  • Patent number: 11118884
    Abstract: A dispenser for dispensing powder for firearm ammunition and associated methods. The dispenser can include a hopper, a conveyor, a scale, a dispenser controller, and a tangible storage medium storing instructions executable by the dispenser controller. The dispenser controller can execute a powder calibration sequence and/or a dispensing sequence. In the powder calibration sequence and/or the dispensing sequence, the dispenser controller desirably learns the dispense rate of the powder and uses the dispense rate to optimize dispensing of the powder and increase precision in dispensing a target mass of powder. The conveyor can comprise a conveyor tube having a conveyor tube axis oriented to extend at an upward angle with respect to horizontal.

  • Patent number: 11036725
    Abstract: A computer system receives a query and converts the query into one or more input data types each associated with a respective piece of input constraint data, and one or more output datatypes corresponding to desired data. A data path workflow scheme is created from the datatypes and a catalog of data path modules each of which has defined datatype of its input(s) and output(s) by building candidate data paths forward from the input and rearward from the output of the data path until data paths from all of the outputs connect with at least one of the data path inputs. The data path is then optimized and converted to an executable code data procedure and then run with the constraint data as the input to the procedure. The results can be displayed to a user display device by presentation modules based on the datatype of the output.

  • Publication number: 20210169780
    Abstract: Described herein are intracameral implants including at least one therapeutic agent for treatment of at least one ocular condition. The implants described herein are not anchored to the ocular tissue, but rather are held in place by currents and gravity present in the anterior chamber of an eye. The implants are preferably polymeric, biodegradable and provide sustained release of at least one therapeutic agent to both the trabecular meshwork and associated ocular tissue and the fluids within the anterior chamber of an eye.

  • Patent number: 11000740
    Abstract: The golf flagstick with ball retrieval attachment is designed to assist a player in removing a golf ball from a golf cup after the player has played the ball into the cup. The golf flagstick includes a flag mounted proximate a top end of the golf flagstick and a ball retrieval attachment mounted proximate a bottom end of the golf flagstick. The ball retrieval attachment includes a ball retrieval body mounted on the flagstick using a ball retrieval fastener and adjustment mechanism. The ball retrieval fastener and adjustment mechanism allows for height adjustable attachment of the ball retrieval body on the flagstick to compensate for different golf cup depths.

  • Patent number: 10957158
    Abstract: An artificial intelligence (AI) learning machine is integrated into a gaming system to adaptively learn to predict when and where excessive chronological clustering of winning hits is likely to occur for a progressive jackpot (e.g., a high frequency one) within the gaming system, to preemptively prepare for such occurrences by prefunding one or more smart-awards funds to cope with such excessive chronological clusterings of hits and to use the one or more smart-awards funds to pay off not-first-in-time winners with a same jackpot award amount as is paid to the true first-in-time winner of the jackpot if such runner up winners hit their respective win conditions within a predetermined smart-awards time span after the first-in-time winner hits. This can avoid or reduce feelings of unfairness by the not-first-in-time winners especially when the latter hit just a split second after the true first-in-time winner hits the jackpot.

  • Publication number: 20210010693
    Abstract: A building management system (BMS) for filtering a fluid within a building is shown. The system includes one or more sensors configured to measure one or more characteristics of a first fluid within an air duct of the BMS and measure one or more characteristics of a second fluid after the second fluid has been filtered. The system further includes a pollutant management system configured to receive data from the one or more sensors and control a filtration process. The filtration process selects a filter of a plurality of filters based on a level of the one or more characteristics of the first fluid and the one or more characteristics of the second fluid.

  • Publication number: 20200207850
    Abstract: The present invention relates to Tri-Specific Binding Molecules, which are multi-chain polypeptide molecules that possess three Binding Domains and are thus capable of mediating coordinated binding to three epitopes. The Binding Domains may be selected such that the Tri-Specific Binding Molecules are capable of binding to any three different epitopes. Such epitopes may be epitopes of the same antigen or epitopes of two or three different antigens. In a preferred embodiment, one of such epitopes will be capable of binding to CD3, the second of such epitopes will be capable of binding to CD8, and the third of such epitopes will be capable of binding to an epitope of a Disease-Associated Antigen. The invention also provides a novel ROR1-binding antibody, as well as derivatives thereof and uses for such compositions.

  • Patent number: 10616640
    Abstract: Various arrangements for providing bimodal digital video recording are presented. A plurality of over-the-air (OTA) television programs received via an antenna input port may be recorded to a local processor-readable storage medium. Record instructions may be transmitted to a cloud-based television programming service provider server system to remotely record and store scheduled streaming television programs to storage of the cloud-based television programming service provider server system. OTA television programs received via the antenna input port and recorded to the local processor-readable storage medium may be determined. Indications of television programs stored by the cloud-based television programming service provider server system may be received. Data may be output to a display device to present the bimodal DVR interface having a unified interface that simultaneously comprises indications of the recorded OTA television programs and indications of the scheduled streaming television programming.
