  • Publication number: 20200383221
    Abstract: A quick disconnect system for an accessory electrically coupled to a component of an amusement attraction includes a multi-part electrical enclosure including a first side, a second side opposite the first side, a first opening on the first side, and a relief pass through. The multi-part electrical enclosure is configured to: have a first electrical cable coupled to the accessory pass into the multi-part electrical enclosure via the first opening and have a second electrical cable pass into the second side of the multi-part electrical enclosure to enable the first and second cables to be coupled together within the multi-part electrical enclosure. The relief pass through is configured to provide strain relief to both the first electrical cable and the second electrical cable and to prevent disconnection of the accessory from the multi-part electrical enclosure.

  • Patent number: 10852109
    Abstract: The invention describes a method of pre-forming cores for arrows that embody weights imbedded in or otherwise connected to the cores, wherein the added weights may be strategically positioned in a manner that assures perfect front to balance in the finished arrow regardless of the core material used or length of arrows being constructed. The invention assumes that the cores with embedded or otherwise connected weights will later be further surrounded by composite or other materials to complete the finished arrow shaft. The various composite wrapping and curing stages typically associated with making composite arrow shafts are outside the scope of this patent application. This application relates only to pre-forming arrow cores that will be used with a variety of later applied wrapping, curing, grinding, and polishing steps to be performed by others.

  • Publication number: 20200374297
    Abstract: An edge server receives a plurality of requests from a client network application for actions to be performed on a resource that is hosted at an origin server. The edge server determines request attributes of the requests and associates the request attributes with a session identifying the client network application. The edge server generates a confidence value for the client network application based at least on the determined request attributes of the plurality of requests and computed session metrics of the session. When the confidence value indicates that the client network application is malicious, the edge server performs one or more mitigation actions.

  • Patent number: 10846803
    Abstract: A social networking system permits users to store content presented by the social networking system and subsequently access the stored content associated with the users. A content item is stored in association with a user profile of a user that stored the content item and with one or more rules specifying criteria causing presentation of the stored content item to the user when satisfied. Additionally, a rule associated with a stored content item may specify a format in which the stored content item is presented when criteria associated with the rule are satisfied. When characteristics associated with a user satisfy criteria associated with a rule associated with a stored content item, the stored content item is included in a selection process determining content that is presented to the user.

  • Patent number: 10828455
    Abstract: This invention relates to a medical tube comprises an elongate conduit having a first opening, a second opening, a longitudinal axis, a lumen extending between the first opening and the second opening along the longitudinal axis, and a corrugated wall, formed from an extruded material, extending between the first opening and the second opening and surrounding the lumen. The wall is stiffer in a first length of the conduit adjacent the first opening than in a second length of the conduit adjacent the second opening. The variable stiffness of the tube wall can improve the thermal profile of the tube as well as improve drain-back of condensation into a humidifier providing humidified gas to the tube.

  • Patent number: 10815777
    Abstract: A method for detecting incremental oil production from an oil-bearing reservoir includes taking a baseline sample of the oil and analyzing the baseline sample of oil to establish a baseline compositional signature for the oxygen-containing organic compounds in the oil. In addition, the method includes commencing a low salinity waterflood by injecting a low salinity water into the reservoir from an injection well. Further, the method includes recovering oil from a production well. Still further, the method includes taking post-flood samples of the oil produced from the production well over time. The method also includes analyzing the post-flood samples of oil to establish post-flood compositional signatures for the oxygen-containing organic compounds in the oil. Moreover, the method includes identifying a difference between one or more of the post-flood compositional signatures and the baseline compositional signature that is characteristic of incremental oil released by the low salinity waterflood.

  • Patent number: 10798203
    Abstract: A method and computing device for delta compression techniques for reducing network resource transmission size are described. A first request for a network resource is received. The requested network resource is retrieved. A first response including the network resource is transmitted to the near end network optimizer. The retrieved network resource is stored as a first version of the network resource regardless of a directive that a cached version of the network resource is not to be used to respond to future HTTP requests for that network resource without successful revalidation with an origin server. A second request for the network resource is received. A most current version of the network resource is retrieved. A set of differences between the first version and the most current version of the network resource are determined. The set of differences are transmitted to the near end network optimizer.

  • Publication number: 20200308775
    Abstract: Soil form structure for supporting hardscape and corresponding vehicle, pedestrian traffic, and other loads while maintaining uncompacted or loosely compacted soil underneath. A number of cell structures may be coupled to each other, where each cell has a strong yet lightweight and open structure that can accept uncompacted soil, vegetation roots, utilities, and the like within at least approximately 85-90% of its volume, while also allowing hardscape to be poured or formed thereon. Thus, cell structures allow for hardscape to be integrally formed with the cell structures, without need for an underlying layer of highly compacted soil or other hardscape support.

  • Patent number: 10791099
    Abstract: A first server receives a set of cryptographic parameters from a second server. The set of cryptographic parameters is received from the second server as part of a secure session establishment between a client device and the second server. The first server accesses a private key that is not stored on the second server. The first server signs the set of cryptographic parameters using the private key. The first server transmits the signed set of cryptographic parameters to the second server. The first server receives, from the second server, a request to generate a premaster secret using a value generated by the second server that is included in the request and generates the premaster secret. The first server transmits the premaster secret to the second server for use in the secure session establishment between the client device and the second server.
