*** QUALCOMM Assigned Patent for Methods and Apparatus for Transmitting Signals Facilitating Antenna Control ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 10 -- QUALCOMM, San Diego, has been assigned a patent (8,325,826) developed by Rajiv Laroia, Basking Ridge, N.J., Junyi Li, Bedminster, N.J., and Frank A. Lane, Asbury, N.J., for "methods and apparatus for transmitting signals facilitating antenna control." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Base stations transmit strip signals using strip signal segments and self supporting modulation scheme techniques facilitating rapid channel estimate. A strip segment occupies one OFDM symbol time interval and uses a set of downlink tones; some, e.g., half, of the tones are left unused facilitating SIR measurement. The strip segments are advantageously timed to correspond to uplink access intervals in which connected wireless terminals do not typically transmit uplink signals. Connected wireless terminals including: multiple antennas used in combination, an antenna duplex module, single RF receiver chain and single RF transmitter chain, switch antenna coefficient combinations based on strip signal segment timing. The wireless terminal determines an independent downlink channel quality measurement, e.g., SNR and/or SIR for each strip signal segment and for on-going non-strip signaling. The wireless terminal compares channel quality measurements and selects an antenna coefficient combination to be used during non-strip signaling intervals obtaining very good antenna gain." The patent application was filed on Oct. 13, 2005 (11/249,770). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,25,826.PN.&OS=PN/83,25,826&RS=PN/83,25,826 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

The space between the extreme edges of the top panel and the ventilation grids forms or defines an overhang configured to receive edges of shingles in a course of shingles installed next to the vent section and to inhibit the edges of the shingles from rising up. The ridge vent sections also have depending deflectors for deflecting blowing rain and snow that might enter through the ventilation grids and filter fabric may be affixed to the bottom of the ridge vent sections to provide additional deflection of rain and snow. The ridge ventilation system is particularly useful with slate or slate-style roofs and the vent sections are sized so that ridge cap slates extend beyond the extreme edges of the sections to hide substantially the ridge ventilation system from view."

*** Ranir Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 10 -- Ranir, Grand Rapids, Mich., has been assigned a patent (8,322,344) developed by Jeffrey Joe Fisher, Ada, Mich., Scott Salmon, Tenafly, N.J., and Josh Hartl, Bloomfield, N.J., for an oral orthosis.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An oral orthosis includes a holder in the shape of a mouthpiece, including a curved arcuate trough-like upper section which receives a formable material. The formable material does not occupy the entire trough but rather includes voids between the formable material and the inner surfaces of trough of the holder to allow expansion of the formable material into the voids during the molding process when tooth pressure is placed on the formable material. This design results in elimination of the excess formable material which otherwise would require removal by trimming. Additionally, the formable material is placed in the trough in a configuration which includes indexing indentations along the centerline of the material, such that, during the molding process, the mouthpiece containing the formable material is easily centered along the edges of the user's teeth to provide a precise fitting."
