  • Publication number: 20200260229
    Abstract: A network system detects lost client devices based on a comparison of geospatial locations transmitted by user and provider client devices during and after a service. The network system assigns a service status indicating that a service from a start location to a destination location is in progress and monitors the locations of the user and provider client devices during the duration of the service and for a specified period of time after the service ends. In response to determining that the user and provider client devices remain in proximity to each other after the service has ended, the network system notifies the user of the lost device.

  • Publication number: 20180020655
    Abstract: An insect elimination device has an outer grid with an inner grid disposed within the outer grid. A voltage source powers the inner grid, the outer grid or both. A warming tube is disposed within the inner grid and provides a thermal lure. A UV light source is disposed within the warming tube to provide a first optical lure. A control circuit controls the duty cycle, which is greater than 0% and less than 100%, of the UV light source while the voltage source is powering the elimination zone of the inner grid and the outer grid to keep the thermal lure within a predetermined temperature range.

  • Patent number: 9301517
    Abstract: A pest trap, such as for flies, includes a disposable bag with a lure therein, and a sealing mechanism set at or near the top of the bag. The sealing mechanism engages with a removable top, which covers a canister. The bag with sealing mechanism is connected to the top, and then the top is placed on the canister, with the disposable bag in the canister. Once the bag has become filled with pest insects, the sealing mechanism is activated, which seals the top of the bag and separates the bag from the top. The top can then be removed from the canister, and the canister upended to dump the disposable bag into the garbage.

  • Patent number: 7758800
    Abstract: Among other things, the present invention provides a system and method for improved infusion of a fiber containing preform with a resin. The system comprises a mould base portion adapted to support the preform and a mould closure portion adapted to overlie the mould base portion in sealable relation to define a mould chamber containing the preform. One or more sensors are attached to the mould base portion and/or to the mould closure portion for monitoring flow characteristics of the resin within the mould chamber. A control means responsive to the sensing means is operatively connected to a resin pump and to a vacuum pump for varying the flow of resin within the mould chamber by varying either or both of the volumetric flow rate of the resin and the level of vacuum within the mould chamber to control infusion of the preform.

  • Patent number: 7487137
    Abstract: An apparatus, system, and method are disclosed for generating a delta across like java bean components. The apparatus includes a store module, a comparison module, and a delta module. The store module stores a first java bean on a client. The comparison module compares a second java bean to the first java bean at the client. The second java bean is similar in format to the first java bean. The delta module generates a delta at the client. The apparatus, system, and method improve efficiency of a network system by decreasing network overhead when delta java beans are transmitted in place of the first or second java beans.

  • Publication number: 20070074409
    Abstract: A pencil sharpener including housing, a rotary seat disposed in the housing, and a driver for rotationally driving the rotary seat. A blade unit includes two rotary blades that are disposed on the rotary seat and converge to define a sharpening angle. The sharpener also includes cooperating gears that rotate each blade about its associated longitudinal axis, and rotate the blades about a central axis therebetween. One of the rotary blades has a reduced diameter section, and the rotary seat has a projecting stop that corresponds to the reduced diameter section. The stop is positioned in a cavity of the rotary seat for the tip of a pencil to abut against so as to locate the pencil.

  • Patent number: 7102038
    Abstract: A process for making a selectively branched alcohol composition contacting a lower olefin feed comprising linear olefins having at least 3 carbon atoms and a concentration of phosphorous-containing compounds with a sorbent comprising a metal or metal oxide on a support, thereby substantially reducing the concentration of phosphorous-containing compounds and producing a purified lower olefin feed. The purified lower olefin feed is skeletally isomerized and then treated to selectively hydrogenate dienes before hydroformylation to produce selectively branched alcohols.
