  • Patent number: 11462077
    Abstract: An electronic gaming machine (EGM) may present first visual effects on a display system, including game play items, corresponding to one or more instances of a base game and determining instances of game play items that correspond to feature credits towards an automatic award of a feature comprising one or more bonus games. The EGM may present second visual effects corresponding to an accumulation of feature credits towards the automatic award of the feature, receive an indication of a player's initiation of an attempt to trigger an award of the feature, at a time during which less than a number of feature credits necessary for an automatic award of the feature has been accumulated, determine whether an award of the feature will be triggered and control the display system to present third visual effects corresponding to whether an award of the feature has been triggered.

  • Publication number: 20140221327
    Abstract: Known or suspected traumatic brain injuries may be treated therapeutically by administering a therapeutically effective dose of resibufogenin. A preferred method for determining if a patient has a traumatic brain injury includes obtaining a body specimen from the patient, determining the concentration of marinobufagenin in the body specimen, comparing the concentration of marinobufagenin to the concentration in such body specimens in normal patients, and if the marinobufagenin concentration is substantially above the concentration of a normal patient, concluding traumatic brain injury exists. In a preferred embodiment, a substantial elevation is deemed to be an increase of about 30 percent above the marinobufagenin concentration of a normal patient. The body specimen may be blood, urine, or cerebrospinal fluid.

  • Patent number: 7732696
    Abstract: An instantly playable stringed instrument having a body, neck and fret spaces is provided. The instrument includes a plurality of strings. The strings are tuned such that in combination the sound they produce is an open E minor chord. The instantly playable stringed instrument may further include a plurality of indicators, each indicator corresponding to one fret space. Each indicator indicates a minor chord to be played by depressing all the strings within the fret space the indicator is associated with. The stringed instrument may further include a minor third string that has a color identification to distinguish it from the rest of the plurality of strings. The minor third string may be depressed on an adjacent fret space thereby converting the minor chord associated with the fret space having all strings depressed to a major chord.

  • Patent number: 6246782
    Abstract: A system for automated detection of cancerous masses in mammograms initially identifies regions of interest (ROIs) using Fourier analysis (e.g., by means of an optical correlator). Context data is extracted from the mammogram for each ROI, such as size, location, ranking, brightness, density, and relative isolation from other ROIs. The pixels in the ROI are averaged together to create a smaller array of super-pixels, which are input into a first neural net. A second neural net receives the output values from the first neural net and the context data as inputs and generates an output score indicating whether the ROI contains a cancerous mass. The second neural net can also be provided with context data from another view of the same breast, the same view of the other breast, or a previous mammogram for the same patient.

  • Patent number: 6116977
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a donation container system which includes a sensor for detecting the approach of one or more individuals to the container. The container system also includes a microprocessor and a speaker, so that when the sensor detects the approach of one or more individuals to the container, it sends a signal to the microprocessor which in turn communicates with a voice chip. The voice chip then sends an audio signal to an output speaker so as to produce an audio output.
