  • Patent number: 11118857
    Abstract: A spin-stabilizing assembly is usable with a cylindrical barrel having a longitudinal center axis, a vertical center axis, and a distal end. The assembly includes a gimbal piece, a spinner cage, and a spinner body. A first end of the gimbal piece engages an outer diameter surface of the barrel proximate the distal end. The spinner cage is configured to engage a second end of the gimbal piece, and to pivot with respect thereto about the vertical center axis. The spinner body is disposed radially within the spinner cage and defines multiple axial vanes. The vanes, in response to impingement on the axial vanes of exhaust gases discharged from the distal end of the barrel, rotate the spinner body about the longitudinal center axis. Rotation results in impedance along the vertical center axis which minimizes vertical displacement or motion of the distal end.

  • Publication number: 20210264512
    Abstract: Vehicle usage-based data, including telematics data, may be utilized to adjust one or more terms (e.g., a variable interest rate and/or variable principle amount) of a variable vehicle loan. Telematics data may include, for example, data generated via a vehicle data system and/or a mobile electronic device. The one or more terms may be additionally or alternatively be adjusted based upon transportation metrics associated with usage of the vehicle by a transportation network company (TNC) and/or TNC driver.

  • Publication number: 20180165688
    Abstract: A system and method that correlates a user identifier, associated with a computing device being used by a consumer, with a telephone number belonging to the consumer. The system maintains advertising impression data, describing online advertising impressions associated with user identifiers, and call data, describing telephone calls to a businesses and the telephone numbers from which the calls were received. Based on the maintained advertising impression and call data, the system generates correlations between telephone numbers and user identifiers for a consumer.

  • Patent number: 9202246
    Abstract: Various embodiments of a system and method for providing substitute item recommendations in order status messages are described. In various embodiments, a customer may submit an order for one or more items to a merchant. In various cases, the merchant may fulfill the order by preparing a shipment that includes the one or more ordered items and shipping that shipment to the customer. In some cases, at least one item of the order may be delayed or canceled for a variety of reasons. In various embodiments, the merchant may utilize an exception management component to generate an orders status message (for the customer) that specifies the item has been delayed or canceled. The merchant may also utilize the exception management component to generate the order status message such that the order status message also includes a recommendation of one or more substitute items that the customer may be interested in.
