  • Patent number: 10999354
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed herein for opening files via local applications. A first application on a local device receives a request to open a document specified by a user via a user interface associated with the first application, the document having a document identifier and associated with a first file stored on a server. The first application communicates the request to open the document associated with the first file to a second application on the local device, and receives, from the second application, information identifying one of the plurality of document processing applications that are on the local device and are capable of opening a second file that is stored on the local device and has the same document identifier as the document specified by the user, the second file being a local copy of the first file.

  • Patent number: 10920711
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for a water jacket diverter. In one example, the water jacket diverter may be formed by injection molding and includes features such as cut-outs, an inlet ledge, a continuous upper rail, and one or more fins. The water jacket diverter may increase coolant flow in an upper portion of the water jacket, thereby increasing a cooling efficiency at an upper region of a cylinder block.

  • Patent number: 10592838
    Abstract: A risk simulation and assessment tool may enable a user to select scenarios and risk factors associated with a selected scenario. The risk factors may be defined by risk factor characteristics along with links that define connectivity or interconnectedness to other risk factors. The risk factor characteristics may also include impact, velocity, and likelihood. The tool may provide for a simplified way to create a computerized network map that includes the nodes of risk factors associated with each of the scenarios. The computerized network map may be displayed and dynamic adjustment may be available to the user. A simulation using the computerized network map may also be executed as defined by the risk factor characteristics, thereby enabling a user to determine how operations of an organization may be impacted by changing events that may occur in regions in which physical operations of an organization of the user exist.

  • Patent number: 10339484
    Abstract: A system and process for forecasting third party disruption that uses a complex computerized network map as part of a risk model may be used to analyze risk for third parties. A number of risk factors or nodes of the map may include a wide range of risks (e.g., corruption) that have an impact on third parties in a geographic region. A baseline risk level may be established by scoring underlying risk measures for respective geographic regions. By executing the risk model using dynamic signal processing in a near real-time manner and considering impact, velocity, likelihood, and interconnectedness of risk factors and the diffusion of risk across a network, potential third party disruption and/or vulnerability can be forecasted.

  • Publication number: 20180149366
    Abstract: A wood pellet combustion container for a fireplace. The wood pellet combustion container comprises a housing having a base and a sidewall forming an interior volume having an open upper end. The housing further includes a platform that is slidably disposed within the sidewall at the open upper end such that it can be removed from the housing. The platform includes a plurality of apertures and a handle disposed thereon, wherein the platform receives burning wood pellets. The sidewall further includes a drawer slidably mounted below the platform, wherein the drawer receives wood pellet ashes that fall through the plurality of apertures. The wood pellet combustion container is placed within a fireplace, such that heat is generated from burning wood pellets placed on the platform.

  • Publication number: 20140155914
    Abstract: A suture passer device is provided including a jaw configuration that grasps targeted tissue such as tendons or muscles in a similar manner as existing suture passer devices; however, the device introduces the needle and the attached suture along the axis of the shaft of the device. After grasping the targeted tissue, the needle is deployed by manipulating the handle of the device similar to conventional suture passers however, the needle is deployed in between the opposing jaws and the needle is advanced into tissue along the axis of the shaft as opposed to perpendicular to the shaft as in prior art devices. The invention further includes methods of deploying sutures and anchors. The invention also includes embodiments of jaw designs, and various embodiments of suture passing needles, sutures constructions, and anchor designs. Therefore, the invention also comprises the device in combination with the needles, sutures, and anchors, as well as the needles, sutures, and anchors in separate sub combinations.

  • Patent number: 8150161
    Abstract: Embodiments of a computer system, a method, and a computer-program product (e.g., software) for use with the computer system are described. These embodiments may be used to identify and correct errors in financial information that was extracted using character-recognition software, such as optical character recognition software and/or intelligent character recognition software. In particular, potential errors may be identified by comparing the financial information for a current financial transaction of a user with expected financial information from one or more previous financial transactions of the user. Error metrics for these potential errors may be determined and used to correct at least some of the potential errors. For example, values of the Levenshtein edit distance may be determined based on the comparison, and one or more potential errors associated with one or more minimum values of the Levenshtein edit distance may be corrected.

  • Publication number: 20100191247
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods are provided for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair incorporating a transhumeral bone tunnel. The apparatus comprises a number of components that can also be considered a repair system to include a drill guide, a marking hook, and a drill with a removable tip that serves as a bone anchor. In another aspect, the invention provides a suture especially adapted for securing both soft tissue and bone anchors that reduces forces transmitted to the anchors by secondary anchoring of the suture within the bone tunnel based on the geometry of the anchor. In additional aspects of the invention, the components of the drill guide assembly comprise a cannulated marking hook and a drill guide with multiple bores.

  • Publication number: 20100094171
    Abstract: The blood collection set includes an IV needle assembly, a length of flexible plastic tubing extending from the IV needle assembly and a non-patient needle assembly. The set is formed with a venting mechanism that permits an outflow of air, while blocking an outflow of blood or other fluids. Thus, the venting mechanism enables air that had existed in interior portions of the blood collection set to be vented allowing for greater flash visualization on venous entry, and avoids the need to employ a discard tube.
