  • Publication number: 20190188806
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method and system is provided that involves a plurality of users of a social network. The method and system are configured to interact with the plurality of users to generate recommendations, wherein each recommendation is made by a first user and recommends a second user, and store data representing the recommendations. Total recommendation weights corresponding to the plurality of users as well as recommendation weights corresponding to the recommendations are dynamically calculated, and data representing the total recommendation weights corresponding to the plurality of users and data representing the recommendation weights corresponding to the recommendations is stored in data storage. Data representing the total recommendation weight corresponding to a given user can be displayed in conjunction with the display of at least part of a profile of the given user.

  • Publication number: 20150012431
    Abstract: Method and system for performing transactions between buyers and suppliers, which by means of a transactions server centralise and supervise each one of the phases involved in the complete transactions, guarantying that an order made by a buyer to a supplier and a carrier is paid for and guarantying that the buyer does not pay the supplier and carrier until he has received the order under the agreed conditions. The process is completely automatic and establishes condition of sale and timeframes, which may be negotiated between the parties but which, once agreed, become binding for all parties concerned. The lender awards purchase credits to the buyers, so that once the agreed conditions and timeframes have been fulfilled, the corresponding payments may be made automatically.

  • Patent number: 8609168
    Abstract: The invention relates to a food cooking control method and device. The method includes the following steps in which: at least one temperature detection device is inserted into a food; a final equilibrium temperature is defined; the detection device is positioned inside the food in a pre-determined detection zone so that a temperature (TC) can be obtained at all times during cooking; the TC temperature data obtained are processed using the detection device; the temperature of the surface through which the food receives heat (TP) is determined and processed and the variation in temperature TC is evaluated at least to the first derivative. The device includes a detection device intended to be inserted into the food, a device for determining the thickness of the food and a device for inserting the detection device into the food to a pre-determined depth.

  • Patent number: 7843231
    Abstract: A temperature-compensated voltage comparator (301) that compares first and second input voltages includes first and second bipolar junction transistors (BJTs) (221 and 222) that convert the first and second input voltages to first and second input currents, respectively. The first and second BJTs share a same thermal environment and their currents are dependent upon temperature. A temperature-compensating circuit (350), which includes a zero thermal coefficient reference (419), generates a logarithmic temperature-compensating factor that compensates for temperature dependency of the first and second BJTs. The temperature-compensating circuit receives one of the input currents, and outputs a temperature-compensated current that is said input current multiplied by the logarithmic temperature-compensating factor. The temperature-compensating circuit shares a thermal environment with the first and second BJTs.
