  • Publication number: 20210009481
    Abstract: Systems and methods for manufacturing an organic liquid fertilizer product are shown. The contemplated systems and methods are configured to treat waste from a natural source in order to produce the organic liquid fertilizer. The liquid organic waste may be derived from an organic source. The liquid organic waste may be pre-treated through an anaerobic digestion process, or it may be treated in a raw form. Advantageously, the systems and methods of the present disclosure may be used to manufacture the organic liquid fertilizer with a sufficiently high nitrogen content, which is usable by plants and crops. The systems and methods are likewise more efficient than known systems and methods to produce such fertilizer products.

  • Patent number: 10869882
    Abstract: Immune function of an animal can be modulated by administration of a composition that includes beta glucan. The beta glucan can be derived from Euglena, which provides a form of beta glucan that is different from other organisms, where the beta glucan is predominantly unbranched beta-(1,3)-glucan. Beta glucan can also be complexed with a metal, such as zinc, and/or can combined with an animal feed component to form an animal feed composition. Use of such compositions can improve the well being of an animal, and may augment or even replace the use of antibiotics in certain circumstances.

  • Publication number: 20200275772
    Abstract: A desk system including desktop, legs, and foot elements is presented. Each leg is rotatably attached at one end to the desktop and attached at another end to one foot element which is also rotatable. The system is disposed in a stowed configuration when legs and foot elements are substantially parallel to the desktop and legs are disposed between and substantially parallel to foot elements. The system is disposed in an upright configuration when legs are substantially perpendicular to the desktop and each leg is substantially perpendicular to one foot element. The system is configured from stowed to upright by separately rotating legs about a minor axis in opposite directions away from one another and by separately rotating foot elements about a major axis in opposite directions toward one another.

  • Publication number: 20200160382
    Abstract: Systems and methods for implementing point of advertising purchasing include using mass media publications configured for or containing service, product or vendor transmittable signals, such as from radio frequency identification tags. In a preferred arrangement, a consumer perceiving an advertisement of the mass media publication may activate a reader in a portable communications device, such as a smart mobile or cellular phone, to receive information from the radio frequency signal associated with the advertisement to identify a vendor, product or service associated with the radio frequency identification. The smart mobile phone or communications device of the consumer may communicate with a system of a vendor or vendors by way of a commerce data organization system across a network to order a product or product information from a system of the vendor over the network by using the information from the radio frequency identification.

  • Publication number: 20200082089
    Abstract: A variety of applications can include apparatus and/or methods of controlling a secure boot mode for a memory system. In an embodiment, a system includes a memory component and a processing device, where the processing device is configured to control a boot process for the system to operate the memory component and perform a cryptographic verification with a host to conduct an authentication of the host. The processing device can interact with the host, in response to the authentication, to receive a setting to control the boot process in a secure boot mode. The processing can interact with another processing device of the system to store the setting and to receive a secure boot signal from the other processing device, where the secure boot signal is a signal to assert or de-assert the secure boot mode depending on a value of the setting. Additional apparatus, systems, and methods are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190206009
    Abstract: This disclosure covers methods, non-transitory computer readable media, and systems that analyze sensory data from a client device to determine a user is traveling on a mass-transit vehicle and to dispatch a transportation vehicle for pickup of the user at a pickup location corresponding to a mass-transit station. To coordinate matching a user with a transportation vehicle, the methods, non-transitory computer readable media, and systems determine an estimated transit time of a user to one (or both) of the mass-transit station and the pickup location and select a transportation vehicle positioned to arrive at the pickup location by the estimated transit time.
