  • Publication number: 20200094811
    Abstract: Embodiments of the subject matter disclosed herein relate to controlling engine operating points and power for full throttle command in an off-highway vehicle, such as a diesel electric haul truck, to increase fuel efficiency. In one example, a system includes an engine and a controller. The controller is configured to determine a target engine horsepower and associated target engine speed, command the engine to operate at a first engine speed above the target engine speed, adjust a load placed on the engine to reach the target engine speed, and command the engine to operate at a second engine speed to reach the target engine horsepower.

  • Publication number: 20200089638
    Abstract: A network connection apparatus and a method of connecting to a network using the apparatus. The apparatus includes a housing having a body and a cap. The body has a hole located at one end and a USB port protrudes therethrough. There is a light attached to the body. The light is configured to illuminate when the apparatus connects to a network. The apparatus contains a logic on a memory located within the housing. The logic contains rules to allow the apparatus to search for various networks. The apparatus primarily searches for mobile networks. Once a network is located the apparatus determines if a connection can be made. The apparatus will then connect to a network.

  • Publication number: 20200082331
    Abstract: A computer system monitors network sites to provide expedited delivery services. Operation of a network site is monitored to determine that an item is being obtained from the network site. The network site is scraped to determine that the item is available at a physical location associated with the network site. A courier service is identified to transport the item from the physical location to the delivery location. Delivery of the item is enabled by the courier service to the delivery location. Embodiments of the present invention further include a method and program product for monitoring network sites to provide expedited delivery services in substantially the same manner described above.

  • Patent number: 10582920
    Abstract: Examples of a suture anchor (100) having a non-expandable body (105) and expendable cap (110) are described herein. In response to an axial insertion force that brings the non-expandable body and expendable cap together inside a bone hole, the expendable cap expands radially. This creates a radial force of expansion that advantageously augments an interference fit between the suture anchor and bone hole, which leads to higher fixation strength. Other examples include retention features that inhibit the expendable cap from returning back into its unexpanded state. This advantageously maintains the radial force of expansion against the surrounding pressure of the walls of the bone hole pressing back on the suture.

  • Patent number: 10575304
    Abstract: In some examples, a first network node of a first network sends, in response to a request from a user equipment (UE) served by a second network, a transmission configuration to a second network node of the second network, the transmission configuration relating to a configuration used for a direct wireless transmission between the UE and a wireless device. The first network node sends scheduling information granting a resource for use by the UE in the direct wireless transmission.

  • Patent number: 10533045
    Abstract: Processes for producing and purifying recombinant proteins are disclosed. In particular, the present disclosure provides processes of producing and purifying multi-subunit proteins expressed in yeast or filamentous fungal cells. The production and/or purification of such proteins are monitored for impurities, preferably using lectin binding assays, such that one or more process parameters may be adjusted to maximize the amount of desired recombinant protein and minimize the amount of glycosylated impurities. The processes can also be monitored for other undesired product-associated impurities, such as aggregates and nucleic acids. In exemplary embodiments, the recombinant proteins are multi-subunit proteins, such as antibodies, the host cell is a yeast, such as Pichia pastoris, and the glycosylated impurity is a glycovariant of the desired recombinant polypeptide, such as an N-linked and/or O-linked glycovariant.
