  • Publication number: 20190242533
    Abstract: The controllable lumen output light bulb includes a plurality of LED elements within a larger element. A switch disposed on the neck provides for using one, two, and three elements by choice, with basic circuitry controlling which elements are utilized in providing a dim light, a medium lumen light, a high light luminescence choice, and a combination of lumen choices. As an example, the elements provide a 40-watt equivalent choice, a 60-watt equivalent choice, and a 100-watt equivalent choice. Offerings are not limited to these particular choices.

  • Patent number: 9604376
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are various embodiments and variations of a personal grooming device extender. In one embodiment, a personal grooming device extender comprises a telescoping handle having a proximal end and a distal end, and a top side and a bottom side; and an arm pivotably coupled with the distal end of the telescoping handle, the arm configured to adjust to a plurality of positions between a first position, extended linearly from the handle and a second position perpendicular with the distal end of the handle. A receiver may be releasably coupled onto the arm, the receiver comprising a moveable holding member configured to receive and hold a grooming tool. In some embodiments, the receiver may be interchangeable to accommodate a wider variety of grooming tools.

  • Patent number: 8445251
    Abstract: Disclosed are rationally-designed, non-naturally-occurring meganucleases in which a pair of enzyme subunits having specificity for different recognition sequence half-sites are joined into a single polypeptide to form a functional heterodimer with a non-palindromic recognition sequence. The invention also relates to methods of producing such meganucleases, and methods of producing recombinant nucleic acids and organisms using such meganucleases.
