Then, using the databases, the elements causing translation errors are substituted in the being translated documents with the corresponding equivalent constructs." The patent application was filed on May 18, 2010 (12/800,572). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,352,243&OS=8,352,243&RS=8,352,243 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.



*** Alcatel Lucent Assigned Patent for Signaling Method to Support Geo-location Emergency Services ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 15 -- Alcatel Lucent, Paris, has been assigned a patent (8,351,942) developed by Liwa Wang, Morris Plains, N.J., and Pengfei Zhu, Morris Plains, N.J., for a "signaling method to support geo-location emergency services." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "In a method to support geo-location emergency services in a wireless network, a request message is transmitted from a source base station of one vendor to a target base station of another vendor. For example, the request message might be sent subsequent to a wireless unit initiating an emergency services communication, where it is desired to determine the location of the wireless unit by radiolocation, or otherwise at the network level. Upon receiving the request message, the target base station transmits a report message to the source base station, which includes a one-way transmission delay (or other propagation delay information) of the wireless unit as measured at the target base station. Communication protocols in the network are configured so that there are no automatic transmissions of propagation delay information. Instead, base stations transmit propagation delay information only upon the receipt of request messages requesting the information." The patent application was filed on Nov. 27, 2007 (11/986,799). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,351,942&OS=8,351,942&RS=8,351,942 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** New Jersey Inventor Develops Patent for Light Distribution Using Tapered Waveguides in LED-based Tubular Lamps as Replacements of Linear Fluorescent Lamps ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 15 -- Mujibun Nisa Khan, Colts Neck, N.J., has developed a patent (8,348,467) for a "light distribution using tapered waveguides in LED-based tubular lamps as replacements of linear fluorescent lamps." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An LED replacement-lamp design concept comprising tapered waveguides to provide uniform and broad light distribution is disclosed.

*** LifeScan Scotland Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 15 -- LifeScan Scotland, United Kingdom, has been assigned a patent (8,348,843) developed by six co-inventors for a "method of inputting data into an analyte testing device." The co-inventors are Stanley Alan Young, North-Kessock, United Kingdom, David William Taylor, Alloa, United Kingdom, Allan Orr, Westhill, United Kingdom, Cheryl Neary, Boston, Nicola Canning, Inverness, United Kingdom, and Marc Daniel Stern, Morristown, N.J.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A meter is provided that includes an improved user interface that enables the user to take a specific action, leading them directly to data input options. Such a user interface could be used to input first selected information, such as whether a test was premeal or postmeal, immediately after receiving a result. Optionally, the user interface may include the ability to add an additional comment after inputting the first selected information. Provision of such a user interface would facilitate simpler capture of the first selected information each time the user performs a test, leading to an enhanced understanding of a patient's level of glycemic control. Designing a user interface to enable first selected information to be entered by a user directly after receiving a result is more likely to engage a patient by making it easy and simple to enter important information. This may enable capture of the information thought to be most pertinent e.g. premeal and postmeal information, enhancing the understanding by patients and their carers of the patient's control." The patent application was filed on July 7, 2011 (13/178,164).
