  • Patent number: 10796270
    Abstract: Various embodiments provide systems and methods for facilitating synchronized delivery of shipments/items scheduled to be delivered to multiple serviceable points located nearby one another. Various embodiments identify nearby serviceable points based on an identification of serviceable points being located along a common street segment. Accordingly, serviceable point data identifying corresponding street segment identifiers are stored for a plurality of serviceable points. Thereafter, shipping data for a first shipment to be delivered to a first serviceable point is received, and a determination is made whether a second shipment scheduled to be delivered to a second serviceable point is available for synchronized delivery with the first shipment. The determination comprises determining whether the street segment corresponding to the first serviceable point is the same as and/or is connected to the street segment corresponding to the second serviceable point.

  • Patent number: 10706384
    Abstract: Various embodiments provide systems and methods for facilitating synchronized delivery of shipments/items scheduled to be delivered to multiple serviceable points located nearby one another. Various embodiments identify nearby serviceable points based on an identification of serviceable points being located within a common geofenced area. Accordingly, a geofence is defined surrounding a geographical area comprising a plurality of serviceable points. The geofence is associated with a record for a serviceable point located within the geofenced area, wherein the record comprises a physical address and a geocode for the serviceable point. Thereafter, shipping data for a shipment to be delivered to the serviceable point is received, and is compared to a database of shipments to determine whether a second shipment is to be delivered to a second serviceable point located within the same geofenced area.

  • Patent number: 10659409
    Abstract: Systems, devices, media, and methods are presented for providing access to media content within a networked system. The systems and methods receive a notification indicating dispensing of an image capture device by a dispersal machine. In response to receiving the notification, the systems and methods generate a media distribution session associated with the identifier. Media instances or content are published to the media distribution session by associating the media distribution session and the identifier with the media instances or content. The systems and methods receive access requests for the media distribution session and, responsive to the access requests, transmit at least a portion of the media instances or content to a requesting device.

  • Publication number: 20200148935
    Abstract: The method includes a step of introducing into the reservoir, via a well, a mixture comprising a scale inhibitor, a first scale precursor and a second scale precursor. The first and second scale precursors can react together to form scale. The first scale precursor may be an ammonium salt. The method can further comprise a step of stopping the introduction into the reservoir of the mixture and shutting in the well for 2-24 hours, and a step of introducing into the reservoir a further mixture comprising a scale inhibitor, a first and second scale precursor which can react together to form scale. The steps of stopping and resuming the introduction of mixtures may be repeated at least once. The components of the mixtures may be provided as concentrated solutions and diluted in a stream of water prior to being introduced into the reservoir. The method provides an effective way of generating a barrier to fluid flow in a reservoir. The method may be a method of abandoning an entire well in a reservoir.

  • Publication number: 20200060359
    Abstract: A personal protection and ventilation system is provided. The system includes a gown having front and rear panels, a hood, and visor; a fan; an air tube; and a helmet. The fan is positioned between the wearer and a body-facing surface of the rear panel. The front panel and at least a portion of the hood are formed from a first material including a first spunbond layer, a spunbond-meltblown-spunbond laminate, and a liquid impervious elastic film disposed therebetween. The first material has an air volumetric flow rate of less than about 1 standard cubic feet per minute (scfm). The rear panel is formed from a second material including a nonwoven laminate having an air volumetric flow rate of about 20 scfm to about 80 scfm. Therefore, the fan is able to intake a sufficient amount of air from the environment through the rear panel to provide cooling/ventilation to the hood.

  • Patent number: 10544482
    Abstract: Process to recover copper from a process feed including one or more feed components containing a base metal sulphidic feed, iron, copper and arsenic. Process feed and aqueous quench solution are introduced to a pressure oxidative leaching step with a partial pressure of oxygen above 200 kPa to form free sulphuric acid, to solubilize copper and other metal in the feed as aqueous sulphate compounds and to precipitate arsenic as solid iron arsenic compounds. A treated slurry comprising a liquid phase containing sulphuric acid and copper sulphate, and solids containing the iron arsenic compounds is withdrawn and the liquid phase is separated from the solids. To lessen arsenic re-dissolution and to maintain stability of the solid iron arsenic compounds, one or more of temperature, free acid level and residence time of the treated slurry is controlled. Copper metal is recovered from the separated liquid phase.

  • Publication number: 20200007492
    Abstract: An electronic messaging system and method with reduced traceability by separation of display of media component of message content and header information. An electronic message having an identifier of a recipient and a message content including an image media component is received at a server from a sending user device at which a display for associating the media component with the electronic message is provided without displaying the identifier of a recipient with the media component such that a single screen capture of the identifier of a recipient and the media component is prevented. The electronic message including an identifier of a sending user is transmitted to a recipient user device at which a display presenting the media component is provided without displaying the identifier of a sending user such that a single screen capture of both the identifier of a sending user and the media component is prevented.
