  • Patent number: 10285684
    Abstract: A suture anchor assembly includes a main suture strand, a plurality of suture arms, and a plurality of suture anchor elements connected to the main suture strand by a suture arm. The suture anchor elements are configured to rest against a cortex of a bone to provide an anchor when they are in a deployed configuration. The suture anchor assemblies can be employed in place of or in addition to traditional suture anchors. The assemblies, kits, and methods described herein can be utilized in a variety of procedures and locations in the body where anchoring a graft or tissue adjacent a bone is desired, including, for example, rotator cuff repair and ligament (e.g., the anterior cruciate ligament or ACL) reconstruction and/or repair.

  • Patent number: 10243304
    Abstract: An electrical connector for high speed signals. The connector has multiple conductive elements that may serve as signal or ground conductors. A member formed with lossy material and conductive compliant members may be inserted in the connector. The conductive compliant members may be aligned with conductive elements of the connector configured as ground conductors. For a connector configured to carry differential signals, the ground conductors may separate pairs of signal conductors. The member may further include a conductive web, embedded within the lossy material, that interconnects the conductive compliant members. For a receptacle connector, the conductive elements may have mating contact portions aligned along opposing surfaces of a cavity. The conductive elements may have contact tails for attachment to a printed circuit board and intermediate portions connecting the mating contact portions and the contact tails. The conductive compliant members may press against the intermediate portions.

  • Publication number: 20190065638
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media that may be used to generate a Bayesian hierarchical model. One method includes generating a plurality of geographic regions by grouping one or more geographic sub-regions into each of the plurality of geographic regions. The method further includes receiving data for the geographic sub-regions, the data including responses, content inputs, content types, and location identifiers. The method further includes generating geo-level data from the received data by grouping the responses and content inputs of the received data based on a correlation of the location identifiers of the received data to the plurality of geographic regions. The method includes fitting a Bayesian hierarchical model based on at least the geo-level data, the content types, and the geographic regions and determining a content input mix for the content types for each geographic region based on the Bayesian hierarchical model and a content input constraint.

  • Publication number: 20180243188
    Abstract: A composition is provided, including an emulsion of an aqueous phase in a lipophilic phase, wherein the composition includes water, more than 8 wt % butylene glycol, one or more nonionic polysaccharides, and one or more lipophilic materials. The composition may be prepared by a method including the steps of a) mixing the one or more lipophilic materials with an aqueous mixture including water, the one or more nonionic polysaccharides, and the butylene glycol at a temperature in a range from 30 to 70° C. until homogeneity is reached; b) cooling the product of step a) to room temperature; and optionally c) adding ethanol and/or aluminum starch octenylsuccinate to the product of step b) with mixing. A method of caring for a keratin material in an animal includes applying an effective amount of the composition to the keratin material.

  • Publication number: 20180033302
    Abstract: A method of guiding a user to a suitable parking spot is a method used to aid a user in finding a suitable parking spot near a desired location. The method uses at least one remote server and a mobile computing device. The remote server manages information related to potential parking spots, and performs calculations to determine if a potential parking spot is a suitable parking spot. The mobile computing device monitors the location of the user and allows the user to interact with the method. A parking search request is sent from the mobile computing device to the remote server. Upon receiving the parking search request, the geospatial vehicle detection system is used to locate potential parking spots. At least one filtering process is used to identify suitable parking spots from the potential parking spots, before the suitable parking spots are displayed to the user.

  • Publication number: 20180025066
    Abstract: Technologies are described for performing database updates in a database environment where the database remains accessible during the updates. For example, a number of database clients may utilize a database environment for running queries or performing transactions. When an update to the database environment needs to be performed (e.g., a change to the database schema), instead of taking the database offline or queueing requests, the database can remain accessible to the database clients throughout the update process. The update process can include switching database connections between a first copy of the database and a second copy of the database that are being replicated. Technologies are also described for performing updates to application code used to interact with the database environment (e.g., alone or in combination with database system updates).
