  • Publication number: 20210014798
    Abstract: A method for reporting power headroom is disclosed. Power headroom may be reported across all carriers (wideband), for a specific carrier, or for a carrier group. The formula used to calculate the power headroom depends on whether the carrier (or a carrier in the carrier group) has a valid uplink grant. If the carrier or carrier group does not have a valid uplink grant, the power headroom may be calculated based on a reference grant. The power headroom is calculated by a wireless transmit/receive unit and is reported to an eNodeB.

  • Publication number: 20210013550
    Abstract: A novel wound electrode assembly for a lithium oxyhalide electrochemical cell is described. The electrode assembly comprises an elongate cathode of an electrochemically non-active but electrically conductive carbonaceous material disposed between an inner elongate portion and an outer elongate portion of a unitary lithium anode. That way, lithium faces the entire length of the opposed major sides of the cathode. This inner anode portion/cathode/outer anode portion configuration is rolled into a wound-shaped electrode assembly that is housed inside a cylindrically-shaped casing. A cylindrically-shaped sheet-type spring centered in the electrode assembly presses outwardly to limit axial movement of the electrode assembly. In one embodiment, all the non-active components, except for the cathode current collector which is nickel, are made of stainless-steel. This provides the cell with a low magnetic signature without adversely affecting the cell's high-rate capability.

  • Publication number: 20210000939
    Abstract: The present invention provides for modified Flavivirus such as a modified Zika virus. The modification according to various aspects of the invention results in reduced viral proteins compared to a parent virus, wherein the reduction in expression is the result of recoding one or more regions of the virus. For example, the prM, or envelope (E) region, or the nonstructural protein 3 (NS3) region or both the E and NS3 regions can be recoded. In various embodiments one or more regions are recoded by reducing the codon pair bias or codon usage bias of the protein-encoding sequence. These modified Flavivirus are used as vaccine compositions to provide a protective immune response.

  • Patent number: 10884475
    Abstract: A portable electronic device determines a battery available power for the device's battery and manages device power usage based upon the battery available power. The device includes a battery and a controller. The controller is configured to receive a first voltage value for the battery at a first time, a first current value for the battery, a second voltage value for the battery at a second time, and a second current value for the battery. It is determined that a time difference between the first time and the second time exceeds a predetermined time threshold. An estimated resistance of the battery is determined based at least on a first difference between the first current value and the second current value and a second difference between the first voltage value and the second voltage value. Real-time power usage of the device is controlled based on the estimated resistance of the battery.

  • Patent number: 10881353
    Abstract: A method includes generating a three-dimensional (3D) surface map associated with a patient from a patient sensor, generating a 3D patient space from the 3D surface map associated with the patient, determining a current pose associated with the patient based on the 3D surface map associated with the patient, comparing the current pose with a desired pose associated with the patient with respect to an imaging system, determining a recommended movement based on the comparison between the current pose and the desired pose, and providing an indication of the recommended movement. The desired pose facilitates imaging of an anatomical feature of the patient by the imaging system and the recommended movement may reposition the patient in the desired pose.

  • Publication number: 20200405649
    Abstract: Compositions of the present disclosure include a first dCas9-FokI-sgRNA complex and a second dCas9-FokI-sgRNA complex. The first sgRNA is configured to target a first side of a genomic fusion site and the second sgRNA is configured to target a second side of the genomic fusion site. The first and second complexes only cut DNA upon dimerization. Thus, upon binding of both first dCas9-FokI-sgRNA complex and second dCas9-FokI-sgRNA complex, the dimer is produced and DNA cleavage proceeds at the genomic fusion site. The dCas9-FokI-sgRNA complexes are loaded on a folded-DNA shell for transport across the cellular membrane. The shell has a viral-mimic structure that maximizes cell entry, is non-cytotoxic, has low-to-nonimmunogenicity, and provides excellent capacity to enclose and protect the complexes. These systems exhibit both cellular (via the shell) and molecular (via the complexes) specificity, significantly reducing off-target activity and the associated harmful side-effects.

  • Publication number: 20200412724
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to systems and methods for providing improved tools (e.g., user interfaces) that can be used for managing access permissions to cloud or other network resources. In general, the systems and methods include providing a user interface that can function in at least two modes which together can provide an improved user experience for intuitively and effectively developing code. As an example, the two interface modes can include a builder mode in which the user interface includes one or more interactive elements that enable a user to modularly build a set of computer-readable code that controls access permissions to one or more computing resources and an editor mode in which the user interface allows the user to directly edit the set of computer-readable code.

  • Publication number: 20200409945
    Abstract: Entity resolution techniques for matching entity records from different data sources are provided. In one technique, an entity record from a source database is identified along with multiple data items included therein. Each data item corresponds to an attribute of multiple source attributes. For one of the data items that corresponds to a first source attribute, multiple target attributes are identified. A first query is generated that includes the data items and associates the data item with each of the multiple target attributes. A second query that is different than the first query is also generated. Two searches are performed of a target database: one based on the first query and the other based on the second query. A scoring model generates multiple scores, one for each search result. It is determined whether the entity record matches an entity record in the target database based on the set of scores.

  • Patent number: 10878448
    Abstract: The invention uses a PID controller engine to provide a desired distribution of targeted ad placements, including controlling campaign pace in realtime to precisely spend a campaign budget over a prescribed runtime, while producing optimum results in a cost efficient manner based on desired targeting parameters. Those parameters include one or more probabilities that a viewer associated with an ad impression opportunity: belongs to one or more targeted demographic categories; will convert with respect to a product or service being offered; has an intention to buy the product or service; or exhibits one or more defined behaviors. Probabilities are determined by a truth-based machine-learning modelling engine. Upon receiving an ad slot opportunity package, a DSP makes a bid decision and determines a bid price, and then sends a bid response to the supply-side partner, all within 200 mS of receiving the ad slot opportunity or the bid will be ignored.
