  • Publication number: 20210277199
    Abstract: A foam article, such as a cushioning element for an article of footwear, apparel or sporting equipment is provided that comprises a foam component, such as a midsole, having a number of beneficial physical characteristics. The cushioning element is a low-density foamed component with a surface skin that encases the remaining foam volume. The cushioning element has a number of foam volumes, arranged to achieve a more consistent foam component. Additionally, the cushioning element includes a series of concentric ridges extending radially outwardly from injection gate vestige locations, and a number of striation bands near the perimeter of the cushioning element. The location of the gate vestiges can be beneficially arranged to produce intersecting flow boundaries that are located away from key strain areas of the cushioning element. The cushioning element is more environmentally-friendly, requiring less energy to produce while still providing acceptable energy return and low density.

  • Patent number: 11062411
    Abstract: Operations include identifying students at risk of dropping out or transferring from an academic institution. A student risk analyzer determines a risk score for a student, which may be used to determine whether the student is at-risk. The risk score may be based on a combination of factors. As an example, the risk score may be based on a similarity between (a) attributes of the student and (b) attributes of students that have previously dropped out or transferred to other institutions. A student retention interface displays risk information for students in aggregate form or individual form. The interface may display student information in a student-population view comprising aggregate student information. The interface may display a risk-category view comprising a subset of students. The interface may display an individual-profile view comprising detailed information about a particular student. The interface may allow for drill-down navigation between the views.

  • Publication number: 20210170613
    Abstract: In an electric handheld hair trimmer and method of operating the same, at least one of a first blade and a second blade of a blade assembly is operatively connected to a motor for driven movement in a working direction. A displacement mechanism is operable to selectively displace at least one of the first blade and the second blade independent of operation of the motor. The displacement mechanism includes at least one of an actuator or a separator. The actuator is movable along the longitudinal axis relative to the body and operatively connected to the second blade to selectively move the second blade along the longitudinal axis relative to the first blade independent of operation of the motor. The separator is operable independently of the motor and is positionable between the first blade and the second blade to at least in part separate the first blade from the second blade.

  • Patent number: 10958481
    Abstract: In an example, a hierarchical chaining gateway (hCG) includes a first communication interface corresponding to a first domain using a first chaining protocol, and a second communication interface corresponding to a second domain using a second and different chaining protocol. The hCG receives a service packet including a first service function chain header via the first communication interface. The hCG also identifies a key identifier in the service packet, and retrieves a second service function chain header based on the key identifier. Then, the hCG transforms the service packet by substituting the first service function chain header corresponding to first domain in the service packet with the second service function chain header corresponding to the second domain. Next, the hCG transmits the service packet including the second service function chain header via the second communication interface corresponding to the second domain.

  • Publication number: 20210044445
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a data packet from a source endpoint included within a source endpoint group identified by a source endpoint group policy identifier, where the data packet includes a first multicast address. The method also includes transforming the data packet into a transformed data packet that includes a second multicast address constructed using the source endpoint group policy identifier and a multicast index that specifies a multicast forwarding policy between the source endpoint group and one or more destination endpoint groups identified by one or more destination endpoint group policy identifiers. The method further includes forwarding the transformed data packet toward one or more destination endpoints included within the one or more destination endpoint groups, with the forwarding being based on the second multicast address. The data packet may be routed using a forwarding path based on a multicast forwarding tree constructed for the second multicast address.

  • Publication number: 20200311228
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments prevent tampering of a software release date associated with a software application by incorporating the software release date into a key exchange with a security domain. If the software release date is tampered with, then the key exchange results in the wrong key exchange key. Without the correct key exchange key, the software application will fail its check of the license, and the software application will no longer continue to run.
