevention of cell adhesion and cell adhesion-mediated pathologies. This invention also relates to pharmaceutical formulations comprising these compounds and methods of using them for inhibition and prevention of cell adhesion and cell adhesion-mediated pathologies. The compounds and pharmaceutical compositions of this invention can be used as therapeutic or prophylactic agents. In particular, methimazole derivatives and tautomeric cyclic thiones have the ability to inhibit the adhesion and the migration of leukocytes. In addition to being active anti-inflammatories, the methimazole derivatives and tautomeric cyclic thiones and their physiologically tolerable salts, derivatives and prodrugs are generally suitable for the treatment (i.e., for the therapy and prophylaxis) of diseases that are based on the interaction between VCAM-1 and its ligands or can be influenced by an inhibition of this interaction.
