  • Patent number: 10652189
    Abstract: A data processing system is configured to perform a computer implemented method for facilitation of efficient processing of electronic messages via a network from message sources. The method includes receiving an electronic message including actionable object data and textual object data from a message source device. The actionable object data includes parameters actionable by at least one data processing transaction device to perform data processing transactions external to the network device and the textual object data including descriptors of the parameters actionable by the at least one data processing transaction device. The textual object data is operable by devices incompatible with the actionable object data. The method includes calculating an execution command for the data processing transaction in response to the actionable object data and based on at least the parameters of the actionable object data.

  • Patent number: 10631028
    Abstract: The systems and methods are directed towards delivery of third party content onto a user device having a first party portal. The first party portal service facilitates the user viewing of third party content on the user device. In particular, the first party portal service retrieves third party content (e.g., video content streams) from third party content providers and provides the third party content in a format (i.e. channels) that allows users to easily view different types of content. Furthermore, the first party portal service facilitates the user in viewing the third party content alongside other existing channels available to cable television and streaming media/video on demand content.

  • Patent number: 10294939
    Abstract: Parts of a pump head of a scroll pump facilitate an assembly process in which the stationary and orbiting scroll blades of the pump are angularly aligned or synchronized with one another. A metallic bellows of the pump head provides a primary means of synchronizing the stationary and orbiting scroll blades. The assembly process may be carried out using a fixture configured to be mountable to an assemblage including the bellows and the orbiting plate scroll. The fixture has a reference feature, and the orbiting plate scroll or the frame has another reference feature that can be aligned with the reference feature of the fixture, in the circumferential direction of the bellows, during the course of the assembly process.
