  • Publication number: 20190260584
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and media for improving computer security and performance of security are disclosed. In one example, a computer security system comprises a key management monitor, and two key elements comprising a first key element and a second key element. The first key element is stored at a first location address within a computer memory and the second key element is stored at a second location address. The key management monitor is configured to determine or receive a time duration for performing a data dump of contents of the computer memory. In one example, the key management monitor is further configured to control a location of the first key element within the computer memory, wherein the location address of the first key element is changed within a time period that is less than the time duration for performing the data dump of contents of the computer memory.

  • Patent number: 10389723
    Abstract: A news aggregation server aggregates and monetizes restricted news content. The news aggregation server fetches the restricted news content from multiple news source servers that are remote from the news aggregation server. The news aggregation server aggregates the fetched restricted news content and searches the aggregated news content based on input received from a client. The news aggregation server provides access to selected news content from the aggregated news content that is relevant to the client input and charges the user a price for accessing the selected restricted news content.

  • Publication number: 20190251753
    Abstract: Users can view images or renderings of items placed (virtually) within a physical space. For example, a rendering of an item can be placed within a live camera view of the physical space. A snapshot of the physical space can be captured and the snapshot can be customized, shared, etc. The renderings can be represented as two-dimensional images, e.g., virtual stickers or three-dimensional models of the items. Users can have the ability to view different renderings, move those items around, and develop views of the physical space that may be desirable. The renderings can link to products offered through an electronic marketplace and those products can be consumed. Further, collaborative design is enabled through modeling the physical space and enabling users to view and move around the renderings in a virtual view of the physical space.

  • Publication number: 20190249369
    Abstract: A composition that includes plant derived wax having a melting point of at least 70° C. can be used to waterproof cellulose based materials like paper and board. Suitable waxes include sugarcane wax and rice-bran wax. A surfactant such as stearic acid improves the adhesion of the composition to the underlying material. The resulting waterproof laminate can be economically recycled. Hot beverage cups made from the laminate are waterproof and recyclable without first being separated into components. Coffee pods and drinking straws that are waterproof and recyclable are manufactured with the waterproof laminate.

  • Publication number: 20190253104
    Abstract: Technology is described for proximity based communications. A proximity boundary can be defined with dimensions defined, in part, by a communication range of one of a first Short Range Communication (SRC) device and a second SRC device. The first SRC device and the second SRC device can be configured to communicate using near field magnetic induction (NFMI). A proximity signal can be communicated in the proximity boundary between the first SRC device and the second SRC device, wherein at least one of the first and second SRC devices includes at least two antennas to provide magnetic induction diversity. A security permission can be provided to enable selected data to be communicated from one or more of the first SRC device and the second SRC device using NFMI when the proximity signal is detected between the first SRC device and the second SRC device.

The first and second channels receive the cooling fluid from the cavity to cool the body. The second end portion includes a first segmented channel with first metering feature and the third end portion includes a second segmented channel with second exit feature. The first and second exit features meter a flow of the cooling fluid within the first and second channels.

  • Publication number: 20190239890
    Abstract: An end effector for a surgical clip applier includes a housing, and jaws that extend past a distal end of the housing and include opposed first and second jaw members each comprising an independent structure movable relative to the other. The first jaw member defines a first inner surface and the second jaw member defines a second inner surface opposite the first inner surface. An actuation mechanism is operatively coupled to the jaw members and operable to move the jaws between an open position and a closed position. The first and second inner surfaces remain substantially parallel to each other as the jaws move between the open and closed positions.

  • Publication number: 20190239892
    Abstract: An end effector for a surgical clip applier includes an elongate body and a clip track provided within the body and containing one or more surgical clips. Each surgical clip includes a crown and a pair of legs extending longitudinally from the crown and diverging from each other at an obtuse opening angle. A pre-forming region is provided within the body and arranged to receive and deform the one or more surgical clips from a first state, where the pair of legs diverge at the obtuse opening angle, and a second state, where the obtuse opening angle is minimized. First and second jaw members are positioned at a distal end of the body and arranged to receive the one or more surgical clips from the pre-forming region in the second state.

  • Publication number: 20190244557
    Abstract: A color eye-mounted display typically contains different color light emitters, with red, green and blue being the most common color combination. In one approach, the resolution of the red, green and blue components is not the same. For example, there may be more individually addressable red or green subpixels than blue subpixels. In hardware, this may be implemented by using fewer blue light emitters. Alternately, there may be equal numbers of red, green and blue light emitters, but the blue light emitters are not individually addressable and are grouped together to form larger blue subpixels. For example, three or more blue light emitters may form one addressable blue subpixel.
