  • Publication number: 20190251367
    Abstract: A surveillance apparatus (2000) includes a first calculation unit (2020), an extraction unit (2040), and a notification unit (2060). The first calculation unit (2020) calculates a risk index value in a first region (40) on a current route (20). The risk index value of the first region (40) indicates a degree of concern that a risk (such as crowd confusion) caused by congestion of people occurs in the first region (40). For calculation of the risk index value in the first region (40), a captured image generated by a camera (50) is used. The extraction unit (2040) extracts a bypass route (30) when the risk index value of the first region (40) is equal to or greater than a predetermined threshold value. The notification unit (2060) notifies a user that a route through which a person is caused to pass is to be switched to the extracted bypass route (30).

  • Patent number: 10358810
    Abstract: The present invention is a discharge socket connecting a toilet main body and a discharge pipe. The discharge socket has a vertical conduit portion; and a bent conduit portion including an inflow port connected to the vertical conduit portion; an outflow port, connected to an inlet port of the discharge pipe; and a flow path, the flow path having a bent portion. A projecting portion is disposed on the bent portion, the projecting portion forming a projecting space which projects outward from the flow path. The projecting portion is formed so that the flow direction of discharge water flowing from the bent conduit portion into the inlet portion of the discharge pipe is changed to the center direction of the discharge pipe by the discharge water returning to the projecting space after flowing from the flow path into the projecting space.

  • Publication number: 20190194220
    Abstract: Novel tetrahydroisoquinoline derivative compounds are disclosed herein that may be used as an active ingredient for a pharmaceutical composition, and in particular, for a pharmaceutical composition useful for preventing or treating a disease or condition responsive to modulation of the contractility of the skeletal sarcomere. This may be accomplished, for example, by modulation of the troponin complex of the fast skeletal muscle sarcomere through one or more of fast skeletal myosin, actin, tropomyosin, troponin C, troponin I, and troponin T, and fragments and isoforms thereof. The tetrahydroisoquinoline derivative compounds can thus be used as an agent for preventing or treating 1) neuromuscular disorders, 2) disorders of voluntary muscle, 3) CNS disorders in which muscle weakness, atrophy, and fatigue are prominent symptoms, 4) muscle symptoms stemming from systemic disorders, and 5) dysfunctions of pelvic floor and urethral/anal sphincter muscle.

  • Publication number: 20190170376
    Abstract: [Problem to be Solved] To provide a gas humidity regulating method and a regulator that can regulate a temperature during humidity control and improve humidity-control efficiency. In an air humidity regulating method for gas subjected to treatment, a first medium 22 is caused to flow onto a heat exchanging pipe 17 of a gas-liquid contact part 18 in a dehumidifier 11; meanwhile, a second medium 24 is passed through the heat exchanging pipe 17. In this state, air is fed into a gas-liquid contact case 13 from an inlet port 14 and gas-liquid contact is made by the first medium 22 on the gas-liquid contact part 18 so as to absorb water content from the air into the first medium 22. The first medium 22 contains an ionic liquid having high absorbency. The temperature of the first medium 22 is regulated by the second medium 24. After that, treated air is discharged from an outlet port 15 of the gas-liquid contact case 13.
