  • Patent number: 10678761
    Abstract: In accordance with an embodiment, described herein is a system and method for high availability and load balancing in a database environment. A transparency engine can be provided between client applications and a database, and can operate as a proxy engine for the database and as a session abstraction layer for the client applications, to enable the client applications to utilize database features provided by the connection pool without code changes to the client applications. The transparency can keep track of session states, request boundaries and cursors to efficiently reuse the database connections across the client applications. The transparency engine can use the request boundaries and indicators from the database to detect safe places to drain database connections in the event of database outages.

  • Publication number: 20200145215
    Abstract: Secure password lock and recovery is provided. A user password is received to access a secure resource protected by a data processing system. It is determined whether a match exists between a retrieved user password verification string corresponding to a valid user password from a storage of a software token and a generated user password verification string corresponding to the user password. In response to determining that a match does not exist between the retrieved user password verification string and the generated user password verification string, it is determined whether a defined number of user password authentication attempts has been exceeded. In response to determining that the defined number of user password authentication attempts has been exceeded, the retrieved user password verification string is set to a preestablished sequence of values locking the valid user password on the storage of the software token. Access to the secure resource is denied.

  • Patent number: 10568975
    Abstract: Surface conjugated diamagnetic Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer (diaCEST) agent carriers and methods of making and using are described herein. The particles are safe alternatives to conventional paramagnetic or superparamagnetic metal-based MRI contrast agents that are often toxic and therefore not biocompatible. The carriers described herein can provide simultaneous monitoring of multiple particle types labeled with ‘multicolor’ diaCEST contrast agents. In some embodiments, the carriers are micro- and/or nanoparticles. In other embodiments, the carriers are liposomes. In some embodiments, the particles and/or liposomes are mucus penetrating. In other embodiments, the particles and/or liposomes are not mucus penetrating.

  • Publication number: 20190313575
    Abstract: A seed firmer and bracket combination for a planter row unit. The bracket includes a forward configured to mount to a frame member of the planter row unit. A rearward portion extends rearward of the seed tube or seed conveyor. The seed firmer includes a body having an upper portion, a tail portion, and a resilient flexible portion between the upper portion and the tail portion. The upper portion is releasably received in a vertical opening in the bracket such that the resilient flexible portion and tail portion extend downwardly and rearwardly from the bracket. The seed firmer is releasably restrained in the bracket preventing the seed firmer from moving upward, forward, rearward and downward until the upper portion of the seed firmer is disengaged from the bracket.

  • Patent number: 10357396
    Abstract: A patient warming device with patient access for maintaining normothermia and/or treating hypothermia is provided. The device includes a first compliant layer and a second compliant layer sealed together around an outer border to contain a liquid between the two layers and to form a wrap that surrounds and conforms to a body portion of a patient. A plurality of flaps extends from opposite sides of a generally longitudinal central portion of the wrap, such that one or more flaps from the opposite sides fasten to each other to surround the body portion. The flaps are openable during functional use to provide access to an underlying patient body surface. A continuous fluid flow path extends between the first compliant layer and the second compliant layer between a fluid inlet and a fluid outlet to carry liquid and deliver heat through the wrap.

  • Patent number: 10267881
    Abstract: CEST MR imaging, called Multi-echo Parametric VARiation Saturation (Me-PaVARS) CEST places multiple image readouts in between a series of saturation pulses. The saturation pulse parameters are varied in a designated systematic pattern, which allows the generation of CEST contrast maps by encoding the patterns of signal loss into the images for better discrimination between various CEST imaging agents. The saturation parameter changes include, but are not limited to, saturation amplitude (B1), saturation length (tsat), number of pulses, shape of saturation pulses, amplitude of saturation pulses, saturation offset frequency, or a combination of these variations.
