  • Publication number: 20220156064
    Abstract: A computer processing system includes a processor to operate in a first computing environment. The processor creates a generic application layer by scrubbing a new application layer within the computer processing system to remove objects associated with the new application layer and specific to the first computing environment. The processor further creates within the computer processing system a single composited layered image by merging the generic application layer with at least one other application layer having objects associated therewith.

  • Publication number: 20190383490
    Abstract: A fireplace is disclosed having a flame screen that is fitted over a gas burner. The gas burner may be an elongated tube having orifices that are configured to produce a row of flames. The row of flames passes through openings in the flame screen to increase the height of the row of flames, change the color of the row of flames, and/or alter a shape or distribution of the row of flames. The flame screen may also facilitate ignition of a gas emitted from the gas burner after the flame screen has been heated by the row of flames.

  • Publication number: 20190184643
    Abstract: A blank is manufactured by additive layer manufacturing. The blank is made up of a part, a tool, and a connection member connecting the tool to the part, which are all integrally formed during the build from the same build material. The connection member can be cut or broken to disconnect the tool from the part which enables the tool to be used to mechanically remove surface build material from the surface of the part.

  • Publication number: 20150189925
    Abstract: A cardiopulmonary protective garment for providing limited protection from lightning is fabricated of a waterproof/breathable fabric, such as a Gore-Tex® laminate or equivalent. The garment keeps a wearer's body dry and supports a lightning flashover event when moist or wet on the outside, protecting the cardiopulmonary system. Strips of an electrically conductive fabric, such as Shieldex® or equivalent, can be attached in various arrangements on a posterior outer surface of the garment for igniting a rapid flashover. The conductive strips also provide attractive design details. In some embodiments, an inner heat shielding and flame resistant layer, made of a fabric such as NOMEX® or equivalent, can increase protection against burning caused by lightning and a flashover.

  • Patent number: 8897829
    Abstract: One aspect provides a method of controlling transmit power in a wireless device, wherein a desired transmit power is determined as a result of detection of a receive signal parameter. The method comprises detecting a desired maximum transmit power and generating a sequence of attenuation factors. The sequence is generated by monotonically increasing a variable at a controlled rate between a starting value and the maximum transmit power. The method further comprises using each attenuation factor in turn to: (a) reduce the measured value of the received signal power; and (b) reduce a determined desired value of the transmit power, where the transmit power is continually reduced as the variable is increased.

  • Patent number: 8282776
    Abstract: Wiping products are disclosed containing an additive composition that enhances the cleaning properties of the product. The additive composition, for instance, comprises an aqueous dispersion containing an alpha-olefin polymer, an ethylene-carboxylic acid copolymer, or mixtures thereof. The alpha-olefin polymer may comprise an interpolymer of ethylene and octene, while the ethylene-carboxylic acid copolymer may comprise ethylene-acrylic acid copolymer. The additive composition may also contain a dispersing agent, such as a fatty acid. The additive composition increases various properties of the product including the ability of the product to quickly absorb oil. For instance, the additive composition can decrease the Oil Absorbency Rate by from about 20% to about 80% and can decrease the Reverse Osmosis Oil Wet Out time by from about 10% to about 80%.

  • Patent number: 8249211
    Abstract: Provided is a modified target assembly in which the target fluid is moved within the target assembly in a manner that increases the effective density of the target fluid within the beam path, thereby increasing beam yield utilizing forced convection. The target may also include optional structures, such as nozzles, diverters and deflectors for guiding and/or accelerating the flow of the target fluid. The target assembly directs the target fluid along an inner sleeve in a direction opposite the direction of the beam current to produce a counter current flow and may also direct the flow of the target fluid away from the inner surface of the inner sleeve and toward a central region in the target cavity. This countercurrent flow suppresses natural convection that tends to reduce the density of the target fluid in the beam path and tends to increase the heat transfer from the target.

  • Publication number: 20100283068
    Abstract: An organic light emitting diode microdisplay device comprises a substrate including active circuitry (16) for addressing sub-pixels (10, 12, 14) of the device formed on the substrate, a metal anode layer (18), organic layers (22) at least including a light-emitting layer, a cathode layer (26) and encapsulation layers (28). The device includes at least one photonic lattice (24) having different, well-defined spacings for each sub-pixel that is arranged to emit light of a different colour. The device relies entirely on the photonic lattice (24) to determine the colour of light outcoupled from each sub-pixel.
