  • Patent number: 10733210
    Abstract: Techniques for reducing electronic resource consumption using search data are disclosed herein. In some embodiments, a computer-implemented method comprises: identifying a cohort of profiles from profiles based on a determination that at least one attribute is shared among the profile data of the cohort; receiving corresponding search appearance data including an impression count for the cohort of profiles; selecting reference profiles from the cohort based on the impression counts of the reference profiles; selecting a target profile from the cohort based on the impression count of the target profile; identifying a trend corresponding to at least one feature among the reference profiles; and causing an indication of the feature(s) to be displayed on a computing device of the user of the target profile based on the identifying of the trend.

  • Publication number: 20170031886
    Abstract: A contextual profile system is provided with an on-line social network system. In response to a request from a member of the on-line social network system to access a profile page of another member, the contextual profile system determines the context of the request, determines associated key profile units based on the context, and constructs a custom version of the other member's profile page. The custom version of the profile page is then presented to the requesting member.

  • Patent number: 8858120
    Abstract: A liquid containment barrier is formed by corrugated panels connected end to end and supported by upstanding brackets at spaced positions around the peripheral wall and a liner attached to the wall. Each panel has the top edge as a raw edge with a plurality of elongate extruded plastics spring channel members engaged over the top edge. A plurality of additional clamp collars are arranged to surround a part cylindrical portion of the channel members to bridge between panels and to form a local clamping force on the channel member. Each bracket has an inner vertical edge engaging the panels and a rod member hooked to the brace at the lower end and engaging over the channel members at the upper end. The bracket also includes an upwardly extending flange parallel to the inner edge to form a channel for the bottom edge of the panel.

  • Patent number: 5935376
    Abstract: A process for the continuous preparation of non-expanded honeycomb core from non-precorrugated web involves the progressive corrugation and consolidation of web by a corrugating/consolidating unit containing corrugating and consolidating elongate teeth which traverses a bed unit containing sets of former bars, forming a half cell height of honeycomb at each pass. A plurality of node-antinode demes of the topmost half cell layer being formed are consolidated while new corrugations and associated node-antinode demes are being formed. The process allows for more lengthy consolidation time, a smaller temperature differential between consolidating teeth and the node-antinode demes being consolidated, and further allows the corrugating and consolidation temperatures to be substantially independent of each other. The process may be implemented through use of a corrugating/consolidation unit having a travelling belt containing corrugating and/or consolidating teeth which may be individually and selectively heated.

  • Patent number: 5538439
    Abstract: A combination of an engine block heater and electrical coupling includes the conventional cylindrical insert which slides into a sleeve on the mounting member for the block heater. An additional spring clip member is provided to hold the electrical coupling in place. The spring clip member has a collar surrounding a rib on the connector body and a pair of spring arms extending at right angles to the collar along a sleeve of the coupling to snap behind a rib on the sleeve. The spring clip arms are connected to the collar at an outer edge thereof with a pair of lobes of increased diameter between the spring clip arms for pushing of the collar longitudinally. A central opening of the collar engages over the connector body with a pair of inwardly projecting portions which slide along slots to a groove at the rib on the connector body.
