  • Publication number: 20190298473
    Abstract: A flexible, sterilizable pouch includes a first wall coupled to a second wall and a cavity defined between the first wall and the second wall. The cavity is configured to receive a medical device, and the pouch is configured to seal the medical device within the cavity. At least one of the first wall and the second wall of the pouch includes two layers. Each layer is coupled to the adjacent layer such that a breach in any one layer of the multi-layered wall will not breach the seal of the pouch. A pocket may be formed between the layers of the multi-layered wall and may include a gas under pressure to inflate the corresponding wall to an inflated state.

  • Publication number: 20190267681
    Abstract: Lead from lead acid battery scrap is recovered in two separate production streams as clean grid lead and as high-purity lead without smelting. In preferred aspects, lead recovery is performed in a continuous process that uses an aqueous electroprocessing solvent and electro-refining. Spent electroprocessing solvent and/or base utilized to treat lead paste from the lead acid battery scrap can be recycled to the recovery process.

  • Publication number: 20190253319
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a classification device in a computer network analyzes data from a given device in the computer network, and classifies the given device as a particular type of device based on the data. The classification device may then determine whether a manufacturer usage description (MUD) policy exists for the particular type of device. In response to there being no existing MUD policy for the particular type of device, the classification device may then determine patterns of the analyzed data, classify the patterns into context-based policies, and generate a derived MUD policy for the particular type of device based on the context-based policies. The classification device may then apply one of either the existing or derived MUD policy for the given device within the computer network.

  • Patent number: 10378976
    Abstract: A balance device comprises first, second and third components. The first, second and third components include substantially cylindrical first, second and third central portions, respectively, and which are coaxial with one another. The balance device further comprises a first set of connectors for coupling the first component to the third component and a second set of connectors for coupling the second component to the third component. The connectors accommodate axial movement in response to relative axial forces between the first and second components and minimise rotational movement about the axial direction in response to relative axial torque between the first and second components.

  • Patent number: 10346761
    Abstract: Example methods and mechanisms are described herein for implementing and adiabatically operating a topological quantum computing (TQC) phase gate that complements the existing Clifford operations, and thereby allows universal quantum computation with Majorana systems. Further embodiments include a testing system for the phase gate that is feasible with Majorana zero modes and demonstrates violations of the CHSH-Bell inequality. Further, the design used for the testing of the inequality leads directly to a practical platform for performing universal TQC with Majorana wires in which explicit braiding need never occur.

  • Publication number: 20190173761
    Abstract: Automatic, adaptive stimulus generation includes receiving, at a network device that is associated with a network or system, analytics data that provides an indication of how the network or system is responding to a set of test stimuli introduced into the network or system to facilitate an analysis operation. The network device analyzes the analytics data based on an intended objective for the analysis operation and generates control settings based on the analyzing. The control settings control creation of a subsequent stimulus to be introduced into the network or system during subsequent execution of the analysis operation.
