  • Patent number: 10310712
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to multicomputer processing of client device request data with centralized event orchestration. A computing platform may receive, from a client computing device, event definition information defining an event. Subsequently, the computing platform may receive, from a recipient computing device associated with the event, a request for a delivery selection user interface. The computing platform may send the delivery selection user interface to the recipient computing device and may receive, from the recipient computing device, delivery selection information identifying a destination for the event selected by a user of the recipient computing device. Subsequently, the computing platform may generate one or more event orchestration commands directing an external event processor to execute one or more actions associated with the event, and may send the one or more event orchestration commands to the external event processor via an external event processing interface.

  • Patent number: 8585569
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for altering the charge distribution upon living membranes with functional stabilizational of the membrane physical electrical integrity further comprising a method for using submicroscopic, quadripolar, circular, center charged, energy balanced magnetic device in a four (4) magnet array of alternating polarity in which the magnetic poles are separated only by a distance which will allow a magnetic sphere of influence on all adjacent poles to suppress the firing of action potentials of mammalian sensory neurons. The method and apparatus further provides a static magnetic device for production of a magnetic field for treatment of various disorders.

  • Publication number: 20120102822
    Abstract: A fuel additive comprising a sol containing particles of at least one inorganic-metallic component and at least one organo-metallic component stabilized in a suitable hydrocarbon medium. The components are formed as a metal complex wherein the metallic element comprises at least one metal selected from the elements of Groups VIII to XI in the Periodic Table, preferably platinum, cobalt, nickel, copper, gold, rhodium or, most preferably, palladium. The organo component is an alkyl carboxylate, preferably acetate, and the inorganic component is derived from silicon, titanium, aluminum, and preferably silicate. The additive is preferably formed by (a) forming an aqueous solution of at least one metallic component; (b) forming a colloid of organo-metallic and inorganic-metallic components from said solution; and (c) extracting at least some of the metallic colloidal components from the aqueous solution using a suitable hydrocarbon medium under controlled PH, temperature and time.

  • Patent number: 7374590
    Abstract: A process of treating high sulfur coal to reduce sulfur dioxide emission when the high sulfur coal is burned comprising placing coal in pressure tank (16) of reduced pressure sufficient to fracture a portion of the coal by withdrawing ambient fluids trapped within the coal. The fractured coal is contacted with an aqueous silica colloid composition supersaturated with calcium carbonate via conduit (21), and the majority of the aqueous composition is then removed from contact with the coal. The aqueous composition-treated coal is pressurized in pressure tank (16) under a carbon dioxide atmosphere for a period of time sufficient for the calcium carbonate to enter fractures in the coal produced in the first step.

  • Publication number: 20040166246
    Abstract: A process for reducing the rate of deterioration of wood that includes contacting the wood with an aqueous alkanline colloidal silicon-containing slat composition that is supersaturated with a boron-containing salt. The contacting may be at ambient or elevated temperature and pressure. The composition is an aqueous colloidal silicon-containing salt that is supersaturated with a boron-containing salt and optionally includes an aluminum salt and a preservative. The composition is made by mixing the boron-containing salt with a colloidal, aqueous mixture of a silicon-containing salt and optionally adding the aluminum salt and the preservative. The process is performed under conditions that result in a supersaturated solution of the boron-containing salt. Wood treated with the composition appears to be resistant to insects, rot, UV deterioration, fire, and other environmental insults. The wood also appears to have increased strength.

  • Patent number: 5658573
    Abstract: The effectiveness and/or hydrating ability of body care compositions, such as moisturizers, skin creams, body lotions, shampoo, hair conditioner, styling gel, styling mist, hair dye, bath additives, pedicure and manicure products, facial cleanser, facial mist, suntan lotions, and sunscreen lotions, are enhanced by the addition thereto of an aqueous suspension containing small concentrations of colloidal silica. The colloidal silica particles are charged and of a size between about 10 angstroms and 100 angstroms. An aqueous solution of colloidal silica particles is prepared by circulating the solution through a magnetic field so that the particles cut the field flux lines and build up a net negative charge thereon. It is preferred that the solution be passed through a magnetic void after passing through a magnetic field to allow the particles to configure themselves without the influence of external magnetic fields.
