  • Patent number: 10888878
    Abstract: An apparatus for manipulating particles includes: a rotor rotatable at a speed about an axis, the rotor having an outer periphery and front and rear opposite sides; at least one chamber mounted on the rotor, each chamber having an inlet and an outlet; an umbilical assembly rotatable about the axis; and a drive mechanism configured to rotate the umbilical assembly at about one-half the speed of the rotor. The umbilical assembly includes: a curvilinear guide tube connecting to a drum at the rear side of the rotor; a flexible conduit residing in the guide tube; and first and second elongate passageways for each chamber extending through the conduit, wherein the first passageway is in fluid communication with the inlet of a respective chamber and the second passageway is in fluid communication with the outlet of the respective chamber. The passageways are held in a spaced-apart relationship relative to one another.

  • Patent number: 10255359
    Abstract: Metadata is stored, wherein the metadata is associated with a pre-publication draft of the item of authored content, the metadata including a draft title and a pre-publication set of one or more authors. It is determined that no result in a first set of search results received from a repository of publication information in response to a first query based on the draft title satisfies one or more match criteria to be considered a match to the pre-publication draft of the item of authored content. In response to said determination, a second query based on the draft title and the pre-publication set of one or more authors is formulated and submitted to the repository. A second set of search results is received in response to the second query, each search result being associated with an associated published item of authored content, each published item of authored content having associated therewith a title as published and a list of authors as published.

  • Publication number: 20160085900
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a methodology for designing an integrated circuit that attempts to improve power efficiency is provided. The methodology includes simulating the design under one or more power stimuli, where the power stimuli are known to cause high power consumption (e.g. in previous designs of the integrated circuit, the power stimuli may have caused power consumption). A set of nets within the integrated circuit may be identified that have the highest activity in the simulation (e.g. the highest amount of switching). The methodology may include providing data to the routing tool that is to route the nets in the integrated circuit. The data may indicate constraints for the set of nets, to help reduce dynamic power on these nets. Power efficiency of the integrated circuit may be improved if the routing tool is able to honor the constraints.

  • Patent number: 9255022
    Abstract: The invention is directed to systems and methods of biological and chemical treatment of wastewater comprising organic nitrogen compounds. Systems may include: an aerobic reactor, a first separation module for separating liquid and solid components of the wastewater; an oxidation module for removing organic materials from the wastewater; and a post-anoxic reactor for denitrifying at least a portion of the wastewater. Systems may include a second separation module and various feedback recycle lines between the components. Methods may include: degrading by the aerobic reactor more than 95% of organic compounds to ammonia, oxidizing by the oxidation module at least a portion of the ammonia to nitrates, and degrading by the post-anoxic reactor at least a portion of the nitrates to nitrogen gas and water. Systems and methods may reduce total organic carbon of the wastewater by more than 90%, and total nitrogen of the wastewater by more than 90%.

  • Patent number: 9135568
    Abstract: The most common automated search methods produce less-than-ideal results when searching online resumes, profiles, and the like (“biographies”) for the identities of people with a searcher-selected qualification (“candidates”). Keywords, their proximities, and their repetitions are less informative in biographies than in other informational documents. Similarly, chains of social connection (“referral paths”) do not always reveal the likelihood or ease of a searcher's introduction to a candidate. In both cases, the display order of results may be unrelated to any estimate of merit. To answer the question “Whom do I need and how do I reach them?” a classifier system uses heuristics or algorithms adapted to match the reactions of human experts on the selected qualifications. Terms in biographies, regardless of structure, are standardized and disambiguated for accurate comparisons, meaningful context is preserved, and biographies and referral paths are scored based on expected usefulness to the searcher.

  • Publication number: 20140263043
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to systems and methods of treating wastewater. The present invention may include a method of treating such wastewater comprising selenium in the form of water soluble selenates, selenites, and/or selenides, the method including: a chemical/biological treatment process, causing the water soluble selenates, selenites, and/or selenides in the wastewater to be converted into insoluble elemental selenium; and a physical treatment process, trapping the insoluble elemental selenium in a filtration device.
