Is a product that consist of a toothbrush, a waterproof container and anti-bacterial liquid. The product allows the toothbrush to be held in an anti-bacterial liquid when not in use to prevent the growth/cultivation of berms, bacteria and other micro-organisms. In essence it is a small container which holds the liquid, the toothbrush is specifically designed to sit head first in this container and the shape creates a seal to prevent any other objects/bacteria etc from entering the liquid. The liquid within the container covers the entire head of the brush killing a large percentage of germs and protecting it from germ cultivation. The toothbrush remains within at all time when not being used.

The present disclosure provides a device for characterising a chromatic property of foodstuff. The device comprises a light source arranged to emit light having at least two wavelengths or wavelength ranges. The light source is further arranged to direct the light to a surface of at least the foodstuff. The device also comprises a detector positioned to detect at least a portion of reflected light and arranged to generate an output that is indicative of an intensity of detected reflected light. The device is arranged such that respective outputs are generated for the at least two wavelengths or wavelength ranges. A relation between the output for one of the at least two wavelengths or wavelength ranges and the output for the other or another one of the at least two wavelengths or wavelength ranges is indicative of the chromatic property of the surface of the foodstuff.

||PCT/AU2013/001124||RESMED LIMITED||SEMEN, Timothy|
A method and system assists in management of data associated with a home medical equipment (HME) device provided to a patient. An HME identifier may be received by a physician terminal or an HME provider terminal. In an example, an HME identifier may be stored, encoded, engraved or otherwise applied to a component of an HME device such as a removable storage medium (e.g., an SD card). A records management system may then be searched for a patient record associated with the HME device identifier based on retrieval of the identifier from the component. If a patient record is found, the identity of the patient may be verified. Optionally, if no such patient record is found, then a new patient record associated with the HME identifier may be created.

||PCT/AU2013/001133||ISELECT LTD||WALLER, Damien Michael Trevor|
A method for scheduling outbound communications to sales leads based, at least partly, on a model of customer behaviour derived from (i) customer data gathered from a plurality of customers that initiated contact with an electronic communications interface, and (ii) time data recording for each of the customers a time or time period at which the customer interacted with the electronic communications interface. The model predicts, for one or more time periods and segments of a population, a likelihood of successfully engaging with a person from the segment of the population. The scheduling includes prioritising the outbound communications to the sales leads during one or more defined time periods.

||PCT/AU2013/001151||YEOMANS, Allan James||YEOMANS, Allan James|
A method of and apparatus (41) for determining the organic carbon content of soil in heated air or gas is forced through a soil sample (36) to burn off or oxidise organic carbon in the sample with the change of weight of the sample (36) indicating the carbon content in the soil sample (36) and thus the soil from which the sample (36) is taken. The apparatus (41) includes a housing (47) in which one or more soil samples (36) may be located, a heater unit (51) for heating the air or gas for passage through the soil samples (36) to burn off organic materials therein including organic carbon. The apparatus (41) also includes a weighing device (76) which enables the change of weight of the soil samples (36) to be determined whilst the samples (36) remain within the housing (47).

||PCT/AU2013/001153||SOLAR SAILOR PTY LTD||DANE, Robert|
The present invention relates broadly to a rigid wing (10) which in its preferred embodiment is a rigid wing sail fitted to a water-borne vessel. The rigid wing sail (10) comprises a pair of elongate rigid panels (12A) and (12B), and a hinge element designated generally as (14) coupled to the panels (12/B) to permit pivotal movement of the panels (12A/B) relative to one another. Each of the pair of panels such as (12A) includes an adjoining edge (16A) and an opposing lateral edge (18A). The hinge element (14) is coupled to the panels (12A/B) at the respective adjoining edges (16A/B) to form either: 1) a closed configuration of the wing (10) with lateral edges (18A/B) of respective panels (12A/B) positioned adjacent one another wherein the rigid wing sail (10) is closed; or 2) an open configuration of the wing (10) with the lateral edges (18A/B) of the respective panels (12A/B) separated from one another wherein the rigid wing sail (10) is set at a variable camber.
