A system and method is described that improves the intelligibility of a far-end telephone speech signal to a user of a telephony device in the presence of near-end background noise. As described herein, the system and method improves the intelligibility of the far-end telephone speech signal in a manner that does not require user input and that minimizes the distortion of the far-end telephone speech signal.

Periprosthetic fracture management enhancements
The present invention provides for a variety of fracture fixation options should a fracture occur after total hip arthroplasty or total knee arthroplasty, and provides associated methods and apparatus for application of provided fixation. The ability to pre-engineer fracture fixation contingent solutions into femoral or tibial components provides for a distinct clinical advantage in the planning and execution for periprosthetic fracture fixation.

Ligation enhancement
Compositions and methods are provided for enhancing enzymatic ligation between nucleic acid fragments that relies on one or more small molecule enhancers having a size of less than 1000 daltons. For example, enhancement of ligation efficiencies are observed for double-stranded nucleic acid fragments that are blunt-ended, have a single nucleotide overhang at the ligation end, or have staggered ends compared to ligation under similar conditions in the absence of the one or more small molecule ligation enhancer.

Addition of carboxyl groups plasma during etching for interconnect reliability enhancement
The present disclosure is directed to a method of manufacturing a semiconductor structure in which a low-k dielectric layer is formed over a semiconductor substrate. Features can be formed proximate to the low-k dielectric layer by plasma etching with a plasma formed of a mixture of a co2, co, or carboxyl-containing source gas and a fluorine-containing source gas.
