  • Patent number: 10449975
    Abstract: A railcar system that includes a railcar with a discharge opening and a longitudinal gate positioned adjacent to the discharge opening. The system further includes a driving system connected to the longitudinal gate that is configured to move the longitudinal gate between a closed position and an open position. The system further includes a controller connected to the driving system that causes the driving system to position the longitudinal gate in the closed position, position the longitudinal gate in the open position, and position the longitudinal gate to remain an at least partially open position. The longitudinal gate is less than fully open when the longitudinal gate is in the at least partially open position.

  • Patent number: 10296580
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described that relate to processing content, such as web pages, to be rendered and displayed on client computing devices. In one embodiment, a content parsing system may retrieve a content item on behalf of a client computing device, and parse markup language within the content item to generate a binary representation of objects within the content item. The content parsing system may then serialize the binary representation, and transmit the binary representation to the client computing device. The client computing device can then utilize the binary representation to output the content item, without parsing at least a portion of the content item.

  • Publication number: 20190080114
    Abstract: A system and method for selectively securing data from unauthorized access on a client device storing a plurality of data types with reference to an authorization level indicated in a command. A command is received at a client device comprising an authorization level indicator. Based on at least one predefined rule, which may be implemented in an IT policy stored at the client device, each of the plurality of data types to be secured is determined, and then the data corresponding to those types is secured. The data may be secured by encrypting and/or deleting the data at the client device. The predefined rules associated with each authorization level may be configured by a user or administrator having an authorization level that exceeds the associated authorization level.

  • Publication number: 20190008668
    Abstract: A stent delivery system can include a core member, an introducer sheath, and a microcatheter. The core member can have a distal segment. The stent engagement member can have a generally tubular body positioned about the core member distal segment and can be rotatably coupled to the core member. The engagement member can include an inner layer that has a first durometer and an outer layer that has a second durometer less than the first durometer. The stent can extend along the core member distal segment such that an inner surface of the stent is engaged by the engagement member outer layer for facilitating rotation of the stent relative to the core member.

    Abstract: Devices and methods for transforming a covered retrieval device from a deployed position to a delivery position for re-use are disclose herein. A retractor device may include, for example, a tubular structure defining a channel and configured to slidably receive a retrieval device. A method for transforming a retrieval device may include, for example, (a) positioning a retrieval device in a deployed position within a channel of a retractor device, (b) securing a part of the cover against a surface of the retractor, and (c) while securing the cover, advancing the retrieval device distally through the tubular structure to expose a capture structure of the retrieval device.

  • Patent number: 10116450
    Abstract: In a general aspect, a Merkel signature scheme (MSS) uses subtree data. In some aspects, subtree data is loaded from a non-volatile memory into a volatile memory. The subtree data represents one or more nodes of a subtree of a cryptographic hash tree and a first authentication path portion that includes nodes outside the subtree. The subtree includes a subtree root node at a level below a root node of the cryptographic hash tree and lowest-level nodes of the cryptographic hash tree, which are based on respective verification keys for a one-time signature (OTS) scheme. An OTS is generated using a first signing key associated with a first verification key, which is associated with a lowest-level node in the subtree. The OTS, the first verification key, the first authentication path portion, and a second authentication path portion comprising one or more nodes of the subtree are sent to a recipient.
