  • Publication number: 20080183566
    Abstract: A show including a series of episodes. Each one of the episodes includes a plot which varies with each one of the episodes and a plurality of characters who are affiliated with a service company. The service company is involved with a plurality of different commodities which are commercially available outside of the show. At least one of the characters has a role in some or all of the episodes. Each of the episodes includes at least one noncomplimentary act that is performed by at least one of the characters. The noncomplimentary act does not expressly compliment the commodity and is performable to produce a promotional effect for at least one of the commodities with respect to one or more viewers of the episode.

  • Patent number: 4795973
    Abstract: A self contained hot stick mounted radio transmitting module may be permanently mounted on or temporarily pushed against the power conductor of an electrical transmission line. The module is capable of measuring the potential difference between the conductor and ground. The module digitizes and transmits the value of the potential difference to a ground receiver. The module is donut shaped and opens like a pair of jaws. The contact with the power line is accomplished via a resilient conductive elastomer that covers the surfaces in contact with the power conductor. The potential difference between ground and the power conductor is measured with an operational amplifier in an integrating configuration to convert the leakage current from the module to ground into a proportional voltage from a low impedance source. The integrator outputs a voltage proportional to the current flowing into the equivalent capacitance formed by the outer surface of the module and ground.

  • Patent number: 4787387
    Abstract: An improved surgical instrument cartridge is described. The cartridge comprises a plurality of wound closure elements. Each element has a crown and two opposite side legs. The distal end of each leg of an element contacts the crown of the adjacent preceding element. Two opposite grooves (in the cartridge) contain at least each end of each crown and the proximal end of each leg. The cartridge is attached to a surgical instrument. To activate the plurality of closure elements, a spring acts only on the proximal element. The improvement comprises the distal ends of the legs of each element being in an essentially converging relationship. The plurality of elements are thus self-aligning in the grooves. The wound closure element can be a staple.

  • Patent number: 4728433
    Abstract: Hemodialysis ultrafiltration apparatus comprises a hemodialyzer, a supply line for supplying fresh dialysate to the hemodialyzer. A drain line is provided for removing spent dialysate from the hemodialyzer. The dialyzer is adapted to be connected to a patient so that the patient's blood may be supplied to and removed from the hemodialyzer. A weighing mechanism allows a fixed amount of fresh dialysate, by weight, to flow through the hemodialyzer. Spent dialysate emerging from the hemodialyzer is then weighed by the weighing device to determine the weight differential therebetween to monitor and control the amount and rate of ultrafiltrate removed from blood in the hemodialyzer.A method of hemodialytic ultrafiltration is carried out substantially in accordance with the above-described apparatus.
