  • Publication number: 20100046764
    Abstract: An audio signal processing circuit includes a variable gain control circuit controlled by a control signal; and an energy level detection circuit operable over the audio frequency spectrum for monitoring the audio input signal and producing the control signal. The control signal is adjustable in a manner to alter the energy of the audio input signal using the variable gain control device. The energy level detection circuit includes a variable filter configured to boost a first set of frequencies as compared to the second set of frequencies; and, a rectifier and an integrator connected in series or parallel, each having an input and an output, wherein the rectifier is operatively coupled to the variable filter and the integrator is coupled to the rectifier, and wherein the output from the integrator is used as the control signal to control the variable gain control device.

  • Publication number: 20060154322
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method of determining a standard comestible Equivalent Glycemic Load of a dietary comestible comprising: (a) establishing a reliable glycemic response index for a standard comestible, wherein the index correlates glycemic response with glycemic load; (b) determining the glycemic response produced by a dietary comestible, and (c) identifying the standard comestible glycemic load from the index which is correlated with the glycemic response of the dietary comestible.

  • Patent number: 6354737
    Abstract: An orientation marker for a digital radiogram formed by a plurality of pixels arrayed along a plurality of rows and columns. The pixels have densities which represent the radiogram optical density at each pixel point, and the densities are represented by digital values. The marker is made by a number of marker pixels arrayed along at least one row and one column of the radiogram. Each of the pixels forming the marker, have a marker pixel digital value which has been selected to form an asymmetrical marker pixel pattern on the radiogram, replacing the original radiogram pixel values.

  • Patent number: 5239479
    Abstract: A process for determining the presence or the dimensions or the correct positioning of a tool which is clamped in the main clamping device of a numerically controlled machine tool opposite which a displaceable component of the machine is arranged, wherein for a displacement of the component towards the workpiece an intended position value is predetermined and the actual position value of the component is continuously determined repetitively, is further developed so that this can be done more simply.

  • Patent number: 5165599
    Abstract: A rail-tie fastening assembly for connecting a rail having a rail flange to a tie comprising a rail seat assembly and a rail anchor. The rail seat assembly is connectable to the tie and includes an anchor slot and a seat hook assembly. The seat hook assembly is adapted to extend a distance over an upper surface of the rail flange. The rail anchor includes an anchor hook assembly adapted to extend over on the upper surface of the rail flange in an assembled position of the rail anchor to the rail seat assembly. The rail anchor is insertable through the anchor slot in the rail seat assembly to the assembled position. The seat hook assembly is spaced a distance from the upper surface of the rail in the assembled position of the rail anchor to the rail seat assembly. The anchor hook assembly engages one side of the rail flange and the seat hook assembly engages the opposite side of the rail flange to restrain lateral movement.

  • Patent number: 4359958
    Abstract: A cargo transport system is characterized by a container having a cargo carrying volume therein, the container being disposed within a receptacle. The container is movable with respect to the receptacle from a first, lowered, position to a second, elevated, position. In the second position, the exterior surface of the container and the receptacle cooperate to define a separate, commercially attractive cargo receiving volume adapted to receive therein a cargo different from the cargo disposable in the cargo carrying volume. The container may be lifted to and then locked into the elevated position. Cargo is introduced into the cargo receiving volume through a cargo access arrangement. The cargo transport system may be adapted for barge, rail, truck, or other transportation modes. Either the receptacle or the container, or both, may be insulated to facilitate carriage of an elevated temperature cargo within the container and/or the receptacle.

  • Patent number: 4036109
    Abstract: Device for moving and positioning an element of a machine comprising a hydraulically controlled valve shaft sliding in a sleeve and two output ducts in which the oil pressure depends on the position of the valve shaft. The oil pressure in the two output ducts is supplied respectively to two compartments of a hydraulic jack which positions and moves the carriage or slide of a machine tool. Two control chambers in between the valve shaft and sleeve jack include a constant volume part formed between shoulders on the valve shaft and a variable volume part formed by a slidable piston inside of a longitudinally extending cylindrical cavity inside the valve shaft. The cylindrical cavities extend to respective outer ends of said valve piston with fixed stops attached to the sleeve ends. The valve shaft is mechanically coupled to the mobile unit with the jack by a spring biased lost-motion pivot lever connection.
