  • Patent number: 8556201
    Abstract: In a method and equipment for conditioning a heavy fraction high in plastics, which is obtained by conditioning low-metal scrap high in plastics, which originate at least in part from shredder processes of scrap vehicles, the method includes: isolating metal parts from the heavy fraction high in plastics; reducing the size of the metal-reduced heavy fraction high in plastics that remains after the isolation of the metal parts; splitting up of the metal-reduced heavy fraction high in plastics, that remains after the isolation of the metal parts, into fractions high in plastics having different grain sizes; conditioning the separated fractions high in plastics at least partially in separate processes. The equipment includes appropriate devices for carrying out the foregoing processes. A highly pure granulate fraction may be obtained, which may be fed to material utilization.

  • Publication number: 20130166675
    Abstract: A computerized method for accessing business object data stored in a data buffer of a server computer includes providing an application program interface (API) having a function for specifying a set of paths through a business object stored as a data structure in a data buffer of a server computer. Each of the paths included in the set of paths specifies a plurality of nodes of the business object for accessing hosted data at the plurality of nodes. The method further includes receiving a set of parameters for the function of the API. The set of parameters specify the set of paths. The method further includes issuing the set of parameters to the server computer, retrieving hosted data from the plurality of nodes for each path in the set of paths; and transmitting to a client the hosted data retrieved from the plurality of nodes.

  • Publication number: 20130128121
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, and computer-readable storage media for video completion that may be applied to restore missing content, for example holes or border regions, in video sequences. A video completion technique applies a subspace constraint technique that finds and tracks feature points in the video, which are used to form a model of the camera motion and to predict locations of background scene points in frames where the background is occluded. Another frame where those points were visible is found, and that frame is warped using the predicted points. A content-preserving warp technique may be used. Image consistency constraints may be applied to modify the warp so that it fills the hole seamlessly. A compositing technique is applied to composite the warped image into the hole. This process may be repeated until the missing content is filled on all frames.

  • Publication number: 20120036070
    Abstract: A modular transactional banking platform is disclosed that separates the chassis of the account from all of the remaining optional package features, allowing users to select and customize the various components they wish to package into their account. The banking platform is constructed using a modular one-to-many approach that separates the “chassis” from the “features” in a manner that enables customers (and the bank) to create multiple account combinations and the flexibility to change as their needs adjust. The process of account creation may be completed in a self-service manner in an online environment or in person with the assistance of a banker. The features of the account are then attached to the account chassis as money applications or money applications in a customer selected bundle or al a carte fashion.

  • Publication number: 20080047195
    Abstract: An apparatus and method to isolate at least a part of a plant from passage of things or materials of certain size or characteristics. In one aspect, a shroud or sock (10) of material can be removably placed over at least a part of the plant (3) with a releasable closure (13). The material is highly permeable to air and moisture and is substantially light transmissive. However, it has a pore size which blocks the undesirable materials or things (e.g., pollen or insects). The material can have a relatively light weight so that it can be optionally suspended by the plant (3) without significant effect on the growth or health of the plant. The material can have substantial tensile strength to resist deformation, tearing, or puncture during normal handling or in moderate to high winds. It can be utilized to provide a barrier over a part of a plant, substantially an entire plant, or a plurality of plants.

  • Publication number: 20080006627
    Abstract: A package assembly for automated aliquot and/or dispersal processes is provided. Embodiments of the present invention include, but are not limited to: first and second portions which cooperate to contain the aliquot, wherein a pair of flexure channels are defined in opposing sides of at least one of the first or second portions, the flexure channels cooperating to define a flexure axis extending through the pair of flexure channels. Thus, embodiments of the present invention may allow at least one of first and second portions of the package assembly to flex about the flexure axis in response to a force exerted on the package assembly such that the first and second portions separate in response to the force.

  • Publication number: 20070199074
    Abstract: Theft, distribution, and piracy of digital content (software, video, audio, e-books, any content of any kind that is digitally stored and distributed) is generally accomplished by copying it, if possible, or, if it is protected from being copied in any fashion, such piracy is based upon a number of reverse engineering techniques. Aside from the straightforward copying of unprotected content, all of these other methods require first an understanding of the protective mechanism(s) guarding the content, and finally an unauthorized modification of that protection in order to disable or subvert it. Methods that prevent a skilled individual from using reverse engineering tools and techniques to attain that level of understanding and/or prevent anyone from performing such modifications can offer significant advantages to content creators who wish to protect their products.

  • Publication number: 20070125155
    Abstract: A device and method for applying a wind force to a plurality of plants in an agricultural environment is provided to screen for selected wind-resistance traits in the plurality of plants. In one embodiment of the present invention, a device is provided including a generating device for creating a moving fluid stream to provide the wind force, a directing device, such as a duct and/or movable vane, for precisely and selectively directing the wind force towards a portion of at least one plant, and a controller for adjusting one or more parameters of the fluid stream. The device and/or method embodiments of the present invention may thus be used to selectively apply the wind force to one or more plants (or portions thereof) such that the plants may be evaluated with respect to one or more wind-resistant physical characteristics.
