  • Publication number: 20140342070
    Abstract: Described is a device for establishing desired proportions of water and coffee beans. The device includes a fluid vessel and a laterally attached coffee solid vessel. The fluid vessel has vertical height and a fluid volume capacity, with the fluid vessel being formed to hold water therein. The coffee solid vessel has vertical height and an interior that defines a coffee solid volume capacity, with the coffee solid vessel being formed to hold a solid coffee product therein. Importantly, each of the fluid vessel and coffee solid vessel are formed such that a desired solid-to-fluid ratio exists between the fluid volume capacity and the coffee solid volume capacity when laterally attached with one another, with the desired solid-to-fluid ratio being maintained along the vertical height of each of the vessels (which can be readily verified through a visual inspection of the horizontal equality of contents).

  • Publication number: 20090082551
    Abstract: The present invention is directed towards classifying tumor biomarkers, particularly membrane receptors, and more particularly the gastrin-releasing peptide (GPR) receptors, identified in patient samples, then linking therapeutic agents (chemical, radiological, or biological) to patient-specific ligands that bind to such receptors, clinicians can produce diagnostic and treatment compositions and implement treatment regimens which, by using the classified and identified biomarkers, and due to their improved accuracy, increase success and decrease undesired side effects from such treatments.

  • Publication number: 20080268548
    Abstract: This invention is a method to enhance by orders of magnitude accurate, real-time, stand-off detection by a sensor using Raman spectra of one or more trace compounds of interest (particularly explosives, bioterror organisms, or Volatile Organic Compounds). A colloid, whose medium of suspension is a liquid solvent with a weak Raman spectrum and in which are suspended particles of a noble metal that are preferentially nano-sized to maximize the surface-to-mass ratio for each particle, forms an impingement base. A sample of this colloid is air-pumped through a sampling module, exposed to air potentially carrying trace molecules from the compound of interest, then sent to a detection module that subjects the sample to Raman spectroscopy. The result is first corrected to obtain a unique Raman spectra from the trace molecules, then matched against Raman spectra in a database. Extensions include modifying, flushing, further processing, or recirculating the colloid sample.

  • Publication number: 20080227993
    Abstract: The present invention is a method for making a class of molecules synthesized from unsaturated plant oils, and the synthesized class of molecules, such that when compounded with saturated plant oils they improve the physical properties such as low temperature behavior, measured as cold filter plug point and cloud point for biodiesel fuels and pour point for oils and lubricants, as well as other physical properties including viscosity and viscosity index, so that the physical properties of the combined materials approach the physical properties of unsaturated plant oils and find use as base material feed stocks for “Green” fuel, oil, and lubricant products.

  • Publication number: 20080157039
    Abstract: The present invention is a method for making a chemiluminescent paint whose chemo-fluorescent reaction's active period is controllable as a first-order function of humidity, thus reducing to a second order function the prior art's dependency on ambient temperature, through encapsulating a key reactant in a moisture-sensitive, nano-polymeric structure and combining that encapsulating structure and encapsulated reactant with the other elements necessary for both the excitative and fluorescing reactions of the chemiluminescent paint.

  • Patent number: 6202002
    Abstract: Automatic monitoring system and method for providing an instantaneous tool status indication for a stock removal cutter when cutting workpieces in accordance with a given machining operation for which a substantially new stock removal cutter of the same type has a reference average tool wear coefficient R0. The system includes a torque monitor (7) for measuring a main drive cutting torque M during the cutting of an ith successive workpiece. Coupled to the torque monitor (7), is an instantaneous tool wear coefficient processor (13) for calculating a plurality of instantaneous tool wear coefficients r(j) during the cutting of the ith successive workpiece.
