  • Publication number: 20120101231
    Abstract: The present invention relates to various end use applications prepared from certain block copolymers. The block copolymers include one or more A or A? blocks or B blocks plus one or more terminal M blocks. Each A and A? is a block or segment comprising predominantly a polymerized alkenyl aromatic compound, each B is a block or segment comprising predominantly a polymerized conjugated alkadiene, and each M is a six membered anhydride ring and/or acid group. The anhydride rings are prepared by thermally decomposing adjacent units of (1-methyl-1-alkyl)alkyl acrylic esters such as t-butylmethylacrylate. A wide variety of polymers are disclosed having the stable anhydride rings in the polymer backbone. The invention relates specifically to various end uses prepared from the reaction product of such block copolymers with various reactive resins, reactive monomers and metal derivatives.

  • Publication number: 20120056400
    Abstract: A tricycle conversion assembly for a motorcycle comprising two bilaterally symmetrical stabilizers independently mounted to and suspended from a motorcycle frame by adjustable means of attachment. The stabilizers dispose auxiliary wheels essentially even with and parallel to the motorcycle rear wheel wherein the adjustable means of attachment suspend the stabilizers from the motorcycle without moving parts and provide for modifying the alignment of the stabilizers with the motorcycle and for modifying the reactivity of the stabilizers with variations in the ground surface. The assembly provides the opportunity to replace a stabilizer with a side car, and for attachment of an optional towing crossbar at the rear of the assembly.

  • Publication number: 20110138589
    Abstract: A clip assembly may safely secure sliding sashes of a window or door during transportation, and, in one embodiment, be comprised of a strap member and a pawl member. The strap member may be comprised of a bumper portion, and a strap portion extending therefrom, where the strap portion may have a plurality of teeth formed within the thickness of the strap. The pawl member may have a pair of sidewalls supported by a top wall and an intermediate wall. The top wall may have a protrusion which includes a plurality of pawl teeth formed to complement the strap teeth, and be located proximate to the intermediate wall. The strap may be introduced through the gap between the top rail of an upper sash and bottom rail of the second sash, to then be inserted into the pawl, and thereby be retained by the respective teeth to secure the sashes.

  • Patent number: 7664640
    Abstract: A signal processing system is disclosed which is implemented using Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) based Hidden Markov Model (HMM), or a GMM alone, parameters of which are constrained during its optimization procedure. Also disclosed is a constraint system applied to input vectors representing the input signal to the system. The invention is particularly, but not exclusively, related to speech recognition systems. The invention reduces the tendency, common in prior art systems, to get caught in local minima associated with highly anisotropic Gaussian components—which reduces the recognizer performance—by employing the constraint system as above whereby the anisotropy of such components are minimized. The invention also covers a method of processing a signal, and a speech recognizer trained according to the method.
