  • Publication number: 20060125624
    Abstract: An intelligent occupancy sensor, such as a Passive InfraRed (PIR) sensor, with variable adaptive timeout. When a person first walks into the room and, after a very short time, walks out of the room, the occupancy sensor operates with a short timeout. When, however, a person lingers in the room, the occupancy sensor switches to another mode of operation where the timeout increases or decreases based on the frequency that the sensor detects motion in the room and the amplitude and/or duration of the signal of the detected motion.

  • Publication number: 20050244407
    Abstract: This invention relates to a synergistic therapeutic combination of anti-cancer compounds which comprises a) a taxane, and b) a substance that binds to the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and blocks the ability of epidermal growth factor (EGF) to intitiate receptor activities which results in tumor growth inhibition, and optionally at least one pharmaceutically acceptable carrier for simultaneous, separate or sequential use.

  • Publication number: 20050174386
    Abstract: An inkjet printhead has a body and a heater chip attached thereto. A nozzle plate on the heater chip includes a periphery and plurality of nozzle holes. An encapsulant bead lines the periphery of the nozzle plate and has a leading edge extending in a direction away from the periphery toward the plurality of nozzle holes. The boundary of the bead embodies an irregular shape and the leading edge exists less than about 500 microns from any of the nozzle holes. A tape attaches to the nozzle plate and covers each of the nozzle holes. The tape does not, however, touch the encapsulant bead. Preferably, the tape has a narrow width portion shorter than a width of the nozzle plate. In this manner, the encapsulant bead may encroach upon the nozzle holes closer than heretofore known. In turn, the heater chip can have reduced size and silicon savings.

  • Publication number: 20040006621
    Abstract: The present invention provides a system and method for controlling whether a user may access certain Internet sites when using a computer. The system and method are carried out on a personal computer having a local ratings cache, a cache refresher, a local ratings interpreter and an allow-block list. When the computer user attempts to access an Internet site referenced by a specified Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”), the invention determines whether the URL is referenced on the allow-block list and, if so, allows or disallows access to the site referenced by the URL accordingly. If the URL is not referenced on the allow-block list, the invention obtains a content category from either the local ratings cache or, if not contained therein, a ratings service.

  • Patent number: 5694590
    Abstract: A tool for assisting an operator to detect security violations in a multilevel secure database. The database stores data classified at a plurality of security levels, where the different users of the database are cleared to different security levels and access the database through a multilevel secure database management system. Security constraints are represented in conceptual structures, rules, or frames, and operator communication with the constraint representation is provided by a user interface. An inference engine uses reasoning strategies on the security-constraint representations base to detect security violations in the database by inference.

  • Patent number: 5619821
    Abstract: A spring-loaded quick-release mechanism to a locking security grille is triggered by (i) manual activation, preferably through a foot switch, or (ii) fire, typically through a thermal fuse. Fins incorporated in, and/or affixed to the bars of, a security grille are preferably rotating, normally in phase, so as to serve as a louver or, when completely closed, an interlocked security shield, or panel. One locking release mechanism, which may optionally be quick release, has a sliding bar with alternate (i) extension and (ii) notch regions that respective engage the ends of solid, purely cylindrical, elongate prisms, normally cylindrical bars, to respective lock, and disengage, these prisms in a security grille. Finally, a security grille with standard universal retention assemblies variously serves to retain any, and any combinations, of tubular bars, solid bars, fins mounted to bars, and solid fins.

  • Patent number: 5567337
    Abstract: A block heater for the cooling fluid of an engine block has a main body with a surrounding flange at the front face for engaging into an aperture in the block. A clamping element attached to the rear face can be actuated by a screw which is rotated from the front face to pull the clamping element into engagement with the inside surface of the block to cooperate with the flange in a clamping action. The clamping member cooperates with the screw to be pulled forwardly. The rear face of the clamping member has a countersink around the threaded bore therethrough and the screw has a bore in the end face thereof so that a portion of the screw material can be worked into a flange surrounding the end of the screw to engage into the countersink portion. This arrangement prevents reverse rotation of the screw from releasing the clamping member for discharge into the engine compartment.

  • Patent number: 5023996
    Abstract: A combination handsaw providing one of a plurality of blades. A pair of blade housings are pivoted together at one end, supporting first and second blades of different types for cutting. The blade housings receive each of the blades in a retracted, non-cutting position, and permit deployment of the blades out one end of each respective housing for cutting operations. A utility knife is contained in one end of the housings, permitting yet another cutting blade or a single device.

  • Patent number: 4651449
    Abstract: A trench-digging chain mountable on a chain saw with no more than minor modification of shielding includes high, narrow cutters on the side of the chain closer to the engine and clutch of the chain saw power unit and low, wide carrier teeth on the opposite side of the chain. The narrow width permits installation of the chain in the clearance normally provided between a drive sprocket and the engine. The carrier teeth include a surface which is approximately horizontal during use, to carry material upwardly out of a trench being dug. Intermediate links include roots to be driven by the drive sprocket and slide in the peripheral guide channel of the saw bar.

  • Patent number: 4288077
    Abstract: This invention relates to a horse racing lottery game. The apparatus for the game comprises a racetrack having a plurality of starting positions and a finish line, a plurality of game pieces supported on the track and being movable therearound, there being less game pieces than players playing the game, and a plurality of groups of tickets corresponding to the game pieces such that each group has a plurality of tickets each having indicia corresponding to only one of the game pieces and indicia enabling each ticket to be distinguished from other tickets of the same group. Each player selects tickets of his choice and places the selected tickets of each group in a separate container pertaining to the respective game piece. The tickets are then shuffled, and one ticket is drawn at random from each container, thereby indicating which of the players is assigned to each of the horses running in the race.

  • Patent number: 3956517
    Abstract: A process for producing uniformly shaped chip-type products having a surface design thereon. The process provides chip-type products having a series of substantially parallel alternate arcuate ridges and grooves extending across both surfaces which effect a rippled appearance to the products wherein the rippled configuration is impressed only on one surface of the dough by a mill roll having an annularly grooved surface.
