B) at least partially curing and/or partially drying the poured material (2), during which step b) the properties of the material and/or thermal state variables of a defined area around the belt (3) are recorded by means of at least one non-invasive spectroscopic method.. .

Tension loop for a spinal cord stimulator

An electrical stimulation device comprises a stimulation lead with a tension section to prevent induction of an electrical current when the electrical stimulation device is in the presence of a magnetic field generated by a device such as an mri machine. The tension section is shaped to organize excess length of the stimulation lead while providing a variable length between a distal end of the stimulation lead and an electrical source.

Dihydropyridinone mgat2 inhibitors

Or a stereoisomer, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof, wherein all of the variables are as defined herein. These compounds are monoacylglycerol acyltransferase type 2 (mgat2) inhibitors which may be used as medicaments..

Blood-collecting needle having variable length and provided with pain, inflammation, and risk prevention functions

A blood-collecting needle is provided in which, when a disposable blood-collecting needle is inserted into a semiautomatic blood collection device to collect blood, the blood-collecting needle not only reduces pain, but achieves perfect sanitation to relieve the sense of danger and anxiety felt by a user, and the length of the blood-collecting needle is freely changed in multiple stages. A multi-bump disposed on a lower end of a main body may smoothly pass through a needle passage of the blood collection device to reduce pain while instantly contacting the peripheral epidermis during self-injection.

Method and dynamically presenting content using an interface for setting conditional network destinations

Qr codes or the like are used in hardlink applications, by which different users may receive different information in response to a user's interaction with a touchpoint. The content delivered to a particular user in response to a hardlink code or a presented hyperlink may be dependent on the time of the scan, the geographic location of the user, a weather condition at the geographical location, personal information associated with the user, a number of previous scans of the code by prior individuals, and any combination of the these or other variables, which may be determined by an originator of the qr code or other party.

Design and optimization of partial response pulse shape filter

A method and system for configuring one or both of a transmitter pulse-shaping filter and a receiver pulse-shaping filter to generate a total partial response that incorporates a predetermined amount of inter-symbol interference (isi), based on one or more defined performance-related variables and one or more set constraints that are applicable to one or both of the transmitter pulse-shaping filter and the receiver pulse-shaping filters. The predetermined amount of isi is determined based on an estimation process during extraction of data from an output of the receiver pulse-shaping filter, such that performance of total partial response based communication matches or surpasses performance of communication incorporating filtering based on no or near-zero isi.

Fuel savings training needs prediction and alert system

A novel fuel savings training needs prediction and alert system is capable of calculating a probability of persistent future fuel waste of a particular driver based on recent driving patterns originating from real-time on-board diagnostics (obd) information of a vehicle. The fuel savings training needs prediction and alert system is also configured to generate and transmit one or more action items and alerts to a vehicle fleet operations manager or another supervisory personnel for improving driving behaviors of the particular driver.

Privacy-preserving data collection, publication, and analysis

A data collection procedure is described, which can be performed automatically for each subject of a study as the participant produces the data being collected. In one case, the procedure transforms the data matrix x (of the participants' data) to axb, where matrix a is a row operator that transforms data records (cases) in x and matrix b is a column operator that transforms data attributes (variables) in x, and the keys to generate these random operators are held separately by different parties.

Cyber security

Systems and methods that use probabilistic grammatical inference and statistical data analysis techniques to characterize the behavior of systems in terms of a low dimensional set of summary variables and, on the basis of these models, detect anomalous behaviors are disclosed. The disclosed information-theoretic system and method exploit the properties of information to deduce a structure for information flow and management.
