  • Publication number: 20190156630
    Abstract: Methods of providing progressive casino games with multiple reward accrual features are presented. Progressive jackpots awards are determined via bonus valuation of selected symbols from a previous single spin outcome without the necessity of a second spin. When a single symbol or multiple symbols are included within more than one unique winning payline, the player's progressive award is comprised of the sum of each of the more than one unique payline awards.

  • Patent number: 10298493
    Abstract: Measures, including methods, systems and computer program products, for use in processing route data in a network comprising a plurality of autonomous systems. At a network device, route data defining at least one route for network traffic which is configured on at least one border network device is received from the at least one border network device. The at least one border network device is located at a border of an autonomous system in the plurality of autonomous systems. The network device processes the received route data according to a set of policies to generate modified route data. The network device transmits at least a part of the modified route data to the at least one border network device. The at least part of the modified route data is operable to instruct the at least one border network device to modify the behavior of the at least one route.

  • Publication number: 20180085594
    Abstract: The present invention provides both methods and devices for termination of arrhythmias, such as ventricular or atrial tachyarrhythmias. The device and method involves application of alternating current (AC) for clinically significant durations at selected therapeutic frequencies through the cardiac tissue to a subject experiencing arrhythmia. Methods are also provided to minimize or eliminate pain during defibrillation.

  • Patent number: 9669160
    Abstract: A portable infusion pump can communicate with continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to receive continuous feedback relating to a user's blood glucose level during insulin or other medicament therapy and can automatically deliver insulin to a user when the CGM data indicates a need for additional insulin. Because patient behavior can interfere with the accuracy and efficacy of such closed loop or semi-closed loop therapy, a system can employ various mechanisms for manual temporary suspension of closed-loop therapy when a patient is aware that current or future behavior may inhibit therapy.

  • Publication number: 20160331447
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to device and method for electrically modulating the function of nerves that control sympathetic activity of the renal arteries in the human body. The method includes modifying neural fibers that regulate sympathetic activity of renal tissue to accentuate or attenuate function. The present invention also includes an apparatus for executing methods to regulate renal sympathetic activity via intravascular lumen. Additionally, a system and method to transvenously ablate the renal nerves around the renal artery ostia are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20150342206
    Abstract: A flavor accelerator system to speed imparting flavor into a foodstuff within a container comprising a hollow needle, where the hollow need extends between a tip and an end; a hose attached to the end of the hollow needle, where the hose is attached to a carbon dioxide canister at an opposite end from the hollow needle; and an injection lid on the container, where the injection lid seals the container, and where the injection lid includes an inlet port within the injection lid; and an injection nipple at a top of the injection port, where the injection nipple receives the hollow needle; wherein the hollow needle injects carbon dioxide into the container through the inlet port within the injection lid to accelerate the speed at which the foodstuff is flavored.

  • Publication number: 20140366784
    Abstract: A transportable safe for storing at least one item in a secure compartment has access panel which is operated by an access device to grant selective access to the secure compartment. A communication system has a communication device which includes an input component configured to receive user input and a communication subsystem configured to: (i) communicate with an external device in response to the received user input, and (ii) communicate with and monitor usage of the access device, and transmit access device usage data to the external device. The communication device may include a processor, a memory for storing service request data. The processor may be configured to receive, as an input on the communication device, a service request, store the received service request in the memory, and transmit the service request to the external device.

  • Patent number: 8813990
    Abstract: A cargo container and method for transporting hazardous material includes a housing, a frame, and a lid, or, alternatively a door. The frame and housing define an opening and an interior storage space for containing the hazardous material. The lid or door is operatively connected to the frame and covers the opening for inhibiting access to the interior storage space. A first gasket fluidly seals the lid or door for inhibiting hazardous material from moving from the interior storage space to an outer environment. Additionally, the cargo container may include a second gasket, a seal arrangement, and/or a tortuous path for deflecting airborne hazardous materials from the first gasket and further inhibiting hazardous material from moving from the interior storage space to the outer environment.
