  • Publication number: 20210267743
    Abstract: Soft tissue grafts, packaged soft tissue grafts, and methods of making and using soft tissue grafts are disclosed. One soft tissue graft includes processed tissue material having first and second opposed surfaces. The first and second opposed surfaces are bounded by first and second edges. The first edge has a concave shape that curves toward the second edge. The second edge has a convex shape that curves away from the first edge. The first surface comprises a plurality of apertures. At least one of the apertures is formed from a multi-directional separation in the first surface. One method of making a soft tissue graft includes positioning a cutting die on a surface of tissue material, pressing the cutting die into the tissue material to cut the tissue material, and processing the cut tissue material to create processed tissue material.

  • Publication number: 20210216852
    Abstract: Computer-implemented methods, systems, and software of detecting leaks, for example, in a pipeline that conveys a liquid or gas. Embodiments include inputting into a computer system a first set of data acquired (e.g., from the pipeline) during (e.g., normal) operation (e.g., of the pipeline), acquiring a second set of data (e.g., from the pipeline) while simulating leaks (e.g., from the pipeline) by releasing quantities of the liquid or gas (e.g., from the pipeline) from multiple locations (e.g., along the pipeline), inputting into the computer system the second set of data, and training the computer system to detect the leaks (e.g., from the pipeline) including communicating to the computer system that no leaks existed while the first set of data was acquired and communicating to the computer system that leaks existed while the second set of data was acquired.

  • Patent number: 10979413
    Abstract: An MR code is generated within a browser on a client device and is read by a mobile application on a mobile device. A communication channel is then established through a web-based service, between the browser and the mobile application on the mobile device. The mobile application generates a user interface display on the mobile device that allows user selection of content. The mobile application sends a link to that content to the browser, which accesses and renders the content on the client device. User input commands to control the rendered content are also received at the mobile device and sent to the browser through the communication channel.

  • Publication number: 20210062278
    Abstract: Preferred embodiments of the present invention comprise the optional application of concentrations of an aqueous permanganate solution, such as an approximately 0.01% to approximately 50% liquid permanganate solution and preferably comprising approximately 20% sodium permanganate dosed at approximately 1 ppm to approximately 100 ppm to harvested sugar crops, such as sugarcane, sugar beets, and sweet sorghum, at one or more of the sugar processing steps for the crops. The steps where the liquid sodium permanganate may optionally be applied include at a sugar crop cutting step, a sugar crop conveying step, a sugar juice extraction step, a sugar juice clarifying step, and a clarifier muds filtration step.

  • Publication number: 20210026880
    Abstract: A method at a client device includes displaying media library information corresponding to a set of media items. The media items include one or more local media items, the one or more local media items including media items stored at the client device, and one or more remote media items, the one or more remote media items including media items stored at a remote system and not at the client device. The method also includes displaying, concurrently with displaying the media library information, affordances identifying the remote media items; detecting user interaction with an affordance identifying a respective remote media item; and in response to detecting the user interaction, initiating a process for downloading a copy of the respective remote media item to the client device for storage at the client device.

  • Publication number: 20200382872
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to audio synchronization. An example method includes, at a first device with a communication device: performing an audio timing synchronization process that includes: transmitting, via the communication device, to a second device, a request for the second device to participate in the audio timing synchronization process; subsequent to transmitting the request to the second device, causing an output of an audio tone; subsequent to causing the output of the audio tone, receiving data from the second device based on the audio tone; and adjusting an audio timing synchronization setting of a third device based at least in part on the data received from the second device.

  • Publication number: 20190317970
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for searching a database storing unassembled content items. The method may include actions of receiving a query for a content item to present in the application, identifying an unassembled content item that is associated with (i) a program logic type and (ii) program logic modification tags, determining whether the client device requires an updated copy of a program logic item that includes instructions for rendering an assembled version of the unassembled content item, and transmitting, to an application program interface, data that includes (i) the unassembled content item and (ii) the modified program logic that cause the client device to render an assembled version of the content item at the client device in a programming language of the application using the program logic.

  • Patent number: 10390125
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided for automatically controlling the operation of a media device based upon whether a portable presentation device coupled to the media device is currently being worn by a user. A portable presentation device may be any device that is meant to be worn by a user that is capable of presenting media content to the user (e.g. earphones, headphones, goggles or faceplates with video/audio capability, etc.). With this mechanism, a user can affect the operation of the media device by simply putting on or taking off the portable presentation device. The user does not need to manually manipulate the controls of the media device. By automatically controlling the operation of the media device in this manner, use of the media device and the portable presentation device as a unit is made much simpler and more convenient.
