  • Patent number: 11451430
    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling management operations and shared memory space are disclosed. A cloud cache management controller may receive multiple sets of service attributes. Each set of the multiple sets of service attributes may be related to a cloud cache service instance. The cloud cache management controller may receive a first cloud cache management request. The cloud cache management request may comprise a cloud cache management operation. The cloud cache management controller may retrieve a set of service attributes from the multiple sets of service attributes based on an evaluation of the cloud cache management operation. The cloud cache management controller may send the first cloud cache management request to a corresponding CCSI based on a priority value for the first cloud cache management request calculated based on the retrieved set of service attributes.

  • Publication number: 20220234970
    Abstract: Disclosed is a preparation method for triphenylchloromethane, comprising the following steps: adding hydrochloric acid or a mixture of hydrochloric acid and Lewis acid to a mixture of triphenylmethanol and an organic solvent; stirring for reaction; removing the water layer after the completion of reaction to obtain an organic solution containing triphenylchloromethane. In the method, the conversion rate of triphenylmethanol is almost quantitative to be above 99%, and the content of triphenylchloromethane in the product obtained is above 99%. The operation is simple, and no waste gas is generated. Therefore, the method is environmentally friendly and suitable for industrialized production and can achieve better economic benefits.

  • Patent number: 11162715
    Abstract: Standalone and self-contained cooling systems using compressed liquid and/or gas CO2 containers positioned in an insulated or non-insulated vessel encompassing a container which is either vertically positioned in an upright or an upside-down position. The liquid and/or gas CO2 coolant is then released into a capillary system or flow metering system to allow the CO2 to enter a second body to where the CO2 coolant properties may be leveraged. The second body includes, by way of example, a plate, a cushion, a spot treatment pad for a person's muscle, or a cooler. The temperature is controlled by a metering CO2 releasing system encompassing an electronic control device which sends alerts when pre-defined thresholds are exceeded. The invention's metering CO2 releasing system may be triggered by an electronic or a thermostatic valve or may be triggered manually or by an electronic solenoid.

  • Publication number: 20210198722
    Abstract: Methods of tagging cells with unique oligonucleotide “zipcode” constructs are provided. By these methods and associated compositions, cells in a multicellular structure such as a tissue section can be tagged with a construct, the unique composition of which is associated with the cells position in the multicellular structure. Subsequently, the multicellular structure can be dissociated into single cells and a single cell transcriptome analysis performed, as well as other types of single cell analyses. By preserving positional information in the analyzed single cells, biological processes within the tissue can be mapped. By these methods, the effects of the local environment surrounding a cell on its state and various functions can be elucidated, and intra-tissue processes can be mapped and observed. Likewise, coordinated actions by multiple cells within a tissue can be mapped and tracked over time.

  • Publication number: 20210189152
    Abstract: Polyurethane-based and epoxy-based coating compositions are described that provide coatings and adhesives that are clear, amphiphobic and durable. Both water and hexadecane readily slide off these surfaces without leaving a residue. Coatings with thicknesses ranging from about 10 nm to about 10 ?m exhibited excellent transmittance properties. Such films exhibited durability against abrasion, ink-resistance, anti-graffiti, anti-fingerprint, and strong adhesion to glass surfaces. The coatings are applicable to electronic devices, fabrics, glass, etc. to prepare optically clear, stain-resistant, and smudge-resistant surfaces.

  • Patent number: 10345015
    Abstract: Standalone and self-contained cooling systems using compressed liquid and/or gas CO2 containers positioned in an insulated or non-insulated vessel and consisting of a specially designed unit where the containers are vertically positioned in an upright or upside-down position. The liquid and/or gas CO2 coolant is then released into capillary tube(s) embedded into a heat transfer plate or heat exchanger thus leveraging the CO2 coolant properties. The temperature is controlled by a metering CO2 releasing system encompassing an electronic control device which can be operated remotely and/or via a touch screen and which sends alerts when pre-defined thresholds are exceeded. The invention's metering CO2 releasing system may be triggered by an electronic or a thermostatic valve or may be triggered manually or by an electronic solenoid. The invention's cooling system also encompasses check valves, which avoid liquid and/or gas CO2 from escaping when removing or replacing CO2 containers individually.

  • Patent number: 9817849
    Abstract: An image identifying method for offline and online synchronous operation is disclosed. When the mobile device focuses on an recognition target, images frames of an recognition target are retrieved and sent to an recognition server. The mobile device executes an offline recognition operation, and synchronously an recognition server executes an online recognition operation. A plurality of the matching data is saved in the mobile device, and a plurality of recognition data is saved in an recognition server, wherein the recognition data larger than the matching data. When the mobile device firstly generates the recognition result, the recognition result is displayed for user searching reference. If the mobile device receives an recognition result from the recognition server before the mobile device completing the recognition, the recognition result replied form the recognition server is displayed on the display monitor.
