  • Publication number: 20180176065
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for initial cell search and selection using beamforming are described. An apparatus is configured with multiple receive beams and includes an antenna and a processor. The processor is operatively coupled to the antenna and sweeps a respective one of the multiple receive beams during each of multiple synchronization sub-frames, using a pre-defined sweep time and dwell period, to detect a synchronization signal. The processor also obtains symbol timing information and a synchronization signal index from the detected synchronization signal. The obtained synchronization signal index corresponds to a synchronization signal index of the set. The process decodes a first broadcast channel using the obtained symbol timing information, the obtained synchronization signal index and a predefined or blind-coded symbol distance between the detected synchronization signal and the first broadcast channel.

  • Publication number: 20160038955
    Abstract: A shower spa attachment has a number of variable spray configuration shower heads connected together which can be connected directly to the existing water pipe or via a diverter valve to the existing shower head. The shower spa attachment can be fitted directly to the pipe and used without the diverter or existing top shower head or connected to the diverter valve and used in conjunction with the top shower head. Each of the variable spray heads may be removably attached to the shower wall in any desired configuration via flexible hose interconnection. Alternatively, the spray heads may be mounted on a hanging panel.

  • Publication number: 20150372843
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for performing pulse shaping using different windowing functions for different sub-bands of a transmission is disclosed. A method for use in a wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) may include the WTRU receiving data symbols. The WTRU may assign the data symbols to a plurality of subcarriers in different sub-bands and map the data symbols on each of the plurality of subcarriers in the different sub-bands to a plurality of corresponding subcarriers of an inverse fast Fourier transform (IFFT) block. The WTRU may take an IFFT of the block for each sub-band and pad an output of the IFFT block with a prefix and a postfix for each sub-band. The WTRU may apply a windowing function to an output of the padding for each sub-band and form a composite signal for transmission by adding an output of the windowing of each sub-band. The WTRU may transmit the signal.

  • Publication number: 20140274727
    Abstract: Means and methods of predicting future dental problems are disclosed. Molecular tests use biological matter from a patient to obtain information regarding various genes. The tests and methods generate displays and reports regarding genetic risk pertaining to cavities, tooth decay and other disorders.

  • Patent number: 7105808
    Abstract: Ion mobility spectrometer. The spectrometer includes an enclosure for receiving a sample therewithin and an electron beam window admits an electron beam into the enclosure to ionize the sample in an ionization region. A shutter grid is spaced apart from the ionization region and means are provided for sample ion preconcentration upstream of the shutter grid. The ion preconcentration is effective to reduce space charge resulting in a lowered threshold detection level.

  • Publication number: 20020120687
    Abstract: A method for communicating communication network availability information regarding an individual to at least one subscriber of the individual's availability information. According to one embodiment, the method includes detecting whether the individual is present on at least one communication network and determining availability of the individual for each access level of a profile of the individual. The method further includes publishing via a network the availability of the individual to the subscriber based on an access level of the subscriber and the presence information. In addition, the method includes filtering the availability of the individual when it is detected that the individual is no longer present on the communication network.

  • Publication number: 20020116461
    Abstract: A presence and availability management server and a method for communicating communication network availability information regarding an individual to at least one subscriber of the individual's availability information. According to one embodiment, the server includes a presence detection engine for detecting whether the individual is present on at least one communication network. The server also includes an availability management engine in communication with the presence detection engine for publishing to the subscriber via a network whether the individual is available on the communication network.

  • Publication number: 20020116336
    Abstract: A method and device of displaying contact information of a plurality of individuals for a subscriber of the contact information. According to one embodiment, the method includes, for each individual, receiving one or more addresses of the individual for each communication network for which the individual is available to the subscriber. The method also includes, for each individual, generating a single summary indicator that identifies the individual and summarizes whether the individual is capable of receiving certain data content types, whether the individual is available on certain network types or device types, and/or whether certain groups of people are available. In addition, the method includes displaying the single summary indicator for each individual to the subscriber.

  • Patent number: 4183547
    Abstract: This device is an improved wheelie skateboard having a substantially flat horizontal portion and an integrally connected inclined rear kicktail portion. The front end of the horizontal portion has a pair of conventional skateboard wheels on a truck having a pivot bolt connected to the axle at the rear of the axle, and capable of swivelling in a conventional manner. The inclined kicktail portion has a pair of conventional skateboard wheels having a pivot bolt forward of the axle and, likewise, capable of swivelling in a normal manner. The central pair of wheels is so mounted as to be incapable of swivelling, either because of the nut on the pivot bolt (of a conventional truck), which is to the rear of the axle, is so tightened, or because a horizontal arm portion on a non-conventional truck extends from the truck rearwardly of the axle to forwardly thereof, so that such pair of wheels may tilt but may not swivel.
