  • Publication number: 20180153440
    Abstract: There is provided a method that includes receiving pulse-oximetry measurements (SpO2) of a patient's peripheral arterial blood oxygen saturation during a first time period, and receiving breathing samples of the patient. The method further includes determining, using breathing samples of the patient, oxygen partial pressure measurements (PAO2) and carbon dioxide partial pressure measurements (PACO2) from exhaled air of the patient during a steady-state breathing of the patient during the first time period.

  • Patent number: 9778953
    Abstract: A method and system for discovering dependencies, configurations and utilizations among IT resources are disclosed. A discovery team writes a prediscovery script without requesting credentials and sends it to a system administrator (SA) who already has necessary credentials to execute the prediscovery script. Then, the SA reviews the prediscovery script and executes the prediscovery script on a target server. While or after executing the prediscovery script, the target server generates a result of an execution of the prediscovery script and provides the result to an analysis system. The analysis system analyzes and parses the result and generates a user-friendly data (e.g., graph or spreadsheet) that represents the result. Then, the analysis system provides the user-friendly data to the discovery team. The analysis system does not require credentials and does not directly communicate with the target server except receiving the result of the executed prediscovery script from the target server.

  • Publication number: 20170277255
    Abstract: The present description discloses systems and methods for changing the state of a device. One embodiment may include a device configured to provide a device in a first state, receive a signal indicative of first angular data of the device, and compare the first angular data to a first threshold. The device may then execute instructions to initiate a timer when the first angular data is greater than the first threshold, receive a signal indicative of a second angular data of the device, and compare the second angular data to a second threshold. When the second angular data is less than the second threshold and the time passed is within a pre-determined time period, the device may execute instructions to transition the device to a second state.

  • Publication number: 20160020961
    Abstract: Ways are disclosed for determining a utilization of a server or group of servers. In one embodiment, a method includes determining a disk utilization factor (DUF) that indicates a utilization of one or more mass-storage disks of some server; determining a processor utilization factor (PUF) that indicates a utilization of one or more processors running on the first server; and based on the DUF and PUF deriving a server-utilization factor (SUF) that indicates a level of utilization of the first server, which includes incorporating one or more of (1) power-usage data or (2) financial-cost data that are associated with each of the disks and processors.

  • Publication number: 20160011724
    Abstract: Methods and devices for providing a user-interface are disclosed. In one embodiment, the method comprises receiving data corresponding to a first position of a wearable computing device and responsively causing the wearable computing device to provide a user-interface. The user-interfaces comprises a view region and a menu, where the view region substantially fills a field of view of the wearable computing device and the menu is not fully visible in the view region. The method further comprises receiving data indicating a selection of an item present in the view region and causing an indicator to be displayed in the view region, wherein the indicator changes incrementally over a length of time. When the length of time has passed, the method comprises responsively causing the wearable computing device to select the item.

  • Patent number: 9190039
    Abstract: A drumhead and a method for coating a drumhead membrane comprising applying a coating having cross linkable polymeric material to the membrane and applying energy to cross link the polymeric material and thereby permanently adhere the material to the membrane as a play surface. The cross-linking not only hardens the coating to improve durability, but also improves the adhesion of the coating to the base film. Actinically cured coatings can completely harden in a matter of 3 to 5 seconds, with UV cured inks being especially desirable.

  • Publication number: 20140268776
    Abstract: A lamp including a base, a neck and a lamp head. The lamp head includes first and second parallel major planar faces and a minor face perpendicular to the first and second parallel major planar faces and disposed therebetween. The first and second parallel major planar faces congruently form an outline of a selected light-associated object. The lamp head further includes first and second light emitting sources disposed between the first and second parallel major planar faces. The first light emitting source externally emits light via at least a portion of the minor face. The second light emitting source projects light to at least selectively illuminate at least a portion of the outlined light-associated object.

  • Patent number: 8621554
    Abstract: A computer program product has a computer-readable storage medium having computer program instructions embodied therein for performing a method for implementing a privacy policy for a user. The method may include the user developing rules that determine whether another user (requester) can access information related to the user. The rules may be stored in a database coupled to a server and evaluated when a request is received from the requester to access the information. If a rule is satisfied by the requester, the server can return the information to the requester. The information can be returned at a level of granularity specified by the user in the satisfied rule. A privacy level can be set by the user to allow access to requesters based on the rules or to deny access to any requesters.

  • Publication number: 20130282667
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and apparatuses to provide a redo repeater that allows for no data loss protection without the performance impact to the primary database even when a significant geographical distance separates the primary and standby databases. The Repeater is a lightweight entity that receives redo from the primary database with the purpose of redistributing that redo throughout the primary/standby system configuration. The Repeater able to extend no data loss protection and switchover functionality to terminal standby databases even though the primary database does not need to have a direct connection with those destinations.

  • Patent number: 8473589
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a router is configured to relay a provisioning request originating from a remote network device to a remote provisioning server. When the router receives back a provisioning response including provisioning information identifying a first remotely stored configuration file, the router is configured to modify the provisioning information such that the modified provisioning information no longer identifies the first remotely stored configuration file. The router then relays the provisioning reply, which may identify a second different configuration file, to the remote network device.
