  • Patent number: 10677547
    Abstract: A pump action firearm with bolt slide locking mechanism includes a receiver, a barrel assembly coupled by the receiver, and a bolt slide slideably disposed in the receiver for movement between rearward open breech and forward closed breech positions. A slide lock pivotably mounted to the bolt slide about a pivot axis is selectively engageable with an interference surface on the receiver. When the firearm is fired via a trigger pull, a rotatable hammer strikes and actuates the slide lock. The slide lock rotates from a locked position engaged with the interference surface to prevent the slide from moving out of the closed breech position, to an unlocked position disengaging the interference surface. This allows the slide to be manually moved to the open breech position for cycling the action. A manual actuator is provided for unlocking the slide lock absent a trigger pull.

  • Publication number: 20190378150
    Abstract: Various applications, systems and methods for using, and enhancing V2V communications for various purposes are described. These systems and methods leverage various aspects of satellite radio broadcasts in combination with V2V communications. In some embodiments, V2V-enabled vehicles can receive advertisements or offers from RSEs, or even other V2V enabled vehicles, in a defined Target Region, which may then be played to a user in-vehicle once a given Trigger Region has been entered. By logging all advertisements or offers played to a user and sending the log to an RSE, for example, and from there to a content provider (e.g., an SDARS service operator), verified delivery of advertisements is achieved, which allows the content provider to obtain significant revenues from advertisers.

  • Publication number: 20170143556
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to methods and apparatuses for rejecting defective absorbent articles from a converting line. At a downstream portion of a converting process, a continuous length of absorbent articles may be subjected to a final knife and cut to create discrete absorbent articles advancing on a first carrier. From the first carrier, the discrete absorbent articles may be transferred to a transfer apparatus, which in turn, transfers the discrete absorbent articles to a second carrier. The transfer apparatus may include carrier members that orbit around an axis of rotation and may be adapted to receive the absorbent articles from the first carrier and transfer the absorbent articles to the second carrier. Defective absorbent articles may be detected by an inspection system, which may be operably connected with the transfer apparatus and/or the first carrier to remove the defective absorbent articles from the converting process.

  • Publication number: 20140052514
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a crawl program or other automated program, which acquires links to various merchants from the merchant's webpage automatically, converts hyperlinks to those web pages into referral links to those web pages routed through the central depository opposed directly to the merchant. In an alternative, embodiment automated programs convert merchant web pages into referral links directly to the merchant. In this way the referred user can keep track of the discounts.

  • Publication number: 20140052516
    Abstract: In some embodiments, for resellers of goods, multiple referral rates can be combined to yield a greater total referral rate. For example, the manufacturer can offer one referral rate and the reseller can offer a second referral rate. The central depository combines the two referral rates to have a greater total referral rate, which is paid to the referring user. The central depository also displays the combined referral rate in a list for the referring user. Upon activation, the central depository collects payment from all parties offering a referral rate in this example the manufacture and the reseller. The central depository can collect payment separately for each party (the manufacture and the reseller). In an alternative embodiment, the central depository collects payment from one party for both referral rates. In this embodiment the party who pays the combine referral rate collects payment from the other party.

  • Publication number: 20140052515
    Abstract: In some embodiments, the process involves performing similar functions articulated by the referral and discount process contained in U.S. patent application Ser. Nos. 13/551,983, 13/552,011, and 13/552,031 only without the user creating an account. Rather, the central depository stores the discounts with the internet protocol address, (hereinafter “i.p. address” or “ip address”) of the referred user and transfers the referred user to the merchant with an i.p. address opposed to a referred user identity. In an additional embodiment, the merchant stores the discount with the i.p. address of the referred user without storing the discount with a referred user account that the referred user creates.

  • Patent number: 8601273
    Abstract: A measurement engine performs active platform observation. A program includes an integrity manifest to indicate an integrity check value for a section of the program's source code. The measurement engine computes a comparison value on the program's image in memory and determines if the comparison value matches the expected integrity check value. If the values do not match, the program's image is determined to be modified, and appropriate remedial action can be triggered. The integrity manifest can include a secure signature to verify the validity of the integrity manifest.
