  • Patent number: 11030701
    Abstract: A matching computer system for electronically generating, matching, and providing online user profiles, and determining a trust score for a user based upon at least social media data and insurance data is provided. The matching computer system may be configured to register users within the matching computer system, receive consent from the users to capture the social media data, and collect the social media data and the insurance data from each registered user. The matching computer system may be also configured to retrieve the social media data and the insurance data associated with each registered user.

  • Publication number: 20210158328
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments may enable synchronization of a display of a mobile computing device with a display of an ATM. The displays first may be synched when a user positions the mobile computing device in proximity to the ATM. Near field communication (NFC) initially may be used when the mobile phone is in proximity with the ATM. Once the communication connection has been realized, the displays may be synchronized to reflect the connection. After the NFC connection has been realized, a cellular connection between a user's mobile computing device with a server having a secure connection with the ATM may be established. One or more financial transactions may be initiated with the ATM from the mobile computing device via the cellular connection. The display of the mobile computing device and the ATM may remain synched during the one or more financial transactions.

  • Publication number: 20210129571
    Abstract: A method for safely differentiating a three dimensional object subsequent to its creation and varnish protection by means of applying and sealing a decoration and/or data between the original and a final varnish layers. The three dimensional object may be decorated and/or contain data from its original manufacturing process but it may also be protected by a varnish prior to utilizing this process. The method enables the addition of decoration and data at any time or location subsequent to the original manufacturing process. The process takes place on top of the original varnish and may be subsequently sealed by applying another varnish layer.

  • Patent number: 10985296
    Abstract: Embodiments of a display device including barrier layer coated quantum dots and a method of making the barrier layer coated quantum dots are described. Each of the barrier layer coated quantum dots includes a core-shell structure and a hydrophobic barrier layer disposed on the core-shell structure. The hydrophobic barrier layer is configured to provide a distance between the core-shell structure of one of the quantum dots with the core-shell structures of other quantum dots that are in substantial contact with the one of the quantum dots. The method for making the barrier layer coated quantum dots includes forming reverse micro-micelles using surfactants and incorporating quantum dots into the reverse micro-micelles. The method further includes individually coating the incorporated quantum dots with a barrier layer and isolating the barrier layer coated quantum dots with the surfactants of the reverse micro-micelles disposed on the barrier layer.

  • Patent number: 10960167
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide for an inspiratory limb for a breathing circuit that includes a first segment that comprises a first heater wire circuit and a second segment that comprises a second heater wire circuit. The inspiratory limb can include an intermediate connector that includes a connection circuit that electrically couples the first heater wire circuit to the second heater wire circuit. The inspiratory limb can be configured to operate in two modes wherein, in a first mode, electrical power passes through the first electrical connection to provide power to the first heater wire circuit without providing power to the second heater wire circuit, and in a second mode, electrical power pass through the first electrical connection to provide power to both the first heater wire circuit and the second heater wire circuit.

  • Patent number: 10954130
    Abstract: A method for producing an additive for reclaiming oil from a fluid product stream and a treated silica with controlled hydrophobicity are disclosed. The method includes the steps of providing silica or silicate with a particle size of between 3.0 ?m to 20 ?m, the silica or silicates having an agglomerate size of between 10 ?m to 100 ?m and being chosen to achieve the desired particle-size range and with a controlled level of hydrophobicity; treating the silica or silicate with a silicone or silane to make it hydrophobic; and controlling the hydrophobicity of the silica or silicate by varying the temperature and treatment time of the silica or silicate, amount of a treating material used to treat the silica or silicate, and the molecular weight of the treating material. The additive improves oil extraction and concentration from a fluid product stream.

  • Publication number: 20210043814
    Abstract: Quantum dots and methods of making quantum dots are described. A method begins with forming quantum dots having a core-shell structure with a plurality of ligands on the shell structure. The method includes exchanging the plurality of ligands with a plurality of second ligands. The plurality of second ligands have a weaker binding affinity to the shell structure than the plurality of first ligands. The plurality of second ligands are then exchanged with hydrolyzed alkoxysilane to form a monolayer of hydrolyzed alkoxysilane on a surface of the shell structure. The method includes forming a barrier layer around the shell structure by using the hydrolyzed alkoxysilane as a nucleation center.
