  • Publication number: 20210127882
    Abstract: The system for parcel transport and tracking that operates responsive to data bearing records includes a plurality of geographically spaced repositories. The exemplary repositories each include an interior area comprised of a plurality of enclosed compartment spaces. Access to each of the enclosed compartment spaces is controlled by a respective door which is in operative connection with a respective lock. Repositories are constructed to provide a secure enclosure for the parcels housed therein when exposed to a range of environmental and operating conditions. Central control circuitry in operative connection with the repositories is operative to control access to the compartment spaces and cause the compartments to be selectively accessible so that selected parcels may be placed therein or removed therefrom.

  • Patent number: 10221115
    Abstract: A method of diverting municipal solid waste (MSW) from a landfill that includes receiving, at a MSW processing system, a quantity of MSW, gasifying the quantity of MSW in a gasification unit to yield a syngas stream and biochar stream, converting at least a portion of the syngas to mixed alcohols in an alcohol synthesis unit, separating the mixed alcohols into one or more alcohol products, and determining a carbon offset for diverting the MSW from the landfill to the MSW processing system.

  • Publication number: 20140331061
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems, computer-readable mediums, and methods for receiving an input/output operation regarding data associated with a distributed storage system that includes a plurality of storage devices. A key identifier associated with the I/O operation is determined. The key identifier identifies a key that has been divided into a number of key pieces. Two or more storage devices of the plurality of storage devices that contain one or more of the key pieces are determined and at least a threshold number of key pieces are requested from the two or more storage devices. The minimum number of key pieces needed to reconstruct the key is the threshold number. The key is reconstructed from the requested key pieces. A cryptographic function is performed on data associated with the I/O operation using the reconstructed key and the I/O operation is completed based upon the performed cryptographic function.

  • Publication number: 20120111554
    Abstract: An automated indoor water display system has a panel. A pump is operable to pump water from a reservoir to the panel in a manner that causes water to flow over at least a portion of the panel. The panel is held in a housing adapted to limit escape of moisture from the housing. The system can include a humidity control system operable to increase and/or decrease humidity in response to a humidity sensor. The system can include an ultraviolet sanitization system that limits microbial growth in the system. The system can also include a cleaning system that automatically exchanges water in the system with fresh water while the pump operates continuously during the exchange. The system can also include a fan positioned to direct airflow from the room containing the display unit toward the water flowing over the body to enhance removal of airborne contaminants from the air.

  • Publication number: 20110310528
    Abstract: A capacitor, and methods of its manufacture, having improved capacitance efficiency which results from increasing the effective area of an electrode surface are disclosed. An improved “three-dimensional” capacitor may be constructed with electrode layers having three-dimensional aspects at the point of interface with a dielectric such that portions of the electrode extend into the dielectric layer. Advantageously, embodiments of a three-dimensional capacitor drastically reduce the space footprint that is required in a circuit to accommodate the capacitor, when compared to current capacitor designs. Increased capacitance density may be realized without using high k (high constant) dielectric materials, additional “electrode-dielectric-electrode” arrangements in an ever increasing stack, or serially stringing together multiple capacitors.
