  • Publication number: 20150190708
    Abstract: In a word guessing game, letters are grouped into words and the letters are associated with game positions. A player selects game positions and, if a letter is located at a selected game position, the letter is revealed to the player. The player may then attempt to guess the word which the letter is a part of. In a multi-player game, the player who determines all of the other player's words first is declared the winner. In a single player game, the player may be declared a winner if they determine all of the words within a period of time or number of position selections or guesses.

  • Publication number: 20100323134
    Abstract: The present invention is a laminate and resultant package expressing an aroma burst. The laminate or package is comprised of a polyolefin sealing layer; a pressure sensitive adhesive layer and microcapsules containing an active core material, the microcapsules dispersed in a resealably tacky pressure sensitive adhesive layer; the pressure sensitive adhesive sandwiched between at least two layers by being disposed along substantially an entire surface of the polyolefin sealing layer and in continuous and direct contact with a second polyolefin layer opposing and coextensive with the polyolefin sealing layer; and the microcapsules in the pressure sensitive adhesive layer having less tensile strength than the adhesive such that a fraction of the microcapsules rupture releasing core material such as an aroma or fragrance when the pressure sensitive adhesive layer is separated when the polyethylene and first polyolefin layers sandwiching the pressure sensitive adhesive are pulled apart.

  • Publication number: 20080313929
    Abstract: A step-in shoe of novel design that includes a heel strap that can be donned by the user without the necessity of manipulating the heel strap with the fingers to correctly position the heel strap about the user's heel. The step-in shoe is constructed from a novel, lofted foam material that permits the heel strap to flex downwardly as the foot starts to enter the body of the shoe, but automatically positions itself about the heel of the user as the user's foot fully enters the internal chamber of the body of the shoe.

  • Publication number: 20060006881
    Abstract: A test architecture performs calibration and site verification testing of the effectiveness of a radiation shielding structure within which electronic equipment is housed. An external subsystem is outside a shielding cabinet, and an internal subsystem resides with the electronic equipment within the shielded equipment housing proper. The external subsystem includes a host computer, which controls the operation of transmit and receive subsystems. An external receiver is selectively coupled by the host processor to either an RF receive antenna or to a current sense probe. All control signals from the external subsystem are conveyed into the shielded cabinet by way of fiber optic links, in order to preserve the shielding effectiveness of the cabinet. Having the source of test signals and its associated transmission antenna located within the shielded cabinet serves to minimize the impact of such signals on circuits within the environment outside the cabinet.
