  • Patent number: 9127477
    Abstract: A latch is provided which includes a housing having a face plate and an internal chamber; a handle is rotatably connected to the housing and includes a solar panel disposed on said front face of the handle. A battery is in electrical communication with the solar panel. A keyhole light encircles a keyhole. A handle light is proximate the handle and provides light thereto. A rear light illuminates an area opposite the front face of the housing. The latch includes a sensor consisting of one or more of the following: a light sensor, a movement sensor, a sound sensor The sensor in electrical communication with one or more of said keyhole light or said handle light or said rear light.

  • Patent number: 9002379
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and system of interaction between groups surrounding a present geo-spatial location of a mobile device are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method of a geo-spatial groups server includes verifying a particular user based on a verification code of the particular user placed through a mobile device communicatively coupled to the geo-spatial groups server. The method creates a group tied to geo-spatial vicinity surrounding a current geo-spatial location of the mobile device. The method associates a name identifier to the group and also permits a different user in the geo-spatial vicinity surrounding the current geo-spatial location of the mobile device to access the group. Further, the method automatically denies a requester user access to the group when the requestor user is outside an outer boundary of the geo-spatial vicinity surrounding the current geo-spatial location of the mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20070217689
    Abstract: Complex multidimensional datasets generated by digital imaging spectroscopy can be organized and analyzed by applying software and computer-based methods comprising sorting algorithms. Combinations of these algorithms to images and graphical data, allow pixels or features to be rapidly and efficiently classified into meaningful groups according to defined criteria. Multiple rounds of pixel or feature selection may be performed based on independent sorting criteria. In one embodiment sorting by spectral criteria (e.g., intensity at a given wavelength) is combined with sorting by temporal criteria (e.g., absorbance at a given time) to identify microcolonies of recombinant organisms harboring mutated genes encoding enzymes having desirable kinetic attributes and substrate specificity. Restriction of the set of pixels analyzed in a subsequent sort based on criteria applied in an earlier sort (“sort and lock” analyses) minimize computational and storage resources.
