  • Patent number: 10289463
    Abstract: A scripting service may provide a scripting platform to users of the scripting service. The users may cause execution of various scripts and/or modify or generate new scripts associated with the scripting service. Execution of the various scripts may cause the scripting service to transmit application programming interface (API) calls to other services. The API calls may cause the other service to return data to the scripting service. The scripting service may then serialize the returned data and provide the serialized data to a particular user.

  • Patent number: 9445615
    Abstract: A fresh potato preservative and method of using the preservative for fresh cut potatoes that significantly extend the shelf life of fresh cut potatoes are provided. The fresh potato preservative preserves the texture, flavor, appearance, and color of the fresh potatoes, particularly exposed surfaces of the fresh potatoes that have been cut, in particular by reducing oxidation of the exposed cut surfaces of the potatoes. The preservative includes the ingredients of sodium chloride, citric acid, ascorbic acid, calcium chloride, sodium acid pyrophosphate, potassium sorbate and a protein-based composition.

  • Patent number: 7264208
    Abstract: An apparatus for controlling operating features of a model train includes a plurality of selection devices, each of which corresponds to a respective operating feature of the train. The apparatus also includes a controller connected to the selection devices of the apparatus. The controller is operative to generate control signals such as digital messages or DC offset signals corresponding to the selection devices. The apparatus further includes a plurality of switches to control the form the control signals take, and a transmitter connected to the controller. The transmitter is operative to send the digital or DC offset messages that are generated by the controller to a receiver located on the train in order to carry out the desired functions. This invention provides for at least a single button output of complex messages.

  • Patent number: 6180145
    Abstract: A process for preparing potatoes improves the shelf life of cooked potatoes and improves the appearance, taste, and texture of the potatoes. The potatoes first are washed. They are next perforated and then coated with an edible oil. The potatoes are cooked by heating the core to between about 195 and 200° F. and holding for about 15 minutes. The cooked potatoes are soaked in a solution to rehydrate the potato cells. The rehydrated potato has an extended shelf life with improved appearance, taste, and texture.

  • Patent number: 3988509
    Abstract: Continuous process for the production of reduced melt index, low gel content ethylene copolymers comprising the in-line addition of a solution of a free radical initiator into the polymer stream under turbulent conditions after most but not all of the unreacted monomers have been removed. The reduced melt index, low gel content ethylene copolymers prepared by the above process are particularly useful in coating compositions for paper, paperboard or corrugated board.
