  • Patent number: 11830731
    Abstract: The present disclosure pertains to embodiments of a semiconductor deposition reactor manifold and methods of using the semiconductor deposition reactor manifold which can be used to deposit semiconductor layers using processes such as atomic layer deposition (ALD). The semiconductor deposition reactor manifold has a bore, a first supply channel, and a second supply channel. Advantageously, the first supply channel and the second supply channel merge with the bore in an offset fashion which leads to reduced cross-contamination within the supply channels.

  • Patent number: 11829927
    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses, systems, and computer program products for interactive deliveries are provided. For an upcoming service point that is associated with a service point device, it is determined whether the item to be delivered to the service point is within an activation zone for activating the service point device. Responsive to determining that the item is within the activation zone, the service point device is remotely activated. Remotely activating the service point device triggers dynamical provision of an alert interface. An indication of user interaction via the user interface indicating availability of the user to receive the item is received. A notification of the indication of the user interaction is provided. If the notification indicates that the individual is available to receive the item at the service point, the item is delivered to or picked-up from the service point.

  • Publication number: 20230372381
    Abstract: Compositions discussed herein are useful for treating a patient infected with a coronavirus, notably SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19. The compositions to be administered to an infected patient utilize inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2 papain-like protease (PLpro). Several of these inhibitors include available hepatitis C virus (HCV) drugs that are already FDA-approved. These PLpro inhibitors have been found to be strongly synergistic with inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2 polymerases, such as RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp). One such polymerase inhibitor, remdesivir, is already in use as an anti-viral treatment of patients with COVID-19. The PLpro inhibitors, including repurposed HCV drugs such as grazoprevir, vaniprevir, and paritaprevir, increase remdesivir's ability to suppress coronavirus replication antiviral activity as much as 10-fold.

  • Patent number: 11814345
    Abstract: Described is an extraction device for extracting compounds from plant material and a method for using such an extraction device. The extraction device comprises an extraction tank receiving plant material and dissolving soluble compounds inside the plant material into a solvent to form a micelle. A series of fluidly connected separation chambers separate purified compounds from the micelle, resulting in purified compounds in each of the separation chambers and solvent. A heat exchanger and a chilled reservoir are used for cooling and storing the solvent. A pump is used for pumping and circulating the solvent into the extraction device. Finally, a control system automatically controls temperature and flow in the extraction device.

  • Publication number: 20230331255
    Abstract: Each of a plurality of landing pads is sized and shaped to accommodate an AV. Landing pad sensor(s) are located in or around each landing pad. A control subsystem receives landing pad sensor data from the one or more landing pad sensors and receives, from a first AV traveling to a location of the plurality of landing pads, a request for an assigned landing pad in which the first AV should park. In response to this request, the control subsystem determines, based on the received landing pad sensor data, whether a first landing pad is free of obstructions that would prevent receipt of the first AV. If the first landing pad is free of obstructions, an indication is provided to the AV that the first landing pad is the assigned landing pad.

  • Patent number: 11772875
    Abstract: A system for holding multiple beverage containers may include a cooler or carrier with toting handles, closing tabs, and base. The base may be formed from a molded plastic, rubber or synthetic rubber material. The base may also include feet that hold the base a sufficient height from the ground. The base may have a generally conic tapering drain floor that makes up its top surface. The tapering drain floor may make draining the carrier easier by directing water toward a drain hole located in the base. Extending up from the base may be a multi-layer soft-sided wall where different layers perform different desired functions. For example, an inside layer closest to the internal cavity may be a waterproof layer, a middle layer may be an insulating layer, and an external layer may be a decorative layer.
