  • Patent number: 10419912
    Abstract: A first wireless communication device (UE device) associated with a certain user (or included in a specified set/group of UE devices) may establish a first communication link with an accessory device according to a short-range radio access technology, and transmit link (pairing) information associated with the first communication link to a server, such as a cloud-based server. The server may share this (first) link information with other UE devices associated with the same user (or belonging to the same specified group of UE devices as the first UE device). Link information associated with the other UE devices (i.e. second link information) may equally be shared with the accessory device, and the other UE devices and accessory device may use the first link information and second link information in establishing respective communication links between any of the other UE devices and the accessory device without having to undergo a pairing procedure.

  • Patent number: 10413303
    Abstract: A method and device for reducing the damaging effects of radiant energy, blast, or concussive events includes applying pressure to at least one jugular vein to reduce the egress of blood from the cranial cavity during or before the incidence of the imparting event. Reducing blood outflow from the cranial cavity increases intracranial volume and/or pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid to reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury and injuries to the spinal column. Reducing blood outflow further increases the intracranial pressure and volume, and thereby increases the pressure and volume of the cochlear fluid, the vitreous humor and the cerebrospinal fluid to thereby reduce the risk of injury to the inner ear, internal structure of the eye and of the spinal column. In addition, increasing intracranial pressure and volume reduces the likelihood of brain injury and any associated loss of olfactory function.

  • Patent number: 10418805
    Abstract: A novel system is offered for supplying power from an input node to a load coupled to an output node. The system may have multiple switches coupled between the input node and the output node. One or more limiting circuits may be configured for controlling the switches so as to limit outputs of the switches. For example, the limiting circuits may limit current through the respective switches. One or more timers may set a delay period for indicating a fault condition after the limiting is initiated.

  • Publication number: 20190278365
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a control arrangement 10. The control arrangement 10 comprises computer apparatus 12, 18 storing a control function which controls computer software in dependence on control data received by the control function from a manually or voice operated user interface. The control arrangement also comprises a camera 14 providing image data to the computer apparatus 12, 18 in dependence on at least one image acquired by the camera. The computer apparatus 12, 18 recognises a facial expression in image data received from the camera 14 when the camera acquires an image of a face. The computer apparatus 12, 18 also operates the control function in dependence on the recognised facial expression, whereby the computer software is controlled by the facial expression instead of by operation of the manually or voice operated user interface.

  • Publication number: 20190281338
    Abstract: A computing device includes memory for storing commercial metadata and offer metadata harvested from within an offer distribution network. A processor compares the commercial metadata related to a broadcast commercial to be streamed to a client media device with the offer metadata related to available offers from offer providers, to generate a comparison. The processor then selects an offer from the available offers based on the comparison; determines when and over what video stream the broadcast commercial is to be streamed; detects that a screen device is paired to the client media device; and delivers the offer to a display of the screen device during streaming of the broadcast commercial over the video stream to the client media device. When a user of the screen device selects an indicia of the offer, the offer is collected into a virtual wallet from which the offer can be redeemed in various ways.

  • Patent number: 10407474
    Abstract: Aggregation is a major cause of the misbehavior of proteins. A system for modifying a protein to create a more stable variant is provided. The method involves identifying non-conserved hydrophobic amino acid residues on the surface of a protein, suitable for mutating to more hydrophilic residues (e.g., charged amino acids). Any number of residues on the surface may be changed to create a variant that is more soluble, resistant to aggregation, has a greater ability to re-fold, and/or is more stable under a variety of conditions. The invention also provides GFP, streptavidin, and GST variants with an increased theoretical net charge created by the inventive technology. Kits are also provided for carrying out such modifications on any protein of interest.

  • Patent number: 10412002
    Abstract: A method for processing packet data in a service provider environment includes, by a network-enabled data processing device within a server computer of the service provider environment, receiving packet data comprising header information and payload information. The header information is separated from the payload information. The separated header information is forwarded to a processor of the server computer for processing, without forwarding at least a portion of the payload information. At least one address of a storage location is received from the processor. The at least one address is associated with a logical-to-physical address mapping based on the header information. The payload information is stored in the storage location based on the at least one address.
