||PCT/US2012/025155||THOMSON LICENSING||WALKER, Mark Leroy|
Eye contact between remote and local video conference participants (201, 101) is advantageously maintained by displaying the face of a remote video conference so the remote video conference participant having his or her eyes positioned in accordance with information indicative of image capture of the local video conference participant. In this way, substantial alignment can be achieved between the remote participant's eyes with those of the local participant.
||WO||WO/2014/055082 - COMPOSITE CASTING WHEELS||10.04.2014||
Composite casting wheels are disclosed. A plurality of spouts are removeably coupled to a rim formed of a composite material. The rim may be formed as a single unit of the composite material. The rim may be formed from a plurality of segments formed of the composite material. The composite material insulates molten metal contained in the rim and lowers a casting temperature of the molten metal. The composite material also prevents molten metal from freezing and/or sticking to the spouts and the rim.

||PCT/US2012/060533||GOOGLE INC.||FILEV, Momchil|
Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for adjusting ordinal positions for content item slots in response to determining that a content item slot with a highest slot ordinal position relative to the other content item slots in a resource is not within a viewport area. Adjusting the adjusting ordinal positions of either the content item slots or content items to be served in the content item slots ensures that a content item slot in the viewport displays a content item with a highest respective ordinal position in a ranking relative to other content items is rendered in the content item slot within the viewport area.
||WO||WO/2014/055079 - ELECTRONIC AUCTIONS OVER MOBILE COMMUNICATION NETWORKS||10.04.2014||
||PCT/US2012/058723||VISA INTERNATIONAL SERVICE ASSOCIATION||JONES, Bradley Richard|
Embodiments of the invention provide systems and methods for using a mobile money platform to enable users to auction items by broadcasting offer messages over wireless communication networks and receiving back bid messages from other users, and to settle purchase transactions by transferring money between users' mobile money accounts. Embodiments further provide systems and methods for using a mobile money platform to provide an escrow feature for auction transactions. For example, the mobile money platform escrows money from a buyer's mobile money account and, upon receiving the buyer's approval, releases the escrowed money to the seller's mobile money account. The buyer may send such approval upon receiving satisfactory delivery of the items, and the approval may be given by sending an approval message over wireless communication networks to the mobile money platform.
||WO||WO/2014/055086 - GECKO-LIKE CONTAINER CAPPING SYSTEM AND METHODS||10.04.2014||
||PCT/US2012/059002||EMPIRE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT LLC||LONDERGAN, Timothy|
Methods, systems, caps, containers, and assemblies for a gecko-like container capping system are described. A gecko-like cap configured to cover an opening in a container may include an inner surface configured to mate with an opening surface of a container. Setae may be located on a surface of the cap and/or a surface of the container that are configured to oppose movement of the cap away from the container by creating an adhesion force between the inner surface and the opening surface. The cap may include one or more release mechanisms configured to deflect the inner surface away from the opening surface, thereby reducing the adhesion force such that the cap is removable from the container.

||PCT/US2012/058584||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC.||LOPEZ, Jean-Marc|
A flow control assembly can be disposed in a wellbore and can include a membrane that can be perforated in response to a pressure, such as a setting pressure, from an inner area of a tubing. Subsequent to the membrane being perforated, fluid can be allowed to flow from an area external to the tubing to an area internal to the tubing. The membrane may remain closed during a packer setting operation and be perforated subsequent to the packer setting operation.
||WO||WO/2014/055075 - PTO CONTROL SYSTEM||10.04.2014||
||PCT/US2012/058609||HUSQVARNA AB||DWYER, Sean|
A lawn care device may include a cutting deck housing at least one blade, an engine configured to selectively provide for rotation of the at least one blade responsive to selective coupling of the rotary power of the engine to the at least one blade via a power takeoff (PTO) clutch, and a PTO switch that is operable in two directions to engage or disengage the PTO clutch based on which one of the two directions the PTO switch is moved by a user. The PTO switch may be biased to return to a neutral position after each operation thereof. The PTO switch may be configured to perform at least one additional operational function responsive to sequential operation of the PTO switch in at least one of the two directions.

||PCT/US2012/059112||NOKIA CORPORATION||KOSKINEN, Jussi-Pekka|
Methods and apparatus, including computer program products, are provided for limiting connection setup after a failure. In one aspect there is provided a method. The method may include disconnecting, at a user equipment, a first radio resource control connection due to a failure; and determining, based on a state of at least one of the user equipment or an application included at the user equipment, whether to inhibit, after the failure, a connection setup by the user equipment. Related apparatus, systems, methods, and articles are also described.
||WO||WO/2014/055089 - WELL TOOL WITH DYNAMIC METAL-TO-METAL SHAPE MEMORY MATERIAL SEAL||10.04.2014||
||PCT/US2012/059063||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC.||CARROLL, Sean|
A well tool can include sealing surfaces, and a shape memory material seal which dynamically seals between the sealing surfaces with metal-to-metal contact between the shape memory material seal and each of the sealing surfaces. A method of sealing in a well tool can include forming a shape memory material seal, heat treating the seal, then deforming the seal, then installing the seal in the well tool, and then heating the seal, thereby causing the seal to expand into metal-to-metal sealing contact with a sealing surface which displaces relative to the shape memory material seal. A drill bit can include sealing surfaces formed on a cone and a journal of the drill bit, and a shape memory material seal which dynamically seals between the sealing surfaces with metal-to-metal contact between the shape memory material seal and each of the sealing surfaces.
