  • Publication number: 20210121430
    Abstract: This invention relates to methods for treating dry eye and improving the quality of the meibum composition of inflamed or dysfunctional meibomian glands of a mammal, comprising the steps of administering a composition consisting essentially of an effective amount of omega-3 fatty acids on a daily dosage basis to the mammal having inflamed or dysfunctional meibomian glands, wherein the effective amount of omega-3 fatty acids comprises eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in an amount greater than 600 mg and in the re-esterified triglyceride form, and wherein the composition administered does not include any additional omega-6 fatty acids beyond the range normally found in the source material of the omega-3 fatty acids. The composition administered may facilitate an increase in levels of anti-inflammatory omega-3?s in the meibum composition of the treated meibomian glands of the mammal and a decrease in the levels of inflammatory omega-6?s in the meibum composition of the treated meibomian glands.

  • Patent number: 10993062
    Abstract: Audio content coded for a reference speaker configuration is downmixed to downmix audio content coded for a specific speaker configuration. One or more gain adjustments are performed on individual portions of the downmix audio content coded for the specific speaker configuration. Loudness measurements are then performed on the individual portions of the downmix audio content. An audio signal that comprises the audio content coded for the reference speaker configuration and downmix loudness metadata is generated. The downmix loudness metadata is created based at least in part on the loudness measurements on the individual portions of the downmix audio content.

  • Patent number: 10990259
    Abstract: Techniques for optimizing window move actions for a remoted application are provided, where the remoted application has an application window running within a remote desktop of a server system, and where the application window is made accessible to a user of a client system in the form of a client-side application window displayed in a client desktop of the client system. In one embodiment, the client system can receive from the server system a notification that the application window has begun moving in the remote desktop, and can determine that the user is currently entering one or more input commands for moving the client-side application window in the client desktop. The client system can further send a command to the server system for stopping the movement of the application window in the remote desktop, such that the application window is fixed in a stationary position.

  • Publication number: 20210120337
    Abstract: Audio data in a first format may be processed to produce audio data in a second format, which may be a reduced or simplified version of the first format. A loudness correction process may produce loudness-corrected audio data in the second format. A first power of the audio data in the second format and a second power of the loudness-corrected audio data in the second format may be determined. A second-format loudness correction factor for the audio data in the second format may be based, at least in part, on a power ratio between the first power and the second power. A first-format loudness correction factor for the audio data in the first format may be based, at least in part, on the power ratio and a power relationship between the audio data in the first format and the audio data in the second format.

  • Patent number: 10938167
    Abstract: One embodiment is directed to detecting that a cable has been connected to a port of patching equipment and detecting that the cable is no longer connected to said port. In response to detecting that the cable is no longer connected, information associated with fixed cabling coupled to said port that is captured by a cable tester is downloaded to a controller. The downloaded information is associated with said port and the downloaded information and association information is locally stored at the controller. The locally stored information can then be used to create and/or populate objects in a database. Another embodiment is directed to including a storage device and a wireless interface in patching equipment or other equipment such as an outlet or consolidation point for use in writing information to the storage device and reading information from the storage device via the wireless interface. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10826840
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for a packet processing pipeline of a network forwarding integrated circuit. The method stores two copies of a stateful table used by the packet processing pipeline. The stateful table is modified according to data processed by the packet processing pipeline. Upon receiving data to write to the stateful table, the method generates (i) a first copy of the received data along with an indicator for a first one of the copies of the stateful table and (ii) a second copy of the received data along with an indicator for a second one of the copies of the stateful table. The method sends the first copy of the received data into the packet processing pipeline before sending the second copy of the received data into the packet processing pipeline.
