  • Publication number: 20100270772
    Abstract: This invention concerns a recreational vehicle comprising a body having a front wheel and a rear wheel mounted thereto by a mounting system that allows relative movement between an axis of the rear wheel and an axis of the front wheel. Biasing means is provided for urging the axes of the front and rear wheels towards each other. A locking system locks at least one of the front and rear wheels against rotation in one direction whilst allowing rotation of that wheel in the other direction. The invention also concerns a recreational vehicle comprising a body having at least one bouncing element mounted thereto, the bouncing element having sufficient resilience to allow a user to bounce the recreational vehicle and wherein the bouncing element is mounted to the body by a mounting system, which defines an axis of rotation for the bouncing element.

  • Publication number: 20090263666
    Abstract: A process of dry powder coating a thermo-curing resin onto a heat sensitive or a thermally insensitive substrate includes depositing a layer of dry uncured thermo-curing powder on the substrate. The coated substrate is passed through a curing station wherein the layer of thermosetting dry powder is irradiated with infrared radiation until the layer of thermosetting dry powder is cured. The infrared radiation is generated from ceramic glass elements. Also disclosed is a powder coated article, including a heat sensitive substrate coated directly with a coating of a thermosetting thermo-curing powder.

  • Publication number: 20080245947
    Abstract: A mat having a resiliently deformable mat portion and a securing element provided thereon for securing an item attached thereto against movement and relative to the mat portion is provided. The mat is arranged to grip a support surface on which the mat portion is laid, in use, by formation of at least a partial vacuum between the mat portion and the support surface upon deformation of the mat portion. The mat comprises a projection arranged to urge the item away from the mat when held by the mat, thereby to create a deformation in the mat portion.

  • Publication number: 20080210655
    Abstract: According to a first embodiment, a nipple for a feeding bottle or a soother comprises a base portion, a teat portion, an areola portion and a flex region allowing flexing of the teat portion towards and away from the areola portion. According to a second embodiment, a nipple for a feeding bottle or soother is provided with a helical flow formation on the inner face of the teat, which allows continuous flow of liquid even when the teat is collapsed via the helical flow path which allows extension at the teat, in particular rotational or torsional extension.

  • Patent number: 7413557
    Abstract: A breast pump comprises a body member (2) including a breast engaging portion (4) shaped to engage a region of a user's breast, a container (32) attached to the body member (2), valve means (28) between the body member (2) and the container (32), and, within the body member (2), a sleeve (12) sealing the interior of the body member (2) from the atmosphere, the sleeve (12) being selectively movable from a rest condition to a displaced condition by actuating means (14) operatively connected to the sleeve (12), movement of the sleeve (12) from the rest condition to the displaced condition creating an increasing volume of reduced pressure within the body member (2) whereby firstly the valve means (28) is closed to prevent evacuation of the container (32), and whereby milk is expressed by the user into the body member (2), and return movement of the sleeve (12) from the displaced condition to the extended condition releasing the reduced pressure allowing the valve to open, the expressed milk flowing through the va

  • Publication number: 20070282674
    Abstract: Processes (200, 400) for reducing fraud risk in credit transactions, particularly those involving airline ticket purchases, includes collecting the following additional transaction variables and their use in real-time authorization decisions: credit card holder name, reservation code, passenger name, origin city, destination city, travel date, routing description, class of service, e-ticket indicator, number of passengers traveling and carrier code. The additional transaction variables received during a transaction involving the purchase of airline tickets are passed, in addition to the transaction variables traditionally included in a real-time authorizations request, to a fraud risk evaluation model maintained by a financial institution (106) or other entity responsible for authorizing a payment for the transaction.

  • Publication number: 20070192249
    Abstract: The present invention provides systems, methods and computer program products for authorizing transactions based on, at least in part on, enhanced authorization data. In one embodiment, enhanced authorization data is received in a request for authorization to accept a transaction instrument as payment. Examples of enhanced authorization data include an automatic number identification, an information identifier, an email address, a contact telephone number, a ship-to-name, ship-to-address, an Internet Protocol address, and a seller identification. A risk analysis is performed based, at least in part, on the enhanced authorization data to determine the risk of the request being associated with a fraudulent purchase. The risk may be calculated by comparing the enhanced authorization data with information stored about the transaction instrument or with historical transaction information.

  • Publication number: 20070181671
    Abstract: The present invention provides systems, methods and computer program products for updating a reference magnetic signature of a magstripe card. In one embodiment, magnetic signatures from a magstripe card, each previously captured from a terminal during a transaction are retrieved from a database. The magnetic signatures are examined to identify if the magnetic properties of the magstripe card have changed. If a change is detected, a new reference magnetic signature is selected and/or created based on the magnetic signatures examined to identify the change and assigned to the magstripe card.

  • Publication number: 20070181670
    Abstract: The present invention provides systems, methods and computer program products for point of sale (POS) based capture of reference magnetic signatures. In one embodiment, a magnetic signature included in a request to authorize a transaction associated with a magstripe card is retrieved from a database. If the transaction is determined to be non-fraudulent, the magnetic signature is used to provide a reference magnetic signature for the magstripe card. A transaction is determined to be non-fraudulent, for example, if the transaction is not reported as being fraudulent for a designated period of time such as for three to four months. In another example, a transaction is determined to be non-fraudulent if an indication or a confirmation is received from a card member of the magstripe card that the transaction was valid.

  • Publication number: 20070157581
    Abstract: A waste storage device includes a container (21) in which a cassette (1) is mounted. Tubing (2) is pulled through the centre of the cassette (1) to store packages (35) separated by twists. The cassette (1) is rotated relative to the container (21) to provide the twists between packages (35) by virtue of a rotatable disk (100) and user grip portion (102). The package is gripped against rotation by a gripper diaphragm (120) and is guided towards a wall of the container by a guide diaphragm (122) to prevent untwisting between packages.
